Josef came highly recommended by all my vendors and I can see why! I love his creative eye and that he uses local aspects. Josef was so friendly, responsive, and flexible! I simply gave him a color and the overall "feel" of our wedding and he created the most beautiful bouquets I have ever seen!! My bridal bouquet was so much more amazing than I could have ever imagined!! He really understands weddings and how flowers add to it all to tie in the "feel" of it all. He felt like a close friend! I cannot brag enough about my bouquet!!

My experience working with Josef was top notch. Not only was he a visionary but he was extremely patient and flexible. I changed my wedding colors half way through the planning process and he was very accommodating with all the changes I wanted to make. He was a bit pricey but he got the job done and everything was absolutely beautiful.

I can't say enough good things about Botanica Floral Design. From the moment I contacted them about designing the floral for our wedding, I knew I was in good hands.

It means so much to trust your wedding vendors, and Josef earned that trust immediately with me; his quotes were detailed, professional, and prompt. He was so flexible and worked with us to really understand what we were looking for.

The flowers were stunning and we are still getting compliments on them, months after the wedding. They arrived on time and in amazing condition.

Botanica is truly a special vendor, full of talent and creativity. They made our wedding come together and I hope I can work with Josef for future events.

I cannot rave enough about the beautiful bouquets, corsages/boutonnieres, and floral arrangements that Botanic Flora Design provided for my wedding. Honestly, my bridal bouquet and the bouquets for my bridesmaids were my favorite part of the wedding. Absolutely perfect. I gave Josef some general ideas of the style of my wedding and what I liked/didn't like, but he truly put the whole thing together. I couldn't have asked for more beautiful flowers. We used a lot of succulents and light blues, greens, and pinks in our wedding decor and he complimented that theme perfectly. I was unsure of what sort of decor to use at the altar for the ceremony as well as down along the aisle. Josef suggested a birch backdrop that we rented through Botanica Flora Design as well as simple fern arrangements that were staggered along the aisle. I was continuously impressed with his vision, creativity, and practicality throughout the planning process.

We worked with Josef for our wedding - we wanted a rustic look - the flowers Josef provided were extraordinary! We heard so many compliments on the arrangements for the centerpieces - the head table was awesome and exactly as we had discussed. There wasn't one element that wasn't completely perfect. Plus, Josef if wonderful to work with - very laid-back and very interested in getting you the flowers you want. I would wholeheartedly recommend Josef and Botanica PDX to any bride, I think you will be very happy. Bonus - his prices are great!

I could not be happier with the flowers Josef at Botanica provided for my wedding. He really listened to my tastes and created floral designs that exceeded any expectations I had in mind for my big day. I am not your typical bride- no roses, only local flowers and organic whenever possible, and lots of herbs. He made all of my ideas come to life in ways I could never have imagined on my own. I would highly recommend Botanica for anyone planning a wedding or other important event. He will rock it!

Oh yes a 5.0 out of 5.0! Josef was GREAT! For ME, he was affordable. He replied back to emails w/i a 24 hour period and was very professional. He came to my site to decorate the archway and it was beautiful! He will take detailed notes and try his best to make your vision of flowers come true! GO BOTANICA~

Josef of Botanica Floral Design really made our wedding come to life. We weren't too particular on species of flowers or being really defined on what we wanted the arrangements etc. to look like. In our two meetings and emails we really discussed our color scheme and overall feeling we wanted to achieve. We left everything else up to the professional, Josef. The boutonnieres and bridal bouquets were just beautiful! He made them really unique making sure mine and Kenny's didn't look like everyone else's. Our ceremony area was flipped for the reception, and Josef was more than willing to stay to move the aisle and altar arrangements to the dinner tables and head table. It was nice that he was on board with two-for arrangements. Any personal element we wanted to provide ourselves, he was very accommodating and incorporated them into his design. Josef is very responsive and fun to work with. He is very talented and creative. He suggested we have potted ferns as a part of every centerpiece to go along with our northwest theme which was a nice touch and people got to take them home. We have since visited a couple of those people and it is really special to see they have planted a fern from our wedding. We couldn't be more happy with our decision to go with Josef as our florist as he really brought our venue and vision to life. He even helped us find our cake baker, Deb at White Rose Bakery!

Environmentally friendly, organic and local were the top factors my fiance and I were looking for as we searched for a florist for our wedding. Josef at Botanica exceeded all our expectations! I brought in a photo of a bouquet I found online that I liked and he created one that was 10X as beautiful as my "dream" bouquet. He created the perfect flowers for our perfect day. From flowers to top our cake, to a gardenia for my hair to a small arrangement for the table under our chuppah...everything was perfectly matched to our location (Oregon coast, beach wedding). The flowers were incredible...I wish I could have kept them forever...and actually I had a few of the arrangement in my house for about a week and a half after (with changing water and taking out those that wilted they looked great up til the end). He was very flexible, was able to work with us to make delivery seamless. Highly recommended...I want all my flowers to come from him for now on!!

We interviewed four florists and they were all just fantastic. When we got their bids, they were only within $200 of each other. Josef from Botanica Floral really listened to my daughter and her fiance. Josef had great ideas and really could help the prospective couple envision what the flowers would look like. As the mother-of-the-bride, I met with Josef several times to discuss the details. Josef was so easy to work with. He was very flexible when we changed the order at the last minute. On the day of the wedding, he glued ribbons onto vases and made sure all the flowers were beautiful. We would highly recommend him to any future bride and groom.

