Catherine at Somerset Florist is fantastic to work with. She immediately understood the look and feel we were going for and created the most beautiful centerpieces. We provided some of the pillar candles and some other reception area decorations - which we dropped of with her and she incorporated into our look. She was so easy to work with and professional.

I would highly recommend Somerset Florist to anyone looking for a wedding florist!

Catherine did the flowers for my sister's wedding 2 years ago and there was no question, I had to have her do the flowers for mine! I showed her a picture of what I liked and a picture of the venue. From there she created the most beautiful bouquets and arrangements. Everything was perfect!

Catherine was wonderful to work with. I had a unique beach theme, centered around the day my fiance proposed, and I needed her guidance and wisdom on how it could be incorporated throughout the wedding in a tasteful and sophisticated manner. I've never received so many compliments! I explained that, being a teacher, I was working on a budget and she was extremely respectful of that. She worked with me as we created the color palette together, but the vision was truly her own. She was flexible, easy to work with, and is clearly an expert in the field. I can't recommend Somerset Hills Florist enough. The day of the wedding she treated me like a friend, stopping by the house and personally delivering the bouquets. She takes a great amount of pride in her work and it shows. We communicated through email and phone calls, and she was always quick to respond to both. I highly recommend Somerset Hills Florist. Thank you Catherine for helping make my wedding day so special and beautiful. We kept a few of the beach glass bowls and I love looking at it--it brings me right back to our wedding day!

My wedding was 4/19/14, a Spring that had followed a horrible Northeast winter had left me wondering if there would even be flowers available for my wedding. Low and behold Lauren at Somerset Hills made magic happen and the arrangements that arrived at my wedding were gorgeous! Throughout the process Lauren was very attentive, and completely understood my vision. And the flowers for my wedding party and my own bouquet were absolutely perfect! I would say their pricing was toward the higher end of moderate, but honestly, you get what you pay for and I have zero regrets.

We knew from the moment we visited Somerset Hills Florist that they had to be the ones to do our flowers for our wedding. Cathy was extremely helpful! She was able to take my vision of my floral arrangements to another level of elegance and class. My bridal bouquet was gorgeous and exactly what I envisioned. The floral arrangements at the church and venue were truly breathtaking. Our guests are still talking about our center pieces and level of sophistication Somerset Hills Florist brought to our wedding. One of our guests even asked to take pictures of the floral arrangements at our wedding because she loved the color scheme and wants to mirror the arrangements at her wedding later this year. Thank you to Cathy and her staff for all their creativity, help and patience. We are truly grateful.

I walked in with a Pinterest picture of a bouquet and told Catherine that I wanted "something sort of like this, but a little different." After asking me questions about my dress, venue, color scheme, etc, Catherine was able to create exactly what I wanted, and gave me great suggestions for ceremony and reception flowers! The bouquets were incredibly beautiful and help up wonderfully during the ceremony and all evening. After meeting with Catherine, I knew I was in great hands - and she and the rest of the staff at Somerset Hills did a fantastic job!

We chose Somerset Florist for our wedding flowers after meeting with Lauren-she was very friendly and excited to work with me. I showed her some pictures that I had printed out from pinterest and she was able to incorporate some different flowers to make my idea unique. She came up with a great idea based off of my wedding party colors, which then became the theme of my wedding. I could tell that she was so excited to work on my wedding flowers because my flowers were different than the norm. We met with her to see a sample of my centerpieces and after seeing one, I knew she would do excellent work arranging the rest of my bouquets and flowers. She incorporated my overall idea with the theme she came up with and it turned out great. The day of my wedding our flowers were delivered on time and I couldn’t believe how great everything turned out. My flowers were more than I could have asked for and my photographer was able to capture many great shots. Thank you Lauren and her team for making my wedding flowers spectacular!

Great florist to work with. I only met with the florist once and she was able to understand the look I was going for with my flowers. I was planning the wedding from another state, so a lot of communication was via email and that was never a problem. They were very flexible with any changes I made to flowers or drop off time. I was also always updated on how my changes would affect the overall cost.

I have only positive, wonderful things to say about Somerset Hills Florist. They were creative and attentive when I first went into the shop to talk about the wedding day. I worked with Lauren for the most part, and she was enthusiastic, and full of ideas for making the tables look unique and 'fall-like'. The prices were very reasonable, and the details for the day were spectacular. I loved everything about what they did. I have already recommended them to friends in the area.

