About a year or more ago I received an email from Alan about his upcoming wedding to the beautiful Christina Amado. They are from Miami but were planning on celebrating their BIG day in Orlando at the beautiful Omni Resort at Champions Gate. Because of the distance between us, we decided it would be best if we met onsite at the venue while they were there carefully selecting the perfect vendors to help facilitate their day. With the guidance of their fabulous wedding planner Elizabeth Stinson who herself is from Miami, we immediately began planning all important details. We made a very solid connection which is very important to me as a designer and as the owner. It is my goal first and foremost that each client feels completely comfortable with me and my staff. Building a level of trust is crucial.. and it always helps to be able to back all of that up with fabulous flowers!! If I do say so myself
Alan immediately explained his desire to have non traditional, fun designs. They were working with a very vibrant color palette and I was so excited to create something they both would LOVE. Mission accomplished!!! The day of the wedding, the RKD staff stayed onsite through the ceremony to transfer centerpieces from the Ceremony back to the Reception as we were double dutying the flowers!! (Great idea for those wanting to get full value of their florals) As we were moving everything from room to room, Alan came up to me in the middle of their portraits and gave me a big hug and thanked me for the gorgeous flowers. That was enough of a reward for me that makes my job all the worth while! Alot of work and hours goes into preparing, designing and setting up an event. Think of it like literally moving your house or apartment every weekend. But when you make someone that happy and you sit back and look at how all that hard work came together, you can not help but be happy. And that is the ultimate reward for me!
Congratulations Christina and Alan!!! Thank you SO much for allowing us to be a part of your day. We wish you all the best in your future together!!
