    Made my Dreams Come True

    Florals were such an importance for me when planning the wedding. It was the way I knew my venue and static decor was going to come alive. I knew that Sherry and her team would be able to make my vision a reality from the first meeting! Sherry is the absolute sweetest. From the first meeting we had, I could tell she paid attention to detail, listened to my input, answered my questions with such a patience, and proposed ideas that enhanced what I was looking for. She was on the same page with me the entire way to the wedding. Not only am I so so thankful I went with Willow & Stems for my wedding as a florist, but I am so thankful we ended up doing the flower bar!! My guests absolutely loved it and felt so honoured by getting a corsage, boutonniere or hair pin. It was such an interactive thing to do during the cocktail party as well. Honestly, my guests still talk about how the best part of the wedding was the cocktail hour. Willow & Stems exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

    Cristi!!! I’m so grateful we were a part of your wedding day, you looked incredible, and the amount of love at your wedding was unreal!!! Thank you again, wishing you both a lifetime of happiness.

    Fun Flower Stand is an incredible addition to wedding

    Fun Flower Stand is an absolutely amazing service that adds so much value to weddings. I'm a wedding photographer myself and I've seen Fun Flower Stand in action before and it's absolutely magical to watch how happy and appreciative guests are in response to the service. Sherry is incredibly responsive, kind and easy to work with. I would recommend it in a heart beat!!

    Personal and Unique Addition To Our Big Day

    I first met Sherry at the Toronto Wedding Show and immediately fell in love with the idea of having a flower stand at our wedding. We were having a destination wedding in Muskoka and decided to do this instead of party favours. As guests arrived at the wedding / cocktail party, Sherry adorned our guests in flower barrettes and corsages. It was so fun looking out into the crowd and seeing this. Sherry was so professional and detail-oriented in all of our interactions. She made everyone that came up to her at the wedding feel comfortable – our little flower girl Paige hardly left her side. Years after our wedding people are still talking about how personal and unique this touch to our day was. Thank you so much Sherry for making all of our quests feel so special!

    Beautiful Flowers

    Sherry did a beautiful job with our flowers for our wedding. We were on the fence with whether or not to do florals for our very small wedding but I'm so glad that we did. All our guests commented on how beautiful they were and they really brought all our decor together. She had a really good idea of our vision and brought that to life. They added a beautiful pop to our photos as well. I would highly recommend Sherry and her team!

    Willow & Stems's reply:

    Thank you Megan!

    We were thrilled to be a part of your wedding day, it was such a beautiful day! Wishing you & Adrian a lifetime of happiness together.

    Amazing Florals for Our Wedding

    Sherry and the Willows and Stems team were amazing for our wedding day. I had contacted Sherry over a year in advance of our wedding date, and she stuck by me with every email, phone call or change that evolved with my vision. Everything came together perfectly and I was amazed at how perfect everything looked.

    Willow & Stems's reply:

    Becca,
    Thank you for such letting us be a part of your special day and for the lovely feedback! Lots of love to the both of you!

    Better than any of my Pinterest dreams.

    I can't begin to express how grateful I am for Sherry and her team of absolute rockstars. I found them at the Wedding Co. show and the second I walked out the door (with a floral hairpiece pulling back my hair from their booth) I sent them an email. Sherry returned my email so swiftly and we met for coffee. She was so attentive to everything I said and politely told me her opinions with honesty but never made me feel like my Pinterest dreams were out of reach.

    The florals alone were more magical than I could have ever thought possible (she made this magical backdrop of italian ruskis hanging from a birch pole, created gorgeous wreaths of greenery around each place setting, and don't get me started on the perfection of the bouquetttttts) , but I can't tell you enough how glad we are that we DID THE FLOWER BAR.

    If you're thinking about it... DO THE FLOWER BAR.

    Guests went NUTS over this and when I bump into people they still tell me what an incredible touch the flower bar was!!!! The incredible thing was that every age demographic and gender found something they loved at the bar. It warmed my heart to see people who had never met bond over the floral hairpieces they had, a great ice breaker for people who don't know many people at the wedding!!!!! Looking back on the photos and seeing everyone with their beautiful hairpieces, headbands, and boutonnieres makes me glow wildly, it made guests feel like they were A PART of the wedding as they matched the decor and bouquets seamlessly with these. It really included guests and made them feel involved in the wedding in such a beautiful way!

    Basically I could go on here for hours gushing about what a perfect experience this was. Florals were something I was really stressed out about... UNTIL I met Sherry. She was so laid back, easy going, honest and I trusted her implicitly. She took every ounce of stress out of this realm and put my Pinterest dreams to SHAME by making everything BETTER than I could have imagined!!!!!

    Excellent Florist

    I would definitely recommend Willow & Stems (Former Fun Flower Stand). Sherri was wonderful to work with. She was so accommodating and flexible when it came to developing our vision. She was clear and honest with what would work best. She did a fabulous job with the bouquets, boutennieres and setting up our venue! Thank you!!
