Maria & Larry were a pleasure to work with and did an amazing job with the flowers for our wedding, including the bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages & centerpieces. When I first met with Larry, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted and he helped to guide my ideas with great recommendations. When we went to see a sample of our centerpieces several months later (which were perfect!), I had changed my vision for the bouquets and boutonnieres, including specific flowers and color schemes. Larry & Maria were extremely helpful and patient with helping me design exactly what I pictured and all of the flowers turned out beautiful.

Never once did I have a doubts. the ideas we talk about during our meeting matched perfected the day of the wedding, and was even more beautiful then I could ever imagine . They also decorated my cake and it absolutely breath taking. Thank you both for making my night so amazing.

Right from the start - working with Larry and Maria was such a pleasure. My daughter and her husband had a vision of what they wanted but were also conscious of staying within their budget. Larry went above and beyond to work with them. The ceremony and reception was at Seasons and they created such a beautiful atmosphere. Both Larry and Maria were their to set up the ceremony and afterwards to set up each centerpiece on the tables. People are still talking about how gorgeous the flowers were. Many thanks to them for their professionalism as well as flexibility and incredible talent!!!

Words cannot express how wonder Maria & Larry are. Their time, understanding and of course patience are truly remarkable and above all their
flower design and arrangements are absolutely beautiful.
We had our Oct wedding this weekend at the Grove and not only were the centerpieces, arch and bouquets just what the bride wanted (and as we know the brides are expecting everything to be amazing) rightfully so and it certainly was. The cake was also decorated PICTURE PERFECT.
Again Larry you are wonderful to work with and Maria you are a SAINT !
Thank You for making so may people happy with your special talents!!!!

I was recommended to Maria and Larry by 3 people so I was pretty sold on them when I walked in. Warm and friendly, I felt right at home. We sat down and talked about our green and brown color scheme and the decor we wanted. Centerpiece design was up in the air but luckily Maria had tons of ideas. For bouquets, etc., Maria was amazing at customizing the look for us and finding the perfect color of flowers. She was so flexible to work with. I liked everything right off the bat. We met again for a trial and the centerpiece I described wasn't what I wanted anymore. I was so decisive on everything for the wedding but the centerpieces were just not clear for me yet. Maria personally went back and forth with me on emails and i sent her so many pictures it would make your head spin but she looked at all of them and helped guide me in the right direction. Patience of a saint! I was finally inspired at a client's wedding and knew that I wanted to use wine boxes with flowers in them. After fixing them up, I delivered one to Maria and her mockup was just stunning. She was again flexible with how it would/could look with or without this or that. So many choices! We figured it out together and I delivered 20+ wine boxes to her house, filled with paper shredding as a base. I mean what an undertaking and she and Larry were amazing! EVERYONE at the wedding commented on our centerpieces and as gorgeous as they were, I couldn't stop looking at my gorgeous orchid and hydrangea bouquet of light green. Maria and Larry make you feel like family; they are honest, creative, fair and flexible with a designer's eye. They make it happen and I'm so glad that they were a part of our wedding day!

Larry was wonderful at our two meetings, listening to everything we wanted and making suggestions. You could just tell he knew his stuff! Everything went smoothly in the planning and on the day of the wedding, we had some doubts about whether we would have our ceremony outside because of the rain but Larry was very patient with us in waiting til the last minute to set up. Everything turned out beautifully! I was so happy with my bouquet that I decide to preserve it even though that wasn't my original plan-I just fell in love with it! Everything was exactly what I wanted =)

Floral Expressions by Maria & Larry was the florist for our beautiful wedding at The View on June 30, 2013. I worked with Larry, who was most professional, warm, and accommodating. He thoughtfully discussed and designed our bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres, and wrist corsages so that they matched our color palette and budget. The day of the wedding, he arrived early to deliver all of our flowers and presented me with my bouquet in the bridal suite. We had flowers in our wedding color placed on the wedding cake, and many guests complemented us on how gorgeous the cake looked.

