Love Notes

“Words cannot describe how much I loved my flowers and decor. There is a reason I did a separate Facebook post of your photos on my own wall, taking each piece in separately. Everyone was raving about the gorgeous and understated hues, my photographer included. Thank you for being such a creative and- no offense- old soul. I was able to rattle off my vision, which changed a bit over time, and you were able to manifest it into my dream wedding florals and decor. Audubon is lovely on its own, but always looks better well-dressed~

There was a moment before our reception that Brian and I were alone together in the pavilion, 1_Lauren privately eating some hors d’oeuvres and drinking champagne. Servers were bustling about, but I got to step out into the table area and really take it all in. The effect was BEAUTIFUL. Very rarely am I bowled over, but that moment will be cemented in my mind forever. You gave me my elegant fall wedding without the orange!

As your business grows, and it certainly will, please don’t change one smidge. I selected you because of your love for what you do. Your love of the flowers themselves, their wellbeing, and the way they are cultivated and harvested close to home. Your love of learning about your clients, through consultation in your studio that is charming and dare I say soothing to a bride trying to figure it all out.

I look forward to referring any newly engaged couples, picking up some arrangements for my next soiree, or getting a few stems just because. Thank you so much again.”

Lauren {bride}

“I don’t even know where to start with my wonderful experience with Jennie! From the second I met her at the Love Sick wedding expo I knew I wanted her as my florist! Her style is something I’ve never seen before, if you are looking for a breath of fresh air from the traditional florist style–please check her out! Her passion for her work just screams in the arrangements she creates. Every little detail is taken care of, and I trusted her judgment on everything. Our wedding day wouldn’t have been as beautiful if it weren’t for her work! We met twice before the wedding first for a consult and second because I was too overwhelmed in planning and she helped guide my vision in less than an hour. The end result was perfect and more than I could have ever envisioned! I will use and recommend Love N’ Fresh for any events needing a florist!”

Kim {bride}

“I wanted to tell you that the flowers and design components at the wedding were amazing. 3_Kelley I know I wasn’t very adept at describing what I was looking for, but you captured what I was looking for in simplicity and elegance perfectly and it set the tone for what was the best day of my life! The bouquets were even more beautiful than I had imagined – I didn’t want to put mine down! Considering I have never regarded myself as someone who loves flowers, I couldn’t get over how important they were for the decor. The day just wouldn’t have been the same without all of the beautiful components you brought in! I just can’t thank you enough for listening to me and doing such a good job…the rain chains and calla lilies, the table arrangements…everything was gorgeous! Thank you also for adding the calla lilies for the infinity ceremony at the last minute…it was so meaningful and ended up being one of my favorite parts of the ceremony. I really just can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day everything I could hope for!”

Kelley {bride}

“I can’t begin to thank you for the absolutely wonderful, gorgeous, stunning flower arrangements you so carefully put together for our wedding. you really listened to me, understood my vision, and ran with it. My respect for your work ethic is indescribable. Thanks a million times over!”

Demetra {bride}

“Thank you so much for the stunning work you did at our wedding! We were blown away – everything turned out even better than we’d ever hoped! You are so talented and we were lucky to have you as our florist. Thanks once again for all your hard work! We are so grateful for how you made our wedding vision come to life!”

Kate {bride}

“Thank you SO much for everything you did to make our wedding day vision come to life. you are an amazingly talented artist and farmer. Thank you!!!!”
Lizzy {bride}

“Where do I begin…you truly were such a joy to work with and are part of such a creative, amazing, and talented wedding community. I was totally overwhelmed when I initially started planning my wedding last June, but it has been vendors like you that have made the process so enjoyable and rewarding. I am obsessed with your vision and approach to these amazing floral arrangements. I just loved how they came out and truly respect all the time and nurturing it took to make them a part of my special day. you are amazing as is the work you do! I wish you all the success in the world! Best of luck and don’t worry, I will spread the word about Love ‘n Fresh because you rock!”

