Testimonials

Dear Mike & Jardiniere,

Thank you so much for the absolutely gorgeous job you did with the flowers at our wedding.  From the very first meeting you completely understood our vision and everything turned out even more amazing than we could have ever imagined – we can’t even tell you how many compliments we’ve received from our family and friends! Once again, thank you so much, we sincerely appreciate it!

Love,
Stefanie & Cory
Dear Mike,

Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day perfect!  You did such a wonderful job with the flowers – they were gorgeous!  We have already recommended Jardiniere to many of our friends too!  I especially appreciate your patience and flexibility, as I was pretty indecisive at first.  We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.  Thank you again!

Sincerely,
Kystle & Adam
Dear Mike,

The flowers at our wedding were absolutely breathtaking!  Thank you for making my wedding vision come true and even better than I could have imagined.  All the roses and flowers were so full and fresh, they lasted for a week plus! We received so many compliments.  Thank you so much for being so easy and kind to work with.  Also, last week for my 6-month anniversary, my husband sent me flowers from you guys that were replicas of our wedding centerpieces and I’m sure you had something to with that.  Since he is away in Afghanistan it meant so very much to have the floral reminder of that day.  Thank you very very much! If you need pictures of any flowers or lanterns from the wedding, let me know!

Thanks for everything,
Cassie Barry
Gentlemen,

On Monday, March 3rd, your delivery man left a magnificent flower arrangement as my son’s home in Bedminster NJ.  The flowers were sent from Eve and Helmut, and they served as a centerpiece for my son’s informal wedding at his home.

I want to thank all those who so artistically arranged the fragrant and colorful bouquet.  Truly, the centerpiece was outstanding.  Please continue to provide all of us with your magnificent work so that we can enjoy someone’s artistic endeavors.  Many thanks for adding such a gracious note to our happy occasion.

Sincerely,
Barbara
Dear Mike,

Thank you so much for making our wedding spectacularly beautiful!

Of all the elements that a wedding encompasses, the flowers were the most important to me.  I knew from looking at your work on theknot.com that you were talented, but what impressed me more was your on-the-spot creativity when we first met back in July of last year.  Other floral vendors I had met with talked about arrangements, but didn’t have any actual flowers in the shop to show to me.  You not only brought flowers in to that first meeting, but also you created a full sample arrangement at our second meeting, and when we wanted to change it, you ran to the case to switch out some of the flowers until we were pleased with the whole arrangement.  You truly went “above and beyond” in making sure that we were totally satisfied.

Even more importantly, you were so patient with me as I was deciding on the flowers for the Chuppah.  Even though it is only seen for a mere half-hour or so, it was so important to me that the Chuppah look fresh and spring-like, and not be covered in elaborate sprays.  You got it just right, and not only that, it literally took my breath away how beautiful it was.

Our guests could not stop gushing about how gorgeous the flowers were, and the bridesmaids simply loved their arrangements.  My bouquet was beyond words.  Again, thank you so much for all of your time and effort, and especially your patience with all of the changes I made!

Sincerely,
Jennifer
Michael,

Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the floral arrangements you put together last Saturday.  Stunning would be an understatement… The wooden boxes were made for that room!!  You and your team exceeded my expectations… At the end of the party, many people scooped the arrangements to take home and I was glad that they were able to enjoy them for several more days… I took home the small arrangement that was placed in the bar area… I took it to my office to enjoy them all this week…

I know this is what you do every day, but I have to tell you that you were such fun to work with!!  You provide your clients with an outstanding and pleasurable experience, while delivering superb quality!!

When I get back from vacation, I’d like to talk to you about some planters I need for my house… Can’t wait to work with you again!!

Best regards,
Uchente
Dear Michael,

Thank you so much for the perfect job on our flowers! The vision in my head is exactly what you created for us!  You were a pleasure to work with and all the little extras you did are so much appreciated.  Thank you again for helping make our day so special!!!

Best wishes,
Cathy & Vincent
Dear Mike & Staff,

Thank you for the magnificent floral arrangements for Emma’s communion party.  You took my vision and made it in reality even better than I imagined.  They were absolutely perfect!  You went above and beyond in calling me that day and making 2 more arrangements.  I just want you to know how much I appreciate that.  I have driven past your shop many times but never stopped in.  I am so happy Bonnie refered you.  The tables looked fabulous thanks to you.  I will tell all my friends.

Thanks again.
Kate
With six weeks to go before our wedding, my wife and I found ourselves in the predicament of having to change our florist due to “communication and reliability” issues.

Luckily one of the brides I was working with at the hotel recommended Michael Pellegrino at Jardiniere.  Michael was able to instantly understand our needs and help us realize our vision.  He was able to stick to our budget to the penny and still give us everything we needed for the event.  We were blown away by his creativity and professionalism.

