Kim at An English Garden did a fantastic job as our florist from start to finish. My now husband and I had limited previously knowledge about flowers, and Kim went above and beyond to describe beautiful flower options to us that would fit our vision of our wedding day, using... Read More photos of each flower type. She was so patient with us, and helped us work within our budget. Using an excel sheet, she itemized how much it would cost for our "dream flowers", and then little by little she helped make cuts that made our flowers fit in our budget without sacrificing our vision. Kim really emphasized that she would not sacrifice the size and quality of the bridal bouquet at all, just to make us happy with the price. That was so considerate of her. Of course on the day I am wearing the most elaborate outfit of my life, I don't want my bouquet to look skimpy! After we booked, Kim emailed me a PDF with pictures of all of the different flowers and greenery that would be in our flowers. During the week of the wedding, Kim texted me pictures of the bouquets and boutonnieres as she was working on them to ensure I was happy with the final product. Kim offered pick-up, which allowed a nice way to save on delivery charges. I had two family members picking up flowers, and each were taking flowers to 2 different locations. Kim was nice enough to follow my detailed instructions to separate the flowers by location so that everyone was able to receive the correct flowers. Everything turned out absolutely gorgeous and were labeled by name. Kim, thank you so much for your patience, creativity, personal attention, and FUN personality! Our flowers and the quality of your service were above and beyond!

I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Kim was hands down the BEST vendor I could ever book! I am a veryyyy organized bride that needs to have everything in order and I met my match with Kim! She was SO organized, keeps everything on an excel document, and values your opinion. I... Read More told Kim what I was thinking and asked Kim to give her opinion on my thoughts. She loved my vision and gave her input as well, without being pushy like other vendors sometimes can be. Kim was the sweetest woman that I have met while speaking with wedding vendors, texts you updates and PHOTOS of your flowers before they arrive the day of your wedding to make sure everything is perfect, and allows you to rent a few of her adorable wedding rentals for free (different signs, centerpieces, etc). I booked on the spot with her, which I never did with any other vendor. A few days after booking she even sent me a handwritten thank you card for allowing her to be a part of our special day and how excited she was. I LOVED working with Kim and HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend using An English Garden for your special day! You won't be disappointed!

Kim was probably one of my favorite people to work with during the wedding planning process. She is incredibly friendly, kind, accommodating and purposeful. You can tell she truly loves her job and knows her botany. My fiancée and I were able to plan all of our floral... Read More arrangements in less than three visits (one of which was just to drop off a payment). We had bridesmaid bouquets, a cascade bridal bouquet, centerpieces which we rented lanterns from Kim and several other arrangements for the memorial table, alter, blessings for Mother Mary; all of which came out absolutely beautifully. I cannot wait to get my pictures to see all of the beautiful arrangements again. I requested Kim make a very complicated cascade bouquet for myself including some very fragile flowers. She created a masterpiece that looked very similar to the picture I gave her from Pinterest but with more sturdy flowers that lasted all day. Kim is a joy to work with, she sends text updates frequently and lets you make all the decisions without any of her input until you decide. She even sends you a gift on your wedding day; I can’t say enough good things about Kim and her work. Go visit her and her adorable bulldogs at her quaint shop!

An English Garden - Our wedding florist

Reviewed on 9/08/2015 Stephanie S

I cannot say enough wonderful things about An English Garden. Picking out flowers was something I was a little nervous about because I was looking for a very specific look/color (coral). After meeting with Kim I knew I had nothing to worry about anymore! She assured me that... Read More everything would be perfect and worked so well with me throughout the whole entire process. Not only was her communication great, but her passion and attentiveness toward her customers and work is amazing. One of the other things I loved is that she kept me updated on what all of the flowers were looking like as she was putting them together (via text messages). That really helped put my mind at ease and assured me that everything was truly going to be perfect. My wedding day was one of the hottest days of the summer (105-110 degree heat index) so of course I got nervous that the flowers were going to wilt, I was wrong. The flowers arrived the morning of my wedding and I was absolutely blown away at how beautiful and perfect they were. They went beyond my expectations and truly helped put the finishing touches on the vision I had for my perfect day. Kim and her staff even made sure that they kept the bouquets in vases with water so that we could keep them in water when we were in the limo going from one place to another so they would stay fresh. I would HIGHLY recommend An English Garden to anyone looking to have the perfect flowers for an event. The staff is friendly, outgoing and always looking to do their best for their customers. I could not have asked to work with anyone better and the work they create is absolutely stunning!

She did and I couldn't believe how beautiful the flowers looked once they were in the process of being made!
