Above & Beyond Bouquets!

Donna is talented, professional, and so very kind. She was our florist for our wedding earlier this month (October 2023). The bouquets, boutonni猫res, and corsages that she created were all perfect and exactly what I had envisioned. I also loved how Donna crafted the corsages into pearl-like bracelets with the sunflower (our main flower choice) attached to it. We definitely recommend Donna for anyone鈥檚 floral needs! 馃尰馃馃拹鈾ワ笍

More than a day-of coordinator

I hired Donna as my day-of coordinator and florist, and I could not recommend her enough!! She was very responsive to all of the questions I had for her in the months leading up to the wedding. She did a great job of informing me of things I wouldn't have normally thought about. Her experience in the wedding industry was very apparent. Regarding florals, I originally showed her inspiration pictures and she was very flexible in creating my floral quote based on my budget without sacrificing the vision I had. The day of the wedding, she and her assistant set up all of our "from home" decorations exactly how we wanted them to be set up. And I was absolutely blown away by my flowers and her centerpiece designs she created! Thank you Donna and Team for making our day unforgettable!

Vow Renewal Ceremony/October 15,2022

Donna was so wonderful to work with. She brings talent, expertise, professionalism and is full of fresh ideas that made our vow renewal perfect! She coordinated with vendors, handled decorations, and put us at ease for our ceremony. She and her husband make a perfect team and work so well together. We will definitely look to Donna for future events.
