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.

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,.

Carl Alan is the best posted 7/23/2014

They did such a great job with everything from my decorations to my bridal bouquet. I worked with Heather and she is great. She helped me reduce costs wherever possible and worked out a rate that was going to fit my budget.

Carl Alan did an absolutely amazing job with the flowers for my wedding. Heather was a blast to work with, and is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her job. The flowers were beautiful and every detail was flawless on the day of my wedding. Heather made sure to get me everything that I wanted and spent a lot of time making sure I was 100% happy. I cannot recommend Carl Alan enough!

Absolutely Outstanding Work! posted 6/27/2014

Carl Alan Floral Designs did a phenomenal job with all of the floral arrangements for my wedding and flowers for the bridal party. The individualized attention and intense desire to please the customer is through the roof. Vito took control, added his own special touches, and made my wedding day even more fantastic than I could have ever imagined.

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.

My Vision Brought to Life posted 9/19/2013

Adam was fantastic to work with for my wedding. I gave him an idea of what I was looking for, the feel I wanted for the wedding and my budget and he came back with such beautiful designs! It was great being able to see the centerpieces in person prior to the wedding so I knew exactly what they would look like the day of the event. He also guided me to spend money on certain areas that were noticed by guests and save money in other areas. He was very honest and great to work with! Their front of house is also great and extremely responsive.

Vito was great! posted 8/11/2013

Vito was awesome, he knew exactly what I wanted and it turned out beautiful! I loved my bridal bouquet so much, I got it preserved so I can remember it forever. Everyone commented how beautiful the flowers were and loved the ceremonial decorations.

If it was a bit more affordable, it would have been perfect.

We used Carl Alan for our bouquets and centerpieces for our wedding! From our first meeting with Vitto, he helped us through the process of picking the right flowers that would look great together and go with our wedding colors. They were flexible and helped us stay within our budget. The bouquets arrived at the hotel where we were getting ready, right on time and looked great! The centerpieces were beautiful as well and were exactly what we talked about. I would definitely recommend Carl Alan!

Best decision for a florist in Philly posted 2/19/2013 (modified 2/19/2013)

Im very indecisive and it was no different when it came to wedding planing, but the one decision I was clear on was that i wanted CARL ALAN FLORIST to do my wedding bouquets. From the beginning they were patient and kind and answered all of my questions and gave me exactly what I asked for and with an unbelievable price. They even showed me what my flowers would look like on my wedding day with every flower I asked for, highly recommend them. Carl even recommended certain add ons for my flowers to pop even more and really stand out, and our collaboration turned out amazing, I was extremely happy with the final product. They delivered my flowers on time and even checked everything before they left, my flowers were even more vibrant and full on my day than when I initially saw the mock up, which they did with fresh flowers right in front of me for free, thanks Kate, alan, and everyone else who helped me on my wedding day!

Words don’t even begin to describe the beauty and lavishness of my wedding thanks to Vito and his team! I had a very short engagement and flowers were our last big hurtle. My mom and I met with Vito two days before Thanksgiving, 4 weeks before my wedding and he spent hours working with us to bring our visions together! His warmth and love for his profession came through in every detail. I imagined a 40’s glam winter wonderland feel. I wanted minimal flowers and my mom wanted a floral shop to explode within the ballroom. Vito brought both of our visions together with such ease and design that we couldn’t have pictured it any other way. We left our first meeting elated with the images he created for us and excited for our next meeting.
My bridal bouquet was the most exquisite bouquet I have ever seen. The bouquet was made up of Stephanotis with crystals in the center of each flower. The stems were wrapped in crystal wrapping that gave a touch of vintage glam and elegance to match my gown. The best part of my bouquet was that it lasted for days after my wedding so I was able to enjoy it not just one day but many days! My bridesmaids carried tulips accented with dusty miller and wrapped in sheer silver. The dusty miller gave the bouquets a touch of winter and a softness to the girls dresses.
The Centerpieces, I don’t even know where to begin! My centerpieces had to have been 10 feet tall! The vases were a mercury glass with curly willows coming out. Each willow had white dendrobium orchids tied onto the branches. Hanging from them were matching mercury glass votive candles which created a warm lighting for the table accented by hanging crystals. Surrounding the base of the flowers were more crystal vases for additional candle light. On my other tables we had centerpieces made up in the same vases however they had crystal chandelier toppers. Sitting on top of the vase was an arrangement of white hydrangea, white snapdragon and white dendrobiums. All the flowers my mom had wanted in the room gingerly danced on these beautiful vases. Our place card table was just as magnificent as the centerpieces with such glam and pop you knew you were at an event to be remembered. As you entered the room you immediately felt the glamorous vibe of the 40’s with the winter wonderland touching on everything.
I wish I was still planning my wedding or some type of event just so I can see the magic Vito would create with just a few ideas you may have. He is truly an artist with a talent for what he does but also a love and warmth that makes you want to work with him. He truly can work with any bride and put all her worries at ease. His team is a pleasure to work with especially his assistant Kathleen who will answer any crazy question you may have and all your e-mails as you panic weeks before your event. They definitely must have had a training class for crazy brides because you leave there with a feeling of calm and relief that is so rare when planning a wedding!

Choosing Carl Alan for our wedding was the best decision we could have made. Vito was so easy going and wonderful to work with that it was one less stress in the wedding planning. Our wedding flowers were simply gorgeous, and people are still talking about our chuppah four months later. We would highly recommend Carl Alan to any bride and groom!
