Carol was recommended to us by our wedding coordinator, and we were very glad that we got to work with her for our big day! Carol worked closely with us to design arrangements that would be the perfect accents to our venue, attire, and decor. She carefully studied our color palette, our invitations, my dress, and the inspiration images that I sent her and produced a collection of gorgeous bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and church decorations that beautifully complimented our vision for our wedding. At our request, she incorporated irises (as a nod to my name) into my bouquet and the aisle arrangements and made sure to exclude any flowers to which I'm allergic (of which, unfortunately, there is a rather long list!). She also was wonderful about accommodating our limited budget and last-minute changes to our order and very sweetly made lots of helpful suggestions about types of flowers to include, shapes of arrangements, ribbon colors, even what kinds of other decorations we'd want in the church in addition to the flowers that she was providing (at her suggestion, we ended up purchasing two ornamental trees to stand behind the altar, which ended up creating a lovely vignette). Carol is sweet, professional, down to earth, and hugely talented. She knows what is "in" in the world of wedding florals but also has an eye for classic, timeless design and has the experience and the skill to balance these two elements in order to deliver beautiful results. She was an enormous pleasure to work with and we would heartily recommend her to anyone looking for a Bay Area florist for their wedding.

This is a long overdue review that I should have done since the wedding. Carol was referred me by my wedding coordinator. Carol is one of the best vendor that I worked with during my wedding planning and she just made my planning so much easier and her expertise and suggestions were so helpful. I used one of the flower arrangement that I saw and showed her how I want it. She made it even better and more beautiful than the sample that I showed. I just love her so much that friendship and the suggestions that she made not only for the wedding flower also for the wedding ceremony setup. I would totally 110% recommend her.

My husband and I used Carol for our wedding this past Labor Day weekend and were very happy with how everything turned out. With very little thought and planning done on our part before our initial meeting, Carol managed to turn our jumbled mess of thoughts and obvious lack of preparation into a beautifully thought out collection of floral decoration ideas. From the arch design to the centerpieces to the bouquets and boutonnieres, everything looked individually lovely and charming in their own right, but also wonderfully coordinated from a big picture perspective.

With respect to our personal interactions, Carol was also always very prompt in returning emails and phone calls and always did so with a friendly and cheerful spirit. During our two meetings, she was very laidback and made sure to ask about any ideas we had, but also helped guide us towards a final design with a bunch of her own ideas when it was clearly needed. For anyone reading this, there should be no doubt that Carol knows what she's doing when it comes to floral design and that you will be in good hands if you choose to work with her.

After interviewing 4 other florists in the area and being seriously underwhelmed with all of them, Carol was a breath of fresh air. She is AMAZING. Not only is she super friendly and extremely prompt in returning emails and phone calls, she is incredibly talented at what she does and very reasonably priced.

Carol designed the flowers for my wedding this past Memorial Day weekend and I could not have been happier with the result. She listened to what I wanted and was able to enhance it to be more than I ever imagined it could have been. I received tons of compliments on both my bouquet and the arrangements - everyone loved her work. Looking back through my photos, I keep noticing small details of how she tied everything together to create a wonderfully cohesive overall display.

All in all, I LOVED working with Carol and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone who asked.

I love love loved working with Carol. She is an extremely talented artist who is very knowledgeable about flowers. I visited her in her studio and she patiently went through a bunch of wedding magazine and some of her own photos albums to get an idea of what I wanted for my wedding. A few weeks before the wedding, she arranged for me to come into her studio to show me a sample of my bouquet, samples of my bridesmaids bouquets, and the center flower arrangements for the table. It was a great relief to know that the flower decor was in such good hands. Thank you, Carol!!

I found Carol on another website when my fiance talked me out of doing my own flowers. She was amazing because I kept changing my mind about the colors I wanted and what flowers to use. She worked with me on budget and took off the added stress I would have had if I had done the flowers myself. She was so easy to work with and it was great because I was planning the wedding from out of state. She even placed the flowers on the cake for us and it was perfect. I can't say how happy I was with everything she did. She hit the design and look that I wanted perfectly. You'll love working with her, we did.

Carol Ralles of Design With Flowers was wonderful to work with. We really had no idea what kind of flowers we wanted to have at the wedding, except we didn't want roses. We do not have green thumbs, so we truly went into this blind. But, Carol was great. She was able to come up with some beautiful ideas from our telephone conversations and emails. She really had a great vision for our wedding. We were able to meet with her before the wedding to look at some sample centerpieces and bouquets. The first samples were gorgeous, but we did make some adjustments, and Carol had a plethora of ideas. She did not even charge us for the samples. She was always prompt in her responses to emails, and much to my comfort, she got in touch with me a few days beforehand to make sure everything was ready to go. She arrived on time at the venue and worked with the caterers (Continental Caterer) and venue site coordinator to get everything ready. The final result was exactly what I had envisioned and the flowers were stunning. They lasted for a week after the wedding! And she provided boxes so that my guests could more easily transport the flowers home. The prices are very reasonable and Carol is very efficient.

I found Carol on Yelp and she's just such a gem! She did my wedding flowers, and throughout the process she's professional, very friendly, efficient, and clearly has a talent for what she does. If you are looking for a trustworthy florist with great taste and minimum stress, you should definitely give her a try.

For our first meeting, I told her that I couldn't meet in her office because of my schedule. She not only agreed to meet in a coffee shop in downtown Mountain View, but also brought a whole box of magazines and prints so as to brainstorm with me. We sipped coffee and had a good chuckle while talking over my wedding flower design together.

Following up, she did a sample trial to show me a few bouquets to make sure that her work captures my vision - and I was so happy to see the result. Those flowers look amazing and exactly like how I have dreamed my wedding flowers to be.

On my wedding day, she showed up perfectly on time, got everything set up and done very quickly. She even stayed to make sure the bouquet works well with the table arrangements of my caterer.

Carol has a gentle and warm personality, and full load of talent. I really liked working with her and would recommend her to any of my friends!

j had found design with flowers/carol on yelp and am so so glad i went with her. she is awesome! i was originally thinking i could do my own flowers because i wanted to save money but in the end i decided to find someone priced reasonably. save myself some headache and stress

i actually talked to about 4 florists. carol and i just connected. she saw what i saw and had the same vision in mind that i did. when i first went to meet her i loved the diversity in her portfolio. she had also already executed some of the ideas that i had in mind. she was not too technical as some other florists were. she just speaks normal language. another florist i talked to was very opinionated saying that i could use carnations to keep costs down and i should use white paper lanterns so it would photograph better. in the end i found carol easy to work with and easy going. did i mention reasonably priced?

when we went in for some samples i was happy with what she came up with. we delivered some jars we had been collecting for the centerpiece vessels to save some money.

the day of she delivered the flowers on time to our hotel. i loved them. there were corsages for our moms, bouts for the guys, bouquets for the girls and a flower garland for my dog! all of them were perfect in size and quality.

when i got to the venue she was still there setting up! i was in awe of what she had done! the colorful centerpieces looked even better than the samples did. the garland she created for the arbor was just what i had in mind. so beautiful! i wish i could've taken it home. then the aisle. i had wanted gerber daisies fading from red to pink to white and she did just that! i loved it! i was so happy!

i would confidently and gladly recommend carol to anyone! she is just that awesome!
