WOW! I was absolutely blown away by HEB and the gorgeous bouquets and floral arrangements that showed up on our wedding day. After speaking to several florists in the Austin area, I was frustrated with the "minimum $2,000" that everyone seemed to think was the industry standard for a spring wedding.
I have to admit, I was skeptical when a friend told me to look in to HEB. I was the bride who scoured wedding blogs and was picky to say the least. A grocery store florist just couldn't do MY special day justice. But after reading several reviews online about Christy & her team, I gave her a call.
I scheduled a meeting with Christy and gave her a vague idea of what I wanted in my bouquet and centerpieces and she quoted me a price SIGNIFICANTLY lower than every florist I had spoken to earlier. Still skeptical, I decided to work with Christy because I trusted her and, honestly, figured that even non-impressive flowers would be okay because of our gorgeous venue. 3 weeks before our wedding, I had my final meeting with Christy to firm up plans. At the end of our meeting she told me "I am leaving to move back home, don't worry, we'll take care of you." The perfectionist bride in me panicked & I set up a meeting with the new floral manager, Samantha, to make sure we were both on the same page. She was so nice and in the loop, so I started feeling a little better but was still nervous.
I can't even begin to describe how happy I was when I showed up to the venue on our wedding day. My bouquet had the peonies, succulents, roses and stock I wanted and they all worked so beautifully together! HEB did such a fantastic job delivering & setting everything up. I remember standing up in the bridal room looking over the ceremony set up and jumping up and down because of how beautiful everything turned out. I got so many compliments on our flowers; no one could believe they were from HEB.
I cannot recommend Samantha and her team more. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
