(6/30/2017) Cherie did flowers for my daughter, and now my new Son's, wedding June 24th. Purple was the request from my daughter who lives in Alabama. The arrangements, bouquets and corsages/boutonnieres were absolutely beautiful. now Friday, almost a week later, they are still lovely - and they keep opening up and blooming. Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful and big the floral arrangements were. Cherie is indeed an artist. I know I've ordered flowers from Cherry Blossoms in the past. I know now that all my future floral needs will come from Cherry Blossoms.
Cherry Blossoms made my flowers, especially my bouquet, one of the highlights of my entire ceremony. My bridal bouquet was absolutely gorgeous. My wedding was on a Sunday morning when they are normally closed. And Cherrie (the owner) went out of her way to meet my maid-of-honor at 8:30am Sunday morning so we could pick up our flowers completely fresh and pristine. Thank you, Cherrie, for making my day even more perfect!!
Cherry Blossoms did a fabulous job creating stunning bouquets for myself and my girls and also worked with me to create the perfect centerpieces for my tables. Could not have asked for anything better! I received many compliments on our flowers for the entire wedding. Cherrie has 30 years of experience and it shows in her work!
The moment we walked into Cherry Blossoms for our initial wedding consultation we were impressed by the QUALITY of her flowers and work. Cherrie really took the time to listen to our wedding day flower wishes will provide her expert opinion. We expressed we wanted very full white flowers and lots of greenery and received just that. The budget was discussed right from the beginning and she never once misled us into a higher price point. Everything received on our wedding day, 1 Brides Bouquet, 4 Bridesmaids Bouquets, 1 throw bouquet, 9 corsages, 18 boutonnieres, 15 table centerpieces, 12 ceremony decorations, and two mantle pieces, were in picture perfect condition. She and her two assistants arrived on time and were efficient in placing each piece just as we discussed during our final meeting. The quality in her work still showed 2 weeks later when my husband and I arrived home from our honeymoon and were greeted by family members with some of our remaining wedding day flowers looking beautiful. I absolutely recommend Cherry Blossoms Florist for your wedding day flower needs. She is very artistic so be prepared to discuss the details that you see necessary and she’ll fill in any blanks. Our guests are still talking about her gorgeous work today.
Cherrie and her staff are amazing! Like most brides I was on a tight budget and Cherrie was able to give me the flowers of my dreams. I had stock as one of my types of flowers and it is incredibly water needy but Cherrie made sure that my bouquets would look great all day. I also called her two weeks before my wedding day and requested an additional eight dozen roses in both white and purple. The white roses were no problem but the purple was much more difficult to find but Cherrie came through for me and got me the roses I wanted. Cherrie provides excellent customer service and beautiful flowers that will leave people talking all for an affordable price.
