You received a new review on The Knot!  posted 10/27/2018Annette is amazing!! I absolutely loved working with her. To start with she is super sweet and easy to work with but also she totally nailed it on the wedding flowers!! Annette provided all of the flowers for my wedding and they were so so beautiful. I absolutely loved the bouquets and all the table decorations etc, and she the did the most perfect "hanging flowers" for our ceremony spot. We will forever treasure those memories and pictures! Thanks so much for everything Anette!  Nora
 

 

March 31 · I've known Annette for a long time, and I can honestly say with her bright personality and creativity you could be in no better hands on your special day. Just look at all of those gorgeous photos! Her experience and talent speak for themselves.   


Annette - Clearly I can't sleep as I'm rehashing the entire evening over and over again, but what you did last night was beyond stunning! As you know I was worried as I'm not great with flowers, but I can't even express how far you exceeded my expectations that I had to write right away. The room was more beautiful and spectacular than I could have ever imagined and the chuppah was probably my highlight - which was awesome since we ended up being inside. I assumed we'd have a small arrangement on each side but what you did was incredible, I loved it and kept saying that all night. my bouquet was perfect, the table arrangements were amazing, the garland esc looked perfect with the roses, I could go on and on - but the look of the room amd everything about it with the candles, etc was by far my greatest surprise and highlight of the weekend, so thank you. I was blown away as it looked more beautiful and spectacular than I could have ever pictured. I can't thank you enough for making whatever scattered vision I had look as beautiful as you did. Hiring you was hands down one of our best decisions for the weekend, so thank you!!! I'm not a review person but if there's a site you'd like me to leave one let me know and I'd happily do it so another bride can be as happy and blown away as I am. Thank you for making our wedding so wonderful! So glad my nightmares were so so far from reality:)   Stacy Tischler 9/8/18

March 8 · As a friend and colleague of Annette I can say that she is one of the hardest working florists and designers I know. From BEAUTIFUL decor items she has for rent to the gorgeous floral displays she creates, she truly designs a space that reflects her client.. She doesn't leave your location until it looks gorgeous, even if that means helping caterers, fixing linens, etc. When you trust her with your big day, she treats it like her own event.  


March 8 · I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Annette on multiple projects for Colonial Heritage and the couples having their special day here. Her personable, professional service with exceptional attention to detail and creativity blows my mind. I have had wonderful comments from the brides I recommend to her and will continue to do so with the utmost confidence that they will be well cared for and have exactly what they envision for their day.

No request is too big OR too small. I love that you treat every customer's needs with the utmost respect and put all your love and energy and hard work. I asked for a flower crown for a bridal shower. Sounds a little simple but what it meant to us was more than words could express. With a few short adjectives to describe what I wanted but without a real vision, Annette took her creative and artistic talents and created a perfect floral crown that the bride to be LOVED. It's like she knew her and you could tell she put a lot of thought into what I asked for and what I gave her to work with. Annette was also incredibly flexible to help get the crown to me. Again, no project is too big or too small for her to help with and she puts 110% and all her love and passion into all of her projects. I can't think of a lot of people with that kind of dedication. She loves what she does, is phenomenal at what she does and people love her for it!  Thanks again, Annette Bottey Lindsey!!!!!!


Annette is amazing and she goes above and beyond!! I couldn't have been more pleased with her work. The decorated gazebo, table centerpieces, and bouquet were absolutely gorgeous. She even made my two dogs floral collars to wear in their pictures!! I can't say enough good things about Annette and her work!

Sarah,  4/21/18, 



Annette did a splendid job for my wedding and I could not have asked for a better, more skilled and more engaging florist. She took the time to understand my vision, suggested flowers and leaves that would highlight the color scheme of our wedding and made an exquisite bouquet, incredible centerpieces and unique boutonnieres. Not only is she a very professional and talented florist, but she is also a wonderful person. Wholeheartedly recommend her!!




Annette is an incredibly personable, bubbly, fun person. She is a great visionary, and has a real touch of flair for what she does. Our table centerpieces and bridal aisle were absolutely gorgeous, and she was also a huge help in setting the table and arch decorations using items that we brought.

