Jim and his team did it again! I am very familiar with their work and they did such a wonderful job with my flowers for my wedding. I asked him to make me a brooch and flower bouquet and it turned out even better then I could have imagined. The flowers were gorgeous and of course smelled heavenly. I love city florist and will keep using them in the future. I highly recommend them to anyone that needs flowers.

The most beautiful flower arrangements my family or I have ever seen! I contacted Jim for my wedding flowers by recommendation of Molly Taylor at the Hyatt Chesapeake Bay Resort. Jim was responsive, professional and excited to work with me. The pricing was more than fair and when I met with him before the wedding to put together some samples he was on point with what I wanted. I left our meeting very excited but relaxed because I could tell we were in good, capable hands. On our wedding day, I was stunned when I saw the flowers for the first time. It was like he took my wishes and turned them into a masterpiece! They were WAY more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! They were the most lush, fresh, carefully arranged flowers I have ever laid my eyes on and they were for MY wedding! It was simply amazing. From the bouquets to the vases on shepherd hooks for the ceremony, and the centerpieces, it was all so beautiful and matched our color scheme perfectly. When I look at our pictures, I can't help but feel an infinite amount of gratitude for Jim and his crew at The City Florist! Thank you all for decorating my wedding and making it simply stunning!

We loved our flowers! Got so many compliments on them, many folks said they were the best wedding flowers they had ever seen. They were fresh and beautiful. We met with Jim once in person and he showed us some sample centerpieces and bouquets -- and some other options for our ceremony. He was familiar with our venue which was a plus.

Jim was so easy to work with and understood our vision. Our flowers were bright and beautiful - and our centerpieces were unique. I only wish we could have enjoyed our flowers for longer!

Jim also did our chuppah (with flowers) and uplighting in the ballroom. All worth the money!

Jim Gray is the best florist on the Eastern Shore. That being said, there was definitely some downsides to working with them. He did very well with capturing the overall feel that I was going for with the wedding flowers! The centerpieces on the tables were stunning. All table flower arrangements were beautiful. The hand-held flowers, not so much. I only had a handful of things that I was firm on: No purples (I didn’t like the way the color went with our wedding colors), No daisies (I hate them), and a sold neutral color for the bridesmaid bouquets (they had bright multicolor dresses and I didn’t want any clashing). So…most bouquets had purple and it was the main accent color in the bride’s bouquet. An entire arrangement for the church was made of daisies (one that was supposed to be entirely made of greenery branches), and the bridesmaid bouquets were bright and multi-colored. With everything else being so beautiful it is hard to complain, but when you are dropping $4000 on flowers, you expect the few requests you do make to be honored. It was very frustrating. The bridesmaids’ bouquets were so bad that I wanted to scramble and cut flowers from the garden for the bridesmaids to carry instead, but we ran out of time to get it done. Pew markers were also put in the wrong places so there wasn't much room for the parents to sit. So my review is this…..If you just have a general idea of what you want and are willing to leave everything in their hands, you will be happy with 90% of what The City Florist comes up with. But if you have any special requests or want any input on color or flower type, you might want to look elsewhere. Also, they are awful at answering emails and getting back to you. Overall I am relatively satisfied with my experience.

I used this vedor for my ceremony. The bouquets were beautiful and the alter piece was nice. However I did not get my staircase drapped in lines instead they used Tulle and they did not provide me with my center piece for my foyer table. They were not very customer friendly with answering emails. Requested 1000.00 deposit before any work was done and that was just to hold a date. Beautiful work with terrible customer relations skills. They did not try to contact me until 2 weeks before my wedding to discuss my reception pieces and that was only because I called them. If your spending your money with a vendor communication is key. Over priced and not very friendly. If you are a bride and its your day you do want someone who will talk to you once you have written the check.

Jim at City Florist did amazing things with the florals/lighting/general decor of our wedding. He may not always get back to you same day via email, but there is nothing to worry about - he is on top of it and will create amazing things with the budget you give him. I'm so glad we worked with City Florist and would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

Jim at The City Florist came recommended by my wedding coordinator. We met at the shop with Jim, and as I talked, he listened to what I was looking for, and then described some of his ideas to me. It was as if he picked the images right out of my head! He whisked away for a moment, bringing back samples of flowers which he assembled into a gorgeous little bouquet right before my eyes! I knew my floral arrangements were in very good hands. Day of, he came out to my venue to deliver the flowers and set up, including some extra lighting for the barn my reception was to be held in. When my and my bridesmaids' flowers arrived, I had an idea but didn't know precisely what they would look like, and receiving that delivery was like Christmas! They quite honestly took my breath away. The men's boutonnieres were EXACTLY what I had asked for. I was so happy and would definitely recommend this florist!!

