Hi Countryside friends,

OM frickin God!  The bouquet that was sent on Saturday ... Absolutely gorgeous!  It has to be one of my all time favorites EVER! Thank you, thank you.  I am loving it!

Love to everyone,




The wedding flowers were absolutely "drop dead gorgeous"!!  Susan was so happy with them, especially her bouquet.  I just wish you could have heard all the compliments we had for the flowers.  The centerpieces were not only beautiful, but there is a glass plate underneath that made it easy to give them away. I kept three centerpieces and the unity candle flowers to use for the brunch we had Sunday, and have the altar flowers in my home.  I will take some of them in a smaller vase tomorrow to a garden club member that lives in an assisted care home. She will be thrilled.

The altar flowers, cake, unity candle, corsages, boutonnieres and centerpieces all were so beautiful.  There are no words to tell you how happy I am.




My husband and I were married this past October at the Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie and after a great amount of research, phone calls and meetings on my part I ended up going with Jon for our flowers.

As somebody that works in a service industry, I was looking for somebody that would not only work within my budget and have a creative eye, but somebody that would also provide excellent customer service and actively listen to that I was looking for from my wedding and how the flowers would work into the final design.  I thoroughly understood that I am not a florist and left a great deal of the creativity up to him.  I let him surprise me with some of his choices and I wasn't let down. 

My bouquet was AMAZING. Fall colors, interesting textures, and he even added this incredible branch with berries that changed colors through the evening as the exterior husks dried and opened up.  He understood what I meant by contemporary plants yet traditional feel.  He wasn't just willing to work with my sentimental pieces that were around the room, but got excited and embraced my ideas. 

While I left a great deal up to him, I still left feeling that it was a collaboration.  My centerpieces were focal points on the tables and the contrasting ghost pumpkins for the fireplace mantel filled with branches and orchids and piled with flowers tied the room together and ended up in every group of photos that were sent my way from my guests.  And my flowers weren't only commented on by the guests at my wedding, but just about every staff member I bumped into that evening and the next day.  They were breath taking.

I honestly can't praise Jon enough and would highly suggest his work to anybody.  He helped make my day absolutely perfect.

I am so happy to recommend Jon for your wedding day florist!  He is the most creative human beings I have ever meant.  We were married three years ago, in June at Salish Lodge and our guest's are still talking about our unique and gorgeous flowers!

I gave Jon a picture of a bride's bouquet that I liked.  He took that picture and RUMPED it beyond my wildest dreams! He created my brides maid and flower girls bouquet...each different but coordinating...the groomsmen all had a touch of Jon on their lapels...simply elegant with a splash of color!  The tables at our reception were spectacular each flower arrangement different depending on the shape and size of table.

I found Jon to be the easiest, most fun and talented of all the vendors we hired for our wedding celebration. He exceeded all my expectations from the very first meeting. Our wedding was beautiful...Jon's vision (which exceeded my expectations) is still being talked about three years later!

My husband reminded me that we loved working with Jon so much...he also created flowers for a surprise birthday party for me last year at Cave B winery...once again...Spectacular!

We can't say enough good things about Jon and his team at Countryside.

Congratulations and good luck on your wedding day.

Dear Patty, 

Thank you so much for your help in decorating for our wedding!  Our day was Perfect!!  I have to say, the aisle, tent and altar looked better than I imagined!  I look at the pictures and love it even more each time.  We have received lots of compliments on the flowers too.  You were an important part of our day!

I just wanted to tell you how much we all LOVED the bouquets and boutonnieres.  They were so beautiful I was literally jumping up and down when I saw them.  My mom cried.  When we met for the 1st time you calmed me down and reassured me that you would make it beautiful & special & I couldn’t have pictured anything more beautiful.  You nailed it on the head. 

Thank you.

I wanted to thank you for your spectacular work! And a special thanks for coming back and finishing the cake - it arrived about 10 minutes after you left.  The cake was stunning! The throw-away bouquet worked very well and I've attached a photo.  Katie will send some more (probably better) photos after she gets them back from her photographer.  She was so happy with the flowers, she said to tell you everything was amazing!

I still wouldn't hesitate to recommend Renton Voc-Tech - the food was really good and the servers were excellent.  I think we probably just had a mis-communication between the bakery and the catering manager over the time for the cake.  With so many moving pieces, I'm willing to cut them some slack.

We came to Countryside because they had gone the extra mile for us years ago.  We appreciated Jon's enthusiasm, imagination, creativity and also his recommendations for other vendors.  He was absolutely a blast to work with!  I would highly recommend Jon and Countryside for any event.

Thanks again,
Joan Elmquist
