Petals and Twist (sic:)Patina was prompt, easy to talk to, and completely professional at every turn. Leslie did a great job of talking me through the process of envisioning what our flowers might look like by sending photos along with the descriptions. On the wedding day the space began looking nice, but by the time the flowers were delivered and the tables were filled with flowers, everything looked truly stunning and even more beautiful than I had imagined!

You are amazing! Thank you SOOOOOO much!!!!! Words cannot express how much I LOVED the flowers. They were simply exquisite. I was in tears of joy when I first saw my flower bouquet and all the flower corsets. And the dinner table and wedding cake flowers were beyond my imagination beautiful. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Our wedding could not have been any better. Thank you for making it happen.

Rarely outside of a major metropolitan area do you find someone with Leslie’s aesthetic, creativity, design sense, and production experience. I first sought out Leslie when I needed help with two different but connected client events that took place over several days and on large properties in the same month. She helped to design and execute a cohesive look for both events from the floral arrangements, to the place settings, to the Pendleton blankets around the fire. She worked magic for me and my client in an environment of super high expectations, limited time, and where being able to work as a team was essential. I wish all of my remote location events involved someone like Leslie.
