I never thought I would need a wedding planner but I knew I always wanted one after watching Father of the Bride and The Wedding Planner. Just after getting engaged back in December 2019, after the immediate pressures and questions from our friends and relatives and my OCD and anxiety, my fiance was the one who pushed me to seek a great planner and secure them for he would be the one to benefit the most! It didn’t take me all that long to find Peter James. I sent him an email and then happened to run into him at a Wedding Show – my fiance Matt had to push me (for some reason I was feeling shy!) and I introduced myself. From there, it was magic and Peter took the reins and within just a couple of months, we had all of our big vendors secured and booked and had over a year to relax until our big day. Along with planning our wedding, Peter instantaneously became our florist who after getting to know me over the many months we stayed in close contact over email, texts, and in person, created the MOST LAVISH wedding floral artistry I had ever seen!!! He took my dreams and style and turned it all into a reality. I was left breathless so many times on my wedding day: but not from anxiety — from awe! I will be forever grateful to Peter James. He and his team were there from before the start to way after the end. I don’t have enough good words to say except: Thank you, Peter. You’ve become a dear friend and I love you so much – my wedding was not the last event for us 🙂

Peter started as a florist who ended as a very dear friend of mine. My now husband and I got married throughout the pandemic of COVID 19. At first, being the independent and strong willed person I am, I attempted to handle the cancellations, rescheduling, and re-planning by myself. At his first hearing of this, I remember Peter calling with a plan. He had found a new venue (better than before) that was flexible in everything. I also remember him coming to our house that day and encouraged us that we would be having our wedding in June of 2020 and that he would be planning it without us having to worry about a thing. Peter delivered that and so much more. Through the chairs, tables, place settings and of course the beautiful flowers he truly delivered a day that we will remember forever. It was such a relief to have a wedding put together that I didn’t have to stress about one bit. I can’t even get started about our beautiful reception this past July of 2021. After finding the perfect venue, Peter put together something out of all of my pinterest dreams. I truly started to cry when I saw my flower bouquet, the tent set up, and the beyond amazing stretch of greenery and peach roses along my bridal parties farm house tables. Peter and I have learned how to work together, compromise, and see each other’s views throughout the past few years. He knows what is best for you, but also takes your conversations and differences to heart. I truly feel that this is a quality he has that works with all of his clients no matter how long he works with them. Thank you will never be enough for all Peter has done for my family and I! You took the planning of wedding stress away and worked so hard to make our day(s) beyond perfect. Thank you, Peter (& Jim!!!!!)

I’m not sure where to even start…. I hired Peter James Florals back in November 2019 for an October 2020 wedding. We met him at a wedding expo, and immediately clicked. He was the first vendor I hired for my wedding. I didn’t have a venue or anything yet, but I had Peter James! I hired him not only for all of our floral needs but also as my wedding planner. I gave him my vision for my flowers and my centerpieces and he started pulling stuff up on his computer that looked great. In July of 2020 we knew we would need to postpone as our venue still had not opened yet because of the Pandemic and had no plans of opening until 2021. We selected a new date and it was in July of 2021. I went back to Peter expressing that I wanted to rethink my flowers since it would be summer now and not fall. He was patient and kind and we recreated all of my bouquets, bouteneires, corsages, centerpieces, moon gate, etc. He was excited to help. My venue was very strict so not the easiest to work with; actually, quite difficult, but Peter did it with grace. To no fault of his own, our freeze dried petals didn’t arrive along with all the rest of our flowers. They were supposed to line the aisle on both sides and also be something for our flower girl to drop. When Peter called to tell me, I didn’t panic. He offered up a solution immediately, and I trusted him fully. Needless to say, my aisle looked 1000 times better than I believed it would have before. Our flowers were to die for; beyond anything I could have imagined them to be. Breathtaking, really. The customer service we received from Peter James – wedding planner and florist turned friend, is something that cannot be matched by anyone else.

I met Peter at a bridal show as a newly engaged 26 year old, with no idea as to how much work and planning a wedding was going to be. After my first meeting with him I knew instantly he was a necessity to planning and was going to take so much work off my fiancé and I. Peter made the process simple by trying to simplify each vendor. He would tell us a little about each, choose his top two or three and set up all our meetings. This helped by not having too many options and getting overwhelmed. Early on in the process it was apparent Peter was more than just a planner, he truly was a friend to us. If we were out for many hours we would grab lunch and it always was a fun day when we were together.

Photography, DJ, and venue were all quickly picked. Whenever we were at a meeting Peter seemed to read my mind when I was unsure about something and asked all the questions we did not know to ask. This made choosing details and pricing easier. Peter also was my florist which he KILLED it with. My bouquet was beautiful and he also decorated the ceremony with beautiful lanterns, and a beautiful arch. Peter’s background was working in the floral industry before Peter James Events so he is a pro there and has been dealing with events for years.

