Now that the dust has sort of settled, I just wanted to email you . This past year working with you has been wonderful. From the day that we all met you at the Eden Roc, we knew that you would help make Teddi's dreams come true.
You truly are a professional Guerdy. The comments from many of our guests about how you helped run that weekend only confirmed what we already knew about you.
No matter what obstacle we ran into with the Eden Roc (and as you know their were quite a few) you always had confidence and told us that everything would be fine and you always said it with a smile. Not only were you a delight to work with, every time we spoke with your or met with you, you helped alleviate our fears.
From the bottom of my heart Guerdy, I personally wanted to say THANK YOU for making Teddi and Ryans wedding weekend absolutely fabulous. Other than losing my shoesnight (LOL!!) everything was perfect. From night , the rehearsal dinner which set the tone for the weekend to the wedding to . From the moment people valet their cars and were shown their way to the ceremony, to the cocktail party, and then to the reception which was absolutely gorgeous. What an outstanding job!!!!!! You understood Tedd's vision and followed it with flying colors. Everyone commented on the decor.....it really was fabulous.
I don't know how else to say THANK YOU....not only for your creativity, your vision, and most of all your friendship. I know that people will be talking about this wedding for years to come ...and we will have such beautiful memories for years and years, and for that I am forever grateful....
Susan and family
I feel “thank you” seems so inadequate to express my gratitude for the phenomenal job you did on Marissa & Michael’s wedding. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for your professionalism, your creativity, for executing our vision with precision and for doing it with such grace. The floral arrangements were absolutely amazing and the ballroom gorgeous. You gave us a wedding that looked like a million dollars and all our guests thought we won the lottery. I believe we did when Marissa found you and chose you to produce her wedding.
You are in a league of your own and I feel truly grateful that you were on this journey with us. It was in my opinion, the “best wedding ever.” Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Wishing you continued success and blessings!
What can we say about Guerdy? She’s something else, that’s for sure. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful. In fact, most of our guests actually told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The décor was fabulous. As you might expect, the flower arrangements were grand for certain. We mention that because we know that’s her forte, but the truth is that our wedding had ‘wow effect’ throughout every detail. In terms of logistics, Guerdy and her team really know what they’re doing and we cannot understate how comforting that is on your wedding day. At no point was the wedding party uncertain about any detail, where they needed to be and when, or how the evening was going to flow on our wedding day. Watching her and her team work was like being backstage at a Broadway production. We give Ocean Flowers/Devine Design by Guerdy our highest recommendation – absolutely fabulous job.

My flowers were GORGEOUS!!!! posted 11/17/2010
I cannot say enough just how happily suprised I was when I walked into my reception... my flowers were glamorous, grand and just simply GLORIOUS! Though I did a trial, the actual result was beyond my imagination. In addition, Guerdy is just the most lovely and attentive person, exactly who you want taking care of your wedding. Several of my guests (many who go to weddings quite often) commented on my beautiful flowers. Guerdy is amazing - THANKS OCEAN FLOWERS!
I CRIED TEARS OF SATISFACTION posted 10/13/2010
I cried when I walked down my aisle! Of course I was emotional about marrying the love of my life, but the ceremony ambiance was like a dream. I could not believe how well Guerdy Rejouis-Abraira and her floral designer Tom Valdivieso executed above my own expectations. When a bride pictures her wedding, most dream about every detail, I must say that the details are still one of the major pictures that remain in my mind two weeks after the event. My guests have called and emailed requesting business cards for not only the floral and design but for her event planning services as well. I've never been to a wedding where guest walk around and take pics of decor! The team was able to commit to my theme, a culture mix (Carribean and Indian)and make me a "happily bragging" bride. Thank you again.
