Stunning wedding florals and design!

Jenna and her team at Avant Gardenia created stunning florals that exceeded our expectations. From the gorgeous bouquets and church florals to the exquisite florals and table settings at the reception, AG brought our vision to life. We received so many compliments, including from guests who work in the floral industry. Jenna’s approach is very tasteful and collaborative. We contracted with Jenna about a year before the wedding and details kept shifting due to COVID. Jenna adjusted, suggested enhancements (such as complimentary linens) and then implemented the final design perfectly. We enjoyed the flowers for weeks afterwards as they were so fresh. Every other wedding vendor was also excited by our choice of florist since AG has such a wonderful reputation. Thank you Jenna and team!

Absolutely wonderful!

Jenna was so great to work with! She decorated our reception ballroom tables with beautiful floral arrangements at Hotel Baker and made all of the bouquet arrangements and boutonnières. She ensured that all of the flowers looked lush and beautiful, and came early the morning of the wedding to personally deliver them. She flawlessly executed the vision I had of classic arrangements of white roses and pops of blue (our accent color was a dusty, sky blue). She also decorated our wedding cake with cascading petals and it looked just beautiful. Everyone loved how the flowers looked and the variety of the votive candles and arrangements for the reception. Her services are very affordable and she is very responsive with emails and calls. We highly recommend Avant Gardenia for wedding services!

Absolutely blown away!

Jenna and the team at Avant Gardenia absolutely blew my expectations out of the water! We were referred to them my friends and I am so grateful we took their advice in going with this company. Jenna is incredibly responsive and professional on top of having the most creative mind of anyone I've ever met! I am quite possible the least creative woman alive and she took my vision and made it into reality. Walking into the ceremony and ballroom had me in tears. It was the most magical thing I've ever seen and guests were just as blown away and my husband and I. I already plan on using her for any future events we have! Highly recommend!!!