The week of the wedding the stress really kicked in and he made sure to call me and check if everything was going well for us. He even came to our rehearsal and made a surprise visit with a beautiful arrangement! When the wedding day finally came he was there bright and early with his team of assistants. They took care of every detail from bringing my homemade decorations, making sure groomsmen left on time, escorting grandmas in, and just being there for Tom, I and both our families. There is no price you can put on having someone like Peter for your wedding. Planning and getting ready for one of the biggest days of your life can be so overwhelming and when you have a set team of people to help you along the way, it really does help every detail come together. I can’t recommend Peter James Events enough and am so thankful to you all for making my wedding everything I ever imagined. I love you guys! ~Lauren & Tom

My daughter was just married on the beach on 9/29/18. Working with the most marvelous Peter James of Peter James Events made my job as “mom of the Bride” Easy! We had all kinds of ideas and photos to show Peter- He listened to me here in NJ and to my daughter living on the West Coast and then his amazing artistic talents went to work. He actually envisioned a plan right in front of me and he made what could have been a difficult process, seamless and simple! I knew I went to the right wedding planner and floral design studio. People are still commenting about our beautiful romantic tables of rose petals and lanterns with real candle light! Danielle, our day of coordinator and trust me when I say we could NOT have functioned without her!! Her compassion and kindness as well as expertise made me relax from the moment we met! She called and made arrangements that I just couldn’t possibly do on my own! Danielle makes your life as Mom/Dad of the bride so much better! If you are searching for flowers, an artist like Peter James and his outstanding team have superior knowledge of the business and incredible experience ! Peter James Events must be your next call if you are planning a special day! THANK YOU Peter James and Team! Truly happy to share photos and our experience! We are waiting on the professional photos but we will upload a few taken from Iphones! ~Laural Thurston Coultas and Family

We had the most incredible experience with Peter and his team. Peter was so personable, attentive and easy to work with. We gave him our budget and he stayed in it!! That was a huge relief for us. We used Jim for our day of coordination and himself and Peter were the DREAM TEAM. We cannot put into words how helpful they were. Their attention to detail, their jokes and professionalism made our day seamless. We cannot thank them enough for all they did to make our day absolutely perfect. We HIGHLY recommend them, you will not be disappointed. They really go above and beyond to make sure you are both happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you Peter James Events.~Melaine & Steve

I hired Peter James Events as a “day of” planner. I thought that meant they would help me on the “day-of”. Boy was I wrong! Peter & his staff were available to me via email the entire time I was planning my event! They answered me promptly & wisely. Peter helped me figure out what was worth my money & what wasn’t. Do not hesitate to hire this fantastic team! The are professional, knowledgeable & hysterically funny to boot. Peter also did my floral arrangements, which were gorgeous. ~Bar Mitzvah

What an incredibly stunning, perfect wedding day!! Peter and James were incredibly attentive to every detail without being intrusive. Their attentiveness and expert experience created a very beautiful, smooth, well executed, memorable wedding day! Everyone was treated with patience and genuine compassion – as if we were family and I feel as if they are now family to us!
There are no words to do justice to describe the absolute STUNNING bridal bouquet and reception centerpieces! Guests are still raving about them!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Peter James Events for your floral and planning needs. I’d give them 10 stars if that was possible! ~Casey and Darryl

Peter and Jim are amazing to work with! Planning a wedding can be stressful, but their attitudes about the whole process really help to relax a stressed out bride! My mom and I asked Peter if he could incorporate my mom’s veil into my bouquet and he went above and beyond what we had in mind. It was beautiful, along with all my other flowers and centerpieces. Jim was a lifesaver when I was having issues getting all my vendors on the same page. He kept everything and everyone moving along and on schedule, especially the day of. I’m glad we decided to go with a planner because a number of things can/do pop up on the day of that Jim was able to take care of. It was a blessing to have someone like Jim there to help out. I can’t say enough great things about the Peter James Events team! ~Valerie & Casey

Peter from Peter James Events was absolutely amazing! He was so accommodating to my needs. I had a very specific vision as far as colors and flowers and he was on point the whole time. He would challenge my ideas if he did not think it would look visually pleasing with the rest of the design for the wedding. I wanted peonies, however peonies were not available that time of year, but he found a very similar looking flower that would give me the look I was going for! Everything turned out absolutely amazing! I could not recommend Peter James Events higher! ~Rose

