About VanderSalm's Flower Shop:

It was founded by Jacob VanderSalm whose father, Jacobus, grew pansies and celery on the same land where the present greenhouses are located. The first shop was on Wall Street (around the corner from the present store) just behind the home of Jacob and his wife Winnie. Jacob died in 1943, and his son Jim took over the store being joined a few years later by his brother Bill. A second store was opened in 1936 in downtown Kalamazoo (next to the Peregrine Towers building). The present store was opened in 1940. The downtown store was closed in 1941 because of difficulty in getting qualified employees during the war years. John VanderSalm, Jim's son, entered the business in 1966 after completion of his education in horticulture at Michigan State University. In 1970 an addition to the store was constructed and in 1986 the greenhouses were replaced with modern more efficient greenhouses. In 1996 John's son, Edwin(Ned) finished his horticulture education at Colorado State University and joined the staff as the fifth generation of VanderSalm's in the flower business in Kalamazoo. Today John and Ned share in the management of business.

    Wonderful Service of Established Company

    I have to say, I was nervous at first to book Vandersalms. I felt like I hadn't seen their work in a stylish, modern feel, but boy was I wrong! Lexie was our consultant, and I couldn't have asked for a better point person. She was so responsive and helpful. I gave her lots of images, inspiration, and specific flowers and she was so helpful! She even helped cut costs by telling me to buy our ceremony pedals on the ground from Costco, and I'm so thankful she did. What would have cost me 500, I spent 150 on those! She was wonderful from the start, and continued to be wonderful! When I arrived on my wedding morning and saw how all the flowers were JUST as I asked, and were even more beautiful than I could have imagined it was wonderful. Vadersalms was easily one of the best vendors we worked with that day. Truly wonderful!

    They do amazing flowers for a wedding. My niece, Amanda, as well as her maid-of-honor loved their wedding bouquets of roses, white flowers, and evergreens for a Northern Michigan wedding motif. They also provided corsages and boutineers for the wedding party and parents. They also worked with MacKenzie Bakery to trim her wedding cake with fresh flowers and greens which was beautiful. We also had them provide spray roses and baby breath for the table settings that were handmade. Everything turned out beautifully and we are very thankful for what Alexi did for Amanda's wedding flowers.
