Flowers, flower gardens, trees, nurseries, flower shops and just about anything floral in nature has always been a passion for me. I can remember the feeling I got as a child visiting my Great Aunt Eula's florist shop in Greensboro, North Carolina, Bryson's Florist. I loved the fragrances and marveled at the designers as they prepared an order for a special client. I always wanted to bring some of the flowers back home to Florida with me. Little did I know that those early childhood experiences would some day come full circle and I would have my own business creating beautiful flowers for beautiful brides. I think this love affair I have with flowers shows in each bouquet, boutonniere, corsage and table centerpiece I make. My hope is that you will feel the love too.

So much more than a florist
I had 2 1/2 months to plan my wedding. As overwhelming as that seemed, I knew with the right vendors I could do it -- and one vendor, Garden Gate Florals, took it beyond just the possible and made it more than I could have imagined. Lauren at Garden Gate Florals met with me, listened to what I had in mind (with my limited knowledge of wedding florals!) and then filled in the blanks and dreamed the rest with me until it was perfect. She listened to my budget and didn't push me further than I could go. She used my budget to meet every need and exceeded it. In our first meeting, we walked through the whole ceremony, cocktail time, and reception to make sure nothing was missed. She has extensive knowledge to know what is needed and became far more than a florist. She dreamed out the whole day with me and made sure no stone was unturned. She asked valuable questions about things I didn't even know to think about. We then met a second time so that Lauren could show me the flowers she planned to use and vision for the bouquets, and to again go over the details. She was very responsive if questions arose and contacted me for my thoughts/opinions as she made decisions. I was getting a little stressed about the wedding by the time we met again, but she gave me great peace in our meeting and I knew that I had chosen the perfect person to be part of my wedding day. On the day of, Lauren provided THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS AND ARRANGEMENTS I had ever seen at a wedding -- and they were at MY WEDDING! They were so far beyond just the normal bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces. Her arrangements were so well thought out, perfectly put together with care and thoughtfulness. She was where she needed to be and had everything ready for me when I arrived. Lauren was that second set of eyes on everything for me. She even ended up being the person who held the door for me to walk down the aisle. There were plenty of mishaps that happened through the day -- as with any wedding -- but not one of them was with Lauren or the flowers, and every mishap became better because of Lauren's presence and care. Bonus: now I have the most beautiful flowers in all of my wedding pictures. I couldn't have asked for more. I have so much gratitude to Lauren and Garden Gate Florals for going above and beyond. I cannot recommend them enough.Sent on 04/10/2019
Garden Gate Florals's reply:Oh my goodness, Nicole. How sweet are these words to my ears and heart. Thank you so very much. It was a complete honor and joy to do whatever I could to see that your day was the best! Thank you again.

Lauren at Garden Gate Florals designed several things for my wedding in July 2018, including the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, two tall arrangements in pilsner vases, a sweetheart table garland, and cake flowers. They were all BEAUTIFUL! She truly knows her flowers and has a special eye for design. I was probably not the easiest person to consult with in the sense that I know nothing about flowers and didn't give her much to go off of... however, Lauren was still able to bring my vision to life and create pieces that were better than I could have ever envisioned myself. Plus, she is so kind and truly cares! Thanks for helping to make our day so special!!!Sent on 08/01/2018

Garden Gate Florals is AMAZING! If you are looking for an incredibly talented florist, look no further! My husband and I worked with them a few weeks ago and we absolutely LOVED what they created for this wedding! We can't wait to work with them again in the future! :-)
We participated with Garden Gate Florals at The NotWedding event. We loved their fabulous ideas and arrangements for centerpieces, as well as the gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres that they did. We would highly refer them to any bride!
