    Beautiful, gorgeous, wonderful! Working with Stephanie at Flowers by Stem was a fantastic experience. She is responsive, professional, and delivers an absolutely gorgeous end-product. I'm not a huge flowers person and Stephanie was great at using her expertise based on my vague recommendations to produce a beautiful environment for our wedding. I was exceptionally appreciative of her help and assistance. 5 stars & 100% recommended! Thank you Stephanie!

    Flowers by Stem was amazing to work with. The vision for my wedding was very clear, and they helped achieved it! Very easy to collaborate with from the very beginning up to the big day! Gave great advice on flowers that would pair well each other. Everything was beautifully executed and I couldn't of been more pleased with the flowers and decor for my wedding!

    Stephanie with Flowers by Stem is just lovely! We worked with her for our June wedding florals. Right from the beginning, Stephanie was warm and attentive. She listened carefully to my requests to create a beautiful vision of the day. Throughout the process, she was extremely accomodating as I tweaked a few items and made various requests. Creating your vision is her absolute goal and she provides valuable design advice. When the flowers were delivered before the ceremony, I actually cried because they were so beautiful. They were everything I could have dreamed of and more. Her design went above and beyond! I received so many compliments from my bridesmaids and guests about the flower arrangements. This included an amazing hanging fixture at the reception that was the cherry on top! I loved working with Stephanie. She was kind, communicative and totally knowledgable. I would absolutely recommend working with her! You will not be disappointed in your choice.
