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!
Liz created a magical space for our ceremony and reception with her beautiful flowers. Spectacular is understated for how everything looked - her vision and eye for design is unmatched! Not to mention, she is an absolute joy to work with and took the time to get to know me personally - which was reflected in the flowers. She worked with me to make sure we stayed within my budget and found creative ways to reuse flowers between the ceremony and reception. I highly recommend Parsonage!
Kim was awesome! I really shopped around for florists and pricing. Parsonage cost less than others I met with, and Kim did a fantastic job. She really listened to what I wanted and had some really unique ideas to add. She was flexible with changes and add ons as the wedding approched and it all turned out perfectly. It was beyond my expectations. The bouquets were absolutely beautiful and the centerpieces were as well. I received many compliments on all the arrangements from my guests.
If I could hang with the girls at Parsonage every day I would! This was by far my favorite part of wedding planning. I loved finding inspiration together and developing photos into our own and then seeing it come to life. They all have such creative minds and are so mindful of working within your budget as well! They're some of the most genuine group of people to work with for your wedding. I had 110% faith and trust in them throughout the entire process and especially the day of my wedding. I love how they enhanced my style and exceeded all of my expectations. The details and décor was a huge priority to me and I wanted it to be perfect. One of my favorite parts was doing a mock-up of the centerpieces which truly helped since I'm such a visual learner. I wish I could keep planning and repeat this experience with them over and over again! Liz, you are an amazing, inspiring, and strong business woman! You rock!!
My wedding bouquet and bridesmaid's flowers were so beautiful that I immediately started crying when I saw them. My flowers were one of the most important things to me about my wedding and I was pretty nervous about trusting someone to make my vision come to life. I had one in-person meeting with Kim and immediately we clicked. She understood exactly what I wanted and gave perfect suggestions on things that would complement my bouquets and centerpieces. They were more gorgeous than I ever could have imagined and I am still floored by what a great job Parsonage Events did. Everyone at my reception was asking who did my bouquets and centerpieces because they were so elegant and different from anything they had seen at other weddings. Kim & Parsonage Events, THANK YOU. You can bet that I will be ordering any future arrangements through your team.
I loved working with Parsonage Events. I visited a few other florists before I made a decision, but Liz was the only one who really understood what I was looking for! I showed her some photos, and she asked me lots of thoughtful questions about what I liked and didn't like. She put together a Pinterest board with her ideas for me (and a detailed list of costs, which was very helpful), and I was in love! Liz and her staff were so kind and friendly, and really made me feel comfortable that they knew what they were doing. I was so happy when I saw our bouquets and our reception arrangements on the day of, I was so happy. Everything turned out beautiful!
Sara and the team at Parsonage Events helped create my dream wedding! From the day I walked in and sat down at their shop to work through my vision, I was blown away. Sara not only understood my vision but helped me bring together all my pieces and ideas to create a night I will never forget.It sounds cheesy but, during my wedding I had time in between the serving of the salad and main entree at dinner, to just sit and admire the work they had done with my head table, all of the other center pieces, and the decor, I couldn't stop smiling! I would HIGHLY recommend this vendor for any bride!
Where do I begin!? Sara C. my florist and my main contact was beyond amazing. I will never be able to thank her enough for putting together exactly what I've always dreamed of at my wedding on 5/21/2016 and even my shower. She was my sanity. The flowers were so fresh and incredibly beautiful and truly what I imagined. The bouquets and boutonnieres were flawless. We had endless compliments and I actually cried when I saw the flowers. Sara also helped me choose my candles, linens, centerpieces, table numbers, and more. Each detail was stunning. We also had all of our "paper products" printed and created by Cristina who was just as wonderful. I've never been so happy over invitations! Granted putting them together was the biggest pain ever but so rewarding and again, just endless, endless compliments. Sharon also helped throughout the year with all of the invoices, payments, and general contact which was a breeze. I will never be able to say enough wonderful things about Parsonage, their team, products, etc. They made my dream wedding a reality in the smoothest of ways and I am so grateful a friend from high school recommended them. I know my day would not have been the same without them.
The team at Parsonage Events is professional, fun, knowledgeable, and helpful. I worked with Liz on creating the perfect ambiance for our winter wedding. She gives such great advice and was always there for my most random questions. Honestly, whenever we would meet to chat, it was like sitting with a good friend discussing fun decorating ideas. I also used Parsonage for my table numbers, escort board, place cards, and directional signs. Sharon and Cristina helped in creating a design specific to our wedding. They both were very flexible, even when I had some last minute guests decide they wanted to attend. The designs that were created were wonderful and whimsical, perfect for our winter wedding. I cannot say enough about their services...just awesome! :).
I cannot rave enough about Liz at the Parsonage! She was wonderful! She completed my wedding with flowers and linens at such an affordable price. My wedding turned out beautiful! It was so nice that I didn't have to worry about a thing on the day of the wedding - the venue was set up and taken down and my flowers were delivered to the church. My bouquet was gorgeous! I cannot encourage brides enough to chose the parsonage!
