    Nancy from The Bowerbird made my wedding invitations reflect my wedding vision perfectly. She went above and beyond to craft the most gorgeous wedding invitations for me. She is professional, knowledgable, and caring. She listens to what you want, but is exceptionally knowledgable about all things "old school etiquette," for those who want to know (like my mother). EVERYONE keeps calling to say how much they love the invitations. She also helped us with table numbers and place cards, matching the ink and paper colors to the invitations PERFECTLY. She really cares about what she does. Appointments with her can run a little long, so put aside some time - it's well worth it, and you get a product you'll love. It's on the expensive end, but you 100% get what you pay for! I would recommend her to ANYONE!!!
