I got married on 12/26/2009 and had a pleasant experience at Ninfa's flowers. From the start I told Crystal, the woman who runs the shop, I was a bride on a budget and she did all she could to help me stretch my dollar which made me a HAPPY BRIDE TO BE :)

This is what I liked about Ninfa's flowers: Crystal is really good at responding to emails. I sent her photos of the type of flower arrangements I wanted for my Gazebo wedding and she quickly replied with suggestions and answers to my questions. She was very helpful in suggesting what flowers worked best for our budget. On the day of my wedding, everything went as planned. She arrived on time as previously discussed and was ready to begin setting up. After the ceremony her and her team quickly removed the gazebo arrangements and moved them to the reception area a few feet away without me even noticing . I have to say Crystal made my wedding day go by smoothly and look beautiful!

On that note, I recommend Ninfa's flowers for that special day or for any floral needs . Crystal is easy to work with, professional, and knowledgeable about flowers. FYI, full payment is due 1 month before the wedding date. At the end we paid a total of $568 for a bridal, maid of honor, and mini bride bouquet, a corsage, 3 gazebo floral arrangements (which were later transferred to the sweetheart, cake, and sign-in table), 8 organza bows, rose pedals, and the rental of organza draping for the gazebo and aisle.

Karina was nice to work with. This was a d.i.y bride so she didn't require lots of flowers.

Note to all brides: For those brides that don't pay in full, final payment is due 30 days before the wedding. All this is on the contract & also on our information pages that we give to all brides that come in for a consultation. There are no surprises.

Diamond Bakery
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
If I could have chosen another bakery to do my wedding cake I would have. As part of my reception wedding package I went to diamond bakery to order and choose a cake. Over the phone the customer service was good. I made an appointment with them for a cake tasting and they were very flexible. They were able to give me an appointment with a 2 day notice. In person, their customer service was terrible. The girls behind the counter didn't care that we were there. They were all very young and were just doing their job. I had to ask for utensils and napkins for the tasting. Their butter cream frosting was gross. We ended up getting their whipped cream frosting instead which was much better. Our favorite was the chocolate cake with bavarian cream filling. It was really good. The other flavors were just ok. On the day of our wedding, the cake came on time. Although it looked just like I wanted it, it had much more whipped cream than other wedding cakes I have tried. I would not recommend this place to anyone!

Tie The Knot Ceremonies
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
After reading the two reviews below, I decided to contact Frank for for my December 2009 wedding and I am SO glad that I did! Frank immediately called back within the hour which I liked and we began discussing what I wanted to do for my ceremony. Throughout our phone conversations he was professional, flexible and very funny. My finance and I are huge coldplay fans so we requested he play specific music for the ceremony. He was able to download the tracks and play them at our ceremony with no problem. Prior to the wedding Frank had us fill out a pre-wedding interview sheet so that he could use the information to personalize our ceremony. We decided to fill them out seperately and hear each others answers at the altar. At our ceremony he made our guests laugh a few times and made our big day a sweet and memorable one :) If you are in need of a wedding minister I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FRANK for your wedding ceremony. He is great and I can't get enough of his east coast accent. *As part of the wedding package he downloads pictures of your day and uploads them to the wedding album on his website so you can share with family and friends. Also, you can check out prices and fees for his services on his site so check him out :)
