Beautiful Wedding posted 4/9/2014 (modified 4/10/2014)

Carl Alan did a beautiful job with the flowers. We had some tricky situations around the church as it did not have pews but they made a way to make it work with the pew flowers. Additionally we were on a boat, and some of the centerpieces had tipped over and broke. They were immediately replaced and were found for another place on the boat where it still looked beautifully decorated but was stable.

They were flexible and professional. Our designer Vito did a great job helping us pick out flowers that matched our scheme. The bouquets were flawless.

Beautiful flowers, wonderful service posted 4/2/2014 (modified 4/3/2014)

There is a reason why they have been in business for so long. They are total professionals who work with you to deliver what you want within your budget. Unlike some other florists I met with, I never felt pressured by them to add more than I wanted, we did not get the high pressure "up sell". They respect your wishes and your budget while still sharing their expertise so that you have amazing flowers on the big day and a hassle-free experience.

Outstanding! posted 2/23/2014 (modified 2/24/2014)

I can't say enough about how pleased I am with Carl Alan's floral designs. They made my vision for my Centerpieces come true and did a beautiful job! I was so impressed and happy with the way everything came out. Our bouquets were gorgeous-the highest quality of florals I could have asked for. We worked with Andrew the entire time from consultation to the day of delivery and he was amazing. I don't know much about flowers but Andrew helped make my vision a reality. I had no troubles throughout the entire planning and payment processes. I would highly recommend carl Alan for any event needing Centerpieces or flowers-they really made my wedding shine.

Beautiful posted 10/14/2014

Who knew flowers would be SO much $$?! I knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it (thank you pinterest) but to find the right florist who wouldn't charge me an arm and leg was ridiculous. Until I came across Carl Alan. I spoke with Vito, who right away was so down to earth and funny that I knew if he price was right, it was going to be a breeze. And I couldn't have been more accurate!!! Since I already knew what I wanted, that made his job a lot easier and since I cant put together a center piece that made my job a lot easier to. I met with him and it was easy, friendly and got me even more excited. I came back a few weeks later to see a mock up of my centerpieces and WOW. The day of my wedding everything arrived on time, looked even more beautiful than before and I got SO many compliments. Amazing team, amazing work, and if I ever need floral arrangements for anything again- I'm going straight to Carl Alan!!

Beautiful Flowers posted 9/29/2014

Vito was an awesome florist to work with at Carl Alan. He really appreciated my tastes and worked with me to create a beautiful flower backdrop to my wedding day. My bouquet was stunning and all the arrangements went perfectly with our venue. The best part was that I didn't have to worry at all about set up. They even moved flowers from the ceremony into the reception without anyone even noticing. They are a little on the higher end price wise, but you absolutely get what you pay for. It was definitely worth the extra cost for peace of mind on my wedding day.

I came late to Carl Alan (a month before our wedding), as I had been intending to arrange my flowers myself. I got as far as picking what I wanted and pricing it out, and then realized I really didn't want to stress about bouquets the night before the wedding. I called Carl Alan on a recommendation from a friend. Heather saw me the same day and we discussed in great detail what I was looking for. We talked about color, shape, texture, what flowers are hardy, which are too delicate, etc. etc
My flower budget was fairly small (under $1000), and Heather did everything to make sure that not only would I be within my budget, but also that I would still have beautiful flowers and an incredible design. They totally lived up to their promises and then some! When I got the preliminary pictures the day before, they took my breath away!
Also, for any crazy organizers out there like me, I really appreciated that when they sent the proposal over, they broke everything down in a spreadsheet, right down to exactly what flowers of what color were going in each arrangement. It was amazing!

Most importantly, I LOVED my flowers. I was SO thrilled with how breathtakingly beautiful they were, and received many compliments on them from guests. They held up perfectly on one of the hottest days of the summer and well into the next week!

Thank you Heather and Carl Alan Florists, for beautifying our day even more with your incredible work!

EXCEPTIONAL posted 9/24/2014

Carl Alan provided our wedding flowers. Everything, from the boutonnieres to the bridal party bouquets to the table centerpieces to the cake topping flowers to the ceremony canopy, was EXCEPTIONAL. The flowers really set a beautiful tone for the event. Our coordinator was easy to work with and I appreciated that they offered an opportunity to see samples of the designs we chose before the wedding day. I would recommend them highly to anyone!

From start to finish, Carl Alan delivered superior service and exceeded our expectations for the flowers for our wedding. I went in with no idea of what I wanted for centerpieces, and Vito took all the pictures I sent to them ahead of time and threw together a sample during our first consultation...I LOVED it! He made my vision come to life! Even the day of the wedding, when the flowers were delivered, they were so much more beautiful than anything I could have imagined. He even sent me pictures two days before to make sure I approved! You will NOT regret going with Carl Alan Floral Design for your wedding flowers!!

