  • Dara was so lovely to work with! She quickly understood my non-traditional view on flowers and was excited to work with me on a unique artistic concept for the flowers. She worked with both natural and paper flowers, and everything came out so beautifully. The flower arrangements were visually stunning and impressive, and super durable! My mom still has a couple of arrangements laid out three weeks after the wedding. My bouquet and the bridesmaids' bouquets were all made with paper flowers, and the boutonnieres were also made out of comic book pages. It was an extra special touch for the bridesmaids to be able to keep their bouquets as souvenirs. There was a tiny miscommunication about the throwing bouquet not being added to the contract (we missed it as well), but we worked it out and it was just a tiny hiccup during an otherwise seamless process. I would absolutely recommend Dara's creations to any bride who is looking for a truly artistic approach to their flowers.

    Mara, it was a pleasure to work with you and your family! It was so much fun to be able to have such a creative job! Best wishes, Dara