I have to say, as I've told Maria and Larry before, I enjoyed working with this vendor the most out of all my wedding vendors. Maria has patience of a Saint. I completely changed my flowers -- all my flowers -- three times. Not one huff, not one sigh, only encouragement. Maria wanted me to be happy. I gave poor Maria a very difficult order -- I wanted Lily of the Valley and Lilacs for my wedding the end of May. They are hard to come by as they are just out of season by then but Maria pulled it off. There were some flowers which I just could not get, but Maria knew what looked like the flowers I wanted and made my dream bouquet a reality. Honestly, the church altar flowers were so absolutely incredible -- they were breathtaking. They were so nice that Father kept them the next day for the First Communion children. Also very important was Maria kept in my budget. If something was changed, even at the last minute, Maria made it happen within the limitations I set for her. I wanted aqua sparkly tea lights all over the room. I pride myself as a Google search person, but I couldn't find them... and believe me, I tried. Maria found them for me and at a price lower than we expected. I'm not sure how many vendors would have done this, but Maria lowered the price of the bill on the flowers. What an honest person! I really appreciated having someone work for me that I trusted. Thank you so much Maria and Larry!

Maria and Larry did a phenomenal job with our wedding! Friendly, experienced, creative, and attentive - they exceeded our expectations. They were suggested by our venue, The Colonial Inn, and we are very happy that we used their service.

Once we met Maria, it was pretty clear how experienced she was. The final result was proof that she was able to build off of our vague ideas and was able to execute a beautiful floral arrangement for our ceremony. Whatever remaining ideas that we may have lacked, Maria was able to fill in those gaps beyond our expectation.

The boutonnieres and bouquets arrived at our hotel fresh and beautiful. Members of our wedding party, who were recently married themselves, even noted how great and high quality everything looked.

If you have a wedding coming up, I strongly suggest that you visit Maria and Larry during your vendor search.

Floral Expressions by Maria & Larry were recommended to us by a close friend of the family. We are thrilled that they saw our vision and made it a reality. We had a baseball themed wedding, but wanted to keep it elegant and classy at the same time. Maria was extremely creative and thought outside the box. Our centerpieces were full, fresh and vibrant along with my bouquet. The colors and flowers she recommended were perfect, just as I imagined it! They took the time and spent hours with us, and they were on time for delivery and set up. The flowers were so fantastic that not one centerpiece, floral arrangement or bouquet (yes I actually gave my bouquet away) left at the end of the day! I would highly recommend them to any couple planning their big day!

As a wedding planner I would highly recommend them if you want you’re wedding to be just perfect. They not only work with your budget but they do an amazing job and go above and beyond your expectations. Love you Maria & Larry! I absolutely loved all my flowers! Thank you guys.

We had a beautiful wedding on 10/26/12 and Larry was so incredibly patient and helpful throughout our planning process. Larry met with us multiple times because I made a few changes along the way to the flowers and each time we met, he gave us his opinions and it really was a team effort. The day of our wedding, Maria and Larry were there early, and everyone commented on how beautiful and amazing the arch was...it was truly a sight to see! My bouquet was exquisite and my bridesmaids' bouquets were also stunning. Our centerpieces were rustic and wrapped in birch bark, and the guests loved their uniqueness. Larry and Maria always got back to me quickly, were always friendly and helpful, and and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone I know. Thank you Larry and Maria for a wonderful job!!

From the very first meeting with Larry to the wedding day, he and Maria were knowledgeable, responsive and efficient. We had an extensive first meeting but left with all the information we needed to make a decision. During the planning time, Larry set up 2 centerpiece choices to help us decide. He listened carefully to what my daughter, the bride, wanted for colors and the overall look and feel for the ceremony and reception. They always listened and suggested. On the wedding day, Larry was at the Woodcliff Manor(Great place) very early and was in on the conference as to whether or not we could have the ceremony outside. He was always willing to be flexible and accommodating. He put all his talent and energy into building a beautiful arbor for the ceremony, the bouquets were perfect (as discussed and planned) and the centerpieces were a perfect compliment to the table setting. We received so many compliments on the flowers and the bride was especially happy about her aubergine bouquet! You will be happy with their talent, energy and service! We were!

