"Working with RH Wilhoite on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Whatcom County's Gala & Auction was an immensely enriching experience. He is a masterful artist, creating beauty and elegance in even the most mundane environment. He has a keen eye for detail that results in a trans formative experience for guests. He takes his craft serious and is an exemplary professional but he is just a sheer delight to know and have on a team. He becomes the go-to for everything from concept and ideas , to meticulous details, to group morale.First in , last out. I always want RH Wilhoite and Gather and Blüme on my team!"

"Unforgettable, magical journey..."
"To say our wedding was magical would be an understatement. From the picturesque backdrop for our alter, to the Gothic, winter rustic reception dinner design and not to mention the most exquisite bouquet, Roger and his team at Gather and Blüme left us speechless. When I walked down the aisle I felt I was truly stepping into a winter fairy tale and it took my breath away. Not only were the designs remarkable but Roger poured his entire heart and soul into making our day unforgettable in every way. From the first moment we met, it was like meeting a long lost friend who not only listened and took to heart all of my ideas but went above and beyond to make them a reality I never thought could be possible in my wildest imagination. To say thank you for making our dreams come true on the most special day of our lives would merely scrape the surface of our unending gratitude. If you get the opportunity to work with Roger and the Gather and Blüme team, you are in for a magical journey- one we feel so honored to have taken."

"Planning a wedding? Where to begin? When I began this exciting journey with Gather and Blume, I had the opportunity to work with a premier state of the art wedding designer. Proprietor Roger Wilhoite, is an on-site, hands on design miracle worker. He listened to all concerns, no matter how small and addressed them in a timely fashion. My daughter’s wedding was absolutely beautiful. Every detail, again, no matter how small is important to Roger and his staff. We received many, many, compliments on the beauty and originality of this special event. "

"Roger created stunning arrangements for some very special women for me. His arrangements are not cookie cutter. Prior to creating the arrangements, we sat down and discussed each person. He wanted to get a feel for what the recipient would like. Roger did not disappoint. He is passionate about his business. I will call him again and again for any floral needs."

"Shattered Our Expectations..."
“Roger and the Gather and Blume team did an incredible job creating our own amazing fairy-tale wedding! We weren’t exactly sure what we wanted but somehow Roger knew. During the months of planning and throughout our entire destination wedding weekend, Roger was always at the top of his game. The ceremony shattered our expectations and the reception blew us away! Our friends keep telling us about all of the gorgeous details that stood out. We’re thrilled to have so many beautiful scenes captured in our photos and eternally grateful for the magic that lives on in our memories"

" Folks, Mr. RH Wilhoite of Gather and Blume events floral is truly a one in a million blessing and I am honored to also now call him a friend. THIS guy not only took that phone call out of the blue (no VM, or hold times), he patiently spent time with me talking about what we wanted. One of the Warden’s main requirements was “nothing cliché or ordinary” and let me tell you neither Roger nor his “art” is either of those things! Roger was fully engaged throughout the initial and all subsequent conversations and I was beyond convinced that he was TRULY interested in and committed to making the Warden’s request into a lasting and loving memory for my mother. WHICH HE DID!! The arrangement was one of a kind and absolutely gorgeous, the timing of the delivery (which was changed a couple times due to travel challenges) was perfection and the JOY on my Momma’s face was priceless!
AND THEN, as if that wasn’t enough…
In December, I hosted a book signing/fundraiser for Children’s Hospital IN Alabama (keep in mind that Roger and Gather and Blume are in TN)… I needed a phenomenal door prize/gift for the evening… Roger never blinked when I asked if he’d consider participating in making that door prize even more spectacular… nope… he jumped right on board with both feet and made it happen! My heart is humbled and made hopeful by such a person/businessman/friend as him!
IF Y’ALL LIVE IN TN… you will only be doing yourself a favor to call Roger @ Gather and Blüme for ANY of your floral and/or event planning needs!
IF Y’ALL DON’T LIVE IN TN… tell everyone that you know who DOES. And YOU should definitely plan on making your next trip to the Smokies even more special by adding a floral arrangement to your cabin, or hotel room, or heck… even your tent will benefit! I promise you won’t be disappointed!!"

"Roger did an amazing job on the flowers for my recent wedding at Dancing Bear. We told Roger some of our favorite flowers and colors and he took it from there. We were blown away by his creativity and warmth!! "

" I don’t even know where to begin. My now husband and I didn’t know anything about flowers, we just had an idea to have a very fall themed wedding. There aren’t enough words to say how amazing Roger was. From the bouquets to the alter to the cake table, everything was beyond perfect. It was the prettiest set up for a wedding I’ve ever seen. I loved how it felt like talking to a friend, made me feel comfortable and I completely trusted him to make sure the wedding would be beautiful. He blew us away, I can’t get over how amazing every arrangement was. I would recommend him for anything, he will go above and beyond to make sure it’s perfect !"

" Roger designed beautiful and unique one of a kind floral arrangements for our wedding at Dancing Bear Lodge. After speaking with Roger for only a few minutes, his passion for his work quickly became evident and we knew immediately that we wanted him to provide our floral arrangements. He took the time to talk to us and get to know us so that he could get a better idea of what we wanted and worked with us to provide exactly that while trying to stay within our budget. He far exceeded our expectations and many of our guests commented on his amazing work. Both friends and family who were at the wedding and even those who were not but saw the pictures have gone out of their way to comment on the beauty and uniqueness of the floral arrangements, and the pictures themselves do not do justice. While the flowers will not last forever, the memories will and Kim and I thank Roger for that. He is passionate for his work, is personable and professional, and provides amazing floral arrangements you will not find anywhere else!"

" Professional! Perfectionists! Kind, gentle, and communicative! Creative and thinks outside the box!
Soooo many wonderful things to say about these young men!!
I had the chance to meet this talented team when with my best girlfriends for our weekend getaway and they were traveling from a faraway land being fabulous.
We at Tucker’s Gap Event Center in Nashville, TN welcome talent like this because they always make us look better! Would recommend them in a New York minute!!"
