Cassy & Trevor ~ August 2, 2020

The flowers and service I received for my wedding from Barb were beyond spectacular.  After being told from another florist the flowers I wanted weren’t doable because they wouldn’t last, Barb assured me it was possible and made the most beautiful bouquets and centerpieces that not only lasted the entire evening, but for weeks after!  During the planning process, Barb was friendly, professional, and easy to work with despite changes needing to be made.  The quality and detail of her work was true art, and I will be returning to Blooms & Beyond for any future floral needs! ~ Trevor & Cassy, Langley, BC

Blooms & Beyond brought my wedding vision to life!  Thank you for taking my ideas and delivering exceptional bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages.  Planning from another province wasn’t easy, and your willingness to help in any way was so appreciated.  I was thrilled with every respect, from pricing to delivery.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  It was a perfect day!  ~

I want to, again, thank you for such a fantastic job and coming to our rescue in the last days possible.  It’s not easy pulling a wedding off in two and a half months, but we did it!  Thanks too for making it so beautiful! –

Kirstie & Chase ~ September 14, 2019

Barb was incredibly friendly and invited me into her home for our first meeting.  She spent lots of time discussing flowers.  My thoughts and her creativity definitely helped me decide on what flowers to use.  She was so thoughtful and honest about what would look good together, and offered cheaper options if I picked something very expensive!  I also was given some tiny picture frames that included pictures of my late grandparents in them, and Barb easily attached them to my bouquet.
When I showed up on the day before the wedding with the wrong size buckets to pick up my greenery in, she quickly agreed to lend me hers so I had one less thing to worry about before the big day.  I was so appreciative.  Would 100% recommend!  She did an incredible job.

On a personal note:  Hi Barb, thanks again for all your hard work on my wedding florals.  I loved them all!!  They turned out so perfect!  And I’m so happy you included my little pictures I gave you, as I know it was slightly last minute. Thanks again. –  
Chase & Kristie, Vancouver, BC 

 

Chloe & Indy ~ September 5, 2019

On FB:  Barb Konrad is another godsend!  Her prices are reasonable and she came up with lots of solutions for us to stay within our budget.  She is so organized and checked in every now and then to make sure everything went off without a hitch.  Her arrangements were so beautiful and smelled amazing!   She was so personable with pinning boutonnieres and rounding everyone up so I didn’t have to worry about it.  Would 100% use her a million times over!

On Wedding Wire:  Beautiful flowers, great price, and AMAZING experience!  Barb was helpful every step of the way!  She was super responsive to emails and was a big help pinning boutonnieres and giving out bouquets.  Everything was beautiful and smelled amazing!  She was an absolute godsend and I will definitely be using her again in the future! –
Indy & Chloe, Chilliwack, BC

 

Tammy & Michael ~ September 3, 2019

My wedding flowers were absolutely beautiful! And Barb was so wonderful to work with!  We planned our BC wedding from home in Alberta, and Barb was easy to communicate with.  She took our colours and our description of look and feel, and created the most stunning flower arrangements!  Everything tied together wonderfully.  And we loved that she was able to source our special requests for lilies for our moms, that she was able to deliver to us on our wedding day, and help out with set up.  Highly recommend Barb and Blooms & Beyond!  Thank you so much Barb! – Michael & Tammy, Red Deer, Alberta

 

Kassandra & Darren ~ August 24, 2019

I first met Barb at her house to go over everything because I wanted more details.  She had everything I needed to see at her house.  She gave me ideas and recommendations.  I had so much trust in her with my flowers.  I didn’t see them till I showed up to the venue with just enough time to get out of the car and walk down the aisle.  I was in love with them and couldn’t stop looking at them.  Perfect amount of colour for my pictures!  Thanks Barb! – Darren & Kassandra, Aldergrove, BC ~ See more of this wedding on FB

 

Laura & Andrew ~ August 10, 2019

Amazing experience!  Loved working with Barb so much!  Can’t say enough good things about how wonderful everything turned out.  The bouquets were stunning, even better than I thought!  Our initial meeting was amazing and made me feel so comfortable about what we were paying for and what we got.  I loved how Barb spent time with us, figuring out what we wanted and explaining what each flower would look like and making sure it showcased a family heirloom.

On a personal note:  Hi Barb, I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely flowers for my wedding!  They were spectacular! –

Lauren & Travis ~ August 3, 2019

Amazing flowers and fantastic to work with!  Barb made incredible bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages!  She also provided flowers & greenery for our table décor.  She was an absolute pleasure to work with.  Because my husband and I live a few provinces away from our wedding venue, we conversed via phone.  She had me on my laptop googling the flowers we were talking about using, which was great to visualize.  I sent photos of the style I wanted, and she hit the mark perfectly!  The flowers were of beautiful quality and very fresh too.  She delivered them directly to the venue which was very helpful (no running around for them).  She pinned on all the boutonnieres and handed our bouquets to us just before the ceremony.  We also rented vases from her for our head table for the bouquets to sit in during dinner.  Very happy with our experience! – Travis & Lauren, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

 

Margot & Jacob ~ July 20, 2019

Amazing! We had the best experience.  Barb from Blooms & Beyond did an amazing job with our floral arrangements!  She kept within our budget and everything was gorgeous!  Just how I envisioned all of the arrangements to look.  She was helpful and taught all of her tricks for attaching the boutonnieres and swags to the arbour.  And she was on time.  I will be recommending her to everyone! – Mission, BC

 

Lauren & Steve ~ July 12, 2019

Beautiful flowers with wonderful customer service!  Our flowers were absolutely beautiful.  I loved all the bouquets, table flowers, & ceremony décor!  Would highly recommend Barb!

On a personal note:  Hi Barb, I just wanted to send a thank you for everything you did for my wedding.  The flowers were stunning and I am so happy with how everything looked!  Thank you again.  We will highly recommend you! – Steve & Lauren, Chilliwack, BC

 

Alisa & Nico ~ July 6, 2019

Amazing customer service and beautiful flowers.  Barb was wonderful to work with.  At our first consultation, my husband and I had a very broad idea of what we wanted.  Barb took the few pictures and colours we had with us and helped us to create a wonderful flower vision of our wedding.  You could really tell that she knew what she was talking about when it came to flowers.  She had so many ideas about different flower types and had great books and visuals to show us what the flowers looked like and what colours they came in.

Barb was also very budget conscious and gave us great suggestions for flowers and greenery that could be used to give us the look we wanted for a reasonable price.  There were a few flowers like orchids and roses in my bouquet that we wanted to splurge on and she was also ready with great ideas for incorporating them.  We also had some other flowers that were sentimental to us and she easily brought them into the arrangements she was designing for us.

