"After having only 2 weeks before our micro wedding (big wedding cancelled by COVID) - in full bloom was so accommodating! They also took into consideration our budget. Our flowers were absolutely beautiful on our wedding day and received so many compliments! Awesome company!""

"Marie and the entire team at In Full Bloom really made my vision come to life for my winter wedding. Flowers are important to my family and me, as my father started a business growing flowers on our family farm when I was a child. I went into my first consultation appointment with a bunch of ideas on my Pinterest board and Marie honed in on exactly what I was looking for (even before I could articulate what I had wanted). She showed me some of her past work so we could decide what could work at my venue. After my consultation appointment I was confident that I was in good hands with In Full Bloom --- that they could deliver for my winter wedding (even if there was a weather event such as snow), that they had multiple suppliers to get product in if we needed, that they fully understood my vision, and that I would be in great hands and worry-free. They delivered all of that and more on my wedding day --- the flower drop-offs arrived on time. Our bridesmaids' bouquets lasted all day (and were transformed into beautiful centerpieces for my home for well over a week after the event). Multiple guests raved over our high and low centerpieces. Although we had a winter wedding, I really wanted more purple/mauve/light "spring" colors for our reception --- and again, Marie and her team embraced that and ran with it. We opted for other flower accents around our venue -- staircase, entrance piece, dais, and flowers --- again, all executed flawlessly. I didn't worry once about set up or break down (despite having some snow the day-of our event)! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect from start to finish --- and forever indebted to In Full Bloom for being part of making our day as stress-free and perfect as possible."

"From start to finish, Marie and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Planning a wedding during a pandemic is certainly not easy but Marie managed to help me with suggestions to make my day absolutely beautiful. I ordered bouquets, boutteneires, a table swag for my sweetheart table, and a fresh greenery swag for my welcome sign. I'm so glad I decided to get fresh flowers for our decor as it truly made all the difference on our big day. Thanks again to the staff at In Full Bloom for doing such a fantastic job. If I could give them 1,000 stars, I would!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Marie and the In Full Bloom staff from my engagement party thru my wedding and ultimately a postponement and a much smaller wedding than originally planned. They did amazing work and were very flexible which was very much appreciated. We were extremely happy with the flowers for our day and received so many compliments."

"In Full Bloom has always been our 'go to' neighborhood florist for all special occasions - so, they were my first choice for my wedding. We planned our wedding within 2 months during the pandemic... so, the turnaround time was tight but Marie and her team were wonderful and very accomodating. We had one Zoom meeting, I sent over inspiration pictures and we reviewed images from previous weddings. The final result was so classy and elegant! The centerpieces were beautiful and were perfectly complimented with candle arrangements. We also rented their wedding wagon for my baby niece to be pulled down the aisle in - which was adorable and an absolute hit! They exceeded every expectation and the process was seamless. The flowers really gave our small wedding a magical feeling and it was beautiful. I highly recommend and their pricing was fair. Thank you In Full Bloom!!"

"Marie and the In Full Bloom team were a pleasure to work with. They were very responsive from the beginning. I sent them my Pinterest account and during our first meeting they were able to pull the account up and we went through my vision for the day. During the craziness of COVID they stuck by our side as we rescheduled three times. The communication leading up to our wedding was great and day of delivery was prompt. The flowers and centerpieces were beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Truly a great experience working with everyone at In Full Bloom."

"Marie at In Full Bloom does INCREDIBLE work. I don't know much about flowers other than what I think look pretty and what I don't and Marie was not only able to educate me, but get fantastic winter flowers for our February wedding. Marie was able to hear what I really wanted to execute properly. My favorite thing about In Full Bloom was how hands on Marie was too. When I got off the bus to the venue to take pictures, Marie was carrying flowers into the venue. She even snuck outside to watch us do our first look. That's just who she is - she really cares about her clients and it is just icing on the cake that she is a great florist. I highly recommend Marie and In Full Bloom to any future bride and hope that I get to work with her again."

"It was a great pleasure working with In Full Bloom! The results were stunning - we decided not to go overboard with the flowers for our wedding and ordered a flower arch for the ceremony and centerpieces for the tables, as well as bouquets and boutonnieres, of course. And it was more than enough. The quality of the pieces was amazing! Colors - perfect and vibrant. Fresh and fragrant flowers. The venue looked beautiful. The representatives of the company were very professional and lovely to work with!"

Testimonials 2019

"Excellent!!!!! Definitely recommended and I will definitely use them again!!! The flowers were tremendous! Marie even came to the church last minute to replace my husband’s boutonnière to refresh it. Very attentive! 5 stars! I will *definitely* hire in full bloom for my next event!"

