Special Day for Our Daughter

Karen did a wonderful job coordinating our daughter's wedding. She was great at suggesting flowers for the arrangements and created the most beautiful bridal bouquets and centerpieces herself! Everything was affordable too. We would choose them all over again!

Karen is the Best!

Karen came highly recommended from my friend, Jenna, who used her services for her wedding in 2019. After the first conversation on the phone with Karen, I decided to hire her as the florist for my wedding (5/29/21). She went above and way beyond my expectations! From our first conversation on the phone, she was extremely friendly and helpful. She answered all my questions and even helped me think of creative ways to display the flowers (on the mantle at the reception, my Welcome sign and seating chart). The centerpieces for the tables were a combination of tall and short arrangements - they were absolutely beautiful! All of my guests commented on how lovely the flowers were. Karen's prices were very reasonable and I can't say enough great things about her work! She was quick to respond to all my emails and calls and her work is just GORGEOUS. You won't be disappointed if you use Karen for your wedding services - Top notch quality and a wonderful person to work with!

Made our Ceremony the BEST!!

Reverend Ray officiated our wedding on 06/04/2021 and we're so happy we went with him for our special day. We got married outside at a private venue in Charleston and while we wanted a casual lighthearted experience, we still wanted a religious aspect to our ceremony. Reverend Ray delivered on all levels! our ceremony was fun, lighthearted, personalized but also involved God and prayer. It was perfect! We met with Ray when we first booked and got to know each other. He made us feel super comfortable and we felt like we had known him forever. We also met Karen on the day of our ceremony and she is so lovely! She even sent us beautiful pictures that she took during and after the ceremony. It was such a great surprise. All around 10/10 I would highly recommend!!
