Where do I begin. When I started wedding planning, I didn’t want to spend alot of money on our florals, thinking I would go with a local florist. As my ideas and vision for our “Winter Wonderland” wedding came together, I knew I needed more than just a local florist shop to help execute my vision. So I was given a couple references, one of which was Ruth Ridgeway Designs! I initially met with Ruth at Aria Banquet Facility (which was our venue), where we spoke about my vision and she gave me her input and some ideas of how we could make this come to life. I knew I was going to be in great hands and had great level of confidence in what she would bring to the table. I met and spoke with her one on one at all times. She was very straight forward when she gave me feedback as to her thoughts of detail and where my budget should be put to good use. Over the coming months, Ruth helped put together my vision for my cocktail hour, ceremony, reception, and lounge area by sending my photos and sketches. Aside from all that she did all my florals for the bridal party, myself, and some for the house the day of the wedding. To say our wedding was absolutely magical, is an understatement. Our guests were in awe, with the amount of detail and classiness! Nothing was too overdone or underdone. A perfect touch!
During the wedding planning, I even asked if she would help out with my shower (which was a much smaller scale event than a wedding), since I was doing a 50s housewife themed shower. She agreed! When my guests walked into my shower, they felt like they were actually in the 50s era. My decor was outstanding! From the placecard table, to the linens, center pieces, room accents, it was phenomenal!!!
I am so happy I went with Ruth and her team for both events, I would do it all over again if I could. If anyone is shopping around for a vendor that brings more than just florals to the table, Ruth Ridgeway Designs is the way to go!!!
