"I loved working with Matt. He was the florist for my wedding and I loved all the floral arrangements he provided. I was very specific of how I wanted things to look and he delivered and more! Not only was Matt responsive and professional, he listened to what I wanted and worked effortlessly to make my wedding vision board come to life. I couldn't have asked for a better florist! I highly recommend hiring him!" - winnie l.

“Matt, thank you so much for everything. The flowers were beautiful. I LOVED my bouquet. Thank you for everything!” - Stephanie b.

"Thanks so much, matt, for being part of our wedding. You really helped keep us to a reasonable budget, and worked with us to make the space still look great even when we had to cut some numbers on the flowers. You kept us on time and looking great. Our bouquets were beautiful!" Love, jen and sam.

"Matt really helped us bring our vision for our "Winter Olympics" company holiday party to life. We had a general idea, and he was able to suggest specific decorations and details to really tie everything together. We didn't have to worry about anything because we could confidently leave everything to him for set up and break down. The price was also perfect! We definitely recommend using Forsyth Designs." - heather d." 

"I mentioned this during the speech in my wedding: "I don't know what we would have done without Matt." He helped and guided us since the beginning, from finding a venue for 3 events (it was a destination wedding and we wanted 3 days of festivities, welcome drinks, wedding, and farewell drinks) to the end. Matt was very reliable, professional, and patient. He answered hundreds of emails/questions I had during the planning. Everything turned out to be the way we dreamed about. I loved the decor, flowers arrangements, and the suggestions he gave us when we didn't know what to chose. We are very happy with Forsyth Designs and we'd absolutely recommend him for your event!" - Karine R.

"Matt was such a wonderful help to us during the entire wedding process - from collecting our ideas to help create a vision for the big day, to making sure everything went smoothly on the actual wedding day. Matt was great because he didn't pressure us, he was super chill and always said, "hey guys, it's YOUR wedding," to make sure we made decisions that we would be happy with at the end of the day. This can be tough when different family and friends have differing opinions on what you should do. It was great having Matt on our side to guide us, make recommendations, and then work in the background to make it all happen seamlessly. We loved working with him and we'll definitely be recommending him to friends!" nancy c.

"Matt was awesome to work with - took my input and made it come to life in a very cool candy buffet that the guest of honor loved! He was great at communicating, made things easy for me, and I would definitely recommend working with him." -matt b.

"Forsyth designs is an exceptional event planning business. Matt coordinated our wedding in Wichita, Ks. There were several hurdles to navigate to accomplish the wedding that our son and his new wife had envisioned. Matt accomplished everything that they wanted. He clearly has the experience necessary to work with venues and vendors to make dream weddings come true." - patrica w.

"My husband and I were just married and Matt planned our wedding reception. He did a fantastic job - the event was perfect! Matt was knowledgeable and really easy to work with. His recommendations were spot on. My husband and I took forever with some decisions and Matt was good about following up with us as well as taking last minute requests. Definitely highly recommend!" - Danica h.

"Matthew beautiful floral's for our wedding that we're beyond our expectations! He is also very patient and gives good advice about how to get the best look and best use out of your arrangements. We will definitely work with him again if we have a big event." - rania o.

"Matt was the sole event designer for my wedding, and I have to say, he is one of the most talented people I have ever worked with. He was patient with me during the entire planning process, always listened to my ideas, and offered better solutions where necessary. Forsyth Designs took care of my flowers, decor orders / rentals, ceremony and reception setup, and were the first point of contact for all vendors day of. Having planned and produced so many events flawlessly, he did all of this with ease, and no task seemed to be out of his reach. I would highly recommend Forsyth Designs for your wedding decor and flowers. Very easy to work with, and Matt is a really great person that you will want to be a part of your BIG day. He will bring your dream wedding to life!" - maggie g.

"I was more than pleased! We got much larger flower arrangements than I had anticipated for the price. They looked amazingly similar to my inspiration pics and also blended well with the decor I had created. Overall, flowers were not something I thought I cared too much about--however Matt not only made them fit within my budget, but also made them one of my favorite touches to our wedding. I cannot recommend Forsyth Designs enough. Wonderful to work with all around." - susan c.

