Marie...I wanted to call you today to tell you what an outstanding job you did with everything! But...every time I went to pick up the phone I became emotional, so I thought it would be better today to email you....You exceeded our expectations! WOW! It was MAGICAL! You transformed The "Carlyle On The Green" into a fairytale wedding for Gina & Bobby. You can just feel the beautiful energy of the work from "IN FULL BLOOM" ....you put your heart & soul into each bouquet & centerpiece. Everything was so lovingly finished! The bridesmaids LOVED their bouquets and Gina was awestruck by her magnificent bouquet...it was "PERFECT"...extremely difficult to do with her expectations set so high...BUT...you certainly pulled out all the stops! My daughter will be talking about you for a long time to come...you created beautiful memories for the most special day of her life! When you came through the door at the house to deliver the flowers...I will never forget the expression on her face....because of you...she was glowing & beaming!!! The flowers on the pews in the church were outstanding...and the flowers on the altar...I could not stop staring at them throughout the ceremony. EVERYONE was commenting on the flowers from the church right through to the reception. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the time, effort and individual personal attention you provided for us! You are amazing Marie! I hope every bride comes to visit you at "IN FULL BLOOM"! Terry
Marie the owner of In Full Bloom did an absolutely fantastic job at my daughter’s wedding which was held at The Bourne Mansion. I couldn't have been happier with how the centerpieces, bridesmaids' bouquets, bride's bouquet, corsages, boutonnieres, and flower girls flowers came out. She even did the flowers for the wedding cake which made the cake look elegant. Marie showed us a sample of what the flowers would look like and when they were on the tables they looked even better. Marie went above and beyond what we expected, and everyone complimented on how nicely everything coordinated with the flowers. She kept the arrangements elegant had a nice mixture of flowers and really captured the theme of our wedding. She added candle light and flowers to each mantle that made it look like something out of magazine.
The pricing was more than fair for the quality of arrangements we got. Marie and her team did a great job of making sure the flowers held up as well as looked good. The quality of the flowers were the best I have seen, they were so fresh. I took flowers home and are enjoying them.
The set up and delivery were great as well too. Very professional, gracious and accommodating is how I would describe them. I rarely write reviews, but our florist was so great I had to write about our experience. I would definitely recommend them for anyone's wedding.
We wanted a vintage and romantic look and we certainly got it. They did a fabulous job with our flowers. The color palette and textures were perfect. Very please with this vendor and definitely recommend them. Thanks Marie and staff!
I can't recommend In Full Bloom highly enough. Marie was terrific to work with and all of the floral arrangements came out exactly the way I envisioned them. I would go back to In Full Bloom in a heartbeat!
I can’t even put into words how happy I am that we decided to use In Full Bloom for our wedding flowers. My parents live in the neighborhood so we had been in many times to get flowers for special occasions and we knew that they do a good job. Chris was a pleasure to work with and after showing her some pictures of what I liked, she was able to create tablescapes and bouquets that were beyond beautiful. They make sure to take the time to work with you and tailor the flowers to your individual style. It is clear that they truly care about what they do and take pride in their work. My guests could not stop raving about how beautiful the flowers were. I would absolutely recommend using them for your wedding.
What an absolute pleasure dealing with Marie from "In Full Bloom". From what I have seen on this website, most reviews come from the brides. As the mother of the bride, in this case, I just had to write about how exquisite the flowers were at my daughters wedding.
With that said, I am hoping that this fact will hold a great amount of value in what I am about to say. And because I'm not as young as those who have written here before me and I myself have had many years of experience in business myself. This should solidify how I feel about Marie as a wonderful talented business women to deal with.
Through my years of experience I can tell when someone has great experience, confidence in their work and expertise in their field. I can tell when that business person has respect for their clients and patience to explain the details of the job they do, always willing to answer questions. And so importantly as well, is that Marie and her staff just have this great gift of talent. Which is so evident in the flower arrangements Marie makes and how she treats her clients.
