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!!!Sent on 09/12/2020

Karen at Keepsakes florist did an incredible job with our flowers! We couldn't have been any happier with the way everything turned out. I can't say enough positive things about Karen. The freshness of her flowers spoke volumes about the quality of flowers she uses. It's obvious Karen prides herself in her work. Going into the floral section of the wedding planning process, I had no idea what I wanted to do, or what I even liked! I told Karen my budget, and asked what kind of flowers she could suggest that would keep me under my budget, but also fit into the burgundy/mauve color scheme I was going for. I was impressed with the wealth of knowledge, suggestions, and ideas that she gave me. She ended up saving me a ton of money. Her pricing ended up significantly beating all of the local florists in the Charleston area. When I originally contacted her for a quote, she was very responsive, polite, professional, and most importantly of all, PATIENT. I would recommend Keepsakes Florist for all of your floral needs, whether it's sending an arrangement to a loved one, or needing a florist for your wedding! Highly recommend her.Sent on 11/08/2020

I am so happy that we decided to go with Keepsakes as our Florist for our wedding. Karen was so helpful with the whole process; she knew the venue well and provided amazing guidance with what works for the venue. She had a vision of what we were looking for immediately had additional guidance when we needed ideas. There were a bunch of changes weeks before the wedding and Karen had no issues and immediately had it sorted, taking away so much stress.Sent on 10/22/2020
Karen also went above and beyond by delivering our bouquets to a different location so that we could do our first look prior to going to the venue. Everything was GORGEOUS (bouquets, boutonnieres, table centerpieces) EVERYTHING.
I would recommend Keepsakes Florist to anyone looking for a florist.
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!
Karen and her staff are always friendly and we are thrilled to see their flowers any chance we get while photographing weddings. If you are looking for a well-established and reputable florist that consistently produces beautiful arrangements, then Keepsakes is a great choice!
Super impressed with the colors, freshness and beauty of Keepsakes Florist's work. They have done a wonderful job with all the flowers we have seen them do! We are proud to share photos with them so they can show off the beauty of what they have created!
