Our reception tent was breathtaking! When I first saw it I wanted to cry. Then I never wanted to leave...I could look at it forever. We received so many compliments on the arrangements - at the end of the night, they were ALL gone - everyone had claimed them, faster then we could even pass them out.
We orignially went to Kathleen with some ideas and then she ran with it. I had printed some samples and taken them to her but our end result was better than we could have ever hoped for. She helped us to stay within our budget but at the same time worked hard to get us all the flowers and colors that we wanted. We had 3 different types of tables and wanted different arrangements for each style tables. Kathleen was open to the idea and being creative with us. It was a job that many people wouldn't have taken because of all our requests and the need to travel to another island.
We got married on Maui and live in Honolulu. We didn't want to hire someone on Maui because it would have been too difficult to work them them long distance. I don't know what we would have done if she wasn't willing to travel and help us fly the flowers over and reach out to vendors on maui for us.
We were hesitant when she suggested putting vegetables on the tables as part of the centerpieces but they turned out amazing, not to mention a conversation piece for our guests. It was perfect and unique! I learned to trust the florist since that is her expertise and they totally know what they are doing.
We highly highly recommend Stanley Ito Florist and Kathleen. She was so open to working with us and our ideas. We even had last minute requests like the day before the wedding and she was still able to deliver.
If I could publish our flowers I totally would - they speak for themselves.
Thank you Kahtleen for making our wedding day pefect!
