Le Mera Gardens
From now on, as soon as any of my friends get engaged I will recommend this florist to them. She provides organic, locally grown flowers in bulk and will work with any budget.
The only catch is that your flowers are limited to what is blooming at the time at her flower farms. About a week before your wedding, you go visit Joan at her farm and browse samples of what's in bloom and make your choices (not as scary as it sounds-- in early July there were DOZENS of types of flowers in all colors). Also, she does provide an idea of what will be available at different times of the year on her website. A few days before your wedding, you pick up your buckets of flowers and can either arrange them yourself or hire another florist to do the arranging.
I wish I could attach a photo of our reception as a testament-- we had a barn virtually exploding with flowers for only $300! She's very sweet and easy to work with, and you can tell she wants you to be happy!
Our customers include florists, designers, special events organizers, wedding parties, bed & breakfast establishments, caterers, medical buildings, supermarkets,restaurants, coffee shops, and charities. Le Mera Gardens is easily accessible on the I-5 corridor.
