"Mary Ellen is great to work with, and is so talented! I looked around a bit for a calligrapher whose style was versatile and fit my needs, and I am so glad I came across Mary Ellen. Not only is she professional and accommodating, but the calligraphy she did for my wedding envelopes came out beautifully and she was able to match the font I have on my invitations perfectly. She also did a custom rose gold ink for me which came out looking great. I will definitely recommend her to any friends or family members in the future looking to give their wedding invitations a special touch!"
