I used Steven Bruce for my wedding earlier this month and I could not be happier. Steven and his wife Melissa run their business out of their home studio, which we were able to visit a few times during the planning stages of our wedding. Both are extremely passionate about what they do, and although at times it was hard to keep up due to my overall lack of flower/wedding planning knowledge, they did a great job explaining to me their ideas and recommendations. I was going for a semi-bohemian look but also wanted to keep the flowers feminine and formal. Although I showed Steve and Melissa all of my Pinterest photos before the wedding, I honestly didn’t know what to expect as they order their flowers only a few days before the event so that they can get the most in-season and fresh options. When Steve came walking up to my Bridal Suite on the day of, my jaw literally dropped. He took all of my ideas and combined them into something better than I had ever seen. Steve was extremely professional the day of the wedding and helped to create a no-stress environment. I would recommend Steve and Melissa to any bride….the process of deciding flowers can be stressful, but the end product will blow you away. And one other thing to note, they were very honest and reasonable about budget and stayed within the budget that we determined in the beginning of the process.

Steve and Melissa were amazing! Their designs for our wedding were stunning, creative and exactly what I wanted. I had a very poor idea of what I wanted when I met them, but with several careful meetings they coaxed it out of me and helped come up with a sensational wedding design. My bouquet was so stunning. We took it to Maine with us on our honeymoon and couldn't stop admiring it. Every detail from the table settings to the gift and reception table was wildly beautiful and creative and so unique! Steve and Melissa are both incredible people and we loved working with them. We could never have imagined a weekend so perfect.

Although, the end result of their flowers was magnificent, getting there was extremely difficult. This is a married couple that does the flowers. The husband, Steven, was excellent but their communication with each other was poor. We would end up telling Steven what we like and then the next week or two later, his wife Melissa would ask us the same questions as if we never even talked to her husband about it. In the end, we had no clue what they were going to do for us which caused a bit of anxiety. However, their flowers were magnificent. If you feel like you can deal with the not knowing and poor communication, knowing that in the end the flowers would be gorgeous, then use them. Hard to say if we would use them again.

I knew immediately upon looking at photos of other weddings Steven Bruce and his wife, Melissa, had done, that I needed to have them as our florist. The design far exceeded my imagination and everything was just stunning. Everything was done in such a creative, unique, and artful way. Every little detail was perfect and exquisite and it was even better than what I imagined.

Steven Bruce Design was the first vendor we booked. After looking over their portfolio on their website and blog, and talking to Steven on the phone for over an hour, we immediately booked. They did great work, were initially responsive and were able to work within our budget. We hit our first bump when we tried to set up a first meeting with them. We booked them around May and it took until March to finally set up a meeting with them. Steve is the creative designer of the business, and Melissa, his wife deals with business and communication. Both are very nice people, but Melissa is not a great communicator. She often doesn't answer back emails in a timely fashion, and forgets what you said a few emails back. While I appreciate they are busy, it's not the most professional. Often she's a bit abrupt in her emails. Again, I want to stress that in person they are both lovely, but they need someone else to take over the business and communication end, as it really is not Melissa's forte. At our first meeting, we talked a lot, and had fun, but I didn't get the sense that we got a lot done. I did really get the feeling that Steve was listening and knew what I wanted. In the months leading up to our wedding, communication got even worse. I was stressed, and Melissa often would take a week or two before responding. We finally set up a second meeting with Steve in May, and got a lot done. Although I like Melissa, meeting with Steve alone was much better. He was focused, didn't try to push his agenda and made us feel at ease. It was a great meeting. At our final meeting, they both were there and were both focused and we got a lot done. When they sent out the final budget and it was a lot more than we first had talked about. We were surprised, but were able to work it out. The day of, Steve arrived on time and my bouquet was absolutely gorgeous. We were very happy with most of the flowers, and they really went above and beyond with many of the elements.

This husband and wife duo are crazypants! But they are very talented. It was fun working with Steve & Melissa. Although communicating with them is frustrating. Their response time is slooow. If you are a patient bride I say hire them because their talent and overall product makes up for the lack of communication. My guests loved the flowers and were impressed how fresh they smelled. One gripe I had was, no one knew where the corsages and boutonnieres were. And I think I ended up with my maid of honor's bouquet and she ended up with mine. I wish they told the coordinator at the venue on where everything was before they left.

Steve and Melissa from Steven Bruce design are true artists and expert event designers (also super cool people!). To refer to them as florists- just isn't enough! :) Working with Steve and Melissa was an unbelievable experience- we worked very very closely with them for over a year and the outcome was more than I could have dreamed of. My husband and I really wanted special flowers and a lot of small details- and because of all of the time and effort Melissa and Steve put into our wedding we got even more than what we asked for!! Simply amazing- they went ABOVE and BEYOND on all levels and I strongly recommend using their services for your wedding or event. I am still getting compliments on the flowers at our wedding! They truly are the best in New York!

Beautiful work! SBD did an amazing job with the flowers and decoration for our wedding. I loved my bouquet so much. The end product was really an amazing show of exceptional talent. The communication was a bit frustrating from time to time. We would have to drive up there to meet with them and then sometimes I would leave feeling like we didn’t get much done. It wasn’t too much that you can’t deal with it, and I think it’s definitely worth it for the end product. My communications were always with Melissa, Steve’s wife, and sometimes I was worried about things getting lost along the way. However, everything turned out okay for us.

I want to start by saying that I never imagined that our flowers and displays would have ended up as amazing as they did. They were SPECTACULAR. People went gaga for everything - the centerpieces, bouquets, and the favors/escort table (OH MY GOD). Steve Bruce is in a class of his own and truly one of the most fun and fine people we had the pleasure of working with on our wedding. We hit a few stumbling blocks along the way - mainly in the communication department. Steve and his wife Melissa (who handles most of the business end of things, including communicating back and forth) were at times hard to get in touch with, and a bit forgetful in following up on questions/requests. But once we got together in person, our concerns were washed away. Steve is a creative visionary and I've never met anyone so dedicated to making your wedding the most beautiful and kickass event possible. Whether you're uncertain of what you want or a mega-control freak about your vision, Steve will work with you and deliver! Thanks Steve!!

Steven Bruce is in a class by himself. Incredibly creative and visionary. The flowers at the wedding were spectacular! We spent one morning showing Steven pictures of what the bride was looking for and it was interpreted perfectly at the wedding. The flowers were so unique and the containers they were in added to the Vintage, barn wedding theme that the bride and groom wanted. My only complaint was that the containers were so nice but we couldn't take them home as they belonged to Steven. We couldn't leave the beautiful flowers behind after the wedding so we took apart each container and filled glasses with all the flowers....we enjoyed them for a week afterwards and shared with our neighbors. I highly recommend Steven Bruce, you won't be disappointed!
