What Brides Are Saying

Carlone’s Florist takes great pride in its history of designing and delivering the most spectacular floral displays for hundreds of weddings in Portsmouth, Newport, and the surrounding RI and MA area. The following testimonials are from a few of our happiest brides.


My name is Ron Henry. Today, you delivered flowers to a friend, Kirsten. The reason I’m writing to you is, I was talking with Kirsten on the phone when you delivered the roses to her. She freaked out. All she kept telling me was how beautiful they were and the colors were just what she loved. You made me a hero with the most important person in my life. You are the only place I want to use when I order flowers for Kirsten. When you make her happy, you make me very happy and you will get a call on any order of flowers I want for Kirsten in the future. Thank you, again. You have no idea how much this means to me.
Ron Henry

Thank you so much for always creating gorgeous bouquets with the freshest of flowers. Your staff is always friendly and I can trust them to make absolutely any arrangement at any price and count on it to be beautiful. There is NO other florist I would ever go to again. You never try to hide ugly flowers with ridiculously large bows, like some other florists in town. Plain and simple, your family owned business is one I can forever count on. You guys would never sell me anything you wouldn’t give to your own mom. Thank you for beautiful flowers-especially for adding the orchids. My trips to CT to visit are never complete without a stop at Carlone’s before heading down. Thanks for the flowers with friendly service. Always!
Bethany

Words cannot express what a beautiful job that you did with all the flowers. They were positively stunning. I will never order flowers from another florist. A job well done.
The Guadagni Family

Thank you so much for the incredible bouquets you created for the funeral. You were wonderful listening to me and my sister explain the flowers and arrangements we wished for. You and your florist created the perfect garden bouquet we had hoped for to remind us of the flowers my grandfather grew in his garden. The extra help in dealing directly with the church and your special attention to us made one aspect easy, during a very difficult time. It is very appreciated by me and my whole family.
Susan Zmich

Thank you so much for the pretty cyclamen you sent. It was very sweet of you. We want to tell you what a nice job you did with the flowers for the whole funeral home. We were so happy with all of the arrangements you made. Thanks with much appreciation.

What a wonderful surprise when you arrived with 90 beautiful carnations! I just love it and will keep it to the last petal and I send my heartfelt thanks. Your generosity is overwhelming and I truly do appreciate it. I wish you wonderful success.

Thanks for the beautiful arrangement of flowers you sent me. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. As always, Carlone’s florist is number 1 in floral arrangements! I received several arrangements from my friends that were made at Carlone’s and they were ALL beautiful.

Thank you for your participation in the Newport Art Museum’s Griswold Gala Weekend. Your floral design, so thoughtfully created, truly reflected the beauty of our permanent collection here at the Museum. Guests and judges alike were most impressed with the high quality of each piece and with the creativity expressed by every floral participant. We are most grateful to you for sharing your talents with all in attendance and we especially wish to congratulate you on your Honorable Mention! Again, we thank you for joining is in celebrating art, culture and community.

I would like to express our gratitude for your contribution to our auction. I applaud your kindness and concern for youth. Your donation is really appreciated. Your help makes such a great difference, to young people and to those who faithfully work with them. Please know that your generosity means a great deal. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
Louise Dussault, Director

Thank you for the lovely centerpiece. It finished off our dinner table very nicely. Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.
Natalie & Lewis Silvia

We wanted to thank you for your wonderful help this past Friday. We were in a pinch and what you did went very well. The event was a success even without the real Bamboo and we thank you for that. The students had fun and some even thought it was real Bamboo. The horse tail was a great product. We donated the rest to a student teacher’s classroom, they were happy too. Thanks again and we look forward to doing more business with you as always. David, the director of the program, said to tell you thanks for saving him also.
Lori, Roger Williams University

Thank you for the flowers you sent. Thank you, too, for the arrangements you prepared. Our family is truly appreciative of your kindness.
The Combra Family

My entire family is very grateful to you for the beautiful flowers you provided for my mom’s funeral. Pink roses were always her favorite and the ones you arranged were the prettiest we had ever seen. Thank you for helping us through a very difficult time.
Cynthia Brown

Thank you for the beautiful flower arrangement you sent for my mother’s services. That was so nice of you! I had to bring your arrangement home for our personal enjoyment-it so reminded me of something my mom would have put together from her own gardens. My mom had actually grown calla lilies in her garden this summer-pink ones, no less. So, the arrangement was perfect. I know you put together most of the other arrangements sent by our friends & family members. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job with them. If only mom could have seen them-she would have loved them! Thank you for thinking of us.
All the Mellows

Thank you for allowing our interior design class to come and learn about the floral business. We enjoyed seeing the process behind flower arrangements. We have just finished arranging our own vases, we appreciate you allowing us to pick out the flowers we liked from your shop. Thank you again.