The flowers on the day of were absolutely beautiful and lasted for days after the wedding, even in the July heat.  Barb came to the venue, set up all the décor flowers, and pinned all of the guy’s boutonnieres for a very reasonable price.  Leading up to the wedding, the flowers were items I was not worried about at all.  I knew Barb was going to do an amazing job on our flowers, and she created absolutely beautiful arrangements for us. –

Anna & Brennan ~ July 5, 2019

Such a lovely experience! Blooms & Beyond was amazing! I asked for recommendations on Facebook for flowers and I was not disappointed!  Barb is lovely to work with and is very thorough.  When we initially met to talk about flowers, she covered absolutely everything, even things I had not thought about.  She was very clear and very helpful.  I  learned lots while talking to her!
My flowers turned out lovely on the day of my wedding.  I asked for predominantly sunflowers and they were beautiful!  I got many compliments on the flowers.  I would definitely recommend Blooms & Beyond! 

On a personal note:  Barb, I just want to say thank you so much for the amazing job you did.  I got so many compliments on the bouquets and other arrangements.
– Brennan & Anna, Aldergrove, BC

 

Tracy & Steve ~ June 30, 2019

Barb is absolutely unreal!!!  Best experience!  Barb was absolutely amazing!  For our first meeting, I went to her house and she took the time to provide tons of options to stay within my budget, but still capture the look I was going for.  Throughout the year of planning my wedding, I had a change of heart on my vision a few times.  She took the time to call me and go over all the details.  The day of the wedding she arrived at the venue to set everything up and handed me my bouquet before the ceremony.  I was absolutely blown away with how amazing the arrangement was.  I would highly recommend Barb! – Steve & Tracy, Abbotsford, BC ~

Sylvie & Riley ~ June 16, 2019

Blooms & Beyond did an amazing job on the bridal party bouquets as well as the centerpieces for the reception tables.  Barb is very easy to work with.  She delivered everything to the location of our choice on the day of the wedding, and was able to fulfill our wishes in regards to style and flower colour choice.  We highly recommend Barb for your flower needs. – Angela Hamm – Mother of the groom, Chilliwack, BC

 

Siobhan & Andrew ~ June 8, 2019

Fabulous flowers for my wedding day!  I had my bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres made by Barb at Blooms & Beyond and she was fabulous! Our flowers were gorgeous, she was friendly and helpful, and was at my venue before I arrived all ready to go with a smile and a hug for me. Her prices were extremely reasonable too.  I actually didn’t think I wanted to spend the money on flowers in the beginning, until she gave her quote.  I would definitely recommend using Blooms & Beyond to anyone. – Andrew & Siobhan, Aldergrove, BC

 

Maria & Nigel ~ May 25, 2019

What a wonderful experience! Barb was absolutely amazing.  Her extreme eye for detail coupled with her passion for what she does floods into her work.  She was extremely attentive and responsive to me at all times.  She took everything I said I wanted and was able to make my vision come to life.  It was so great to work with her.  I appreciated how much she kept me informed and thought it was so nice that she wanted (offered) to hand deliver the flowers and set them up; an amazing personal touch that really indicates how much she really does have a passion for what she does.  I would highly recommend her to anyone.

On a personal note:  Barb, I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for all that you did for us.  The flowers looked absolutely amazing.  Every little detail was just perfect, and was exactly what I asked for.  You were so so lovely to work with, from being extremely prompt with correspondence to personally delivering our flowers.  It’s clear to see that this is something you are passionate about, and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to work with you.  I hope you know how much it was truly appreciated.  Thank you again. –

Lauren & Dorian ~ May 19, 2019

Barb, the floral arrangements that you made for my daughter’s wedding were beautiful!  The hoops turned out to be a really unique change from the typical bouquet.  Such a nice treat to be slightly different than the norm … I love that.  Thanks so much for making them, Barb!  And the small fee to meet us at the venue to deliver the florals and pin the boutonnieres on the guys saved a lot of stress on the morning of the wedding.
Thanks so much for all of your hard work.  I will highly recommend you to anyone that asks. – 
Shannon Dyck ~ Mother of the bride, White Rock, BC

 

Melissa & Scott ~ December 15, 2018

Thank you still doesn’t seem enough for the arrangements you made for my wedding day!  They were the biggest surprise for me, and my heart was so happy when I first saw them.  You captured my vision in the bouquets and the colours were exactly what I dreamed of.  It was so wonderful working with you when I look back on the wedding day and leading up to it.  You were one of my favorite vendors.  I’m so glad my sister found you or else I might not have. – Scott & Melissa, Langley, BC

 

Courtney & Scott ~ September 22, 2018

So impressed! Barb at Blooms & Beyond is an absolute pleasure to work with.  She is so knowledgeable, warm, and professional.  She put together my bouquet, my husband’s boutonniere, a baby’s breath crown and ‘kissing ball’ for our flower girl, in addition to all of our centerpiece arrangements.  Everything she created was STUNNING!  Barb’s ability to take your ideas and turn them into reality for a very reasonable price is immensely impressive.  I appreciated how easy she was to communicate with as well.  All of my inquiries were answered in a very timely manner, and with a high level of professionalism.  Overall, I had an extremely positive experience working with Blooms & Beyond.  I give them a 10 out of 10 and I will recommend them to anyone looking for floral services in the future. – Scott & Courtney, Mission, BC  ~  See more of this wedding

Ashley & Brad ~ September 8, 2018

Full stars!  I wish I could give more than 5 stars for Barb!  I knew as soon as my mom and I met with her that I would be booking her.  She has such a passion for what she does and it truly shows in her work.  She is an absolute dream to work with and the florals were stunning.  She even came to our location (Fraser River Lodge in Agassiz) and pinned all the groomsmen – which is a plus!  I would recommend her to any bride! – Brad & Ashley, Abbotsford, BC

 

Catherine & Dan ~ August 25, 2018

Barb is the most amazing to work with!  I didn’t know much about flowers, but she is patient, explains, and has great ideas!  She was so responsive to all of my questions over the entire planning process and so thorough with explanations and details.  The flowers were absolutely beautiful, and you can tell Barb loves what she does.  I would work with Barb again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone!

Sue & Hasib ~ August 23, 2018

The most beautiful flowers!  I am beyond thankful that I went with Blooms & Beyond.  My flowers were even more beautiful than I expected.  I had a rough idea of what I wanted, but left the exact flowers and design up to Barb.  She did such a spectacular job!  She was great to work with and always responded to my inquiries very quickly. She is a gem! – Hasib & Sue, New Westminster, BC

 

Alyssa & Matt ~ August 18, 2018

Barb’s work is absolutely stunning! I could not have been happier with how our bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages turned out!  I found her pricing quite reasonable, and she was all too happy to accommodate a last minute add on of two larger arrangements for in front of the head table – which two of my guests loved so much and asked if they could each take one at the end of the night!
Barb delivered everything to our venue (travelling from Aldergrove to Chilliwack at that!), and set up the larger arrangements for us and stayed to pin on boutonnieres and pass off the bouquets to me and my girls.  Barb was so kind and sweet, exceedingly knowledgeable, and her stunning artwork was the perfect touch to a perfect day! On a personal note:  Barb, it has been an absolute pleasure working with you.  Thank you so much for bringing my vision to life!  Your creations are so stunning, and I’m so grateful you could add on the decorative arrangements last minute.
Thank you for all your help getting the guys pinned properly, and for staying to hand off the bouquets to the girls & I! – Matt & Alyssa, Mission, BC

 

Emily & John ~ August 18, 2018

On a personal note: My bouquet was to die for. Perfect. Beautiful.