Michael and his team have a true passion for what they do and it shows in every arrangement they conceive.  They are a first class organization and Michael’s temperament and dedication make him a joy to work with.  He helped us create the wedding of our dreams and we could never thank him enough.

Sincerely,
Joe
Jardiniere did an amazing job for my wedding flowers. Mike (the owner) is wonderful to work with– he has great ideas, is very responsive, and accomodating. We went to his shop in Far Hills to meet with him. He was able to provide us with tons of pictures of the work he has done. I also emailed him pictures of what I liked. He put together a proposal for us that included specific pictures of the flowers he was going to use for each part of the day, along with the prices. After we made the deposit, he also let me make changes to the proposal up until the week of the wedding! His work was beautiful!! Jardiniere built an AMAZING and reasonably priced archway for my outdoor ceremony at the Park Savoy. The aisle was lined with tons of candles and rose petals. It was stunning. The centerpieces were perfect– alternating high and low vases– filled with roses and hydrangea and cascading orchids in the middle, accompanied by floating candles. It was very elegant. Mike also did the flowers on my cake which turned out beautiful. I met with another vendor (the house florist for the Park Savoy) prior to Mike and their quote was outrageous (thousands over what Mike quoted us for pretty much the exact same thing). Mike worked within our budget. I could not have been happier. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Jardiniere for your wedding flowers– you will not be disappointed!
Sincerely,
Amanda
Dear Michael,

Thank you so much for all your coordination with Daniel and I during our wedding planning process.  We are grateful for the time and energy you put into our special day.  We knew from our first meeting that you understood our vision!  You could show us pictures of what we were imagining as we were describing our ideas – it was unbelievable!  We had complete trust that you would create a breathtaking event… and you did!  The feeling of elegance and romanticism you delivered from the moment our guest stepped into the liberty house was unforgettable.  The lanterns and white floral arrangements play so beautifully against the NYC skyline, it created a “wow” moment.  You managed to capture the feeling we could only dream of.  AND white peonies at the end of November!  My bouquet was amazing! I still have people asking how in the world I was able to get them!  It made my day! Thanks again for making our day so special.

Sincerely,
Daniel & Devin
Dear Mike,

Now that we’re recuperated, I wanted to reach out and say how glorious your work for Rebecca’s wedding was.  Everything was exquisite and we were just thrilled.  There are some fabulous photos coming out way which I will enjoy sharing with you.  Your professionalism, the flowers, and the other touches were all integral parts of our event.  Everyone Raved.  Thank you again for making it such an enjoyable event

Warmest Regards,
Kathy
Dear Mike,

I cannot put into words how breathtaking the wedding flowers were.  We couldn’t have been more thrilled.  Even though my bouquet doesn’t look quite as gorgeous dried out, I couldn’t bear to throw it away!  You were a pleasure to work with and I would recommend you to anyone!

Love,
Lauren & Bob
Mike and the Jardiniere team,

Bruno and I just wanted to thank you for all of the work you did for our wedding.  We loved all of the arrangements, especially the centerpieces.  It was so nice to not have to worry about any of the arrangements that day.  Thank you!

Love,
Sandy & Bruno
Dear Mike,

Warmest regards,

Dear Michael,

Thank you so much for so thoughtfully and generously surprising Dan and I with our floral centerpiece for our first anniversary dinner at the Bernards Inn!  Seeing your beautiful work again brought me to tears and conjured so many special memories for us – from meeting you to how elegantly your floral designs added the perfect décor on our wedding day – we were so touched.   My favorites were the white peonies which will always have a special meaning to me being in my bouquet as well.  You have no idea how happy you made us!  Thank you again!

Sincerely,
Jackie (Darvin)
Dear Mr. Pellegrino,

I’m writing to let you know how wonderful it was to work with Marlene at your store for my daughter’s wedding.  I happened upon Jardiniere during a shopping trip during a period when my daughter and I were conflicted over the florist we had tentatively identified for her wedding.  What a stroke of good fortune! I was greeted warmly by Marlene and immediately felt that she would be very attentive to our wishes and work with us on solving our challenges.  I was not disappointed!

Marlene was creative, attentive and extraordinarily helpful in identifying what we were trying to accomplish.  We had some challenges at the reception hall (e.g., an ugly fireplace!) that she had solutions for.  I was impressed that she took the time to go there and see way I was talking about.

Marlene did the flowers for our daughter’s shower, rehearsal dinner and finally, the reception.  Our guests raved about the flowers at all three functions.  All were beautiful! Marlene was so devoted, I assumed she owned the store.  When I was told she didn’t I just felt I had to let you know what a great job she did.  You can be very proud of her!

