Hi Everyone - Spring is in the air and it's a beautiful time for a wedding! It's time to start planning! Your invitations are the prelude to your wedding, bridal shower or any special event. Let me make them the most special that they can be by adding custom, handwritten calligraphy! I have over 20 years of experience and many satisfied customers as references. I have just recieved the BOW Award (Best of Weddings) from the knot. and I am the Brides Choice and Couples Choice on Wedding Wire!!!! I am very proud of these awards and pride myself in being accommodating and helpful at one of the most stressful times in your life! If you have a vision/theme, not only for your invitations, but placecards, programs, wedding scrolls or other decorations - I can help you make your dream a reality And all of it will be Stress Free! My styles are readable and make a beautiful presentation (Please see samples and reviews on "the knot" Weddingwire and Thumbtack too) I am also able to match most ink colors. All I need from you is a list of your guests/addresses and your envelopes. You can drop these things off at my home - a partial list is fine to start with - and I will have your invitations ready for pickup in approximately 1-2 weeks (based on 75-100 invitations and work load). Changes and additions can be made by email. My prices are reasonable and I am always happy to work with a budget! Give me a call to discuss the details of your "Special Day"!!

Melanie was so fun to work with! Not only is Melanie's calligraphy beautiful, but the process was so easy, it felt like working with an old friend! She is professional and experienced and her work is beautiful. Pickup and drop off were easy, whenever it was convenient for me, such as before or after work. I really believe hand done calligraphy can transform even a modest invitation. It adds a warm, PERSONAL touch. If you are even THINKING of calligraphy, give Melanie a call. I could not recommend her more highly!

I was very very pleased with the calligraphy that Melanie did for me on my daughter's wedding place cards. She was so easy to contact and always got back to me in a timely fashion. She was so very careful to see things were done correctly and for this I am so thankful. She helped me with suggestions and at all times I felt comfortable with the results. I am so very thankful to have found her. I recommend her as a valuable resource for any calligraphy needs.

Melanie was a great find and we are so thankful to have found her at the right time with a huge crunch to get our invitations labeled and in the mail. Melanie was great to work with and was so friendly. She has a unique style of calligraphy that I really loved and added the touch of formality that we were looking for with our invitation.

She worked quickly over a few days to get my envelopes completed and was very easy to coordinate drop off and pick up times. She even used purple ink on my envelopes which matched the purple of my color palette perfectly. Her pricing was reasonable and we certainly felt like we got more than our money's worth for the final product.

We would recommend Melanie for your calligraphy services.

Melanie was a pleasure to work with and did a beautiful job! She addressed our wedding invitations and they were gorgeous. Melanie was very careful in choosing the perfect color to compliment our invitations. Her style is beautiful! Further, Melanie was a pleasure to work with. We were on a tight schedule and Melanie worked with us to have everything done on our timeline - she was actually able to get them done earlier than anticipated for us. After we picked up the envelopes I had a question regarding envelop stuffing and Melanie had an answer for me right away. She is very knowledgeable about all things related to invitation etiquette. Melanie was so nice and accommodating and did an absolutely beautiful job! I would 100% use her again and recommend her to anyone looking for a calligrapher.

We used Melanie to do calligraphy on our invitations for our June 2013 wedding. I was so impressed with her and would recommend her to any bride in the Boston area! Her calligraphy is beautiful. She is quick (she told us about a two-week turnaround, but it was faster!) and very responsive to emails. The end-product looked exactly like the samples she showed us. She was even willing to write extras for me when I added to the guest list with only a day notice! I hadn't expected it to be such an easy process but everything truly surpassed my expectations. I highly recommend Melanie-- you will love her!

I can not say enough positive things about Melanie Hill. I was impressed when she first replied to my email and even more once I spoke to her on the phone. My situation was not an easy one for I left my escort cards till the last minute. She was more than willing to work with me and accommodated my needs. She was very professional and quite friendly. I requested a special pen color and she worked her magic. She is easy to get a hold of through email and phone, she responds promptly unlike other calligraphy businesses I had contacted. From her first email response I knew I wanted to work with Melanie and I am so glad I did. She is fantastic!

If I could sum Melanie up in one word---AMAZING! Specifically her work but also how she handles herself/ her business. From the first email I sent her to find out a little more information to well after I picked up our wedding invitation envelopes the whole time she was always eager to help and extremely thoughtful. Even after she was done with all of them she suggested that I leave a couple invitations this way if I had any last minute ones she'd address them and send it out for me! You don't find people going that extra mile anymore like she does.

She was always available by phone, email, in person and was great at communicating with me throughout the process.

Even though she gave me warning to double/triple check the address/spelling of towns/zip codes which I did she still caught a couple errors I had. She emailed me right away letting me know and that it was no big deal. I trusted her 100%. Her professional opinion helped me since I had no idea the proper way on addressing the envelopes.

We had her use navy ink which matches our invitations exactly. Even though I don't know much about addressing envelopes, initially was thinking of a way to address them myself like maybe using a printer... I'm SO happy I didn't. They look a thousand times nicer than any printer. Her writing adds a personal touch.

I found Melanie from maybe the same way you are finding her- through her reviews which you see are nothing but great feedback. I've been very lucky to have found Melanie and you will be too if you hire her.
