My now husband and I selected the Amelia Florist Wine & Gift Shop for our wedding floral needs. We spoke with one other florist before selecting Amelia Florist Wine & Gift Shop. The decision was easy, as Amelia Florist Wine & Gift Shop was the ...
florist for my older sister’s July 2013 wedding (she selected Amelia Florist Wine & Gift Shop after attending a friend’s wedding the Amelia team furnished flowers for).
My then fiancé and I met with Angela to discuss our floral needs. Not being well versed in the floral world, we conveyed the theme of our wedding, The Great Gatsby/French Art Deco to complement our ceremony and reception venue, The Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza’s Continental Ballroom. We informed Angela that our bridesmaids would be wearing different jewel tones, including a canary diamond yellow, sapphire, ruby, amethyst and emerald. I showed Angela a few Pinterest photos for a rough idea of floral arrangements we admired and I emailed Angela a photo of my dress, a slim beaded number in champagne.
We felt confident we when left our meeting with Angela that our floral arrangements would be as gorgeous as our wedding venue, we knew we were in good hands. As the wedding date neared I emailed and called Angela with updates as we had more time to analyze our floral arrangement needs. The team at Amelia Florist Wine & Gift Shop are incredibly helpful and responsive.
The day of our wedding, June 6, 2015, Angela personally delivered our bouquets to the hospitality suite my bridesmaids and I were staying in. The bridesmaids loved their mixed bouquets, which incorporated all five jewel tones. I was quite pleased with my bouquet, which featured green hydrangeas just like my bridesmaids’ bouquets, but also stunning orchids and calla lilies, with hints of purple, my favorite color.
The groom and groomsmen looked dashing in their boutonnieres. My husband’s boutonniere was comprised of an orchid to coordinate with the orchids in my bouquet. Our ceremony aisle floral arrangements were dripping with sophistication. The colors were bold and bright, just like we had expressed to Angela during our consultation.
My husband and I truly enjoyed coordinating with the Amelia Florist Wine & Gift Shop team and were pleased as punch with our beautiful floral arrangements. We highly recommend the Amelia team; they understood our wedding day vision and interpreted that vision into beautiful floral creations.
