Adeline Margaret Lettering + Design


Learn more about Adeline Margaret Lettering + Design and its owner, designer, and creator, Addie Gerritts.


Hi, I'm Addie! Proudly named after my grandmothers, Anita Adeline and Margaret Ann, my business is my namesake. I'm an Irish gal from small town Wisconsin living in downtown Milwaukee and over the past few years, I have worked tirelessly to serve brides and families around Wisconsin and the rest of the US with what started out as just a hobby.

Since 2016, I have transformed that hobby into a wedding and event calligraphy business. While I am located in downtown Milwaukee, I have no limit on the geographic locations I serve. When I am not creating wedding and event decor, I pour my heart and energy into my career as Marketing Director of a technology and software consulting company based in Milwaukee.

I am obsessed with my giant family, our cocker spaniel Gus, and my two rescue kitties, Braille and Macie. My favorite place on earth is Kelly Lake. On any given night in Milwaukee, you can catch me with a PBR or a glass of chilled, cheap cabernet sauvignon in hand but when I am in my hometown or at the lake, I prefer a from-scratch Wisconsin whiskey old fashioned sour with maple syrup. I write every part of my day down and am constantly thinking about my to-do list, when I’ll ever be able to make it to yoga, or how I will survive whatever workout my marathon training entails for the day. I never remember to scrub the paint off my left hand and my hair is forever tossed into a mess on top of my head. My ideal weekend includes the Green Bay Packers (although I also love a good Milwaukee Bucks, Marquette basketball, or Brewers game) and enough down time to chat with my current or future clients.
