I loved working with Carolyn! First of all, she was so responsive each time I contacted her. That is probably the most important thing to me when working with a vendor. Second, she was so sweet and wonderful to work with and talk to. When we met to go over exactly what we wanted for the venue, she listened to everything and made it 100 times better than I thought it could ever be. On the wedding day everything looked AMAZING! The flowers were so beautiful and fresh! I HIGHLY recommend contacting her for your big day!

Planning a wedding from over 1,000 miles away is not something I would wish on anyone. But Carolyn made the process so much easier than it could have been. Through many emails and conversations, she was able to perfectly capture the feel of the day that my husband and I were going for. The only thing we knew we wanted in terms of flowers were daisies. Carolyn created beautiful arrangements with daisies as the focal points and other stunning blooms to accent them. She was also very helpful and accommodating at making sure we stayed within our budget. I can't thank her enough for everything she did for us.

One of the best services she provided was day of coordinator for our ceremony. Without her, our day wouldn't have been as perfect as it was. She made sure everyone was where they needed to be and helped prepare all of the necessary materials. She was our savior!

You can't go wrong if you work with University Florist. You will have a day more perfect and beautiful than you could have ever imagined!

Because of my limited ability to drive, my daughter and I planned her wedding long distance from Richmond via email and phone with Carolyn at University Forist in Lexington, VA. We met with Carolyn once in person before the June 18th scheduled wedding. The ceremony was held in the historic Lee Chapel at Washington and Lee University and the reception was held at VMI's Moody Hall. Carolyn was very familiar with both venues and provided us with invaluable suggestions. On Wedding Day, the flowers were delivered to Lee Chapel precisely when Carolyn promised and they were spectacular; absolutely stunning. Her staff also delivered our centerpieces to Moody Hall and the flowers were gorgeous. I had not seen any of the flowers for the ceremony or the reception before the big day. Because of Carolyn's expertise and being recommended by so many people in Lexington, I trusted her completely. I was not dissapointed. My daughter and I were so happy with everything and were very thankful for University Florist and Carolyn for making this special day beautiful. I would recommend University Florist to anyone planning an event in or near Lexington, VA. Carolyn delivers exactly what she promises and her prices are very reasonable. Mrs. Janet Ford

The flowers at our wedding were everything I could've dreamed of! Carolyn was so wonderful about planning out even the finest details with me so that once the day came, there was ZERO stress on me. She was also very flexible about discussing budget with me, which was so comforting in the wedding business where costs can really add up! The bouquets and floral arrangements were stunningly beautiful. They were everything I could've dreamed of, and working with Carolyn made it an absolute breeze. She was incredibly thoughtful and helpful throughout the process. I HIGHLY recommend University Florist for a job wonderfully and beautifully done!

Working with Carolyn and University Florist was truly a pleasure and a highlight of our wedding planning process. My mom and I met with Carolyn and could immediately sense her passion for her job and her priority of making the visions of her clients come true. Carolyn kept detailed notes on the flowers and decor we were envisioning and kept them up-to-date after each of our conversations. This was extremely helpful since we had our first meeting with her over a year before our wedding! Carolyn was always happy to provide us advice based on her knowledge and experience. She suggested beautiful flower varieties for our color pallette and venue and was more than willing to help create the perfect look with our DIY centerpieces. Carolyn was also super responsive and always responded to my emails within 24 hours. My husband and I were ecstatic to see how stunning our flowers and decor looked on our wedding day. Carolyn and her team hit it out of the park! I know that any bride who works with Carolyn and University Florist will have a wonderful experience!

I cannot say enough about the service at University Florist. I planned my wedding from out of state and Carolyn was just amazing, helpful, flexible, warm and kind; she was a pleasure to work with. I was so undecided on many flower choices and had no idea about wedding flowers but she was patient and helped me throughout the entire process. She was very organized and has an incredible memory for remembering small details. She did all my wedding flowers and they turned out beautifully. She made some additions to my bouquet and it turned out beautiful. She also recommended other vendors in the area since I was unfamiliar with the area and its vendors. I would highly recommend her for any of your events that require flowers. Carolyn thank you for everything! Love, Jeannette and Josh

Carolyn at University Florist is phenomenal. She created beautiful centerpieces and bouquets for our rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, and bridal luncheon. We could not have been more pleased with the way everything turned out. She is a true professional and a great communicator. She truly wants to help make your event the best possible event. She even had a bouquet of flowers waiting in our room upon arrival to Lexington! Thank you a million times!

We worked directly with Carolyn the owner to plan the flowers for our wedding. She was clear from the onset that she wanted our event to reflect our vision and our dream and would do as much or as little as we desired to make that happen within our budget. Working with Carolyn at University Florist in Lexington was one of the best experiences at our wedding. She made many suggestions to help our vision evolve and offered many many items, on loan, to help bring the look we were after come together. Carolyn was always available to meet and discuss new ideas and changes. She worked with us to keep costs low and within our budget. We decided to hire her as our day of director after learning that she had that talent too! So glad we did! The event ran seamlessly from start to finish. I cannot express how much Carolyn did behind the scenes to make our day perfect and as stress free as it could be!

The table decor was ok. The moss provided that I was charged for was unnecessary and did not look good with the plants that I bought and personally delivered to the location. The bridesmaid bouquets were very close to what I wanted. The bridal bouquet was not at all what I had wanted and was not wrapped anywhere close to the way I wanted. Even after providing pictures, the bridal bouquet not being correct was the most disappointing thing about the whole service. The florists were very nice, and offered several ideas about where to buy candles which was helpful. Outside of the actual venue price, I paid the most for this service and liked it the least. Even with me purchasing the isle plants and making the alter decor.

Carolyn was very attentive to me and you could tell in her very first email she loved her job what she did
We had only personal flowers made by University Florist and we were not disappointed. Some of the light pink flowers were a little peach but only I could notice that. I also wanted the flowers early because we did all pictures before the wedding and it was a little hard to convince her that we would take great care of the flowers and they would still look great at the wedding which was a little frustrating but understandable since she loves her job and the flowers are like her babies. I would highly recommend University Florist and plan to if we ever need flowers in Lexington, VA again.
