Scott and the whole crew at American floral are not only amazing with their flowers they are amazing with their customer service. I am sure Scott doubles as a therapist. The flowers that Scott did for our wedding and my bridal portraits were absolutely amazing! Everyone at the wedding is still talking about how beautiful everything was. I am not a picky bride so I pretty much left everything up to Scott. And with very little help from me he took everything I imagined and made it so much better! Thank you Scott and thank you American floral for the most beautiful flowers and arrangements I have ever seen. I will never be able to thank you guys enough!!

AMAZING work from Scott Jones and the American Floral team! Scott truly loves what he does and, most especially, ANTICIPATES needs that an overwhelmed bride and her mother would never have thought about! Having worked at so many venues nearby, he often already knows the layouts and best spots for flowers. We are so blessed to have worked with him! I HIGHLY recommend Scott!

I had an awesome experience with Scott. Since my husband and I both work out of the country, we did everything from a distance. Scott was always available via email and would work with me to set up a time for telephone conversations also. I sent him tons of pictures and told him what I had in mind as far as my vision and he did the rest. He’s so friendly and very knowledgeable and helpful in every area of the wedding planning process. He’s also great about helping with ideas and suggestions. Everything was absolutely beautiful! I would certainly recommend him again.

From our very first meeting, Scott Jones was a pleasure to work with for my daughter's wedding. He listened, gave suggestions, and his sense of humor calmed this out of state Mother of the Bride down on more than one occasion. He was very honest and up front with all estimates. I was very worried about the arrangements due to our budget, but we left it up to him to choose the flowers. He and his staff created absolutely gorgeous arrangements for the wedding and reception! My daughter's bouquet was exactly what we envisioned, and all the flowers looked wonderful in the pictures. I will definitely recommend him to everyone.

American Floral was INCREDIBLE! Scott, the owner, provided impeccable service and was extremely helpful the entire process! I actually left my previous florist because she was so unresponsive and scatter-brained. A friend recommended American Floral so I went to them and was amazed at the difference! Scott helped me figure out how to get the best flowers for my budget and was very honest and truly wanted to help me. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and I didn't have to worry about a thing. He also returns emails very promptly and meets with everyone personally. Definitely pick American Floral! They will help you create a beautiful vision for your wedding!

I was so pleased with Scott Jones at American Floral, and his willingness to make my wedding flowers fit my vision and my budget! Not knowing much about flowers myself, I was able to tell him the "look" that I was going for, and he definitely exceeded my expectations! The altar arrangements in the church were stunning, and the reception centerpieces were just the exactly what I had pictured in my mind! I highly recommend American Floral to anyone looking for a wedding florist!

I don't know where to start on Scott at American Floral. From the first meeting I had with him to decide on a florist, he shared my vision for my floral arragements and was just as excited as I was. I completely trusted him and felt at ease with my decision to have him take complete creative control. I just told him the colors and asked to add peacock feathers. I saw my flowers for the first time on my wedding day and was floored. They were far more beautiful than I could have ever imagined, my bouquet was perfect and the arch and centerpieces were stunning. We had orchids for the men's tuxes and they were amazing, simple, exactly what I wanted. Scott went FAR beyond my expectations, I still have compliments on how beautiful the flowers were....I could go on for days, but the short version is that I truly believe every bride should at least meet with him and see his work before making a decision to go elsewhere!

Omg Scott and his team at American Floral are fantastic. They are a little more expensive than other florists but their work is worth every penny. They are very flexible and are able to create your dreams and visions even if you can't quite describe exactly what it is you want. Scott also helps you formulate a vision if you have no idea what you want. Both my bridal portrait bouquet and wedding bouquet were perfect and exactly what I asked for. They also made hair pieces for my girls to match, a gorgeous cake topper and table centerpieces. The staff is very friendly and they offer flexible payment plans so you're not bombarded during those last 2 weeks when all your other vendor payments are due.

Omg Scott and his team at American Floral are fantastic. They are a little more expensive than other florists but their work is worth every penny. They are very flexible and are able to create your dreams and visions even if you can't quite describe exactly what it is you want. Scott also helps you formulate a vision if you have no idea what you want. Both my bridal portrait bouquet and wedding bouquet were perfect and exactly what I asked for. They also made hair pieces for my girls to match, a gorgeous cake topper and table centerpieces. The staff is very friendly and they offer flexible payment plans so you're not bombarded during those last 2 weeks when all your other vendor payments are due.

Scott was incredible. Very easy to work with, even when I started to enter panic mode a few weeks before the wedding. I pretty much just left everything in his hands. And I am glad I did! All of our bouquets and arrangements were breathtaking! He did a magnificent job! My pictures look so incredible with these beautiful flowers!

We can't say enough about Scott Jones and his staff at American Floral! We went in to see them in the early stages of planning the wedding with ideas of what we wanted. Scott was so easy to talk! By the time we left, we were laughing like old friends. Scott, Jeff and the rest of the staff took our ideas and brought them to life with an expertise that was astounding. The arrangements were absolutely beautiful and went beyond our expectations. We are still receiving compliments from our guests. Along with the arrangements that were discussed, we found several little surprising touches during the wedding and reception that really stood out, such as an arrangement and petals in the ladies' room. We couldn't be more pleased, and will continue to use American Floral for all of our flower needs in the future.

