Narine was simply amazing and I cannot thank her enough. I'm currently waiting to board the plane with my new husband for our honeymoon and I am just reminiscing on the perfect wedding we just had. I couldn't have done it with her. I hired her as our month of coordinator for my wedding at Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, CA (North Bay). Both of us agree that our wedding could not have been the way it was, perfect and memorable, without her help, assistance, and coordination. Our friends and family kept saying how lovely things were and a lot of it can be attributed to how Narine was able to coordinate with all the vendors and take what I wanted in our discussions and make them into reality.
If you need any wedding coordination skills, she is simply the best!

Narine was amazing. Her hard work for our wedding was more than appreciated. We loved everything and more, she took every idea we had for our wedding and made it come to life in an even better than expected way. She was definitely one of my most favorite vendors we dealt with for our wedding , she made sure everything was perfect. I would absolutely recommend her company to anyone looking to add a special touch to their wedding. My only regret is not being able to personally meet the wonderful person behind all the amazing and creative hard work. We will definitely send more business her way.

Narine of Sweet & Crafty is utterly fabulous. She delivered above and beyond my expectations for my wedding. She created our invitations, table numbers, escort cards, menus, and all the signs. Not only were all these pieces created flawlessly, Narine is also very efficient and professional in her communication and quotes. There were so many different pieces but Narine always laid them out in a way that made everything simple.
For the invitations, she went out of her way to procure the exact design I had my eye on, even though in most circumstances it would have been impossible to obtain it. I also can't believe the tons of extra work she did in finding and hand-sticking on the vintage stamps. Those types of extra touches wowed my guests (and me!).
For the signage -- I mean WOW! When I saw them in person I couldn't believe how beautifully they turned out. Her calligraphy is next-level.
Stop your search now, you've found the one. Go with Narine, you won't be disappointed :)

“Narine is a delight and really came through for us at the last minute! We contacted her in a panic after we realized we’d neglected to make arrangements for seating arrangements and ceremony programs and she nailed everything and surpassed our expectations. My only regret is not hiring her to take care of the whole wedding! Not only is she great at her job she is also incredibly warm and funny. Highest recommendation possible! Thanks SO much, Narine!”
LAURA + BILLY | 1.22.16
“WOW! Narine is amazing, her work without a doubt is the best in the Bay Area. She provided all of the signage for our wedding and knocked it out of the park. I will definitely be going back to her again for signage and invites ( even though we didnt use her for this but OMG have you seen her work?!?). I am super impressed with the ink she used, we brought her mirrors and the writing is STILL on each mirror. If you are looking for signage or any paper goods for your wedding, look no further!”
ALLY + JAMES | 11.21.15
“Sweet + Crafty produced some of most unique, elegant and personalized table numbers, invitations, thank you notes and more for our Sonoma wedding this past November. Our invitations were French-inspired, which matched the look and feel of our wedding. Narine came up with the design concept and handled everything from start to finish with minimal supervision and direction. She was professional, artistic and a pleasure to work with!”
KATE + JOHN | 10.10.15
“I can’t say enough about Narine. She is the biggest reason I didn’t have a nervous breakdown trying to put my wedding together. Not only is she super sweet and talented but she is precisely the kind of person you want in charge of such an important event. I felt totally relaxed knowing she had things handled. As for her design and crafty side, she blew me away with her signage and artistic ability to pull everything together. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again for any size event!!”
ANDRÉS + MICHAEL | 8.1.15
“Sweet + Crafty (Nariné) created beautiful chalk boards for our wedding. Her work beautifully tied all the different elements in the wedding and brought in a dreamy feeling. Her chalk art is impressive; the writing was beautiful and reminiscent of the provençal sentiment we wanted. Working with her was super easy, she is very responsive, and she was fast delivering. We highly recommend her!”
