Fujiko's Flowers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I could not have been more impressed with the flowers which Marla of Fujiko's Flowers created for my wedding day. She was able to reproduce my dream bouquet within my limited budget and create the most amazing centerpieces. I never imagined that my flowers would look as outstanding as they did. She was always quick to offer a suggestion and is extremely affordable. Her work truly speaks for itself. I continue to get compliments on my incredible bouquet and the centerpieces. I could not have asked for anything more. To top it all off, Marla is incredibly sweet, hilarious, and always up for a challenge. She is amazing!

The French Estate
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
EDIT: POST WEDDING I have to say that the venue was absolutely incredible. Sarah was SO accommodating and really made my wedding stress-free. Not to mention that the venue looked absolutely beautiful when everything was added. I will post pictures in my bio when I get them, but I would wholeheartedly recommend this venue to ANYONE who wants something unique and low-key for their big day. It was a pleasure to work with The French Estate. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I am SO super excited to be the one to add this venue to PW! I found this venue by doing a little deep searching. Sarah, the owner, was friendly and warm and so inviting and made me feel so comfortable about having our big day at the French Estate. It's very centrally located around some really cool areas like the Orange Circle for photos, so that's also a plus. The payment plan is awesome; you can bring in your own caterer or you can have them use Elegant Affairs catering; it's about $25-30 per person which includes the cake! You are even allowed to bring in your own alcohol, which can cut the costs down tremendously!!! (You just have to hire someone through the catering company to serve it for you) The ambience is very quaint and serene it looks beautiful in the fall. You also have a lot of freedom to decorate since it's a very blank canvas, you can pretty much incoporate whatever theme or ideas you would like. The French Estate truly is a gem! Go see it, you won't be disappointed! BTW - I will let everyone know how the wedding goes afterwards, but it is in October, so I have a little bit of time. I just wanted other planners to be able to find an affordable venue if they are on a budget, like me! :)
