Hi I'm Melissa.jpg

(or Mel as most people call me!) I am the artist, designer, and calligrapher behind Gracefully Made! The wedding stationery and art that I create is timeless, elegant, and incorporates unique aspects of each couple. Gracefully Made was created to provide an effortless and personal wedding paper experience! 

I grew up in the creative city of Birmingham, Alabama, and attended Auburn University, where I received degrees in Studio Art and Business. Gracefully Made began my senior year of college as I was planning my own wedding.  I instantly fell in love with the art of calligraphy and couldn’t wait to share that joy with other brides!
