"We were so happy with how our wedding flowers turned out! We worked with Laurie and she was so helpful throughout the entire process. We were a little indecisive and she was very patient and provided us suggestions and options to stay within our budget which we really appreciated. We were able to see a sample of our centerpieces before the wedding day which was great to help us visualize how everything would look and led to us making a few tweaks that we are so glad we made! I would highly recommend working with Gidas they are professional, responsive, flexible and do beautiful work!." - Danielle, August 2023
