The challenge in writing a review for Petit Fleur is that I don't know where to start; whether reviewing the planning process, the end result, Corrina, or her staff, I have nothing but glowing reviews.
First Impression: For my first meeting with Corrina, I brought a few pictures from a magazine and was probably all over the place in describing my 'vision.' Corrina is an exceptional listener, and after my rambling she articulated back to me quite succinctly exactly what it was I wanted… 'rustic, romantic, whimsical.' Hearing those words made me realize how good she is at understanding what we brides are trying to say, and it was clear to me that I wanted book her for my wedding.
The Venue: As Petit Fleur is located in Ferndale, Michigan, I was a bit nervous to ask if she would do a semi-destination wedding in northern Michigan, about five hours away. Upon mentioning that the venue was out of town, Corrina put me at ease by sharing the many venues they've done all over the country, and she was genuinely delighted to decorate what was a new venue for Petit Fleur - Mountain Flowers Lodge at the Homestead in Glen Arbor.
Planning: Seamless. I met with her periodically and often emailed her new ideas and shared pictures from magazines; she was happy to incorporate whatever flowers and décor that I wanted. Corrina provides the detail of her initial estimate upfront, and she was consistently cost conscious so as to stay within our budget. If I asked about a flower that was particularly pricey, Corrina took the time to explain where they are grown, why they are costly, and offer some perfect substitutes that were much less expensive.
Though I was excited to plan my wedding, the task of finding the right decor was overwhelming. Corrina showed me her linens, chargers, chairs, vases, candles (and the list goes on); what a huge weight lifted off my shoulders - she was happy to take care of anything I needed. Corrina is also very open to using new décor outside of what she has in stock; for example, we saw a picture with milk glass vases that we both loved, and Corrina was able to find vintage vases to add to her collection that looked outstanding on our head table. Corrina's attention to detail and consistent responsiveness are best in class.
The End Result: Breathtaking. Corrina brought all of the flowers to Glen Arbor from down state and made all of the arrangements right on site which resulted in fresh, gorgeous arrangements. The centerpieces for the reception were exceptional. The grooms boutonnieres were perfect - very unique - and the bridesmaid bouquets were lovely - exactly what I had wanted. I didn't know what to expect for my bouquet, as I had provided Corrina with a picture of a bouquet I loved from a wedding with a much different color scheme than ours. Corrina couldn't have made the vision a reality better than she did - my bouquet was more beautiful than I ever imagined it could be. The size, colors, dimension, and use of unique flowers made it (in my admittedly biased opinion) the most stunning bouquet I had ever seen. Corrina even took the time to hand-deliver my bouquet to me; that small gesture made it so personal.
My wedding was two months ago, and I am still hearing from guests about how beautiful the flowers were! What a pleasure it was to work with Corrina, and I wish her the best of luck as she continues to flawlessly exceed already high expectations!
Big thanks to Corrina and her staff for making my wedding reception gorgeous! Corrina listened to what I wanted and did not miss a beat in her execution! All of her suggestions were spot on and helpful. She took very good care of my husband and I. The centerpieces were glamorous and elegant. My bouquet was stunning! I highly recommend Petit Fleur! You will not be disappointed!!
I don't even know where to start! My wedding was this past weekend and we are beyond happy with the service and work of Petit Fleur. Corrina has been so personable, helpful and creative throughout this whole process. Whenever I needed anything or had any questions she was always there for me with answers. She worked with my budget and made suggestions so that I could still make my vision work. During our meetings, I described what I had in mind and she made it happen! When we walked into the ballroom on the day of our wedding we were blown away by how STUNNING the flowers and decorations looked! It was exactly what I had been dreaming about. I would recommend Petit Fleur to any bride-to-be. You will be extremely happy with your decision.
I used Petit Fleur as a vendor for both linens and flowers for my recent wedding at the DIA. Despite the fact that I was doing most of the planning long distance, working with Corrina was easy thanks to her highly responsive and attentive nature. Any bride will appreciate this after dealing with many vendors that do not have a similar attention to detail.
Corinna took my ideas and made them happen, even though it was a unique floral design she had never tackled before, and accomplished my overall look within a set budget. In addition, she was honest and gave her opinion and helped suggest some linens that really made the floral design pop.
Corrina is someone I could fully put my trust in even though I never saw a floral mock-up. When it came to my bouquet, she was able to meld a number of bouquet ideas I shared into something I was absolutely in love with on my wedding day.
I definitely recommend Petit Fleur to any bride looking for standout floral and event design, and in particular those who may be planning a Detroit area wedding from out of town and need someone who is truly dependable .
Corinna was recommended to me by my unbelievable wedding planner, Kathy Byrum. We had a strange request for our decor, and Kathy believed that Corinna had the talent and the creative juices to pull the whole thing off.
