I am not much a flower person (know pretty much nothing) and Fran from Valleygreen was recommended to me by a relative. Fran was beyond amazing and helpful with the whole process. I showed him pictures I really liked and he ran with it! He made recommendations and suggestions and really was knowledgeable! His work was phenomenal and we couldn’t have asked for more from Fran! He really made sure that everything in terms of flowers and centerpieces were taken care of and we didn’t need to worry about any of it on our big day! The boutiques were breathtaking and the suggestions for the men were literally perfect! Put simply, Fran was amazing and the prices were extremely reasonable! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
Our daughter was married the end of July, but we waited until now to write a review because we thought the euphoria of the day would slant our opinion - no such luck, the pictures came back and the floral arrangements were even more beautiful than we remembered. During our first meeting with Fran at Valleygreen Flowers & Gifts he truly listened to our daughter’s thoughts and ideas for what she wanted. He made suggestions that met with her vision, while staying within the budget. Fran pulled up pictures on the computer of the flowers so she could see exactly what he was recommending. He even checked with Heather several times to be sure she was still happy with her selections. When we saw the bouquets and boutonnieres the day of the wedding we were in awe – they were all so beautiful. Then we saw the centerpieces . . . . . they were absolutely stunning, and added the perfect touch to the day. About two weeks after the wedding we received a check from Valleygreen because the flowers did not cost as much as they estimated. Needless to say we would not hesitate one second to recommend Valleygreene to family and friends. We are confident they would get exactly what they wanted.
Fran at Valleygreen flowers went above and beyond my expectations for our wedding. He is SO creative and such a visionary. Fran took everything I had in my head and made it a reality. He is so fun to work with and passionate about what he does which is really what you want in someone working on the biggest day of your life! We had Fran do all the flowers for the wedding party, tables, etc then he also decorated the vintage items I used in my wedding. We also created a tree trunk table that we used as the cake table and Fran did an unbelievable job of making it look beautiful and organic. I can't tell you how many compliments we got from our guests about all the beautiful flowers. When I was about to walk down the aisle at the church and they opened the doors, my first thought was "OMG look at the size of those flowers! They're gorgeous!!!" and then I cried happy tears down the aisle lol. Truly though, Fran and his amazing team are the people you want doing the flowers at your wedding. They go so above and beyond for their brides and you truly feel like you have someone who's going to make your day everything you dreamed of and more. I'm so glad we decided to work with Valleygreen Flowers.
Fran and his team at Valleygreen did an absolutely amazing job with the flowers for my wedding! In planning, Fran understood my vision from the start and had many wonderful ideas to add. His feedback was honest and helpful, which I truly appreciated. When it came to the big day, every single detail was even more beautiful than I could have imagined. From the bouquets, to the centerpieces, to all of the decor - everything was gorgeous! I am so grateful to the team at Valleygreen.
Affordable and amazing floral arrangements! Fran was extremely professional and is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to flowers and weddings! With just a few descriptions he put together a plan and knew exactly what I wanted! I highly recommend!
Fran Hammond and all of Valleygreen did an excellent job on my wedding flowers. The colors of the bouquets, boutineers, ceremony flowers, and centerpieces went perfectly with the burgundy and gray of my wedding. I would definitely use them for other parties!
Thank you Valleygreen for the wonderful job you did.
My son AJ and his bride Ashley had a wedding at the Abington Art Center. Valleygreen flowers and gifts presented us with the most stunning flowers for the event. Fran Hammond's ability to create the vision the bride described to him was truly amazing. His artistic eye and his patient skill of simply listening to what was Ashley's idea for that day went above and beyond, and was a true gift. The wedding was to have been an outdoor event. However, mother nature did not cooperate. It poured the whole day. Fran and his staff adapted quickly to the situation and created the magical dream that could not had been more breathtaking. The prompt , unobtrusive delivery and the kindness of the staff just made the day complete. We would definitely recommend Valleygreen Flowers & gifts fro any event and would most definitely use them again for any future milestones we are celebrating.
Fran and the rest of the staff at Valleygreen were amazing from start to finish! Just as they did for my sister's wedding two years ago, they made the process of picking out floral arrangements for our wedding easy and fun. They listened to what I wanted and provided guidance and suggestions for the parts that I was unsure about. They made me a beautiful flower crown that came out just the way I envisioned, and was probably my favorite part of my look for my wedding day! We are still hearing compliments from our guests who took the gorgeous centerpieces home and said they got to enjoy them for over a week after the wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend Valleygreen to any future brides looking for beautiful and affordable flowers for their wedding day!
Fran was very professional and has a great vision. He is so knowledgeable and accommodating. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a florist for their wedding or other event!
Fran and the folks at Valleygreen did an incredible job with all the floral arrangements for our wedding this past June. One meeting was all it took to convey our vision and for Fran to bring that vision to life. My bridal bouquet, bridesmaids flower, boutonnieres, etc. were absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. They were delivered to the venue and arrived right on time. Would absolutely recommend Valleygreen Flowers & Gifts to others as they helped to make the day as smooth as could be.
