We *loved* working with Barbara! Barbara listened to what we wanted, and helped us stay in budget. I had been turned off by other florists who kept trying to "upsell" flowers, but Barbara really listened to what we wanted and was wonderfully flexible. A few weeks before the wedding we got to visit her farm and pick the flowers and colors we wanted from her fields. We loved that we were able to source some local flowers for our wedding. For some added whimsy, Barbara clandestinely worked with my mom who wanted to surprise me with some extra arrangements -- Barbara's discretion led to a wonderful surprise on our wedding day, and truly beautiful arrangements. She is a true artist!Sent on 01/05/2020

Talented and passionate
Barbara is a genius. Her work is incredible. The best thing I did was to give her our color palette and let her work her magic. She is a true experienced professional who has such a passion for what she does. If you can give her some creative freedom to do what she does best, she won’t disappoint. She came highly recommended from a friend and I recommend her just as highly.Sent on 03/14/2020

Amazing service. Barbara is the absolute best. From the very first consult through the day of the wedding, Barbara ensured she zeroed in on our vision of the event. I'm not at all a flower or plant expert, nor did I have a Pinterest vision board of what I envisioned. Fear not! Barbara had tons of photos at the ready, organized by color and was able to give my fiance and I candid comments on which flowers were seasonally appropriate (I got married in mid-February), which flowers were within our budget (AWESOME), and which ones matched our overall vibe (classy, with a bit of funk). She also asked for some trust to design the bouquets, and I'm so so happy with how they all looked. They were amazing!Sent on 02/28/2020
Set-up and tear down during the wedding was also amazing. Her staff arrived right on time, set up the centerpieces and the chupah beautifully, and then arrived later that evening to tear everything down. Our guests kept telling us how beautiful everything looked, and we know Growing Wild played a big part of that!
Lastly - Barbara will absolutely work with your budget! We were so appeciative of this last bit!
Passing on all our thanks to Barbara and the Growing Wild team. We'd consider using them for another event in a heartbeat.
We highly recommend Barabara of Growing Wild. She was even the florist for our blizzard wedding and the bride's flowers were still stunning. We are always thrilled when we know it's her work will be shooting. She is creative and amazing to work with!
Growing Wild time and time again comes in at budget and provides a gorgeous product. My clients are always thrilled with the bouquets and arrangements. Growing Wild is always on time at the beginning and end of the event. Responses via email are always timely, and appointments are easy to make. But ultimately it comes down to the floral design. The array of props is wide, and the quality of the floral is just stunning. You can't go wrong when you hire Growing Wild.
Barbara's flowers are always amazing and our clients really enjoy working with her. We look forward to any event that employs her floral decor.
