I can't even imagine our wedding day without Amy. She is literally THE BEST! Not only is she incredibly talented in her field, but her personality makes her a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond her job description. After everything was said and done she was much... Read More more than just our florist, she was our wedding planner and a close friend. I honestly can't even begin to describe how beautiful and unique her floral arrangements were. They blew everyone away and were one of the highlights of the evening. Her work is truly breathtaking and left me speechless when I first saw it. The lush table runners she created had a unique blend of fresh flowers and seasonal fruits. We had a large arbor we were married under and the sweeping flowers and foliage made it a beautiful focal piece. I am still receiving complements on the flowers 2 months later. Amy's ability to work effortlessly with our other vendors made the entire day run smooth. I could not have done it without Amy! 100% RECOMMEND!

Amy did an AMAZING job as florist for our wedding at Fountain Point Resort this summer. She went above and beyond during our planning process – and as a bride living in NYC organizing a wedding in Northern Michigan without a wedding planner, Amy stepped in to give me advice and... Read More recommended vendors along the way. She was very responsive and scheduled calls with me regularly to check in and go over our floral contract; she was so patient answering my questions and looking over Pinterest photos to make sure she knew exactly what I wanted things to look like. She was always mindful of our budget and continuously recommended ways to ensure we could achieve the look I wanted but also keep cost relatively low. On the day of the wedding, she was timely and efficient, and decorated our wedding so beautifully – from the centerpieces (greenery, candles and lanterns), to the bouquets and floral arrangements on wine barrels – we got so many compliments from guests on how amazing it looked. Amy is everything you want in a wedding florist! She is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

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!

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…
