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.

I am in medical school and planning my wedding while studying was super stressful but working with Corrina made my life sooo much easier. I really did not have a clear vision of what kind of floral I wanted at the wedding but she was very helpful at guiding me and the end result was beautiful and exactly what I wanted. Corrina also provided the chargers, linens, and chivari chairs which was super convenient and insured that my wedding decor was cohesive. My bridal bouquet was absolutely stunning. I don't think there was a single guest at my wedding who did not comment on it. And last but not least Corrina and her hubbie are a lot of fun to work with. : )

Working with Petit Fleur was the right decision for me and my working style. I wanted to work with someone who was detail orientated, planned, and then executed the plan. You receive all of this and much more with Petit Fleur.
I worked with them for both my (local) wedding shower as well as my destination wedding. I was completely blown away by the pride and passion the team puts into each and every event. The thoughtful planning process really paid off and each event was unique in design and elegant in nature.
The team went above and beyond for the wedding, no stone was unturned and my expectations were exceeded!!
I would absolutely use them again and high recommend Petit Fleur to any and all of my family and friends.

Corrina and her staff did an amazing job for the reception decor. She is very accommodating even when you have last minute changes!
My husband and I keep getting compliments on how beautiful, elegant and sophisticated everything look. Many guests mentioned that the flowers were the most beautiful they had ever seen... I agree!
Everything looked exactly as I envisioned it. I recommend Petite Fleur to everyone!

I did a lot of research on many different flower companies prior to coming to Petit Fleur for a consultation. From the moment that I sat down with Corrina and Matt, we felt so comfortable with their designs and how they ran their company. My husband and I are very busy and leaving work is nearly impossible, we needed a florist that would communicate and plan via email- Corrina responded quickly to emails and would reach out to us with flower designs. We met twice (consultation and final review) and planned everything else over emails or telephone calls.
I was a bride that didn't know much about flowers- All I knew was that our wedding have a very vintage/romantic feel. Corrina spent the time emailing me pictures of flower designs/arrangements and created such GORGEOUS flowers for my special day! We felt so at ease with Petit Fleur because they have done ALOT of weddings at our venue, The Colony Club in Detroit. They knew the venue and what made the venue POP! The Colony Club is already beautiful, but the way that they transformed the ballroom, really took our breathe away!
My flowers for the venue looked AMAZING. Guests to date, still talk about how amazing our flowers were and how the venue could not have looked any better. They provided us gold charger plates and we went with an ivory chiffon chair wrap on gold chavari chairs. The place looked absolutely stunning!
Corrina spent the time costuming a special surprise for my brother in law- a "Antler Inspired" boutonniere. It meant so much to him that we made this for him! He and all the guests LOVED the surprise!
Overall, Petit Fleur did an amazing job! For the price and quality-- We would highly recommend them. They transformed The Colony Club into a night of winter romance! We wouldn't have done anything differently, everything was absolutely perfect!

Corrina is fantastic! Corrina is the owner of Petit Fleur and the person whom I was in contact with the entire time! My wedding was cutting it a little close at time of contact with florist. She is full of ideas and was very helpful with suggestions! My only complaint was the flower girl arrangement on arrival was absolutely beautiful but as the day went on, I recognized that there was no water in the bag that held the water for each individual bouquet. So by the time we walked down the aisle the bouquet was a little droopy. But as I stated earlier upon arrival they were beautiful and all other bouquets were thoroughly watered! At the end of the day I was extremely happy with the services rendered!!

Petit Fleur Events supplied our centerpieces, flowers, candles, chuppah and linens. Corrina worked with us throughout the wedding planning process in meetings and by e-mail and she truly made my dreams come true. She transformed the same room from ceremony to reception in 30 minutes and everything was absolutely perfect. Multiple guests told us it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended and, of course, we agreed!

Corrina & her staff are amazing! My (now) husband and I live in Chicago and had our wedding in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. As such, we did the majority of our planning remotely. Corrina did a wonderful job accommodating our busy schedules and she and her husband were a pleasure to meet and work with in person.
Not having much time to devote to planning, Petit Fleur is especially great in that we were able to work with Corrina to pick our table linens, chairs, and chargers.
As for the flowers, from top to bottom Petit Fleur exceeded all of my expectations. I pulled several pictures from Pinterest to show Corrina what I had in mind. Knowing that such photos are often impossible to replicate on a reasonable budget, I was blown away by the end results. The quality and workmanship was amazing. Corrina was able to take the handful of pictures that I showed her and create something truly beautiful. I would not have changed a single thing. In fact, we were so impressed that my sister is using Petit Fleur for her wedding this May.
I'm extremely grateful for all of their hard work and so pleased that we chose Petit Fleur.

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!

I recently used Petit Fleur Events services for my 10/19/13 wedding. Everything from initial meeting to tear down went so smoothly. Corrina was on top of it all. She has wonderful ideas about decor AND she understands what staying within budget means- you can't beat that. The design fit the venue perfectly! When I arrived at Meadow Brook an hour and a half before my ceremony, she was just finishing setup. I loved my bridesmaids bouquets and Corrina even made a super cute pomander for my bouquet! I never had a single concern. I would definitely recommend Petit Fleur for any event you have!

