Working with Barbara was great. I was a little overwhelmed by invitation shops, but mostly knew what I wanted: classic but personalized.
I first asked about envelope addressing, but wound up having her create a custom suite for me including a ...
logo that we used in many other ways that made the whole event seem pulled together.
Barbara helped me through so much more of the process than she needed to, guiding me towards the wonderful Bernardsville Print Center for the actual printing of her custom design.
She was quick and thorough with all communication, and was able to adeptly and swiftly handle last minute additions and changes.
By the end of the process the invitation went from something that was on the back burner, to one of my favorite elements. I loved hearing feedback from guests that it was, without hyperbole, the nicest invitation they had ever seen, and set the stage for how the rest of the wedding would be.
