    The Gateway Florist was professional, responsive, and very easy to work with. We had an intimate ceremony and just needed flowers for the bride, groom, and parents of the bride. They were happy to accommodate our needs, and delivered the flowers for us exactly when we needed them, even calling ahead to confirm they were on the way. The flowers were stunning. Exactly what we wanted. My bouquet served as the table decorations at the restaurant for our "reception" in the vase they delivered with the order. I enjoyed my bouquet for days after. (My mom said her wrist corsage was the nicest she's seen, and she once worked in a nursery arranging flowers.) I highly recommend The Gateway Florist!

    I loved the bouquets you provided for our daughter's wedding at the Naval Academy on Saturday!!! I have found a new rose in ranunculus. I like it so much better, actually, and the blue hydrangeas and Jasmine made it a spectacular bouquet!!

    Morgan, you helped us so much with your suggestions. I never dreamed that the hydrangeas were flown in from Holland. So gorgeous!!!! And thank you, also for delivering balloons to the venue. You rock!!

    Theresa, it was so wonderful to meet both of you. I won't hesitate to suggest your shop for the other two midshipman I know, that will have an opportunity to have their weddings at the academy.

    Thanks so much!! You helped make it a really beautiful day for all of us ?

    Take care, Mary H.

    I worked with Morgan from Gateway Florist for my courthouse wedding. I showed her a picture of a bouquet I liked from Pinterest, but most of the flowers weren't in season. I was also on a really tight budget. She worked within both of those constraints to make MAGIC! My bouquet was perfect, it was better than anything I saw on Pinterest. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I don't have the pictures back yet, but once I do I'll post a few! I'm looking to get it preserved somewhere because there's no way I could ever throw this away.

    Caroline at Gateway was amazing. I just needed a bridal bouquet and a few boutonnieres and I was STUNNED with how beautiful they turned out. I showed Caroline one picture of what I was looking for...white flowers, lots of greenery and rustic. When she initially emailed me the quote, she had a dozen dahlia's for my bouquet...I thought that was a lot, since I just wanted greenery. She re-assured me that they would be different sizes and would deliver exactly what I was looking for. What Caroline delivered was above and beyond! It was GORGEOUS. I couldn't have been happier and HIGHLY recommend Gateway.

    I worked with the Gateway team on my wedding bouquets etc and could not have been happier! Caroline was in charge of designing my flowers and did EXACTLY what I wanted. Teresa provided oversight and was prompt to answer any question I had. I got married on a VERY VERY hot July day. We had 3 hours of pre-wedding formal photos followed by the ceremony and reception. All the flowers looked just as great as they did to begin with at the end of the night. I would highly recommend Gateway for any floral occasion!

    The Gateway Florist was incredible. They helped us to stay within our budget and were very flexible with timing to meet with us. The flowers were more incredible than we were expecting and everyone at the store is incredibly friendly. We had a few sprays on our gazebo which turned out to be so beautiful and set the scene for our wedding. I highly recommend the Gateway Florist to any couples looking for a florist for their wedding!

    Gateway was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding (and engagement party!). I went in with a million different ideas and Caroline executed them perfectly by combining them all into exactly what I had envisioned, even better than I had envisioned. Caroline, Teresa, Morgan, Matt & Emma were wonderful! We worked directly with Caroline for our wedding flowers and she was on top of everything until the very last minute to make sure everything was perfect. Our wedding was on Christmas Eve and Caroline and Morgan even delivered the flowers themselves, even on the holiday! I cannot recommend Gateway more! They are amazing, and the outcome was stunning.

    The Gateway Florist did a phenomenal job creating all that I could have ever envisioned for my dream wedding; ceremony and reception! The flowers were gorgeous with eye popping colors and wonderful design. We met with Gateway to go over our choices and that was it, full execution without any hiccups along the way. We didn't have to worry about a thing, they were professional and very responsive. We were married 2 weeks ago and my bouquet is still looking as beautiful and fresh as ever on my kitchen countertop. The reception centerpieces were the talk of the party. An innovative and eclectic approach made all the difference to what typically would be your “run-of-the-mill” centerpiece choice. Their talent sparked some appreciated conversation. Every girl wants their guests to remember their special day and refer to it with positive feedback, well I got it!….I need to thank The Gateway Florist for that!