Samantha {bride}

“As you can see, your flowers were beautiful and worked perfectly for our wedding. I loved working with you and find myself telling every person I can ho wonderful you and your business are. I hope we get to use your services again someday! P.S. Thank you for the photos – they too are beautiful!”

Serena {bride}

“Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into the flowers and decorations for our wedding! 4_Erica We were overjoyed with the results and the planning process was so fun! We can’t tell you enough how perfect everything was from the chuppah to the table numbers, game signs, and sweet corsages. You nailed every aspect of our colors and aesthetic! Let us know any tie you need a reference.”

Erica {bride}

“Thanks, Jennie, for everything. Yours was the perfect touch in every way and your generosity of your time and attention to detail were so very appreciated. I loved all your little special touches – on the place card table, in the bathrooms, the picnic blankets. The bouquets were exquisite. I look forward to staying in touch with you for any and all flower needs I might have and will eagerly and happily refer my friends to you.”

Connie {bride}

“You were completely, utterly and totally AMAZING – everyone thought your work was awesome (and we’ve been buying your flowers from the co-op too…we just can’t get enough). I can’t believe how well you matched our style and energy and the chuppah was gorgeous. We loved being able not only to have our wedding in Philly, but get to bring what we love so much about the natural beauty of the area inside with us for the wedding.”

Isabel {bride}

“Jennie – The work you do with plants/flowers is truly amazing. 5_Alexis The flowers set the tone and everyone knew that they were grown just for us and loved it!! Thank you for being part of our wedding; it wouldn’t have been the same without you!! I can’t believe how beautiful everything was; I was so happy!!! Thank you so much for really creating a beautiful décor.”

Alexis {bride}

“Thank you so much for all of the incredible flowers, signs, vintage things and photos. Everything was so perfect. You captured our vision perfectly and then added so many amazing extras. We loved your contributions and I am so glad we found you. I hope you will keep in touch and if there is ever anything I can do for you, I hope you will reach out. Again many thanks for all of your hard work and creativity.”

Lauren {bride}

“I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job you did. You were a pleasure to work with! A few guests have already asked “who did the flowers” and I of course gladly answered! If I ever need flowers, you are the one!”

Cathy {mother of the bride}

“The centerpieces you did for our dinner at Longwood far exceeded my expectations—I was counting on fresh and lovely and I got that plus spectacular in a wholesome celebrate-the-earth way!”

Marilyn {event coordinator}

“I just wanted to thank you again for all the wonderful work you did to make my wedding so beautiful. The flowers were gorgeous as always and all the decorations looked great. I had no idea what I wanted my wedding to look like, but I couldn’t have imagined anything better. Thank you!”

Kristin {bride}

“The flowers were magnificent at Erica’s wedding. Kudos to you for such a wonderful job!! Thank you for your careful attention to detail at the wedding.”

Fran {mother of the bride}

“Thanks again for the lovely flowers, my floral crown and clip, and for all the hard work you put into it. Everything looked awesome! We were so happy with the results, but knew all along that you would do an awesome job. There was never any doubt. Thanks again! PS – especially loved the chuppah. When I was walking up to it with my parents, I felt so happy.”

Jill {bride}

“The flowers were simply beautiful. Thank you so very much for the care and creativity you expended on our behalf. It was a beautiful wedding and our guest made many comments on your arrangements. And bonus – the house smelled luscious all week. I can’t say thank you enough. And you made it all so easy!”

Julie {bride}

I want to thank you for the incredibly gorgeous flowers! I 6_Carly absolutely loved my bouquet (was that dill in it!?) and my beautiful headband. I kept finding new things the longer I looked at the bouquet and it held up perfectly through the night! I think you captured the look we were going for just perfectly. I especially loved all of the herbs and other potted plants. I also loved the boutonnieres and the flower girl’s hair garland (and so did she!). I didn’t even get to take in all the little touches on the windows sills until I saw your pics on Facebook. I still can’t believe they were ours! We will definitely be recommending you to all of our friends!”