On behalf of the Board and members of the Museum of Newport Irish History, please accept my thanks for your recent donation to support the 2nd annual “Irish Eyes are Smiling” benefit for the Museum’s new Interpretive Site. Your donation to the evening’s popular silent auction helped ensure the financial success of this important fundraising event. Proceeds from “Irish Eyes” have allowed us to make great progress on the installation of Interpretive Site exhibits, which include photographs, maps, and other artifacts which tell the story of Irish immigration to Newport County, consistent with Museum’s Mission. Thank you again for your generous support of the Museum of Newport Irish History!

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of People’s Credit Union, congratulations on being recognized with an Excellence in Business Award from the Newport County Chamber of Commerce. To be recognized in the category of Entrepreneur must be really exciting to you. I hadn’t realized that you had been at the same location for 51 years. Your Middletown store is really convenient with it’s drive up service. Congratulations again!
Ellen Ford, President & CEO of People’s Credit Union

It has been a pleasure ordering flowers from you for the last 10 years. I will never forget the help you gave me in arranging flowers for each of my staff members for my first day of school way back when.
Christina Martin

Why was I not surprised that one of my get-well gifts came from my friends at Carlone’s? Because you have all been, over the years, so kind to me. I always enjoyed my visits to see you. You have been so good to me for so many years. I very much appreciate your support. With your love, prayers and support, I’ll beat my illness, which I consider a “bump in the road”. God bless you and thanks very much.
Mr. Fitz

Thank you very much for the beautiful arrangement and your good wishes. It was much appreciated at this busy but exciting time for us.

Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. The flowers were amazing and our wedding would not have been nearly as beautiful without them! We hope you were able to see a few online.

I want to thank you for the beautiful centerpieces. Everyone commented how beautiful the arrangements were. I placed several in the church and when I went to mass a week later, they looked just as lovely as last week! Thanks for your help and express my gratitude to all of your staff.
Roni Probert

My family and I would like to thank you and your staff for the beautiful flowers you provided for my daughter, Sara’s, wedding. Your common sense, advice and thoughtful suggestions during our planning meetings helped us choose flowers that complemented the wedding color scheme and our pocketbook. The bouquets, boutonnieres, altar arrangement and pew bows lit up the sanctuary. I was especially pleased with the reception table decorations. I was gratified by your ability to tie all the various table decoration components together and make it look effortless. The table centerpieces and wedding cake were beautiful and I received many complements about them. Thank you all for providing our family with a beautiful memory of one of the happiest days of our lives.
David & Joanna

Thank you for the beautiful flowers for Ryan & Katherine’s wedding. They could not have been more perfect! They showcased the chapel, grand ballroom, and now our home. We couldn’t be more delighted. It was a pleasure working with you and a very generous gift from Brian and the Carlone Family.
Debbie Swistak

Thank you so much for the most amazing wedding flowers. All of the bouquets were gorgeous and absolutely perfect. The floral arrangements, centerpieces, Sheppard hooks were also beautiful! Everything was so colorful and perfect as we planned and the palms helped to make the ceremony unforgettable. We can’t thank you enough for the amazing work you did for our wedding! We highly recommend Carlone’s to everyone we talk to. You did an amazing job!

Thank you for making the trip all the way to Sunday River for our wedding. The flowers were so beautiful. We are getting so many compliments on all of our pictures. You did such an amzing job and we really appreciate all of your hard work. We are so glad you were able to spend a couple of days up there with the family. Also, thank you for the champagne, it didn’t last long!

Thank you all so very much for all of the beautiful flowers at our wedding. They were stunning and most definitely exceeded our expectations. You made the planning process a breeze and we are extremely grateful.
Kara & Kyle Martin

We just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing flowers and arrangements you provided for our wedding. The flowers were the best surprise out of all of our vendors-we could not have imagined more perfect flowers, arrangements, palms, etc. to complement the theme of our wedding day! We cannot thank you enough for all you did leading up to our big day-from the site visits at our house to see where we were going to have the ceremony and reception, to taking the time out to talk to us during all of our unannounced trips to store, etc. We always felt like you genuinely cared about making our wedding day truly special by working with us to come up with the perfect floral scheme for our wedding. In every picture from our wedding the flowers POPPED with color and were absolutely beautiful. They were definitely the talk of our wedding. We just wanted to say thank you again for all of your hard work and commitment-you were a pleasure to work with, along with everyone else at Carlone’s that helped in preparing our amazing flowers! It would have not been the same with any other florist. We will definitely recommend you to all of our friends and family!
