Barbie was a hoot to work with for over a year while I planned my Beaufort, SC wedding from Ohio. I met with several florists before being referred to CCF. I did not really know how to communicate my vision but after talking with Barbie for a short period of time, she just got it. From that point she had sooo many great ideas and suggestions to make my vision work. At the last minute, she threw together some flowers for my rehearsal dinner as well. She has that Southern Charm that makes the Low Country so wonderful. She was very reasonably priced and she was always so sweet and professional (even with a 45 minute away delivery). My bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets, wristlets for the Moms/special guests and the boutonnieres for the men were simply amazing. Most of all, when I walked into the reception venue, I was in awe of how perfect her arrangements were and how she nailed everything about what I had envisioned. Her creations were full and vibrant- they were absolutely gorgeous!!!
Coastal Custom Floral/CCF Designs's reply:Awe, thank you so much, Erica - you were sooo wonderful to work with! I'm thrilled that you were happy with your wedding flowers and that your day was wonderful - you deserve it! Love truly is something to celebrate, and I wish you guys a lifetime of love and happiness!!!

Barbie and CCF Designs are a wonderful choice for your wedding. Barbie can work with any budget and make the flowers look fabulous! Barbie is not only talented but thoughtful. The day I visited CCF Designs to determine if I would use them, Barbie needed to take just a moment's break from our conversation to give a local gentleman a stack of business cards she had printed for him using her own money. (He was older & rode his bicycle to do handyman jobs in the neighborhood.) Upon witnessing her thoughtfulness and talent for working with flowers, I knew she was the right choice for my daughter's wedding. True enough, she made everything beautiful!Sent on 10/20/2014

I selected CCF Designs to do my flowers for my 10th Wedding Anniversary where we going to actually renew our vows. It was a casual beach vow renewal with a oceanfront reception. I was looking for something very simply. I spoke to Barbie and told her my colors and what I was looking for and when they arrived that day they were perfect. Thanks again for everything!!!Sent on 09/08/2014
Coastal Custom Floral/CCF Designs's reply:Melainie, you were an absolute gorgeous bride!!!! You're beautiful inside and out, and it was an honor and a pleasure to be chosen to provide the flowers for your wedding!!! Love you, girl!

CCF Designs was incredibly flexible, and they worked well with my budget. I was thrilled with my bouquet and the table arrangements. They really captured the theme of the wedding.Sent on 01/03/2013

Megan · Married on 11/17/2012
CCF Designs, and specifically Barbie Turner, were truly wonderful. Barbies' skills are impeccable and they exceeded any expectations I had. Weddings are stressful but as soon as I saw the bouquets and boutonnieres, I suddenly felt better. I received so many compliments on the centerpieces and bouquets. I would most definitely recommend CCF Designs to anyone looking for an amazing service!Sent on 12/19/2012
Coastal Custom Floral/CCF Designs's reply:Megan, I was so far over the moon to work on your wedding mostly because of how deeply in love you and Dan are!!! I loved the romantic feel that that encompassed the entire day!!! I wish the both of you a lifetime of love and happiness!!!
Jennifer · Married on 10/27/2012
My flowers were gorgeous! I was so happy with how they turned out. Jackie & Barbie listened to what type of flowers I like and don't like and came up with the perfect arrangements. They were exactly what I wanted!Sent on 11/01/2012
Coastal Custom Floral/CCF Designs's reply:Jennifer, we were so honored to be a part of your wedding! Just being on the Island makes me emotional! You were an absolutely STUNNING bride!!! You have amazing taste - your bouquet was one of my favorites this year; we even ordered a canvas print from your wedding for the studio! Best wishes to you and Mike for a lifetime of love and happiness!
Sue · Married on 05/26/2012
Barbie was an absolute joy to work with! Not only did she create a magnificent brooch bouquet for me (that I am able to cherish forever), she went well above and beyond in helping me make decisions, spent a lot of her time shopping for just the right jewelry for our pieces, and delivered everything so I could focus on other tasks. Since my wedding Barbie and my family have developed a close friendship and that to me is the true test of a devoted florist! She is the best, by far, in the Lowcountry!Sent on 09/23/2012
Coastal Custom Floral/CCF Designs's reply:Sue, you have know idea how much I loved that bouquet!!! It was really hard to hand it over to you! What's even more special though is having a chance to know you and Gene!!! I look forward to seeing you both again soon!!!
Alison · Married on 05/19/2012
Barbie was fantastic to work with! She was extremely patient and flexible with our planning, and provided beautiful flowers. My bouquet was EXACTLY what I wanted and I loved it! With other situations, where I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted (aisle markers!) she was able to take my random ideas and the general theme of our wedding and just run with it! The outcome was better than I could have imagined. She was also able to incorporate lemons into our yellow themed centerpieces, just as I wanted. She even suggested some lovely touches to the venue that I would have never considered, such as decorating the outside railings. Knowing that we had a limited budget, she made great suggestions for getting the most out of our flowers. Overall, I was extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Barbie Turner and CCF Designs!!Sent on 01/29/2013
Coastal Custom Floral/CCF Designs's reply:Oh, Alison, I just loved working with you!!! Honestly, I was a little nervous providing the wedding flowers for the only daughter of a fellow florist!!! P.S. I have a couple of pictures of some alligators that swam up to the bank to watch your ceremony!!! Gotta love the Low Country!

