From This Day Forward
It was such a pleasure to work with Barbara with From This Day Forward over the past year to plan my wedding. She brought all of my ideas to life to make our big day feel so special and personal to us. I received so many compliments on all of my flowers and the beautiful arrangements. Barbara did not leave out a single detail! Everything was absolutely gorgeous, she was so accommodating and helpful from the very first meeting! I can't say enough great things about everything she did for us. She truly exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much for your hard work and exceptional service Barbara!!
Barbra was by far my favorite vendor! She was so kind and couldn't have gone more out of her way to make sure all the details of my wedding were perfect! She did my cup cake cake, flowers and decor! Everything was more then I could have ever imagined! Everyone of my friends and family said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to! Barbra felt like family and I feel blessed to have had her decorate my wedding! The cup cakes were delicious I had three different flavors and all were yummy! I would 100% recommend her to anyone and already have!
My cake was smaller than I thought it would be. The tiers were small, and I thought there would be bigger flowers on it. For a three tier cake the total cost was $352.00. When we did our cake cutting I noticed my Cake topper was missing. I purchased a Swarovski crystal double heart cake topper. I was crazy about it. Afterward, at home, as i was going through my things from the wedding I found my topper with the legs broken off. The legs had hot glue at the ends of them where someone had tried to glue them back on. I was very upset. I sent an email asking them what happened. and asked if I would be reimbursed for the cost. At first the lady said she didn't break it. Her story kept changing. Then she said my topper was cheap and poorly made. She refused to pay for the topper. This lady was not professional at all. She was rude and disrespectful. VERY poor character. I Will never do business with this person again. This is an ad on....After posting this review I received an email from Barbara (FTDFweddings) declaring her innocence, and defending her cake. So in all fairness let me make myself clear....The wedding cake tasted great. It was pretty. But..my cake cutting photos do not include my cake topper. Why? Because this lady BROKE IT! Im sure it was an accident but don't lie about it an tell your customer its their fault because they bought a cheap item. Barbara stated in her email that I went behind her back and posted this review. Wow I didn't know she was my "BFF" I thought this was a business transaction. Next thing you know she'll be telling her mom on me...GEEESH!.........................To Barbara "FTDF" You are free to come get the cake stand at any time. Lets be clear about this. I NEVER said you could not have it.
Vendor response to review
This review saddens me- Karen, I explained that I made every effort to repair damage to a cake topper that is best described as flimsy, and I also offered to contact the merchant you purchased this cake topper from to explain how the legs came apart. However, you never provided me with this information.
I also made a point to fulfill every detail of the contract for this cake for 50 people on the day of my brothers funeral, which the pictures show I did.
You do not mention in your poor review the glowing email you sent me following your wedding telling me thank you again, and that you were very grateful,and that this was the best cake you had ever had and that it was beauitful.
The complaints started ONLY after I attempted to collect a silver antique reproduction cake stand, valued at $300.00, that I let you use for free, which you have kept, or have lost or damaged and are afraid to return, since your wedding in June.
Barbara is awesome, she did our wedding cake, groom's cake, table arrangments, and all the wedding party flowers. Her cakes not only look delicious, but they also taste delicious! Her death by chocolate cake with fresh strawberries makes an amazing groom's cake! She is very easy to work with, and also does floral arrangments which made my life easier (kills two birds with one stone!) Her arrangments are beautiful, my red rose bouquet must have had 60-70 roses in it! Highly recommend, especially if you get married at Carrigan Farms!!
We absolutely loved our flowers and cake! We couldn't have been happier :)
I cannot recommend Barbara with From This Day Forward enough! She is absolutely amazing at what she does and is so incredibly talented. She perfectly captured the style I was looking for in both my flowers and wedding cake. The cake not only looked beautiful, but it tasted AMAZING. The flowers were perfect down to every last detail. As a wedding vendor myself, I always recommend Barbara to all of my brides and they always come back to me with nothing but exceptional things to say. Having the opportunity to see and work with a variety of florists, I can say with confidence that From This Day Forward tops them all. Instead of sticking to one specific style, I have seen her create a variety of looks unique to each bride with one common factor - they always look so beautiful and fresh! Barbara is so much fun to work with - book From This Day Forward and I promise you will not be disappointed!
I recommend Barbara with From This Day Forward to all of my brides. She does exceptional work and is extremely professional. Her cakes not only look beautiful, but taste absolutely amazing! I have seen her do flowers for many different brides and she manages to incorporate their style beautifully and always produces something original and unique to that bride. She has such a wonderful personality and is so easy to work with. I used her for my own wedding and couldn't have had a better experience!