Carly {bride}

“Thank you SO MUCH for my dream bouquet. It was absolutely gorgeous, and it truly made me feel like a bride on Saturday. Ben’s boutonniere was perfect, as well. Thank you for sharing your talents and fantastic flowers with us and making our day that much more beautiful.”

Jennie {bride}

“Thank you for the BEAUTIFUL, well, EVERYTHING!!! I LOVED the centerpieces!! So did everyone else. Because we had to fly back, I gave them all away to family and friends that drove. I hope they enjoy them. They looked perfect! So many compliments on my bouquet as well! Enjoyed working with you!”

Margaux {bride}

“I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing job that you did on our wedding flowers 7_Colleen — I couldn’t have imagined a more artful display. My bouquet was exactly what I wanted, the aisle decor was perfect, and to be honest, I’m glad we ended up inside in front of the fireplace because that backdrop you created with the candles and flowers was 1000 times more beautiful than any other spot on the Audubon’s grounds. I probably look at the album of our flowers that you posted on Facebook once a week.”

Colleen {bride}

“I can’t thank you enough for the exquisite flowers for our wedding. I received so many compliments and inquiries as to where they were from. I attached a few photos to share. Thank you again, and you can be sure I will highly recommend you to anyone who asks!”

Jackie {bride}

“Here’s is a link to some photos my sister took when we were arranging the flowers for my wedding. We had so much fun doing it! All of the flowers were absolutely beautiful, everyone at the wedding was raving about them. And the bouquets you made were just perfect. My mom actually dried them all for me and they still look amazing, I have them scattered around my house. So, thanks again for making my wedding day so special!”

Alysia {bride}

“The flowers were absolutely stunning, I was speechless when I saw the bouquet and the arrangements! So many compliments from everyone! The loose flowers were perfect for our centerpieces, everything was absolutely gorgeous and fit so well with all of the other decorations. I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work.”
Beth {bride}

“When my husband and I were planning our wedding, it was important for us to utilize local ingredients and organic food, so we wanted to incorporate locally grown flowers as well. Our caterer recommended Love ‘n Fresh Flowers, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with the result. Jennie sat with us and customized my bouquet, our centerpieces, and my husband’s boutonniere. She even created a Pinterest board, utilizing our favorite flowers and colors for the season. It was important to us that everything was seasonal and fresh and the flowers couldn’t have been more stunning. The little details, like wrapping them with twine and presenting them in mason jars made everything come together beautifully. We can’t recommend her enough, we will definitely be in touch with her again for special occasions to come.”

Shannon {bride}

“I found Jennie from a regional magazine and was drawn to her website because 8_Ellie she is farm to table. I had heard that many wedding florists could be difficult to work with. Not Jennie. She was completely helpful, responsive and a pleasure to work with. I have a background in horticulture and this woman knows her flowers! Her work is elegant and beautiful. People are still commenting on the deep, dark purple hydrangeas. Our venue was architecturally very modern and open. Her work drew on that drama. I would recommend her to anyone and use her again in a heartbeat. She’s so nice and so much fun to work with. I will miss her now that the wedding is over!”

Ellie {mother of the bride}

“I would sooo highly recommend Love ‘n Fresh Flowers! I planned my wedding from across the country… and after an initial email consultation about the colors I wanted, I was a terrible bride and actually forgot to send any pictures of the bouquets and flowers I liked. I finally sent Jennie some pictures the week before the wedding and then just crossed my fingers….. and all of the flowers were PERFECT! Perfect size, perfect shape, perfect colors. I received compliments on them all night and they made the pictures look fantastic. They also offer ala carte services which was extremely helpful. Jennie also responded quickly to all email and messages which was key as that is how all my planning was done! I cannot recommend them highly enough!!”

Nicole {bride}

“The flowers for the wedding were spectacular. More beautiful than we could have ever imagined. We loved everything she did for us.”