ELENA + JAKE | 6.20.15
“Narine provided “month of” coordination for us for our wedding, as well as helped us arrange our rentals. We would have easily been lost without her. She is calm, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. She was way worth the money, as she created the “magic” that happens at weddings. I was beyond calm on my wedding day. I had absolutely no concerns. Narine was perfectly organized and understanding of what I had envisioned. The day was miraculously smooth in my eyes and my guests. Narine had everything under control, despite the inevitable chaos that happens behind the scenes. What was especially amazing was hearing how much my vendors appreciated her. My caterer who had never worked with her before was raving about her after the wedding. She said it was wonderful working with a true professional. If nothing else, Narine saved us thousands of dollars. She recommended vendors within our budget, who were amazing, and we never compromised in the “look” we were going for. She was able to get us discounts through the rental company and passed along the savings to us. Let it also be known that Narine is a true artist herself. She is INCREDIBLY talented. Her art is amazing. Prior to the wedding industry she was going into art as her profession. While it’s not within the wedding coordination package, she is awesome at signage, calligraphy, and invitations. She brings that same level of talent and her artistic eye to her work. I would recommend her whole-heartedly. Also, if you get a chance, you should treat yourself to following her on Instagram. She has the worlds most adorable daughter. I love the idea of supporting working mothers! Especially when they have such great gifts like Narine!”

“I discovered Narine from Sweet + Crafty through my florist (only about a month prior to my wedding) and she created my wedding menus, ceremony programs, table numbers, place cards, hand written mirror table assignments and other various hand written signs. She is a Godsend! First and foremost, her creativity is amazing and her work is exquisite. I trusted her eye and style 100%. I loved every aspect that she brought to my wedding. I had an idea of what I wanted but she helped me narrow it down into a perfect, cohesive theme. All of my signage was beautifully hand written and my ceremony program and menus were understated and simple yet exactly what I wanted. She also worked very closely with my florist so I knew everything would flow nicely! I planned the wedding on a budget, and I thought that hiring a boutique company out of the bay area would be more expensive than what I could find on Minted, but to my surprise she was very reasonably priced, and in some aspects cheaper than what I found online!! I also felt more at ease since I could explain to her what I wanted and send her photos, not just having to pick from a bunch of options on a website. She really brought magic and elegance to my wedding. I can only imagine how amazing she could have been had I hired her to do the full coordination of the wedding!! Thank you so much Narine!!”
REGINA + MELODIE | 9.20.14
“We had our wedding invitations done by Sweet + Crafty and they were just perfect! Beautiful design, materials, adorable details and ideas. Narine responded very quickly to feedback and changes and accommodated our many late requests for more to be mailed! I would highly recommend her to help make your special day even more special.”
ABIGAIL + TRUNG | 9.6.14
Narine, from Sweet + Crafty was my month of coordinator and she was a pleasure to work with. She is professional and organized, while being warm and friendly. She was also wonderful with the families and all the different personalities. She kept everyone on schedule but did not make anyone feel hurried or stressed.
She also has a great eye and I completely trusted her with making sure our decorations and the spaces where setup how we envisioned them. My husband and I were very happy with how our wedding venue looked and how smoothly it went.
Narine made us feel that she really cared about our wedding and getting to know us, so she could make sure our wedding reflected us and what we wanted. She is amazing and we are so happy we found her!