When you choose a themed wedding, it can be difficult and scary, because if the theme isn't done well enough, it just comes off as cheesy and tacky. Oh goodness, did Corinna do just the opposite. We asked for her to decorate our entire wedding from top to bottom as a dark Steampunk masquerade, and not only that, we asked her to do it without showing us anything. We wanted everything to be a complete surprise.
It was terrifying to put our entire wedding decor blindly into the hands of someone else, but from the moment we met Corinna, we had complete faith that she, if anyone, could pull it off. She did everything from the Ceremony to the Reception. She even did our flowers! We had another vendor we were looking at who was going to do these big feather bouquets for us (we decided to forgo flowers due to restrictions at the Grand Hotel) and when we told Corinna what we wanted, she said she could do it for us for a fraction of the price. While I was hesitant at first, we agreed, and I am so happy I did. I cried when I saw my bouquet the morning of. I just couldn't get over how perfect, and unique and beautiful it was. Let me tell you, I have never in my life seen a bouquet quite like it.
Corinna's decorations for the ceremony were beyond superb. They were so incredible we actually had a large crowd of strangers in the distance taking photos of the ceremony and posting them on Instagram! Yeah, it was so amazing that complete strangers couldn't help but gawk and awe and share pictures of the event with their friends.
The reception...how do I even begin to explain it's magnificence? We had people that work at the Grand, who have hosted thousands of weddings, come and take pictures and tell us that they'd never seen anything quite like it, and certainly nothing as cool or amazing. That's right, Corinna did such an unreal job that other people who see wedding after wedding were in shock and awe at its beauty and originality.
All of our guests were so blown away. Everyone unanimously agreed that they had never seen or been to such an incredible wedding, and they probably wouldn't ever again. Corinna's attention to detail did not go unnoticed, and let me tell you, everyone, in the wedding and complete strangers, noticed.
I saw Corinna at the end of the night, and all I could really say was, "Corinna, how did you guys do it? How did you do everything so perfectly? How did you, without ever showing us what you were doing, and surprising us (like we asked you to) know exactly what we wanted? How did you capture our special day so spot on?"
Magic, I'm pretty certain is the answer. Well, that and an amazing amount of talent and creativity.
If you want a day that no one will ever forget, and I don't mean just your guests, but complete and utter strangers, Corinna is the decorator for you. She managed to blow away not just our wedding guests, but all of Mackinac Island.
Every bride wants a wedding that is truly, 100% unique and original, and just mind-glowingly gorgeous. Corinna gave us just that.
I found Petit Fleur on the Knot and as soon as I met with Corrina, the owner, I knew it was a great match. She had creative and inspiring ideas that played off of my wedding colors and theme. She was upfront about pricing of flowers and when they would be in season. She was always easy to contact throughout our hectic wedding season.
When it came to the wedding day, I was blown away when I walked into the reception. They made everything I imagined come true with the centerpieces, bouquets, uplighting, linens, and drapery. We could not have been more happy with the service we got.
I know everyone says this, the guests at our wedding are still talking about what a wonderful time they had and how perfect everything looked. I was a very organized bride, paying attention to every single detail, taking on many tasks myself, because I had a specific vision in mind and I was a little bit of a control freak. I was referred to Petit Fleur by my cousin, who was using Corrina's services for her wedding. Initially, we were reaching out to Corrina for our flowers, not realizing, how much more she really offers. Upon our first meeting, Corrina really listen to what we were looking for and she was very detailed and organized, making the entire experience less stressful for us. My now husband and I decided to not only working with Corrina for our flowers, but to also use her services for linens, chargers and chiavari chairs. Why not make things easier and get everything you need at one place!? She has a huge selection of linens, chargers and chairs and although we were having a traditional wedding, we wanted something different for our venue. We picked out linens that were embellished and beautiful, and our chairs and chargers really popped and stood out, and our flowers....I could just go on and on about them. They really tied into our table setting making everything look absolutely stunning. Our centerpieces...my bouquets...our bridesmaid bouquets, flower girls, boutonnieres, everything, was dead on and perfect. I have a love for flowers, especially stephanotis, and Corrina incorporated them into my bouquet beautifully. I picked up rhinestone picks and broaches, giving her very little detail on how I wanted them use, and I have to say, it was the prettiest bouquet I've ever seen. Looking at photos, everything photographed so well, which is also important. I have to give props to Corrina's hubby, Matt. He's so nice and like Corrina, he has awesome suggestions! They are such a great team. I worked with quite a few vendors, and I wish everyone was as accommodating, patient and as professional as Corrina and Matt. I would recommend them, hands down, for any event.
