    Incredible flower arrangements!

    Elese and her team at Murdochs are incredible! I knew they always did good work for other events but my flowers at my wedding were above and beyond any expectations that I had! I even had men from our catering team and the venue owner, saying they were some of the prettiest flowers they had seen for a wedding! Elese was so easy to work with too! She is so talented and passionate about what she does that she truly helps you create your vision down to every single detail. We got floral rings for part of our centerpieces and Elese even had me drop everything else off including the lanterns, candles, netting table overlap, etc. so that she could put them all together for us and bring them already ready to the venue! We not only got the flowers from Murdoch's but also rented their beautiful birch tree arch which was the perfect detail for our rustic and nautical Eastern shore wedding! I truly can't thank Elese and her team for how perfect everything turned out for our big day!

    Amazing Florist!!

    We used Murdochs as the florist for our wedding and they did an amazing job! Elise is incredibly helpful and creative. I dont know much about flowers but I showed her ideas of what I was envisioning for my wedding and she exceeded every expectation! Elise helped bring my ideas to life and the quality of the flowers was great. Murdochs provided the flowers for our ceremony and reception. I was so excited the day of my wedding when I saw everything set up, Elise and her team did an awesome job! We cannot thank Elise and her team enough for all of their help and hard work. I would recommend Murdochs to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

    Absolutely perfect! We showed them pictures of what we wanted and they worked with us to create designs that fit our budget. They created exactly what we wanted from the bouquets to the arch flowers and reception centerpieces. They were wonderful to work with!

    I love Murdoch's! This is a family owned and run business and we worked with Elise. She is extremely friendly, helpful, flexible, and creative! I am not a big flower person and thought for sure I was only going to be ordering bridal party bouquets for my wedding, but we end up doing the works with flowers! Elise walked my mom and I through our wedding piece by piece from which honored guests should wear flowers, to petals down the aisle, the centerpieces. During our first meeting, I brought a few pictures of some ideas I had for the bouquets and she was able to put together a small sample immediately using the picture and adding her creativity to it- I was immediately sold on the bouquet! She sat for hours with us brainstorming center pieces with my mom and I (we were going to try to do the centerpieces ourselves, but were not quite set on an idea). Elise was able to take pieces of our ideas and before I knew it she was pulling out palm fronds, sea shells, and orchids and put together a centerpiece so unique and beautiful we were all speechless. The quality of flowers at Murdoch's is beyond perfect and you can tell they know what they are doing when it comes to growing flowers. Elise was very easy to work with, and prompt in her responses to us. She arrived to the venue on our wedding day well before I did and everything was set up by the time I walked into the venue. I would recommend Murdoch's to anyone who wants high quality flowers from creative, caring florists at a very reasonable cost!

    What can I say Elise is the Best! She is very easy to work with and very flexible didn't mind at all when we changed our minds.I wouldn't ever use anybody else. Murdoch's did our wedding flowers 35 years ago and our oldest daughters flowers 13 years ago! The bouquets are always so full and beautiful! Very good prices on everything believe me you won't find this quality at these prices anywhere else!

    Murdoch Florists did an amazing job for our outdoor tented wedding this past weekend. Our colors were yellow and white, and the variety of vases and flowers she picked were beautiful. They really tied the entire thing together wonderfully.

    I was blown away by my flower arrangements! I don't usually love the flowers at weddings, but I was so impressed with Murdoch's work. Additionally, they were incredibly accomodating, promptly returned calls, were very friendly and were reasonably priced.

    I am so happy with my overall experience working with Elese.I received the leases information from our wedding coordinator at the Kent Manor. Elese was incredibly accommodating and very patient during the entire process.during the majority of the time I was in Illinois and Elise still was able to work with me. I sent Elese pictures of the flowers that I wanted for the centerpieces, the cake, the boutonnieres and corsages. Elese came very early the day of the wedding to set up the chuppah for our ceremony and she decorated the posts with ivy. She was very reasonably priced with the chuppah rental and she included the ivy for free. The boutonnieres were perfect and were exactly like the picture I sent to her. The corsages were so elegant and just perfect. Elese decorated the wedding cake in such a beautiul way. Many guests commented how beautiful the cake looked. I am beyond pleased with my experiece working with Elese. She exceeded my expectations and did a fantastic job.Her flowers are amazing and breathtaking.

