Working with Lake Harriet Florist was an exceptional experience. Lesley helped me work through my vision for my wedding flowers and gave me many options and suggestions, even creating mock-ups and sending me pictures. She was very fast to respond to my questions and helped me... Read More easily stay within my budget. I decided to order centerpieces and alter/aisle decor much later on in the planning process, and Lesley worked with me to create ones I loved. The flowers and centerpieces were beautiful, and everything was delivered and set up perfectly. One of my very memorable moments before my wedding is going into the reception hall and seeing the room set up with all the centerpieces and cake flowers. Everything was perfect and beautiful. The execution and craftsmanship of each bouquet, boutonniere, corsage and centerpiece was beyond what I could have hoped for. This team has a talent for attention to detail and they put so much thought into assembling each piece. I would highly recommend Lake Harriet Florist.


Awesome Quality and Awesome Service!

I looked for and had consultations with a few florists before I met with Lesley from Lake Harriet Florist and always felt like my ideas were not being heard. Many of the people that I met with told me that I could not get what I wanted within my budget, and basically changed my... Read More whole plan for what they thought was better. I knew what I wanted and did not enjoy being made to feel like an ignorant child. BUT thank goodness for Lesley and Lake Harriet Florist! When I met with her, not only were my ideas heard, but she had so many creative ideas to expand on what I told her my vision was. I wanted orchids and knew they were a bit more expensive, but didn't want to spend a ridiculous amount on flowers. Lesley had great ideas on how to incorporate beautiful orchids with other flowers that would look great and balance well. On the day of the wedding my flowers were more spectacular than I had even envisioned! For all you brides, you know how hard that can be :) My bouquet was a fabulous cascading mix of 3 different kinds of orchids, roses, lilies, and mums. I won't give all of the details, but just know that Lake Harriet Florist not only met, but exceeded all of my expectations in service, quality, and value!


Beautiful!

Leslie from Lake Harriet Florist is wonderful! I had a very specific vision for my wedding flowers, but it was all in my head and I couldn't find any photographs that lined up with that vision. Leslie was patient and very flexible. She "got" my vision from the beginning and was... Read More willing to work with it. The bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and other arrangements were exactly what I had envisioned, and they held up quite nicely throughout the day. Thank you Leslie and Lake Harriet Florist!

I first saw Lake Harriet Florist's work at another wedding for a friend of mine. Then, a year later it was my turn to get married and I chose Lake Harriet Florist too and I couldn't have been happier. My wedding was very different from my friend's wedding, but Lesley... Read More listened to what I wanted and had some great ideas of her own which I loved and she totally nailed my vision. Actually...what Lake Harriet Florist did was BETTER than what I had in my mind what everything would like. They even put a cute little charm on my handle as my "something blue". It was such a nice touch that was unexpected. I've already recommended Lake Harriet Florist to another friend of mine getting married July 2017 because they were so amazing to work with.

Lake Harriet Florist came as a recommendation from our venue (The Fountain Room) – and wow, what a recommendation! They designed centerpieces that would inspire brides to be, as if they were direct from a magazine. We planned our wedding from afar, and worked with Lesley and... Read More staff remotely. From only a few Pinterest pictures and a couple phone calls, they took a dream and made it perfect! Our centerpieces featured large gorgeous candelabras, with stunning floral arrangements. Even better, guests were able to detach the large arrangements and bring them home. My bouquet was equally as beautiful. I loved large round bouquets and this did not disappoint. It was sturdy and held its glamour all night. We know our Moms will be preserving their corsages, because like everything, they loved them and couldn’t stop remarking about their beauty. But Lake Harriet did not top there – their attention to detail, ability to have two delivery locations, and the staff’s creativity, passion, care, and kind attitudes are what really made the night! Thank you for adding beauty, class, and glamour that is unmatchable!

Lake Harriet Florist was so amazing to work with. We were originally booked with another florist, but we hadn't received much communication from them so a month before the wedding we reach out to them and they had all the wrong contact information and the bid they had on file... Read More wasn't at all what we had initially signed off on. In a panic, we called Lake Harriet Florist just to see what our options were and my daughter (the bride) and I were so impressed...so much so that we cancelled our plans with the previous florist and moved forward with Lake Harriet Florist. Their customer service was incredible - they always answered my emails and phone calls promptly and were always friendly. They clearly love what they do and it shows because the wedding flowers were incredible. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful they were. We already have them booked for our other daughter's wedding later in 2017!

Leslie and the Lake Harriet Florist team were absolutely amazing to work with!

Coming in, I didn't have an exact idea of what I wanted... Read More so I talked with Leslie about the style/feel of our wedding and our colors -- summer wedding with a rustic bohemian/earthy feel. I didn't have any types of specific flowers I wanted except I knew I wanted succulents in the bridal bouquet and in the groom's boutonniere.

The flowers looked amazing, both in person and in pictures and were incredibly unique and perfectly captured the spirit and personality of our wedding. Can't thank Leslie and Lake Harriet Florist enough for all their help!
