Walk-in Bride and Groom

There is always something unexpected happening at Carter’s!

Today a bride and groom visited our shop in search of a bridal bouquet. They are getting married tonight on St. Pete Beach. I took them in the cooler and the bride picked out a handful of flowers that she wanted transformed into a bridal bouquet. While Rob was designing the bouquet the happy couple went down the street for an award winning Chattaburger.

A Virtual Consultation… Worldwide

Recently we were contacted by a future sister-in-law about providing wedding florals and decor for an upcoming bride at the Don CeSar, St. Pete Beach, Florida.

The catch was that she lived in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and her mother in South America. There was never a possibility of meeting in person with these two decision makers so we scheduled a virtual consultation between them and our bridal consultant. The mother had googled us on-line which led her to us thru our website. All decisions were made during 2 virtual consultations and the floral and decor was implemented flaulessly.

Terry, We just wanted to thank you for the fabulous job you did on my brother’s wedding. We could not have asked for anything more beautiful. You are amazing and should be commended for your patience, your excellence and professionalism. The flowers were stunning and were noticed by all! We will surely recommend you to anyone we know in your area! Thank you again and take good care of yourself!

The Carter Team, looking forward to a long and relaxing weekend after the Christmas/New Years holidays, was contacted to provide florals and decor for an impromptu wedding on Jan. 2, 2010.

The bride and groom desired to capture romance and candelight in the Renaissance Vinoy Tea Garden and to transform Fred’s Bar, the hotels private dining room, into an upscale, New York inspired, dinner club for 60 people.

Of course our talented team was able to create the proper arrangements and decor much to the couples pleasure.

An email received on January 14th stated:

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding so spectacular!! You really helped me create the WOW effect I wanted and it could not have been more perfect, thank you!!

I managed to sneak in to have a look at Fred’s before the guests arrived and it was exactly what I had invisioned!! You were spot on with the table cloths and just seeing the whole colour scheme come together and really pop as it did was wonderful. The napkins, gold plates, flowers, chairs…..everything was just magical!!

The candles on the fountain blew me away, so classy and stylish……perfection!!

Kind regards, Kelly

Virtual Consultations make wedding planning easier!

Harnessing the newest technology Carter’s gives brides the experience of a virtual consultation in the privacy of their own home.  This is especially useful in planning a Tampa Bay destination wedding or when unable to coordinate a busy schedule for an in-store consultation.

The process is simple!  A convenient appointment time is scheduled ensuring the bride to be at a computer and telephone while we link their computer with ours.  They are able to view everything on our computer screen; photo galleries, set sketches, linens and more  as if sitting in our store.  Request a virtual consultation.