I have seriously never seen such beautiful flowers as the ones that were in my and my bridesmaids bouquets this past weekend. Somerset Hills florist captured colors and textures to make the most unique and stunning bouquets! I sent Catherine photos of what I liked in advance of our first meeting and when we met she had ideas and examples, but when I saw the final product I was absolutely blown away! Catherine was so easy to work with and her professionalism went above and beyond! My centerpieces were truly unique and memorable as well. When I forgot to bring floating candles that day, she came to the rescue! Brides, you will not be disappointed with this florist!

Lauren from Somerset Hills Florist is truly an artist, and she is extremely professional and highly skilled in what she does. The first time we met with her, we brought in pictures of the style and flowers we liked and her face instantly lit up and she began pulling sample flowers and showed us pictures of flowers that she didn't have in the store but wanted to use- she absolutely loves her job and it shows in her incredible work! She was the only florist we met with, booked her the same day! We booked her in the winter time for our August wedding and she would email us and keep in touch which I really liked, we were never forgotten about! Then closer to the wedding we went in to meet with her and she created a sample centerpiece - it was better than I could have ever dreamed of! She totally understood our vision and created beautiful floral arrangements. Our wedding looked like a beautiful romantic garden, exactly what we wanted! Somerset Hills Florist is very reasonably priced, and they are extremely flexible! They worked with us to make sure we got everything we wanted and stayed under budget! I had a great experience with them and Lauren, I highly recommend them!

Catherine at Somerset Hills was the first florist that I, my mother and mother-in-law met with, and we liked her so much we didn't meet with anyone else! She offered great recommendations based on my color scheme and personal preferences, and the bouquets turned out to be just as gorgeous as I had hoped! She was very responsive despite being on maternity leave and worked with us on all of the details. My mother-in-law made beautiful centerpieces for the tables and Catherine was great in working with her on the floral accompaniments. We were very happy in choosing this florist!

Catherine did the flowers at my sister's wedding...then at my Mom's wedding...and then at my wedding in December!!! We love her so much...she brings more to the table than just GORGEOUS FLOWERS! Her spirit and energy and love of the flowers is obvious and stands out in everything she does. She made my wedding easy and beautiful. People kept commenting on how stunning everything looked! The day of the wedding, my cake topper didn't arrive in the mail and I called her and she said "Don't worry about it. I'll take care of it" and when I saw my cake, it took my breath away! She completely got my vision, and my sister's, and my mom's - and we all had different wedding styles!! I'd HIGHLY recommend her to anyone. She's the best!

My wedding was at Dolce Basking Ridge this past August, 2012 and Somerset Hills Florist was one of the recommended florist. I did not know what to expect until I had my first meeting with Catherine. I went in without a clue of what kind of flowers/colors/theme I wanted to have and she helped bring my style to the forefront (all within a nicely kept budget of course!). Catherine tried to accommodate my wishes at every turn and was very responsive and creative with her solutions. Above all, Somerset Hill Florist did a fantastic job on my wedding bouquet - I look at my wedding pictures and the arrangement was impeccable! Thank you, Catherine! I would highly recommend Somerset Hill Florist!

Working with Catherine of Somerset Hills Florist was an absolute delight. Before hiring her I had previously met with a few other florist and just didn't have a good feeling about any of them. Once I met with Catherine I knew why! I had wanted hydrageas in my bridal bouquet, and Catherine was the first person to tell me that hydrangeas have a very high chance of wilting once they are taken out of water. Her honesty and professionalism was enough to immediately win me over. I also visited with a picture of bright purple bouquets as inspiration for my bridesmaids. Little did I know most of the flowers would be out of season for my August wedding. Not to worry because Catherine not only perfectly recreated them using different flowers on my wedding day, but created something even more beautiful! From the girls' bouquets, to mine, to the two different centerpieces designs, and all the rest of the details Catherine took care of, the flowers were absolutely gorgeous! I was actually in the ballroom the morning the day after the wedding for brunch and saw the venue clearing the flowers away. I was almost moved to tears at the thought of something so beautiful being taken away! Catherine also helped me pick out linens which added the perfect touch of color to bring the entire ballroom together. Doing everything through Catherine made it so easy on me! If you want gorgeous flowers, and a helpful, professional, and honest person to work with, look no further than Catherine and Somerset Hills Florist!

Catherine was phenomenal. I was very particular about my flowers and interviewed about 10 different florists, and Catherine was easily my first choice. She is insanely knowledgeable about flowers and she also has an enthusiasm and passion about flowers that is really refreshing.

