( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My fiance, (now husband) and I were SO very very pleased when we met Lisa. She is very professional and has worked in the business for a long time. She also doesn't just treat it like a job though, you can tell she genuinely enjoys what she does. She was so kind and easy to talk to. She wasn't pushy at all and let us discuss what WE wanted for our wedding. We had met with other florists that wanted to tell you more about what THEY thought your wedding should be like. My husband and I aren't that knowledgeable about types of flowers, and Lisa was really good at understanding what we were envisioning. She also really worked with us to stay in our budget. When we said that we liked peonies and ranunculas, she went over the cost comparison. I really appreciated her honesty.

She was so flexible with us and always kept us in the loop if there were any changes in the season of the flowers we ordered. We had ordered ranunculas for our centerpieces, and she was notified by the farmer (she has established working relationships with growers) that the season was cut short due to the inconsistency in the weather. She offered to do our centerpieces in the peonies, which was more expensive and offered to cover the price difference. I thought this was such a courtesy- to even notify us of this possible change. And of course, it was out of her control, yet she still covered the cost difference.

Also, she is very available- by email and phone. I think I called her the day before the wedding to ask if she could deliver our bouquets to the hotel, in a different location than the wedding- a last minute change in our schedule. Her response was "no problem" and just like that- with less than a day's notice, she had rearranged her schedule. She even made a very sweet comment for me to just enjoy my time and be sure to relax. Not to worry - the details will all come together nicely.

The day of the wedding- oh my goodness! Our bouquets were absolutely beautiful!! So lush and clean looking- they were the prettiest flowers I've ever seen in my life. I just LOVED the way they came out! Even better than I had imagined. Everyone kept complimenting on how beautiful my bouquet was. The centerpieces were just gorgeous! They went beautifully with the venue and the overall look of our wedding. For not being very descriptive people, Lisa knew exactly the look we were going for. The centerpieces were so romantic and clean looking- exactly what we wanted! We still get compliments from our guests about how beautiful everything looked!

If you are getting married at the Brazil Room (where we did), they are very strict, and she is one of their trusted vendors to work with. She knows all their rules and restrictions, so she knows the drill. Very important when working with this venue.

We highly recommend working with Lisa for your wedding. She is so pleasant to work with, very reasonably priced and will work within your budget. She does a beautiful job and you can trust that she will have your day taken care of- one less thing for you to stress about!
