Exquisite wedding flowers
By rmg on 11/28/2011
My husband and I used Saipua for our September wedding and could not have been more pleased. From my first meeting with Sarah, I appreciated her creativity and professionalism. I spoke to many florists during the planning process, but would always go back to Saipua's website to admire their work - it's unlike anything other NYC florists have to offer. Sarah and her wonderful team were great to communicate with, and were always open to questions, ideas, suggestions, and adjustments. They worked within our budget and created the most incredible bridal flowers, arrangements, chuppah, and centerpieces to complement the venue and our taste. Marbled roses, olive branches, dinner plate dahlias - Sarah knows her flowers and selects the most incredible ones for your event. We, along with our families and guests, were blown away by Saipua's creations and highly recommend them for an exquisite and elegant wedding like no other.
Best decision I ever made
By thayer22 on 10/13/2011
It wasn't even a choice. We didn't look at any other florists. Sarah was the nicest, most wonderful person I could have imagined, her creativity is unparalleled, her team is fantastic, and I loved every single thing she did for the wedding. I have seen other great floral work, but I truly believe hers is THE BEST. We had our wedding at a somewhat stuffy Upper East Side club and she managed to turn it into a romantic wonderland of lush, crazy arrangements using things I'd never even heard of. And on top of surprising me with flowers that far surpassed my expectations, she managed to find my favorite flower (ranunculus) in my very-specific favorite shade, out of season, and incorporate it throughout. Without her, our wedding would not have been the same. I want to get married again just for the flowers.
Amazing wedding flowers from Saipua
By mayack on 12/2/2010
I simply love the aesthetic of everything I've seen from Saipua, so I knew I had to work with them for my wedding. Sarah was lovely during the consultation, especially when my mother had a particular request for a corsage that would cascade down from the waist. Creative, honest, and encouraging. Our wedding venue was a townhouse full of antiques and decor, so we didn't need much for flowers, but what we did have, I wanted to be remarkable. I simply talked to Sarah about what colors we liked, and gave her a few images (from her own blog!) that I loved as inspiration and simply trusted she would deliver nothing but gorgeousness. And she did. She even included a few extra arrangements that weren't on the contract, and waited an hour after she was set up to finish and attach my mother's corsage since our photographs were running late as to not stress out my mother. Sarah is a true artist and will bring your vision to life above and beyond what you could expect. If you like her style, my best advice is to trust her and let her work her magic. You'll be stunned.
