Cherry Hill, NJ
My wedding was at Glen Foerd Mansion in Philadelphia May 09. Darlene and her wonderful company are on this venues preferred vendors list and boy does she earn it! We met with her at her home and reviewed many photos of beautiful flower arrangements. She was kind, thoughtful and most importantly fun to work with! My mother wanted to use a potted plant for the centerpieces ( in order to be more "green" and not waste money on cut/throw out centerpieces). Darlene worked with us to make a beautiful white orchid potted arrangement (which we enjoyed throughout the whole summer when we brought them home).
The blooming branches within large urns with surrounding blue hydrangea was breathtaking!
Precious Petals also provided beautiful seat covers for the chairs in the dining room...(cheaper than the venue itself!..big hit!). Darlene works with your budget and is excited to help you in your wedding floral plans! She was a joy to work with and very professional. It's great to have a relaxed (talking with a friend) feel when making your wedding plans. Thank you Darlene and Precious Petals! Keep up the great work!
First, let me start by saying Bridal Garden is a mid-high end wedding boutique. I understood this when walking through the door. I dealt with Maryellen as my consultant. She is hands down the best! Love her! Down to earth..she does not see you as a dollar sign and does not "blow smoke" about how you look in a dress. She is eager to listen to your idea of style/material etc. for your wedding dress. I went in convinced that I wanted a dress with some sort of strap, she worked with me through the process (which was over an hour - so I was not given a limit). I ended up buying a beautiful...strapless..lace romantic style Rivini gown. The dress was so perfect and it was Maryellen's guidance that brought me to it. She presented me with two dresses that were very similar but in two different price ranges...and allowed myself and my mother to make the final decision..absolutely no pressure was applied. In addition, my 6 bridesmaids bought their dresses here also (we were told from the very beg. that they would not do alterations..and we knew this upfront and made other arrangements.) All orders were in on time and the service was very efficient. I also purchased an unique crystal headpiece on ribbon and wore it instead of a traditional veil. All of these elements created very happy moments on my wedding day...my husband crying when he saw me for the first time...and many many compliments on my dress. Thank you Maryellen...I will never forget your kindness, laughter and help in my big day!