"Most gorgeous wedding flowers! I have been to many weddings and none compare to the gorgeous flowers that Marie made for my daughter's wedding. The bouquets, center pieces and venue flowers were absolutely spectacular and exceeded our expectations in every way! This florist is hands-down the best."

"Highly recommend this florist. Marie is thorough and is every experienced with great taste. I had A vision for my wedding and she made it 100x better! The flowers were beautiful and included the colors of my theme (royal purple and lavender)."

"Beautiful team and experience inside and out. Marie and the In Full Bloom team were excellent! When I came in to meet Marie for the first appointment, I already had a clear idea of what I envisioned for our wedding day and she was so thoughtful and patient while she listened to my ideas. She looked very closely at the my photos and we spoke in detail on how she can make my vision come to life while contributing her own amazing ideas. She has a wide variety of really stylish decor that she pairs with the flowers. On the day of the wedding, her team was extremely professional and helpful and I didn't have to worry about a thing. All of our flowers were even more beautiful than I could have every hoped for and I would recommend the In Full Bloom team over and over again."

"Simply Perfect! Marie and her team at In Full Bloom are fantastic! They did an amazing job for my wedding at the Heritage Club on July 3rd, 2019. Working with Marie was so easy- she’s reliable, honest, patient, personable and her attention to detail is like no other. She made it her goal to make sure that I was as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process. She brought my vision to life and for that I am forever grateful. She knocked it out of the park & then some! Everyone is still talking about how gorgeous the centerpieces/floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres were. Also, not to mention how long the flowers lasted for (days)!! Even her selection of candles to add the extra romantic touch was simply perfect. I keep getting questioned on who did our flowers- In Full Bloom, baby! I honestly can’t thank Marie enough for all and everything she did to make our day so special!"

"The most beautiful flowers I could have asked for a better floral team. They worked with my budget, my floral arrangements were amazing!! I had the most beautiful flower wall, which was something I’ve dreamed of having. The service was seamless, they were so responsive. This was a destination wedding for me and to have dealt with such an easy process so far away, they really took care of everything for me. Marie is awesome and will do what you ask."

"Amazing, communication, presentation and service!!! I am beyond happy with In Full Bloom!! Marie, was extremely patient, she and her staff are very hands on. Communication was excellent. You walk into the shop with a dream and they work extremely hard to make it come true (of course within your budget). Our guests gave us so many compliments! The colors, the arrangement, the square arch, everything was perfect!!! Thank you so much!"

"Working with Marie was a pleasure and she was extremely responsive and flexible when I changed my mind. Flowers were important, but not the most important to us and she made the process easy and carefree. My husband enjoyed working with her as well (and we all know how much the groom usually cares about flowers!). Looking forward to continue giving In Full Bloom our business for events over the course of our marriage."

"The whole process was stress free and wonderful. Met with Marie and she saw my vision. Everything was beautiful and was perfect for day of. Couldn't be happier."

"I don't know much about flowers or centerpieces but In Full Bloom helped me figure out exactly what I wanted and created beautiful pieces that made the room look stunning and the guests were thrilled to take them home. The bouquets were so pretty and colorful and look amazing in the pictures."

"In Full Bloom Florist was outstanding to work with! Marie created a vision even better than I explained to her! I simply loved my flowers they were so beautiful!!! She was a pleasure to work with and my centerpieces were just as gorgeous!!"

"Marie is completely loving and nice. She really listens to what you want, and makes everything look so amazing. Marie (the owner) came personally to set up the hall, and to place the flowers on the bride, groom, and bridal party. I have always purchased flowers from here for special occasions, and their flowers seem to last a very long time, and always look so beautiful. Even though they are very pricey compared to other places, the work they do is guaranteed to look great. We couldn't have been happier with how everything looked. I would highly recommend this vendor if you don't mind spending a little extra."

Testimonials 2018

"I cannot recommend Marie at In Full Bloom enough! I went into wedding planning with basically no vision, except for the fact that I don't like roses or pastels. I thought this limited me to just white and green flowers. Marie talked me through every step and explained the different options I had. She made beautiful centerpieces and bridal bouquets with deep, rich jewel tones, and my bouquet was even more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. The flowers were interesting looking and stood out. I appreciated Marie taking the time to show me different things so that I could better understand what I liked and didn't like, and what fit with my budget. Her knowledge of the venue made it easy for me to decide where to include flowers. The best part about working with Marie is that it is easy to tell how passionate she is about her job, which makes the experience even better! She even stopped by to say hello to me on the wedding day after setting up my centerpieces, and I was so happy to see her and express in person how amazing the flowers look. I enjoyed working with Marie and would do it again in a heartbeat!"

