The best experience (The Knot) —
"The moment my daughter and I met Bonnie we knew we were in good hands. Her work was perfect in every way. The flowers were PERFECT. She guided us to use flowers that were going to be both beautiful and long lasting. But that is just the beginning. She was so helpful. I was a little worried as I really was trying to keep to a reasonable budget and look outstanding. Bonnie made the entire process so pleasant. My daughter had brought pictures from Pinterest and she was able to combine them into something spectacular and for a price I was really happy to see and everything my daughter wanted was there. Of course we made a few changes but that did not knock her off her game. She realized a few days before the wedding that it was probably going to rain so she changed the flowers to accommodate an inside archway. She e-mailed my daughter to tell her what she planned to do. Of course they were excellent. She has a warm, happy way about her. Our first impression was spot on. We had a sample made for my daughters shower. We sent some friends to pick them up. They were so impressed by how cute her shop was, and how magnificent the flowers looked. The day of the wedding I had so many compliments about the flowers, specifically how classy there were.I personally will never use another florist. THANK YOU BONNIE"

"Working with Bonnie at Secret Garden Florist was absolutely amazing. I had a very specific vibe and vision that I wanted for the wedding, but I didn't have it down to the flower type or even specific colors of what I wanted it all to look like, and I had a relatively small budget. Bonnie asked great questions to understand what I would like and what I wouldn't. Ultimately, how Bonnie interpreted my vision was absolutely spot on, and I couldn't have hoped for more beautiful flower arrangements that perfectly reflected what I had hoped for. She was amazing at keeping within my budget, and gave recommendations for other ways in which we could keep costs low (which items were better to purchase vs rent, etc) and let us ship any of our extra supplies directly to her so that we didn't have to make an extra trip to drop everything off. Services aside, Bonnie is also incredibly warm and easy to work with, and I couldn't have hoped for a better florist to work with. Thank you so much for helping my day be perfect!!!"

"Secret Garden not only captured my vision, but exceeded my expectations. I had an idea of what I wanted for my wedding, I found some pictures and showed Bonnie. I had five brides maids and wanted my favorite calla lillies for everyone. For my bouquet, I wanted something over the top. My flowers arrived day of wedding, fresh, on time, in stands that held each bouquet. When I seen the flowers for the first time I truly wanted to cry. What a beautiful job! I had the best flowers I've honestly seen in any wedding. The highlight of my wedding. My center pieces were beautiful and unique. As the bride, I seen a few ladies fighting for them :) thank you Secret Garden for your expertise, creativity and professionalism."

Easy and Beautiful (The Knot)

I think a lot of couples have no clue what they want when they start looking for flowers. We had NONE.
So, over email Secret Garden sent me pictures, like my very own personal Pinterest, just to start the discussion rolling.
Then when we met, she bent over backwards to get us anything we wanted. And, she helped us fill the place up with flowers without going overboard.
Our centerpieces were a hit. People were fighting over them at the end of the night.
They worked seamlessly with the venue, so there were zero snags.
I don't think we could have possibly made a better choice.
One more thing: We are a same-sex couple, and with some vendors we could sense an awkwardness or a hesitancy. Of course, these are not the vendors we chose.
Secret Garden treated us exactly the same as they would have treated a straight couple. Maybe even better. This is a big deal."

"Bonnie at Secret Garden Florist was absolutely wonderful from the first meeting with her to having our flowers delivered and set up for our wedding. She made our day extra special with the beautiful rose bouquets and made sure to help us stay in our budget while still getting exactly what we wanted. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking to make their day extra special with beautiful bouquets! I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful...Thank you Bonnie!!!!!"

"Bonnie was so wonderful to work with! We ordered all of our flowers from her: bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, centerpieces, altar decorations, boutonnieres, corsages, and petals. She helped us decide which flowers to use and how to arrange them in centerpieces while maintaining my original vision. We decided to provide our own vases to keep costs down and she really worked with us in this way too. The end result was spectacular!! Her pricing was fair and her work was simply amazing. I loved my flowers and every centerpiece was taken home by a guest. Thank you so much Bonnie!!"

"What more can I say other than STUNNING! The flowers came out beautiful! When my husband and I returned back from our honeymoon the flowers were still fresh as ever more than a week later!! Thank you again!!"

"Bonnie's work is just beautiful! I was so happy to find Secret Garden because it was close to home, but after sitting down to talk with Bonnie about my wedding flowers, I knew I would look no further! I ordered my bridal bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, petals, altar decorations, and centerpieces from Bonnie and all were breath taking. They arrived well before we were ready to leave for the ceremony and stayed fresh for days after the wedding!! Although I could have found a florist that was slightly less expensive, I could not have found one of the same caliber for the same value. Thank you so much Bonnie!!"

"Bonnie is one busy lady, and I can see why! Her work is beautiful, I met with her several times to get my fall floral bouquets just right, she was patient and took her time to thoroughly discuss my options. She even texted picture the week of the wedding of our flowers and the quality, right down to the morning of and her progress to the finished piece. She made me feel very comfortable and the flowers were gorgeous!! Mine, as well as my girls bouquets were beyond what I ha envisioned"

"I walked Into secret garden one day delivering food. Bonnie asked me how my day was going and I proceeded to tell her how I was in the doghouse in my relationship. Not only did she give me some womanly advice, she quickly made me an absolutely beautiful bouquet and did so free of charge!! Needless to say my significant other was more than happy, as was I, to be out of the doghouse of course. Bonnie is a great person and is the best florist around!! You can tell she thoroughly enjoys doing what she does, it shows I'm her work and because of that she's won the awards to backup the talent!! I wouldn't go anywhere else for my flowers!!! Thanks again Bonnie!!"

"I ordered a bouquet for my friend who had a baby girl and Beth, the woman I spoke to on the phone, was absolutely lovely. She took the time to make sure that they had everything I wanted to send in stock and was very pleasant to speak with. I would highly recommend this florist"

Katie S.
"A HUGE thank you to Bonnie for doing my wedding flowers, at a bit of last minute notice. My bouquet was absolutely beautiful and better than I could have ever imagined. The bouquet for my maid of honor was perfect as well, along with the corsages and boutonnieres. Bonnie was accommodating and professional...if a certain flower was out of season or very pricey, she was upfront about it. I never felt like she tried to push me in one direction or another...simply guiding me based on my vision."
