I am very disappointed with my experience with Atelier de LaFleur. In my initial, in-person, meeting with Colleen, she took notes and seemed to be very attentive to all my requests. I then followed up with the meeting with an extremely detailed...
list of everything I wanted, including pictures I had annotated with my likes and dislikes in a floral arrangement. I was very clear that I wanted predominantly succulents and greens with the occasional white flower to break it up. I was also extremely clear that I do not like roses. It took Colleen nearly 2 months and a reminder email to give me a vague proposal. I went ahead with payment assuming she was going to use the information I had emailed her. On the day of the wedding the flowers were delivered and basically everything was wrong. My bouquet was supposed to have the overflow/waterfall look and it turn out to be perfectly round. It was also completely white roses with three small succulents hidden inside (one of them was also starting to rot)! The flower arrangements for my alter did not appear to have a single succulent in them, and the boutonniere and cake florals were also white roses. The funny part about the cake is that I found a photo online that was perfect…I did not want to change a thing about it. There was literally no way to screw it up, but Atelier de LaFleur managed to do just that. When all is said and done, I got each of the items I had ordered, and they were still pretty, but I certainly wished I would have walked away when I didn’t get a response in a timely manner. I am also concerned that maybe she did not care to focus on my order because it was a small wedding with minimal florals, and I also did not hire her as a day-of coordinator. I am not sure if any other brides with small wedding have experienced this, but I would caution any future brides if they were thinking about working with this florist.

planning process, Colleen and her team were responsive and attentive. We felt confident and relieved going into our big day.
Unfortunately the day of the wedding, crucial pieces that were in our contract and discussed at length were missing. For example, no gold candelabras were included in our ceremony, the floral in the arch was so hard to see it was almost non-existent. I felt and still feel after looking at photos that our ceremony decor was a complete miss and nothing tied together. It is still incredibly disappointing.
Colleen's team did a beautiful job with the bride and bridal party flowers as well as the floral throughout the reception as Julianna is very talented! However, they either ran out of time or forgot to tag the succulents that were placed on each guest's plate. These were the gifts guests were supposed to take home with them that included a thank you and care instructions. Out of 178 guests, our guess is that 25/178 guests knew to take home the succulents we individually paid for. The candles on all of the tables were not the candles included in our contract and agreed upon. Our guess is they were put to use for another wedding Colleen booked the same day as ours. Colleen never showed up at our wedding before, after, or during. This was something that was never discussed with us that her team would be 100% taking over for her the day of.
Most importantly, after approaching Colleen with our concerns weeks after our wedding, she was incredibly unprofessional and defensive. Her lack of empathy and compassion was shocking after our wedding day was negatively impacted and we spent thousands of dollars with her. Thankfully our incredible planner and her staff worked overtime to cover things up and make the best of it.

step of the way.
To summarize what I've written below, the staff at Atelier de LaFleur are dependable, creative, competent, flexible, efficient, organized and just generally great to work with. Their hard work leading up to and on the day of our wedding allowed my husband and I to spend the entire weekend present and in the moment with each other and our families. We literally didn't worry about one thing on our wedding day because we knew if something might come up, they would handle it.
To give some context, our wedding was in a very remote area in the mountains/desert outside of Tucson. The ceremony was held at my parent's home and the reception was at a nearby rural ranch (think dive bar meets horse ranch).
Having seen examples of Atelier de LaFleur's work and loving all of it, we were completely open to their aesthetic and design vision from the get-go; we basically just let them do their thing with flowers, decorations, lighting, etc. and we couldn't have been more impressed with the results. She totally understood that we wanted to transform a slightly run down ranch into a magical, unique and unforgettable experience, and she executed that vision flawlessly.
From day one, they were incredibly responsive and always available by phone, text and email. We really appreciated that in the beginning stages of planning, they helped us dream big and then as our timeline progressed, they helped us narrow down our priorities to keep the cost within our budget.
They made multiple site visits prior to the wedding to ensure that the day would run smoothly and that all of our vendors would have the logistical support they needed. Our reception site was a bit of a challenge to work with at times, but they led the charge with frequent communication which really took the stress off of us. Erin, our planner, also checked in with us in the months leading up to the wedding to make sure we had done the unglamorous things like buy our wedding bands and figured out licensing (both of which had slipped our minds! Thanks, Erin!)
They helped source the tent, designed the flowers/boutonnieres, lighting, candles and decorations and our venue was truly sparkling and magical after they was done. They also added some decorations to the ceremony space and our Airstream rental to give it the perfect desert vibe we were after.
Since we live out of state, we really relied on them for vendor recommendations. We ended up hiring nearly everyone they suggested (caterer, cupcake vendor, DJ, tent/supply vendors and hair/makeup artist (all of whom we LOVED!)). In addition to those vendors, they also helped coordinate our late night taco truck, guest bus transportation to/from the venue, photographer and photo booth staff. The night ended up being incredibly windy and they made some last-minute adjustments to make sure everyone stayed safe and comfortable. Somehow, despite all of this work, Erin still checked in with my husband and I throughout the night with a smile to make sure we had enough food/water/bevs and address any issues that arose. I'm telling you - they is the best!
We had an ideal experience working with Atelier de LaFleur and we are forever grateful at how smoothly and beautifully everything turned out

