I would just like to inform you that you are AMAZING. I am getting an overload of calls with raving reviews of our wedding invitation. My fiancé Earl was even floored, and said the money invested in you was the best he's spent. People have not stopped talking about my wedding invitations since we mailed them out. And everybody's excited about what they'll see the day of, since you are designing all of the stationery for the wedding day. Thank you Zeb!

Zeb is a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend her services!! All of my guests loved my invitations; most said that they were the most beautiful invitations they had ever seen! Not only did she do a remarkable job with my invites, but she also designed the perfect escort cards that helped to tie the invitation design into my actual wedding day. I can't thank Zeb enough!

Zeb is amazing and priceless! She helped us get the most beautiful ad meaningful invitations that fit our motif and personalities perfectly. She had to coordinate with one of our very difficult vendors and did so with professionalism and class. The guests raved about our invitations and they are still a highlight of our event! She is so responsive and puts you first no matter how busy. Use her!

Praez Occasions provided the most STUNNING and high-quality invitations I have ever seen. The paper stock is out of this world, and the invitations are completely custom works of art. Each and every single one of my guests commented on how beautiful the invitation was and how it set the tone for my wedding. One of my guests even went to the trouble of having my invitation professionally framed as a present for us because she said she'd "never seen anything like it!" Working with Zeb to create my invitation was a pleasure--she was very professional throughout the process but managed to bring her wonderful personality through as well. She picked up on my vision of an elegant, romantic, turn of the century event and communicated it perfectly through her design. Simply put, Praez Occasions' work is on another level!

I don't know where to start. Praez Occasions is the best of the best. When I recieved my wedding invitations, I cried so hard. It was very emotional for us. They are the most beatiful invitations I have ever seen. My dream fulfilled. My guests are calling from all over the country to say how much they love our wedding invitations. My sister took hers to work for all to see. I've been to many parties in L.A, that's where I'm from and received many invitations from friends and family members, but our invitations from Praez Occassions beats them all. They are so fabulous. Classy, high quality, excellent price and Zeb and Rae have the best customer service ever. As one of our guest said, Our invitations are "off the hook". People are talking more about our wedding invitations, than the wedding itself. I love , love ,love Praez Occassions. Love my Invitations. Priceless. So I rate them a big fat (10).

Amazing service, outstanding workmanship and quality, not to mention lovely people to work with. First of all, one can never compare the invitations you buy online or in a catalog to custom made for YOU. Our invitations, as well as save-the-dates are beautiful--they have set the stage for our wedding. Zeb was always accomodating to our requests and last minute changes. We couldn't be happier. The icing on the cake was that they exceeded all our wishes within our budget. I can't wait to have another event so we can work together again!

I found Praez Occasions while traveling on a nurse assignment after I saw my mediocre invitations from my vendor back home in NC. Rae and her team got right to work on developing my vision and bringing it to life! She also designed my monogram which carried throughout my wedding. I was so pleased with the quality and design that I also purchased my programs, escort cards and table names from here; all custom designed for me! I got so many compliments on my invitations from guests because they were so different! I would definitely recommend them to any bride local or not because I was 100% pleased!!!! Love ya Rae!!!!
