    A Unbeatable Talent. BEAUTIFUL.

    We are unbelievably blessed to have Shelly Johnson as our florist.
    She was incredibly communicative, kind, and well-- TALENTED!

    She turned the whole venue into a fairytale land. It was everything I could have dreamed of and more.

    What I could not put into words, she put into designs. She took a few small ideas and RAN WITH IT.

    I cannot say enough kind things.
    Our wedding would not have the jaw-dropping impact it did without her.

    Thank you so much to you Shelly and your team.

    She helped bring our vision to life!

    Shelly was a fantastic vendor for our wedding in October 2020! She was so transparent about pricing, flower availability, and was willing to help us create beautiful flowers for our ceremony that fell within what we budgeted. She was also very willing to adapt to our change of plans due to the pandemic, and even helped to add on some last minute florals for our wedding cake which we forgot to request. My wife was thrilled with her bouquet, and we heard tons of compliments about how beautiful the floral arrangements were at the church. We can't wait to work with Shelly again for our future reception!

    She is on point!

    *This comes from a critical someone who rarely, if ever, doles out 5-stars*:
    Absolutely THE BEST wedding vendor I had the privilege of working with for our wedding! Shelly was amazing in every way, and I echo all of the comments left in the 5 star reviews prior to this posting. This speaks volumes to her consistency and reliability. From wonderful and timely to vision-capturing and detail-oriented, Shelly blew me away. I had so much confidence with her understanding of and confirming my visions at our first meeting that I didn’t feel the need to meet immediately prior to the wedding day/week (and that’s tough for a controlling perfectionist, but she made it easy for me to let go and trust). Her communications by phone and email were thorough and she never missed a beat. I cannot stress enough how amazing she was - and I hate writing but I’m so so inspired to share this review with the world. Don’t bother with interviewing several florists for price estimates, or for a variety of supplies and rentals, or whatever it is that is most important to you. Shelly is competitively priced, professional, has a huge selection and everything you could ever want, and continues to sharpen her education and stay relevant in the ever-changing wedding/floral industry. She is on point! Thank you ever so much, Shelly!

Sandy VanderTol Photography Sandy VanderTol Photography Wedding Photographers

As a wedding photographer I work with different vendors at each wedding, and over the years I have gotten to know Shelly and her work very well. She is at the top of my list for wonderful people to add to your wedding team. She goes over and above to give her clients stunning bouquets and breath taking centerpieces. I hired her for my own son's wedding, because when you are in the business you want the best for your own kids. I've known Shelly for about 15 years and never have I heard a negative comment from anyone about her. She is always on time and can juggle many details at the same time with precision and grace. It's always a treat for me when my clients book Shelly and I walk into a church and see how she can make the garden of Eden out of a platform with a set of drums on it. She's a fabulous designer and I give her my highest endorsement!
