My aunt arranged the flowers for my wedding, but we purchased the buckets of mixed flowers from Shady Grove. They were absolutely stunning. Susan was very easy to work with, and provided the exact colors that we were looking for. We received so many compliments on the flowers, and saved so much money by buying the buckets and arranging the pieces ourselves. I would recommend Shady Grove to anyone looking for gorgeous flowers at a decent price.

We ordered a few buckets of specific colors and corsages from Shady Grove Gardens and Nursery. The cut flowers and corsages were gorgeous and the right price! The order form was straight forward and easy to fill out. Susan was willing to discuss my options over the phone and explain the which flowers would be best for wedding colors and season which was great since I live in Illinois!

The individual flowers were gorgeous and buying by the bucket is the way to go. Working with Shady Grove was overall very frustrating. We met to discuss the types of flowers and arrangements we wanted well in advance of the wedding, this meeting was not well-documented by the florist and she forgot key details about our requests. Bookkeeping and other records we had sent her were not well-maintained, causing a lot of last-minute stress on our part. The bridal bouquet (which was the only bouquet crafted by the florist) was not ready at the pick-up time and had to be picked up the morning of the wedding. When we went to pick up the bouquet the morning of, we were treated as if it was an oversight on our part. I recommend speaking often with follow-up in writing if you go with this vendor.

Shady Grove Gardens & Nursery responded with the following comments:

I'm so sorry this bride was disappointed. She did however, only order loose flowers and paid the deposit for ONLY the loose flowers. The order form has nothing else on it. NO mention of a bouquet until pickup . No mention of paying for it. I dropped everything to make her a great bouquet. I'm sorry she misunderstood the ordering process requiring 1/2 deposit and or letting me know there is an addition.

Susan and Brent at Shady Grove were awesome! We had a minimalist, nature-inspired wedding at Camp Sky Ranch in October. I bought mixed wildflower buckets and had Susan make my bouquet and the boutonnieres.

The bouquet was stunning, pale and muted colors with an antique look. I wanted something that would match my champagne silk and cream lace dress with the neutrals of the linens. She listened carefully to my ideas, made smart suggestions, and helped me keep my costs down. Thanks Susan.

Also, the wildflowers were phenomenal. Vivid, fresh, and sparkling, these flowers were straight out of a Martha Stewart magazine.

I highly recommend them!

Susan and Brent made our wedding ten times more beautiful because of their absolutely gorgeous flowers and greenery! We used them for all of our floral needs, including the greenery for our ceremony arch, interior and exterior decorations, corsages, boutineres, and all of the bouquets. Susan listened to exactly what I wanted and was able to provide a variety of options and put together bouquets and greenery for our arch even more beautiful than I thought. Almost all of our guests (and even people just looking at pictures) commented on how lovely our flowers were. My bridesmaids absolutely loved their bouquets. It was nice too to know they were local, seasonal and homegrown, giving our wedding a naturally gorgeous feel! For everything we received, the pricing and service was excellent. I would DEFINITELY recommend that if you are getting married in this area, please use them for your flowers!

Great service! I chose to purchase their mixed buckets and I chose the colors that I wanted in the buckets. I then did the flower arrangements myself. I was so pleased with the variation I had to choose from and the beauty of the flowers! I know they can do great arrangements as well, but the DIY option is so amazing for brides on a budget (like me)! Susan was also great a communicating and she was extremely accomodating for my needs. Thank you thank you! Loved them!

Shady Grove Nursery was absolutely incredible! Susan and Brent made us the most beautiful corsages and boutineers. My cascading bouquet was adored by all! It was eclectic, beautiful, and the best part, made entirely from wildflowers from our area. We bought buckets of wildflowers and greenery for the centerpieces and assembled them the night before an they were breathtaking! The flowers held up great and were absolutely the best quality!
I highly recommend using this company!
