The floral arrangements, courteousness of all involved and service overall were the best that I have ever experienced. I would recommend this florist to anyone and cannot say enough about how exquisite the ballroom looked after their staff completed the arrangements. I received numerous compliments from our guests on the floral arrangements.

I cannot say enough good things about the team at Carl Alan! From my initial visit where I received a tour and saw actual wedding flowers being designed, to meeting Carl Alan himself, to having an easy relaxing meeting with my designer Heather! My experience was fun, beautiful and I was always treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. I feel like everyone that works at Carl Alan befriends you and really listens to your desires and needs for you wedding day. Heather took my inspiration pictures and ran with them and I honestly think my centerpieces and bouquets turned out a million times better than my inspiration pics! I was overwhelmed with how beautiful everything was and how it made the venue complete! Heather even took time out of her busy working day to come to my hotel and put charms on all the girls bouquets when I wasn't able to drop them off at the studio. What business do you know goes out of their way to make sure YOU are their priority!!! Go visit Carl Alan today! You will not question you decision after your first meeting with them!!

Amazing! Heather was my designer and she absolutely listened to my every request and managed to stay within our very tight budget. The flowers for the bridal party and my bouquet were lovely. Heather emailed pictures as she was arranging them and asked for my feedback which was much more than I expected! The reception flowers and table arrangements were just lovely. You can't go wrong with Carl Alan!

I absolutely loved working with Carl Alan. From the initial phone call to the day-of, they were always prompt, friendly, and extremely helpful. They took care of everything from delivery to clean up and I never had to worry any logistical details. Vito's recommendations on specific flowers to use exactly fit my vision - he was great to work with and the whole team is very talented! I definitely recommend using Carl Alan as your florist for your wedding.

Carl Alan Floral designs exceeded my expectations for my wedding at the JG Domestic/Cira Center at Garces Catering. Our designer, Vito was amazing at making my ideas and inspirations come to life. He was very flexible and incorporated changes to my floral design. Everyone at my wedding commented on our how beautiful and vibrant my flowers were on my wedding day. The venue was a blank space at the the flowers really made the venue shine. I choose an unusual bridal bouquet and I was in love with the floral combination. Vito made my Pinterest dreams realistic. He incorporated rustic elements through a beautiful chuppah. Vito was very professional and I would highly recommend Carl Alan Designs Ltd,.

The whole experience of planning a wedding can be overwhelming until you find the right vendors! Carl Alan Floral Designs, LTD., was amazing! By far, the highlight of planning my wedding was working with Vito. He was enthusiastic, accommodating, creative, professional, and most importantly, so much fun! Vito took his time through the consultation, I basically told him I wanted a romantic/classic wedding, and he suggested various kinds of flowers to meet my vision. He even created a live sample so that I could see, smell, and touch the flowers discussed (not something that many, if any, florists do for their clients!) Huge perk in my book! I left the consultation excited about working with him and even went back to add lighting, additional draping and furniture rentals (increasing my budget, but well worth it). From consultation to execution on my wedding day, a bride wants to have full trust in her vendors, and I had no worries or disappointment with Carl Alan Floral Designs. Vito and his staff did a wonderful and amazing job! I can't thank them enough. Vito even went above and beyond ensuring that my escort card door was draped beautifully, so thank you. Even Uncle Carl was a delight throughout the whole process. I only wish I had another event to do it all again! ~Wedding Date 7.05.14 in Philadelphia PA~

Vito was amazing! The flowers were absolutely perfect. They even sent me a picture of my bouquet the night before to make sure I absolutely loved it and, of course, I did!! They even held up for a long time in the hot July weather. Thanks Carl Alan!

I loved working with Heather at Carl Alan. From the moment we met, Heather and Carl Alan worked within my budget to create floral arrangements and bouquets that perfectly fit my vision. I was able to see the arrangements ahead of time to approve them and received pictures of my bouquet as it was being made. On the day of, everything arrived on time and the arrangements were beautifully prepared at my venue. I loved everything about my flowers and Carl Alan. Everyone I met there was friendly and they did an amazing job. I'm so happy that I worked with them.

I have no words for how amazing Vito and everyone at Carl Alan was. We used them as our florist and everything was PERFECT. I sent Vito pictures of everything I liked for center pieces, chuppah and bouquet and they executed it all so beautifully. I was worried as I was planning my wedding from Florida and I was getting married in the Philly area but even after I moved back to Philly I could have gone without even meeting Vito and his team and I know it would have been absolutely amazing. We had originally thought we would do some short center pieces and some tall, but after realizing that instead of 220 guests and 22 tables that we were going to have 350+ guests and 32 tables we went with all small. They were absolutely exquisite. Vito listened when I said I did not like a lot of greenery and "filler" flowers and he made the bouquet EXACTLY as him and me had discussed and based on the pictures I had sent him. My husband had a bouquet of red roses sent to me from Carl Alan at my parents house the Friday before the wedding and they were utterly beautiful. The hardest part is giving people center pieces to take home! I want to keep them all forever. I would 1000% recommend Carl Alan to any bride. My budget was not huge and not small but they were able to do everything we discussed and stayed within our budget. Such a pleasure to work with!!

Vito and the team at Carl Alan Florals created the most beautiful Bouquets and Center Pieces for my Wedding. From the very first consultation phone call (because I live out of town from where my Wedding was being held), I knew instantly Carl Alan Florals was who I wanted to use as my florist because of how much I connected with Vito and the level of energy and passion that came through our conversation from him. I had full confidence he would deliver exactly what I wanted just from the way he was able to read my mind on the different flowers I was trying to describe to him, etc. He more than took my designs and ideas and turned them into a stunning masterpiece. The way Carl Alan charges for arrangements works in the customers favor so that you are still able to get the look you want and the types of flowers you want, I was more than pleased. The assortment of vases, props and pieces that are available to choose from for your centerpieces are endless and top quality!

The tears were instant when the bouquets showed up at my hotel room because of how happy I was with what he created for me. The man who delivered them was so professional and patient with me as I sorted through everything. All of our guests were blown away with how they turned out and kept saying they were the most gorgeous arrangements of wedding flowers they have ever seen. And the Cake - Absolutely amazing. I could not stop staring at it all night and kept making sure all our guests went up to see it before it was cut!! The clusters of flowers were perfect the way they were arranged. Kathleen was so thorough with all of her constant follow up and patience with all of the last minute changes I had made with some arrangements and total counts. She really made the entire planning experience that much more relaxing for me and I really appreciate it.

I will absolutely recommend Carl Alan Florals to any Bride getting married in the area not only because of the quality of arrangements that are crea

When you start meeting with potential florists, I found you very quickly get overwhelmed. At least, those of us who don't know the names of every flower out there. Many other vendors would look at my Pinterest board and then list the types of flowers they would incorporate into our bouquets and centerpieces, and I would leave with a list as long as my arm to throw in to google image search to have even an idea of what they were describing. Then came Carl Alan. Vito is UNREAL. He went through every picture, excused himself, and returned 3 minutes later with dozens of different flowers. "Do you like this?" he'd say, holding up a flower? Yes! He added it to the makeshift tiny bouquet he was putting together. "What about this?" No! He'd toss it behind his back. It was such a fun way to pick my flowers while understanding the specific types. Carl Alan was a terrific vendor - I'd recommend them any day.

Carl Alan Floral Designs is amazing. I could not have been happier with our floral design for our wedding day. Heather is truly a professional and wonderful to work with. She spent hours with me figuring out exactly how I wanted our room and bouquets to look, drew it out, re-created it for a trial run then on the big day made our wedding reception look incredible. Heather and the team at Caral Alan are so professional and so genuine in that they really want their clients to be happy with every single detail. I will never forget how wonderful this place, especially Heather was to me and my family and can not recommend them highly enough!

I worked with Vito at Carl Alan and he's the best!!! He took my vision (through what I told him and photos from my Pinterest Page) and ran with it so my flowers and centerpieces looked even more amazing than anything I could have come up with on my own!! He nailed it and I can't wait to have my photos back! My bridesmaids all said they thought their (and my) bouquets were more beautiful than any bouquets they've seen at weddings before!! They are so easy to work with at Carl Alan and make the whole process so much less stressful! They have so many wonderful ideas and will work as close to your budget as they can.

Thank you to Vito for creating gorgeous centerpieces and bouquets. We looked at MANY florists and within the first few minutes of meeting Vito, I knew I would use him. He's so creative and read my personality and style without me telling him what I was thinking of doing...which is something I highly valued in a florist. I completely trusted his ideas and everything came out beautifully. He also made a feathered/glass arrangement for my picture table which complimented my wedding theme and venue. If you're looking for someone with talent who can do exactly what you want or create arrangements based on a few general ideas/pictures, then Vito is the guy.

Everything was exactly as we had discussed and actually looked better than I imagined. I live out of state and all plans had to be done via email or over the phone. They were and I never felt like I wasn't heard or that I was being ignored. Thank you everyone at Carl Alan.

Booking Carl Alan to handle all of the flowers for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We met with Vito for the initial consultation and immediately felt confident that he understood our vision and the look we were going for. We met with several other florists and none offered the opportunity to put together a sample centerpiece for us to see before the wedding. That was definitely a big selling point for us. Carl Alan was a bit out of our original budget but we completed trusted Vito and he did not disappoint. The entire team was reliable and great to work with. I can honestly say that when I saw my bouquet on the day of my wedding it took my breath away. The flower arrangements were gorgeous and completely fit with the rest of our aesthetic. We have received so many compliments about the flowers from our guests. If you are looking for a trustworthy and floral visionary to make your flowers wow your guests…Carl Alan is the one to book!

