GORGEOUS flowers by two LOVELY ladies

Reviewed on 11/11/2013 N P

LOVED LOVED LOVED working with these two lovely ladies! I nicknamed them my wedding fairy godmothers, like two cool aunties. They were a delight to work with, SO warm and friendly, fun, and full of beautiful ideas. We had serious mind-melds going on when it came to the vision... Read More for our wedding and the decor. They knew exactly what I was trying to create and had some great ideas. They did a fabulous job, it was the perfect combination of romantic, elegant, warm and sweet, EXACTLY what I was looking for. They even incorporated some out-of-season flowers that I loved but thought for sure it wasn't in the budget, and included a surprise for me at the end. Touching. I loved that every time I said "now I'm not sure if this is feasible...but I had this idea...". The response was always "Why not? We'll make it work!" And they did! Did I say that they were very respectful of our small budget? They really worked wonders. AND they are very organized and ensure that everything goes smoothly. I never had to micro-manage or worry about anything with them. They took care of it all. They even stayed during the ceremony so that they could personally set up all the table arrangements when the room was flipped (ceremony and dinner took place in the same room). Talk about dedication. I think it makes the difference that this is a small business run by two women who seriously love what they do and have a ton of fun doing it. Support local business!! Contact them and you WON'T regret it. THANK YOU CHERYL & DARYL!!!

Far Exceeded All of My Expectations!

Reviewed on 9/09/2013 Christie W

We were absolutely amazed with our wedding flowers - they exceeded any expectations I had by leaps and bounds and were so gorgeous! We ordered one bridal bouquet, one groom's boutonniere, two wrist corsages for the mothers, and two boutonnieres for our fathers, and the entire... Read More process was SO simple. I spoke with Daryl and Cheryl on the phone to bounce ideas around, then we shared some photo ideas on Pinterest and a few emails - and the end product was more beautiful than anything I had seen anywhere. It was also just lovely putting our trust in them and not having to worry about it again. They were very communicative and kept me updated as it got closer to d-day; when you're planning a wedding, anything that makes life easier is so very welcomed! Daryl even delivered my flowers to the house on the day of the wedding. They were also amazingly reasonable, and they even "threw in" an extra gorgeous arrangement for the guest table. All this for incredible value. I would absolutely recommend Graceful Hands Floral for any friend's wedding or other events. Thank you, thank you!

Let me start by saying that the end result of my flowers was beautiful. I used all silk flowers from my tall center pieces which my Mom and I provided and pick out with the florist. I had imagined that my smaller center pieces and my bridal bouquets would be the same as the... Read More tall ones just with real flowers. On my wedding day I was very disappointed with my bridal bouquets. I felt that there were lots of colors that I hadn't asked for and the shape of the bouquets weren't right. Daryl and Cheryl both were willing to rework the flowers for something closer to what I wanted. This caused a lot of stress for me on the morning of my wedding day, but all in all it worked out. My overall flowers looked beautiful throughout the venue and my personal bouquet was beautiful. I think had there been stronger communication between the florist and myself, the day of stress could have been averted and my bridesmaids bouquets would have been closer to what I had wanted.

Unhappy bride

I'm not even sure where to start with this review. I chose Graceful Hands because when I first started looking for a florist, they responded to my email quickly and had a (reasonable) quote almost instantaneously. But everything fell apart after that. I live out of state, so... Read More we were scheduled to have a phone interview four weeks before the wedding to talk about final details. We scheduled this meeting two months ahead of time, but when the day came, I didn't get a call from them. I sent an email to see if something had come up, and Daryl told me they were still unpacking from Cheryl's daughter's wedding and they needed to reschedule. I was a little annoyed but I agreed to reschedule. I told Daryl the days that would work for me, but she insisted that I call her on a day I explicitly said did not work for me. I told her this poor customer service made me nervous about my wedding, and she did apologize and work to call me at a time that worked for me. Then the wedding day. I arrived at the venue and saw the bouquets and honestly thought they belonged to someone else because they only loosely resembled what Daryl and I had discussed. I tried to shake it off, but my mother encouraged me to call Daryl and try to get the situation fixed. On the phone Daryl sounded as if my request that she fix the flowers was a horrible inconvenience for her. She did come back and fix them — mostly, but they still weren't really what I wanted. Also, one of the roses fell out of the bouquet during the ceremony. Graceful Hands has a great reputation, so I'm not sure why I got such poor service from them. Maybe because I didn't spend that much on flowers? I'm not sure, but I was and am pretty unhappy.

We had our head table draped in garland, along with our guest tables having both high & low arrangements (with pearls draping the high arrangements). Everything was stunning!

