Great job!Reviewed on 2/02/2014
Sara at Parsonage Events provided the perfect flowers for our wedding! She really took the time to listen to my wants and then worked with my budget to make it all work. I got exactly what I wanted and I felt like she was on my wavelength the whole time. She was wonderful to work with, I was even able to text her pictures of things I saw leading up to the wedding that I liked to keep both of us on the same page. She was able to meet with me, my husband, and mom after hours multiple times since we were driving in from Grand Rapids to plan the wedding. She even worked with my aunt the morning of the wedding to get everything set up to (my aunt's) very specific specifications. The flowers and centerpieces looked beautiful. GREAT JOB SARA and the rest of the staff at Parsonage!
Worth every penny spent!Reviewed on 12/03/2013 Lisa T
Loved the flowers that Debbie put together for my wedding at Pine Knob Mansion. I went in not having anything specific in mind as "must haves" but wanted it all to tie in with a English Garden Wedding theme. Only thing I would have done different is to have also added a little bouquet for my flower girl to hang on to after her flower petals were gone and she was done with the basket! She ended up stealing her sister's bouquet during my ceremony (which made for some pretty priceless photos).
Parsonage is awesome!Reviewed on 10/17/2013 Lauren C
Sara and the whole team at Parsonage Events did an amazing job for my wedding! Sara was super easy to work with, and she was always great at answering my questions. I hired Parsonage Events for my bouquets, center pieces, linens, decor, and stationary. Sara was able to see my vision for the wedding, I had always dreamed of. She created a fairy tale wedding for my husband and I. My bouquet was stunning. My favorite detail was the draping and chandelier Sara created for the ceremony. We had so many compliments from family and guests. I would highly recommend Parsonage Events for every bride. They are easy to work with, communicate well, and are very reasonably priced for everything they do!
So Happy!!!!Reviewed on 10/31/2014 sara c
So happy I finally got to be a Parsonage bride. It was a day full of love and flowers....just what I always wanted!!!
AMAZING: I'd give them 20 stars if I could!Reviewed on 9/22/2014 Anna Y
Words simply cannot express how incredible Liz at Parsonage Events was to work with. Planning the entire wedding myself, Liz went above and beyond her role as my florist from helping me to pick and arrange vintage furniture, to stuffing and folding napkins with my place cards, to helping me pick out every NON-FLORAL detail like linen colors. She has an impeccable eye and was able to immediately understand the aesthetic I was going for and make it a reality. Above all, Liz cares. She understands the importance of your day and treats your wedding as if it was her own. In addition, Liz worked with me extensively to get the floral budget down to where I felt comfortable - giving me honest feedback on ways to cut back and incredible cost-saving (like vintage candelabras!!!) ideas. BUT..... I haven't even mentioned how insanely, incredibly gorgeous the flowers were. My entire wedding was beaming at the elegance and beauty of Liz's work. When I pulled into the venue on my wedding day, I was in complete awe - Liz had surpassed my wildest dreams and the wedding was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Do yourself a favor and work with Liz. She is an incredible florist, and an amazing human being.
MAGIC!Reviewed on 9/09/2014 Genevie S
Parsonage Events did my flowers and decor on August 9th, 2014, and all I can say was everything they touched looked like magic!!! Liz and the entire team at Parsonage Events are by far the most talented floral/decor team in all of Michigan, and if you ask me - in all of this country. I came to them with ideas swirling in my head, and every single one of them came to life on my wedding day on August 9th. Liz became a friend, and some of the best memories of my wedding planning come from visiting her modern and somehow perfectly vintage shop. She was passionate about my wedding - and came up with new ideas that ended up becoming the favorite parts of my wedding decor. They set everything up so I could relax on my big day, and they took it all down. Bride to bride, you will get your dream wedding if you go with this company. They will make you feel like a princess, and you will look at them as friends. I owe them the biggest hug for what they created, and I intend on visiting their shop to do just that. So, THANK YOU Liz and the beautiful women and hardworking men at Parsonage, for giving me the most magical day of my life.
Wedding Of My Dreams!Reviewed on 8/12/2014 Emily P
My flowers, linens and stationery were beyond anything I imagined. It was a little difficult for me to put into words what I wanted and I am so grateful for every single designer at Parsonage that help me bring my dream and vision to life! When I saw our reception and how beautiful it was, it literally brought me to tears! (not exaggerating!!!) I loved only having to think about one thing that day - my husband! Thank you for everything!
