Botanica International Design Studio Reviews from Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:
Marry Me Tampa Bay curates the below reviews from real couples whom we've personally interviewed. As Tampa Bay's most trusted wedding planning resource, these reviews are 100% accurate and aren't created by fake accounts.
We looked for someone who would listen to our wants and needs. I wanted someone to take my ideas and turn them into the bigger picture. I knew I wanted it to be grand, but not in your face. I knew I wanted greenery on the top of the tent, but not so much greenery that it took away from the beautiful centerpieces and floral chandelier. Botanica International Design Studio took our ideas and brought them to life.
My parents happened to be at a different resort, and there was a wedding there that Botanica was doing. My parents met Ian and instantly knew he would be a good fit for us. I am so happy we went with him. The wedding day truly wouldn't have been the same if it wasn’t for Botanica.
I really love flowers in general, and I wanted some components of our wedding to have more classic flowers, like the all-white florals we had for our ceremony. The ceremony was really important to us; we wanted it to feel both peaceful and romantic, so we had it overlooking the water and did all white/cream decor and flowers. For the reception and my bridesmaid bouquets, I wanted something a little bit more fun and cheerful, so I went with pops of peach, pink, and tropical greenery. We decided to include a good amount of tropical flowers in our décor because the location also had tropical foliage/palm trees, so we felt it fit the venue well We had a good amount of florals, so we donated some to local nursing homes/hospice after the wedding.
Botanica International Design Studio came highly recommended by my wedding planner. I told her a little bit of the vision I had in mind, and she suggested they would be a great fit.
Flowers were one of the most important aspects of creating our romantic/whimsical design, so we spent a lot of time choosing a florist. We wanted a large floral arch for the ceremony, so we looked at the previous work of some recommended florists and fell in love with Botanica International Design Studio. Botanica was amazing to work with. They created a personalized wedding board with all the different blooms they would use to bring our vision to life, and it was a dream.
Since florals were a very important element to us, we knew we wanted the best of the best when it came to a wedding florist, and we knew Botanica International Design and Decor was exactly that and more. We looked at several of their reviews and each one assured us they were the ones for the job. We also really loved that it’s a family-owned business that has been in the industry for 30+ years.
From the beginning, we loved what their entire process entailed and how each stage of the process was very detailed and nothing was overlooked. We also loved that we got to have several meetings along the way including a sample viewing with them a few weeks before the wedding in order to see all the designs before our big day. Throughout the years of planning, Botanica was always extremely responsive and always there whenever we had any questions or concerns. We were continuously told by several others that Botanica would exceed our expectations, and they truly did just that and more. We worked very closely with Zoe Gallina, and she made sure each design came out perfect and exactly how we had talked about.
We wanted someone with a great reputation, an amazing portfolio of innovative and creative design. I wanted a wedding that was unique to us and our style - not something you have seen over and over before.
I cannot say enough about Botanica and their vision and team! Zoe and Ian are truly a dynamic duo and had so many wonderful and unique ideas for our special day!
