Are you wedding planners?

No, but we are wedding designers! Our services include full design, floral and decor, and day of design execution.


Why we do it?

Weddings are our passion, and we design and pride ourselves in every event we create!


How do we do it?

The “how” happens with an amazing and talented group of individuals. With our aptitude for design and hard work, we get the job done!


What sets you apart from other florists and event designers?

We believe that there is a great difference between a traditional florist and wedding design. We do not offer packages because we believe that every event, big or small and regardless of budget, is unique. We cater to each of our clients by offering custom ideas that enhance your vision for your big day. 


How long have you been designing weddings and special events?

We have been designing and producing weddings and special events since 2007. We provide full production services; we take care of designing and producing your entire event space which includes florals, linen rentals, and all other aesthetic details. 


Do I have to know my budget before coming in for an a appointment?

Yes! This is very helpful information so we can offer ideas and designs which are within your budget. We understand that budgets may change, but we need to have an idea of a general budget comfort level. We are happy to provide some basic general and entry level pricing over the phone to establish whether or not you are comfortable booking an appointment.


Do I have to have a wedding/event date and venue to make an appointment?

Yes. A wedding/event date and venue are a must before making an appointment. 


Do you travel?

Yes! Travel expenses are additional.


Do you do other events besides weddings?

Yes! We offer design and execution services for corporate events and other social events, like bridal showers, birthdays, baptisms, as well as bar/bat mitzvah.


How much do wedding/event flowers cost?

We evaluate every request on a custom basis. We have no packages and we have no hidden fees. We guarantee we will take care of you and your pocket book.


What is a realistic average floral/event design budget?

Floral costs are based on multiple factors, such as floral selections, seasonality, guest count, etc. A good tip is to set aside a floral budget that is a minimum of 15-20% of the overall wedding budget. Ex. $50,000 (wedding) * .15= $7,500 floral budget. This does NOT include linens or rentals. 


Do you have budget minimums?

Budget minimums depend on details, such as style, guest count, location, and season. Our full production weddings and events begin at  $2,500. Most weddings cater to 150 guests, so a realistic cost for flowers is 3,500+ based on the number of ceremony and reception florals (weddings and events less than 100 guest inquire different minimum).  


 Some brides do not order flowers for the entire wedding because the venue provides some centerpieces. Therefore, brides would instead order bridal party flowers. Bridal party flowers include  bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, junior bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, petals, and more. We have the options of delivery or pickup the day before or morning of the wedding. Our minimum on Bridal Party flowers is $350


What does full production include?

Full production includes flowers and design, delivery, and setup and breakdown. Our floral team will arrange  your wedding flowers and decor until it looks perfect! We will also breakdown after the wedding so there are no missing or broken items. After the reception, the flowers can go home with your guests or donated to a nursing home or other donations of your choice. 


How do I know my investment is safe with you, and how do you distinguish yourself professionally?

We have been in business since 2007 and hold a valid business license and insurance policy. We have a positive reputation with all of our clients and wedding and event industry colleagues that we have worked with over the years. 


Do you have payment plans and do you accept credit cards?

Payment plans can be incorporated as monthly, bi-monthly, or whatever works best for you. All finalized details and payments are due no later than 2 months prior to your event to guarantee our production. An initial $200 non-refundable retainer is required to secure your wedding date and to start the production of your event. We accept cash, check, or credit cards.


How do we begin the process to meet with you to design our event? 

The first thing we require is that you submit your Bridal Questionnaire so that we can have some details about your event and to verify our availability. After we receive your Bridal Questionnaire, we will contact you to schedule your complimentary consultation. During this meeting, we want to learn about you, your event, and to see if we are a good fit for you. We will also create ideas and show you various samples that will fit your personality, needs, and budget.
