Lake Harriet Florist designed such a lovely wedding for my daughter. We loved that Lesley and her team "got" the big picture and then thought of so many more details that made my daughter's wedding truly personalized and unbelievably special. It really put our minds at ease... Read More being able to rent everything like the Chuppah and centerpiece containers. They came and assembled and styled everything which truly took our breath away with just how magical everything looked. In addition to that, the flowers were designed to separate from their containers easily so that we could take them home to use for our hosted brunch the next morning. We then later donated the flowers and they were still fresh and looked gorgeous days later and after being moved around a lot. In a nutshell, Lake Harriet Florist really went above and beyond for us...much more than you would think a typical florist would. When it's time for my other daughter to get married, we will definitely be using Lake Harriet Florist again.

Hiring Lake Harriet Florist was the absolute best decision we made in wedding planning. Lesley is the most fun, bubbly, creative person and she truly made our dreams come to life. We have received compliment after compliment about how beautiful our flowers were at our wedding.... Read More Every single flower, color, arrangement was absolutely perfect. There is nothing I would have changed. Lesley came to our venue and set everything herself to make sure everything was done right. We miss wedding planning because we miss meetings with Lesley! I would 100% recommend Lake Harriet to anyone looking for a unique and breathtaking floral experience for their wedding.

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!

Loved the flowers and decorations Lesley put together. It was exactly what I wanted. Had a simple vintage theme and she kept within that theme very well.

Super sad and disappointed with how our flowers turned out. I cringe when watching our wedding video with flower close ups :( It might have bit us in the the butt that we tried to be simple and 'hands off' with flowers but I don't think we were on the same page for our vision... Read More at all. Our flowers were delivered 2.5 hours before the ceremony and boutonnieres and half of the bridesmaids flowers were wilted by the ceremony (even in water). I will say, Lake Harriet Florist partially made up for our sadness with pretty lush green centerpieces at our reception.

I felt that Lake Harriet Florist was a bit disorganized. Although very friendly and meant well, I would not purchase florals through here again for that reason.

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!