She treats every wedding or party she is working on as a tribut to what that clients sees in their hearts desire. She did so for my daughters wedding. The bouquets on every table were breathtaking. As well as how they created a mood for the type of venue we had the wedding at. The table flower arrangements went so well, with the feel of the ballroom at the Bourne Mansion, were we had the wedding, they actually enhanced they they era of the room. As beautiful as that reception ballroom is, without the arrangements Marie made up to be placed on the tables, the room would not have looked they same. Without those flowers she helped us chose to make up the arrangements, that were placed on the tables, the room would have looked very bland with no dimension or color. What Marie did, was she brought up the total effect about 100%.
During my visits to the Bourne Massion prior to my daughters wedding, I saw other florists setting up the room for the wedding of that day. It was then that I realized how important having the right florist was to do the flowers. I am so glad we chose to hire In Full Bloom. There was no comparison from what I saw of those other florists, to the flowers Marie and her team had made up for the wedding we had for my daughter wedding and reception. That same quailty and beauty carried over to the bouquet my daughter walked down the isle with, as with the bridesmaids bouquets, and the suggested choice of flower for the groom and his groomsmen. Which were also all just as beautiful and carefully put together. And there was this huge opulent flower arrangement when you first entered the mansion, on the center hall table which greeted every guest coming in, setting the mood for the wedding.
Marie's taste is impectible. The quality of her flowers that she insists on working with are the freshest you could get. And the range and choices of flowers that she makes available are just so wonderful. She will never let you make a bad choice or let you down in any way. She and her staff worked so very hard in what they did for my daughters wedding. As they would for every party they work on. As well as they all are a pleasure to deal with. Dealing with In Full Bloom, was one aspect of this wedding that caused no problems no headaches, just a pleasure to deal with them.
Marie did an incredible job. I brought her all of my ideas and she executed beyond my greatest dreams. Such a pleasure to work with and quality second to none.
Chris and In Full Bloom did such an amazing job with our wedding on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at Mansion at Timber Point. We couldn't have been happier with the service they provided. The flowers were more beautiful than I could have imagined. They helped make our wedding a dream come true. We highly recommend them to others for future events. Everything was perfect!!!
Simply amazing! Love Chris she is an amazing designer my flowers were stunning
I loved working with Marie at In Full Bloom. She really took the time to understand what I liked and help me bring my vision to life. She was very hands on and did all deliveries and set-ups herself which left me feeling very confident. Would highly recommend to any bride!
I just want to say thank you! The flower arrangements you created for our wedding were absolutely stunning. Each piece that you and your staff designed for our special day was beautiful and elegant. We could not have asked for a more talented, professional, and accommodating florist to work with. Thank you for all of your hard work, expertise, and eye-for-perfection. When I originally thought of having fan bouquets, never did I envision just how exceptionally gorgeous they would have turned out. I know that in future years, I will enjoy looking at our wedding pictures and reminiscing about the flowers that made our wedding so special. Thank you again!
Words can’t express how amazing the flowers were for our daughter's wedding. Breathtaking -a word I have never used before. Every floral was unbelievably creative and beautiful, intricate and unique tying in all of the elements we had talked about! There was summer, fall, girls’ dresses, men's tuxes- blended in so perfectly. I always said that I just wanted everything to be "right". Nothing standing out and pulling you away from what you should be seeing. Obviously Marie understood. After seeing the sample arrangement, we were completely confident Marie really got our vision and how to execute that vision. When we walked into the Carlyle, we were speechless and teary. The newlywed table had 3 small, low arrangements with all the textures, colors and elements of the larger arrangements. The table arrangements completely floored us as I never envisioned how gorgeous and flowing they could be. Like the bouquets, there were succulents, slipper orchids, small kale, roses, winterberries, ivy, hydrangea, and more. The room had warm, comfortable feeling as if it was a dinner party in our home that I have never seen at another wedding. Everyone says how beautiful, elegant and classic it looked due to the flowers and candlesticks. We planned and did everything we could to make this wedding the one we hoped and dreamed of all of our lives for our girl. It was the best day of our lives. Marie's talent and creative vision did this for us. The beautiful flowers everywhere we looked tied everything together and made it all perfectly "right”. We were going for classic and elegant and she gave us just that. It is as if Marie knew our daughter forever reflected her in every piece. In Full Bloom gave the entire wedding a beauty that is beyond words My eyes are misty again thinking about our first joyful look at the bridal bouquet and when we were dazzled by the ballroom. We can only thank Marie and her amazing staff from the bottom of our hearts. They have truly given us a treasure!
