Since the start of the initial contact and consultation with Julie, she has been amazing. She listened to what both my FH and wanted and even took time out to allow my sons who had to join on meeting color, and pet her dogs. She has nothing but nice, responds quickly and understanding when we asked to make changes. I can not wait to see what our flowers will look like and am eager to get my mock piece. I will update the review on the quality of service once I have the flowers on the day of...but there is not doubt in my mind that she will be getting a high response!

I cannot say enough positive things about Catherine's Gardens. From the initial meeting, to picking up my BEAUTIFUL complimentary mock bouquet, to the delivery the day of, everything was professional, organized, and perfect. They have such a unique eye for creating incredible arrangements and I am beyond thrilled with how they photographed. We cannot say enough how perfect they help make our day, and hope that anyone reading this review chooses to go with them as their florist as well.

We loved our flowers from Catherine's Gardens! We worked with Catherine's Gardens for our wedding shower centerpieces, and everything for our wedding (bridal bouquet, wedding party flowers, centerpieces, church flowers, etc.). Julie was very easy to work, listened to what we wanted, and offered great suggestions going off of what we liked. We would highly recommend Catherine's Gardens!

Catherine's gardens does beautiful work! My flowers for my wedding were absolutely breath taking. The customer service was incredible there. The person who helped me pick out the flowers was highly knowledgeable about the flowers and just made the process of picking out the flowers so much easier for me.

Referred to Catherine's Gardens by our DJ, and we were so happy! The consultation with Julie was so easy - she listened to my vision for the day, offered excellent suggestions, and everything went so smoothly! Our venue was out of state, and their delivery fee was more than reasonable - in fact, I couldn't believe how reasonably everything was priced - i expected to spend double what we did on flowers, and couldn't have been happier with the cost! Julie was responsive and helpful and everything was excellent! Highly recommend! Thanks Julie!

A friend recommended Catherine's Gardens to me and I am so glad she did! From the moment we met Julie, she was kind and easy to work with. Not really having a solid vision in mind, we walked away with all our selections made- and that was only our consultation! She gave us a bouquet of orchids to leave with, which were beautiful. My fiance insisted we hire them then and there, but I wanted to see our options. I should have listened to my fiance!! Other options were more expensive and the people weren't as nice. We quickly contacted Julie and made it all official. Their shop is actually like an hour drive from us, but Julie made it work so we could do many transactions over email, fax, and Chase QuickPay. Aside from her and their flowers being wonderful, the price was perfect! We paid for our wedding ourselves, and were on a strict budget. We had 6 friends in our bridal party, 3 parents, 1 grandparent, 12 centerpieces, some extra for decor, petals for down the aisle, flowers for ourselves, and ready? the whopping price was $508!!!! She and her people had everything set up and ready to go well before our event :) Many guests commented how beautiful the flowers were too!! I highly recommend Catherine's Gardens!

I ordered my flowers, and paid in full the day of booking (they encourage this and give you 25% off if you pay cash). The contract and what I received the day of were two totally different things.The Thursday before my wedding, the owner called and said that the shipment of lanterns that were supposed to be my center pieces came in damaged. She swore up and down that she had attempted to do a rush order for replacement lanterns, but if they did not get in she said she would load the tables with lots of votive candles covered in twine. We both agreed we would wait to see what happened the day of, and if there were no lanterns on the table we would discuss a price adjustment Monday. The flowers were delivered around 11:30am. My dad was told to mist them every 45 minutes, which he did. We went to church at 2:00pm and at 3:00pm when the girls were recessing out of church, flowers were literally falling out of the bouquets. The florist had a green foam ball sitting in the middle of the bouquet (on top of stems) that the flowers were stuck into. When we got to the reception, of course my first interest was to see if the lantern centerpieces came in. They did not. I looked at the votive candles and there was no twine, instead it looked like she went to the dollar store and bought the cheapest candles and just put them on the table. Next, I went to look at the wood boxes that were stated clearly in the contract (and I paid a LOT of money for)-the wood boxes were merely cardboard boxes covered in wood grain contact paper. The contact paper wasn't even adhered properly, and there were bubbles making it extra noticeable that these were not wooden boxes. IT looked so tacky. The worst part of this experience was the customer service. I tried calling Julie 2x a day for 1 week. Everytime I called I was told she was in a meeting or couldn't make it to the phone. They are not professional and really don't care about the customer. Save yourself the disappointment.

I really am glad I went with Catherine's Gardens. The flowers at my wedding were absolutely beautiful and their price is hard to beat. I did a lot of research and compared other places, in the end I went with Julie because she knew exactly what I wanted. At times, it seemed like they were a little too busy to deal with me but I overlooked that because in the end, the results were amazing.

Julie had a ton of suggestions at my appointment. The flowers were beautiful and were exactly as how we discussed. I thought it was great that they offer a discount on the day of your appointment if you pay part of your order, and then there was also another option for a discount for paying the balance in full as part of their Labor Day Sale. I was able to make any changes if I had to, and keeping in contact with them was a breeze. Although, there was a miscommunication on altar flowers (I thought it was going to be a bouquet), it really wasn't that big of a deal and the flowers were perfect regardless. The only negative is that my and the bridesmaids bouquets were a little late from when they told me the flowers would be there.

I cannot say enough about how amazing our experience with Julie, Stephanie and the rest of the Catherine's Gardens team was. Catherine's Gardens is the in house florist for our reception site, and after looking at their website, I knew right away I wanted to go with them for our wedding. From the first time my mom and I sat down with Julie, I knew we made the right choice. Julie was so helpful and personable, and truly seemed excited about my wedding day and details. She offered great advice and really helped make my vision a reality. The price was very reasonable as well. We met with Julie again about three weeks before my actual wedding to go over everything, and she was reassuring and helped me to decide on the final style of my bridal bouquet so that it would not clash with my dress. She is so knowledgeable and passionate about her business. The day of our wedding, everything arrived in great condition and on time. My bouquet was the most gorgeous bouquet I have ever seen! It was exactly as I envisioned it. The bridesmaids bouquets were also beautiful, and we received SO many compliments on our centerpieces and reception decor. Catherine's also sent up our candy bar/buffet, and it looked amazing! We rented the jars and scoops from them, and provided them with all the candy a few days before and they took care of the rest! They were wonderful to work with, and their work and professionalism truly made our day!
