Another amazing review!

I could not have been more thrilled with my client Beth. As you'll recall, she and I attended the same college (albeit at different times) and it was so lovely to be able to design her wedding programs. Thank you so much for this glowing review on WeddingWire.

"Valerie is awesome, professional, artistic, patient, and aims to please. She designed the cover of my wedding program for me and did the text layout. She offered the text she had written for me to use, which is a nice perk. In the end, I decided to write my own text and had Valerie format it for me.

It took me longer than I thought to get that together and in the end, I had to pay a rush fee to have the job done in time. But Valerie got it done very quickly. I forget the exact timing, but I think it was less than 3 weeks before my wedding that I finally got the text to her. I'm very glad I had Valerie do the design, even with the rush fee. She did a MUCH better job than I ever could have done on my own and it would have taken me so long to try to do it on my own. I told her what I wanted and she did the design perfectly - incorporating both my and my finace's English and Hebrew names as well as the English and Hebrew date, and a quote in English and Hebrew. It looks beautiful. Also, the text layout was perfect.

I was very particular about layout and spacing and Valerie was so patient with me. She sent revisions quickly, with out seeming put out, and with out making me feel like I was being a difficult customer. In the end the program design was perfect. I love it. I got a lot of compliments on it at the wedding too.

I highly recommend using Valerie to design your programs. If we were custom designing anything else, like a logo or label, I would have hired her for that too, but the program was the only thing we did like this."

Custom wedding program for Beth and Robert

I was so excited to be contacted by Beth to design her wedding program, especially because she, her fiance, and I all graduated from the same small university! Her wedding is this weekend in Massachusetts, and I want to wish her all the best in her marriage.

The wedding program will be printed on 8.5x11 sheets of paper and folded vertically to create an elongated tea-style effect. The cover will be printed on a soft yellow, and the inside will be on white. The blank page on the second image refers to the inside of the cover, which will be left empty. All last names have been removed. Mazel tov to Beth and Robert!
