Childhood friends Jaclyn Montesano and Catherine McNew have always dreamed of running a business together.

After working together for several years at Carrollwood Florist, the pair decided to open Marigold Flower Co., a wedding floral boutique.

Carrollwood Florist, which is owned by Montesano's in-laws, has been serving the community for more than 20 years.

Now, it has expanded to include Marigold Flower Co., which will cater exclusively to brides. Montesano and McNew have created floral designs for more than 300 brides, and will bring their experience and passion to help brides in a place designed especially for them.

"We help brides from the start to the finish, working directly with them, making sure the days leading up to their wedding and their big day is as stress-free as possible," McNew said.

Marigold Flower Co. offers the latest floral trends with premium, high-quality flowers. They offer a variety of services, including delivery, setup and onsite design.