Carl Alan was one of the recommended vendors by our venue, and after seeing their display table at a bridal show we decided to set up a consultation for our wedding. Our initial meeting was with Adam and we were really impressed with how much time he took with us and how he listened to my ideas and offered his opinions to help us execute them within our budget. He was also familiar with our venue which was a huge help because he could help us determine what sort of arrangements and centerpieces would work best. Three or four months before the wedding, we had an appointment to see our centerpieces. At this time we learned that Adam was no longer with the company, but after seeing that Vito easily picked up where he left off, we weren't worried- the centerpieces were just as we had designed them with Adam. The day before the wedding, they emailed me photos of the bouquets. Although they were beautiful, I was concerned that my bridal bouquet wasn't unique enough from the bridesmaids - I wanted mine to have more color and the bridesmaids to have more whites and ivories. I got an email back saying that they would take care of it and suggested adding a different deeper colored flower. I told them to do what they thought looked best since they know better. When I saw my bouquet the next day I was thrilled- most beautiful one I've ever seen! The ribbons around the bridesmaids bouquets were the wrong colors when delivered- something most would never notice- but one of Carl Alan's staff members actually left and came back with the correct ribbons on my very very rainy wedding day. I got so many compliments on my centerpieces and bouquets throughout the night. I have already recommended Carl Alan to several of my engaged friends!

I just had my wedding on 3/22 and my flowers and centerpieces were done by Carl Alan, Heather was my designer and I had a great experience with them. My now husband is very particular about budgeting and such and my planner has worked extensively with this company and recommended them, among others. I went for an appointment with them and met with Heather and they definitely exceeded my expectations. They were able to work with the pricing we were aiming for. I'm not a particular person, but Heather walked me through the whole process and helped me realize and conceptualize a vision I was aiming for. I wanted the floating candles look with just a few flowers and the centerpieces looked amazing. My bouquet was also gorgeous. She was also very helpful in terms of tips on how to save on stuff, etc (very much appreciated by my husband). They did not disappoint on the big day and I've gotten a lot of compliments on the centerpieces and my bouquet. Corresponding with them was also very easy, emails were answered promptly, etc. Overall would highly recommend them!!!!

Carl Alan did a beautiful job with the flowers. We had some tricky situations around the church as it did not have pews but they made a way to make it work with the pew flowers. Additionally we were on a boat, and some of the centerpieces had tipped over and broke. They were immediately replaced and were found for another place on the boat where it still looked beautifully decorated but was stable.

They were flexible and professional. Our designer Vito did a great job helping us pick out flowers that matched our scheme. The bouquets were flawless.

We met with Carl and his team in November. They created beautiful bouquets and centerpieces for us that day, and delivered a very comprehensive and competitive bid that same day.

We worked with Vito. He was amazing. My daughter, the bride, shared her vision with him, and he got it right away. At our first meeting, after hearing our ideas, he pulled flowers to help us visualize the look for the table arrangements, boutonnieres, and bouquets, He and Kathleen were very easy to work with. He decorated 2 Trellis towers we had for the ceremony and helped us coordinate our candle votives with the table arrangements. The results on the day of the wedding were breath-taking! The colors of the bouquets were very delicate and the centerpieces were fabulous - curly willow branches in tall mercury glass vases with mercury glass candle votives hanging from the branches. From the beginning to the end, there were no problems, and they delivered on everything we asked for.

Vito and the team at Carl Alan are simply amazing. Vito is passionate and welcoming. He gets an idea of your vision and then shows you his take, creating arrangements, in the very first appointment, which some other florists fail to do. I was excited and confident from the get-go in working with him, and had a strong idea of what our arrangements would look like on the big day. Kathleen and the staff are responsive and supportive, and make sure that everything is in perfect order leading up to the big day. Carl Alan Floral Designs is 100% the right choice for your big day!

All I have to say is WOW! My mouth dropped when I walked into my wedding at the Crystal Tea Room. Decor and ambiance were at the top of my list, and I had extremely high expectations, and Vito knocked my socks off! My guests were shocked and couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the event was. They thought my center pieces were over a thousand dollars each, and one person even asked me if the place card table piece was over two thousand. It obviously wasn't, but it was absolutely stunning and I've never seen anything like it.

I have never seen a more beautifully decorated event than what Vito created for my wedding. He totally understood my vision and truly went above and beyond. I would recommend him to anyone, especially brides who are really serious about the event decor who have a unique vision in mind.

I went to another place, Table Art, and they said they couldn't achieve my vision for my budget. Carl Alan (Vito) was able to do this AND THEN SOME!

From our very first appointment, we were very impressed with the team at Carl Alan!! Vito is absolutely amazing to work with. He is a great listener and takes everything that you say into consideration when creating a design. The flowers at our wedding were exquisite! When we walked into the room for the first time, we were floored! They really took our vision and made it a reality. Our bouquets were also STUNNING! I really had no idea what I wanted for a bouquet, but Vito took all of my ideas and pictures I had showed him and made the most beautiful bouquet I could have ever asked for. I highly suggest using Carl Alan at your event!!

Wow. Amazing. From first consultation to wedding night, everyone on staff here is committed to making your vision come to life. Best of all, if you're like me and you don't have a vision, Vito and other designers will suggest great ideas far beyond what you could ever think of - and they are all unique. If you're looking for something more memorable than a "a mix of white shades" then this florist is your answer. I never had to worry or second guess a thing! "Wow was all I could say (and all I heard from my guests) all night!

I can't say enough amazing things about Carl Alan! From the first time we met Vito the whole experience was virtually flawless. Vito listened to what I wanted, made suggestions, showed us different floral combinations during our meetings (two face to face) and helped get to a place where we both felt great and I always felt like my vision was communicated and received. Communicating with the office was by far the easiest of all of my vendors- Kathleen was fantastic, responsive and helpful. I appreciated the quick responses, always updating the contract to be sure everyone was on the same page. The flowers for our wedding turned out absolutely perfect- and I've gotten so many compliments on the beautiful chuppah! I highly recommend Vito and Kathleen and will use Carl Alan for any floral needs in the Philly area!

Vito was amazing. He and his staff took my "vision" and ran beyond the horizon with it. The personal flowers were so beautiful and I was blown away by just how gorgeous my bouquet turned out. I am such a minimalist that I was just a little concerned with how a bridal bouquet would turn out, but Vito's design was a perfect blend of size, color, and flowers. I was so pleased. The room was so beautiful and elegant without seeming ostentatious. Their method of managing my order made it easy for me to adjust my flowers to make sure I was getting the most out of my budget. The staff, Kathleen especially, was so great to talk to and work with. I could not have chosen a better florist.

I hired Carl Alan Event Creations for my wedding on 11-9-13 at Ballroom at the Ben. From the very first meeting with Vito, our designer, I felt very comfortable and knew he understood my vision for my wedding. Not only did we talk about options for bouquets and centerpieces, but he actually created samples throughout the meeting in order for me to better visualize everything, which was different from other florists I had met with. They were also responsive and organized and got back to me quickly if I had any questions leading up to my wedding day. The day of the wedding, they dropped all of the flowers off at my house in a timely manner and everything was organized perfectly. And when I walked into Ballroom at the Ben before my reception started, I was blown away by how beautiful all the centerpieces looked! Thank you to Vito and Carl Alan Event Creations for making my wedding day that much more special!

We used Vito for our wedding & loved him! Vito was SO fun to work with from the second I met him! I didn't have a theme going into the appt-I'm an older bride(38) & wanted to keep it elegant, yet fun. I'm not a bright color person, I like more monochromatic (whites/grays) w/ maybe a touch of color/fun/humor thrown in there somewhere! We looked at pictures & by the time the appointment was over, I was so excited about what we chose! And every decision seemed so easy to make, it all just worked! I chose not to go with any flowers, instead we had different length white candles filling up the table centers, with some fall leaves sprinkled around them. No one can stop talking about the candle centerpieces... seriously! We had elegant candles bordering the ceremony runner & a beautiful chapuh draped with white material around 4 poles w/ a beaded chandelier in the middle... which no one can stop talking about either. I bought some fun Halloween decorations (fall colored candles, sparkly spiders, bride and groom frankenstein statue, skull cocktail napkins) for the bar area for Vito to put out as he saw fit, and that gave the bar the fall fun I wanted to incorporate! The feedback from guests is overwhelming!

I use Carl Alan whenever I have any floral needs (personal or professional). On top of their amazing ability to relate and understand your taste and needs they always provide a fresh outlook on what you have in mind. A few months before the wedding, I thought I had everything figured out then decided to switch up all our bouquets. On top of that in the last week I decided to add on a large display for a table. Not once did I ever feel as though I was causing an inconvenience. I still say to this day if there was one thing I could treasure forever without any changes from the wedding it would have been my flowers. I would recommend Carl Alan to any bride, event planner or person looking for a vendor that can provide a helpful service that you can rely on.

Our guests were "Wow'd" by the overall floral creations Vito created in Georgian Room and Ballroom at the hotel.

Where to start...Vito and the Carl Alan team envisioned our ideas from the start and were very in tuned with what we wanted our wedding to look like. With just one wonderful meeting we discussed flowers and decor, he came up with a theme that was unique and creative. At that point I felt like i couldn't wait 9 months to see this unique theme that was going to MAKE the wedding. Working with them was easy and flexible and they were always open to ideas for the wedding day. The day of the wedding was fabulous, but when we were the first of the wedding party to see the room, it was absolutely breathtaking! The lighting, centerpieces, seating card table looked amazing and room had such a great vibe! I am so thankful we chose them to do our flowers but they also did an amazing job on decorating for the wedding. Highly recommended!

My wife & I shared a certain vision for our wedding.The importance of the floral arrangement was top priority.Before we found Carl Alan we went to two other florists outside of Philadelphia.Both of them went over budget and didn't understand our vision.When we arrived at Carl Alan we were brought to a comfortable room in the back where we met with Vito.Within about 5 minutes we knew we found our florist.Vito understood exactly what we wanted and his face lit up with excitement.You can really tell how passionate he is about his work.After an hour of going over ideas he gave us an estimate.The price was over budget.He saw that we were concerned about the price so he started making adjustments and supplementing certain items.He even recommended that we buy some of the smaller items ourselves to save on renting costs.After about 5 minutes of reworking he gave us another estimate.He managed to cut out $1,000.We were so thrilled that we put in our deposit on the spot.My wife was glowing on our wedding day.The bouquet was exactly what she dreamed of.The reception was breath taking.The arrangements really brought the room together just how Vito envisioned.It was perfect.But what really moved me was what happened after.Right before we left for our honeymoon my wife realized her bouquet was missing.We searched everywhere for it but nothing came up.It killed me to see how upset she was.While on our honeymoon Vito sent an email saying that he heard about the missing bouquet & that he would like to recreate it for her free of charge.Reading this literally brought a tear to my eye.Fortunately, I got an email 1 hour later from the venue saying that they found the bouquet.We were so glad we had the original back but that gesture from Vito spoke volumes.Carl Alan goes above & beyond from a typical floral design shop & most importantly they truly care more about the overall experience & happiness of their customers above anything else.
Thank you, The Graneys

Vito and Kathleen were awesome to work with!! Vito was one of my favorite vendors to collaborate with, we clicked immediately and really made the process a fun time. People commented on the beautiful flowers throughout the day and still are commenting. The best part was that Vito really worked with me on my budget, trying to figure out how we could keep it within our means and still have a beautiful product. At the final showing of the center pieces, I felt something was off and he was quick to give me his expertise and I'm so glad he did because he helped me define my vision and I could not have been happier with my center pieces the day of. I want to get married again just so I have an excuse to go in and talk to Vito again! Thanks guys!

