I would also have to warn brides about using Croska on Etsy for their bouquets. Her bouquet was one of the first purchases I made following my engagement. I contacted and purchased the bouquet in August of 2010. She assured me that she would have my bouquet to me well before Christmas and since my wedding was scheduled for April at the time, I thought this was acceptable. Well, thankfully we pushed our wedding back to October, because dates kept passing and she would be unresponsive or give me excuses. I did not receive my bouquet until the Spring. I know she made other bouquets because she posted pictures on her Facebook, but must have been having issues with other brides because she blatently posted on her status to not contact her through her Facebook page. Well...you had to because she wouldn't respond to your Etsy messages. It was overall just disappointing. I had been so excited about it, finally received it and it just felt ehhh about it. I ended up using real flowers for my bouquet and will be selling the Croska one.

Fiore of Pensacola
Shannon and her staff at Fiore are wonderful to work with. The flowers was the one area of the wedding I had no idea how they would turn out. I was extremely happy! My bouquet was amazing and I actually shed a tear the next day when I realized they couldn't last forever. They were able to work with my budget and provided me with a great quality of service. Thank you!

Old Christ Church
Ever since I was in college at UWF, I knew this was the church I had to get married at...and I had never even been inside!! Well fast forward 9 years later and it was magical! My husband grew up visiting this church on field trips with his school. Casey was so great to work with. We had originally planned to get married in April, but Casey was super understanding about us wanting to push it back to October. Our guests were so impressed with its beauty and history. I love being able to close my eyes and see myself walking down the aisle of Old Christ!

I can't even begin to describe how wonderful Wendy is. Amazing just doesn't cover it! Wendy went above and beyond to capture every detail of our day. I know she must've gone home and slept for days after photographing our wedding. She is so much fun to work with and was even able to get my camera shy husband to really enjoy having his picture made. I want to scream from the rooftops about how great she is! Thank you, Wendy!!!
