Kind words from the brides
If I could give 10 stars, I would! Working with Kara Anne to create the stationery suite for my summer wedding in Ravello, Italy, was an absolute dream. My husband and I wanted to build up guests' anticipation with a breathtaking first impression - an invitation that captured the enchanted, otherworldly essence of Ravello while remaining grounded in the purity of our love. Kara Anne more than delivered, taking our mood boards and translating our ideas into something more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Moreover, she went above and beyond to make the process of designing our stationery truly special - from sweet gestures like surprising us with a lovely Simone LeBlanc wedding gift, to texting images of her work-in-progress and incorporating little personal details into the artwork that made the stationery personally meaningful and uniquely ours. I work in the creative industries and engage with artists and designers on a regular basis, and Kara Anne is amongst the most talented, thoughtful, and kindest people I've had the joy of working with. Creating our stationery with Kara Anne and gaining a new friend and collaborator in the process was one of the top highlights of our wedding journey. I cannot recommend her enough!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your incredible work, and also your lovely personality! I don't know how to express how grateful I am for your artistry and your work ethic and your kind nature. You have gone above and beyond what I expected, every step of the way. I procrastinated in choosing a calligrapher because I was worried about ending up disappointed... as soon as I came across your work on Instagram I had a feeling that I had made a good decision passing up all of the other previous options! You are just phenomenal. Thank you for being so patient and helpful and organized even when I had such a close deadline.

I'm so happy we found Kara Anne. She was absolutely amazing to work with. She did a custom watercolor of our venue for our save-the-date and then did a beautiful invitation suite for us (invitation, welcome party invitation, details card, and reply card). She is extremely gifted. She did gorgeous calligraphy on everything. We received so many remarks on how beautiful it all was. We had the chance to buy the rights to some of her work which we could use to make stone coasters, Gobo lights and photo strips for our wedding which was such a nice touch. Having works of art for our invitation materials really set the stage for our wedding weekend. She did beautiful place cards for us for two of our wedding events as well as beautiful signs (aisle, drink, gift, hashtag signs). My husband and I went back and forth a lot with what colors we wanted and what overall feel we wanted for our wedding and she navigated through all of it with us so well (and never lost her patience with me when I went back and forth with her on ideas). I wish I could do the whole planning process over again just to work with her! You will not be disappointed!

Kara Anne Paper was an absolute DREAM to work with!! I work in the Fine Art field and wanted my wedding invitations to be formal and traditional with a creative flair. Boy did Kara deliver!! She is highly creative, and always sent me at least 5 proofs for every project! Her attention to detail and paper knowledge helped me (and my wedding planning partner mom!) make informed decisions about paper weight, print type, etc! Kara designed my: Save the Date, Logo (several versions that we used throughout my wedding!), 5-part wedding invitation suite where she did the calligraphy for both the outer & inner envelope, church programs, church signage, welcome signage for our reception, signage for our signature drinks, napkins for cocktail hour and guest bathrooms, match boxes, menu cards, escort cards, and stationary (for our thank you notes!). Kara created detailed timelines for all of our projects and made sure we were on track every step of the way! My mom & I were originally apprehensive working with someone from out of town, and we could not have asked for a better experience! Every detail of our wedding was executed to perfection & we were so pleased with all our luxury paper!!

I cannot say enough amazing things about Kara Anne Paper. Not only is Kara the sweetest person to work with, but she is an extremely amazing professional who brought my exact wedding vision to life plus more. I didn't know it before we started, but Kara's work was going to be one of the most important and beautiful parts of my wedding. I am forever thankful for her!! I am a very type A person who loves details, but I'm not creative enough to figure out exactly what those details are on my own. Well, with this little block and my lack of words for being able to explain what I was wanting, Kara somehow figured it all out and made my wedding vision come to life. Her work is what made my wedding so perfect- from the invitations and monogram, to the menus and signs, all the way to the champagne glasses, place cards and ceremony programs, all of the customization and gorgeous details Kara created impacted our wedding in such a beautiful way. It made our most special day more than what we could have ever dreamed of and impressed our wedding guests beyond belief. Through all the midnight emails and all my crazy ideas and questions, she was super patient with me, always responsive, and always had the sweetest attitude to help me figure out exactly what I was looking for. This was (unexpectedly, but surely) by far the most fun part of our wedding planning process and I will forever miss receiving my Kara Anne Paper packages in the mail!! Everything she does is absolutely beautiful and with whatever you choose to do, she will make sure it's nothing short of perfect. I can't wait to see what other amazing things she will create for us in the future- Kara is the best of the best. :)