I absolutely loved working with Maria and Larry! They took my many ideas and helped create a cohesive feeling in our wedding. The bridesmaids bouquets were gorgeous and the corsages and boutonnieres were exactly what I wanted! The ceremony decor was SPOT ON and even more beautiful than I expected, and they really listened to what we wanted for the reception and boy did they deliver! But the best part, hands down, was my bouquet! SIMPLY STUNNING! I had a vision in my head of what I wanted and Maria and Larry were able to make it a reality - but even better.

My mother and I met with Larry at the shop in his house (which is adorable) and he did an excellent job of showing us all of the different options of centerpieces, bouquets and chuppahs. Larry was friendly, professional and accommodating. On the day of the wedding, he and his assistant had everything set up perfectly and on time. The flowers were the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. I am sure every bride thinks that, but mine really were the most beautiful :) The chuppah was gorgeous and perfect for our late summer wedding and the centerpieces were absolutely beautiful. I especially liked the bridesmaids' bouquets and the groom’s orchid boutineer. Larry really paid attention to all of the small details to make everything look perfect. The flowers were on the pricey side, but I am so happy with the way they came out. Job well done.

Larry is AMAZING! I was definitely a high maintenance bride and he delivered beyond what I wanted. He even created a custom chuppa for me because my design was different than what he had ever done before. I also changed my mind a few times and he was always up for working with me and tweaking his design. Also, price is reasonable.

We have had the privilege of working with Larry for our daughter's August 2011 wedding and also Maria for one of our other daughter’s wedding in December of 2011. They both are very easy to talk to...they are welcoming-providing a very relaxed atmosphere, which is helpful at a taxing time. They listen genuinely to what you have to say and guide and greatly enhance your vision. Their experience in the business is clear in every aspect of their work. They are sensitive to your floral needs and treat your wedding with great importance. The bridal bouquets were stunning, as were the centerpieces for the receptions. Their special touch was evident at the receptions as they did tremendous jobs on the wedding cakes and other areas at the venues. They are two lovely people who happen to be very talented at what they do and it was a pleasure meeting and working with them.

Floral Expressions came highly recommended by our venue (Woodcliff Manor), and we were very happy with our experience. We worked with Larry, and when we first met him, we came in with some non-traditional concepts in mind. Larry took the time to work with us and our ideas to help us evolve and construct our concept. We ended up building a sample centerpiece right on the spot, and when we saw it, we know that's exactly what we wanted.

When the day of the wedding came, they came in and set everything up with no hassles or any involvement from us. Everything was done seamlessly and done well according to plan. I couldn't have asked for anything more! Great job!

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Maria and Larry. What a fun couple! It's inspiring to see couples who have been married for 30+ years in the wedding business. Maria is so creative and has such wonderful ideas, I felt such a connection with her the minute we met. She seemed to understand my vision better than I could! She listened to what it was I liked and didn't like. As far as pricing, we found her to be extremely reasonable. We had gone to another vendor first and they wanted to charge us $50 for a 3 rose bouquet. With 14 people in our bridal party, that was ridiculous. Maria and Larry even went as far as assembling our centerpieces that we had bought and planned on assembling on our own. Everything was beautiful and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

When planning our wedding, I was most concerned about the flowers because I looked on the internet and was completely overwhelmed by the amount of choices. We were on a budget and I heard all sorts of stories of how out of control people got with their flowers and centerpieces. Larry and Maria were perfect. Maria spent so much time with me and helped me to narrow down colors, types of flowers and the look of my centerpieces while keeping me within my budget. My wedding was in October so we did a beautiful fall theme of ivory, apricot and pumpkin orange with an accent of eggplant purple to match the bridesmaid's dresses. She created two different gorgeous centerpieces because I liked the idea of having more to look at than just the same flowers on every table. One was long vases with orchids that looked like they were suspended in air throughout the vase and the other huge mixed flower bouquets that included a few of the orchids used in the other vase. We also used candles to accent everything. She decorated our cake with flowers and Larry did a fantastic job on our chuppah. Everyone was talking about how gorgeous the room looked and the Manager of the country club was so impressed by their work that he asked me for their number. In addition, I thought I'd have to be more involved with making sure everything flowed correctly on the day of the wedding. Maria told me not to worry about it. She took the number of the Club manager and they arranged everything so I didn't have to think about it. I work full time and my mom is in Florida and my maid of honor in Chicago. I really needed a florist who I could count on to take care of everything without me having to get too involved and that's exactly what she did. With Maria and Larry you can be as involved or not involved as your time allows and you can completely count on getting 200% from them. I can't imagine them doing any better if it was a wedding for their own children. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a florist. You won't be disappointed.

