We selected Josh as our wedding planner and florist for my daughter's October 2014 wedding months in advance and worked with him throughout the planning process. He was an invaluable asset in creating the wedding experience about which our young couple dreamed. His thoughtfulness and attention to all of the details that matter for a special family occasion were phenomenal, from remembering family and friends who could not attend with gorgeous specially delivery flowers to obtaining a sketch of our daughter in her wedding dress as a surprise. The flowers for the ceremony and reception were nothing short of breathtaking in freshness, color and design. The day unfolded smoothly and we were allowed to enjoy complete joy and relaxation as Josh handled all of the vendors and the little glitches that always present themselves seamlessly and cheerfully. He is masterful and also extremely kind and personable, with a genuine love of his work. The best!

I called Josh in a panic when my daughter moved her wedding date up by 8 months, leaving us 2 weeks to pull everything together. He already had a full schedule but made time to pull together nothing short of a miracle. We were only going to request a bridal bouquet and single flowers for the bridesmaids but Josh was able to work his magic using my daughters favorite flowers in so many wonderful ways. Our family and friends could not stop talking about the beautiful creations on the tables, cake and in the service itself. Despite the ridiculous timeline and our limited budget, Josh used his amazing talents to make our special day the most beautiful experience ever! He is a truly gifted artist that we cannot recommend highly enough!!

From the first interview we had with Josh Borden, we knew he was going to do a fabulous job. After showing him a few pictures, Josh knew the look we wanted for the floral arrangements. We sat at a table and he began to create bouquets and floral arrangements on paper that were so wonderful and even better than we had dreamed. After we talked about the specific designs we want to use, he then told us about flowers that would translate into the most elegant decorations for every setting. I think that is his unique talent—he is able to create what you want with every flower and arrangement rather than just his particular taste. He really seems to treat each bride with such enthusiasm and desire to make her day the most special event. The “icing on the cake” for us is that he knew how to keep the budget in line and make it spectacular, but affordable. I have recommended him to all of my friends getting married!!!

My wedding was held at Sacred Heart Basilica in downtown Atlanta, which a reception following in the Grand Ballroom at the Georgian Terrace Hotel. A colleague of mine recommended Josh to me and I am so very grateful. I was new to Atlanta and had met with many prospective florists and was extremely disappointed with their lack of ingenuity, creativity. I had a very set idea of what I wanted with my flowers and Josh understood what my vision was immediately. I knew very quickly that he was the florist for my wedding. I could tell from our frist conversation that I would be able to trust him implicitly with our flowers, both in the church and for the reception. He did fantastic work! He worked with me on some last minute additions, including a STUNNING wish tree on which I have received tons of compliments. I enjoyed Josh's candor and his extremely fair pricing. I can recommend him very highly.

He not only provided beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets for the ceremony and reception, but he also helped in many areas other than just my flowers. He is extremely creative and professional. I highly recommend Borden Design Group!

Josh's professionalism, attention to detail, patience, and sense of humor made him a pleasure to work with. His fabulous sense of design - from the layout of the room, to the table arrangements, to -of course- the flowers - resulted in the most beautiful ceremony and reception space I could have never imagined on my own. Our reception was in the church's parish hall, and I've heard many, many people say they've seen many a wedding and party in that room, but never one as gorgeous as the one Josh put on for us! I cannot thank him or speak highly enough of him. Call him now before someone else books him for your day!

His designs were original, beautiful, and perfect for our venue. I felt like he incorporated all of the elements that we wanted and he really took my vision to the next level! I feel like he was fair priced, and willing to work within my budget. His proposal was strait forward and easy to understand. He was also great at getting back to me if I had any questions, and brides have a lot of questions!!!! I ABSOLUTLY would recommend him to anyone needing floral design for a wedding or any other event!!!! (I already have!!)

