What Others Are Saying
"Mike, from Brookhill was a treat to work with! He was very easy going and had so many great ideas. I had my bouquets delivered to the church. When I walked in and got to see them for the first time, I was overwhelmed by how gorgeous they were. You talk about how they will look, but actually seeing them was incredible. They were just perfect. Exactly what we talked about. My centerpieces for my reception were even better. Mike is a preferred vendor for Ft. Belvoir, which really helped us out having the reception on the base. He has no problem getting onto the base-which is a huge plus! He is familiar with the different rooms in the Officer's Club and knew exactly what my venue looked like so he could make suggestions for the space. Just absolutely perfect. Thank you so much Brookhill!"

"BrookHill florist was beyond amazing to work with! I hired them for my February 2015 wedding and every aspect of planning with them was so smooth and simple. Mike Lucas (owner/floral expert/my savior) was able to make my very vague vision come to life perfectly! I told him I wanted simple flowers for all bouquets (no bling) and basically white flowers and candles for the center pieces at the reception... and he did exactly that! He designed the most perfect centerpieces that set the whole ambiance for the reception. He even added gold touches in the vases and on the tables as a way to add an additional pop, without being too sparkly, which I loved. Mike is so easy to work with. a true expert at what he does, and has amazing ideas for all sorts of flowers and arrangements. I have already told all of my engaged (and actually my single friends as well) to hire him for any floral needs they may have! Look no further - hire Mike and BrookHill!"

“I don't know where to begin and rave about! Brookhill florist did an amazing job creating the flowers I imagined and they also had the best price compared to other florists I met with.
After meeting with Mike and the Brookhill florist team I felt 110% certain I wanted them to do our flowers. They really vested their time to meet with my parents and I to understand the "look" of the wedding we hoped for (They never rushed or pushed like other places I felt. Our first meeting was 2 hours long!!). I'm not a flower person at all so I don't any of the flower types or the different seasonal flowers-all I knew was that I wanted a cascade bouquet and my bridesmaids a small nosegay, since we are all petite. He was extremely detailed talking about each flower and made many recommendations to go with our wedding colors that I may never have thought of! Like, adding some light blue to my ivory bouquet to transition nicely with the bridesmaids navy/light blue/green/ivory bouquets. Everything looked beautiful and smelled wonderful. Compliments were given all night long and everyone wanted to take the flowers home after the wedding! For the reception flowers he did a great job helping us vision and then create the centerpieces and escort card table flowers. It was beyond what I ever imagined! We weren't quiet sure what we wanted for those but he was completed vested in working with us and giving us his expertise. What I loved about working with Brookhill is that I could tell they loved their clients and just loved creating the flowers for their events!”

“I used Mike of BrookHill Florist for my 9/20/14 wedding. He came recommended from my venue. I met with a few different florists and I went with Mike based off of our initial consultation. He really took the time to sit down with my mom and I and talk about the whole day; our vision, or likes/dislikes, colors, etc. We talked about types of flowers for both the bridal party and the table settings. I adore flowers but was very cost-conscious and he was very willing to work within my budget and offered up some extra ideas on ways to save cost with decor, in-season flowers, etc. I left the meeting with a well laid-out proposal and no pressure to sign a contract.
I felt that the value of his service, coupled with the flowers he proposed, was extremely reasonable for the Fairfax/DC area. I even went back several weeks later and asked for ways to cut down the budget even more and we were able to cut out a few things/flowers to make it work. I was worried the flowers would be too minimalist but they were absolutely breathtaking. My bridal bouquet was so gorgeous I wanted to hold it the whole day. I went with petite bouquets for my 6 person bridal party and they were also stunning. The colors and types of flowers for the reception tables were so lovely, I got compliments for days. Everything was well executed and Mike was very good at answering all of my questions. All flowers stayed upright all day/night and I couldn't have been happier with choosing BrookHill Florists.”

