    Absolutely blown away!

    I collaborated with Darra for a boho/woodland themed elopement last month and was completely BLOWN AWAY by the invitation suite that she designed. I gave her my vision and she ran with it in the best way possible! All of the little details were simply perfect! I would highly recommend her to anyone!

    Made a big part of postponing easy

    Dear Darling Design Studio made some awesome digital Change the Date cards for us. They were super easy to work with, quick, and did beautiful work!

    I love everything she made for me so much!

    Darra is seriously an amazing artist. I found her on Instagram and fell in love with her cosmic style. I reached out to get a custom jacket, envelopes, place cards and table numbers lettered for my wedding. Seriously every piece exceeded my expectations. It was so much more beautiful in person than it is online because you can see all of the attention to detail, the metallic elements, and the texture in her pieces. You can tell that she really loves what she does and takes the time to make sure each piece is perfect.

    Working with Darra, you are getting an artist that truly cares about you and your style and the message you want your wedding to convey. Her customer service was amazing. She kept us updated through out the whole process, sent us progress photos and proofs before she got started. She made sure that we were 100% happy with everything before it shipped to us. If we were local I would have hired her to do a lot more, but shipping was the only constraint. Even though she wasn’t local, I decided to go with her because she checked ever box on our list.

    If you’re thinking of hiring a Calligrapher or stationer, this is the one that you need! I will be telling every single engaged couple I know about her for the rest of my life!!!

    Stop Waiting and HIRE HER

    Okay, so listen...it's one thing for a client to love her work, but it's an entirely other situation to reeeally impress a fellow Wedding Vendor, but that is exactly what happened here!

    Having been in the industry so long as a Wedding Photographer, you see it all. From the boring to the amazing to the "just missed the mark", and it all becomes super repetitive after a while.

    My hubby and I were photographing a styled shoot that Dear Darling created the invitations and really cool place-cards for a few months ago. I instantly looked her up because I knew I had to work with her as much as possible.

    From then on it became an Instagram love affair with each others' work, and I am telling you right now that this woman does not make anything that isn't absolutely incredible. We had her create the most awesome 90's custom canvas backdrop for us, and will continue to send every couple her way that we can.

    So...stop what you're doing right now, put down the DIY materials, close out of that Minted tab, and HIRE Dear Darling for literally anything for your Wedding Day. You will not be disappointed!

    Darra is amazing at what she does.

    I originally found Darra on Instagram and I followed her work before I even got engaged because it was just so breath taking. Literally two days after my boyfriend popped the question, I sent her a message. I couldn’t wait to work with her. We started with our invitation suite design, and she made us the most uniquely colorful and artistic invitations I’ve ever seen (we got SO MANY compliments on them). She took the time to really listen to what we wanted and truly showed who we are on a few sheets of paper. Her use of color and texture and her ability to create something so one of a kind is amazing. She truly listened to what we wanted and made it a reality. She was also extremely transparent with us about printing costs, and after she was paid for her design fee ( which was only $175 for the whole suite), she sent us 3 printers. A budget one, a mid level, and a luxury one. We ended up going with the mid level, and she ordered the prints for us, took care of packing them up and lettered our envelopes as well.

    We are now working together to create our day of items ( place cards, table numbers, signs, etc) and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with.

    If you’re looking for a true artist that just wants to tell your love story, this is the girl for you.

    Beautiful and affordable

    The most beautiful calligraphy at an affordable price. She was quick and easy to work with, and I’m blown away by her skills on my wedding invites!

    She is Magic.

    Darra is AMAZING, everything is so perfect and she's so responsive and helpful. She's truly talented I can't say enough good things about her. I even asked for 2 extra envelopes last minute and she did it so quickly. I'm just obsessed with her.

    Gorgeous hand lettering!

    Darra's work is absolutely phenomenal and she was amazing to work with! She was extremely responsive to my messages, offering up great recommendations re: ink color, ink type, paper finish, and decorative details. After receiving my agate table numbers, I knew I had to have matching placecards; Darra was able to turn around my 150+ card request with less than two weeks notice. Would give 5 million stars if I could. Thank you!

    Dear Darling Design Studio is pure MAGIC!

    Darra is the epitome of a BOSS BABE who HUSTLES! Her dedication to her brand + to her clients is impeccable, and she is such a hard worker. I discovered her just a couple of short weeks before a styled shoot that I thought her art would be perfect for + I was so impressed when she cranked out two invitation suites AND tabletop items for two completely differently styled tables in literally less than a week.

    I love her work so much, that I recently ordered a custom painted jacket for my 30th birthday party, that she also created super quickly. She has so many other goodies as well, such as ornaments, jewelry, wall art + more. This girl is magic.

    I recommend Darra, Dear Darling Design Studio + Dear Darling Weddings to any bride (or art-loving gal!) looking for bright, colorful, fun, unique paper goods + more for your wedding, party and/or LIFE!

    Fantastic!! Beautiful invitations.

    Darra created beautiful, plantable invitations for my wedding, inspired by the eco-friendly and wildflower vibe I was going for! I couldn't be happier with them. When we had to postpone our date due to Covid-19, she even designed a notice for me to send to guests with the new wedding date. Darra is extremely talented, and I highly recommend her.
