I have nothing but fantastic things to say about Mayuri Parikh. From the day I met her at the Bridal Expo at the Palisades Center Mall till my Wedding Day she was such a pleasure to work with. Her expertise and creativity as well as her organization all had me impressed to say the least. She starts with a few simple questions about your color palette, budget, wants and desires and works backwards to get you as close to your budget as possible. By the time you get to meet with her she already has an electronic file with your name and a slide show of flowers in your color palette. From there she takes her time to get your wish list down in writing.
Mayuri follows up with you through the process as you work together towards the Big Day. In my case she had to do twice the work since we had already written a final contract, picked out all the flowers and design of the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, mother of the bride corsage, sister of the groom corsage, the flowers for the ceremony, petals for the flower girls, flowers for the ring bearer to carry on the pillow etc… Unfortunately three weeks before the Wedding Day my location was completely destroyed by Hurricane Irene and I had to start over planning my wedding at a new venue. Mayuri was terrific and we sat down right away to make all the necessary changes. My round tables of 8 where now long oval tables of 12. The same centerpieces would have been lost on such a big table. So we worked feverishly to design a new centerpiece, which I might add was absolutely stunning. Also made changes to the flowers for the ceremony, Pew bows which she hand designed incorporating my ribbons used in my Chuppah and keeping my colors in mind to make the look complete.
The flowers she used where extremely great quality and was beautiful the entire day. I got so many complements on the arrangements, the bouquets and all the special touches she made for me from my guests. Even my photographer was impressed and he sees lots of flower arrangements. I could not have asked for a more personable florist. She is truly a gem and I could not have done it without her.
Thanks so much Mayuri!
