I am HAPPY to give a glowing reference for Lisa Lovitt!  She did an amazing job with my wedding invitations.  They were absolutely perfect.  I sent out about half of my long distance invites already and have actually gotten phone calls back from a number of people who have raved about the calligraphy.  She is extremely talented and her costs are far below what I found elsewhere.  You will not be disappointed.  I am very picky and do not have one complaint.  I sent my invitations (more than 100 of them) to her in Northern California from Corona Del Mar (Orange County) and had them back in a week and a half.  She was also delightful to work with. 
I hope this helps!

We hired Lisa to address our wedding invitations and inner envelopes, and her work was so good that we hired her to do our reception place cards and table name cards.  We received numerous compliments from our guests on the style and artistry of the cards.  Everything came out great and we could not have been happier about the results.  She had a user friendly website which showed all of the different styles available.   The 120 invitations that she did for us were consistent in style and form.  She offered a very good price for her work and she was very accommodating to our schedule.  She was always on time to our scheduled meetings and was extremely reliable which was very important to us.

Lisa is incredible! Not only is she talented and did an AMAZING job with our invitations and place cards, she was also able to do custom requested like our seating chart and signature cocktail signs. Additionally, she was punctual and kept on schedule. I feel extremely fortunate that I found her on Craigslist. One of my fondest memories was receiving phone calls and emails from guests complementing the calligraphy on the envelopes. I would highly recommend Lisa and in fact I have recommended her to friends who have subsequently employed her services and raved about her work.

Lisa was amazing!  She was very prompt and was even great about adding additional invites or making changes all along the way!   I had 165 wedding invitations and she did a beautiful job on all of them.  It only took her about a week to do them and she did them for half the cost of my stationary store.  She was very easy to work with and even came to meet my fiance to pick up  the envelopes and drop off the finished product. 
You will need to give her extra envelopes in case of mistakes.  However this is very typical.  I have never heard of a calligrapher not asking for envelopes.  Usually they ask for about 15% extra.  We also left our extra envelopes with her so she can add any last minute guests or make changes!  There were no unexpected charges but we did give her a tip since she did such a wonderful job and was so great to work with.
Good luck with your wedding! 
Best Wishes,

First I have to say that I understand your apprehension on your choice. We found her on an add in craiglists and my partner and I was scared because we wanted everything perfect.
With Lisa I felt like I had hit the jackpot. Her work is wonderful. The work that we had done was she did the writing on the envelopes to address people. She also did name placement cards. We had a theme of cities we have been to so each persons place card had a name and then they had city that went to a country.
Anways she was timely and when she said she was going to be done she was and was more than willing to meet me any place to exchange the sale.
I have a 100 percent confidence that you will like her work as did we.
Congrats on your event

Lisa responded quickly to my inquiry and turned around my wedding invitation order in two days. She also dropped them off where I lived to make sure I got them on the day promised. Her handwriting is beautiful! My guests started to receive the invites today and I already had two guests contact me saying how beautiful the calligraphy is. Thanks Lisa!!

Lisa took excellent care of my wedding invites!
There were a ton of styles to choose from, she 
was so fast, very reasonable and reassuring.
I'm a Lisa devotee!
Thanks again Lisa!!
I look forward to working with you again in the future!

Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with.  Her prices were fair, and she was kind and accommodating with a special order for my wedding envelopes, offering suggestions coming from her own expertise, and helped me make a decision on how to best choose between all of her beautiful styles.  Her turnaround time exceeded my expectations, and when they arrived in the mail, I was in public and gasped out loud how beautiful they were.  She followed up that day to make sure she had no mistakes, and sure enough, she had none - they were perfect.  I even had to resend her more envelopes when I realized I had made mistakes and she was more than willing to help redo some of them.  I will recommend her to anyone and everyone who needs calligraphy and I give her my highest respect for a job extremely well done.

Our guests were completely blown away by the calligraphy on the envelopes, they said they had never seen something so pretty. One of our guests thought they were getting an invite to the royal wedding. Thank you for doing a great job on them!

Hi Everybody! My wedding is October 15, 2011 which means I have a million and one things on my plate. My good friend offered to find me a calligrapher. She found Lisa and sent me her website. I looked at her work and called her immediately. I felt a little concerned doing everything by phone and email but Lisa was INCREDIBLY nice and reliable. She was completely accommodating to all my needs. Basically I needed 100 envelopes addressed in a matter of 3 days. She had everything done right on time and she shipped them overnight directly to my home. Beside her kindness, flexibility and reliability, her work says it all. Her calligraphy is the most beautiful I have ever seen in my life. My wedding envelopes looked so amazing. I sent them out just 2 days ago and I have already gotten 5 or more calls from people invited to the wedding telling me how amazing the calligraphy looked. I can't say enough positive things about Lisa's Lovely Calligraphy. All I know is that I was a beyond happy customer. Thank you SO much Lisa!!!