Amazing value for amazing flowers!  Barb is simply amazing at what she does and takes the time to ensure that she captures exactly what it is you are looking for.  She also works with local vendors to ensure your vision comes to life.  My bridal bouquet was just stunning, and I couldn’t stop staring at it my whole wedding day!  I felt it was also very good value & worth every penny, especially considering the time she took to meet with us and all the back and forth communications.  I would recommend Barb to anyone looking for flower arrangements, 110%. – John & Emily, Langley, BC

 

Hannah & Ryan ~ August 12, 2018

Melissa & Billy ~ August 11, 2018

The service was excellent and Barb was fantastic.  She was very professional from start to finish.  She works together with you to make your flowers perfect, and they were amazing.  She even offered delivery service to our venue (in Harrison Hot Springs) and pinned boutonnieres on for the men.  I highly recommend her to anyone. – Billy & Melissa, Aldergrove, BC

 

Jessica & Matt ~ August 4, 2018

Barb, thank you for all your help with my wedding florals.  I really appreciate all the time you have spent with me in person and over emails discussing my ideas & dreams.  I am truly grateful for your work & expertise.  Thank you! … Jessica – Matt & Jessica, Surrey, BC

 

Jenn & Troy ~ July 27, 2018

Barb met with me and my friend and went through my options.  I wanted a specific look and also wanted faux flowers.  She worked within my price range.  Flowers were a very small part of my wedding, only the bouquets & boutonnieres, but I still wanted them to be beautiful.  I picked up the flowers a week before the wedding and they were beautiful.  They especially looked awesome once we had them against our dresses.  Barb also made a throw away bouquet at no charge.  Thank you Barb! – Troy & Jenn, Chilliwack, BC

 

Melonie & Alex ~ July 21, 2018

Barb did our wedding in July and, from the very beginning, she was responsive and incredibly helpful.  Knowing nothing about flowers, she took what I had in mind and went above and beyond.  They were absolutely breathtaking! – Alex & Melonie, Mission, BC

 

Maddy & Reece ~ July 19, 2018

Overall, amazing!  We had the pleasure of working with Barb for our big day and she was by far our favourite vendor to work with!  She was quick, professional, accommodating and produced beautiful arrangements for us.  She came highly recommended to us and we definitely can see why.  If you need flowers, Barb is your lady! – Reece & Maddy, Langley, BC

 

Cherylea Gray ~ Abbotsford, BC 

Barb, you are amazing.  Thank you for all the beautiful flowers, not only for my wedding day, but the beautiful bouquet for my Dad’s memorial.

 

Jenny & Ryan ~ July 14, 2018

Barb was wonderful to work with.  Very knowledgeable about what would work together and what was available.  She worked within my budget and didn’t skimp out on anything.  I loved my bouquets and would definitely recommend her!! – Ryan & Jenny, Chilliwack, BC

 

Talia & Rory ~ June 30, 2018

Barb did a fabulous job on all the bouquets and other small pieces we had discussed.  She was dedicated to my vision right from the start and brought it all to life.  The florals were beautiful and matched my colour scheme phenomenally.  Barb personally delivered our flowers and pinned corsages and boutonnieres.  I couldn’t have been happier!  Thank you, Barb! – Rory & Talia, Langley, BC

 

Karine & Aaron ~ June 2, 2018

I was really lucky and fortunate to find Barb just a few weeks before my wedding.  It was a last minute decision to ask a professional to do my bouquet and my now husband’s boutonniere.  Even if I didn’t meet Barb in person, she captured my vision really well.  The result was beyond my expectations.  The bouquet was gorgeous with so many different beautiful flowers and tons of greenery.  She is quick with replies and so lovely in her emails.  I would recommend her in a heartbeat.  

On a personal note:  I was over the moon when my mother-in-law brought me the bouquet and the boutonniere that you had created for us.  I can’t believe how perfect it was since mostly everything was arranged between you and my mom-in-law.  It was the perfect size, it had gorgeous white flowers and yellow tones, and the variety of greenery was spectacular.  I loved that there was some fern in it, since I had a few ferns all over my venue!  I will never be able to thank you enough for the joy that it brought me that day.  Thank you so much Barb!!!!  You are truly talented!!!  I will recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat, and hope you can make many more brides happy like you did for me!!!  So much love, Karine – Aaron & Karine, Vancouver, BC

 

Holly & Joel ~ May 19, 2018

I could not be happier with my florals from Barb at Blooms & Beyond.  Barb made my bridesmaids bouquets, my bouquet, all of my boutonnieres and corsages, as well as some large floral arrangements for me,  for my wedding day.  I met with Barb to explain to her my vision, showed her photos and she made exactly what I was looking for.  She listened to me and gave amazing recommendations for the right flowers to use.  She was more than kind and helpful throughout my time leading up to the big day.

If you aren’t sure about who to go to for your floral needs, you don’t need to look any further!  Barb will take care of you and create not only what you envisioned, but something even better!

On a personal note:  I cannot thank you enough, Barb!  The most magical day with my perfect flowers … better than I could have imagined! – Joel & Holly, Surrey, BC  ~  To see more of this wedding

 

Ming Louie Stein ~ April 2018 ~ Summerland, BC

Barb is totally meticulous about every detail.  Her bouquets and centerpieces are truly works of art, each one reflective of her unique style and creativity.  You can tell immediately upon visiting her website that she puts a lot of time and thought into everything.

 

Lisa & Andrew ~ April 21, 2018

Barb was fantastic to work with.  She took our ideas and created beautiful masterpieces with our bouquets, centerpieces, corsages and boutonnieres.  She pinned the flowers and delivered the bouquets to the location myself and my bridesmaids were at.  She even made a separate toss bouquet out of the remaining flowers.  All of our centerpieces were placed perfectly and added so nicely to our table decor.  She is so talented and it is very evident that she’s so passionate about what she does. She is an absolute sweetheart and was such a pleasure to work with.  She’s also very reasonably priced!  I highly recommend Barb! – Andrew & Lisa, Langley, BC

 

Jessica & Daryl ~ April 20, 2018

Barb was an absolute delight to work with.  She was incredibly knowledgeable and showed passion for the work she does.  She was very accommodating and flexible to all ideas and inspirations I had.  Communication was excellent and very prompt.  She worked well within my budget and created a breathtaking bouquet that I had immediately fallen in love with the minute I saw it.  I would highly recommend Blooms & Beyond to anyone looking for beautiful and affordable flowers.

On a personal note:  Hey Barb, I just wanted to say that all of the flowers looked absolutely beautiful!  And my bouquet was truly stunning!!!! The second I saw it, I was absolutely in love!  It was better than anything I had ever expected and it was perfect for me!

