About Us

Carol Godshall

Carol’s creative touch was nurtured by her Mother’s many handmade quilts and sewing projects. She spent her summers helping in their large flower and vegetable garden, picking strawberries and blackberries, exploring the stream and woodlands around their farm. That knowledge and experience was great preparation for her present work as a wedding and event florist.
After a career in the classroom, she discovered her love of flower arranging and has been pursuing it ever since.
She spent 15 years working for a local florist where she spent time working in the greenhouse as well as design and management. Along the way she attended numerous floral business and design classes which enabled her to launch out on her own, opening English Garden Floral in her home in 2000.
Carol continues to be inspired by all types of home, garden and wedding magazines as well as many wonderful blogs of other floral artists. Above all, she is thankful to God the Creator of all things, for the opportunity to bless others with her creative gift.

“Carol at English Garden Floral was AMAZING. We were so thrilled with her creativity and attention to detail. She gave us everything we asked for and then some. We choose Carol for her professional, yet down to earth personality. She meets with you in her home. You describe what you like, she creates a visual for you to feel more comfortable about what you’ll be seeing on your tables and in your bouquets. We couldn’t have asked for a more organized and creative person. She was very willing to work with our budget. Again, we couldn’t be more happy with Carol’s work. She created exactly what we were looking for in our wedding theme.
Thanks Carol!”

“Carol was WONDERFUL. Her attention to detail was perfect. She captured everything I explained to her exactly the way I wanted it. She was so personable and really made us feel like we were a part of her family. Her prices were extremely reasonable and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a florist for their wedding or any special occasion.”

“Carol was amazing. I’ll never forget how much on the day of our wedding I was in awe of the beautiful and unique arrangements. It was great to be able to share an idea with her and then she put her special touch on the idea and made it that much more beautiful.”
