Our guests also cannot stop talking about how beautiful the florals were at the wedding.

Maria and Whitney truly went above and beyond and I endorse and recommend them with my whole heart. You will not regret allowing them to use their talents for your wedding or whatever your needs may be. THANK YOU, DARLING & DAUGHTERS!!!!

I’m so thrilled that we hired Darling & Daughters for our wedding florist. Maria and Whitney were amazing to work with. They were so excited about my ~vision~ for the wedding and really brought it to life in spectacular fashion. All of the arra...
ngements were absolutely stunning (particularly my gorgeous bouquet).
For our ceremony, they thoughtfully designed a beautiful asymmetric visual, and we were able to repurpose the individual components for the ballroom. For the table arrangements, my parents had very strong opinions about tall floral arrangements, so they designed two beautiful and lush sets of low arrangements which were absolutely stunning, as well as some hanging greenery.
The bouquets were a particular highlight. My bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses, and the bridesmaid bouquets were absolutely perfect for tying the overall dress aesthetic together. My bridal bouquet was a total showstopper. Everyone’s jaws dropped when they brought it into the bridal suite.
Finally, Maria and Whitney were just lovely to work with. I kept coming back with more thoughts and ideas and they were happy to incorporate additional elements into their design. They were very collaborative, eager to make their gorgeous seasonal flowers fit seamlessly with our other décor choices. The whole process of working with them was seamless!

enery wrapped staircases.
Throughout the planning process, I felt like Maria was the only vendor that I could just absolutely open up to with my wildest wedding visions. I gave her some incredibly long-winded and “flowery” (excuse the pun) descriptions of what I wanted my wedding to be like, I referenced photos, artwork, instagram accounts, TV shows, movies, etc etc. Somehow, she actually understood what I was trying to convey (and to her credit, she seemed very excited about my visions!), and brought my dream to life in, honestly, the most dreamlike way possible.
I was so incredibly touched when I saw my bouquet, and I was honored to have the privilege of carrying it. The team beautifully draped berries, greenery, and blooms in the bouquets and throughout the wedding. Everyone came to our sweetheart table just to admire the scene Darling & Daughters created. I wanted everything to be opulent, ethereal, almost ghostly, and ephemeral (see how hard I must have been to deal with?!), and I got EXACTLY what I wished for!
I cannot thank Darling & Daughters enough! Maria was hands down my favorite vendor to work with throughout the planning process and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again if the occasion arose!

d found someone special and never looked back. Maria is one of the kindest, most creative, and most genuine people there is and I could not feel luckier to have gotten to work with her throughout the wedding planning process. I know very little about flowers and had what felt like only a vague sense of what I wanted color and design-wise. But, Maria has an inexplicable talent for listening to a bumbling bride who is excited, nervous, clueless, and in need of guidance and translating her thoughts into something that is exactly what she never knew she wanted. Even though I did not meet Maria until the wedding day itself, I instantly knew I was in the best of hands and trusted her to make complete magic - a dream she completely hit out of the park. She also made herself completely available at any time throughout the wedding planning process, whether chatting on the phone, via email, or otherwise - making me feel as though I had met her a million times before. My breath was taken away when I finally saw everything she created for us on the wedding day - bouquets, corsages, boutonnières, centerpieces, a sweetheart table, decorations throughout the reception, flowers for our cake, and the most spectacular pergola design you've ever seen. We got more compliments on the flowers than any other aspect of the wedding and my heart is so full each and every time I think about the beautiful flowers. Maria was also extremely patient, flexible, responsive, and helpful throughout the entire process - answering my tons of questions, working with me to make our designs fit our price point, and more. I cannot say enough good things about her and can't wait to find another excuse to work with her in the future!

She is just a such genuinely sweet person and it's obvious that she loves what she does. Maria and her team executed my vision exactly, except better. We had a little bit of planning chaos leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day - a lot of family members with strong opinions and pouring rain when we were supposed to get married outside. Amidst all of this, I had all the confidence in the world that Maria would make our day so beautiful, but I never expected to be blown away like I was. When I walked into the ceremony space, it actually took my breath away. And I never expected to feel like Maria was a friend who poured her heart and soul into making our wedding day so magical and beautiful and special. From every small detail to the big things, she put thought and care into and took charge. I had 1,000 things on my mind leading up to the weekend, but the flowers and decor were not one of them, because I trusted Maria completely with it all. I truly couldn't recommend them enough - I feel so lucky that I had a chance to meet and work with Darling & Daughters!!
