Second to my dress, my invitations were my top wedding priority. I carefully picked out our invitation and knew I needed a calligrapher that would take them to the next level. I contacted Christine to see if she would be able to replicate a cursive script on our invitations into the calligraphy on the inner and outer envelopes, within days she had turned around a beautiful sample that looked identical to the invitations. It was simply stunning! As Christine worked on our inner and outer envelopes she was always in constant communication and handled everything with extreme professionalism. Our invitations went out last weekend and I wish I had a dollar for each guest who has complimented on the calligraphy. We've even had some people call and ask if that was done by hand or a machine - it looks THAT good! She is without a doubt one of my favorite vendors who we've worked with throughout the wedding planning process. If you have have the opportunity to work with Christine, make sure you do - you won't regret it!

We are so happy we chose Cristine to calligrapher our envelopes for our invitations for our wedding 10/5/12! She did a beautiful job in a charcoal gray in the Grandeur style to match our invitations. She sent us several samples initially which was helpful to see in person. We had considered simply getting the addresses printed on the envelopes at a local print shop until my mom found Cristine's website. Her prices are very reasonable and she gives you the exact dates she needs them by and will have them done to make sure they are sent out to your guests on time. There were a few where she forgot to finish the y's and g's but she fixed it very quickly for us. I think it really makes a statement to see a beautiful hand calligraphed envelope when you receive the wedding invitation. My recommendation to all (we made sure to do this) is to get them "hand stamped" at the post office when you send them out so as not to have that machine black ink running across the invitation and ruining the gorgeous work by Cristine! Highly highly recommend.

The one 'extra' that I had to have was wedding invitation envelopes that were written out by a calligrapher...and boy am I glad that I did and that I picked Cristine to do them!
Cristine is extremely professional in the way she deals with brides, but she also has a friendly personality that makes it fun and easy to communicate with her through email :)
Cristine came to my house for our initial meeting to pick up the envelopes and place cards and thereafter she mailed me the finished products (very carefully boxed and wrapped with pretty tissue paper).
It was easy to get the information to Cristine, nothing complicated, just a simple excel sheet with the names (she provides the template to work off of).
Cristine is great with delivering within the timeframe she says she will and is great with staying in touch, something which is super important when you're a bride trying to stay organized!
The calligraphy was beyond beautiful, it was exceptional! When guests opened their mailboxes and saw the calligraphy I wanted them to immediately know that they were about to open something special. And that is exactly what happened. We got a lot of compliments on the calligraphy and how it really made our wedding that much more elegant.
I would definitely recommend letting Cristine do your calligraphy, she has such a steady hand and a gorgeous style of writing, you won't be disappointed!
First impressions are everything...
Let us provide calligraphy that reflects the type of wedding you’ve planned. Your guests will immediately know they are invited to something special as soon as they open their mailbox. From simple to extravagant, contemporary to traditional, we also offer custom designed Wedding Invitation Suites.
