Gloriosa did an absolutely wonderful job for my wedding venue! I called Mary Jo at the LAST minute (weekend before) due to a mishap with my original vendor, and she was so accommodating I almost thought it was too good to be true. But, she did exactly what we wanted - I sent her colors and some favorite flowers, and our bouquets turned out GORGEOUS! All fresh, full, beautiful jewel colors with bright leaves contrasting. It was exactly what I wanted and the price was more than reasonable. Mary Jo went out of her way to help us in so many ways. We highly recommend Gloriosa.
Thank you Terri. I appreciate your kind words and was thrilled to be a part of the wedding at Kyle House. All the best, Mary Jo

Mary jo was so great to work with, she was very helpful and understood exactly what we wanted! The bouquets, center pieces, and chapel pieces turned out exactly as we had imagined!
Thank you Kristin! So happy that you liked everything! It was a beautiful day and I appreciate you including Gloriosa in your wedding day! All the best! Mary Jo

Committed to the Customer
Let me start off by saying, if you chose Gloriosa, you will not be disappointed! Prior to meeting with Mary Jo, I met with several local florist, who were either way outside my budget or didn't leave me feeling confident that they could deliver what I was looking for. My first meeting with Mary Jo far exceeded my expectations. She took time to listen to what I wanted, asked very detailed questions, had me look through pictures to help her get an idea of what I was looking for. When she sent the proposal it was very detailed and included pictures of the flowers she was going to use and even worked with me to ensure I stayed within my budget. A month out from my wedding, I had an episode where I got nervous and upset, afraid that the colors were not going to be what I wanted. Mary Jo called me late in the evening to walk me through a few options. When the flowers were delivered, I honestly couldn't believe how beautiful they were. My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous! Flowers can be a large expense, but I'd have to say they were worth every penny.
Thank you Alisha! You were a pleasure to work with and I was thrilled that we nailed that color combination. The colors were vibrant and I know that day was very special to you and Tony. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it!

I didn't have much of a vision for the floral part of my wedding except I knew I wanted pumpkins. Well Mary Jo somehow knew exactly what I wanted and made this process so easy. I'm not a huge detail person, so she helped me so much with all of it... While being long distance. I couldn't even imagine any of my flowers being any better. They were absolutely perfect and better than I ever imagined.

We are really happy we chose Mary Jo/Gloriosa to make our wedding flowers for our wedding this past September! She did a beautiful job! The bouquets were stunning - I mean, just absolutely gorgeous! She made the guy's bouts exactly how I had imagined. They were perfect! She also made a beautiful bridal flower crown, which held up throughout the night and fit great! Everything was fresh, the bouquets and bigger arrangements lasted for a good week or so after the wedding, and it all photographed extremely well. We also rented our linens, clear flowers vases, silver dessert platters, candelabras, and candles from Mary Jo. It was all just as described, arrived clean and on time, and really made everything that much better! On top of all that, she came to the rescue 2 days before our wedding and got my bouquet, flower crown, and my husband's bout to our wedding planner so she could bring it to us for pictures at the venue (Hurricane Flo was giving us major doubts about Saturday's weather (outdoor wedding), so we opted for photos on Thursday when the weather was clear)! We can't thank her enough for all her hard work to make our day as beautiful as we planned it to be! You're the best, Mary Jo!

Mary Jo is a true artist! She worked with us to create a special day that was beautiful. The colors she suggested based on what we were looking for made the site so much more special. She also was extremely accommodating for the last minute changes to where the wedding was going to take place at the venue due to heavy rains the week before. She handled this very professionally and brought additional items to make it all work. I would highly recommend her.

Mary Jo made our wedding look absolutely beautiful. We received so many compliments on the florals and were blown away by how perfect everything looked. I could not have been happier!

I was a super laid back bride. I told MJ the vision of sorts then she and her team made it happen! They were wonderful, highly reccommend! Have them clean up after your night so your guests don’t have to!

When Chris and I decided to get married, I knew one thing - the flowers had to be magnificent. I don't mean over the top, but I had a vision of exactly what I wanted and a decent budget to stay within. For me, the flowers were the priority.
I didn't shop around for a florist, actually only set up two appointments. MaryJo was my first meeting and I had no need to go to the second after because she knew exactly what I wanted. She listed. She offered suggestions. And I felt like I would be working with someone who I was partnering with - not simply someone who was going to take the ball and run.
My experience working with MaryJo was smooth, professional and seamless.
I remember telling my best friend that I wanted guests to come into the tent and feel like they were at something special. Again, not over the top, but special. I wanted them to have that experience. And so, she paid close attention to everyone's reaction. They said it to each other and to me throughout the night, "I have never seen such beautiful tables... The FLOWERS!"
I highly recommend Gloriosa and would work with MaryJo again in a heartbeat if/when the occasion arises!

