"They Call Me Spindles is the brainchild of artist Courtney Larsen, and encompasses everything from stationery, to chalkboard signs, to fine art pieces. It is a mix of ready-made pieces and completely custom orders, and everything in between. It's all about making pieces that are unique to each bride, and helping to bring her vision to life through these special details. I love that I get to be part of someone's special day, and that my pieces help take a bride's vision to the next level. And along with that, I try to make pieces that can be decoration for your wedding, but that can transition into your new home as artwork and a wonderful reminder of your wedding day."
How to book her-
"Because so much of my work is custom, the best way to reach out is to send me an email! I love to meet for coffee, if schedules allow, and talk to my brides one-on-one, in order to better understand their unique wedding and style. This is also helpful because they can see and feel the different papers and
envelopes available, allowing for a fully customized experience."
How long has she been in business?
"TCMS has officially been in business since 2015, but I had been working on custom projects on the side for a couple of years prior before deciding to launch the company. And in March of last year, I decided it was time to follow my passion and turn it into my full time gig, one of the best decisions I've ever made."
What to know when booking her-
"The first thing to know is that I want to make your vision come to life, and give you an invitation suite that fits your style! I am super open to your ideas, and conversely, can offer my ideas if creativity is not your forte. I like to allow 4-6 weeks turn around time for invitation suites, but rushed orders are always possible. Clients should have a general idea of not only how many guests will be invited, but how many invitations they will need. The total number of guests is always greater than the invitations needed (as a lot of invitations will include multiple family members), so it is helpful to have this number in mind as well. This will ensure you will get a more accurate quote from your stationery vendor. Another thing I recommend is to spring for the addressed envelopes! It can be super stressful to try to address all your envelopes, on top of all the other things you are juggling before the wedding, and this is an area where you can really take off the stress and pressure. Mailing labels and printed envelopes are definitely appealing price-wise, but the added touch of calligraphy addresses will make your invitations even that more memorable."
They Call Me Spindles is a true artist. Her work can elevate your wedding and make it personal to you as a couple. The delicate calligraphy they do is just beyond stunning and we can't wait to host them at our February Mart and The Paseo!
