I have to admit, I struggled with finding the right florist for our wedding for months. Everyone I contacted wasn’t willing to work within our budget and really made the wedding planning process such a drag. It wasn’t until a few months before my wedding that I found Laura Clare... Read More through one of my co-workers recommendation. I immediately reached out and set up a meeting in her Bernardsville shop. Laura was so warm and bubbly – she was such a breath of fresh air and truly such a pleasure to work with. She has such an enthusiasm and talent for floral design. I brought her many photos from Pinterest (probably too many!) for brainstorming floral ideas and every idea I had she topped with a better one! Her suggestions were great – she brought my vision to life. She even had great suggestions for décor elements like chairs and candles. She truly understood the vibe I was going for and made the entire planning process so seamless and most importantly, fun! Laura made our ceremony unforgettable. She delivered the most stunning flowers and decor I have ever seen – she truly succeeded above and beyond my expectations! She was even lovely at answering my many emails (often changing flowers or coming up with different ideas closer to our date) and made sure the flowers for the day were exactly what we had imagined. I highly recommend Laura Clare!

We got married in May 2017, and chose Laura Clare as our florist. Laura was such a pleasure to work with and her floral designs are absolutely beautiful. When we first met Laura, she spent so much time with us discussing our vision for the wedding and our likes and dislikes. We... Read More spoke to several other florists and Laura was the most patient and reasonably priced. She cared about our budget and tried to find ways to help us save some money. We ordered bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, flowers for the cocktail hour tables, flowers down the aisle for the ceremony and a Chuppah. She was so understanding when we changed our minds a few times as it got closer to the wedding. We met with her again about a month before the wedding so that she could review with us everything we ordered and show us a mock up of the centerpieces. We had sent her a picture of something we liked and Laura made it so much more beautiful. Laura spent over two hours with us that day going through all of the details in preparation for the wedding. When we saw all of the flower arrangements and the Chuppah the day of the wedding, we were amazed. They were absolutely gorgeous, better than we ever imagined - she far surpassed our expectations and wishes. Our guests raved about the floral designs as well. We loved working with Laura and recommend her highly.

Better late than never! I was married April 29, 2016 at the Stone House at Stirling Ridge. I was recommended Laura Clare by my venue and told she was reasonably priced. Unfortunately, she was not as reasonably priced as I hoped, BUT she delivered beautiful work for me the day of... Read More the wedding. I changed my mind many times, and at times I did not think it would work; however, Laura took the time to sit down with me (for as long as it took) and figure out exactly how it COULD work. I had a very strict budget and was unable to budge. After switching my mind from baby's breath (she warned me they would smell in mass quantities) to flowering branches, it was extremely stressful because a new quote I was given was double my original price. A couple months before the wedding, I set up a meeting with her and she sat down with me and thought of a million different ways I could still get what I wanted. At that point, I let her expertise take over. When I tell you that my centerpieces were everything I wanted them to be, they were. They were MASSIVELY full white cherry blossoms with hanging candles. They were stunning and because it was the end of the cherry blossom season, she was able to get more than expected. She even sent me pictures of the shipments to keep me in the loop. Ultimately, I couldn't have been happier with Laura and the quality of her work. My husband, who was skeptical at the time due to the constant back and forth, was blown away, stating they were absolutely breathtaking.

I found Laura through Instagram after admiring her work through previous weddings at my venue - and she gave me an "Instagram-worthy" wedding and beyond (on a reasonable budget, too!). I worked directly with Laura to decorate the church, reception venue as well as create my... Read More bouquets. She was extremely flexible and patient throughout the entire process as my theme and ideas evolved. One last minute add that Laura knocked out of the park was our sweetheart table which she calls - table flambe! It's an installation of candles and flowers that go over your table. People are still raving about it. Laura and team were also great when it came to setting up decorations I already had - she also transferred decorations from the church to the venue. I also loved what she did with the bouquets - very pretty and complimented my overall bridal look. Laura has an incredible eye for making your wedding unique, memorable and elegant. Our big day wouldn't have been possible without her vision and the hardwork of her dedicated team.

Overall my flowers were beautiful at my wedding but working with this vendor was challenging, at the time I did not find the pricing expensive but looking forward to my wedding day, I think it was. If they were not the preferred vendor for my venue, I most likely would have... Read More hired someone else just because I felt from a customer service standpoint, improvements are needed. While Laura was really great in willing to work with me that I was not the bride who was going to spend thousands of dollars on flowers & let me purchase my own containers, vases, etc. to save on cost, it took a while for me to get a proposal, which wasn't quite right and it took several times to get it right at which I still didn't feel quite satisfied but I had to trust it would work out. On the day of my wedding, I had an extra boutonniere (which i am not sure if I paid for that) and my flower girl flowers couldn't be found by my venue so I am not sure if they got delivered. While my bridal bouquet was beautiful, it was disappointing for the amount it cost. At the end of the day, my flowers were beautiful, I think the earthy feeling I was going for was captured, but it was expensive for what I actually received and as a customer, I just needed to "feel the love" more.
