"Brenna was highly recommended to us by our wedding coordinator. When we first met with her and reviewed samples of her incredible work, we did not hesitate to hire her services for our wedding stationery. Brenna was a true pleasure to work with, easy to deal with and incredibly creative! Further, she was always open to our ideas, made a number of fantastic suggestions, and never rushed us to make a final decision. We told her what we were looking for, and she managed to build multiple designs that exceeded our every expectation, within our budget. When seeing the final product from Brenna, we were so happy and unbelievably pleased how beautiful her creations turned out for us. In the end, we hired Brenna to design and build all of our wedding invitations, our menu cards, ceremony programs and thank you cards. And, on a number of occasions she went way above and beyond when we needed her help with some tiny extras for our special day. We absolutely loved working with her; Brenna is so incredibly passionate about her work and it shows. In short, she exceeded our every expectation! We would highly recommend Brenna to anyone looking for thoughtful, unique, exquisitely designed stationary for a wedding or any other memorable occasion!"

"We found Brenna when searching for Tiffany Style Wedding Invitations on the internet. I was, at first, hesitant about dealing with someone only through e-mails. But, right from the beginning, she was and continued to be extremely responsive to our many questions and requests throughout the whole wedding process. Brenna is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. We couldn’t have been happier with all the items she provided, from the Tiffany Style Save the Date magnets to the Invitations, Programs, Place Cards, Table Numbers and Thank You Cards. After the invitations were sent out, we immediately started to hear from guests that the Tiffany Style Wedding Invitation was the most beautiful invitation they had ever seen. One guest commented that she actually thought she was opening up a Tiffany gift. Brenna was a huge part of making my daughter’s wedding day so magical. She was such a pleasure to work with and was so helpful and patient in the layout and design process. Brenna is definitely living her passion. She is such a talent! Thank you so very much, Brenna. YOU REALLY ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!"

"I LOVE BRENNA!! She was one of my favorite vendors - professional, easy to work with, and the invites were BEAUTIFUL! I was looking for invites that were exceptional, and I was really bummed to find the same wedding pocket invites in all the catalogues and websites. I came across Brenna's business card from the bridal fair and I emailed her. She quickly responded and was able to set up an appointment right away. When she showed me her work I was really impressed! My husband and I liked her, she was very amiable so we signed a contract with her. A few days later she emailed me the invitation layouts. She listened to our request and she customized the invites exactly the way we wanted it. It was really nice of her to drop off the wedding invites at my work. When I saw the invites I was so speechless. They were just how I wanted them but so much better. My guests at the wedding had wonderful comments about them, and someone said it was the "prettiest and classiest invites" she's ever seen. My husband and I were impressed with Brenna and her work."