"I can't say enough good things about Mike and BrookHill. I walked into my first appointment with Mike knowing exactly what I wanted and quickly realized that I didn't know much about flowers! Mike was very patient with me and my indecisiveness, and very helpful in helping me piece together ideas to bring my vision to life. It is so obvious that Mike really loves his work, and that made me further confident that he would deliver a great product. After that initial meeting, future meetings with Mike were like meeting with an old friend! He is very welcoming and greeted me with a hug and each time would ask how things were going. Something that was really awesome is that Mike added my "something old" onto my bridal bouquet. I had an old piece of lace that I didn't really have any idea what to do with, I just knew I wanted it on my bouquet somehow, and oh my gosh was it beautiful!!! He wrapped the lace under the bouquet so it almost looked like a base for the bottom of the flowers. It was just lovely. The flowers for the entire day looked EXACTLY the way I had them pictured. My flowers were my only real pop of color, so it was important to me that they were just right, and Mike really nailed it. I couldn't have painted myself a more perfect picture of every flower arrangement. From the pew posies to the table arrangements, my vision was truly brought to life, and I have Mike and BrookHill to thank for that!"

"I am 100% certain that the success of my October wedding, was entirely due to BrookHill florist. It's the God's honest truth. I find it difficult still... to put into words what this creative man, and his outstanding team did for me on my rainy wedding day. From the very 1st meeting, I knew that I had hit the jackpot of florists. He was right there with me- listening intently to my floral visions, taking into consideration my strict budgetary constraints, and ultimately taking my dream and enthusiastically turning it into something even better.
When the forecast called for torrential downpours on the days leading up to the wedding, Mike called me to let me know that my vision, "our"' vision, would not be lost. The rain forced our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, all under our reception tent - Although disheartened over the loss of the ceremony site, Mike told me not to worry - he assured me that the vision and feel we had discussed would be present, regardless of the location. Mike and his team transformed our tent, tables, and most importantly the ceremony site into... a magical dream. A dream so spectacular, that when I saw the aisle and ceremony decor for the first time, I burst into tears. It was the most beautiful, romantic display I had ever seen - It was everything I could have ever hoped for. Originally, we were to get married under my large tree, using nature as our backdrop with the addition of garlands and some florals. In the tent, Mike built a gorgeous floral and greenery backdrop, pillars on either side erupted with green fullness, he flanked the aisle floor with long garlands filled with full white roses, and tea lights all over illuminating a path and the stunning scene. Mike brought the outdoors, inside for us - and turned our vision into something i've only ever dreamed of.
BrookHill is the reason that I was able to genuinely smile on my rainy wedding day. If you need a florist, BrookHill is the answer. No question."

"Wow! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Brookhill Florist. Mike Lucas is such a joy to work with! Mike at Brookhill came highly recommended by my venue and by other brides I had the opportunity to speak with about his services and I see why. I had no idea of what types of flowers I wanted for the wedding and was a little nervous going into the meeting but Mike put me at ease immediately. He is the epitome of professionalism and assured me that he would make everything look beautiful. We had a preliminary meeting to go over the colors and theme of the wedding and he immediately went into brainstorming mode and pitched some ideas that I just fell in love with. It was a no brainer, I knew I'd met my florist. We signed the contract and that was it. Months later we set up a final planning meeting and Mike had much such fantastic recommendations initially that we stuck with the original plan of flowers and setup for centerpieces as well as bouquets. Just a minor tweak based on the bridesmaids dresses we finalized and we were done with everything. On the wedding day when I received my bouquet and saw our bridesmaids bouquets along with the other ceremony flowers we selected, I was absolutely blown away! It was just stunning. I couldn't believe that from two brief meetings, that Mike was able to create such an exquisite interpretation of our concept. When we arrived at the reception venue and I saw the centerpieces for the first time, I was equally as blown away. I knew I loved the idea when we discussed it but to see it come together was just breath taking. The compliments I received from guests about our floral arrangements and centerpieces was overwhelming. We can't say enough positive things that could express the depth of our gratitude. Mike is amazing and you can trust that he will do a beautiful job on your arrangements."

