Christa is amazing to work with! My fiancee and I had (slightly) neglected the choosing of invitations until the last minute. We were all set to order some on a website, but found the process overwhelming and a little hard to navigate. Luckily, we remembered we met Christa at a bridal show last year and were able to set up a consultation. Once we met with her we knew it was going to be a perfect fit!The final invitations are beautifully letterpressed and perfectly designed. The colors and texture of the paper play off each other so well. Her expertise helped us make well-informed decisions and she was great to work with – very responsive and attentive to our questions and edits. The proofs provided by Christa are hugely helpful… Everything is laid out so you truly get a sense of how they will look together. When she delivered the final product, I knew exactly what it would look like! And they were all done in time (despite our delayed start time)!

Christa is an incredibly talented artist and designer. Her work shows a level of detail that is not found on website invitations. She is compassionate about her clients and it shows. We could not have asked for a better vendor to collaborate with on the making of our save the dates and invitations. I would recommend Christa to anyone looking for letterpress or customized digital work.

A quick note to say thank you, as genuinely as I possibly can ,and to tell those of you looking for invitations to hire Christa. I really enjoyed working with her on the invitations. I had a look and feel in mind, and Christa made that happen due to her willingness to take every piece of feedback and incorporate it into the design, without ever making me feel overwhelmed or like a nag. When I wanted to get a custom embosser to do the return address, she coordinated it for us and got everything put together for us. Everything came out perfectly; we had a million complements on our invitations, seating chart, and table numbers.

I was extremely pleased with all of my wedding stationary provided by Christa Alexandra Designs. I worked with Christa long distance (her in Vermont, me in NY) and did all of our communication through email and over the phone, and everything came out PERFECT. Christa asked me tons of questions about my style and what I was looking for and came up with gorgeous designs for my Save-the-Dates, invitations, table number cards and ceremony cards, and would send them to me through e-mail. I would tell her what I liked and what I wanted changed and we worked together throughout the whole process. It felt really amazing to see how she took my ideas and created something so beautiful (which I never could have done on my own or with anyone else). I know I could not have gotten the same results if I had done what I was originally planning, which was just to find ones I liked online from a cheap web site and order them. Christa worked with me to keep the cost as low as possible, and even went to great efforts sending me tutorials so that I could DIY a few things to save. I highly recommend using her!

I was lucky enough to work with Christa to design my beautiful wedding invitation suite as well as some day of materials and thank you notes. Christa is absolutely wonderful to work with and she is very talented. From the beginning, I knew I had made the right choice in deciding to work with her! I had looked at local shops as well as some of the online sites for my wedding invitations and I had a really hard time finding something that pulled all my ideas together and to blend all my wedding elements together to convey what my wedding was in my invitation. After just a short phone conversation with Christa, I had a number of mock-ups for invitations. She was very patient as I requested small changes and blending of her different mock-ups, until we came to the perfect one. She even created some fun wording for our info card and our RSVP card – not to mention the details (band and envelope liner) that she suggested really helped to bring everything together for me. I also had her design our favor cards, menus, and thank you notes. I got so many comments on Christa’s work – even from my calligrapher who said “it was the most beautiful invitation suite” she had seen! As a note, custom invitations are more expensive than if you were to use a big company but in my opinion you definitely get a deal by working with Christa – a beautiful product you will cherish long after your wedding is over! Thank you Christa for making the most beautiful wedding invitation suite and other wedding materials!

Christa Alexandra was one of the best decisions that I made regarding my wedding. She was so professional and timely and worked with me on my budget. She also produced the most amazing, customized invitations that I could dream of! I want to keep using her for everything! I would 100% recommend doing business with her. Simply amazing (and it doesn’t hurt that I still get comments on the beauty of her work).

Christa’s aesthetic matched mine perfectly and she helped me hone in on ideas for our invitation suite as soon as we started working together. Together, we came up with the perfect rustic but elegant invitations, and many of our guests commented on how beautiful they were. Additionally, Christa created our day-of materials to tie in with our invitations, and she was game for anything. I’m a teacher and wanted to incorporate my student’s interpretation of Pete and I getting married, so Christa found a way to use that image for our welcome box tags. We also had our friend make cookies for favors, and Christa designed adorable stickers to seal the cookie bags- again, she will do anything and everything! From our invitations to all of our day-of materials, Christa did an amazing job at creating gorgeous yet highly personalized materials. Most importantly, she is incredibly sweet and dealt with my indecision with grace and professionalism. I changed my mind on her so many times (often, very last minute), and she was always understanding and calming. Thank you Christa!

We were having the hardest time finding our perfect wedding paper. It ended up being the most difficult part of the planning process for us. I looked through books and books of invitations and met with different invitation designers in NYC. No one could help me find something that seemed to fit the wedding weekend we were planning. Then, my awesome wedding planner Becca Newton, introduced me to Christa. I looked at her website and chatted with her on the phone and I knew she was the right person. I’m not creative at all so it was hard for me to even articulate exactly what I wanted. Somehow Christa knew all the right questions to ask and very quickly after that conversation she presented me with these stunning invitations. They are the perfect blend of romantic, rustic, refined, and sweet that we wanted. Also I really wanted to put everything in a little folder so that it would be easy for the guests to have everything in one place since it is a destination wedding. Christa even managed to make that look amazing! Working with Christa has really been a dream, she is so easy to communicate with and is eager to make the product exactly what you want. It’s so great to work with people who obviously love what they do. Thank you!

When I first met with Christa about our wedding invitations, I had a very simple design in mind. I knew I wanted letterpress invitations, but that was as far as my imagination could take me. She offered to design something a little more fun and I am so glad I took her up on her offer. We absolutely love our invitations! They are so beautiful and unique and perfectly us. The letterpress work was true artistry as well – each invitation is its own, beautiful work of art. We receive compliments on our invitations everyday! We just loved working with Christa and appreciate her work more than words can say! She was always professional and worked with me on every little detail. We were so impressed and happy with our invitations that we asked Christa to design our programs and a special poster for our guests to sign – both turned out beautifully! We definitely recommend Christa to everyone and are so thankful we found her for our wedding!

I really want to thank you for your patience and professionalism. My ideas have really been scattered throughout this whole wedding planning process and you have really helped me tie them all together- not only with the invites but with the general theme and other planning as well. Working with you was was just what I needed to get on the right track. I really appreciate your flexibility, willingness, and ability to work with your clients. We absolutely loved the invitations! Everything looks so perfect and fits together wonderfully. I love, love the belly band – you were so right in that it ties it all together. Thank you SO much again. It was so cool to see them in real life. My parents really loved how they went with the theme and the feeling of our wedding.

Christa is absolutely phenomenal at what she does! She is extremely personable and great to work with. She listened to what we had for ideas and was able to put it all together and create a memorable invitation suite for us. All of our family and friends can’t stop raving about them. We will definitely be recommending her to everyone that needs a graphic designer. We are so happy we went with the custom made invitations, as they are unique, fun, vibrant and totally us (well, maybe more me, as my favorite colors are pink & green!) but luckily Matt loved them too!!

Christa, the owner of Christa Alexandra Designs, is a dear friend from college, so I knew when I got engaged who I would turn to for my “paper” needs. Christa has a beautiful inventory of paper goods to choose from already, or she offers custom design. What is so great about Christa is that she has such a passion for what she does that she puts her clients’ needs and interests first. Throughout the process she confirmed with me several times on my happiness of the product. She was great about communication and following up immediately with any changes/additions. In the end, everything came out beautifully! I was beyond anxious to receive the invitation suite, programs and menus. Christa far exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend using Christa Alexandra Designs!
