I"t was by far the most polished and aesthetically pleasing. They were very professional and transparent throughout the process

Where do I start? I came to Uche with a very specific vision for the florals for my May wedding. I can be particular about details, and this was an aspect of the wedding that I was really concerned about. I had an initial conversation with Uche and she put together a proposal based on our discussion with all of my asks. As someone who's very into branding and presentation, let me say that I appreciate the effort that Uche puts in her proposals. I had received some initial proposals from other florists, and Uche's was by far the most polished and aesthetically pleasing. Uche worked with me over the following months to refine every detail and address all of my questions and concerns. She was very professional and transparent throughout the process. Fast forward to the wedding day and WOW! Uche executed the vision to a T plus more. The centerpieces, bouquets, and floral arch were a dream! I still swoon looking at the pictures. Even my most hard to please relatives were raving over her work. I can't thank the DBO team enough for making my wedding so beautiful. You guys are the best!
