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!

An English Garden Wedding & Events was wonderful to work with. On my first appointment with Kim I showed her some of my ideas and not only did she go with them, but she made them 10xs better than the pictures. We used them for the Shower decoration, wedding, and day after... Read More decorations. Our flowers lasted for weeks after the events and looked fresh till the very end. I loved all the little details and updates we received the week of the wedding. Kim and her crew made it so easy and stress-free on such a short time frame- 5 months. We originally went in because they were local, and are we glad we did because we will use them for every event from now on. I may want my bouquet recreated every year ;).

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!
