I got married in February 2017 with little notice and chose to work with Pine State because of their use of organic local flowers and their style. Even though I was already familiar with their work I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by what they created for us. Maggie was incredible to work with - very quick to respond, easy to communicate with, laid back, open to hearing my vision, and friendly. She totally got the look that I was going for. She rolled with the last-minuteness of all of it with ease. Three days before my wedding I asked Maggie to make a comb with flowers on it for my hair and it was absolutely stunning. I still can't believe how talented they are at Pine State. They create a look that is stylish, natural, fresh, and unique, which is exactly what I wanted. This among their exclusive use of local flowers really sets them apart from other florists. Every single person at our wedding was so impressed by the look that Pine State helped us to create. I couldn't recommend them more highly. –Claire, February 2017 Wedding at The Durham Hotel
Working with Maggie and the team at Pine State Flowers was so wonderful! They absolutely blew us away with their creativity and attention to detail. Thank you guys so much! We never could have imagined how stunning your work would be!!

Maggie hit it out of the park when she did the flowers for my daughters wedding. I've never seen such gorgeous, fresh, fragrant flowers before, and we were thrilled to death with everything. Cara showed Maggie pictures of shapes and styles she liked and left the design in Maggie's expert hands. Everything was just perfect. Thank you a million times for making her big day super special!

Maggie and Pine State Flowers did a phenomenal job at our wedding -- they were wonderful and easy to work with. We loved the local, sustainable approach and natural designs they took in crafting the flowers for us. We were planning our wedding from out of state and did not have the luxury of meeting in person or visiting the shop. We worked mostly via email and shared our likes, dislikes, and various ideas via stock photos and a Pinterest board. We knew we weren't going to see the final results until the day of our wedding and hoped for the best. The arrangements were absolutely gorgeous and we had guests fighting over centerpieces to take home at the end of the night. We were also able to stay within our budget and compared to other vendors, the quality of the arrangements and service exceeded our expectations. A big thank you Maggie and Pine State Flowers for helping with our perfect day! –Amanda and Brad, August 2017 Wedding at The Cotton Room
Maggie and Pine State Flowers couldn't have done a better job on the flowers for my wedding and reception. Maggie was able to see my vision when presented with various pictures and descriptions (ambiguous!)-- I cried when her girls dropped our bouquets off at the hotel! I cannot speak her praises enough. She is also budget conscious and can give you different options based on what you want within different price ranges. Her service was impeccable- her girls dropped off ceremony flowers at two different hotels and the chapel. In addition, I underestimated the # bouts I needed and when we realized right before the ceremony what had happened, she whipped up an additional bout and had it delivered to the chapel. Support local, have personalized service, and work with kind people who truly love what they do- book pine state flowers!

Pine State Flowers provided us the most beautiful flowers ever! We loved all the arrangements, they were very responsive and flexible for us day of, and on top of that are environmentally focused. We loved that our wedding flowers were locally sourced as well. Definitely would recommend! –Maggie and Paul, June 2018 Wedding at The Museum of Life & Science
Maggie is amazing! Not only is Pine State one of the most reasonably priced place around for wedding flowers, they are also absolutely beautiful. Even though we didn't order enough to qualify for delivery & set-up, she still worked with us to create something unique that suited our style and wedding colors. If you want total control over your specific flowers and colors, this probably isn't the place for you. But Maggie's arrangements were way better than anything I could've imagined. They were perfect! –Julia and Andrew, June 2018 Wedding
I got married on October 29 at Duke Gardens. Of course, the flowers at the Gardens are gorgeous, but Maggie was up to the challenge of topping them with the stunning arrangements she did for the wedding. I really like Maggie's approach of using locally-grown flowers in her arrangements. Of course, that means you have to trust Maggie to make something beautiful with the flowers she has available, and I'm so glad I did. When I walked into my reception and looked at the arrangements, it was like she had read my mind for what I wanted for the space. My bouquet was beautiful, as were the ones for my attendants. Maggie - thanks for making my wedding extra special and beautiful! –Jennifer and John, October 2016 Wedding at Duke Gardens
Maggie created the most beautiful bouquet I have ever seen for our wedding! The shop is really unique in that it only sources local flowers, so you have to trust her to create with what she has. I am so grateful that I did- she is so thoughtful and creative, everything was perfect! We had several meetings in the months leading up to the wedding to talk about our ideas and budget constraints and what type of flowers might be available for an October wedding. She was always responsive and flexible and organized - the least stressful to work with of all of our vendors. And day of, it was even better than what I had imagined. My bouquet was lush and organic-looking and fresh and loose and just perfect. She was there to set up our massive flower garlands on all the tables and even to help hang our ceremony arch. I feel so lucky that I found her (before everyone finds out about her and she books up forever!). The flowers really pulled everything together in a very special way. Thanks Maggie! –Shelby, October 2015 Wedding at The Rickhouse
