Karen was easy to talk to and very understanding of my vision and budget.Apr 3, 2019Verified
Karen and Ray are so nice and understanding. When planning the flowers for my upcoming wedding, they offered me what I wanted and worked with me to stay within my budget. And when my world came crashing down and my wedding was cancelled, they could not have been more helpful and understanding. I highly recommend hiring them for your wedding.May 2, 2017Verified

Rev Moore and his wife Karen were absolutely phenomenal!!! Our wedding was supposed to be on 9/15 when Hurricane Florence hit and we had to cancel. It was hard to find time to rechedule but we finally decided on eloping. They both went out of their way to not only help us out at the last minute but also make our day special. It was absolutely everything we wanted it to be and I couldn’t be more thankful!!!Oct 27, 2018VerifiedFrom This Day Forward Wedding Services's reply
Heather, it was our sincere pleasure to help you and Robert. It was a lovely setting. We wish only the best for you in your life together! ~Rev Ray and Karen

Depending on the additional services required or requested, each has a separate price point. We share these costs with the couple and let them choose "ala carte" to create the Day of Their Dreams. Regardless, it's the ceremony that's important.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?An initial phone conversation to outline the scope of services requested helps us to see if we're a good fit for the couple. If that's a go, we plan out the timeline for services and decide how much we'll be doing for the couple. This is typed up and presented with our Service Agreement.
