  • My now-husband (yay!) and I got married on 9/12/2020 at Hotel Utica. I actually found Affections from a fellow bride after I attended her wedding and was just in love with her flowers/decor. Char was the sweetest vendor to work with & despite the ever-changing planning process we experienced during the pandemic she was always flexible and accommodating — just a quick text or email away at all times. From the initial visit with Char & Josh where we sat for almost 2 hours to figure out what the heck it was I wanted (not knowing the different types of flowers or greenery!) to the final walk through our venue the week before our wedding — I felt at ease knowing that with Affections on my team I knew they would make the night beautiful... and it truly was! We used their team for our ceremony space, draping, centerpieces, bouquets/bouts and beyond — everything the team touched with flowers and greenery transformed the space. Pricing is definitely reasonable for the quality of work they... Read more

  • I found Affections Floral Design & Event planning on Instagram. I called and spoke to Josh who brought me in immediately, pre-Covid we only had 4 months to plan. He understood my vision right away and knew exactly what I wanted, adding ideas that only come from experience and being very knowledgeable in the industry. Once Covid hit we tried to do everything to not change our date until realizing we had no other choice. They were unbelievably flexible and understanding the entire way. Making payments, adjusting the invoice and adding/reducing arrangements for our ever changing guest list, it was no problem. Not only were they our florist but turned our home, yard and barn into a dream and even better than we envisioned. We couldn’t have had our day be as perfect without them!

  • I am beyond grateful that we found Charmaine and her team! I was originally looking for a vendor for ceiling draping only, but ended up using her for the flowers and other decorations as well. I'm so glad I hired them. After that first phone call with Charmaine I felt a sense of relief that I had found someone. She was very personable on the phone and listened to my ideas and brought my vision to life. With everything happening with COVID, she was very accommodating even when we had to change the site of the reception and change our date. The day before the wedding they came to set up the draping, backdrop and work on the flower arrangements. They showed up with a whole trailer full of decorative items and flowers! I was beyond amazed because they went above and beyond my expectations. The day of the wedding I didn't have anyone to set up the tables and place settings I was so worried but Charmaine took care of everything for me! Everything was perfect and gorgeous we received so many... Read more

  • Charmaine and her team somehow captured my vision (even though I changed my mind a million times!) and truly set the ambiance of our wedding day. No detail was spared; from the bouquets to the photo arch, to the welcome signs and corsages, everything tied together so perfectly! They put pops of floral where no one would even think to put it amd it’s amazing how it completed the entire look. Charmaine and her team will not just listen to what you want, but will also make suggestions, which proves they truly know what they’re talking about. They had never done a wedding at our venue and the way they decorated it was like they had been doing weddings there every weekend for years. Their creativity shined through on our wedding day and I’m so glad we used them as our florist!

  • Charmaine did our flowers and decor for my daughter's wedding and everyone absolutely loved EVERYTHING she did! The draping, bouquets, centerpieces.....everything she touched was magical!! She made it everything that we were thinking and more!! She even embellished any decorations that we brought ourselves. It truly looked magical and whimsical - just what we wanted! Truly a fairy-tale, dream come true!!

  • We absolutely loved Affections! Their staff was so sweet, polite, and helpful during the entire experience. It was such a stress relief to not have to worry about the flowers arriving on our wedding day or where they would go. Between their staff and the wedding coordinator, everything turned out absolutely stunning. I had a beautiful wedding, thanks to them!

  • Char and her team did an amazing job. I was very indecisive during the the whole process and didn’t know exactly what I wanted as decor for my wedding. Char was very patient with me. She took all of my inspiration pics and created something so unique to our taste. It turned out beautiful! It was truly a dream wedding.

  • Char and her team did such an amazing job for our July wedding at Tailwater Lodge. They listened and gave suggestions to make the day so special that I was left speechless when I saw the room. We met a few times before the wedding and everything when seemingly. Everything was done perfectly and tasteful. Char is also very easy to get a hold of, you can either text or call her and she will always get back to you .

  • Char at Affections Floral was masterful at putting together every arrangement, every bouquet, and every detail. My wedding venue was stunning with Char in charge. She is such a professional with an eye for detail I had absolutely nothing to worry about while she and her team were setting up my venue. It was truly breathtaking in every way. I can not possibly express how special she made my day. I can only say that my wedding guests are still talking about how beautiful the flowers were 3 weeks later. Paige Rockwell

  • There aren't words for how much Charmaine and her team made our wedding day exactly what it was. The morning of our wedding and the days leading up, we had been slightly stressed out about items our venue had not gotten back to us about. At about 10:30AM on the day of the wedding, Charmaine showed up and immediately, there was a sense of relief. It was the first time I had met her, but the calmness she has and provides to brides and their families is unparalleled to anything I’ve ever experienced in the customer service industry. She came in, noticed the items that needed to be fixed and immediately got her team working on them, despite being the florist and not the coordinator. In under 45 minutes, she took a plain room and made it her canvas and the space could not have been more beautiful. Additionally, as the day of coordinator was not present, she worked with all the other vendors to make sure everything was set up correctly and aligned with the images I had sent over during our...

  • It’s hard to know where to start with this because there are so many wonderful things to say about Char and her team! From the very first appointment we had with Char she made us feel like we were part of the family. We sat down at her kitchen table and started going over details. I had a vision in mind and as soon as I started telling her what it was I knew she got it! She sent a quote right away and anytime I asked for changes they were done in a blink of an eye. Not only is Char good with the business end of it she is a true artist and a genuine person! Char and her staff will make all your wedding dreams come true and make them better then you ever thought they could be! From the flowers, to the draping, to the bistro lights, to the candles and décor, everything was so beyond beautiful. I cried multiple times when I saw it coming together and at the finished product and I will forever be grateful for that. Every place you looked at The Cannery you wanted to take a picture be...

  • I do want to start off by saying that my bouquet was the most beautiful bouquet I have ever seen. It was stunning, my bridesmaids bouquets were also very beautiful and better than your average bridesmaid bouquets. There were just a few hiccups that caused some frustrations in order to get to the final product. Throughout the wedding planning process, other vendors were very responsive, but I could never get ahold of our florist until about a month and a half out. Meetings were missed, phone calls and emails were ignored, and it was rather frustrating. I know the summer is a busy time for weddings and I had tried to schedule appointments during the week or in off hours, but it was the most frustrating part of the wedding planning process and that included chasing down RSVPs. With that being said, everything the day of went rather smoothly. We did end up missing a bridesmaids bouquet, but after an hour or so, the situation was fixed and we ended up with another beautiful bouquet. T... Read more

  • Char and her team were able to bring what I envisioned to life. It complimented the venue and vibe of the wedding so well. She did wonders with the flowers (coming from not a huge flower girl) and made sure everything flowed.
