BDE provided the florals for my June 2014 wedding. We didn't know much about florals and only had a vague idea of what we wanted but Samara was able to take what little we gave her and develop a creative, thorough, and professional proposal within our budget. On the day of we had intermittent rain and ultimately decided to go with our plan B inside the large reception tent rather than the plan A outdoor garden ceremony. BDE was able to accommodate plan B seamlessly and many of our guests had no idea it was plan B and repeatedly complimented the beautiful decor. Throughout the planning process we changed and tweaked our requests and BDE was able to handle them all and ultimately delivered beautiful bouquets, centerpieces, and overall decor on our wedding day.

The flowers were absolutely gorgeous! I had a traditional wedding, but a very unique indian-hawaii themed reception. It was hard trying to figure out a vision for my wedding flowers, especially to match the indian colors and hawaii-tropical, and Samara sat down with me and we went through a lot of ideas. I changed my mind once or twice, and she was very patient. The final product, was absolutely stunning. I had beautiful, delicate white flowers for the wedding, and colorful bright elegant flowers for the reception. She was very understanding on my budget and did a phenomenal job. She is very professional and helps to think of all the details. It's nice that she has also has a wedding planner background because she kept thinking of things i was forgetting. I'd definitely recommend her to any of my friends.

I cannot say enough good things about Samara and this company!!!! She was consistently very responsive to all of my emails and questions. She listened carefully to my desires and needs as a client and gave helpful advice in areas where it was needed and useful. On my wedding day, I was absolutely blown away by the quality of work and the keen attention to detail that her and her team provided. I am a detailed orientated person therefore this was an important quality I sought in all of vendors. I am thankfully that I hired By design events because this company made my wedding day a huge success!!! I would definitely hire this company again and recommend their services to others!!!

Samara at By Design Events will get the job done! What I noticed about her is her sense of calm she exudes. That is essential to keeping everyone happy on the 'day of' any event. Between that quality, she also is extremely polite, professional and organized. She has the perfect combination of traits that make a wedding planner or event planner a successful one. She follows thru, asks questions, does what it takes to make everyone happy and relaxed. Highly, highly recommend By Design Events.

Unique...Remarkable...Creative! If you desire your wedding to be a dream come true, you need to call Samara and her team at By Design Events! I have worked with Samara and she is very professional, prompt and will exceed your expectations with her fantastic service!

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Samara and her staff on an amazing Orlando destination wedding. From beginning to end, they were extremely attentive to both client as well as vendor needs. I noticed that her attention to detail put our newlyweds at ease and they were able to enjoy a beautiful ceremony and an amazing reception. You are true professionals. Thank you!

Samara is a talented planner and event designer, a charming person, and a delight to work with as a fellow event professional. She has a strong commitment to her profession and to her clients, and is always relaxed and in control. We've enjoyed every event with By Design Events. Samara's clients are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Samara and her talented and capable team members.
