Location: Gordon Lodge, Door county Wisconsin
Guests: 160 people
Explain your involvement in selecting florals. Were you knowledgeable about your selections, or did you rely on suggestions from Tiffany?
Flowers were very important to us, we love having live flowers and plants in our home and knew it would be a big part our wedding since we decided to have very clean table settings and a simple outdoor ceremony. We were certain that we wanted white flowers with green and grey accents. Having dahlias was very important to me, because they are my favorite flower; Tiffany said they are not in season, but its spring somewhere in the world and she would get them for us and certainly came through! We relied on Tiffany to put our color and flower choices together- what we got was exceed my wildest expectations. Seeing the venue before the wedding with all the flowers and table set was an unbelievable and emotional experience!
What was it about your florals that you remember the most from your wedding?
I believe the most last memory is the fights at each table for who would take the centerpieces home. To see them the next day on peoples luggage carts going back to Chicago or Indiana, and the follow up texts, and social media posts once guests got home with our flowers made us realize our friends and families enjoyed the flowers as much as we did. We stayed at the venue for 7 days after the wedding and were able to enjoy them in our resort suite as well as bringing them home and having the flowers all over the house. Getting to look at them everyday for weeks afterwards was a way to keep the wedding vibes alive.
How would you sum up your overall experience with Tiffany / OD? Something you would tell your friends, or someone that may be considering working with Tiffany?
Above and beyond. We have purchased flowers from Oliver Dogwood for gifts and events several times over the years; but the personal service we had for our wedding was phenomenal. We have referred several friends to Tiffany. One wedding was at the Chicago Cultural Center and although the entire experience was different from our wedding- the flowers were again center stage and amazingly beautiful. My co-worker is getting married in June 2017 and will be using Oliver Dogwood based on my and another friends referral.