I showed Catherine pictures of flowers and bouquets I liked, and she was able to dissect and identify which elements were actually appealing to me so she could figure out exactly what I was looking for. We came up with a design for my wedding, and she completely understood the look and feel I wanted. A couple of months later, I changed my mind, had second thoughts and was being a typical bride. Catherine was very patient with me, helped to figure out what I wanted (again) and gave me her honest opinions which I really appreciated.

What I really liked about Catherine and what makes her unique is that she gave me a flower 'trial' before the wedding, and I know not all brides get that. She made two centerpieces for me to show me what they would like the day of the wedding a couple of weeks before the wedding. This let me actually see what the flowers would look like and let me make any last minute tweaks. I ended up realizing that I didn't love some of the colors of flowers that I had chosen, and we were able to change them to make them perfect. I can't begin to explain how wonderful it was to get to see your centerpiece beforehand, and not decide on the day of the wedding that you made a mistake or that you had pictured something differently :)

On the day of, I was blown away. I walked into my venue and couldn't believe that those were the flowers that were going to be on my tables. They were even more beautiful that I had expected, and she was so generous with the quantity of flowers she used in both the centerpieces and bouquets. They were so full, grand and filled with flowers. Catherine surpassed my expectations and I couldn't have been happier to work with her.

Catherine Cotter, owner of Somerset Hills Florist, is amazing - kind, professional, and so knowledgeable. From our very first meeting, she completely understood the look I was after, and she was able to articulate details even when I wasn't quite sure what I was after. I wanted bold colors and blooms in simple, organic arrangements, and she definitely delivered. The flowers were absolutely perfect on the wedding day, and the process of working with Catherine and her team was easy and so pleasant. I can't imagine having worked with anyone else!

Catherine and her staff at Somerset Hills Florist were excellent from my first visit through to the day of the wedding. Catherine took time with me to be sure that she knew what I was envisioning for our special day. Her artistry was evident in her shoppe and then as we proceeded to map out the bouquets, headpiece and floral arrangements and cake embellishment. The flowers were absolutely exquisite and delivered at the peak of freshness . In fact they delivered the flower in two groups to keep them as fresh as possible (needed some early for morning photos). Catherine was patient throughout with my numerous questions and requests. Her staff was warm and accomodating. I couldn't have been more pleased. Everyone commented on the beauty and uniqueness of these lovely floral groupings.

I would highly recommend Somerset Hills Florist! Catherine was absolutely amazing!! I was planning our wedding from afar, so choosing flowers would have been a nightmare if we hadn't found such a responsive florist. Catherine and I exchanged several photos over email regarding my style, so when we met in person for the first time she already knew the look that I wanted. She captured my dreams perfectly! She used my ideas as a guide and then chose the perfect flowers that were in season. When I saw the sample of the centerpieces, I was nearly brought to tears because it was exactly as I had envisioned. She worked with our budget and even helped us determine the color of the linens. The bouquets were gorgeous and the wow factor of the centerpieces was unbelievable. She was extremely knowledgable about flowers and brought out books to ensure the flowers that she was naming were ones that we liked.

Catherine knows her flowers and has endless patience! I was having trouble communicating the vision I wanted to Catherine and luckily she was able to do "mock centerpieces and bouquets" as our wedding date got closer. Originally the centerpieces were not what I was looking for so Catherine spent close to 2 hours making changes and making sure I was 100% happy with the way everything looked. On our actual wedding day, everything came out PERFECT! Because Catherine took her time to truly understand what I was looking for, I could not have been happier. On top of all this, her prices are extremely reasonable as well!

Catherine and her team at Somerset Hills Florist did an amazing job with the flowers and details for our wedding at the Olde Mill Inn! My husband and I came to Catherine with a vision and just a few details of what we wanted and she made it a reality. She is wonderfully patient, professional, fun, and receptive to ideas. She easily accommodated our visits to her cute storefront every time we were in town from Queens. The flowers were perfect; exactly what we wanted, and her ideas to include some around our gazebo and on our chairs fit perfectly. Everyone raved about the beautiful flowers! She also did an amazing job with the cake flowers, which we had her do almost last minute! We also rented tablecloths and napkins from her for a good price.

I would highly recommend Somerset Hills Florist to anyone!

