To a Ct. Wedding Florist: Melissa's Recommendation letter..

Melissa wrote:

We based our choice on recommendations, as well -- Saybrook Pt. Inn's, and our wedding planner highly recommended you. You also "got" our vision and how important the flowers were to me, personally, which made the entire process really enjoyable. I also appreciated how you were able to "tease out" what I really wanted, versus what I thought I wanted...(like... Read More my original bouquet idea...!), and you were great about showing me pictures and examples/samples, and explaining your recommendations. That also made the process a lot easier for me, since I hadn't planned a wedding before, and didn't exactly have a book of tear sheets...as you know! Please let us know if you'd like more, and we would also be happy to act as references/provide a recommendation.

Ct.Wedding Florists: Recommendation letter from the "Heart"

Dear Debra,

Where do I begin? I wanted to call you a thousand times and every time I picked up the phone I started to cry. So, that is why I decided to write you this note.

Thanks you so much for making my daughter's wedding the most incredible night of my life. You were the only "vendor" that I knew I had nothing to worry about. I knew you would give me everything I asked for...but you went above and beyond and exceeded my highest expectations. Every single thing that you did, the huppah, the centerpieces, the cake, the candelabra were like works of art. You absolutely took my breath away with each piece. You are truly an artist.

I love a favorite quote by Helen Keller, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched......they must be felt with the heart."
Well I saw your flowers and I touched them and the images of them will be in my heart every minute of every day for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me a lifetime of memories. I am forever grateful.

I would recommend you to any and all brides wholeheartedly.....

Sincerely and with lots of love,
(Mother of Bride)

Ct.Wedding Florists: Another wonderful Recommendation Letter!!!

As the mother of the bride,

I want to say how wonderful it was working with Debra. The entire process was easy and totally enjoyable. Debra listened so carefully, had so many good ideas that enhanced the vision that our daughter had for her wedding, had many photographs and examples to show us, never made us feel rushed or as if we couldn't make changes, never insisted on her own ideas but helped our daughter to realize her own.

Debra has a wealth of experience over many years, was completely reassuring that everything would be done exactly as we wanted and as it should be. And indeed it was!!! The bouquets were just beautiful, the table decorations perfect, the archway was gorgeous, and all the rest. Everything was classically simple and beautiful.

All the flowers lasted beautifully throughout a warm afternoon and the evening, and on into the next days as well. Everything to be worn was delivered and preserved perfectly, and labeled clearly. The set-up at the yacht club was perfect. And her prices were very reasonable. Debra was a pleasure to work with and the flowers were gorgeous. There was not a single thing we could have wished to have been done differently.

We're so appreciative of all she did, in her own so very warm and easy and reassuringly peaceful way, and we couldn't recommend her more highly.

Ellen (mother of the bride)

To a Ct. Wedding Florist: Water's Edge "Thank you".....

Dear Debra,
I do not stand along on the following comments...I am truly writing on behalf of each and ever guest that attended the 50th Anniversary party for my in-laws at "Water's Edge Inn" not to mention the odd hotel employee or hotel guest just "peeking" into the room for a "look and see."

HOW CAN WE EVER THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR THE VISUAL FEAST YOU BESTOWED UPON US? You outdid yourselves. The room came alive with elegance and sophistication..to perfection!

Ours was no easy task, communicating 3,000 miles across the Atlantic, hoping to get "the look" just right. I was skeptical that any part of this party would be pulled off, let along to the high degree of standard that I had set for my goals. I knew, if anything, that all of our 100 guests would be treated to sights and smells that would ruin the senses for anything else, forever. Everyone is still talking about "THE FLOWERS" from West Hartford,Ct. to Beverly Hills, California, to Jerusalem, Israel!!

Thank you for heling to make this day so special for all of us. You were a pleasure to work with and I applaud you for interpreting my hodgepodge desires into objects of beauty. Everything exceeded my wildest expectations.
I am gratefully yours,
London, England

Ct. Wedding Florists:Beachy Chic

Inspiration boards have become the rage... over the last 20 years I have built libraries of photos to inspire brides imagination.....Wouldn't that be considered an "INSPIRATION LIBRARY?"
Finding new and exciting ways to create magic within this theme, "Beachy Chic" is great fun.....I love the challenge!!!
