GARY CRESS, of James Cress Flowers- FABULOUS GARY!
You are so truly fabulous, magnificent, professional, amazing, talented and one of a kind. THANK YOU for going up and beyond to make our Wedding a true Christmas Winter Wonderland. You made things go so smooth for us, especially with me living in California, and planning a Wedding in 7 weeks that was in New York. You saw our vision, and you gave us what exactly what we desired - something beautiful and unique, that represented who WE are. All of our guests and families were in awe, and still are. And most of all, you truly cared about us. WE THANK YOU SO MUCH and LOVE YOU!

A month before my wedding, my original florist backed out of my wedding unprofessionally and I was left in tears trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces and pull this off in less than 4 weeks to go till the big day. Here's the kicker, that florist was a house vendor which is truly disappointing. I ended up going with Giorgio's other recommended florist, which was James Cress and all I can say is I should've went with them from the very beginning. Gary was amazing to work with. He was such a sweetheart, picking up this project so last minute and making sure everything was done exactly the way I imagined it. He emailed back right away every time (the other vendor was only prompt in responding to emails BEFORE contracts were signed and a ghost full of excuses thereafter with emails and phone calls) and answered all my questions and was always very reassuring me that everything would be okay. And at every appointment, he was such a sweetheart always sending me home with beautiful roses to help brighten my day.
And on the day of the wedding, Gary was nothing short of an angel. He set up my ceremony space in the most beautiful lights and rose petals. It all looked so magical, all my guests complimented how much of a fairytale it looked. My centerpieces were beautiful and romantic and all the bridal flowers looked amazing against the bridesmaids dresses. I don't know what else to say other than that Gary was wonderful in everything he did. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to everyone.

The flowers and service provided by Gary and his team were outstanding! Our guests could not stop talking about the flowers for the ceremony and center pieces.. The flowers stayed alive for 10 days after the wedding and my bouquet (red roses) is still alive. We would recommend James Cress for any affair giving this florist the highest rating possible. Gary and his team were extremely professional and flexible. They went above and beyond to create a memorable event.

My wedding was on September 28th 2014 and James Cress did our flowers.. and all I can say they are absolutely the best florist out there . planning a wedding is stressful as it is and Gary and Andrea had made the whole experience an absolute pleasure and they had gone beyond to make sure all our our wishes and dreams some true. They had worked with me and my husband thru the entire process to ensure all the flowers are not only beautiful but also match our decor and wedding venues. All of our guests complimented all the centerpieces and table decor, which consisted of tall red flowers centerpieces sitting on top of glass cylinders filled with red flowers and glass cylinders with floating candles.. Gary and his team managed to make my dream of a room filled with glittering candles surrounded by red flowers on a black and silver black background come true.. it was truly magical.. I could write a 100 reviews to explain the amount of detail and hard work that they put into our wedding and spend days trying to thank them.. they really are true professionals and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a florist and event decorator who is not only professional but also creative.


They are absolute pleasure to work with.. professionals.. creative.. friendly people who love what they do and care enough to ensure people's weddings/ event are their dreams come true!!! Most importantly they make it easy and a fun process.

We worked with Gary and told him of our vision for our wedding. He gave us feedback and gave us great ideas. At that point, we told him to go with what he thought would work best. So glad we did. He created the most beautiful floral arrangements. The mix was just what I had envisioned for my wedding - warm fall colors and fall flowers. They really gave me a new appreciation for flowers. Everyone was commenting on how gorgeous they were and they complemented our dresses and the venue perfectly. Thanks Gary and James Cress for your expertise and beautiful work. Highly recommended.

We worked with Gary and told him of our vision for our wedding. He gave us feedback and gave us great ideas. At that point, we told him to go with what he thought would work best. So glad we did. He created the most beautiful floral arrangements. The mix was just what I had envisioned for my wedding - warm fall colors and fall flowers. They really gave me a new appreciation for flowers.

Gary was hands down the best vendor I worked while planning my wedding at The Plaza Hotel in NYC! He was amazing from start to finish. His enthusiasm was unmatched & it was a pleasure to work with someone as excited about my wedding as I was. He captured the vision I had on the first try and I'm still receiving compliments from guests about the ceremony room & centerpieces for the reception. Gary and his crew worked around the clock the day of the event to make sure everything was perfect. His professionalism & sincere passion for what he does shines through in this work. Thank you James Cress for an unforgettable event!!
