I came into Showcase Floral with a set appointment with Karen, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted, as far as types of flowers or exactly what arrangements I needed, but I did have a vision. As I began sharing my vision, my inspiration photographs and the general feel of what I was wanting Karen ‘got me’. She was coming up with amazing ideas on the spot, it felt like more of a collaboration project than an interview with a potential vendor. Her creative ability is awe inspiring, her business acumen and follow up was that of a true professional.
Days leading up to my wedding I was in constant communication with her via text; pictures of arrangements in progress and any potential changes that I saw fit. It was so exciting to hear that ‘ding’ and know that it was Karen sending me a photo. In all of the last minute stress that comes with planning your own wedding, sometimes a girl just needs to see something pretty, I loved it!
Karen accommodated a few last-minute changes but really, there was nothing big to change- she had thought of everything in advance. It was as if she went into my brain and and knew exactly what I wanted. The arrangements were grander than I anticipated; happy surprises everywhere I looked. She personally delivered all of the florals the day of the wedding and was back the very next morning to pick up the various vessels used. (Pro Tip- have your own vases or bowls ready to go, you do not want to have to throw the flowers away, they are too beautiful)
This is not the florist for you if you want a show room and sample pieces; this is the florist for someone who wants the type of customization that working with a wholesaler grants you. If I tried to write down all of the compliments that I received from my arrangements I would surely max the word count for this post; people were freaking out. Everything was GORGEOUS.
