Cheryl and the team at parkway florist are wonderful to work with. We had our wedding on 9/12/15 at the carnegie museum and our flowers as well as bouquets were absolutely beautiful! The centerpieces were fresh and had just the right amount of color for the venue - in addition Cheryl set up hundreds of tea light candles which really added to the embiance in the music hall. Not only were the flowers great but the price was more reasonable than everywhere else we looked. I would recommend Cheryl and her team to anyone getting married!
Cheryl did the flowers for my wedding party,ceremony and reception. They all were absolutley beautiful, especially my bouquet! I would definately recommend using them for any event. Very organized and on point with everything! Cheryl was awesome to work with and truely made my wedding beautiful!
I ended up wanting to change some of my flowers for the bridesmaids fairly close to the wedding and she had no problem changing it. She also not only delivered everything to our venue but set everything up and stayed for the ceremony. She then did all of the transferring of the flowers from the ceremony outside to inside the ballroom. You can tell she really enjoys what she does, very kind lady.
Cheryl and Parkway Florist was part of our venue's package for centerpieces but we had the option to get the rest of the flowers from another vendor. We did look briefly into other vendors, but the convenience of one location, combined with Cheryl's own flexibility to make the event just like we wanted, and at the budget we were willing to spend, made us happy to stick with them. My fiancee (now wife) came with specific ideas and Cheryl used her know-how to pull it altogether and give us a competitive quote. We tweaked it about a month before the event (as is typical) and Cheryl coordinated with our cake vendor and both the ceremony and reception venue perfectly, so we didn't have to think anything about the flowers.
If there was one 'complaint' was that the bouquet was exceptionally heavy -- you could have killed someone with it! Luckily Cheryl had warned us about this and included a small bouquet for throwing -- which is good because at our reception someone got bonked in the head by the small one (no worse for wear).
I can't say enough good things about Cheryl and her team! I was an out-of-town bride with limited time when I was home for wedding appointments. Cheryl was always so flexible to make sure she was available to meet me. She listened to everything on my wish list, and the final product was even better than anything I could've asked for. From the wedding party flowers, to the church arrangements and reception centerpieces, everything was picture perfect. Not only that, but Cheryl was great to work with. She makes every bride a priority, and is the kindest woman you'll ever meet. If you're a bride-to-be, I wouldn't look any further than Parkway Florist!
Working with Cheryl from Parkway Florist was a great experience! My daughter & I met with Cheryl to discuss wedding flowers for the reception; the flowers were fabulous! Our wedding was held over Mother's Day weekend; I know that Parkway Florist was super busy but they took wonderful care of every detail. The arrangements were fresh flowers; just exactly what we ordered, so beautiful; our guests commented on how beautiful the centerpieces and the special arrangements were. I would recommend Parkway Florists to anyone having an event.
Beautiful white rose centerpieces for our reception. Cheryl and staff are very friendly and professional. Highly recommend. Reasonable prices
So glad to hear that you were pleased with our services. Congratulations again!!
Cheryl is very nice and the flowers were still beautiful, however they were not what I ordered and I was not notified about it. I spoke with Cheryl the week before the wedding to confirm my order and arrange final payment. The day of the wedding I found that the Matron of Honor's flowers looked identical to the bridesmaids flowers, the bridesmaids flowers were supposed to be all white and they arrived with yellow flowers and greenery. The contract even noted that I did not want any greens in any of my flowers. All of my flowers had greenery in them. When I called that morning to complain, Cheryl didn't seem very sympathetic and only said that they were making the flowers late the night before. She had a bit of an attitude as well. She should have checked her order and called me if she was going to be unable to provide the flowers as requested. She did offer a small refund but only on the matron of honors flowers. Very disappointed as Parkway Florist came recommended from a friend.
