Hi Melissa,
We just got home from out honeymoon; which was wonderful and a much needed after all the wedding excitement. Happy doesn’t even begin to describe how I thrilled I was with the flowers and decor – it was all so perfect.  So many people have been commenting that everything was so “Ilana and Brian”.  Thank you for everything – it was so wonderful to work with you!  I think you sent me a link to write a review on wedding wire, which I am certainly more than happy to do as soon I get settled in 🙂  I will miss talking with you!  It is sad when the wedding is over, but I suppose it will be nice to have some free time again 😉 .
Thank you again times a million for making my wedding so beautiful!
Best always,
Ilana & Brian

 Hi Melissa,
Just had to let you know that we are still savoring the beauty and spirit of last weekend.
The flowers at the Water Works were perfectly suited to the sunny spring evening that it was and looked just as perky on Sunday when arranged slightly differently as centerpieces at the Union League.
As for the wedding, as predicted, the cut floral overlays were romantic and stunning.  And the “fluffy” floral arrangements were gorgeous accented with the mercury glass.  Ilana loved it all too!  I’m also so glad that the silver lanterns were added as the wedding party was introduced coming down the staircase and made for a great focal point with the pedestal floral arrangements at the base.

All in all, everything was beautiful, Melissa.  And we thank you for your part in making it such a memorable occasion.

Warm regards,
Maureen McCabe

On my recent 50th birthday trip to the Yucatan of Mexico, I was inspired by so many things. The colors and beauty of the area are simply delicious. The range of flora and fauna is lush with color and texture. I visited markets, beaches, old colonial churches. It was all great eye candy.

Melissa, the tables looked like everything I would have wished.  Our guests admired and appreciated them all night.  We loved it.

I am very excited to be planning a 40th birthday celebration in Paris. The sights, sounds and smells of that city are breathtaking.
