I wish I could give a review that included her work, but unfortunately I was unable to actually get an appointment. I contacted Carrie in March and she responded a week or so later saying she was out of the country and would contact me when she...
returned. She did not. I then contacted her two weeks ago to try to get an appointment for when I was in the area, and received no response. The other reviews and the work online looked so lovely and I wanted to meet her so much. Unfortunately, given the lack of response makes me nervous to even try again or trust to work with someone like this who I can't count on being responsive.

What Carrie delivered was absolutely showstopping! People talked about our flowers all day. They were bright, bold, and unlike anything I've ever seen. She used flowers I'd never heard of to make stunning combinations that perfectly complemented the spiky, funky look of cactus. She brought extra flowers, airplants, and greens with her day-of to add flourishes to any undecorated areas that just tied everything together. When I had to leave after our wedding weekend to go back to work, I genuinely cried as I "said goodbye" to the centerpieces/bouquets that we had to leave at my parent's house.

Carrie was absolutely sensational. She was the only florist I interviewed for our wedding and from the moment we met, I knew she could execute not only the flowers but the linens, chargers, glassware rentals, and candles for our wedding.
oleheartedly believe that Carrie is a steal. She delivers a superior final product over other florists who are more expensive than she is. She works with local and sustainable growers to obtain flowers and has a great breadth of portfolio. When we hired her, I knew we were going to get an event that was unique to the two of us.
Carrie truly listened to exactly how we saw the day going and we could not have been happier. She even delivered a small vase of flowers to our house the next day that she didn't get a chance to incorporate into the wedding day. She had remembered from an earlier meeting that I loved them and went the extra mile to deliver.
As an interior designer, I am VERY particular and picky when it comes to color combinations and the feel of the space. You will not be disappointed if you hire Carrie. She listens, communicates well, is very detail oriented and worked with our other vendors and day of coordinator seamlessly.

Carrie not only understood my vision - but she was excited about executing it! She sourced blue and white reproductions from all over and even came up with really novel ideas on how to integrate the blue in white throughout the reception. Most interestingly, she filled tall glass vases with blue and white ceramic balls she found to incorporate the blue and white into the taller arrangements. Put simply, Carrie is obviously a talented florist but she is also extremely creative and is always thinking of new, fun ideas.

I learned over the wedding process that it is important to "click" with your vendors. After all, you do communicate with them a lot! Carrie was always upbeat, happy, and enthusiastic. I also trusted her and her opinion. She was honest with me about everything and led me in the right direction on flowers and table linens when I was feeling confused. I am so lucky that I got to work with her! I would recommend her to anyone in search of a florist.

She was truly great to work with and i would recommend her to any future bride!

ativity, the options and ideas that she presented; all classy, some very chic and European and some simply traditional and divine. We couldn't be happier with how this turned out!
The wedding was gorgeous, much to her hard work, love and passion for her craft and understanding what would work for us. She made the day effortless for me, I was able to enjoy 'just being a bride' and receiving the compliments on her amazing work. I would use her again and we already have a party lined up where she will be doing all the flowers!

Carrie Wilcox has incredible knowledge and industry background that was such a help to me planning our wedding. Her color sense was exceptional. She matched the fabric I was using in my brides maids dresses and the table clothes at the recep...
tion. She was familiar with the seasonal flowers and what would be blooming and what would be "natural" looking for the setting outside and what would last the longest...all those important qualities for planning and event. She was teaching me all this as we were going through the process and I now appreciate that! When it came to the actual day and the arrangements, they were stunning! he compliments flowed ...from everyone! my bridal bouquet was a showstopper. The brides maids were equally as stunning. The photographer took as many shots of the flowers as they did of the bridal party! The colors and textures were so interesting. Each bouquet was so fresh and lasted the entire day and into the evening. I always look at the Knot and Pinterest and I have never seen any as unique as Carries's designs. When I think back on the day, I will always "see" the flower arrangements in my head! they were such an amazing addition to the day. I would highly reccommend her to anyone who wants to highlight flowers at their wedding or event. Carrie loves flowers and it shows through!

I contacted Carrie based on a conversation I had with a friend who had just got married and used her as her florist. I knew that I didn't have a lot to spend, but wasn't sure exactly how much at first, so when I met with Carrie I told her my vi...
sion and brought ideas and lots of photos and told her I had a budget but to show me what she would do with what I explained and then we would work from there. She provided me with a "working" proposal a few weeks later and we went back and forth all summer making changes to make sure it was what I was envisioning. My mom is into flowers and plants big time, so I met with Carrie another time closer to my wedding and brought my mom along so the two of them could talk flowers and you would've thought they were best friends by the end of the night! Carrie is super easy going, fun, and really listens to what you want. I said I wanted something a little different for the guys' boutonnieres, not the standard rose, and when she delivered them on the day of my wedding, they were absolutely perfect & incorporated my favorite flower.
She used dahlias she grew in her own garden at home in my bouquet which we absolutely gorgeous & I was so honored that she would give them up for me! She also spent a lot of time and attention to detail at our venue. Our ceremony was outside, but short, so I didn't want to put flowers out there since it was beautifully decorated by the venue and guests wouldn't be looking at them anyway. She tied tulle to the chairs in little bows along the walkway and then put petals in the fountain that was behind us during the ceremony, which everyone loved! Even the staff at our venue said they had not seen that before and it looked lovely.
Overall, the flowers in general were beautiful and perfect and fit in with our wedding amazingly. Carrie's attention to detail and going the extra step to make sure that no little thing was left out or out of place shows how much she cares for her clients. I really feel like I've gained a friend by hiring Carrie, as I'm sure if another event comes where I need a lot of flowers, or even just a few, I am going to call Carrie because I know she will get the job done above and beyond expectations.

d boutonnieres were on point. She created these beautiful head pieces for my nieces who were my flower girls that were precious.

I would recommend Carrie Wilcox Floral Design to all.
