About

Lyn Graves

Flowers are my life-literally! It is all I know and it is all that I do. I set up my first wedding at the age of 9 and now my portfolio includes over 10,000 weddings and events in 14+ states!”

Michael Whaley

I like to characterize myself as a designer who can think outside the box-allowing our clients to maximize their budgets-and, at the same time, producing creations that exceed their visions.

How we approach your special event

Fresh Affairs is about results and about exceeding expectations. Our goal is to realize your dreams and vision, to make real the event you only imagined. We don’t focus on fads or trends, we focus on you-on the things you want, hope and expect.From classic to creative, from simple to stunning, we combine experience with imagination to make your event what it should be-amazing and unforgettable-a memory to cherish forever.