City Florist was recommended by our caterer, Blue Moon, because we wanted a very elegant garden theme, but I also really wanted chandeliers in the reception tent, and Jim could provide both of those services. He worked with all of my requests to create beautiful settings at the ceremony and reception. He responded to all of my email modifications of the proposal and budget, so that I could decide what was most important, and we got glowing compliments on everything (bouquets, ceremony urns/garland, ferns in the aisle, centerpieces, and most definitely the chandeliers). We did have a minor issue with one meeting, but we were able to visit the Evolution Brewery instead since we were traveling from an hour out of town. But even with that miscommunication, the outcome of working with City Florist as a wedding florist was absolutely worth it.

Jim, Mallory and the team did a fantastic job with our venue. My wedding was a few weeks ago and they transformed our venue beautifully. The centerpieces turned out better than I could have imagined. The flowers for the wedding party were beautiful, as well. Mallory was great to work with and stayed on top of the details, she even gave me a call a few weeks before the wedding to let me know the flowers for my bouquet I originally wanted weren't blooming very well because they were out of season. She and the team worked with me to find other flowers that turned out to be even more beautiful than the flowers I originally wanted. They were very flexible and worked with my schedule since I was planning the wedding from out of town. They did multiple proposals for me and really worked with our budget. I would definitely recommend working with them. They were very professional and friendly throughout the whole process.

VERY hard to get a hold of. I was given a very vague proposal based on a detailed conversation we had. I tried to schedule a final meeting to make sure we were actually on the same page, and was told they were too busy. (I was long distance so my time frame for meeting was limited.) I should have insisted on it, because I was VERY VERY disappointed on the day of the wedding. (Flowers were sparse and looked cheap, and they weren't!)

They were very flexible in terms of any changes we needed or wanted to make. Mallory made some wonderful suggestions about lighting and types of flowers that just proved stunning in the venue. Even the venue was impressed! Don't be foled by their "store front" which is older.....they are in the business of event planning and do a fantastic job!

I let him and my mom go from there and when I walked into the room on the day of the wedding, my mouth dropped. It was more beautiful than I could have imagined and it was so different than anything I'd ever seen before. It was so representative of me and my husband...I loved it!

I mostly worked with Mallory and she was great. My mom and I met with her and she was able to take our ideas and run with them. I absolutely loved my bouquet and all the bridesmaids bouquets. I got so many compliments on how beautiful the flowers were.
I do have a couple complaints though. I had discussed with Mallory about using hanging baskets for the ceremony and using clear stones for our centerpieces. Instead, she gave us regular flat baskets and brown stones. Luckily, some of my bridesmaides were able to play around with the flowers in the baskets, so they didn't look that bad; just not what I had asked for. Overall though, the team at City Florist are very creative and great to work with.

Jim and his team were really great! From the very beginning they worked with our wedding coordinator to stay within our budget, and yet give us the look and idea that we were going for. He did mostly exactly what we asked for. There were only a few things that were a bit off and not exactly what I wanted, but for the most part, everything turned out beautifully and he really helped to make it happen.

His team stayed on site to set-up, and even help my wedding cordinator where she needed help or extra hands. They showed up the next day to take everything down.

They did great with setting up our draping for our altar, and even the lighting. Jim's team can truly do it all! And what they can't do, he'll find someone who will in your budget. This was one of the few vendors in which I could completely trust! He was amazing, and I would work with him again in the future! =D

This was one of the few vendors in which I could completely trust! He was amazing, and I would work with him again in the future! =D Read less

Our flowers turned out absolutely beautiful and were exactly what we wanted. Our initial meeting Jim was fantastic, he special ordered in the flowers I was looking for just to show me a few ideas.

The time in between that initial meeting and the wedding was sometimes a rocky road though. There were multiple times I emailed Jim (this is how we had been communicating and I was in a different time zone) three times over a few week span about the same issue with no response. I finally had to call the shop, but then they couldn't do anything for me because Jim had my proposal on his personal computer so I had to wait again for him to get back to me.

