    Seamless and beautiful

    We had our wedding at The Woodlands this weekend, and it was beautiful. Everything went off without a hitch, despite the very fickle weather forecast that changed (for the better) on the morning of our wedding. The venue quickly adapted the plan, and our ceremony and reception were gorgeous. Thank you!

We have provided floral designs for several weddings at Algonkian. Whether the flowers are for an outdoor or indoor ceremony, the staff is always very courteous and helpful, making for an easy setup. I know they go out of their way to accommodate the Bride and her guests. I have heard that being able to stay in onsite cabins is a big plus for a Bride and her family. We will continue to refer Brides to Algonkian because all reports are very favorable. Kathleen Hoxie Blooming Spaces Event Flowers Sterling, Virginia
