While planning your own wedding, you'll probably come across vendors that you just click with right from the start. I can honestly say that when Erin and Jim sat down with me for their first consultation it felt like I was sitting down with old friends. We spoke about things beyond flowers like sports and family. They were so much fun to work with and their spirit was refreshing!
Erin and Jim celebrated their wedding day at the Adler Planetarium with a huge group of friends and family. It was a party right from the start (see photos below). Even though Erin wouldn't describe herself as the princess type, she wanted to step into character on the day of her wedding. She found the perfect ballgown and decided on pink flowers and crystals to flow throughout the reception. Thanks to Steve Koo for the stunning photos!
It turned out to be a beautiful day and the happy couple had wonderful things to say about it. Here's a little note I wanted to share with you:
"Choosing Scarlet Petal was hands down one of the best decisions my husband and I made when planning our wedding this year. Esther is awesome. She is polite, she is professional, and she gets the job done! She was so attentive and listened to every question and concern I had regarding our wedding flowers and the final product was more lovely than we could have ever imagined.
I loved a lot of things about our wedding, but I have to say that the flowers were probably my fave. The best part about it? I only spoke with Esther 3 or 4 times - our initial meeting, the contract signing (totally reasonable pricing), our preview (which was amazing!), and then one last 5 minute convo to firm up some final details. I didn't have to explain things or worry about whether she understood my vision - she just came through like a champ. I'll admit, I can be a bit a little Type A - I can be indecisive and a slight control freak at times, but I didn't worry about the flowers one bit....and THAT is something I wish I could say about every aspect of wedding planning. :)
When I walked into our reception at the Adler I practically passed out when I saw how beautiful the decor looked. Truthfully, I may have scared the catering people who were in the room since I gasped (and cursed- see also: classy) because I was so excited. Everyone at the reception was talking about how gorgeous the flowers were and my girlfriend's bouquet is still fabulous even though it's been several days since the wedding. I plan on yelping about all of our vendors when I get around to it since I think it is very helpful for prospective brides, but I definitely had to take special time to write this one before leaving for my honeymoon because I am that happy about my experience. Do yourself a solid, book Scarlet Petal for your next event!"
