Tanya,

You are a True Professional! Your service was excellent. The original decorations were beautiful. Your flexibility regarding our pricing and the challenges our last minute change in venue produced was most appreciated. I truly enjoyed working with you and hope to do so again.

Again, your service was wonderful!!!!

Hands down she is one of the best planners ever. Tanya is very passionate about what she does, she cares about all her brides and grooms and even their families too. She makes it her business to make sure that the couple is happy and taken care of and she is a great problem solver and even a friend. Tanya is one of the best because she remains herself and handles business. She is very professional and understanding and you will not find anyone better. We were having our wedding in another state, and this was one of the best experiences that I have ever had. Even to this day being months after the wedding our families are still talking about how our wedding was the best they have ever attended, and it's all thanks to Tanya. We were having problems with our first planner and Tanya stepped in and handled everything, she relieved all of our stresses and made us feel relaxed. We knew that everything would be taken control of and I let her do her magic, she took a possible disaster and made it beautiful wedding that we couldn't even dream of.

Hi Tanya
Words cannot describe how much I appreciate what you and your assistants did for us on our special day! It turned out more beautiful than i could even imagine. My family even said how all of you were so pleasant and caring. Everything looked so elegant and thanks so much for the cards that were made. I will definitely call you again for any future events that we may have. My husband and I were able to just enjoy ourselves because you took care of everything. Job well done! Please tell all of your assistants thank you so much

We could not have asked for a more outstanding florist and decorator for our wedding! Not only is Tanya the sweetest and kindest person to work with, but the work of her and her team is the epitome of excellence. From the time we booked her until the very day of our wedding, Tanya met and exceeded our desires and expectations! We can honestly say that she stuck to her word and provided us with beautiful floral arrangements and decorations...and she worked within OUR budget! Our guests are STILL talking about how great everything looked.
Thanks Tanya!!

Thank you Tanya for my perfect wedding! I am so grateful and inspired by all of your creativity, support, and endless energy! We had such an amazing time at our own wedding!! Everything was flawlessly beautiful, yet unique, just the way I imagined. I could not have asked for a better teammate for the planing and enjoyment of our wedding. I hope to work with you and Leann again, the beauty queens of wedding planning!
We love you guys.
Thank you so much,

We utilized Tanya and Graceful Designs for my daughters wedding in October. I can honestly say that Tanya and her staff are masterful planners. They did not overlook a single detail for the event which was staged in several different (and remote) locations over the course of a very busy and complex day. Tanya is a magnificent host, gracious and classy. She personally took responsibility for every detail and for the comfort of all of our “out of town” guests.

 

If you want a meticulously planned wedding that is flawless in every detail, you need to use Tanya and Graceful Designs. It will be worth every penny you spend and the perfect memories will be priceless.

When we started out with our daughter's wedding Tanya was just our florist; then Tanya turned into our everything! Tanya took control and she was just amazing. She was our florist, our wedding co-ordinator, and even served everyone on that day. This was the most beautiful and elegant wedding and it just
happened to be our daughter's! We believe Tanya was heaven sent and she was just a
blessing to our family.

Thanks Tanya,
We love you!!

I worked with Tanya from Graceful Designs and she was wonderful! She created beautiful floral arrangements that were absolutely breathtaking! She also supplied us with more accessories for the wedding, such as: ring bearer pillow, flower girl basket, unity candles and much more! She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met and it was a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend her and the marvelous work that she does. Our wedding day was wonderful and we were so thankful that Tanya and her beautiful designs were a part of our special day.

Tanya.....Everything was PERFECT. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect wedding. You designed EVERYTHING the way I wanted it....and I mean everything....you didn't miss a detail. Everyone was asking about the florists so hopefully we will be swinging lots of business your way. You are a wonderful and talented florist and most importantly a beautiful woman in Christ inside and out. Thank you for not only being our florist but for being a great role model in Christ! I love you and will see you soon!

The ballroom at Hampton Roads Convention Center looked amazing. Tanya Frazier not only coordinated the wedding but did all the flower arrangements in towering displays that included pale green, variegated cala lillies and palm fronds.

"Beautiful Flowers !!"

Tanya Frazier of Graceful Designs did the flowers for my father's surprise 80th birthday party. She did a fantastic job! The flowers were colorful, fresh and beautiful. Tanya did wonderful arrangements for the buffet table, centerpieces for the tables, greenery, corsages... the works. It was a fun experience working with Tanya. She is a nice person and has a great personality. I would recommend her to anyone.

Tanya created all the floral arrangements and flowers for my daughter, Sheron's wedding and they were absolutely beautiful. Not only was she professional and completed all her decorations on time she went out of her way to help the wedding coordinator on our special day. I even noticed the quality of chair covers and ribbons she used was far above the quality I had seen at bridal shows. May God continue to bless and prosper you and your business! Nancy
