We are so thrilled we chose Cool, Green & Shady as our florist!

Amber and her team complimented our venue perfectly. They created the exact mix of rustic, elegance and bringing the outdoors in that we had hoped for! I am especially happy with the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages. They were stunning - the roses even matched the exact pink of the bridesmaids dresses! The second I stepped off the elevator to the lobby of the venue and saw the flower arrangements on the seating chart and welcome table, I knew the dining room was going to look spectacular!

Cool, Green & Shady even added an extra touch of birch slabs and candles to our surprise. The team went above and beyond and truly brought the whole look of our wedding together. The Cool, Green & Shady team are extremely talented and we are so happy we chose them to be our florist for such an important day.

Amber of Cool, Green & Shady was my florist for our June 2016 wedding and I can’t possibly recommend her highly enough. Her work is absolutely stunning; when I walked into our venue, I was totally blown away. I could not have imagined it looking any more beautiful, and it was so much more than I was expecting. I had a very specific idea of how I wanted our flowers to look so I was nervous to see how they would turn out, but Amber did a sample for us, and then on the actual day of, it was as if Amber took the exact images I had in my head and made them a reality.

Not only is Amber obviously very talented, but she’s an honestly an absolute pleasure to work with. Super approachable and easy going. She met with my planner (Karina Lemke) and I extensively to talk about what I had in mind; helped me set expectations; was very transparent with her pricing, which is very reasonable relative to other florists in the city; and she respected and worked within my budget.

And then, she blew my expectations out of the water! I’m just thrilled with how everything came together.

I would recommend Amber and her team at Cool, Green & Shady in a heartbeat!

Working with Amber was a pleasure. I knew she would do a great job because my sister also used her for her wedding and it was beautiful.

I had a big task for Amber and her amazing team, they had to decorate an arbour full of flowers, create my bouquets, and my centre pieces all in about 3 hours! To say they blew my expectations out of the water is an understatement everything was beyond my expectations. The arbour was out of this world beautiful, my bouquets were perfect and the tent took my breath away.

Planning a wedding is stressful but hiring Cool Green & Shady is the best decision you can make! Trust me! Just meet with Amber and you will be hooked!

We recently got married and used Cool Green and Shady for all of our flowers. We were thrilled not only with the final product, but the whole experience! From our first meeting, Amber gave great suggestions, help ensure we stayed within budget and helped piece together a vision from my numerous Pinterest “clippings”. She also made it fun! My fiancée even enjoyed himself and thought the experience was way more enjoyable than he had expected from traditional wedding vendors. The flowers turned out incredibly and really made the wedding space our own. We are so happy that we had Amber and the team at CGS help to make our day so beautiful and perfect!

We had Cool Green & Shady provide the flowers for our recent (July 2015) wedding at Canoe Restaurant. Amber was an absolute delight to work with thanks to her cheerful personality and knowledge of flowers, and she was extremely organized and professional throughout the process. Her familiarity with the venue helped us make informed choices, not only for the flowers but also the size and colour of the vases to complement both the decor of the restaurant and the wedding itself. Her floral creations were beautiful and vibrant, eliciting MANY positive comments from our guests, and they suited the event perfectly. Her timely delivery of the flowers and corsages, as well as her flexibility in transporting flowers from the wedding venue to our brunch location (at Cluny Bistro) was especially appreciated. Everything was top-notch quality, and we would recommend CG&S without hesitation!

I booked Cool, Green and Shady for my wedding in Toronto. I met with 5 or 6 other florists before but felt like I was getting the best value from CG&S and as well really liked Amber (the owner) and how she really understood my vision.

The flowers/decor for my wedding were absolutely stunning all thanks to the hard work of the CG&S team. Amber understood my vision for my flowers and decor and was able to make it work within the budget I provided.

The CG&S team is very flexible. I was told that if on the Wednesday before my wedding there was a chance of rain, I could add on additional items for an indoor ceremony. I was very impressed that I didn't have to book and pay for this but it was an option had it rained. Amber also prepared a mock centerpiece for me about a month before my wedding so I could see what it would look like prior.

The day of my wedding, the CG&S team was amazing. They set up everything in the ballroom and delivered the bouquets/bouts earlier in the day. They then returned to set up the ceremony flowers and again to flip the ceremony flowers to the ballroom. They are very professional and did not need any direction from me. They returned the day after the wedding to pick up all the rentals.

I would highly recommend CG&S for wedding florals. They are extremely talented and amazing to work with!

When I was planning our wedding, I contacted dozens of florists in Toronto and got really discouraged. No matter how much I tried to emphasize that I was only having a small non-traditional wedding on a limited budget and I only required a bridal bouquet and some small centrepieces, I kept getting so many ridiculously expensive quotes! For many florists, they couldn't even be bothered to work with me on my budget. Thankfully, I had heard that Cool Green & Shady was willing to work with brides on any budget, and I am so glad I contacted them! From the very start, Amber was incredibly helpful and accommodating, and she was more than willing to work with me to achieve the look I wanted for my wedding. By far and away, her quote were the most reasonable I received. Even more importantly, the quality of her work was outstanding! Her bouquet and centrepieces came out exactly as I had envisioned from by Pinterest inspiration pictures! In addition, she made the wedding planning process and the day-of execution a snap - from the outset she was a joy to work with and was incredibly responsive to emails and providing all the information I needed right away, and on the day of the wedding, everything was delivered and setup right on time! She even took the extra time to personally show me the flowers and make sure they were exactly what I wanted! I cannot recommend her enough to any bride who is looking for excellent, high quality, and beautiful floral design at a reasonable price! Thanks so much!

Amber and the team at Cool Green & Shady created the most stunning, high-quality arrangements and bouquets for our wedding. She immediately understood my vision and was able to work within my budget. Of all the florists that I met with while planning, I had the most confidence in Amber's abilities and professionalism, and I was completely blown away by the final product CG&S created. Our guests were raving about the centrepieces, especially the beautiful peonies that were used. I would highly recommend Cool Green & Shady! Thank you Amber and team :)

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!
