Destiny at Poppy & Mint is absolutely incredible! After our first chat, I felt like I had rambled and was all over the place about what I liked and was envisioning, but then she sent me the first proposal, and I was amazed! She summed up and captured everything I wanted for our... Read More day. She completely got my vision right away! Destiny was friendly and responsive and very kind as I changed and updated the proposal in the months leading up to the wedding. As for the execution and day of… WOW is all I can say. Destiny went over the top and way beyond our wildest expectations, from the huge, gorgeous bouquets, to the beautiful archway in our ceremony venue, to each unique, awesome centerpiece. Our guests literally haven’t stopped talking about how they were the coolest centerpieces they had ever seen :) All this at such a reasonable price, she is happy to work within your budget. Thank you, thank you, thank you Destiny!!

Such amazing work! I'll never forget the moment when I was kneeling on the altar and saw the beautiful church floral arrangements for the first time. Holy cow - what a way with color and design Destiny has. As a designer myself, and someone very picky about color palettes and... Read More arrangements, Destiny knocked it out of the park. She handled everything on the day of our wedding flawlessly, between our church and our reception venue.

I planned a destination wedding in new Orleans. I live in Florida. We only went to new Orleans one time to pick out the venue. Destiny was amazing- to say the least.

I live out of town, so I was planning my wedding remotely. I got a few references from the venue or through word of mouth. But...I had mentally selected Poppy & Mint before I even knew what the price was based on the work featured on the website. I was certain Destiny, the... Read More owner, could deliver exactly what I wanted without even talking to her, but nonetheless I had to do my due diligence in selecting a florist. I was looking for something with succulents, greenery, white flowers and small pops of colors with geometric/triangles mid-century modern vibe. With a florist, it can be challenging to visualize or even really get on the same page with what you want as there only so much you can do to communicate what “art” will look like. We went back and forth and added items, and talked through the vision until I was comfortable with both the budget and the design. Then the waiting process begins as you just have to trust the vision will come together in the end. Destiny and her team nailed it. It was everything I could have dreamed of and more. The primary design elements of the wedding were triangles, Destiny designed a multi-level triangle installation around the chimney with flowers woven in and out of it. It must have been 15 ft tall! It made for a unique backdrop to the ceremony and for pictures for the guests. The table installations were also amazing pulling in geometric shapes, candles and flowers creating a very cohesive theme throughout the wedding. They went above and beyond to fill gaps or pull flowers to add them to different places planned and unplanned to make everything look perfect. We truly loved Poppy and Mint!

Working with Destiny was wonderful from beginning to end. She was able to see a few images that I liked, and from that create an entire plan for my wedding day flowers. I could easily see that she worked with high-quality flowers, and has a serious gift for arranging. As I was...

With so many details to attend to while planning a wedding, it was so great to tell her my likes, dislikes, and then be able to trust that she would execute it all flawlessly. On top of the truly impressive work that she did, she was always easy to communicate with. She is very responsive, and clearly very organized. We went back and forth many times changing elements of the proposal, and she was always so kind, and very quick to get back to me. Destiny had an answer for every question I asked about how things worked, or logistics, or different options we were considering. And, most importantly, the flowers on our wedding day were absolutely gorgeous. From the ones in my hair to the chuppah to the bridesmaids bouquets... it was all perfect. I would recommend Poppy & Mint to absolutely anyone.

She sat with me on multiple occasions, looking through pinterest boards and random screen shots on my phone of what I liked, and she completely understood my vision.

Her work is just stunning, and not to mention she is an absolute delight to work with throughout the whole process. I would (and I do everyday) recommend Poppy and Mint to anyone looking for a florist.

Once Destiny started working in a flower shop as a little part-time job, she realized that this was to become her career. It did not take long for her to begin dreaming of her own floral studio. In it, she would combine everything she loves....pretty flowers, vintage finds, and crafts, along with plenty of fabric and ribbons. Fast forward a bit and here she is, pleased to introduce Poppy & Mint Floral Company, a culmination of everything she has dreamed of!
