Amazing!! I don't even know if that word does Janel justice! She blew my expectations out of the water. I absolutely loved how everything turned out! All of our guests raved about our centerpieces and all the décor details and I still am in love with my bouquet. Janel was an absolute pleasure to work with always friendly and great at returning emails timely and answering any questions. I felt as though every penny was worth it."

How did I go from professional Artist & Consultant to Event Designer & Educator? Well, to be honest, I did it in tears. It was after a near disaster during my own wedding in 2003. I knew that if there was a way I could use my gifts and knowledge to help other brides not go through what I had gone through I wanted to be a part of that. 3 years later, in 2006, Vivid Expressions was born!
Over the years my team and I have had the honor of helping hundreds of couples celebrate the most amazing day of their lives. And it feels like pure magic to see our clients live out their dreams.
