Working with Chad from Carroll's Florist was easily the best decision we made while planning our wedding. Chad was unbelievably professional and knowledgeable throughout our entire planning process. He promptly responded to all of my emails and made suggestions on what type of flowers he believed would look best at my venue and church, all while keeping my vision in tact. We will absolutely be using Chad again whenever we need flowers. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. PS- The maitre d at our venue said that the room always looks the best when Carroll's is the florist.

I just wanted to send a quick email I know its late, but oh my GOD. I cannot say it enough what an incredible job you did tonight. We were in awe I couldn’t stop crying looking up at those mantles the entire night! Just incredible work, we are so grateful to have had you be a part of our team.
We’re currently on our plane about to take off for Italy and are still over the moon and talking about how beautiful Richmond County was thanks to you. Thank you sooo much for creating an indoor garden wonderland for us to share with our family and closest friends. When we walked into the main ballroom, it actually took our breathe away. We ended up taking photos in the empty space of the main ballroom before anyone was able to enter and we’re so excited to receive those and will share with you as well! The bouquets, the flower wall, just everything were so perfect.
We can only imagine the amount of time and effort it took to create such a magical backdrop to our beautiful day and cannot thank you enough.

Thank you so much for the beautiful greenery and floral arrangements for our engagement party and church ceremony. You truly helped make my vision come alive! Everyone loved the display and I’m so happy it worked out as it did.
Wish you all the best, and hope to work with you again in the future!

I just wanted to send you both an email to express our gratitude to you and your staff on the work you did for our wedding last weekend. I cannot express enough my love for the bouquets and how incredible the centerpieces were. The bridal bouquet took my breath away and it looks STUNNING in pictures! Thank you both so so much for all of the work you put into making our wedding flowers absolutely perfect!

Chad and his team was absolutely wonderful for our May wedding. My husband and I did not reside in Staten Island or in the NY area. We were currently stationed at Fort Benning, GA as my husband is active duty in the Army. I grew up in Staten Island and my family is there so we had our wedding at Grand Oaks. We communicated with Chad through email and phone and he was very responsive. I sent him photos of what we wanted for our venue and he met every expectation. He also worked with our budget well and did not try to nickle and dime us. My bouquet was probably the most beautiful bouquet I had ever seen. It was a midnight rose and it was so well put together. Chad's team also delivered my bouquet, the bridemaids bouquets and flower girl baskets and flowers to the hotel room we were staying at. They were on time with no issues. The flowers at the venue took my breath away. I cannot thank Carroll's Florist enough for making our wedding day so beautiful with the floral arrangements. They really did the work and all you had to do was show up!
I worked with Chad and he was great. The staff is very personable and they are all nice. Everything looked so elegant and tasteful for my ceremony and reception.
We had the pleasure of working with Mary Ellen along with the creative workers at Carroll's. As a designer myself, it was important for me to find someone who shared my taste level & understood the modern, yet elegant look we were trying to achieve for our NYC wedding. To say that Carroll's florist made that happen would be an understatement. It was a breath of fresh air to walk into our reception and see it all come to life! Thank you Mary Ellen & the entire Carroll's florist team for being part of what felt like our best day yet!
Chad and Kristin were awesome with us throughout the whole process leading up to the wedding. Their choices of bouquets and floral ideas really matched the design and theme we were going for. They were very professional and courtesy and went above and beyond what we expected. They did such a spectacular job for our wedding that we would highly recommend them.

Mary Ellen, I truly don't have the words right now to properly thank you for everything Saturday. I need you to know how brightly people are talking about the flowers and candle and linens and everything. You are so talented and have really made our vision come to life. We know you cared about our dream and it showed in your beautiful work.
Carrolls Florist is simply amazing! Chad had created the perfect centerpieces and bridal bouquet. During our first meeting, he answered all questions and he came up with great ideas to have beautiful wedding centerpieces at an affordable cost. He created a sample wedding centerpiece for me even before I booked with Carolls! Upon seeing my centerpiece- I fell in love and immediately booked! I received so many compliments from my guests and even my venue itself. If you are looking for beautiful wedding flowers and centerpieces- look no further!!
Carroll’s Florist did an amazing job with the flowers for our wedding. We were looking to keep things simple and aren’t very knowledgeable about the different varieties of flowers. From our initial meeting, Jessica was very friendly and helpful, and offered great suggestions. She designed and created beautiful arrangements and bouquets that matched our color scheme perfectly and came in under budget. They also offer chair covers, which really did add a sense of elegance to our reception room. On our wedding day, Jessica was there early setting everything up. She went above and beyond, adding extra flower petals to our sweetheart table and along the aisle for our ceremony. She even made an extra arrangement for the gazebo where we had our ceremony. It was truly beautiful. We can’t say enough about Carroll’s Florist and Jessica. You guys are the best!
I just wanted to thank you and the team for doing such a beautiful job on our wedding day. You made a picky bride very happy.
Thank you SO much again...
Hope to work with you again in the future.

