(Pieter Bouterse Studio) did the floral design for my wedding in June 2013.  Their work far exceeded my expectations, so I highly, highly recommend them.  They are wonderful! When I first met with them,  I described what I wanted in very few words.  Then when I came back to see the sample, it was exactly what I wanted.  Even when I didn't know what I wanted, they did.  They are not snooty and are very affordable for the extraordinary work they do.  They worked with us and let us use our own vases and components, which some florists do not allow.  The flowers were by far the most talked about aspect of our wedding.  Thank you Pieter and Gwen!

Words cannot possibly describe how unbelievably beautiful you helped to make my wedding.

As I was walking outside on the patio, just prior to the beginning of the ceremony, my wedding planner, Brandi said that in her 10 years of wedding planning she had never seen a room look that beautiful.  So, as much as I tried not to look at the room until later, I couldn't help myself. The smell coming out of the closed doors was amazing. You exceeded my expectations, even though you understood my vision and made it a reality.

It was truly remarkable. I was so surprised to see Pieter at the end of the night! What matters the most to me, is that you treated my family and I, within the budget we gave you, as if we were the same people who would have come to you with an unlimited budget.

And, the flowers from my centerpieces are still alive, well, and smelling amazing. Again...thank you for everything and more.

Sincerely, Laura



Wow!  That’s really the only way we can describe our wedding.  You gave us an unforgettable day!  We appreciate, so much, all of the hard work and mostly the thoughtfulness you put into our wedding.   We felt so very special and everyone is still talking about it!  Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

I just wanted to personally thank you and congratulate you on an outstanding job producing the décor for Cris Carter’s Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction Party.  The décor elements that you fabricated were well executed and they worked seamlessly with our design directives to create an overall party atmosphere in the tent that was amazing.  We received rave reviews throughout the evening and collectively we created the chic, South Beach club vibe that Melanie so desired.  Your staff was professional and courteous, from start to finish; please extend our thanks to your entire crew.

Just a short note to thank you again for creating such an intimate and magical setting for Lindsey & Jared’s wedding.  Our family and friends have not stopped raving about every detail, it was amazing to see such a large space transformed to a feel like an intimate gathering.  Your staff was wonderful and you are true artists in your field.   I only hope to have more reasons in my lifetime to call on you.  Thank you again.

– Nanette & Ed, Lindsey & Jared



This note is long overdue as I can’t express enough how delightful it was to work with you in planning Brittany & Tim’s wedding.  You made all of Brittany’s dreams a reality, something that I didn’t think was possible with our budget.  The simply elegant environment you created at the club reflected our style and was appreciated by all of the guests.   The flowers were fabulous, the wedding arch was magnificent, and yes, I wish we owned those chandeliers!  We are grateful that you brought the beautiful wood bars and that we didn’t have to use a skirted table.  Thank you – and your team – for a picture perfect wedding! 

Best, Nancy



…I, personally, will miss working with you both.  The entire experience for me was so thrilling and made me so happy.  You are wonderful people – thank you, thank you!  I may have to stop by from time to time just to say hello and see your faces…and Bella, too!   One of the best by-products of these weddings was meeting the two of you.  I wish I had your talents – but, at least, I am fortunate enough to have your friendship. 

Much love, Cheryl



You are the icing on our cake, the petals on our flowers, and most importantly you brought calm to our wedding storm.  You are a talent that cannot be matched, and a kind wonderful soul.   I knew when we first met that you would bring my vision to the table, but never did I expect for you to be so hands on and run the show.   I had no worries that our wedding day would be perfection because of you!  Every inch of Hillbrook was beautiful, the flowers, our bouquets, everything…perfectly beautiful!  I cannot thank you enough for making our day perfect and a dream come true.  I hope to break bread and toast to the success of 7.22.11 sometime soon.  Forever grateful, always…we thank you! 

Much love, Lonny & Tony
