Emily was a dream to work with! I was planning our wedding from another state, but Emily was so patient - she spent a lot of time with me on the phone to hear our ideas, and was so responsive to emails. She understood our vision perfectly and the flowers turned out better than I could have imagined! She was totally willing to work within our budget and everything was so beautiful!

Her flowers were absolutely perfect and she was a joy to work with from start to finish. She had lots of great ideas about decor which were so helpful. I always felt like she was happy to help me pull the look of the wedding together. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

I LOVED working with Emily and would highly recommend using her as the florist for any wedding. She was truly a pleasure to work with and created arrangements and bouquets that were prettier than any of the sample pictures I found online!

Long story short, a year before my wedding I booked a different florist. After months of no contact, no contract, difficulty getting in touch with them, I decided to find a new florist to work with. I am soo glad I did! Emily was incredibly accommodating and agreed to take on my wedding (which was not small!) with only a few months notice.

I am a type A, organized individual and really appreciated being able to count on Emily and not have to give my flowers a second thought or worry. I live in CA and she made the planning so easy for me through her timely emails and a couple short conference calls. As I love flowers but don't know too much about them, she made wonderful recommendations based on the other decor of my wedding. She was even so detailed to asked what type of white ribbon my bouquet should include to match my dress. This was a detail that I would have ever known to think about!

The flowers were delivered to the ceremony and reception site on time and really looked beautiful. I only wish I had had more time to fully appreciate them!

Emily has a true gift and eye for design. Ever since I first saw her work, I knew that I wanted Emily to be my wedding florist but I had no idea what a true pleasure it would be to work with her. From our first meeting I knew that this wasn’t just going to be about which flowers we wanted to have. She helped me with EVERYTHING! From what color ties would look best on the guys to how to incorporate a new color that I wanted in the eleventh hour. Through everything Emily was always quick to respond, easy to talk to and super flexible and cheerful. Simply a delight to work with and the results were perfection! I could have never pulled everything together so perfectly without Emily!

The flowers Emily did for our wedding were absolutely stunning! When she brought the bridal bouquets into our room I almost started crying because I couldnt believe how beautiful they were! She was such a great person to work with, she always answered all of our questions right away, and was so nice when it came to my indecisiveness. I could not have imagined more gorgeous flowers for our wedding day!

Emily was very helpful in picking out flowers. She also listened to what we wanted and swapped out some of her own ideas to fit what we liked.

Pricing was a little higher than we'd like but we weren't really looking to spend a lot on flowers in general and everywhere the prices seemed a bit steep.

In the end our centerpieces were very nice, a little plain but we cut a lot of costs there. The bridesmaids flowers were gorgeous; I was a little disappointed in my own bouquest because there was one particular yellow flower that I thought didn't really look good with the rest. But otherwise the bouquets were well put together and very pretty.

My husband's pinned on flower was pretty but the backing to it was a huge green leaf that was way too overpowering. I wish we had some visuals beforehand to have seen what she planned to do so we could have told her we wanted it to be smaller.

All in all Emily did a nice job and knows her flowers; we wish we would have had more than just descriptions to go by for what our final products would be (it was hard to picture since we don't know a lot about flowers, even with Emily doing her best to describe them). Emily herself was responsive and nice to work with.

Emily Carter Floral Designs responded with the following comments:

I am truly sorry that your experience was not 5 out of 5 stars. That is all that I strive for with my business and will certainly take all of this into consideration and follow up more privately as well. I did want to address a few things in the review that were concerning to me. I would love to look through an image of your bouquet as there were no yellow elements present within it. Ivory, as was within your estimate, but I just want to make sure that I am clear on the dislike. Also, I know that the gardenia was selected by you and your mother for very personal reasons for your now husband. I had made mention that as a bout., it is such an unhearty flower, but I would do what was within my power to have it hold up to hugs and all that the day would bring. :)The backing is a gardenia backing (which we had chatted about me doing everything in my power to ensure that it holds up to the best of my ability) and there was no other complementing accent wanted. Once again, I just want to make sure that I am clear in the dislike and that my companies reasoning and history of the process was clear. I also believe that we went through an image board of the flowers that were included so aside from doing a paid sample prior, there is not much that a florist can do. I do know that flower names are like a foreign language which is why I go as far as to do the image board to explain what flowers are going where within your wedding. I am so sorry that these actions that I take were not enough to make your experience completely wonderful. I do have grave concerns about the feedback given and would love to chat more in depth as based on the consultations that we had, revisions of the estimates that we went through and feedback the day of upon delivery by myself, I was under the impression that ECFD has been a wonderful addition to your day. I am so sorry that you felt otherwise and would love to chat to determine what went wrong. Please feel free to call me at 207-865-4021.

Emily did a beautiful job with our floral arrangements. She was very knowledgeable about what would be blooming and beautiful for our particular time of the year, offering many suggestions for colors and style. She was easy to get ahold of, easy to work with, and I felt at ease the day of the wedding knowing that all of the floral arrangements would be spectacular (and they were beyond my expectations!).

Emily provided the personal flowers for the brides, bridesmaids, and mothers, as well as the ceremony flowers. Emily sat down with me and discussed my vision. As a person who knows nothing about flowers, she showed examples and explained her ideas thoroughly. Emily was respectful of the fact that my mother and sister wanted to do some of the arrangements (centerpieces, boutonnieres). She periodically checked in with me about how things were going and any changes that might have come up.

When all of a sudden our venue was moved inside because of rain, her team transformed the barn into a fall wonderland that looked like it stepped out of the page of a magazine. As a result, the day was more perfect than I could have imagined.