I worked with Sara from Parsonage Events and she was absolutely fabulous! My husband and I came to her with a vision and she helped us bring it to life. The first time I met with her we discussed my Alice in Wonderland wedding theme and I showed her a few pictures of what I had in mind. I didn't have anything super specific and I don't know much about flowers. Sara was super understanding and made sure to suggest and explain her input. Let me tell you, she knows her flowers! She created a Pinterest board for us with our vision in mind and how she thought it could be best executed. The board was SPOT on with what we wanted. When it came to price, she asked us what our budget was and made a lot of suggestions as to how we could cut costs and get the best bang for our buck. I really appreciate that she didn't pressure us into spending more money, but instead worked with exactly what we wanted to spend. She also sent us an itemized list of how much each item would cost, from individual flowers to table props. The end result was spectacular. She used a few things that we had provided in addition to the flowers and decor that Parsonage provided. There was an element of surprise for everyone who attended, including my husband and I. Each table was uniquely designed, as well as the head table. The flowers were by far the prettiest flowers I have ever seen at a wedding. Sara did our set up and our clean up too, which was awesome. We didn't have to worry about anything. I literally only have good things to say about Parsonage and Sara. From the first time we met, up until the end of our wedding, Sara was nothing but genuine, creative, organized, and professional.
Perfection on every level. Cannot even begin to describe how fun it was to work with Liz and the entire Parsonage team. They are creative and were on top of every single detail from start to finish. They did an amazing job coordinating with our various vendors, and took care of details beyond flowers, including signage, linens, lighting, furniture rental, etc., which made things easier for us considering we were from out of town. And the result-- everything was beyond gorgeous and exceeded our expectations in every way. Choose Parsonage and you will not be sorry!
Sara at the parsonage is absolutely wonderful! She took my vision and made it better. She understood the look I wanted and made it happen. I was nervous not being able to see the arrangements prior but Sara was able to calm my nerves and assure me it would be perfect and she was right! Everything was perfect and would recommend the Parsonage for any event!
I can't say enough positive things about Sara at Parsonage. She did an incredible job with the flowers for our wedding - they were beautiful, unique and exactly the look I was hoping for. She worked with me on the budget and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome. She has an excellent artistic eye and I would completely use her and trust her judgment for any event in the future!
I was so glad I was referred to Pasonage Events! Liz did such an amazing job understanding what I wanted and making it a reality at our wedding. My flowers were absolutely amazing and even better than I expected. She also put together my table decorations which were perfect, so classy! Overall, I am so incredibly happy with the wok Pasonage Events did for my wedding. The flowers, chairs, table decorations, and linens made my wedding so gorgeous! I love looking back at all the pictures of how beautiful it all turned out, can even put into words. Liz is such a kind friendly person with a great personality. You can tell she loves what she does and works hard to give you the perfect wedding!
Liz and the team at Parsonage Events are a dream! They are incredibly responsive and positive, and are so creative. I found the Pinterest board they created for me incredibly helpful for visualizing our wedding, and was floored on our wedding day to see how beautifully it all came together. As an event planner, I continue to use them for events for U of M and am always thrilled with what they put together and the quality of service. I couldn't recommend them more highly.
LOVE love LOVE. Liz was so fun and easy to work with. We just gave her some colors and general ideas and let her get creative...and it turned out amazing!! So many compliments, brought me to tears, and multiple newly engaged wedding guests that wanted to know who did the flowers so they could book them for their upcoming wedding!
LOVE!!!!!Reviewed on 9/14/2015 Lisa L
I loved working with them!! Everyone on staff is SUPER nice, professional and overall amazing!! Liz is beyond sweet, creative and took so much of the stress off of me and my day. She was so in tune with what I wanted!! She took my pinterest/ideas/thoughts and turned it all into a more beautiful reality than I even had in my head. The flowers and decor are generally the biggest part of the wedding that people see. I got MY DREAM for the most reasonable price and it was PERFECT. I can't explain enough how beautiful and perfect everything turned out. Or how sweet and fun liz was to work with! Don't go with anyone else! This place is THE best.
I feel so lucky to have worked with Parsonage Events. They truly exceeded my expectations. I was so calm the morning of my wedding and then the bridal party's flowers arrived. I honestly cried when I saw my bouquet, It was breathtaking! When I arrived to the venue I cried again because I could not believe how unique and beautiful everything looked. I could not be happier and I would recommend them to anyone planning an event.
I cannot say enough good things about Parsonage Events! WE just got married this month, and Parsonage flawlessly executed all of our flowers for the ceremony and reception along with our linens and chair covers. During the planning process, we worked closely with Liz and she was so wonderful and helpful. She has an extremely creative eye, and knew exactly what I was looking for when I described our colors and theme. Her recommendations and the arrangements she proposed could not have been more perfect for our big day. Seeing our flowers and linens on the day-of, we could not have been happier with the result. The cafe au lait dahlias were stunningly gorgeous and we received so many compliments from our bridal party and guests. The linens were a perfect fit, and the table arrangements with floating votive candles really just completed the look and ambiance we were looking for. Through and through, Parsonage Events was just the very best. Their staff is professional, friendly, down to earth, knowledgeable and very talented. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Parsonage! -Christie Nichols (now Heike)
AMAZING. Sara and the Parsonage team - you made our wedding and the planning time leading up to it an absolute dream!! From flowers (stunning) to décor (cohesive, creative, and fabulous) to vendor recommendations (loved them all) to after-hours meetings (flexibility is key for the busy bride) to last-minute saves (creating a flower girl basket from a spare vase!)...we wouldn't change a thing and were THRILLED with how our big day turned out! As a bride who easily could have gone the way of stressed to the extreme, I was so grateful to have Sara and Parsonage Events in my corner - you filled me with confidence, were positive and professional communicators and planners, and truly recharged my wedding excitement more than once when I was starting to feel overwhelmed. A giant THANK YOU, we are forever grateful for the work you did to make our wedding special and so very "us."
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.
