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.
