Wonderful, flexible, kind, a joy to work with
Being a 2020 bride, working with any vendor was chaotic at best - everything switched a thousand times and my uncertainty reigned high until the last minute. But Kim rolled with every single punch and was an absolute joy to work with. From our numerous phone calls to her detailed emails, follow ups and just overall kindness I always felt more at ease after a conversation with her. She took my Pinterest photos, "dislike list", and asked all the right questions to make sure we saw eye to eye. From helping my husband, who owns an indoor farm in Arlington, arrange a drop off of some of his edible flowers so they could be incorporated into my bouquet, to finding a way to attach a family heirloom her attention to detail is top notch. On top of all of this, her price couldn't be beat. Before I found Kim I'd spoken with a number of different florists and nobody seemed to have that right mix at the right price so I was elated to find her and even more excited to work with her again for our wedding celebration in 2021 (covid willing...)Sent on 01/09/2021

I highly recommend the garden studio. Our flowers far exceeded our expectations. We were helped along the way with our vision and Kim nailed it right on the head. We got so many compliments on our flowers. We absolutely loved them.Sent on 10/18/2020

Kim is nothing short of spectacular! She is extremely easy to work with and has an incredible knowledge of flowers. She created stunning bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres that exactly captured the English garden style I envisioned. She also helped me incorporate greenery and wedding flowers on our reception tables to lanterns designed by one of my grandmothers.Sent on 10/01/2020
Kim was extremely flexible, especially given some of the challenges we faced with wedding planning due to Covid. She willingly worked with us as we moved our date from June to September. She also helped me adjust my flower order several times in the last month before the wedding, as key wedding party and family members were unable to attend due to travel restrictions. I very much appreciated both her patience and her willingness to work with me, particularly during a very emotional time.
I would strongly recommend Kim! You will not be disappointed.
The Garden Studio's reply:Alexis! Thank you for your wonderful review! It was a pleasure working with you and making your English Garden vision come to life. Flowers are the best antidote to Covid-19. I was thrilled to be part of your wedding day.
