t said they were the most spectacular they have ever seen at a wedding!). We had initial meetings with several florists and Grace stood out from the start--incredibly kind, great listener, creative ideas, and very thoughtful. She created specific elements of the wedding based on us and our families. For example, instead of just making boutonnieres and corsages for the family assuming the same theme as the wedding party, she ask about each person, our relationship with them, and what they might like--this was such a personal touch and meant a lot to us. Grace worked incredibly well with all of our other vendors, communicated clearly, offered a floral trial in her studio so we could see things in person, and even helped us remember things we didn't think of (like a card box that we were able to borrow from her for a very minimal cost!). Grace is incredibly gifted in her art and incredibly kind. She took great care in each element of our wedding, big and small, and it was truly a pleasure to work with her and get to know her. We cannot say enough wonderful things about her and the Vale of Enna team!

I am not sure how Corrin does it, but I was having a hard time articulating what I wanted, and ...

The vision board was no comparison to the actual day. Everything was absolutely stunning, I could not have even imagined how beautiful it all looked. My advice- let Corrin do her magic because I could never have dreamed it would look so beautiful.
If you have not booked your florist, you absolutely will not regret choosing Vale of Enna!!!

an hour going through every piece of my vision and requests, and then sent over the most detailed proposal outlining every single small piece of the floral set up she planned to do. It made my choice so easy!
With a long engagement (2 years) I changed my mind quite a bit from beginning to end about what I wanted the aesthetic of my wedding to be. Grace was so, so patient and kind and remained excited and full of ideas throughout the whole process. She helped problem solve and rework things to stay within my budget. She did both a trial table meeting and attended the final walk through, and I felt like I didn't have to worry about a thing the day of! Everything from the bouquets, to the ferns we placed outside, to the candles set up in the venue looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL, and was just as I had hoped it would look. I almost cried when I walked into the reception room - it looked that amazing.

At our first meeting at Vale of Enna, my worries were immediately erased, Grace truly knows what she is talking about and takes comprehensive notes on all of your floral dreams. After receiving our detailed proposal, I knew Grace was going to be able to turn my vision in the most beautiful reality. The planning meeting a month or so before the wedding was also so helpful – Grace walked us through all the details and even showed us our two centerpieces. It was so nice leaving the meeting to have complete peace of mind for floral on the day.
The flowers on our wedding day were absolutely stunning with the perfect shades of red, burgundy, creams, peachy orange, and of course plenty of greenery. She also included 1000’s of candles in rustic gold votives which created the perfect intimate feel I was looking for. When I walked into the venue I was completely blown away. It was even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.
Not only is Grace beyond brilliant when it comes to your wedding look and floral she is also one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever met!