Our bride is correct. All the attendants bouquets were made the same because the flowers that we ordered for the Maid of Honor's bouquet were suddenly not in prime condition as we began to assemble the bouquets late on Friday night. We did not feel it appropriate to wake our bride at Midnight, so we opted to send a note of explanation with the bouquets. (Delivery location was over 1 hour from our store). The note was apparently not seen by our bride, and she called for an explanation, which we supplied. We did offer a small refund for the color difference on the Maid of Honor's bouquet, as well as an apology for the lack of color difference. I am sorry to hear that apparently that was not enough.
After a huge sticker shock at another florist, we met with Cheryl at Parkway and she was amazing. We told her our modest budget and she made wonderful suggestions that were absolutely perfect. She even spent time doing mock arrangements of our centerpieces before the big day and alerted us when she discovered what we wanted would be potentially dangerous (candles that became too hot). She delivered beautiful, fresh flowers on time and professionally for our wedding. I can't say enough good things about this florist!
Jacki, you were very easy to work with.....and it was fun working with you! I am glad to hear that you were so pleased with everything we provided. Congratulations again!!
Finding vendors was a part of the planning process that stressed me out the most. There are so many options and after awhile everyone's portfolio starts to look the same. For me my next consideration was price, but even then, after you find vendors who fit in your budget it's hard to make a decision.
From our first meeting with Cheryl I knew it was no contest - that I wasn't even interested in interviewing other florists. She is the fairy godmother of wedding flowers. So very kind, with a calming demeanor that instantly puts you at ease.
She was reassuring about every part of the *day of* logistics, and let me tell you, she did not disappoint! Our flowers were beautiful and oh so bridal!
Cheryl even left a hand written note for me the in the bridal suite, and sent a thank you card after the wedding day!
Just as a heads up to all brides, I've found that sometimes vendors aren't super responsive right away via email (which is why I rated a 4 for that category) but I've found that that's the nature of the business given how busy everyone always is!
I HIGHLY recommend Parkway Florist and am so very grateful for Cheryl's warm positivity and remarkable ARTISTRY.
Congratulations, Pittsburgh Bride-to-Be's and trust me when I say you won't regret choosing Parkway Florist to help meet your wedding flower needs!!
Thank you Allison, for allowing us to be part of your Most Important Day. We are very glad that you were pleased with everything floral for your wedding.
Cheryl (the owner) was very involved. SHowed her a picture for bridal bouquet inspiration and that was all it took for her to make it perfectly!
We were a destination wedding so all planning was over the phone and emails. Cheryl was so kind and helpful. She had worked at our venue before and provided a wealth of information and suggestions. Without her it wouldn't have been so perfect. She listened to what we wanted and made our wedding dreams come true. Best service, best princes, best flowers hands down! You can't go wrong with Parkway Florist for you wedding flowers!
Sheryl was great! She listened to my vision .... made suggestions on how to pull it all together --- the result was exactly what I was looking for!
I used Cheryl for my wedding and was very very dissapointed in them. In the beginning she was very helpful and I really thought she captured what I wanted. As time went on she was very irrirtable and very snippy. My flowers were NOTHING like I asked for and was extremely dissapointed when I saw them on my wedding day. Had I known I would have did the boquets myself and save thousands of dollars. My boquest also was just the tips of the roses with plastic stems, I couldn't even save them boquet. She also did not use the leaves I wanted at the bottom of the boquets either and I was very specific about what I wanted. All in all-Cheryl definately knows about flowers and is very educated in the field but I was very dissapointed in the end and would not reccommend her.
My flowers turned out beautiful! They were easy to work with and the cost was great for the gorgeous value!
We got married on a Friday evening at the airport Marriott. There was an accident on the parkway so we didn't have our flowers for pictures but Cheryl made it there for the ceremony! She was great and coordinated the ceremony. I loved my flowers,they were perfect! Cheryl was there all night - even ad I was leaving at 1 am she was there to see if everything was tour satisfaction (our wedding coordinator I didn't even see after the ceremony started!)!!
