Avante Gardens Florist
We worked with Cathy on a recommendation. At first I was hesitant about having flowers at all due to the costs of something that wouldn't last more than a day but in the end it was worth it.
Cathy mocked up some table centerpieces using our elegant vinage theme as a spring board. They were unique! So creative and very different from what I've seen before. She used beads in glass jars, large green leaves to wrap around inside and a mix of white, cream, and green flowers with peacock feathers for some flare.
Our bouquets were full and expressive. The boutonnieres were simple and elegant but masculine with a peacock feather and a simple white rose.
The flowers really brought everything together without being over the top or too much. They were simple and stunning! We loved them and were very very happy with Cathy's work. Her creativity knows no boundaries and what she made for us really brought together everything...
When it came to our wedding flowers, I did not have a very clear vision of what I wanted, so I am particularly grateful for Kathy and her team at Avante Gardens! Not only were they professional, flexible, affordable, and friendly, but they are true artists who were able to take my few simple ideas and create something so incredible that I couldn't have even imagined it all. Throughout the whole process, Kathy's priority was to make sure that I was happy with the process and the product, and I can honestly say that I couldn't be happier. Not only was the planning pleasant, but Kathy went above and beyond on our wedding day to make sure that the flowers were transported with care, set up perfectly, and all around flawless. Her work truly transformed our ballroom, and I proudly recommend Avante Gardens for any of your floral needs...especially your wedding!
Great and beautiful work, Totally professional, Easy to work with, Great artistic qualities! Beautiful arrangements!
I love, love, love, love, loved our wedding florist, whom I met on Twitter, the year before. Her work was always gorgeous at the events I attended, but working with her for our wedding, was even better. I adored the flower scheme she created so much, that I didn't have "wedding colors." When people asked the "color" question, I simply told them about our flowers, because they are what I designed our entire wedding around. The flowers reflected a fresh, contemporary take on the autumn color palette. We incorporated them at the chapel (Crossline Lakeside Prayer Chapel), with our bridal party, with our cake, and of course, centerpieces at the reception (at the Dove Canyon Country Club). Cathy even helped us create a special arrangement for our Memory Table, tastefully incorporating butterflies, a special creature between my grandmother and I. She created the most stunning Bridal Bouquet, incorporating Swarovski Crystal flowers and a Tiffany's locket, with a vintage picture of my Gram. I cannot say enough good things about Cathy, but my final comment is on the three-in-one bouquet she made for the bouquet toss - it was a terrific surprise for everyone, and a big hit. I highly, highly recommend Cathy's shoppe. If you're lucky enough to snag a spot working with her, you will be truly blessed. Enjoy.
I would highly recommend Avante Gardens to anyone for any event. Rick and his staff are very helpful and friendly. They took the time up front to work with me to figure out what I wanted and what would work with in our budget. I loved that there was no pressure they would honestly do the best they could with in your budget, no over selling you on things you do not need or pushing you over your budget. Their flowers are unbelievable. I still can't believe how beautiful all of the flowers came out and my bouquet was so perfect I almost thought it was not real. I highly recommend that if you are looking for a florist that you meet with them you will be convinced yourself and they will not disappoint.