I was so happy and excited to design for a true Low Country Wedding, complete with sea palm roses and sweet grass baskets! I loved that your Mother was involved in the design for your wedding as well; she was such a gem to work with. After all, weddings are a family affair!!! Congratulations Sweetie!

Barbie created beautiful designs that fit my classic southern theme perfectly! She drove to Charleston from her home base of serving the Bluffton/Savannah/Hilton Head area to accomodate us, and she even signed our marriage license (as a notary public). Thank you, Barbie!Sent on 10/02/2012
Coastal Custom Floral/CCF Designs's reply:Thank you so much! You have impeccable taste, which made my job very, very easy. I was born in Charleston, South Carolina and it has a very special place in my heart. You and Adam are such a beautiful couple. I was happy to sign your marriage license. I'm just so happy that your Grandpa was able to travel here and perform the ceremony. The fact that they were able to use your ceremony arrangements the next day for Easter Sunday service was just the icing on the cake. Just sooo "you"!

Barbie Turner, owner of 'Mostly Weddings' designed and created the floral centerpieces and wedding ceremony decor for our son and daughter-in-law's 9.10.11 wedding in Bluffton, SC. Her creations, service, responsiveness and professionalism exceeded our expectations. It was a stunning and joyous wedding.Sent on 09/19/2011
We contacted Barbie over a year ago since we were planning the destination wedding from a distance in Chicago. We did not have the on-the-ground knowledge of local vendors so we proceeded very cautiously as we selected them. Discouraged with a floral vendor quote that was twice our stated budget, we phoned Barbie and even from that first conversation, we felt we were in the hands of a vendor who would provide high quality service and respect our budget.
Barbie graciously made herself available for planning meetings during our limited visits to Bluffton and she was an invaluable counselor for the entire look and design of the wedding. She worked tirelessly with us to ensure that the centerpieces reflected the exact design that the bride envisioned - even willingly creating two prototypes so we could see one on the table in the venue.
Barbie partnered with us in so many ways to ensure that the outdoor ceremony decor would be both practical and beautiful. Likewise, she was instrumental in helping us develop a rain back-up plan - which thankfully was not needed! - and this was an enormous stress reducer.
She instantly grasped our desire to funnel the bulk of the budget into the flowers themselves and worked hard to find beautiful and affordable containers that allowed the flowers to 'shine'. When we were able to locate and purchase an arch and urns for the ceremony, Barbie applauded our cost-saving efforts and happily went about designing a plan to decorate them with her flowers.
Being long distance wedding planners, we were especially pleased that Barbie concentrated soley and completely on OUR wedding for an entire week - no floral shop to run, no other committments to distract her in the run-up to our event. She was calm, creative, pleasant and, her flowers and wedding decor exceeded our expectations.
Barbie exudes joy in her chosen profession and she clearly cared as much as we did that the outcome was exactly as we had hoped. For these reasons, we recommend Barbie without reservation.