I recently worked with Mary Ellen for my wedding at the Stone House at Clove Lake. She, along with everyone else, was amazing to work with. She got my vision perfectly and pit together the most amazing floral arrangements I've ever seen. I was so, so pleased with everything, from the service and professionalism to the finished product. Weddings can be very stressful and she made everything so easy (and did I mention gorgeous?). I would 100% go here for any future occasion and highly recommend to anyone shopping around!
Maryellen, I wanted to also thank you for the wonderful job you did for my niece's bridal shower... You helped manifest a vision and transform the entire room!! Many of our guests went home with a gorgeous floral piece. Everyone asked us who "did the flowers?" and were "surprised" !!! Not me, I've been singing your praises for years, Chad knows me a long time.
By the way....The large wooden tables were the talk of the town and the ladies were totally impressed!!
There are few words that will do justice the work that Chad and his team at Carroll's Florist did for our recent wedding. They completely exceeded our expectations. It was more than we could have ever imagined, and I imagined what the flowers at our wedding would look like several hundred times in the year leading up to it! Not to mention, they all showed up big time and created our dream during a blizzard! I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Chad. Our flowers were very unique and colorful, not your typical wedding flowers. And Chad worked so closely and tirelessly with us to create the perfect assortment of flowers. He was extremely attentive and accommodating. He was professional but so fun to work with. It was like working with a friend, and you knew for sure that he had your best interest at heart. We felt like we were working with a true artist - we hit the jackpot with Chad!! The absolute best! When the bouquets arrived at the hotel the morning of the wedding, I cried. They were absolutely stunning. They were just what we wanted and exactly what Chad said they would be. Then, the ceremony. The Chuppah was unbelievable! It was beautifully constructed and expertly lit. And I can't even begin to describe the feelings we felt when walking into the room for our reception. For the first hour of the party I couldn't stop tearing because I couldn't believe just how amazing the room looked. We had a dais 25 people long on one side, and Chad created the most beautiful arrangement of flowers that traveled the entire length of the dais. Our centerpieces were varied tall and short, but both were candle lit and had the most interesting and beautiful arrangement of flowers. I had so many people tell me that the flowers were the most beautiful flowers they'd ever seen in their lives. Still to this day our guests are still talking and raving about how amazing the flowers were. Thank you Chad and Carroll's for making our dream a reality!
Mary Ellen, The flowers for my dad's party yesterday were absolutely beautiful. When we walked into the room to see it set up with pieces on each table and the bar (and all the lit floating candles around them, we were absolutely blown away. Our guests were talking about how gorgeous the flowers were all day.
I couldn't carry a piece back home on the ferry, but I picked myself a bouquet of flowers from one of the centerpieces, and am currently enjoying it in my apartment right now.
Thank you again for making the room look perfect.
We worked with Chad at Carroll's Florist. He was amazing! He helped us make informed decisions about bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony arrangements. Everything on our wedding day was far more beautiful than I ever expected! He made our wedding day truly spectacular!
I worked with Chad for my wedding and he was awesome! He created my dream wedding and made the venue look like a magazine article! My mom is also very high strung and she had a little flip out and Chad handled it perfectly! He was such a nice guy and a pleasure to work with. He will make your dream wedding come true for a very reasonable price!
BOOK CARROLLS! Chad was BY FAR one of our favorite vendors to work with. He is so down-to-Earth, like talking with a friend. He ABSOLUTELY has his bride/groom and their families' best interests at heart and takes pride and care in his STUNNING work. We first met Chad during a venue tour and my mother-in-law (an avid gardener & flower enthusiast) commented on the flowers being set up for a wedding that evening. We spoke with Chad while he was working on a dream of a centerpiece and decided to try him for our engagement party. The day of our engagement party, the maitre'd told me that the centerpieces and arrangements were above and beyond better than the wedding they had there the night before...thanks to Chad. We booked him for our wedding with no hesitation. Chad is a people person and easily the kindest and most knowledgeable vendor we booked. All of our meetings were held at my mom's house, he made it convenient for us. He sat with us for as long as it took until all of our ideas were thought out in great detail. He gave us AMAZING ideas on how to stay on budget but still get that "WOW" factor, he was always very honest about prices and would tell us if there was a comparable flower to what we were looking at, for less. He was quick to respond to all my emails and was extremely thoughtful with his suggestions. He is so flexible and even when we made last minute decisions (like the week leading up to the wedding), he delivered. He worked EXTREMELY well with all our vendors (I learned from experience that not all vendors get along with each other). Him and my Wedding Planner were great and bounced ideas off each other and made sure the design was cohesive. The day of the wedding, our guests were absolutely STUNNED by the flowers all over the grounds, not just the ballroom, he made the whole space an immersive design experience that transported everyone to a real-life fairy tale. I can't wait to use him for future events. YOU WILL BE SO HAPPY YOU BOOKED CARROLLS!
