Perfect romantic June wedding

Deborah and her team were amazing for my June Wedding at Harkness State Park! She was incredibly thorough and made sure every possible surface/mantle/alcove was beautifully decorated and nothing looked bare or forgotten about. The flowers/greenery themselves were absolutely stunning and exactly what I wanted. Deborah was very easy to communicate with and responsive. We wanted to incorporate candles into the decor and the floating candles she used were above and beyond what I could have imagined. Every aspect exceeded expectations and I would definitely recommend using them for a wedding or other event.

My flowers made my day!!

Highly recommend Deborah and the whole team with A Gala Affair! I planned my whole wedding as a PICU night shift nurse during COVID all the way from Maryland- and the flowers were a huge priority for me. It was definitely terrifying to trust someone so far away (especially being such a type A person), but working with A Gala Affair from afar was amazing. They totally understood my vision and was extremely responsive to my millions of questions and changes, especially the two weeks leading up to the wedding. My flowers ended up being absolutely breathtaking and my guests still can't stop talking about how beautiful the event was. Deborah even surprised me with a preserved gardenia in my bouquet to honor my late Nana which I was able to keep after the wedding (her favorite flower)- this alone should show you how amazing this vendor is! The bouquets, arrangements and extra flowers throughout my venue were more than I could have ever expected! I could not be more grateful for the amazing service, wonderful staff, and stunning flowers and decor they put together for us. Thank you Deb and A Gala Affair for the best day of my life!

Truly amazing experience

Deb and her team were incredible to work with. No detail was overlooked. We gave Deb a general sense of what we wanted, and gave her creative liberty to execute what she thought would look best. We had the most incredible floral designs and everyone was amazed with them. They perfectly complimented our venue. I couldn鈥檛 recommend Deb and her team enough!
