INFO FOR FLOWERS

Do you offer free or for charge consultations?
Free
Do you provide free or for charge sample arrangements?
For Charge
Do you offer delivery, set up, and breakdown services?
Breakdown, Delivery, Setup
What type of decor (if any) do you offer?
<br /> We have a very extensive line of rental items from Aisle candles, to trellises, to large urns, to many different styles of high and low centerpiece fixtures in different styles. We can show you our line of rentals during your complimentary consultation.
Do you provide non-floral additions to floral arrangements?
<br /> We are open to many "non-floral" type accents especially when going for a particular "thematic" look. We try to STEER CLEAR of gimmicky things and use accent touches with class that don't detract from the flowers. Balloons? probably not.
Do you offer full-services, such as wedding day setup, for an additional fee?
<br /> Yes we do. We do not do a "deliver/drop" kind of service...we offer FULL delivery/ set services. Pinning on corsages/ boutonieres etc...decorating the ceremony and reception sites from start to finish. We make sure EVERY detail is perfect and is as we described in our detailed proposal/contract. We always go over and above what we promise. Ask ANY of our past brides. We have a wonderful support staff that helps us set up our larger weddings and events. We lovingly refer to them as "The Dream Team" and they have EARNED that title! Yes, there is an addtional fee for delivery/set. It is 12% of your flower cost. Our end of night pick up cost varies and is dependent on the amount and complexity of the tear down. Most venues will store rentals until Monday for us to pick up for a very modest fee of $50.
If you have not worked at the ceremony or reception sites previously, would you be willing to visit the sites before the event?
<br /> DEFINITELY!!!! We firmly believe that the visuals of the site and our decor should work together. Site visits are always encouraged and are a part of our services.
Do you offer flower preservation services?
<br /> No, we don't, but we are happy to suggest people who do.
Do you offer any other specializations that have not been covered?
<br /> Yes we do. We frequently are asked to help our brides select linens and other related table setting rentals. We are MOST happy to assist and meet at the rental company of their choosing or suggest one. We do this free of charge as a service to our brides.

LOVED our flowers. They kept our budget low and helped us stretch to get what we wanted.
They did forget our flowers for our wedding cake and told us "we took them off the final proof" which we didn't... but they promptly brought some other flowers for the cake anyway, so that was a save.

Russell is simply AMAZING!! I am a very visual person and when I met with Russell he was explaining the center pieces he was going to make for our wedding day. I couldn't quite picture what it was going to look like so I explained that I was a very visual person and BAM before I knew it in 5 min he had two different center pieces that he was going to place on each table the day of our wedding.

He and Sarah are extremely easy to work with and very quick to respond to any email that you write to them in regards to anything that has to do with your proposal. I also sent a picture of how I wanted to honor my Dad who had passed and they did exactly what I wanted!! He brought tears to my eyes on the day of my wedding! The flowers were amazing and I got nothing but wonderful compliments on them.

I would recommend Russell and his team to anyone!! He is very willing to work with your price range as well - whatever you want he will make it happen!!

I can't thank him enough for making my day that much more perfect with the beautiful arrangements he made!

My husband and I met with Russell a few weeks before our wedding to discuss what it was that we were looking for. We had a terrible time articulating things - or so it seemed to us! - and then Russell described back to us what we had attempted to say using adjectives that were perfect, but that we never figured out on our own. He absolutely understood what we were hoping to accomplish. We left the rest up to him (a leap of faith that was hard for both of us Type Aers...). We got everything we hoped for and more. We had the wedding at our home and Russell sent over flowers the day before that had nothing to do with the wedding day; just a "little something to make your home beautiful" for the day of while I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. The whole team was professional and responsive and flexible. Most important, Russell was able to figure out what we wanted without us knowing what we wanted. Fabulous experience working with Wisteria.

Seriously AMAZING. Russell went above and beyond what we asked of him and our wedding turned out perfect. Months later, all of our guests are still talking about our centerpieces. Russell is so creative and really knows what he is doing so my advice to any bride is to let him work his magic! At my first appointment, I gave him a short description of what we envisioned for our wedding and it was like he read my mind coming up with so many ideas. He is so much fun to work with and is willing to help with anything-he even went to Linen Effects with me to pick out coordinating linens in his free time! It is worth every dime spent and I would recommend him in a heartbeat to any other bride.

If I could have given Wisteria a 10 out of five I would have. Russell is wonderful to work with. His energy and vision helped make the wedding reception a "one-of-a-Kind". He was generous with his time and his talent. I plan on using this florist whenever possible. Don't hesitate to contact him!

Russell and Sarah of Wisteria were my favorite vendors to work with. Russell has an amazing selection of vases and other vessel options to create really beautiful centerpieces right in his studio which sp helpful in the planning process. Russell's consults with me were always very productive and I found I could always trust his ideas and opinions. He is highly creative and really knows how to pick flowers to fit my budget and to last a full day. He is clearly a flower expert. The day of set up was perfect. Wisteria went above and beyond and made my wedding exactly what I had hoped for and more. Thank you, Wisteria!

Russell and his team Sarah and Peter were so much fun to work with. To me the flower planing is a territory that you need to have total trust in the person designing the flowers. I am an Interior Designer so I already had my own very specific ideas. I was helping my daughter plan her wedding and she had a vision she wanted to use feathers. We were not sure because we didn't want it to look like a Vegas Show.Russell was on board immediately! First of all he had the feathers and the gold vases we wanted and immediately had the vision. We also were working with a brand new Venue that we were going to be the first wedding at. Russell went above and beyond and his enthusiasm for our ideas was so reassuring that he would follow through and he did a Fabulous job and it ended up being photographed in MN Bride!
Russell thank you so much !

I loved my flowers! And the reception site looked beautiful with the flowers and candles provided. I had brought some candles for our memorial table and they even helped me place them among the rose petals. The only thing that didn't go as planned was the color of the ribbon used for the flower girl bouquets.
