Jim and his team at The City Florist did an AMAZING job for our wedding! The flowers we saw when meeting with him a few months before the wedding were gorgeous, and his additions for our ceremony and reception were absolutely gorgeous. He also added some special touches at the last minute, including leaving up string lights that another customer had used, helped to make our ceremony look perfect. I would gladly recommend Jim and The City Florist to anyone looking for wonderful arrangements, particularly at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay. They are very well versed in decorating their venues and know how to make any wedding stunning. Thank you, thank you!

My wedding was yesterday and Jim, The City Florist did a spectacular job! My husband and I are so grateful that we were able to capture his work with a videographer and photographer! I created a Pinterest board and sent photos of images that included the types of flowers that I wanted him to work with. He well-executed my vision of a classy, wildflower bouquet that reminded me of something that was handpicked from a garden. Everything from the colors to the textures of the flowers were exactly how I described to Jim! I wanted to go with peach and soft yellows, the tables looked gorgeous, loved the summer colors! Jim is such a creative florist, he has amazing vision! I'm amazed at how well he was able to work with our limited budget. He performed 5 star work! He's a one man band most days, so every now and then it may be hard to reach him during the wedding season--but, he did get right back to me when I reached out by phone/e-mail within a day or so. When I was anxious and very stressed about everything--he reassured me that we would have a beautiful wedding day with amazing flowers! I'm very thankful that everything looked so great and he creatively executed the vision that I had and ran with it! I highly recommend The City Florist.

Jim was amazing!! We were recommended him by the Ocean Pines Yacht Club where we got married as he does beautiful draping with chandeliers. We received a quote for the draping and decided to also have Jim do all the flowers. He was so easy to work with. I enjoyed every meeting we had. He was always interested in my vision with perfect suggestions to go with. Everything turned out beyond perfect. I didn't have to worry about anything with Jim which is such a great feeling when trying to plan a wedding. Thank you so much Jim! I can't recommend him enough!

We loved working with Jim Gray at The City Florist. He is an artist, and completely read my mind on how I wanted the reception to look and feel. Beautiful job!

AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Jim is a flower genius! For our wedding we wanted a more unique textural garden-ish look and he took the theme and went with it! My mother does flower arranging and had a hard time giving up the reigns for flowers especially because she has wholesale connections. However, the day of the wedding, even she admitted that she never could have created the absolutely beautiful arrangements Jim was able to. They were beyond stunning! He even utilized fabric we had used throughout the reception! Jim, we beyond appreciate everything you did for our wedding! He truly created a dream venue scene!

I hesitate to write this review…. I contacted city florist months before my August wedding. I had my heart set on peonies. In our consultation I let one of Jim's employees know that I wanted to have peonies, that I was aware they were out of season in August, but I did not care how much it would cost. I was ASSURED that I would have those flowers in my bridal bouquet. However, I was emailed FOUR DAYS before my wedding! Four days! Via email! I was notified that I would not be getting peonies because they were out of season….. I was heat broken. It may be dramatic, but I cried for those four days leading up to my wedding. I was assured again that they would make some other flower choices that would be comparable… ON my wedding day, they delivered the flowers WITHOUT NOTIFYING ANYONE. They left them on the table in boxes…. They were hideous… I had my wedding coordinator call them. I was willing to pay anything for them to bring more pink roses to make the bouquet fuller and to take out the grey/green LEAVES that filled the bouquet. However, they did not answer their phones or emails… I had to have my bridesmaid run out to the store, only hours before the wedding, to buy gems to place throughout the bouquet. I paid hundreds of dollars on these flowers, yet I had to go to the store to make them acceptable. I had a panic attack on my wedding day because of this vendor. I would not recommend them. It was the lowest point of the day. I may have been dramatic that day from the stress, but even looking back now, two months later, I am so disappointed in the product they gave me. I wish I could post a picture here of how ugly they were. The roses weren't even opened and no one took the time to look at them. Save yourself the heartbreak, and go with another florist ladies.

The City Florist responded with the following comments:

Lindsay, I am so sorry that you disliked the flowers. this is the first I have heard of your thoughts.

from the very first of your proposals, it never had peonies listed,
it always had roses, garden roses, roses and soft peach roses,
the girls initially had blue hydrangea, coral roses, hot pink spray roses

due to the budget restraints we had to fine tune those choices

we had to pull out the garden roses, they are more costly, and we
also had to fine tune the girls flowers, to white stock, aqua melon
gerber daisy, with dusty miller around the base,
I thought they were lovely and still do like the combinations,

I am sorry that you were not happy, but I find the criticism to be unfair
and unfounded
i'd be more than happy to sit with you and your mom to discuss

My venue did most of the communication with the City Florist for my pinspotting so I didn't have the pleasure of dealing with them too much. However, the pinspots were amazing and really accented the centerpieces perfectly! Very please with this vendor!

If you want amazing decorations / florals / lighting and need someone you can trust... go with The City Florist.

I had an Indian wedding but didn't want to have very traditional decorations. I was told by my venue to contact The City Florist and I couldn't have been happier. I was able to give Jim loads of information of what I was looking for (and some was very random) and he gave me more than I could dream of. I wanted trees indoors for my reception, he gave me trees indoors. I wanted to have a rustic Indian ceremony, he gave me a rustic Indian ceremony. My bouquet was unique color and beautiful and the center pieces for my reception were unique and fun and fit my personality as well as my vision for my reception.

Without Jim / The City Florist, I probably would have been completely anxious the entire day of my wedding and wondering if my decorations came out at all. With the City Florist, I was able to let go and know that everything would go as planned.

Indian Brides.... check out The City Florist. They created one of the most beautiful Indian weddings for me and I know they can do the same for you.

Where do I even begin on complimenting and recommending Jim's work?! From our first meeting to the finished product at the wedding, I have been blown away. Jim is someone who I was able to trust immediately and he simply does the best work in the area. I would ask him for something and he would exceed my expectations. He does so much more than flower arrangements too. He built gorgeous draping with lights on the ceiling of our venue. Literally every person commented on it to me. Jim was always on time and provided recommendations whenever I asked him to. I know when I was looking, it was hard to tell what feedback would be relevant to what I cared about or meet my level of expectations. I can tell you, this florist will not disappoint. Jim provided suggestions that truly made a different to the decorations of the wedding. I'm so thankful for what he did to make my special day so perfect!
