Stephanie was great – I have absolutely zero complaints about her or her service. I heard about her through a friend and when I reached out to her, she got back to me right away. We met in person and she helped me outline my vision. Honestly, I did not know what kind of vision I had, and Stephanie really guided me through the entire process. She was so professional, respectful, and gave the most wonderful suggestions. I felt great after our initial consultation. Shortly thereafter she sent me a quote and it was within the budget I gave her with everything that I had asked for. We even added fresh flowers to the cake about two weeks before the wedding and Stephanie added them with no problem. On the day of the wedding she was prompt and efficient. She answered any and all questions that anyone had for her and even took the time to pin the flowers on every male! She was very easy to work with, no nonsense, and executed our vision effortlessly – I highly recommend!Sent on 12/28/2019

Incredibly personable and talented!
Flowers by Stem made our wedding day pure magic. It's hard to describe what exactly we envisioned for our special day and I'm not sure I articulated the precise style and feel we wanted. But Stephanie delivered! She took what I did know I wanted, amplified that vision and brought it to life. She and her amazing staff transformed the space with her flowers. When I saw my bouquet, I cried. She even included a very special flower my grandmother brought from her garden last minute. Planning weddings are ridiculously stressful, but in looking back, Flowers by Stem brought an ease and joy to the process. I can not thank them enough.Sent on 08/19/2019

The owner, Stephanie Stopka, is probably one of the nicest people you will ever meet and we would highly recommend her to future brides. We look forward to working together again with Stephanie in the upcoming wedding seasons!
