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!

Arranging florals on a budget is really intimidating and stressful. The team at Carl Alan was so great and accommodating. Vito was so much help with articulating my tastes into an actual idea and theme. He picked out and presented several options for blooms for centerpieces,... Read More bouquets and boutonnieres.

I had an incredible experience with Carl Alan leading up to my wedding, they helped me to feel confident in my styling and paid great attention to details during our two meetings prior to the wedding. I loved how they allowed me to have a "look" appointment to be able to really... Read More visualize what the arrangements were going to look like. They didn't force me into certain looks because it was what they thought would be best or what would make them more money. The ONLY disappointment was with my bridal bouquet, I had repeated mentioned that I didn't like rounded bouquets, yet on the day of when I saw mine in person it was so rounded, without the natural textured feel that I had wanted. However, their person on site was able to adjust it to make it more natural looking, and even though it wasn't my favorite it still looked great in pictures.

Carl Alan is absolutely the best florist in the Philadelphia area. They brought our dream to reality and took our breath away with their work.

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...

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!

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... Read More to work with and exceeded every expectation we had. Breathtaking and spectacular doesn't nearly describe enough what they created for our special day. 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.

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.

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!
