Colleen of Divine Designs was such a pleasure to work with for my July 2012 wedding! She came recommended to me from my sister, who heard about her through multiple friends. Personal recommendations are always the best because you know this person is consistently reliable for doing an incredible job, no matter what the venue or time of year. Colleen knows flowers so well that I was able to bring in a picture of the "look" I was going for and she was able to immediately identify the best flowers to achieve that look-- flowers that would be in season and local so I could keep the price down. She created amazing centerpieces, bouquets, flowers for the cake, and a large spray arrangement for the top of my atrium-- exactly the colors and look that I wanted! Colleen was so professional, even though I had to make multiple changes to quantities and delivery locations. My wedding was no small order-- 9 bridesmaids and 9 groomsmen and two separate drop off locations, but Colleen has this down to a science. She made sure each bouquet and boutonniere was fresh and perfect, all while delivering on time and setting it up perfectly. I have since recommended Colleen to many friends and families because she is simply the best!

I thought Colleen from Divine Designs and Events did a great job providing the flowers for my wedding. I went in not really knowing what I wanted, but Colleen was able to guide me through the different types of flowers and options based on the colors we had in mind. When we realized the estimate was more than we had budgeted for flowers, Colleen was able to give us other options to make it work for us. The weekend of the wedding everything went smoothly with picking up some of the flowers, and everything else was delivered to the venue to the day of the wedding.

Our wedding flowers turned out amazing! Colleen was very willing to work with us and change things even at the last minute. in our first meeting I had no clue about flowers just new colors and some of the ones i wanted she was able to help with all the little details of the flowers and had amazing examples in the shop to help with the vision of what she was explaining. i had a flower budget set and was able to get above and beyond what i had expected for under my budget!

The flowers for my wedding were absolutely beautiful! Everything was just as I imagined. Colleen was very easy to work with and had great ideas! The bridesmaids bouquets were gorgeous and my jaw dropped when I saw mine. I had given Colleen a picture of what I wanted and it was incredible how she was able to replicate it. It was perfect!!

Divine Designs & Events does an outstanding job on wedding flowers and at very reasonable prices. Colleen, the owner, is a pleasure to work with: she's very professional, organized, and attentive to any questions or requests. She also gives great suggestions to help you with your overall vision, while keeping the price reasonable with no surprises. If you use Devine Designs & Events for your wedding, you can't go wrong!

I first met Colleen at a large Bridal show in Baltimore. Of all the florists at the large and overwhelming showcase, she immediately stood out as professional, fun and down to earth. Her familiarity with my venue (Ceresville Mansion) and ability to recall specific details about past work at the venue put me at ease as I realized she wouldn't let me forget any details! On our first meeting, I had only scattered ideas of what I wanted, and Colleen was SO patient with me, ultimately turning my few ideas into the most gorgeous arrangements I could imagine! Her consciousness of budget was especially helpful, as she assisted me with picking out blooms which gave the most "bang for your buck" and really focusing on the important details! Of course, on wedding day, Colleen hand delivered all my flowers on time and I was in absolute awe of how beautiful they were. Flowers (and your florist!!) are such a hugely important part of the planning and the "Big Day" and Colleen (as well as her husband!) are the only people I would trust! I truly can't give enough praise for her, both personally and professionally. I have even kept my own bouquet in my house because I am still so attached (...it's been almost 6 months since wedding day!)

Divine design was an amazing vendor to work with and our flowers turned out perfectly!! We had some special requests and a tight budget but Colleen made it work and we could not have been happier. I would definitely recommend her to any Maryland brides!!

I wouldn’t consider myself a typical bride. I wanted no white in my bouquet. I wanted bright colors and nothing traditional at all. And just meeting w/ Colleen, she had great ideas with the different types of natural blue, green flowers we could use in September and that would in season. I wanted blue & greens to go w/ our color theme. I had super green roses with accents of blue orchids. My bridesmaids had white roses with green spider mums & blue orchids. Our cake was white with green & blue mums which made it pop w/ color. We had green rose petals on both sides of the aisle runner. She was so flexible w/ time. We had our pictures done 4 hrs before the wedding for city pictures and she came to my hotel and dropped off our bouquets & boutonnieres and than even came back later to decorate the ceremony & reception space. I loved working with Colleen. I have told my friends who are getting married about Divine Designs & Events. She worked w/ our budget and I could easily changed or add something. Having them do our flowers was 1 less thing had to think about. I can’t not express enough how happy we were w/ the flowers!! Every other florist we went to was outside our budget and old fashion ideas. Colleen did what we wanted w/in our budget. Book them now!!

Colleen and Divine Designs & Events provided the flowers for my wedding and I could not have been happier! From the first meeting, Colleen was a pleasure to work with. She was willing and happy to work within my budget and had lots of great ideas. She gladly made changes to the proposal several times and was extremely flexible throughout the planning process. The day of the wedding the flowers arrived on time and far exceeded my expectations. Everything was BEAUTIFUL! I cannot recommend Colleen and DD&E enough!

We got married at the Tremont Grand in Baltimore in March 2012. I had a very clear image of the centerpieces that I wanted for our reception and Colleen took it to another level. When we walked into the room for the first time, all of our jaws dropped - including the planners who do hundreds of weddings a year. Our colors were yellow and white with greenery accents. We had decided on tall chrome vases with crystal draping. Colleen brought in two styles of vases to alternate between the tables and it was PERFECT! Our room looked like it was made for a celebrity. The fresh flowers on our cake were perfection and she placed them better than the photo I sent her. The bridesmaid bouquets were also better than I could have imagined and were my favorite part. My bouquet was of different shades of yellow tulips with white satin wrap. An absolute dream. We also had two urns at the alter with rose petals and floating orchids in candles down the aisle. I wish we could have our wedding all over again so I can relive the absolute beauty that Colleen created. We were lucky and did not have a budget but felt that the pricing was a steal compared to the quality, professionalism, creativity, and exceeded expectations that we received. We made a whole album dedicated to the arrangements that Colleen created because we couldnt just pick a few to print. Dont think twice, DD&E should be on your vendor list!

I was so thrilled when Colleen put my vision into reality! Ou rwedding was at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, but we had a rustic theme. I had wildflowers bouquets with lots of color and mason jars filled with wildflowers. They were STUNNING! I was thoroughly happy with Divine Design customer service, flexibility, and pricing. I was able to plan my wedding from Richmond VA where I live and felt at ease with Colleen's help.

Divine Designs was wonderful. I had a vision of what kind of flowers and ambiance I wanted and Colleen (the owner) was able to transform that vision into reality. She was very knowledgeable about all of the different kinds of flowers and helped us to pick up beautiful but cost-effective pieces. I was absolutely confident that she would deliver the final product that I had imagined. I would very HIGHLY recommend this business.

We worked with Colleen for our wedding and she was the most accomodating, creative, and helpful florist we met with by far. She was able to take our initial thoughts/wants and turn them into beautiful results that we couldn't have imagined. She takes creative liberties, while ensuring it is exactly what you wanted / pictured.
Divine Designs provides a great value at a great price and will definitely not disappoint! Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and we received so many compliments on the flowers, which were classy, fresh, and beautiful. You cannot go wrong with Divine Designs for your wedding!

Colleen at Divine Design & Events was a pleasure to work with. She kept within our budget and produced some gorgeous arrangements. My bouquet was perfect, just how I wanted it--all white with some hints of greens. I was pretty clueless about flowers so she really helped me out and found the perfect color contrasts. The guys' flowers were also perfect! She was also really responsive through email and open to my changes/additions after the contract was signed. The best part was I didn't have to worry about anything because I knew she was going to take care of it.
