“Hi Marian and Bety,
There are no adequate words I could articulate that would do justice to the absolutely phenomenal flowers you designed for the wedding. This was priceless! I knew you would blow the roof off but this was exhilarating! The guests were knocked off their feet at the Church and at the Seaport. Even the hotel staff commented on the exceptional beauty of the arrangements. No one, absolutely no one, had ever seen such a magnificent floral presentation as this spectacular undertaking. They are still talking about the flowers. You made this so easy for me. I never worried about anything. At the reception, I told the guests how my mother insisted, no…demanded that only your flowers could be used when her beautiful granddaughter was married… I really had no choice nor desire to use anybody else!! Thank you so so much for making this Wedding truly the Royal Wedding! I will be by soon to show you some pictures. Kait and Chris are euphoric on their honeymoon in Cabo and wanted me to give you both a big hug and kiss when I see you. They are still in awe!! Your staff coming to the house to deliver the flowers were exceptional…taking time to show the girls how to hold their bouquets so their beautify would be displayed in the best presentation as they walked down the aisle. A million thank-you’s to you and that great staff of yours that arranged such an impeccable display of beautify. love and captured this truly magical day for us!!! My mother, I know was there and smiling….Love you guys… and until the next wedding…”

“Bety and Marian,
Thank you for arranging the most beautiful flowers for our wedding day, and for working with my Mom to surprise us with the most wonderful ceremony arch. I can’t tell you how much it elevated our ceremony. You and your team are so talented and we appreciate all of your help! Happy New Year!”

Just wanted to let you and Bety know that the flowers for the wedding were perfect. All the guests raved about them and were so happy to take them home. The mantle piece was lush and magnificent and the bud vases and small arrangements were just right.The hydrangeas on the aisles were lovely and the bride and her bridesmaids were equally delighted with their bouquets. We noticed that someone thought to put the chairs with the hydrangeas at the head table and this was a terrific touch. Many thanks for your attention to detail.”

“Stapleton Floral designed the flowers for my bridal shower and wedding. The centerpieces and bouquets were stunning and exactly what I had envisioned. The whole team was a pleasure to work with and made the process very simple. I would highly recommend them to any bride-to-be. Thanks again for all your help throughout the process!”

“Working with Stapleton Floral was one of the easiest and most enjoyable parts of my wedding planning. The team was thoughtful, thorough and creative. They worked seamlessly with our venue and truly exceeded our expectations. The floral arrangements and centerpieces were absolutely perfect for our fall wedding. I would recommend them to any and all getting married in the Boston area!”

I just wanted to say thank you so very much for helping me with my amazing bouquet for last weekend!
The flowers were perfect! Considering I wasn’t completely sure what I wanted, some how you all managed to read my mind.
They were a fabulous centerpiece to the day!
I will certainly recommend you to others-
thank you for helping make it a special day.
“I have lived in South Boston for 10 years and I knew when it came to my wedding, I wouldn’t even consider going to anyone but Stapleton Floral for my flowers. I had a very specific vision and idea for what I wanted for my flowers and the reception decor and Bety and Marian brought this vision to life. Every detail was discussed and perfected. They made this very daunting process seem almost easy. They were open to any suggestion I had or any edit I needed to make. The day of the wedding, the flowers could not have been more beautiful. They were exactly what I had envisioned. I can’t tell you how many guests commented on how beautiful our bouquets were. The deep, rich color of the dahlia’s were the perfect fall flower to compliment our wedding. The centerpieces and cocktail reception decor was also perfectly executed. Simple tea lights and floating flowers made for a simple, modern aesthetic that created a beautiful glow throughout the wedding. I simply cannot thank both Bety and Marian enough for bringing this vision to life. It could not have been more perfect.”

