but thanks to Carolyn‘s expertise the end result was a dream wedding. ⁣
Thanks Carolyn.

Hi Carolyn
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the wonderful job, you and your team, did on the styling of my wedding. It was honestly everything I had imagined and more. We had so many wonderful comments and gasps at the sheer beauty of your work. The styling of the reception was one of the most important elements of the day, to me – and everything I had envisioned really came to life the moment we walked in. So again, thank you so much for all your help, guidance and of course, supreme execution of styling. You were a pleasure to work with and I cannot wait to highly recommend A Flamingo Surprise to anybody I know getting married.

Thanks so much

Hi Carolyn,
Hope you are well Apologies for the delay in sending this email, have gotten caught up at work.

We just wanted to thank you for the beautiful decorating you did at our wedding. Everything far exceeded our expectations and it was lovely you allowed us to do our own touches whilst you were trying to setup. Patty mentioned you even returned on the Saturday to double check on everything which is a true testament to your professionalism. When we first met you, we had already been let down by two decorators as our wedding was not big enough, but you were more interested in ensuring our day was special and treated us with the same respect and professionalism you do of those with larger guest numbers. You have a wonderful eye for detail and everything was immaculate. Everything you promised you delivered on.

Thank you again for your hard work and your genuinely kind nature.