Guerdy is the best! posted 11/28/2010
From the moment I was in communication with Guerdy at Ocean Flowers, I knew that she would be great for my wedding. Guerdy has such an enthusiasm for her work, and gives personalized attention to each of her customers. During our initial call, we spoke at length about the floral needs of my wedding. Guerdy gave careful attention to detail and was able to suggest ideas to realize the look that I wanted while staying within my budget. Guerdy then subsequently emailed me a detailed quote for everything we had discussed and provided us with fair and reasonable pricing. During our food tasting at our venue, Guerdy and Tom arranged a centerpiece sample for a table so that we would be comfortable with the arrangements, colors, and how it fit into the overall look of the reception. This was extremely helpful as we were able to see how the centerpiece would look in our venue and with our décor Needless to say, the sample was beautiful and worked perfectly. Before the wedding we did have some minor changes to our overall floral requirements (e.g., aisle décor, etc.) and Guerdy was helpful and creative in taking the time to help me design the look I needed, sending me pictures and making suggestions to ensure that she created the image that I wanted. Most importantly, on the day of the wedding Tom made sure that all of the arrangements were set-up and/or delivered without a hitch. The flowers were fresh and beautifully arranged, from the bridal bouquet to the aisle décor to the centerpieces to the boutonnieres. The colors were as planned and everything was just gorgeous! Guerdy and Tom were fantastic in all respects. Thank you both for helping make our wedding beautiful!
Beautiful, custom designed bouquets & arrangements posted 11/27/2010
I used Ocean Flowers for my beach wedding and was incredibly happy. Guerdy (the Owner) worked with me to get the best design, colors and arrangements for my budget, despite my numerous changes. She was the most inexpensive in the area and her work is amazing! She could charge much more for the quality of work she does. She custom built a chaaupa (I hope I spelled that correctly) on the beach, draped with sheer fabric and floral accents. We couldn't have been happier. It made a beautiful backdrop for our photos. I just wish I was able to take home all my arrangements because they were so wonderful and smelled great. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in the Miami area!
Ocean flowers = fairy godmother of wedding decor!! posted 9/18/2010
My 3 requirements to a vendor getting a A++++++ are (in order of importance): 1. Customer Service 2. Great Value 3. Quality of product Ocean flowers excelled in all 3 areas. First of all, Guerdy's personality won me over from day one. She was personable, knowledgeable and friendly. within the first few minutes of our meeting, she understood my vision, and literally ran with it and made it that much better. She was responsive to emails even with her busy schedule. Her priority was always to make me happy. Secondly, Guerdy worked with me to create a design that would fit my budget yet that I was still happy with; customizing every detail as to maximize on getting me the best bang for my buck! And honestly, the day of my wedding I was blown away by the quality of my florals and decor. Guerdy transformed my bare hotel ceremony room into a beautiful, romantic ceremony space, with a chuppah and crystal garland; She executed everything flawlessly. My bouquet was better than I imagined it would be and my reception room: Literally a dream come true. I cried when I saw it! I would recommend Ocean flowers to anyone looking for a dazzling experience when it comes to floral and decor!

Guerdy and her team at Ocean Flowers were simply amazing. They produced stunning centerpieces, bouquets and accents that were within our budget, matched our vision and set the tone for a beautiful event and a very lively reception. The team at Ocean Flowers is talented, creative, attentive and cost conscious. There were no hidden fees and we felt we received spectacular value for our money. We highly recommend them.
Best wedding planner and florist on the planet!! posted 7/27/2010
In my late 30s, I got my dream wedding and it was truly thanks to Guerdy. I am extremely detailed and particular and Guerdy was able to match me at every turn. Mine was the first Indian wedding she ever planned and she did it all with excitement, elegance, and courage! So many aspects of our wedding were new to her but you'd never know it. Our wedding weekend was spectacular from start to finish and the flowers were absolutely gorgeous! That weekend was truly the best in my life and it never would have happened quite the way it did without Guerdy. Considering all she does and the sheer fact that she is a perfectionist, she is a true BARGAIN! Hire her - you cannot go wrong!

