My husband and I used Doris for our wedding on 11/17/17. Words can not describe how beautiful her work is. I had went for a sample day and saw what my centerpieces would look like and was blown away. I thought it couldn't get any better until I saw the centerpieces and bouquets the day of. Everything looked amazing!! Its not only her work that is amazing.. she is a pleasure to deal with. Picking out flowers can be very overwhelming and when I met with her she made the process easy and there was no pressure from her to add more or change what I wanted.. Thank you Doris for help making my wedding so beautiful with your gorgeous work:)

Look No Further!!
My wife and I hit the absolute jackpot when it came to crossing paths with Doris and her team. We live in NYC and Doris was always beyond accommodating with our schedule and squeezing us in whenever we were able to make the trip in. When we originally met, it was as if Doris was reading our minds! We went in with only a budget (that Doris worked with) and the colors our bridal party was wearing- we aren’t too knowledgeable on flowers but we were able to show some arrangements we liked online, and Doris and her team COMPLETELY surpassed them.
All of the flowers were delivered at exactly the time we were told they would be, and each item was marked with who it belonged to. Totally organized and everything was beyond stunning.
When we saw the Chuppah we rented from Doris and the way it was decorated, it truly took our breath away. Again, beyond any expectation we had.
Doris also added some amazing candles to our centerpieces that truly tied everything together that we hadn’t talked about previously! Again, total mind reader and with her being familiar with our venue, she knew exactly what to do- and she absolutely killed it and made our day even that much more amazing. We received compliments all night.
If you need a florist, look no further. It will be one of your easiest decisions to make, because she truly is the best!

Doris was nothing short of incredible. We heard of her through word of mouth - her reputation truly preceded her, and when we finally met her, my entire family knew she was great.
Doris was the only florist to ask a number of questions about our particular wedding and details that could impact what flowers would work for us - including what mine and my bridesmaids dresses looked like. She was incredibly careful in gathering as many details as possible to make sure the flowers for our ceremony and reception suited the rooms they would be in and so that the bouquets looked perfect with what we were wearing. She also was cognizant of pricing and our budget, talking us through certain flower choices that could substitute flowers that I had liked that were particularly pricey or to complement the pricey flowers to help keep our costs at a reasonable level.
She listened, we worked together, and even though I trusted that she not only understood my vision, but would make something more beautiful than I could envision, she didn't make us commit to anything until we saw samples of the centerpieces and bouquets.
Her samples were magnificent, and my wedding was beautiful. Doris is careful to note every detail you request (including making a note to separate certain flowers - something I had asked her about), and my wedding was so beautiful thanks to her adaptation of my vision.
Also - and importantly - the flowers looked SO healthy during the wedding and the flowers my guests were able to bring home lasted for almost two weeks after the wedding. We have been to events where the flowers in centerpieces or bouquets look like they are already dying, based on how long my flowers have lived (my bouquet still looks pretty 3 weeks after my wedding), that is not something to be concerned about if you go with Doris.
I would recommend Doris to anyone and everyone I know planning a wedding (or any event necessitating flowers, for that matter). She is wonderful to work with, creative, and she works with you to achieve a result that is sure to make your wedding day so special and so beautiful.