"I would highly recommend Matt to anyone. He went above and beyond with coordinating my wedding, and was especially patient with me during my most stressful bridal moments. We even had to go for a Plan B ceremony due to weather, and Matt put everything together so beautifully, it was breath taking. Our wedding ended up being perfect! Thank you for EVERYTHING!" - Olivia

"Yes...matt is the best! We had a few hiccups with our event and had to change venues late in the planning process. This did not phase Matt as a problem in the least and was quick in finding the perfect new venue. Also, our budget did not allow for the anticipated amount for decor. Again, Matt worked his magic and the decor was a complete hit, really tying together our 80s themed Prom Night. Matt stays cool, calm, and collected throughout the whole planning process, which really adds to an overall smooth experience. If you are looking for an event planner, here is your guy!"  - Allie

"Matt was wonderful to work with. Timing was certainly tight for this event ( 2 business days after I sent the quote request) and Matt definitely came through for us. The flowers arrangments were perfect and he kept me updated throughout the entire process. His response times were quick and I was very confident that he would fulfill our order as described. Working remotely with first-time vendors can be challenging, and I'm very glad I chose Forsyth Designs. I will definitely work with them again."  - marisa

"Matt, you're great! Thank you for the wonderful decorations and also for being so patient with such a sloppy customers.

"Matt is an exceptional professional. My team hosted an intimate charity event and we hired Matt to plan the event and do day-of coordination. We have been so swamped and desperately needed the help! We provided the budget, and Matt answered with creative and delightful options that fit within it. We walked into the venue the day of the event and were completely blown away, he really thought of everything. It was also so reassuring having him run the show during the event. He was ever calm and collected, seamlessly transiting between activities, which really allowed us to focus on our guests. I would hire Matt and his team again in a heartbeat." - Britt

"Matt did an incredible job creating very unique floral arrangements for me. All my guests were wowed and they were literally the showstoppers. Thank you!" - Jordan K.

“Matt was amazing as our day of wedding coordinator! He was very easy to work with and was attentive to our vision. Even when we thought things would be difficult to accomplish - he was able to do it with ease. He never made us feel as if our plan wasn’t going to work out! He even had some great ideas for us for the decorations! Thank you Matt for making the day easy and memorable!”

- CeeCee 


“Forsyth Designs was the mastermind behind the exceptionally beautiful and customized decor for our wedding. Matt’s ability to translate our vision into a reality that far exceeded our expectations while staying on budget was the best “gift” a bride could ask for! He literally transformed a white tent into a stunning lounge-like atmosphere that accommodated our every need and desire. There isn’t a large scale event or party that I would consider hosting without collaboration from Forsyth Designs. Working with Matt & his team is seriously delightful on every level!”

- Megan J. 


“Matt did an amazing job decorating our wedding reception venue. He really listened to what we wanted, and came up with great ideas that worked out very well. He was very professional and prompt with correspondence. Just tell him your budget and he will give you options and suggestions on quality yet affordable decor ideas. It was a joy working with Matt, and as I said the reception venue looked great, we got really good compliments on the decor.”

“I hired Forsyth Design to decorate our office for our company holiday party. Matthew and his team did an amazing job, turning our space into a winter wonderland with dangling lights, and festive reindeer and penguins. The centerpieces he created for the cocktail tables were so cute and enchanting. He stayed within our budget and was extremely easy to work with. Great communication and follow-up. I would definitely hire them again!” - Claire


“I was looking for help in making our office (located in SOMA) have some holiday cheer. Working with Matt was terrific! He swung by our office for an initial consultation. He walked through the office and immediately had ideas for how to add cost-effective holiday décor to create a fun and festive space. He then purchased decorations and allowed us to rent some decorations from his personal collection. He decorated the office in the morning before our employees arrived so it was a surprise when everyone showed up to work. The office looks terrific and almost all of our employees have commented on how great the office looks! Matt is a very nice and creative guy that was highly responsive to communication. I really enjoyed working with him and will definitely hire him again in the future. Thank you, Matt – everyone here at Gigwalk appreciates your help in making our office spirited for the holidays!” - Jordan K.


“Working with Forsyth Designs for our wedding was an experience in itself. Matt has a keen eye for detail and for the little things that make your event enjoyable for all your guests. I’ll definitely be working with them on future projects!” - Todd V.
