About Me

You’ve been told that your invitations will set the tone for your wedding. You want your guests to feel honored to have received such a lovely, beautifully addressed invitation–and not wonder, “What was she thinking?” The pressure is on, and your mind is swirling with questions.

  • What’s an “inner envelope”?
  • What about all these couples with different last names?
  • Which abbreviations are acceptable?

I can help you accomplish this daunting task with confidence and grace. I am an experienced professional calligrapher and etiquette expert. I can address your invitations correctly and, most importantly, beautifully.

My name is Carrie Shuping and I live in Crossnore, a tiny town located in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. I relocated my business here from Raleigh in 2015. I have been the sole proprietor of Calligraphy by Carrie since 2001 and specialize in invitation addressing services.

Working with bridal clients and sharing in the joyful anticipation of their special day is an honor. I love my job!