Rich will see you at Valentines Day , and probably before that !!”
“When it came time to start our wedding planning, the idea of picking a florist out of a whole host of florists in the Boston area was extremely daunting. However, thinking back to the beautiful flower arrangements we had bought from Stapleton’s over the last few years, we knew without a doubt they were the florist we wanted to work with. Not only did they provide stunning flower arrangements and bouquets for our wedding, but they by far exceeded our expectations of what a florist typically provides for their clients. Yianni and Bety were both a pleasure to work with and helped us turn our vision for our wedding day into a reality. They also provided us with additional pieces, including a display for our guest place cards and a beautiful chalkboard sign, which is currently hanging in our living room as a fun memory of our wedding night. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the service and quality that Stapleton Floral provided, and we will continue to turn to them for exceptional flower arrangements in the years to come.”
Thanks once again,

“I chose Stapleton based on the impressive job they did at my cousin’s wedding nine years ago. Bety and Marian are not only talented but very enjoyable to work with. They were patient and helpful, as my vision for the wedding evolved into something we all loved. My guests commented on the artistic arrangements that enhanced both the ceremony and reception halls. My bouquet was my favorite accessory!
I know you and Bety will make many future brides very happy!”

I wanted to follow up with you and Bety and tell you that the flowers for Deanna and Brian’s wedding were truly gorgeous!
The purple and lavender accent colors in the bouquets and the Chuppa were perfect and worked beautifully with the soft lavender lanterns that were used to decorate the tent. And I loved the simplicity and elegance of the table centerpieces ( and took home three of them!!!!) I would have taken home every single arrangement if I could only have fit them all in our car!!! So thank you for all your help and being my mother of the bride buddy! Best of luck on your daughter’s wedding!
Best wishes and again please thank Bety for her beautiful work.” – Joanne B

“Thank you so much for making our wedding day a dream come true. I remember the first day I came in for a consultation – I had no clue what I was looking for, only that I wanted white flowers. You were so kind to walk me through a flower glossary and photos of different arrangements. I would have been lost without your patience and expertise. From the details of my bouquet – placing gems throughout the flowers, and wrapping the bouquet in the leftover silk and beads from my wedding gown – to the breathtaking centerpiece for our place setting card table, your work was remarkable. Thank you for guiding me throughout the decision process and making sure every detail was perfect. Our flowers were beautiful beyond my wildest dreams.” – Alyx & Drew

“Bety at the East Broadway location was so amazing and helpful! With only a months notice before my wedding she was able to sit down with me, look at a few pictures I had found on Pinterest, and figure out exactly what I wanted for flowers. Everything was so beautiful! She put together table arrangements, the bouquet, flowers for the cake, and flowers for my hair. Everything was delivered to the hotel and I didn’t have to worry about a thing! Bety was very professional but so friendly and fun at the same time. I stopped into the shop without notice several times before the wedding to talk to her and she always made time for me. She is so knowledgeable and has clearly had a lot of experience with all types of different events. I would definitely recommend her to everyone!” – Bianca & Michael

It has passed quite some time since my wedding, hope you will still remember me.
I just wanted to say “Thank you!” for considering all of my requests for the wedding bouquet. Much appreciated. It was lovely and it was everything that I wanted. This event was entirely prepared by my husband and I and not having to worry about this little important detail made my day a lot easier. Everyone has admired it and they are still doing it now when they are looking at the photos.
I have attached a photo of myself, my husband and the beautiful bouquet as a gesture of appreciation and to show how beautiful this has matched my gown and the event. Thank you again for your support and for making my event a lot less stressful.”
“The flowers are, by far, one of the most important factors at a wedding venue and we couldn’t have been happier with the beautiful flower arrangements and unique design that “Bety” at Stapleton’s provided. Each arrangement reeked of class and style and was precisely what we wanted.
The quality, freshness and colors exceeded our expectations and made the room a fairytale scene.
My daughter’s bouquet was exactly what she wanted and the bridesmaid’s bouquets were awesome.
The exceptional service we got from Bety at Stapleton’s and her team deserves a five star rating. We were delighted and highly recommend the team “on Broadway” who did a “Super JOB!!!”
The very happy Flynn Family!

