Winnie is WONDERFUL! I had very specific ideas of what flowers I wanted in my wedding (orchids and plumerias) and the feelig I wanted from the reception centerpieces (a clean, zen-like look). FlorUnique not only gave me what I wanted, Winnie applied her creativity so the finished bouquets and centerpieces far exceeded my expectation. I interviewed many floral designers but we chose Winnie because she was so warm and understanding and willing to work with us to create the look that WE wanted (as opposed to the florists who kept telling me what's popular or what THEY usually do). She brought photos to our first meeting to show us the types of looks she thought we were trying to achieve, and at our second meeting she put together a sample cnterpiece so we could pin down the look. Winnie was very accommodating and worked hard with us to stay within our budget and still get us the look (and imported flowers) we wanted. I couldn't be happier with the end result and I highly recommend FlorUnique to anyone looking for a friendly, creative and knowledgable florist who can really help you create a floral look that's both personal and beautiful.

Betsy is the BEST!! I know everyone says a bride is beautiful on her wedding day, but I've never recieved more compliments than on that day and over the photos taken that day! Moreover, I felt comfortable AND beautiful. I generally don't wear much makeup on a daily basis, so I knew I would need a professional for the Big Day. I didn't have anything to worry about. Betsy is so skilled that at the test session she gave me a glamorous makeover that had my family and friends saying that I looked like I belonged on a red-carpet (I couldn't resist showing the test photos to everyone). As great as that was, since we were planning an afternoon wedding, I thought it was too much. No problem! Betsy redid both hair and makeup so it was a little more relaxed and natural-looking and I ended up with the perfect wedding day look for me. And not only did my hair and makeup look good both in person and on film, but it held up throughout the morning ceremony, afternoon reception and beyond. I didn't need to do more than touch-up my lipstick that evening - which was easy to do since she kindly provided some along with blotting papers (which came in handy for my husband) and breath mints in a nice little silk pouch. Betsy's also a problem solver!! On the morning of the wedding, I noticed a smudge on my wedding dress! My family tried several things, but we couldn't get it off and my MoH was panicking (she'd brought it to the hotel for me) when Betsy calmly pulled out a white pencil and suggested we try hiding the mark - it worked!! I highly recommend Betsy to anyone with a big occasion, especially brides. She is more than an incredibly skilled hair and makeup artist. She is more than a professional - she is warm, friendly, relaxed and accommodating. She is the best!
