    Beautiful Flowers, Would Recommend

    Donna and her team nailed it. Gorgeous arrangements, even after multiple requests for changes. She took my pictures from Pinterest and made them into my wedding reality. A little slow on responding to emails sometimes.

    Vision Executed

    Donna executed my vision with only a few conversations and a couple pictures. I was not super involved so I was a little nervous on the wedding day before seeing out flowers but they turned out better than I could imagine! Donna did our bouquets but then she just allowed me to order bulk flowers to use for our centerpieces so it was very affordable!

    Absolutely amazing!

    I was planning my Ocean Isle Beach wedding from Maryland so taking time to meet with vendors face to face was a little difficult for us. Our venue recommended Donna at Calabash Florist and I am so happy they did! Donna was very responsive over email and helped me pick my perfect flowers. I sent her a bunch of pictures of different bouquets that I found on Pinterest, along with the color of my bridesmaids dresses and she was able to take a little bit of everything and turn it into something beautiful. When I was getting ready on Saturday for the wedding and the flowers showed up, every one was in awe over how beautiful the bouquets looked! We also had 2 teardrop bouquets hanging on our arbor on the beach and they matched everything perfectly! For someone who didn't know much about picking flowers (me) she helped me out so much! All of my guests were raving about them!!

    Absolutely incredible!

    Here is why you should book Donna immediately: I live in St. Louis, never met Donna in person, sent her a few pictures of my dream flowers, and she made it happen. Seriously. We had a small, intimate wedding in Ocean Isle Beach, NC (but we live in the midwest) so you can imagine how difficult it was to figure out vendors. When you don't have the luxury of meeting someone face to face, you have to trust their reputation and character. Every single person I talked to in the area told me to go to Donna. When I told other vendors that she was my florist, most of them replied with, "Thank goodness, your wedding will be gorgeous". My family has a tradition of getting married with dahlias, more specifically, yellow dahlias. Hurricane Florence hit 2 weeks before my wedding in NC, most of Donna's wholesalers were unable to get flowers and being able to transport ANY flower was almost out of the question. But, when I told Donna that this was a family tradition, she made it happen. She contacted everyone she needed to in order to get me those yellow dahlias. Donna delivered the flowers while I was upstairs getting my hair and make up done, so I STILL have never met her face to face. But, as soon as she brought the flowers into the house I had 3 people come upstairs and tell me that I had the most beautiful flowers they had ever seen. One of my guests is best friends with a floral designer and was so blown away with their beauty that she sent dozens of pictures of what Donna had created. I could not have asked for a better experience, Donna is not only a creative visionary but a truly, genuine person. She will go the extra mile, she will make it happen. Thank you, Donna, for making our day so special. I hope to FINALLY meet you face to face one day!!!


    Warm regards,
    Lucie & Quinn Lawrence

    Donna was absolutely wonderful to work with. My daughter got marries 9/23/18 which was just a week after hurricane Florence so all the vendors were concerned about being able to travel to the venue due to road closures. Donna went out of her way to ensure the flowers would be ready and created the most beautiful bouquet. I HIGHLY recommend this florist!!!

    Donna, was amazing!! She listened and gave ideas and knew exactly what we were talking about, even when we weren't sure. The weeding took place exactly one week after hurricane Florence and we weren't even sure there was going to be a wedding and poor Donna's shop flooded, but she still managed to pull through and created beautiful arrangements for the wedding! She was at the venue early and had everything setup and ready, well before the wedding was supposed to start. I highly recommend Donna, she is so kind and works with you to achieve the look you want for your special day!!!

    Beautiful Arrangements!

    Donna did an amazing job with the centerpieces for the tables at my wedding reception. I was having a beach theme wedding and was interested in a arrangement with lanterns and flowers. Donna put together the perfect arrangements made with white lanterns and flowers to match my royal blue wedding color. All my guests commented on the beautiful arrangements.

    Calabash was fantastic to work with for our wedding flowers. Donna was very knowledgeable and helped me to select flowers that fit the design ideas I had in my head. She was very responsive to my emails and answered any questions I had in a timely manner. The flowers arrived promptly on the day of the ceremony and they looked fantastic. We received so many compliments on our floral arrangements that day. Thank you Donna and the rest of your team!

    Calabash Florist and Donna were the perfect fit for our wedding weekend at Ocean Isle Beach. Being from out of town, Donna was easy to get in touch with and was very responsive to all of our questions. She took all of our ideas and used them to come up with budget friendly options as she provided different choices to fit the look we wanted. She was very accommodating with making last minute changes and was flexible with using some of our own vases/decorative options along with items she had. The florals were absolutely stunning and were exactly what I had pictured. Donna is very talented and was the perfect addition to our wedding weekend at the beach!

    Donna was amazing to work with. She helped design my dream bouquet at an affordable budget. I was not very knowledgeable about flowers to describe my vision; however, she took a peak at my Pinterest board and brought my vision to life! My wedding flowers were simply stunning! I highly recommend Calabash Florist and Company for all your floral needs.

    Donna was amazing. When i initially called her she spent hours on the phone with me, guiding me through different options. She was patient with my lack of knowledge about flowers. She was fast to respond with a detailed quote on her services, which also included decor rentals, and made it easy to change the order along the way. Donna offers a variety of beautiful rentals such as lanterns, shepherd's hooks, rounds vases, mercury glass votives, etc. The day of the wedding i was blown away! The arbor arrangement, bouquets, boutonuers, centerpieces and decor...... every flower was prettier than i had imagined they would be in my head. Donna and her team were amazing in pricing, professionalism, presentation, all while being helpful and understanding. If you hire her, you will not be disappointed!

    Donna and Christy are amazing! They were able to work within my budget and give me the flowers I visioned for my wedding day.
