Meant To Be came recommended to me by Hitched, the bridal boutique in Georgetown where I designed and purchased our invitations. Hitched is a top-notch salon, so I knew anyone they suggested must be good. They gave me several calligraphers to research and choose from, but Michele and Meant To Be stood out immediately. She made the process so easy and even accommodated my rushed timeline (thank you!). Our envelopes were gorgeous and I had several guests text me pictures with comments about how amazing the calligraphy was.

My husband also had Michele help him with my wedding gift - a painting with a message on the back, which she wrote using a font similar to our invitations. Again, her work was flawless. Would highly recommend Michele and Meant To Be to anyone looking for beautiful calligraphy!

Michele was incredible for the calligraphy for our wedding! I met Michele when I took her calligraphy workshop and she is just fantastic. I had several customs calligraphy items for my wedding, including a globe for a guest book. Michele was always up for the challenge. She went so above and beyond- working with us to create digital lettering that was made into customs pieces and even doing foreign language calligraphy for our travel themed wedding. The work was so beautiful and fit our overall look perfectly. Amazing communication and product. Highly recommend!

Michele was highly recommended to us by our local printer, Old City Press & Co., as well as by previous clients. Her work elevates the design, look and feel of any product. When we distributed the invitations to my daughter’s bridal party, they were impressed immediately by the beautifully scripted calligraphy. She offers so many choices which will capture the personality of the client or the ambiance of the event, from the very formal to more casual. I’ve also seen a seating chart that she did for my friend’s wedding which was so beautiful, it was framed and is hanging in the living room of my friend’s condo – an exquisite reminder of a beautiful day! Not only does she provide a beautiful product, she provides expertise in etiquette and mailing and will check with you if there are any questions. She completed inner/outer envelopes for us within schedule, error-free, and on budget, even though we got the product to her later than planned. She responded to all inquiries immediately. We couldn’t have asked for better service or a more beautiful product!

I am thrilled that we were referred to Michele and got to work with her. The calligraphy was gorgeous and she even shared tips on addressing etiquette (which we were pretty confused about before talking to her). Our invitations created quite the buzz among friends and family with the calligraphy being called out specifically by many. Aside from the great work, Michele was also fantastic at accommodating our quick turnaround request and a few changes along the way. We won't hesitate to call on her for any future calligraphy needs or to recommend her to friends!

Michele at Meant to Be Calligraphy did an AMAZING job with the calligraphy for our wedding! The lettering on our invitations was beautiful, and she was professional, responsive, and totally attentive to every detail. We also used her to do the calligraphy for a mirror that listed our signature cocktails, and that turned out perfectly. She is super nice and easy to work with -- I'd recommend her to anyone!

I was thrilled to find that Michele at Meant to be Calligraphy, who is such a talented calligrapher, was located so close to my home. Michele responded quickly to my initial inquiry and throughout the process she was always responsive, helpful and a pleasure to do business with. I both dropped off and mailed stationary to her that I had purchased on WeddingPaperDivas.com. She did our table number cards, escort cards, and signage for the dessert table. When I picked up everything a few days before the wedding, I was blown away by the quality of her work and it exceeded my (high) expectations. Her work was a beautiful addition to the wedding day!

Working with Michele at Meant to Be was an absolute pleasure! She is so nice and responsive, and takes such pride and enthusiasm in producing beautiful calligraphy for your event needs. We used MTB to do the calligraphy for our wedding invitation envelopes. Additionally, Michele did the placecards for our rehearsal dinner, escort cards for our wedding, menu calligraphy for the wedding, table numbers for the wedding, and finally, she created a custom monogram for us that we digitized and had embroidered on our dinner napkins, and used on matchbooks etc. She has so many beautiful font styles to choose from that it was hard to pick just one, but we landed on Draper, which was elegant but also unique. She turned everything around in a timely manner, was responsive to emails, and I felt for the quality and service was 100% worth the cost, and a good value. I wish I had more projects coming up so I could enlist Michele's beautiful work!!

Based on a recommendation from our wedding planner, we ended up working with Meant to Be Calligraphy for all of our wedding day paper goods. Michele addressed all of our wedding invitations as well as prepared all of our place cards, day-of signage, etc., and wow, did it all look gorgeous! So many of our guests commented on her beautiful calligraphy. Michele is very talented, flexible and so friendly. I really enjoyed working with her and couldn't be happier with the work she did for us. Thank you!
