Viburnum was great. Rachel and Claire were really nice and personable. And they knew exactly what I was going for. I wanted romantic but not rustic and elegant but not too formal. I was able to trust them to give me the look I wanted with just minimal direction on color and feel. The result was absolutely beautiful and right on point. I highly recommend.
Viburnum was absolutely wonderful for our 15 June 2014 wedding. Working with Rachel and Claire was so easy...they were able to take my abstract ideas and bring our vision to life. Their enthusiasm for our color choices (Emerald green was a focus) was infectious, and they were an all-service business. They delivered all the flowers and even moved the ones from the Chapel to our cocktail/reception location. The flowers were simply gorgeous and actually lasted over a week after the ceremony and reception. It was so fun to be able to have them for longer than just the day. I would recommend anyone getting married in the Northern/Central New Jersey area go visit with them.
Virburnum did an incredible job designing the flowers for my wedding. We used them for both the rehearsal dinner and ceremony/reception. Claire and Rachel were both amazing to work with, were very knowledgeable about the flowers that would be available in October, and were able to incorporate all of my ideas into the floral decor. When searching for a florist for the wedding, I found that many florists were difficult to understand and had a hard time understanding and incorporating what I wanted into the design. Claire and Rachel always knew exactly what I was looking for and I absolutely loved the final product. Everything was so much more beautiful than I imagined it would be and they were able to incorporate the exact hues I wanted into the bouquets.
Viburnum was extremely professional to work with, was flexible, and worked with me to get pricing on special items. We had multiple locations throughout the weekend where flowers needed to be delivered for certain members of the wedding party and Claire made sure each floral arrangement was delivered to the correct location at the intended time. During the long break between my ceremony and reception, Viburnum took the two large ceremony arrangements back to their store for refrigeration and later delivered them to the reception venue. Additionally, Claire took a lot of time to make sure the reception venue floral and pumpkin decorations were meticulously arranged, both around the venue and on and around the wedding cake.
I would absolutely recommend using Viburnum and hope to have the opportunity to use them again in the future.
The team at Viburnum Designs did a wonderful job providing flowers for my wedding! The bouquets were gorgeous! They also did a great job with the centerpieces and ceremony decor. Viburnum worked closely with us throughout our year of planning. They were very flexible and were open to changes as my vision changed throughout the year of planning. We received numerous compliments on our flowers. I would highly recommend them!
I was beyond grateful and impressed with what Rachel and the Viburnum team accomplished with my wedding. The first time I stepped in the their shop to have my consult, I knew I was in the right place. Not just a normal florist but a world of creative design. When I sat down with Rachel, and after a short time of talking, she understood everything I wanted in my vintage/masculine wedding. I felt complete trust that she would not only get the job done but with impeccable taste. I gave them very limited time to pull off my vineyard wedding (2 1/2 months). Not only did she pull off my request of renting Victorian furniture, bringing in antique doors, creating a canopy, incorporating hundreds of little antiques I purchased; I never heard once a "maybe" or "we cant do that". Everything I wanted they provided. Some of the reactions I received from my guests were, "The most beautiful wedding I ever been to." "I feel like I'm in a fairytale movie." "This wedding is so different, I never been to a wedding like this before." Viburnum played a huge part in working with such a beautiful backdrop of the vineyard. My advice to anyone reading this review, is you would be cheating yourself if you didn't use Viburnum. As a bride, the best thing I could of done was let go of a little control and let them do what they do best, which is create and design. -Elisabeth R.
Claire did a great job! It was so easy to work with her and she was always super responsive via email. I had asked her to help with setting up the tables and gave her a picture of the look I was going for and when first walked into the reception hall, it was just beautiful-exactly what I had envisioned. The flowers were reasonably priced given how expensive flowers are and they didn't seem to wilt. Thanks for everything and I highly recommend them!
