Hailey is the best

Ernest and Wordie is AMAZING. Hailey went above and beyond to make sure all of my wedding stationery was beyond perfect. Not only did she come up with the most creative ideas (the stationers I talked to before her brought no new ideas to the table), but she also made sure to implement the ideas in a unique way, that still fit the upscale, luxury vibe I was going for. No detail was overlooked by Hailey. She is organized, prompt, and just an absolute joy to work with. Designing our stationery was one of the most fun parts of wedding planning and it was all because we hired Hailey. I would highly recommend Ernest and Wordie!
