I used targeted curves to make the flowers look healthy & some more curves adjustments to brighten the pic (turn on the lights) + D&B.

Don't know if it's any good for your florist ... but I went for the spotlight romantic version ...

Re: Correcting a dark dull photo

Hi,

Here's my take on the wedding flowers. I desaturated the yellow overcast in the pink by using hue/saturation (yellow saturation slider moved to minimum with a layer mask, so the yellow in the leaves remains unchanged). Then did some color replacement painting with pink over the roses on a duplicate layer. I lowered the opacity of his layer, so the pink colorizing would look more natural. Then worked with levels and shadow/highlights to get some decent contrast and brightness. That's basically it.