Vito and the team at Carl Alan were wonderful to work with and provided absolutely gorgeous floral centerpieces and bouquets. They completely transformed the venue and everything was more beautiful than I ever could have envisioned! They provided a sample centerpiece appointment a few months before the event which was very helpful in planning, and they had great ideas for additions and enhancements to the décor.

Vito and the team at Carl Alan were wonderful to work with and provided absolutely gorgeous floral centerpieces and bouquets. They completely transformed the venue and everything was more beautiful than I ever could have envisioned! They provided a sample centerpiece appointment a few months before the event which was very helpful in planning, and they had great ideas for additions and enhancements to the décor. We would highly recommend! Read less

I visited a total of 6 florists before deciding on Carl Alan. They were by far the easiest and most seamless part of the wedding. Working with Vito and Carl Alan was like working with designer rather than just your average florist. But, they still offer a great value for the amazing quality that you receive. Vito listened to my vision and took it to the next level! The bridesmaid’s bouquets turned out amazing and beyond unique. The centerpieces received so many complements. I would highly recommend Carl Alan to any bride looking for more than just your average florist.

Vito was extremely helpful and easy to work with. He knew exactly what I wanted and how I expected it to look. He handled everything with ease and confidence which made things less stressful for me.
The paper lanterns that were hung over the dance floor at my reception looked amazing. My guests were snapping so many photos of the lanterns and still talking about them weeks later!

We just used them for our daughter's wedding this August. I cannot give enough kudos to Vito and everyone for the beautiful flowers and chupa they provided...absolutely stunning!!!! Vito worked within our budget and was able to give us a look that seemed as though we spent a whole lot more. I would highly recommend that you give him a call if you are looking for a florist for your special day.

Vito and Kathleen were absolutely wonderful to work with!! I had no idea what I wanted when I first went in to meet Vito. He then ended up making the most amazing centerpieces of candles and petals that matched the decor of the room at the Le Meridien Philadelphia perfectly!! We really could not have been happier with the way it all went together. Our colors were Tiffany Blue and Coral and Vito created full round bouquets with identical matches to our colors and everything was beautiful! Everything in the delivery was seamless as we got back from the salon and everything was already laid out for us! Thank you Thank you!!

Initially started working with Vito, who is awesome, on a proposal for my wedding at a Center City hotel. We worked through all the details and came up with a great design. As time progressed and expenses grew, I realized that I had to scale back - and big time. It was no problem at all. I did lose the opportunity to work with Vito but my other contacts at Carl Alan were great. They were flexible, understanding and let me make changes up to two weeks before my wedding. I ended up contracting them for my bouquet, boutonnieres, corsages for the mothers and grandmothers, chairs and some décor items. My bouquet was AMAZING! Even better that I imagined – and it lasted almost a full week after my wedding. Everything was great and I would definitely recommend Carl Alan. They lived up to their reputation.

Completely obsessed with Vito and his amazing team. Vito has an unparalleled eye for design and was able to create the most beautiful center pieces from a conversation based on my favorite colors, the theme of the wedding, and the venue. I had no idea it was possible to create something so breathtaking. I didn't think anything could top the centerpieces until I saw the bouquets. Vito and his team are so easy to work with and make the entire process stress free. Everything was perfect and beautiful and I am so happy we chose Carl Allen Floral Designs.

PS from the groom- Vito made my already stunning bride to be even more beautiful and he also perfectly matched the flowers to the groomsmens ties. The colors really popped and his flowers both at the church and at the reception were spot on.

In a word....AWESOME!

From the first meeting with Vito of Carl Alan Event Creations, he nailed my daughter's wedding floral idea. He was phenomenal! The theme of their wedding was peacocks and he chose an orchid immediately that was absolutely perfect as the "centerpiece" for all of his designs.

He was familiar with the venue - Knowlton Mansion - and this was helpful as well as he offered advice on what flowers we might need and also he told us where we did NOT need to decorate, which is appreciated - no attempt to oversell at all!

Their were two types of table centerpieces - both gorgeous - the guests were absolutely in awe of the ambience they were able to create in the room. Just perfectly the idea she had had in mind.

The bridal parties flowers were equally as beautiful. My daughter's bouquet was stunning as were the bridal attendants. They lasted wonderfully well for almost a week after the event! I only wish they would have lasted forever.

The designs are not inexpensive, nor overly costly, and they are well worth what you pay.

Vito has a gift, and his staff quietly and professionally set up a fairy tale room for the reception.

Thanks to all of you!

After visiting 4 other florist, I knew we had found our florist when my daughter loved every idea Vito from Carl Alan suggested. We both knew this was it and hired him on the spot! His pricing actually was in the middle of the five estimates we had gotten. He saved money by moving ceremony arrangements into the reception. Vito was great to work with and very creative. The arrangements for our ceremony and reception were elegant and beautiful. We would definitely recommend Carl Alan to all our friends.

Adam knew my taste from the moment I walked in the door and delivered and created flowers more beautiful than imaginable! Kathleen is the best at returning calls and emails, I have never met a vendor that responded so fast! Don't look anywhere else go in and meet with Carl Alan and his team!!!!

The first meeting I had at Carl Alan was with Adam, after a matter of 5 minutes of him talking to my mom, my bridesmaid and myself he had sized me up and my wedding theme exactly. He not only sized my personality and wedding up in 5 minutes, he spent the next 2 hours with us. He pulled books as well as sample flowers to show us what they would use. He wrote an extensive proposal so he very detailed notes of what I would looking for. He also explained that were willing to do what I wanted in any budget. They are willing to work with any bride with any budget. Their work are true masterpieces, pieces of art!!!!!!!!

We left our first meeting, my mom and I knew right then we did not need to go meet with any other florists. In those 2 hours Adam showed us and gave us the confidence that they would create the vision for my wedding exactly as how I envisioned it.

I have never met a business that is so prompt and flexible. Katherine is who I had met most of my contact with and so on top of everything. I had contacted several florist in the same week I first contacted Carl Alan, some never ever responded back at all, Katherine emailed back within 5 minutes. For the next year we received the same treatment. Every time something was updated or if we had a question we would send an email and have a response in the blink of an eye!

When we went in for our trail, it was so wonderful to see full centerpieces already set on a table just as they would be at my wedding! Any suggestion I had, right then and there he ran to get different flowers to make sure I was happy!

The day of the wedding my flowers showed up more beautiful than I could have even imagined. The size of the bridesmaid bouquets were like many bridal bouquets, they were breathtaking. All the flowers made me cry to delivery man! The centerpieces and my cake made me speechless. I look at pictures of them everyday, they were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined!!!!!!!!!!!

Our daughter's wedding was held on May 4, 2013 in Philadelphia. Everyone remarked about how beautiful and elegant the flowers and chuppah were. The comments included words such as "elegant", "beautiful", "sophisticated", "unusual", and
"magnificent"! Adam, our designer, was warm and comfortable to speak with during our many meetings. He worked extremely hard to be sure that our daughter's dream wedding vision was fulfilled. We must rate Adam a 5 plus in every category, as the quality of service, respnsiveness to our needs and professionalism were first class in every way. He has a very creative mind full of wonderful ideas to make a special presentation. Carl was also involved in our planning and very nice to deal with. We couldn't possibly be any happier with the truly superior job and attention to detail that Adam did for the wedding.

Vito & team are FABULOUS!! Vito worked with me from start to finish to design our bouquets and centerpieces based on a color scheme and a few Pinterest pictures. Once Vito learned I was open to different flower types and designs (I don't know much about flowers and I'm particular about color), his creativity started to flow and the outcome was absolutely stunning!!! I got so many compliments on the beatiful flowers and they really "popped" in pictures. Knowing I'm particular about colors, Vito even called me a few days before the wedding when our flowers came in to check to see if I wanted to swap out one of the flowers because they came in more purple than pink. Vito is amazing and Kathleen could not have been easier to work with for the invoices, paperwork, ect. I HIGHLY recommend them!

Most of all, the flowers themselves were beautiful - we got so many compliments, many of which were from perfect strangers! It really made us feel so beautiful and elegant and absolutely lovely!

Most of all, the flowers themselves were beautiful - we got so many compliments, many of which were from perfect strangers! It really made us feel so beautiful and elegant and absolutely lovely!

"Amazing!" "Breathtaking!"

Just a couple of the words used to describe the jaw-dropping centerpieces you created for my wedding! Vito & Kathleen were so wonderful to work with and made my winter wedding dreams come true through the fabulous floral arrangements.

Philadelphia Brides: do yourself a favor and leave the floral design to the Carl Alan Team - you won't be disappointed!!

I would absolutely recommend Carl Alan to any bride and groom! From our first meeting with them, they were attentive, creative, responsive, and professional, and we felt confident immediately that in working with Carl Alan we would get great service, breathtaking flowers and professional expertise, which is EXACTLY what we got! It was wonderful, as a bride, to be able to sit back and feel confident that they would deliver exactly what they promised, within budget and on time, and they did. Our consultations with our designer were some of the most fun meetings we had, and Vito immediately understood the look we were going for and made it happen. They worked within our budget, and were able to re-purpose some of our flowers from an centerpiece that we ended up not needing as a stunning decoration on our escort card table. The centerpieces were absolute show-stoppers, dramatic and beautiful, and were the talk of the reception, and my bouquet and my bridesmaids bouquets were absolutely gorgeous. We got a lot of positive feedback from our guests, and we were thrilled with the entire experience! Amazing quality flowers, incredibly creativity and artistry in the design, and 100% reliable service both beforehand and day-of. I would use them again in a second, and we are so grateful to Carl Alan for helping to make our wedding day so beautiful!!!