Thank you so much for all your help and hard work in helping our dreams and desires become a wonderful reality. – Daryl & Jessica, Langley, BC  ~  To see more of this wedding

 

Alanna & Jason ~ February 24, 2018

I cannot thank Barb enough.  Her floral arrangements for my February wedding were phenomenal .  I gave her a very vague outline and trusted her judgement to arrange my bouquet and centerpieces.  She hit it out of the park.  Everything surpassed my expectations and then some.  She even took the time to go out of her way to make lovely little corsages and boutonnieres for all my children.  She definitely went ‘beyond’!  

On a personal note:  Barb and Blooms & Beyond, I cannot thank you enough.  The flowers were beautiful, your eye for detail is exceptional, and truly the centerpieces were the only decorations needed for such an intimate wedding.  The bouquet was a work of art; the succulents and anemones were perfect.  Also, the addition of the corsages and boutonnieres for all the children (so many, lol) was a lovely personal touch.  They felt so special. Thank you! – Jason & Alanna, Abbotsford, BC  ~  To see more of this wedding

 

Amanda & Andrew ~ January 13, 2018

Barb from Blooms & Beyond did the bouquets and boutonnieres for my January 2018 wedding and they were absolutely perfect.  She was so easy to work with and knew what I wanted better than I did after just a short meeting, and really helped me to figure out the look I was wanting.  I was so thrilled with my bouquet and would recommend Barb to any bride looking for a florist.

On a personal note:  Barb, I can’t thank you enough for the beautiful bouquets you made for our wedding! I absolutely loved my bouquet and it was even more beautiful than I had imagined it! – Andrew & Amanda, Abbotsford, BC

Elaira & Dustin ~ May 27, 2017

Barb Konrad is the sweetest, most professional florist I have ever met! She took my vision (which did not include flower types because, let’s be honest, I have no idea) and brought it to life. She sat with me when we first met for a good hour to go over details I knew nothing about and she took the time to explain everything to me so well. Barb even took the time to come to Whonnock to deliver the bouquets and boutonnieres personally which was amazing and also saved me a ton of time. I highly recommend working with this lovely lady. – Elaira & Dustin, Mission, BC ~ To see more of this wedding

Lori & Glyn ~ October 15, 2016

Barb, thank you again for your wonderful artistry. I felt completely comfortable giving you creative license after we talked in the consultation session and set a few basic guidelines … something Scottish, something purple, asymmetrical shape, and more casual look.  What you did with that was completely perfect, and we weren’t aiming for perfection in the five weeks it took to plan our wedding. I was so impressed with the way you worked to match the purple in Glyn’s tartan, making sure we looked like a couple, just in case there was any doubt.  Glyn & I were so happy with the way everything turned out for our wedding, and we’re glad for the part you played in making our day more than we planned or imagined. Thank you. – Lori & Glyn, Langley, BC ~ To see more of this wedding

 

Charlene & Tyson ~ October 8, 2016

I first met Barb in her home studio early last year at the beginning of my planning process.  She gave lots of expertise and suggestions while discussing my visions, right down to the style of pins on my bouquet.  She was great to work with.  She made two stops on my wedding day to ensure the flowers made it to the destinations in good condition, and even setting them up at the venue.  Her prices were reasonable and affordable. I would very highly recommend Barb. – Charlene & Tyson, Langley, BC ~ To see more of this wedding

Kelsey & Chris ~ July 9, 2016

OH MY! Where do I even begin? Barb did my wedding in July 2016.  She was so wonderful to work with.  I lived out of town and she was able to fully get my vision via our phone conversations/emails.  I gave her an idea of what I wanted and let her go with it.  Barb was able to get exactly what I wanted and was able to stay within my budget. The flowers turned out amazing and the bouquets were so much more than I could have ever imagined! I was complimented all day about how beautiful they were! She was amazing and I was thrilled with the final product!!! I recommend her to anyone looking for a florist! Barb does amazing work! – Kelsey & Chris, 150 Mile House, BC

I can’t boast enough about how fantastic Barb was to work with.  We couldn’t have been more pleased with her work.  The bouquets were stunning, the boutonnieres fabulous, my Mother & Mother-in-law’s corsages beautiful, and the toss bouquet was outstanding.  Barb is just so talented, definitely a 10 star floral designer.

On a personal note:  Barb, I just wanted to thank you again for the outstanding job you did with our bouquets, boutonnieres & corsages.  You went above & beyond.  I was heartbroken when my bouquet was no more.  I am forever grateful that I have photos & the memories of just how beautiful they all were.  I will recommend you to everyone I know. – Kerri & Craig, Mission, BC

From the start to the finish, Barb was wonderful to work with.  We had the pleasure of meeting with her at her lovely home.  She answered all my questions.  She also helped me make my throw away bouquet a special one so that it broke apart in 4 ways, so more ladies had the chance to catch the bouquet.  She made sure my memory charms looked wonderful in my flowers.  On top of everything, the prices were great … xo Love Kim & Hank, Langley, BC  ~ To see more of this wedding

 

 

 Mandy & Devon ~ January 11, 2016

It was such a pleasure to have Barb create our flowers for our big day.  Just twelve short days before our wedding, we had a family member offer to cover the cost of our flowers.  Of course, I figured that was not nearly enough time to order everything.  I sent Barb a message and the following day we arranged a phone consultation, and that evening we had our quote.  The quote on the flowers alone had me surprised as I was expecting it to be much more costly than it was!  She created five bridesmaid bouquets, my bridal bouquet, two corsages, three children’s boutonnieres, and seven boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen and fathers.  When she came to deliver the flowers and place the corsages and bouts at our venue on the day of the wedding, we realized we had forgotten to tell her that we added a last minute groomsman.  Instead of him going without a boutonniere, she took a few flowers and crafted him one in minutes.  We were so impressed!  Thank you, Barb, for everything. Your work was absolutely breathtaking! – Mandy & Devon, Deroche, BC

I absolutely loved my flowers and they looked absolutely amazing in every shot. They were simple and a perfect size. Barb listened to what I wanted and expected the flowers to look like. She captured it perfectly. The bouquets and boutonnieres looked great and they didn’t fall apart or droop (except for the dusty miller which I requested, but still looked amazing in my photos). It was very lovely that she took the time to drive all the way to our venue, was very punctual and stayed to help pin the boutonnieres on the boys. I couldn’t have chosen a more wonderful, thoughtful and creative florist to add that special touch to my wedding day. Dean & Amanda ~ Abbotsford, BC

Michelle & Chris ~ June 27, 2015

Barb is in a word… amazing! For one thing, her pricing is out of this world. Such an amazing deal AND the most beautiful, creative flowers you’ve ever seen. Simply amazing. I met with Barb shortly before the wedding and she spent so much time with me going over flower types, colours, what’s in season during my wedding (to save money) and different bouquet ideas. I didn’t even know there were different bouquet shapes! I had no idea about anything to do with wedding flowers but Barb walked me through it all. She made it easy and fun to create the most beautiful bridal bouquet, and worked with my budget. I absolutely loved my bouquet and how Barb took my words and turned it into exactly what I was thinking in my mind was amazing. She’s a mind reader! Quality work, great service, so friendly and at a truly great price. I highly recommend Barb!!

