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!

Vito is the best at what he does! I know nothing about flowers. I sent him some photos of things I liked and showed up for my appointment and he had a million ideas.

Vito and the whole team at Carl Alan is AMAZING! My mom called Carl Alan in September for our NYE wedding and told them that while she knew she was calling a florist, I didn't want flowers at the wedding (it makes me sad when the flowers die...) and the Carl Alan team... Read More delivered!! The Carl Alan team is incredibly creative and came up with these tall beautiful water-filled vase centerpieces holding sprays of silver wire on a mirrored tray with crystal candle holders. In our wildest dreams, we couldn't have envisioned such beautiful centerpieces. And then to top it off, the team also designed bouquets without flowers too! My bouquet was comprised of all metals and hanging crystals in the rounded shape of a bouquet and the bridesmaids carried long beautiful sprays of silver wire. It could not have been more perfectly NYE-themed and unique --- THANK YOU CARL ALAN!

Carl Alan Floral was beyond amazing! Vito and the team really surpassed what I hoped the wedding would look like. When I saw the room for the first time, I was in awe! The bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages were divine. We're still getting compliments. If I could live in that...

Working with Vito and everyone at Carl Alan Floral Designs was a complete pleasure. They were highly recommended by our venue as the "go to" florist because of their ability to work within one's budget and beautiful floral arrangements. From the beginning I told Vito that our... Read More flower budget was quite small and he was still able to provide us with everything I asked for and more. We got SO many compliments on our flowers and were told by so many guests how tasteful and classic our flowers were. Vito and his staff NEVER pushed us to go beyond our budget and truly worked with us. They were able to add some last minute arrangements and everything turned out beautifully. I cannot recommend Vito and Carl Alan Floral Designs enough! Katrina, their office manager, was excellent as well and very responsive. She was able to send me information quickly and resolve any issues we had. Highly recommend!

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.
