After getting engaged, we quickly set our sights on a December wedding. The location of our wedding was ideal for us, though we wanted the venue to look like rustic meets Christmas theme. Curly Willow had been highly recommended by multiple trusted sources, and now that all is (unfortunately!) over, I could not agree more. From the first moments of planning, it became obvious that Jim's vision was going to help capture our dream of a white Christmas wedding. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and when given just a few of my ideas, was able to turn our venue into a wedding that belonged in a magazine. The process of working with Curly Willow was stress-free (which is a huge plus for a bride and those involved!) and as the wedding date came closer, I had not one concern that they would help us with our dream come true. Even as we made changes throughout the process, Jim always maintained a positive attitude and set our minds at ease. We received countless compliments on the decorations (Christmas trees, barn doors framed with lighted curly willow, wreaths, pillars wrapped in garland, beautiful garland draped over the bar and elegant center pieces) and there is no doubt that without Jim and the team at Curly Willow, our wedding would not even the event that it was: everything my husband and I could have ever wanted! Highly recommend Curly Willow and we cannot thank them enough for all they did for us; our pictures are stunning!

Jim at the Curly Willow did a wonderful job of making my vision come to life. The execution was perfect and the comment I still get is about the unique artichokes in all the bouquets. Everyone loved them! He really made my colors pop and was professional, detailed and a pleasure to work with. Such beautiful work for all our wedding florals.

I used Curly Willow as my wedding florist and our flowers were absolutely beautiful! Curly Willow was easy to work with and professional. My husband and I would recommend Curly Willow to anyone in need of a florist!

Curly Willow and especially Jim, made all my dreams come true. Not only was my bouquet and the bridesmaid's bouquets gorgeous, he also decorated our ceremony venue and did our centerpieces. All the flowers were amazing and everything tied in together seamlessly. Jim is amazing to work with and can take your vision and make it a reality.

The team at Curly Willow were phenomenal. After my first meeting with them I didn't even bother to look at other florists. They weren't worried about my budget but instead asked what my vision was. After Jim worked up his ideas he gave me price per bouquet - if I said its a little too high he gladly adjusted which flowers we could use to meet my budget.
I also called several times along the way to change how many corsages I needed and to add baby's breath for the decor, it was never a problem.

Curly Willow handled our event like it was the only event they had booked. Jim was able to take our concept and colors and match them with flowers that gave our wedding the most elegant ambiance. I never wanted to put my bouquet down!!! My wedding party looked amazing! Wish I could upload a few pics! I wholeheartedly recommend this vendor for ANY occasion. (We are ready to plan our 1st year anniversary.)

I would highly recommend Curly Willow to anyone getting married in the area. I talked to MANY florists while planning my wedding and Curly Willow was by far the best value in the area. Not only that, they were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. They created GORGEOUS bouquets and flower arrangements that far exceeded my expectations. I received so many compliments on our bouquets. If I were to do it all over again I would choose Curly Willow in a heartbeat. :)

I set a budget and was happy that Mr. Shawl stuck to it for me! Not only did I have beautiful arrangements, everything arrived on time! I was very happy that I didn't have to sacrifice beauty with my tight budget. No matter how much or how little you spend, Curly Willow will make sure it's beautiful!!

I got so many compliments on my wedding bouquets and reception centerpieces! Jim was very easy to work with and had a lot of ideas to help me stay within my budget. He set up the centerpieces and came back for them at the end of the night, something that saved my family a lot of work. We are very appreciative of the Curly Willow team and all their hard work that went into our special day! We'd recommend them to anyone!

We chose Curly Willow as our florist for our June 29th wedding. I had given Jim some pictures and ideas and he just ran with it. I was blown away by what he came up with. He used all of my suggestions to create beautiful and unique bouquets (they smelled delicious, too). We were more than pleased with the service we received by Curly Willow. They do extraordinary work!

Our flowers were beautiful! I honestly had no idea what to expect since I do not know a lot of specifics about flowers but they were fantastic! I brought on pictures of what I liked and he made it happen. Highly recommended!

Curly Willow was amazing! The first time we met with Jim we had no knowledge of flowers whatsoever and only a vague idea of what we envisioned for our wedding flowers. Jim quickly understood our overall vision for our wedding and was instrumental in making sure that our flowers played a starring role. He was amazing to work with every step of the way and made sure that all of the smallest details were absolutely perfect for us! We called Jim the day before the wedding in need of flowers for the flowergirl to toss and he came to the rescue and brought beautiful fresh rosemary for her! The herb was already integrated into the boutonnieres and was the perfect tough! Thanks Jim for helping to make our day so special!!

CurlyWillow was excellent to work with from start to finish. I had met with several other vendors before finding CurlyWillow, and once we met with Jim, there was just no comparison. He worked with my budget, gave me ideas, and made me feel comfortable. Throughout the months I was able to contact him numerous times with questions and I received VERY quick responses. I never felt for a second like things werent under control. He personally delivered the flowers on my wedding day and they were perfect. I would recomment to anyone!

I would highly recommend the Curly Willow! I met with Jim early in my wedding planning. I told him what flowers and colors I liked and he immediately had a vision of what he could do. After my first meeting with Jim I felt confident I could count on him to design beautiful bouquets for my wedding. I was able to get all of the types of flowers I wanted at reasonable prices. Other florists wanted to charge outrageous prices for some of the flowers I wanted. Jim did a fantastic job with all of the flowers for our wedding – the bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and altar flowers. I would definitely use the Curly Willow again for any floral needs!

I recently had the Curry Willow provide the flowers for my wedding at Hidden Valley Resort in Somerset, PA. Jim prepared the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, hairpiece, and ceremony decorations. Sunflowers were the main focus and they were simply gorgeous! I loved every aspect of these arrangements and they photographed so well. Jim was great to work with, remaining calm and focused when I decided I wanted a flower in my hair, without being sure of what I wanted. He was prompt with the day of delivery and the flowers were very fresh. I 100% recommend the Curry Willow to anyone celebrating in the area.

I am so excited that Jim at The Curly Willow was able to be a part of my wedding day! From our initial meeting to the finishing touches on the arbor that he decorated, Jim was wonderful to work with. He listened to what I wanted, then made it happen, all within a completely reasonable budget. My wedding bouquet was the most beautiful arrangement I've ever seen . . . I loved it so much that I'm having it preserved and framed! He also designed and decorated the arbor that provided the backdrop for our ceremony. It looked gorgeous and completed the "scene" we were trying to set. In addition, he provided all the guest table centerpieces, which corresponded with the colors of both mine and the bridesmaids bouquets. My guests thought they were lovely and I spent part of the evening telling people about Jim and The Curly Willow! I would most highly recommend this florist for any wedding or special occasion and I know my family and I will continue to spread the word about our wonderful experience. Thanks for making my wedding so beautiful!

The Curly Willow was beyond words wonderful to work with! I had actually fired another florist due to poor customer service and exorbitant prices before finding them. I wish I had found the Curly Willow first!
Jim was so great about taking the time to sit with us to make our arrangements and decorations exactly how we hoped while providing extremely helpful input with how to stay within our budget. He truly knows his business and his product. He is also very skilled with keeping a detail obsessed bride calm :)
I first met with them on a Tuesday and mentioned I needed the initial quote by Friday to discuss with the family. He said no problem. Friday morning, Jim dropped the proposal off to our house because he did not have time to get it into the mail. THAT is true service.
I have recommended CW to two other brides since our August wedding.
We will absolutely be using them for floral services for future events.
Also, while you are there, try their gourmet coffee-yum!
