    Phenomenal Flowers and a Hidden Gem

    My husband and I recently got married in Downtown Durham and used The Wedding Woman for our flowers. They were SO beautiful and I did not want to put my bouquet down! But the real champion here was Jane Utley, founder and our day-of coordinator. We were hesitant about whether or not to use a coordinator before we found Jane. But we are so glad that we did.
    As a truly type A personality, I couldn't imagine giving up any responsibility. But Jane did an excellent job keeping everything organized and on point throughout the day, so that we were able to relax and enjoy every second of our wedding and reception. The two of us couldn’t be happier with the job she did. We HIGHLY recommend Jane and her team!

    Gorgeous “Gatsby” style wedding!!!

    Jane and her group designed all the flowers for my daughter’s Art Deco “Gatsby” style wedding. She met with the bride, groom and and listened to what we wanted but also offered helpful suggestions She is very knowledgeable was easy to work especially when we decided to change some centerpieces. Her prices are excellent. The bouquets and centerpieces were absolutely stunning. We asked for the “wow” factor and she exceeded our expectations!!

    Jane created beautiful flowers and made the day so much easier

    Jane was fundamental to an easy day for me. Not only did she manage the day of doing everything from bringing me a glass of champagne to keeping vendors on track, when we walked into the venue I was blown away by the flowers. She 100% understood my vision and she brought it to life. This would not have been the day it was without Jane. Even with the impending snow storm, she kept calm and and moved everything along.

    The Wedding Woman is AWESOME

    We were three weeks out from our wedding when we hired Jane and her crew. They were incredible, efficient, and easy to work with as they seamlessly pulled out wedding together in such a short time period. From decorating to directing, they have everything and more to help you have the wedding of your dreams (just like us!).

    Everything turned out beautiful! Jane put together the most beautiful arrangements for our special day, even when i had no clue what exactly i wanted. I also liked that you could rent decor, which saves alot of money on buying decorations for a one time use! Definitely recommend

    Jane was great to work with! We showed her some ideas that we liked and she took it from there. She did the flowers for the ceremony and the reception and it was absolutely beautiful! We are so glad we found her through wedding wire and even luckier she was open on our wedding day. We highly recommend working with Jane and her crew!

    She was willing to work with us to try and get as close to budget as possible as well as sending model photos to make sure she had planned exactly what I wanted for my flowers. On the day of, she showed up and took care of everything.

    My daughter’s wedding day was amazing and we have The Wedding Woman to thank! I knew when we first met with Jane that she was the right choice for us. My daughter is an out-of-the box thinker! Jane listened to every idea my daughter had and then responded with how she could incorporate those ideas into a plan! The Wedding Woman’s creativity brought the ideas to life! The flowers and arrangements were truly unique. The bright colors were beautiful and matched the wedding colors to a tee. Jane even built an arbor exactly like my daughter wanted! My daughter’s job transferred her out of town four months prior to her wedding, which made communications with Jane a little delayed. Jane was very patient with us all! Jane was also our day of coordinator and did a fabulous job! I did not worry about anything and the wedding was flawless! With the bridesmaids from all parts of the U.S., they were a bit chatty, but Jane worked through it and everyone knew what they needed to do! Many attendees told me it was the best and most organized wedding they had attended! The Officiant said Jane was excellent and knew what she was doing! As mother of the bride, if you want to enjoy your daughter’s special day, you need Jane! I truly was relaxed and enjoyed the day from beginning to end! Thank you Jane and team! Hats off to a beautiful, spectacular day!

    Jane was the perfect choice for my wedding. She has been in the biz forever and really knows her way around a wedding. She takes the time to meet with you before hiring to hear what you are thinking, drafts a proposal which you can tailor to your wishes, and makes sure to keep in touch with periodically to keep you updated on what she is doing. She even made a last minute boutonniere in two seconds flat the day of my wedding because we were short. She doubles as a florist and a day of planner should you need one, and has TONS of additional decorations you can choose from to bring your vision to life. I'm so thankful to have worked with her, she really helped make my wedding everything I wanted it to be.

    I couldn't have asked for a better florist. Not only was Jane more than willing to work within my budget, she took my vision and completely ran with it - in the best way possible! Her floral arrangements were above and beyond my wants and expectations.

    In addition, she let me know the week of my wedding that she had some leftover garland from a wedding the previous weekend and asked if I wanted to use it - Talk about a great surprise!

    If you have the chance to work with Jane, do it! I promise you will not regret it.

    Jane was a pleasure to work with! My husband and I went a non-traditional route and had a private ceremony with a small reception a few weeks after. She was very flexible with the different approach we were taking. We hired Jane to do our decorations and be our day-of coordinator and she did a fabulous job with both. I had a vision of lots of greenery and minimal flowers, and Jane was very receptive to my feedback. The bouquet she put together was absolutely stunning, I was able to replant the succulents and am still enjoying it almost two months later. During the event she helped things flow flawlessly, almost as if she wasn't even there! I would definitely recommend hiring Jane to anyone else.

    Jane was simply wonderful! She not only acted as our florist but also our day-of-coordinator. For both tasks, she simply exceeded all of our expectations and made the day so fun and stress-free for us. She also worked with our budget and met with us numerous times in person to discuss our needs, ideas and concerns. She is amazing! We cannot recommend her enough to anyone who is currently looking for florist and/or day-of-coordinator. We loved Jane and so will you!

    Jane was amazingly helpful and her pricing was very reasonable. I contacted her with less than a months notice and she was able to get me everything I needed. The bouquets were beautiful and we had a Christmas wedding so we used a lot of greenery. All of the greenery looked perfect and was exactly what I wanted! It definitely made my wedding beautiful!

    Jane was an absolute pleasure to work with! While I was in the market for very specific flowers and a vendor that also worked with local flower providers, I found myself extremely overwhelmed. I almost thought what I was looking for, was maybe too much. I knew, I just wanted someone who worked with local florist so just Incase a flower arrived dead they would be able to be within driving distance to replace it!! This was a HUGE fear of mine because I work in the delivery business and hiccups like this occurr often and there’s not much you can do if the flowers are provided by international vendor and your wedding is the next day... it made me so anxious! But Jane assured me she worked with local providers! I was practically sold immediately, as I had sat down with 6 people before her who told me to “suck it up” pretty much. Her competitive prices are way better than the heavy hitters, but heavy hitter quality for certain! My wedding was beautiful I’m so thankful we chose Jane!

    Jane and her team are AMAZING!!! It is very nerve racking at times planning a wedding, but her and her team always knew how to guide us through the process...even when design ideas changed throughout the year. She was very flexible and always available with feedback on ideas or to answer questions. Hands down I would use her and the team again and recommend them to everyone!!! They totally exceeded my high expectations!!!!!