Working with Petit Fleur was an amazing experience. I was referred by one of my friends, a recent bride whose wedding looked amazing. After interviewing a few florist, I met Corrina and it was instant gratification. Unlike the previous florists, she knew my venue so well including the set up as well as how Henry Ford Museum functions. What stood out the most was how she depicted the venue and how my decor should be. More specifically, she described to me how a canoply was perfect given a beautiful chandelier that hung at the "alter" in detail that was very impressive. It was almost magical. During the preparation phase, I was extremely busy and she was overly accomodating. I remember having to reschedule several times. One time, I had to reschule during a time when she was extremely sick. In fact, being a doctor, I would've recommended that she take a break. However, she kept going with grace and style.
On the day of my wedding, it was an amazing thing to see. My venue afforded me the opportunity to see my reception hall being set up. She arrived on time, set up within the time frame she had estimated and my venue's coordinator was even impressed by her efficiency. Being that she not only did my flowers, but also my table cloths, and more, her job was vital for the other vendors. She made this easy for them as well.
On my wedding day, everything did not go perfectly including my photography and dress, two vital things, however, decor was flawless and beyond perfection. People are still stunned 3 weeks later. It, in fact, compensated for any shortcomings. Therefore, if you are a professional (and of course, a nonprofessional), have very limited time like myself, want a lot for your money, and exceptional service, I truly recommend Corrina. I gaurantee that you will be more than satisfied.

Corrina and Matt,
What I can say is this: you both made our wedding day look beyond beautiful and gorgeous. We can not thank you enough for the creativity, thought, and pure beauty that you put into our wedding.
Aside from our venues own decorations, we hired Petit Fleur to decorate everything else. Our ceremony, reception room, which included floral, linens, chargers, etc. The end result was beyond amazing. From the most amazing cake floral that I think any of our guests have ever seen, to the rest of the giant and incredibly beautiful centerpieces, ceremony decor, etc. I could just go on and on gushing about how beautiful everything was.
For anyone considering hiring Petit Fleur, I would not look elsewhere. The work that they do is amazing and I know from personally spending hours with them is that you will be nothing but happy with the end result and your choice in Petit Fleur. As my husband started out with how many guys think which is…why do we need so many flowers, they are just flowers, to the end of the night being completely amazed and even teary eyed over how everything looked, that really showed just HOW GOOD Corrina and Matt are (and the staff that helped assemble everything together).
Corrina is great overall, and the floral work she does is unbelievable. I first contacted her after my first florist, a family connection, completely flaked on me. Thankfully, it was relatively early in the planning, and my day-of coordinator recommended Corrina to me when I called her in a panic. Corrina was able to fit me in for a meeting on the same day I called, and from the second I walked into her studio, I loved the arrangements and displays I saw, and was excited to work with her. I had some ideas about what I wanted, especially for the bouquets, but was fairly open to her suggestions. She took my ideas and the admittedly unimpressive examples I had found from searching the Internet and made some of the most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen. I was obviously focused on other things as I walked down the aisle, but once I was able to get a good look at the church arrangements, they almost took my breath away. I had similar experiences when I first saw the bouquets and the table arrangements at our reception venue. Corrina has a wonderful eye for design and detail, right down to the ribbon wrap on the bouquets, and knows more about flowers and how to make them look their best than I thought was possible. I recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful flowers for their wedding day or other special occasion.
Petit Fleur was amazing!!!! I simply showed Corrina magazine ideas and she was able to capture the exact look that I wanted for the wedding. I would highly encourage any bride to check out petit fleur. Corrina and her husband are so attentive and so wonderful. They made my reception look resplendent. The bouquet was out of the this world beautiful. I showed her an idea for a bouquet and one of the flowers in it was out of season, but she was able to find a flower that captured the romantic look we were hoping for. My family was absolutely floored when they saw the reception area. It was a mini flower paradise. The ceremony was so beautifully decorated and they did such a good job with working with existing vegetation. We got so many compliments. Corrina and her team with Petit Fleur made it a beautiful, wonderful day to remember!!
Corrina and her team did the flowers, linens and chuppah for my daughter's wedding at the Baronette. The overall look was beautiful and the flowers were simply stunning - from the centerpieces to the bouquets and boutonnieres. Corrina even handled the major changes we made just two weeks before in a professional and expert manner. Thank you, Corrina!
I am in medical school and planning my wedding while studying was super stressful but working with Corrina made my life sooo much easier. I really did not have a clear vision of what kind of floral I wanted at the wedding but she was very helpful at guiding me and the end result was beautiful and exactly what I wanted. Corrina also provided the chargers, linens, and chivari chairs which was super convenient and insured that my wedding decor was cohesive. My bridal bouquet was absolutely stunning. I don't think there was a single guest at my wedding who did not comment on it. And last but not least Corrina and her hubbie are a lot of fun to work with. : )
Working with Petit Fleur was the right decision for me and my working style. I wanted to work with someone who was detail orientated, planned, and then executed the plan. You receive all of this and much more with Petit Fleur.