On a personal note: Barb, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for the beautiful flowers you created for me for my wedding on June 27th this year. I just got our photos back and figured I would send you a few of your gorgeous bouquets in action. They were absolutely beautiful and matched our day so well (the bouts for the guys too!). Thank you again for your amazing design skills, and for taking the time during our consultation to learn about me and teach me about flowers too. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends getting engaged over the next while! Thank you again, so much! – Chris & Michelle, Surrey, BC

Kendyl & Tyler ~ July 5, 2015

Blooms & Beyond provided flowers for my whole bridal party as well as my two ring bearers and flower girl. I received the best service I could have asked for!!! Barb went above and beyond to make sure I got the flowers that I had imagined. The communication was great and quick, and she always kept me in the loop with what was going on and what to expect. Myself and my mother especially, were pleasantly surprised with the cost of the flowers. I don’t think I would’ve been able to find anything that good of quality even come close to the price we paid! Lets just say that the flowers lasted from noon until 11 pm in 40 degree weather! To top it off, I didn’t have to worry about figuring out how to pick up the flowers and where to store them because Barb and her husband drove out to the venue to deliver them right to us! I would recommend Blooms & Beyond 100% to anyone who is looking for the best possible quality of flowers and service. 

On a personal note: I just wanted to thank you for your amazing services and providing BEAUTIFUL flowers! They looked so fabulous that I couldn’t believe it! It was a pleasure meeting you and having you as our florist. The flowers did manage to last all evening except for my groom’s which looked a little tired … ha ha.  – Tyler & Kendyl, Fort McMurray, BC

My flowers, done by Barb Konrad with Blooms & Beyond, were exactly what I had envisioned and were gorgeous! Barb delivered them to me the day of and I was so thankful for that! On a personal note: Barb, August 29th is one day that Keith and I will never forget. The day was nothing short of amazing and full of surprises. Wind was one thing I never thought I would need to worry about in August. But sure enough, the one day we decided to get married we have the storm of the century. I can imagine your drive into Langley that day was not an easy one, so I appreciate you delivering the flowers to us. Barb, the flowers were amazing and everything that I had hoped they would be.

Dani & Kurtis ~ October 3, 2015

Barb was amazing! Before we even met she was willing to answer all of my questions. When my fiancé and I went for our consultation at her house, she was so welcoming and was very prepared. She had tons of books of flowers, examples of shapes of bouquets she does, albums of bouquets she has done in the past and a huge tray full of different accents she can add to your bouquet and ribbons and diamantes you can choose from. I had no idea there was so many things to choose. She asked for our budget and helped us keep within it. If I wanted a flower that was too expensive for my budget she would tell me that and suggest other flowers that look similar. Barb got us our quote a few days after meeting with her. Her prices were very reasonable and fair From the beginning, I really wanted black center anemones and Barb told me they would not be in season at the time of our wedding. I was so heartbroken. Through all of our emails leading up to the wedding I kept going back to the anemones. She said how about we incorporate some fake ones. She told me no one would know any different that they were fake. Our main wedding flowers were supposed to be dahlias. A few weeks before the wedding she found out she would not be able to get them because they all bloomed early. She suggested some things that will give a similar look and I trusted Barb and gave her creative power. On the wedding day she was there long before the girls and I arrived at the church, pinning boutonnieres and putting corsages on our families. She came up to the limo and handed off our bouquets to us. I was so pleased when I saw my bouquet. It was better then what I imagined. It was so me! The fake anemones looked real! No one knew any different. She then went to the reception venue and set up the flowers there. Everything looked great! The big arrangement she made for the head table was perfect. It was much smaller than what she can do but I did not want something big. It really completed the look!

Shout out on Facebook: Barb Konrad at Blooms & Beyond is so easy to work with. She is super prompt at replying to emails and made every single one of my visions come true! We had a strict budget that we had to stick to and she helped me stick to that budget, but still get what I really wanted. I was SO happy when I saw my bouquet and my husband’s boutonniere matched it perfectly!

On a personal note: Barb, I loved my bouquet! – Kurtis & Dani, Surrey, BC

Daniela & Kris ~ October 10, 2015

Emily & Tyler ~ October 17, 2015

Barb at Blooms and Beyond was exceptional to work with. She met me in person to discuss my vision for the flowers at my wedding and worked tirelessly to stay true to the style and appearance. Due to the unusually hot summer, some of the flowers we had originally discussed were not available. However, Barb was able to source and acquire similar flowers within my budget. I would recommend Blooms & Beyond to anyone looking for beautiful and affordable flowers.

On a personal note: Barb, I just wanted to send you a little not to say how amazing the flowers were this weekend! They were everything I hoped they would be!

Barb, just wanted to say thank you again for the flowers. Kyle and myself absolutely loved them! We had tons of compliments on them as well. You did an amazing job!

This was the awesome bridal bouquet Barb created for my daughter. I would highly recommend Barb Konrad!

Jeanette Bower Bollinger ~ September 2014

From a photographer’s point of view, Barb at Blooms & Beyond is absolutely fantastic and her talent is huge! She has got to be one of the most artistic floral designers I know! I have had the pleasure of shooting quite a few weddings that Barb has done flowers for, and I have to say that each of my brides that have worked with her have loved their flowers! I absolutely recommend her services for any event and you will not be disappointed if you choose to go with her. – Jeanette Bower Bollinger, Sunflower Photography, Abbotsford, BC

Elena & Derek

Elena & Derek ~ September 20, 2014

I used Barb at Blooms & Beyond for my Sept. 20th wedding. She was unreal! She was so organized and meticulous on our first meeting. She knew exactly what my vision was for flowers and provided me with a detailed (and incredibly reasonable!) quote within a couple days of our first meeting. The floral arrangements on the day of the wedding literally brought me to tears. Barb and her husband delivered everything to our venue and put all the centerpieces and arrangements into place. She even pinned the boutonnières on the groomsmen. I would 100% recommend Barb and Blooms & Beyond – she was unbelievable! 

On a personal note: Barb, I just wanted to say thanks for all the amazing work you did on the flowers for our wedding…they were unbelievable! The swags on the arbour were so beautiful! You are amazing at what you do and thank you for being a part of our day! Love, – Elena Derek, Surrey, BC

Sandra & Aidan

Sandra & Aidan ~ September 6, 2014

(Note attached to gift from Sandra pre-wedding) Barb, I wanted to find a way to say thank you for all your hard work leading up to our wedding. You work your tail off & I wanted you to know that it’s not just the end result that will be appreciated; it’s every quick email response, every professional piece of advice, and your sincere honesty. It’s so lovely to meet someone who is genuinely kind and puts so much love into their work. It shines through with each and every piece you create. THANK YOU!

