All I can say is WOW. When my mom asked me if my wedding was what I expected, I told her it was everything I expected and MORE and the flowers played a huge part. Bob did the flowers for my brother's wedding in December and although I had a completely different vision for my summer wedding I knew he would be the right choice and man, was he ever!! Bob was thorough, and 100% committed from day one. I had a vision in mind and a FIRM budget and he delivered more than I could have imagined within my budget! Bob was flexible, responsive and reliable. He made my vision a reality and made my wedding an event to remember for everyone that attended. I cannot say enough about how great his work was. My sister-in-law had an excellent experience with him in December and even though she was changing her mind about things up until the last second, Bob delivered perfectly. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Our florist did such a great job and the flowers turned out even better than I pictured. He was extremely flexible and allowed changes even the week before the wedding. He had great ideas and the flowers turned out amazing. It was even better than I was imagining. Bob is very easy to work with and always available. Worth the value!

I went with Rosemary's Garden after 2 people I knew referred him. In hindsight, I probably should have shopped around more.

Bob was friendly enough, but there were challenges right after I put the deposit down. He asked that we meet several times to discuss what I envisioned for my and the bridesmaids' bouquets. And somehow after all those meetings, it still didn't come out right. I said I wanted a slight cascade bouquet with roses spray painted blue because the girls' dresses were navy. He said he couldn't spray paint them blue because they would turn out too dark and appear black...not sure why Jewel was able to do it for my bridal shower then? And for my arrangement, I picked out a photo of a slight cascade of roses from one of his books. It didn't look anything like the photo. Also, he forgot the one thing I really wanted to match my dress and jewelry -- the stephanotis with pearls. When I asked him about it, he said he didn't have it written down that I wanted that, even though I know we discussed it during our 4 meetings.

In addition to getting my bouquet wrong, he forgot two bouquets -- the Blessed Mother bouquet and the bouquet toss bouquet! I had to have my ceremony coordinator scrounge up roses for the Blessed Mother and use my mom's bouquet for the toss. Also, while he offered to bring the ceremony's centerpieces to the venue after the ceremony, he did so right after the ceremony, so the centerpieces weren't on the alter for pictures.

Despite all the challenges I encountered with Rosemary's Garden, I'm giving them 2.5 stars because the flowers I did end up with were pretty..just not what I asked for.

Bob was amazing! He is the sweetest man and all about making the bride happy :) I had a hard time deciding on what colors and flowers I wanted because I like so many different things. He really helped me narrow everything down and pick flowers that were appropriate for the time of year we were getting married and the type of wedding we were having. & he also took into consideration the type of dress I had and my height etc. I didn't even know that those were things you had to take into consideration! He is great at what he does, truly a professional in every way. Don't let it throw you off that he writes everything on paper, he's just old school but that was fine with me because I am myself. Bob also put the flowers into the centerpieces I made and gave me a great price! I would highly recommend Bob, and Rosemary's Garden.

Rosemary's Garden came HIGHLY recommended by several people that I know. They were the first and only florist we looked at. His price was UNBEATABLE!!!

The owner of the place is the one that assisted us. He not only guaranteed but delivered on his promise to have exactly what we showed him.

All the flowers were beautiful and great quality flowers. A good majority of them are still alive over a week later!!!

So if you are in the area and need a good, reliable and well priced florist, Rosemary's Garden is your place to go!

Bob at Rosemary's Garden was great with having meetings with me to gather details for the wedding. We met probably four times before the wedding, and each time he even sent me home with complimentary fresh flowers! He had lots of books, and towards the day of the wedding, made me a sample bouquet to see. I was a little cautious of the fact he writes everything down on paper, rather that imputing it electronically. By the day of my wedding, I had over six sheets of handwritten notes, which were a little daunting and unorganized in my opinion. Nonetheless, the flowers turned out the way I wanted, so I suppose his method works for him and his team (just not my preference).

On the day of the wedding, the delivery came hours too early and the flowers weren't packaged in any casing or anything, just laying in a cardboard box. The flowers did not look very fresh, a lot of the petals were already turning and some of the white flowers had brown fringes. We only had a small mini fridge in our room (we were at a hotel), and we were supposed to accommodate 6 bouquets, 11 boutonnieres, and 2 corsages in a small hotel mini-fridge?! This was extremely inconvenient to me and we ended up having to use the refrigerator of a nearby hotel room that wasn't being used. I feel this could have been avoided had the delivery been at the time specified.

Overall, the alter-pieces looked nice and they let us borrow the columns at no additional cost. I was able to get a very good price on the flowers, but even though I got my flowers for a steal, I still think I overpaid given the condition of the flowers when they arrived.

Sidenote: the man who delivered the flowers lingered around my hotel room for a few moments imposing me to tip him (which I had already planned to do, but to make it obvious?!) So unprofessional.

NOTE: the bouquets were very large and plentiful. Personally, I did not want to pay a ton for flowers because in my opinion, they are just going to die anyway, I was just a little disappointed that they looked the way they did.

I would recommend this business to future brides, just be VERY explicit with your expectations.
