Amazing flowers! I only spoke with Donna twice and sent her some pictures and she was able to execute my vision perfectly! I got so many compliments on my flowers!

Here is why you should book Donna immediately: I live in St. Louis, never met Donna in person, sent her a few pictures of my dream flowers, and she made it happen. Seriously. We had a small, intimate wedding in Ocean Isle Beach, NC (but we live...
in the midwest) so you can imagine how difficult it was to figure out vendors. When you don't have the luxury of meeting someone face to face, you have to trust their reputation and character. Every single person I talked to in the area told me to go to Donna. When I told other vendors that she was my florist, most of them replied with, "Thank goodness, your wedding will be gorgeous".
My family has a tradition of getting married with dahlias, more specifically, yellow dahlias. Hurricane Florence hit 2 weeks before my wedding in NC, most of Donna's wholesalers were unable to get flowers and being able to transport ANY flower was almost out of the question. But, when I told Donna that this was a family tradition, she made it happen. She contacted everyone she needed to in order to get me those yellow dahlias.
Donna delivered the flowers while I was upstairs getting my hair and make up done, so I STILL have never met her face to face. But, as soon as she brought the flowers into the house I had 3 people come upstairs and tell me that I had the most beautiful flowers they had ever seen. One of my guests is best friends with a floral designer and was so blown away with their beauty that she sent dozens of pictures of what Donna had created. I could not have asked for a better experience, Donna is not only a creative visionary but a truly, genuine person. She will go the extra mile, she will make it happen. Thank you, Donna, for making our day so special. I hope to FINALLY meet you face to face one day!!!

d the perfect solution. I was concerned about cost because the venue was so big but Donna helped make floral suggestions that kept our costs in line and yet all of the arrangements were impressive. And Donna was so easy to work with throughout the entire process. I cannot begin to tell you how pleased we were.

I gave the florist free reign- my fault. I LOVED my bridesmaids white bouquets and the corsages for the mothers- using gardenias (not what I expected to be used). I was not as impressed with my purple bridal bouquet- I imagined lots of differ...
ent shades of purple but only had 2 shades and a lot of carnations. However, I think that this was my fault as I didn't give very specific instructions regarding what I wanted exactly.
