Six words: Monica Chimes is an incredible florist. She and her team, especially Stacy (who worked for David Tutera), do an incredible job of bringing a bride’s vision to life. During the planning stages I did my due diligence by meeting with a handful of florists in the area, getting bids, and hearing how they would create what I had imagined for my flowers. A few of those florists were gruff when I asked if I could see a sample, others nice, but NONE made me feel like I was the only bride they were working with other than Monica. Monica and I sat down, discussed the basics; colors, number of people in the bridal party, number of tables, budget, etc, and then she took me through tons of different flower options in books and in her refrigerator to find the perfect combinations. She didn’t hesitate when I asked if she could make a sample centerpiece for my MIL (who was paying for the flowers), my mom, and me to check out. The three of us came a week later and I was blown away. It was exactly as I had imagined with floating candles accenting the flowers, and orchids floating in the vase. Seeing the sample confirmed my feeling that Monica was the right choice. Monica and I chatted a bunch of times throughout the eight months or so before the wedding about changing a flower here and there, the layout for high and low centerpieces, and even when I had to cut a few things to save on the budget she was able to figure out another way to make it work. The entire experience made me feel so at ease that I knew everything would be perfect on the wedding day. This was actually the only part of the wedding planning that I didn’t have to lose one wink of sleep over. On the day of the wedding the flowers were delivered exactly on time, Stacy even surprised me by coming to the salon to hand deliver my bridal bouquet and give me a big hug and best wishes from Monica (who was on location setting up the church and reception venue). Everything about this experience was perfect. The only thing I was bummed out about was that I had to leave for my honeymoon and couldn’t enjoy the flowers for the week after the wedding! :) Many of my guests took the centerpieces and bouquets home and said they lasted for 7-10 days! If you are looking for a quality florist with quality flowers who will give you her undivided attention and make you feel like she is actually part of the bridal party, go with Monica Chimes. She will make your flower dreams come true! (Sorry, that was cheesy, but it’s the truth). :) Happy Wedding!

Can you imagine how amazing the centerpieces are when the employees of the venue, who are setting up the tables for the dinner are saying they have never seen such "elegant, beautiful, flower arrangements?" That's exactly what happened at my daughter's wedding this weekend. When we opened the door to go into dinner our breath was taken away. Monica Chimes and her assistant Stacy arranged an assortment of tropical flowers that cascaded down from tall slender glass palace vases. The arrangements consisted of birds-of-paradise, orange and red heliconias, orchids, and red hanging amarnathus. Large tropical foliage was integrated throughout the design. The bride and groom had the same flowers set on top of their table cascading down the front of the table. There were candles and orchid petals on the table with the placecards and a special table set up with Iris', as requested by my daughter. Every guest (including men) commented that they have never seen such magnificient, extrodinary centerpieces anywhere. The bridal bouquet was magnificient and fit my daughter perfectly. Her bridesmaids all want to save their bouquets forever. Even the groomsmen's and groom boutonnierres matched the bridal party bouquets. Monica understood exactly what my daughter was looking for and far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Monica Chimes floral for all you floral needs.

Monica Chimes is truly a gifted florist. My wedding was this past August and all of the arrangements that were made for my wedding were breathtakingly beautiful (bouquets and center pieces)! From the moment you meet Monica and her staff to the day of your wedding you will know that she is very professional and you will not be unsatisfied.
I remember walking into her shop and sitting with Monica and not knowing one thing about flowers. What I did know...was my vision of what I wanted my day to look like. Monica sat with me and listened to me without rushing me out the door (unlike some places). She took flowers out and showed me what they were and how she would incorporate them. When I saw my bridal bouquet for the very first time on the day of my wedding, I was speechless and brought to tears. It was like she went into my mind and saw the vision I tried to explain. Who knew flowers could make you that emotional!

I was lucky enough to have Monica Chimes do the flowers for my wedding in June 2009. She took the time to find out exactly what i wanted, and came up with some great ideas that i wouldnt have thought of myself. I already knew that her flower arrangements were amazing as i had used her on several occasions previously...in fact most people that i know in westchester have heard of Monica and would not hesitate to call her if they needed something beautiful!! Her arrangements are consistently classy and always inspired! She has done many weddings for friends of mine, and she even did the flowers when my mother got married a few years ago. When in comes to creating the perfect mood for a wedding, or any special event for that matter, Monica Chimes knows her stuff!!!!