    We wanted a small and very casual wedding, with flowers that looked as if they had just been picked from a garden. That's exactly what Gateway delivered. They didn't steer us into anything but the vision we had; in fact, they helped us to realize our vision.

    Gateway was really great. We had very simple bridal and flower girl bouquets but they were awesome at matching ribbons, getting the perfect corsages for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom, delivered the flowers on time and were very easy to work with. The pricing was very reasonable as well!

    Mark and Cindy are the owners and they were lovely to work with throughout my wedding flower experiences. They took the time to meet with me on several occasions and went over everything I wanted for the wedding. I hired them for my bridal bouquets, bridesmaid bouquets, corsages for mothers and grandmothers, and all flower decor for reception: centerpieces, cake decor, and extra table decor for sweetheart table. They listened to everything I requested and delivered all of the flowers on time! They feel like family by the end of your time spent with them. They are very nice and talented florists! You will not be disappointed if you go with their services! They are affordable and will work with your budget! If I ever need flowers for any occasion, I will be using them for any floral services! 5-STAR ALL THE WAY!

    Gateway Florist's owners and staff were exceptionally professional. They were extremely helpful in meeting our requirements for our daughters wedding. The table arrangements were a perfect match of the brides selected colors and design. Extra effort was exemplified as they found the "perfect" rose for the wedding. The brides bouquet was beautiful and very functional. Flowers are a very integral part of the wedding and having someone like Gateway Florist understand your desires and wishes and turn them into the perfect arrangements is a work of art. Their attention to detail was exceptional and their assistance was gratefully appreciated.

    I couldn't have been happier with my flowers from Gateway Florist. Most florists in the area would not take smaller weddings. I was not ordering centerpieces and did not have a large bridal party so did not meet the $2000-3000 minimum of most florists in the area. Gateway was more than happy to work with me and created beautiful bouquets and altar arrangements. They really understood my modern, minimalist style. Even though I was getting married in the spring and blues were my colors, I did not want peonies and blue hydrangeas. They were able to suggest flowers that better fit my tastes and were able to follow the inspiration photos I brought. Even though mother nature did not cooperate and I couldn't get the one flower I really wanted, the arrangements were still beautiful and I couldn't have been happier.

    I love The Gateway Florist!! I was about as undecided as a bride could be. I went into The Gateway with just my wedding colors in mind, and I was taken care of from there. Cindy was so sweet, and Donna and Lisa were fantastic!! They captured my vision perfectly -- they even created a variety of centerpieces for me just so I could have everything I wanted. My bouquets were elegant and beautiful. At my reception, everyone was talking about the flowers and taking pictures of them. From my first meeting to my wedding day, The Gateway Florist made everything easy and perfect!!

    Gateway was recommended by our caterer and we are very glad we followed that advice. Cindy was wonderful to work with. We had no idea what kind of flowers to get for our same-sex wedding but Cindy had great ideas and helped us decide on just the right blend of simplicity and elegance at a very reasonable cost. We would highly recommend Gateway for any special occasion.

    Flowers were not that important to me for the wedding, and I went into it knowing very little about the different types. Like many brides, I just had some pinterest images of styles I thought looked nice for the bouquets. Gateway did a great job! They start off saying that they treat you like family, and coming out of this experience I can attest to that. Cindy, her husband, and Donna were all wonderful, at our first meeting, over the phone, and even day of I felt very taken care of. There was a small mix-up with delivery time, but they made up for it by showing up in person to deliver and with the quality of the bouquets. They were beautiful, and I couldn't have asked for anything more. They even created a female flower pin for all of my sorority sisters that were in attendance, they took our sorority flower and wrapped ribbon with our greek letters around it. It was something so small, but so special. You definitely pay for the quality and relationship with this florist, but it is worth it!

    Donna from Gateway Florist just recently did the flowers for our wedding on July 28, 2012. They were absolutely STUNNING! She worked with us to choose bouquets, boutonnierres, corsages, reception centerpieces, and colors to match our pink wedding theme. As someone that doesn't know much about flowers, she was such a great help in making suggestions. She even attached charms to my bridal bouquet for us in remembrance of my grandparents. If you are looking for wedding flowers, Gateway Florist is a great place to choose!
