We hope you will plan to join us on February 24th to see how 20+ vendors can make sure your wedding is the best day of your life!

Gardenia Floral Design does only weddings and special events. By paying attention to what you want (and what you don’t!), using your pictures, ideas & inspirations, we design flowers unique to your wedding.

The compliment that we hear most often from our brides is, “It’s exactly what I wanted, only better!” – which is what we think every bride should remember about her wedding flowers. We consistently hear that we use more flowers & are more detail-oriented than other florists. So that’s our goal – to give you more flowers, more details & make your wedding more about you.

Let us help you plan frustration-free flowers, give you a detailed proposal & answer all of your questions about what you want for your wedding. The way we see it, we are here to help you understand your options & make the best decisions for your wedding.

“Let me get the headaches! Let me solve any problems that pop up!

I do what is called ‘day of’ coordinating. However, I spend hours ahead of time – emails, phone calls, personal visits. Not only with you, but also with all your vendors.

My over 25 years as a caterer/manager made me very detail oriented and with weddings, there is no ‘small’ detail!

I keep my price very competitive because I really love what I do and get a lot of satisfaction from my always-thrilled brides, grooms, & their families (check out Happy People on my website).”

No matter when you book me, my services include:

* Going over all vendor contracts (making any suggestions for things I see might not be right) and suggesting 2 -3 vendors in each area if needed,

* Contacting vendors before the day and going over the details just to make sure we are on the same page about times, expectations, etc., Meeting with vendors as needed

* Tying together all the details for each vendor so they interact seamlessly and creating a personalized master detail & timeline sheet for you and all vendors, distributing those sheets BEFORE your wedding day,

*Calling those guests who don’t RSVP – if you supply me the phone numbers!

* Rehearsal, pre-ceremony, ceremony, reception & post reception coordination – I’m at the site when the first vendor arrives and I stay until it is over (10 – 12 hours) – assisting vendors as needed, insuring contractual items are met, and taking care of you!

*Extensive emergency kit travels with me!

* Coordinating all the timing and activity of the reception – being there to make sure the cake knife is at the cake for cake cutting, Bride & Dad are ready for their dance, caterer is providing per contract, music is playing as requested, etc.,

* Hand delivering your vendor checks day of as needed,

* Collecting all the personals items such as gifts, extra favors and programs, articles of changing clothes, and anything needing attention without family having to worry about it,

* Minimum of one (1) meeting now and one (1) closer to wedding with unlimited emails and phone calls – expect a lot of those! I will meet with vendors as needed.

I am whom you ask etiquette questions of, rely on to listen to you, and vent to when needed! If I don’t know the answer, I do the legwork to find the answer. It is the Bride and Groom’s wedding, not mine, so I’m very careful to learn their wishes and dreams and help make them come true. * Additional services available

Are you looking for a planner who “gets” you, who understands your needs, your style, your personality and your budget concerns?

I know you’ve been looking for something different so you can capture exactly what you envision for your dream wedding. Yes, it’s about the details. Yes, it’s about delighting (and even wow-ing) your guests. Yes, it’s about celebrating your love for each other … and your family. And yes, it’s also about having fun in that process of creating too! What’s really incredible is that you can truly create the wedding you desire without a lot of the stress or headache that many couples experience, because you have help!
Imagine what it would be like to have the wedding of your dreams. How might that feel? What would that look like?

As you start getting ready, you’re surrounded by the people you love the most. You’re calm, cool and collected. You don’t have a care in the world…except that you are so excited and happy that TODAY is the day you marry the love of your life.
You’ve been planning for months leading up to this day, and it’s been so much fun! None of it has been a pain or stressful or time-consuming…actually it’s been a pleasure, no…an absolute JOY to plan your wedding. You’re so confident and happy in your wedding day because you know that everything is coming together flawlessly. And, it feels so fabulous knowing that your mom and closest friends are ALSO enjoying this day with you, instead of working tirelessly and missing out on the most splendid moments you experience in the quiet moments you’ll savor for a lifetime.
You have all the right vendors and a full team of amazing professionals behind you, working together to orchestrate the most extraordinary wedding…even beyond your wildest dreams. Because of all this, you are overcome with excitement and anticipation to see and experience the most spectacular event that is your wedding day!
You have only done the things that you loved to do and the things that you wanted to do leading up to today. Today is YOUR day…you are beautiful, relaxed, and the best part is that you can actually enjoy the wedding day you’ve wanted for so long with your most favorite person ever.
You do not have a to do list today. You only need to have the time of your life and experience that “cloud nine” feeling as you delight in the love that you both share.
