The challenge in writing a review for Petit Fleur is that I don't know where to start; whether reviewing the planning process, the end result, Corrina, or her staff, I have nothing but glowing reviews.
First Impression: For my first meeting with Corrina, I brought a few pictures from a magazine and was probably all over the place in describing my 'vision.' Corrina is an exceptional listener, and after my rambling she articulated back to me quite succinctly exactly what it was I wanted… 'rustic, romantic, whimsical.' Hearing those words made me realize how good she is at understanding what we brides are trying to say, and it was clear to me that I wanted book her for my wedding.
The Venue: As Petit Fleur is located in Ferndale, Michigan, I was a bit nervous to ask if she would do a semi-destination wedding in northern Michigan, about five hours away. Upon mentioning that the venue was out of town, Corrina put me at ease by sharing the many venues they've done all over the country, and she was genuinely delighted to decorate what was a new venue for Petit Fleur - Mountain Flowers Lodge at the Homestead in Glen Arbor.
Planning: Seamless. I met with her periodically and often emailed her new ideas and shared pictures from magazines; she was happy to incorporate whatever flowers and décor that I wanted. Corrina provides the detail of her initial estimate upfront, and she was consistently cost conscious so as to stay within our budget. If I asked about a flower that was particularly pricey, Corrina took the time to explain where they are grown, why they are costly, and offer some perfect substitutes that were much less expensive.
Though I was excited to plan my wedding, the task of finding the right decor was overwhelming. Corrina showed me her linens, chargers, chairs, vases, candles (and the list goes on); what a huge weight lifted off my shoulders - she was happy to take care of anything I needed. Corrina is also very open to using new décor outside of what she has in stock; for example, we saw a picture with milk glass vases that we both loved, and Corrina was able to find vintage vases to add to her collection that looked outstanding on our head table. Corrina's attention to detail and consistent responsiveness are best in class.
The End Result: Breathtaking. Corrina brought all of the flowers to Glen Arbor from down state and made all of the arrangements right on site which resulted in fresh, gorgeous arrangements. The centerpieces for the reception were exceptional. The grooms boutonnieres were perfect - very unique - and the bridesmaid bouquets were lovely - exactly what I had wanted. I didn't know what to expect for my bouquet, as I had provided Corrina with a picture of a bouquet I loved from a wedding with a much different color scheme than ours. Corrina couldn't have made the vision a reality better than she did - my bouquet was more beautiful than I ever imagined it could be. The size, colors, dimension, and use of unique flowers made it (in my admittedly biased opinion) the most stunning bouquet I had ever seen. Corrina even took the time to hand-deliver my bouquet to me; that small gesture made it so personal.
My wedding was two months ago, and I am still hearing from guests about how beautiful the flowers were! What a pleasure it was to work with Corrina, and I wish her the best of luck as she continues to flawlessly exceed already high expectations!

Big thanks to Corrina and her staff for making my wedding reception gorgeous! Corrina listened to what I wanted and did not miss a beat in her execution! All of her suggestions were spot on and helpful. She took very good care of my husband and I. The centerpieces were glamorous and elegant. My bouquet was stunning! I highly recommend Petit Fleur! You will not be disappointed!!

I don't even know where to start! My wedding was this past weekend and we are beyond happy with the service and work of Petit Fleur. Corrina has been so personable, helpful and creative throughout this whole process. Whenever I needed anything or had any questions she was always there for me with answers. She worked with my budget and made suggestions so that I could still make my vision work. During our meetings, I described what I had in mind and she made it happen! When we walked into the ballroom on the day of our wedding we were blown away by how STUNNING the flowers and decorations looked! It was exactly what I had been dreaming about. I would recommend Petit Fleur to any bride-to-be. You will be extremely happy with your decision.

Petit Fleur Events did an exceptional job for my wedding and I would highly recommend using their services. Corrina's vision was beyond what I ever imagined and I was more than pleased with the results. She listened to my ideas and turned them into my dream wedding, more than I could've ever imagined. The centerpieces were outstanding. The flowers were top notch quality and the linens finished off the room. She managed to make an average looking room/venue look elegant and classy and was a joy to work with along the way. Her taste is impeccible. Corrina was always responsive and on top of things --or one step ahead. I also like the fact the she is a "one stop shop" and I didn't have to work with multiple vendors for rentals, flowers, etc. Their work is beautiful and you will not find better in the Detroit area. Highly recommend!

I had a January wedding in Detroit. It was a perfect day and was made especially perfect because of our amazing florist!!! Petit Fleur was my favorite vendor to work with for our wedding! They were professional, loyal to their customer, fun to work with and the most helpful compassionate people to work with!! Not only were we happy with our service our flowers were the most beautiful wedding flowers I have ever seen! I could not have been happier or asked for anything more. I am confident that everyone they work with receives the same quality and hard work! I refer every future bride to Petit Fleur. Thank you again Corrina for helping make my wedding day special, beautiful and absolutely perfect!!

