"...For me, the invitation was one of the most important elements of our wedding. I knew that this would be the first impression that our guests would have of our wedding & she truly exceeded our expectations in every single way, from the entire design process to the finished products. The response to our invitations was incredible. Almost every single person that received our invite reached out to me by text, email or call to say how much they loved them..."
"...I don’t think it would be fair to say that Caroline goes out of her way to make her clients feel extra special - I think that she just naturally CARES about people & her client’s happiness brings her true joy & THAT is what makes every handcrafted piece so amazing. Caroline’s style is so unique & her artistic abilities completely exceeded my expectations. Caroline is a true gem & I can’t wait for another wonderful reason to work with her again!"
"There aren’t enough compliments in the world I could give to Caroline & her Lovely Paper Things! The only thing better than her wonderful designs is her sweet personality. Caroline was a delight to work with & did an amazing job in helping us realize our vision for all of our wedding paper goods! She is a true artist & her Lovely Paper Things were a perfect fit for us as a couple & our wedding style & theme! I can’t wait until the time comes when we need more Lovely Paper Things!"