A-MA-Zing!! posted 7/15/2010
I used Ocean Florist for my wedding. It was so beautiful! Guerdy was so easy to work with and extremely professional. We had a very intimate wedding, which cause a lot of issues with other vendors, but not Guerdy. She called when she said she was going to call; her designer showed up when he said he was going to show up. They even did a mock up of the flowers prior to the wedding me make sure we got exactly what we wanted! It was so beautiful and romantic. We got so much more than what we expected. I would HIGHLY recommend Ocean Florist to all South Florida Brides!!
Awesome!!! posted 5/19/2010
I am so glad I found Ocean Flowers for my wedding. Picking a florist was one of the hardest vendors for me to chose - We met with 9 different florists before deciding to book with Guerdy. From the begining, she seemed to really understand our vision and had great ideas, and she gave us a great quote for what we were looking for! She was easy to communicate with and she worked really hard with our trial to get it just right! The end result was executed TO PERFECTION! The value we got for what we paid was excellent. The flowers were fresh and quality and she really cared about making sure everything looked awesome. Guerdy takes pride in her events and it shows! I would not hesitate to recommend this florist to anyone. If I could go back again, I would hire her in a second!
Clean Elegance posted 5/18/2010
Those are the exact words I told Guerdy. She took those two words and transformed it to beautiful towering centerpieces dripping with crystals, floating candles and orchids, and soft pink roses. Between a gorgeous gazebo ceremony, a cocktail reception with a blossoming wishing tree, and a reception to die for... it is no wonder that my guests are still talking about my wedding. It was pure magic and I am still blown away. Guerdy and her team are beyond talented, are extremely professional, and settle for nothing less than perfection. Ocean florist receives our highest recommendation!
As a mother of the bride who knew little about flowers, decorating and design, yet had to deliver "the dream wedding," I took a leap of faith and put all my trust in Guerdy at Ocean Flowers. Guerdy did not let me down. She more than exceeded all my expectations. She uniquely created and designed everything to fit the theme my daughter was envisioning. My daughter and I never imagined that this wedding could have been so incredibly beautiful. And that was all due to Guerdy. There was no detail that she did not have under control. The flowers and all of the decorations were not only 100% perfect, but I felt that her prices were reasonable as well. On top of being incredibly talented and creative, Guerdy was consistently high energy, upbeat, positive, fun, pleasant to work with, and always available. She gets the highest of marks and praise from our family!

Absolutely Fabulous posted 5/17/2010
My husband and I were already married but we never had a wedding or reception. We planned after a year of marriage that we would have a wedding or at least a nice reception to celebrate with our close friends and family. Needless to say 4.5 years passed and life happened, we had children and moved. Two years ago we moved to South Florida and we both decided that this was the time to do it! Years back we took a vacation to Fisher Island and from that point we fell in love with that venue. I met Guerdy and I loved her personality! She has so much energy and she is so knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. I put my full trust in her service and my day was perfect!!! On the actual day of I did not have to worry about anything ,everything ran amazingly smooth. My vow renewal ended with everyone amazed at how beautiful everything was. My husband and I are so grateful to her and her staff for making so many wonderful memories that we will be able to share with our family for a lifetime!
Best Quality, Service and Value posted 5/17/2010
I had visited about 4 other florists and thought no one would understand my vision and match my budget. Another knottie (who was booked at my same venue) was using Ocean Flowers and she recommended them. I decided to call them. As soon as I got off the phone with Guerdy, the owner, I knew Ocean Flowers would execute my vision. The estimate she quoted was in my price range, so I decided to book with them. Guerdy also provided samples of the centerpieces we had discussed, which gave me a piece of mind. There were no hidden costs/fees. The day of my wedding I was completely blown away with the centerpieces and decor. Everything was so beautiful. My guests complemented every detail. I am so happy I booked Ocean Flowers; I don't think any other company would have made such beautiful creations in my budget. The staff is professional and responsible.