Corrina was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is calm, understanding and knows what she is doing from a design and logistics perspective. As an out of state bride she was very easy to work with and answered a million of my random emails very quickly and thoroughly. When we were able to meet in person she took my colors and ideas and came up with an absolutely beautiful plan.
She was very accommodating with my restrictive venue and made sure everything was set up on time without worrying me about additional last minute logistic changes.
Upon arrival to the venue on our wedding day the set up was beyond amazing. The ceremony site, reception, flowers, table covers and chair rentals were perfect and we received many compliments on how beautiful everything was.
Everything surpassed my expectations. She was very easily one of the best vendors I worked with during the wedding planning process and continued to be friendly and helpful after the wedding was over.

Pete Fleur was amazing! I could not have asked for a better florist. My wedding was decor was beautiful and more than I imagined. They were very accommodating and meet with me on multiple occasions to make sure my day was perfect! I would recommend them to anyone and would use them again in a heartbeat.

Choosing Petit Fleur for our October wedding was the best decision we made. Corrina made the planning process enjoyable and was always able to help work within our budget while making my vision come to life. She worked with my mother and I to create the perfect arrangements, look and theme within the budget that I had discussed with her. She provided suggestions for flowers that would compliment my favorite flowers I wanted to include. When it was found out that purple hydrangeas I HAD to have were not going to fall within my budget she made it happen by hand painting white hydrangeas for all 29 centerpieces. They were breathtakingly beautiful. Everyone one commented about how beautiful the flowers were and how they complimented the wedding venue and theme perfectly.
Petit Fleur made the planning and the day of worry-free in regards to flowers. She was even available for a last a question 10minutes before I walked down the aisle to ensure our men had their flowers on properly. THAT IS AMAZING SERVICE! Having her, her husband and their team on point for my wedding made me feel so great. They are a great team to work with and make you feel 100% comfortable and trust everything they do because their work shows it.
I would highly recommend Petit Fleur for any event! And cannot wait to speak more of their praises!

Corrina was so easy to work with! We emailed back and forth with pictures of arrangements I liked. Not only did she do a great job, but it looked exactly like my original photos! My bouquet was gorgeous and the boutonnieres were the talk of the night! They set up and took down everything and I didn't have to worry about a thing! I would recommend this vendor 100 times over!

Choosing Petit Fleur for my wedding flowers was the best and easiest decision that I made. Corrina worked with me to create my vision within the budget that I had discussed with her. She provided suggestions for flowers and decoration and her professional skills made it all happen.
It was wonderful working with a vendor that was able to work with my suggestions for flowers that I liked while also providing input on other flowers that would coordinate and be in-season.
All of the flowers and decoration for my wedding day was fabulous - and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The bouquets showed up as planned, chair covers and charger plates were at the facility and most importantly the table-scapes were absolutely beautiful! So easy! Petit Fleur made the day stress-free, I knew that the flowers would be there and be beautiful.
The staff at our location said that the flowers and tables at the facility was the best that they had seen in years! Even more important was that I loved everything and so did our guests! A beautiful event that I will remember forever. I would highly recommend Petit Fleur for any wedding (or other) event!

My bridal bouquet was beautiful!!! Better than I could have ever imagined! The centerpieces were gorgeous!!! I had so many compliments!
I also opted to use their table cloths- all are original designs and handmade! My wedding was absolutely stunning. Corrina is very talented and easy to work with. Prices are pretty good too. I would have expected to pay a lot more for what we got. We were able to stay in our flower budget of appx $3500 -table cloths included!! :)

I can not believe how perfect my wedding flowers turned out! Corrina was able to perfectly capture my vision and created a sleek, modern feel. Our reception was at the Henry Ford Museum and it is a difficult venue to create an impact in but the Petit flour team prevailed! Every detailed was gorgeous and we received so many compliments. The flowers were fresh, lush and vibrant and I was even able to take one of the smaller arrangements with me on our honeymoon! Five days later and the dahlias, roses and peonies are still beautiful! My bouquet was the best part. I did not have any particular ideas about it and Corrina created something spectacular! She is obviously very creative and extremely passionate.
Corrina was also VERY EASY TO WORK WITH! I can not stress this enough. She was flexible when need be and very friendly. She seemed organized and professional and if I ever have an excuse to get floral arrangements again, I will definitely go through her. I am pretty sure I was a pain to deal with because I am very indecisive and, while normally highly organized, I was a not at all organized when it came to my wedding flowers.

