    Responsive florist

    Samantha/Pocket of Posies did our personal flowers and altar arrangements for our wedding. They were fantastical. She was able to use the flowers we requested and kept within our bright colour scheme. Samantha really respected our budget and even though we did not have a relatively large order she still worked with us. We’d highly recommend Pocket of Posies to be your wedding florist.

    Stunning flowers & greenery

    Samantha at Pocket of Posies was extremely helpful every step of the way. She adapted so well to the changes we had to make as a result of COVID-19, and was super easy to work with. She brought all of my flower dreams to life.
    The table settings was a greenery and candle tablescape that fit the room perfectly.
    On our arbour, the flowers complemented the outside chapel.
    The bouquets were exactly perfect.
    I would highly recommend Samantha to anyone.

    Above and beyond

    Samantha was absolutely amazing to work with. I’m not huge into flowers generally but she took my vision and ran with it, creating beautiful bouquets, boutonnières, corsages, and ceremony and reception decor. She made suggestions for details that I didn’t even know I wanted but brought more of the feeling I was looking for to our day.
    Flowers were one part of the wedding I didn’t stress about because I knew she had it under control.
    I could not be happier with our decision to hire Samantha for our wedding!

    Wedding flowers with the most lovely scent

    We just got married and Samantha was our florist. The flowers were so beautiful and smelled amazing - everyone commented on it! She's also very hands-on and helps to make sure everything is perfect the day of.

    Beautiful style, service and experience!

    We had the pleasure of having Samantha from Pocket Of Posies Floral Design for our wedding on NYE 2017. We met with her based on recommendations from very reliable friends, and we hired her based on her clear expertise, good pricing, and how she understood our taste for what we were looking for. She delivered all of the flowers on the big day (including multiple locations in the area), ordered flowers we requested that were special to my husband's side of the family, and beautifully arranged all of the bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and much more for great prices! Definitely recommend her!

    The process of selecting a florist really intimidated me, initially. I was a very hands-on bride. Particular with my vision, but not in a grandious sense. It was important to me that our vision was brought to life, but that our costs remain reasonable.
    I had a 14 person wedding party, so right away I knew that I would need to be flexible. When I met with Sam of Pocket of Posies, what really struck me was her desire to be the flexible party. She immediately loved what I had in mind (earthy, whimsical yet simple, with touches of tartan, deep navy and thistle)
    We created a concept, Sam looked into in-season options, guided me through ways to give the florals multiple use throughout the day (altar arrangements turned to accents at the reception venue, bridal party bouquets as alternates to head table centrepieces)
    Over the 8 months that i worked with Sam, she was kind, quick to respond, knowledgeable and dedicated. What floored me the most was the actual arrival of the flowers on the morning of my wedding. They were entirely perfect. It was like she completed a sentence that I never even started. And, she wrapped me in a big hug. In the middle of a crazy household of bridesmaids and flower girls and mothers and photographers, she brought me back down to planet earth with her professionalism and gentle personality. And then, she was off to our second drop off point, to deliver the boutineieres, alter pieces and extended family corsages.
    It was a wonderful experience and I couldn't recommend anyone more highly. Thank you, Sam!

    Wonderful Experience

    Samantha created the bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, fireplace greenery and centrepieces for our wedding. The quality of the flowers and greenery was amazing and the designs were beautiful. Samantha also helped us with candles to create the vibe we wanted. Meeting with Samantha was very easy and she was able to show us ideas to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. The flowers were delivered on time and they also ensured everything was picked up after so we had absolutely nothing to worry about!

    Beautiful flowers!!!

    We hired Samantha for our wedding just the other weekend. She was lovely to work with leading up to the wedding. When the flowers arrived the morning of the wedding they were exactly what we had discussed. The flowers were beautiful! I was so happy with how the bouquets/boutonnières/corsages/ceremony and cake flowers had all turned out!
