    Amazing work-- I wish I had more events that needed calligraphy!

    Nerissa's work was AMAZING! She spent time making sure we got the exact font style we wanted. Pick up and drop off was super easy, her turnaround time was just right, price was great, and her communication throughout the whole timeline was also great. She even made us a little custom keepsake that we haven't opened yet but are very excited about! I HIGHLY recommend!!

    Wishing you all the best as your wedding day approaches (and I hope you enjoy your keepsake)...cheers!

    The perfect finishing touches

    Nerissa was hands down one my favorite wedding vendors to work with. We used her calligraphy services for our wedding invitation addresses - she understood my vision and was diligent in creating the perfect shade of rose to match our invitations. We received many compliments from our guests on the quality of the calligraphy. We also had Nerissa create several items for our special day, including place cards, table numbers, a welcome table sign, and a "Share the Love" hashtag sign (my personal favorite). Nerissa is incredibly professional, responsive, creative, and her talents are endless. I loved working with her so much that I have tried to find ways post-marriage to continue to work with her!

    Nerissa is an absolute dream!

    One of the best decisions I made while wedding planning was hiring Nerissa to do the lettering on my invitations and escort cards. Not only is her work is absolutely stunning, but she is so easy to work with and extremely helpful. I can not recommend her enough!!
