Kate Baker Floral Design
Kate BLEW me away on the day of our wedding..first in the morning, when I first saw our bouquets, and then later at the reception. It was all I had envisioned and more. She was great to work with from our initial meeting on, was always very excited about my ideas and my colors. She even went an extra step and put individual flowers on my head tables placesettings, and bar for free. I highly recommend Kate.she has an eye for detail and high-end design, that many other florists I met with, at the same price point,didnt come close to.

The guys, Rafi and Vic, at Icing on the Ring are the only ones I trust in the downtown jewelry district. They handled the purchase of our wedding bands about 2 years ago and gave us a great deal and excellent service. Recently, when I had the unfortunate luck of having to replace both my engagement ring and wedding band, they were like my jewelry angels. I gave Vic the parameters of my budget and the size, color, cut, clarity of the type of replacement stone I was looking for. He must have spent 2+ hours just on my first visit alone, giving me a huge education in diamond shopping, which was extremely helpful. He then spent the next two weeks searching for a group of stones that I could choose between, that fit my needs. On my next visit, he waited patiently as I inspected each stone and chose the one that would be set into my new ring. I am an extremely anal and neurotic person and I know for a fact that he sat there for another 2+ hours while I stared at these diamonds that may have probably looked almost identical to anyone else. (By the way, this is why girls should never pick their own rings, it's WAY too hard!!) I finally picked my stone and Vic helped me for another hour while I sifted through the dozens of options of settings they have in their showroom. I finally picked everything out and we were all set, I was going to call in with my payment information once I got home. My neuroticism took over once I got home and I started having second thoughts, so I decided I needed my husband to go down with me and look at everything one more time before we made the final purchase. Poor Vic let me in AGAIN to spend over an hour looking at my stone and setting.....I've never met a more patient salesperson in my life. I did finally end up choosing everything that day and handed over our payment. I had sadly been without my rings for over 2 months now and Vic bent over backwards for me, in order to get this done in less than a week so I could have my rings by Christmas. Again, a jewelery angel. I ADORE my rings, the workmanship on them is spectacular and worth every penny (although we got an amazing deal regardless!). I had my heart set on having the same head on my ring as my original ring, so Vic went and custom ordered that piece in order to make my ring exactly what I wanted. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would!!!
