Sally prepared all of the beautiful flower arrangements for my wedding. She gave me plenty of input into how they would look and which types of flowers I would like (although I left most of that to her expertise) and came up with the perfect bouquets for me and my bridesmaids!
I love orchids and she did a spectacular job incorporating them into the bouquets and boutonnieres. She delivered the flowers to the wedding site (2 hours away from her shop)and they were as fresh as if they had been picked moments before;there wasn't a torn petal or wilted leaf to be seen.When people see our wedding photos, one of the things they always ask is "who did your flowers?"
I highly recommend Sally and essence...of flowers to anyone who wants their flowers to stand out for any occasion. She really captures the customer's personality.
Working with Sally made it so easy to pick out and arrange our wedding flowers! She is so friendly and knows her flowers! Everyone loved our calla lilies! They were just beautiful!!! Thank you so much!!

While planning my wedding there were so many decisions...but the one sure thing was that essence...of flowers would be designing my bouquets.Sally is the most creative and talented florist I have ever met. Working with essence...of flowers was outstanding every step of the way,from the initial consultation,to the big day! I came to Sally with a basic idea and she completely understood my vision and delivered it to the next level! Every piece was absolutely perfect. I was astounded when I saw the flowers for the first time. Everyone still asks who designed our unbelievable wedding flowers. I recommend essence...of flowers for designing flowers for every occasion..but there is no question that Sally should be the first and only choice for days as magical as a wedding day!

We only knew of one place that could design unique and special arrangements for our son's wedding ,Sally's essence...of flowers.The church flowers were breathtaking,lining the aisle for the bride to walk down. They were displayed on a post at each pew. Sally also designed the bride's bouquet and bridesmaid's bouquets of fresh spring flowers.We displayed our wedding cake in a new bird bath arranged with fresh flowers. We were so pleased and happy with the results.

We needed extra special flowers for my brother's funeral. Sally used delphiniums of various colors and arranged them so beautifully. I can to this day remember the beauty of those flowers on his casket and it brings me peace and comfort. Sally really cared about the customer and our family's wishes at a difficult time.
Sincerely, Nancy McGraw
There is never any doubt,who I call when I need extra special flowers for any entertaining event or party I have.Sally is very understanding and easy to work with.The flowers for both of our daughter's weddings were unique and breathtaking.Sally and Tom were both there making sure everything went smoothly. I entertain for the holidays,setting many tables with fresh flowers.Each and every arrangement is fresh,unique and fun.
Sally from essence...of flowers did the flowers for my September 1st wedding.The flowers needed to be done by Thursday evening in order to leave for the wedding site on the North Shore.The flowers were beautiful-and they stayed beautiful and fresh looking throught the 6 hour drive up to the North Shore; the moving around,and made it to Saturday-the wedding day! I really only told sally that I wanted bright colors and something fall looking...and when I saw the flowers-they were perfect! :) Sally used silk flowers to make a pomander for my flowergirl and a flower collar for our dog..our other "flowergirl" :) The silk flowers looked like an exact replica of the real flowers (mine and the bridesmaids)-and nobody could tell the difference.We had many compliments on the flowers and how well they looked after 2 days and much travel!:)
Sally did a terrific job!!

It was the easiest and most fun time picking out my wedding flowers with Sally. We picked out some lime green and purple combinations of flowers for my bouquets and corsages and she added pizzazz to them. Everyone at the wedding commented on how unique and beautiful my flowers were. Thanks essence, for composing such a memorable "centerpiece" to my wedding party!

It has been a wonderful last 2 days at essence...of flowers as we have had cooler temps in the 70's and low humidity. That is about to change this weekend with the mid summer heat about to descend upon us.It has reminded me how much the seasons of life change and yet stay the same.
