If you live in the NY/NJ area, please check out Carolina Too Florist on Lenox Avenue in Harlem. They are the oldest African American owned florist in the Northeast and they do beautiful flowers!
I was fortunate enough to meet the owner, Phil Young; his grandparents opened the store in 1933!! He is incredibly sweet and knowledgable and takes pride in his work. They are affordable and will try to work with your budget. They are just all-around nice people there.
Just a little PSA for those in the area. I always see that other ethnic groups have florists, catering/banquet halls, limousine services, bakeries and other vendors that they patronize because the vendor caters to or is part of their culture and I wanted to remind other brides that it is nice to patronize our brothers and sisters when we can and spend money in our own community.
