    Flowers

    Did you know that Karma Goddess is also a full service floral company?

    What does that mean you ask?

    Well let me tell you.

    Vanessa started in flowers, that is how she became so meticulous in her planning actually, she worked with some of the top florists in Los Angeles and when she moved out to Miami couldn’t find the right look for her clients that also matched their budgets. So what did she do, she opened a flower department within the company. And since doing so, her flower designs have been published in 5 consecutive issues of The Knot, on Style Me Pretty and most recently on Borrowed & Blue.

Her calming way of getting things done helped to keep me, and those that were a part of my wedding, calm. Anything I asked for she looked into and gave me honest opinions when I wasn't sure how to navigate certain situations. Vanessa took my random spattering of ideas for this wedding and pulled them together to make it a weekend my Read More
