Diane (from Bowerbird Flowers) was referred to me by a friend. I was looking for someone who would take the time to understand the "feel" I wanted for our wedding, and use her own creativity to create that feel. Diane did all that and more. Our wedding was intended to be informal while celebrating our marriage, our families, our friends, and our farm. We told Diane that we wanted flowers that felt natural to the setting, were local and reflected simple elegance. We asked if my mom could help since growing up my mom was always so good at going out in the woods and coming back with the perfect centerpiece for the table. Diane was gracious, thoughtful and creative every step of the way. She brought the perfect mix of eclectic vases and buckets. We used mason jars for all the tables. She added little white candles throughout. She and her mom spent the morning of our wedding finding all the perfect spots (the dock, the fireplace, the steps, the porch, etc.) to add her charm. She even wrapped the microphone with vines from the woods at the last minute so that it would blend in with the setting for our ceremony. I was thrilled with everything Diane did to make our day feel special and beautiful!

We love Bowerbird!!!!
Diane is hands down the best florist we could have ever hired. I found Bowerbird online and knew just from the pictures that we had to hire them! We went to Diane with just an idea and few a pictures of what we liked and she put together the most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen - I know nothing about flowers and fully trusted Diane with the design. She immediately understood the style and vibe we wanted - her work is impeccable. She also put together the arbor we got married under and OMG I can't even describe how beautiful it was! Diane is seriously one of the nicest people we have ever met and made our wedding everything we ever imagined - we loved her!!

exactly what I wanted
I am obsessed with Bowerbirds Flowers. They were recommended to me by my wedding planner and did not disappoint! Diane is magnificent and talented. I actually know very little about flowers so I couldn't really tell Diane exactly what I wanted. I gave her a picture of my wedding dress, my wedding colors, and a "look" I was going for. She took over from there and created the most amazing bouquets, centerpieces, and decorations. I highly recommend her!
Diane from Bowerbird Flowers is absolutely wonderful to work with, and she creates the most stunning work! Diane has always gone above and beyond what I envisioned, continually producing gorgeous results. From start to finish, she knows her flowers and has extraordinary talent. I love working with Bowerbird Flowers, as I always know I'm going to be blown away by the results. Diane is easy to work with, confident in her skills, extremely talented, and is kind, professional, and fun!
Bowerbird Flowers is one of my favorite florists in the area. Such Stunning work! Highly recommended!
