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!

My flowers were amazing... Kim made my vision a reality, pale pink peonies (not in season) and soft pink roses... I told her I wanted a romantic bouquet...she added artificial peonies with my roses and it was absolutely gorgeous. My bouquet was breathtaking and I also had some... Read More last minute cancellations and she reworked everything to give me an extra arrangement for the church. I envisioned a single rose at the ends of the rows along the aisle with tulle, she put somethings together and again...PERFECT... Kim did not sell me flowers, she listened to me, asked some questions, and put it together. I am a grad student, working part time and she worked very closely to my budget but not once did she cut any quality...my flowers were priceless and people thought I paid a fortune because of how beautiful they were. Kim is amazing
