    Susan is absolutely amazing!!! I thoroughly enjoyed having her as my wedding planner. She went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed for my wedding. She understood that I had a budget and she did everything she could to help me stay within that budget. Everything went smoothly the day of the wedding and it is mainly thanks to her as she knew my vision and made sure to coordinate with all the vendors. If you’re looking for a wedding planner, I would highly recommend Susan! (Oh and as a former florist, she knows a lot about flowers which is a big plus!)

    Susan did our floral arrangments for our wedding 8/20/16 and all the floral arrangements turned out so beautiful! I was in LOVE LOVE LOVE with my bride's bouquet and all the centerpieces. Susan was helpful at our consultation and listened to everything that I wanted and gave her recommendations on things I didn't know about. It was helpful that she put together a website with the types of flowers she was going to use at our wedding and gave a rough estimate of how much everything was going to cost. I would recommend Susan to anyone and everyone who is looking for a florist for their wedding and/or any event!

    Susan provided beautiful arrangements for our wedding! As soon as I met her I felt confident in her experience and knowledge. I was a very casual/hands off bride. I provided Susan my color scheme and some direction and let her run with it. On the day of my wedding I was pleasantly surprised with all of the arrangements. Susan also provided day of coordination services for an additional fee. I can't tell you how nice it was to feel relaxed knowing that Susan had everything covered on my big day. I should also mention that her prices are some of the best in town. We wanted to keep our budget around $2800 and she was able to do it!

    Susan provided the perfect arrangements for our wedding day. I was thrilled with how everything turned out. She had outstanding knowledge of her craft and was able to provide helpful suggestions to get the look I wanted. My loose, cascading bouquet was PERFECT. You won't regret choosing SW Floral & Wedding Design for your big day!!

    Susan was so easy to work with and so flexible with her schedule. She actually kept her shop open a little later for me on a SATURDAY to work with my schedule. My flowers were EXACTLY what I asked for (actually a little more beautiful than I imagined). I wouldn't change a thing. I can't thank Susan/ Accolades enough. They are very affordable. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone!

    Susan of Accolades florist did a FABULOUS job with my wedding arrangements. I researched several other florists in the area and I selected her services because she provided a great product for a reasonable cost. She was also the only florist I spoke with who was able to give me a photo gallery of each type of flower she would be using in each of my different arrangements. So I was able to better visualize what each arrangements would look like and give her feedback on any changes I wanted. I also provided my own vases for my centerpieces and she was very flexible and accommodating about using what I provided and made it work really well. She was also very flexible about delivery and setup and connected with the reception venue directly to make sure she had all the info she needed about timing, location, etc. And, most importantly, the flowers were absolutely stunning. She "got" the look I was going for right away and took a lot of inspiration from my Pinterest pages, as I wanted, and I was extremely pleased with the final results. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a florist in this area. You will definitely be happy with the decision.

    Susan had never made a bouquet like I requested. My mom and grandmother both walked down the aisle with my grandmother's bible with an orchid on top. I wanted something along the lines of that and she did a great job with what I wanted! It was perfect. Thank you, Susan for your hard work!

    I didn't start looking for a florist until 3 weeks before my wedding. Susan was great! She understood my need to work fast and helped schedule a meeting with a time that worked for me. She also prepped for the meeting with the color scheme that i had sent in advance so I didn't feel like I was wasting time during our meeting.

    Having worked in the space before she understood my needs and helped me pick out the appropriate, in-season flowers for the event. On the day of, all the bouquets and flower arrangements were beautiful and in place when I arrived. If you have an event that needs flower arrangements I would highly recommend Accolades Florist as you couldn't ask for better service and product.

    Susan is the ultimate florist! For our wedding ceremony and reception we requested extensive floral arrangements. She ensured that everything was on time and placed exactly as requested. Her assertiveness to go above and beyond is an understatement. I would recommend anyone-actually everyone to her for providing floral arrangements on any occasion. I will most definitely contact her again for any future events.

    It was a pleasure working with Susan on my daughter's wedding. She was professional but very helpful, she was very clear on what she would provide and the end result seemed to exceed the expectation. She was in and out of the venue on the day of the wedding with everything done very well. I would recommend her without any reservations.

It felt so personal and I love that feeling when your vendor solely focuses on your event. My flowers were absolutely gorgeous. I could not recommend her enough!!

    What a wonderful experience! Coming from a bride who was very confused and budget-concerned about flowers, Susan really provided an amazing experience. Susan was so knowledgeable about exactly what I wanted for my centerpieces, and provided EVERYTHING to make my vision a reality. The delivery was timely, and Susan was immensely responsive. The flowers were of beautiful quality and Susan provided so much insight about how to ensure the best bang for my buck (such us, placing bouquets in the bridal parties centerpieces to cut down on costs). The only artificial flowers used were my flower girls, and those looked amazing! Susan really helped make my wedding's flower arrangements a breeze and a great experience.

    Our flowers took my breath away. They were everything and more than I could imagine. When I met with Susan I didn't know anything other than I wanted pink roses. She quickly came up with a great combination of flowers. She provided an isle runner and had rose petals laid down. When I say the ceremony site on the way to take pictures I was truly in awe. I literally had to take a second to stop from crying not to mess up my makeup. Thank you Susan for working with me every step of the way!

    Susan's work was absolutely beautiful. The bouquets and centerpieces were exactly what I wanted and what we discussed. I received several comments about the arrangements during and after the wedding. Some of the centerpieces lasted 5-6 days after the wedding. Susan's prices are also extremely reasonable - she was able to create the look I wanted within my budget. I recommend Susan to any bride.

    My daughter & I loved working with Susan @ Accolades Florist. She responded immediately to all of our inquires and was very flexible and understanding when we changed, added and or deleted arrangements. The flowers were beautiful & prices more than reasonable! I defiantly will use her services if & when my older daughter gets married! I have already recommended her to a co-worker!

    I was so very pleased with the beautiful floral arrangements! The church looked beautiful and the reception site was breathtaking. Everything I was envisioning and was thinking of for flowers was carefully thought of and everything turned out wonderfully! I highly recommend SW Floral Design at Accolades Florist!!

    Thank you for the review, Sara! I enjoyed working with you and your mom (and Josh) this past year as you selected your flowers. Using the silk peonies in the arrangements and your bouquet was a great idea - they looked real! It feels like an end of an era - the last "D" daughter is married -- however, I am so happy for you and Josh and wish you both many blessings and happiness in the years to come.