Mary Jo scheduled a call with me as soon as I sent in my request for a quote. She went through every wedding detail with me, asked questions that I didn't even think about (she is incredibly impressive and knows her stuff), we passed inspirational photos back and forth over email and she didn't rush my thought process. She put me at ease and from our first call, I knew she was the person who would make my flower dreams come true! I am so thrilled with how it all came together and my family and friends still rave about the gorgeous photos and attention to detail. She also works with your budget and will get creative should you need other options. I am happy to share photos with my review. Thanks Mary Jo!

Mary Jo with Glorisoa Flowers is amazing! She did a great job understanding my vision and picking the perfect flowers to match. The flowers and bouquets she put together were the most beautiful ones I've ever seen. She has everything you'll need in terms of rentals as well. In fact, I ended up renting table runners from her that ended up tying my entire reception look together. She was at my venue early to deliver and set up. I had a center piece for the arbor we used, and her assistants set up the center piece and the fabric around the arbor for us! I can't recommend Gloriosa flowers enough!

Maryjo was beyond wonderful! I wasn’t sure what we wanted and on the first time meeting with her she took a lot of time getting to know what my daughter liked. She developed the most beautiful floral and accessorery design for both the ceremony and reception. She was very thorough with every detail and produced the most beautiful wedding I could ever imagine for my daughter! I cannot say enough about how pleased we are with Maryjo’s services, talents, and professionalism! She is the best you will find in this area!
Thank you so much for the glowing review! I loved putting together the ceremony and reception for your daughter's wedding. I appreciate your lovely comments!

I am very picky when it comes to flowers (mostly what I really do not like versus what I wanted) and Mary Jo worked with me to figure out what we could make work. Our bouquets were absolutely breath taking and everything I imagined! So was the mantle piece and the table center pieces! Mary Jo is worth every penny and her flowers speak for themselves.
Thank you Taylor! I enjoyed creating a beautiful day for you and Paul. You were wonderful to work with and appreciate your kind words !
All the best,

Before my appointment, Mary Jo had me e-mail her pictures of flowers I liked and of my bridesmaids' dresses. When I showed up for my appointment, she was prepared, professional, and so so helpful! She knew the names of each of the flowers I had sent her and helped me build my dream bouquet, slightly changing the flowers in the bridesmaid bouquets to make our package more affordable. We also used her beautiful arbor for our outdoor wedding. The flowers were beautiful, the process was easy, and the pricing was clear and upfront - we were able to adjust to fit our budget.
Thank you Lydia for your kind words. It was a joy to create the flowers for your wedding and I'm thrilled that you were so happy with everything. Thank you! Mary Jo

Mary Jo with Gloriosa was an absolute dream to work with! My husband and I planned our Virginia wedding while living in Alaska. With the 4 hour time difference, Mary Jo was always willing to speak with me at off hours. From our conversations and inspiration images that I provided, she was able to turn my flower dreams into a reality. The tablescapes she was able to create using greenery, pops of color, and silver rentals were exquisite. I seriously cannot say enough good things about Mary Jo! Simply amazing.
Jennifer, Thank you so much for your kind words. I truly enjoyed all the planning we did long distance and our time together. I appreciate the opportunity to be included in your special day. Thank you for being such a wonderful bride! All the best in 2018 !

Mary Jo is your lady if you want somebody who can craft beautiful bouquets, centerpieces, and has all the knowledge and expertise to make your day beautiful. The variety of vases, table cloths, and platters she provided made our wedding magical. She was flexible and met all our needs and wants within our budget. I would highly recommend using her!

Flowers were great! Our wedding was beautiful

Mary Jo truly listens to help your vision come to life. I picked flowers that are not in season in the winter, yet she was still able to get the best selection and incorporate any idea I had. I changed my mind several times on small details and she was always accommodating. I even needed something changed the week of the wedding and she made it happen no problem. She is so friendly and easy to work with- highly highly highly recommend!
Thank you Kristen. It was wonderful to be a part of your winter wedding and a joy to work with you. Your kind words are much appreciated. All the best, Mary Jo
