Dreaming of Calligraphy for Your wedding?

you’re in the right place

Hannah Suite_3.jpg


You just got engaged and can’t wait to tell people the news! Save the Dates and invitations are one of the first things on your to-do list, but you don’t know where to begin and you definitely don’t have the time to figure it out. There are cakes to taste, after all!

You need someone who can take your ideas and make them into the wedding paper of your dreams, all while keeping everything on time and on budget with an “it’s handled” approach.

I get it, and that’s where i come in!

I’m here to help you make sense of it all. I’ve been there and I understand how overwhelming it can be. I want to make sure you and your invitations stand out, wow your guests, enjoy a stress-free experience, and have a magazine-worthy wedding suite you can be proud of for years to come.

"Beautiful results, quick turnaround, & attention to detail!"

Hey there! I'm Alex, designer + artist at alexandra em.

I created alexandra em. lettering + design based on the simple belief that everyone deserves to have the perfect wedding.

Not too long ago, I was working my day job, dreaming about my own wedding invitations, and found myself stuck. Like a lot of other brides I talked to, I had a million questions and very few answers: How many invitations did I need? How should I word them? How do I make my invitations stand out?

Being an etiquette and stationery geek, and minus a wedding planner, I dove into doing the research and ended up loving every second! I combined what I learned with my background in lettering and BFA in graphic design to start creating invitations not only for my own wedding, but for brides wanting something custom, beautiful, and timeless. 

Using hand lettering, I create wedding paper and details that let your style shine through, resulting in truly personalized invitations that are anything but ordinary. Drawing on 10+ years of experience in design, print work, and project management, I love to use bold elements and color to put a modern, non-traditional twist on classic wedding invitation design, while keeping everything organized, on time, and stress-free. You won’t have to worry about a thing!

The Lady Behind the Pen


My name's Alex, and I run alexandra em., a lettering + design studio based in Dallas, TX. 

I was born in Nebraska, grew up in Iowa, and spent a few years each in Indiana, Illinois (Chicago!), and Virginia before deciding I'd had enough cold weather and packed my bags for Dallas. Thank goodness I did, because no sooner had I finished decorating my apartment, when Mr. Right came along. We got married a year and a half later and couldn't be happier! He is my favorite human, greatest love, and best friend. And it doesn't hurt that he shares my love of sugar and dogs!   

Speaking of dogs, we have two fur babies: Tess and Breega. They are sweet, sassy, and always make us smile. They spend their days snoozing around our house on all the various beds, blankets, and furniture available in our loft. 

We love to travel and can usually be found planning our next getaway. Our favorite place is usually anywhere with a beach, but San Miguel de Allende, Mexico has a special place in our hearts as well (it's where we spent our honeymoon!). 

Most evenings, you can find me hanging out with my better half and our pups, ghost-lettering with my finger on various surfaces, and enjoying a nice glass of wine. I can't wait to get to know you better!

Love and wedding bells, Alex
