If I could give Lydia 6 stars I would! She took the time to meet with me in the city (a few times!) and had a thorough understanding of what we were looking for. The invitations were beautiful - a combination of foil and letterpress in dark Navy and Gold. She helped us customize a fancier monogram and even drew a Sperry tent illustration for the response cards. Working with her was so easy and she takes such care and pride in her work. My mother in law also created the rehearsal dinner invitations with Lydia. Everything was gorgeous!Sent on 04/06/2017
The best part is that Lydia worked within my budget. I didn't think getting custom invitations of this level would be possible within our budget but Lydia made it happen!
Letterpress by Lydia's reply:Thank you very much, Kristin! I truly enjoyed working with you and bringing your vision to life. It was great fun creating your suite (and Rehearsal Dinner invitations). Thank you again for your kind words, it was my pleasure!

A True Artist
If you are looking for something memorable, classy and stylish- hire Lydia. She created a custom brand for our entire wedding and everything flowed from the invitations to the thank you notes. She was never frustrated with me when I tried to articulate what was in my head, and she exceeded my expectations of what was possible. She hand etched the most beautiful laurel that become the motif for our wedding. We received so many complements on the quality and the design- she is truly an artist. I loved working with her, and plan to use her for future invitations and personalized stationary. She went above and beyond, and I'm eternally grateful.Sent on 11/11/2018

Do not look any further for any of your wedding or party stationary!! Lydia can do it all. She was such a delight to work with and so accommodating. She is also FAST and her work is absolutely stunning. She is beyond creative and talented. She was by far the most enjoyable person to work with during my whole wedding process. Cannot wait to throw another party to work with her again!Sent on 08/30/2017