I started out with only a vague idea about what I wanted in wedding flowers, mainly I wanted organic, sustainable, locally grown flowers. Josef asked all the right questions and created the most beautiful and personal flowers I could imagine. He even made extra boutonnieres for the men because with the hot day and all the hugs he knew the first wouldn't last for the whole event. The bouquets lasted through the ceremony, reception, and we were able to enjoy them for many days after as well!

Josef is the most amazing floral artist I have ever encountered. After viewing his work on his website, my (then) fiancé and I did not need to look further. His work is beautiful and unique, and he was extremely helpful when we needed to make a few changes to our order. I received compliments on my bouquet on our wedding day and still continue to receive them! Many women said that my bouquet was the most amazing bouquet of any they had ever seen. With deep red flowers, fern curls and raspberrys, I don't know how it could have been more unique! The boutonnieres were exactly what we wanted too; succulents with fern curls and fiber optic grass! Simple and gorgeous. They received compliments as well. As our wedding was a simple one, we did not enlist Josef's services for table arrangements but I can only imagine how beautiful they would have been. He truly has a unique touch that is beyond the aesthetics of anything I have seen before.

Josef created a stunning bouquet that not only fit my exact specifications, but was more beautiful than I could have imagined. It makes the special day, just that more special when the bridal bouquet is perfect. I also really appreciate his use of local and sustainable flowers. Josef was very enjoyable to work with and I recommend Botanica for any floral needs.

I found Botanica through a charity auction (they donated to the silent auction). I was nervous at first not knowing a lot about them, but after meeting with Josef for our consultation he was so accommodating to what I was looking for, had great ideas and is really able to work with any budget. Not only was the process simple, my flowers were amazing! I recieved compliments all night and from people who saw my pictures. He is just so talented and takes flower arrangements to a whole new level. I can't say enough good things about my experience.

Botanica Floral Design was SO amazing to work with. Josef was extremely professional and responsive. I originally found him while I was looking for an eco-friendly floral designer because I wanted to work with like-minded people. I was planning my wedding from Boston and he was extremely flexible with me in our communications. When I first met him at his shop I was put at ease with his friendly personality and every time I asked if we could do something, the answer was always "yes, of course". Exactly what a destination bride wants to hear! I received so many compliments on my succulent bouquet that I didn't want to let it go all day! Everyone was asking me where I got it and how I came up with the idea. I didn't even have to say anything to Josef about what I wanted, I said "succulents" and he created masterpieces for me, our parents and wedding party.

I took apart my bouquet a few days after our wedding and repotted each plant and almost 2 months later they are growing huge! I would highly recommend Botanica Floral Design to any bride who wants something unique and beautiful. Thank you so much, Josef!

Botanica caught my eye at a wedding show because of his 'rustic' display of birch bark vase covers.....as well as 'tree seedling' gift favours. I inquired about services and Josef was willing to give all sorts of advice and price ranges to help me in checking the 'wedding flowers' OFF the list! (I didn't feel bad for being picky at undecisive either!) He was very helpful in giving ideas and seasonal options.

I was so very pleased the day of my wedding when my bouquets, etc. had arrived. They made me smile by exceeded my expectation and really made my wedding beautiful. I highly suggest his services for any occasion. He won't let you down :)

If you want people to talk about how stunning your flowers were and are on the day of your wedding, I would highly recommend Botanica Floral. Josef and his adore dog did an amazing job with our wedding. Always on time and available to speak with you; you always feel you are center of attention.

My husband and I received so many compliments about our floral choices. As well, our friends relayed to us how the centerpieces were still fresh, two weeks after we returned from our honeymoon. Incredible!

I have recommended Josef to everyone I know.

Josef is wonderful! My daughter lives in New York but got married in Portland, Oregon. We only had one meeting with him when my daughter came out in March. Josef was able to take my daughter's vague idea of what she wanted and create beautiful bouquets and centerpieces. The only flowers she knew she wanted were Billy Balls and sunflowers in her bouquet. He used those flowers and many more so that the sunflowers did not overwhelm the arrangement. He even gave her some extra Billy Balls to put in her hair.
The father of the groom also used Josef for the rehearsal dinner. He also gave just an idea of what he wanted. Josef made gorgeous round bowl arrangements with a variety of flowers. They were very pretty and we saved them and used them for the brunch the day after the wedding.
I love that he uses local flowers and sustainable practices. I will definitely use Josef again should I need a florist in Portland.

GREAT value - even for a 12-attendant ceremony and flowers for each of 25 reception tables, I loved working with Josef by phone, really enjoyed the flowers he put together, and loved even more that they were pesticide-free and locally grown. All of my guests took photos of the floral arrangements on the reception tables (which were still fairly large, and AWESOME). Loved that I could rent the vases instead of wastefully buying more stuff I'd have to pickup and get rid of later.

A note: I suspect that one of the reasons this was so affordable was because I specifically didn't want too many big flowers - I strongly prefer these more modern arrangements with seed pods, thistles, cool foliage and unique buds. I also laid down my price expectations outright. Josef was VERY accomodating, though there were some red roses in my bouquet (which I don't typically care for) they were mixed in a gorgeous combination of neat other stuff that even picked up the blues in my bridesmaids dresses - a difficult color to come by in mid-Fall.

Bravo!

We got my bridal bouquet and boutonniere from Botanica Floral Design and were very happy with both of them. The colors were beautiful, bright, deep and arranged beautifully. Josef even took the time out of his day to deliver the flowers to our event, which was really helpful and above and beyond what he needed to do for us. I would highly recommend using Botanica Floral Design!
