Super Flexible

Flo was an absolute pleasure to work with, from start to finish. She listened to what we wanted and created a beautiful ceremony. The vows written for us were perfect. Her flexibility as we planned around a global pandemic was greatly appreciated. A true professional.

I attended the wedding of a good friend of my wife and I. The venue was extremely well decorated and at the front of the room was a white archway with lights, a fabric walkway covered with flower peddles. Under the arch stood Florence with her a stole over her black dress. It was easy to identify her as the one performing the service. After speaking to her after the service I found out that she’d met earlier that week with the Bride and Groom to go over their Vows they had created. She also added something I have never seen at a wedding before, each of them added sand to a glass as a remembrance of their uniting their lives. The sand symbolizes that they now are joined and that their lives are now as one. The glass of sand is something that they take with them as a memory of the wedding.
Florence was very smooth in her delivery of the ceremony, didn’t rush, explained things clearly to all attending. Her words had meaning, and sent a message to all attending that the new couple were being joined together. I’ve given Florence a high rating because I feel she did an exceptional job with the wedding..