Also I called to confirm our delivery time a few weeks away from the wedding and we decided on 12:00pm, however the flowers weren't delivered until an hour late the day of the wedding.

Overall I thought our flowers were fantastic, but be prepared for a little bit of stress associated with not being able to get in touch.

Our flowers were absolutely amazing! Every person at the wedding and reception commented on how beautiful the flowers were. I could not have asked for more. I gave Jim from City Florist some ideas of what I liked and pictures of the wedding dress and wedding party attire and let him put his own touches on the flowers and he really did an outstanding job. We will definitely reccomend City Florist to everyone and we will be using them again!

As soon as I met with Jim I knew I wanted him to be my florist. He is more than that. He helped me envision ceremony & table decor and made the vision come true. He provides way more than just flowers! We have worked with Jim and his team at many other events as well and his work is always superb! I would never pick any other florist for an event other than Jim!

Jim and Mallory created a beautiful scene for my wedding at Lighthouse Sound. I planned my wedding from afar and so only got to meet with them a few times, but the final product came out better than I had imagined. Jim worked with my budget and actually made the less expensive centerpiece more beautiful than the more expensive option would have looked. Everyone at the wedding commented on how striking the flowers and decor were.

I did struggle a bit with communication -- it took a few weeks to get an initial proposal and it sometimes took a few days (or even weeks on one occasion) to hear back from Jim, which was frustrating. I am not sure if this is normal though -- perhaps florists only focus on the details a few weeks out, and it certainly didn't help that I lived 250 miles away. Still, if there's one thing I'd improve upon, it's the speed of response from City Florist, even if it's just a "got your email, working on it". I also wasn't entirely clear on his vision because I never got some pictures that were promised of our centerpiece (again, living far away didn't help) and so I basically had to wait until our wedding day to see what the table arrangement looked like. Again, it was simply stunning -- no one on the Eastern Shore could have done a better job. It just required me to have a lot of faith in his vision!

The City Florsit (Jim Gray) is by far the best florist that we were fortunate enough to have meet and used. He had been to Hertiage Shores and knew what type of look we were looking for. We had already bought glass cylinders and lights. He knew how to make them look beyond words can say. We had lighted drapery behind the head tables and it looked stunning. He even did lighted drapery over top the dance floor as well! He has a creativity that is unbelievable. People at our daughter's wedding we just blown away. The exact words used was "This Is Something You See In A New York Wedding). People at the Hertiage Shores said it was the prettiest wedding that they had ever seen. We are just so happy that we meet and had The City Florist! His staff is just wonderful to work with as well. The are all super nice to work with and treat you as though this is their daughter's wedding as well. They are the best anywhere!

Jim Gray with City Florist was AMAZING! I was completely satisfied with his designs and vision for my Hawaiian wedding day. He also agreed to work along side with a florist I found in Hawaii that handmade all my leis for that special day. I want to thank Jim from the bottom of my heart for making my wedding day the most beautiful day of my life. Aloha Jim from Charlie and Beth Kistler!

I've always known that City Florist is an amazing florist and I was so excited when Jim said he would travel to NC for our special day! They are so much more than just a florist. They are the complete event design team. When I met with Jim, I walked in with 3 strips of ribbons and he created every detail just based on that. City Florist is great, you will not be disappointed!!!

Jim at The City Florist was a great guy to work with. He and my mom hit it off immediately. Because I don't know my way around a flower shop, my mom mostly worked with him. However, I was able to tell him what I liked or did not like from the samples and he came up with beautiful bouquets. The most amazing being mine (obviously) but also my hair piece. I did not know exactly what I wanted but he took my thoughts and made it stunning.

There were one or two points where it took a few days for him to respond but when he did it was always with my interest in mind.

He was also very good about working within our budget and reusing flowers where we could. I would definitely recommend him for Eastern Shore brides.

Jim Gray at City Florist was so great! Our first meeting with him, I brought a purse full of magazine clippings and ideas. He immediately picked up on what I was going for and elaborated to include things I never would have dreamed of. He is experienced with many of the local vendors (ceremony/reception site, baker) and so was able to work effectively with them to figure out timing, quantity, etc. Very professional and an amazing artist...way beyond just flowers!