Review on Facebook:  “Barb with Blooms & Beyond recently did a beautiful job of highlighting our wedding flowers on her blog.  She was fun and breezy to work with and went all out delivering and setting up the flowers at our beachside venue. If you’re looking for a creative lady who wants you to have your ‘vision’, Barb is your girl.” ~ 
Blog post on this featured couple

(After wedding note) Thank you for being part of our happily ever after; for sharing the first day of the rest of our lives. Our flowers could not have been more perfectly beautiful and we hope you’re so proud of your work. We’ll always remember how much we loved celebrating with you. Love, – Sandra & Aidan, Abbotsford, BC

Anastasia & Kevin

Anastasia & Kevin ~ August 9, 2014

Barb did an amazing job for my wedding! When I first met with Barb, I wasn’t sure what I wanted. Not knowing too much about flowers, she helped me pick out what would compliment my wedding style and use what was in season, showing me lots of pictures and helping me to see what the final outcome would be. She made the process very fun and easy, and really took her time to get every detail just how I wanted it. Her flowers are very reasonable, definitely lasted the day and beyond, and she is such a gem! She hand delivered all the bouquets and pinned every corsage and boutonniere (and they all stayed in perfect place all day). I would recommend Blooms & Beyond to anyone. 

On a personal note: What a pleasure to have you be a part of my wedding planning and day, Barb! – Kevin & Anastasia, Mission, BC

Barb, I wanted to write to say a huge THANK YOU for the flowers. They were all just beautiful, from my bq to the bridesmaid’s, to all the corsages and bouts for the men – they were perfect!

Warmest regards. – Tammy & Rob, New Westminster, BC

 Sarah & Lukasz

Sarah & Lukasz ~ July 18, 2014

Barb is utterly amazing at what she does!! I am so glad that I had her recommended to me for my wedding this July! When I met with her a year ago she was so kind and helpful. I don’t know a lot about flowers so she guided me through what would match the look I was going for but what was also in my budget. She would suggest similar flowers for a lower cost so that I could have amazing flowers on a tight budget. In the end I could not be happier with her! She was so patient and kind with my many questions and changes and also offered me great advice! The flowers were BEYOND what I had pictured for my wedding and everyone complimented how amazing the florals were! My bouquet surpassed my expectations! Barb also came to our venue and hand delivered the flowers, pinned the flowers on the men and placed the arrangements where they needed to go… so much more than a simple floral delivery. Thank you THANK YOU Barb for helping to make our wedding so special and help keep me calm through all the tough decisions that come along the way in wedding planning. Lots of love!  – Sarah & Lukasz, Surrey, BC   To see more of this wedding

You do amazing work and added such beautiful touches to all the bouquets. The choice of flowers really complimented each other and they looked amazing. In fact, my bouquet is still in water and holding up strong. My flower girl was delighted to have her own bouquet. I am so happy that we chose to add that.

Amber & Chris ~ March 15, 2014

Barb was great to work with for flowers. I met her very early on in the wedding planning, so some changes were made closer to the day and she always told me I could change my mind up until the point the flowers were ordered. My bouquet was beautiful and held up under my three kids which was great. Our centerpieces got a ton of compliments. I would completely recommend Barb again. 

On a personal note: Barb, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful flowers. They came out fantastic and they held up so well with the kids. I couldn’t be happier with how everything looked. Simple and elegant and perfect. So thank you for all your hard work. Fondly, – Amber & Chris, Delta, BC

Barb from Blooms & Beyond is absolutely amazing! She was so attentive, thorough, sweet, informative, and so much more!! Every single piece of floral arrangement was breathtaking and perfect. Her attention to detail is like none other. I wanted to change my bridal bouquet after we had our consultation, and she made this process very easy. She provided honest feedback on her thoughts and suggestions. She is also extremely affordable and accommodating for delivery. You will not regret hiring Barb!! 

On a personal note: Colin and I were very happy with the flowers and had so many compliments on the arrangements. I was visiting with one of my bridesmaids just last night and she commented on how amazingly durable her bouquet was and how she just threw it out the other day.

Dear Barb, just a note to say a BIG THANK YOU …. the bridal flowers arrived in Harrison Hot Springs right on time and we ALL stood excited and in awe as the bridal flowers were more than we could ever have imagined they were going to be – they were just amazing. How beautiful and so creative the way you used the music note trinkets Karey gave you to pull together the whole muscial wedding theme. WOW WOW WOW! Everyone noticed this special touch. We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful stunning black calls for the bridal bouquet, as well as the perfect white gerberas with black middles, and white spray roses and muscial notes.. just beautiful. Karey’s photographer and best friend (Rima Dickson) who is an established and highly regarded award winning photographer asked who did the flowers and I was happy to pass on your name to her. Blessings – you definitely blessed this wedding. PS The flowers are STILL amazing as they sit in a vase in our home and we are still enjoying them until the bride and groom are back from their honeymoon. God bless you Barb – God has gifted you most beautifully and thanks for sharing your God-given gift with us. Love, – Dawn and Dave, Mother and Father of the Bride, Langley, BC, Robert & Karey, Langley, BC

Over 5 years ago Barb at Blooms & Beyond did an amazing floral arrangement for the top of my Dad’s casket. Barb integrated my father’s cane and hat with the flowers and the outcome was truly amazing!! Now fast forward to my daughter’s wedding in the Spring of 2013. There was no hesitation on who our florist would be. As the mother of the bride, I’m looking forward to seeing what bridal masterpiece Barb will create for this special day!! – Lana, Abbotsford, BC (See bouquet created in May 2013, “White Princess“)

Christina & Dario ~ October 6, 2012

Barb, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you most sincerely for all of your hard work (and your husband’s!) WOW! What a sight when we got to the venue. Everything was sooooooo beautiful. The crowd was in awe and the guests are still commenting on the beauty of the floral pieces. I have had a sneak peek from a couple of friends and the personal bouquets photographed magically. I wanted to let you know I still have all of the bridesmaid’s bouquets and mine in the living room and they are all thriving – wonderful show stoppers for the company that have visited. Somebody also snagged for us the receiving table arrangement and a centerpiece – also adorning our home. I have taken your instructions carefully to preserve them as long as possible. I even have Dario’s boutonniere alive and well. The periwinkle was a perfect touch. I should tell you one of my flower girls stole the toss bouquet right out of the hands of one of my bridesmaids (who of course obliged!!) She was delighted. I’m sorry I was so rushed when you came to the house. What a crazy day!!! But your patience and kindness will forever be in my heart. You made it absolutely a perfect day. THANK YOU!!! Sincerely, – Christina Dario & Christina, North Vancouver, BC

Alissa & Kamil ~ August 21, 2011

Barb, I just wanted to tell you once again how much we all loved the flowers for Alissa’s wedding! They looked awesome all day; either I’m really good at following directions about misting (not!) or you are just that good at working with them. They lasted the whole time and I am really enjoying the ones that I took home. We got a lot of comments from guests about how lovely the flowers were, and we’ve already recommended you to others! Thanks again for all your hard work. – Evelyn Block, Mom of the Bride, Surrey, BC

