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!!Sent on 06/11/2020

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!Sent on 01/12/2020
