Responsive, easy to work with, great with budget!

From start to finish Gabriele was incredibly easy to work with. I was so impressed at how she was able to answer each and every one of my questions in my (one of many) lengthy emails to her. She was very transparent with pricing throughout, even as we made changes along the way so I always knew an estimate in my head. Our flowers were beautiful and perfectly fit our theme. I can’t thank her and her team enough for making our day so special! The pricing was beyond reasonable, I had to keep double checking the totals because I couldn’t believe it! I’ll be sure to recommend her to anyone that comes my way!

Amazing florist!

Gabriele was nothing short of amazing. She kept in constant communication about everything, helped me stay within my budget, and really listened to to what I envisioned. The day of the wedding she came early and had everything set up and waiting for us. I would use her again in a heartbeat!