Ladies and Gentlemen. I produce international destination events all over the world. For my 32nd birthday party, i wanted an electrifying shock. I decided to go all out on the flowers. Peter and his team took my vision and explicitly translated my wishes into the most incredibly stunning floral displays that would rival any top global designer. Do NOT tell Peter what to do, he already has it done. Last minute direction change, not even a drop of sweat. In fact, peter originally suggested that “Last minute direction change” from the beginning. So, listen to Peter 😉 ~Dane Steele

When I got engaged last fall I knew that I would be going to Peter James for my flowers. I have known Peter for a while and have seen his creations through the years. I trusted him fully in his decisions because his creative eye is on point! He thought of and took care of things that I didn’t even think of. This made my planning easier and I am forever thankful for that. Trust his judgement because he knows what he is doing and he does it well. I had the most beautiful flowers on the day of my wedding. People are still talking about the heart shaped roses that were in my bouquet! Thank you for making my day less stressful and beautiful at the same time ~Jillian & Chris

Peter James is simply the best florist to hire for your wedding period end of story – don’t look any further. If we could give more stars we would. When we first met Peter we walked away with so much confidence that we could put our trust in him to be the florist for our wedding. Peter gave us exotic centerpieces, a breathtaking Chupah, gorgeous flowers for the bridal party, and a romantic sweetheart table. The arrangements were all very unique and made the entire room warm and come alive. Peter uses a lot of creativity to make everything look amazing and exceed your expectations. His work is high quality is worth every penny and we recommend him very highly! ~ Natalie & Bryan

Peter and his team did a FANTASTIC job with our wedding this past weekend! They captured my vision of Alice in Wonderland perfectly and even snuck in a little something for my husband! Peter is wonderful to work with; his creativity and attention to detail is incredible! Words can’t express how grateful we are!! ~Kait & Pat

When I booked my appointment with Peter, I was not looking forward to meeting about flowers – i just wasn’t very excited about it. Well, Peter absolutely BLEW me away!!!! He is such a professional!!! Great personality, very knowledgeable, and and just a pleasure to work with!! I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, but he helped guide me! I wanted orchids, and i thought that would be too expensive, but he was able to tell us which orchids would be in our price range, and we were blown away! They were STUNNING!!! I was THRILLED with my bridal bouquet, all the bridesmaids bouquets, and all the boutonnieres and corsages! He knew what flowers we needed and what we didn’t and he came in UNDER budget! He was so attentive and very easy to work with!!!! His attention to detail is impeccable!!! he truly helped guide us when we weren’t sure how or where to begin, and we felt confident with his work! I highly recommend him!! ~Rachel & Kevin

Peter James did the flowers for my wedding on October 10 at the Berkeley, and he was fantastic. I went in to my initial meeting with Peter not really knowing what I was looking for or what I wanted. We talked about what my dress looked liked and the colors for my bridesmaid dresses, and I let him really run with his ideas. He did not disappoint. Peter’s flowers and arrangements are so unique and absolutely beautiful. Many brides typically have an idea of what they want, but trusting Peter’s advice and insight is definitely worth it. I could not have imagined something more perfect than what he was able to put together. My bouquet was incredible and the center pieces were gorgeous. I loved everything and cannot thank Peter enough. I would definitely recommend working with Peter for any event! ~Mallory & Michael

I found PeterJames Floral through a friend of a friend. After our first initial phone call I already trusted him and knew we would choose his company. After telling other vendors and people from the area we were using Peter, I did not stop hearing positive reviews. Peter is so fun/easy to work with; we had great conversations/laughs at each of our meetings. He has a great personality and makes the process seamless. He expanded on our vision and helped us stay within our budget. He is super professional and detailed oriented. Peter was super responsive and attentive to all my questions. He has such a creative vision and thinks outside the box – it is nice to see how much he truly cares and loves what he does. I would 100% recommend him to ANYONE getting married. He is amazing! Our flowers were perfect!!! ~Theresa & Mike

Peter is a true visionary. My fiance and I showed up to our first meeting with a few thoughts of color palettes and nothing else. Thankfully, Peter took our small ideas and grew them into a grand vision beyond any expectation. He managed to tie our vintage-antique theme into our flowers and centerpieces. While we were obviously very happy with his creations, the feedback from all of our guests was phenomenal. Between the antique trays and vases of flowers the ballroom looked stunning and did not go unnoticed by anyone. The flower combinations were truly breathtaking. The guests were ecstatic to be able to take the centerpieces home, while we were also ecstatic to be able to use all of the vases of flowers for our brunch the following morning! Overall Peter was extremely easy to work with. He was patient and always responsive to any questions or concerns we had. We had total confidence in his ideas and thoughts, and would recommend him to anyone looking for extraordinary abilities to design, create and implement beautiful ideas for flowers and centerpieces. We hope to use him for future special occasions! ~Maureen & Gary