"I'm not sure I can possibly explain just how wonderful my experience was working with Marie and her fabulous team of professionals at In Full Bloom, but I'll certainly try! Marie and her team are a dream. Marie is really an artist and her vision is extraordinary. On our first meeting, my husband and I absolutely knew we had to go with In Full Bloom for our floral arrangements. Marie crafted the perfect centerpieces for our rustic/romantic fall wedding, incredible floral arrangements for our ceremony site (including these wonderful enormous urns on wooden crates with bunches of candles inside) and the most beautiful and unique bouquets for my bridesmaids and me with an eclectic mix of flowers, greenery, etc. I made change after change, but Marie didn't miss a beat. She completely brought our wedding vision to life and there wasn't a thing I would change. A few weeks before our wedding, I asked Marie if she would also make me a flower crown for the big day. She created the most gorgeous crown possible and I continue - weeks later - to receive compliments on it. If florals are a large part of your decorative vision for your wedding, absolutely go with In Full Bloom. You will not be disappointed. In fact, you'll be ecstatic."

"I had the BEST experience working with Marie at InFullBloom. The store is beautiful and has this wonderful little sitting area where you can meet with the florist and look at pictures of weddings they've done. Within a few minutes, Marie had pinpointed exactly what my style/preference was (even if I couldn't pinpoint or articulate it!) and built a flower theme that was just perfect. Everyone commented how beautiful my flowers were and how magical they made Oheka Castle look. I'm so appreciative for all that Marie did to make the day so special! I can't recommend this florist highly enough."

"Thank you so much to Marie and everyone at In Full Bloom!!!! Everything was perfect.
 Just beautiful !!"

They were completely professional and thorough throughout the whole process, all of the deliveries and the set up on the day of especially! ALL of the flowers throughout our wedding from the ceremony to the centerpieces, to the bouquets and the succulent favors were outstanding. They took my vision and completely brought it to life!

Our guests could not stop telling us how we had the most beautiful floral arrangements they had ever seen! Thank you so much In Full Bloom!!"

I worked with Marie and she understood the design I was going for therefore picked the right colors for my boutique, bridal party flowers and center pieces. She was also very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. She was very attentive at the church and the revenue to make sure everything was set up accordingly for our guests. I was happy with the outcome."

From our very first appointments, she listened carefully to my flower preferences and style, making suggestions, showing samples, and answering all my questions. Her familiarly with the venue (Heritage Club at Bethpage) combined with her attention to detail transformed my ceremony and reception spaces into a soft, romantic atmosphere. Chris really helped make our wedding day feel and look like a fairytale. Chris is also flexible, easy-going, and a clear expert in her field. She is highly recommended."

Kristen Hordy 
"In Full Bloom has the most creative and insightful staff. They made the small details that I like come alive and put together arrangements that I would have never seen. Our flowers were so beautiful; I was blown away. Highly recommended!"

"We were on a budget for our florals, and I was very worried that my tastes would be out of the question. When I arrived at Marie’s studio, it was cozy and beautiful, and she helped me understand options for remaining in my budget, but that didn’t look like we’d skimped or looked cheap. She was so kind and patient, while also being extremely real with me - letting me know what wouldn’t look right or what would need a higher budget to properly pull off. She even sent me a picture of my bouquet before finalizing to make sure I was 100% satisfied, and I cannot thank her enough! Our photos came out beautiful and the florals looked stunning in the ballroom and with the bridesmaids dresses. Marie, you made one very anxious bride extremely calm, because I knew there would be no issues with your gorgeous work!!"

"In Full Bloom did the flowers for my wedding and my bridal shower. They were even more beautiful than I imagined! The owner Marie is so talented and made my vision come to life. She has the ability to come up with ideas that are outside the box and unique. As well as the rest of the staff who was extremely helpful. I couldn’t imagine using anyone else."

"The flowers were beautiful and everything I asked for. Marie and crew were so professional, prompt, and nice! They made me so excited for my wedding day and everything was flawless. I’m so pleased!"

"Flowers were gorgeous and Marie was always responsive to my questions. The Chuppah in particular was just breathtaking! I was worried it wouldn't look good inside, but it was gorgeous. They are pricey though!"

"It was a pleasure working with in full bloom for our wedding! I mainly communicated with Marie, but everyone was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. The flowers were absolutely stunning on our wedding day and we were glad to have them as one of our vendors! We recommend them highly!"