ALLYSON + TYLER | 6.14.14
“Narine of Sweet + Crafty was both our day-of coordinator and the designer of our amazing wedding invitations. Narine is professional and creative, and helped my husband and me turn our wedding dreams into reality. We are so thankful that we found her! For our invitations, we gave Narine a basic idea of what we wanted. She worked with us very closely to create custom invitations that were exactly what we envisioned, down to the last detail. Our invitation suite was romantic, classic, and captured the vision of our wedding perfectly. Our invitations were such a wonderful way to invite our guests to our big day, and really set the tone for the wedding we wanted – fun, romantic, and outdoors in June in California. They were simply perfect. As our day-of coordinator, Narine worked very closely with my husband and me, and with our vendors, to make sure that everything was perfect. Narine helped me make sure that all my DIY projects would be implemented, but she also elevated them to a whole new level! I just had ideas… and Narine put them all together to create such a picture-perfect, flawless ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Throughout the whole process, she really helped me stay calm, which even the calmest bride needs two weeks before her wedding! In the month leading up to the wedding, and especially on the day-of, I knew I could hand everything over to her, and that she would take care of everything. She executed our vision beyond anything we could have imagined, and our guests were absolutely blown away by every last detail. She made sure that every sign, table, flower, and napkin was in its place, arranged our favors so beautifully, and made our tablescape into a Pinterest dream come true! Narine thought of everything to make sure that our guests had a wonderful time, and they did! I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator, invitation or stationary designer, and everything else that she does.”
NANCY + TRENTON | 5.31.14
“My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Narine of Sweet + Crafty for our wedding invitations. From our initial instagram communication, to final product – Narine delivered professional service, and beautiful, custom tailored invitations. I gave Narine some basic inspiration for what we wanted, and after a few tweaks and changes, she captured our vision perfectly and created a gorgeous, unique, and romantic wedding invitation suite. She made the whole process so easy and was always patient with us, despite of our three thousand requests for changes. Narine was beyond accommodating – specifically when I requested to have part of our invitations printed in Spanish – and she always made us aware of all of our options with layouts, fonts, materials, and designs, and when needed, made helpful suggestions while still being respectful of our wishes. We personally loved working with this wonderful one-woman show as she was able to give us the personal attention we wanted, which ultimately resulted in the creation of our gorgeous invitations that we will cherish forever. Trenton and I recommend Sweet & Crafty to anyone who is looking to work with someone who will help them capture their unique sense of style perfectly, and looking to receive exceptional service. Thanks so much, Narine! We LOVE our invitations!!”
LENA + PIERRE | 8.31.13
"I can’t say enough about Sweet + Crafty. Narine is a highly-organized, exceptionally-talented wedding industry professional who truly brings so many great things to the table. To begin, she is so easy to connect with– sweet, down-to-earth, smart and passionate about what she does. Her background in graphic design and the arts in general gives her a competitive edge. Frankly, she’s a never-ending pool of talent, from wedding planning and coordination, to invitation design and printing, to calligraphy, to favors (i really could go on forever). But what I appreciated most was that in working with her, I was working with a friend. As organized and high-functioning as she is (and she really is), Narine is a refreshing departure from the high-strung wedding planner who could arguably tempt you to call off the show and elope. She was consistently on top of things when I couldn’t be and in a way that was seamless and subtle. I’d sometimes realize that i missed some random, minuscule detail and text her frantically. I could always rely on a reassuring reply in the way of “already done.” So there you have it. She’s the best; young, fresh, always in tune with industry trends yet equally inventive and capable of creating a design, look and feel unique to each bride.
A million thanks to you, Nar!”
ANDREA + KYLE | 7.27.13
“Narine of Sweet + Crafty was so instrumental in pulling together a cohesive look and feel for our wedding this past July. She understood my vision, and was able to reflect that perfectly in everything she created uniquely for us and our special day (save the dates, invitations, escort cards, signage, table numbers, menus, etc!). Not only did she design and print everything, she even prepped the invitations (with ties/small cards – for over 250 invitations!), the table numbers (with frames she went out of her way to get for me), and shipped everything to me in San Luis Obispo. I am so impressed with her organization and would definitely recommend her for her insane creative and design skills, as well as her wedding knowledge (she seriously taught me so much that I couldn’t have read on a wedding blog!!). The save the dates and invitations were so beautiful, I had people texting and emailing me with compliments when they received them! And lastly, but definitely not least when it comes to wedding planning, Narine was extremely responsive over email/text/phone whenever I had a request or question. I love that!”