Catherine was suggested to us by our caterer and as soon as we met with her we fell in love! Not does Catherine come across as confident and knowledgeable about flowers, she is also great at making suggestions about what will look best for a particular venue or style of dress. She is also great at working within your budget, never pushing you to add more than you can pay for- she might even save you money- like for us suggesting that additional lighting will not be necessary for our venue.

In addition to personal flowers she did our centerpieces and everything turned out even better than expected! Thank you so much for a great service!

Catherine is a true artist- as a designer myself, and an extremely picky one, she not only was able to intuit my ideas, she was able to supersede my expectations with her floral designs.

We got married at a location (Natirar) where we were the first ever couple to ever get married there. There were a ton of logistical issues to iron out, in which Catherine went above and beyond to make sure everything was okay so that I wouldn't have to worry. Her and my vision of an English garden with very natural elements were pulled together in a highly sophisticated and upscale way. Her tablescapes were to die for, and till this day, everyone says it was the most beautiful wedding they have been to because of the decor!

I would highly recommend Catherine for any party, or wedding. She has done both my sister in laws weddings, and routinely provides florals for my in laws- she is so creative and can do any style and any budget. We love her work and she is super funny and great to work with on top!

Somerset Hills Florist did a wonderful job with our wedding flowers. I had a very specific vision of what I wanted, and Catherine was able to understand my vision perfectly. She contributed ideas that really gave our floral arrangements a "wow" factor. They delivered all the bouquets and boutinierres were delivered to our hotel on time, and the arrangements at the venue were done beautifully.

The main flowers for the venue were white and blue hydrangea. Catherine was able to negotiate with their flower vendor to get a plethora of hydrangea based on our budget. They were able to provide extra arrangements of hydrangea bunches throughout the venue without charging us extra. The arrangements on all the tables were beautiful. I wanted different arrangements throughout the room, at different heights, and in different silver containers (with a vintage feel). Catherine gave me the idea of using unique vases such as silver tea cups, tea pots, and creamers. I was so excited with this idea, and it looked beautiful. Our guests were impressed with how unique our arrangements were.

Also, because Somerset Hills Florist owns all of the vases they use, the rental charge of vases is extremely low. They were able to meet us under budget, even though every other florist I visited said we would need to spend $1,000-3,000 more than I was comfortable with for much plainer arrangements that did not meet my vision.

Overall, I could not have asked for a better experience with a florist. I would highly recommend using Somerset Hills Florist.

Catherine at Somerset Hills Florist took care of all my flowers for the bridal party, parents and honored guests, my ceremony, reception and I used her vendor to rent linens for my tables. My mom also used her services for my bridal shower. I can't explain enough about how fabulous she was as a flower/decor consultant! Catherine is extremely creative, works with absolutely any budget (and makes sure to adhere to the budget through the whole process), offers great suggestions and can really help you put your thoughts and ideas together...even if you don't exactly know how to explain them! Her creative outlook, knowledge of all types and colors of flowers, and flexibility really helped us design my perfect look. She even came to my reception hall several weeks before the wedding to show me tables with sample linens and centerpieces so I could see exactly what things would look like. Catherine's professionalism certainly stands out and I would be happy to call her again for any up coming events! Thanks for creating such wonderful displays!

I do not think my wedding would have been nearly as beautiful without Somerset Hills Florist. We decided to visit them through the recommendation of our venue (Olde Mill Inn), and from the moment we sat down with Catherine Cotter, we felt like we were in good hands.

Catherine is a true talent, and her knowledge is unmatched. I brought her sample photos of what I was looking for, and not only did she know precisely the style I wanted, exactly the flowers needed and what season they were available, but she added to my vision 10 fold. We decided on using her that very day.

Throughout the process, she was a pleasure to work with. She was prompt and attentive with communication through email and by phone, never leaving me hanging for a second. She never assumed something would be fine; if something was not panning out the way we had planned it, she would call me, send me images of the alternatives, even text me photos of sample arrangements she had whipped up. Being the detail oriented bride that I was, this was VERY comforting.

We were also slightly indecisive, and Catherine's patience was a virtue. She gave us suggestions without pushing us into decisions. She took her time with us like she had no other clients but us.

Her contracts are very thorough and she leaves no stone left unturned. She was precisely on time the day of the affair, and even checked in with me and my husband after setting up to make sure we had everything we needed. And this goes without saying for how much I'm raving about her, but all the flower arrangements were beyond gorgeous. Just what I had pictured in my head and then some. Like I said, she is very talented.

