When I first met with Toni, she asked me for a few words to describe my overall vision for the wedding and I said something like "vintage romance" and our colors were gray and "pale, soft, romantic pink" and was adamant about no "Barbie" pink. I had a few random picture of flowers I pinned from Pinterest and the Knot that I showed Toni and she instantly understood what I was looking for.
We were married outside at the Hyatt next to the lighthouse so we needed some ceremony flowers to create a central focal point at the ends of the aisle, and flowers down the rows of chairs. Toni's creations were nothing short of amazing. She framed the aisle exactly the way I envisioned if not better. The shabby chic, unstructured arrangements were just the loose and romantic look I wanted. She provided pillars and banistuals for the flowers that stayed put in the high winds that day.
For the reception, I wanted a combination of high and low centerpieces and Toni created stunning arrangements. The lower version was a vintage mercury glass vase with shades of pale pink and cappuccino colored roses, pale pink peonies, and white hydrangea with silvery dusty miller. The taller version was on a white candelabra with a few perfectly placed crystals dripping down.
My bouquet was perfect - the perfect size, shape, and colors to complement my vision. The bridesmaids flowers were complementary to the shade of the dress (I sent Toni a dress swatch).
For the men, Toni created lovely (yet masculine!) boutonnieres that matched the overall look and feel of the wedding.
Our wedding was about three months ago and people are still raving about how amazing the flowers were.
Thank you, Toni!!

Toni completely nailed our vision for our elegant winter wedding. When we met back in June, she was accommodating and flexible to our design style and budget needs. She was always available to answer any questions by email or phone. If she couldn't contact me personally, there was always an assistant in touch.
The morning of my wedding, she delivered a gorgeous arrangement with a card sent by my husband. She came back later in the afternoon and absolutely amazed me with my "go big or go home" bouquet. I cannot say enough about how absolutely stunning my bouquet was. It was fresh and full of every type of flower we had discussed at our meeting. The best part was that the anemones had perfectly opened up just in time for the ceremony. The black centers looked amazing! Toni also attached my rosary beads to the bottom for just the look I wanted.
Our ceremony and reception arrangements were perfect and elegant. All white hydrangeas which were full and lush with beautiful candlelight. I just can't say enough about what Toni did for Jason and I. Not only were our flowers amazing, but the Christmas decorations and arrangements all around our venue (OceanCliff) were done by Toni as well. This made for our perfect winter wedding.
Thank you, Toni!

I do not know where to start in expressing my gratitude for Toni's beautiful work. She and her team did a fantastic job with the floral design for our wedding at Glen Manor. I cannot say that I was surprised as it was so easy working with her entire team from the very beginning. When I first approached her for a consultation, I remember the warmth, professionalism, and enthusiasm she showed me. When (all) other florists balked at my conservative floral budget, Toni embraced me and my ideas, telling me that anything was possible and that I deserved to feel special for my big day. I still remember when Toni said that she wouldn't want florists treating her daughter as if her budget wasn't worth their time and so she wouldn't treat me that way. To have someone of her caliber and experience say that put me at ease. Though we never met in person prior to the wedding, I always had the utmost confidence in her and her work. She and her team answered my questions and reassured me every step of the way. She made my vision a reality.
I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on the floral arrangements during our wedding. The rooms at Glen Manor looked elegant and regal. The bridesmaids' bouquets were classic and perfect. My bouquet was out of this world. I will never forget the way the gardenias smelled that day and it is one of my favorite wedding memories. At the reception, I couldn't imagine throwing my bouquet and so I gifted it to my mother seeing as how gardenias are her favorite flowers. The candlelight throughout Glen Manor set the scene for a magical evening. Everything was absolutely breathtaking!
Toni is an angel. I hope that I will one day be able to work with her again for another event.

We would highly, highly recommend Toni!!. She did the flowers for our ceremony and reception. She is tech savvy and we were able to share lots of pictures and ideas over Pinterest, even though we were planning the wedding from out of town. From our initial meeting we could tell that Toni has great style and taste and takes a lot of pride in her work-- and that led to a really beautiful "wow" for us when it all came together at our wedding.
On the day everything looked even more amazing and lush than expected! She really made the most of our flower budget by re-using arrangements from the ceremony for the cocktail hour and reception. All flowers (bouquets and bouts) and decor were set up early for formal pictures. The bouquets were so pretty, and got a lot of compliments-- She and her team transformed the ceremony space for our reception. It all worked smoothly and came out gorgeous.
The thing with flowers is that you have to see them, so I highly recommend checking out her website and Pinterest pages!! (Her pictures really do show how fabulous she is!!)

Very happy with our flowers, and the service provided by Toni and her assistant, Ali. Toni wanted our wedding to look as beautiful as we did. Both she and Ali were attentive and responsive to our needs. She was the only florist we met with, and I'm happy we didn't explore other options. Great job.
