South Jersey Florist Michael Bruce Has Relocated to a Spacious New Studio in Pennsauken

For local florist Michael Bruce, his fantastic new studio space in Pennsauken is like a real-life Pinterest board: Instead of scrolling through image after image of breathtaking bouquets and centerpieces—not to mention the vessels he has that can hold them—in an effort to find inspiration for their Big Day blooms, brides who visit Bruce’s South Jersey warehouse can skim through rows of vases, vessels and tons of fresh flowers, actually getting to touch and smell it all.

The extra square footage that the new location offers is a major plus for Bruce, who recently moved his talented team from the Collingswood location they’ve been in for years. Now, after a quick chat in the charming lounge area, clients can actually walk through Bruce’s entire inventory of glassware and decor, which makes the interview process so much easier, he says, since brides can actually see what’s available and point out what they like.

“It’s a great communication technique,” he says, “because I can see what the bride relates to and then create a mock-up that incorporates the elements she gravitated towards most.”

The best part, though? Bruce’s main supplier, Pennock Floral, relocated to Pennsauken just a few years ago and is now just one building over from Bruce’s warehouse. So, if you plan far enough in advance and meet with Bruce a year before your Big Day, he can take you over to Pennock and you can see for yourself exactly which flowers are in bloom during the month of your wedding. (He can take you there any time, however, even if it’s not during your wedding month, as long as they’re open when you swing by the studio.)

The team works by appointment only; call 856-854-6322 to schedule.
