About Twinkle & Toast


Twinkle & Toast is a calligraphy and design studio specializing in modern wedding stationery.  We believe in meaningful invitations for inspired couples.  We get attached to our clients and have a hard time letting go once it's complete (cry face emoji).  Each marriage is remarkable and we want to set the tone for your epic day with a statement and truly tell your story.

Our studio was established in 2013 by Taryn Sutherland Gross in San Diego, California.  She has a background in art studio and wedding & event design.  With a desire and passion for the calligraphy discipline, the business was founded to focus exactly on just that.

We love custom wedding invitation suites and stationery, pointed pen calligraphy, illustration and other fun details that incorporate one-of-a-kind elements. Our processes include calligraphy, painting, text, digital printing, foil stamping, letterpress, die cutting and more.  See samples of past work in the photo galleries.

We like to respect to traditions when applicable, but adding your own new spin on things is always greatly welcomed.  We care about correspondence and don't take it lightly when you bring us on board for your most important day!

I never thought I’d be that bride who would care about what their wedding invitation looked like, until I found Twinkle & Toast. Even living on opposite sides of the country, [they] worked with me every step of the way to design the perfect wedding invitation! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

I just LOVE Taryn and everything that she creates... She helped us create the most unique and beautiful wedding invitation and day-of items for our wedding. She was amazing with working with me on different ideas, any changes that I needed, and also helped out with making sure I was watching the budget as well.

Above all, she is the sweetest person, who is honest and truly went above and beyond for us. We are so sad our wedding is over and that we won’t be able to keep creating new items together. Thank you for everything!

Taryn of Twinkle & Toast is amazing! [She] takes on every task with a smile and is willing to try writing on pretty much anything. Our guests couldn’t help but swoon over how pretty their names looked in her writing.

I [sent Taryn] a frantic email ... and she set a date to meet with me and we went over EVERYTHING! We talked like we were long lost friends, we shared photos and talked all sorts of wedding fun!

Some may think that silly details in a sign for your wedding are a wasted expense, I however, love these little details ... That’s just it though, they are OURS! Unique and created just for us holding those special memories from our wedding day!
