I wanted to sincerely thank you all for making the wedding flowers so magnificent. Everything looked so amazing and the comments from our guests were tremendous!
— Kathleen, Bride
THANK YOU so much for the absolutely breathtaking flowers at my reception. They exceeding all of my expectations. When I walked into the ballroom for the first time, my mouth fell wide open. I have gotten so many compliments regarding the decor. People have been saying that it should be in a magazine! Haha! Your work is unparalleled and I wish you all so much success in the future. Thank you for the decor of my dreams and the most beautiful reception room I have ever seen.
— Katie, Bride
I have to tell you how absolutely blown over we were by everything you did at our ceremony AND reception areas! Not that I ever had a moment of doubt of how beautiful it would be, but to see it all pulled together was absolutely breathtaking!! Thank you so much!!!! We really appreciate your hard work — you went above and beyond!
— Charlotte & Ron, Bride & Groom
The Botanica team does everything to perfection and beauty — leaving the pleasure and fun to the client. That evening I felt surrounded in beauty, originality, pleasure and fun. What a high!! Our wedding has been the most beautiful event I have ever attended….and guest upon guest said the same to us….not to mention that they had smiles on their faces and had loads of fun!
