  • Samantha Monday and her team are true artists and a few of the nicest people you will ever meet. Samantha was so responsive and supportive. Due to my modest budget, I was originally planning on only purchasing my bridal bouquet from a florist - all the other flowers for centerpieces, corsages, boutonnières, bridesmaid bouquets, etc. were going to be from Costco. I would have had to put everything together the night before!!! I told Samantha what I was planning on spending at Costco for EVERYTHING and she said she could absolutely work within my budget. I couldn't believe it. I had called nearly a dozen florists and everyone else either guffawed or wouldn't return my phone calls at all. My entire wedding (140 people in NJ) cost less than $25,000. The flower arrangements and bouquets were more beautiful and more unique than those at my friend's wedding - she spent $10,000 on her flower alone! Samantha used my own pale blue Mason jars that I had spent months collecting at estate sales ... Read more

  • We wanted to use a florist from our town and Samantha did such a beautiful job for our wedding in August. Gardenias went above and beyond with the bouquets, centerpieces, and decor. Samantha listened to our vision and created exactly what we wanted- a summery, wild-flower mix that photographed beautifully. We were beyond thrilled with our flowers- I would highly recommend Gardenias!

  • We had a fantastic experience working with Samantha! We shared a general idea of what we were looking for and some pictures, and when we went in to see the sample, it was exactly what we had in mind! The day of, the flowers were all beautiful, and arrived right on time! We were so happy with the center pieces and all of the bouquets, and it was so nice how all of the bouquets arrived in a vase with each girl's name on it!

  • Samantha was so amazing! I changed my mind a few times about the kind of centerpieces I wanted, and she was very patient and responsive to my emails and calls. She helped me stay in budget, and she understood exactly the look I was going for! The week of the wedding, Samantha emailed me to warn me that their supplier was having an issue with the quality of my favorite flower and that we may have to go with something different, but she assured me she wasn't giving up hope and would continue to call all other suppliers in the area. She ended up finding them and I have never seen such beautiful flowers! The bouquets and centerpieces were absolutely perfect!

  • We used Gardenias for our bouquets, boutonnieres and mother corsages. I met with Samantha twice, to go over what we wanted and for her to make a sample. She was very helpful with any adjustments I wanted to make at any point. We did customer pick up because both the grooms parents and my parents house are two minutes away, everything came out beautiful, we had an issue with the mothers corsages the day of, the roses looked a little wilted, but between my maid of honor and dad the problem was fixed without me even realizing it, and the end result was gorgeous, everyone complimented how beautiful our flowers were! I'm now using them to preserve my bouquet because that's how perfect it was!

  • We were so happy with our decision to go with Gardenia's for our wedding flowers! Samantha was super friendly and helpful from day one. Everything from the boutonnières to the centerpieces were absolutely gorgeous! We received so many compliments on our bouquets and centerpieces. Samantha even incorporated some of my special charms into my bouquet which helped me to honor and remember loved ones on our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and would recommend Gardenia's to anyone in search of beautiful wedding flowers with great service!

  • Samantha and her group completely assembled the flowers according to my vision, if not better!! I had booked their services around 5 months in advance and had so many additions and/or changes up until the wedding. Samantha was very patient with me during this time and I can never be grateful enough for that. Gardenias also offers a sample viewing which helps so much during the planning process. I had ordered fresh flowers for our bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and church decorations; while at reception, I had ordered silk flowers. I was more worried about the silk flowers as many other florists that I had gone to were not able to accommodate for the types of flowers I had in mind ---- however, Gardenias was able to pull through for me! Everything was delivered to their locations on time as well! All flowers -- regardless if they were fresh or silk --- were also treated with care and packaged carefully. I could not have pictured a perfect wedding without them. AMAZING person to work ... Read more

  • Samantha was very easy to work with. She always made sure to keep her notes up-to-date and checked-in regularly. My flowers came out exactly how I asked. They were creative and just funky enough while still fitting in well for a traditional wedding. I was very happy with them.

  • Samantha at Gardenias Floral is a true artist. When we first met with her, I wasn't sure entirely what to expect. I don't know much about flowers, and despite all my Pinterest browsing, I'd only come up with a few keywords: I knew I liked a lot of texture, and I knew we wanted burgundy dahlias. In that first meeting, she helped walk us through all of our options and to suss out a clear style. She is stoic and clear, but I peeked at her notes while we were talking about the overall style of the wedding and realized that she had written out precisely what flowers she wanted to use in each bouquet, including some that I knew and loved but hadn't even thought to mention. It was clear to me that she already knew just what she would create for us, and I was already excited to see it! From seeing examples of her work online, I honestly expected Gardenias to be out of our price range. I was so surprised and relieved when I saw the estimate and knew we didn't need to meet with anyone else. S... Read more

  • I found Gardenias Floral on the Knot. We looked at other florists as well. When we met Samantha she was very nice and showed us an idea of the flowers that we can have on our day. They made our budget very flexible for us. I wasn't sure how my bouquet would look like, but on the day of the sampling it was something I was looking for. It was gorgeous. They delivered our flowers in a timely manner. They even helped us with our aisle decor and our arch even when we were last minute. Everything turned out beautiful and I would highly recommend them.

  • Sam did an amazing job as my florist for my wedding! the boutiques and boutonnieres were so beautiful! She made a sample boutique months before my wedding to make sure it was what I wanted my flowers to look like. The flowers came out perfect. She always kept in contact to ask if there were any changes to my flowers months/weeks leading up to my wedding. If I had any questions for Sam, I emailed her and she always responded back right away. I would highly recommend Gardenias for your wedding! You will not be disappointed.

Better than I could have imagined!! I received so many compliments, even from the staff at the venue. They said they had not seen such creative displays before, and they've seen a lot.

  • I would absolutely recommend Gardenias Floral to anyone who needs a great florist. I didn’t have a florist I used regularly before my wedding, so I needed to do some searching. At first I only planned on doing bouquets and boutonnieres from Gardenias because I didn’t need any floral decor, but I ended up using them for centerpieces as well. One thing I really like about Gardenias is that they’re a small local store in Metuchen, NJ and all of my meetings were with Samantha Monday, one of the owners. I showed Samantha some ideas I found on Pinterest, told her my color scheme and what kind of flowers I did/didn’t like and she and her team created amazing bouquets and centerpieces. Something else I really liked is that I got to have a preview meeting to go in and see a preview of my bouquet so that if I wanted to change anything I could and I got to see what the finished product would look like before the wedding day. My wedding was in August so I was worried about the bouque... Read more
