Tina Barrera is the owner and creator of "A Special Event" and actually works out of her home, but don't let that stop you from considering her to be your wedding florist. I actually went to Walter Knoll Florist first (judged to be one of the best florist chains in St. Louis) but the service and the knowledge of the staff didn't even compare to what Tina offered me. She was at least a third - if not half as much - cheaper than the other guys and she was very knowledgeable about each and every flower that was in season, which ones would wilt faster, which ones were available in which color, etc.

Tina was recommended to me by word of mouth, so she might not be as well known as other florists. However, she is still a professional - when I first met her, she had several photo albums of her work and I was very impressed. Each arrangement was beautiful, colorful, unique, and none of the flowers appeared to be dingy, beat-up, or wilted.

Tina does have an opinion about certain flowers - and she won't be afraid to tell you what it is. There were two specific flowers that I wanted in my bridal bouquet, and she immediately told me that they weren't a good idea (they would wilt too fast, they would fall apart by the end of the ceremony, I wouldn't have any flowers left by the time of the reception, etc.) and that we should try to think of something else. Truthfully, I was disappointed and a bit put out - but she was really trying to help. In retrospect, I'm really glad to have had her advice because she was right and I was wrong. She dosen't like working with brittle or fragile flowers simply because she knows they won't last you, thus you won't get what your money paid for - but she'll do everything in her power to work around the situation and find a flower just as good.

Even though Tina is the owner and operator, she has assistants to help her out, so she's not overwhelmed with weddings and she manages to get the right order of flowers to the right places. I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day.

Five stars for everything, but three stars for responsiveness - Tina is a slow emailer and also a bit slow in returning phone calls - but she was doing a wedding every weekend so it's only fair to consider how busy she probably was. In the end, she got back to me each time I needed to talk to her.

Tina was very prepared and even had a few flowers on hand for me so I could take a look at them and get a good idea of what I wanted. On the day of my wedding, I got exactly what I wanted and more - the arrangements were absolutely beautiful and I could not have asked for a better florist. I really wish I could post pictures to display her work. I'm 100% satisfied with what I paid for and what I got. I would recommend Tina to anyone on a budget looking for a florist just as good (if not better) as the chains.