I can not say enough about Scott and American Floral. I was soo paranoid during the planning process about what the flowers would look like. I knew the colors I liked and a couple of flowers but not much detail. Scott assured me not to worry but I still did. When that van pulled up the day of the wedding....I freaked out!!!!! I cried b/c they were more amazing than I imagined! Everyone at the wedding raved and throughout the maddness of that day...I still found myself staring at my bouquet and the other arrangements!! They also worked with my tough budget with no problem!

Scott was so helpful!! I really didn't have a clue as to the kind of flowers I wanted. I just knew what I didn't want! He was patient and understood my concerns about cost (my fiance and I were paying for our entire wedding ourselves). In the end, he came up with gorgeous flowers for my wedding and reception and it barely put a dent in our budget!!

LOVED Scott and his team! Our flowers were absolutely beautiful. The wedding cake didn't turn out how I had wanted it, and Scott helped one of my friends and me rearrange it on the cake table and adding a few flowers to make its blemishes less noticeable. Scott is a joy to work with and helped make wedding planning much less stressful.

Scott is THE best! We met with another florist early on who wasn't attentive or easy to get responses from. American Floral is totally the opposite. Scott emailed or called me to answer questions I had immediately, and was incredibly easy to work with. He gave us ideas, but was 100% about getting us what we wanted. The day of the wedding I was blown away by the work he did. My bouquet was more than I dreamed of, and the flower pieces he put together for our ceremony and reception got compliments all night long. Since it was so hot out, Scott made two trips to my venue the day of to ensure my flowers would look great come time for the ceremony. I would recommend everyone to work with American Floral, because not only will you get beautiful flowers, Scott will treat you like a good friend! I honestly can't say enough of how happy I am that I got to work with him!

While they were pretty, the arrangements weren't quite what we asked for. The delphiniums were placed in the wrong bouquet and the bouquets weren't quite what I was expecting. Pretty, but different.

I really expected more out of the mason jar arrangements which consisted of two hydrangea bunches in a mason jar with two pieces of ribbon glued criss cross to the bottom. These we hung from shepherds hooks. These two arrangements were $75 which was pricey for what it was.

As for the flowers themselves, some of the flowers were dying the same day, while a few others were still very pretty all through our honeymoon.

I will tell you both my fiance (now husband) were both extremly disappointed with the service we recieved from American Floral.

We live out of town so our time was limited to meet with florists. American Floral was one of three florists in Irmo/Columbia we met with. We chose them because they were prompt get back to us and had beautiful ideas on how we could transform our venue. We also appreciate they were "hometown" and had done our wedding venue several times.

I understand floral costs can change with what flowers are in season. However, after being very clear on what we wanted, my bridal bouquet was different than the origional photo. At times, I grew very frustrated with the owners my fiance (now husband) spoke with them instead. When speaking with the owner from time to time, he was very offensive and at one time saying "I have brides coming and and out of my store all the time, it won't hurt my feelings if you don't do business with me." A statement like that is rude and has no business coming out the mouth of someone who is driven by customer satisfaction.

To be fair, all the flowers were beautiful. However, my bridal bouquet was not what we were promised and therefore, I feel misled.

Perhaps we didn't spend enough money on flowers?

I did have a conversation with our wedding planner about American Floral, we will not reccommend them for future use.

I contacted Scott Jones of American Floral in Irmo, South Carolina. He was flexible on working with me from long distance. He was kind and approachable. I wanted simple flowers with not a lot of detail. They had many books to go through for me to pick out the florals that I had in mind. There were a few bits of miscommunication. During one of my visits in town, I sat down and talked to him about details. One of my main concerns was price. Once we talked about what I was looking for, he put together an estimate and got back with me later that day with the quote. Just a warning to all you brides out there. Supposedly, there are two prices. And the price he gave me was a "groom's rate"? I did not find out that I owed an additional $895 until a week before my wedding when he told me I needed to pay a remainder of my bill. Even when I gave my credit card information, never was there a mention of an additional charge until a week before the wedding. Which every bride will find out there is no time for additional last minute changes in florists or prices. I just wanted to mention this to you brides to make sure you ask for the "bride's rate" as well as the "groom's rate" when talking to a florist, so that there are no unexpected surprises.

My colors were ivory and black, so we went with Virginia Roses because they are mostly ivory in color. The vendor showed up to the site with the ivory flowers, but white ribbons were used to tie all the bouquets, bouteonniers, and corsages instead of my color ivory. I had to pull all the ribbons off the arrangements last minute in a wedding dress and go without ribbon detail.

The vendor offered to make a garland for the flower girls instead of the traditional rose petals. Also a floral collar for my dog. Both of these arrangements came out beautiful and were both unique unexpected ideas for a wedding. It was a sweet touch and a great idea from the vendor.

I hope this detail helps you brides in getting the best service from your florist.
