Introduction: I have done workshops in europe with master florists. I travel extensively, and use what i see in other parts of the world to create our designs. we stay current on trends, and often find we are ahead of them! each wedding is a custom design, and the added option of full event planning saves the client money and creates a very cohesive day. we also have a company called garden path expressions that creates silk replicas of fresh design and ship them to your destination site. We are a full-service floral design and event planning company. By combining those two services, we are able to keep your wedding team small and effective. All our weddings are custom designed to fit your vision and your budget. We travel all over the United States. As your florist, we design, deliver and service your wedding, do set up and handle staging of your ceremony and reception. We are known for a very natural look in our flowers, using seasonal blooms and containers that suit that look perfectly. As your planner, we assist with all phases of pre-planning, vendors, contracts, transportation, 30-day walk-throughs, site visits, timelines and vendor coordination. On your wedding day, we will be with you the entire block of time. Check us out on Facebook at The Garden Path. I love everything! each day and project presents new ideas,new people and new adventures. visit our facebook page at the garden path co. castle rock to see our current adventures! we do large events like the PGA and the solheim cup, grand prix of denver,, so our scope is large.

The Garden Path handled both our wedding flowers and wedding coordination. Karen was amazing at both! Getting married in Evergreen, we wanted a very mountain feel to all the flowers; Karen nailed it. All the flowers were absolutely beautiful! While she was decorating the venue, she was also coordinating the caterers, bartender, wedding party, etc. We did not need to worry about anything. We would highly recommend Karen and The Garden Path for any event occasion! Jay

It was a wonderful experience working with Karen at The Garden Path. She helped us create our perfect vision even though I only had a few things in mind. She also helped us incorporate a few glass boxes my fiancé made and wanted to use. I was at a loss as to how to change them from our original winter wedding to the new fall date we have due to COVID. After looking into many different florists it was refreshing to talk to Karen and actually get the help and guidance we were looking for!

Karen was the best choice I could have made when selecting a florist and wedding planner. Not being the stereotypical girl that loves weddings and has been planning mine for years, I had no idea where to start, but Karen asked all the right questions and helped to put together the wedding and ceremony I never knew I dreamed of. With this being a destination wedding, she was able to provide me with suggestions for other local vendors so I didn't have to worry about the choices I was making. She listened to my preferences and provided the perfect flowers for our wedding. She was always a available by phone or email, answering my hundreds of questions. And on the day of my wedding, I didn't have to do a thing because Karen took care of everything... she even picked up the cake for us! I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a florist and planner.

I have loved working with Karen in prep for my wedding in June! She has been flexible and so receptive to my ideas and vision for florals. She is working within our budget to deliver exactly what we hoped for, and has made it so fun to plan. Thanks, Karen!!

Karen was really great to work with for my wedding florals. I was having difficulty finding someone that understood my vision and was responsive (others left me waiting for weeks for a reply). It was such a relief to work with Karen who put so much time and attention into working with me on exactly what I wanted down to the little details. The mountain wildflower style bouquets she put together were lovely and added just the right touch of romance and color to our outdoor wedding outside of Silverthorne. Highly recommend her for your floral needs!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    we price out floral design and event services separately, we require a deposit to reserve your date, with the balance due 10 days prior to your wedding. since many weddings are 6-12 months in planning, pricing can change due to numbers. we are clear on our flower prices, and all changes are made with our clients full knowledge and approval as they happen.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    we do not charge for consultations, it is our chance to meet personally and for me to give a very ACCURATE price quote. once we give pricing, we guarantee it. once we have a deposit, agreements are documented and updated as we go. final balance is due 10 days previous to your wedding. We communicate with all vendors our planning and day of option works very well for us and our brides. Because we are so involved with your vision, and the details of your wedding, our pre planning can be as extensive as site choice, timelines, ground transportation, ceremony planning, etc.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    i travel extensively and always visit flower markets and shops--holland, germany, france, the caribbean, Nepal
