About

Their work lets nature take center stage: whether it be the upward arching stem of a delicate ranunculus or the bursting fragrant bloom of a peony.

    Stunning flowers and great service

    We would use riverwood gardens again and again for our flowers. They had friendly and kind service and brought us more then we could have asked for! We loved the creativity and personality that was in our flowers. They were breath taking.
    Thank-you for being part of our day

    Absolutely delightful.

    I cannot put into words how grateful we are to have had Riverwood as our florist! We (and all of our guests) were completely amazed by the beautiful flowers and arrangements, etc. I could not have imagined anything more perfect and as an added bonus, they are an absolute delight to work with!

    Amber was organized and professional when it came to our wedding florals

    Amazing flowers

    Riverwood Gardens was referred to me by my venue as they work closely together for many events. After reviewing their social media accounts, I was able to see all of their beautiful work, and I booked a meeting with Amber immediately to discuss. After meeting Amber, I knew instantly I wanted to work with her and the team. Amber's calming presence was super refreshing and greatly appreciated considering how overwhelming and stressful wedding planning can be. In addition to being great to chat and work with, Amber and the team are incredibly creative and talented. I do not have a lot of "flower" knowledge, so I let Amber take over completely, and it was the best decision I made. I can honestly say that my bouquet and flower arrangements were my favourite part of the day. My bridesmaid who is getting married next year was so impressed by the flowers at my wedding and has just partnered up with Amber recently for her big day! I look forward to seeing Amber and the team again next year! Thanks again for everything!

    Such an amazing and talented florist!

    We had planned on a New Years Eve wedding, and we actually did it! 10 days before the date, all of Ontario went into yet another lockdown. We told all of our vendors, family and friends that the wedding was off. We decided on Tuesday the 29th to get married on Thursday the 31st! We’ll have our party next year.
    Amber is so very talented at what she does, it’s really special. I mean, she has her own flower farm that her and her family live on! She thankfully, gave us a heads up before our actual floral order was supposed to be processed (the day the lockdown was announced) so we didn’t end up being out the cost of the actual flowers, PHEW! She’s experienced, organized, talented and very kind. She was also able to make me my last minute bouquet. It was so beautiful, and I’m having it preserved by Everafter Creates as I write this.
    Thank you so much, Amber. We can’t wait to work with you again at the end of the year!

    Creative & Stunning Florals

    Amber create the boutonniere for my husband and my bridal bouquet. Without having met her in person, and communicating by email, Amber was able to deliver above and beyond our expectations. She worked within our budget to create the most stunning floral arrangements, which we received many compliments on. We gave minimal guidance and just let her expertise and talent shine, and it really did! We could not be happier with her service, professionalism and creative talent. Highly recommended to everyone!!
    Thank you, Amber for making our day extra special.

    A perfect fit for our whimsical wedding

    Thank you for the beautiful florals you created for our day! I appreciated Amber's down-to-earth attitude - she is approachable and open to working with you to create something unique and creative. I gave very few 'requirements' for my bouquet and ended up with something absolutely stunning thanks to Riverwood. Thank you!!

    Beautiful wedding

    We wanted to say thank you to Amber and her team for a very beautiful wedding! Her team added many extra little touches that we didn't expect like adding flowers to our signing table or last minute additions to the bride's bouquet which really meant a lot to us. It was a pleasure working with Amber as she had a lot of great ideas we wouldn't have even thought of! Many of our guests complimented on how beautiful the flowers were and how it enhanced the already beautiful setting of our venues and church.
