One thing I really wanted for our wedding was beautiful flowers! I had a vision of the colors and types of flowers I wanted for everything, but didn't know how to it it all together. When I met with Jenna, she helped me put that vision together perfectly! On the morning of the wedding, Jenna delivered the bouquets to my mom's house where my bridesmaids and I were getting ready and they were the most beautiful and classiest arrangements I had ever seen! One of my bridesmaids made the comment that "those came straight out of a magazine"! The church and reception and cake were all decorated just the way I could have only imagined. Jenna helped make our vision come true and was wonderful to work with! You definitely get what you pay for with Avant Gardenia!

I cannot say enough good things about working with Jenna. She has amazing taste, and really gets to know the style you envision for your special day. She wants it to be perfect for you, and will do everything she can to do so. She is super easy to work with and responds quickly to emails. She is also extremely flexible, and allowed me to add things days before the big day! My flowers were gorgeous!!

After getting engaged in October, my fiance and I knew we wanted to get married as soon as possible. We set the date to Nov. 30th knowing that this would limit our options as far as venues, photographers, florists, etc. Another florist actually recommended I get ahold of Avant Gardenia. I spoke with Jenna on the phone 2 weeks before my wedding despite her having two other weddings on my date. She asked detailed questions about my vision for my wedding- winter, woodsy, and white. I received a quote, made some changes on my order, then confirmed delivery time. When I saw the flowers (centerpieces, boutineers, wristlets, bouquets) on the day, I was amazed. Jenna totally understood my vision and made it into something beautiful and very creative. The detail and personal touches cannot be matched elsewhere. I will recommend Avant Gardenia for anyone looking to make their special day even more magical. Thank you!!!

Jenna and her team did a wonderful job on our November 2013 wedding. I didn't have a very clear idea of what I wanted the flowers to look like, I just knew that I wanted the room to feel warm and inviting. Jenna was very easy to communicate with and responded quickly to and questions that I had. Our flowers completely blew me away! Jenna did a fantastic job of using the fall colors I knew I wanted and crated visually stunning centerpieces, bouquets, and our place card table was just breathtaking! Overall I was completely happy with the flowers that we got and the price we paid for them. Flowers are expensive, but Jenna's quote was right on par with the other quotes we received and she was willing to work with us to make our budget work! I would recommend Jenna, and Avant Gardenia to anyone planning a wedding, or other event needing flowers!

Jenna was amazing! Our flowers were one of our favorite parts of our wedding. She was always responsive to our proposal changes and lovely to work with. As an out of town bride, she helped me feel very comfortable before the big day. She has a great eye for design and helped us come up with some more affordable concepts. She met with us several times before the big day. I would highly recommend Jenna and avant gardenia-the flowers were amazing!

It is two weeks past my wedding and I am still looking at photos DAILY of the gorgeous flowers that Jenna provided for my wedding - Please let that be an indication of how amazing she is at her job.

I've always known that I wanted peonies for my wedding because I can't imagine anything more beautiful and I had multiple florists tell me that it wasn't possible since I was getting married in July and they are a spring flower - but somehow Jenna made it happen and they were better than words could describe. My bridesmaid dresses were royal blue and I wanted the girls flowers to be various shades of pink and coral, but these were colors that you couldn't dream up - So bright & bold and they popped perfectly against the blue.

As for my boquet, it was one of the prettiest things I've ever held - I cried when I saw it because it was just right and I felt the same way about all of Jenna's work from the decor at the church to the centerpieces. She's amazingly talented but beyond that, a joy to work with and you can tell she truly cares about her clients. I would recommend her to anyone!

Jenna of Avant Gardenia isn't just a florist...she is an artist. The bouquets and centerpieces she designed for my daughter's wedding were stunning. She blended different flowers and plants to create one of a kind arrangements...pure genius. Even our guests commented on the unique beauty of her designs. It was a pleasure working with her.

Thank you so much Jenna and Avant Gardenia. Our wedding was perfect!

Hands down - Jenna exceeded all of our expectations. She jumped in with less than two months before the wedding when we had NO idea what our vision for the wedding would be - and delivered something beyond what we could have imagined. We told her we wanted something that wasn't traditional "wedding" and that we liked structure. Our guests couldn't stop taking photos of the tablescapes saying that it was by far the best wedding floral they had ever seen. Jenna's ability to articulate structure and softness to compliment our style and the amazing venue was a demonstration of true talent.

I would highly recommend Jenna and Avant Gardenia.

