This is a long overdue review. We got married August 2011, and chose Flowers underground based on reviews, her location (close to our venue), and her easy communication via email. Danielle was great. The flowers turned out beautiful and she was very creative and willing to work with our vision. I'll try to upload some photos. I can't seem to upload to weddingwire, so I made a yelp review.
The only (small) thing I'd mention was our ivory roses turned out a little more ivory than I wished. I was hoping for almost white. Communication is key. Not her fault.
Our day was perfect and I definitely recommend flowers...
I used Flowers Underground for my daughter’s wedding and it was beyond my wildest expectations. The wedding bouquet was so artistically done and the bridesmaids were ecstatic about the bouquets they were to carry. The reception hall looked like a gym and when Flowers Underground was done with decorating it looked like I spent a million dollars. Reasonably priced, artistic, and dependable, we are so glad we used Flowers Underground. I would totally recommend them and use them in the future.
I have used flowers underground for all of my events and parties, and will continue to. Danielles designs are absolutly amazing, beautiful, and original. Her flowers are always the "awe" of the party, and people continue to comment on them months after. They always go over and beyond to deliver. I highly recommend!
Danielle was amazing! Not only were her flowers goregous and fresh but she knew exactly what i wanted! She was helpfull in everyway possible! She was willing to stay in my budget...which is extremley important, her decorating skills were amazing! Her response time was great, I'd call and she would get back to me asap. I will only use her for floristry from now on! Danielle you truly made our wedding day amazing!! (Wedding date 8/28/10)

Danielle does the most unique arrangments. They are perfect for the theme of the event. I always receive comments from my guests on her work. I wouldn't use anyone else. She's 5 stars all the way.
Flowers Underground always "delivers." Their flowers are beautiful, fresh, and their creations are breathtaking. I have used them and will continue to use them for every shower, party or event that I host. I highly recommend them!!!
If I had to name one of the best vendors I ever worked with, Danielle will be one of the top of the list.
I came into her shop with no real idea of what I wanted, except for my wedding colors. Danielle worked her magic and somehow knew (and I didn't even know) what flower arrangements I would like.
On top of having a great instinct and eye for flowers, Danielle is excellent at working with you. She worked with me on my budget and always managed to overdeliver. She listened to all my comments patiently; not only did she incorporate all I wanted, but she also ALWAYS exceeded my expectations. When the vase rental company delivered the wrong vase sizes, she managed to turn the small snag into an opportunity for a fuller and more beautiful arrangement. When I didn't know what I wanted for my bouquets, she told me that she figured out my taste from my comments. And WOW...I received an equal amount of compliments on my flowers as I did on my dress.
I've worked on various events before and Danielle is by far the BEST there is. You will not be disappointed!
My initial meeting with Danielle was everything I wanted and more. She was very enthusiastic and you can tell she loves what she does. We left the meeting feeling confident and extremely excited. Flowers were something we didn't want to bargain with since this (besides your wedding dress) are the things that appear in almost every wedding photo.
Although, Danielle did an exquisite job and stuck to our contract on many aspects of my floral pieces, there were some areas that disappointed us, making it the most difficult review I've had to write.
- Danielle arrived right on time to deliver and arrange all of our floral pieces.
- The arch decoration was beautiful and added a little extra something to the ceremony backdrop.
- The bridesmaids bouquets were BEAUTIFUL! I loved the colors and arrangements. She even used a damask print fabric to create a "corset" tie-up, which went along with my wedding theme.
- I received many compliments on my centerpieces and she used the same damask corset tie-up on the vases.
- The cake decoration was beautiful and perfect. This was not part of our initial contract...I paid for this service separately.
- My bouquet was the single most important piece to me. As this is probably the most photographed piece, next to my dress. The bouquet had cream, white and variations of pink flowers. The cream and white flowers were browning at the ends and wilting. The flowers were delivered like this and not a result of handling them by us or anyone else at the wedding. I also specifically mentioned I did not want the stems exposed. During our meeting we discussed using a cream-color ribbon to wrap entirely around the stems and then she would create a corset tie-up. What I received was approx. a 2" beaded ribbon wrapped once, at the neck of the bouquet and it stopped about 1/3 of the way down the stems, resulting in exposed stems 2/3 of the way down.
- Another area of disappointement was the lack of flower petals down the aisle. I explained that I wanted heavy petal coverage since my ceremony would be taking place at the end of a concrete slab. Instead, there was only a handful of petals down the aisle. No coverage whatsoever.
After discussing these issues with Danielle, it is my understanding that the flowers were a result of buying from a smaller rose vendor and not her usual vendor. As a result, she mentioned she would not be utilizing them for future events. She also explained the reasoning behind the lack of petal coverage. It had been raining prior to my ceremony and there was talk that my ceremony may be moved inside into our reception area. As a result of this potential move, Danielle decided to place the petals in a basket (which I was unaware existed) so that they could be used indoors. However, the rain stopped immediately after and we proceeded to have it outdoors at the original location - by this time, Danielle had already left the premises and the basket of petals were nowhere to be found. I know Danielle meant well when she decided to place the petals in the basket; however, because of having to rush our ceremony back to its original location (in case it started raining again) I feel Danielle should've stuck to the contract and placed the petals down the aisle. Had the ceremony been moved indoors - I still wouldn't have been able to use the petals since it's carpeted.
In the end, Danielle is an extremely talented florist. I do feel my experience was a one-time thing and future brides should not doubt her reliability. The only suggestion is that you cover everything in the most detail possible and discuss possible problems, such as rain, or any other issues which may impact your event. Additionally, you should go over your contract with the florist and every other vendor at least 2 weeks prior to your event. Make sure you are all on the same page and every single detail is covered so that there are no misunderstandings.
Danielle made my wedding the most special day. Her work is amazing. She was able to take the concept I wanted and turn it into something far greater than I could have ever thought of, and for a great price! Highly recommend.
Danielle did such a good job at our wedding. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I had to book Danielle a week before my wedding date. She was able to capture everything that I originally wanted in a short amount of time and for a reasonable price. I would wholeheartedly recommend her for any event. She has some amazing creations.
I'm surprised by the previous review, I had the best experience with Modern Grace. My husband and I planned on eloping but my future MIL insisted on throwing us some sort of wedding and shower. With literally 1 month to plan and an extremely limited budget, I was sure flowers would be supplied by Trader Joe's. A friend of mine highly recommended Danielle and I'm so glad she did. The flowers transformed the wedding and made my last minute backyard wedding look really elegant. She worked within our budget and offered a lot of advice because I knew nothing about flowers. I just wanted it to look like an overgrown garden. She took that and ran with it. My bouquet was all white with gardenias that she also put in my hair. And she worked for days beforehand in my brother's backyard building a huge garland with flowers and fruit dripping down. My cake decor was the best part, it was so beautiful and lush. I got comments on the flowers for months after that. So many people told me it was the prettiest (floraly) wedding they had been to. My flowers were all fresh, no wilting here. But I was really careful with the bouquet and wedding parties flowers, because they can brown/wilt quickly if you handle them too much.
I couldn't have asked for more beautiful flowers on my wedding day. My bouquet was everything I could have asked for and more!