The table flowerss were exactly what the bride and groomed wanted. They looked beautiful and elegant. He decorated the cakes, rooms and the hallyways with rose buds. The flikkering lights all around the mansion added a wonderful glow and an atmosphere that was elegant and inviting. Our guests commented on how beautiful the rooms looked.

We interviewed 3 other floral services for our wedding. No one compared to Larry and his patience and ability to take our thoughts and design them into reality. Unfortunatly, our wedding was scheduled on the same day that Hurricane Irene hit causing us to have to cancel our wedding. Being that this was at the last minute and the flowers were already at Larry's, he put together all the arrangements and even offered to deliver them to whereever we choose. The flowers were stunning and his professionalism was very much appreciated. We will be using them again and I highly recommend their services.

Working with Floral Expressions was truly a great experience! Larry is so knowledgable and worked with me and my partner in helping to create our unique and out-of-the box arrangements. We originally had a date for our wedding on August 27...the day Hurricane Irene hit! Unfortunately, we had to cancel the day before due to the weather :( The table arrangements had already been prepared but Larry was kind enough to work with us on refunding us what he could and fairly adjusting the bill for when our new date comes. My husband and I are looking forward to working with them again as we prepare for our new wedding date of May 19!

We could not have been any happier with everything that Larry and Maria did for us. The flowers were beautiful, vibrant, and EXACTLY what we wanted! We saw a sample center piece about 2 months prior to the wedding and it got us so excited because it was more beautiful that we could have imagined. The bouquets were spectacular and looked amazing with the dresses. Larry and Maria created a beautiful Chuppah for us and were so patient on perfecting the final details of our ceremony, as we were not sure if it would be held indoors or outdoors. Everything they did was perfect... without a doubt we will be passing their name along to family and friends!! Thank you Larry and Maria for helping to create such a beautiful wedding from start to finish!

I planned my NJ wedding from VA and TX. During an initial visit to NJ I did my meetings to pick the vendors I would use and we chose Maria & Larry for flowers. I didn't have much for specifics in my flowers. All I knew was I wanted some calla lilies for their personal meaning to me. We went through the book of flowers a little, I think so she could see how I liked the seasonal flowers she expected to see and just make sure she didn't include flowers I thought were really ugly.

Besides that I just gave her the colors I wanted in the bouquets, clothing colors so she could use a matching ribbon color to wrap the flowers, and the number of pieces we needed. She asked me about what I wanted for decorations at the venue, which was beyond me. She is familiar with many(most? all?) of the venues in the area and could tell me what was a must have and any optional things I might want. No pressure to select expensive flowers or to get "optional" arrangements.

Considering my time restraints when planning in NJ, I was very happy that I could just tell Maria the colors I wanted for the flowers and didn't have to sit there and figure out every flower. If you talk to her, she will also tell you that she likes the flexibility because she is able to pick out the best flowers available. When the shipments come in the flower you selected might not look as nice as it should. (Have you ever received an arrangement someone sent to you of "beautiful" flowers that just didn't make it during shipping or maybe it wasn't in season and was came in was just a shadow of what you know it should look like?). So I would highly suggest giving any "must have" sentimental flowers, but leaving the rest up to her. My arrangements turned out beautiful.

After the initial visit we communicated through email, which is my preference. I had no problems receiving quick responses. They are very flexible; I had to add and subtract different pieces as crazy things seemed to happen in my bridal party. Even a few days before we had to add a boutonniere. Just let them know if changes occur and they will do their best to help.