I truly believe Barbie deserves 6 stars! She met the 5 that all brides hope for and went so far above and beyond, it to this day amazes me. I have planned wedding with 5 friends now (1 at this moment) and oh how I wish they lived in SC so they could have Barbie too.Sent on 10/24/2011
I got married on 9-10-11 and the bouquets that Barbie brought into the room for myself and my bridesmaids were more that I had asked for (and I had a very particular idea in my mind). We all stood with admiring eyes and jaws dropped. The funny thing about this moment was that I ran to Barbie and hugged her, taking my eyes off of my amazing bouquet to thank a vendor that had become a friend in this process. I am here to tell you it was not this way with other vendors, and the relationship Barbie created with me, I am confident she takes the time to create with all of her brides, is so unique and special. Aside from getting everything and more that you have hoped for and wished for on your day, you will have a friendly face that you have grown to really know running around “setting YOUR stage” and you will not for a moment need to run into the room to make sure it is what you want. Barbie knew me so well by my wedding day because she was always available by text, email, calls, meetings, and texting photos. I was a bride in Chicago and Barbie was the one vendor that I felt was in Chicago with me. I did not feel the distance at all. Her constant communication and availability made this happen!
I Thank Barbie for the day she created for me. Every room was filled with her little touches, things I did not even think of. I Thank Barbie for not only making my day but also for the entire 12 months prior to my wedding day that she was in contact with me, listened to me, worked with me, offered her creative ideas and experience to make my day better. She got to know me as a person so that on my day … she was the one person I trusted 110% because I knew she knew me and her skills and experience would combine with her knowledge of who I was to execute a look and feel that was all I had wished for and more. 6 stars Barbie! I can not Thank you enough! So beautiful!! The Arbor, the centerpieces, the bouquets, the chandelier, and everything else you touched with your one of a kind creativity and beauty! Thank you!

I planned my wedding out of town and discussed my flower arrangements over the phone with Barbie! She was absolutely a joy to talk to and eased my mind about planning a wedding from 900 miles away. I am from Chicago area and planned our wedding in Hilton Head, SC! She did a tremendous job on all the flowers and worked hard to fit what I wanted into my budget! She also helped me make my decision on a photographer as well! Everyone at the wedding commented on the beauty of her work!Sent on 07/03/2011

Barbie Turner, owner of Mostly Weddings by Willow and Wildfolwers was the florist for our desination wedding on Hilton Head Island, SC. As any bride knows it is hard to plan a wedding and choose vendors when you live out of state. Our wedding day was absolutly perfect!! We never met Barbie until our wedding morning, we planned everything long distance via phone, and computer. I emailed her photograhs of different bouquets and we would talk out ideas together over the phone. Our flowers were picture perfect and gorgeous! The night before our wedding I decided that "I needed" to be married on the beach with an arbor! This was My last minute thought the night before and Barbie did not hesitate! She put together the most beautiful wedding alter for us. Our Beach wedding was our dream and Thank You Barbie for all that you did to help us see our Hilton Head Wedding come true!.......Sent on 06/17/2011

Veronica · Married on 05/29/2010
I can not say enough on how wonderful Barbie is. We were on a tight budget and were planning in making our centerpieces out of fake flowers. Barbie suggested she could do them out of real flowers for us cheaper than we could do fake ones and boy was she right! Not only did she give us an awesome price, her arrangements were so beautiful! She did our centerpieces, my bouquet, corsages and even had real flowers on our cake! I could not have asked for a sweeter person to work with or higher quality flowers! Anyone who uses her will not be disappointed!Sent on 04/09/2013

Barbie was such a great florist for my wedding. She executed my vision for the day with such perfection and class. She delivered my bouquets on time, as well as set up the church and reception. She was always nearby at the church and reception and had extra flowers (which we never needed to use). She was very creative and flexible, as we used our flowers in the church windows and later she moved them to the reception tables. Additionally, all the flowers were extremely fresh and full of life.Sent on 01/30/2011
It was such a blessing to find Barbie and I would recommend her without any hesitation.
