Beautiful Flowers

We used Keepsakes Florist as our florist for our wedding. My office sent us flowers from them when we got engagement and I was so impressed by the arrangement, we decided to use them for wedding. Elyn has been amazing to work with and really listened to what type of arrangements we wanted. She even sent photos of the arrangements the day before the wedding to ensure that we were satisfied with them. I would highly recommend them!

Perfect Pandemic Wedding!!

I can't say it enough how happy I am that we decided to go with Karen at Keepsakes Florist for our wedding. We have family and friends that have used them at their weddings and have always been impressed with her work. After we booked her for our wedding, I actually broke my hip and was basically on bed rest for months unable to do anything but wedding plan-which sounds great but was absolutely miserable. One saturday my now husband went to the front door and brought back the most beautiful arrangement of flowers. I peeked out the blinds and saw Mrs. Karen getting back in her car. She had personally delivered a gorgeous arrangement with a card saying she had heard about my hip and hoped these would cheer me up. They really did! Fast forward to our wedding (originally 4/25/2020, moved to 6/27/2020-extremely downsized from our original plan) and Karen and her team knocked it out of the park!! She rolled with the punches when 20 days before our wedding our original venue fell through and we had to find a new venue and completely alter our floral contract. Not only did she say she could accommodate all of the changes, but she actually helped me find a new venue!! We decided on Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, SC where my Dad and Stepmom were married in 2007. She has done many weddings here before so she not only knew what kind of space she was working with, but also how to compliment the beauty of the venue perfectly. I knew moving our wedding 2 months would probably change the type of flowers that would be available. Karen managed to deliver everything off of the original contract! Everything was GORGEOUS. I love Ranuculus and Peonies and they were stunning in every arrangement. She complimented all of the other decor perfectly AND was able to use all of the milk glass i dropped off for her to use! My bridesmaids loved their bouquets-they were the perfect size! The groomsmen had perfect boutonnieres and my Dad, mom and stepmom loved their flowers they wore. My Husband lost both of his parents before he was out of high school , so it was extremely important to honor them on our wedding day. Karen had a beautiful idea to have a single white rose for each of them to designate a memorial chair for them at the ceremony. It brought my husband's twin brothers to tears to see their picture and their roses displayed so beautifully. In all the chaos of the day, I vividly remember getting ready and Karen coming upstairs where everyone was getting ready to personally show me my bouquet. It was so much more beautiful than I could have imagined! Most of the day was such a blur, so I have to refer back to photographs of the day to piece it all together-my photographer captured Karen's work beautifully and I am so glad I chose Keepsakes. I will continue to choose them for all of my floral needs in the future. Karen and her team are so great at responding quickly to any calls or emails and are super conveniently located on Maybank Highway. You have no idea how reassuring it is to have such a dependable florist when everything else about your wedding was out of your control. Thank you to Karen and her staff! You are all SO wonderful!!!

Beautiful Flowers!

Keepsakes put together the most beautiful bouquets, boutonniere's and wrist corsages. At first I wanted greenery bouquets but I ended up going with Garden Roses, Moonstone Roses, Hydrangeas and Eucalyptus. The flowers were fresh and taken care of quite well, well enough that I was able to send off my bouquet to be preserved two days after the wedding. I will have to post photos as soon as I get them :)

Karen at Keepsakes is one of our top recommendations for a florist here in Charleston. Her flowers are always fresh and beautiful and she's a pleasure to work with. One of our main concerns when having fresh flowers on a cake is not having the "left-overs", which don't always look the best, but when working with Karen, we know that won't be a problem at all! She's always reliable!