"Brenna was amazing!!! I live in Texas and Brenna's studio is in California, so there was definately some distance between us; but I felt like her studio was down the street from me. That is one of the main reasons we chose Brenna to do our invitations: she ALWAYS responded immediately to all my emails and phone calls. Brenna is unbelievably talented and she is a genius when it comes invitations. We loved working with her so much that we also used her for our rehearsal dinner invitations, table number cards, and rehearsal dinner menus. It was a pleasure working with Brenna and I cannot wait to use her again!!! We have found our "invitation specialist" for life!"
- Kirby, Houston, Texas
"We hired Brenna to do our invitations after falling in love with her custom cherry blossom invitations online. Although our wedding was all the way across the country, Brenna was constantly available by phone or email to help me with any questions I had and her attention to detail is astounding. Everyone complimented on her beautiful work, and Brenna also made custom magnets for my wedding favors that matched the invitations that were an absolute hit! I couldn't recommend anyone higher than Brenna Catalano Design Studio!"
- Christa and Andrew, Kentucky
"Brenna, Got the invitations this morning, and all I can say is "WOW"! My fiance and I are just thrilled. They are everything I was hoping for and more, they are simply beautiful. I thank you for all your design suggestions, you were spot on with everything you guided me to. You made this whole process so easy, and I couldn't be happier with the end result. Thank you so much again"
Update: "I wanted to let you know that the feedback we have been getting from your invitations has been amazing. Most people have been telling us that they are the most beautiful invitations they have ever seen!"
- Laura, California
"For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with wedding invitations--I was always so excited to see the design, monogram, papers, colors, style, and theme that a bride chose when an invitation arrived in the mail. Naturally, when I got engaged I knew that my wedding invitation would be one of the most important choices that I made during the planning process. Almost immediately I started looking for the perfect stationery vendor and invitation design. All of my local print shops and stationary stores were a huge disappointment. I looked through hundreds of invitations in big thick binders, but nothing jumped out at me. I knew that I wanted something different and beautiful and completely representative of the tone and style of my wedding. I looked through countless invitations online as well, but I found that the big online company could not customize everything exactly the way I wanted it.
After many hours of searching, I somehow found my way to Brenna's website. Almost immediately after viewing the photos of the incredible invitations in her online gallery, I knew that Brenna would be the perfect stationer to work with. One invitation in particular, the Orchid II, had the look and feel that I had envisioned all along. I wanted hydrangeas on my invitation as they were a big part of my overall wedding theme, so I emailed Brenna andasked if it would be possible to use hydrangeas instead of orchids. She responded with great enthusiasm for the project and opportunity to paint a new design.
Brenna is a truly talented artist with an excellent eye for design. She was always very easy to work with and explained the entire design and printing process and answered any questions I had along the way. Since Brenna's studio is in California and I live in Massachusetts, we communicated through email and by phone. I sent her pictures of colors I was using in my wedding and described the general feel I was looking for, and she sent me sample swatches of papers and envelopes. It was a very easy process and I felt good knowing exactly who was designing and assembling my invitations.
The finished invitations were honestly the most beautiful I have ever seen. It was a very special moment when my mom and I opened them for the first time--my mom even cried! Brenna had packaged the invitations in a special box for shipping and made sure every detail of the presentation was perfect.
I cannot say enough to express how amazing Brenna's work is and how excellent she is to work with. I would without a doubt recommend Brenna to any future bride looking for that special invitation, she will surely meet anyone's highest expectations!"

"When I was searching wedding invitations multiple vendors referred me to Brenna Catalano Design Studio. I was looking for fantastic printing company that could handle all my wedding graphic needs. I have a very demanding job therefore I also needed someone I could connect with via email and not actually have to visit their location. Brenna was a perfect match. She started off with a phone consultation and gave us suggestions and recommendations on what products would best suit our needs. She sent over layouts for us to view and within days our invitations were stamped, with envelopes printed with guest addresses, stuffed and mailed out…there was absolutely no work and no hassle on our part! She made it so simple plus the services were very affordable…I would definitely use her again for other events. She also did our place cards, thank you notes and a seating chart display which now is now a keep sake for us. She even made writing our thank you notes easy on us by addressing all the envelopes to the individual who gave us gifts! We received so many compliments on the stationery used and we have Brenna to thank for making our day so special."

