This was my absolute favorite part of the wedding process. Working with Ashley [Good Earth Floral] was everything I could have dreamed of. She is the most creative, personable, and inspirational person I have met. Her work is beautiful! My fall wedding was at sunset on a rooftop and the arrangements added the most stunning and romantic feel to the entire evening. All of the altar arrangements, bridal bouquets, and boutonnieres were so fresh and elegant. They were the definition of perfection and exceeded my expectations. I fell in love with them from the moment they were delivered and couldn't help but capture them in every picture. Our wedding day was a true reflection of us as a couple and I give this to Ashley's passion for achieving a design that met our wedding vision and style. Ashley, thank you so much for creating such a beautiful and dreamy feel to my wedding. You have such a wonderful talent and an incredible way of making brides feel so special on one of the most important days of their life. I feel lucky to have met you and had your expertise on my timeless, romantic, and absolutely perfect wedding day. I'm blessed by the ways you use your gifts to love on people. Thanks for this!

I was so thrilled to be able to work with Ashley at Good Earth Floral Design Studio. She got creative to work within our budget and still provide the most gorgeous flowers for our August wedding. My vision was to have sweeping, loose floral arrangements for our reception, garlands with greenery for fireplaces and the cake table, and an elegant flowy bouquet. Ashley delivered on everything and then some. She was familiar with my reception site and worked with them directly so I didn't have to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone looking for the best florist in Kansas City!

We used Good Earth Floral Design for our wedding this summer. We were going for a more rustic feel with the bouquets, reception and ceremony decor. After meeting with Ashley only a few times she was able to take the vision we had and turn it into a reality. All of the floral arrangements by far exceeded expectations. Everything was absolutely stunning! I never imagined that we would receive so many compliments from guests on how beautiful the decorations were. Good Earth Floral Design is a fabulous company to work with and we HIGHLY recommend them!

Our wedding flowers were so fabulous! They stay in your price range, no questions asked, were on time and definitely do not short you on flowers. I will be sure to tell everyone I meet to use Good Earth Floral for their events in the future!

Ashley was great with the flowers and was wonderful to work with. She was very concerned with making it exactly what we wanted and even customized it to what we wanted after we received her bid to meet our budget needs. The flowers looked beautiful and many guests commented on how they highlighted the venue. Highly recommended.

Ashlee was very helpful and gave her flowers colors and budget and she stuck to it! I even made a few last minute changes and worked out great! The flowers were delivered on time to the church and looked amazing! Ashlee is very talented!

Ashley was an absolute dream to work with. She made our wedding more beautiful than I even imagined. She had my aesthetic down to a T, and was incredibly easy to work with. Everything was in place and on time, and more lush/fresh than I expected. She also went way beyond the expected flower arrangements and added a lot of personal touches to our day. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her eye for making everything lovely!

I used Ashley for my August 2013 wedding flowers and I was not disappointed. I knew from our first meeting that she understood my concept, and unlike so many other florists, that she understood my budget as well. On the night of, the flowers were more beautiful and spectacular than I could have imagined. I also rented gorgeous runners from her for the tables. She took what I imagined to a whole new level and I had so many compliments from so many people about her work. She also returned emails and quotes to me in a very timely manner and was easy to get in touch with.

I recently got married this summer. After seeing Ashley's booth at a wedding show I was sold. She had an awesome personality and I loved everything she displayed. I met with her and found she was actually in our budget! YAY! She is great with working around your budget! She has a gift of making your wedding day look like something you came up with. I heard so many comments on how our wedding day was my style. I really appreciated Ashley's flexibility. The flowers were gorgeous on the wedding day! Better than I even imagined and looked amazing in photos. I received so many compliments on the table decorations. Everyone raved about them.

Fantastic to work with and such beautiful flowers. Very good at taking what you say and making them a reality. Also very nice about revising the estimate based on changing priorities, vision, and budget over the planning process. Couldn't recommend more highly!

