Courtney & Steve
August 6th, 2016
Ahhhh! Courtney & Steve....we met these two at our Delta Location, early in the game. It was a great match and we all clicked right away. To say these two are a chill couple is an understatement. We didn't hear a single peep out of them till as close to a wedding as you can get. Courtney was a sweet as can be, just checking in and wondering if everything is all ready to go! No panic, no questions, no nothing. A florists dream, really.
They were working with one of our favourite decor peeps - Ashton from Bespoke, at one of our favourite venues - The Permanent, and a rad photographer - Sara Rogers (something about that bouquet photo, its probably our favourite to date) and a whole set of amazing vendors. Our set up and deliveries were the calmest I think they've ever been, and we're pretty calm to begin with. If this wedding was a spa experience, we left with an hour massage, a facial, mani and pedis and ready to take on the rest of the day. It was just what we needed.
It was our bouquet delivery to the girls that we'll remember. We knocked on the door to their apartment, to be greeted by her bridesmaids, all dressed in adorable matching silk PJs, and clearly having a great morning. Typically, we're in and out, not wanting to disturb the morning rituals, like little worker elves behind the scene almost never to be seen, except one of the bridesmaid's caught us before we left. Courtney had wanted to see us but she was just in the bathroom - it was an adorable sight to see. She was in full swing hair and makeup, clearly pre-occupied and couldn't leave to come see the flowers. She had gotten one of her bridesmaids to take a picture on their phone to show her. When we popped our heads in door, where she peeked through her hair, exclaimed she loved them so much she wanted to make sure she to say hi and thank us personally.
I'm not sure she knows- because its just clearly in her nature- but moments like that mean a great deal to us. At the end of the day you can put in all the time and effort but if your bride doesn't like it and your customers aren't happy, it means nothing. Her thoughtfulness for even that split second is what drives us, first and foremost.
So to Courtney & Steve...Congrats! We wish you all the best!
Ps. Their wedding was featured on realweddings.com...wahoo!