This vendor was very easy to work with. Kate, the customer contact, was highly responsive and flexible on options. She communicated with me about the order in appropriate detail and made adjustments as necessary. Vito, the designer is highly energetic, passionate about his work, creative and intuitive. He spent a significant amount of time with me hashing out my preferences.

Kate, Vito and the entire team at Carl Alan are outstanding! I found them to be super easy to work with and quick with responses to emails AND phone calls. I was wowed… constantly! During our first meeting with Vito I felt like he understood exactly what I wanted my dream flowers to look like. On the day of my wedding they brought the bouquets to the room I was getting ready in and I was shocked at how beautiful they were. The ballroom looked outstanding with the candle lit flowers on each table! They captured my dreams and made it a reality! The day of our wedding the mother of the groom’s flower broke while taking pictures prior to the ceremony. By the time we were back from pictures they had delivered a new corsage. The flower girl LOVED the petals, they were so soft! She also had a corsage which was just her size! I urge you to pick Carl Alan for your wedding. You will be beyond amazed with the results!

They offered great ideas and really helped me stay within the budget I had to work with, all while bringing my vision to life. I would highly recommend you check them out.

Working with Vito was so fun! He listened to my ideas and then brought in samples of the flowers I wanted. It was so much easier seeing it all put together and adding in his ideas. I had complete trust in him that my flowers would be exactly what I wanted. But they were a thousand times better when I saw the finished product. The price is reasonable, the staff is friendly, and Vito is awesome! I would use them again and again!!! PS- I was married 10 days ago and my bouquet, maid of honor bouquet, and spare boutinere are all still going strong in a vase!

One word, WOW! The entire team at Carl Alan exceeded all of my expectations!! I worked with Vito to create my vision. I love that Carl Alan brings you back in to see your centerpieces before your actual wedding day. During this appointment we were able to make some minor adjustments. When I walked into my reception, I was simply blown away. It was everything I had asked for and more! My bridal bouquet was also AMAZING! Everyone was complimenting it  I showed a picture of what I wanted to Vito and he and his team made it come to life (it was actually much better than the picture!) Thank you to Carl as well for being such a joy and Kathleen who was able to make sure all the administration details were correct. I can’t wait to get my professional photos and will be sure to spread the word to everyone about how great this floral design team is!! KUDOS and THANK YOU again for everything.

Where do I begin with all of the good things I want to say about Carl Alan Floral? I worked with Adam and he was awesome. He went above and beyond to implement my vision and to make sure that the flowers were perfect. He even gave me his cell number and did not even seem upset when I called him directly (by mistake) when he was on vacation…
It is rare to encounter a person who is so obviously passionate about his work, embraces a challenge, and then can exceed expectations. I had given him photos of bouquets and table arrangements that I loved and he was able to make them come to life, even sourcing the perfect ribbon and finding flower vendors to buy from in order to stay within my budget so they would still look fabulous. He’s extremely detail oriented and was willing to help me with whatever I needed. If you have the opportunity to work with Adam, go for it!
Another fantastic thing about working with Carl Alan Floral is that they make sample centerpieces. The day of the wedding, I was stunned because the actual arrangements looked even more fabulous than the samples.
The friendly delivery person (wish I could remember his name) for the personal flowers had to bring them to two different hotels. He arrived on time and everything was as requested, but even more beautiful than expected. My bouquet was so incredible that I wanted to find a way to preserve it.
Everyone at the wedding, from the photographer to the guests told us how beautiful the flowers were. Usually, when I’ve talked to my friends, mother, aunt, etc. about their wedding planning/outcome, their one complaint has usually been about their flowers not looking as they’d hoped. I can honestly say that my wedding flowers looked more beautiful than I could have possibly dreamed. Thank you so much to Carl Alan Floral and Adam for making everything so special and perfect- I really can’t thank you enough.

I had visited 2 other floral shops before I met with Carl Alan. I felt like the other 2 laughed at my flower budget. I appreciated the fact that Carl Alan listened to my estimate and then helped me pick flowers accordingly. The 3 hour consultation also helped me in finalizing my decision to go with them. They actually help you design your actual bouquets and centerpieces right then and you can still choose to not use them. I thought that was a very unique service I didnt find at other vendors. Everything we worked on during that consultation were exactly how they were presented the day of my wedding. I was very pleased with all my arrangements and it made my day that much better. Thanks!

Carl Alan, and especially Adam Saldutti, help create the elegant fairy tale wedding I had envisioned from day one. There are simply not enough words to describe just how amazing everything turned out. The first time Adam and I met, we "clicked" instantly. He knew exactly what I wanted, and made it happen. We brainstormed ideas back and forth, and referred to him with any design or color questions I had throughout the process. His talent, passion and knowledge are just a few of the amazing attributes he possesses. I felt totally at ease with him, and trusted all his choices, decisions and visions to help excute my dream wedding-which he did successfully!!! He was always looking out for the well-being of the bride and made me always feel as though this was-whatever I wanted to be happy. When I went to my showcase appointment, and I waited with my mom and sister (MOH) while he got my bouquet, it was only then that I burst into tears and the sheer perfection and beauty of my bouquet. I couldn't believe how he produced the exact vision I had without even describing all I wanted-it was that and more. Carl Alan not only made my dreams come true that day-but two other times before, at my Rehearsal Dinner and my Bridal Shower. They are a Philadelphia landmark to the industry-search no further than Carl Alan Ltd. <3 <3

From the very first consultation I felt as though I was their only client- and that they understood my vision for my Wedding. I worked with Vito and He took the time to understand the theme and the look & feel that I wanted my Wedding to have. During your first consultation Vito actually brought in fresh flowers and showed me the ideas we were discussing so I didn't have to imagine what I would be getting- it was right there in front of me. A few months before the Wedding he actually made our centerpieces to show us what they would look like. It was a great feeling to be able to view. Any worry I had about my Wedding Day Flowers vanished 2 months before the Wedding month had even arrived. Vito was always accessible whenever I called or had any questions. Everyone at Carl Alan was so nice and very responsive. It was awesome to work with someone who shared in the same level of excitement that I had for my Wedding. Vito and team really put their heart and soul into my Wedding. They know flowers and they get to know their clients' visions. On the day of the Wedding, they delivered all the flowers and Vito personally set up our reception. They also break down everything. Our bouquets arrived on time and everything arrived at the appropriate locations on time. Our bouquets were gorgeous and when I walked into my reception for the first time My jaw dropped at the sight of my centerpieces. They were even more beautiful then I had remembered and really tied in our theme and room perfectly. With all the stress that a Wedding entails, not having to worry about our florist was an amazing feeling. Out of all our vendors, I trusted them the most. They showed so much pride in their work and it really made an impact. I would recommend Carl Alan Designs to any Bride... 110%!

My floral arrangements were amazing! When I walked into the ballroom for the first time I cried because it was like everything that I tried to communicate to Adam of what I wanted for the last year was sitting on those tables and it was perfect, beyond perfect. Adam is the best! I am not the best communicator as I'm more visual and Adam just completely understood my vision. Everything down to our initials J & K on the back of our chairs to the size and style of my ceremony alter arrangements to the bouquets with the alphabet charms and my grooms photo pin on my bouquet, it was just so custom and perfect!

Carl Alan will be my florist for every event I have going forward!

I had met with other florists before hearing about Carl Alan and they were either cheap and under-qualified or extremely expensive and not so interested in what *I* wanted. A family friend suggested Carl Alan so really out of despiration I called - and I am so glad I did. My first meeting was with Adam and we just hit it off from there. Everything was exactly how they said it would be. They're honest, friendly, professional and so talented.

The Best, simply the Best. We made an appt. with them based on reviews here and from the moment we arrived for our consultation, they were the warmest, kindest people and so excited to be working with us on our daughter's wedding. Our daughter was living in Europe so was not able to come in herself until days before the wedding and Adam was truly wonderful every step of the way, skyping with her and keeping us informed, immediately responsive to phone calls and emails...I will also say Carl Alan Florist was very respectful of our budget and there was never any pressure put on us; they really treated us like family. And the flowers!!!! So creative, so absolutely beautiful...they took care of the setup for the outdoor ceremony and designed the most beautiful bouquets and THE CENTERPIECES !!!! My daughter loves watermelon and chose pink & green as her colors and you cannot believe Adam came up with the idea of centerpieces of carved watermelon with the loveliest arrangement; our guests LOVED them and the people who got to take them home were so thrilled, not to mention how happy our daughter was with them!!!! Adam was so happy to get a chance to be creative (and it had to be a lot of work to buy a dozen watermelons on a day when it was 93 degrees and all the preparation that went with this). A lovely experience all around. Book them today, you will never be sorry.

Carl Alan went above and beyond for me and my family from the moment I walked in the door! I was a bit apprehensive planning my wedding from LA, with essentially no time to stop by and view samples closer-in to the date, etc. However Cal put me in the able hands of Vito and we were able to accomplish so much in our initial consultation that my fears completely evaporated. Even though it was our first meeting, Vito was able to quickly understand my style and what I was looking for, and even created mock up centerpieces on the spot to show me his interpretation of what I was describing. The team was especially sensitive to and willing to work around my budget, which I really appreciated because I didn't feel "upsold" at all -- they were able to do more with less and still creative the luxurious, sophisticated look I was going for. The entire staff were also great at following up and dealing with my last minute changes, and I was blown away on the big day when my bouquet arrived, looking even more beautiful than I had imagined! Would highly recommend Carl Alan.

I can't even tell you how much I loved working with the team at Carl Alan on my flowers. Vito worked with my small flower budget and gave me gorgeous bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages, as well as a bouquet for the Blessed Mother. We also did two floral centerpieces for the parent tables. They held up fabulously in the heat, and I have one centerpiece on my coffee table right now that looks almost as good as it did Friday. My bouquet is also still holding up, along with my H's boutonniere! Plus, the staff (especially Kate) was so helpful and I love how everything turned out.

