Vendor Review: Fresh by CarryAnn

Fresh by CarryAnn may just be the single most helpful vendor I had on my side during my wedding. If I can give you any advice at all, make the drive to Mt. Juliet. I can guarantee that you will never regret it! First off, she is the cutest little thing you will ever see! Second, she was soooo much less expensive than any other florist we got quotes from and for the exact same thing! I was amazed when I got a $3000 quote from Enchanted Florist...and when I took the exact same idea to CarryAnn she got it done for $1600. Phe-nominal!!! She also was basically like the wedding planner, she got to Scarritt as soon as it opened, decorated EVERYTHING and then took it all down afterwards. She even transported things to 3rd aVenue from the ceremony (ahhh-mazing)! She decorated and supplied every decoration we needed for the reception and then came back at 1:00am to come pack it back up! She loaned us every single vase for our orchids so we didnt have to buy any (I'd say about 25 in all). Now this may be standard for florists but it sure made me feel special!

I even got a cute little mockup of my bouquet, even though I didn't have Bridal Portriats done!!

She also came in and set up my cake topper (which I sent to the Reception w/o any instructions apparently) and they contained NO FLOWERS! If it wasn't for her the top of my cake would have been naked!! She went out of her way to make sure that all aspects of my day were perfect and I didn't have to lift a finger... we kept all the orchids and the GORGEOUS floral arrangements that lasted for weeks! Seriously, they were still perfect when we came back from our Honeymoon!

The only thing I could even think of that wasn't just perfection was our billing, she didn't charge our credit card for the deposit. But that's it! We had a contract so I wasn't worried about it and as it showed, I shouldn't have been...she was one of the best decisions I made!!!

To book Fresh by CarryAnn you can visit her online at and I promise you will not be disappointed!!! You'll even get a little surprise when you book her for your wedding! (I'll never tell but I promise, it made us feel very very special!!!)

It's so nice to have smaller vendors do such a good job. REALLY nice of you to tell of a job well done! Some of the "better" local vendors really aren't all that.

That is awesome that you found a vendor that you were at ease with and didn't have to worry about. It makes life so much easier when you can put your trust in your vendor! I felt the same way about our florist!
