Customer Testimonials


I found Russ online when searching for wedding flowers and loved his style. I recommended him to my sister-in-law for their wedding in Oak Park. The price was great and the service was amazing. The flowers turned out great, were delivered on time and looked amazing at the ceremony and the reception. Would recommend Russ to anyone!

I would highly recommend Russ! My daughter’s wedding was themed in country chic. Russ and team did a fantastic job with the creation of all the flower arrangements to fit perfectly into the wedding theme – and all with just a couple of photos we provided at the consultation. He is also very reasonably priced! As a corporate meeting and events manager myself, I would not hesitate to refer Russ to friends and colleagues.

Everything was FANTASTIC!  Couldn’t have been more happy…the church looked fantastic and the venue breathtaking! Your team did an amazing job with creation and set-up. Thank you SO MUCH!

We were so pleased with the flowers and price point. Russ did exactly what we wanted with just a few pictures as examples. He was very helpful with suggestions and responded quickly to emails and calls. We would definitely use Russ Flowers again!!!

Hi Russ, I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful flowers! They were absolutely beautiful! I had so many people come up to me and say they were stunning and who did them. My cousin is getting married next August, and your information was passed on to her. Thank you again so so much for the most perfect flowers!!! The day was wonderful :)

They were gorgeous!  First of all you did magic with that arch.  When I found out I couldn’t use my own I was bummed because what they had wasn’t the greatest on its own.  However, when I saw it up close with your flowers I was amazed.  It was completely transformed.  Crazy what some flowers can do.

The centerpieces were awesome.  Made the room even more beautiful along with the flower petals that I couldn’t use for the runner.  My bouquet was stunning and I loved everything about it, along with all of the other bridal party flowers.  You did a fantastic job with everything.  I am very pleased and will make sure to recommend you to anybody who needs flowers! Thank you so much for everything!  I will add some pictures my photographer took so you can see how good they looked.

Russ did my wedding flowers and I could not have been happier. I picked the “autumn sunrise” bridal package and the flowers were gorgeous and exactly as pictured. We received so many compliments. In fact, our reception venue, a restaurant, asked if they could keep the flower arrangements or buy them from us to have in their restaurant for the next few days.

The value for flowers here is unbelievable. I have friends who have spent literally tens of thousands of dollars on wedding flowers and didn’t look any better than ours. Our entire bridal package (bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, boutenirs, coursages, and flower petals for the ceremony) cost the same amount as just a single bridal bouquet at many florists I researched. Costco can’t even compete. I don’t know how Russ does it because there is no compromise on quality for the price.

Finally, we had a morning wedding ceremony so were a little nervous about a florist who could get there on time. Russ delivered the flowers to our venue at 6:30 a.m. Russ also handled very well the logistics of our order, as we had several last-minute add-ons and changes.

Brides, this is the place to go, and not even if you’re on a budget!

I just wanted to say thank you for doing such a great job on my wedding flowers this weekend! I received so many compliments on the bouquets especially – they were perfect! I was really impressed by the quality of the flowers, the beauty of the arrangements, the prompt (early) delivery, and the value! I am passing on your contact information to my sister for her wedding in May. She’s not quite to that planning stage yet but you’ll probably hear from here in the next couple of months.

You will not be disappointed!

You will not be disappointed with your flowers from Russ. For my wedding on September 12, I had placed orders for the church altar flowers, bride/bridesmaids bouquets and the groom/groomsmen boutonnieres. I had also placed an order for wholesale flowers just because I needed to make additional corsages, boutonnieres and floral decorations as well. The ease of working with Russ was great! I needed multiple drop offs and he was able to fulfill each one. He was flexible and really listened to what I wanted. The flowers were beyond beautiful and people kept praising how beautiful they were. I am beyond happy with my flowers and will definitely refer him to anyone that has an upcoming wedding.

I know nothing about about flowers but after talking with Russ he was able to figure out the perfect flowers for our wedding style “classic elegance”. I ordered centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, and flower petals for the flower girls and they were all BEAUTIFUL! With a million things to do to plan a wedding this was one thing I didn’t need to worry about. No hassle, VERY affordable(about 1/2 the price I was quoted from another florist) and absolutely beautiful results. I would highly recommend Wedding Flowers by Russ Phillip to anyone looking for a wonderful florist. Thanks again, Russ for making my wedding beautiful!

You went well beyond my expectations. My family and I were in complete awe of how beautiful the flowers were. From the whole flowers to the bouquets and to the church pieces, I’m completely speechless. It took the wedding to a different level. Thank you sooooooo much!!!!!

Lisa, Sept 2015


I ordered centerpieces, bouquets, and corsages/boutonnieres and they all came out beautifully! I did not have a specific arrangement of flowers in mind. I provided picture examples of what I liked, my colors, and a few core flowers I wanted to be included and they did the rest. Very happy with the flowers and the price paid. Delivery of the flowers occurred on time on my wedding day without any issues. I would recommend for any bride looking for beautiful flowers at a great price.

The Knot Bride, September 2015


SO many compliments on the flowers! Thank you so much! Exactly what I wanted, even though I did a horrible job explaining it to you, you put it all together perfectly!
