Alison de Wit and her team were amazing! We didn't set much direction, and instead favored flowers that were locally sourced and organic, and the results were beautiful. Everyone raved about the flowers. Alison was easy to work with, and her team found last minute hair flowers for me too.

Deciding on the floral service for my daughter's wedding was hard...until I found Distinctive Floral Designs. They came highly recommended, they were very familiar with the wedding venue and made me feel like they understood what I wanted even though I don't know anything about flowers, my daughter lived in a different city and I wasn't sure how to communicate the vision that we had for the wedding but somehow they interpreted it perfectly. I gave them our wishful budget and they submitted a proposal that we could work with. I went back to them to tweak the proposal a couple of times before my daughter gave me the green light to sign with them and throughout the whole process these two wonderful ladies were an absolute pleasure to work with: they listened, they were responsive, accommodating, patient, very professional and, on a personal note, thoughtful and classy. We asked them to prepare a centerpiece for the tasting with the caterer and that confirmed that we had made the right choice – It is hard visualizing the floral décor based on the description on paper – but we arrived and saw the centerpiece prepared by Distinctive Floral Designs and I heard my daughter say "it is perfect…". There was no need to change, add or take away anything. I always knew that they would deliver beautiful, romantic, delicate and elegant floral decor but I was still in awe when I saw everything come together the day of the wedding. I was asked by several guests about the name of our florist and I was very proud to say that it was Distinctive Floral Designs. They have incredible talent, excellent people skills and I consider myself very fortunate that our paths crossed. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect floral decor.

My entire experience with Ula and Distinctive Floral Design was wonderful. During the interview process, Ula provided various professional photo books displaying their experience and versatility. I have very little experience with floral design, and I was getting lost in Pinterest. Everything looked beautiful but I couldn't explain the styles I liked. Ula was very helpful with this and of course helped picked individual flowers. I had done some research before meeting with her and printed out photos of flowers I liked. Ula was great giving honest feedback, when things wouldn't work the way I was thinking.

Once I made my decisions, I was able to order a mock-up of the table arrangement to see it live and I thought this was a nice service. Although I loved 95% of the arrangement, Ula took my feedback and provided suggestions to finalize the floral decisions.

The day-of the wedding, Ula arrived right on time to decorate and was so patient with us while waiting out the rain. She helped me get a timeline together for when we would have to make a decision about moving the ceremony inside. In the end, the rain stopped and Ula was able to set-up a fantastic eucalyptus garland with two wreaths to top the wine barrels. They were everything I had hoped and more. My bouquet was so beautiful, when she brought it up to the bridal suite it really helped me realize that my wedding day was really here.

If I could relive my wedding day again, I'd do it all the same and Distinctive Floral Design would provide fantastic service and quality products. If I ever have another event that needs floral design in the future, this is the first place I will call. This will also be the only floral vendor I will ever recommend to my friends and family. I am so grateful for their wonderful work making our wedding the best day of our lives!

First, Alison did a fabulous job for my daughter's wedding last May. Everything was perfect--the floral arrangements for the tables including a stunning head table, the bridal bouquet, the bridesmaids' bouquets, the fabulous flower draped urns placed on either side of the outside altar, the beautiful, classic vases. Alison's assistants did a wonderful job setting up, very professional and everything was done to perfection.

Second, Alison was a delight to work with. She understood our vision very, very well, and executed it magnificently. It was a bit challenging for Alison as she primarily worked with me, using my daughter's pinterest board, but then had to meet my daughter's very exacting requirements. The end result was breathtakingly beautiful.

Third, given that flowers can significantly add to the total cost of a wedding(especially since gorgeous flowers were very important to us), I found her estimates were the most reasonable of 6 vendors that I worked with. One highly recommended vendor, who said he thought he could provide the florals within my budget, went $2000 over budget. The same thing happened with another vendor, who subsequently was willing to make adjustments. However, it makes one wonder about the original estimates, and whether they were inflated. Another vendor, who came within budget planned to use a considerable portion of the budget for having someone at the wedding to ensure there were no missing flowers, etc. This would have resulted in significantly reduced quality and quantity of flowers.

In sum, Alison was fantastic, and I am thrilled that I had the opportunity to work with her; the outcome was fabulous.

Alison de Wit at Distinctive Floral Designs was a pleasure to work with! I had only a general idea of what I wanted for my wedding and but she took the time really drill down and find out my likes and dislikes. She came back with a proposal that was exactly what I was looking for (it's like she was reading my mind) and within my budget. On the night of my wedding, I was beyond thrilled with the way everything turned out! It was absolutely stunning! Thank you, Alison.

Mrs. Alison De Wit, the owner of the of the Distinctive Floral Designs is the most amazing individual I have ever met, she made me feel so special and bonded with me on a personal level, I felt she genuinely cared about me as an individual and then as a customer. She talked to me to find out what I look for, in flowers, and how I feel about various “blooms.” She worked with me diligently to stay within my budget without sacrificing quality and beauty of our “blooms”. Alison and her team of artists produced the most amazing flower arrangements one could ever imagine. My bouquet looked so beautiful and I loved it as it was fit for a queen. My wedding day turned out to be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and breeze/wind. Her ingenious delivery crew figured out a way to keep the flowers and the décor from flying out with the wind. I believe I made a friend for the rest of my days and I would highly recommend her services to anyone I know and love since I want to spread the wealth of getting to know Mrs. Alison De Wit.

As the mother of the bride, it was important to me to meet my daughter's expectations. As the wife of the father of the bride, it was up to me not to give him a heart attack. When my daughter said she wanted a wall of flowers just like Kanye and Kim had at their wedding, panic arose. When Alison gave us her best cost on a scaled down version (which was much less than I had expected but still way too much money to spend on a single item), I asked Alison for an alternative and boy did she deliver.... at a fraction of the cost ... but with the same amount of flair and impact as that wall of flowers at the Kardashian/West wedding. Alison and her staff were a pleasure to work with. Their enthusiasm and attention to details brought everything together, making one bride extremely happy along with her parents!
