Emily's Bride Diaries
"As a bride I had 3 major wishes for my dream wedding which were flowers, photography and good food. I ended up with all 3!---and two (Photography and Flowers) were beyond what I could have hoped for going into my wedding day. It was a beautiful day and A Garden Party went above and beyond to make sure the decorations were every bit as stunning as our venue. My favorite parts of working with Dawn and Mary were 1.) How responsive they were during wedding planning and 2.) that I could easily collaborate with them on my vision. I knew that we had a similar aesthetic, so it was easy to give them a general direction then let them loose to plan the floral and candle elements of my wedding. I was not disappointed, the results were so much better than I could have imagined.
The day of the wedding, Mary went above any beyond with her floral bag of tricks. Our officiant had opted not to use the large podium provided by the venue as it seemed too executive, but she still needed something to rest her papers. We ended up finding a iPad stand, but it was a real eyesore under the ethereal arch of flowers that A Garden Party had created for us. But within minutes, Mary had the stand encased with leaves and flowers to compliment the arch and the eyesore was transformed into another floral standout!"
