Testimonials

Marsha,

Thank you for the gorgeous flower displays you created for our wedding at the Grand Victorian . We received many comments about the beautiful arrangements – especially the fireplace mantles.

Thank you for taking the time to work with us to match our colors and help educate us about flowers.   The bouquets were perfect, both simple and beautiful…We loved the tulips!  You truly gave our wedding a Springtime feel and helped accent the mood of the evening.

Sincerely,
Laura & John

Marsha,

I want to thank you so much for all you hard work and help to make our wedding so beautiful. It was truly a magical day and your last minute decisions on the flowers were amazing!The rose petals at the altar (heart shaped) were something out of a fairy tale… beautiful! We received so many comments on the flowers…(people were fighting over the centerpieces!)

You are truly talented and I want you to know September 14th will be a day to always cherish and remember.

Love,
Mike & Shelly

P.S.  We loved our cake.  It was such a shame to take all of the flowers and ivy off.

Dear Marsha,

I just want to express my gratitude for the wonderful job you did with the flowers for Kim and Jason’s wedding.  All of the arrangements were masterpieces.  Kim’s bouquet and the bridesmaid’s bouquets were truly spectacular.  Your organization of time and place of deliveries made the day move along smoothly.

We had so many of our guests comment to us about how beautiful everything looked.  The guests that took home the centerpieces with the hurricanes were thrilled!

Kim said that this was the wedding of her dreams and your flower creations were certainly a big part of that.

Thank you again for everything.
Sincerely,
Susan

Marsha Howe is the quintessential wedding planner.
After organizing my Niagara-on-the-Lake wedding with her from my current home in Calgary, Alberta, I can say without a doubt that she is every wedding magazine and Vera Wang book combined into one person.  She is the complete package with talents in all areas including those as a wedding designer, florist, stylist, mediator, comic and voice of sanity.

Her unwavering sense of good taste and style contributed a great deal to the success of every aspect of my three-day, 160 person wedding weekend.  From old-fashioned etiquette to our own personal modern touches, Marsha helped me, my husband Joel and our families discover and achieve our own unique vision of the perfect wedding day.

I would highly recommend Marsha Howe to anyone and will force my dearest friends and unmarried younger sister to employ her services when the time comes.

Just a quick note Marsha to thank you for the exquisite flower arrangements at Erin & Matt’s wedding.  You are truly blessed with great talent.

Many people commented “how lovely”, “beautiful”, “fabulous” the flowers were – “just like in a magazine”.  So, Marsha your flowers were a big hit.  Thanks for all the hard work.

Hi Marsha,

We wanted to extend a huge thanks for your fabulous floral design!

I could hardly wait for the ‘unveiling’ of the flowers on the big day and I was wow-ed when I entered the Atrium, greeted by your beautiful work.  My bouquet was perfect; the altar arrangements elegant and impressive, while the aisle markers and rose petals added a unique and personal touch.

The centerpieces and individually wired orchids were THE perfect complement to the reception décor, with many guests adorning their ”do-s” with the blooms!

Your work was impeccable and added a beautiful backdrop to what was a perfect day.

I’d be pleased to provide a referral or testimonial, as we would be happy to pass along this experience to another couple.

Thanks again,
Nicole and Lee

Hi Marsha,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the absolutely amazing job you did with the flowers, the church, the mason jars, etc., etc.  I know I came to you with a pretty specific request and not only did you bring that to life but you exceeded my expectations.  Thank you for helping bring together the feel and look of what was one of the best days of my life.

I will be happy to send over any photos from the photographer that help showcase your work.

Thanks again,

Dear Marsha,

Thank you so much for all your help with Carly & Tiffany’s wedding.

I really appreciated your professionalism and patience with my changes and nit-picking – I promise I’m not always that difficult!  The flowers and decor were stunning (for both functions -greeting reception as well as wedding ceremony and reception) and the whole process was a pleasure.

I hope we can work together soon!

Cheers!

Dear Marsha:

Thank you so much for your wonderful arrangements at the events for Carly & Tiffany’s Wedding last weekend.

The colors and designs were perfect for each event.  I couldn’t have been more pleased with how the room at The Old Winery looked.

The guests who drove were given centrepieces to take home and they were very pleased to be given them.  I still have flowers here at my home and many are still going strong as I keep rearranging them.

Thank you again, it was a real pleasure working with you.

Sincerely,
Barbara Pearce (mother of the bride)

Hi Marsha:

It feels great to be Mrs. Kelly.  The wedding was amazing, such a great day.  We just got back from our honeymoon in Hawaii and that was amazing as well.

Thank you for your work on our flowers.  We loved them, they looked great and really fit well with our theme.  The bridesmaid’s bouquets matched the dresses perfectly and all the flowers (especially the table arrangements) really added to the romance.  Thank you very much.

I don’t have pictures from the photographer yet, but would be happy to share the link with you when he sends them to me.

Best regards,
Elaine

I loved, loved, loved the flower arrangements.  I had the arrangements in the Tiara room the next day for the big brunch and took one home and gave away the others.
So, thank you so much for your ingenious buying and right-on design and workmanship.  I hope to work with you again.

Hi Marsha:

Just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful flowers you arranged for our daughter Claire’s wedding this past Sunday. They were just what we wanted.

Now, almost a week later, I have the Bridal Bouquet and two of the Bridesmaids bouquets in water at home and they still look great.  I also have the table centre pieces at home, still going strong!

The orchids were placed in the folds of the napkins and were an added touch of elegance to the look of the tables. We were really pleased with everything. I will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a floral professional for any upcoming events.

Kind Regards,
Maureen (Mother of the Bride)

Dear Marsha,

Thank you so much for providing the beautiful flowers for our wedding day.  Your attention to detail, ideas and passion for what you do really make you stand out and so easy to work with.

This was so appreciated especially as we were planning the wedding from so far away.  Please thank anyone who helped with the delivery on our behalf.

With Warm Regards,
Kathryn & Oliver

Marsha,

Thank you for everything!  The flowers were exquisite.  I was sad to only enjoy them for one day, but we were off to Barbados on Sunday.  Robert Nowell, the photographer got some shots of the room and flowers before everyone was seated.  Please let me know if you’re interested and I can ask Robert if it’s ok to share digital copies with you when I have them.

I am pleased to hear the arrangements found another home!  I couldn’t bear the thought of them just getting chucked out after one day. If you ever need a reference please feel free to contact me.

My best,
Kathryn

Hello Marsha

We would like to extend our thanks to you for helping to make our wedding at The Pillar and Post a most memorable event. The pedestal arrangements were absolutely stunning, as were the table arrangements at Queen’s Landing.

Our theme was:  simple and elegant…certainly reflected in your beautiful bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres.

With Heartfelt Thanks