Valleygreen florist was amazing. They sat down with me to discuss what my vision was for the floral part of the wedding and helped me decide on flowers that would work with that. The bouquets turned out exactly as hoped for and looked fantastic.
I cannot say enough about Valleygreen...they did my bridal party flowers and they were above and beyond what I had expected. We sat with Fran and we went through everything. I was a bit concerned because my now husband wanted orange flowers included in our wedding and I thought that was a bit over the top, but Fran completely put me at ease. He explained that cobalt blue and orange would look lovely and boy was he right! The flowers really popped with the dresses! I always wanted a cascading bouquet but I am on the shorter side...Fran measured me and made sure it wouldn't be overbearing. I also am very pleased with the cost of my flowers..we had a medium/large bridal party and the price was less than what I was expecting to pay for everything we received. The delivery was right on time and easy! I highly recommend using Valleygreen!
The flower arrangements were beautiful-- really appreciated our meeting with Fran where he went over our different options!
Valleygreen did the flowers for our wedding and I am so glad they did! Fran and team was SO easy to work with from start to finish! He helped make my vision of exactly what I wanted fit my budget. When I walked into my Reception I had tears of joy, they truly made my dreams come true and much more! It was more than a pleasure working with everyone and their artist talents are unbelievable !
We used Valleygreen Flowers & Gifts for our October 2016 wedding. Fran, the owner of the shop was wonderful to work with. He is open to looking at photos that you have saved on your phone but also takes the time to talk you through many suggestions and ideas for flowers that will be in season around your wedding. He has so many previous wedding albums that serve as great examples of his beautiful work. After my first meeting with him I knew we wanted to work with him and I was not disappointed. The flowers that arrived at on our wedding day were 100x better then anything I could have pictured. Valleygreen provided flowers for our Church Ceremony, Bridal Party bouquets, boutonnieres and flowers for our reception venue center pieces. He is wonderful - do yourself a favor and go meet with him. You will not be disappointed. He also did my sisters wedding in 2011 - so he has a great track record!
Excellent experience! Working with Fran was incredible. He brought my thoughts to life and my wedding bouquet and center pieces were perfect!!! Thank you!
They nailed the look we wanted, and Fran was a wonderful, knowledgeable, patient expert on flowers!!
Valleygreen Flowers came as part of our wedding package, and we were so thrilled it introduced us to Fran and his team. Fran was so knowledgable about the flowers and led us through the process easily. He was honest about what we did and did not need in terms of floral accents for the church and other parts of the reception space. Loved working with them!
I can't begin to say enough about how awesome Fran and his staff are. They listened to my vision and made my dreams come true! They were honest with me too about pricing and what they could and could not do. For example, we had a fall wedding and wanted to incorporate pumpkins... the price we would pay for the pumpkins from Valleygreen would be a premium so they suggested we get on our own which we did and we saved a ton. We will use Valleygreen for all of our events in the future!
I decided to look into Valleygreen for our wedding because my husband's company works closely with them. As soon as I met with Fran to go over what I had in mind I was sold. While I had problems with other florists, Fran instantly knew exactly what kind of look and feel I was going for. He offered suggestions that amplified what I envisioned or suggestions on things he thought we could cut. All while making sure I stuck to my budget. When I walked into our reception space I was floored. Valleygreen nailed it. The bouquets were gorgeous, the centerpieces and garlands were stunning, and all the little details were perfect. There were conscious of our budget and our vision through the entire process and they far exceeded what I pictured in my mind. It was so much more perfect than I had hoped it would be. Fran and the Valleygreen Team, you guys are my hero!
PERFECT!!! The flowers for my daughters wedding were beautiful. she had a elegant rustic look with lantern centerpieces. They turned out better then we could ever imagine. Fran and his staff did an awesome job on the flowers. I would not go anywhere else for flowers.
Fran at Valleygreen was very accommodating and easy to work with. He had great suggestions at our appointment, the flower delivery came on time, and everything was beautiful! I would highly recommend Valleygreen flowers.
Flowers were beautiful and service from valleygreen was amazing! We had peonies and roses that stayed great all day.
It was truly a joy working with Fran and the team at Valleygreen. Prior to meeting with Fran, I had a few ideas for my flowers, but felt strongly about adhering to my budget as we required a lot of centerpieces. To stay within our budget, we seriously considered doing the flowers ourselves but chose to meet with a few florist to get an idea of the cost. I cannot stress enough how happy I am that we decided to work with Valleygreen. Fran and his team brought my ideas to life just below our budgeted amount, and all of the flowers looked exceptional! On the day of the wedding, everything was delivered to the house, church, and reception area on time and was set up exactly as planned. It was so great to have one less thing to worry about on such a busy day. Thank you Fran and team for a wonderful experience!
