FanTAStic Flowers!!

Reviewed on 12/08/2014 Micha H

I had such a wonderful experience here. Ruth Babcock, the owner, handled my wedding personally. She was so sweet and patient when we first sat down and went over everything I needed for my big day. She said flowers should never be something the bride stresses over. And I didn't... Read More have to! Everything was so beautiful, and she even special ordered flowers for me so I could have my dream of having dark purple flowers. They were so beautiful, they stayed alive and in vases in my house for the next four weeks after the wedding. I would recommend her to any bride who wants a beautiful, stress-free day.

Flowers and Event Planning

Ruth at Carol Lynn Originals and Events not only did the flowers for my wedding, but also did the day-of coordinating. Ruth was easy to talk to, detail oriented, and so friendly. She did exactly what we wanted, but also made sure we had not overlooked small details that... Read More brides may miss! She truly made our day run so smoothly! Ruth's flowers were also gorgeous! When looking for florist, I had a hard time finding someone who I felt truly understood exactly what I wanted. Ruth used pictures, and my own pin board on pinterst to help make sure she was giving me what I wanted. She was also very considerate of my budget and did not pressure me to add extra things that I did not feel were necessary. When the flowers arrived, I was beyond impressed by how well they turned out. I LOVED my flowers and got so many compliments!

So Beautiful!

I came across Carol Lynn Originals at a bridal show in Lexington, KY. Immediately afterwards, we set up a time to meet with Ruth. Her meetings are so creative! We brought pictures of example bouquets and she immediately got to work bringing up pictures all across her computer... Read More monitor so that we could begin piecing together the flowers we imagined. The best part - she saved the images to a Pinterest board for us to access and review when we were home and with a clear mind. She was honest about what would and would not look good (or smell good!) and made our budget work for us. Our photographers, families, and friends were gushing about the bouquets and boutonnieres! Absolutely beautiful.

Ruth was awesome in helping me make my vision come to life with my bouquet and all the floral decor. Just as importantly she also helped me stay within my budget. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! She brought all the bouquets straight up to the bridal suite and she... Read More showed me how to carry my bouquet correctly and how to hold it for the best angles in photos (it was a rather large cascade bouquet).

I went into our meetings only knowing that I wanted succulents in my bouquet but I didn't have any ideas on the overall look. Ruth took what I liked and what I wanted and made something stunning. We also had a different style for the centerpieces and she hit the ground running... Read More with my ideas and brought it to life. The day of the wedding Ruth was setting up and we had to make some last minute changes due to rain and while I was having a "moment" she was there helping me through it and making sure that I didn't compromise what I wanted for what was functional for the space. She was great to work with and I would recommend her to everyone I know!

Carol Lynn Originals and Events provided the flowers for my wedding ceremony and reception. We had about 350 guests in attendance, so they had their hands full! The flowers were stunning and were done perfectly to match the simple, elegant style I wanted for my whole wedding... Read More day! When first meeting with the florist, I knew very little about flowers, but I did know what "look" I wanted for my big day. By telling them I wanted a classic and elegant look, they were able to pull together the perfect flowers for my tastes and getting to know me. Also, they knew my budget and could help me steer away from any flowers that may have been too high for my budget. Then, once the wedding day arrived, the took care of everything! The bridesmaids and bride bouquet were BEAUTIFUL!!! Everything was at the church and I didn't have to worry about anything when it came to my florist. Then, I arrived at the reception with 35 tables of amazing arrangements. Carol Lynn Events has the special touch and they are just wonderful to work with! Thanks for everything you did to help make my wedding day perfect and a day I'll never forget! Love you all!!!

They are the BEST!!

Ruth with Carol Lynn Originals was great!! From our first meeting to discuss the flowers for my wedding she understood what my vision was. She not only did the flowers for my wedding, but she also did the flowers for my bridal shower. From simple to ellaborate, Ruth's work... Read More sticks out as the best. Her work is amazing, and I plan to use her again for both big and small occassions.

Flowers were Stunning!

Ruth was so wonderful throughout the entire planning process and I was so happy with all of the floral arrangements. We were planning our wedding from Virginia, but Ruth worked with us over the phone and over pinterest to plan out our vision. My husband and I had different ideas...

The flowers were all a wonderful quality and everything from table arrangements to bouquets matched the vision for our wedding perfectly.

We bought all of our bouquets, memory flowers and boutonniers through Ruth for dirt cheap. She will ask you questions about your dress or your vision and wedding colors. From there she will show you the specific flowers you requested and various shades of the color. She works... Read More with you to give you an idea of how big the bouquets will be and the necessary flower type to make the bouquets look their best. I went with white roses and calla lillies for my bouquet and paid only 65 for an 8-10'' diameter bouquet. We couldn't have been more pleased with the final outcome!!
