Owner Carol Ralles says her floral arrangements feature charm, individual style and elegance. She has trained with European and Asian designers and enjoys creating themes. She says, "I recently handled a wedding where the bride and groom were going to honeymoon in Paris, and they wanted Paris to be the theme of their wedding. I included a miniature Eiffel Tower in every table arrangement." Ralles' wedding arrangements typically start at $1,500, including centerpieces, bouquets and more.
