What Our Clients Say

Kristine helped to create PERSIA-PINO PERFECTION

Marie Mercado-Shayeghi

I was extremely satisfied with Kristine’s amazing work for our wedding this past 6/26/22. She executed with grace, a blending of Persian & Filipino influences for our Persia-Pino Wedding. We had be communicating so much for large details & for the tiniest ones. Kristine was so professional & kept track of every little detail. She made me feel so comfortable with the process & was always willing to explain things to me even if it was just to tell me what the names of the flowers were since I was not to knowledgeable of them.
