Renée & Michael
Wedding date: January 27, 2013
Venue: Swedenborgian in San Francisco
Photographer: Summer McCorkle
When Renée contacted me and asked if I would ship a woodland bouquet, along with corsages and boutonniers to San Francisco, it took me a while to agree to make and ship the bouquet overnight: so much could go wrong: from dealing with icy roads and delayed flights to rough hands handling the package or what if the package got lost? I am very glad that I chose to go ahead. My husband did a fabulous job packaging it all and everything arrived intact. As you can read below, Renée was thrilled.
"We looked into having flowers done locally and were not seeing anything up to my exacting standards, having lent a hand to a few friend's wedding myself. After seeing Françoise's samples on her website, even though it was hundreds of miles away, I knew she would be the only fit for our ceremony. Through the months of preparation she was extremely easy to communicate with, and understood perfectly what ideas I had in mind for the big day. As it turns out, having a bouquet and an assortment of flowers ready to travel means quick packing and shipping, and for this reason alone Françoise would earn five stars. Everything was shipped so solidly, in a package that was virtually bulletproof, exhibiting a fastidiousness and attention to detail that would make an art handler or preparator feel like they were dealing with the Dead Sea Scrolls. Clearly, this is no second rate operation, and were it not for a simple matter of distance I would recommend Françoise not only to everyone I know, but for every possible occasion that would merit a floral arrangement from simple corsage to extravagant, near avant garde bouquets. And what a selection of flowers, too! I can only imagine what her garden must look like because I know the breadth of materials could not have come entirely from a commercial flower market. Truly, seriously, unbeatably lovely."
