Stephanie is one of the easiest people to work with that we've encountered in all our years working in the flower business (a lot of years!). She is always professional and on point, making sure we all do our absolute best to make our clients' day perfect, but also personable and a pleasure to pass time with!
Stephanie Cook is one of my favorite planners! Energetic and detailed...It's always a pleasure working with her!
I've had the pleasure of working with Stephanie and the Creative Planners multiple times. These events are meticulously executed and each detail is obviously so thoughtfully implemented. You'd think such high-pressure events would be stressful, however, Stephanie maintains her loving and approachable attitude during the entire event. As a fellow vendor, it is incredibly reassuring to know that Stephanie and her team are always open to helping, answering questions, and being present when they could easily ignore you. Thank you, Stephanie, for always being a team-player and making each event we work together on more magical than the last.
