y phone and sometimes her voicemail is full but if you are persistent she will make it worth your while. Not only does she have a wide variety of floral accessories but she has a whole inventory of other wedding equipment you may need. She has ring bearer pillows, unity candles and card boxes that she will let you use for the big day as part of her service. Another great part of her service is that she makes mock bouquets out of fake flowers that she will model for your bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids’ bouquet. I came to her originally having a December wedding and with COVID we had to push back our wedding to July after we had picked out all of our dresses and Esther reassured me that the flowers would transform the day into a beautiful summer wedding. She created amazing bouquets, boutonnières, a mix of high and low centerpieces, a beautiful garland for across the head table and she surprised me with a floral arch around my husband and I at the head table. Not to mention her prices cannot be beat. She did all of that for a price that was a little more than half of what I was quoted at other places for just bouquets, boutonnières and centerpieces. She is a definite must have as a vendor.

My baker did a fantastic job, but the cake looked awful with no flowers on it at all. The bouquets and reception centerpieces were beautiful, but I was quite disappointed with these mistakes.

sible to get ahold of and there’s a serious lack of communication on her part. I spent all of my summer calling her to set up a meeting. Her voicemail is always full and she does not return phone calls. The very few times I was able to get ahold of her, she was very short and rude to me on the phone. I was more picky about my flowers- I had a clear vision in mind of what I wanted. The end result was similar, but not exactly what I wanted and asked for. I asked for specific candles that I liked to be on the tables, but Esther wanted to use different candles and when I got to the reception it was the candles she wanted. Similarly, I had asked for a specific flower to be taken out of the bouquets that I did not like. On the day of my wedding, Esther put in the flowers I had previously asked to be taken out of the bouquets. Esther is challenging to work with. She has a very specific idea in her head of what she thinks looks good. If you are a low key bride and don’t have specifics in mind, then Esther would be a good fit for you. I had more specific ideas in mind of what I wanted and struggled with Esther to have her follow my ideas. She often became combative with me when she did not like my ideas and I pushed for them. I personally would not recommend Esther to others after my experience with her. She was stressful to work with and I often felt like my ideas/wants were not important to her. She is highly disorganized and over books herself. We went over the “day of” list many times of everything I needed. I was still short boutineers and corsages for my grandparents on the day of. I personally did not like the unknown feeling of not knowing what my flowers would look like on the day of my wedding.

I asked for specific flower girl bouquets which she agreed she could do and ended up with bouquets that looked nothing like it.

the flower girl as we talked about, and the arch flowers and my bouquet did not look like the photos we had gone over. They still were beautiful but not as requested. Also, we had several appointments and it was as if she forgot what she was going to change on the bouquet for the next time, since the trial bouquet was the same at both appointments even though she had said she was going to make the changes we talked about. Also, when I would ask questions or if I wanted to change things she seemed agitated and upset. One of the best things about her is that she rents you lots of things she has in storage like charger plates, table numbers, easels, etc. at almost no charge. She worked with my budget really well and we got a lot of compliments. Overall I would recommend her as long as you are okay with some of the details not going as you wanted them.

tion. Please read this whole review because I have a lot of great things to tell you about her! I will be honest - she is "old school" (and will identify herself as such) in that she really only communicates by phone or in-person meetings. She is not someone you can text or email quick updates to, nor does she have a polished web presence. That said, she has been in the wedding decorating business for more than 30 years and it is obvious that she is a master at her craft. She was able to take my description of how I wanted our wedding to look and feel, incorporated some photo inspiration (that I printed off for her!), and ran with it. We had three in-person meetings over the course of the four months prior to the wedding to finalize flower and decorations. She creates silk bouquets to be able to show you exactly what your finished bridal and bridesmaid bouquets will look like, which I really appreciated. I was able to say "yes I like this color" or "no I don't like this flower" and she added and removed silk flowers from the bouquet right in that meeting until we had it perfect. She also is super knowledgeable and realistic and was able to make several suggestions based on my vision to better bring my decor to life. She charges one flat fee for decor and flowers that we negotiated in our first meeting and that was INCREDIBLY reasonable and by far the best price I found anywhere. You don't get upcharged throughout the process as you figure out your decor needs. And she has a massive warehouse with every vase, table number, accent piece, etc, you could EVER need. I went in with the mindset that I am NOT an artist or decorator and I wanted an expert to develop our wedding look for me so that I didn't have to stress about details I'm not familiar with. If you have a similar mindset, I promise you won't regret working with Esther! I can't post pictures with reviews on the Knot, so I will post pictures on Google reviews if you would like to look Esther up there.

When you meet with Esther, she asks a lot of questions to gauge your interest in the décor ideas she has. If you’re unsure about something she suggests, be honest if it’s not your style or trust Esther’s gut because I guarantee you that you’ll love it. She has so much décor and really good ideas. She’s very reasonable in terms of cost and when you give her your budget, she does work within that versus other contractors who might take a budget as a “suggestion.”
I must admit that Esther is very difficult to get in touch with over the phone – when you meet with her, schedule your next meeting (if necessary) right then and there. We knew going in to working with her that she would be difficult to get in touch with, therefore we weren’t worried. I do believe that if you don’t know this before working with her, you may incur a significant amount of stress. As I mentioned, we knew that she might be hard to get in touch with but most importantly, we received nothing but glowing reviews of the work she produces.
Esther is an amazing artist and a very lovely person – she was an absolute delight to work with and she made our wedding day more beautiful that I could have imagined. I absolutely recommend working with Esther – you will not be disappointed.

