Our wedding coordinator recommended our florist, Floral Design by Reina, to us and we couldn't have been happier with her! Reina was incredibly generous with us and our budget, had amazing ideas, and ended up saving the day when things didn't work out as planned.
After we got engaged and started thinking about flowers, the only thing we knew we wanted for sure was pampas grass, and then we got some other ideas that we posted about here and here. And I knew for sure that I didn't want a big poofy bridal bouquet because I'm not really big on flowers to begin with. Reina was able to come up with some great ideas and flowers we had never heard of.
And then it was the night of our rehearsal dinner and our wedding coordinator, Beth, had a phone call for us from Reina. Poor Reina had to explain to us that due to the unusually cold weather she wasn't able to get the California poppies and blue cornflowers that we had wanted. But, she had already come up with a back-up plan which even involved altering some other blue flowers to individually look like the blue cornflowers.
To be honest, when we got the call and Reina explained what had happened, it was totally disappointing. And when the flowers arrived the next day, it was a little disappointing not to see the flowers we had pictured for our wedding. But in the end it totally didn't matter and I certainly was not thinking about our flowers while I was eating our delicious food or dancing my heart out on the dance floor!
