y are Rebecca and her team supremely talented and artistic, they were also from start to finish a pleasure to work with, and incredibly organized, responsive, and helpful. In our first consultation Rebecca spent time to really get to know us as a couple and the vibe we wanted for the wedding. She suggested incredible florals and provided direction when we weren't sure what we wanted. She held a sample meeting for us where she spent time discussing every detail of our florals to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. She also went above and beyond when - about 2 weeks before our wedding - she realized the branches we had chosen for our centerpieces were starting to bloom differently. To make sure we were still happy with them she took the time to personally go to the floral market and create a new sample for us to come in to see at no charge. I think it is a testament to how dedicated and invested Rebecca is to her work that she personally showed up the day of the wedding to put everything together with her team. This was yet another example of how Rebecca attends to and invests in every detail. I cannot thank Rebecca and her team enough for making my wedding so beautiful and memorable. If you are an NYC bride, you absolutely have to work with them!

Our only complaint, which unfortunately left a bad taste in our mouths, was that we had discussions with her team about collecting back their vases for the flowers after the event, but that our wish was for our guests take the flowers we paid for. Unfortunately, flowers were taken out of our guests hands, including my mother in law who paid for the flowers, saying that it was our wish that the flowers went to a nearby hospital. I'm guessing this was a miscommunication on the staff's side from another event, but was definitely never discussed about ours and never clarified on-site before removing them from my guests. We were really disappointed by this and never received an apology, so it did rub us wrong.

Beyond the centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres Rebecca constructed a welcome wreath for us as well as an amazing hanging structure for our altar. Both absolutely wowed everyone there. In addition to the flowers Rebecca was great on-site, ensuring we had a plan for things like votives and other decor.

-working vendor out there. She crafted an online inspiration book for us, answered any and all questions I had within usually 24 hours, and she even spoke with me on the phone numerous times to flesh out my sometimes haphazard ideas with patience and care. At one point she even offered to go to the floral market the morning OF my wedding (IE at 6 AM) to change out the whole set of centerpiece flowers because I had second thoughts about the look of them against the table cloths. This all goes to say she is amazing. She is truly passionate about her work and she got me excited about it too. She went above and beyond for the cocktail centerpieces (and above and beyond what we paid her to do) because she was inspired by her creations. What other vendor does that??? I don't know many people like Rebecca. I know she had us in mind the entire time and she just planned our wedding flowers with precision, care, and focus. People raved about the cocktail and reception centerpieces (I mean RAVED). Walking into my reception was everything I could have imagined and more. My bouquets were stunning, everything was stunning.

She has an eye for beautiful arrangements, and can be as traditional or as creatively modern as you want. She also has amazing props (birdcages, suitcases, etc.) that can add some character to your event. But, most importantly, she listens to everything you tell her, and makes copious notes. For me, her attention to detail resulted in a lovely surprise at my bridal shower, where my late-grandmother’s favorite flower (a gardenia) was highlighted in a touching arrangement, thanks to a behind-the-scenes conversation between her and my maid-of-honor. And, sitting next to me at my seat at the reception was a beautiful, single gardenia – a touching surprise from Rebecca, letting my grandmother be there in spirit for my wedding day. Thank you Rebecca, for making my wedding beautiful, and for being such a thoughtful person – your touching gift to me was unforgettable.

I wish I could leave 10 stars (not just 5) for Rebecca. She was absolutely the highlight of my wedding -- honestly I think her flowers looked better than I did! Rebecca outdid even our highest expectations. She is very sincerely a floral genius...
-- she has a magical sense for texture and color that literally makes you want to gush. I was especially blown away by how Rebecca used her intuition to deal with two tricky situations:
1) I had no idea how to describe what I wanted. I don't think I really knew what I wanted, but I pointed to flowers that I liked and to ones that I didn't, and somehow Rebecca just got it. She compiled an extremely helpful online photo album, and we commented back and forth to get the colors, types of flowers, and composition just right.
2) My mom and I couldn't quite agree on the colors. Mom insisted on purple and orange together, and I was worried it would clash. Rebecca listened carefully to what each of us was looking for, and both my mom and I were blown away with the final result. She perfectly nailed it -- we had rich, lush oranges and purples that created a warm vibe, and it definitely did not clash. In fact, I was completely obsessed with my bouquet....it was so ME, even though Rebecca had only met me once or twice before! All of the flowers were so rich with both bold colors and soft yet crisp textures. 3 months later, I am still jealous of whoever got to take it home.
The floral displays, the corsages, the girls' bouquets, the men's flowers -- it was all just exquisite. So beautifully done. Lovely little details like ribbon around the bouquets, held by pins; the tulip leaves hiding the "mechanics" of the gorgeous square-vased table decorations; she even made a gorgeous "tree" decor made from whimsical branches and orchids, which she attached individually by hand. Rebecca is honestly a flower genius, and her flowers were the most important part of the whole celebration. I could just gush forever.

Rebecca Shepherd is kind and pleasant to work with. We discussed the flowers, and looked at pictures online and in books. In the end, I had mixed feelings about the flowers at my wedding:
-The boutonnieres were perfect.
-My bouquet had many...
beautiful flowers, in just the loose arrangement I'd wanted, but some incongruous yellow ones that I snapped off before the ceremony. Once I did that, it was perfect.
-The centerpieces were in colors that I didn't like — too many colors, all over the spectrum, and some verging on pastel, where I wanted strong & simple colors — reds, whites, and purples.
-The chuppah was simple and beautiful.
In retrospect, I should have spent more time discussing my color scheme with her, and less time researching kinds of flowers. Like most people planning a wedding, I'd never ordered flowers on a grand scale before, and I didn't know where to start.
I do recommend Rebecca Shepherd, as she is knowledgeable, responsible, and sweet. But I would urge you to do a little more homework than I did — perhaps ask to see a sample centerpiece, explicitly agree on all flowers that will be used (or at least, agree that all flowers will be in the spirit of the ones you've discussed), so as to avoid last minute surprises.
