Amazing flowers!

I cannot say enough good things about Dawn and Mandy. They are SO SO incredibly talented and such a pleasure to work with. I had so many changes of heart with my color palette and was worried I would complicate things with my indecisiveness, but they did not make me feel that way at all. They always responded so kindly and implemented the changes I hoped for. They were also so understanding of budget and provided vases for the bouquets that I re-purposed for my table decor.

Another amazing thing - even though we were already at the end of Dahlia season, they tried their best to secure some and surprised me with gorgeous pink Dahlias - the last of the season!! The flowers themselves - STUNNING. My friend who is also a florist said they were some of the best arrangements she's seen. And they were GENEROUS with the flowers. My bouquet was heavy! Even the bridesmaids bouquets were of the same quality, if not better, than many bride's bouquets I have seen. Genuinely!

I love seeing all the beautiful arrangements on their instagram page. Can't recommend them enough for all your floral needs :].

Best florist for my bridal shower

I talked to Dawn at least 6 months before my bridal shower where I shared my vision and color inspiration. She worked with me to figure out how many arrangements I needed for my layout. She was so easy to talk to, discuss my ideas with, and she gave her professional feedback which I really valued. When the day of my bridal shower came, I saw the floral arrangements and I was speechless! They were SO gorgeous, bright, radiating spring - which is exactly how I wanted. I will share some pictures so you can see how amazing the florals looked and how well they matched the rest of my decor. I highly recommend the nature of things for your floral needs!
