Russell Anthony Florist
Our daughter was wed recently, February 2018. She chose a venue, hours away from our home. We wondered how we would find and work with vendors so far away. We anticipated a great challenge.
I received a glowing referenc...
e for a florist from an experienced wedding planner. Over the years, she had seen the work of a great many florists. Of them all, she had chosen Russell Anthony Florist of Bensalem, PA. for her own wedding. While he was local for us, he was hours from the venue.
After meeting, it was obvious to us that, not only could Russell do that which we wanted; he would also help us in all necessary areas that we were too novice to recognize. He suggested fine touches and embellishments to his already beautiful design. During our discussions, he was able to discern what my daughter would like for her bouquet as well as our tastes for the centerpieces before we could put our ideas into words.
As we browsed through his portfolio and walked through his warehouse, I was distracted. I could only think, Poughkeepsie, N.Y., 3 hours away, in February. I must be crazy. What happens if there is a giant snow storm and this guy could not get there. Russell explained that if the roads were not closed by the state troopers, he and his team would arrive. He would, if necessary, have a refrigerated truck and arrive two days early.
The wedding day arrived with no snow. The flowers were more than magnificent. They were almost as beautiful as my daughter. Pillars, with flowers atop, lined the ceremony path. Petals lined the “runway”. The Chupah was unique and incredibly adorned with beautiful orchids
My daughter’s favorite flower is the calla lily, and they were incorporated throughout the wedding.
The centerpieces were full and set well above eye level so as not to obscure our guests at the dinner. The tables and the “party” room had a most romantic and sparkling ambiance. Russell helped the bride and groom to have the wedding that one dreams about.
Russell Anthony is a truly wonderful and talented artist. More importantly, Russell was easy to talk with and easy to work with. He was eager to bring to “life” the brides and our visions.
We unconditionally recommend Russell Anthony Florist of Bensalem, Pennsylvania for your celebration.
