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.