Our experience in working with Jenna from the first phone call to the execution of the wedding day was top notch. Jenna was very professional, and her vision and artistry provided the smoothest part of the planning process. My daughter was over the moon with her bridal bouquet. All of the arrangements were stunning, much to the delight of our guests! We received so many compliments. We highly recommend Avant Gardenia. Jenna's attention to detail in bringing her beautiful artistry to the wedding helped to make the wedding a great success!

Jenna did the flowers for my daughter's wedding last month which was a
formal tented event in our backyard. We met with her and several other
florists a year ago and she won our vote hands down just based on her
personality and her grasp of the vision we had in mind for the venue
(rustic chic, beautiful but not formal, elegant but unstructured...and it was a black/white wedding with just little pops of color). She did a fabulous job and exceeded our highest expectations. She used flowers we loved plus a lot of unusual elements (baby kale, artichokes) and was even able to score some french anemones for my daughter's bouquet which are not in season in the fall. Not only is she a true artist, she is a great businesswoman. She always returned calls and emails in a timely manner, she was professional and accommodating (bringing her accessories over so we could actually see what she would be using) and she incorporated many of our personal items into the table settings perfectly. Her prices were also very reasonable, coming in several thousand dollars less than other vendors we had interviewed on the north shore. She's friendly, charming and very easy to work with and she has an ability to bring your dream to life.
I recommend her without reservation..you'll love her!

Jenna did the flowers for my wedding in October. She far exceeded my expectations. What she delivered was beyond anything I wanted. In working with her, I discussed using more texture over color and she delivered exactly what I wanted as far as a vision I had in my head.We had a lot of black and white in my wedding, with little pops of purples and greens. She was able to pull the colors of the wedding together perfectly, but I also felt that the style of the bouquets, the choice of flowers, and kales, and artichokes all really reflected my style. So there was more to it to the color, she added a whole other dimension with her use of shape and texture. Her eye for design is really unique to her. The flowers were one of the highlights of the wedding, but I also loved the props she used which really pulled everything together.
On top of that, she's just a great gal. I love her personality and spirit. You won't just want her to do your flowers, you'll want to be her friend too.
No hesitation on recommended Jenna for your wedding. She's the best.

My husband and I used Avant Gardenia for a few occasions - my bridal shower, our Cambodian wedding, and our wedding reception at the Hyatt Lodge. From the start - Jenna was so fun and great to work with. We met one time to go over what we wanted and what we didnt want (more so what I - the bride - wanted :) ). Jenna was a blast to work with. We sat and chatted about all of the possibilities and finally got a gret idea of what we all wanted.
The day of our weddings ( we had two - a Cambodian on Friday and a Catholic and full reception on Saturday) and all of the flower were outstanding! Jenna showed up on time (and super early) for both events ready to go. All of the flowers - from the gift table to the sweetheart table were outstanding. They were fresh, full and had the best color. My wedding was in October so I chose purples, greens, and ivorys and it was outstanding. My boquet had these great full purple colors- my flower girl had a little green flower ball - and my ring berrer had a bring green flower pillow! The centerpieces were even better than what i had expected. Even my guests commented on the different pieces throughout the ballroom.
When you work with Avant Gardenia - your expectations will be met more than you would ever expect. They are professional, fun, and deliver only the best. Avant Gardenia will MAKE your wedding!

I really cannot say enough about Jenna/Avant Gardenia. If you have the chance to work with her, I would recommend her. I just LOVED the flowers for my wedding. They were amazing. I met with Jenna and she helped shape my vision. She sent many detailed revisions (my fault for being indecisive) and was very responsive and helpful. Many of the flowers that I loved were not in season but Jenna created the same look with the flowers that were in season and when I saw them for the first time, I didn't even care about the types of flowers I really wanted. Trust me - hire Jenna!

There is absolutely nothing negative I could possibly say about Jenna & Avant Gardenia. Most brides know that planning your wedding can be a bit stressful ;) Jenna was the stability in my wedding planning. Jenna combined her professional knowledge and her one on one experience in a way that helped me in ways a bride needs while planning. The floral arrangements spoke for themselves, the guests at my wedding were in awe over how beautiful everything was. I have already had two separate people ask for Jenna's info and its only been 3 months since my wedding. Jenna brings a quality, an elegance and a romantic feel to the most important day of your life, the day you vow to share your life with someone! She shared her talent and I would recommend her to ANYBODY!