Borden Design Group did an AMAZING job with my wedding and reception, not only were the flowers stunning, they managed to pull off a fairytale wedding in the midst of an ice storm! There was no power in the church, so thinking on his feet, Josh used juice glasses from the church kitchen with votive candles and gained access to church-owned candelabras...none of which were part of the original plan. (Ordinarily, the church doesn't allow candles, but made an exception, since there was no power.) It was truly incredible...absolutely gorgeous! I highly recommend Borden Design Group for exquisite flowers, ingenuity under pressure and amazing calm that set me at ease, too!

Josh Borden is a brilliant floral designer and an amazing person to work with. His floral design was a highlight at my wedding. The entire process from initial consultation, choosing flowers to the big day was an absolute joy. He designed the perfect fragrant bouquet- it was perfect! My sister also commissioned Josh for her wedding and it was spectacular as well. I would highly recommend this talented and delightful designer. He is an asset and an ally!

Very good ideas. Flowers extremely fresh and lasted a long time. Well organized. Showed the bride all of the flowers at the wholesaler so she could see them in person and not just in pictures. He arrived on time with enough people to get everything set up quickly. Beautiful!

Beautiful flowers! Josh is amazing to work with! Even if you don't know what you are looking for, he will help you to create something perfect for your wedding. He takes you to the flower market so that you can see first hand what all of the flowers look like together to ensure you get exactly what you want. He was just fantastic to work with, the flowers were beautiful and fresh and on time. I would highly suggest anyone who wants a great experience and beautiful flowers to work with Borden Design Group!

Josh was wonderful. His attention to detail and listening to what I wanted were beyond my expectations. He met me at my reception site and also at the church to discuss details. He even took me to a wholesale florist to get my likes and dislikes. My mother is deceased and he took buttons from her dress and incorporated them in my bouquet so I would have a special reminder of her on my wedding day and beyond. Many of my guests commented on how beautiful the flowers were. I would recommend him to everyone!

Josh Borden did an incredible job with our floral design for the bridal party, the cake as well as the reception site. We orginally went to him for floral design only, but he really helped us with planning and coordination as well. I was very please with the floral arrangements that he created for our wedding. I really did not have specifics for him to go off of, but only an idea of what I wanted. He took the time to get to know me and I could not have created something better had I tried. I highly recommend him.

The flowers for our wedding were exquisite. The flowers and design made the ceremony and reception sites magical and unforgettable. My bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids’ bouquets were amazing.... I can't say enough about how wonderful everything was. Josh Borden listened to what we wanted, discussed various ideas and created a masterpiece. My groom, who does not usually care about flowers, could not stop talking about them. Josh is innovative and creative. He took care of everything for us so that we had an amazingly stress-free day. He has elegant, romantic, and sophisticated taste and he made our day incredibly beautiful. The brides he works with are lucky women. I can't say enough good things about him.

There are many florists out there who can put a bouquet together; however finding a florist that can captivate every guest that walks through the door is a true talent. Josh Borden of Borden Design Group was absolutely spectacular. He created more than just some bouquets and centerpieces; he created an ambiance that was more than I could have ever imagined. He was sensitive to our cost range and offered different ways to create the same effect at a slightly lower cost, if we needed to cut in certain areas. Furthermore, as some brides and mothers don't always see eye to eye on the details of the wedding, Josh sat down with both of us and helped us to come together on our floral decisions. You will not find a cookie-cutter wedding with Borden Design Group; his attention to detail and color coordination was extraordinary. My friends and family are still raving on how beautiful our flowers were at the wedding. I would highly recommend Borden Design Group for all of your Floral needs.

Josh Borden is amazing! Josh helped me with two large weddings in 2005...my son's wedding on May 7th (Christ the King in Atlanta followed by the reception at The Ansley Golf Club) and my daughter's on July 2nd (Immaculate Heart of Mary in Atlanta followed by the reception at The Atlanta Botanical Gardens) His help, guidance, knowledge and connections for our every need concerning all aspects of the weddings made these two experiences calm, enjoyable and exquisitely beautiful! Josh's expertize, his quiet mannered approach to any and every problem made my life so much easier and sane during a most stressful time. No situation seemed too big , too scary, or too unfamiliar to him and he welcomed every challenge with a smile and a seemingly easy solution! Josh was able to steer us in every area pertaining to wedding planning from the beginning to the end. He was gracious and supportive and always followed through on any request we had. He helped make these weddings the most memorable and special days for our families. Not only are we deeply grateful to Josh for his help, his kind heart and wonderful, fun personality, but we are delighted to call him a forever friend.

