Surpassed my wildest expectations - seriously!
I was lucky enough to hire Bowerbird to be the florist for my sister's last minute wedding that I planned in 2 weeks. I loved their free-flowing style and wanted some bad ass fall flowers for an outdoor forest wedding. It's tough to find a florist who will work with you on such short notice, and even rarer to find one who - I kid you not - knows what you want more than you do. I sent a few pinterest inspiration pictures, had a phone consult (since I'm not local). Then I find out that my sister likes the style I picked, but wants the flowers to be very colorful (I had previously been thinking blush, burgundy, deep purple, etc.). I was super nervous how it would turn out and was SHOCKED when we picked up the flowers. They were EXACTLY what we wanted. Colorful, wild, but beautiful and tasteful. They set off the intimate wedding ceremony to perfection. Plus Diane and Lily were such a pleasure to work with! Cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 11/06/2019

Flower dream come to life!!
Diane and Lily are truly incredible at what they do! All I gave them was an idea of the vibe of my wedding, and the color palette of my bridesmaid dresses, and they created incredible bouquets and table arrangements to match everything PERFECTLY. I truly cannot speak highly enough of them!! My bridal bouquet was incredible, and they made flower crowns for me and all of my bridesmaids, which were equally incredible. They truly brought all of my flower dreams to life and exceeded every expectation I had.
Working with Diane and Lily throughout the entire process was a complete breeze. They were super responsive, always ready with ideas, and as soon a I met them I basically gave them complete control of the colors/kinds of flowers because you can tell they know exactly what they’re doing. They are both so, so kind and I would absolutely work with them again, and I recommend anyone else to do so, too!Sent on 10/03/2019

Dianne and her team at Bowerbird were fantastic and created the most beautiful floral arrangements at my wedding! Dianne was an absolute pleasure to work with and she skillfully created the bouquets of my dreams! Each arrangement was unique and included the most beautiful touches, incorporating our colors and wedding design. We received so many compliments on both the bouquets and the table arrangements. I can't say enough good things about Bowerbirds and would definitely recommend!Sent on 08/14/2019
