My heart still skips a beat when I think of the secret garden she created

Christy with May Flowers is an absolute gem. I met with 3 different highly recommended florists, and it was such a tough decision. But Christy and her team were the perfect addition to our vendor team. I had a very long wedding lead up time, and over the course of those 3 years the vision underwent various renditions. Christy was right there though, cool with whatever happened. And by the end, she not only understood my final idea, but made it even better than I could imagine. My breath was taken away when I finally got to see the install in person, which maybe wasn't the best since I was about to walk down the aisle!

Another thing to point out about Christy of May Flowers is just how dang nice she is. In the few months before the long anticipated wedding, I was down a maid of honor, up a flower girl crown, and had had 2 additional officiant changes. Then I thought I could make my own bouquet, and Christy offered to help talk me through it. When I made it and it wasn't right, she happily made me a bouquet that tied in with everything. With like, 2 weeks' notice. And every time a change happened or I emailed her for help - she was a total ray of sunshine.

Let's go back to the install. While many aspects of the wedding changed, I remained pretty steadfast on this secret garden look I had in my head. I must have sent Christy a dozen different images trying to get it across, but I couldn't ever find something quite what I was imagining. I fully trusted Christy's abilities, afterall we hired her for a reason, but I was so nervous that I did not do an adequate job relaying what I was imagining. Now I'm chuckling because she *definitely* got what I was thinking and in fact, flew my idea out of the water.

I did not get to watch the install happen, but my brother watched it and he said he was in awe. At the beginning, the floor was covered in vines and flowers, and then they just kept picking up the pieces and suddenly had created this fairytale garden right before his eyes. He was shook. And this is coming from a guy who could care less about plants tbh.

I highly highly HIGHLY recommend going with May Flowers for your wedding or other celebration. Christy perfectly captured my vision without me even needing to know the proper names of flowers, and her team exquisitely executed every bouquet, centerpiece, boutonni猫re, and install with precision. My heart is so happy every time I think of the magical space she created with her talents. I wish I could have stopped time and just sat there and looked at it all for hours. May Flowers hands down made our long awaited wedding become the most magical secret garden setting that we had been dreaming.

(I still swoon every time I think of our wedding day. My heart actually skips a little whenever I picture it!! More pictures coming soon)

Stunning flowers, great service!

May flowers and Christy were absolutely awesome to work with. Our flowers turned out GORGEOUS. Christy really helped me come up with ideas for exactly what I wanted that would fit in my budget. Due to covid19, we had many changes throughout the wedding planning process - from our date, to our venue, to our guest list and wedding party - and Christy helped me update the flowers accordingly and was super flexible and accommodating. We had so many compliments on our flower arrangements. Thank you so much for such wonderful service and such beautiful flowers!!
