First I have to say, all the flowers turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!! Virginia really worked with me budget wise to get our numbers within budget. We went through several quotes. I was a little nervous when we met with her 9 days before the wedding to sort out final details and she thought the wedding was 5 weeks away! She says she was never updated to our new wedding date (which had been set 10 months earlier) ???? she was worried about getting certain flowers in within the time crunch but she wound up getting everything in that we wanted. she also was going to charge me a ridiculous amt for these vases we wanted but that got worked out as well. I am lucky that I had my planner there advocating for me, and they have a previous work relationship so there was some rapport there. I think that helped me out in terms of numbers. But all that being said, on the day of Virginia really came through with beautiful work and she was nice enough to pick up on the next evening, allowing us to reuse florals for our 2nd day reception (trying to get our money's worth!)
Virginia (the florist) created my bouquet just exactly like I described it; however, it pretty much fell apart before the evening was over, so that was disappointing.
The attendant bouquets were perfect and the other flowers looked very good. She did a great job with our ‘non-traditional’ altar arrangements and the large centerpieces were unique, just as we wanted!
I thought it was a tad expensive, but I hadn’t shopped florists besides her, so I can only assume she’s competitively priced.
Virginia did a great job. She's not your ordinary florist, but that's one of the reasons I liked her. She cuts to the chase and helps you get it figured out.