I do not like too many flowers and most weddings have large floral arrangements. We love candles. So,I needed someone who could bring my vision to life with a bit of professional help as to what would look great. We had seen samples of our centerpieces and flowers, but I would have never imagined that they would look so great the day of. Our guests were blown away with our centerpieces and the amount of flowers used for the entire wedding was just right.
I am long overdue to write this review, but Marie and her team at In Full Bloom are amazing!!
When I visited Marie at her shop in Farmingdale over 3 years ago, I'll admit I was a bit nervous for the sheer fact that I didn't really know what kind of flowers I was looking for. I was working with a fall theme, but didn't know the specifics on colors, flowers, centerpieces, etc. I had visited a few other florists prior to my visit with Marie and they asked me for a great deal of specifics on my preferences, which I really didn't have. During my meeting with Marie, she set my anxieties to rest. We casually went through a number of photos and ideas - the whole time she was taking mental notes on my preferences.
I came back a short time after and she compiled some ideas for my review - it was almost like she had read my mind and I barely said a word! Every arrangement was exactly what I was looking for! She was an absolute pleasure to work with - all of us brides out there know we can get frazzled sometimes, but Marie's calming presence and demeanor made the process so much easier.
From a quality perspective - her flowers are unmatched. The centerpieces, the bouquets, everything was GORGEOUS! I loved working with Marie so much that I referred her to 3 other friends who were equally as pleased with her work!
Marie - thank you again for providing some of the most beautiful flowers I have seen for our special day.

I contacted Chris at In Full Bloom when we decided to have our wedding in NY. A friend had used IFB for her wedding and her flowers were beautiful, so I knew I would get great quality. When Chris said she delivered to NYC, I was sold. We had only minor hiccups (to be fair, I was planning from CA so communication wasn't the easiest), but Chris worked with my budget to create my vision, then had me come in to the shop when I was in NY to show me some flowers and, of course, they were gorgeous and exactly what I had imagined. The day of, the flowers showed up a little later than I was told they would, but everything still went fairly smoothly. Also, heads up, the final payment is due in cash or check, which was something I hadn't noticed in the contract, especially since the deposit was able to be paid by credit card. All in all, beautiful flowers, the price was right, and the service was good!
Amazing job done by Marie and her crew! I did not have to think about anything on the day of my wedding. She did everything and more for me. The bridesmaid's bouquets, as well as my own, were so much better than what we originally discussed and they were so big!
Marie was also very creative. Once I gave her an idea or concept I was going with she came up with unique ideas on how to follow through. She also knew I loved candellabra's and was able to have a new design ready and set up for the final viewing before the wedding. She also had experience working at my venue, The Bourne Mansion, before so it made it easy for her to know the set up and what was needed for the day of the reception.
Overall, In Full Bloom did an amazing job. They were on time and professional. I would definitely recommend them to any Bride in Long Island.
Maria did my flowers and she and her staff executed my flowers exactly how I wanted. Some of the things
I didn't get to see until my wedding day came out so beautiful. Maria is calm, professional and easy to work with. You will love working with her.
In Full Bloom did an exceptional job for my wedding. I am not a huge flower person and had a pretty limited budget-- I thought they would not take me seriously because of how little my job was. They made me feel like my job was the only one in the world. For the cost they went above my expectations. A week before the event I had to add 8 tables-- they had no problem accommodating. I asked that my bouquet be able to be placed into a vase so I didn't have to worry about it. They took care of it and I used it as a center piece for our table.
Marie is beyond fantastic to work with. She's smart, thorough, and can bring your flower ideas to life.
Guests were ranting and raving about how beautiful centerpieces, bouquets and other arrangements were. The staff was friendly and reliable.
