Words from our Happy Clients

Tara & Gary ( Innisfil Farm Wedding )

I was really picky with whom I approached to do our flowers. (I did a lot of research on the web prior to contacting Opulence.) What I found most difficult was preparing for our initial meeting because I knew I would be asked to explain/describe my vision for the flowers, but what I wanted could not be torn out of a bridal magazine or found on the web. I wanted something unique and fresh! Shawna took a really long time flushing out exactly what I wanted. She opened up countless books to show me similar ideas to ensure she was “on the right track”. I appreciated the time (and many notes) she took to make me feel confident that my needs would be met. I really like that all of Opulence’s creations are unique to the bride. There is no “using the same idea twice.” After talking with Shawna I knew that she completely understood my vision and needs. I was confident that on my wedding day when my bouquet arrived that it would meet or exceed my expectations. Sorry, this is not very “flowery” but – for many brides a budget needs to be carefully managed. I appreciated that Opulence was aware of my budget and gave me everything I needed and stayed in budget. At no time did I feel I was being “up-sold” additional items, etc. It is not romantic to talk about budgets, but for my groom and me, it made our day even better knowing our gorgeous flowers were within our means.

Sarah & Justin ( Delta Grandview, Huntsville )

I was frustrated because I was having trouble finding someone who could offer me my floral and decorating as a package for my wedding, in my price range, with the supplies and ideas that I wanted and to find someone who was friendly and that I could work with. Shawna was all of this for me and so much more! Shawna fullfilled all my floral and decorating dreams times 100! She was approachable, fun, helpful, caring, efficient and most of all patient!! Have some ideas when you meet with Shawna but also be open to her suggestions. She is fabulous and can help you and guide you especially if you are overwelmed with all of it like I was! What she provided that I valued most was PATIENCE and a voice! Shawna took what I was saying and helped me create the backdrop, table settings and floral arrangements that I dreamed of!

Danielle & Peter ( Nottawasaga Inn )

Well, the dust has almost settled and life is almost back to normal…….if there is such a thing! I just wanted to let you know once again, how much of a wonderful job that you did for our special day! You are a blessing in disguise! You are a very talented women and you are a pleasure to deal with. You always had our needs in your hands and you always were out to please us no matter what it took. I knew when I first met you that you were the one that was for us! Your personality is fantastic, your caring, loving and out to please. I could not of found anyone better (barr none) to have made our vision come true. I feel that Peter and I have made a new friend! Don`t ever give up what you do because it takes a very special person to take a crazy brides vision and make it come to life. People have not stopped talking about Saturday night! Allot of people have said things like “this was a Danielle wedding“, “Only Danielle could of pulled that off!“ I told everyone that I only had the vision and that you were the one that made the dream come true. Everyone asked me `where did you find your decor lady….she`s awesome! I said “I know`! I will be sending the Nottawasaga some pics of the room that my friends have captured that totally does it justice! I will send them to you too! Shawna…..thank-you, thank-you, thank-you for being who you are, thank-you for being a part of our lives, and thank-you for being you!!!! You are the best! Keep smiling…… 🙂 Forever Grateful Danielle and Peter Robaszek xoxoxo

Brenda ( Nottawasaga Inn )

I wanted to let you know that the flowers you provided for our wedding day were absolutely BREATHTAKING! I have never seen flowers so vibrant and beautiful. We had MANY compliments on the colours and quality. You made my day! Your work is amazing and well worth the price. I would also be happy to provide a personal recommendation for your work and services. Potential clients can contact me directly for an oral recommendation.

Krysta & Kaz ( Garden Wedding )

Kaz & I would like to thank you both for providing us with such lovely flowers and decorations for our wedding last Saturday. Everything looked absolutely amazing and I’ve actually had several guests tell me that it was the nicest wedding they’ve ever attended (including the guitarist!) and we cannot thank you enough for making it all look so spectacular! Thank you!

Barbara ( Mother of the Bride. Woodington Lake )

I just wanted to extend my own personal thanks for the beautiful memories you are a part of. It has been a few days now since Alison & Andy’s wedding and as we reflect on the happy occasion we remember the fabulous flowers that accented the day. You captured Alison’s vision of many daisies to compliment the theme she wished. Woodington Lake’s charm was only enhanced by your efforts. The Bride and Groom beamed among the yellow and white bouquets! Such a special memory to record will be captured in everyone’s pictures forever. Thank you for adding to our celebration.

Amanda & Jordan

Thank you for putting so much thought and dedication into my wedding flowers. I appreciate the special touches you personally added to help make you wedding a beautiful success. We continue to get compliments on the beautiful flowers and will cherish them always. Much thanks.

Carly ( Taboo Resort )

Just a quick note to thank you for the gorgeous flowers. Everything looked exactly as I wanted it to! The bouquets were the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen and the buckets and centerpieces were big hits with everyone… I just could not have asked for anything more, they were truly perfect.

Dina ( Mother of the Bride, Barrie )

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for all your efforts for the big day. The floral arrangements were AMAZING in their bold fall colours. They were spectacular and we had a lot of comments from people asking, ‘Who did the flowers?!’ I must say, I did not in my wildest dreams think that they would be so magnificent. Thank you so very much for your creativity and expertise. A big thank you goes out, also, to Shawna, as she, too, played a big role in this. You ladies are wonderful!


Wow, wow, wow!
What an incredible job you did with absolutely everything!!!
The flowers were absolutely incredible, the decor… when I walked into the room, I was in awe.. guests were talking to me and I was mesmerized by how beautiful the room looked. I had to snap out of it a few times and apologize!
I am sooooo very happy with how everything turned out! I couldn’t have picked a better person for the job!
Thanks Shawna, I will forever be thankful to you and would definitely recommend you to everyone!
You made our special day unbelievably beautiful!

Alisha – Barrie Country Club

Everything with the venue was STUNNING. I had to stand there blinking for a few minutes just to take it all in. I couldn’t believe I was standing IN my vision. You accomplished the elegant, polished, timeless look I was going for, and even thought FOR me when you had to. I am SO grateful I had you as my florist and decorator. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Here are some pics from the day, I hope you admire your work as much as I did!!

Lots of love,

Rick & Akshay, Touchstone Resort

All my friends and family were mesmerized how she embraced the venue and our vision. My husband and I have no words to thank Shawna for making our wedding a dream wedding for many. We highly recommend her to anyone wishing to wow their guests and themselves.

Breanne & Dean, Horseshoe Resort

Choosing Opulence Floral Design and Event Decor to create our florals and decor was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Shawna McLachlan, the owner of Opulence, was such an amazing person to work with!

She really went the extra mile for us! Her eye for what looks good/goes well together is AMAZING, and her attention to detail is fantastic.

The way she decorated our ceremony and reception spaces were STUNNING. So much so that the people working at our venue told us that our wedding was one of the prettiest they have seen put together there and asked us for Opulence’s contact info. Opulence (Shawna McLachlan) truly gave me the wedding of my dreams. She is a lovely person, and so easy to work with. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to any bride looking for beautiful, lush flowers and decor.
