Exceptional & ArtisticReviewed on 9/02/2013 Elisa F
We LOVED Tim and we LOVED the floral arrangements! My parents, fiance and I went to a bridal arrangement warehouse that shall not be named and the result was a nap for the fiance. Later that day Mom, Fiance and I walked into Tiger Lily to meet Tim, who engaged and won over the fiance with his passion and flip book encyclopedia of flowers. From that initial meeting, we knew that we would work with Tim and were sure that he would be our favorite wedding vendor! Tim is an artist who really grasped the whole concept we were trying to explain to him. I really appreciated that he worked with us to get our favorite flowers and achieved the look we were going for, but also pushed back if we had an idea that he didn't think would look best. It is amazing how well he executed the ideas that were in my head after only a short meeting. The flowers were of exceptional quality. They looked absolutely fabulous throughout the event and filled my mothers house for a while. I was so in love with the flowers - over 14 varieties! That my mom spent a day perserving them in various ways while I was away on my honeymoon. Thank You Tim!

Great ExperienceReviewed on 8/01/2013 jackie l
I used Tiger Lily for my wedding and couldn't have been happier. From start to finish Tim was easy and fun to work with. He loves what he does and it shows in his work. Not only was it great working with Tim but the flowers were beautiful. I would highly recommend Tiger Lily!!!!
I am so over joyed with the amazing work of both Tim and Jennifer of Tiger Lily By Encke Florist. Tim was so helpful, fun and had very creative ideas. Both of them truly created what we envisioned for both our ceremony and reception flowers. We knew right away that we wanted to work with them. Every suggestion I loved. I wanted to have our table centerpieces to have a very personal touch, so my husband and I saved all of our bottles of wine that we received as gifts from our engagement party and from other friends and family. My bridesmaids and I did some DIY and frosted and flocked the bottles to look like snow (We had a Winter Theme) . Tim and Jennifer used these bottles as the Vases and created a spectacular center piece. Seeing the first sample brought tears to my eyes. When I walked into the reception Ball room with my husband, We were both over joyed. It was exactly what we wanted. Tim also created a Masterpiece for our ceremony. On either side of us stood 6 ft birch and willow branches, with accents of White Dendrobium orchids, that completely surrounded us. I will definitely use Tiger Lily again in the future.
Wow. I don't think I could be happier with my flowers from Tiger Lily by Encke. Tim is the sweetest. His smile, positivity, and immediate clear understanding of what I wanted for my wedding made me book their services for my 150 person event. After showing him a few pictures from Pinterest, sharing a few likes and dislikes, Tim's creativity sprung to life. He described a gorgeous pair of branches with dripping flowers for our ceremony, centerpieces that were original and indicative of my personality, and bouquets that gracefully enhanced everything. I don't know much about flowers, but Tim pulled out books of pictures of different blooms to show what he was describing. His knowledge of the venue (Maritime Parc) was a huge help. Tim's wife and partner brought his designs to life in an even more perfect way than imagined. And, after a request to make one small change (literally 1 - to remove a small amount of long green grass - no idea what it's called - change), she came through and somehow made the final centerpieces more beautiful than the sample. What really set this duo apart was that they stayed at the venue to move and reset the centerpieces behind our sweetheart table. Something they easily could have had the venue do, but they did it themselves to ensure it was perfect. It was. On top of all of this, Tim made tweaks to his original design to stick to my budget. To note - his original pricing wasn't too far off. I would recommend this florist a million times over and would use them again in a heartbeat.
Tiger Lily ForistReviewed on 10/18/2015
I highly recommend Tiger Lily florist in Teaneck, NJ for wedding flowers. Their designs are beautiful and the choice of flowers unique. The owner, Tim, listens carefully to what you are requesting and provides the flowers and designs that you want.
