About me

Ever since I was little, I was always creating and designing something. I didn't know where my career was going to take me until it was time to plan my own wedding. I was having so much fun creating and planning our special day, with all the details, it was then I knew I had to go into the wedding industry. While preparing our wedding I started to teach myself calligraphy and attended a few classes here in Annapolis, Maryland.  I hand-lettered names and table numbers on oyster shells as escort cards, which fit the theme for our beach wedding and I created my first signature drink sign! That fall of 2018, after our wedding, is when I started Kate Slayton Lettering where I will continue to create items for weddings and home decor!  I can’t wait to meet & work with you!

About my family

Meet my husband Kevin! Kevin and I have been together for 8 years and married for 3! We got married on June 30, 2018, which is my parents’ anniversary and my great grandparents’ anniversary (it was planned!). Just outside of Annapolis Maryland, we live in a little beach cottage that we love and call home. We have a crazy golden doodle puppy named Cali Dune! Kevin is a neurosurgical PA and works with me for KSL on all of his days off. If you are local to Annapolis, I am sure you have already met or will meet him soon as he attends all my events + pop-ups!
