Lyn and his staff made our ceremony and wedding reception simply fabulous. All the flowers were perfect and the centerpieces were phenomenal. Thank you Lyn!
Lyn with Fresh Affairs was wonderful to work with. He was open to ideas, had great opinions and really got a sense of our style as a couple. He was willing to work within our resasonable budget and never pushed us to spend more. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and looked like we had a much larger budget. We could not have asked for a better experience!
Lyn Graves is a floral design genius. Yes, there are other florists in the Raleigh area but none can truly do what he does. Lyn & Michael Whaley will create an unforgettable experience for your guests if you give him the opportunity. He has the ability to capture emotions and take your breath away with his designs and arrangements.
When I walked into the venue after set up, it took my breath away. It was even more beautiful than I imagined it could be. Lyn did an extraordinary job, I can't even begin to describe how incredible the arrangements looked. As soon as I walked in for my consultation, Lyn had me figured out and knew exactly what I wanted before I even had a chance to say much of anything! He was a pleasure to work with and took my visions and completely surpassed them! We are thrilled we decided to go with Fresh Affairs for our arrangements!
Lyn is wonderful!! My daughter gave him a few ideas and color schemes and he performed his magic. We left all decisions up to Lyn's discretion...after all he is the professional. When arriving at the venue we saw the Fresh Affairs staff bringing in some of the flowers and we both were amazed at the beauty!! It brought tears to my eyes. It is truly amazing to see how someone can capture such beauty with flowers. My daughter, the bride, was stunned when she saw her bouquet. She said she had never seen anything so beautiful in her life!!
Our guests were very impressed with the beautiful flowers at the wedding and reception. Many of them stated they had never been to a more beautiful wedding in their life!
Thank you Lyn for making a beautiful day for my daughter Emily!! I will be forever...
Fresh Affairs did the flowers for my rehearsal dinner, ceremony and wedding reception.
They were very easy to work with and immediately understood my vision. Lyn was extremely personable and is very talented. They were able to accommodate our budget and blow away expectations of what the flowers should look like. Everything was gorgeous and perfect. Thank you!!
Fresh Affairs did such a fabulous job, they do jaw-dropping work. They are also fantastic to work with, can customize large and small, extravagant or on a budget, and are good at both giving and taking direction and ideas. A++
Lyn and Michael (and crew)
It takes a lot to completely and utterly WOW me. You certainly know how high my standards are, after all, we chose you, FRESH AFFAIRS, to create a fairy tale extraordinaire for Megan and Bryant's wedding day!!
Our last guest just walked out our front door to head home and, of course, the honeymooners are well on their way to enjoying wedded bliss; I just had to let you know before I lay my 'dreamy' head down how ABSOLUTELY BREATH TAKING EVERY DETAIL WAS!!!!!!!
I was fortunate enough to take a moment alone with Doug in the chapel, while it was still quiet, in an attempt to take in every detail. We literally fell to our knees at the alter in humble gratitude to God and thanked Him for those of you who made yesterday the most perfect day in our lives.
Our breath was absolutely taken away in every regard!!! The reception was the likes of ANYTHING we have ever seen!!! Your 'WOW' factor was COMPLETELY over the top in every way. Our praises are flying your way! WE ARE SO VERY PROUD TO CALL 'FRESH AFFAIRS' OURS!!!
Highest of compliments and praise for a job well done. A moment unlike any other.....EVER!!!
I will be in touch very soon!
The most wonderful thing about Fresh Affairs is the VALUE that you get when you work with them. I thought for sure that I could not afford their work, but we figured out a budget together and the end result was so classy. There were way more flowers than I expected, and Lyn has great artistic vision.
They were always quick to reply to email and phone calls, adjusted the quote to my budget (my REAL budget, which the other florists I looked at simply ignored!!), and were extremely helpful all throughout the process.
Lyn Grave and Fresh Affairs did a fabulous job for my wedding. My flowers were stunning and my reception was magical. He exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Fresh Affairs to anyone.
