About Garden Gate Florals

Flowers, flower gardens, trees, nurseries, flower shops and just about anything else floral in nature has always been a passion for me.  I can remember the feeling I got as a child, visiting my Great Aunt Eula’s florist shop in Greensboro, North Carolina, Bryson’s Florist.  I loved the smells and loved watching the ladies in the shop prepare an order for a special client.  I always wanted to take some of the flowers back home with me to Florida.  Little did I know that those early childhood experiences would some day come full circle and I would have my own business creating beautiful flowers for beautiful brides. I think this love affair I have with flowers shows in every bouquet, boutonnière, corsage and table centerpiece I make.  My hope is that you will feel the love too.

I really appreciate you visiting our website.  I hope you will find it helpful and easy to navigate.  As you “Walk through” the site you may notice that each of the bouquets has a description.  Just below that description is a dedication to the inspiration behind each bouquet.   Sarah, Mallory, and Abby are my precious daughters.  Their bright, light-hearted, and unique spirits are the driving force behind my creations.  The girls are the loves of my life and the reason I decided to make wedding flowers in the first place.  Their deep encouragement has meant the world to me and I wanted to repay them by mentioning them on the site.  My husband, David, has also been my rock and right-hand man. He’s my go-to guy for bucket cleaning, lifting, delivering, and general helpfulness on a busy wedding weekend.  However, being the big, strong, ex-football player he is, it didn’t seem quite right to say he inspired my table centerpieces.  Sorry, Dave.  I hope you understand.

So, if you are looking for something special for your wedding, our friendly and helpful staff will do everything possible to make sure your wedding flowers are the perfect accessory for the rest of your wedding day ensemble. Give us a call or email us and I think you will find that getting romantic flowers at a pleasant price is easier than you think.

“…Roses trail and twist on the broken trellis. Petals glisten and radiate rainbow blooms. Tiny birds flit across your path. The sun warms your face. This is Utopia. Open the Garden Gate.”
