What is your favorite fun thing to do locally? Weddings. We love our job.

Do you have secret vice or indulgence? What is it? The boxes of chocolate here at our shop.

Do you have any hidden talents? Our head designer is also a wedding DJ. Brides love this!

If you weren’t in the business that you are in now, what other business/profession would you have liked to have done? Honestly, if I wasn’t a floral designer, I would be a full-time wedding DJ.


If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element(s) would be most important to you? Flowers and Music. Sometimes brides tend to cut corners here to spend more on the venue and food. The flowers will make any venue look beautiful and the music will set the mood.


What advice would you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Pick your venue first and don’t cut corners when it comes to floral décor.


Anything else you’d like to share with Real Weddings Magazine’s brides? We have been doing weddings for over 25 years and are very familiar with all the local venues.
