My daughter's wedding was last spring. During the past several months friends have asked me for information about our flowers since they now have events to plan. We enjoyed working with Richard and Brandt at Richard Remard Event Design from the first meeting to the beautiful end results. My daughter lives out of state and we thought it would be a bit difficult but they were very accommodating for meetings and seemed to always find a way to fit us into their schedule. At our first meeting we were asked what we thought our vision was for the wedding and my daughter had a few ideas. We discussed flowers and designs, Richard caught on immediately and gave us a few great suggestions and arrangement ideas. We told him our budget, the things we did not want to do and he came up with innovative suggestions that were very beautiful and unique. We left after the first meeting thinking "he nailed it" and knew then we had found our florist. Over the next several months we had a couple of meetings and several phone calls. We changed a few things just about 2 months before the wedding and it was not an issue for the guys. Our placecard table was so outstanding a friend of my daughter asked if her florist in another state could use the same idea. My friends still talk about the beautiful flowers and different ideas Richard and Brandt achieved. We loved the entire experience and highly recommend them.

I got married this past September and, after meeting with many florists, my mother and I hit florist-heaven! When we left Richard's studio, we knew - without any doubt - that we'd found the florist who could enhance the ambiance and create the atmosphere we wanted for my wedding. Richard and his team LISTENED to what I wanted - and then LISTENED to what my mother wanted (which weren't exactly the same thing), he asked though-provoking questions and MOST IMPORTANTLY: He HEARD OUR BUDGET. You could see the "wheels turning" in his head as he ran about pulling ideas and checking prices BEFORE presenting them to us. This was HUGE. He did not show me anything I couldn't afford, nor anything I wouldn't love. In fact, when all was said and done, my wedding was EXQUISITE. The room was stunning, my flowers beautiful, lively, aromatic and WE CAME IN UNDER BUDGET!!!!!!!! That rarely happens. But, because Richard and his team LISTENED to what I said and presented options that met our requirements - pushing the envelope if necessary - my guests were blown away but my pocket-book was not. I would recommend Richard to anyone hostsing an event of mid- to large caliber, regardless of the budget. He will listen and present honest, thoughtful design ideas. They are the best!
Richard Remiard exceeded my expectations in every way. Each person we worked with was beyond wonderful and only added to the excitement of the wedding planning experience. I found the team at Richard Remiard to be extremely patient, professional, and exceptionally creative. Richard Remiard's team took the time to listen to my vision and made it a reality. Their outstanding collection of vases and candle holders is spectacular. This combined with the inspired artists at Richard Remiard simplifies the planning process – irrespective of whether you have a detailed concept for your event or no idea where to begin. I was made to feel a top priority at all times and believe that this is the standard of service provided at Richard Remiard. I can’t thank Taylor and Brandt enough for putting together the most exquisite arrangements for my special day. I am still overwhelmed by how seamlessly everything came together, your flawless work and the stunning end result. Thank you for all of your hard work and for helping to make such an important day perfection down to the last rose peddle.
