ROMANTIC PAPER & FINE ART GOODS
Our heart is to create timeless, personalized keepsakes you will treasure for years to come.
At Shasta Bell Calligraphy, our heart is to create timeless, personalized keepsakes you will treasure for years to come. As the first impression your guests will have to your big day, your wedding paper goods should be a reflection of your story and new life together. We invite you to join us as we take our cues from romantic European architecture and the organic beauty of modern calligraphy to create bespoke fine art paper goods for your wedding day.
The Team: Since 2014, we have grown from a petite calligraphy outfit to a full-service invitation studio with the help of our Studio Manager, Lindsey Brooks. You can follow along with our studio happenings on instagram and as always, keep up with Ardis, our thoroughly fluffy, mischievous shop-cat.
Meet the Artist
I'm Shasta Bell. A year after our wedding, I walked into a friend's house and saw our DIY calligraphed wedding invitation, neatly displayed on her entry table, too lovely, she said, to throw away. That moment changed it all.
I began my journey into the world of calligraphy and handmade invitations while living in West Africa. Unable to take my trusty sewing machine with me, a pencil and sketchpad became the perfect creative outlet. What better way to spend my days than slow-crafting heirloom pieces in the middle of this fast-paced digital world.
Hi there! I'm Lindsey, and I work part time as the Studio Manager for Shasta Bell Calligraphy. This basically means I answer emails, coordinate schedules, prepare client proposals, and occasionally get to do the fun stuff -- production and assembly!
I'm also an amateur weaver and have experience in calligraphy (Shasta taught me!). I've known Shasta since 2014, and I am very blessed to call her my dear friend and neighbor as well as my boss. When I'm not playing in the studio, I work full time at the library at my alma mater, the University of Northwestern - St. Paul. I live in Northeast Minneapolis with my husband, Wyatt, and our kitty Monty. We love cooking, exploring, playing board games, and sharing fellowship with friends.
I'm Amelia Vang and I'm a graphic designer, calligrapher, and an aspirationalist. My free time consists of drinking a cup of tea, watching a good tv show, or hanging out with my loved ones. My love for calligraphy started in 2014 when I started watching Youtubers use these amazing "brush markers" and gave them a try myself. From there on, I've never stopped loving and learning the art of calligraphy.
As a production assistant for Shasta, I help around with almost anything that is needed in the studio, from sweeping the floor to assembling wedding suites and more!