Vito at Carl Alan was one of my most favorite vendors to work with. From the day we met and he showed me his portfolio I knew he was talented and he did not let me down. I got so many compliments on my flowers on my wedding day. They were absolutely stunning. Vito was easy to work with and is immensely talented. He made everything look absolutely gorgous. I am definitely recommending Vito and Carl Alan to everyone I can. The best part: they give you a floral sample appiontment, so there are no suprises on your wedding day! They are the only florist I've ever heard of doing this!

Carl Alan is the best florist in Philadelphia. I had to change our ceremony place literally 8 hours before the event because it was the hottest day of the year. They were so on the ball with everything and decorated our ceremony space with exactly how I asked for it with literally hours notice. They added little additions that were perfect that I didn't even think about, that's how creative they were.
Everything was to the exact detail I envisioned! I would recommend him to every bride-to-be!

Look no further for a florist. Carl Alan exceeded every expectation that I had regarding flowers for both my wedding mass and reception. I still think about the bouquets. My reception was at the Four Seasons. We wanted a five star wedding, high end look by a florist who didn't rake us over the coals monetarily. We found it with Carl Alan. Don't bother shopping around - book Carl Alan immediately.

My daughter and I had a different concept for her wedding flowers and we looked for someone who could see our vision.
Adam at Carl Alan spent hours with us before we even signed on with them to assure us that he could do the best job.
He did! The bride and bridesmaids flowers were huge and so beautiful.
The reception centerpieces were so lovingly done that I felt I had done them myself. They were just exquisite. I can't say enough about the workmanship that went into making our concept come alive. Thank you!

At Carl Alan, when you schedule a consultation, they ask you what you are interested in and they make samples so you can see in person what your flowers are going to look like and how much it will all cost. They are extremely helpful with recommendations and working with your budget.

Our flowers were AMAZING!!! We loved everyone that we worked with during our planning process and we were blown away by how beautiful all of our flowers looked. Guests were amazed by our centerpieces and the ballroom looked spectacular!!

Carl Alan was so wonderful to work with! At our first consultation/"interview," my husband, father and I were floored with the knowledge, confidence and professionalism that Adam showed and we knew pretty much right away that he and Carl Alan were the right fit. They will put together samples for you so that you know what you will be getting and to listen to any ideas about making any changes. When the flowers showed up on our wedding day, they were even more beautiful than I remembered and we got SO many compliments on them. Carl, the owner, was also a pleasure to work with and we all enjoyed popping in to their workshop to speak with him. I hope that we get to use Carl Alan again in the future and I definitely urge all brides to schedule a meeting with them if you are looking for a florist who comes with peace of mind!! Thank you so much to everyone at Carl Alan for making our day so special!
Sincerely,
Ali & Chris Morris

We had originally decided to have our flowers for the ceremony and reception done by the florist at the Mt. Laurel, NJ Wegman's because we had seen beautiful photos from a wedding he had done at Cairnwood. However, after discussing what we envisioned for our wedding, Wegman's came back with a ridiculously priced quote that we simply could not afford, and even if we could, would not spend on flowers. In despair with only 6 weeks until our wedding, we contacted Carl Alan because of the wonderful reviews on weddingwire. We received a response almost immediately and were able to set up a meeting with Adam only a few days later. At our meeting, Adam immediately put me, my husband, and mom at ease. He reassured us that we could have the wedding we envisioned for a price within our budget, almost half of what Wegman's quoted us. Because of the time frame we were unable to come in and see samples but Adam made sure to send me a picture of a bridesmaid bouquet mock up two days before the wedding for me to approve before he proceeded to make all 7 bouquets. When the bouquets arrived at our house the day of the wedding I was beyond happy. The bridesmaids bouquets were gorgeous but my bridal bouquet was breathtaking. Unfortunately because of the humidity, the bridesmaids bouquets didn't hold up as well as I would have liked but there's not much you can do about the way flowers behave in certain weather conditions. The ceremony flowers were simple and elegant, perfect for an old church with stained glass windows. When I finally arrived at my reception at the Ballroom at the Ben I was ecstatic. The centerpieces were everything I imagined and more. Carl Alan's team did a fantastic job, especially for having such little notice and I am so grateful to Adam for all of his hard work. I could not have been happier with how everything looked. I highly recommend Carl Alan to anyone getting married in the Philly area.

Carl Alan Flowers are absolutely beyond gorgeous. Their prices are completely fair market and their value is beyond compare. Carl Alan begins by sitting down with you himself along with one of his designers and creates your actual flower pieces with you sitting there talking to him! They have you send in a questionaire and pictures of things you like so that they have a general idea of what you like and then build from there. Even after they built my flowers, they were completely flexible with me adding and changing items (within reason of course) to ensure that the flowers were exactly what I had in mind. They were so incredibly beautiful and elegant, I have been complimented by several people who have stated that our flowers were the most beautiful flowers they have ever seen!

Hands down, the best florist in Philadelphia with the most unique process. From start to finish, I knew I was in good hands.

During the initial consultation, I first met with Carl and discussed my visions --- types of centerpieces and numbers of each, types of bridesmaids bouquet and numbers, etc. He did some quick math and gave me an approximate cost and asked if that was around what I was expecting. That way, from the start, we could adjust my visions to my budget or vice versa. (To compare, I met with another florist who I said my budget is $X and she came back with a proposal that was $2X).

Next, we met with our designer, Adam. Carl and I explained my vision to Adam and also my budget and Carl told Adam to make it work. Adam and I spent the next 3 hours building my bouquet (which was to die for), my bridesmaids bouquets, and my centerpieces. When we were finished, he priced everything out by stem and realized we were slightly over budget. So he broke down some of the centerpieces and started over. When he had finished building and pricing that, I decided I really didn't love my "vision" after all, so we spent another hour and a half building and pricing new tall centerpieces. I left there with an exact quote and the confidence that my flowers would be exactly what I wanted (as they had taken photos and measurements, as well).


I had cascading long-stemmed calla lillies for my tall centerpieces, which we noticed at the consult had to be arranged just perfectly. So my wedding planner requested that Adam himself come to do the set-up (typically someone else would), and he did at no extra cost.

It was such a hands-on, fun experience - selecting your flowers from a number of choices - they show you the flowers and build your sample bouquet months in advance, so you know exactly what you will be getting the day of. All of the flowers were spectacular - and they are very willing to accommodate your budget. The team made this fun and very easy!

Working with the staff at Carl Alan, specifically Adam, was a wonderful experience! When my mom and I went in for our consultation and walked into a room full of yellow flowers chosen specifically for my wedding, we felt like royalty. We were blown away by the samples Adam was able to create for us. it was nice to know that what we saw during our consultation was what we would get on the day of the wedding.
They were willing to work within out budget and make centerpieces work double duty in the church and reception.
I received so many compliments on the flowers on the day of the wedding as well from those who have looked at our wedding album.
My husband and I are so happy with the quality of service we received from Carl Alan and we would recommend them for any bride and groom!

Carl Alan Creations went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to the floral arrangements for the wedding. They were very professional and informative when we were unsure of what we wanted. As you may know, floral choices can be overwelming but Adam from Carl Alan found a way to make it fun and exciting without the stress. During the whole wedding process (about one year) the bride changed her mind several times but this didn't bother Adam at all... He was very kind and understanding while giving different choices to encompass her new envision. In the end the wedding was a tremendous success! And of coarse the flowers where breathtaking! I give Carl Alan 5 stars for creating magnificent arrangements while providing excellent service.

Cal, Adam and everyone else at Carl Alan Floral Design are fantastic to work with. My flowers were amazing and I knew they would be because of how their consultation process works. When you go in for your consultation you actually create your centerpieces and bouquets right there. This is awesome because before you put out a penny you know your flowers will be exactly how you want them on your wedding day. That type of piece of mind is priceless. They also worked with our budget which some florists were not willing to do.

Flowers were one aspect of wedding planning I was not excited about... until my consultation with Adam from Carl Alan Floral Design. Adam totally respected my budget and gave me flower arrangements that I absolutely loved. This company went above and beyond to give me what I wanted. I felt like family by the end of the experience. Getting to work with Adam and Carl was one of my favorite parts of planning... who knew I could love flowers so much! I would whole-heartedly recommend this company to anyone.

Carl Alan Floral did the bouquet and boutonnières for our wedding, and we had an absolutely magnificent experience with them from beginning to end. When we met with Vito two weeks before the wedding (last minute!) to go over our needs, he was very open, honest, and a clear artist and professional. He was excited about our goals (an all white orchid set). Our centerpiece needs were much simpler, and he was honest when he told us if we didn’t want to spend too much, we might as well make them ourselves, as they can be made from cheaper materials from Ikea, etc, and we’d only be paying them for labor we could do ourselves in 20 minutes.

Carl Alan Floral did the bouquet and boutonnières for our wedding, and we had an absolutely magnificent experience with them from beginning to end. When we met with Vito two weeks before the wedding (last minute!) to go over our needs, he was very open, honest, and a clear artist and professional. He was excited about our goals (an all white orchid set). Our centerpiece needs were much simpler, and he was honest when he told us if we didn’t want to spend too much, we might as well make them ourselves, as they can be made from cheaper materials from Ikea, etc, and we’d only be paying them for labor we could do ourselves in 20 minutes. The orchid bouquet and boutonnière set was gorgeous, and everything arrived on time on the wedding day.

Carl Alan and his team came highly recommended to me. My mom and I planned a majority of the wedding and are not the most creative people; needless to say we were a bit apprehensive about the hand-on initial design experience for my bouquet and centerpieces. We ended up having the most amazing day with the team at Carl Alan-they helped us put together all of the arrangements for the big day. My mom was thrilled to see that we were actually seeing the flowers that were going to show up on the actual wedding day, and not just a visual image we had to imagine. They were so much fun and very creative and accomodating. Carl himself is very involved and personable. Our designer showed up to the venue the day of and everything turned out absolutely perfect. All of my arrangements were gorgeous and I couldn't be happier with my choice of florist designers. I highly recommend them to any bride!

