A Dream Come True
Emma was simply fantastic. She captured exactly what I wanted and even added some extras that made my vision of my wedding bouquet even more fabulous. Even from our first phone call, I knew that Emma was an artist that took her craft very seriously and tries her best to capture the essence of her clients. I received so many compliments on my bridal bouquet. She is, no doubt, the best!Sent on 02/11/2020
