The beautiful paper birds Marna made for our May wedding in Woodstock, New York went way beyond what we could've imagined. The result was truly exquisite, each bird a masterpiece. They brought a fun, whimsical and totally unique element to the space, and meshed perfectly with the decor. So many of our friends and family shared with us how much they loved them. Marna was super easy to work with, flexible, and above all, is a talented artist. We gifted a few guests with birds to take home with them, and the rest will decorate our baby's room. We're so happy to have these special pieces with us - such perfect momentos of a very special day.

I didn’t quite know what I was looking for in the decor for my wedding. I just knew that I wanted it to be beautiful, unique and representative of me and my fiancé. The arrangements Marna made were everything I had hoped for and more. She took ordinary materials and transformed the rooms we used into spaces that felt gorgeous, graceful and sanctified. The decor was simple yet elegant. My guests absolutely loved it, but not as much as I did.    



Thank you for the beautiful bird sculpture. It was clearly crafted with love. No question, it is one of the few wedding gifts we will never forget.

Marna was a joy to work with. Her vision, dedication, and artistry contributed to our wedding in a deeply meaningful way. Every part of the installation was significant, right down to the paper she used-- which we brought back from India-- where we got engaged. She listened to me, made insightful suggestions, and together we came up with the perfect designs to accentuate the day. We frequently read the blessings people wrote for us on their place cards, which were placed in a beautiful box that Marna made. We were so lucky to have her create this beautiful work of art.  The best part, of course, are the birds Marna framed that live with us now. A reminder of our wedding day and an exquisite decorative piece.   



Marna Chester works miracles with the simplest of materials.  She transformed a plain room into an oasis of elegance.  She has the capacity to take ribbon and papers and fancy buttons and weave a beautiful tapestry. I am so glad that she was able to create such a beautiful ambiance for our event.