Corrina did an amazing job with our September 21, 2013 wedding. She made our reception location at the Royal Park Hotel beautiful and warm and inviting. The flowers were gorgeous and the amber lighting and drapery made everything feel very cozy. The linens were fabulous and really brought to life our chosen color scheme. I highly recommend her services. She is also easy to talk to and will tell you if what you have chosen may be unrealistic. We really appreciated her honesty.

I was referred to Corrina of Petit Fleur by my cousin who was married two years ago. I knew the work of Corrina and had no hesitation in choosing her to be my florist. Her extensive knowledge of flowers and decor is impressive ability to give you what you want in your budget is remarkable. Everything that was provided from floral centerpieces to table lines, votives, chivari chairs, table numbers bouquets and corsages was everything I envisioned it to be. I thank you for making my wedding fabulous :-)

Petit Fleur is a wonderful vendor. They made the floral part of my wedding planning easy. On the day everything went smoothly and the flowers were beautiful!!! Everyone commented on how the centerpieces were gorgeous and my bridesmaids complimented their bouquets all day. I would highly recommend Petit Fleur as they not only do flowers but they do linen and coordinating. All in one it seems.

Like most brides I religiously researched all vendors on all of the wedding websites. That's how I found Petit Fleur Events. The reviews were good & the website was very nice so I set up an appt. I'm SO happy I did! My mother in law is a proffisonal interior designer & has impeccable tast. I also love design so my mother in law & I were very excited for our meeting. Corrina was very quick to respond to every email & picture I sent prior to our first meeting. At the meeting Corrina was very organized, professional & amazing at seeing the version in my head. Once Corrina had our budget she work to get us everything we wanted. We never felt pressured to go over or spend more, at one point my mother in law felt it might be good to do the large floral arrangements on every table instead of staggering them on every other table. This would have made Corrina a lot more money. Corrina advised against this, telling us it would be too much & take away from the beautiful venue. Speaking of the venue, Corrina knowes her wedding venues! She gave us the inside scoop on Lovett Hall at The Henry Ford. She knew what we should ask for & what we shouldn't. Corrina also knew their historical limitations in terms of decorating & their crazy time restrictions for vendors. This made planning so much easier. She thought of things I never would have, ever! Now for the stuff that means the most to bride to be's! Corrina went above & beyond what anyone could possibly expect. I know this is something people say in reviewes all the time but wow is it true in this case! The day of my wedding Corrina was at Lovett Hall setting up every last detail. She was comfortable getting everything she needed directly from them & never expected me to. Myself & my bridesmaids showed up late, right before the ceremony was to begin & Corrina & her husband were still there! She made sure every Grandma, mother, father, flower girl & groom/ groomsman had their designated bouquet, corsage & boutonnière! She even made sure my fiancé was well hidden, not to see me as we arrived! At that point after having such a hectic morning I was beyond frazzled. Two seconds after walking in she was so kind & sweet helping calm my frazzled nerves. She even noticed I was clutching the brouch that was supposed to be pinned to my bouquet. One minute later Corrina had it pinned on perfectly & the beautiful bouquet in my hand! Do you think she left now that we were in our line ready to walk out? Nope! She stayed & help get us all in our correct order being the coordinator for the Henry Ford was out in the garden area with the waiting guests & groom. At the point where they started to play the song I was to walk down to Corrina took over. She noticed the double doors would not stay open. How awkward for my dad & I to have to push them open to get out to the garden. Next thing I know Corrina has an employee taking care of the doors while she helped me & my dress flow out the open doors gracefully! Honestly what florist does that?!? In a nutshell I could not have asked for a more amazing person to work with! People said things like, "your flowers were the most beautiful I've ever seen & smell just as beautiful!" I've been married for almost 2 months & people are still telling me my wedding looked like the ones in magazines. Some of my favorite pictures are the ones of the tables, overlays, candles & arrangements! THANK YOU CORRINA! You made our special day even more special! You are truly amazing!

Words cannot express how happy my husband and I were with everything Petit Fleur did for our wedding! The room was breathtaking, every single detail was flawless and it was BEYOND anything I expected. I was speechless after we first saw it - I literally had no words! Not only was everything beautiful individually, but also seeing how it tied together was just spectacular! I don’t think any of our guests passed by us without commenting on how beautiful the floral and decor was! The flowers were gorgeous and meticulously assembled, the linens were spotless and laid out perfectly - it looked as if every crystal was planned and placed with care! Both of our parents were overjoyed for many reasons that day, but the beautiful decor made the atmosphere stunning, romantic, and breathtaking! Petit Fleur truly took my vision and made it better than I could have ever dreamed up! Corrina is an artist and perfectionist. We can’t thank the whole staff enough for everything they did for us and all the accommodations they made with a smile on their face! We HIGHLY recommend them over and over again!

I am so happy we went with Petit Fleur! They had everything to make sure the day went smoothly and looked amazing. We did our flowers, chairs, sashes, ceremony details, etc, all with the same vendor! It was so nice to have a polished look and everyone noticed the details! Corrina really understood the look we were going for, and even though I was a little nervous never seeing the exact flowers beforehand, I could not have imagined anything more perfect. Thank you so much for being there everystep of the way!
