I would not have had such a beautiful wedding without Kelly. She was amazing and was always there when I needed her. She made it easy to plan a wedding across the country. She sent pictures of the ceremony site and planned everything that was needed to make the reception beautiful. She took my vision and turned it to a reality. She is so knowledgable and really worked with my budget. I got compliments about how beautiful everything was and that the hall where the reception was held still smelled amazing from the candles and flowers the day after. She really is the best and I appreciated the lengths she went through to make everything amazing. I totally recommend her for your wedding. You won't be disappointed. She really is the best.

Kelly handled day-of-coordination, floral and event design for my wedding and she really went above and beyond.

From our first conversation, I knew I wanted to work with her. She immediately put me at ease about my budget, gave me direction on vendors, and totally got the look I was going for even though I was still figuring out how to articulate that. I initially reached out to Kelly about coordination but was happy to learn she also did floral. It was great only having one person to deal with and made everything more cohesive.

Months before my wedding we met on site and went over what I was thinking. I told her I loved ferns, showed her a photo of my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and a few pintrest photos of tables and bouquets and she took it from there, checking in with me along the way.

Since Kelly has been doing this for 20 years or so, she has accumulated a ton of stuff so many things you might normally be charged for were all lent to me for no charge. Basically, anything I told her I wanted, she found a way to make it happen. If she had it already, I wasn't charged for it and if I needed to rent something, she handled that too and I simply paid an invoice at the end (she ordered, picked up, and returned all rentals).

For the actual wedding weekend, she created an EXTREMELY detailed timeline. She arrived at the venue before me on Thursday for set up and left after me on Sunday. She was even there Friday night to organize the rehearsal, which made me feel so much better about the actual ceremony. I wasn't stressed about a single thing on the wedding day and either were my friends and family because of Kelly. Did I mention that her staff picked up my super-anxious dog from her boarding place for the ceremony and dropped her off afterwards!

I could go on and on about Kelly but am at my word limit. Bottom line - Kelly is professional, super talented and can work with any budget. She's also really nice. Call her now!

Pros: When you speak with her she is on top of her game. You complete a worksheet – which Kelly uses to work with you in deciding what you want. She does a great job working with your vision AND budget.
Cons: It was very difficult to get in touch with Kelly. I feel that she may have been overworked – and may have too many clients. I reviewed the table centerpieces and the amount the week of the wedding. Due to a miscommunication between Kelly and my day of coordinator – I was two centerpieces short. Thankfully between Kelly’s assistants and my coordinator, they provided a work-around. However, I was very disappointed in it because I thought communication between Kelly and myself was clear – and I provided her with a final count. Yet, the centerpieces were short. In addition, one of the things she said she would do with the ceremony décor for the reception was not complete.

I would suggest Kelly focus on the amount of clients she has and not bite off more than she could chew.

120% of exactly what I wanted and made my life easy! Kelly and her team were amazing to work with and the first 2 minutes on the phone with her way back when, I knew she was my florist..............and I talked to many! She listened to what I liked, traveled to meet me at the venue with samples and her suggestions and it all came together. Kelly called me prb last 2 weeks before the wedding date to check in, ask for any updates and reviewed all of our set up and was wonderful with any suggestions she thought was necessary. I already passed her information along to a friend getting married in October! Everything was beautiful and exactly how she described it, I am still in love with my bouquet! :) I would highly recommend Ambiance Floral!
Thanks again!!!

Kelly was BY FAR the best money spent of my entire wedding. My husband and I decided to have our fall wedding at a new location near our hometown. I, unfortunately, was not one of those girls who have had their wedding planned since they were a child, so the entire process seemed incredibly overwhelming to me. Luckily, I had heard about Kelly from a friend and decided to reach out to her. We hired her for both planning and the floral/decor. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with every choice we made, and vendor we booked. Even though we had talked often about the details of what the ceremony and reception decor would look like, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it firsthand. It was better than I could have ever imagined, and guest are STILL talking about how beautiful everything was! She made the whole planning process as easy and seamless as possible, and the whole day went off without a hitch (at least to my knowledge!) She truly is an incredible planner and I would recommend her for ANY event planning, especially a wedding. I seriously cannot say enough about how helpful, organized, and FRIENDLY she was during the entire process!! Thank you, Kelly!