It has truly been a pleasure working with you over the past year to plan my wedding.Not only did you take extra time to meet with me and my mother you came up with so many creative ideas to make our big day feel so special and personal to us. From the idea of growing shamrocks to using the tartan fabric to incorporate our Irish and Scottish heritage in our ceremony and reception to all of the details on my bouquet and cake decorations, You did not miss a single thoughtful detail! I have received so many compliments on all of the flowers you provided and everyone wanted to know “who was the florist they are amazing” I would not hesitate to refer any bride to Stapleton Floral you all did an amazing job!
When Mathew and I first began dating he bought me a dozen roses for competing the Boston Marathon from Stapleton. When I got engaged, my friends threw me apart and decorated with flowers from Stapleton. And on my wedding shower day, your beautiful flowers were again part of the celebration. It has obviously no question that I would have your talented work for our wedding day. Thanks again for working with me to bring all these ideas and details together. I could not have been happier with how everything turned out. Thanks again for everything! I hope to see you in South Boston soon but until then, enjoy the Summer!”
With Much Gratitude And Appreciation,

“Dear Bety and Yianni,
Words cannot describe how happy we were with the beautiful floral arrangements you created for our wedding. We were beyond thrilled to see everything on our BIG DAY! The words: “THANK YOU”, are not enough to describe how we feel. My favorite piece was my bridal bouquet, it was gorgeous! I was so happily stunned when I saw it. I was excited to walk down the aisle with my beautiful bouquet! The flowers, colors and artistic work you both did were amazing! J You made our special day, even more special with the pretty floral power that filled the room, which was vibrant and warm, perfect for our fall-themed wedding!”

I wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did with our flowers. I fully expected them to be really, really beautiful, but they exceeded my expectations by about 1000%! Our guests were gushing about them all night long. Some of the comments we received were:
“Those flowers could be on the TV show Platinum Weddings.”
“I bet your flowers were nicer than Chelsea Clinton’s.”
“Those are the most amazing flowers I have ever seen.”
Everyone was just blown away by how gorgeous they were – from the bouquets, to the escort card table, to the centerpieces.
We also really appreciated all your help and patience in picking them out and putting it all together; you were so helpful and made it so easy for us.
I know you’ll be hearing from Jay me as well when she gets back from her honeymoon, but I didn’t want to wait until then.
Many, many thanks and if you ever need a customer reference, we are your #1 fans.”

testimonialsI have been meaning to write to you to share how pleased we were with all of the flower arrangements and decorations you provided for the wedding. Everything was so beautiful and many of our guests have commented on the amazing flower arrangements! Although we discussed much in detail during our two consultations, floral design, like other art forms remained largely conceptual to me. The final product very much reflected the beauty and elegance that I had envisioned and for that I thank you! Your suggestions from everything from the sweetheart table to the mother’s bouquets to the draping around the guest name card table were truly the mark of a professional.”

As Geoff and I approach our first anniversary, we are reminded of just how beautiful the day was, especially the bouquets and arrangements that you created for us, every time we look at our wedding pictures. We are still amazed at how you listened carefully to our desires and then translated them into exactly what we wanted, only better. The oohs and aahs over the flowers started with the bridesmaids when the bouquets arrived at the house, and did not stop all night as guests made a point of commenting on the perfect, colorful, spring arrangements on the tables, especially the candles and cherry blossoms on the firplace mantle.
We met with several florists before we arrived at your shop, and within five minutes of talking with you we knew that you would be able to take our visions, add in your own knowledge, and create for us something more beautiful than we could have hoped.
Geoff and I are happy to provide you with a testimonial for your new website. Unfortunately our wedding website is no longer up, however once we receive the CD from the photographer we are happy to send copies of the flower pictures to you. Please just let us know what you would like.”
I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for the beautiful job you did on our flowers at the Seaport on April 7th. We received many compliments on the Gerbera Daisy centerpieces and the arrangements for my sister and I were perfect!
It was a pleasure working with you and your staff. I am so thankful for all your superb work.”

I just wanted to send a note of thanks to the staff for the most beautiful flower display I have ever seen. My husband and I were married December 29 200(?) at the Seaport and you truly helped to make it the most incredible day of our lives.
From the first meeting with Amy, my mother and I were impressed by her ability to embrace our vision. Your staff is truly gifted.
The bouquets and centerpieces were brilliant and I received so many compliments. I have recommended you to anyone who would listen.
Thank you again for all the care you took with our Wedding Day.”

“Yianni & Bety,
Just wanted to thank you for the gorgeous flowers for my wedding. Everything was perfect from the Flower girls’ wands to the centerpieces.
I sent along some images of the flowers. Hopefully, it will help other brides decide on flowers and reaffirm how beautiful Stapleton’s flowers truly make a wedding spectacular!”

