  • I don’t even know where to begin. Simply put Kristi is AMAZING. From the first conversation we had to our wedding day she was always there to answer my questions. She took my thoughts and ideas and made them reality. The decorations were amazing! If there was any problems I never heard of them. She made everything run so smoothly. I don’t know what we would have done without her. Thank you Kristi!!!!

  • Absolutely amazing and a breeze to work with. Did both my flowers and twinkle lights. The venue set up the tables early and she was supposed to do the lighting first and she worked around the tables and did everything seamlessly. Highly recommend!!!

  • I highly recommend working with Kristi, my experience was absolutely wonderful! After another florist was giving me the run around and reasons why my bouquet wouldn’t work, Kristi was eager to help. I gave her ideas of my vision for my bridal bouquets, and she nailed them! The urns were gorgeous as well.

  • WE loved our flowers for the wedding! They were more beautiful than I could have hoped for. The designer was very easy to work with and all went very smooth on the day of the wedding.

  • Kristi and her crew at Simply Exquisite by the Bay did a wonderful job, in every way, as the planner and flower provider for my daughter's wedding. Every member of our families, as well as our guests, were delighted with everything, and Kristi was as professional, helpful, and accomodating to our requests and needs as she could be. From the first time we met a year ago, to the final details and throughout the wedding and reception, she took care of everything, with grace and energy. It was also a destination wedding, with my daughter and her husband living in Portland, and we coming from downstate in Michigan, so to have someone that all the vendors, including caterer, chairs, sound system, etc., knew so well and respected so much was wonderful, too. I can't say enough about Kristi and her abilities, and you can quote me!

  • I highly recommend Simply Exquisite by the Bay for floral design and wedding coordination. Kristi did an incredible job of bringing my vision to reality. I hired Kristi to design all floral arrangements including bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres, and decor for the ceremony and reception. Every detail was gorgeous. I also hired Kristi as my wedding coordinator for the day of the wedding (Day of Design and Style/Coordination Package). She made sure everything looked beautiful and that everything went smoothly.

  • We planned our wedding with Kristi for about a year, and the whole way through she took on many different roles; My wedding coordinator, my motivator, my reminder, my reigns, my intuition, my counselor, my coach, my designer, my bouncer, my calculator, and after everything was all said and done, my friend. Planning a wedding quickly proved to be a daunting task, and without SEBTB, I'm not sure I would have survived. Kristi helped me bring my pinterest dreams to life, coached me through financial decisions, and turned our 'blank canvas' property into a beautiful wedding venue. Kristi, thank you for making our wedding day so special - from the lighting to the flowers- everything you touch is simply, exquisite! Love always, The Cilluffo's

  • Kristi Mills, owner, did an absolutely outstanding job in creating our daughter's wedding day to be the magical event that it turned out to be. Kristi loves what she does and it shows. She created all of the flowers for the bride, bridesmaids, groom, groomsmen, mothers of the bride and groom and the flowers throughout the venue. Also the props and lighting that she created were stunning! She was terrific to work with and we would give her the highest rating!

  • Simply Exquisite by the Bay is a must if you are planning a Northern Michigan weddinf. Kristi went above and beyond as both my floral designer and wedding coordinator/planner. She was able to create my vision from little information (as I am not artistic or design savvy) and we couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. She has wonderful insight about Frankfort/Traverse City and the surrounding area. She was very responsive and offered great advice and pricing. Our wedding would not have been so perfect without Kristi and her team! Thank you so much.

  • Krisit was simply fantastic. She truly made the day so beautiful and helped us enjoy our day without the added stress. I truly think we wouldn't have had such a great time and wouldn't have been so relaxed had it not been for her.

  • Kristi and Simply Exquisite by the bay did an amazing job!! They came prepared with details and final touches I only thought about when (I thought) it was too late. All of the flower arrangements were exactly as I pictured and very reasonable in cost. Kristi even found a way to incorporate pieces I brought along and made everything look absolutely perfect without me needing to say a word! I also used Kristi's "coordinating services" and I couldn't have been happier. She relieved SO MUCH stress and again, I felt like she knew exactly what I wanted and needed without me having to ask. Without Kristi and Simply Exquisite, our day wouldn't have been the perfect day we dreamed of! I'll never be able to thank her enough!

The flowers turned out absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't have asked for better service or attention to detail. We strongly recommend Simply Exquisite by the bay to anyone planning an event in Northwest Lower Michigan!

  • Kristi was so awesome! I used Simply Exquisite by the Bay for floral and day-of coordination services, and I couldn't have been more pleased. I was blown away by the floral arrangements, and all I had to do was provide all the decorations to Kristi and her team and they made the whole day seamless and beautiful.
