Carolyn is great to work with; very friendly, and knowledgeable. We came into our first appointment not really knowing what we wanted, or how much we wanted to spend. She spent a lot of time providing examples/options from her expansive portfolio within the price point we were hoping to spend. Additionally, Carolyn has a great eye for what style and font works for the type of wedding you are looking to have. From invitations to escort cards, table numbers, etc. We highly recommend you meet with her!

I cannot say anything but amazing things about Quintessence Papers. I worked with Carolyn on my wedding invitations and all of the day of paper goods (programs, escort cards, ect.). She was extremely helpful and had a lot of great ideas to make our wedding unique. For the beautiful work that she did she has very reasonable prices and I could not be any happier with the prices. She was always very easy to communicate with and was very accommodating to change anything we asked, this also went outside of helping with paper goods but also with other details for the wedding. I highly recommend working with her!

Carolyn is incredible! She is very organized, thoughtful, and detail oriented. I used her for multiple items, including: invites, save the dates, napkins, welcome letters, table numbers, escort cards, etc. She has such a warm personality and really wants your wedding to be perfect! I am a total planner and felt so at ease with her throughout the entire process. I always knew that I wouldn't forget any details with her by my side:) She definitely adds to the excitement of wedding planning, making you feel so special as the bride! I HIGHLY recommend using her!
