I have the best clients. Here are


If anyone one is on the fence on whether to work with Mekala - DO IT! Mekala is a talented artist who spends the time getting to know and understands her clients, is incredibly professional, and wonderfully kind. For our wedding we wanted to bring parts of our cultural backgrounds to life and Mekala did that with elegance and grace. Somehow, she managed to see inside our minds and bring our visions to life in ways we didn't know were possible. She helped us with save the dates, invitations, menus, wedding gifts, welcome bags, welcome sign and name card display. I wouldn't have changed a single thing.

Mekala's stationery work is probably the best I've seen. All of our guests raved about the invitations - more than a few people said the invites were the best they'd ever encountered. Someone even said they wanted to frame it. Mekala is incredibly responsive to feedback but to be honest we mostly just let her do her thing - her work speaks for itself. If you're looking for invitations, menus, save-the-dates, etc that really have a wow-factor (this is not standard stuff - it looks incredible and your guests will comment on it) then Mekala is the girl for you.

Mekala’s creations are stunning. Our guests were blown away, feeling like they’d been invited to the event of the year when they received our save the dates and invitations. Even the envelopes and vintage stamps were another level of awe. I want to frame one because they are so special and true keepsakes. Mekala was lovely to work with. She’s intuitive with her designs. She was so helpful, efficient and made the whole process easy and flawless. It became clear that Mekala takes a lot of pride in what she presents to you. That gives you the confidence that she will knock it out of the park. And she did!

I cannot express enough how grateful my husband and I are for the exceptional service provided by Mekala at The Tie That Binds. From the moment we had our first phone call, Mekala made us feel heard & so excited. She listened intently to our vision for our wedding invitations and branding, and with her unparalleled creativity, she brought it to life in ways we couldn't have imagined. Every detail was meticulously crafted, reflecting not only our ideas but also her artistic flair. Mekala's dedication and passion truly shone through in every aspect of her work, making the entire process seamless and enjoyable. Our invitations and branding were not just pieces of paper; they were reflections of us, thanks to Mekala's talent and commitment. We are beyond thrilled with the results and can't thank Mekala enough for making our wedding dreams a reality. If you're searching for someone who will go above and beyond to make your special day unforgettable, look no further than The Tie That Binds.

Our wedding planner suggested Mekala to help design our wedding stationery from invites to day of paper like menu and table numbers. If you want your event to look cohesive and stay true to an overall look or theme, I highly recommend booking the Tie That Binds! Mekala was prompt in her responses and brilliant with her design choices! She really helped our vision come to life and our wedding day would truly not have been the same without her work. Hiring her also saved me tons of time and stress trying to piece everything together myself. So thrilled to have had the chance to work with Mekala

I cannot recommend Mekala at Tie that Binds enough. First of all she was a dream to work with. My daughter (the bride) is a graphic designer, but was too stressed to do her own invites. (Also need to add that my other daughter got married one month before so we were all stressed out!) She literally found Mekala on Pinterest and contacted her. My daughter is beyond picky with font, design, etc. and Mekala worked side by side with her to make invites, and other wedding papers, menus, table signs, etc. exactly how my daughter wanted them. Her work was unique, gorgeous, and she even ribboned and stuff the invites and mailed them! We got soooo many compliments on those invites! And trust me, if my daughter likes it - they are good! Thanks so much again Mekala for making a stressful time less stressful, and for amazing work. You are truly talented!
