I have used Griffins Floral Design for two different daughters' weddings and receptions, one very traditional at the Columbus Athenaeum and one in my back yard and the reception in a pole barn...literally. I trust the owner and chief designer very much! He will tell you if he thinks that something will not look good so if you get your feelings hurt easily, look for someone else who will do what you want even if it looks awful! Both of the events he helped me with were absolutely perfect! Russ has a high level of pride in his final product and that is why he offers suggestions that often the bride or the planner has not even thought about. I can only say great things about Griffins Floral Designs. I only wish I had more daughters who were getting married so I could contract with him again...he is THAT good and that makes ME as the MOB look even better! You won't regret it if you go with Griffins. He will make it an event that everyone is talking about for months...from the floral, to the lighting, to the specialty fabrics...Russ does it all.
