The good:
Emily Thompson's work is undeniably beautiful. I ordered my bridal and MOH bouquets, boutonnieres, family corsages, decorative bud vases, 2 medium floral arrangements, and cake blooms and every arrangement was artful and unique. Guests commented all night on how great the flowers looked, and I honestly couldn't have been happier with the design.

The not-so-good:
Communication was spotty throughout the process. The sales associate I worked with was sometimes slow to answer email, and I had to remind her to send me a revised final invoice after requesting it a week prior.

The bad:
I requested that all personals be delivered to our hotel and the rest of the flowers be sent to the venue for setup. When they arrived, we were missing a couple boutonnieres and family corsages - less than an hour before pictures were supposed to start! The boutonnieres and corsages also looked pretty similar and were not labeled, so we had to lay them out to figure out which ones we were missing.

My sister called the shop and they said they were being delivered to the venue with our venue flowers. This was never decided or even discussed during our delivery planning! Luckily the rest of the flowers arrived just in time for pictures, but the botched delivery made an already hectic time unnecessarily stressful. Worst of all, I never received an apology of any kind - they simply cashed my final payment check without another word about the incident. I understand that mistakes happen, but it's downright bad customer service to not follow up after that kind of an error.

I hate to give a sour review to a talented designer, but when you're paying top dollar for flowers you should be receiving top quality service along with them. The flowers were gorgeous but I can't recommend them based on how poorly the delivery was handled. There are plenty of other vendors in Brooklyn with great flowers and customer service at a better price point.

Emily Thompson is a magician, and she made our wedding look truly magical. For starters, she is a lovely person, with a highly responsive team, and she was very easy to work with. She is not low budget (she did decorate the White House for Christmas, after all), but in the world of wedding flowers, she was the only one of about 12 florists with whom I met who was willing to work with my budget ($5000) in creative ways without demanding that we spend more money. And honestly, her work was worth every penny, as our wedding was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. She is an artist as well as a florist, and she went beyond normal floral arrangements and instead designed the entire space, so that it worked as a cohesive whole. She made the most dramatic chuppah I have ever seen, with massive moss-covered branches and draped fabric, and our guests were awed. She thought of tiny things, like little sprigs of twigs and leaves in each individual napkin, which really made a difference. And her design for the centerpieces was incredible. We had a winter wedding, and her concept was to make the tables look like romantic still life paintings. She used silver bowls overflowing with fruit, vases of flowers, and fruit draped across the table, with tons of candles, and the room literally glowed. She was a very calm presence on the wedding day and got everything set up with plenty of time to spare. And finally, we had discussed providing paper bags for the guests to take the fruit home with them, but I decided it was outside the budget; on the wedding day, she brought the bags anyway, and everyone got to take part of the centerpiece home as a favor! Working with Emily was a wonderful experience, and I still can't believe, looking at the photos, that her centerpieces were at my wedding and not in a museum.

Beautiful, minimalist flowers for a small, carriage-house wedding with thirty guests. Her designs worked perfectly with the simple, exposed brick decor, namely, many glass bud vases with small flowers plus a gigantic wreath on the wall to set the tone. Her suggestions, perfectly well-envisioned and operationalized. Some negotiation was necessary for them to pick up materials after the event, but in the end Emily and her staff came through and were gracious along the way.

Emily Thompson provided not only my bouquet and florals for the bridal party, but also decorated my wedding cake with fresh flowers and fruit! She's got incredible style and an eye for creating very organic and not overly styled arrangements. If budget permitted I would have loved to have her do my table decor as I have no doubt that would've been the coolest thing any wedding guests have ever seen!

Emily was just wonderful to work with, from the planning stages right through the event. She worked with us extensively to find just the right look and feel for our wedding while respecting our budget every step of the way. Don't look any further - Emily is simply fantastic!