"Simply amazing. My sister-in-law used In Full Bloom for her wedding and as soon as I saw the ballroom, I knew I had to book them for my own wedding. I knew what I wanted my wedding to look like but couldn't put my vision into words. Somehow, Marie knew exactly what I was looking for and executed it perfectly. From the bouquets to the church to the reception, everything was perfect. I highly recommend going with In Full Bloom!"

"I can’t say enough about Marie and her staff! From our first appointment to our last, everything was perfection. We could not have asked for more beautiful flowers. The quality was outstanding. No detail was missed! Marie had great suggestions to personalize the flowers to our style. On the day of the wedding, she checked in on us to make sure everything was to our liking. Look no further for a better florist! Beautiful work!"

"We couldn't have made a better decision in choosing In Full Bloom for our wedding day flowers. Marie completely blew us away with the most beautiful, fresh, ethereal design that matched the whole theme of the wedding. She made us matching bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres, and created floral decorations for the ceremony arch and reception centerpieces. Everything flowed seamlessly and she and her team captured exactly what I was envisioning. You won’t regret choosing In Full Bloom!"

"Cannot say enough about our experience with IN FULL BLOOM! Marie and staff are amazing— the quality of flowers - a majority of the flowers still beautiful a week past the wedding, colors were perfect - arrangements -exquisite ; service 100% !! Would recommend them to anyone and everyone I know…so many complements- Thank you Marie!!"

Testimonials 2017

"Meetings in person were enjoyable and very productive. In an effort to make the meetings even more productive, provide the bride with a suggested checklist of things to bring to meeting - pinterest board with inspiration to pull up, bridesmaid dress swatch, etc."

"I had an incredible time working with Marie and her team at In Full Bloom. From my bridal shower, to the rehearsal dinner and especially our wedding day - every piece of detail and floral accent was especially curated to create the perfect setting. Coming to Marie with few ideas, she took my breath away with the time and thoughtfulness put towards making each event even more special than I could have imagined. Many thanks and all my love to the team at In Full Bloom!"

"I cannot say enough about Marie and the team at In Full Bloom. I was completely blown away by how beautiful and elegant my florals were for my wedding! I met with approximately 6 other florists and got an immediate sense of comfort from Marie, which was so important to me. While In Full Bloom was on the pricier side of all of the florists I visited, Marie worked with me to achieve the overall look of what I wanted in a price range I was comfortable in. Marie came up with creative and beautiful ideas for my centerpieces that I absolutely loved. Everything from the bouquets, florals for our church ceremony, and our centerpieces were exactly what I envisioned. I could not have been more pleased with my choice to go with In Full Bloom and recommend them whenever I have the chance. Thank you Marie!!!"

"Marie & her team were outstanding to work with from start to finish! Her attention to detail and commitment to making sure we would love our flowers was so appreciated (when you're wedding planning, it's super refreshing!). I had a general idea of what we were looking for, shared my style preference with Marie and she 100% brought it to life - it was even more beautiful than I imagined! We are still getting compliments from our guests on how incredible the church and our reception venue looked thanks to the stunning arrangements. I honestly couldn't have imagined working with anyone else. In Full Bloom is the best! Book them! You will not be disappointed."

"I can't say enough good things about Marie and In Full Bloom. I saw one of her centerpieces at a bridal showcase and had a meeting with her later that day (which she stayed late for). I showed her a picture of an arrangement on Pinterest that I liked and she transformed it into something so gorgeous. She was easy to work with, quick to respond to my emails and very receptive to my ideas and small changes that were made along the way. It is very clear that Marie is passionate about what she does and wants her clients to be fully satisfied with their arrangements. She gave me an English garden themed wedding that surpassed what I imagined. I have never seen flowers like the ones she designed for my wedding and my guests are still raving about them. I can't thank her enough!"

"In Full Bloom is fantastic. We decided to change our centerpieces midway through our planning and Chris was fantastic with creating wedding flowers that we wanted. Our centerpieces were low and highs with white orchids and everyone commented how beautiful and tasteful they were. People even took them home and couldn't stop saying how gorgeous they were. I love their attention to detail and that they only do one wedding a day-which means you are literally the center of their attention. I am super picky and loved everything. Chris is the best-hands down."

"Everything was amazing!! You do beautiful work- couldn’t have picked a better florist :) "

"Our flowers were the focus and highlight of our day so there was a lot of planning and hype around them. Marie and her team at In Full Bloom met and exceeded our expectations! We were blown away by the romantic, tasteful and gorgeous displays placed all around our venue. And the custom ceremony piece is something I think about all the time! It was exactly what I hoped for and I am so blessed to have worked with this awesome staff. Thank you Marie!"