Beauty and Perfection! posted 9/3/2014

I cannot say enough good things about the team at Carl Alan! From my initial visit where I received a tour and saw actual wedding flowers being designed, to meeting Carl Alan himself, to having an easy relaxing meeting with my designer Heather! My experience was fun, beautiful and I was always treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. I feel like everyone that works at Carl Alan befriends you and really listens to your desires and needs for you wedding day. Heather took my inspiration pictures and ran with them and I honestly think my centerpieces and bouquets turned out a million times better than my inspiration pics! I was overwhelmed with how beautiful everything was and how it made the venue complete! Heather even took time out of her busy working day to come to my hotel and put charms on all the girls bouquets when I wasn't able to drop them off at the studio. What business do you know goes out of their way to make sure YOU are their priority!!! Go visit Carl Alan today! You will not question you decision after your first meeting with them!!

Floral Dreams posted 7/31/2014 (modified 8/1/2014)

Carl Alan Floral designs exceeded my expectations for my wedding at the JG Domestic/Cira Center at Garces Catering. Our designer, Vito was amazing at making my ideas and inspirations come to life. He was very flexible and incorporated changes to my floral design. Everyone at my wedding commented on our how beautiful and vibrant my flowers were on my wedding day. The venue was a blank space at the the flowers really made the venue shine. I choose an unusual bridal bouquet and I was in love with the floral combination. Vito made my Pinterest dreams realistic. He incorporated rustic elements through a beautiful chuppah. Vito was very professional and I would highly recommend Carl Alan Designs Ltd,.

STUNNING posted 6/21/2014

Vito and his team at Carl Alan were so amazing. They are true artists. I was planning a wedding in Philadelphia from Florida and only communicated through phone and email. My mom went and met Vito and she loved him and his team. I sent them pictures of centerpieces and inspiration and they carried it out so perfectly and exactly what I wanted. My husband looked at me the other day and said "the flowers were beautiful and everyone commented on how beautiful they were but they are dying".. Having to get rid of them were the hardest part because they were so beautiful! I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on my bouquet as well. I had a vision of what I wanted and Vito and his team made it a reality. My husband called Carl Alan and had a bouquet of red roses sent to me at my parents house a couple of days before the wedding and they were the most beautiful bouquet of red roses I had ever seen. I will recommend them to anyone and everyone for all of their flower needs, big and small!

Wonderful Experience! posted 1/19/2014 (modified 1/20/2014)

I used Carl Alan as the florist for my June, 2013 wedding and was extremely pleased! I specifically worked with Vito, who was absolutely incredible from start to finish. I went into my initial consultation with general thoughts regarding color and style preferences, but I was unsure how to make my visions come to life. Vito did an amazing job helping me flesh out my ideas and make them a reality. He was extremely energetic, creative, and fun to work with from the very start. At our first meeting, he took me around the studio and showed me actually flowers and how they would look together in different types of arrangements. As someone with very little knowledge of flowers, it was extremely helpful to get a visual example of what he was offering. Vito and his staff were extremely flexible and easy to work with throughout the whole planning process. They were very reliable throughout, and on the day of everything arrived on-time to the correct locations. Most importantly, I could not have been more pleased with the final product! The flower arrangements were absolutely breathtaking and the venue was made more elegant that I possibly could have imagined! I was particularly impressed by the beautiful Chuppah, which he designed and built from scratch. I would recommend Vito and Carl Alan Design without hesitation!

Wonderful Wedding and the Flowers Were Perfect! posted 11/22/2013 (modified 11/23/2013)

Our wedding was on November 10th, 2013. We met with Carl Alan through a recommendation and absolutely fell in love with their customer service and their knowledge floral arrangements. We had a color idea in mind and Vito came up with the most perfect flowers to accent our scheme. Carl Alan Floral Designs were very reasonable priced and the value and experience they bring is priceless! Thank you for making our wedding day beautiful with the perfect touch of elegance and class. The only thing that out shined the beauty of the flowers was the beauty of my wife!!

Beautiful center pieces posted 10/28/2013

I was married at the end of September and I worked with Vito a couple of months before the wedding. My husband and I met with Vito in the office and we went through the different pictures that they had, found one we liked as a starting point and then modified it down to what was our vision.
I liked working with them because as someone who doesn't know flowers very well they were patient with us and gave us different ideas that would work with our colors as well as the overall look that we were going for.
When they were making the bouquets they noticed that one the flower that was noted in our contract was not the color that we were going for. They called to confirm and sent pictures. That flower color was not what I wanted and I would have been very upset if it was delivered that way. They made up bouquets with an alternate flower in the color that I wanted and sent pictures for me to confirm. All of the bouquets turned out how I wanted them.
Carl Alan worked with our venue and everything turned out beautifully. They even sent me to contact information for a place to preserve my bouquet when I asked them since they do not provide this service.
Overall I was very happy with Carl Alan and the staff there.
