Working with Vito was absolutely wonderful!! As someone who didn't necessarily have a vision of what I wanted the flowers to look like at first, Vito was able to figure out my style and bring to life the wedding of my dreams!! He made sure that all the flowers were exactly what... Read More I wanted and that I loved every single aspect. During the sample appointment, he showed us our centerpieces, and tweeked whatever we wanted. Also, two days before the wedding, someone from the office texted me pictures of the bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets. While it wasn't what I had pictured, I just explained what I wanted changed, and they fixed the bouquets so that they were PERFECT. Having the opportunity to see them ahead of time was really awesome!! Lastly, he created such an unbelievable chuppah for us!!! We had looked at tons of pictures of chuppahs and liked little details from many, but had never seen one that we thought, "that's EXACTLY what we want" ---- until we saw ours. Vito created the most perfect chuppah for us!! We are so grateful to have gotten to work with Vito and the Carl Alan Floral Design team! They were incredible!

We worked with Heather to plan our flowers and decor for the wedding, and we were so impressed with her incredible talent and creativity. When we first sat down to plan, we were not sure exactly how to describe what we wanted. Within minutes of talking with us and looking at a... Read More couple of pictures we had brought in, Heather put together a drawing of a chuppah design, collected a sample of centerpieces, and showed us some flowers that exactly matched what we were looking for. Heather somehow took what we so inarticulately described and made it come to life even better than we could have imagined. The whole Carl Alan team is fantastic! The flowers for the wedding were gorgeous! We received so many compliments on the centerpieces, bouquets, chuppah, aisle decor, cake table, and even on the little touches of flowers on the bars and cocktail tables. The reception room was just breathtaking and even better than the mock-up! We were truly blown away by everything. If we had to do it all over again, we would absolutely go right back to Heather at Carl Alan, without hesitation! Thank you so much, Heather

We worked with Vito at Carl Alan for our wedding over Labor Day Weekend. Vito is creative and has a great eye for flower arrangements. Our chuppah for our wedding was a birch tree chuppah that Carl Alan built and it was absolutely stunning. Something I really appreciated about... Read More working with Vito is that he found ways to work within our budget and was never pushy or forceful about adding more flowers. Everything was beautiful and we didn't go over our budget. Something else I appreciated about working with Carl Alan was their flexibility. When my bouquets came in I didn't love some of the flowers for the bridesmaids' bouquets. VIto and his team were extremely kind and flexible and helped me make changes to the bouquets so that they were everything I wanted. They turned out to be absolutely stunning and we truly appreciated Vito and his team's professionalism! Carl Alan is a great florist in the Philadelphia area and I would highly recommend working with them.

Carl Alan Floral Designs did our flowers for our wedding on 8/27/16 at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. From start to finish, their staff was fantastic to work with!

We just had our wedding this past Saturday 9/3/2016. How do I ever thank Carl Alan Florist for creating my dream wedding. From the first day I met Vito I knew he cared about what I wanted and more importantly cared about me and my fiancées dream for our wedding. Vito was amazing...

They not only show you what your tables will look like right before your wedding. They made sure my bouquet and that of my bridesmaids was exactly what I wanted. No other florist would do this. My guest cannot stop talking and posting pictures everywhere about my flowers. My Chuppah was adorned in breathtaking orchids that was a masterpiece to say the least. My table settings when the doors open not only took our breath away but that of my guest. If you have a dream and want it brought to life this is your florist. So incredible and warm to work with. Truly cares about you and your vision. The design and execution is to perfection. I only wish I could of taken all the flowers home with me. I went to so many florist until I found this gem of a florist. Thank you Carl Alan Florist and Vito for creating every dream and more for our wedding. You won't be sorry if you use them no matter what your occasion may be. I only wish they had ten stars or more as a rating. Five just isn't enough.

We met with the owner, Carl Alan and he is such a great charismatic man! If I was unsure of my flower selections, they went back and came out with real flowers and put them together. It was obvious that we were going with them, just by how much time they devoted to us and how committed they were to make my day as special as it can be. The best part was a day before the wedding, they took pictures of the bouquets and sent it to me for approval. It was excellent in the pictures that I received, but the flowers in person took my breath away! My guests commented about how pretty they were and my photographer said she never saw flowers look so fresh after a full day in the July summer heat! She wants to recommend Carl Alan to some of her clients that are deciding on flowers. They were very professional, creative, talented and knowledgeable. We are incredibly happy with our flowers and would recommend them 100% to everyone!

I thought finding a florist with a considerably low budget was going to a difficult task, but that was not the case. I would never imagine that Carl Alan Florist would have been something we were able to afford. Our first meeting with Vito proved me wrong. He was so easy to talk...

We interviewed over a dozen florists in Philadelphia.

Vito at Carl Alan was beyond a joy to work... Read More with - he is a dynamic and creative genius that brought our ideas to life in ways we never imagined. I am sure many brides can relate to feeling like you spend so much time and money planning your dream day, and then pushy vendors want to do their idea of perfect ( and of course with an added cost). This was the only florist we met with that truly wanted to execute our vision exactly as we imagined, and we could not have asked for better value or service. Vito even let us come by the day before the wedding to look at the flowers and make sure they were absolutely perfect! We were married almost 2 weeks ago and my bouquet is still picture perfect in a vase of water. The quality and value is there, and this team was a dream to work with. We would choose Carl Alan again and again. Thank you Vito!!

We got married in July 2015. I was never someone who even wanted flowers in my wedding and didn’t think they were worth the money.

I told Vito that I wanted “wildflowers” in the bouquets and “candles” for my centerpieces. He created beautiful bouquets that were within a very reasonable budget and amazing centerpieces that reflected the mood of the reception. He was professional and fun to work with.
