I sincerely apologize for the late review as our wedding was in December and I'm clearly behind! However, I love love love Ashley and the folks at NOLA Flora so much. They made our wedding flowers to the T of what I had in mind. I was completely obnoxious and had so many... Read More ridiculous demands because I knew exactly what I wanted, but Ashley and her crew truly pulled together an unbelievably gorgeous array of flowers and made my Christmas wedding dream come true. My favorite part was our huge flocked Christmas tree, and I cannot tell you how many people raved over it and all of our centerpieces and bridal bouquets. They know their stuff to the n-th degree (is that a word? Ha!) and I highly recommend this team of flower ninjas! I followed over 10 NOLA floral vendors on social media prior to choosing NOLA Flora just to make sure it was the right choice...and was it EVER! Ashley was super responsive, and for an OCD bride like myself, she exceeded my expectations. Thank you all so very much for all the GLAM you brought to our wedding.

I cannot say enough good things about NOLA Flora, and the same with my guests-- they raved about the floral arrangements!

My opinion is that flowers make a wedding. I interviewed four florists, and Ashley at Nola Flora just "got" me and my vision for our wedding.

I got very little assistance in the design of the flowers and overall concept. The flowers were so important to my mother and her flowers were the WORST! They were dying when they were delivered. Browning on the edges. My calla lily bouquet was also kind small and a little... Read More brown on the edges. I asked for crystals to be in the bouquet to match my colors (gold/champagne/blush) and there were brown stones in the bouquet. I got pomander balls for my junior bridesmaids, the flowers were falling off before we even made it in the venue (next door to the hotel were the flowers were delivered). Overall, the quality we received was poor, there was no unique vision brought by this vendor, and the colors and product did not match what I requested. This is the one vendor and one part of my wedding that I wish I could do over again.

I worked with Ashley and Nola Flora for months leading up to my wedding. I initially sent in an email detailing almost everything I was looking for in flowers. Within a few days, Ashley got back with me regarding my floral design proposal with great detail almost to the point... Read More where I could envision exactly what my flowers would look like the day of my wedding. She gave me some great suggestions along the way as well! I requested that my rosary that I received from my deceased grandmother be wrapped around my bouquet, however, the rosary ended up being forgotten at the store the day of the wedding. This was no biggy for me. My main concern was only that the rosary had not been misplaced. It wasn't! I contacted Ashley, she apologized, and told me she would mail the rosary back to me. That works for me! Aside from that, Ashley and her team were great and easy to work with. The bridal party flowers were delivered to me at the hotel, and the rest of the flowers were magically put in place at my ceremony and reception venues. What I can really appreciate is that I did not have to answer any phone calls from vendors asking questions the day of the wedding. Nola Flora had it under control which makes things real easy for the bride. I was given exactly what I was looking for when it comes to flowers. Some people say that there is so much going on at the wedding/reception that you don't have time to enjoy the decorations. Don't believe that! I stopped to look at everything. After all, you paid for it, you might as well stop and smell the roses! ;) So many compliments throughout the night (and days following the wedding) from guests about the flowers! Nola Flora, thank you for making my flower dreams come true.

My husband and I used Nola-Flora for our October 2014 wedding and Ashley surely made our big day exceptional! As a destination bride, planning a New Orleans wedding from afar may be a daunting task but this is not the case if you decide on Nola-Flora. From day one, Ashley was... Read More thoughtful, courteous, supportive and took the time to respond to our many inquiries via email within 24 hours. We planned the entire wedding via email/phone communication and not once did I feel we would be at a disadvantage for not being able to meet with Nola-Flora in person. Furthermore, Ashley understands budget and had no problem developing a floral plan that was friendly to our wedding budget for flowers while maintaining the grandeur desired by my husband and I. On the wedding day, we and our guests were in absolute awe of the perfection, attention to detail, beauty and personalized floral touches (mercury glass & candles) that made our wedding & ceremony so special. The entire event felt uniquely our own - especially down to the smallest detail of having fuschia-colored orchids in my bridal bouquet to match my fuschia pumps - and we owe that to how well Ashley and the Nola-Flora team expressed our vision through floral arrangements. In summary, Nola-Flora will go above & beyond to make your wedding day memorable, joyous, full of love and a truly spectacular experience. Ashley has the most remarkable professionalism, courtesy, eye for beauty & detail and is a floral master!
