I love emails like this!

These are my favorite types of emails:

Dear Britta,

I cannot express how grateful I am that I found your company. I had told family and friends that I had found Not From A Box, an online site that sold invitations. Several people kept trying to convince me that this was not the way to go. However, once I ordered the invitation sample (which came in two days!) I knew the invitations were exactly what I wanted and had decided that I was going to use Not From A Box despite their comments.

And I definitely made the correct decision! I have nothing but the best to say about your company. Every step of the process from picking out my invitations, to ordering them, to adapting the proofs, and even the dramatic moment where I needed emergency envelopes ASAP, went smoothly. You and your staff were helpful and supportive of all of the different aspects of my planning and neurotic attention to detail.
I have gotten so many compliments on my invitations for their simple, yet classy and sophisticated look. The main reason I received those compliments is because of the quality of the invitations and devotion that your staff puts into each and every order. I cannot say enough about how lucky I was to stumble across your web-site and how pleased I am with every aspect of my order from the invitations, menus, and favor stickers. Thank you so much and I will highly recommend you to many friends and relatives!


Real Wedding: Kristen & Gordon, November 2009

January 20, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed working with the bride and her family on this classic, elegant wedding. The bride and groom did a spectacular job incorporating many personal touches in their special day. The tables were named after historic St. Petersburg landmarks, such as the St. Petersburg Yacht Club and Al Lang Field, corresponding vintage postcard images were used at each table and on the personalized escort cards. The favors included glass jars of honey and delicious homemade pear jelly, both made by members of the family.

The vendors that contributed their time and talents to this event include:
Venue: The Renaissance Vinoy Resort, Sunset Ballroom
Event Planner: Sandy Rule Events
Photography: Corey Conroy Photography
Florals: Redman Steele
Invitations and Stationery: yours truly, Not From a Box
