"I had an idea- Will made it a beautiful reality. He kept me informed during the project, cost was fair, final packaging was delightful. I will definitely buy again from him, both custom orders and items from his shop!"

Jake M.

"Will nailed all the details we talked about. It wasn't a part of the wedding I was particularly focused on, but it's become one of my favorite elements post-wedding. I smile every time I look at it. It's wonderful craftsmanship, affordable, and imbued with so much meaning. And great people to boot! Highly, highly recommended."
