This isn't one of those reviews where you feel obligated to say nice things. Lindsay is the BEST - creative, accommodating, reasonably priced, and so genuinely nice. The florals and brass candles we rented from Lindsay Rae transformed our bookstore venue from 'okay' during the day to STUNNING. Our bouquets were exactly (better!) as requested, complementary to each girl's dress, and delivered to the hotel (early!) looking fresh and beautiful. You guys. Hire Lindsay Rae Design. You're welcome.
Working with Lindsay was probably the best decision we made in planning our wedding. Lindsay was so kind and helpful from the start – she was able to answer all our questions, made great suggestions, and ultimately really understood exactly what we were looking for. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable with the plans and excited about our wedding flowers. Lindsay and I had several discussions about what we wanted for our wedding flowers, but the final product far surpassed what I could have imagined. It was so creative, unique and beautiful. Our flowers were the main decorative aspect of the wedding and I couldn’t imagine them being any better. Also, in terms of logistics, Lindsay was amazing. She made sure we had everything where and when we needed them on the day of the wedding, despite a snow storm! I have already passed Lindsay’s name on to friends who are engaged and would highly recommend anyone hiring Lindsay for their wedding.
I got married September 25th, 2016 in Montauk New York and I could not have walked down the aisle without this amazing florist! Lindsay is professional, pleasant, helpful, creative, talented, flexible, and all around amazing. She went over and above what I could have ever hoped for or imagined having in a florist. I can't recommend her enough. Lindsay met with me as many times as needed before hand to ensure I was comfortable and happy. All I had to do was create a pinterest board with my ideas and style and she took it from there. Working with Lindsay drastically reduced my stress levels and was one of the few things I didn't have to think about at all leading up to the day because I knew she would take care of everything beautifully, and she definitely did. Even the day of, she helped with other things besides flowers to ensure that our day went perfectly- she went way beyond a florist's job title to get what needed to be done, done. My flower crown, the place holders on the napkins, the aisle runners, the whimsical entry arrangements, beautiful arrangement on the wedding arch, etc. was all done with such taste all my guests wanted to take a piece home. :) As you can see, I am EXTREMELY happy with our choice to use Lindsay Rae Design and so thankful to have found her. Thank you Lindsay for all you did and making our day less stressful and the atmosphere so fitting, beautiful, and perfect.
Working with Lindsay was one of the nicest, easiest parts of the wedding planning process. From the very beginning, it was apparent that she understood my style and vision (and budget) so I felt totally comfortable just letting her run with her own great ideas! When the forecast became iffy, she also went out of her way to make sure we had a ceremony floral plan B. The final results were gorgeous, and we received so many compliments on the flowers. Lindsay is talented, positive and professional--I would recommend her work to another bride in a heartbeat!
Linsday has got to be hands on the best. I am a flower person. My partner and I are members of the Botanical Garden, we get fresh flowers almost weekly from a fancy shop nearby, and we both love to garden. So when it came to deciding on a florist, we had high expectations. Lindsay was the only person I contacted, after finding her through online images of a wedding she had done at my venue - and like all the reviews below, she exceeded my high expectations. I was probably one of the worst bridal communicators and planners - but she even came to the venue with me during the planning process to envision what we'd need and where, and sent along a sample day-of itinerary since I didn't have a coordinator to help me plan. The ceremonial garland she created provided a beautiful backup/Plan B option when it rained - and she had the foresight to design it that way. The tables were absolutely stunning, my mom was distracted from taking family pics bc she was so obsessed with examining how beautiful all of the bud and vase arrangements were. All of the guests afterward were crawling over one another to take the flowers home, and I had to bat them away from taking the vases too :) She is patient, friendly, has an amazing eye, got my taste SPOT ON.... I simply cannot recommend Lindsay highly enough.
Lindsay Rae is an incredible wedding planner and florist. Will and I met her about a year and change before our wedding day. Over that time, she sat with us in person, over the phone, and via email countless number of times. She listened to what we wanted. And when we asked her advice, it was always sound and coming from a place of experience. She never judged us. She never lost patience with us or our families. She delivered beautiful flowers on a tight budget. She was calm and determined the entire time and worked seamlessly with our vendors. Everyone on the team loved her -- and says they want to work with her again. About two weeks before our day, she sat us down and said, "The only thing left to worry about is if the day will run smoothly. And that's my job, so you can stop wondering: it will." And it absolutely did! We ENJOYED our wedding. We drank and ate and danced and hung with our friends and family. We were not stressed, mainly, because we had a friend we could rely on: Lindsay Rae.
Lindsay is the best. I had four flower proposals and from Lindsay's professional and beautiful layout of the proposal, I could tell that she was the right choice. She listened and understood my wants and her ultimate flower design was perfect. I could not be happier with how things came out. She created a beautiful flower arch, which I just adore. The bouquet was gorgeous. The centerpieces were exactly what I wanted. She also left little floral touches on everything and it was such a nice surprise to see the finished product. Also I originally thought I didn't want a boutonniere but the design she created was so awesome, I couldn't refuse. I still get compliments on it. She even stayed later than she had to to make my request for an outdoor ceremony on a rainy day work. She really went above and beyond and I can tell she really loves and is passionate about her work. I'm so happy she was by my aside along this crazy wedding planning process and on the day of the wedding. She was such a pleasure to work with and always accommodating to my needs and requests, I really couldn't recommend her more.
