We had a small wedding so all of our choices were very deliberate. One choice we made was to use choose a flower vendor with sustainable practices and that's when we contacted Faxon. Other than agreeing to how many centerpieces we needed, we left the color and flower choice to her, requesting whatever is in season that week - we wanted local flowers. What she produced was just perfect for us and quite beautiful. I think her services were a bit more expensive than some other florists who contacted us, but the flowers were delivered on time, were beautiful and made us feel good about ourselves.
I had such high hopes when I started working with Faxon, but they were quickly dashed. She is extremely frustrating to work with. She missed meetings, had a very loose planning style and never seemed to remember the details we had repeatedly discussed. She has her own vision and will ultimately deliver what she wants. That said she is talented and my bridal bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets and centerpieces were lovely, but other items either missed the mark or were missing entirely. Most frustrating of all, it seemed every time we spoke, her price increased from our original proposed cost. Overall, I was extremely disappointed and did not feel the quality matched the pricetag. I recommend looking elsewhere for your perfect flowers.
Faxon made the most extraordinary and magical arrangements for our wedding. It was really important to me that the flowers for my wedding be original and imaginative, and Faxon completley understood and realized my vision. We got so many compliments, everyone loved them and it added to the fun and style of our wedding. It also made me feel so good knowing that we were making a good decision about our environmental impact by working with Faxon! I look forward to working with her again in the future.
We had such a great experience with Faxon! I don't know much about flowers and I didn't really know how to communicate the look we were going for. We just told her we wanted a white arrangement. She took us to the flower market and put together the most beautiful arrangement for us. It was even prettier than I had imagined! The bouquets were absolutely perfect! Everything turned out so beautiful. We made sure to take lots and lots of photos of the flowers at the wedding!
You won't find a more hands on experience as you will with Faxon! I was drawn to her for her eco minded practice and got SO much more! I loved working with her. She brought my mom and I to the flower market and she was able to read my response to the flowers we were seeing without me even saying anything (a real key to keeping the peace between my mom and I). She really listened to me and gave me gorgeous wedding flowers, each piece unique. The arrangements were so bright and cheerful. She truly captured the magic of the day.
Faxon arranged the flowers for our wedding, and they were even more beautiful than we had hoped. She is a real artist - she works hard to understand exactly what your vision is for your wedding flowers, and makes it happen. She doesn't stop at half measures either. If there's something wrong with the test bouquets, she'll fix it. If there's something missing, she'll find it for you. I highly recommend her - the flowers she made for our wedding were wonderful.
