So much more than a florist
I had 2 1/2 months to plan my wedding. As overwhelming as that seemed, I knew with the right vendors I could do it -- and one vendor, Garden Gate Florals, took it beyond just the possible and made it more than I could have imagined. Lauren at Garden Gate Florals met with me, listened to what I had in mind (with my limited knowledge of wedding florals!) and then filled in the blanks and dreamed the rest with me until it was perfect. She listened to my budget and didn't push me further than I could go. She used my budget to meet every need and exceeded it. In our first meeting, we walked through the whole ceremony, cocktail time, and reception to make sure nothing was missed. She has extensive knowledge to know what is needed and became far more than a florist. She dreamed out the whole day with me and made sure no stone was unturned. She asked valuable questions about things I didn't even know to think about. We then met a second time so that Lauren could show me the flowers she planned to use and vision for the bouquets, and to again go over the details. She was very responsive if questions arose and contacted me for my thoughts/opinions as she made decisions. I was getting a little stressed about the wedding by the time we met again, but she gave me great peace in our meeting and I knew that I had chosen the perfect person to be part of my wedding day. On the day of, Lauren provided THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS AND ARRANGEMENTS I had ever seen at a wedding -- and they were at MY WEDDING! They were so far beyond just the normal bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces. Her arrangements were so well thought out, perfectly put together with care and thoughtfulness. She was where she needed to be and had everything ready for me when I arrived. Lauren was that second set of eyes on everything for me. She even ended up being the person who held the door for me to walk down the aisle. There were plenty of mishaps that happened through the day -- as with any wedding -- but not one of them was with Lauren or the flowers, and every mishap became better because of Lauren's presence and care. Bonus: now I have the most beautiful flowers in all of my wedding pictures. I couldn't have asked for more. I have so much gratitude to Lauren and Garden Gate Florals for going above and beyond. I cannot recommend them enough.Sent on 04/10/2019
Garden Gate Florals's reply:Oh my goodness, Nicole. How sweet are these words to my ears and heart. Thank you so very much. It was a complete honor and joy to do whatever I could to see that your day was the best! Thank you again.
Lauren · Married on 07/14/2018
Lauren at Garden Gate Florals designed several things for my wedding in July 2018, including the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, two tall arrangements in pilsner vases, a sweetheart table garland, and cake flowers. They were all BEAUTIFUL! She truly knows her flowers and has a special eye for design. I was probably not the easiest person to consult with in the sense that I know nothing about flowers and didn't give her much to go off of... however, Lauren was still able to bring my vision to life and create pieces that were better than I could have ever envisioned myself. Plus, she is so kind and truly cares! Thanks for helping to make our day so special!!!Sent on 08/01/2018
Garden Gate Florals's reply:Oh, goodness....Lauren. Thank you so very much for your kind words. I was honored to serve you on your wedding day and hope that you will have the happiest life, trying out all the breweries you can find...lol! Thank you again.

Christina · Married on 04/14/2018
Everything about Garden Gate Florals was above and beyond all our expectations. I honestly have zero complaints. Lauren was amazing and so hard working, I had a beautiful giant flower arch and many center pieces and a few other things as well. She gave me the best price possible and everything was beautiful! I wanted some things that were complicated and not once did she says no, she stayed up late and worked hard to figure out how it could be done. I would definitely use Garden Gate Florals again without a question! I am still getting compliments on how beautiful the flowers were at my wedding! Overall I am super happy and thankful for everything they did for us!Sent on 05/09/2018
Garden Gate Florals's reply:Oh Wow!! Christina! What a beautiful review. Thank you so, so much! You were a breeze to work with and I am super happy that you were pleased. Best wishes always!

Lauren will help make your visions become a reality. We met with her, with an idea of what our floral arrangements were going to look like and it all turned out better than we had hoped for! From my bouquet, the trellis piece and even the guys’ boutineers, it all flowed so well together and it was just the final touch we needed to make everything perfect on our wedding day.Sent on 11/02/2017
Garden Gate Florals's reply:Thank you soooo much, Meredith. It was such a pleasure working with you. Have a wonderful life!!

Lauren is amazing. My family has used her for both my wedding, my sister's, as well as several friends, and she never disappoints. What I love most about Lauren is she is not afraid to share her opinion with you! Any questions you have about what may or may not look good or should I do this or that, Lauren will give you an honest opinion and I promise you that your wedding day will be the better for it! She is so knowledgeable and every bouquet, table arrangement, and boutonniere, is a work of art! We love Lauren and Garden Gate Florals and can't recommend her enough!Sent on 01/07/2017
Garden Gate Florals's reply:Thank you so very much, Callie, for this awesome review. I am overwhelmed by your kind words. I have loved working with you, your sister and your mom as you have made me feel like "one of the family." Have a beautiful new life with Zach! Thank you again.

Lauren is amazing at what she does! I went into wedding flowers not knowing what I wanted at all. I first thought about calla lilies and nothing else. Lauren took me to a floral wholesaler so I could actually see what they would end up looking like. I didn't love them like I thought I would. She helped figure out a new plan. She even helped me by pinning flower/bouquet ideas to my Pinterest board. Lauren really understands flowers! The way the move, their attitudes, durability, complementary colors, etc. I found some inspiration for her that was full of fall colors and she more than delivered! They were unique, beautiful and exactly what I wanted! I had a hard time expressing what I wanted, but she figured me out quickly and I loved my flowers. My hair and makeup team said they had never seen bouquets like mine before! We were all so impressed. She will calm your fears, deliver exactly what you discuss, and help guide you through the process. I highly recommend Lauren and her team at Garden Gate Florals! -NicoleSent on 11/20/2016
