Working with Jeff was a dream!
Even before the wedding day, Jeff was always my favorite and most trusted vendor. He was consistently very quick to respond to all communication, and always transparent, which as a bride was huge! I wish I could have another wedding just to work with Jeff again.
I received so many compliments on the florals from my wedding! I absolutely loved every detail he created!
Out of this world!
