While Nancy mostly worked with my mother because I was busy planning other aspects of my wedding, I wanted to take the time to thank Nancy and team for such an amazing job. In the beginning of the wedding planning process, flowers were just not a priority for me at all, but my mom insisted on hiring a florist. I am so so so happy that we did. Not only did Nancy perfectly capture my vision, she went above and beyond by working with the person who rented the porch wraparound (to keep guests on the porch warm during my fall wedding) to us to make sure it wouldn't look messy in photos, since we were having our ceremony in front of that porch. I also want to point out that Nancy was totally understanding about the fact that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on flowers, and was perfectly happy to let me DIY table decorations to my heart's desire. In the beginning, flowers weren't important to me at all and now that the wedding is over, I can't stop staring at pictures of my gorgeous bouquet and ceremony backdrop. That is a testament to Nancy's amazing talents. Thanks for everything!

Overall, my wedding florals came out nice, but it was a difficult process, pricey, and (in some cases) not what I asked for. I received my initial quote, and we met once again about months out from the wedding and she prepared a trail bridal bouquet. We made some more adjustments but it took weeks to finally get a revised quote. This revised quote had many price and item discrepancies (i.e., missing items, price increases, double charged items). Since it was not a hard itemized list, it was difficult to follow after numerous revisions. I ended up going into the store front to discuss face to face. In the end, I never received a true itemized priced receipt; it was more of a generalized pricing guideline.
-I paid $8/foot for greenery garland sans florals. Although this garland was plenty for the table spread, $8 per foot is pretty steep. Additionally, the greenery they selected had orange berries on them. Not the end of the world, but also not what I asked for.
-I asked for greenery on my three cakes (see photo attached). This cost $65. This is extremely overpriced for what I received.
-I requested that my bridesmaid bouquets would have only greenery. Unfortunately, they decided to include white flowers throughout all the bouquets even though I made it clear to only have leaves.
-My bridal bouquet did not include the O'Hara rose as promised. This is a distinct white and peachy tone rose with a large and loose pedal. As you can see from the photo below, they were not included at all. A plain white rose was included. I also included a photo of my trial bouquet (you can see the large peachy rose front and center).

Overall, they made is difficult, were not responsive, always seemed too busy and never remembered me or my event details, and they did not follow my requests for my details.

Eileen and the staff at In The Garden absolutely blew us away! They were so helpful and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. Eileen understood exactly what we wanted and the execution was flawless. When we walked in to our venue on the day of our wedding we had goose bumps. The venue never looked so beautiful. Our centerpieces were more beautiful than we ever could have imagined and our wedding arch was gorgeous. The bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets were breathtaking. The pictures from our wedding day look like they belong in a magazine. We highly recommend In The Garden- they are truly talented and were a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much Eileen and In The Garden for helping to make our day so beautiful <3

First off, Nancy and her team at In The Garden are extremely attentive and very kind. That being said, I was a little disappointed with my wedding flowers. My bouquets were very underwhelming; I asked for an all white/cream based bouquet with greenery for myself and my bridesmaids. When the flowers were delivered, I felt that they looked nothing like how I imagined. My bridesmaids bouquets were all different sizes, too. The boutonnières were nice, but were all different sizes as well. I also noticed that the flowers were browning and didn't look fresh. All of this aside, my centerpieces and other florals that were created for my wedding day were absolutely beautiful. In the end, I would recommend In The Garden to new brides, but would definitely say to be clear in what you want, provide pictures, and follow-up to ensure you are getting exactly what you are paying for/expecting.

Working with In the Garden was an absolutely amazing experience. From the very first consultation until the wedding day, everyone there was especially helpful and accommodating. Kathryn, Eileen, and Nancy all did a wonderful job putting our flowers together and setting up at the venue. Thank you for helping to make our day so beautiful and everything we ever wanted!
