Elegant Floral & Event Design
I had such high hopes when I started working with Faxon, but they were quickly dashed. She is extremely frustrating to work with. She missed meetings, had a very loose planning style and never seemed to remember the details we had repeatedly discussed. She has her own vision and will ultimately deliver what she wants. That said she is talented and my bridal bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets and centerpieces were lovely, but other items either missed the mark or were missing entirely. Most frustrating of all, it seemed every time we spoke, her price increased from our original proposed cost. Overall, I was extremely disappointed and did not feel the quality matched the pricetag. I recommend looking elsewhere for your perfect flowers.
Faxon made the most extraordinary and magical arrangements for our wedding. It was really important to me that the flowers for my wedding be original and imaginative, and Faxon completley understood and realized my vision. We got so many compliments, everyone loved them and it added to the fun and style of our wedding. It also made me feel so good knowing that we were making a good decision about our environmental impact by working with Faxon! I look forward to working with her again in the future.
We had such a great experience with Faxon! I don't know much about flowers and I didn't really know how to communicate the look we were going for. We just told her we wanted a white arrangement. She took us to the flower market and put together the most beautiful arrangement for us. It was even prettier than I had imagined! The bouquets were absolutely perfect! Everything turned out so beautiful. We made sure to take lots and lots of photos of the flowers at the wedding!
You won't find a more hands on experience as you will with Faxon! I was drawn to her for her eco minded practice and got SO much more! I loved working with her. She brought my mom and I to the flower market and she was able to read my response to the flowers we were seeing without me even saying anything (a real key to keeping the peace between my mom and I). She really listened to me and gave me gorgeous wedding flowers, each piece unique. The arrangements were so bright and cheerful. She truly captured the magic of the day.
Faxon arranged the flowers for our wedding, and they were even more beautiful than we had hoped. She is a real artist - she works hard to understand exactly what your vision is for your wedding flowers, and makes it happen. She doesn't stop at half measures either. If there's something wrong with the test bouquets, she'll fix it. If there's something missing, she'll find it for you. I highly recommend her - the flowers she made for our wedding were wonderful.
Faxon Green is a joy to work with and a true artist in every sense of the word. She lets her flowers inspire her designs rather than imposing designs on her flowers; and the results of this intimate communication are nothing short of inspiring! In addition she works with the soundest ecological materials, so you needn't wonder what might be leeching into your wedding cake from the lovely blossoms decorating it.
Faxon's designs are truly elegant and her keen ability to mix unexpected textures is amazing, very organic and green in all her designs. A delightful, warm, and kind person who has your best interest at heart.
Boston's Exclusively Green-Friendly Studio
Eco-Elegance couples the art of design with the science of sustainability. Faxon's studio is a potpourri of plants, living material from the seashore and woodlands. Large shards of Mexican clay pots, pieces of granite, re-cycled copper and hollowed out birch bark fill the space. Extra long bear grass and large-leaf foliage "sit" in buckets beside newly harvested grape vines and bittersweet. She uses these materials to create visual delight and to make the infrastructure needed to sculpt an arrangement.