My wedding was July 5th and I without a doubt would say I had the best florists ever. Graceful Hands (Daryl and Cheryl) were absolutely amazing. Being an "out of state bride" it made planning very difficult. Daryl and Cheryl were there for me every step of the way and QUICKLY... Read More responded to any questions/emails. Seriously, they responded quicker than any other vendor I worked with. They really do care about each of their brides and take the time to go over every single detail of each flower arrangement with you. I was able to explain my vision to them and they instantly knew what I wanted and how to make it happen. They were so fun to work with and I would love to work with them again in the future for anything I need flowers for. My whole wedding came together perfectly and I really believe it was because of how the flowers looked with everything. Since I was an out of state bride, they took the time to meet with my maid of honor to go over everything... which my MOH absolutely ADORED them so I knew I didn't need to look any further. Since my time in town was so short, they made sure to fit me in to their schedules whenever I had time in town to go over everything that they had already went over with my MOH to me... AMAZING! I am a very visual person and get stressed out when I am not able to see an "end" result. Daryl and Cheryl were able to show me a ton of arrangements they had done that would be similar to my colors and were able to explain exactly how my flower arrangements would look down to the tiniest detail. Seriously, I am not over exaggerating this at all - they were the absolute best to work with. I would recommend them 110% to anyone looking for a florist. Thank you so much Daryl and Cheryl for making me wedding truly perfect!

I instantly got goosebumps when I saw all of the flowers. My bouquet was absolutely stunning. It was unbelievable how Daryl and Cheryl reflected me in my flowers. I loved all of the little personal touches that they included, like little jewels in my bouquet that matched my groom's boutonniere and the extra "bling" that they added to my mother's corsage. People are still talking about how beautiful the flowers were. I have already recommended these ladies to my other sister, who is getting married in October. Simply Amazing!

Cheryl and Daryl did an amazing job with our wedding flowers! Even though I didn't have much of a vision, they somehow knew exactly what I wanted and what looks good, which I really feel lucky about. They are both really good communicators and are dependable - they work well... Read More together! I read someone else's review, which compared them to two favorite aunts and I remember thinking that same thing - they are really fun to plan with and I can tell they really enjoy what they do! I felt like I received a lot of quality and value with the price, and the flowers looked perfect and amazing. They even added in some extra things that weren't included in the price I paid - for example, a beautiful floral sign in the shape of a "G" that was placed above the fireplace at our reception. I'm confident in saying that you won't be disappointed if you go with Graceful Hands for your florist - they are truly amazing.

I recently had the opportunity to work with florist Daryl Helmbock from Graceful Hands Floral Design when I needed floral arrangements for an outdoor, poolside party my daughter and I had. I had seen their arrangements at a wedding and knew Graceful Hands Floral Design would be... Read More able to provide something fun and unique form us. We wanted Pave-Style design (with a twist) centerpieces for the bar, cocktail and dinner tables. I felt the Pave-Style design was a challenge for the arrangements we wanted on either side of the infinity edge of the pool, but nonetheless that's what my daughter wanted. We met with Daryl a week before the event to discuss ideas and budget. She asked questions, listened to our ideas, made suggestions and on top of that, she had a vivacious personality that truly made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. In a matter of minutes she had the same vision we had and I knew she would deliver something fantastic! Next, the dreaded budget.....I was worried the poolside arrangements would just blow my budget right out of the water. Daryl knew right away how to solve that issue. Since the poolside arrangements were going to be a good distance away from the main party area and lit only by tiki torches and underwater pool lights, Daryl suggested using silks. Fabulous idea! Party day arrives and the last thing on my mind are the flower arrangements. Daryl sent a photo of an arrangement a few days before the event so I knew how wonderful they looked. When she delivered the flowers I was ecstatic! Daryl's creativity with the Pave-Style design was amazing! She created 3 different, very unique centerpieces for the tables and she used beautiful urns for the arrangements by the pool edge that helped highlight the unique design of the arrangements. All the arrangements were unbelievably gorgeous and I loved how unique they were. I highly recommend Graceful Hands Floral Design for any floral arrangements you need. They are fun-loving and very professional in their approach. Such a breath of fresh air....especially when discussing the budget. Loved working with Daryl!

I had the honor of having Daryl and Cheryl of Graceful Hands do the flowers at my wedding on October 9, 2011 at Coxhall Gardens in Carmel, Indiana and let me say they did an AMAZING job!! I was extremely nervous about the flowers because it was the smallest part of our budget... Read More and our venue really needed lots of floral arrangements since the venue for the ceremony was in a concrete amphitheater outside. To this day I still cannot believe all that Cheryl and Daryl did for both my wedding ceremony and reception considering the little money that I paid. I was extremely picky about my color scheme and both of them paid strict attention to it and filled my venue with beautiful floral arrangements in pots, on the back of chairs, and all throughout the ceremony. If it had not been for their huge amount of work, my ceremony setting would not have looked nearly as beautiful. As for the reception, I was blown away by the centerpieces!! They alternated short and tall centerpieces that followed my purple and gold color scheme and even had ribbon within the vases to add even more color. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received. On top of that, I did not have to worry about a single thing on the wedding day. All of our bouquets were dropped off at the exact time and place they were told and they set up all of the floral arrangements at the venue perfectly. The main thing that attracted me to these two was that I knew absolutely nothing about flowers, so I was really looking for a company where I could just tell them an outline of what I wanted and then they would know exactly where to take it from there. This is exactly what Cheryl and Daryl did. All I asked for was centerpieces and some arrangements for the ceremony that went with my colors, and the result that they produced was TREMENDOUS! It appeared that they knew the precise vision I had in mind for the flowers. Brides have enough to worry about on the day of their wedding, and I can honestly say that I was able to get the flowers I had dreamed of with minimal expense and little effort. I am truly grateful to have had them on my wedding day and would recommend them to any bride. Katie
