From Shelley, "What I do is a passion.  I love flowers. I love the special moments that I get to share with my brides and grooms when they see their flowers and for a moment, their breath is taken away. I love it when I have been given something special or a keepsake of some sort to put into or onto the bride's bouquet or groom's boutonniere. The amount of joy and sometimes tears that fill their eyes when they see their memento will forever hold a place in my heart where it is etched.  I know that weddings and special events are an experience.  From the beginning consultation to when we drop the flowers off, or even to when we pick up the last piece of glass,  we are a part of the experience.  It is my goal to contribute elation and inspiration into the process.  I am more than just the florist.  I am the other end of the text message giving you sneak peaks of your flowers when they are being made just days before your wedding!  I want my clients to see my heart and the special place each one of them have in it!
