It was such an amazing experience working with Mellisa, she is such a lovely person and I am filled with gratitude towards her for trusting me to provide the beautiful flowers for her wedding day. I have a strong Chinese accent, and I’m always a little nervous about meeting clients for the first time because it’s hard to express how I stand out from all the other New York City wedding florists. Melissa put me at ease immediately, she was so friendly and I felt as though we had already known each other. With great efficiency she familiarized me with the venue, showing me the ballroom, the cocktail area and where the ceremony would take place.
Melissa let me know that she wanted a bright and bold color theme and also wanted to include an accent of cute little succulents in her table arrangements. This is the perfect floral season for lush, rich and vivid colors so I created a beautiful sample arrangement and sent her a picture. She loved it immediately! She admitted that she had been nervous that the arrangement might not live up to her expectations but that she turned out to be so happy with the results. I told her that I had been nervous too but that it made me relax when I saw the big smile on her face!
Another great memory I have is about how I was able to come through for her on a difficult request. Melissa told me that she adores peonies and dreamed of having a few stems included in her bridal bouquet. She was willing to pay extra if I could make it happen. I told her not to worry about the cost, the bridal bouquet is so important and I want to make sure her wedding day is perfect so I will do my absolute best to find her some peonies. This was a tough assignment as peony season is completely over by the end of August! My suppliers told me not to bother trying, they just won’t be available. I felt so terrible because I didn’t want to disappoint the bride. 4 days before the wedding, I took the time to visit shop after shop in the New York City flower market until I found the last few bunches of pink peonies in town! What a positive sign for such a happy occasion.
Mellisa posted a bunch of positive reviews as below for me online which made me feel so happy and proud. I really put my heart into my work and I love knowing that I am appreciated.
‘ Thanks to Annie, our wedding, and especially the chuppah, had the most beautiful flowers. We are still waiting on our official photos, but I wanted to leave her a positive review as soon as possible. Annie went out of her way to meet with me ahead of time to discuss our color palette and even made me a sample arrangement to keep! We were also wowed by the flower wall, which she specially customized to fit with our color scheme. I want to thank her for providing such terrific service at an unbeatable price.’
