Thank you for making our daughter's wedding so beautiful.

Darenda is a true master of her art and truly loves what she does; it is apparent through her work and customer service. As an educator, it was tough for me to plan my wedding without a planner, so I started early and did all the “hard” work during the summers. Thats when I meet Darenda, in the Summer of 2013. I had interviewed several florist (and through my profession I had ordered many flowers through wholesalers) and upon walking into her shop I knew she was the one I had to work with. Darenda made the process easy from the beginning and always listened to all my stressful situations about the wedding; even when it had nothing to do with the flowers! The easiest part of my wedding was booking Darenda! I told her my vision and budget; we emailed back and forth (she replies right away!), called a few times and made my vision a dream come true. May I add that all I showed her was a picture of what I wanted my bouquet to look like—she made it look even better!!! As of yesterday (9/9/14), it has been a month since I said “I do” to my husband and my bridesmaids flowers are still alive!!!! My bouquet is still talked about-it was a beautiful bouquet filled with blue roses, white and blue hydrangeas and few others. I loved every aspect of my flowers at our wedding, it was done to perfection and it was beyond a pleasure to have worked with her. I always told my friends and family that I wished all vendors were as sweet, professional, detail-orientated, passionate, and understanding as Darenda. Her work of art made my day beautiful- words can never express our gratitude. From now on, Darenda is our preferred vendor for any occasion, we know that she will execute our dream no matter how small or big. Words can not express how thrilled, thankful, and blessed we felt after every correspondence we had with her, because we knew she had it all under control. If you haven’t done it already, head to Homestead and meet her, she’s a gem!

I planned my wedding in Key Largo Florida from Nashville TN so I had no idea what to expect from vendors. The resort that held my wedding had Darenda on their preferred vendors list. Working with Darenda was such a pleasure, she has so much experience and flower knowledge! I had a very specific vision for my flowers as far as colors and vintage style, as well as bouquet charms and vintage keys that I wanted in boutonnière's that I sent to her a month prior. She was happy to accommodate these requests for me and made the process so simple! I would recommend Darenda and her crew 100%! I have never seen such beautiful perfect flowers and she helped to make my day so special!

My wedding was a small event at Cheeca Lodge & Spa in Islamorada. Being so far away it wasn't easy trying to find certain vendors...and Florists were the hardest for me. But when I finally found Designs by Darenda...I knew immediately I had found the right one...no doubt Darenda was my choice! She was very responsive since most of our communications had to be through email. She listened to my ideas and wish list items, she asked questions, sent me pictures...she could see the vision I had. I was so happy with the way everything turned out. The flowers were gorgeous...everything I could have imagined and more! I definitely recommend Darenda for any floral needs! She really was fabulous to work with! :)

My wedding flowers were breathtaking!!! Designs by Darenda did an amazing job!!! They were so nice each time I spoke with them on the phone and granted all of my requests. My only regret was having to leave the flowers behind because we could not fly them home on the plane.

Darenda is as professional as it can get! And if that weren't enough, she is an absolute DOLL!!!!!!! She sincerely cares about her clients and will go above and beyond to make your day her top priority. She is knowledgeable, creative, and sooooo easy to work with.

She is so sweet and very price conscious. She will help you get what you want at a price that is realistically what you can afford. There are not enough words to express how fabulous she is. A true perfectionist at work and a lovely person, Darenda is the only way to go!!!!!

We have used Darenda now for both our daughters wedding. Once in 2005 and now in 2014. Darenda is by far the most creative florist I have ever seen. Her arrangements are simply breathtaking. She is a pure joy to work with and always has a beautiful smile on her face. Of all the vendors, we hired for the wedding, I had complete confidence in Darenda and never had to worry that she would not meet our expectations. No bride would ever go wrong using Darenda for their florist. On a scale of 1 to 10, she is a 15+++++ in my book.

Darenda is an AMAZING florist!!! My flowers were: hot pink, light pink, and white garden roses, peonies, and roses! The flowers were perfect!

Darenda did the flowers for my wedding. Prior to the wedding she was great about helping us plan and organize the arrangement we wanted. She gave us a ton of options, and was very good at tailoring what we wanted to our style. Darenda was always available to talk on the phone or answer emails. We would highly recommend her to anyone getting married in South Florida

I have been a customer of hers for years and it was great to have her make the flowers sent to me by finace for Valentine's Day and my Birthday only to lead up to our big day! She was always available and made many sugesstions to help you get the most for your money without sacrificing your vision. The flowers were beautiful and I look forward to continuing to receive flowers made by her for many years to come.

We could not have asked for more from Darenda...I knew the moment I met her I did not have to go search for a florist anywhere else! Her level of organization, attention and care for each client really puts your mind at ease. The flowers were amazing and more than beautiful--- every single guests loved the arrangements. My mother in law who retired as a florist was beyond happy and amazed by the flowers and arrangements. The personal flowers were great from my bouquet, bridal, to the bridesmaids...I have been to wedding where the bridesmaids bouquet are really lacking BUT not at my wedding they were truly amazing. This was the best experience I had with a vendor---from the attention, to the flexibility, timely delivery and setup etc etc we are all more than happy and look forward to working with Darenda again and again and again.