We had the absolute best experience working with Ambiance. Kelly is incredibly organized, composed, thoughtful and professional, but most importantly she is truly a good person, which made it a pleasure to work with her. Throughout our year long planning process we always felt like our wedding was her number one priority. Being that we are from out of town I was so nervous about everything coming together the way I wanted it to, but from the moment we got in touch with Kelly everything became so much easier and less stressful. Kelly continuously went out of her way to make herself available via email, text, phone calls and in person. She went above and beyond in every way possible leading up to our wedding day and on the actual day of our wedding I literally worried about NOTHING. Everything went off without a hitch and my husband and I were able to enjoy every second of our big day. Kelly is such a proactive problem solver that even if/when hiccups did arise, I never knew about them. She took care of details I didn't even know existed and our wedding wouldn't have been as amazing as it was without her. I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect day and we owe it all to Kelly and the other Ambiance staff.

As an out-of-town bride communication and organization are the two most important things for my vendors. Kelly was extremely organized before the wedding making sure every detail was planned out. During our meetings she was prepared and focused. Although, it was somewhat difficult to communicate with her VIA e-mail where questions would get lost at times. Having the out-of-office auto reply to every e-mail is frustrating and not necessary.

The day of the wedding, it seems a few things we planned didn't happen. We were supposed to have someone assist the groomsmen, my father and our grandfathers with their boutonnieres. But they were just in their boxes in the entrance to the church, luckily the boys thought on their feet and made sure everyone got one.

I remember when we met, she had planned to make sure that she would possible have back-up flowers for my bouquet because dahlias don't last very long, but that wasn't offered the day of, I never really saw anyone who worked with the florist at all. I was also supposed to have a toss-bouquet ready on the dj table which he never received, so I had to throw a bridesmaid bouquet(not ideal). The silver fabric around my bouquet was falling apart the entire day covering me and anyone else who handled it in sparkles.

Bottom line: The flowers were gorgeous. Some of the details we planned on didn't happen on the big day(she informed me later that she was short staffed that day). Overall, I would still recommend Ambiance Event Planning & Floral Designs.

Ambiance Event Planning & Floral Designs responded with the following comments:

I am so sorry for your experience on your wedding day. As I emailed you, much of this was due to the death of a family member of two of our staff (sisters) the night before your wedding which cut our staff in half for the event. That coupled with running to pick up the runner that was added last minute and the venue not setting the tables until 2 hours before the event really crushed the timing of the day. Since we were only hired for floral and not coordination, we were not there at the reception after it began, and the toss bouquet which was placed on the cake table and told to a waitstaff member, was obviously not seen, but was in fact there. The staff at the venue also moved other items we had preset, so it had an impact on time from needed to redesign everything again as well as locating items we delivered. I regret this being your experience for your wedding, and while you do not get a chance to redo that day, we would greatly appreciate an opportunity to design for you again in the future.

Kelly at Ambiance was the best decision we made. I loved my flowers, girls flowers everything about the wedding. I found out about Kelly by my next door neighbor, her daughter used her for her wedding. Kelly did a outstanding job with flowers, decorating the room and can't say what a awesome job she did. I didn't really know what I wanted and she was patient and helpful. I was behind thrilled with the outcome. I will recommend her to all my friends. Thank you so much.

Kelly functioned as the day-of coordinator for my recent wedding and her help was truly invaluable before, during and after the wedding. Just to name a few ways she assisted:
--Creating a timeline
--Organizing and transporting decor, favors, programs, etc for ceremony and reception
--Providing emergency kits, etc.
--Decorating the reception venue -- favors, seating cards, gift box, plus beautiful personal touches all around!
--Cleaning up after the ceremony and reception--evening transporting my dress, top layer of cake, extra supplies. She returned the tuxes too!
She even brought white flowers and pinned them in my hair once I took off my veil after the ceremony! Really, above and beyond. I am so grateful for all her help. She made the day more fun and easy for me without having to worry about, or assign others to worry about, these various tasks. Plus she's so sweet and funny. I really trusted her and it was comforting to know she was on top of everything while I was celebrating with my guests.