Beautiful Flowers & Impeccable ServiceReviewed on 7/14/2014 Megan
I worked with Sara at Parsonage and am so grateful for her help, her creative eye, her patience and her extraordinary work. Our wedding could not have been more perfect. I will absolutely consider Parsonage for all my events in the future and recommend them to anyone who will listen! Overall, I couldn't have chosen a better florist. Service was amazing and customer oriented - you left there wanting to hug them. While they were a bit more expensive than I would have liked, Sara worked with me to get to a price point that was reasonable for what I was asking. The centerpiece flowers lasted all weekend! The corsages were a little loose but still beautiful - plus, flowers need gentle care so it is no surprise that after a night of dancing the grandmothers didn't have too much left! Thank you for everything Parsonage!
Exceeded my expectations!The most beautiful arrangements I've seen, with amazing service too!Reviewed on 7/14/2014
I had the good fortune of seeing Parsonage's work first hand when I visited our venue for the first time. Parsonage had already set the flowers up in the wedding tent of the venue, and right then I knew I wanted to go with them as well. Their style is both elegant and whimsical. And although their prices aren't cheap -- the money is well worth it not only because of their gorgeous work, but also for their quality of service. I had the pleasure of working with Sara Kline, who from start to finish was a total professional and very knowledgeable. She was friendly, easy to work with, and passionate. She was also a great listener, making sure she understood exactly what I wanted, and was always available to go over details with me. A bonus was that she was willing (and knowledgeable enough about various types of flowers) to successfully work within my budget. I knew Parsonage would do a great job, but on the day of my wedding I was simply blown away. The arrangements had far exceeded my expectations. The venue looked simply stunning. There are so many things that can go wrong on the day of your wedding, and as a bride I'd prepared myself to be OK with that. In this case it was the exact opposite -- I got above and beyond what I expected, and I couldn't have been happier with Parsonage's work. I'm so glad I chose them.
Failed to listenReviewed on 7/13/2014 Amanda S
We extensively discussed the details of bouquets for the wedding with them. Told them our wedding colors etc. When the flowers showed up, bridesmaids were as expected. The bridal bouquet was not in the correct color scheme. Was told the colors were technically the correct color since flowers vary. Why did we spend so much time with them going over what we wanted and our wedding colors for them to give us something the wrong color? Not very understanding and attempted to blame us and not the consultant. Very disappointed.
Just What I Wanted!Reviewed on 7/07/2014 Jenna F
My visions were brought to life with the help of Sara at The Parsonage! My wedding had a vintage feel and the Parsonage did an amazing job with setting it up just as we had discussed. They will set up and clean up (for an additional fee) and that is totally worth it! You can bring your own glassware and/or rent from them (I did both).
INCREDIBLE DESIGN...and Service!Reviewed on 10/02/2013 Ali H
Simply Incredible!! Working with Debbie and her team was a dream. I planned our wedding from out-of-state and was so worried my vision would be lost in translation- so NOT the case with Parsonage Events. My vision was recreated beyond my wildest dreams AND all within our budget. I loved that a Pinterest page was created just for me immediately following our first meeting. Many fun months of working together adding to it lead to a level of elegance and sophistication I could have never imagined myself. In addition to our gorgeous flowers and table decor, it was so convenient to be able to rent our chivari chairs, up-lighting, and lounge couches all together. Everything was handled by the Parsonage and I never had to worry about a thing. One of the Best decisions we made during the wedding planning process was to work with Debbie and her team!
AMAZING FLOWERS, SERVICE, AND FRIENDS!Reviewed on 10/01/2013 Laura G
I worked with Liz for my wedding on Sept 21, and it was the best experience ever! I knew that Liz was awesome since she designed my sister's flowers for her wedding last July, but let me tell you, Liz is absolutely THE BEST to work with! She met with me many times to discuss my design ideas, look at Pinterest boards, and even visited my wedding venue with me. Liz is so personable, friendly, and genuinely loves what she does. She was just as excited about my wedding as I was, and was interested in getting to know me and hear all about my "love story." :) On the day of my wedding, Liz was there setting up and even returned later in the day to make sure everything looked perfect. So much of the stress of my wedding day was gone because I knew Liz would be there. In the end, the flowers were absolutely beautiful, and I cried when I saw everything set up for my reception. It was perfect, and I can't say enough good things about The Parsonage and Liz:) Thank you, thank you, thank you!! A+++
My flowers were AMAZING!!!!!Reviewed on 9/18/2013 L B
DEBBIE! OMG! My flowers were incredible, out of this world, beautiful!!! Better than I even imagined, WOW! Thank you sooooo much for everything, you were truly a joy to work with. You really were such a special part of my day. I can't thank you enough, my bouquet was spectacular :) Thanks again, much love to you and the Parsonage Team! xoxo -Laura
Absolutely beautiful!!Reviewed on 8/28/2013 deena b
Debbie at the Parsonage did an amazing job! Even when I couldn't articulate exactly what I wanted, she patiently listened and worked with me to create what I had envisioned. The flowers were gorgeous, and my bouquet especially was stunning! I couldn't have been happier =)
Very happy with my experienceReviewed on 8/27/2013 Dawn B
Sara was my consultant and she was very outgoing and friendly, made choosing the flowers and centerpieces for our wedding very easy and fun I feel like Sara had a really clear vision of what I wanted for flowers and I was very happy with the end product. The only downside was that it was a bit on the expensive side, however I am very happy with the product and the service I received for the price.