    Elise is so wonderful. I met with her twice before my wedding and she was so great when it came to making my poorly described vision into reality. When it came to things like colors, type of flowers, and what to put where, she nailed it. I love the beautiful arrangements that she put together and I could not have asked for anything better!

    I worked with Elese for my wedding and she was extremely helpful! I wanted to do all of the low centerpieces on my own with my mom and Elese advised us on how to care for our peonies and hydrangeas. She did all of the high centerpieces and the church flowers. Everything exceeded my expectations. I sent her pictures of all the types of bouquets, centerpieces, and church flowers I wanted and she recreated them perfectly! I highly recommend her!!!! I was so pleased.

    Our venue (Silver Swan Bayside) recommended Murdoch Florist, and we were very happy working with them, and they offer good value compared to other florists I looked at. They are a family-owned business and are very knowledgeable about everything flower-related. The only thing I wish that they did was communicate more over e-mail when I started working with them; I think they prefer phone, but closer to the wedding, I started communicating with them more through e-mail (and they were mostly responsive) since their shop hours didn't really mesh well with my work hours.

    I was most impressed with how everything turned out the day of the wedding--the bouquets were gorgeous (especially mine!), and everyone remarked how gorgeous the chuppah was that they built for us.

    They also went above and beyond for us the day of the wedding because I had asked them to supply small orchids for my bridesmaid's hair, but had forgotten to ask them to come to the hotel so that our hair dresser could pin them in; they were just planning on going to the venue to set up. I realized my mistake the morning of the wedding, so frantically called them and they came to the hotel, no questions asked (I felt really bad).

    I would highly recommend Murdoch Florist for anyone's Eastern Shore or Annapolis-area wedding.

    Murdoch Florist did a great job with everything for our wedding! They finished our centerpieces and they were above and beyond what we expected! After we booked with Elese for our wedding it was a little slow getting a response, but when I got what I needed it was professional and friendly! I would definitely recommend them to anyone in the area for a great job with a great price!

    I felt welcome at the initial consult I had with Murdochs. They were flexible in me making changes to my order multiple times, even though I frequently lessened the amount I was ordering. I gave them a general concept of what I wanted and did not see the arrangements until the reception. When I saw the centerpieces, I was stunned at how beautiful they were. Murdochs did a more amazing job than I could have asked for myself. They completely took my vision and did a great job! They delivered the arrangements straight to the venue. The only issue I had throughout the process was lack of communication on their end. A few weeks before the wedding I became worried because I hadn't heard from them, so sent someone in person to check on the status of my order (I live far from them). When my contact got there in person, Murdochs was already on top of my order, with everything ordered, in process, and marked on the calendar; they just hadn't let me know. They were also well priced.

    The most amazing flowers ever and extremely well priced. When we sat down and went through what i wanted in the way of flowers mom had me list everything so we could get a quote for any and everything i would want and then scale down from there to meet the budget. Well when we received the quote with everything listed it was still under my moms budget!!! The communication in the beginning was slow but i highly recommend this florist and we have used them for other floral needs since.

    Amazing but slow response

    I went to a few weddings on the shore where Murdoch did such an amazing job and was super excited to find out they would fit our budget. I met with them right away but it took over a month to get a quote, I was told I would have it within the week and had to send a few emails to get a response. Once I got the quote I wanted a quick revision with a updated quote, it took almost two weeks for any kind of response. at this point I had already found a booked another vendor. Their work is beautiful and the people are so nice I just didn't have the time to wait weeks and weeks for any kind of response.

    Murdoch Florist delivered me gorgeous flowers on my wedding day. They were just what I wanted, despite my ability to communicate my vision very well. I didn't book my florist until a little over a month ahead of time, so I was fortunate Murdochs was able to do my wedding. They delivered and set up all of the flowers on the wedding day, which made everything so much easier. She worked with me to find pictures of bouquets I liked and made many suggestions to help me along. It took a long time for her to give me the final contract, but everything got done on time. I recommend their products!
