    Gary and his team was amazing to work with! My venue looked stunning, and it was nice to work with someone who was familiar with Oheka Castle. Through the process Gary was extremely informative and helpful. He was able to aid in me in narrowing down my conceptual vision and the outcome couldn't have been better!! For all those brides who are on "idea overload" please give James Cress a call! I can not thank them enough for their guidance through this process, and all the compliments I got after the wedding!

    Wedding Florist - 8/31/2019

    I cannot say enough nice things about James Cress Florist! From my first meeting with Barbara and Brandon I knew they were the florist I would work with for my wedding. They were able to work with my budget and give me exactly what I wanted in the most stunning bouquets and centerpieces. I got married on August 31st and needed to add an extra bouquet and centerpiece on August 26th and they were able to work with me up until the last minute to ensure everything was done! All of my flowers delivered the morning of my wedding stayed beautiful for the entire day, and guests who took home the centerpieces said they enjoyed them for over 2 weeks after! Barbara and Brandon are truly a pleasure to work with and made the planning process fun and easy! Not only are they professionals, but they are some of the most kind people I have met in the wedding field. They are truly a dynamic duo and they 100% are the best in the business. I would recommend to anyone!!