Josh Borden is absolutely a godsend. He is the most talented person I have ever met. His ideas are magical and unique. He made me feel like I was his only client. He was willing to go above and beyond the call of duty by his willingness to meet with me wherever and whenever. I can't imagine having planned this wedding without him, or his company. Not only did Josh work with me as a wedding cooridinator, he was also my florist. I still receive comments on his arrangements. Words cannot describe the detail he put into each arrangement. When I met with Josh, he asked me what I pictured my wedding to be like. I told that candles were a must. We must have lit up Atlanta that night. The tables and atmosphere were breath-taking. Organized, reliable, responsible, creative, reasonable, detailed, and a barrel of fun...what else could you ask for?

Josh Borden from Borden Design Group not only made my wedding like a fairy tale, he also made me relax and enjoy my special day. Josh is talented, reliable, and listened to my wedding plans while adding his own special touches for a fabulous, dramatic decor. I had the pleasure of meeting his team. They were so sweet as they tried to calm my nerves before the wedding and were nothing but kind and sincere. He matched what I wanted for my wedding decorations exactly. I had the vision and he added to it--and ulitmately set it all up for me. The flowers and the fabrics he used were nothing short of amazing. For all these reasons and more, I strongly recommend Josh and his team.

Josh exceeded all of our expectations as a florist, designer and coordinator. He is creative, hard-working and very detail-oriented. On top of all that, his prices are reasonable, too! I loved my flowers (they fit the room to a tee), and my husband and I received SO many compliments on them. As if that wasn't enough, Josh is also a very generous and compassionate person. He offered words of encouragement when I was upset and, as our coordinator, knew how to fix problems when they arose. (The bustle on my dress broke during the reception, and he sewed me a new one!) I can't thank Josh enough for all of his help and only hope that this review will encourage another bride to consider using him for her wedding flowers.

Josh Borden and his entire design group went above and beyond my expectations to make my wedding flowers better than I ever could have imagined. I had VERY specific ideas about how I wanted everything to look and Josh was able to clearly interpret my vision and deliver exactly what I wanted, only better! He is professional, reliable, and exteremely creative (Not to mention reasonably priced and not pushy). If you are a creative or particular bride, or even looking for help in tying your entire event together, you will not be disappointed with the Borden Design Group. They have my highest recommendation.

Josh made our wedding day a breeze! He was our florist and coordinator and was such a delight to work with. Josh was organized, had great ideas, very creative and worked well with all our vendors. He set up meetings with the photographer, ceremony musicians, band, and caterer so that we could all understand how the big day was going to flow. The flowers were exquisite and exactly what I had hoped for. I would recommend Borden Design Group to anyone who is looking for a reliable, fun, and creative florist!

Josh Borden did an excellent job with our wedding!! I highly recommend him for both florist and day of wedding coordination. His flowers looked incredible, I was so impressed, he did exactly what I asked for!! He was our day of coordinator as well, and he kept everything running so smoothly. Everyone from my parents, bridesmaids, and groom (who normally doesn't comment on these types of things) was very impressed with everything Josh did for us!! Josh was very willing to work with our budget as well. Our guests couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful everything came out, and how great our flowers looked. We couldn't have picked a better vendor!!

Josh Borden, of Borden Design Group, was my florist and coordinator for my February 28, 2004 wedding here in Atlanta. He was very fun to work with, had great ideas and most importantly, accommodated all of my ideas that I' had been dreaming of since I was young. I recommend BDG without any hesitation.