Working with Corrina was wonderful! She did such an amazing job! The day of the wedding I was so pleased when I walked in to find that not only did she give me exactly as I asked, but more! She is a genius when it comes to decor and not having much of an eye for design myself, I was very pleased that her suggestions far exceeded my vision! She designed my ceremony as well as the reception, and my bouqet...all were amazing! She is the female David Tutera, for real! I can not thank her enough for the amazing work she did for my wedding! Definitely made my wedding dreams come true!

Overall, I am happy with my experience with Corinna & her staff at Petit Fleur. They arranged our beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, two different kinds of reception centerpieces, cocktail hour decorations, an altar arrangement, decorations for the pews, and a decorated broom for the broom jumping part of the wedding ceremony. The centerpieces and bouquets were especially beautiful! We had tall centerpieces and medium sized centerpieces in which Corrina used white teapots that we purchased. We also used gold chargers & navy satin napkins from Petit Fleur. Everything looked great and I've already referred Petit Fleur to a mother of a bride who is getting married next May. The flowers chosen (white casablanca lilies, hydrangea, delphinium, orchids, with a few roses) were exactly what we were looking for & more. There were a few things for which we had minor communication mix-ups, but they are not anything that would prevent me from using Petit Fleur if I had to do it all over again. 5 stars :)

I was searching for the perfect florist to create my special day for awhile and one day came across Petit Fleur. The first time I met Corrina I felt like I was speaking to one of my girlfriends. She was so fun and informative and got down to business right away.
I had a certain idea in my head and she exceeded all my expectations. Originally I went to her to only do my centerpieces, but I loved working with her so I did as much as I could with her. It included my linens, napkin rings, settings, chairs, etc. She was also basically like my wedding planner. She dealt with a lot of my wedding vendors and took on the extra phone calls, so my life would be a bit easier.
I would recommend her to everyone. Not only was she easy to work with, but she really did create the most beautiful day for me. She was also great with recommending other vendors to me as far as other areas.
Not only was she able to create a beautiful ambiance, but she also did it on a budget. She knows how to work with what she's got. I would definitely use her for any future occasion that I will have!

I searched high and low for the perfect florist and when I saw Petit Fleur's work on The Knot I immediately knew that they were exactly what I was looking for! Corrina's creativity and talent shines through in her work and I truly believe she is the best florist in metro Detroit. When I first saw my floral arrangements on the day of my wedding it took my breath away, they were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Corrina is so personable and easy to work with, she made the whole planning process a breeze! (And if you are a bride you know that is priceless!) She is truly crazy good at what she does and I would highly recommend her to everyone I know.

Petit Fleur did my floral design and my day of wedding coordination. My expectations tend to be very high, as I can be a micro manager and super picky! Petit Fleur exceeded my expectations BY FAR! As for the floral décor, I had the prettiest flowers in this history of weddings ;) Cori and her crew did such an amazing job. They were exactly as I wanted and were so fresh and beautiful. I received numerous comments on them describing how absolutely stunning they were. Additionally, I added the day of wedding coordination on to my itinerary last minute. I cannot express how important this was to make my day special. Carrie went so far above and beyond to make sure things were perfect! She worked her butt off and was so easy going. My experience with Petit Fleur was nothing short of wonderful. Petit Fleur treated my event with such special care and they will have my lifetime recommendation!!!

The quality and all that you get for the price with Corrina is truly unbeatable, I looked. Our wedding was 300 people and Corrina did 3 alternating centerpieces for us (2 flower arrangements, and candelabras) plus overlays, chargers and my bouquet for around $3500. She's also pretty straightforward with you, whether you like it or not, you should appreciate it in this business. The hall looked absolutely gorgeous by the time she was done with it, and after almost a month later I am still getting guests asking me who did it. It was clean, simple and elegant. If I had to dock points for anything in this review, it would only be for the minor issue that I wish I received a reminder email for the 50% payment due just prior to the big day. We ended up being late with ours, but with so many things going on, it's hard to keep track of everything and everyone! An email would've been helpful.

My flowers were beyond what I could even dream of! I changed my mind so many times and the final pic I sent to corrina was not even in the same category as what she gave to us!! I received so many compliments and love looking back at my pics because of how petit fleur transformed our ballroom! Thanks Corrina!

Corrina and Matt are a dynamic duo! Upon meeting with her I gave her lots of details that I wanted to bring to fruition. At my first appointment she set up a mock table with everything I described in the email. She didn't waste any time in letting me know that she had everything I needed in house to make my vision come to life. She worked with my schedule and with my budget and never suggested centerpieces that were outside of that. She was always readily available and responded to emails quickly.
At our final meeting she made double triple sure to dot her i's and cross her t's. Everything we discussed was there. The bouquets were full and beautiful. They lasted all night! Our guests are still talking about our centerpieces. I couldn't have asked for a better florist. She is amazingggggg!