"My daughter's wedding was Sept. 9, 2017. From our initial meeting with Marie, we knew that she 'got' my daughter's vision for her day. She, along with her team, were incredibly creative, approachable, knowledgeable, thoughtful and patient. The arrangements in the church were the most beautiful I have ever seen; elegant but not distracting. We had square, oval and round tables at the reception and the centerpieces, (some high, some low, some with added scaping) were each a work of art. We received so very many compliments on the beauty of the room. I would highly recommend In Full Bloom for anyone who wants that special touch."

"I just used in Full Bloom Florist for my wedding on September 2nd and they are truly the best. Marie is the owner of the company and you work directly with her. Every meeting with Marie was an absolute pleasure. She is so kind and you can tell she truly cares about her clients. She works very closely with you to ensure she understands and achieves your vision. Marie did my flowers for the ceremony which included flowers for the pews and alter and flowers for my reception which included centerpieces, bridal table and entrance piece along with all bouquets and boutonnières. I also rented table overlays and votice candles. All I can say is she blew me away with how beautiful everything looked! I knew she would do a great job but the results were STUNNING! From my bouquet to the centerpieces I absolutely loved every single thing she did. My guests kept commenting on how beautiful all the flowers were. I honestly have never seen more beautiful centerpieces and bouquets in my life. Thank you Marie for making my wedding so beautiful!"

"We loved working with Marie and the staff at In Full Bloom. Marie was so wonderful to work with and helped bring my vision to life. She is not just a florist but an artist who created the most magical floral backdrop for our wedding day. I have received countless compliments on our florals and my husband and I were so impressed by the beautiful flowers In full bloom created for our wedding day. I highly recommend In Full Bloom to anyone who is looking for flowers for any occasion!"

"In Full Bloom was super responsive and helpful when we were determining what we wanted for our wedding. They were willing to work within our budget and delivery amazing flowers for our big day. It was an absolute delight working with this vendor and I highly recommend them for any couple in the LI area."

"I used In Full Bloom for my wedding this past Saturday. When I walked into the room my jaw dropped and my eyes filled with tears. Marie took my vision and exceeded all expectations. The flowers were stunning and we received countless compliments throughout the night. I could not be happier with the result. Throughout the planning, Marie was patient and made sure she understood exactly what I wanted. I would recommend InFullBloom to anyone planning a future engagement."

"Had my bridal bouquet and bridesmaid bouquets done by In Full Bloom and the whole experience was fantastic. My flowers were gorgeous, exactly what I envisioned and did not wilt (considering it was a very long day) Marie was amazing and a pleasure to work with! Would highly recommend them to everyone!"

"Our flowers were absolutely beautiful -- Chris and the staff at In Full Bloom are extremely curteous, helpful and talented. They understood our needs and delivered a flawless presentation from our home to the church to the reception. All of our guests were extremely impressed!! Thank You!"

"We had a wonderful experience using In Full Bloom! I created a Pinterest board to show Marie and her team my vision and they were able to replicate exactly what I wanted! Everything was perfect and I couldn't be more pleased with their service. I would highly recommend them."

"Marie, Chris and their team are beyond amazing! In Full Bloom did all the flowers for our wedding ceremony and reception at the end of June, and words can't describe how blown away we were by their work. From the moment I walked in to meet with Marie, I felt completely at ease. I knew that I was going to get the absolute best from In Full Bloom, and they definitely delivered on our wedding day. When I walked in to the church, my expectations were exceeded with how wonderful it looked. That great feeling carried on throughout the evening as well. The arrangements and centerpieces were absolutely breathtaking, and their positivity and professionalism throughout the process were very much appreciated. Their team is also extremely flexible. We were thrown a few curveballs throughout our wedding process, as almost everyone is. One of those was that a few days before our wedding we had a pretty significant cancellation, so we had to redo our seating chart and go down a table. Marie was so understanding and helped us use those flowers elsewhere to accommodate for the extra centerpiece we had already purchased.  Not only were we thrilled with the final product, but our guests are still raving about how beautiful our centerpieces were! If you are looking for a florist that will deliver amazing work and be a pleasure to work with, then I would definitely book In Full Bloom for your event. You won't regret it!"

"My husband, Jonathan and I, were extremely pleased with our choice of using In Full Bloom for our wedding. Chris was a pleasure to work with and the week of our wedding, made sure everything was perfect. The flowers were amazing! We received so many compliments on the centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres. Being the perfectionist I am, I was very nervous about the flowers since I know NOTHING about flowers. Chris was great with working with me and as long as I sent her pictures (since I wasn't very helpful when it came to explaining) she made it happen! I continue to look at our pictures and go crazy over the fact that those were our wedding flowers! Thank you In Full Bloom for making our wedding look so beautiful!"
