Lauren wrote— We hired Oliver for the photography and Marita to do the flowers for our wedding, and let me tell you, this duo is quite a team! They bent over backwards to accommodate our wants and needs, helping to customize services to make our day just perfect.
I was completely clueless about flowers and Marita was my saving grace. She patiently walked me through the process of figuring out what I wanted, explaining what was available in season, and helping me find options that were both creative and cost saving. She really knows her stuff – several times she graciously guided me toward sensibility when my imagination started to go off in a direction that would be too expensive or a mismatch for the venue. But she patiently listened to all my wild ideas, and in the end, was able to incorporate many of my favorite flowers into a truly unique floral theme. The result was absolutely stunning – I wanted something creative and distinct, and never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what Marita came up with. Her table arrangements were works of art – gorgeous and lively and the perfect balance of elegant and playful. Everyone loved them! I will never forget the flowers at my wedding. I highly, highly recommend Marita.
I was the opposite with photography – I knew exactly what I wanted. Oliver was quickly able to meet my needs with a team of photographers to capture every moment of our event. He even brought on an extra photographer at the last minute to take posed shots of guests in the “photo booth” we wanted to set up. The photographers were not intrusive at all, and aside from posed photos, I hardly realized they were there. After the wedding, the photos were available to view very quickly, and it was easy to send the link of the online gallery to family and friends. We spent hours pouring over the hundreds of photos from the day–Oliver’s work is just spectacular. I feel like I am reliving my wedding day each time I flip through just a few photos. And when it came time to select prints, the online system was so easy to use. To top it all off, Oliver is wonderfully charismatic, and was such a delight to have around on our wedding day. He is an outstanding wedding photographer.