Ashling and Claire are true wedding artists. Each time they work with flowers for a wedding (or virtually any occasion), they create a masterpiece! Each and every flower is carefully chosen for its quality, color and appropriateness for the occasion. Ashling offers advice with all aspects of the wedding "styling" from the color of the linens to the placement of rose petals down the aisle. You will not find a more attentive, artistic and creative group to work with ANYWHERE. USE THEM...YOU WILL BE SO HAPPY YOU DID! A very happy mother of the bride!
The girls at Viburnum are fabulous and have great visions. Not only did they create my dream floral decor, they also are a one stop shop for the perfect linens and furniture rentals. Everything from the bouquets to the blooms on my cake to the iridescent linens for the cocktail hour were perfect. Rachel and Claire are more than just awesome florists - they become great friends who understand your vision. Don't go to anybody else in NJ!
It was so easy and wonderful to work with Viburnum Designs for my wedding flowers. They have a beautiful store front, professional and easy to work with staff - Claire was great!, and absolutely reliable service. The flowers were beautiful, arrived exactly when they needed to, and they were even able to get me the peonies even though it wasn't the right season. Can't thank them enough!
I gave Viburnum Designs the challenge of creating an elegant Hawaiian theme in a historic house for my wedding. They delivered beyond what I could imagine! We and our guests were delighted to see flower specimens that we have never seen before—the most beautiful, vibrant tropicals in the world! Gorgeous leis were created for all of the guests, and special ceremonial leis were designed as well as a luscious cascade bouquet and a comb of flowers for my hair. Stunning ceiling-height environmental pieces were staged in our space to give the feeling of being in the tropics in an artful way. A circular banister that surrounded our dance space was decked with garlands of tropical greenery and flowers—simply stunning! Thank you to a wonderful floral design team for your excellent work!

We had so much fun working with Rachel and everyone at Viburnum. We gave them a tough task--an outdoor wedding in November in Central New Jersey. They were willing to tackle any task we gave them. They understood our vision and made suggestions not only about the flowers, but also about how to improve the entire wedding and reception. We highly recommend them!
Working with professionals like Claire and Rachel just made the flowers so easy for me... one less thing to worry about. Their style and vision PERFECTLY matched my own, so when I walked into the shop I really thought it was too good to be true (and too expensive for my meager budget!) I was so surprised by their unbelievable flexibility and willingness to work with me on every aspect, that (once again) I knew I had found my vendor on first meeting. They were patient and rolled with all my last minute decisions and changes, which were important to me. I was extremely impressed the day of the wedding at the smooth set up and perfectly manifested vision... when I walked around after the ceremony I noticed all the little details we had discussed which they had pulled off perfectly. I would recommend them to anyone, but especially if you have that "rustic" "woodsy" and "moss and sticks" style, which I do. I would not dare limit them to that, because I think they would pull off classic flowers just as well, but it had to be mentioned because I do not believe your old-school run-of-the-mill florists would get it. Ultimately, just a great experience working with them.
As someone who doesn't know much about flowers, I trusted the aesthetic judgment of Ashling, Claire, & the Viburnum team for my wedding this past weekend (9/1/13). And they came through beautifully! They were able to intuit exactly what I wanted, even though I couldn't figure it our myself. They're also extremely flexible: I provided vases that I had borrowed from my recently married friend, and they worked with me to create a design with the vases I provided and within the budget I specified. And when we changed the color of the bridesmaids' dresses and needed to change their bouquets, they didn't blink an eye. When the number of tables changed at the last minute? Not a problem.
If you're checking out florists, definitely consider Viburnum. At the very least, meet with Ashling & Claire! They're extremely friendly, extremely flexible, and they seemed to know what I wanted even though I couldn't articulate it myself! Strongly recommend.
Wedding day is the most stressful day for bride and groom and it was for us too but if you have vendor like Viburnum then you are in a good hand. Ask me why? They are the best because....
