Frequently Asked Questions
Are you available on my wedding day?
We need to check our calendar. We hope we are available for you!!!
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely, we love to travel. Our studio is located in Sonora, Tuolumne County; yet we travel to Modesto, the Bay Area, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, Yosemite and Pinecrest area. We love get to know more people and see different sights. (HINT: We haven’t received an offer to do flowers in Hawaii yet. If we ever do, we’ll start packing the same day!)
If I send you photos as examples, can we start from there?
Yes, this helps us tremendously! We get the look and feel of your wedding. We usually get pretty creative from this point and can make suggestions too. A picture is “literally” worth a thousand words. Did you know some of us have fine art backgrounds? We can interpret, analyze and sometimes make creative suggestions on your wedding style.
Do you have rentals? If so, what type of rentals do you include? Arbors, vases, wood boxes, lanterns, chandeliers, fabric, candles?
Yes to the above list and more. We have many things we offer that are part of our floral service. We have the ability to construct items as well. (It pays to have a wonderful husband who loves to dabble in woodworking and ceramics. Shhh, don’t say a word to him!! He loves to grumble about his “honey-do” list)
Here’s a great example: one wedding wanted 25 wooden boxes filled with succulents. My husband made these beautiful redwood boxes 30” long and 6” wide to fit her long farm tables. They were beautiful! She gifted them to a few of her guests and they used them as window boxes for their yards in the Napa area.
Do you deliver, set-up and pick-up?
Yes, of course we do!! We prefer to deliver, set up and place our flowers. It comes with our service. If a pick up of the rental items are necessary, we do that as well. It is your special day, and even though you have every intention of helping out…. let’s be honest, you do not have time!
Family and friends want your attention. We know this. Let us do this work for you.
Do you coordinate time and set-up with all my vendors?
Yes. Just provide us a list of the coordinator, photographer, caterer, rental company or baker. We make the arrangements for delivery and set-up. We view this as our problem, not yours.
What happens if I change my style of flowers?
Everyone is scared of this; but to tell you the truth, most people do this. Too funny….. No problem. We’ve had brides change their look three weeks prior to their wedding. Our absolute deadline is two weeks before your wedding. That is when we reserve the flowers and your order is locked in with the growers. We can work with you.
I am on a budget, what is the least amount I can get away with, as far as bouquets, ceremony décor and reception décor?
Let us price out the look you want. Do not hold back. We send a very detailed itemized statement to all our couples. You can view the prices and either delete or add items. You may be genuinely surprised!
How do we retain your services?
Most important, we want you to like our floral work. If so, we need a deposit to reserve the date. The deposit will be applied to the balance of your wedding. The balance is due two weeks before your wedding along with all your final decisions. Easy peasy!
