has done many weddings at The Essex and The Ponds, so was able to provide tons of helpful advice for our wedding weekend, which was much appreciated especially being from out of town and not having family with recent wedding experience. She provided floral decor for our Friday evening welcome BBQ, Saturday ceremony and reception, and Sunday farewell brunch, and everything was stunning. She perfectly captured our desires while adding her creativity and expertise to create the best arrangements. Each arrangement was unique and accented its space while maintaining a cohesive theme between our church ceremony, reception in the mountains, and participants. And the Friday BBQ flowers had their own, fun theme! Her recommendations and attention to detail were greatly appreciated, and it was so easy to communicate with her via phone and email. Alison and her team were such a big help in preparing our reception venue too - she was willing to set up our escort cards, menus, table numbers, and other decor, making our lives on the wedding day so much easier! They were extremely accommodating to our schedule and preferences - transporting our bouquets and boutonnieres to our getting-ready rooms at The Essex, moving pieces between our ceremony and reception venue, and even collecting arrangements late at night after our reception, freshening them up, and delivering them the next morning for our brunch. 10/10 would recommend Alison, you will be in the best hands!

Alison was phenomenal to work with, flexible, creative, and willing to give us advice. At one point in planning I had an idea that I thought would be great for our wedding, and I appreciated how Alison gave me her honest feedback about how that...
would impact our budget and other more affordable options. We had to re-work the budget about a month before the wedding due to an increased number of tables, and Alison was willing to work with me to cut some elements to be able to accommodate that, which I very much appreciated!
The venue looked amazing and the set up was very hassle free!

The flowers are expensive, but you are paying for Alison's expertise, skill, and creative eye, and it was worth every cent!