Our colors were dark purple and light green. I know nothing about flowers but Jenna put together amazing arrangements for us while keeping us in budget! We had high and low centerpieces. Both were unique and memorable. We wanted minimalist decorations at the church. What she put together was so beautiful without being overpowering. Jenna also made a complimentary floral arrangement for the alter in memory of my Grandmother who passed away a few months before the wedding. And to top it all off the flowers lasted weeks after the wedding! Really loved working with Avant Gardenia!

I am extemely late in writing this, but that doesn't take away from the fact that I love Avant Gardenia! For my wedding in October of 2010, I had been working with a different florist who just wasn't "getting it" I was referred to Avant Gardenia and had 1 meeting with her, in a starbucks, for 1 hour, and fired my other florist! Jenna got me from the very beginning and I loved the way everything turned out! I refer all of my bride friends to her! If I could do my wedding all over again, I would have pulled money from every other aspect of the wedding and just blown the room away with her design. She is innovative, creative, and very knowledgeable of her trade. Oh and she's really nice too! So, if you haven't booked with Avant Gardenia, call her ASAP!

I cannot even begin to describe what a beautiful job Jenna did on my flowers and center pieces at my recent wedding. Every single person in the room (including both my photographers) were in awe of Jenna's work. I am beyond impressed with her talent and her professionalism. She was also on time, and delivered everything in perfect condition.

Jenna is also great at helping you choose your flowers and arrangements. Her vision of the room was more than I could ever have imagined. It literally took my breath away when I walked into my wedding reception. Which is exactly what should happen to every bride on her wedding day. It's been a few days, but so many people have seen pictures from my wedding, and have demanded that I tell them who my florist was!

I would for sure use Avant Gardenia again for future services.

Our whole family was so happy with Avant Gardenia. Jenna was extremely professional, easy to work with and everything was beautiful.

Since I live in Denver I had to do most of our planning over email, which I was initially worried about it, but she made it very easy. I emailed her my visions, by style, and my budget. She worked with everything. She was also very helpful and honest with her opinions on all decor (linens, menus, colors) it was extremely helpful! She took time to meet with my at my reception site to discuss decor with the event director there and came to my parents house a few times to pick up some of the items I was supplying.

The day of the wedding she was punctual, calm and happy. Everything you want from a vendor on your wedding day. The following morning when my husband and I got to my parents house for a morning after brunch, all the flowers and decor had been delivered to our house by Jenna from our reception site. It was great to be able to use them again for the brunch.

The best thing I loved about her, was that I knew she wanted to please me. She wasn't a huge floral shop where i was just another person that needed flowers for that day. I also felt like a I could trust her and her opinion.

The flowers for my daughter's wedding were beyond anything I could have envisioned in my head. From the 1st meeting with Jenna, my daughter and I knew Jenna wanted to create just what the bride wanted. Our guests were amazed by the beauty of the arrangements at their table. I was so happy to be able to pamper them in this way. I managed to give away almost all the flowers by the next day. Being that many of the guests were from out of town, it was a challenge to make sure those who lived locally would take some flowers. Locals were happy to accomodate.
My daughter's bouquet was breathtaking. The bride took every advantage to hold her bouquet for pictures. The bridesmaids just loved their bouquets as well. The guests couldn't stop talking about the beauty of the flowers that complemented their dresses.

Amazing!!!! We absolutely loved our flowers. They were even better than what we imagined. Jenna was very understanding of our budget and made adjustments without sacrificing the overall look. They are still the talk of the wedding and even look stunning in all of our pictures! I highly recommend Avant Gardenia!

We hired Jenna to do our personal flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, etc) and a couple of arrangements for our ceremony. She was very flexible and patient with the many emails I sent changing my mind and making additional requests. Her prices seemed pretty average for the quality of work. Our bouquets were beautiful and the boutonnieres/corsages looked very nice as well. My only slight complaint was with the alter arrangements we had her do, which were on the small side and not quite what I was expecting. However, overall I think she's a wonderful florist and would definitely recommend her.

Jenna is so talented and has such wonderful ideas. We changed our overall idea multiple times, and she had no problem with it! She continued to be open to changes and was always suggesting new ideas she thought would work well. Everything came together so beautifully and she was very efficient. Definitely would love to work with her again!

Working with Jenna at Avant Gardenia was my favorite part of planning my wedding. We met early on in the planning process which is when Jenna really helped me create a vision for the wedding (I didn't have a planner). She has great ideas and an real overall passion for floral. Our bouquets were gorgeous and I received a number of comments from guests on our custom created centerpieces. Great vendor to work with!
