Bill was a pleasure to work with and even stopped by the bridal suite while I was getting ready to make sure I was happy with the bouquets. He really got the style we were looking for (more flowers, less greens) and we got so many compliments on how beautiful everything looked.

And Bill personally delivered everything to us at the venue on the big day. He helped turn my dream wedding into reality!

ases so they stayed hydrated and lasted far longer than just that day. I was hoping I could post pictures because Kathi designed gorgeous arrangements on tall, gold candleabras for our venue which had very high ceilings. She sent us a picture via email prior to the wedding to be sure we liked the design. We had a multicolored palette of soft pastels and she brought them all together in a whimsical, magical way! The team went above and beyond for us and we are so happy we used McCarthy on our wedding day!

iving compliments ALL NIGHT on how beautiful the floral arrangements were.
Through the process, I worked predominantly with Brian McCarthy and Chrissy Connors, who are both so passionate and knowledgeable about the floral industry and put every concern I had at ease. I was able to work together with them to share my vision and ultimately what I wanted, and they helped that vision come to life (and then some!).
For example, I thought that low centerpieces for the tables would be the best option, as I didn't want too much going on. Brian suggested to alternate high and low centerpieces for the tables, so that it really opened up the space - and that's what it did! It did not look overwhelming, it was absolutely perfect. Had I gone with strictly low centerpieces, it would have been too understated and not many people would be able to see how beautiful the flowers were!
Additionally, Brian was the one that suggested hanging a wreath on the front door, after doing research on the venue and seeing that in front of the door was a popular photo spot. This is something I NEVER would have thought of on my own, but it was definitely one of my favorite floral arrangements and the photos in front of the door look a million times better with the wreath!
Everything was absolutely perfect, and I wouldn't change a single thing!

We had our wedding on April 20th, 2017 in Scranton, PA. We chose McCarthy Flowers very far in advance, knowing we wanted a local company who had a great reputation for taking care of all the flowers for our day. I spoke with Brian originally, w...
ho was wonderful and set up our initial appointment, as well as asking for pictures and our vision for that day. He set up our appointment with Kathi in the Scranton location and she was my point person from that day on. Kathi sat down personally with us on more than one occasion to make sure our budget needs were met, while also making sure we looked at the photos and ideas of what we wanted. We supplied our own containers, but two days before hand something went wrong with them and we were contacted that all of them were breaking. McCarthy took care of everything - and let us use containers from them at a great price.
When the day came, all of the florals arrived on time and were delivered to the right areas. However, they were not exactly as we planned. We had been very specific in centerpieces that we wanted down to exact pictures of the flowers ( certain ones) and greenery. The flowers were beautiful and ended up working out for us, but initially, I was not as excited as I hoped. My personal bouquet, as well as the bridesmaids, were wonderful. We were also missing two groomsmen roses and had to call for them to be delivered. Luckily, they are local ( a great thing) and they rushed them right over.
We had two large arrangements for the ceremony room, which were beautiful, but did have elements in them (large sticks coming out of the center) which were not part of the plan.
We got so many compliments on all of our arrangements for our wedding, and overall McCarthy was a great company to have for our day. They were kind, very helpful and accommodating. Kathi was quick to respond to all emails and changes and took our budget into account.
I was not stressed at all in the end over the flowers, and they were beautiful. Also, the containers were ours to keep, which we did not know. If we had, we would have told our guests to take them home! We ended up with all of them at the end!

his expertise. My guests were blown away by the amount of red roses that Brian and his team had decorated with, not to mention the rose petals that accentuated every single table. And the cake, WOW. I had a simple 4 tier cake that Brian's team decorated with red roses between each tier. It looked AMAZING. I cannot say enough about Brian McCarthy, Carol, Bill and their whole team of designers! They took my vision for the wedding and completely exceeded every expectation I had. As far as value, Brian offered me a great price, which I would likely not be able to find through another local florist. He truly cares about the bride and groom and working with their budget to make their wedding day perfect!

We were very happy with the way that our flowers turned out for the wedding. The bouquets were gorgeous and the flowers fresh and in season. My only issue is that some of the colors were quite different from what we had originally asked for (...
i.e. a deep purple vs. plum/burgundy, like we had discussed), but the resulting bouquets, centerpieces, and arrangements were still gorgeous.
My only issue-we had a bit of trouble getting in touch with our main contact via email and I had to follow up several times to make sure that we were all on the same page; however, once we got closer to the date of the wedding, they were easy to reach and everything went pretty smoothly. They did get lost on the morning of the wedding, but still arrived with plenty of time to spare.

les so I could really imagine what I was going to recieve on the day of the wedding. It also really helped me choose my style of bouquet, etc.
I was always treated as if my wedding was #1, even if it was a relativly small order- something that I did not find at other local flower shops.
We had a consultation again a couple of days before the wedding to go over everything, which was great because we were able to catch a small mistake and correct it before it became an issue. We then made arrangements on where/when to deliver the flowers and we were on our way.
The day of the flowers arrived not only at the correct address, but early. They were really so so beautiful too- I'm so happy I went with them as a vendor.
They also had both elastics and corsage pins for the mothers/grandmothers so that they could choose how they would wear their flowers and what would work with their outfits on the day of.
In the end we sacrificed size of the boquets for the quality of flower, and I really think it was the right choice- we got traditional and classy flowers from a really classy florist at an amazing price! I would totally reccomend them to any scranton area bride!