Esther and her crew worked so hard and I can't thank them enough for all that they did to make my day memorable.

Esther's work is unparalleled. Not only does she provide gorgeous florals, but it almost felt like she was a coordinator too. We had more meetings with Esther than I ever would have imagined we would have with our florist (four in total!) and s...
he helped us achieve our overall vision for decor and flowers.
In addition to providing flowers, Esther set up our ceremony and reception spaces, which included arranging: escort cards, cupcakes, framed vintage parent photos, framed signage, and our own personal antiques plus the rentals SHE provided, which included vintage suitcases for cards/gifts and all of the cupcake stands.
In all honesty, if you are a Type A person such as myself, it can at times be challenging to work with Esther. She is a free spirit and she "goes with the flow" but she is an artist. Make sure you clearly articulate your desires and the things that are most important to you, and she will help your vision come to life in a way that is more beautiful than you could have hoped. Our guests were all amazed with our flowers and decor, and no one ever would have guessed that we’d been working on a fairly tight floral budget.
If we had to do it all over, we would hands down choose Esther as our florist again. She's the best.

I loved working with Esther. Her style may be unconventional but I was thrilled with the end result. My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous. I love how she re-used flowers from the church to create the head table centerpieces. She created prototype...
bouquets with silk flowers, and I really appreciated being able to "see" what the look of the wedding was going to be. My only complaint is that the bridesmaids' bouquets didn't have the extra punch of color I was expecting, but there are only so many things one bride can control. Very reasonable given the amount and quality of flowers we received.

I just had my wedding on April 18th, 2015 and was so amazed by the flowers and hard work Esther put into my wedding. At the beginning, after reading all of the reviews and being a control freak I was nervous about that lack of communication th...
at a few spoke about while working with Esther. My wedding coordinator at our venue ensured us that Esther was the way to go and that we would be pleased with the final result. I was able to make my appointment with Esther and had 5 different meetings with her throughout the planning process. I found it easiest to make my next appointment before I left to avoid having to play phone tag.
Overall my flowers and decor turned out more amazing that I could have imagine. Esther hung a curtain to cover a back wall for me, provided trays for my place cards along with my card box. She assembled and decorated a pipe and drape behind where our ceremony was and also was there right before I walked down the aisle to make sure everything looked perfect. The amount of thought and care she personally put into my wedding is something that you will not find anywhere else. I'd recommend her to anyone and already have a friend using her for their upcoming wedding.

at ease. Sure she does amazing work-but nothing you can't find elsewhere, if you just look around. I spent 4 months calling her every day on my way home from work and her mailbox was full 99% of the attempts. If you do make the choice to go with her, never leave your first meeting without having another on the books. Then for the third meeting, which may not happen (like for one of my friends) you will have to plan your entire wedding in the 30 minutes you have with her and if you forgot anything--too bad she will not speak with you any longer. She won't tell you any of this but will just leave you hanging, may listen to a voicemail if you got lucky enough to leave one but will not return your calls. It is not just me with this problem, I gave all of my other vendors a 5/5; I have three friends with weddings coming up and have Esther as their florist and two of them are in tears, two weeks before their wedding (one is about to be). I am laid back person and not a girly girl who had her wedding designed since 10 years old, I picked her because she was cheap and creative. This cost and quality didn't make a difference considering the amount of negative feelings I developed towards someone who is supposed to be a florist.

you to make sure you're on the same page, but if you're the type of person who needs to have control/final say on every flower that goes into a centerpiece, this might not be a fit for you.
I had a general vision, a big space, and a moderate budget to work with. Esther was able to pull it all together and create lovely arrangements that served as aisle runners for the ceremony as well as centerpieces for the reception. They were gorgeous and incorporated the colors, textures, and lights we talked about. She also provided candles, vases, chalkboards, and other accompanying pieces for the decor at what seemed like very little extra charge.
As far as communication with Esther, I have heard it can be hard to reach her, but I fortunately had a day of planner that knows her well. So I allowed most communication to be directly between her and Esther. When I showed up to the venue, I wasn't exactly sure what I expected to see, but it was fantastic! Everyone raved about the flowers and apparently were guessing that it cost 3 times higher than we actually paid for everything she provided :)

for our 1.3.14 winter wedding. She took my ideas and made them into something far beyond what I could imagine. We loved that she managed to do "winter" without a hint being christmas-y. Instead, our flowers were glamorous, white, champagne gold with a hint of sparkle so they looked like they were dusted with snow. They were incredible. Could not have asked for anything better. I highly recommend her!

work on making artificial copies of what would be at my wedding. My bridesmaid bouquets were one of a kind. I had a big, beautiful, cascading bridal bouquet. My centerpieces were talked about for weeks. Everything was beautiful. Esther goes above and beyond. She loaned me anything that wasn't a flower to use - candles, cake stand, glass bowls for a trail mix bar. I was able to rent out pew decorations. She even has someone who can make place cards for you. Everything was absolutely perfect! The only critique I have is that Esther is very hard to get a hold of. She is very busy, and is often working on projects or meeting with brides. Call her again and again….it will definitely be worth it!

of compliments on how beautiful the flowers and decorations were. It's also incredibly handy, since she has all kinds of vases and other decorations so you don't have to rent or buy them yourself.