If you want your dream wedding, choose Parsonage Events!Reviewed on 8/22/2013 Stephanie P
The Parsonage did an amazing job at my wedding. I hired them for my linens, flower arrangements, and stationary. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. It was great to be able to get all of those services from one place. It saved me a lot of time! Liz and her team really captured the look and the feel of my dream wedding. Not to mention the bouquets were spectacular! I loved their creativity and trusted them to get me the best flowers without breaking the bank. I couldn't have asked for more perfect arrangements on my big day. I would recommend The Parsonage to any bride!
THE BEST EVER!!! All brides should hire Parsonage - LOVE THEM!Reviewed on 8/20/2013 Amber T
Liz and her team at Parsonage are THE BEST EVER!!! My wedding was absolutely gorgeous and all the flowers served dual purposes in order to be as cost-effective as possible. The bouquets were amazing, the ceremony was stunning, and when I walked into my reception it literally took my breath away! Working with Liz was truly one of the best parts of my entire wedding-planning experience, and everyone else that I encountered at Parsonage was truly delightful as well. I would highly recommend that brides not just consider Parsonage, but hire them immediately - You won't be disappointed!!
Amazing!Reviewed on 8/17/2013 Shayna W
The work that Parsonage does is simply impeccable. I worked with them (specifically Sara Kline) for my May wedding and it was perfection. I went in there and explained the overall look and feel I wanted for the decor and flowers and we looked over everything, went over ideas and I felt excited to see the outcome and slightly nervous because I am extremely particular when it comes to aesthetics. The day of came and everything was delivered and set-up and it was beyond anything I had envisioned--more beautiful, more detailed and perfectly put together. It was kind of like a dream, but, it was real and all there in front of me to relish in. I cannot say enough kind words about Sara and Parsonage but thanks for making my wedding so amazing!
Breathtaking TouchesReviewed on 8/15/2013 Lindsay S
The parsonage put together my bouquets, boutonnieres, and table settings at our wedding and they did an amazing job. My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous and I could not believe how beautiful the tablecloths and centerpieces were. They work out of Clarkston and were perfect for our wedding. The staff was wonderful at keeping with the theme of the wedding and were flexible as to what you wanted. They even created a pinterest page for you so you could see their thoughts about the flowers and tables. Loved them!!
Gorgeous Flowers!Reviewed on 7/02/2013 Lynne M
Parsonage is a beautiful vendor for flowers. I worked with Sara at first and had a difficult time working with her. She could not give me any ideas or would blatantly tell me that I didn't need to decorate my ceremony space. I was a little put off working with her. She would be late sending me quotes and I would always have to call and email inquiring where my quotes were that were promised to me over a week ago. About 2 months before my wedding Sara was late getting updated quotes to us (again) and when we did receive them, they were all wrong. Wrong flowers, wrong corsages, wrong boutonnieres, wrong everything. I was very disappointed and devastated after I read such great reviews online. We requested a new consultant and was given Debbie. Debbie quickly erased any doubts in my head. She was quick to give us ideas and my faith in Parsonage was restored. When I first saw the flowers on my wedding day, I was blown away! They looked exactly how I wanted them and I was incredibly happy! Thank you Debbie and Parsonage!
Beautiful Flowers!Reviewed on 6/25/2013 Adrienne H
I booked Parsonage Events just to do my bouquets and grooms flowers. The did a great job understanding the rustic look and feel of my wedding, and listened clearly to my wishes for how the flowers should look. The flowers were spectacular! I even ended up asking them for some small help with decorations, which they were able to do easily.
Beautiful FlowersReviewed on 4/08/2013 M A
My bouquet was perfect!!! Fresh white peonies in full bloom! I was thrilled with the flowers! The reception guest table flower arrangements on candelabras were so heavy that they began to topple. Thank goodness the hall lowered them before any guests arrived. Even though this could have been a huge disaster Parsonage was great about the mishap. They sent my mom (my parents paid for our flowers) an email apologizing the night of the wedding. And she also received a phone call the next day! They were extremely apologetic and very professional. I would definitely recommend Parsonage and use their services again!
Listened.Reviewed on 3/29/2013 Britni L
I appreciated how much time Parsonage spent listening to what I wanted and the vision I was trying to pull together for our wedding. They were very flexible with my wanting to bring in alot of my own elements, and filled in where need be. The staff is extremely nice. I definitely recommend Parsonage Events!
Friendly staffReviewed on 2/15/2013 Stacey B
