WOW!! – Dear Anne,
What can we say but "WOW" . There are truly no words I could find that are strong enough to tell you what a magnificent job you did in creating a fairytale environment for my daughter's wedding reception. The flowers were unbelievable! I cannot put into words the feeling I got when I walked through those doors and saw the tables decorated so skillfully and beautifully; there could be nothing more WOW than what I witnessed. Our guests were in awe. Our thanks to you and your staff in creating a wonderful atmosphere for a memorable evening.
Thank you so very much!
Ralph and Kathy Philomeno
The absolute best! – I was very nervous about meeting with florists for my upcoming wedding. I had no idea what i was looking for or what to expect. The minute I walked into Ten Pennies, I knew I had found the best - just read any other reviews or take a look at the thousands of awards on her wall . Ann and Chuck were amazing. Not only were they able to bring my vision to life in a matter of minutes, but Ann was very accomodating with my budget. Above all else, Ann was incredibly warm and helpful. She put me at ease right away. I cannot wait to see it all come together on my wedding day.
MADE ME FEEL AT HOME! – I recently booked Ten Pennies for my wedding next June and what a firecracker Ann is! Not only did she make me feel extremely comfortable, but she knew my vision for my wedding EXACTLY. I am so excited to see the final product come to fruition and am so thrilled that I went with Ten Pennies!!!!!
Philadelphia's Best Florist – I was just at a wedding at Society Hill Sheraton this past weekend and saw such AMAZING and UNIQUE flower design that I had to find out which Florist did the decor. Since I have a wedding coming up on June 11th I had to get someone nailed down soon. I saw Ann from Ten Pennies and she was absolutely SPECTACULAR!! She knew exactly what I wanted and she worked within my budget. She also gets to know who you are so your wedding will be unique to you and your needs...not the same old arrangements that everyone has. USE TEN PENNIES they made this beautifully easy!! SO HAPPY!!! Thanks a bunch ANN :)))))
Absolutely Amazing! – Our daughter's wedding was just 2 days ago and I had to sit down and write my review of Ten Pennies Florist immediately. The Four Seasons Ballroom was transmored into the most MAGNIFICENT fairytale Ballroom that our daughter wanted! EVERY DETAIL was there...from the AMAZING centerpieces to the beautiful candles ...to the white dancefloor...to the gel lighting...to the uplighting...to the place card table. There aren't enough words to totally capture it all.
If you could have seen the guests faces when the ballroom doors were opened up....PRICELESS!!
Thank You Ann ...so very much!!!!!!!!
THE BEST florist in the WORLD – My daughter's wedding was this past Saturday night at the Sheraton in Society Hill. The Ballroom in that hotel is gorgeous on its own, and it is huge. Ten Pennies was the florist we used for the wedding. To say that they did a beautiful job decorating the ballroom would be an understatement. A more accurate statement would be that they MADE THE ENTIRE WEDDING THE MOST SPECTACULAR, BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, MAGICAL, AMAZING event of our lives. After the ballroom was decorated by Ten Pennies, with the world's most brilliantly beautiful, gorgeous flowers, and after the draping, candles and lighting that Ten Pennies did- we all were stunned with the magnificience of it all. It was truly like we were in a dream that went BEYOND anything we imagined; BEYOND everything we wanted. The flowers, draping, and lighting were done to perfection. The entire wedding was an absolute dream come true. Working with Ann Catania was wonderful. Over the months that we planned this very formal black tie wedding, there were times when my daughter thought she wanted to have the decor be something else, and everytime we'd meet with Ann she would write down what we wanted and help us sort through our thoughts. But I kept wanting something different than my daughter wanted, and Ann helped us work it out over the months of planning! The result was a spectacular ballroom, spectacular bouquets, way beyond the beauty we imagined and wished for. We had guests in attendance at the wedding from all over the country; they've been emailing and calling and texting me for the last two days raving about the beautiful flowers and lighting and candles and draping. Even at the brunch the following morning, where some of the arrangements from the wedding were displayed, a woman came in to ask me questions about the flowers; she was an event planner herself, who had just flown in from New Zealand!!! Ann and Ten Pennies made our wishes come true. We will never use another florist; we will always use Ten Pennies and we think that anyone who would not use Ten Pennies is crazy!!!!! I will never be able to thank Ann and all of her wonderful workers at Ten Pennies for making my daughter's wedding the most beautiful, spectacular, magical night of our lives.
Wedding Flowers – I can not find the words to explain how amazing Ann at Ten Pennies is. From the minute my mom and I walked in we knew we were in the right spot! We didn't even have to think for a second about whether or not to book Ten Pennies for my upcoming wedding in June. We were sitting with Ann for maybe 5 minutes and she knew exactly what I wanted without me opening my mouth! She made this experience amazing and I would recommend Ann & Ten Pennies to everyone I know! I can not wait for my wedding cause I know the flowers & arrangements are going to be breathtaking!
Sad day blossoms into a reunion! – My experience with Ann at Ten Pennies is so personal that it turned the saddest day of my life into such a meaningful and memorable reunion. So much so, I just had to share my story.
Recently, my mother passed away very unexpectedly. My family and I were, as you can imagine, devastated. When it came time for the dreaded funeral planning, we were referred to many local SJ florists, but we quickly thought of our former neighbor who opened a flower shop in Philadelphia. I remember being about 10 years old and Ann lived across the street from us. I quickly became so attached to her; waiting by the window every day for her to come home from work. She was so gracious and inviting. She would always welcome me in and we would spend time chatting and baking together. I remember being so proud to wear the apron her mother had made that she always let me wear. When she eventually moved, I was devastated.
Now, 30 years later, I truly feel my mother guided us through the entire planning process of her funeral down to the florist, our dear friend, Ann. Ann spent so much time with us talking about old times, sharing many funny stories and most of all comforting us, making this part of the process so heartfelt and pleasant. Before leaving the shop, Ann stopped us, told us to wait a minute and went to the back of the shop. She came back out with the very same apron I wore many years ago in her kitchen. I cannot express into words what I felt at that moment. I knew that this visit was a reunion and that our friendship was rekindled on that day.
When we arrived at the church and saw what Ann did for us, we were all speechless (which doesn’t happen much with my big Italian family!). The roses were absolutely stunning. Never in my life have I seen such beautiful roses - every single one of them was perfect! Nothing short of spectacular! After telling our friends and family about our trip to Ten Pennies, many others decided to call her for the funeral. All of whom were also very pleased with the work and attention to detail by Ann and her staff.
Ann, I can’t thank you enough for all you did. You are truly an unforgettable amazing person who will forever have a special place in my heart!
Love, Tina and the entire Aubry family.
"Most Amazing Wedding Flowers" – My husband and I recently got married at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia and used Ten Pennies as our florist. We could not have been happier. The venue looked amazing - the centerpieces were full and vibrant and the cake decorations looked as though they were right out of a bridal magazine. My bouquet must have weighed 10 pounds but it had the most beautiful roses I have ever seen. Guests kept asking if the flower decorations were real because they looked so perfect. Hats off to Anne and her crew for a job well done!
beautiful party work – i have witnessed ann catania at work and she does a great job directing what is necessary for a wonderful party/event. she puts the brides at ease and is very helpful. ann is knowledgeable/helpful. designers and installation crew - just great.