Price-wise, she was very reasonable. We only visited two other florists in the process, but her prices were comparable to anything you'd find in this area. However, that coupled with her impeccable customer service, the money was well spent indeed.

I will say that if you are having a Jewish affair, and you're looking to use a birch wood chuppah like we did, it can get pricey. Ask if anyone else around your date needs one too. The branches are pretty disposable/don't last too long, so if you can share the branches with another couple, it cuts the cost down significantly. Some people like to elaborately decorate their chuppah with flowers, but we did what Catherine considered the bare minimum, and it looked GORGEOUS. Just a few bunches of flowers on the front corners and some ivy strung across.

So in short, Somerset Hills was one of my favorite vendors, due in most part to Catherine. I would DEFINITELY recommend them!

Catherine is wonderful to work with. My bouquets looked beautiful and so did my centerpieces. She charged us a nominal fee and she would set them up. She has a very modern style which I love. Her ideas are fresh. She didn’t try to up sell me when I told her we were on a flower budget and she even came in $200 less than we were quoted. I can’t wait for my friends to get married so they can use her!

Catherine was very easy to work with even when we kept adding things we wanted or changing the colors. She did a beautiful job on the flowers - really captured the fall look with ivories, reds, and dark oranges/golds. The bouquets were beautiful - everyone ohh'd and ahh'ed over them when they arrived, and I could not have been happier with the centerpieces. I was worried that the dark red, ivory, and gold color theme we had chosen would look too valentine's day-ish, but the flowers really make it look like a spectacular fall wedding! She also did the flowers for our cake, and it looked amazing!

I'm couldn't be happier with our experience with Somerset Hills Florist! Catherine is so easy to work with and knew exactly what I was looking for. Our centerpieces we're so much better than we had expected, they were just gorgeous! This was by far the best experience we had with all of our vendors. Very flexible, willing to change anything we asked for, and the staff is just pleasant to work with! I highly recommend them!

Catherine was wonderful to work with. We had a peacock theme and blue bridesmaids dresses - and I don't know much about flowers and just had some general ideas of colors. Catherine's ideas for the flowers were really inspiring and helped me get excited about the wedding. I LOVED all of our flowers - the bouquets, the ceremony arrangements, boutonnieres and especially the centerpieces and cake decorations. Everything was perfect. I generally find flowers at weddings to be boring, but the colors and the arrangements Catherine came up with really popped and brightened the day. I am so happy that we went with Somerset.

I could tell from the beginning that Catherine at Somerset Hills Florist was the perfect vendor match for me. She is a fast-thinker and is highly-organized. I came to the florist with no ideas of what types of flowers I wanted, and Catherine gave me floral ideas and then more ideas when I just 'wanted to see what else was out there'. She is very knowledgeable on flowers and what flowers are good for what types of arrangements (some last longer without water than others). We had a number of last-minute requests, such as decorating the outside of the church, decorating the unity candle, basket for the rose petals to throw at the bride and groom...and Catherine came through with all of them. Wonderful to work with and highly recommended.

Catherine is absolutely wonderful! I couldn't have asked for a better presentation of my floral arrangements, my bouquets, or any of the minor details that were provided for the reception and ceremony. The flower quality was bar-none, I have never seen more beautiful flowers in my entire life! Everyone commented on how awesome the flowers were. I had people fighting over taking home the arrangements! :) Catherine and her staff are top-notch!

Catherine's work is amazing and gorgeous! She did a beautiful cascading orchid bouquet for me and smaller orchid bouquets for my bridesmaids. The table centerpieces were absolutely wonderful (tall glass cylinders with orchids in water). I have no knowledge of wedding flowers, and she was a total pro and was able to walk me through everything that we'd need. Most importantly, she worked within the budget i gave her and I think our wedding looked elegant and beautiful (no "cheap-looking" flowers)! On the day of, she was on time and her set up was flawless and fast. If you are looking for a no-stress, talented florist that will make your wedding look so much more elegant, call Catherine at Somerset Hills Florist!

I can't say enough great things about Catherine. She did the flowers for my sister's wedding and because of the amazing job she did, I booked her immediately after getting engaged! Her work is absolutely amazing. When I went to her for my first consultation, I wasn't quite sure of what I was looking for, but after describing my dress and the reception hall and what I imagined the wedding to be like, she came up with fantastic ideas for the flowers! I highly recommend Somerset Hills Florist!