What a wonderful experience it was to work with Kara Anne! She is very professional and talented at what she does! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking into paper goods for any occasion. I worked with her over the course of several months to create the perfect wedding suite for my big day. Her ability to connect with her clients and develop a sense of design that matches each one precisely is what makes her work unique. I had the pleasure of creating many goodies with her for my wedding: full stack wedding invitation suite, ceremony programs, menus, outdoor flag, seating chart for guests, and a special monogram logo placed on napkins, stickers, tags, our cake, a pillow, and custom champaign flutes. Her artwork and design is one of a kind! After the wedding, I had many guests asking about the artist of my paper goods. If you are looking for one of kind work that will leave your guests in awe, go with Kara Anne—it was honestly my favorite part of wedding planning!
-Jenni / Dripping Springs, Texas
Kara Anne is by far the best in the business. A million thank yous are not enough for all she did for us. Her vision, ideas, talent and work ethic are amazing and if I had to use one word it would be perfection. Kara Anne deserves success due to her driven desire to make everyone happy and make sure you are 100% satisfied. I will be forever grateful and thankful that we were led to her by an unexpected turn of events that was a blessing bestowed to us. From the invitations to the hangers, koozies, flag, stickers and programs and much more all were delivered on time and beautiful. Will definitely use Kara Anne for future needs.