Darenda was easy to contact, and eased me into the process of choosing flowers for my wedding. I came into it not knowing at all what I wanted, but by the end of the first meeting, I had not only learned everything that I needed for the wedding (without feeling overwhelmed but rather excited!), but also had made almost all the preliminary decisions necessary to put me at ease.
Throughout the wedding-planning process, even with many changes (including a date change), Darenda bent over backwards, accommodating everything and giving helpful insight to help us pull everything together with our other vendors. We changed so many things, but she was on top of everything and thought of all the details so I didn't have to. She is also a really sweet person to work with, and helped me achieve a completely low-stress wedding day!
While she was planning for my wedding, I saw one of her floral designs for my neighbor's baby shower. They just gave her a napkin and told her the theme was safari, and she absolutely nailed it not only with color palette, but theme and exact size dimensions for the table. I was absolutely impressed. It was perfect.
I will use her for every floral need I could ever have. She's easy to work with, knows flowers and design inside and out, and is reasonable. Amazing. If you book her for your event, put your mind at ease and be prepared for beautiful perfection!

I recently had Darenda do the flowers for my daughter's bridal shower that was held in the beautiful Cheeca Lodge Resort in Islamorada, Florida. The venue is extremely beautiful and needed someone with incredible talent to design arrangements that would not be lost or diminished in such an environment. I had to communicate long distance from Colorado with e mails and phone conversations and submitting photos of ideas I had. She immediately knew the vision I had for the flowers and assured me it would be taken care of. When we arrived at the venue and walked into the room it was absolutely everything I could have imagined it to be!! She delivered it and set it up personally, not leaving it to the resort staff to take care of. This personal touch and attention to detail is very hard to come by this day and age and her skill and talent in the industry are unsurpassed.....what a pleasure it was to work with her!

I recently had a destination wedding in Key Largo, Florida. Planning from Philadelphia was very difficult, as we were only able to take 1 trip down there prior to the big day to meet with our vendors in person. One of the biggest challenges that I faced for many months was finding a florist. I must have submitted about 10 requests to different vendors in the Keys, some didn’t end up replying, many exceeded my budget, and to others I was just another wedding and there was a lack of the personal touch. Finally I was introduced to Designs by Darenda in Homestead, FL. I knew from the beginning that flowers were incredibly important to me – the colors had to be bright, there needed to be variety, and it had to come off as “fun but elegant”. When I first spoke to Darenda, she took an hour and a half with me to understand what I had envisioned, what the bridal party comprised of, and my budget. And that was only the first time we chatted! She was always open to brainstorming new ideas or changing things around if needed. I am no flower expert, I just simply love them, so I heavily relied on her to give me suggestions that fit the vibe of our wedding and our own personalities. She picked vibrant colors of hot pinks and corals consisting of garden roses, roses, hydrangeas, gerberas, and more. They turned out so beautiful and completely exceeded my expectations - which were high to begin with. I was beyond happy with Darenda’s work. She is an extremely kind person, incredible to work with, and has an outstanding gift as a florist. I would recommend her to anyone that is having a wedding or any event where flowers will be important to you.

Darenda is AMAZING!
She was our florist for our wedding on 5/9/13 in Islamorada, FL, and I couldn't be more grateful for her talents, attention to detail, enthusiasm, professionalism, courteousness, excellent communication, creativity, and overall result of our floral arrangements on our wedding day!
I chose Darenda after interviewing several florists. I was on a very tight budget, but wanted that "wow" factor that every bride hopes for.
Not only did Darenda deliver on the most beautiful and impressive floral arrangements that exceeded my expectations tenfold, she actually seemed excited by the challenge of working to give us the most bang for our buck (when do you find a wedding vendor that actually likes working within a tight budget?).
Working remotely via email and phone calls from California, I gave Darenda broad direction with a few photos, a color palette, and a small list of preferred flowers. I told Darenda to let her creativity and talent do the rest. It was the best decision I could have made! From my bridal bouquet, Maid of Honor bouquet, boutonnieres, table arrangements and corsages, the flowers were stunning! And, despite the Florida heat, the flowers remained perfect, even days later! Darenda even added extra touches that I hadn't asked for. She brought my bouquet to the hotel where I was getting ready, and expertly set up the florals and cake flowers at the event site right on time.
Darenda helped make our wedding day spectacularly special, and I am so grateful to have found her.

