When My daughter, Sara, and I first met with Michael, it was easy to recognize the scope of his talents. Sara described the venue, her color preferences and her favorite flower - calla lilies. We left the rest up to Michael's creativity. He far exceeded our expectations. The floral designs were perfect for the venue - he incorporated all of Sara's suggestions and so much more. He designed a canopy for the wedding ceremony that was simple and elegant - exactly what we were looking for. He added special touches to the seating chart and card and gift table to tie them in to the floral designs. We could not have been happier with Michael's designs! In addition, he is extremely easy to work with. I highly recommend Michael and look forward to working with him again in the future.
Such a nice way to start the morning, by reading your review!
Michael was a joy to work with and he was truly able to bring my vision to life in a way that is even more beautiful that I imagined! I picked him as our florist because from our very first meeting he totally understood my vision for a vintage-esque wedding and was very enthusiastic about it. Every florist can basically re-create photos you pull off of pinterest, but what makes Michael special is that he is an artist and can truly bring your vision to life. For example, when it came to specifics, I knew more of what I did not want than what I did want and showed him at least 20 photos of wedding flowers where there were things I liked and didn't like. Michael was able to take all of that and create flower arrangements in my theme that were even more beautiful than I imagined in my mind. Everything on the wedding day was absolutely stunning, from the bouquets to centerpieces and his artistic vision in setting it all up with votives and other touches truly made the reception look magical and something straight out of a bridal magazine.
Also, his prices were very reasonable considering his talent and experience and he was very responsive. We got married at Heinz Chapel and had the reception at Carnegie Museum so it was also extremely helpful that he had been a vendor in both places many times before and knew exactly how everything operated with their rules. In short, you could not ask for a better florist for your wedding day!!
It was also a joy working with you and your mother. Her smile that evening was priceless!
Our family has been so fortunate to know Michael for a very, very long time! In fact, he was my mother's florist for her wedding nearly 30 years ago! Michael and my mother actually designed the entire wedding as a surprise for my husband and I (which was great for a bride's stress level!), and Michael was amazing. Even though many of the elements were a surprise for me, Michael involved me along the way; I showed him a few pictures of bouquets that I liked as well as images that depicted the color scheme we wanted for the wedding. On the day of my wedding, less than an hour before I walked down the aisle, I finally saw all of our flowers and they were PERFECT. Seriously, perfect. The colors were exactly what I had in mind and the bouquet style was beautiful - not too over-the-top, but unique and memorable. The bridesmaid flowers and nosegays for both mothers were exactly what I had envisioned as well. Once we got the reception, I was truthfully awed. The centerpieces were stunning - tall, short, full, and varied in every way that a true professional knows how to do. There were even touches of Michael's magic around the room in unexpected places, like on the cake table. I did not expect them to be there, but they added to the romantic vintage vibe we wanted to achieve that evening. Michael is truly a master of transforming a plain space into the perfect setting, no matter the theme. He listens and really does his best to bring his clients' visions to life (and then some!). I could not have imagined any other florist designing our wedding :)
Well Abbe', what can I say? That review brought tears to my eyes. Doing your flowers with your mom was such an act of love. Although, I certainly felt old watching you walk down the aisle and remembering you asking me as an quiet 8 year old to do your flowers one day!
Michael really took the time to understand our style and unique vision we had for our wedding. He created the most beautiful bridal bouquet for me, which was exactly what I had envisioned. He made our reception hall at the Warhol museum breathtakingly beautiful by adding the right amount of glam and romance with the table centerpieces and candles. So pleasant and professional to work with! I would highly recommend Michael for your special day!!!
Thanks Melinda! Enjoyed working with you and Lydia!
Michael is a true talent. I had a vision of what I wanted my wedding reception to look like when I initially met with Michael, but I wasn't 100% sure about anything. He took my thoughts and ran with it and completely floored me with the centerpieces for my wedding. They were beyond beautiful! He really got what I was going for and you could tell that he took the time to make my vision perfect. He did a sample centerpiece for me a few weeks before the wedding, which was great, but he made the day-of centerpieces even prettier! He was always responsive to calls and e-mails and very accommodating to changes and additions, even close to the wedding date. He made my wedding dreams come to life! I couldn't be happier with my flowers!
I had the opportunity to work with Michael for my wedding day. The flowers were gorgeous and Michael was able to take my vision of what I wanted for my big day and bring it to life. I received so many compliments on the reception centerpieces because of how pretty the flowers were and the attention to detail. Michael is also very easy to work with and he is always looking out for the customer which is great. Michael also did the flowers for my brother's wedding and my sister's wedding. I would highly recommend Michael!
I found Michael through the Knot after unexpectedly changing my florist for my wedding. Michael was more than wonderful. He sat down at our first meeting with my mom and I, listened to what we both had to say, and brought it all together and made the flowers look beautiful. Anytime I needed to talk to Michael, he always got back to me in a timely fashion. I gave him all the information he needed and he was more than happy with pictures of our dresses. I would recommend Michael to anyone I know getting married. Thanks a lot, Michael!
Michael is amazing. The flowers were beautiful and he is very honest with how he feels about your ideas, and gives advice as to what would look best. He is very flexible in regards to last minute problems that may come up. I had a wonderful experience and hope the same for other brides!
Michael at Blooms was very professional and delivered exactly what our daughter wanted on her wedding day. He is a thoughtful talented florist.
The flowers were beautiful. Everybody loved them
It was such a pleasure to have Michael as the florist for our wedding. Not only did he strive to provide exactly what I asked for, but he exceeded my expectations. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and so much more than I ever imagined. His kind demeanor and professionalism made him a pleasure to work with.
I enjoyed working both of you and was so great flu for your trust!
Michael was wonderful to work with for our wedding!!! He is very creative and talented, and turned my vision into reality!!!!! He looks at the whole picture rather than just one part of it.
Michael was wonderful to work with and the flowers and decor were high quality and absolutely gorgeous!
Michael did a fabulous job with all floral arrangements, center pieces were stunning, flowers on the cake absolutely beautiful. The bride and bridesmaid bouquets looked lovely in pictures.
Michael did an amazing job .... and I expected nothing else!! My bouquets of peonies and ranniculus and roses were just as I had envisioned! I could not have asked for anything more perfect for my day.
I just had my wedding, and I have to say, Michael was absolutely phenomenal in all sense of the word. From day 1, he was open and eager to do whatever I imagined for my wedding day. He was always available to talk to, and no matter how and when I decided to change something, he was willing to do whatever I wanted to his best ability. And his ability to create superb arrangements is incredible. The hardest part as a bride is to have an image in your head come to real life. The day of my wedding, that's exactly what he did. You could tell he put all of his heart and soul into his work. On top of all this, Michael is a wonderful person. And that's all anyone could ask for when working with somebody. From his unique outlook on flowers and dedication to his work, to his warm, loving personality, I highly recommend any bride to use Blooms.
What in the world do a say after reading that? It makes all of these 30 years of touching so many lives with flowers, so worth it. Diana, you and I connected at so many levels that providing your dream wedding was an act of love, obsession and a overall respect for you, Mike and your family's integrity. Stay in touch!
