Karen was absolutley the BEST florist I could have chosen for my daughter's wedding; however, when you choose Karen as your florist you also are obtaining a wedding coordinator and a pivotal team member to ensure that your wedding vision becomes reality.

My daughter and I met with Karen several times at the wedding site-Silverado Resort in Napa. We shared our vision and some pictures. She insantly understood the theme we wanted and was so patient and calm as the mother of the bride and bride worked through- well you know .... mother and daughter discussions!

Karen met with me at La Tavola linens and helped me choose the perfect linens. I was able to rely on her to ensure that the linen and chair rentals were correct and delivered on time, etc.

Karen was at the resort on Saturday night at 8:00 pm (before the wedding on Sunday morning) to assist with set up... now is this a duty of a florist? No, but there she was working away and making it a fun night.

Karen and her team arrived Sunday morning bright and early and words cannot express the beauty she created. The flowers were magnificent, original, and everything my daughter and I dreamed them to be... We had requested long, wooden boxes for some of the flower arrangement containers. Since she did not have those and they do not exist as a rental supply, her husband made the boxes and even whitewashed them to match the decor... now that is personal service.

It was obvious from the beginning that Karen was truly invested in creating a beautiful wedding decor and because of her talents, kindness, and hard work she helped achieve a dream wedding!

I could go on and on... everyone at the wedding commented on the flowers and everyone who met Karen fell in love with her! I am a very detailed and well demanding person when it comes to planning events and entertaining...Karen met my standards and beyond!

it was gorgeous and sophisticated. it's also not too overdone. if she were a makeup artist, she would probably be French and make everyone look beautiful yet natural.

Karen was outstanding! Flowers were not as important to my husband as they were to me. He wanted to make sure we stayed within "the wedding planner budget guidelines". Karen was more than willing to work with us unlike other Napa vendors. I knew specific flowers that I was interested in having and was pretty particular with the look I was going for. Karen was always honest with me from the beginning, letting me know which flowers were in season and the cost associated with the flowers I was choosing. If they were out of budget, she made recommendations of similiar flowers. I was nervous about how the flower bouquets and arraingements would turn out since it was the first time seeing them. When Karen showed up to my suite with the bridal bouquets, I was BLOWN AWAY! They were so beautiful, I was brought to tears. I had doubts that the arraingments were going to be beautiful and they were. She went above and beyond what I ever expected. Our guests kept commenting on how beautiful our centerpieces were.

Karen Brown did an amazing job with the floral design and arrangement of our wedding. I gave her a basic idea of what I wanted and she took that idea and made it a thousand times better than we even could have imagined. Everything was executed perfectly and she had a lot of attention to detail. We received so many compliments on the flowers. She made our wedding a dream come true!

Karen Brown is a step above the rest! She has an exceptional flair and a fabulous eye which is reflected in her designs. Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous, all framed in her beautiful arrangements. We knew what we wanted, and couldn't possibly have been more pleased!
Karen is a true professional! You can count on her, and she most likely will surprise you by going out of her way to give you more than you paid for! Our guests just gasped walking into the dining room! Kusdos to Karen! We hope you are lucky enough to be able to book her!

My experience with Karen was good.

I was late to the floral game and only needed personal floral (bouquets/boutonnieres) -- I didn't use her for centerpieces, so I cannot speak to decor floral. She did delivered what was asked of her, within the budget and within the contract requirements. Overall, I'd say she is very professional. I also liked that she was willing to work with me, within my budget to meet my needs and tell me my options. I also liked that she works well over email and phone. I actually never met her in person because it was a destination wedding, however, we were able to get everything sorted out via email.

The bouquets and boutonnieres looked a little limp, but overall were nice. The perked up in water once they were delivered. I was pleased and got a lot of compliments on my bouquet.

Karen does say she is not the cheapest and won't be, so keep that in mind. I paid around $900 for personal floral and one garland.

We had a wedding to plan in 3 months. Karen did a wonderful job in helping pull things together on short notice. She was very flexible and helped recommend flowers in season.

We were working on a budget and we wished we had more time to shop around, but since we were on a deadline, most floral design places were booked. In comparing notes with my friend who got married around the same time, we did end ups spending more for what we got. We wanted to make sure that our friends were able to take home the table arrangements. Some florists will automatically price that in the quote, but we realized towards the end of negotiating it was not included. As a result we had to cut down the size of the floral arrangement to make room for cost of the vase.

Overall I would recommend Karen's services.
