Stacey & Satoshi
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Belinda for our wedding in October 2023. She is an incredible artist and so incredibly amazing at her art and her communication. We initially reached out for a quote for our wedding estimate of 55 guests in March 2023. She came back very quickly with a quote and description of a wedding suite that included invitations, envelopes, program fans, and thank you cards.
We weren’t quite sure what we wanted, so after some requests for re-quotes with edits to the list, we decided on just invitations and program fans. She was very understanding of our edit requests (we were trying to stay at a certain budget line) and always responded very quickly. As the months progressed, we actually decided to add more to our wedding suite needs and change the guest estimate, which she graciously agreed to, always giving us the updated pricing. In the end, we got our invitations, program fans, double-sided escort cards, and cake flavor cards done by her! She was always very understanding of all edits to our order and very upfront with pricing and answering any questions we had on how it would all work.
In terms of the actual artwork - man oh man, we were blown away!! Her art style perfectly suited our wedding, which was held at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We had ideas of what we wanted to convey about everything, but she was the mastermind of the rest of it. She really brought our vague ideas and words to life in the most beautiful way possible. We especially loved our invitations which showcased a gorgeous watercolor tiger, bringing a snippet of what was to come for our guests (our reception was held where the tigers were). We did not have any specific “wedding colors,” rather we let the venue and florist guide the color scheme. We were able to take the color scheme our florist presented to us and give it to Belinda as well, so she was able to incorporate those colors into the wedding suite! It made everything so cohesive and stunning.
Belinda was such a gem to work with. Everything was amazing - our friends and families especially loved the invitations and fans, which had the two very special works of art (tiger on the invitation, and dog and cheetah on the fans). Working with Belinda was such an easy process - since we were doing all the wedding planning ourselves, she was a welcome relief to our planning stresses. Instead of having to worry about making cards or menus ourselves, we were so grateful to put our trust in Belinda who delivered above and beyond what we could expect.
We highly recommend hiring Belinda, especially if you’re looking for a talented and kind wedding vendor. Not only are her artistic skills incredible, but so is her ability to really understand what the client is looking for. We had never done something like this before, so sometimes verbalizing what we were looking for was challenging for us. But Belinda was able to take our sparse details and create what we couldn’t put into words. She was able to take the vision we had in our minds and actualize it onto paper. She is so amazingly talented and we were so lucky to get to work with her for our once in a lifetime event!