o negotiate a contract with Colleen. Other vendors had warned me to stay away but I thought her style was beautiful. Looking back, I should have listened to them and when she kept pushing this shabby chic succulent look that did not match my elegant classic wedding type, it should have shot up red flags. She was unable to think outside the box and that is what I needed.
After a great deal of debate, I was going to sign just cause I wanted to "move on" and get all my vendors aligned. When it came time to sign a bid with her, she suddenly added a $3,000 stylist fee AFTER she sent us the official contract which threw us for a loop. She wouldn't answer our calls, had her assistant Mica call us back and generally very "unbusiness like". Everyone warned me that she is flaky, volatile, not a good business person and overall unreliable. She turned out to be all these things and we were "lucky" she threw in this fake fee at the last minute that put us over the edge. Even my husband, who is literally the easiest going person who likes everyone, was completely disappointed in her behavior.
We ended up using a more liked vendor who did an amazing job and put together arrangements that my friends and family are still talking about. Honestly, my wedding was the best day of my life and one of the best parts of my day was how well my vendors all got along and how much they did beyond what their contract asked of them because they loved their jobs. I was so lucky to have great vendors and not having Colleen as one of them.

I can't say enough positive things about the girls at Atelier!!!
As a background, I was not the easiest bride to work with because I live in Perth, Australia, and was only able to meet with them once before the wedding (6 months prior), and...
I was very, very relaxed and vague about it all (we were planning one in Australia as well). I can name maybe two flowers, and my only real guide was I wanted to marry Australia and Arizona - so banksia and cactus. They absolutely nailed it - with all guests (especially our Aussie friends) raving about the decor.
All correspondence was done via email or with my mom and they were so patient and flexible with us, guiding me to the perfect decor. Atelier also provided a photo table (sorry if my nephews broke the camera!!!), seating chart mirror, and tablescapes for cocktail tables, signing table, dining, cake, and my hair piece (side note: again, so wonderful and patient. I didn't decide until the week of the wedding, when I got into Arizona, that I wanted to have one and the made the perfect piece to match my floral dress - not the easiest task).
As evidenced by their photos, Atelier does a spectacular job with flowers and greenery (so Pin-able). More than that, they provided all around wedding styling and planning, especially for the details I wasn't really focused on (seating chart sign...).
In sum, they pretty much read my mind and made the day beyond lovely and easy.

m a price that I wanted to stay around and they gave me ways that I could do that--including letting me buy any extra decor/plants I wanted that they would gladly bring and set-up for me the day of (I didn't end up doing this, but it was awesome of them to offer). Speaking of decor, since they can also act as event planners--an option I did not elect to use--we were able to rent two Fujifilm Instax cameras from them, and they provided us with a guest book set-up to put the pictures in, which our guests loved! They responded quickly to each email, and when our initial designer had to move out of town, we got an email from our new designer, Claire, saying she had looked over all of what we wanted and that we had nothing to worry about. Whenever I found pics of new floral designs I loved, or had to make changes to the number of arrangements I needed, they made sure to update proposals and keep track of my latest interests :) The day of was better than I could have ever hoped for!! They were on time and did absolutely everything they said they would do--including staying through the ceremony to move aisle markers to the reception tables (another way they saved me money, and cutdown on waste). My bouquet looked exactly how I wanted and was beyond beautiful! My niece loved her little posey of matching flowers, which she didn't put down all night, and my sister was thrilled with her bouquet as well. At the end of the night, Claire and one other person came to collect what I had rented from them, so I didn't have to worry about anything! All in all, they did such an amazing job, and I couldn't recommend them more!!! They helped make our wedding the perfect day that it was :)

If she doesn't have exactly what you want, furniture, flowers, signs, lighting, she will find it for you.
