    Perfection

    Melinda鈥檚 work is one of a kind. Designing invites turned out to be my favorite part of wedding planning because of her. It was so much fun! She is so talented, and her work is so classy and stunning. She worked to make my vision come to life and she nailed it! She can do anything you ask for. We got SO many compliments on our invites. She is patient, extremely detail oriented, responsive, and professional. Melinda also designed our ceremony programs, escort cards, and table numbers. She made everything match perfectly and ran our theme throughout our wedding. I can鈥檛 recommend her enough.

    Top notch!!

    You have to work with Melinda! Her work is incredible! Everything is top notch! She truly cares about every single detail. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy every step of the way. Not only is she professional and probably the best at what she does, but she鈥檚 also very personable and fun to work with. You can tell she truly loves what she does.

    We started working with Melinda over a year ago. I wasn鈥檛 sure of what I wanted at first, but because Melinda asked the right questions, she was able to create save the dates and invitations that we fell in love with! Now we鈥檙e a few weeks away from our wedding working with her on our menus and place cards. Throughout this whole process she鈥檚 been attentive, patient and so helpful.

    I know that I will be working with Melinda for years to come on any future events.