There are not words enough to describe how thrilled I am with the flowers Carl Alan and his team provided at my wedding. I met with Carl unsure of what type of flowers I wanted, or even what color bouquets I wanted, but Carl assured me we would discuss and build the arrangements until I loved them. I didn't think it was possible for me to love flowers, but I definitely did by the time we were finished. The best part of using Carl Alan Floral Designs is that the team builds your bouquets and centerpieces then during your initial visit, so you know exactly what they'll look like on your wedding. That said, the actual bouquets, chuppah, and centerpieces were incredible beyond my expectations. They understood exactly what I wanted, and made it happen, but in a way so much more beautiful than I even thought possible. I recommend them without any reservations.

Carl Alan Floral Designs provided the most beautiful flowers for my daughter's wedding. The chuppah & aisle flowers were breathtaking. The ballroom looked amazing and everyone commented on the magnificent centerpieces. Carl & his staff were wonderful to work with & provided everything we asked for and more. They even stayed within my budget. I would recommend them to anyone.

We would highly recommend Carl Alan. The entire team was fantastic to work with. Our venue had recommended Carl Alan and said that they are one of the more reasonable florists they work with, so we decided to check them out. Then we found out the best part. Carl Alan asked us to send them pictures of all the flowers and arrangements we like, and they ordered all of the flowers in the pictures we sent for our appointment. By the time we left our appointment, we had designed our centerpieces, bridesmaid bouquets and bridal bouquet and seen everything in person.

Also, we live in Washington, DC, so we had limited time to meet with vendors, and Carl Alan agreed to meet with us on Christmas Eve – how’s that for dedication? We had a fixed idea of the maximum amount we wanted to spend, and we had met with a florist in the suburbs that didn’t understand our vision and didn’t think it would be possible to meet our budget. The appointment with the other florist involved putting dusty cloth flowers into a dirty cloth bowl… you might say it lacked vision. The team at Carl Alan worked with us to give suggestions on how to meet our budget and still have flowers that we would be very happy with, and the cost of the flowers came in under our budget. Cal Shaw, the owner, was amazing. As he said, it’s not how much money you can spend on flowers, it’s how much money you want to spend. His approach was very refreshing.

On wedding day, the flowers were incredible. Everyone told us how amazing the room looked. We could not have been happier, and we would recommend Carl Alan to anyone getting married anywhere remotely close to the Philadelphia area. They are hands down the best florist you can find, and it’s not typical at all to find a florist that will order all the flowers you like just for an appointment.

Everyone was extremely helpful at Carl Alan. We actually worked with Kate, who also did my sister's wedding, and she was amazing. They put together your bouquet, a bridesmaid bouquet, and a center piece so you see exactly what you are getting. Kate was very patient as we made a few adjustments and made sure everything was the way we wanted it. The day of the wedding, everything was delivered on time and looked gorgeous. The flowers were unbelievable and I couldn't have been happier. I absolutely loved my bouquet and everything else Carl Alan Designs did for me that day. We knew they would be wonderful from my sister's wedding, but I was blown away. They are incredible!

Carl Alan Creations, especially Kate and Adam, went above and beyond to make our wedding beautiful! They were so easy to work with, and made sure every detail was perfect the day of our wedding. I loved how we were able to make up our own centerpieces, bouquets, etc. so we were able to see exactly what everything was going to look like the day of our wedding. Other florists I visited only showed us pictures of what the flowers would look like.
The day before our wedding Adam called me to tell me they couldn't get the exact color of the middle of the lillies in my bouquet, but had found something similar. I had told him not to worry about it, and I was fine with the change. But an hour later he called me back to tell me they found the flower in Baltimore and they were on their way to get it. I couldn't believe they were going out of their way to get a few flowers!
The day of our wedding we had so many compliments!! The room looked absolutely beautiful! One guest said she wanted to have another wedding so she could use our florist! I would highly recommend Carl Alan.

We could not have been happier with our experience with Carl Alan. From the first meeting, Cal put us at ease by bringing our vision to life right in front of our eyes - something NO OTHER florist did! About a month before the wedding, I wanted to change some things, and in speaking with Cal's designers, felt fully confident to let them execute it. I couldn't believe what I saw on our wedding day - the room was even more beautiful than I had imagined. And our Chuppah was absolutely breathtaking. The designers even came up to my room to help fasten my grandmother's wedding band onto my bouquet, which was such a special touch that I will remember forever. What an absolute pleasure it was to work with them. You will LOVE your experience with Carl Alan Flowers!

Carl Alan is a staple in the Philadelphia Florist industry. I had various friends recommend them so I made an appointment to check them out. Prior to our consultation they had me send them pictures of flowers and colors that we were attracted to so they could bring in options for us to construct our own bouquets etc. right in their facilitiies. It was AWESOME! Shortly after our visit, they sent us a proposal pricing everything out. The experience taught us so much about the flowers were were interested in and they advised us to "shop around" and contact them if we wanted to proceed.

We did just that. We got 2 other estimates that were on the same range as theirs but the lack of professionalism and character of the others made our decision sooo easy.

Carl Alan was fantastic! They were so quick to respond to my various emails throughout the process and continuously paid mind to our predetermined budget.

The product was beautiful and the service and hospitality was unparallelled. There is no reason to shop around...Carl Alan is the best in the area!!!!

I loved working with Kate and the whole team at Carl Alan. I was probably a unique bride being that I had no idea what I was looking for or what my vision was. All I had were the colors of a gorgeous sunset from Santa Monica, California. My now husband and I went to Cal's workshop and watched as Kate and the team created our centerpieces and bouquets. As soon as Kate handed me the mock up of my bouquet, I knew we had found our florist. And on our wedding day, I knew what to expect, but had all expectations blown out of the water. Our flowers were gorgeous, from the bouquets to the corsages and boutonniere to the aisle arrangements to our reception. Gorgeous. I just looked at our wedding photos again and couldn't believe that those beautiful flowers were mine. Thank you again for taking my lack of vision and making it a reality!

I loved working with CARL ALAN FLORIST, they were so proffessional from the start, they showed me a mock up of my bouquet actually the way I envisioned in my mind, using real flowers, the same type that were to be used on my wedding day and for free it was so easy and they listened to everything I wanted, not what they wanted. I wanted My bridesmaid to have a specific color of hydrangeas, which they either didnt have or the flowers didnt come in that color, they sprayed white hydrangeas (which scared me at the sound of it) but it turned out beautiful! Fast forward to my wedding day, the only thing that wasn't perfect was when my flowers arrived my bridal bouquet was awesome! But I felt my bridesmaids bouquet to me looked like they had a bit of a blueish tint a little, assuming from the spray, but I didn't see that initially at my consultation, it wasn't distracting but being the bride of course I noticed it, other than that my experience with them was excellent.

We communicated with him and his wonderful staff via email before we met with him the first time, and then they ordered a bunch of flowers in the color palette that we were working with. When we got there for our appointment, we worked with his staff to design our arrangements based on our tastes and our budget. It was great to know exactly what we were getting the day of - something we wouldn't have gotten from the other places we had thought about going with. Carl Alan was our first and last stop, and the arrangements were BEAUTIFUL. We could not have asked for a better experience!

I can't say enough great things about Carl Alan. When I went to him for my wedding flowers, I had no idea what I was getting into. Right from the start, Carl was kind and enthusiastic. He spent a good amount of time helping me get my ideas created with examples of the gorgeous flowers in his shop. When I told him that I needed to decorate my mother's wheelchair, he was more than happy to give me suggestions and ideas. We also created the bridal bouquet, the bridesmaid bouquets, corsages, centerpieces, church flowers, flowers for the cake, front entrance arrangement, and details along the tables and bar area. The staff there is amazing. They made me feel incredible and calmed my nerves when I felt overwhelmed with the whole wedding process. They were patient with me and introduced incredible ideas and arrangements. They managed to take a stressful situation and turn it around to make me feel special. The day of the wedding was magical. Every arrangement, layout, and detail was perfect. I'm so grateful to have found Carl Alan Creations. Not only did they do an amazing job, they also were professional, friendly, enthusiastic, and kind, which made everything that much better. Thank you Carl Alan and staff!!

I am Type A, and after seeing the beautifiul bridal bouquet, bridesmaid bouquet and centerpiece at my first appointment, I was sold. They looked even better on my wedding day. Everything was perfect. The price was very reasonable, and they were very flexible throughout the process.

Carl Alan Florist was the perfect florist for my wedding at the Adventure Aquarium in Camden. They took my vision of orange and turquoise colored flowers to reality with the most amazing bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids. The initial visit was so personal as they began creating bouquets right in front of me to see exactly what my taste was. Thank you again for making my wedding day so special!

Outstanding, from start to finish!!! You will not regret your decision to work with Carl and his team. I met with about six florists, which is more than necessary, but flowers were extremely important to me. I met with the other florist before meeting with Carl, as he advised, so that I could compare what the other florist offered to what Carl offered. At my first meeting with Carl and his team, they put together free samples (I was happily surprised that I didn't have to pay anything!) of my bouquet, a bridesmaid's bouquet and a centerpiece. It took three tries to get my bouquet exactly the way I wanted but the designer was so patient with me. The other samples were perfect! Carl was able to work within the restraints of my budget and still give me exactly what I wanted at a price that I could afford. Even though my budget was in the $2,500 - $3,000 range, I still felt like a VIP client. Other vendors were definitely not as accommodating with my budget. I loved that I got to see my flowers the day before my wedding, so that I could make any last minute changes, I didn't but I still liked that I had the option. The designer that came to my wedding was so great, everything was perfect and seamless. The flowers photographed perfectly from the start of the event to the end. I am so happy I made the decision to work with Carl Alan!

We were SO happy with our flowers! The owner, Carl is awesome. He is really funny and made us feel so comfortable. The best part of this company is that you, the bride (and maybe groom) get to arrange your own flowers...you send them pics of what you like, then they order those flowers (free of charge to you!), then you go to their studio and tell them exactly what you want! They were very respectful of our budget, telling us honestly if what we liked would remain in our budget or not, and did not try to get us to spend more than we could and in the end we were thrilled with our flowers and we did not go one cent over. We met with Kate who put our "test arrangements" together and whom I contacted throughout the process....she is SUPER nice. This place is AWESOME! I would not recommend any other florist. Thanks Carl!!

