    Exceptional service

    Darlene is very accommodating to work with and is conscious of your budget without skimping on details. She made sure I was stress-free leading up to the wedding and I love how she sent pictures asking what I thought of the bouquets, etc. I would absolutely recommend Garden Inspirations for your next wedding or event!

    It was such a pleasure working with Darlene for our wedding this September! She completely understood my vision and it turned out amazing! We received so many compliments on our flowers. She even had great ideas on how to reuse our aisle arrangements for our centerpieces which saved us money on flowers. I would recommend her a million times over! Thank you Darlene!

    Darlene was absolutely wonderful! Everything she made for our wedding was stunning. She was SO responsive, flexible, kind, and you could tell that it was her main goal to make our wedding stunning. Weddings are expensive and finding the right vendors can be really tough, I can honestly say that we LOVED Darlene and the florals. Her prices were very reasonable and the quality of work was outstanding. She did my matron of honor’s wedding, and I’m so happy she was recommended to us.

    Darlene was amazing! She is very detail oriented, and very attentive. Throughout our planning process, she sent ideas for florals and inspiration pictures that were so helpful! A week or two before the event, we changed our mind on an arrangement and she was extremely flexible. She arrived promptly to the venue and set everything up expertly! I would highly recommend Darlene.

    Darlene was absolutely amazing to work with from the first second we spoke! She is patient, accommodating, creative, etc. I could go on and on! I live in CA and got married in OR and Darlene was always extremely helpful with ideas. The flowers were beyond my expectations and I couldn’t recommend Garden Inspirations enough! If you want gorgeous flowers and an easy, hassle-free experience, contact Darlene!

    We had the most beautiful wildflower wedding with this wonderful business! The pictures are turning out absolutely stunning and my bridesmaids were obsessed with their floral crowns! She even threw in a complimentary bout for my husband because she knew we were on a tight budget! I would for sure recommend Darlene and her company to anyone looking to have beautiful flowers for their wedding or special event!

    When I first met Darlene she was prepared with pictures of her previous work, and new ideas for my wedding. Since I don't know much about flowers, I had some ideas of what I wanted, but I wasn't sure how to put them together. Darlene proved to be both passionate and knowledgable about her field of work, and was able to take all of my ideas and combine them in a way I never could have imagined. Leading up to my wedding I was scatter brained, indecisive and not always prompt on responding to emails. Through all of this Darlene was very attentive to my needs, and showed professionalism through all of her patience with me as I changed my mind multiple times, and asked many questions!

    On the day of my wedding Darlene drove to my venue, set up all of our floral arrangements and centerpieces, and presented me with my bouquet. Her work was gorgeous, and I could not have asked for anything more perfect. She listened to all of my wants, and then made them even better than I could have imagined. I would absolutely recommend Darlene to any future bride or groom. My husband and I are so thankful that she helped make our biggest day yet so beautiful!

    Darlene is wonderful!! I cannot say enough nice things about her and her service- she was by far my easiest vendor to work with! She helped us stay within our budget and gave great advice on different pieces that could help save money with giving the same effect we were looking for! Our flowers turned out better than I even expected and I received so many compliments. I would recommend her time and time again!

    Darlene is absolutely amazing. My flowers were better than anything I could have ever imagined. Watching her in action was genuinely heart warming. Seeing how much time, dedication and hard work went into making the flowers was inspiring. Darlene really knows her stuff and takes passion in ever flower she prepares. She really made my day special. I highly recommend her a million times. Thank you so much Darlene, I couldn't have done this without you.

    Darlene is really sweet and a great pleasure to work with. We had our wedding about one week ago and she was probably the best vendor we've had the honor of working with. She made everything very worry-free and simple for us. Which we truly appreciated. My husband and I could not have found a better professional to take care of our ceremony and reception flowers.

    Darlene is amazing! She was so much fun to work with, she is budget conscience, and really wants to make your vision come true. She gives you many options and asks questions that you don't even think of. She delivered everything to our wedding venue and set it all up, I didn't have to worry about anything. I would 100% reccomend her to any bride!

    From the beginning Darlene was the most responsive florist I had inquired with and that stayed true to the very end (I live out of state so we did everything via email and we held a FaceTime call just to have one "face-to-face"). We were on a very tight budget and the final product far exceeded my expectations. I described what I was looking for and sent inspiration photos and she was able to create a proposal that was within my budget telling me how I could save on cost here and there. She also helped coordinate an arbor rental including set up, take down, and decorating it. She suggested using the arbor flowers on the head table after the ceremony which hadn't even crossed my mind. The day of the wedding she brought petals for the ceremony aisle that we hadn't even discussed but really completed the look of the ceremony site (at no extra charge). She really thought of everything for the entire day and helped make it look like we had more flower decor than we had paid for. She was mindful of and stayed within our starting budget throughout the entire process and never tried to push anything extra. The only constructive feedback was that the size of the rose(s) in the bouts and corsages were quite large (about double what I expected). The men's bouts were a bit top heavy which would sometimes overwhelm the magnet holding it causing them to lean which we ultimately fixed by pinning in a second location. A smaller rose would have given the same effect. Otherwise everything was absolutely perfect and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Garden Inspirations!

    Thank-you very much for the thoughtful review! It was my sincere pleasure to work with you both on your special day! I appreciate the constructive criticism on the bouts and corsages and will endeavor to have smaller roses when possible. In your case, I really wanted to ensure that the colors matched so I didn't want to introduce another rose that was a different color. Thank-you again!

    Working with Darlene was an absolute Dream! She truly values her clients and really takes the time to understand exactly what you are looking for. I was an out of town bride and she quickly responded to every e-mail and was more than patient with any changes I had to make. My Flowers were absolutely Gorgeous and one of the Highlights of my Wedding.

    Darlene was absolutely incredible. She listened to everything I wanted/helped me figure out what I wanted when I couldn't quite put my vision into words and generally provided phenomenal suggestions and guidance. Sh was always cost conscious as well. And of course the flowers were absolutely perfect! The bouts, bouquets, flower crowns and centerpieces were gorgeous!

    If I could rate Darlene higher than a 5.0, I would! From the very start she matched my enthusiasm, listened to every idea I had, suggested great ideas of her own, worked with my budget, and overall worked tirelessly to give me the wedding flowers of my dreams. So kind, so full of passion, and so hard working, I think I will actually miss working with her.Really, don't hesitate in hiring her.