Heather & Morgan ~ August 6, 2011

Barb’s overall service was amazing! I went to my appointment to discuss flowers knowing nothing about what I wanted, or even how I wanted everything to look. This was not daunting to Barb at all. She asked appropriate questions to get a feel for my wedding colours, what the dresses looked like, and my general likes & dislikes. She was more than informative and gave me several options and expert advice. I left feeling confident in my decisions and at ease that all was taken care of. She honestly thought of everything! I decided to book her for several reasons. She was so prompt and friendly in all our initial correspondence that I felt assured in her service. After my first meeting with her I instantly decided she was the best fit for providing flowers for my wedding. She had everything so organized and put together that I felt confident in her professional opinions. I was also very pleased with her pricing. It was not only reasonable, but she was very informative on different options and seemed to have no problem working within a budget. She was also very informative on ways to cut down costs. Barb arrived very early to my wedding and had all the parents, grandparents and bridesmaids fitted with their flowers without ever coming to me to even ask who they were. I was so impressed she took this task upon herself to find the recipients without ever bothering me for a single moment, and I was very thankful for this. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and decorated perfectly. With the questions she had previously asked me, she expertly captured my vision for the wedding without me ever really knowing what my vision was. They complemented the colors impeccably and the quality was also fantastic. They smelled and looked amazing and all the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres lasted all night and showed no sign of wilting. In conclusion, I cannot say enough about Barb and her service. I have already recommended her to several of my friends getting married and I only hope they take my advice.

On a personal note: Barb, thank you so much for everything! Your hard work really showed. You did a fantastic job & I will continue to recommend you to all I know!! Love, – Morgan & Heather, Langley, BC 

Sara & Jon ~ July 30, 2011

Christa & Derek ~ July 23, 2011

Barb, thank you for being so sweet and accommodating with the flower arrangements. The lovely flowers exuded simple elegance and charm and were exactly what I was hoping for. I loved all the special touches … the lace, rosemary, lavender and all the colors were really spot on. Every time I looked down at my beautiful bouquet I noticed something new. The day was already perfect, but when the flowers showed up everything really came together! Whenever I think about the way our flowers brightened up the ceremony & reception I just gush! Everyone kept commenting on how enchanting the arrangements were & how well they suited the feel of the day. I’m sorry we were so busy greeting people when you stopped by to present us with all the beauty. We didn’t really get a chance to chat much, did we? The whole day was such a whirlwind. A beautiful, unforgettable whirlwind. Thanks again! – Derek & Christa, Victoria, BC

Pamela & Michael ~ September 11, 2010

Barb, Michael & I cannot thank you enough for our extraordinary experience having you as our wedding florist. We searched and searched online for various businesses and are so grateful we went with Blooms & Beyond! Instantly, your arrangements stood out to us on your website and you went above and beyond expectations. Working with you relieved so much stress that comes with wedding planning. We found the floral aspect quite overwhelming as there were so many types of flowers and colours to choose from. However, your consultations and guidance (and never-ending patience) made it happen for us. My bridal bouquet is now dried and a beautiful vintage piece in my bedroom! Our flowers were one of our favourite decorative memories of our wedding day – we would recommend Blooms & Beyond to anyone looking for that special touch or “something extra” in their floral arrangements. Thank you again so much!! – Pamela & Michael, New Westminster, BC

Katie & John ~ July 9, 2010

Barb, thank you for all your hard work. All the flower arrangements were beautiful & I thought my bouquet was gorgeous all day. Everything was better than I expected and I was very happy with your work. – Katie & John, Abbotsford, BC

Angela & Corne ~ March 27, 2010

Barb, I must say, you and I really understood each other. The bouquets and centerpieces were just as I imagined! Perfect! Thank you so much for being a part of the wedding. And thank you for delivering the bouquets; they made the photos look great with all of us girls! I liked how you put the double tulips in my bouquet. That was really special! Once again, thanks a bunch. The day went wonderful! – Corne & Angela,  Aldergrove, BC 

Holly & Philip ~ April 3, 2010

Thank you Barb for your hospitality. From the time I met you, you warmly greeted my friends and my mother. You’re such a friendly, kind, and highly talented lady. Thank you for quickly responding to every email I had in a timely fashion. I imagine you are used to it by now, but I greatly appreciated it as this was the biggest day of my life I was planning for and wanted everything to be perfect. What can I say? Barb gave us an amazing price and threw in extras like containers for the bouquets that were wrapped with tissue paper and ribbon so they looked pretty; the presentation of them when she came by the hotel truly went above and beyond. She understands the importance of working with your budget. I highly recommend Barb, and you won’t be disappointed because she’ll make your wedding stunning and spectacular with her floral artistry! – Philip & Holly, Mission, BC

I was so impressed with how few decisions I had to make and it came out so beautifully. I didn’t think I would get as excited as I did about the flowers, and I was; I loved the jewels especially! Everything was perfect and I appreciated everything you did! Thanks again. – Dana & Matt, Langley, BC

Thank you so much for doing the bouquet for my wedding. I received so many compliments on it. You did an amazing job! It was not only that, but also the way you handled all of my questions and concerns. I honestly didn’t have a clue as to what I wanted, what kind of flowers there are, or colours. And you were okay with it. You were so polite and patient especially since I don’t know a thing about flowers! Thanks again! – Rick & Kiran, Abbotsford, BC

Troy & Nicole ~ September 27, 2008

Barb, we want to thank you for the beautiful arrangements for our wedding. They were perfect! We received a lot of compliments about how different they were and the colors were just like wow with the ribbon and ivy. I have looked at the picture we thought for the original idea and I found that what you made, while similar, was definitely more unique and extremely lovely. I kept wondering if I was descriptive enough and what I was thinking would be communicated, but you did understand and took the idea and ran with it, which was fantastic. I was also confident in the flowers because even with the changes in the roses, you knew exactly what you were doing and that put me right at ease. The girls loved their bouquets too and of course, the halo for the flower girl was worth it and she was soooo adorable! She kept throwing around the flower ball too. And the guys looked smashing with the boutonnieres of course! Again, we sincerely appreciate everything with the flowers and would like to let others know that you do wonderful arrangements and are a pleasure to work with. – Troy & Nicole, Port Coquitlam, BC

Carlisa & Steve ~ May 17, 2008

From the cake to the weather and the flowers ….I can’t think of anything I would change. And thank you Barb for all your help. I wouldn’t have had a clue what to do and you were so good at guiding me through the whole process. You were a big part of making our day so perfect! – Steve & Carlisa, Langley, BC 

Lyn & Kerry ~ March 8, 2008

Barb, thank you for your part in our wedding with the flowers. The arrangements, bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres were beautiful and enjoyed by everybody. You did such a nice job with the arrangements, along with your willingness to work with our choices. Thank you for your gracious spirit in serving. – Lyn & Kerry, Abbotsford, BC

Linsey & Jonny ~ May 30, 2008

Barb, words can’t describe how much I loved my flowers. Their colors and freshness were top notch. Thank you so much for all your hard work. It was great working with you. – Linsey & Jonny, Langley, BC 

