“blown away

“Rusty made our day so special. Throughout the planning process, I had 100% confidence in him & the execution of our vision. On the big day, I was blown away by the attention to detail & sweet extras. He went so far beyond what we had hoped & I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. Truly amazing!” - Anna and Ike

“thrilled

"Rusty is exactly the kind of person we wanted to work with. He's friendly, professional, creative and a lot of fun. At the initial consultation he asked great questions, helped us figure out what we wanted and took time to get to know us. When we arrived for the wedding, we were completely thrilled. Everything was original, classy and beautiful... even better than we expected. Rusty stayed until the ceremony started to make sure everything was perfect. He even rushed out at the last second to make bouquets for our nieces, who we forgot to request flowers for. He was careful to work within our budget and has very reasonable pricing. We highly recommend him." - Brad and John
