Amber and team did a fantastic job with my flowers. They were able to suggest what flowers were in season and within my budget without any issue, and had fantastic ideas. We made some last minute substitutions due to an early frost and it turned out even prettier than I could have imagined!
Excellent service and quality all around! Highly recommended!

How could I give Amber and her team anything less than 5/5? To say that they exceeded our expectations would be an understatement.

I will forever, wholeheartedly recommend Cool, Green & Shady to anyone seeking a florist. After meeting with several different florists about our wedding flowers I was starting to wonder if my vision (which seemed relatively simple) was not only out of our budget but also impossible to achieve.
Within the first few minutes of meeting Amber and with only ONE inspiration picture of a bouquet (that later became the inspiration for the whole wedding), she had a plan. Not only was she able to describe back to me exactly what I had been picturing but her costs were very reasonable. We paid the deposit right there on the spot, despite the fact that we still had almost 2 years to our wedding date.

Fast forward two years and I decided to add a huge hanging floral installation over the head table a month before the wedding. Amber and her colleagues were equally as excited about the final look of the piece and did everything they could to make it happen, despite the fact that it was a complete last minute addition. This included Amber herself, at almost 10 months pregnant up the ladder hanging flowers on the day of (for which we will be forever grateful). I believe some pictures of our flowers can be seen on their blog at http://www.coolgreenandshady.com/oh-how-i-love-you/

I really don’t know how anyone could ever be disappointed with the overall experience Cool, Green & Shady has to offer. Not only are they professional with competitive rates but they deliver superior quality work while really taking the time to get to know and interact with their clients.

We met with a number of Toronto-area vendors, but from our first meeting Amber stood out and we are so happy we went with her! She was lovely to work with from start to finish, offering us smart suggestions that worked with our budget and really helping to bring our overall vision and colour palette to life. We could not have been happier with the stunning bouquets, centrepieces and other floral decor that Amber created for us. The end result was just perfect. Would not hesitate to highly recommend Amber/Cool Green and Shady to any other couple. :)

We loved the flowers for our wedding! We were so pleased with Amber's work. She was friendly and professional. I appreciated the way she captured exactly what I was looking for, despite my vague descriptions (e.g., "a vintagey bouquet"). The computer system she uses was so helpful - she could show us pictures of all of the flowers she was thinking of to help us visualize things. She had many different styles of vases that we could rent - she was able to put together exactly the look I wanted for the centrepieces. She was very responsive to all communication from us, and was flexible in response to some changes we requested shortly before the wedding related to our back-up rain plan.

Amber was amazingly helpful. She went above and beyond and helped us design beautiful centrepieces and floral touches that really suited us and our venue. Our guests loved our flowers and we loved the vibrancy that Amber and her team brought to our day. We would certainly recommend Amber and Cool Green & Shady to any couple.

Amber was so pleasant and professional and we consider ourselves lucky to have had her as our florist for our wedding! She was extremely organized, made any changes we requested and gave us plenty of suggestions based on what we were looking for. Amber also went above and beyond what was required, adding extra flowers to ensure that our escort card holders stood out. Our guests absolutely loved the flowers, and even inquired about our florist. We were happy to provide them with details! :)

We would definitely recommend Amber for not only weddings but any other occasion, small or large, you may have!

The best think I can say about this florist is that they work as closely within your budget as possible and come up with beautiful results. I wanted something really specific for my wedding and they achieved it perfectly.

Amber is AMAZING!!! Our florals were absolutely stunning and everyone kept asking us who our florist was!! She went above and beyond and when my decor company produced the worst mock-ups for a centerpiece.... I turned to Amber for help. She created the most STUNNING centerpieces I could have ever imagined!!

The day after our wedding we were walking around the hotel which was our venue and noticed that they had re-used all of our centerpiece and headtable florals as decor for their lobby!!! THAT is how gorgeous the arrangements were..... the upscale hotel decided to use them as their decor the day after!! :)

Amber did such an incredible job on my wedding flowers. They absolutely exceeded my expectations wowed my guests. I am still receiving compliments! We met a couple of times leading up to the wedding and each time I would list off a million more things I liked. Amber was able to narrow down my vision and come up with the most beautiful bouquets and centerpieces to bring my wedding to life.

Amber was by far my best vendor. She made me the most beautiful bouquet with mini versions for my bridesmaids and gorgeous flowers for the church. The arrangements were original and cool. Not your typical rose bouquet deal. She responded promptly to my messages and was very organized. A truly prolific florist!
