KIND WORDS

One of the best decisions I made was hiring Botanica for my Wedding. I shopped around and received quotes from six different vendors. I was very specific with my budget and what I wanted in regards to floral and design, but was open to the designer’s interpretation. They came back with a very detailed and well thought out proposal. Their proposal really impressed me because I am not super familiar with flower names. They actually had the flower’s name with a photo on their proposal, making it a lot easier to visualize what the arrangements would look like. They invited me to their studio for a mock table setup, where they showed what one of my reception tables would look like. Zoe from Botanica was so accommodating! She and her team were willing to alter their design based on my preferences. At our Wedding, I was completely blown away. Their florals and décor were so stunning beautiful, my jaw literally dropped when I walked into the room. Everything they provided; bouquets, table décor & ceremony arrangements well surpassed my expectations. They were truly amazing and unforgettable. I highly recommend Botanica and would hire them again in a heartbeat.

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.