You can be sure I will recommend your business to anyone who’s looking for an extraordinary florist.

Sincerely,
Cornelia
Dear Everyone at Jardiniere,

Words cannot describe how I felt when I saw my bouquet!  It was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined.  You took my simple idea and made it an amazingly beautiful work of art.  I had no intention of keeping it in pictures but since it was so breathtaking it made its way into ALL of my pictures.  I cannot thank you enough.  It made me feel extra beautiful.

Many thanks & lots of love,
Cali
Dear Mike,

We wish to express out sincerest gratitude for your kindness, creativity and professionalism.  We enjoyed working with you and we were happily overwhelmed with your beautiful floral and decorative creations.  The bouquets were gorgeous and the wedding table was stunning!  You helped create memories we will never forget.  Thank you!

Kindest regards,
Ben & Melissa
Dear Michael,

Thank you for making our wedding the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen.  I know I’m a little bit biased, but the flowers could not have been more beautiful and perfect.  Your arrangements were even better than I could have ever imagined and they really made the wedding look better than I could have ever hoped for.  Even Aaron said that he never knew how much the flowers mattered until he saw the flowers at our wedding.  Thanks again for all of your hard work and for having such a beautiful vision for our wedding.

Love,
Melissa & Aaron
Michael,

Thank you for all your hard work in making the USGA Museum grand opening so special.  The lovely arrangements in the silver vases were my particular favorite.  I hope we’ll be able to work together again very soon. Enjoy the summer – I hope it’s a busy one for you!

Best Regards,
Karen
Dear Mr. Pellegrino,

I wish you could have heard the compliments give to your flower arrangements at my daughter’s wedding at the Bernards Inn on June 28th.  Each centerpiece was lovely – carefully designed in a delicate way with just the right amount of flowers and different color.  The bridal bouquets were also exquisite.  Thank you very much. Your talent made quite an impact! I will be recommending you to anyone who will listen.

With Appreciation,
Judith
Dear Michael,

It’s been one week since the Keller Williams event and Lauren and I wanted to thank you for helping us make it such a success.  We received so many compliments about the décor!! Of course we made sure everyone knew who did the flowers.  You are always there when we need you and for that we are truly grateful.

Love,
Tracey & Lauren
Dear Mike,

Thank you so very much for all the gorgeous arrangements you so artfully designed for our wedding.  From the rehearsal dinner to the bouquets and the boutonnieres and the aisle runners to the centerpieces, each was a work of art!  I really appreciate the thought that you clearly put into our event.  It really did look like each individual flower was hand-picked for perfection.  I know you work with Trump National often, but I thought you would like to know that Mr. Trump absolutely loved the whole look of the wedding and specifically gave very high compliments to the centerpieces.   Thank you for adding so much elegance to our weekend!

All the best,
Meredith & Aaron
Dear Michael,

I just wanted to tell you how much I loved my bouquet.  You did a great job on all of the flowers, the centerpieces, the boutonnieres and the cake looked wonderful.  However, you really outdid yourself with my bouquet.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I received.  It was so beautiful I never wanted to put it down.  In fact, It’s still in my refrigerator holding strong.

From the beginning you understood what I wanted and what sort of feel I was interested in.  Thanks for helping me make my wedding so special!

Sincerely,
Nancy
Dear Michael,

Dear Michael & all of the Jardiniere family,

Thank you for the beautiful flowers – every one was a wonder.  The tulips were so subtle and exquisite.  It is a comfort to know and work with wonderful people like you.

Fondly,
Jean
Dear Jardiniere,

I ordered a flower arrangement from you for my daughter’s engagement dinner at Ninety Acres this past Saturday evening.  I asked you to use one of her gifts, which was a Waterford bowl, as the vase.  The arrangement that graced our dinner table was exquisite!  It was everything I wanted and my daughter and her fiancé were thrilled.  Several people at nearby tables remarked on how beautiful it was, as it was definitely a head turner.  Thank you for working with me.  I wanted this engagement party to be extra special and it was.

Sincerely,
Addie
Dear Mike,

How can we thank you enough for the extraordinary flowers at Kathy’s wedding?  Your kind patience with so many detail changes is so appreciated.  It was truly a magical day!

My sincerest thank you,
Leslie
Dear Mike,

Amazing.  I cannot thank you enough for the amazing flowers you did for Jackie and Dan’s wedding.  The church and HFGC were breathtakingly beautiful as were all the bouquets.  The lanterns and votives at night were remarkable, really beautiful.  Again, many many thanks to all you did to make Jackie’s and Dan’s big day so perfect.  Truly the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen at a wedding.

Fondly,
Lissy
