You helped her dream come true! Fresh petals are very expensive, but your product made it affordable and so beautiful... we ordered the 12,000 petals in a mix of orange, white with hot pink tips and light pink with the help and suggestions of your wonderful customer reps. The petals came two days before the wedding and as suggested, we kept them in a cool dark location, until we were able to transport them up to the venue site the day before the wedding. They were stored in a cool dark place at the venue and looked ever so fresh and lovely when they were scattered along the border edges of the 20 yard walkway 1/2 hour before the ceremony. It was warm that day, in the mid 80s, and they still looked so wonderful, fresh and colorful at the start of the sunset ceremony. Thank you for helping Monica's vision come true. We received such compliments on the colors and wedding site! It made such beautiful photos!
