Let me preface by saying that I am not the kind of person who is good at visualizing things; namely, visualizing the way a venue space could look! Mary and Dawn were fantastic and worked with me and my mom every step of the way, "dumbing things down" for me so I could understand exactly what would be out and how it would "feel" to my guests! That was really helpful; I never felt talked down to or that my opinion was overlooked, and I sincerely appreciated that! Another thing that I have to say, if you're considering A Garden Party, is that if you want people who are EASILY accessible, all the time, go with these girls. They replied to every single one of my frantic emails and helped me feel better when I was having second thoughts about my table numbers, arrangements, etc. They are incredible florists--the space looked amazing, much better than I could have ever pictured in my own head!--and through it all they were friendly, accomodating, and just so unbelievably incredible to work with. Even when everything was over, I found a hand-written thank you note in my bag saying how much they loved doing our wedding. I will recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone who needs a florist, especially a bride, just because of how wonderful it was to know that I didn't have to worry about them or their contribution to the wedding; I never thought for a second that they were unprepared or weren't completely invested in my wedding. They had never been to my venue before, but took the time to look at every single one of the pictures I sent (of every single angle of the place, haha) and printed out their own pictures from the website so they could see exactly what they were working with. I just can't say enough great things about them, and I'm SO happy that they were our florist! Great job, girls, and thanks again for everything!! It was fantastic!!!!!! :)

We selected A Garden Party because they came highly recommended from our photographers (Art + Life) who had worked with them before. We never even looked into anyone else. Their work is stunning and beyond creative! The visions in my head couldn't even compare to the beautiful floral arrangements they provided for our wedding day! I was speechless when I first saw my bouquet and the reception arrangements were beyond beautiful. Everything was perfect!

The ladies at A Garden Party were so easy to work with. They were so helpful and had great ideas leading up to the wedding. The flowers looked absolutely gorgeous the day of the wedding. Everything was exactly as I had hoped it would be!

All the ideas I had in my head came to life on my wedding day thanks to these amazing girls! They truly love what they do and it shows in their work. There aren't enough words for me to explain how perfect my pergola COVERED in vines and flowers for our ceremony was it almost brought tears to my eyes it was so beautiful and everyone would not stop raving about it. All the flowers in general everyone was raving about!! These girls know how to take your vision and make it come to life so that your wedding is everything you imagined!! So laid back and easy to work with I would reccomend them one million times over and I continue to use them for floral arrangments for everything now!! Thanks Mary, Dawn, and the rest of the crew you are great!

Theses sisters are magical. I had a very simple down to earth vision, wanted to use local products as available, and also wanted surprise elements for the bouquets and bouts. I purposely didn't want to know what the bouquets would look like until the day of my wedding!! Gorgeous!!!! Talented, magical, great prices, professional and creative. Thank you

I found Mary and Dawn while researching via the internet and I couldn't have been more pleased with the find. After speaking to Mary on the phone, she sent a comprehensive plan of ideas and cost estimate. Once I knew they were the florist for me, they were amazing to work with. They actually introduced me to Pinterest, which revolutionized my planning! I live in North Jersey and they were down South, but via Pinterest and the phone, they were able to capture all of my ideas and make my ideas come to life. I can't express how beautiful the flowers they designed were. I received compliments on all pieces--from my bouquet to the centerpieces. My aisle decor doubled as flowers on the bar during the reception. My jaw dropped when I saw the ceremony and reception decor--the flowers literally made the space come alive. I would highly recommend them to any South Jersey Bride.

Dawn and Mary from A Garden Party helped make my ceremony and reception perfect!! I could not have asked for better florists and would refer everyone here! We had an initial meeting with Mary and from there, they were willing to make any changed along the way, I appreciate all of their help! Flowers/arrangements/bouquets were gorgeous, guests are still talking about them!!

The bouquets were gorgeous! I got a ton of complements on them! I absolutely loved them! The boutonnieres and corsages for the groom, groomsmen, parents, grandparents, etc. were lovely as well. They came out exactly as I pictured them. We also got our church flowers from here and those matched perfectly with the dresses and the church.

I could not have dreamt of a better florist for my wedding. I was thrilled with their work, and I'm still getting compliments from our guests.
I was concerned about finding a good florist for my 2K budget. Dawn and Mary worked magic. Not only did they provide amazing arrangements, I felt like they designed something unique for my wedding. There was nothing "cookie cutter" about their work. They took the time to ask the right questions, to figure out my taste, and then they knew just how to accomodate it. In addition to being impressed with their artistry, I found them easy to work with and highly professional. I highly recommend A Garden Party.
For anyone who may be put off by the drive to their studio in Elmer, NJ (especially Philly brides), it is well worth the trip!!!

I was married in South Jersey and was looking for a florist that could help me with the details that I had in mind for my Indian wedding. From the initial meeting, Mary was attentive and listened carefully to my ideas while adding her own suggestions (without being pushy). Given that it was an Indian wedding, she asked questions and provided for specific requests, such as puja flowers. Leading up to the wedding, she was available with ideas and suggestions. On the day of, I was blown away with the creations and details. So many guests commented on the beauty of our floral arrangements and how they enhanced our venue. I had incorporated peacocks and lanterns into my design idea and Mary included the colors/accents in a tasteful way. I had a pretty tight budget and I was also impressed with how carefully Mary worked with me to make that a reality. Book A Garden Party. You won't regret it. Oh, I forgot! The quality of the flowers themselves was outstanding. We had taken some flowers from the wedding home and they were going strong a week later.

The sisters at A Garden Party did a wonderful job making the flowers at our wedding fit in perfectly with the relaxed and comfortable beach theme we were going for. All of the arrangements were gorgeous and above and beyond anything we had imagined. The little touches with the star fish and shells that they added were greatly appreciated and made everything just that much nicer.

A Garden Party was an amazing florist to work with. They were able to offer me everything I wanted and more for 2/3 the price other companies wanted. Dawn and Mary helped me come up with designs for things from the ideas I had. I knew I wanted lanterns and Peonies but how do you decorate a ceremony and reception with that? They had us to their shop one day and showed us what they were thinking and we played around with things until we got it just right. That was 6 months before the wedding. The rest of the planning was done through email and all seemed to be a big surprise on the wedding day. I felt like I was on one of those tv shows were they surprise you at your own wedding. A Garden Party was so proffesional and had everything and the right numbers of things at the right plance and right time. The flowers were so fresh and so bright. Everything they put together went perfectly. These were two sisters who's services were very personal and not corporate. Just what I wanted for my wedding. Thank you!!

I couldn't be happier with the flowers Mary and Dawn arranged for my wedding. They were very patient listening to my ideas and turned them into reality. The bouquets were better than I could have imagined and they smelled amazing! The centerpieces were creative and original and fit in with our theme perfectly. They even added accents to my decor to pull everything together. I highly recommend a Garden Party for any event!

Everything about them is fantastic! They are so professional and will help you choose the perfect flowers that fit you and what you are looking for. Their arrangements are absolutely gorgeous! I have seen so many center pieces and bouquets working in a banquet hall, when it was time for me to get married, there was no question that I was going to have them do my flowers! They are the BEST!