1) They listen to you
2) They have the super power to see what you really want
3) They are very creative
4) They work with you on your budget
5) They do more than what they promise. Ex: They decorate bridal suite with petals and candles for free.
6) They did not treat you as a customer; they treat you as a friend
7) You don't have to worry a single thing on their decoration
8) They are always on time on wedding day to setup stage
9) They work with you for backup plan if the weather goes bad. Ex: We had rain on our wedding day but they executed the backup plan perfectly
10) They are simply the nicest people in earth who believe more than you that it is the most important day for you
I would strongly recommend setting an appointment with them to see what they can offer you. I am very much satisfied with their services and without any 2nd thought I will always refer viburnum. Look for Rachel; she made my wedding the most memorable day of my life.
I'm so glad I chose Vibernum Designs to create the floral design for our wedding day. I very much enjoyed working with Claire. She provided great insight into things I might want to consider and was able to convert my sometimes vague ideas into floral designs that I adored. The bouquets were beautiful as were the table pieces and assorted other elements of our day. Our ceremony was outside and the ivory aisle runner with purple petals was romantic and magical! Thank you Claire and Vibernum for your dedication, service and experience.
As you'll see from Viburnum's beautiful website, they offer a very unique variety of flowers. Since this was a second wedding for us, and we are in our late 40's, we wanted to keep things simple, elegant, and reasonably priced, but with a little extra style/touch/flare that I knew Viburnum could provide. Rachel and Claire at Viburnum were very good listeners, especially regarding what I wanted my bouquet to look like. Once we talked budget, they never pushed for me to try to go over that; they were as concerned about staying at my number as I was! As spring approached, they updated me on what types of flowers would be available in June. The flowers showed up at our celebration right on time--and there was Claire with a big smile to set it all up "just right."
Even if you aren't sure of what you want, go to Viburnum and talk to the team there. Claire will pull out her iPad and you'll start looking at photos of bouquets, arrangments and flowers--some flowers you might not have ever heard about! Some of the flowers are expensive, so be careful and honest. With the Viburnum team's help, you will find what you like and won't be disappointed with the experience or results.
Viburnum Designs handled the flowers for my wedding on July 20, 2013, and they did an absolutely incredible job. Ashling and Claire were a delight to work with. When Ashling and I met for our consultations, it was so clear that her goal was to accomplish my vision for the wedding, and she did that. Ashling and Claire made communication so easy, and from just two meetings and many pictures emailed, they NAILED the look I was going for. When Ashling dropped the flowers off at my house the morning of the wedding, I was blown away by how beautiful and perfect they were. All of the girls loved their bouquets. The church and the reception venue were breathtaking. Ashling and Claire made gorgeous arrangements, chose perfect vases and candles, and helped us arrange linen rentals. They took care of EVERYTHING, and the result was beyond what I could have imagined.
We used Viburnum Designs for our daughter's wedding in June (2013). They were fabulous. Their artistry is outstanding, and equally important, they are very responsive. They listened carefully to us and gave us exactly what we wanted. We couldn't have been happier with the flowers at the wedding; they were exquisite! Our guests gave us many, many compliments, and at the end of the day, they were asking if there were more centerpieces they could take home (none were left!). As far as a budget, they were clear and accurate up front, so there were no surprises. The staff was a pleasure to work with, and above all, they produced gorgeous results.
Viburnum did my flowers for my wedding this summer and they were gorgeous!
We loved, loved, loved everything! Our guests were gushing about our magnificent chuppah and gorgeous table arrangements. The bouquets and corsages were the prettiest I've ever seen.
It was a joy to work with Claire, Ashling, and the Viburnum team, they did an amazing job making sure that the wedding was beautiful and that everything was perfectly taken care of, we didn't have to worry about a thing.
Viburnum did my wedding flowers, which were absolutely beautiful. We received many compliments on the reception flowers, in particular. The service could be a little better in terms of responsiveness throughout the process, but everything turned out well.