OMG!! I can't say enough about Catherine and Somerset Hills Florist. My flowers were beautiful and the whole process a breeze. I met with Catherine once without really knowing what i wanted. She worked with me and guided me on colors, what was in season, sizes, ect. She asked questions and showed me pictures that helped me solidify my style and what I really wanted. The price was fantastic. Well within my budget (and I didn't even tell her my budget). They delivered on time and the flowers lasted all day and then some.

Catherine made some wonderful bouquets for us! Most importantly they were EXACTLY what I wanted. I met with several florists who sat and listened but then kept saying things like 'ivory" and "lavender" when all I ever said was "dark purple and lime". Although they were more expensive than most I met with, they were worth the extra cost to get what I wanted to see. Her arrangements for my ceremony where GORGEOUS!

I wish I could rate this florist a 100! Catherine exceeded every possible dream and vision I could have had for my wedding and kept it all within my budget. She dreamt up things that fit so perfectly with my wedding theme and made our day so amazingly beautiful! She came highly recommended by our venue: The Olde Mill Inn and our day by far was above and beyond what we could have ever dreamed and I have to thank Catherine for that! When we walked into the ballroom everything was complete, and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. If you want a florist who pays EXCEPTIONAL attention to detail, this is the place! They really know what they're talking about, they stay within your budget and they will not scrimp on quality!

Catherine's flowers was my favorite thing about my wedding (other than marrying my husband) They were absolutley beautiful, so far exceeded my high expectations. I even felt the need to write her a thank you e-mail before I left for my honeymoon. Catherine is flexible, accomodating and willing to work with you to find exactly what you are looking for without any pressure. She even invted me to see the centerpieces the day before because she wanted to make sure they were perfect. You'll be disappointed if you DON'T book her for your wedding.

People have not stopped talking about our flowers. Catherine Cotter approaches her work as an artist. Our flowers were simple, yet elegant and beautiful--exactly what we wanted. She is knowledgeable, professional, helpful and friendly. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family in the future!

This florist Catherine is fantastic, she also did my cousin's wedding and was recommended to me. What she created for the wedding looked like it cost double what the actual budget was. She was incredibly accommodating and responsive. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!

Catherine from Somerset Florist was awesome to work with. I met her at a wedding showcase and fell in love with her arrangement pictures. She is kind, sweet, easy to talk to and very artistic. She works with you in your budget, explains the different types of flowers you can pick or what works well (within your price range) and listens to your ideas. I had a vision in my mind and she did exactly what I had imagined. She is extremely creative and I recommend her to everyone and anyone that is having a big event. She was very professional and took care of every little detail. I cannot say enough good things about her.

I was very pleased with or decision to book with Somerset Hills Florist. Catherine, the owner, is a very kind non pushy kind of person. We met her at a bridal show at our reception venue and not only did we fall in love with her displays, but her realization that not everyone can spend $3000 on flowers. She did extremely well to work within our budget, providing lots of expertise and alternatives to our arrangements. She was especially helpful because neither my husband or I knew what to expect with flowers. The only downside I hade with Somerset Hills Florist is that when the bouquets arrived, we had some droopy flowers, no seeing instructions to cut them off if they had dropped because the instructions were written on a card and shoved in one of the bridesmaids arrangements. No one thought to read it until after the wedding. I know Catherine herself was in the building, she just never made it up to my room to explain the information to me. She did, however, speak with my husband, but he of course had not seen the bouquets because they were with me. Honest misunderstanding and it most certainly did not impact my day in any way. I would highly recommend Somerset Hills Florist.

I have nothing but great things to say about this florist. From the minute we walked in I felt welcomed. Cathrine was amazing she took her time with us to find out what we wanted for our special day. If you want great quality and down to earth people I highly recommend this florist. I was even able to book my uplighting through someone they knew. It was great. Planning a wedding is stressful enough and to be able to find a place where you didn't have to worry about a thing was great!!

Catherine at Somerset Hills Florist was a true pleasure to work with for my May 2013 wedding. I was planning a wedding in NJ from DC, and she was very accessible by email and extremely helpful. She also understood my vision and created a sample that we adjusted until it was exactly what I wanted -- the pictures I initially showed her of the arrangements I wanted included flowers only available during the winter, so she advised on a similar look using flowers that looked gorgeous during the time of my wedding. We received so many compliments on our ceremony and reception flowers -- it was truly visually stunning. I thank Catherine and her team for creating the most beautiful backdrop for my wedding! We received so many compliments, and one of my bridesmaids getting married this fall was so inspired by our flowers that she is doing something similar.