I worked with them for both my (local) wedding shower as well as my destination wedding. I was completely blown away by the pride and passion the team puts into each and every event. The thoughtful planning process really paid off and each event was unique in design and elegant in nature.
The team went above and beyond for the wedding, no stone was unturned and my expectations were exceeded!!
I would absolutely use them again and high recommend Petit Fleur to any and all of my family and friends.
Corrina and her staff did an amazing job for the reception decor. She is very accommodating even when you have last minute changes!
My husband and I keep getting compliments on how beautiful, elegant and sophisticated everything look. Many guests mentioned that the flowers were the most beautiful they had ever seen... I agree!
Everything looked exactly as I envisioned it. I recommend Petite Fleur to everyone!
I did a lot of research on many different flower companies prior to coming to Petit Fleur for a consultation. From the moment that I sat down with Corrina and Matt, we felt so comfortable with their designs and how they ran their company. My husband and I are very busy and leaving work is nearly impossible, we needed a florist that would communicate and plan via email- Corrina responded quickly to emails and would reach out to us with flower designs. We met twice (consultation and final review) and planned everything else over emails or telephone calls.
I was a bride that didn't know much about flowers- All I knew was that our wedding have a very vintage/romantic feel. Corrina spent the time emailing me pictures of flower designs/arrangements and created such GORGEOUS flowers for my special day! We felt so at ease with Petit Fleur because they have done ALOT of weddings at our venue, The Colony Club in Detroit. They knew the venue and what made the venue POP! The Colony Club is already beautiful, but the way that they transformed the ballroom, really took our breathe away!
My flowers for the venue looked AMAZING. Guests to date, still talk about how amazing our flowers were and how the venue could not have looked any better. They provided us gold charger plates and we went with an ivory chiffon chair wrap on gold chavari chairs. The place looked absolutely stunning!
Corrina spent the time costuming a special surprise for my brother in law- a "Antler Inspired" boutonniere. It meant so much to him that we made this for him! He and all the guests LOVED the surprise!
Overall, Petit Fleur did an amazing job! For the price and quality-- We would highly recommend them. They transformed The Colony Club into a night of winter romance! We wouldn't have done anything differently, everything was absolutely perfect!
Corrina is fantastic! Corrina is the owner of Petit Fleur and the person whom I was in contact with the entire time! My wedding was cutting it a little close at time of contact with florist. She is full of ideas and was very helpful with suggestions! My only complaint was the flower girl arrangement on arrival was absolutely beautiful but as the day went on, I recognized that there was no water in the bag that held the water for each individual bouquet. So by the time we walked down the aisle the bouquet was a little droopy. But as I stated earlier upon arrival they were beautiful and all other bouquets were thoroughly watered! At the end of the day I was extremely happy with the services rendered!!
Petit Fleur Events supplied our centerpieces, flowers, candles, chuppah and linens. Corrina worked with us throughout the wedding planning process in meetings and by e-mail and she truly made my dreams come true. She transformed the same room from ceremony to reception in 30 minutes and everything was absolutely perfect. Multiple guests told us it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended and, of course, we agreed!
Corrina & her staff are amazing! My (now) husband and I live in Chicago and had our wedding in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. As such, we did the majority of our planning remotely. Corrina did a wonderful job accommodating our busy schedules and she and her husband were a pleasure to meet and work with in person.
Not having much time to devote to planning, Petit Fleur is especially great in that we were able to work with Corrina to pick our table linens, chairs, and chargers.
As for the flowers, from top to bottom Petit Fleur exceeded all of my expectations. I pulled several pictures from Pinterest to show Corrina what I had in mind. Knowing that such photos are often impossible to replicate on a reasonable budget, I was blown away by the end results. The quality and workmanship was amazing. Corrina was able to take the handful of pictures that I showed her and create something truly beautiful. I would not have changed a single thing. In fact, we were so impressed that my sister is using Petit Fleur for her wedding this May.
I'm extremely grateful for all of their hard work and so pleased that we chose Petit Fleur.
The quality and all that you get for the price with Corrina is truly unbeatable, I looked. Our wedding was 300 people and Corrina did 3 alternating centerpieces for us (2 flower arrangements, and candelabras) plus overlays, chargers and my bouquet for around $3500. She's also pretty straightforward with you, whether you like it or not, you should appreciate it in this business. The hall looked absolutely gorgeous by the time she was done with it, and after almost a month later I am still getting guests asking me who did it. It was clean, simple and elegant. If I had to dock points for anything in this review, it would only be for the minor issue that I wish I received a reminder email for the 50% payment due just prior to the big day. We ended up being late with ours, but with so many things going on, it's hard to keep track of everything and everyone! An email would've been helpful.
