"You did a beautiful job with all the floral projects for Miriam's wedding. It was all so stunning and magnificently simple and effective.  Those gerbera daisies are amazingly long living ... the centerpieces stayed alive for approximately a week.  A number of people inquired about who did the flowers, so I imagine eventually you will see some business coming your way.  The gazebo look glorious with all the solid red against the white wood.  Very, very impressive, and excellent craftsmanship." - Miriam's father

"Thank you for all the wishes and especially for all those tremendously beautiful flowers that you designed for our wedding. The flower arrangements were great and made the room so much prettier and soothing. I am especially thrilled with the quality of the flowers as well as the glass containers (vase) that you used. Typically, in most of the weddings, the quality of those vases is so bad that they are treated more like trash to bring home. But we liked all of the flowers so much we brought all of them home!!!  We are so glad we picked you to do our wedding flowers! I will refer any of my friends who may need flowers." - Patricia & Al

The flowers in the altar urns were particularly stunning. We loved your creativity and how you so nicely interpreted my goals for the flowers. The head table was spectacular with the sprinkled petals and dried flowers too. But I have to tell you, when I first walked into the dining room, I was just amazed and enthralled over how you transformed the plain space into an absolute fairy tale wedding venue with the softly draped tulle on the beams and the ceiling.