I cannot even come up with the words to describe how breathtakingly beautiful our flowers turned out! I was absolutely speechless when my husband and I walked in the ballroom for our reception. The flowers were stunning! We got so many compliments from family and friends about the centerpieces. Working with Lyn and his team was an absolute joy. Lyn was very responsive to our feedback as we finalized a vision for our wedding (we were very unsure about what we wanted when we started working with him). He really worked with us to respect the budget that we had and gave great suggestions. I would highly, highly recommend Fresh Affairs to anyone!
I dont' believe there is another florist in Raleigh that can do what Lyn does. I met with him and he blew me away with ideas. He is amazing!! The detail and design is just breathtaking and he is so easy to work with. When he says TRUST him thats all you have to do!
Although the altar arrangements made for the church were beautiful, everything else was a complete miss! I asked for my bridal bouquet to have a base of white hydrangeas incorporating different types of white roses. The bridesmaids' bouquets were to be all white roses. I was so disappointed to see that my bridal bouquet didn't include a single hydrangea, my main request! In fact, other than being slightly larger, my bouquet did not differ from the bridesmaids' bouquets. Also, I was told the flower girl basket could be made to match my decor. When I asked to see a picture as an example, Lyn told me, "Don't worry, it will look fine." I even gave him a swatch of the Tiffany blue color I was using as this can be a very subjective color to match. I was not happy with the bright blue ribbon which was threaded all through the flower girl's basket, and had I known the ribbon would be used in this much detail, I would have gladly provided the ribbon myself in order to match my other wedding decor. The boutonnieres were also not what I requested, and they were already wilting before the reception. I emailed Fresh Affairs to explain my disappointment but did not receive a response.
Lyn was amazing. I showed him some pictures of what we liked and described what we envisioned and he took care of the rest! When I saw our venue I was speechless! Fresh Affairs did an amazing job!!
Lyn Graves absolutely exceeded my expectations. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted for my wedding day...I just knew that I wanted soft romantic flowers with the colors of pink and yellow incorporated. I chose Lyn because of his years of experience, professionalism and creativeness. He and the rest of the staff at Fresh Affairs were always responsive and available for questions in the event that I had any, and I thought that their prices were very reasonable for the expertise and quality that they offered. The flowers were one of the most important things to me on the wedding day, and when we opened the doors to the ballroom....I was floored, not only by the scent of the flowers but how beautifully they were arranged and how Fresh Affairs took the time to light the room with floating candles to make it even more romantic. THANK YOU SO MUCH FRESH AFFAIRS!!!
I had a vision for what our wedding day would look like and Fresh Affairs far exceeded it in how they decorated our ceremony site. The bouquets were not exactly what I was hoping for but they did do their best to find the flowers I was seeking. Overall, everything was gorgeous and they worked with me and my budget to get the most value.
I was really pleased with Fresh Affairs! We were in the situation where we didn't have a chance to come into the studio to sit down with the florist and talk about our options...all the business was done over the phone or through email. I just told them the flowers I wanted, the colors I wanted, and the amount of $ I had to work with and they were able to give us great arrangements! There was a mishap with the boutonnieres (they were forgotten in their fridge when delivering the other arrangements but we didn't notice until the day after the wedding!) and I thought I was going to have to call and make a case for getting the money back but to my surprise there was an email on Monday morning after the wedding stating that they were sorry they forgot them and that our credit card was being refunded for the missing boutonnieres (I didn't even have to call them which was such a relief!). They were very easy to work with and very attentive! I would recommend them to anyone that needs flower arrangements!
Lyn Graves is amazing!! He does wonderful work and is super fun to work with! I just told him colors basically and my flowers turned about to be AMAZING!!!
Amazing! I'd post photos if I could. The flowers were just what I asked for. Lyn is such a gentleman to work with and he created the most beautiful flowers for the wedding. Words can't describe how pleased we were with his artistry. Just breathtaking.
Wonderful!!!! Lyn Graves with Fresh Affairs listened to the wants of the bride and the flowers were amazing!!!!
