Putting the Wow in Flowers

“I had the most lovely experience yesterday buying a dozen roses for my partner’s birthday. I wish I had caught the lady’s name that worked with me so that I could recognize her here. She was very helpful in selecting the perfect vase, and arranged the most beautiful rendition of the classic rose bouquet. I loved how she spoke about her family; and how wonderfully everyone worked together when consulting about the best local shop to find a greeting card. Thank you Blooms by Vickrey! I’ll be back!” — ALAINNA G.

“I met Sue at the Liberty Forge open house and booked her for my April 2019 wedding soon after. She is a wonderful woman who has an eye for beautiful blooms and can work with any budget. I was planning my wedding from a distance and mostly communicated with Sue via email and an occasional visit. Our bouquets were full and lovely and the flower girls had more than enough rose petals to scatter down the aisle. I couldn’t have been happier with the flowers and I would recommend Blooms by Vickrey to anyone. — MEGAN DAWN F.

“They [centerpieces] were amazing; I loved, loved, loved them! Thanks again.” — JANET A., A GIFT OF SMILES

“We used Blooms for our wedding and were absolutely thrilled. We had a beer-themed wedding and requested to have hops incorporated into the design; it was awesome. While we did our own centerpieces, Mark and his staff put together two beautiful arrangements that were fitted into barrels and used as part of the arbor. They were exactly what we had pictured – if not better. Hops also was incorporated into the boutonnieres and my bouquet. They were punctual the day of the wedding and efficiently set everything up. I also was happy that the bouquets arrived in water because it prevented wilting before the ceremony and pictures. They even stayed beautiful throughout the evening and the days to follow. Everything was perfect and I wouldn’t have had them change a thing.  Great to work with! — LIZ V.

“If you have not had Blooms by Vickrey make an arrangement for you yet, YOU NEED TO! Everything that they do is beyond amazing. The owner is friendly, funny and enthusiastic. I absolutely love going [into the shop] and seeing what new and unique creations that they can make.” — MIKAELA von K.

“The flowers for my wedding were absolutely amazing.  I’ll admit that I was nervous when I was told that the blooming branches that I had originally wanted were out-of-season.  However, I put my faith in Sue and I am so glad that I did.  The centerpieces were stunning!  I had many compliments and I was sure to pass along your name to everyone who asked.  Everything turned out better than I could have imagined and I didn’t have to worry about anything.  I loved, loved, loved the flowers and you did a phenomenal job.  Thank you so much for everything.” — LAURA C.