Dorothy {mother of the bride}

“Jennie, owner of Love n’ Fresh Flowers, was an absolute dream to work with. Her aesthetic is unique and progressive and her sustainable philosophy was a total selling point. Jennie puts love and care into growing her flowers and it total shines through in her arrangements. I was able to take advantage of her a la carte package and it fit our budget perfectly. Jennie is extremely personable and responsive over email. A total score and one of my favorite wedding vendors. Working with people like Jennie made the planning process so much easier!”

Samantha {bride}

“I met Jennie Love when I was visiting my venue. We were invited to check it out while it was being decorated. I was introduced to Jennie who was carefully arranging flowers. Once, she told me that she grows most of the flowers outside of Philadelphia, I had a pretty good hunch she would be my florist. We had a follow up meeting and I explained my vision of bringing the feel of a pacific northwest forest into basically a warehouse. She got it and then she executed the hell out of it despite the wacky spring weather. Hiring Jennie was probably one of the best moves I made. Through looking at her portfolio, I knew that I had someone who would make the venue look fantastic.”

Becky {bride}

“From the very first consultation I knew Jennie would do a fabulous job on our flowers, she was so receptive to all my ideas and had a bunch of great suggestions on how to make my vision a reality. Jennie was so responsive & professional throughout the entire process. I made a few last minute changes and additions that Jennie just took right in stride – the whole process was really just effortless.

We were completely blown away with Jennie’s work on our wedding day, I knew she would do a great job – but everything turned out even better than I could have ever hoped. My bridal bouquet was stunning, the centerpieces were so unique, the bridesmaids just loved their bouquets. Jennie really nailed the vintage rustic chic vibe I was going for, everything was so perfectly styled.

I couldn’t have asked for anything better, I was beyond thrilled with her work. Our guests could not stop talking about the beautiful flowers. I would recommend Love ‘N Fresh Flowers to anyone (and everyone) – I can’t say enough about how much I truly enjoyed working with Jennie throughout the planning process, and how over the moon we were with the final product on our wedding day.”

Kate {bride}

“Jennie is one in a million and I am so happy I found her! I had contacted her initially after reading great reviews on Wedding Wire, and hearing that she grows all of her own flowers! Once I saw that she would be at the Lovesick Bridal Expo, I told her we could actually meet in person there – her space was right next to my wedding DJs (shout out to Roots + Groove), and we hit it off right away. She met with my mom and I not long after that and we were blown away by her ideas, photos of what she has done in the past and how excited she got when discussing my ideas and what I thought I wanted for my wedding. She even put up with me changing my mind (but always going back to our original decisions) a zillion times during the craziness of wedding planning!

Jennie truly loves what she does more than anyone I have ever met, and 9_Liza loves her clients just the same. I was never worried about what the flowers would look like, my 100% trust was with Jennie knowing the TLC and work she put into growing my flowers and her eye for every centerpiece, bouquet, plant box and even including a small photo of my aunt who recently passed away for me in my bouquet. I would recommend Jennie to anyone needing flowers for ANYTHING – she is amazing and the absolute best at her craft.”

Liza {bride}

“My husband and I wanted an environmentally-conscious wedding and chose Jennie because of her lovely locally-grown flower creations. Jennie did an amazing job on our bouquets and boutonnieres – they were more beautiful than I imagined. She is not only talented and creative (and super sweet), but took the time to get a ‘big picture’ feel for our wedding so that her flowers could compliment the setting, details, dress, etc…”

Stephanie {bride}

“Once we’d met her, Jennie was pretty much the only person I would have wanted to do the flowers for my wedding — I’m an enthusiastic gardener who is sadly between gardens, so I had a lot of opinions about what would get used. I didn’t want flowers that had been shipped out of season, from thousands of miles away; I wanted wedding flowers that would reflect the season and the locale, since both my husband and I are from around the Mid-Atlantic region.