It is simply impossible for words to truly describe the gratitude we have for Ashley Hotka, owner of Good Earth Floral Design Studio! We had the most incredible time working with Ashley, & our wedding flowers were more than we could have dreamt! We felt like we were in a fairy tale!
From the very beginning Ashley took the time to get to know me, my style, & the theme that I wanted for the wedding. She has an amazing talent, & perfectly translated our vision while remembering the special details/mementos that were so important us. Every meeting felt like I was talking to a dear friend that I had known for years. Ashley always made me feel special, & had the most genuine way of making me feel excited about the wedding (which was difficult for anyone to get me to relax during most of the planning chaos).
Ashley was ALWAYS (including the day of my wedding) available for any questions that we had, & was great about running lots of quotes for all the the random add-ons I would think of. She truly captured my vision, and made our decor perfect by adding her brilliant professional touches! She was able to do that all while staying within our budget.
It is so rare to find a vendor like GEF, & someone as genuine, passionate, & talented as Ashley! She truly cares about her brides (and grooms), & you can feel it from the first time you speak with her. She is the whole package, & absolutely took care of everything including set up! Her day of execution was truly flawless! As a Bride, it is an undescribable feeling when you have complete trust in your florist, and we truly did with Ashley! My bouquet was much more than I could have ever imagined, the compliments I have recieved are just never ending! The bridesmaid's bouquets, and all the boutonnieres were just gorgeous; our bridal party looked stunning! Ashely turned this Bride (who wasn't at all previously) into a huge flower lover!
We would HIGHLY recommend GEF to anyone! Ashley truly went above and beyond!

I had a wonderful experience with Ashley at Good Earth Floral. She was so great to work with. I, being a creative person, had a vision for my wedding day and the decor was very important to me. Ashley was quick to jump on board with my vision and connected with it perfectly. We would have great sessions, bouncing ideas off of each other, which was so fun! Ashley took my vision and improved it.
She was respectful of my tight budget and truly delivered what we had discussed. She came up with so many creative ways, which I LOVED, to keep the cost down. The vases for the bridesmaid bouquets, the candles and fabulous spiky orbs... perfection! The flowers we gorgeous and exactly what I asked for.. I had very specific requests.
I would recommend Ashely to anyone!

Ashley at Good Earth Floral Design Studio was amazing to work with! She understood my vision and created beautiful arrangements for the wedding. The amount of time and attention she gave me was incredible. She truly cared about making the flowers special for me- she somehow achieved everything I wanted, and on a budget! I received so many compliments at the wedding- the overhang with glass bulbs filled with succulents and candles was the hit of the night. I may have cried when I saw all the flowers. Hey, it was an emotional day! Ashley went above and beyond, and I have already recommended her to a few of my engaged friends!

I would recommend Ashley to any bride! She did a wonderful job knowing exactly what I wanted and the flowers couldn't have been more beautiful. She stayed within my budget and made sure I had everything I needed. She did such a wonderful job!

First of all, Ashley is an amazing woman to work with! I didn't have a very specific plan for my flowers so I gave her a lot of room to be creative and she did such an excellent job! The flowers were absolutely gorgeous! She is super easy to get in touch with and willing to work with you until you have a floral plan that you are in love with. Unfortunately, I didn't have a very large flower budget so I only ordered the bouquets and bouts from her but if I had the money, she would have done all of my altar pieces and centerpieces as well!

We would like to thank you for the amazing flowers for our wedding day. I do not have words to express the beauty of the arrangements you created. You really went above and beyond our expectations. The bouquet, the flowers for my bridesmaids, and the centerpieces were all perfect – even better than the vision I had going into the reception.
You are a true “Artist”. Thank you very much.

I was in crisis mode as my wedding was only a couple weeks away and I hadn't ordered my bouquet and boutonniere for my small, informal wedding. I reached out to Ashley at Good Earth Floral Design Studio with my small budget and inspiration, and she came right to the rescue! Ashley was such a pleasure to work with. She took some photos I liked and designed a bouquet that was beyond my dreams. She delivered the flowers to my hotel herself, ensuring that everything was to my liking. I really enjoyed the service and quality of product that I received from Good Earth Floral Design Studio.

Ashley Hotka was wonderful! She completely understood my vision and did exactly what I had envisioned. I overheard people saying that the centerpieces and flowers were “so Cheryl”. Ashley talked with me, looked at my stuff I planned to use and came up with a beautiful assortment that matched my wildflower garden with peacock colors and flowers perfectly. The way she decorated the gazebo we were married under was beautiful. She added so many little details. I asked for an assortment of different centerpieces that still all flowed together and she did it perfectly. Some tables had tall vases with curly willow branches and hanging candles, some had birdcages with flowers and candles; some had candlesticks with teacups and saucers with flowers. It was all so beautiful. Ashley was friendly, helpful, creative and very reliable. I highly recommend Ashley Hotka at Good Earth Floral. She is amazing!

I loved working with Ashley on our flowers & centerpieces for our wedding! She was so easy to work with. It made the hectic day seem effortless. Her team was quick and very professional. I definitely recommend to any future brides looking for a easy-going person to help them out.

Even though we live out of state, Ashley came through for us, better than I could have imagined! I did not walk in with a clear picture of what I wanted or how to articulate what I like, but she just knew what I was seeing in my mind's eye!
The flowers and displays were gorgeous; we got tons of compliments. Plus, Ashley was great to work with and easy to get in touch with when I had questions.
I am so happy we used her for our important day!
