Thank you Escapes Flowers Inc. for being part of our wedding.
I am a budget friendly bride who was looking for a florist that
could meet my needs. I had several over the top quotes from
different floral companies but I was very lucky to find Escapes
Flowers. All the things I envisioned my wedding to be was
captured. The most wonderful thing about Escapes Flowers is
that they are willing to do anything to make their clients happy.
The flowers were beautiful especially my bouquet and the bridal
party. Mrs. Cara is very resourceful, understanding, and a
wonderful person. Thank you for going above and beyond to
make our day special.

The flowers were nothing like the pictures we had discussed them being like. They were so tiny. My bouquet was only supposed to be 2 kinds of flowers. Not until 2 hours before the wedding did I find out my bouquet only had 1 kind of flower. When I tried to call the day of the wedding she would not answer. The flowers looked sad and tiny. VERY DISAPPOINTED! When I finally got a hold of her a couple days later & asked what happened she said it looked weird & made an executive decision. I would've liked to have been part of that decision. Seeing as how it was MY wedding!!! She said she would refund the difference for the flowers but never sent the check.
On the other hand she was great to work with before the wedding and was really helpful trying to figure out what I could afford & what would look good. I made it especially hard for her because all correspondence was over email since I live in another state. She was very nice & professional.

The flowers provided by Cara from Escapes Flowers were gorgeous, exactly as I had envisioned them! Cara was so easy to work with. She took all of our ideas and even gave us suggestions for how we could cut costs to still have what we wanted, but stay within our budget. The church was decorated beautifully, as was the reception hall. She was on time to deliver our flowers for pre-wedding pictures, and she stayed at the church throughout the ceremony to clean up the pew decorations, and to transport everything to the reception venue. We got everything we asked for with great quality for a price well within our budget. She made picking and ordering flowers one of the easiest tasks in the stress of wedding planning!
