beautiful flowers for our wedding.
Joan did an amazing job for our wedding. When I saw my room, I could not believe how pretty it looked, it really looked like something I only saw in the bridal magazines. In addition to her skill and creativeness, Joan has a wonderful personality and was so pleasant to work with.
When my fiance and I started looking for a florist for our wedding on March 31st, we had a long list of vendors that was given to us by our venue, Arden Hills. We wanted to do most of our flowers on our own,since our flower budget was not very big, but I still wanted to have nice bouquets for me and my bridesmaids as well as an arrangement for the ceremony. My fiance took his assignment to find out florist very seriously and he has called and talked to every single florist off of the list. Finally, he decided that we should go with Joan, even though there was another florist who gave us a similar quote. When I asked him why, he said that he really liked her attitude and that he feels better giving business to her. I think that was one of the best decisions he made (other then proposing to me).
I explained Joan what I wanted for my bouquets and the arrangement, and we also got 2 boutonnieres and flower petals for the aisle and tables. She listened to everything I said, made notes of everything, and sent me a detailed quote that also contained everything we discussed. She did all this within a couple of hours of our first contact. I thought that was very professional, and nice of her.
The day before the wedding, my parents were getting ready to pick flowers to make the centerpieces for our tables, I got a call from Joan, asking about whether I wanted my centerpieces to have red accents. I was really confused and explained to her that we didn't pay for that, but she told me that was her gift to us, and that she is doing them all for free. I couldn't believe that anybody would do that for me. I was very grateful, but to be honest I was expecting that she will do just the most basic thing for the centerpieces since it was free. I couldn't not have been more wrong. On my wedding day, while I was getting ready, I sneaked into our reception room just to see how everything looks like, and Joan was there, with huge bags of petals, putting them everywhere. She was just running around, cheerful, excited, She even made us a heart made of petals on our gift table! And the centerpieces were just amazing. Some of them were elevated on stands, some were not, the whole design looked so elegant, classy and creative. On my bouquet, she even put a rhinestone thingy (I don't know what those are called) to match my jewelry.
Joan enjoys what she does so much, and that shows in her work, and makes all the difference. I will post pictures of the centerpieces and bouquets.
Thank you Joan, so much!!! You made our wedding day perfect!!!
AMAZING. I used Joan from beautiful by nature for my wedding on June 18th, 2011. The BEST florist a bride could ask for. (She even gave me great references for other wedding vendors.) I know nothing about flowers except that I wanted fuchsia gerber daisies Joan has a lot of experience and knows almost everyone in the wedding biz and I let her do her own thing I fully trusted her. She is one of those people you meet once and you feel like you've known her forever. and my instincts were right. She went over and beyond and for good price. If she had a new idea she would call and make sure it was alright and everyone loved my flowers!!! Center pieces were gorgeous with pink led lighting and all. I asked if she could be at my wedding location by 2 she said ill be there at 1. Love love love her and her work. PICK JOAN BEAUTIFUL BY NATURE and you will not be sorry =]
I attended a wedding serviced by Joan of Beautiful by Nature and was really disappointed...blown away by how much she under-delivered, actually!
She brought exactly what she was asked NOT to bring (red roses and calla lilies, for example) and neglected to provide things she WAS asked specifically to bring (flowers for bridesmaids' hair, black magic roses for sisters and moms, for example).
To top it off, after saying she'd be there the day of the wedding...guess what? She wasn't. She sent two women no one had ever met before.
The bride and groom's family and friends did all the centerpieces themselves...thank God! They were the only beautiful floral arrangements at the wedding.