They even let you help create your bouquet, centerpieces, etc, at your consultation. There was never any doubt that I chose the right florist.

I always heard that Carl Alan LTD did beautiful work but I got to findthat out for myself at our daughter's wedding this past weekend. Right from the first time I spoke with Cal I knew that we made the right decision. I can't begin to tell you how excited my daughter was when she was intrically involved in designing her own centerpieces and bouquets right down to the little flower girls hair comb. See, Cal has his brides work with "their" designer. It was wonderful. When we walked into our reception everything looked so beautiful. The centerpieces, the Chupah, the girls bouquets. All I can say is I don't like recommending any one for anything cause you just never know but I can say wholeheartedly that I feel very comfortable recommending Carl Alan LTD florists..Thanks Cal!

Carl and his team were SO fun to work with! They accomodated my schedule on pretty short notice; it was about 3 months before my wedding when I met with him the first time. After I sent some photos and a general description of what I liked by e-mail, we met with Carl and his staff a second time where they put together samples of our bouquets and centerpieces. Being able to see and hold them ahead of time was so great. Still, the versions they delivered on our wedding day, somehow were even better than the samples!

A friend had recommended Carl Alan to me, and I was not disappointed. On our first visit we met with Carl and he and his staff worked to create exactly what we wanted right in front of us with real flowers ordered ahead of time--no pictures or guessing needed which was awesome because I do not know flowers.
We were able to get bigger and better flowers than we ever thought we'd be able to afford (and from what we had been told at several NJ florists for our budget). The staff and Carl were accommodating, creative, honest, and easy to work with and on the big day the flowers were very beautiful. I wish I was getting married again just so I could see what else they could create for me!

I LOVE CARL ALAN FLORAL DESIGNS! I met with 3 florists, and Carl is the only one who sat and literally created my bouquet and centerpieces from scratch as I described my vision. The other florists, while very nice and professional, only listened to my thoughts. I had no way to see if they actually "got" what I wanted. Carl's designers sat with me for hours as we talked, flower by flower, through my vision. At the end of the first meeting, I had the complete bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, and centerpiece samples right in front of me--without my even signing a contract yet. He threw in a number of extras and gave me great ideas for saving money without looking like I was skimping. The day before the wedding, he had me come in to the shop to review all of my bouquets and centerpieces to make sure they were correct. The day of the wedding, the flowers were just as beautiful and looked exactly like the samples. I can't recommend Carl Alan enough!!

Carl Alan is AMAZING and definitely one of my favorite vendors! I had mentioned that I was interested in all white flowers, and when I got to my first meeting, Cal had a whole table full of all different types of beautiful white flowers. He and his assistants literally created my bouquet, my bridesmaids bouquets, and several different centerpieces until I found the 3 that I absolutely loved. It was so great to see that it was exactly what I wanted and I knew when I got to the wedding everything would be just as I expected. But it wasn't... Cal still managed to exceed my expectations, making my bouquets and centerpieces and everything even bigger and more beautiful than planned. He can also do pin spotting to spotlight each of your centerpieces, which really adds a dramatic and beautiful touch. I can't believe how many compliments I got on the flowers at the wedding. He also really works to make it fit into your budget! I would recommend Carl Alan to anyone!

Carl Alan provided the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets for the wedding as well as the groom and groomsmen boutineires, the flower girl petals and the centerpieces for the reception. The centerpieces always seem a little overpriced based on what you're ordering (though Carl Alan is no more overpriced than other florists we spoke to). They did help us figure out something with a more reasonable price that suited our venue perfectly. Also, I had to call them back because they didn't drop off many petals for the flower girl and within an hour they dropped off a HUGE case of petals, which was perfect. The bouquets turned out nicely. The hardest part for me was designing the bouquet since I had no idea what I wanted but in the end it came out beautifully. I would definitely recommend them - they're very responsive, have competitive prices and really do want to try to help you get what you want.

Vito did an amazing job for our wedding in June! He was the only florist we met with who really helped us visualize what we wanted - during the planning process he will walk you around the studio, showing you different flowers and arrangements. He had spent time going through my pinterest page beforehand and knew exactly my style and preferences - he even guessed exactly what my dress looked like!! He put together a sample centerpiece on the spot that we loved and that's when we knew we had to go with Carl Alan! The other great thing is that they will put together a full centerpiece sample for your a few months prior to the wedding. I will say the BEST thing that they did was send me pictures of all of the bouquets the Thursday before the wedding. My bouquet was perfect...still one of my favorite things about the day! I wasn't thrilled with some of the other bouquets, but I couldn't put my finger on why. Vito called me right away and was able to get to the bottom of what it was I didn't like within just a few minutes. He re-did all of the other bouquets, sent new pictures in about an hour and they were just fabulous!! Vito takes care of his brides and makes sure there are no surprises on the wedding day!! Thanks again to Carl Alan for helping us create a beautiful wedding day!

I was married at the end of September and I worked with Vito a couple of months before the wedding. My husband and I met with Vito in the office and we went through the different pictures that they had, found one we liked as a starting point and then modified it down to what was our vision.
I liked working with them because as someone who doesn't know flowers very well they were patient with us and gave us different ideas that would work with our colors as well as the overall look that we were going for.
When they were making the bouquets they noticed that one the flower that was noted in our contract was not the color that we were going for. They called to confirm and sent pictures. That flower color was not what I wanted and I would have been very upset if it was delivered that way. They made up bouquets with an alternate flower in the color that I wanted and sent pictures for me to confirm. All of the bouquets turned out how I wanted them.
Carl Alan worked with our venue and everything turned out beautifully. They even sent me to contact information for a place to preserve my bouquet when I asked them since they do not provide this service.
Overall I was very happy with Carl Alan and the staff there.

Although we spent a bit more than we had hoped, we got amazing flowers from Carl Alan, specifically Vito! The prices are not based on the bloom, but on the type of flower arrangement (e.g., a bridal bouquet is X dollars, a corsage is Y dollars), so we were able to pick out whatever bloom we wanted (obviously within reason) in our specific color. We live across the country, so we needed a florist who could work with us to create flower arrangements without a lot of in-person contact. We put a lot of faith in them and they totally delivered spectacular works of art. Everything arrived on time and there were even extra corsages/boutineers just in case something broke!

Vito was an absolute joy to work with; you could really see the passion he has for his job, which makes it all the more fun for the soon-to-be bride and groom. The blooms were stunning and he provided us with excellent advice for what would look good. Thanks Vito!

Carl Alan was honestly amazing! My flowers were so beautiful - more than I could have ever hoped for. I gave a 4.5 for value because to be honest, I didn't show around that much so I don't know if the price was high; flowers are expensive!! The quick responses and professionalism from Kathy and Vito made everything easy. I would definitely recommend them - Vito helped my vision come alive!!

Vito from Carl Alan did an AMAZING job with my flowers. He listened to all my ideas and made my vision come true on my wedding day! There is a consultation a couples months before the wedding so you can get a preview of the centerpieces and bouquets which I think is something unique to Carl Alan. All my guests gushed about how beautiful my flowers looked and they lasted for weeks after my wedding. All the bouquets were huge and definitely worth the money!

Working with Carl Alan was an absolute wonderful experience. When shopping for flowers, Carl Alan, was the only vendor that actually created the pieces in front of us. Working with Kate through email was a breeze and her response time and helpfulness could not have been better! I had second thoughts about my bridal bouquet and emailed Kate. She created a new one and sent me a picture which saved me time! I loved the second version! They were very creative and created the romantic vintage feeling that I wanted!! The deliveries were on time and I did not worry at all on the day of the wedding! My mom was not happy with her corsage (he said the flowers were too big and not suitable for her wrist). Overall, I was extremely happy!

Cal and his team at Carl Alan did a fantastic job for our August wedding. They handled everything from the flower arrangements, pin lighting and chivari chair rental. They transformed an already beautiful ballroom into something truly magical and extraordinary. And, they were responsive and accomodating throughout the whole planning process. My family is in the floral industry so we wanted our flowers to make a statement and Carl Alan delivered! Excellant work and so easy to work with! Highly recommended!

I met with a few florists before settling on Carl Alan. I knew he was a little pricey but after a bunch of bad meetings, it was so easy to choose. Before the first consultation (mine was a year in advance to see what flowers would be in season for my date), he asks you to send a list of your preferred flowers. Then when you meet with him they are there and ready to create sample arrangments. He was so easy to work with. His staff and himself are so creative and came up with wonderful ideas. It was great having pictures of exactly what I wanted so there was no surprises the day of the wedding. Also, I was comforted by the fact that in the contract he lists the number of flowers used in each arrangement and the diameter of each bouquet. He was great to work with on budget as well. I knew he was pricier than a lot of other places, but I told what I wanted to spend and he gave me everything I wanted. The flowers were in great condition and exactly what I expected them to be!

These guys are fantastic. We met with other florists who gave us the runaround on pricing and weren't very responsive. Carl Alan Florists were great. Your first appointment is like 3 hours long but you talk to Cal and figure out what you want. They didn't even want to know our budget until after he gave me an estimate of what he thought it would cost and then gave us cost-cutting tips even though his estimate was under our budget. After the sit down, you go into the work room and work with the floral designers to create your centerpieces, bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets. Simply amazing! No one else does this. No one. They were nothing but professional and leave no detail unturned. Simply fabulous to work with!

There are no mysteries here, nothing lost in translation. You will be able to see exactly what you get BEFORE you have to make a decision about whether to sign a contract. Cal and his staff put in as much time as you need to mock up everything during your intial meeting so that your vision and theirs become a beautiful reality. No one will force anything on you that you don't need or want, and they are willing to make it work for your budget. Bottom line -- lots of creativity and experience = great flowers and reliable service.

When it comes to finding vendors who you really feel like are working *for* you, with your best interests in mind, there's probably no one better than Vito and the Carl Alan team. We had a hard time getting the colors just right for our wedding but Vito and his team were patient and determined to give us what we wanted---and they always did it with a smile on their faces. They communicated really really well with us and they did an amazing job setting up at the venue. Overall, we were really pleased with their service and even more pleased with how much fun Vito was to work with!!