No centerpiece workReviewed on 7/16/2015 Vicki A
We only used Tiger Lily for our bouquets, boutonnieres and flowers for the arch. I will say we were very particular with them and only wanted to spend a certain amount of money but, they worked with us and the flowers turned out very pretty. Gayla was great to work with even though we questioned everything, she worked with us and did what we wanted and gave us suggestions. They did a great job with the flowers on the arch too.
From the moment I met Tim Blunk at Tiger Lily, I knew he was the perfect florist for our wedding. Every meeting with Tim was fun and exciting, and his relaxed yet professional demeanor made him a great vendor to work with. With an MFA, Tim is truly an artist and his creativity, attention to detail and floral quality exceeded all our dreams and expectations. I came in with a picture of an inspiration bouquet and a vision of the day, and Tim (& Jennifer) transformed this vision into reality. He designed an ethereal chuppah, gorgeous bridal and bridal party bouquets/ groomsmen boutonnieres, amazing, unique centerpieces and even went above and beyond by putting together lovely escort card table. It is hard to put into words how beautiful the flowers were, and how much we loved working with Tim and Tiger Lily Weddings. If you are a bride looking for a true artist to take an idea and vision of your day and transform it, Tim and Tiger Lily Weddings is for you. My family and I are so grateful and thankful for all he contributed to our wedding. HIGHLY recommend!!
Amazing flowers & wonderful people - win/win situation!Reviewed on 10/03/2014
From my first call with Tim at Tiger Lily, I just knew that I had found my florist. I'm sure many would agree that it feels great when you have that strong gut feeling that this is a good decision! He didn't disappoint...quite the opposite. He was a master and a co-creator of the final results. I went to Tim with a concept and ideas on what i was looking for...i sent him images of the venue so he could get a feel for it himself and then he helped me set up a magical ambiance for our magical night. He stuck to my budget, he came up with creative ideas, he personally delivered and set up the flowers himself without me having to be there, he made me laugh and allowed me to breeze through things totally stress free and happy. I sincerely, highly recommend Tiger Lily as part of your wedding experience...they're just amazing!
Fantastic Flowers and ServiceReviewed on 9/09/2014 Meroux K
We highly recommend Tiger Weddings for any couple looking for a florist who is keen on making your wedding day look perfect. We met with Tim for a consultation and he knew exactly the theme we were going for. His flower choices matched the colors we wanted and he helped put us at ease throughout the whole process. He worked within our budget and the wedding pictures came out perfect. Tiger Weddings went the extra mile in setting up all the flowers on a rainy day and we couldn't be any happier with the results. Go visit their florist shop. You will not be disappointed!
Creative and Unique!Reviewed on 9/02/2014
We couldnt be more pleased with the arrangements, professionalism and creativity we were provided with. We gave them our color palette and some flower choices and let him go from there. The result was beautiful, unique, and artistic. Thank you Tiger Lily for making our day so special!
amazing service and flowersReviewed on 7/20/2014 Laura S
Tim and Tiger Lily/Tiger Weddings were so amazing and all of the flowers at/for our wedding reception were gorgeous. My husband and I had ideas for colors/color theme for the wedding but were open with actual flower types. Tim sat down with us and helped us choose flowers that fit our vision but would also work with each other and the hot weather in July. Also Tim was so helpful as he lead us through flower choices that fit the colors we were looking for and that were in season at the time (important to us for using local growers but Tim would have gotten us any flowers that we wanted). Any time I contacted Tim he got back to me ASAP, was helpful, and so nice to talk to. My bouquet and the bridesmaids were beautiful and the centerpieces were perfect for the tables and venue. Whatever style of flowers you are looking for – modest, elaborate, modern, classic, colorful or more neutral Tim and Tiger Lily/Tiger Weddings will do an amazing job.
