- Sweet words from my thoughtful clients -
"Nicole was such a pleasure to work with. She has such a friendly personality but when it came to creating a design for my wedding, she was all business! Nikki created all the stationary and decor for my wedding day, rehearsal dinner, and bridal shower. She designed thank you cards, invitations, place cards, name tags, table number displays, as well as signs and gift tags. Nikki is talented and was born with an eye for what looks good, but she is also capable of handling the most particular customers. Like some women, they dream about their wedding day their entire life, and have a “vision” when it comes to what they want. She was able to take my vision and very extensive instructions and create something beautiful for each occasion. Our guests definitely noticed all of the details because her creativity stood out. Her designs were classy, chic, and unique. Not only is Nicole a gifted artist; her communication skills and turnaround time is impressive. Hire Nicole Whitney. You will not regret it."
"Working with Nicole was such a comforting, easy experience. Wedding invitations are a very personal piece of wedding prep, and the guests' first hint about what to expect. Starting the process seemed overwhelming at first, but as soon as I explained what I was looking for to Nicole, everything fell into place! She was able to take my vision and create something I never would have found anywhere else. After falling in love with the invitation suite she created for me, I decided to have her create some more pieces for our day, including dinner menus. Nicole went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect, and it truly was!"
"Words cannot describe how much I love the paper suites Nicole created for my wedding. The menu card was bold, beautiful and I loved the custom font she created. The welcome card and map was even better than I had imagined, and the quality of work proved to be well worth the investment. She was so prompt and always responded in a very timely matter. She delivered top quality work and understood exactly what I was envisioning from the start. Thank you so much for all your wonderful help! Forever a loyal customer."
"I gave Nicole an idea for my bridal shower and she ran with it! In no time, Nicole was able to bring my idea to life! She customized name tags for my guests, the menu, a hash tag sign and my shower favors. They were a true hit, so no wonder I asked her to help me design my wedding next! Nicole is so creative, timely, and organized that it was such a breeze working with her. She was able to understand my style and create customized signs. Nicole is very reliable and I truly feel like there is nothing she can’t do! She customized my signature drink sign, a sign for my “generations of love” table, our guest book sign and many more. The best part about working with Nicole is her responsiveness. There were many times that I sent her an email about an idea and she promptly wrote me back. I can’t say enough great things about Nicole and I would totally recommend her to anyone planning any event in the future!"
