About this Vendor

Everything is a little sweeter in script.

I have such a great love for the art of handlettering and modern calligraphy. (Steady hands help, too.) I am based out of NYC, but also have roots in Washington DC, and Martha's Vineyard! I can write on anything from paper to rocks: trust me with your cherished items and I'll create a handwritten keepsake from your special day. No job is too small and my styles vary from casual and quirky to elegant and flourished. I love using everything from shimmering metallic inks to the classic black with a matte finish, but can definitely jive with JellyRolls and a good Sharpie. (You'd be surprised.) All can be wielded to create your customized finished product which will enhance the aesthetic of that special day!

The single best piece of advice anyone can give you during this time is to run, do not walk, to Order She Wrote for your calligraphy. I have never ever received such feedback on anything I have ever put out into the universe. The invitations were unbelievable and gorgeous and... Read More done on time. I also had Joanna do table overlays where she wrote and drew on butcher paper and my guests went crazy. She is very talented. I cannot say enough good things. her writing is beautiful, she is so easy to work with and she is smart! 1000% satisfied!!

Joanna was the absolute best! I could not have been happier with all that she did for us. From our invitations, place cards and menu design, Joanna created beautiful pieces for our wedding day.

She added a lovely and personal touch and was a pleasure to work with.

I reached out to Joanna from Order She Wrote to make custom chalkboard signage and it is absolutely beautiful!

Read More New York, but the distance wasn't an issue at all.

Joanna was simply the most professional, creative and helpful vendor I worked with.

Meet The Owner


I am an actor who fell in love with a hobby (that my mom thought I should look into because I had really good handwriting--thanks mom) that has now become my beloved business. I love meeting couples and their families, particularly sharing the collaborative effort that makes weddings so exciting and unique each time. Since 2015, I have provided for countless weddings, parties, special events, and created many custom pieces that will last for years to come. I offer a variety of styles (each named after the most important loved ones in my life!) which accommodates a range of budgets.
