Frederick James Luxuries
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
Rick does great things with flowers. I would give him 5 stars for that. I told him what my budget was, and he verbally promised me that he could provide flowers at that price. I naively believed him and didn't have any of this in writing, nor specifics regarding what exactly he would provide. Months later, as the wedding drew near, he said that it would actually be 1.5x what we discussed. After lots of back and forth about how he couldn't provide flowers at that price or could but would require us to set up all the centerpieces, it finally took my wedding coordinator to "make him" honor his original commitment. Although the flowers turned out beautifully, I don't trust him and would not hire him again.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I chose Kim because of the raving reviews on this website. And, she was great! I was extremely happy with my hair. I highly recommend doing a trial run -- at the trial run, we didn't get it perfect the first time, but by the time I left the trial, it was great. She replicated that to the T on the big day, and the up-do lasted from about 9am to 2am (and my wedding ceremony was at a beach outside) -- I was very impressed. I highly recommend Kim!
