Testimonials What Client's Are Saying About Us

  • “We had a great experience with Dorothy. I had a very different idea for flowers and she did a great job incorporating what I envisioned with a practical plan and always made sure I was satisfied. Couldn’t be happier!” – Chessa via Wedding Wire


  • “Dorothy has true gift and was such a pleasure to work with. She understood my vision and was a true gem throughout the entire process. She did an absolutely amazing job and we have received SO many compliments on how beautiful the flowers were. Every single thing that was on my wish list she made happen.. I was honestly ecstatic when the flowers arrived. My bouquet was even better then I ever envisioned. So, so glad I chose Dorothy. If I did it all over again, she would be a vendor I would absolutely choose again.”- Carla via Wedding Wire

  • “By far the best price quotes I received from anyone! She did an excellent job with the bouquets. I loved them and got so many compliments regarding them. So glad i went with her and will recommend her to family and friends! Only complaint is at times she took awhile to respond to emails but otherwise everything was great!” – Kelly via Wedding Wire

  • “Dorothy is amazing!! she truly loves what she does and understands that weddings can be expensive and does not try to use that against you!! Not only was she reasonable but she made my beauty and the beast wedding stand out to perfection!! I can’t express how beautiful this was.” – Ashley via Wedding Wire

  • “Thank you for making our wedding look perfect! The flowers were stunning, the church decorations looked beautiful and the reception décor looked amazing! We cannot thank you enough, everything was wonderful!” – Karen Orth via Wedding Wire

  • “You would be a fool not to hire Dorothy as your wedding florist. She is fantastic. We were working on a tight budget due to the fact that we live in Dallas and were getting married in IL. She worked around our schedule to meet with us when we were in town (in spite of the fact she had been hit by a tornado just a few days before) and provided us with exactly what we wanted for very little money. Other florists gave us quotes for twice what she did. She is very understanding when it comes to your budget. She came up with beautiful arrangements that suited our budget. The flowers are very high quality. We were married a week ago, shipped our flowers from IL to Dallas since I wanted to keep them and my bridal bouquet STILL is beautiful. The roses and callas are just now starting to wilt slightly. A WEEK LATER! Bottom line: Hire this woman! She is wonderful and so is her work! Dorothy-Thank you so much for adding those special touches to our special day… I do not have enough words to express how much we loved our flowers!” – Barb via Wedding Wire

  • “Dorothy did a great job with the centerpieces and bouquets. They were beautiful and stayed fresh and held up throughout the day and night. She has a lot of other items available to rent, such as pillars and arches, which added a beautiful touch to our ceremony. I gave her low marks for responsiveness because initially, when I was inquiring about her services, she was prompt and answered my questions quickly and professionally. However, after we signed the contract, she took forever getting back to me via email whenever I had a question for her. Sometimes a few weeks would go by before she responded; this included several versions of invoices. I really had to ask a few times. She really has great ideas and floral knowledge, but make sure EVERYTHING, I mean EVERYTHING you guys agree on is written in the final contract, or she may forget about it.” – Mylinh via Wedding Wire

  • “When I walked into the room set with the backdrop for our wedding ceremony, with pillars, cascading flowers, drapes, lighting, etc. the effect was stunning. It transformed a basic restaurant party room to help create an intimate, magical moment.

    The beautiful table flower arrangements also exceeded our expectations. Dorothy worked with my budget, listened carefully to what my vision was, and added her special touches to make everything perfect. Giving her creative license and relying on her expertise proved to be the right choice!” – Michele via Wedding Wire
