    Chris and her team did an exceptional job - I was floored when I walked into our reception room. I lived out of town but Chris took the time to meet with me to discuss about my ideas. Chris was so welcoming, patient and kind. We received so many compliments on how elegant the room looked. It truly felt like walking into a dream.

    Chris was also quick on communication. I had a last minute request for an arbour for the altar and sent Chris a picture of what I was looking for and she was able to send me some snaps of what she was able to do. The result turned out fantastic - I can't recommend Chris and her team enough!

    Thank you so much Chris for making our day so special. We really couldn't have done it without you.

    Using "Stuff by Chris" was a very pleasant experience. She offered such a wide variety of options at her in home studio. She listened to what I was looking for and was able to use suggestions to match my vision perfectly. I was able to obtain beautiful additions to our venue decor within our modest budget. I would recommend Chris to anyone looking for a decorator in the Niagara Region or beyond!

    Chris was very professional and knowledgeable to work with. I was very indecisive with what I wanted, but she was always helpful in providing ideas and suggestions. Chris has a wide variety of decor options and even when I wanted something she didn't have, she got it for me. The decor at our wedding was beautiful and we cant thank Chris enough for making our vision a reality. She did an amazing job.

    Stuff by Chris's reply:

    Thank you, Christina! So honored to be a part of your special day. Wishing you both happiness always!

    We just wanted to reach out and say THANK YOU for such a stunning job you did with the decor for us! I was completely blown away when I saw the reception room all setup, as well as the foyer. It was absolutely gorgeous and more than I could have ever hoped for! You captured my vision and then took it too a whole new level - a level that I could not have been happier with! You went above and beyond to make our day so stunning, and for that I will be forever grateful -- we have the memories and the photos that have your touch of elegance in the background!

    We will highly recommend you to all of our engaged friends - the planning process with you and the day itself was so easy with great communication and understanding and I am so grateful for that!

    Thank you again for all of your time, your patience, and most of all your amazing talent in turning my dream wedding decor into a reality!

    Cheers,

    Alycia & James

    Chris is absolutely wonderful. You can bring in photos that you like and she can make them a reality. She also has 100s of photos from your venue and others to show different ideas you might be interested in, so wonderful to have a clear picture before agreeing to your decor. We could not have been happier with how everything looked from bouquets, to to the head table, ceremony room, etc. Also very reasonably priced. I would recommmend her for family or friends in the area :-)
    Thank you Chris

    Working with Chris towards creating the perfect atmosphere for my wedding was a creative and enjoyable experience. I met with Chris twice before my wedding and both times I was very indecisive making decisions. Chris was patient with me and when I got stuck she offered alternatives which would combine the options that I couldn't decide between. The day of my wedding I was in complete awe of how perfect the room came together and my Husband said he couldn't believe how we were able to transform the room into the vision that I had. It was so comforting to work with a professional that I trusted and did not need to worry about about coming through for us on our wedding day.

    Thank you, Carolyn, for entrusting this very special day to us. Wishing you much love and happiness!
