I know that a full five-star rating in every category may raise eyebrows, but the sincerity of the situation is one where my wife and I can't express our appreciation enough for Sweet Talk and Rinny's care and energy with which she handled the ...
flowers for our wedding.
While I'll admit, as a perhaps stereotypical groom - though having worked in the floral business before - not initially having the floral design of our wedding at the top of my list of concerns, after Rinny took the time to make a personal visit with us to the venue and started describing her vision based upon our input and early ideas, it became clear the floral design would be a powerful and nuanced part of the "character" of our wedding and the "vibe" with which we wanted to welcome our guests and family. I am now at place where the look, variety, and color combinations of the flowers, garland, and bouquets are a distinct and predominant memory of my wedding.
First and foremost, Rinny was genuinely interested and excited to be part of our event, clearly exhibiting an enjoyment and passion for her craft. While some vendors have a sort of boiler plate kindness, Rinny not only communicated with us in a personable way and listened carefully to our ideas, but she was clearly invested in the possibilities of what we could achieve with the visuals of our venue, offering multiple ideas of distinct vision and "eye." Importantly for me, it was all pressure free, as Rinny was flexible and motivated to get the details, composition, and tone right.
This was crucial considering both the venue and the size of our wedding. Having only 35 guests and a ceremony and reception in a highly intimate speakeasy-style space, with a small outdoor patio, the floral design was front-and-center for our family and guests. The pales, pastels, blues, violets, and whites still burst in my memory. Thank you Rinny; perhaps most importantly, our guests still comment about the flowers and have Sweet Talk at the top of their lists.
