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.

Although we didn't get all of our flowers from here due to price, the process was incredibly easy and Carolyn took care of so much set-up and clean up! And, the flowers were beautiful.

I give lots of credit to Carolyn to keeping me sane in the weeks leading up to my wedding! She was so accommodating and responsive and just so wonderful to work with. I only had a vague idea of what I thought I wanted, but she made it turn out beautifully. She is extremely thoughtful and helpful with all of the little details! I was so pleased with how all of the flowers for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding came out. She even donated them the day after, which I really appreciated as well (I hate having so much beauty go to waste!!!) She is tireless and dogged to make sure that everyone she works with has a wonderful wedding day--thanks so much Carolyn!

Carolyn went above and beyond in putting together the wedding for us! She was our coordinator as well as the florist, and she helped us put together a wedding that was so personal and beautiful. We went in only vaguely knowing what we wanted, but she led us through all of the decisions without ever being pushy. She really listened to us and helped us make a day that felt exactly like us, but that we could never have done without her. Plus the flowers were so beautiful I heard guests gasp when they walked into the room!

This florist did my daughters wedding flowers on December of 2013 and they were incredible. When they were delivered they even took the time to show us how to care for them prior to leaving the church. They asked if there were any items that they could even take to the church for us prior to their department. A fantastic job.

Carolyn and the whole crew at University Florist really took the nerves and hassle out of wedding planning. I must have changed my mind a zillion times about all of the details, but Carolyn kept track of every change and never made me feel like I was out of my mind. :) She coordinated with all of the local vendors to ensure that everything went off seamlessly - AND, the flowers were amazing! All of our guests commented on how gorgeous the flowers were and how beautiful the venue was decorated! Thank you, Carolyn and University Florist!

I loved how our flowers turned out! Our guests did too, as we received lots of compliments! Carolyn was great about creating my vision. I sent her a few pictures of bouquets and arrangements I liked, emphasizing I loved textured looks, and she was able to bring it to a reality perfectly! The pricing was very reasonable and she was really flexible about things I wanted (using my own container for our ceremony arrangement, wrapping my bouquet in lace from my mother's wedding dress, etc.) And they were delivered right when we expected them to arrive at the venue!

Picking University Florist to do the flowers for our wedding was such an easy decision for us. Going for our first consultation, Caroline read my mind and had the exact vision of what I wanted. She could practically finish my thoughts of what I was trying to tell her I wanted and was able to put it all together for me. We were very satisfied with all of our flowers that we ordered and I thought the pricing was very reasonable as well.

Carolyn Tolley was a great choice for Flowers and for wedding coordinating!! She was very knowledgeable about what she does. She was flexible in her meeting times, in her services, and in her accommodations. She went above and beyond the call of duty to help me, the client, out. She knows flowers so well! She was able to suggest alternatives for things that I couldn't get due to out of season, or because they don't hold up well in certain situations; and she was able to get things I really wanted regardless of the aforementioned if it was what my little heart desired. She is very well known in the location I chose (Lexington, VA) and is very trusted by all other vendors and local people that I dealt with for planning. She was able to help in more ways than just flowers! Carolyn really went above and beyond to help make our special day, everything that I envisioned.

In addition for flowers, she offers coordinating. We booked her because she was so knowledgeable, because I was planning a wedding from a distance of an hour away, and because she knew the ins and outs, the local people, could help get me into the places I needed after hours, and help with the final things after it was all over. She was a life saver! She really went above and beyond, and everything ran so smoothly, without a hitch. I had compliments on the coordinator as well. I highly recommend her and her services as florist, or coordinator, or both! She also has many things that were decorations/signs/etc that were used by other brides and then donated to her after use, that she was willing to let us use. All these things really helped out! The day was perfect, and this is largely in part to her services and beautiful flowers! :)

I hate writing reviews that aren't fantastic but here goes. The flowers for my wedding weren't perfect by any means. The bouquets were beautiful but the ribbon was the wrong color. (white when I asked for brown) The short centerpieces were pretty but didn't look correct. The tall ones were horrible. They looked small and NOTHING like the example she did. I was highly disappointed. Getting in touch with her was difficult as well. Emails would take forever to be returned and calls were near impossible. Carolyn is very scatter brained and makes you feel like your wedding isn't important. Prices would randomly change and she'd complain how she had all these other weddings to do. She didn't even show up on my day to do the set up. Someone else did and with what seems like her daughter. The lady and girl who set everything up did great and made sure everything was perfect. I just wish the tall centerpieces were right. Everything else was great though.
