Most beautiful flowers I've seen!
Gretchen was a delight to work with! I had an array of ideas, flowers, and colors I liked but knew nothing about flowers. She somehow seemed to combine all the best elements and created the most beautiful bouquets, centerpieces, and boutonnieres I've ever seen. She also had draping and greenery throughout the venue which gave it a wonderfully warm and romantic feel, not to mention she surprised me with draping greenery on the outside of the barn which was literally picture perfect! Gretchen really brought everything I had I had envisioned to life... maybe even better than I envisioned :)Sent on 10/13/2020

One of a kind !!!
We got Gretchen for the partial service and day of coordinator for the wedding day, it was the best decision I ever made. It was such a stressful moment planning wedding during covid time. She was a wonderful help throughout the whole planning process until the wedding day. She's very incredibly detail oriented, organized, efficient, and her calm personality can ease any couples worries. I couldn't imagine our big day without her. Thank you Gretchen.Sent on 08/25/2020

Careful She Can Read Your Mind
It took less than 5 minutes for my wife to fall in love with the ideas Gretchen provided. She knew exactly what we wanted before we even said anything. The flowers & placement made our wedding gorgeous. The bride bouquet & boutonnières were even more beautiful than what we expected. She worked with us to keep within our budget and made sure we were nothing but happy throughout the entire process. All of our guests were delighted to hear they could take these beautiful pieces of living art home to enjoy just a little longer. Not only did Gretchen help with flowers but she also helped us find our caterer for the wedding but that’s for another review. Thank you Gretchen for making our special day so wonderfully perfect.Sent on 04/29/2020
Dragonfly's flowers stand out in mind as some of the best I have seen in the business. If I were getting married again and could have my "dream team", dragonfly would be among them!

I've known Gretchen for a few years now. She's very experienced, and her events always go smoothly and professionally. After our most recent event, the Bride went out of her way to mention to me how happy she was with Gretchen's work. The event was beautiful. I'm sure yours will be, too, under Gretchen's care.
