We love Gathered Blooms! Tracey did such an amazing job on our ceremony arch, our reception tables and the bouquets and boutonnieres were literally exactly how I was picturing them to be.
The arch really set the tone for the entire ceremony and we were so thrilled how it turned out. I would highly recommend Gathered Blooms to any other couple. We gave her our ideas, she drew up the plan, and executed the florals better than we could have ever imagined. Thank you Tracey!

It was a great experience working with Tracey for my wedding flowers. She is knowledgeable and a creative artist when it comes to the arrangements she put together. The flowers were beyond my expectations and one of the most beautiful pieces of my wedding. She was collaborative in helping usemake DIY flower boxes and had great alternative flowers for those that werent available/ in season. She was flexible meeting in different locations for planning and she maximized what she could provide within our budget. The blooms were stunning and fresh and she did a great job arranging flowers throughout the venue. She worked with the bakery for placing flowers on the cake and wow- stunning! I couldn’t be happier with choosing Tracey.