Annette created the absolute perfect setting for my daughter's wedding. She listened and created exactly what my daughter wanted. She is wonderful to work with and made my life so easy. Every detail was covered. She responded quickly and nothing was ever an issue.. I loved the flowers so much -- after the wedding we donated them to Hospice House to share the beauty she created

 Barbara,  8/19/17


Annette was extremely helpful in explaining to me what was feasible and assisting in shaping my vision for my wedding flowers; I came to her with only the vaguest ideas of what flowers I wanted. The results were stunning and we received lots of compliments on my bouquet in particular. She also recommended other local wedding vendors from her years working in the industry which ended up leading us to our DJ, another great find. I highly recommend working with her.

 Allison,  7/22/17,



March 19 · I know Annette's work from numerous weddings, word of mouth referrals, collaborations with other vendors as a regional industry influencer and stylist, as well as her unparalleled interpersonal skills. She is the most professional yet caring vendor you will ever hire and she invests part of herself into each and every wedding she styles. Her esthetic for florals and decor are breathtakingly beautiful and will add so much your special day! I have been in the wedding industry for many years and this lady is outstanding as a resource, a professional, and an industry leader! 


Annette did the most beautiful job! I was absolutely blown away when I walked into my reception. It was the most beautiful night and the florals played a huge part. Annette was also so helpful and enthusiastic during the entire process - I felt like she truly cared about what I wanted and how to bring my vision to life!She is truly an artist!  Sarah  May 2018

Annette brought my floral vision to life! I wanted a lot of flowers at my wedding so we ended up with quite a few pieces. I had 10 centerpieces, 2 floral urns, 2 tiebacks made of flowers, flowers for my cake, flowers for the aisle, parent/grandparent flowers, and of course my large bouquet. Everything was perfect and she ensured that what I wanted was a part of my wedding. She made excellent suggestions and additions like some beautiful quicksand roses. In the end everything looked elegant and beautiful. Annette has a wonderful passion for what she does and it shines through in her work.

Annette was great! She was able to give examples of flowers that would go with my venue and helped me when I changed the flowers I wanted during the wedding. She was also accommodating and dropped our flowers off at the hotel instead of the venue like we had originally planned. Her flower arrangements were gorgeous and got a lot of compliments from our guests.


Wedding: 05/27/2018


March 5 · Annette has a passion that you don't often come across. She loves what she does and especially helping her clients and friends. I have worked with Annette many times and have always loved the flowers and decor that she creates!! You are in great hands with her - no matter what the occasion!  

March 5 · I've worked with Annette on many different occasions and she is by far the BEST! Not only is she super talented with a creative eye, she has a positive spirit and would do anything for her clients and fellow vendors. 



Putting the bride's vision into reality is obviously Annette's priority. I've never had anyone spend as much time as she did for my daughter's wedding. My bride's challenge was imagining how things would appear. That's not always easy for everyone. We're both very grateful for EVERYTHING that Annette did to have such spectacular quality and color with her arrangements. She's a terrific listener which enables her to pay attention to every detail.  If you're debating between choosing another florist and her, like I was at first...once you discover how genuine Annette's passion is to match her customer's expectations....you'll immediately realize the decision's already been made! Her efforts are above and beyond most bridal vendors, in addition of being mindful of budget parameters, too.  Haven't ordered wedding pics yet...may post later. Have a look at the "sample" bouquet she put together (pictured below) after a last-minute request from me to add to my bridal portrait setting with my daughter.  This is a fraction of what we had for the entire wedding, but several guests and wedding party members complimented the flowers. She's absolutely a gem to work with! HIRE HER!

Annette has literally been one of my favorite vendors to work with--kind, invested in my big day, and talented. I can tell she loves what she does and is good at it. I appreciate her as a small business owner who delivers quality and value. Something unique about her is the time commitment she gives to set up the day of an event and make it perfect which takes a lot of stress off of myself and my family when there is so much else going on. 

I could not have been more pleased. Kayla 04/18

Annette was fantastic to work with! Her passion for flowers really shins through every step of the way.

Every arrangement was stunning down to the last detail!  06/29/18

Loved my wedding bouquets! She was also super helpful in suggesting some ideas for the flower options. We were supposed to pick up our flowers but she called the day before stating she was nervous the flowers wouldn’t hold up in the heat if we picked them up so she delivered them for us! Great customer service and she definitely has a passion for what she does! Highly recommend!