Kim & Rob ~ June 29, 2008

Barb, I just wanted to write you a quick note of thanks for the beautiful flowers you prepared for mine and Rob’s wedding. Although you were concerned about the heat, they lasted quite well! The centerpieces lasted well throughout the next day (but I didn’t see them after that as I went away). The boutonnieres didn’t fare quite so good due to the heat and all of the hugging, but they were nice while they lasted. I must say, I COMPLETELY LOVED THE FLOWERS. I just got our pictures and when I look back at the flowers I just can’t get over how completely beautiful they were. Thank you again for your amazing attention to detail and the care you gave to creating JUST THE LOOK I was hoping to achieve. I’m telling EVERYONE about you! – Kim & Rob, Langley, BC

Leah & Kulbir ~ September 15, 2007

Thanks Barb, I still get compliments on my beautiful flowers from our special day. You did a fabulous job! – Leah & Kulbir, Abbotsford, BC

Barb, Jeff and I can’t thank you enough for the gorgeous bouquet and flower girl head piece you created for us. The small touches you added to the bouquet made it perfect. We were very impressed with your professionalism and excitement we felt you had for what you do. Thank you again for adding a wonderful splash of colour to our special day. – Jeff & Kirsten, Surrey, BC

Pam & Darrin ~ September 2, 2007

Barb was a wonderful florist for our wedding at Harrison Hot Springs. She guided us in choosing flowers that made our wedding look beautiful from the boutonnières and corsages to the bigger arrangements and centerpieces, not to mention the gorgeous bridal bouquet. We could see how she really cared about us as she hand delivered the flowers to Harrison and set them up for us. Barbs service was spectacular and her flower arrangements made our day even more beautiful. – Pam & Darrin, Married at Harrison Resort, BC

.Christopher & Melody ~ September 14, 2007

Barb, we would just like to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for all that you did for us in truly making our wedding day feel so very special and unique. You went so above and beyond in taking care of our floral needs for our special day. Your vast knowledge of floral design, combined with your heartfelt caring and love of flowers and pure professionalism made our special day just that much more special. Should we or anyone we know require the services of a floral designer in the future, we will once again be calling on you. With you as our floral designer Barb, we were able to relax knowing that every detail was taken care of. Sincerely, – Mrs. & Mrs. Christopher & Melody, Abbotsford, BC

Keldy & Jeremy ~ July 7, 2007

Barb did my flowers for my wedding and in the craziness that led up to my BIG day I found Barb to be a breath of fresh air that helped me to completely relax. She was very specific in the details of each bouquet all the way down to the glitter and jewels for the centers of the flowers!! I had SOOO many people comment on how absolutely beautiful my flowers were! I am not a calm and relaxed person by nature so during the picture time I was throwing my arms up and jumping around with my bouquet and at the end of the day it looked the exact same as when I had got it that morning! Barb did an incredible job of taking my ideas and making them reality! I had a black & white wedding and the flowers were the only colors – and WOW did they stand out!!! I was beyond thrilled with Barb’s work and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone and everyone!! THANK YOU BARB FOR ALL THAT YOU DID FOR ME & MY HUBBY!! – Keldy & Jeremy, Washington State

Melissa & Ken ~ June 9, 2007

We were very excited to have Barb do our wedding flowers, not only because of her talent, but also because she is my aunt. I did not know a whole lot about flowers and design, but I had a picture of the colours and style we wanted. I was so impressed with the ideas and combinations Aunt Barb offered as well as help in determining the best look. She was a great help and had an excellent view for what would make our day absolutely memorable. The time and effort spent on our arrangements spoke for themselves. We had many, many compliments the day of the wedding on the beautiful bouquets and sprays. We were very happy with the final presentation, and we highly recommend Barb’s service to anyone! She took so much care into making everything perfect and the flowers were so fresh and vibrant! They were wonderful! Aunt Barb took her imagination to a whole different level and created little details on the bouquets which made it even more beautiful! Her ideas and creativity go a long way and our wedding pictures prove this with every page! Aunt Barb kept in touch and offered new and different ideas to help the planning process much easier on ourselves, and also had a great portfolio of her amazing work. Thank you so much for your excellent service and for making our day so much more memorable! – Ken & Melissa, Aldergrove, BC

Marguerite & Bryon ~ May 26, 2007

When my future husband and I met with Barbara at her home we were treated with such grace and hospitality, including a wonderful afternoon tea. What a great start to planning our wedding flowers. I must admit, being a very knowledgeable ‘flower person’ that I had very specific ideas about what flowers we wanted for our wedding. Barbara listened to our requests, made very helpful suggestions and the end result – beautiful, spectacular, elegant and most fitting to the heritage Chapel and reception site. From the magnificent vases of calla lilies in the Chapel, to the attendants bouquets, the corsages, boutonnières, the posy of stephanotis on the wedding cake – they were all so fresh and so well executed in style and colour. And my bouquet left me speechless! It was such a wonderful sight to behold this most magnificent bouquet of white phalenopsis orchids and stephanotis. The perfume was spell binding. Absolutely awesome. Barbara is one of the greatest floral designers I have ever worked with – she puts her whole heart and soul into making your floral dreams come true. The freshness, the color choices, the perfume almost overwhelmed the senses with their exquisite beauty. One word really describes her work – perfection. Thank you Barbara. – Marguerite & Bryon, Surrey, BC

Lynda & Jacqueline ~ August 4, 2007

Barb, Jacqueline and I want to convey our absolute complete satisfaction with your floral creations designed for our wedding this past August at the Langley Golf and Banquet Centre. We left your residence in the Spring feeling that all the bases had been covered for our arrangements in a process we really had little control over. As you had explained, the ability to know what blooms would actually be available to coordinate with the exotics was not going to be known exactly until closer to the event. We were stunned by not only the beauty of the floral displays Barb, but also the degree of professional and personalized creative finishing you employed. No detail was left out. From the satin bindings that wrapped the bride’s bouquets and the pearl pins that fixed them in place, to the uniqueness of the table arrangements and powder room centerpiece, all were exquisitely presented. Many of our guests left with coveted blooms from their tables and reported that they were still being enjoyed weeks later – a testimonial to their satisfaction as well. Simple thanks could never begin to convey our appreciation of your support in fulfilling our dream of a picture perfect day from beginning to end. We will be sending photographs under separate cover shortly and have passed along your number to several of our neighbors and friends. Fondest regards, – Lynda & Jacqueline, Aldergrove, BC

2007

Floral arranging is a special form of visual art. In the Japanese culture it is called “ichibana” ~translated~ The Art of Flower arrangement and true art comes from the heart, reveals the heart, and speaks to the heart. I have known Barb for many years watched her art blossom. Her gift of flower arranging comes natural to her and her work for whatever the occasion has touched my heart! – Jacqueline Wills, Engraver + Liturgical Artist, Aldergrove, BC

2007

Barb decorated our Missions Dinner last year and did a beautiful job. She was so good about listening to what our theme was and created beautiful center pieces. She also made a large bouquet for the podium in which everyone commented. And her price was so reasonable and affordable for our budget. We have again asked Barb to decorate for our dinner this February and I am really looking forward to working with her. Her ideas are so fresh and always so on track with what we hope to achieve for our themes. I highly recommend Barb for your flower needs!! – Lorna Landry, Abbotsford, BC
