Ambar was so kind and very helpful in a such a short time. I'm so grateful with her art that made it a beautiful bouquet the way I wanted.

Amber did an amazing job at making our floral vision come true! She was professional, reliable, quick to get back to me and accomodating.

Cool Green and Shady we love you!
I honestly cannot say enough about Amber and the CGS team. They came highly recommended to me by two friends and I can absolutely see why. Flowers were an important part of the day for me and Amber listened to everything I said and created flowers so perfect it was as if she had read my mind. We received countless compliments on our flowers and continue to over a month later. Everything was beautiful, they worked with us on our budget, were incredibly responsive and on time with delivery and pickup. I just wish there was a way to keep my bouquet alive forever because it was so beautiful. I keep looking Thank you Amber and everyone at CGS who made our day a success! I will be recommending you to everyone!Sent on 19/12/2018

Thrilled with my wedding flowers!
I still can't get over how beautiful the flowers for my wedding were! I didn't have strong opinions about particular flowers, just my colour scheme. Amber was more than willing to work with my budget to execute the vision I had for my wedding day. When I arrived, I could NOT believe how beautiful the venue looked! Amber knew exactly what we needed to complete our decor and the setup/deliver was totally seamless. All my emails were responded to promptly, and you can tell Amber is very organized. Paperwork was clear, and pricing was straightforward. I would absolutely recommend Cool, Green and Shady as a wedding florist!Sent on 23/10/2018

Exceptional service, beautiful florals
Amber and her team were amazing to work with. I am not a person who knows my flowers and Amber KNOWS flowers. She started showing me pictures of different blooms and she could tell from the look on my face whether I liked them or not before I even responded. As easy as she made the planning process, I was even more blown away when I saw the flowers on my wedding day. My bouquet and all of the venue arrangements were more beautiful than I could have imagined. Thank you Amber for making the process so simple and producing such beautiful results!Sent on 27/09/2018