I just wanted to take a minute of your time to thank you for the beautiful wedding flowers that you arranged for me. When I originally was looking for a florist for my wedding I was so nervous and intimidated. Other florists that I had talked to were not interested in what I wanted, just on how much money I would spend. Then I met you.
You make me feel so comfortable, listened to my ideas and then came up with ideas that would help to save me money.
The flower arrangements that you did for me were absolutely beautiful. The look that you achieved with the flowers was as if you could see the picture I had in my mind and then made it better. To this day, people have not stopped raving about the flowers and how they captured what the season of Fall looks like as well as the arrangements for the girls to carry. You were right, the bunches of wheat were unique, sophisticated and beautiful. There was not one person at the wedding that didn’t remark on how unique and what a great idea the wheat was, especially for this season.
I cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you put into my flowers from the church (which looked great) to the hall, my bouquet and the bridesmaids arrangements. Again, thank you so much for the beautiful flowers and for working with me, my budget and making me feel okay about everything. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate everything that you did for me.”

I want to thank you and your team for the outstanding display of flowers. You created a beautiful and lasting memory for me.”
I thank you,
Thank you for the tremendous job you did with the flowers for Mollie’s wedding. The details on each piece were wonderful; the berries, the choice of flowers, the shimmer in Mollie’s bouquet.
The guests at the wedding, as well as the hotel staff commented on how beautiful all the arrangements were. When we left the hotel on Sunday, guests checking in came over to admire the pieces as we carried them to the car.
Again, our sincere thanks and admiration!”

Thank you so much!

I was deeply touched with the beautiful Christmas floral vase, which you sent to me. It gave joy, beautiful scent and just wonderful remembrances time in my life when I taught design at Cathedral High. Little did I realize at the time that design and creativity would flow over to a florist store with the great name of STAPLETON!!!
You have a great ministry to make people happy and to take God’s creation and make beauty in our world. We so need the “joy a flower gives” in our hurting world.
You are in my prayers as are all you love. May you have a wonderful, prosperous and healthy New Year.”
With Loving gratitude,

Thank you so much for the part you played in making our daughter’s wedding celebration on December 18, 2005 at the MIT Faculty Club such a beautiful and memorable event.
I know that Alison felt working with you during the entire process, from the initial planning to the actual event was a delightful experience. The flowers were stunning! We heard nothing but wonderful comments from our friends and family about hoe beautiful the tables looked and how gorgeous the bouquets were. Thank you for your creativity, artistry and care!
Also, it was a pleasure working with Yianni the morning of the wedding. Please pass our good wishes on to him. Please share our appreciation with each and every person involved in making Alison and Michael’s wedding day so special.”

“I knew I wanted something unique for my wedding but was not exactly sure how to create the mood I envisioned. When I met with Stapleton Floral, I was given excellent guidance on how to create the look I wanted. Everyone was so accommodating and friendly. On the day of the wedding I received many compliments about the flowers. The quality of the flowers and the design was amazing, and the colors selected perfectly matched the sample of fabric I provided as a guide. Thank you, Stapletons, for making my wedding flowers better than I could have imagined. The flowers became more than decoration- they were an integral part of the wedding setting.”
Adam and I can not thank you enough for the beautiful work you did for our special day. The flowers were beautiful. The bridal bouquets, the church and the reception amazing!! Our wedding guests raved about our wedding and Stapletons long after it was over. Thank you again for making our wedding such a classy and elegant day. I couldn’t have been happier.”

People are STILL talking about the flowers from the wedding. More than one person has said that the flowers were not only a center piece, they were a conversational piece. I can’t thank you enough!”

“Tim and I heard wonderful accolades about Stapleton Florist so we were motivated to pursue them as a vendor for our June wedding. We arrived for our appointment with several magazine torn photographs in tow. Bety listened intently while we shared our vision. Her unique talent along with the many gifted florists who work at Stapleton brought our imaginative ideas to fruition. Walking into the ballroom at the Boston Harbor Hotel brought glowing smiles to our faces. The flowers and candles were breathtaking. The candles sparkled and made the room glow while the flowers brought warmth and color. Stapleton captured all our hopes and dreams. They were instrumental in making our wedding the start of a wonderful life together. From the bottom of our hearts, we truly thank you for your beautiful vision and immense talent.”
