Paper Passionista was accommodating and extremely helpful in the creation of our wedding invitations. We were provided with invaluable suggestions, options and were kept informed throughout the creation and production process. The quality of service and final product we received were outstanding and we are grateful for the memorable experience Paper Passionista created for us in our wedding planning process.
Paper Passionista was refered to me by a friend who is a wedding photographer. I really have a busy schedule and do not have much time to sit down and look for hours for the perfect invitation. Gayle was such a blessing to me. We had our initial consultation via skype where she quickly showed me exaclty what I wanted to see, and it became the perfect invitation. I cannot say enough great things about my experiance with paper passionista.
I could go on and on about each category I've given Gayle a 5 star rating. Moreover, if there were a 6 star option I'd have no choice - Gayle deserves at least that!
From the beginning she were so in tune with what we wanted. My groom-to-be and I weren't always seeing eye-to-eye on how we envisioned our invites to look, and she found a way to make us both happy. We ended up with the perfect invite suite with elements that we both were looking for. We can't get over how much we're obsessed with our invites!
We got everything we could've ever dreamed of - and to top it off - at a fabulous price. We would've never thought we could've gotten the quality we ended up with at our price max but Gayle made it happen.
She was super knowledgable when it came to setting the invite language and so patient going back and forth with me during the 3 edit rounds. She's got a knack for making a tough process easy and enjoyable. By far the best vendor I've worked with to-date in planning my wedding.
I wouldn't recommend anyone else!
If you are considering an invitation professional, I can highly recommend the Paper Passionista. Gayle was so supportive and incredibly helpful in selecting and arranging our beautiful wedding invitations. I was – truth be-told – nervous to meet a paper professional. I was worried we’d feel pressured into seven piece invitations with all sorts of extras. Instead, Gayle was a delight, melded my spouse’s tastes and my own beautifully, brought us in under our desired budget, and did all of that with a contagious, positive energy. It was such a great experience! Gayle is not only a wonderful person but also a talented and invaluable wedding professional. We’re forever grateful for her role in our wedding.
I LOVE GAYLE! Not only was she very professional and responsive, but she had a real knowledge of the industry and a wide variety of options for everything from save the dates to menus. She actually tracked down an invite I'd sent her a google image of that I'd fallen in love with like it was nothing. She even fit in a couple last second orders like they were nothin' (thanks Gayle!). Honestly couldn't recommend her high enough!
We loved working with Paper Passionista. Every detail, even the ones we did not think of, were addressed quickly and with care. The quality of the invitations was excellent, sturdy soft silky paper, just lovely.
She recommended a calligrapher and worked directly with the calligrapher so that we did not have to deal with the invitations until they already had the addresses on them. Once ready, our invitiations with the addresses were hand deilvered...we couldn't have imagined a better situation.
Gayle was AMAZING to work with. I was completely stressed with invitations, I went to all of the retail stores and was so overwhelmed with understanding pricing and just finding someone that I loved. Gayle took away all of the stressed and assured me throughout the process that the choices that we made were correct. She knows her stuff and is very understanding. I just received all of my invites and I could not be more excited they are the most amazing invites I have ever seen.
Gayle was a pleasure to work with. She was quite patient with my fiance and I as we chose our invitations and made helpful suggestions when we started to stall out or ran into trouble agreeing :) It was so great that she traveled to meet us close to home and lugged several large books of sample invitations for us to look through. The invitations were ordered and delivered promptly, and the entire process was very painless.
Gayle was very helpful and professional. Would definitely recommend her.
We were extremely pleased with the service we received from Gayle at Paper Passionista! Our invitations were very cool and everyone commented on how unique they were! Gayle went above and beyond in trying to please us and handled a problem ( that I created) and solved it in a very timely fashion. Couldnt be more happy! We'd work with Paper Passionista again for sure!

Gayle is wonderful to work with. She realizes that brides are so busy so she comes to you. She will meet you at home, for coffee, basically anywhere.
Before you meet she does a phone consultation to get an idea of your style. This helps her decide what samples to bring. She was so well prepared and I found my invitations I think within 30 minutes.
It only took a couple days to get the proof and then a couple more weeks to actually get the invitations. She is so knowledgable in her field and if you are lucky, you will get to meet her husband Jim as well who is also helpful.
What impressed me about Paper Passionista is her large selection of custom invitations. No matter what your wedding style (Modern, Classic, different color palettes) your sure to find one that fits your theme. I liked how she meets you at a location of your choosing, this really helped with my crazy busy schedule. It was a great experience being able to work with Gayle, she really cares about her brides. Congratulations on becoming an Association of Bridal Consultants designated Master Wedding Vendor!
I gave Gayle's name to a couple for whom I was designing wedding flowers -- they loved working with Gayle. And when I saw the invitations I was duly impressed. Gorgeous. Their feedback was 100% positive. I will gladly refer future brides to Paper Passionista!
