Sarah’s work is stunning! All of our guests complimented the beautiful calligraphy on our wedding invitations. As I was about to mail them at the post office, a woman in line behind me tapped on my shoulder and raved about how gorgeous they were. (And, in New York City, you know this is a rarity.) Sarah provided us with three ink color options for our purple envelopes, which was so helpful in choosing the best look. I would hire Sarah again in a second!

Sarah was such a pleasure to work with – one of my favorite wedding-related experiences. And the result (place cards and menus) was simply stunning! Moreover, she made it easy – picking up the cards and menus for me, and hand delivering the finished product. I’d recommend Sarah in a second!

I am an interior designer in New York. My best friend’s son asked me if I would “consult” on his upcoming wedding. I, of course said “yes,” but I knew that “consult” meant that I would be actually taking on the entire responsibility for the wedding, its style and substance. I first contacted Sarah through her website. I had talked to several other calligraphers who always told me how extremely busy they were. One was even very dictatorial and bossy! That was not going to fly with me. Sarah and I talked and I explained that I was not a wedding planner but that I knew what I wanted. We first met at a Starbucks in Union Square and I gave her the master lists and the first set of envelopes. It took two seconds to agree that one of her most beautiful traditional styles of script would be perfect and set the right tone exactly for the wedding. Some of the addresses were quite complex. All the names were also very specific for couples, married and unmarried, etc. We went through it all. She was very, very patient and explained that she designed each envelope individually, given all the complexity of modern usages. Sarah is especially aware of deadlines. We did the Saves, the Invitations (which received compliments from all the invitees who thought them works of art), the dinner place cards, the seating envelopes, and finally cards for the seating of the families at the wedding. The incredible thing is that we accomplished it all while she was planning her own wedding! She gave me, and therefore the bride and groom, the most elegant calligraphy and it was a major element in the success of the entire wedding. And I remind you, she is ever patient and only once because of subway issues did we not keep our scheduled appointment — my fault. I will NEVER do another wedding, but if I were, I’d make sure that Sarah was on board with me. And she is very nice!

When I first saw Sarah's portfolio of work, I knew she would be the calligrapher I needed for my wedding. From her wide variety of styles and fonts to her likeable demeanor to her intense work ethic, I felt like I had hit the calligrapher jackpot! Sarah used Copperplate script for both my outer envelopes and place cards. Not only did I get a lot of compliments on the invitations, but I know several people who actually kept their envelopes and place cards as keepsakes. In a city where everything regarding weddings is difficult, hiring Sarah was by far the best and easiest wedding decision I made.

I cannot stress this enough: Sarah was an absolute joy to work with, and my husband and I were amazingly lucky to find such a talented, personable, and efficient young artist to work with! Her calligraphy is one of the many reasons our wedding will be individually profiled in "The Knot" magazine in October 2010. Thank you, Sarah! We will be back! Maybe next time for baby announcementst!

We hired Sarah to hand-address our wedding invitations and were very pleased with the quality she delivered. She gave us a great price and was even able to speed up the process for us since we were short on time. Thanks, Sarah!

I worked with Sarah to write a poem for my husband on our one- year (paper) anniversary. Sarah was a true professional and a pleasure to work with. She worked within my time and budget restrains and even met up with me to hand-deliver the finished product -- the poem was written beautifully and the paper and font style, etc. were exactly as I had imagined them to be. I'll highly recommend Sarah and definitely plan to use her calligraphy services again in future!
