He was also flexible throughout the process in terms of making changes in the weeks leading up to the big day. The flowers were stunning and the centerpieces lasted for at least a week after the event. John was also there on the day of event making sure everything went smoothly with the set up. I was thrilled with how everything turned out! I especially loved the bouquets and the chuppah, which was simply beautiful even though it was inexpensive.

what we wanted to do with our flowers. We came in and saw a prototype of the centerpieces and I knew we had made the right choice. I had decided that my bridesmaids would not have their own bouquets, but would have wrist corsages. I did not want them to look like prom corsages, and Ariston Florists came up with the most gorgeous flowers for the girls to wear on their wrists; they looked like pieces of art. I had wanted to include two rings from both my grandmother and my fiancé’s grandmother into my bouquet. They knew exactly what to do to make it look gorgeous and keep the rings safe. Also, a nice touch was every time we came in, even just to make a payment, they gave me a small bouquet of fresh flowers. Great customer service!

particular, I appreciated that John provided his honest opinion about which flowers/arrangements would work best during the season, venue, and most importantly, with my budget.
Ariston provided flowers for the bridal party, the ceremony (including chuppah), and the cocktail hour, reception and outdoor spaces. The delivery and set-up was seamless, and the floral arrangements were truly outstanding. We created a soft, garden-like look with roses, peonies, hydrangeas, ivy, and willow in various interpretations throughout the event. Simply gorgeous.
I believe John and Ariston went above and beyond what I contracted for to deliver a spectacular evening.

ton exceeded my every expectation.
Bridemsaids' bouquets of late have morphed into 3-4 flower nosegays, but not Ariston's. The beauty and size of my amazing (and affordable!) bridesmaids' bouquets surpassed some of the bridal bouquets I have seen at other weddings. My bridal bouquet was so remarkably lush that it felt heavy in my hands after a while - and that's no complaint!
John at Ariston Florist was extremely easy to work with and very personable. I met with a few florists before hiring John, and he was the only one who actually asked me exactly what I wanted. Everyone else had a lofty (and pricy!) "vision" for my wedding. Ariston's prices are extremely reasonable for the amazing work they do! Our centerpieces lasted for two weeks after the wedding, and the bouquets held up for about 3-4 days.
If you seek an easy going, reliable florist who will work to meet and exceed your every wish, chose Ariston!
