As Mother of the Bride, I immediately liked Amy and her approach on my daughter's wedding. She listened to us babble on for over three hours of all the wedding dreams and how my daughter envisioned her special day. Through the whole process, Amy was spot on with ideas and what... Read More would work for Mary's wedding. I never thought a wedding could be so overwhelming but Amy keeps a steady ship and on the day of the wedding delivered the most breath taking bouquets, centerpieces and floral effects! Little details I had forgotten about....were there. The flowers were fresh and beautifully designed. Not just squeezed together and tied in ribbon but designed. Our wedding was a month ago and it went by so fast but I will always, always remember my daughter's gasp of joy when she saw her bouquet for the first time and held it up to her dress! Thank you Amy... we are your biggest fans!!

Amy and her daughter Amanda blew me away with their creativity and their impeccable taste. They made our event so unique and memorable that people are still talking about the "amazing flowers" and the "incredible attention to detail".


Love, love, love Amy!

Amy went above and beyond my expectations. Her creativity, professionalism and knowledge blew me away. She was able to understand my vision between conversation, photos and Pinterest and enhance it exponentially. She is thoughtful and honest in her work and completed things in...

She has a person/company that she can refer you to for just about anything; specialty desserts, linens, favors, caterers, etc. She was so much more than a florist; she was like my wedding planner. The flowers and decor turned out beautiful and Amy made it so I was able to focus on other things the day of the wedding. I would highly recommend Amy!

Amy did an excellent job on our wedding flowers. I do not live where we got married, making it challenging to work with vendors at times.

Amy Kate Designs provided the floral decoration for our daughter's wedding in July of 2015. The wedding was not in our home town, so organizing all aspects was done via phone and email. At the very outset, when we met with Amy to discuss our ideas about the flowers, it was... Read More obvious that she was exactly the right person to turn these ideas into reality. Her research into exactly what our daughter wanted was very thorough, she freely offered advice and suggestions, and her manner was friendly, professional, and reassuring. She was a delight to work with! There were no cost surprises; everything was clearly spelled out; and Amy was not adverse to our using some of our own items rather than renting everything --- a fact that helped us keep the costs within our budget. When we arrived at the wedding venue on the day of the wedding, Amy had already been there and worked her magic! The bouquets, the centerpieces, and the aisle flowers were exactly as colorful and bright as our daughter had hoped. The blooms were of high quality, and remained fresh for days --- I couldn't bear it when they did finally wilt, far into the next week! We planned to use an antique, shabby-chic wrought iron arch as the focal point at the ceremony, and when I saw Amy's transformation of this piece, I was awed and thrilled! An abundance of vines, studded with tiny purple flowers, embellished the top of the arch, not obscuring the view through it, but creating a lush backdrop for the outdoor ceremony. The effect was elegant and spectacular --- I found it breathtaking! I could not recommend Amy Kate more enthusiastically! If she contributes her skill and wizardry to your event, you will be fortunate, indeed!

I had a small destination wedding at a private residence in Suttons Bay during the fall. I wanted the event to feel seasonal and elegant but still relaxed--and Amy knocked it out of the park. From my lush bouquet elegantly finished with silk dupioni ribbon, to the ceremony... Read More arrangements, numerous decorative touches throughout the house, and the stunning harvest table that formed the centerpiece of the reception—Amy combined seasonal foliage, flowers, fruits, vines, and candles in a way that was cohesive, warm, and classy. Amy went above and beyond to ensure that I had local flowers even late in the season (despite frost and hail!), and on the day-of she and her team put everything together quickly and smoothly. Even more than the flowers, however, Amy herself impressed me. From our very first encounter, she was warm and generous and a true professional. I planned the event from out of town, and the entire process was well-organized and collaborative. Amy was always open to my feedback and questions, and she offered great suggestions based on her extensive experience. She was honest and helped me understand what was possible and how to achieve the style I wanted within my budget, and her detailed spreadsheet proposal ensured that I understood exactly what I was getting. She was not only timely in all of her communications, even reaching out unprompted during her busy times to let me know that she was still working on my event, but she was also kind. I always felt that she was not merely listening to what I said, but really hearing me. Having strong and sometimes contradictory likes and dislikes, I was not the easiest bride, but Amy was patient and able to decipher what I wanted (even before I understood myself) and then translated it into something more beautiful and tasteful than I ever imagined. I can't recommend her enough!

I was probably not the easiest bride to work with since I had very general ideas of what I envisioned for my wedding and not a lot of time to search and plan (working mom at the time I got married). I provided some ideas with Amy's guidance and entrusted the end result to her... Read More (I had seen her work on her website and had full confidence that it would be great). When I finally saw what she created from my bouquets to the table arrangements, it brought me to tears. I was stunned by how she captured what I wanted with very little direction from me.

From our very first meeting Amy was so friendly and personal, yet very professional. That was the best part about working with her- she made me feel so comfortable, like we had known each other for years, always made me feel like my wedding was a priority, like I was her only... Read More client, and yet balanced that with maintaining the utmost professionalism. I was always comfortable being honest with her, she was so receptive and willing to collaborate with me and I felt so confident she understood my vision. She took every single like and dislike I offered her, put together a very detailed proposal of every aspect she was covering and gave me so much time and dedication to perfect it. After many, many emails, phone calls and meetings, Amy executed my dream floral arrangements, centerpieces, signage and various details. She let me lead the vision, but guided me from her experience and offered alternatives or ideas I never would have thought of on my own. She is so creative and talented, and beyond a pleasure to work with. I had so many compliments about my décor from my guests, the venue, and now two magazines that will be featuring my wedding... much in part to do with Amy's beautiful designs! While you may be initially intimidated by her pricing (I was), don't let that scare you away- the flowers and hard goods (not to mention her service) are of the highest quality I've seen (and I'm in the event industry). She works within your budget and every penny you spend with her is SO worth the peace of mind and that moment when you see your vision come to fruition.

My roots are firmly grounded in the natural order and beauty that surrounds me here in the Northern Michigan countryside. I have a deep appreciation for the natural resources of this environment and just how much they have the ability to infuse the soul. The natural beauties of these elements are firmly entrenched into everything I do. For many of us, appreciation for nature’s bounties comes naturally and for myself there are certain people who have greatly influenced my work and artistic abilities over the course of my lifetime and for those people I will be internally grateful…
