nspiration as well. At no point did I feel like she was trying to sell me on something I didn’t want. Her and her team were professional, my centerpieces turned out bigger than I ever dreamt of, and she even worked with my venue to use and decorate their arch (which looked identical to the design outline she provided)! She even helped me formulate a pattern of decor on the rows of farmhouse tables throughout my venue so that it would look full and cohesive. We got so many compliments from older and younger guests alike.
To be honest, I am very Type A, picky, and can definitely hover over people. Wallflower Designs was so phenomenal and professional throughout the whole process and proactively communicated with me and left me worry-free the whole wedding planning process. I would recommend them to everyone I know!!!

Even the wrist corsages for the moms and the handmade twig baskets with rose petals for the flower girls were so delicate and beautifully designed. From the start Marla was such a joy to work with. She is so relaxed, personable, attentive. She was so responsive to questions and ideas, and when our wedding venue changed from a traditional site to our backyard, due to the pandemic, she didn't miss a beat, coming out to our home for inspiration, and creating the most romantic and beautiful backdrop for the best day of our lives. Marla is so talented at what she does, but also the kindest, sweetest woman. We are so grateful for all she did for us during the wedding planning process and on our wedding day. We would recommend Marla 110% for anyone needing flowers for any occasion. She goes above and beyond and is such a pleasure to work with. And her work is absolutely out of this world. Thank you Marla so so much for truly making our wedding day more beautiful than we ever could have imagined!!

I had met with Marla and she showed me some of her previous work and weddings and I was instantly amazed and stunned she knew exactly what I was looking for and the color variations to compliment our bridesmaids dress without matching them. I love that we gave Marla full reign on our florals and she created and sketched this beautiful drawing of some of our florals that I actually framed because it was som creative and a really nice keepsake for us from our wedding. Marla’s work speaks for itself she has such a creative eye and really knows her stuff about flowers and what compliments and pairs extremely well together. Most brides have a set look for florals and I will say out of all the weddings I have attended I’ve seen the same types of flowers and with Marla her bouquets are so different and unique and vibrant it was a no brainer for us to go with her. From our ceremony and our giant pergola to our reception everything was done in great timing and it was all so beautiful and we had so many compliments from our guests at how stunned and beautiful our flowers were. We had two weddings giving the circumstances for our wedding and Marla made sure our original wedding date that we got all the same florals and not much was different from the two days and she made both our wedding date and reception both so so special. I can not imagine our day without her she made all our hopes and dreams come true. I loved my bouquet so much I took it to a preservation company so I can cherish those flowers she put together for me for many years to come I loved them so much. Marla your work is incredible and you are the sweetest person who was there to answer every question and who assured me that they were going to be stunning and they were nothing but pure beauty and beyond anything I had envisioned from the start. Thank you for everything that you did to make our day so special we are beyond lucky to have had you a part of our two days ❤️

I can not describe working with Marla and Wallflower Designs as anything other than phenomenal.
Marla is a truly talented and gifted floral artist who listened to us every step of the way, and created our vision to a “T.” She was always prom...
pt, timely, organized, and extremely helpful in guiding us to visualize and construct our ideas into a concept.
Her office was clean, inviting, and complete with a broad selection of photos of her work and floral options. Marla also had several examples of vase and container selectionsfor us to pick from. We eventually decided upon a unique glass hob nail jar and rippled tin collection that kept our theme of rustic elegance alive! I can’t say I’ve seen these at anyone’s wedding before ours (we went to 8 weddings this year!) this made us feel the real uniqueness of Marla’s offerings.
Marla even created a design preview of our large hanging ceremony piece and ensured that we had a vision of what our wedding day would look like. She was also great at reminding us what pieces we may have wanted but forgot to think about (grandmother corsages, rose ceremony hand outs, guest table additions.) We greatly appreciated that in discussions like these, and all others, that she did not push ideas or costs we were not looking for. She always respected our budget, and at no point felt pushy or overbearing. Each meeting felt like an afternoon with a friend.
On the big day, we were finally able to enjoy Marla’s creations! I was absolutely blown away...I couldn’t even count how many guests gushed over the flowers that night. Their vibrant fragrance, their unique pairings, and excellent quality were a constant discussion even weeks after the wedding. Marla found not just gorgeous flowers but incredible grasses, fauna, and even seed pods to create incredible variation and different fall look. Marla even did work behind the scenes the night of the wedding that I didn’t catch as I bustled around. She helped us repurpose particular bouquets and floral arrangements to save on cost, and everything was completed seamlessly and without any disruption. If you want a reliable, imaginative, creative, and passionate florist to design for your wedding, Marla is absolutely it! I will recommend her to any bride for ANY design style for years to come. She was such a lucky find for us, and I just know she’s going to make every bride so happy as her heart is in her work!

, I got a sense of calm in talking to her. I know very little about flowers, and was unsure of what specifically I wanted, but in asking a few questions about my wedding in general, she was able to make suggestions on what we could do, and how it would work with my budget. She also shared images of her previous work, and we discussed styles I liked and disliked. It was clear in talking to her, that Marla is a master at her craft, and in hiring her, I could let her do what she does best! After signing the contract, we stayed in touch via email, and met in person once when I was back in IL. Marla was always easy to get in touch with, flexible and accommodating throughout the entire process. We were able to rent items through her, such as votive candles and other details. While I know some brides prefer to buy items like these, since we live out of state in a tiny apartment, this was such a convenience! And on the big day, the flowers were oh so beautiful! Everything turned out better than I could have imagined, and we got so many compliments on the flowers, especially the bouquets and boutonnieres. I am truly grateful Marla was a part of our wedding and highly recommend her to any bride!

Breathtaking - that is the best way I can describe the floral accents/arrangements at our wedding ... and this is all thanks to Wallflower Designs.
My husband & I hired Marla for all of our floral needs (bouquets, centerpieces, ceremony, cake ...
deco, reception hall deco, etc...). The planning process was easy and extremely detailed which made things a whole lot less stressful! One of the most amazing things about Marla is that I had absolutely no idea what I really wanted for our flowers - just an idea that I wanted rustic elegance made up of burgundy, ivory, and gold - she took this simple information and transformed it into a plan that exceeded expectations. Marla was also really great at working within our budget - giving us tips & tricks to get the look we wanted and not having to spend more than we wanted to get it.
Wallflower Designs is a full service florist which really makes the big day stress free - a lot of my girlfriends had florists who simply dropped off flowers which then had to be set-up by either the bride and her "girls" or the venue. Working with Marla, however meant that she was there to set-up all flowers prior to the ceremony & reception and she even re-purposed ceremony flowers into the reception & dancing area after the ceremony!!!
All I can say is if you want a knowledgeable florist, who is easy to work with, extremely organized, and who can make all your floral dreams come true - Wallflower Designs is the ONLY way to go!