"It was such a pleasure working with Mike from Brookhill Florist. As a bride, I really appreciated that he took time to hear my needs and puts in his professional opinion on what flowers work and what doesn't. Picking flowers was the hardest I've done for the wedding but he was really patient and understanding of my needs. He also informed me costs of each flowers and gave me options that are cost effective to keep it within my budget. On our wedding day, from my bridal bouquet to reception centerpieces, the flower arrangements came out so beautifully! From the first time I sat down at his office I knew I was going to be in good hands. A lot of our guests were very impressed of all the centerpieces! I highly recommend Brookhill for your wedding flower arrangements!"

"We definitely recommend Mike at Brookhill Florists! He was so great to work with and really helped our vision come to life. I'd met with other florists who were not very enthusiastic about my ideas and didn't seem interested in finding a way to make them work. Mike really listened to our ideas and helped brainstorm. As a result everything looked beautiful and exactly how I wanted on my wedding day. Thank you so much Mike for making our day so beautiful!"

"Brookhill really is the best ever. Mike took the time to sit down with me and really get to know me and what I was looking for. I had an idea of what I wanted and Mike made it a reality. I absolutely LOVED the flowers he did for my wedding. I got SO many compliments, every single person loved them. They even lasted forever! We got to enjoy them for a long time after the wedding which was really nice. I can't say enough good things about Mike and Brookhill. He was patient and SUPER knowledgeable. Thank you for making my dreams a reality, Mike!"

"Booking BrookHill Florist as our wedding florist was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. I didn't know a lot about flowers going in to my first meeting with Mike from BrookHill, but he was extremely helpful and thorough in going through everything with me (e.g., things people use flowers for at weddings, types of flowers, colors that go well together, etc.). Mike looked at pictures of my wedding dress, my bridesmaid dresses, my husband's suit color, our table linen colors, etc. to help me decide what flowers would be best. I even got to choose the ribbon color that would be used to wrap my bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres as well as what type of beading to use on each ribbon. The prices for all of the flowers we chose were great! I left my meeting with Mike feeling confident that he would provide amazing flowers for our wedding day. I met with Mike a second time closer to our wedding to go over everything and make a few changes to our contract. He was very flexible with meeting times and I was able to make changes up until a couple weeks before our wedding. Upon arriving at our ceremony and seeing my bouquet (and other flowers) for the first time, I could not believe how beautiful the flowers were. I felt the same way when I arrived at our reception and saw the table centerpieces and flowers Mike had delivered to be placed on our wedding cake. Everything was absolutely perfect, thanks to all of Mike’s suggestions. Honestly, our wedding flowers were the prettiest flower arrangements I have ever seen. BrookHill went above and beyond all of our expectations. I would highly recommend BrookHill Florist to anyone looking for a wedding florist or a florist for any other type of event!!"

"BrookHill Florist absolutely made my wedding day! My fiance is in the military, and we had 4 months to plan our wedding, and a very small budget to work with. When I met with Mike from BrookHill, I had a vague idea of what I wanted flower wise. He took my ideas, added to them and we worked together to create a combination of what I wanted. I had an idea about what they would look like, but when I saw them in person on my wedding day, I was almost in tears about how gorgeous they were! They turned out better than anything I could have imagined. We originally thought with the budget we had, that we would order bouquets for the bridesmaids and I, boutonnieres for the groomsmen and my husband, and two corsages for our mothers. Mike was able to help us stretch our budget to make center pieces for each of our tables, as well as a larger, absolutely beautiful center piece for our sweetheart table. Our wedding colors were plum and grey, and the arrangements he made really popped against everything. I got so many compliments on the flowers, especially my bouquet! I would absolutely recommend this vendor to anyone who needed flowers for any type of event. I could not have envisioned anything more perfect for my wedding day."
