    We used Cara for our all of the flowers for our wedding. From the moment we first sat down to go over what I wanted, she gave great attention to detail. Where other florist tried to change all of the flowers I asked for, she told me it was about what I wanted and would make what I desired happen. All of the flowers were perfect, they were all beautiful and attention to detail was spot on. Thank you for much for making our flowers perfect.

    Cara did a wonderful job with our wedding day flowers. We didn't require much because we were married in a botanical garden, and our wedding party was small, but with little direction she made absolutely gorgeous bouquets, boutonnieres and altar arrangements. We had a loose fall themed wedding and wanted vibrant, yet deep fall colored blooms. Cara delivered superbly on all accounts. She's affordable and easy to work with.