It was great being able to see the centerpieces in person prior to the wedding so I knew exactly what they would look like the day of the event. He also guided me to spend money on certain areas that were noticed by guests and save money in other areas. He was very honest and great to work with! Their front of house is also great and extremely responsive.

Many things went wrong on our wedding day, but the one thing that didn't was our flowers! Working with Adam was a treat.

We really had no vision when we came in, but he was so patient and helpful as we constructed our vision. He was also a gem handling my father, who is not the easiest person to deal with - especially when combining two things he is very protective of (his youngest daughter and his money!). Adam was amazing when we came back after we saw a sample and wanted to make some changes to it - he really went above and beyond. EVERYONE at the wedding complimented our flowers - we even had people taking pictures of them so they could recreate a similar piece for their family affairs!

The chuppah was the most romantic and beautiful structure I have seen. As I was standing under it, I remember thinking that I hope the photographer got a ton of photo's because I wanted to make sure I remembered all of the details forever!

We originally came to Adam because one of our friends used them and raved about working with Adam. Our friend had a very specific vision about her flowers and very high expectations, so I knew if she was happy, we would be happy - and we were!

Carl Alan let's YOU design your wedding flowers. Rather than telling a florist what kind of flowers you like and hoping that they understand your visions, Carl invites you into his shop and lets you pick out the combinations of flowers you like. Before you meet with Carl, you tell him what colors and flowers you like. Then, when you arrive, there are a wide range of flowers in many different colors and sizes for you to choose from. At the same time, his designers are in the room to help shape the flowers into beautiful bouquets and centerpieces.

On my wedding day, the flowers were just as we had designed together nearly 8 months earlier. Carl's team is skilled and professional. They were also flexible in that they changed the size of the centerpiece for me at the last minute. I was very grateful, and appreciated their accommodating us throughout.

We had a beautiful wedding thanks to Carl Alan! The best part which others have mentioned is that you actually make your own bouquets and centerpieces with them in person a few months before your wedding. You know exactly what you are going to get. We worked with Kate (for 4 hours) making the arrangements and they were beautiful. The best part was their pricing. They were $3,000 cheaper than the other florist we met with and they were located outside the city! The only downside on the cost was the huge delivery/set-up fees. They were much more than other florists fees but in the end we paid much less for the beautiful flower arrangements. By far, my husband and I agree this was the best bargain of our entire wedding. All of the flowers were gorgeous, the staff good to work with, and a great deal!

Loved our flowers from Carl Alan - We had the most beautiful tulips in April. There was a small mix-up on the wedding day and we were one mother's corsage short, but they made a new one and brought it over in less than 15 mins. I also appreciated that they put together mock-ups for us before we even signed a contract.

I would recommend Carl Alan to anyone looking to get married in the Philadelphia area. Even though I received lower estimates from some of the other florists I looked at, Carl Alan is the only florist in the area who is willing to make you samples of your centerpiece, bridal and bridesmaid bouquets - all before you sign your contract. I had sent them a collage of photos from online of flowers in my colors, and they ordered them all for my appointment. I was stunned. You get to work with one of their staff members to design your arrangements. It is fun! They then take pictures and you can come in the day before your wedding to look at the flowers and make sure they are consistent with what you ordered. There were a few things I wanted to change the day before my wedding, and they were happy to make the changes I wanted. The flowers were beautiful and I received many compliments on them. As there are many things that go not exactly as planned on your wedding day, it was nice to have one thing that could be controlled. If you are a control freak, they are the florist for you. They are also super nice, responsive and Carl made some great cost-saving suggestions to work with my budget. I highly recommend them!

The team at Carl Alan is great. I met with over ten florists before choosing this vendor. I wanted classic, beautiful flowers that reflected the overall style of my wedding. Cal, Kate, and the entire team exceeded my expectations with their level of service, talent, and prompt replies. My mom, dad, and I spent a few hours at the shop while they created mock ups for us. They tweaked everything till it was exactly what my mom and I had envisioned. All of the guests raved about the flowers at the wedding. Carl Alan is definitely not the cheapest florist out there, but for the care and quality of product that they deliver, they are worth the cost.

I loved my flowers from Carl Allen. We got bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, a corsage for the mother of the bride, and boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen, ring bearers, and fathers. They were all lovely, and I liked how the boutonnieres were different for the groom and the ring bearers. I worked with Kathleen, who listened to my description of what I did and did not want, and helped me shape a bouquet from there, even utilizing pinterest to help design the perfect arrangement. My wedding was on a Sunday, which is not a normal operating day for them, but they were able to have them there and ready for my brother to pick up, leaving them with the building guard when we weren't able to get to them before people had to leave for the day.

We used Carl Alan for our July 28, 2012 wedding. We worked with Vito who was fantastic. He understood exactly what I was saying, and listened to every word. Before we met with him for the first time we filled out a questionairre. When we got to that first meeting he had already ordered flowers based on my responses in my questionairre so that he could show me what he was thinking. It was great! And at the final meeting when he showed us our centerpieces he was very receptive to what we were saying. He gave his honest opinions in every situation. On the day of the wedding he wasn't there unfortunately but his colleagues delivered everything in a timely manner. I was very happy with how everything turned out. We went with an elegant, vintage, traditional themed wedding and the flowers fit the theme perfectly. I definitely recommend them and think that their price is reasonable whereas a lot of other florists in Philly are so much more expensive and you don't get the quality. Highly recommend.

I am so glad that I used Carl Alan for my wedding! The flowers were absolutely beautiful and everyone kept talking about them weeks after the wedding! The design staff were more than helpful, and even emailed me pictures of two different bridesmaid bouquet options about a week before the wedding because they knew I was having a hard time choosing what accent flower to use and couldn't make it it in to the store. The set up crew was fabulous too! We had a handmade chuppah (a quilt) that we wanted hung under the chuppah frame so it looked down on us. We had a meeting to figure it out and they did a better job then we even imagined! Then they set it up in the cocktail room, surrounded by the chuppah flowers so all the guests could look at it! They really went above and beyond to make everything beautiful! I gave 4 stars for professionalism because Carl talks ALOT and tells ALOT of stories which can go on for ever and take up a lot of time. If you are in a rush, it can be frustrating. Regardless, he was a lovely man and him and his team made the wedding so beautiful and stress free.

I ordered 5 bouquets (including bridal), two large decorative pieces for the ceremony, 8 pew decorators for the ceremony, runner for the ceremony, fathers' boutonnieres, toss bouquet (free), and petals for flower girl (free). The floral pieces were truly STUNNING. There's really no other word for describe just how beautiful the flowers were.. We worked with Heather, who was very eager and helpful and treated the day like it's her wedding day. Carl Alan Designs is very open to repurposing your flowers from ceremony to the reception as well. They're also very good with changing your contract even until two weeks before the wedding.

The only trouble we had was the price. We couldn't afford the centerpieces because we only budgeted a certain amount for flowers. So I ended up doing all centerpieces as DIY projects. But I know centerpieces by a vendor is always costly so I wouldn't say Carl Alan Designs is overpriced, it just didn't fit our personal budget.

Vito and his team did a fantastic job on our wedding. The flowers were beautiful, the chuppah was perfectly draped and when I looked around at everything I cried. It was really gorgeous. I was trying to DIY a lot of pieces and Vito was very accommodating in making that work within his designs. I even shifted gears last minute on the table arrangements and they made it work. They were nice to deal with which was number one when it came to choosing a florist for me.

Vito was our floral specialist. he was able to translate our ideas into reality. he saw our vision for our wedding, he is not only a florist but is a talented interior designer. he will table scape your tables at your venue and will make it look amazing. the bouquets were gorgeous. even when there were some changes that needed to be made the day before, Vito was very accommodating. I even had to add more flowers for the flower girls on the day of the wedding and Vito and his staff was more than happy to accommodate us.

The flowers were absolutely gorgeous, but the price was high. Perhaps they aren't far off the mark from other florists, but I was really surprised by the high cost. We got one brides bouquet, two junior bridesmaids bouquets, 7 corsages and 7 boutonnieres, with the total cost being 1000 (this did not include delivery). Maybe that's on par, but I couldn't believe it. However, the flowers were beautiful, so we got what we paid for!

I loved working with Carl Alan Event Creations. They made the process of picking out all the florals for the wedding a fun experience. I worked with Vito mostly. He's very nice, has an artistic eye, and you can tell he loves his job. The only downfall I'd say is that this company can be a little pricey, but if you tell them your budget they are willing to accommodate. They create beautiful pieces and I was very happy with how everything turned out the day of except for our center pieces; in which they didn't place the floating candles we were promised in each of the centerpieces at the tables. I would recommend other brides to check out this vendor!

Carl Alan Florist was the second florist that I went to for my wedding flowers. After the first appointment with a sweet woman who seemed slightly flighty, I was nervous that my flowers would never make it to the wedding. So, I met with Vito. Vito won me over very quickly with his excitement, knowledge, and personality. I told him what I was looking for in a bouquet and he gave me some really great suggestions. He was very agreeable and confident that my flowers would be just what I wanted. There were 2 very important things that I wanted on my wedding day: I wanted my bouquet to look more like wild flowers, NOT uniform and I wanted the men to wear a pocket boutonniere. I had seen this on the other florists website first and looked online for some other pics of this. I loved it because it was not the same old thing that men wear. Anyway, Vito told me he had also done that type of boutonniere before and assured me it would be great. I left excited. On my wedding day, however, my bouquet was delivered and was a very neat and uniform arrangement - not wild like at all. AND, the mens boutonnieres were just plain old pin ons. Not at all what we had discussed. When I called Vito to inform him that they were incorrect, he told me that the pocket boutonniere was "a pinterest idea gone bad" and that it wouldn't have worked. I know it was something that could be done because it had been done at the other florist. The thing that made me most mad about it was, if Vito didn't think it was something that would work why did he tell me he could do it? And, I didn't appreciate the way he just blew it off on the phone on the day of my wedding. Of course I was stuck then so I guess it didn't matter. Now, the flowers were still all beautiful and everybody loved them. No one knew that they were not what I wanted - except me. I still would recommend Carl Alan but I would just suggest that you don't have a vision already in mind. What you'll get will be beautiful.