On a side note, this was technically my second wedding. We had a tiny ceremony out in TX because of our situation. I got a bouquet and told the lady what I wanted. Not only did she try to guide me to other options I didn't want, but the end result was soo far from what I had envisioned. That bouquet's flowers looked like they were not what they could have/should have been. The roses were barely open. She didn't want to dye flowers blue, so she said she would put in lots of blue ribbon loops to account for the color. (She couldn't get any blue flowers either... I got a fake calla lilly from michael's put in the arrangement though) There were barely any blue loops, and she put in green leaf loops which I had told her I did not want. I was incredible disappointed in that bouquet.

So for general wedding advice, just be careful. Not every florist, or vendor for that matter, is trustworthy. Maria and Larry are, and without a detailed list of what I wanted were able to give me everything I wanted. If you're talking to someone and you feel like you're setting for something you don't really want, take another look around and see if you can find what you really want.

Maria and Larry are a brides best friend. Everyone knows planning a wedding is extremely stressful. One thing I kept worrying about was my vendors and whether or not they would gt everything right, or more importantly even remember to show up! Maria and Larry had everythig under co trip with ease.

I would highly recommend Maria and Larry to any bride who wants to have exceptionally beautiful flowers at an extremely fair price. I met with Maria one night and she patiently answered all of my questions and provided awesome advice for over 2 hours and I hadn't even paid a deposit or booked her. She just genuinely cared about my vision for my wedding and wanted me to understand all of my options. She made my centerpieces, and even her daughter carved pumpkin luminaries for some of my centerpieces! They were absolutely stunning. My bouquet and bridesmaids' bouquets were gorgeous! She took what I had envisioned and completely "Wow'ed" me with the result. My jaw dropped at the reception when I saw the centerpieces. She does amazing work, and will work with your budget to ensure your day is as incredible (and more so!) as you imagined it!

They were very workable and wanted to make sure that everything would come out exactly how it should. They made sure to take what we wanted but also gave their suggestions to make our wedding as elegant as we hoped for. Thank you for all you did.

Larry was completely helpful in everything I wanted and needed, and some of the centerpieces (an orchid in a square vase with a floating candle) lasted for weeks after the reception! The flowers were beautiful.

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Maria and Larry are! And their service and business reflect their hard work, passion, and love for what they do. They have endless amounts of patience and will take all the time you need to sit with you, discuss what you would like, and how you imagine your special day! Their level of professionalism and dedication to making my day special was impressive. And their prices are more than fair. They will work with your budget and do whatever they can to create just what it is you are looking for.

Maria and Larry are two very special people - and run a very special business. I have referred numerous people to them for their weddings. They are just remarkable!

I have nothing but good things to say about Floral Expressions. From our first meeting, Maria was very warm & friendly in addition to having the expertise necessary to make my day special. I showed her some photos of ideas I had & at our second meeting, she had a sample centerpiece prepared that was exactly what I had in mind. She was helpful with colors, ideas and also on how to save on pricing. Both Maria & Larry were very professional and handled every detail to my expectations. At the wedding, Larry had everything finished on schedule as requested. They created beautiful candle arrangements with baby rose wreaths which rested on mirrors. They were very elegant, just as I had imagined. The entire reception room had a romantic glow which reflected in the mirrors, plus the frangrant smell of the flowers just filled the room. My guests were raving the entire evening about the centerpieces & floral arrangements which were utilized for both the ceremony & reception. My centerpieces were created specifically so that everyone at the table took something home with them. I had many people ask who made the centerpieces & I am still getting compliments to this day. I still have the candle arrangements at home now & the rose wreaths have dried & look just as beautiful as they did on the wedding day. I wish that I could attach photos of Maria & Larry's work, but I'm sure they have photos when you contact them. Once again Floral Expressions played a huge part in making my wedding day very special & I would recommend them to anyone who is planning to get married.

Maria and Larry were very knowledgable and very helpful. They had a lot of resources for me to look through and had a lot of ideas of their own. They were very professional. It was very easy working with them which relieved a lot of my stress. Everything looked wonderful. We received many comments on just how pretty all of the flowers and decor turned out. The flowers were of high quality as well. I would highly recommend them. They were actually recommended to me.