Lindsay is amazing! We met a couple of times to talk budget, ideas, and general aesthetics but I left it mostly in her (talented) hands. The results were more than I had hoped for and so incredibly tasteful and beautiful. I didn't have much of a floral budget but she managed to stay within it while providing professional and caring service. I can't recommend her enough! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her. Thank you Lindsay!
This girl is AMAZINGReviewed on 7/14/2015 Synthia L
Lindsay is the most incredible person and florist. She went above and beyond to make my wedding absolutely beautiful. Initially, she met with me to discuss my vision and totally understood what I wanted. I also gave her a really tight budget and she had no complaints. She worked within my means and absolutely exceeded all of my expectations! When I walked into the room, I was in shock. It was more beautiful than I could have imagined. Everything from the centerpieces to the simple little accents that adorned the space was breathtaking. I got so many compliments on how gorgeous the decor was and how incredibly "me" it was. This girl is a gem... seriously.. just hire her NOW.
I found Lindsay Rae Design through one of my bridesmaids. I was working and living in New York City, but my wedding was in Massachusetts. And she shrugged and was like "Yeah, not a problem". And that was with everything! Everything I asked for, every vision I had, it was always "Yes" as if I asked her if she liked being on the beach at sunset with a cocktail. Her collected and organized way of working made me feel like everything was under control, and I could breathe knowing I was in good hands. I created a pinterest board of my vision for flowers and decorations. She said tell me your budget and your vision, and we'll make it happen. There was never a hesitation of no you can't have that because of budget. We had a couple meetings. She said in one of them that she's always had a knack for understanding someone else's vision and that she loves making that happen for other people. And she's so insanely right. She picked up every nuance of what I envisioned and was able to take it a step further. The miracle work that she performed day off was like nothing I've ever seen. We couldn't be in the venue until the morning of, so that was Lindsay's only time to put it all together. The next thing I knew the entire venue was transformed. How she managed to do it long distance I'll never know. It was flawless, and better than I could have pictured. What I love about Lindsay is that you can see her passion for the work. And she creates things out of nothing. I saw her do it multiple times. She has an awesome aesthetic and a great eye. I actually could not have pulled off such a gorgeous event without her. Anytime a friend of mine announces they're getting married I immediately pipe in LINDSAY RAE! I would highly recommend Lindsay Rae Designs to any bride or party thrower :D
Gorgeous wedding flowersReviewed on 9/28/2014 Jessica D
We are so happy with Lindsay's work on our wedding. She's a really thoughtful designer, and understood what we wanted based on only a few vague reference photos we put together - except she made it even better than our reference photos! She's very responsible and laid back which was valuable for us during the planning process. She worked closely with us to maintain our budget from the beginning. Her flowers and succulents were so beautifully arranged and displayed and added a wonderful casual elegance to the evening. I think between myself and the guests, we may have taken every arrangement home at the end of the night. I wish I had another excuse to hire Lindsay again soon!
I couldn't recommend Lindsay more highly!Reviewed on 9/24/2014
Lindsay did the flowers for my wedding last fall, and she did an unbelievable job! She made the flowers for my wedding look more beautiful than I could have even imagined! On top of that she is such a wonderful person to work with, AND she kept me within my budget. If there is one florist to hire, Lindsay is the one! I couldn't recommend her more highly!
Gorgeous Design!Reviewed on 9/23/2014 Alicia C
One of the things I loved about Lindsay's designs was how you could tell that she put the bouquets with care and thought. I told Lindsay that I wanted flowers but was working on a budget. She was super helpful in working within my budget and checking in with me. I had no idea what I wanted for flowers but showed her a few pictures and told her that I trusted her design. All of my friends couldn't believe I didn't know what the bouquets were going to look like but I told them that I trusted her. And they were gorgeous! Everyone kept gushing over the flowers and a friend of mine who just got engaged asked who did my flowers. I emailed her Lindsay's information and told her that she will love whatever Lindsay does. Now I just need to have another party where I can call upon Lindsay's gorgeous design for everyone can see them.
We loved Lindsay!Reviewed on 9/23/2014 Maggie M
I am really not a flowers person, and would never expect that I would LOVE a florist, but Lindsay's designs were amazing! She created beautiful bouquets for myself, my girls, the MOB/MOG, and boutonnieres for all the men in exactly the style I wanted, exactly the colors I wanted, after only seeing a few photos of what I liked. She picked up on my taste level so accurately and gave us such high quality designs that were well within our budget. Lindsay also was very amenable to change when our original venue closed soon before the wedding and we were forced to completely re-plan with very little budget. She worked within our new constraints to make sure we had beautiful and reasonable arrangements for our new venue, and I am so grateful for her gorgeous work. I have been giving her information to all of my friends who are engaged, and I can't recommend her enough.
Wonderful, totally saved the day!Reviewed on 9/21/2014 Nicole
I had done the majority of our flowers with a friend, but I wanted to hire a professional for the bouquet, boutineers, and corsages. The two original florists I had been speaking to, and had asked for quotes, just stopped responding to me about 1 week before my wedding date. I reached out to every recommendation I received for the last minute help and Lindsay graciously accepted the last minute job and also worked with me to meet my budget. She even managed to squeeze in a quick meeting to review photos of budget friendly options. She delivered beautiful bouquets on time and I would have honestly been lost having to do those on my own!