The best florist in CharlestonReviewed on 7/17/2014 Megan M
I am so very thankful we had Gayla and Tiger Lily as our florist! She sat down with us multiple times over our 15 month planning process and as our vision evolved, she helped us select gorgeous floral combinations to accent our vision. Gayla took extensive notes during our meetings, showed us examples of everything, and sent promptly sent us an annotated spreadsheet with cost breakdowns, even as we made slight changes at each meeting. It made keeping track of everything so much easier! I absolutely love wedding florals, and it is one of the details I feel is centrally important to setting the mood of the day. When I saw our florals on the day of, I was completely blown away - everything exceeded my expectations!!! I still cannot stop looking at photos of our bouquets and the arrangements Tiger Lily created. Our florals were definitely a show stopper! As a side note, I could not believe that when my husband and I returned from our honeymoon two weeks later, there were still several vases of fresh flowers remaining from our wedding. So lovely.
Design decorReviewed on 7/27/2013 Maria E
Tim and Jennifer were absolutely a pleasure to share our day with. They were professional and fun. Preparing for a wedding can be difficult but they made this process a breeze. The confidence they provided helped us to feel at ease and we knew we had made the right decision. They are great designers and their excellent attention to detail will always be appreciated.
Love Tiger LilyReviewed on 11/14/2012 Stephanie N
Tim and his team are great. My flowers were beautiful. They are patient and willing to help you develop your ideas. I was so happy with the results. They took all my suggestions, ideas and made it work! Not one complaint. My family and I LOVED my flowers.
Beautiful!Reviewed on 9/06/2012 Dayna C
Easy going and wonderful experience from start to finish. Tim really took care of us, prompt with getting back to us with answers to questions, worked with us on our budget. We went in with pictures and ideas of what we would like and we were not disappointed, in fact, it was better than what we hoped for! We had flowers for our ceremony and our reception. Everything they did for us was amazing and we could not have asked for anything more!
Absolutely GorgeousReviewed on 7/29/2012 Gina L
Tim was a pleasure to work with. I know very little about flowers and only had a slight idea about what I wanted. After explaining to him the setting of the wedding and giving him a color scheme to work with, Tim was able to come up with something better than I could have every imagined. The bouquets were gorgeous and unlike anything I've ever seen before. I had also asked him to decorate the cake with some flowers, again with minimal instruction, and it came out gorgeous! I had also requested a simple arch for the wedding ceremony on the beach, and again my expectations were exceeded. I highly recommend Tiger Lily by Encke. They are very knowledgeable and artistic with everything they do.
Favorite VendorReviewed on 6/18/2012 Angela B
I got married in NYC last year and picked this vendor by simply doing a google search for a florist in my area...I'm so happy I found them! Tim and Jen were super creative, hands-on and sweet. I was blown away when I walked into my venue; all their work was above and beyond what I had expected or imagined. Their work was impeccable and I look forward to working with them again on future events!
Loved working with Tim/Tiger LilyReviewed on 6/18/2012 Stephanie S
Tim was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the very beginning. He is amiable and quick to respond; more importantly, though we weren’t 100% certain what we wanted for our arrangements, he made us feel very comfortable that he knew what we were going for (ahem, a Cornell-red theme) and delivered beautifully. Tim was so helpful in our conversations, entertaining our ideas and offering his own – all while staying aware of our price point. The one thing I knew I absolutely wanted was red callas for my bouquet and finding them seemed bleak at first but they found them and I could not have been happier with our bouquets! Our altar arrangements were lovely for the church (albeit a bit lost because we forgot about the pre-existing Easter decorations) but they doubled perfectly as decoration for our head table. Our submerged orchid centerpieces were exactly what we wanted and filled the space wonderfully (our venue space was a bit larger for our guest count) and Tim introduced a great unique factor, bringing artistic coil and smaller flowers to the outside of the tall vase atop a round mirror. To top things off, Tim sent a card with a kind note (it had callas on the front) – it was the perfect testament to how thoughtful he had been through the whole process. We’d recommend Tim and Tiger Lily to any couple looking for a little bit of comfort amid the craziness (and fun!) that is planning a wedding.
