I'm writing this review nine months after our daughter's wedding...a little late, but this review MUST be written! Our wedding planner, Michelle Kinne, owner of Blue Dahlia, set up four meetings with a few "preferred" wedding florists in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. At our initial meeting, we were impressed with all the owners--they listened attentively to our vision and discussed our budget. A few days later, they presented us with their "inspiration boards." It was at this time we realized there was NO competition. Robin Buop, the owner of Botanica, blew us away! The atmosphere she created for our woodland backyard was described as an "elegant garden wedding with upbeat urban accents." It was such a thorough, thoughtful and meticulously crafted vision board that it, honestly, made the other three boards appear to have been pulled together at the last minute! Working with Robin was a pure joy too. She and her talented Botanica crew transformed our backyard into a magical place. And, it was not easy--the consistent rain made her job much more difficult. Robin came, herself, to create the gorgeous arbors the day before (because she's so invested and cares about the finished product), as there was rain in the morning wedding day forecast. But the skies cleared, and our daughter and her new husband were married that evening under Robin's exquisite arbor. The bouquets, centerpieces, the King's table, escort card board, lanterns, the ivy-covered monogram for the garden shed--these are just a few of the stunning pieces they created. Please watch the seven minute wedding video to see Botanica's work: http://www.studio213films.com/new-blog/2016/5/26/maggie-and-stephan-wedding-film-oxford. We believe Robin Buop and Botanica to be the best in the business!
