Although I cater to many types of events, the main focus here at Stargazers is
weddings. I feel that I take a unique approach
to the planning and design of your wedding flowers. Here are a few reasons why...
As a highly personalized florist, I am dedicated to making your wedding or
event as special and unique as you are. Many bigger florists offer generic
"wedding packages" with set prices and arrangements, but I believe that everyone
is entitled to their own individual experience. I understand that every ceremony,
reception and family situation is different, as well as each person's particular taste.
Therefore I take the time to sit down and discuss every detail of your event,
from the bride’s bouquet to the flowergirl’s headpiece to the cake decorations.
Whatever your vision, whether it is incorporating your favorite flower*, flowers
that were used in your mom’s bouquet, or perhaps creating a picture from a
magazine that you absolutely fell in love with, I will do my best to make it
happen. One of my favorite things to do is to incorporate some personal part of
each bride into her flowers - for example the centerpiece pictured here was for two
chemists; thus the test tubes! I LOVE creating designs that are unique and personal
- whether it’s something whimsical or something elegant. On your special day you
deserve your own custom-designed wedding, not some random "wedding package".
*All flowers may not be available at all times, depending on
the time of year, but I do my best to find them. Season may however
affect the cost of an individual type of flower.
Another distinctive aspect of Stargazers is that there is no shop or storefront.
I work out of a self-built workshop in my home in Denville, NJ. Therefore there
are no interruptions during our consultation or when I am working on your event; you
receive my undivided attention. There is nothing worse in my opinion
than trying to sit down and discuss your flowers and having constant interruptions
- phone calls, people walking in, etc. I come to you, wherever you wish to meet,
carrying pictures, magazines, floral books, and my own portfolio of work.
We can sit and discuss your wedding or event in the comfort of your own
Dedication to Quality
One of the most critical things that I have learned over the years is the
importance of conditioning and caring for the flowers before they are placed into
your bouquet or centerpiece. I take great pride in my work, and I make sure that
only the freshest and highest quality flowers are ever used. In addition, I take
great strides to ensure the longevity of your arrangements, sometimes working
well into the wee morning hours the night before an event to make sure that everything
is as fresh as possible. Freshness is also ensured by the fact that I order for one event
at a time and only for that specific event. You will never receive flowers that
are left over from another job - they are always picked up and cut fresh for your
arrangements. I do everything within my power to guarantee that your
flowers will last well beyond your event. I also pride myself on my attention to detail,
promising arrangements that will be full, beautiful and unique.
Once again, every situation is different - every family, every location. Many
situations require special needs. I do my best to address any issues or unusual
requests with a creative and open mind. I once had a bride who only had $200 to
spend on her flowers. With a little imagination and resourcefulness we were able
to come up with a beautiful idea and remain within her budget. I had a mother of
the bride who was allergic to flowers, so I designed a silk corsage for her to
wear. I even designed a silk bouquet to travel across the country for a bride
who was getting married in California. I am more than happy to work with you,
no matter what your situation, and will do my best to accommodate your needs.
