Kimberly and her team did an amazing job with our wedding! The floral and decor were spectacular and really brought our vision to life. Day of coordination with Kimberly's team was also one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning. The day went exactly as planned and neither me nor my husband had to worry about anything. I highly recommend the team!