"Brenna was fantastic!! Let me begin with I live in Texas and she is in California, we did everything over the phone, email or mail. I was a little nervous about this, but Brenna quickly eased my nerves during our very first phone conversation. She was such a pleasure to work with and she was so helpful in the layout/design process. I gave her my vision and she turned it into reality...and better than I could have imagined. She got on my wedding website while we were on the phone and she sent me paper samples to ensure color/paper choice-no other stationer I interviewed did that. Her organization, attention to detail, prompt response and follow up put me a ease knowing she would take care of things ahead of schedule.
I loved my invitations so much I had Brenna do my wedding programs and some reception signs for our photo booth. She designed everything to match and I couldn't have been happier. I will definitely use her again and I HIGHLY recommend her...you will be so glad you did!"
- Jennie and Dave, Texas
"We hired Brenna to do our wedding invitations for our destination wedding. We found her website by luck on the internet and liked what we viewed. From the very start, working with Brenna made us feel very comfortable during each step of the process. Brenna is a professional that knows how invitations should be properly written. We never spoke to Brenna and only communicated through email. In today’s world, this is very difficult but with Brenna’s talent, working with her long distance isn’t an issue. The end product was perfect and we received many compliments from our guests.
If you are getting married or planning a special event, Brenna is the individual you need to contact if you want your invitations to be unique and special. "
- Amanda and Joshua, Minnesota
"Brenna at Brenna Catalano Design Studio was the best vendor to work with! She was always available and very eager to work with me to make sure the designs were exactly what I wanted - she really let me customize the design and colors. Brenna provided ceremony programs, wine labels and escort cards for me, and I wish I had found her soon enough to do my invitations as well! All the items were perfectly coordinated and really pulled together the theme and color scheme of my wedding. The products were extremely professionally done and gorgeous. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend her!"
- Mallory, Quincy, Massachusetts
"If you want an elegant, amazing, beautiful and thought out wedding invitation then you must use Brenna! My husband and I first met Brenna when we were at a Bridal Fair in San Jose. We wanted an invitation to start off of what we wanted the Guest to expect of our wedding. We had our wedding at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. A truly elegant event that deserved the most amazing invitation. When we saw her booth at the fair, we knew right then and there this was it. She has beautiful ideas. Our wedding colors were black, white and red. We got the Thai silk portfolio invitations which were wrapped with a red ribbon with a poker chip (pre-favor) in the middle of the ribbon. We had the most amazing feedback from all of our friends and family that received the invitation. They knew from that invitation that we were really going to put on a show! We met with Brenna on several occasions to go over every last intricate detail of the invitation. They were truly "over-the-top" invitations. She is very talented! I would and have recommended her to all of my friends and family!"
- Tanya, San Jose, California
"Brenna was amazing! She created some of the most beautiful save the date cards, wedding invitations and thank you cards for our wedding. After meeting her we just knew she was awesome. She was a pleasure to work with and is very creative with incorporating your color scheme and theme of your special day!"
- Amy and Casey, California
Thanks for dropping off the invitations the other day. We sent them out Friday and I've already gotten so much wonderful feedback on how beautiful they are.

"'First impressions are lasting impressions' and that definitely was the case for my elegant wedding invitations Brenna Catalano Design Studio created for my November 2010 wedding.
I also had menu cards and thank you notes that were equally as elegant.
I received so many compliments on how beautiful my invitations were that they just knew how beautiful they wedding would be to follow...just because of the invitation!"
- Vicki, Fort Myers, Florida

"Brenna, Thank you for all that you did to make our wedding stationery outstanding. We wanted something that truly reflected our personalities, and you made that happen. You had such a creative sense for our wine themed wedding - every time we saw a mockup, we were thrilled to see our vision become a reality. Even nine months after our wedding, we are still getting compliments on our invitations. They really made a statement and set the tone for the event. You were terrific to work with - we appreciated your flexibility, creativity, personal attention and fair pricing. I will continue to recommend you to anyone else I know who is getting married. Thanks again for everything!"

So thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
- Jenn, Spreckels, California
"Brenna, You are amazing. You have a special gift of hearing what your client wants and delivering it. We are so grateful for the lovely wedding invitations, wedding programs and gift bag itineraries. You did an awesome job. The invitation on wood design for our ranch wedding was perfect. Everyone was blown away when it arrived in the mail in the creative display box. The wedding itinerary booklet was designed in a user-friendly way for our guests. We enthusiastically and highly recommend your services. We plan to use you for our future events both personal and professional."
- Susan and Tom Lowder
"Hi Brenna, We have been getting texts and calls as soon as guests receive them and they absolutely LOVE the invitation.
The funniest thing is we have been getting a lot of comments from men, they say "i don't know anything about wedding invitations but this is the nicest invitation i have ever seen". The women of course are more expressive, they tell me that its beautiful, classy, and elegant and that they can't wait for the wedding. I love the invitations so much that it was hard to mail them out.
I'm not kidding, the wedding invitation was the hardest thing for us, we met with at least 5 vendors before you and we didn't have good experiences, we were ready to settle... But thank god that we found you... I can't wait to have future milestone events just so I can work with you on future invitations!"
- Lola and Tony, California
"Hi Brenna, Thank you so much for the stationery, we received it on Tuesday afternoon and when I came back from work I was happily surprised by the gift wrapping and it felt like opening presents :o) Everything is perfect and if you lived in my neighbourhood I would have stopped by to bring you flowers. It's gorgeous! Some of my friends already got the invitation and were delighted by the details.
It has been great working with you, I knew immediately I could trust you with the details and I am happy about your dedication, eye for detail and speed. Thank you!!!!!"