Jennie was everything we could have hoped for and super, super professional and nice to boot. She is a trained horticulturist and grows her own flowers, so the plants she puts in her bouquet aren’t just pretty things picked out in a catalog. She also worked with us to put together a bridal bouquet with plants that had symbolic meanings. It was gorgeous, and smelled absolutely wonderful. How many other florists would put anise hyssop in a bridal bouquet? Or how many of them would even have it available? But Jennie did because I asked her for a bouquet that smelled nice, and when the flowers showed up, it thrilled my gardener heart to no end.

We got so, so many compliments about the flowers at the wedding! The prices were reasonable for the quality of what she delivers, and she also has a great selection of props and items for very, very reasonable rental prices, if you’re running a photobooth or need props. And if you get a chance, take a workshop with her! They’re so much fun.

In short: Jennie is awesome.”

Joyce {bride}

I have never seen more beautiful arrangements than the ones made by Love ‘n Fresh Flowers! I was extremely pleased with the quality of service and the quality of the decorations/flowers. I would highly recommend Love ‘n Fresh to anyone who is looking for a unique and beautiful style of flowers for their wedding or any other event. I cannot say enough about the intricate boutonnieres with the succulents as the main focus. Incredible! The only thing I regret was that we weren’t able to enjoy the amazing flower arrangements long enough since we left for our honeymoon the next day. I definitely think that the flowers were the best part of our wedding.

Not only were the flowers perfect/beautiful/amazing/awesome/superb, 10_Emilie the service and professionalism were also great. Jennie was very accommodating and had many excellent ideas. She was very receptive to what we wanted and was very easy and pleasant to work with. Everything arrived on time and was set up perfectly. There is absolutely nothing I can complain about.”

Emilie {bride}

“Jennie Love did an amazing job with my wedding. She was extremely responsive to our ideas for the flowers and delivered exactly what we discussed. The centerpieces, bouquets and flower arrangements just looked fantastic. Her emphasis on sustainable flowers and local flowers was exactly what we were looking for and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Jennie has a great eye and a wonderful sensibility when it comes to making your dreams become a reality. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”

Mira {bride}

“We contacted Jennie as soon as we saw her website and all the lovely photos she had taken of her work. As soon as we met up, it was clear to us that Jennie was the perfect person for us. Not only does she grow her own flowers, but she does so in such an environmentally friendly way – and, this is important – she truly LOVES what she does. It’s wonderful to have a vendor who truly takes pride in what they do. We couldn’t have been happier with everything – communication throughout (emails answered very quickly) and when we needed to change things she was very easy going, and she totally understood the vibe we were going for and worked with us on budget as well. And the final results? They blew us away. Everything was beautiful, as we knew it would be, from my gorgeous flower crown & hair clip to the succulent boutonnières, to the beautiful bouquets and centerpieces and everything in between. We cannot recommend Love ‘n Fresh Flowers enough! Thanks again Jennie!”

Jill & Justin {bride & groom}

“Jennie from Love ‘n Fresh Flowers was a delight to work with. The flowers and decor that she grew and prepared for our wedding were exactly what we wanted! The flowers were all fresh and gorgeous, and she took pains to make sure they were properly cared for before and during our wedding (which was outside on an incredibly hot and humid day). Jennie was also very flexible; she indulged several last-minute decisions that I had to make and took them in stride.

Because they grow all of their own flowers, you get incredibly diverse and unique arrangements that incorporate materials that you wouldn’t expect. My bouquet even had decorative grasses in it! The other decor was also exactly what we talked about and fit in perfectly with the naturalistic elegance of our wedding; a birch pole chuppah with old fashioned ribbons, the table numbers made with antique buttons, the elegant bird cage for cards, and the flower “chandelier” centerpieces were all impeccably made, delivered, and set up by Jennie and her staff. I can’t thank her enough for what she did for our wedding, and I highly recommend Love ‘n Fresh Flowers for anyone who is planning a wedding or event.”
