Heidi (who I believe is taking over the wedding portion of the business) was absolutely AMAZING. If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would. I cried walking into our reception because it was just THAT perfect. The wedding planner we had was horrible, but Heidi stepped in and... Read More grabbed the reins!

I was recommended by someone to use them for my wedding but I have called them twice, both times no answer and no return call from my voicemail. Not a great way to try to get business and I am giving up on them because if they can't return my calls now, what will happen closer... Read More to the wedding? Not worth the time. I will be finding someone else who actually wants my business.

Russ was a pleasure to work with. He had a great knowledge of flowers and made suggestions (which was great - I don't know much about flowers).

Having just gotten married and still reflecting on my special day, it's very obvious that the beautiful flowers provided by Russ really created the very best elegance at my wedding. From the arrangements on the pews at the church, to the bridal bouquets and boutonnieres, to the... Read More centerpieces at the reception hall. Not only did he make my brooch themed bouquet more beautiful than I could imagine, but he also went out of his way to do something he had never done before for me: a bed of roses to hold my seating cards. Russ was such a pleasure to work with, from the first meeting till the day of. Although he is super busy (because he's the best), he was always easy to get ahold of and made me feel like the only bride he needed to take care of. His team works just as hard to make sure everything looks lovely and runs perfectly the day of. Russ' prices are the best around, and I would recommend him to any bride looking for a florist! Thanks, Russ! You exceeded my expectations!

I cannot say enough good things about Russ Phillip! He did all of our flowers for our wedding, from the bouquets to the centerpieces and they were absolutely stunning!

Russ did my wedding flowers and I could not have been happier. I picked the "autumn sunrise" bridal package and the flowers were gorgeous and exactly as pictured. We received so many compliments. In fact, our reception venue, a restaurant, asked if they could keep the flower... Read More arrangements or buy them from us to have in their restaurant for the next few days. The value for flowers here is unbelievable. I have friends who have spent literally tens of thousands of dollars on wedding flowers and didn't look any better than ours. Our entire bridal package (bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, boutenirs, coursages, and flower petals for the ceremony) cost the same amount as just a single bridal bouquet at many florists I researched. Costco can't even compete. I don't know how Russ does it because there is no compromise on quality for the price. Finally, we had a morning wedding ceremony so were a little nervous about a florist who could get there on time. Russ delivered the flowers to our venue at 6:30 a.m. Russ also handled very well the logistics of our order, as we had several last-minute add-ons and changes. Brides, this is the place to go, and not even if you're on a budget!

You will not be disappointed with your flowers from Russ.
