Catherine's Gardens did an excellent job with the flowers for our wedding! They were beautiful and they did a great job collaborating with our reception venue. They picked up and cleaned their vases and brought them back filled and ready to set up the reception centerpieces. They were on time dropping off different flowers at different locations and were very reasonably priced. Our initial meeting was a little intimidating because I wasn't totally sure of numbers and what I exactly wanted or needed and the woman I met with seemed a little annoyed that I did not have like an order ready to give her, but she did take the time and help me figure out what to order. They did do a great job with the order, great service at the wedding, and great price, just not a wonderful in person experience when we placed our order. But would recommend them for sure!

PLEASE READ TO DAVE YOURSELF- Do not go to this florist. Completely unprofessional and everything I was promised for my wedding day, I did not get. I don't ever write reviews but people must know about this place. I received my mock bouquet, I asked that she hydrate the flowers better for my wedding so they were open and not brown. I also asked that she took some of the bottom flowers and pulled them out a little more so they were visable. When I received my flowers I knew right away that they wrong. I called them telling them, they must have given me the wrong flowers! They were supposed to be wrapped in burlap. They were wrapped in pink! I wanted pale colors as well as greens and greys. She gave me VERY pale colors, barely any green, and RED berries. This did not look like my mock at all. I called them and they showed up to change the burlap and I noticed my guys didn't have their flowers yet. They were TWO hours late to drop the groomsmens flowers off and to drop off the centerpieces. When I called her Monday morning to go over my contract and to figure out how this happened, Julie was very rude. She insisted the red berries were peach(they weren't) and she insisted I told her I didn't like my mock. She also INSISTED her girl was on time and was there at 2:15. I have a time stamped call at 2:30 when they were still at the shop. So she did nothing but try to cover it up and lie. I was also supposed to get mason jars to line two of my tables. I got the regular cheap vases. After our conversation, Julie still hasn't said sorry and she still hasn't given me a credit. My dad's flower was embarrassing!!! She emailed me and said she was working on it. It's been 5 weeks and I haven't heard a word. I honestly can not believe she still has a shop! She argued with me that they came to help but I would't take the time to talk to them. FYI- it was my wedding day and ONE hour until my wedding was starting. I paid them to worry about the flowers. I didn't have time t

My experience with Catherine's Gardens was great but left me bit disappointed on my wedding day. They were so helpful during my consultation, offered me a mock bouquet and were very accommodating. They checked in with me on several occasions to ensure that we were on the same page. They also offered a discount for putting down a larger deposit.
On the day of the wedding my bridesmaids bouquets were half the size of the mock bouquet I had received. There were several flowers missing and much smaller quantities than we had discussed. Also, the groom and groomsmen flowers were delivered to the church and just left on the front pew without letting my husband know that they were there or pinning them on the guys as we had discussed in our consultation.
Overall, they were easy to work with but I was a bit disappointed by my bridesmaid bouquets and the way the flowers were just left at church.

They were definitely the most affordable. You also get a discount if you pay in cash and all of the down payment. Loved the bouquets she put together and the flowers for the pews. Only negative thing was that I had to always wait some time to get a reply back from emails.

Was stressing out big time over flowers. What would and wouldn't compliment everything but after sitting down with Julie I was so at ease. She has incredible taste and eye for what goes. My flowers on the day turned out better then I could have imagined and the centerpiece were flawless. I'm so glad I booked with CG. Thank you!

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.

UPDATE: Our consultation went amazingly well all the times we met with Julie, we really thought she knew exactly what we wanted and loved the attention she gave us and our children. Unfortunately, on the day of our wedding, our flowers were over an hour and half late, incorrect, and wilting. The arrangements at the reception were not at all what we imagined as far as flowers on the bottom with our vases being placed in square vases with water on in them-this was not as we discussed. They were sparse and sloppy. Worst of all, my mother’s wristlet was incorrect, as we ordered an orchid and received two calla lilies which were to be for the groom, his father and our children only in honor ofmy husband's mother’s passing. Several of my bridesmaids bouquets fell apart after the church during photos, my mini bouquet “toss bouquet” was no were near my bouquet and my bouquet was browning.

I absolutely loved my wedding flowers! They were exactly what I pictured. I loved that they provided a mock bouquet, it was really helpful in getting the exact look I wanted by being able to make changes. On our wedding day, I was wow'd when I saw the bouquets; the colors were so vibrant and the flowers themselves looked so fresh, and they were! All of the bouquets, mine included, still looked fresh even two days after our wedding!
I also want to mention how affordable the whole thing was. I thought buying wedding bouquets would be a fortune, but it ended up being so mush cheaper than I thought!
Thank you again Julie!

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!

You get what you pay for. Julie is able to offer such cheap prices because she performs a bait and switch. She promises that you will get everything that you request, but then she changes it out at the last minute. She was very personable and friendly. I actually think her issue might be the quality of staff she has hired. If you don't care about your flowers very much and just want the basics, or don't care that they are sloppy- she is your florist! I paid upfront and in cash (I should have known better) after reading reviews on here and being referred by two friends who were also using her for their upcoming weddings. I received about 50% of what I asked for, and the other 50% was substituted out. My flowers didn't match or compliment the bridesmaids dresses at all and instead of a low bowl vase for my centerpieces I was given stock vases that come with a dozen roses from Jewel. My actual bouquet was ok, but not really what I requested. It was definitely disappointing, but it was so cheap I could really only blame myself. At the end of the day I wish I had spent my money elsewhere. If you think the deal she is giving you is too good to be true, it is.
