FALL IN LOVE: Jenny VanHoutte is a flower farmer and artist at GardenView Flowers in Grand Rapids, Ohio. With freedom to follow her own inspiration, Jenny created a lush, romantic ‘Secret Garden’ scene in front of our old, weathered barn for the intimate wedding ceremony. From the roses in my hair to the cascading beauties falling in a loose, linear pattern from the dreamy arch, her touch is breathtaking and brilliant. However, our reception style forced Jenny to conjure up something completely different for table arrangements. She mixed a cornucopia of blooms, wildflowers, seed pods, wheat and dried peppers into our cowboy boots. The Sweet Annie still smells wonderful throughout the house. Somehow, Jenny magically captured the essence of an untamed, fall meadow to go along with the navy blue bandana placemats, as well as the place cards nestled into apples from Bennett’s Orchard. Thank you, Jenny!
Can I just say WOW!!! GardenView took my breathe away on our special day. I cannot imagine ever using any other business for flowers ever again. The execution of the vision for our wedding was spot on, I don't know how Jenny did it but she exceeded my expectations and made our space look like a fairytale garden I cannot wait to use her again and again and again. Our venue was Registry Bistro and she was able to make a hard space look fresh and brought it to life. Jenny also was understanding of changes we made through the process and was easy to communicate with and fast to respond.(Hey she has to be really good if I am on my honeymoon writing this review)
I could not have asked more from Jenny! My bouquet and centerpieces exceeded my expectations and were absolutely beautiful. I also love the fact that they have their own wildflower farm and pick the flowers themselves. Jenny was so easy to work with, I would absolutely recommend her!
Oh my goodness-The flowers for our wedding were more then we could have ever imagined. Thank you for exceeding all of our expectations and making some truly beautiful arrangements! We can't stop looking at the pictures! You were such a pleasure to work with! Thank you again
Jen did my bouquet for our wedding on October 14th. She also made up the most beautiful smaller version for my sister. I was more than thrilled when I picked them up the day before.. they were the most unique flowers mixed with rustic elements that fit perfectly for our outside, fall ceremony. She packaged up the flowers complete with the cutest name tag.. vase, with stones at the bottom, and even included a a towel to wipe the water off so that it didn't get my dress wet. To say I was impressed with all the small details is an understatement. I will post other pictures when I get them back from the photographer. Thank you Jen so much! I would recommend her to anyone!
Everything was perfect for our wedding! We had so much fun through the whole process. Jenny was very accommodating for what we were looking for. I have went back several times for other events that I have hosted and will continue to go. Thanks a million!
Jenny did the flowers for our wedding in May, and they were absolutely PERFECT! The arrangements were exactly what I was hoping for. She was so kind, very responsive, and all around great to work with. I can't recommend Jenny and Garden View flowers enough!!
Thank you so much for your hard work to make the flowers perfect for our wedding day. We have received so many compliments from guests and friends. You far exceeded my expectations. Throughout the entire process you made me feel so comfortable and confident that the flowers would be exactly what I wanted!

Jenny and GardenView Flowers, no one else compares in the area. I don't know how Jenny did it but I was blown away, everything was perfect! I cannot imagine ever using any other business for flowers ever again. The execution of the vision for my (our) wedding was spot on,... Read More Jenny exceeded expectations. I gave her a document of ideas and pictures and we talked about making it all 'come together' and she did it! I don't know how she did it but what was in my head was created by her and her team. Jenny made our hard space look like a fairytale garden and really brought it to life. My flowers and my bridesmaid's flowers were unbelievably gorgeous too. As for communication and overall business aspects I was also very impressed. Jenny was understanding of changes I (we) made through the process and was always quick to respond. Never have I had such an easy transaction with someone. I tend to be a bit OCD and Jenny was even able to help put me at ease. Out of all my vendors, even my wedding coordinator, I enjoyed working with Jenny the most!
You did an amazing job creating the wedding flowers of my dreams! I cannot thank you enough for all the time and hard work you put into our centerpieces, bouquets and hairpieces. Everything you did was so beautiful, amazing and perfect. Thank you so much! We had so many wonderful compliments on the flowers especially at the church. With warm regards and lots of love!
Thank you for creating the most beautiful wedding flowers ever! Everyone raved about the design and color scheme. You were a pure job to work with throughout the process. Thank you again and again.
Jenny did the flowers for our wedding and they were beyond perfect! I received so many compliments on them! To say I loved them would be an understatement. She was so sweet, kind, and easy to work with! Definitely the best wedding vendor I worked with throughout our wedding! Would recommend her to anyone!
I can't thank Jenny enough!!!! She did the flowers for our wedding almost a year ago and I still talk about them. She seemed to know exactly what I wanted even though I wasn't sure myself; it was perfect! I was able to dry many of them and have them to this day. THANKS AGAIN!
Thank you so much for EVERYTHING you did to make our wedding so beautiful! Every time we look at our wedding photos we are reminded of how choosing you two to grow and arrange our gorgeous flowers was one of the best decisions we made.
Love, Allison and Mike
