So happy with Elissa's work. She created our ketubah (Jewish wedding contract) - she did the design, color, and English and Hebrew calligraphy. She did a fantastic job! We gave her quite a challenge by providing our own detailed border, but she worked hard to use our design and even improve it. She was always very responsive, very clear about expectations and pricing, and so nice. She even mounted it for us and gave us pens for the signing! I can't wait to get it framed and display it!

Elissa's work is beautiful; she calligraphied my vows as a first anniversary gift. Additionally, she was a pleasure to work with. I preferred to email and she was prompt with responses, samples and suggestions. She provided a closely accurate estimate of the work prior to beginning, which is was also appreciated. I will certainly recommend her work.

My fiancee and I hired Elissa to calligraph a ketubah for our same-sex Jewish wedding. She was wonderful to work with. She is friendly and personable, and very accommodating in making the changes necessary to create a piece for a same-sex couple. The ketubah she created for us was gorgeous and exactly what we wanted. Her Hebrew calligraphy is every bit as gorgeous as the English. Elissa also responds very quickly to emails and is up front about the timetable and cost of her work- it was worth every penny. We will be recommending her to all of our friends with upcoming weddings!
