Would not recommend – Geranium Lake didn't bring enough flowers which lead to the deconstruction of other floral arrangements to make other arrangements work. (Had it not been for my wedding planner's direction to do so, I would have been missing some vital pieces.)
I don't know what would have happened had I had Geranium's planning services. I'm assuming it would've been an easier fix considering they're a floral shop, however, I would've expected them to be on point considering they're "full service."
Overall, wouldn't not recommend. It's unprofessional to be "missing" items.
Don't put down a deposit without adding the order yourself – Unfortunately, I would not recommend Geranium Lake. I felt comfortable Kim would do a great job with our wedding flowers, but the estimated order was not added correctly. The total estimate was exactly what we wanted to budget, but something seemed wrong since the bouquets were more expensive than I planned. Luckily we did not leave a deposit and I went home to review the order and found it was missing $225 worth of flowers. So, either the owner does not know how to use a calculator, or something not so nice was going on.
Bad experience, will not recommend to another bride – Very bad experience. After months of planning, diagrams, and meetings with Kim. The decorations were nothing like we had discussed. Instead of white organza she placed blue organza on the gazebo. Arrangements for the ceremony table were very small and nothing like we had discussed or I had paid for in addition those were never placed in the ceremony table, and so I did not have any flowers on the ceremony table. The organza swags were very poorly done and were ugly. I went with an expensive florist to assure quality and I was very disappointed. I will not recommend her to another bride.
Pretty Great – Kim (owner) is fantastic. So little work on my end to communicate my vision for our wedding. She didn't do exactly what i asked :) but it still looked stunning. You would be lucky to have all of your vendors do the job Kim did. Of all the folks we chose to work with, Kim was one of the best. And let me tell you, find a good vendor (caterer, bridal consultant, photographer etc.) is very hard to find. The wedding industry is a total racquet - and they just want your money. Kim didn't make me feel that way.
Perfect Flowers, but Delivery Problems – Geranium Lake Flowers creates beautiful flower arrangements. For our garden wedding, Geranium Lake was able to be imaginative in making the most gorgeous bouquets I have ever seen! The owner was able to completely capture what we had hoped for our wedding. The flowers were fresh, colorful, unique, and perfect! I could tell that the owner had truly listened to our desires before creating our flowers.
We did experience difficulties with the delivery process. Some of the items we ordered were left behind at the store. Geranium Lake did what it could to remedy the situation, and seemed geuinely apologetic. There was stress on our wedding day because of the forgotten items and because only one delivery person was provided, which caused many of our family and friends to help with the heavy lifting to ensure all the flowers went where they belonged.
Geranium Lake Flowers creates the most imaginative and most beautiful flower arrangements that are ideal for one's wedding. However, their delivery process needs some improvement.
These florists like to create fun, hip, contemporary designs, using just about anything from nature. – In Short
Geranium Lake's floral arrangements are artsy yet structured, filled with fresh garden favorites like lavender, peonies, lilacs, tree branches, vegetables and fruit--definitely not the carnation and baby's breath bouquets of yesteryear. Memorable pieces include peony-filled overhead bouquets ("kissing balls") and a rustic chuppah (arch) constructed out of birch trees and hydrangeas. The store is small, with plenty of fresh cuts for on-the-run bouquets.
So Unique! – Geranium Lake did flowers for my wedding four years ago, and it was magnificent. Worked with us to combine our ideas and their creativity. We have used them ever since for any flower-demanding occassion. Delivery is easy, and their service is great. When they deliver to my wife's workplace, the receptionist always know who the flowers are for because they are always so unique and different!
One word: artistry – At Geranium Lake, they are floral artists! Colors are bright, arrangements are fresh, unique, and stand out from the crowd. I work across the street so I originally patronized them for convenience. Now I would choose them over another florist any day because of the quality of their work and their great service.
You can't go wrong! Gorgeous flowers, skillful and creative designers, great selection, and no matter how busy they are someone will drop everything to help you. Try them!
Wedding Flowers – Geranium Lake did my wedding flowers and did a wonderful job. Everything was fresh and smelled so good. They were easy and fun to work with, and helped me decide on exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend them.