Kara was amazing to work with and so creative! Hands down the most amazing invitations I've ever seen! -Kristen, / Sienna, Italy
Kara Anne is so amazing!! From her beautiful designs to her elegant calligraphy, she truly created the invitation suite of my dreams! She also designed a custom logo for our wedding that we were able to use on cups, koozies, napkins, guest book, programs, cake, etc. It truly set our wedding apart from others and made it very personalized. Kara is so wonderful to work with. She has top quality of service, responds to email/phone calls quickly, and goes above and beyond to meet needs. I fully trusted her decisions and opinions when it came to design. I looked for months trying to find someone and finally found Kara who matched my style perfectly. She made the process so easy and fun!!
-Brittney / Nashville, Tennessee
Kara Anne was absolutely amazing to work with! I loved the idea of having someone customize my invitation suite and create the designs from start to finish. Our wedding monogram she designed was absolutely beautiful. Her calligraphy is the best I have ever seen and the foil stamping made everything stand out beautifully. She created the vision I was looking for and made it such an easy process. I loved that I got to work first hand with a designer instead of choosing invitations from a book, it makes it so much more unique without costing more. I highly recommend her, she was my favorite and easiest vendor!
-Tina / The Woodlands, Texas
I loved my paper goods that Kara Anne designed for my wedding. I have received so many compliments on how they were the most beautiful invitations that my guests have ever received! It really set the tone for my wedding. She designed my save the dates, wedding invitation suite, programs, menus, place cards, wreath banner, cocktail napkins, selected hand dyed silk ribbon to compliment and did all the calligraphy on the envelopes. She is extremely organized and detail oriented. She met all of my deadlines and kept me informed on her status on each of my projects. I was never worried or concerned that she would be able to handle my wedding list (400 guests). I live in California and we easily communicated over email. She promptly responded to all of my emails and questions. It was really helpful when she mailed a sample of her work to me. I was able to see the different colors, printing methods and paper qualities and paper weights. She worked with me on my budget and gave me several options to choose from. I can go on and on about how talented Kara Anne is and I can’t thank her enough for making my wedding so special and memorable!!!!
-Courtney / Fresno, California
Kara Anne is truly exceptional in every way! She was incredibly wonderful to work with, her attention to detail was extraordinary, and her vision in coordinating all of the creative details made all the difference between just a wedding and what became our DREAM wedding! What makes Kara Anne unique is her ability to create a vision that is perfect for each individual bride. From the moment our guests received our save the dates, until long after the wedding, they raved about her beautiful work. I truly cannot say enough about her - highly recommended!
-Caroline / Birmingham, Alabama
Where to start with Kara Anne Paper?! Everything that was sent to me was gorgeous from the start. I loved our invitations and they fit exactly what I had been describing to Kara Anne. The most pleasant surprise, though, were our wedding programs. They were gorgeous and far exceeded expectation. We received so many compliments regarding our paper needs for the wedding. Kara Anne was very easy to talk to and listened! She was very flexible and so sweet.
-Taryn / Houston, Texas
Kara Anne Paper created absolutely gorgeous bar and food menus, name cards, and table numbers for our 2/11/17 wedding in New Orleans. She is so incredibly talented and we were blown away by how beautiful her work is! I cannot wait to use her again!
-Danielle / New Orleans, Louisiana
Kara was so wonderful to work with! She was so responsive...even with all of my changes! I also felt like she listened to what I wanted and went above and beyond to make sure I loved everything! I would recommend her to anyone who wants a truly custom experience on their invitations and paper goods.
-Cori / Rosemary Beach, Florida
Kara is responsive, creative, easy to work with and creates truly beautiful pieces. My invitations were everything I wanted and more. Highly recommend Kara!
-Christine / St. Louis, Missouri
Kara Anne does beautiful and unique work. She shares great ideas and can turn your wedding visions into a beautiful masterpiece. I am so in love with our entire wedding suite and Kara's work is just gorgeous. She has great visions and her style is so tasteful.
-Kristyn / Jonestown, Texas
Kara Anne was wonderful to work with and was very responsive to emails. She designed my wedding logo, invitation suite, koozies, program sign and bar sign; and everything turned out exactly how I wanted it to. All of her work is amazing, you will not be disappointed. I can't say enough great things or recommend her enough. If you are looking for custom/unique design for your wedding Kara Anne Paper is it!
-Brittney / Wilsonville, Alabama
Kara is absolutely wonderful! She is so talented and also a pleasure to work with. She really understood our vision and brought it to life! Beyond our expectations!
-Katie / Birmingham, Alabama
Kara was absolutely a pleasure to work with. She really made the stressful nature of wedding planning a fun, light, and easy experience. She really takes the time to make each bride's design personal and unique. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! She did an amazing job!
-Gabby / Montgomery, Alabama
Cannot express how choosing Kara to do my paper for my wedding was the best decision of my wedding process. Kara was amazing to work with. She was extremely responsive to all of my emails and request. Not only was she very organized and great to do business with, but her work was amazing!! I can't tell you how many people complemented the save the dates and invitation suite. She is outstanding!! I couldn't recommend her more.
-Ginger / Atlanta, Georgia
Kara is an incredibly talented artist that created one of a kind, custom save the dates and invitations for our wedding. The final products exceeded our expectations and can not compare to anything available on popular invitation websites. She took the time to learn about us as a couple and our wedding style and was able to translate that into the perfect paper suite for us. The design process was simple, done entirely via email, and was completed in a timely manner. Our guests went wild over our invitations, and we are still hearing how much people love them!
-Angela / Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I initially reached out to Kara after seeing her work featured on a stationary blog with hopes that we'd be able to work together on my wedding invitations as I had my heart stuck on letterpress but was working with a tight budget. Kara responded with a quote promptly and was very personable through the process. She was very understanding of my budget (throughout my wedding planning processes I encountered many vendors that had their noses in the air when I mentioned what I could and could not spend) Kara was like a breath of fresh air! She was always very responsive, our design was exactly in line with what we discussed and all of the items in our order were delivered earlier than anticipated! I can't sing her praises enough -- I hope I have the opportunity to have her design more invites for my family in the future!
-Cara / Templeton, California
Kara did amazing work!!! I still have people talking about how beautiful my invitations were! She did exactly what I wanted and so friendly!
-Blair / Rosemary Beach, Florida
Kara was excellent to work with and went above and beyond to ensure that our invitation suite and "day of" items were exactly what we wanted. She helped us set the tone for our big day and I am still receiving compliments on how beautiful our "Save the Date" and Invitation Suite was...someone even wanted to frame them, they thought they were so beautiful. :) Kara was accommodating in laying out time frames for production and delivery and helped my husband and myself understand the entire design process. I would recommend her to anyone who wants breathe taking paper products and "day of" items for their wedding or any major life event. We could not have been more pleased with her customer service and work.
-Whitney / Montgomery, Alabama
Kara Anne is so sweet and very talented. She was very easy to work with, even when we wanted to change ideas. She designed the save the dates, wedding invitation suite, cups, koozies, napkins, gifts to go inside the "out-of-town" guests favor boxes, and bar signage for the reception. She did IT ALL! It was great to be able to go to one person for most of the things that we needed! She is a perfectionist and will re-do something if it isn't to her liking! Highly recommend!
-Coleman / Auburn, Alabama
My wedding planner referred me to a friend of hers that designed wedding invites, logos, etc. Little did I know that it was the same person that I had already discovered on Instagram and had been "stalking" her work. I cannot say enough good things about Kara and her business. Kara is incredibly talented and so easy to work with! She worked with us to keep things on time and offered several ideas of ways to cut costs a bit to help keep our budget on track. The end results were nothing short of amazing, and we are so grateful for all the time and effort she put into making every little detail so special. Kara designed our save the dates, thank you notes, invitation suite, programs and a few different logos to be used for cups, napkins, etc. She also designed the most precious bride and groom cards that my husband and I used to write a sweet little something to each other the day of our wedding. We had so many compliments on how beautiful our paper products were and we owe it all to Kara! She is truly amazing at what she does.
-Laura / Pike Road, Alabama
Your work is just beautiful and we have been more than thrilled with everything you have done to make Payton and Jim’s special day even more wonderful! The compliments we receive everyday about all her invitations are wonderful to hear and we will gladly send all referrals your way!
