Beautiful flowers, great service
I had a small, intimate beach wedding on Jekyll Island. I got my beautiful flowers from Cottage Flowers on SSI. I ordered my bouquet, and 2 corsages for my 2 daughters (the flower girls), & also flower petals for their flower girl baskets. I had somewhat of an idea of what I wanted, but Gay made some suggestions & helped me figure it out. It turned out beautifully! The flowers were fresh, gorgeous, and smelled amazing. My bouquet was perfect for my intimate beach wedding. The flower girls corsages were the cutest things I've ever seen, the corsage itself was made from pearls, which we LOVED! :) would definitely recommendSent on 10/28/2020

Fantastic! Very helpful, flowers were gorgeous.
Gay was absolutely wonderful! Our flowers for our wedding were absolutley gorgeous! Even for days afterward!! We got many compliments!! My husband and I were bogged down with planning our entire destination wedding, so I was a bit last minute with updating her about my floral choices, but she was able to help, suggest, and adjust over a simple phone call. She even made a very last minute adjustment and made a floral bouquet for our last minute flower girl. I am so happy we chose her for our wedding!!Sent on 07/09/2020

My husband and I hired Gay for our wedding at Captain's Bluff in St. Simons. Gay was a charm to work with, was extremely creative, helped us stick to our budget, and delivered the most beautiful flowers on our wedding day exactly at the time we wanted her to be there. Everyone was absolutely in love with the greenery on the main farm table (eucalyptus garland), on the wedding arch, on the cake, and throughout my bouquet! I seriously wish I could have kept everything she created forever!! I highly recommend her.Sent on 06/27/2019