I mostly worked with Maria. She was very accommodating right from the beginning. I explained what I was looking for and Maria made suggestions that would accommodate both my vision and my budget.

The wedding flowers for both the ceremony and reception were beautiful and exactly as I imagined they would be. The centerpieces were so beautiful...our guests snatched them up right away!! Everything was perfect.

I would definitely recommend Maria and Larry for any wedding or event.

I was under a great deal of stress trying to plan the wedding of my dreams in only 6 months having just moved halfway across the country. I found Floral Expressions by Maria & Larry online and they were the ONLY florist that actually had more than 2 or 3 photos of examples of flowers to view. This was extremely helpful to me as I had very limited time in person to make all the arrangements for my wedding. I viewed examples of hundreds of flowers for brides bouquets, table flowers, bridesmaid flowers, church flowers etc. on their website. I found some beautiful photos of table arrangements and called to price them. I spoke with Larry who was so pleasant, patient and willing to work with me to get me what I wanted in my budget. The day before I had an appointment with Larry, my connecting flight was cancelled leaving me stuck in the middle of the country with no luggage. The next day I took an early flight to NJ and drove straight to my appointment (not the ideal way to book your wedding flowers!) I was a bit frazzled but Larry was so kind and understanding he took all the time I needed to pick out my flowers. He also had a sample made up of what my table arrangements would look like based on our earlier conversations of what I wanted and my budget. When I walked in and saw the sample it was so absolutely gorgeous that I felt very confident that all my flowers were going to turn out fabulous!
Well brides everywhere let me just tell you that my flowers turned out more gorgeous than my wildest expectations!! My flowers were one of the very few things that turned out right with my wedding. My bouquet and my bridesmaid's bouquets turned out exactly as I had imagined! The colors in my bridesmaid's bouquets were so brilliant it caught my eye while I was on the altar that I remember that moment even today! The church flowers were just awesome and the table arrangements simply exquisite! When I saw the arrangement Maria, Larry's wife made for our head table, my jaw dropped! It was stunning!!! I had so much trouble with my other wedding vendors lying to me, cheating me and not having things turn out the way I wanted, that one of the happiest memories I have is how perfect my wedding flowers turned out. My experience with Floral Expressions by Maria & Larry was just wonderful, the quality of the flowers was above and beyond what I expected, the value unbeatable, their friendliness and professionalism exceptional, their willingness to get you what you want in your price range unbelievable! My mother dried my bouquet, my bridesmaids bouquets, my head table arrangement and the church flowers and has made some awesome dried flower arrangements so that my beautiful wedding flowers will live on!

After going to 4 florists and them telling myself and my now husband what we wanted and not one of them listening to what we wanted we finally saw Larry. He was a breath of fresh air. We conveyed to him what we wanted and he did a spectacular job. From the sample table arrangement to the day of the wedding we were kept informed every step of the way. People still comment on the flowers and the decor or the wedding. Larry and his staff went above and beyond, making everything special. I would highly recommend Floral Expressions as a floral and decor vendor.

Maria totally got what I was asking for for my winter themed wedding. The arrangements came out better than I imagined. I loved that she showed you sample center pieces before so you could see them and make any changes. I would suggest phone as opposed to email in terms of communicating, simply because we are from an email generation where we want a response within 2 hours - but rest assured their work is phenomenal and no one could come close to what they were offering for their prices.

This was a recommendation from my Maid of Honor. On the first meeting, Larry spent 2 hours going through what we wanted. He immediately saw my vision and worked with it. He was not afraid to tell me when I was making a wrong decision, which I appreciated. He and Maria have been in business a long time and know what they are doing. They were lovely to work with and the all the flowers on the day of were gorgeous.

Floral Expressions was the florist for my October wedding. I couldn't have been more disappointed. My bouquet arrived at my house and the flowers were dead.. brown and gross. I even asked my photographer if he could photoshop the pictures to at least make the flowers look alive. When we arrived at the reception, we immediately noticed that the centerpieces were not completed as we had agreed. Flowers that we had talked about including were not there. Disappointed cannot even describe how I felt.
