I am so glad that I chose The Secret Garden as one of my vendors for my NY wedding! Both Bonnie and Danielle were extremely easy to work with and they created ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS bouquets and centerpieces for my wedding. During my first meeting with Bonnie, I told her what my... Read More vision was and that I had a strict budget for what I wanted. Bonnie not only brought my vision to life, but stayed within my budget. I had been to several other florists prior to The Secret Garden that were not respectful of my budget, so Bonnie was a breath of fresh air. Two nights before my wedding, Bonnie called me to tell me that one of the flowers that I had chosen for my bridesmaids' bouquets had arrived damaged from the supplier. She explained that she wouldn't feel right putting the damaged flowers in my bouquet and I so appreciated her honesty with me. She said she would substitute the damaged flowers with something similar and that she would make the bouquets bigger since the substituted flower was less expensive. As soon as we hung up the phone, Bonnie texted me several pictures of the new bouquet that she had created and it was just as gorgeous as all of her other work. The day of the wedding, the centerpieces and bouquets arrived in buckets of water. My mom was nervous about our centerpieces and bouquets having hydrangeas in them since hydrangeas don't last very long in the heat of the summer. Both my mom and I were shocked that a week after the wedding, the hydrangeas were still alive and beautiful! I can't begin to thank Bonnie and her team enough for the gorgeous flowers they put together for my wedding. I LOVED Bonnie's honesty, her constant communication with me, and her amazing talent. She is respectful of your budget, while still creating beautiful masterpieces. Thank you Secret Garden for helping me create the wedding of my dreams!!

Bonnie and her team are the absolute best and did and outstanding job at my 7/22/17 wedding.From our very first meeting I knew I was in good hands.

Bonnie and Danielle were outstanding to work with! They were so involved in everything and offered guidance, support, and assistance around every turn. I was thoroughly impressed by how much they contacted me throughout wedding planning, whether it was to set up additional... Read More appointments or even just check up on me (Danielle, who was very pregnant at the time, even went out of her way to email me a month before my wedding just to see how I was doing and if I needed anything). Secret Garden and all of its employees really did make me feel special leading up to our day and delivered gorgeous arrangements the day-of. My bouquet was stunning, the centerpieces were exactly what I imagined, and the corsages/mini-bouquets for our grandmothers and mothers were perfect; conversely, my husband's boutonniere was wilting the whole day, but I think that might have been because of the heat and no fault of Secret Garden. Additionally, as we are dealing with nature when we order fresh flowers, there was a problem with some of the flowers we ordered for our wedding. A few of the blooms were unavailable due to rain, wholesale purchasing, and other circumstances beyond Secret Garden's control. In spite of that, they still were able to provide us with gorgeous flowers. I've already recommended them to a friend of mine who is getting married in October and, after only one visit with one florist, she was sold on Secret Garden as well. The staff is kind, attentive, and imaginative and will do anything in their power to make everything picture-perfect.

From our first meeting, we knew that Secret Garden would be a good fit for our wedding. Bonnie is fantastic. She has a great personality, and totally gives you that warm, friendly, "I've known you my whole life" feeling. Within the first 20 minutes we were confident that she... Read More would make our visions a reality. And oh, did she ever! Firstly, our bouquets, boutonnières, and centerpieces were all gorgeous. Everything turned out exactly as we had hoped. Now at most weddings, that would be it for flowers, but my Husband and I had a very particular and quite extravagant setup in mind for our ceremony. It was going to be held in a large open grass field, so we wanted to dress it up a bit. We had tasked Bonnie and her team with creating 6 ten foot birch trestles (each covered in burlap and curly willow), and a wedding arch made of branches and pops of white roses. When she first heard our ideas she was excited and immediately started thinking of different ways to set everything up, AND how to save us some money in the process. On our wedding day Bonnie and her team totally transformed that field into exactly what we had envisioned, and we, along with all of our guests were completely in awe of how beautiful it all turned out. Bonnie - thank you so much for all of your hard work, your advice, and brilliant ideas. Tim and I could not be more grateful to you and your team for making our wedding day picture perfect. It was absolutely amazing.

I don't have an extensive enough vocabulary to effectively review how absolutely amazing working with Bonnie is. From our first meeting with her, my fiance and I both knew we wanted to work with Bonnie and Secret Garden. Bonnie is warm, excited, and has such a positive... Read More energy/aura that made us even more excited about the wedding planning process (she even made my fiance interested in selecting flowers, which was quite the feat!). One of the things I respect so much about Bonnie is her honesty. Never did we feel she was trying to upsell us, which is a rarity in the wedding industry. She worked well within our budget, helped us find flowers that were beautiful, and then subbed in some options that helped us save money in the long run. The week of the wedding, Bonnie was in constant contact, letting us know when flowers were ordered and delivered, and sent pictures so we could see how everything looked so that there were no questions at all. There were never any doubts as to the quality of Bonnie's work, or how everything would look, and the day of our wedding, the flowers completely exceeded our expectations. Not only were the bouquets all gorgeous, but we had a pretty complicated centerpiece arrangement, that was left in the hands of the Secret Garden staff. Upon entering the reception area, we were blown away by how perfect everything was - the Secret Garden crew arranged everything perfectly, with everything beautifully arranged. Our wedding flowers were absolutely perfect, from the bouquets, to boutonnieres, down to the centerpieces. We were absolutely blown away, and thoroughly enjoyed working with Bonnie to plan our wedding flowers. Secret Garden was affordable, without compromising quality and workmanship. We could not recommend Bonnie and Secret Garden more highly - she is amazing, and it would be impossible to feel anything but happiness after hiring her for your wedding!
