The "wow factor" of your wedding/reception that everyone talked about: The florals by Pine Hills Floral Design were more than I could have hoped for. Rachel transformed the handmade wooden cross into a masterful work of art with her floral design. She incorporated blush peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, and lush greenery throughout the cross, bridal bouquets, and centerpieces. It really made everything feel romantic and classic.
