"Candi is a true artist. She is extremely knowledgeable about all that goes into making an event beautiful. I don't know anything about flowers, and she knew exactly what I wanted from the terrible deion that I gave her! She has fabulous and creative ideas, and our guests still comment on how beautiful the flowers and decorations were at our wedding.
Candi is also great to work with. She makes you feel comfortable, and she is so easy to work with. I didn't worry about anything at all. When she arrived with the bouquets the day of our wedding, I was speechless at how beautiful they were! She absolutely exceeded every expectation that I had. Everything was so perfect! I would HIGHLY recommend Candi for your wedding or any other kind of event. You won't regret it!"

"I cannot say enough about Candi... I had an idea of what I wanted when we first spoke, but if you could have shown me what the final product was that day, I wouldn't have believed it could be so beautiful. Candi took my idea- that could've been too casual and come out terrible- and made the tablescapes chic and elegant- the room was STUNNING. I cried when I saw it- I was literally more worked up about how beautiful the room was then my dress. The flowers were just as beautiful- all the bridesmaids loved their bouquets and I couldn't have been happier with mine!
I opted for Candi's "Design Coordination" level of service and had custom designed linens made. Her mom is the seamstress and did an amazing job making all the linens- I am excited I will have them for the rest of my life!!!! Both Candi and her mom have an amazing ability to understand what you want and to elevate it. I am sure that if you aren't totally sure what you want they would be able to work with you and come up with a beautiful room. They are amazing partners and I wish every bride could be as lucky as I was to work with them. I literally cannot say enough good things about them. Your wedding will be beautiful and fun to design with Candi!"

"Candi and her team helped make our floral dreams a reality. We planned some of our wedding from PA so it was important to me that we had vendors that could work with us over the phone and via email. Candi was extremely helpful. She listened to the vision I wanted for our wedding and made it happen! She even offered advice on what types of flowers we should have to bring our dream to life.
Our flowers were gorgeous! My bouquet was so gorgeous it was better than I could have ever imagined. Our centerpieces were perfect for our vendor and everyone complemented us on how gorgeous they were. I highly recommend Candi and her team if you are looking for a reliable vendor that will work with you and cares that you get exactly what you want on your special day."

"Hiring Candi was one of the best wedding decisions I made. I really did a lot of research on CT florists, and felt she put the most effort into realizing my vision even before I had officially hired her. Since I live in Boston, we spoke once over the phone and she sent me a proposal and examples of work she had done that she felt was close to what I was envisioning. Out of all the florists I spoke with I feel like she was the one who really just got the look I was going for.
She was very mindful of our budget--she didn't try to up-sell us on anything and worked to keep everything within our specified range. She was very patient with me when my bridal party number kept changing--and changing--and changing!
The day of our wedding: the flowers were just knock your socks off gorgeous. My bouquet, the centerpieces, the place card table display---everything was beautiful. She stayed perfectly faithful to my vision while adding in her own little touches that enhanced the overall effect. She's truly an artist. So easy and fun to work with, and she has a great relationship with our venue which only made everything even easier.
I honestly have no criticisms whatsoever. I'm just thrilled with the work she did."

"Candi's fab! We had some very unique requests for our wedding. We used found objects for our centerpieces, needed a personal flower for our dog, had certain needs that come with an out-of-state wedding, etc. Candi not only handled all of our needs -- she went above and beyond in every way!
We could not have been happier with her openness, creativity, and willingness to take allo four suggestions and run with them in ways we never could have imagined. In short: We couldn't have been any more pleased."

"Flowers were beautiful! I went with Candi's creations mostly based on the reviews on weddingreports.com and I was not disappointed. Candi was very attentive at taking what I wanted and making it come to fruition. She even called and emailed in the weeks just prior to the wedding to make sure where I was going to be, and was everything ok, had I changed my mind, etc. and she was the only wedding vendor of mine to do that, I was very impressed. Her communication on the day of was excellent.
My flowers were so beautiful, a lot of people thought they were the most beautiful flowers they had ever seen, a lot of people thought they were fake. I actually squealed when I saw them they were just perfect. Candi was also organized and attentive enough to include a bouquet charm that I had made on my flowers. I would definitely recommend Candi to anyone for wedding flowers."

"You can stop looking here! She's the best! My husband and I had a tiny wedding on the beach for our immediate family. For the rest of our friends and relatives, we had a Halloween Masquerade Reception in October. We looked everywhere for a florist who understood our vision, and was mostly met with strange looks. Finally we met Candi and we were thrilled because we couldn't have meet a more perfect florist. She not only loved our idea, but had a million ideas and supplies because she loved Halloween as well! She not only created the most imaginative, whimsical arrangements (pumpkins used as vases filled with beautiful fall folliage) she also decorated the whole entire mansion to look haunted, with skeletons, spiders, and even a spooky porch.
Towards the time of the reception, I went nuts and bought a TON of Halloween stuff for her to decorate with. In hindsight, I dumped so much extra work on her, but never once did she complain (not that I'm encouraging doing that to her!). She always remained fun, flexible, and always easy to work with. When all my costumed guests arrived, they were BLOWN AWAY by her work and still talk about it 'til this day. If I had went with anybody else, I think the outcome would have been very different.
I HIGHLY reccommend Candi because of her creativity, flexibility, friendliness, and price. Not too long after my wedding, she did the floral design for my friend's beautiful country-barn themed wedding and plannned the whole thing in one month! After seeing how amazing it came out (and my friend was on a tight budget), I was convinced that Candi was the best, because she can not only do themed events, but also more traditional events. She's the best!"

"We interviewed and met with several floral designers before deciding on Candi. The other florists paled in comparison. I had one designer that only had pictures of weddings that were done at least 10 years ago (no current work), another florist told me that peonies wouldn't be a problem (even though they were out of season), and another florist mysteriously had her pc crash and had NO pictures of her work to show me.
Candi was honest and willing to work with my budget and gave me lower cost options whenever possible. In the end, every detail was adhered to. I gasped when I first saw my bouquet and so did everyone else in the room. It poured the morning of my wedding and all I ever dreamed about was having an outdoor ceremony. I was crushed to think that it would not happen and thought plan B would have to go into affect... but Candi set up both indoor and outdoor ceremonies. In the end the rain stopped and I was able to have my outdoor ceremony like I dreamed of. She really went above and beyond that day."