I recently had a destination wedding in Islamorada, FL and was planning everything from Los Angeles. After multiple awful phone calls & emails from a different florist, we parted ways and I looked for a new florist.. and voila ~ Designs by Darenda!! From the very first conversation, I knew that I was SOOO lucky to have found her!!! She is the utmost professional, from timely responsiveness both via phone and email, to her dedication and care in making sure I did not have to worry about a thing! After the first conversation, and briefly describing the atmosphere and event design we were looking to achieve, she sent me an email with pictures of the flowers she was thinking would reflect what I had described. EVERY single picture was exactly what I wanted!!

Darenda did not waste my time, she was concise with the information she needed from me and really 'gets' what her customers are looking for. She was so very sweet, showed up on time, made everything look stunning - to which I didn't have to worry about a thing (and I am very detail oriented and a bit anal retentive). My bouquet smelled and looked amazing!!! Literally every arrangement was perfect & looked like it had come straight from a wedding magazine - but on a slim budget she had to work with!!! The ONLY thing I would have changed is having to leave the next day four our honeymoon and not being able to take all the flowers with me out of the country!!!

Every one of our guests commented on how beautiful the flowers looked, and I couldn't help but beam throughout the day loving all of my flowers and appreciating Darenda's hard work, and meticulous attention to detail!!!! If you are looking for a florist for ANY EVENT you should pick Designs by Darenda! I couldn't be happier with everything and all of her hard work. She made my wedding day absolutely perfect!!

I cannot say enough great things about Darenda. I had called a few florists near my wedding venue and was totally appalled by the quality of service which included the slow responses, people not willing to work with my budget, and flat out telling me I couldn't get a vision I'd hope for without spending xxx amount more than I planned. They didn't suggest ways to give me the look or feel I'd hoped for by offering cheaper options, they just shut me down.
When I called Darenda, I told her my budget, I told her what I had hoped for, and because of her extensive knowledge of florals, and what she knows she can create, she was able to get me what I wanted and all within my budget. She was one of the kindest people I spoke to in the entire time I was planning, and I have since recommended her to every single person I have come across looking for a florist.

Darenda was recommended to me by a good friend of mine, and I'm sure glad I took my friends recommendation. First let me start off by saying the flowers and arrangements provided by Darenda were BEAUTIFUL, and EXACTLY what we wanted for our "Gerbera Daisy" Wedding. The flowers were BIG and BRIGHT... and a week later... the flowers from my wedding we took home are still alive in my house. Darenda gave us what we wanted, and worked within our budget! DON'T let her location in Homestead stop you either, as my wedding was on South Beach, and Darenda had NO PROBLEMS arriving on time and having everything set up well before the wedding was to begin. She was punctual and professional. I highly recommend Darenda for any of your flower needs!

I can't say enough great things about Darenda!! I knew nothing about flowers and was happy to have someone guide me through the process of picking out a bouquet for my wedding! Darenda listened to what I had planned, and was able to create a wonderful bouquet - I had many compliments on it! She was even able to change some of the flowers after I went to her three days before the wedding since the color of my wedding dress was slightly different than I expected.

Darenda is a true artist. She constructed the most beautiful array of vintage inspired flowers for my beach wedding. I wanted to make my own vintage vases for the wedding, and she allowed me to make and ship them to her before the wedding. She is the friendliest person you will ever meet and is very knowledgeable. I loved my flowers so much that I just couldn't part with them, so I emailed her at 3am the morning before I left for my honeymoon, and within 2 hours I had an email back from her recommending a woman in Miami that could preserve my bouquet for me. I could go on and on...we love you Darenda! Thank you!!!

Darenda was amazing! I felt like in the end we gained a friend. The flowers were gorgeous and exactly what I dreamed they would be. Our friend who caught the bouquets had them intact after a week and the arrangements I brought home lasted a little longer. I am so glad I had Darendas help and advice. They have gained a life long customer!

Darenda made us feel so at ease when we were unprepared and stressed out. She guided us in our choices with her professionalism while providing exactly what we had envisioned. She was on time, communicated and provided a fair price.

At the beginning of all my wedding planning the first vendor my husband and i started looking for was a florist. We finally found Darenda through a friends recommendation and we found our official florist! My husband and I were clueless at the time and were trying to stay within a budget, Darenda was able to accommodate all of our needs and we even had a last few changes weeks before the wedding and she was able to adjust whatever she had to. The day of the wedding i couldn't have been happier with all of the flowers! She even went out of her way and put some extra flowers in places that just stood out and looked beyond perfect. Two weeks after our wedding some of our flowers are still alive and fresh!

The flowers that Darenda designed and arranged for our wedding were hands down the prettiest and most artful I have ever seen. When I called her with an approximate idea of what I wanted she was great about giving me suggestions, emailing me pictures of options, and using her experience to guide me to the right choices. She was more detail oriented than I could have imagined. Going as far as having me email her a picture of my husbands tie so she could color match the ribbon that she used to wrap the stems. Everything was fantastic, we were very pleased. I loved our flowers so much that I shipped them to a company that dries them and makes them into beads for jewelry.
