out of 5.0
Karen Alumno of Freshbloom is a very talented florist. Hiring her was a bit of a splurge but she was definitely worth it! I was very impressed on how my centerpieces, bouquets, and all the arrangements turned out. I admit I wasn't the best client at keeping in touch due to work, family stress, and a recent death in the family. Still, Karen was patient with me and was able to come up with fabulous arrangements based on pictures and examples I had given her. Being that there were no trial bouquets or samples shown due to the lack of communication on my end, she definitely wowed me the day of the wedding. My bouqet and centerpieces were very lush and vibrant. In fact I loved my bouquet so much that I couldn't stop looking at it. Everyone had complimented how beautiful it was. It had become the centerpiece of the sweetheart table as I wanted to keep tabs on it. I had planned to get it preserved. Sadly, I was so devastated to find out that my bouquet had been stolen towards the end of the reception while we were doing our last dance. Even to this day, I still wonder who had taken it as I want to tell them to their face what they did was evil and traumatizing. Anyways Karen is amazing. She definitely was able to put everything together the way I had envisioned it, but even better. The moment I met with Karen for a consultation, I definitely could tell that the woman is very stylish and classy. She was very well prepared with examples of the work she had done as well as explaining what type of flowers would work well with the look I was going for and my budget. From the consultation, I already knew that I could trust Karen as I truly felt she understood my style and personality. I recommend future brides and event coordinators to check Freshbloom out. One more thing, Karen and her husband, Curtis saved the day as one of my flower girls had knocked over one of the arrangements prior to the ceremony. I had no idea until my videographer had blogged about it. Karen was well prepared and Curtis was quick at clearing it up. She re-arranged everything in a spare vase.
