Questions and Answers

What 3 words best describe your work?

Fresh, unique and creative.

Tell us about your company name.

Nearly 100 years ago, before most people owned a car, Samuel Leigh opened a quaint little flower shop. He held bridal consultations in the parlor of the house next door to the flower shop. Several additions were made to the building over the years, including a greenhouse, where Samuel grew trees, shrubs, and flowers on the land that is now the Haddon Leigh section of town (named after Samuel himself). Fast forward to 2004, when Denise Leigh Herker purchased the shop. The moment Denise set eyes on the shop, she knew it was meant to be—especially since her middle name was coincidentally already on the sign!

Why should someone hire you?

We are a professional group of down-to-earth florists who are looking to make your wedding planning fun and easy!

What are the common misconceptions about your services?

We often find that clients don’t always consider delivery, setup and tax when budgeting for their flowers. This typically ranges from 15% to 20% of their overall wedding flower services.

What are some sources of inspiration or influences on your work?

Most of our inspiration comes from nature, but also color trends, home design and fashion influence our designs.

What makes a wedding memorable for you?

When the bride and groom really try to bring out their personalities in the event décor. This really makes all the difference when it comes to personalizing the wedding and making it a day to remember.

What is the best advice you give a couple when planning their wedding?

Don’t be afraid to go bold and express yourself!

What's your favorite quote?

"Wish it, dream it, do it!"

Extracurricular activities:

Denise loves: gardening, hiking and skiing. Mallory loves: roller skating, jewelry making and kayaking. Lisa loves: baking, home decorating and spending time with her puppy, Luca.

If you weren't in your current profession, what would you do instead?

Denise: "I would be an island snorkel shack owner!" Mallory: "I would have my own food truck selling cupcakes!"

What's your favorite way to wind down after a hard day?

Denise: "I make a cup of tea and put my feet up on the couch." Mallory: "I go home and give my puppy some hugs and kisses and tell him about my day."

Tell us about your pets, if you have any.

Denise has a 90lb black Pit Bull-Lab mix named Miles. He is such a sweetie! He loves roaming around the yard, playing in the snow during the winter and getting together with his puppy friends! Mallory has a 70lb brindle American Staffordshire Terrier named Henny and a 45lb white pit bull named Tessa. They are the best snuggle buddies! Lisa has a 30lb caramel color terrier named Luca. He loves playing with his ball and eating chicken and green beans for dinner!
