I'm so happy we decided to have Ellen and her team design our floral arrangements for our wedding! Our meeting/consultation with her was detailed and she really took the time to understand what we wanted.

Before we met Ellen, we had a few meetings with other florists. Ellen, by far, was the most personable. She was the only one that didn't give me a weird look when I told her about my color combinations. I love bold colors and Ellen managed to create beautiful arrangements without making the colors look tacky.

Not only is Ellen talented but her pricing is very fair and she always responded to my emails promptly, answering all my questions.

Save yourself some time and pick Gingerleaf - you won't be disappointed!

I was introduced to Gingerleaf Floral through my wedding planner and am so happy to have worked with them. Ellen and her staff are all such a pleasure to work with! Ellen takes the time to meet with you and really try and understand your vision and bring it to life. The flowers turned out better than I ever could've imagined!! Very happy to have had them be a part of my big day:)

From the moment I met Ellen at her studio I knew she was a professional and had a lot of experience with weddings. I had to fill out a questionnaire so she could gain a better understanding of my vision and mood and then about a week later she sent me a whole outline of the type of flowers, colors, designs we could use for our wedding. I was very impressed!

We went back and forth a few times to ensure we were both on the same page and every time I emailed her she was quick to respond. I had absolutely no worries when working with her.

On the day of the wedding I was so impressed at how quick her and her team were to set everything up and the flowers were gorgeous! We used a lot of the flowers the following day at a after party we had and they looked so fresh! The flowers lasted a long time so it was nice to have them around the house.

I would highly recommend Gingerleaf Floral to anyone who wants beautiful flowers at a very reasonable price. Ellen is professional, attentive, easy to work with and overall just knows what she is doing.

Thanks Ellen for making our wedding so gorgeous!

Ellen previously did flowers for a wedding for a friend when I was part of his wedding party. She had a very nice setup and was a great help to his wedding. For our wedding, we also went with her as well. As expected, she did a great job and created beautiful flower arrangements for our wedding. Would definitely recommend to all of my friends (already have).

Ellen was an absolute joy to work with. I had no idea what I wanted for my wedding, but with her help and guidance, she came up with a clear vision that matched my style perfectly. She worked very closely with me to stay in my budget – for instance, she was very creative in helping transform our arch arrangement into a head-table centerpiece. She was always available to answer my questions and provide any clarification. Ellen is truly an artist! Her designs are so clean, and the flowers are stunning and lasted forever. Our centerpieces were used again at our day-after brunch and still looked great. I would highly recommend Ellen and Gingerleaf floral for all you wedding and event floral needs!

Ellen created the centerpieces and bouquet for my wedding. Since I was planning the event from across the country, I needed someone who I could trust, understood what I was looking for, and was reliable and responsive. Ellen went above and beyond - we never once spoke in person or on the phone (though she would have been more than happy to do so!), simply because everything went so smoothly and she was so responsive via email that I knew I was in good hands. She created two mockups instead of just one, and while they were not exactly what I had imagined, after providing her with some feedback and finetuning the design, just a couple of days later she gets back to me with photos of the most beautiful centerpiece that was precisely what I had envisioned. I would highly recommend her to anyone, and especially to those who are looking for a reliable, stress-free and talented florist for any occasion!

I can't say enough about Ellen Kim and her work with Gingerleaf Floral. Ellen provided exquisite arrangements and bouquets for my daughter's wedding with exactly the flowers, design and way that my daughter wanted. We worked closely with Ellen and she was attentive, responsive, knowledgeable, and professional in all that she did. Ellen provided beautiful wrist corsages for the MOB and MOG, great boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen, and beautiful bouquets for the bridesmaid and bride. The church and reception arrangements were perfect in size and design. Ellen really knows what she is doing and is a great person and easy to work with. We highly recommend her.

I met Ellen for the first time in her home office which was as warm and inviting as she was. We wanted natural, organic arrangements centered around succulents. Ellen was able to add her modern aesthetic to our request and create the most beautiful wedding bouquet, centerpieces, garlands, corsages, and boutonnieres. We received so many compliments!!! She was able to take our vision for a fun family event and create the right vibe for our big day with her amazing work. Throughout the planning process, Ellen was always available and willing to find creative ways to work with both our budget and vision. We’d both highly recommend Ellen and Gingerleaf Floral.

Ellen and her team did a fantastic job with the floral arrangement for our wedding. She worked with us to come up with a great arrangement that is within budget. She was thoughtful on suggestions and came up with a great set of alternatives if a specific flower wasn't available / in season. The end result speaks for itself. It was definitely a grand experience and a pleasure working with her.

I cannot say enough great things about Ellen and her work (so be prepared for a long review!). I am a total freak for order and organization and upon her first response to my initial inquiry, Ellen was a dream come true. She responded with a detailed PDF proposal outlining potential blooms, pricing for each centerpiece, bouquet, etc. - whereas the other florists I'd reached out to responded with a rough quote via email. This type of professionalism and organization hit the nail on the head for me. Not to mention Ellen's prices were favorable over the other vendors.

After meeting with Ellen and talking her through our "vision" (which I'll admit was shoddy at best) Ellen was able to help us come up with a cohesive floral theme that made sense for our tastes. Throughout our planning process and over the next 8 months, Ellen kept in constant contact with me -- providing me with examples of arrangements and also to just "check in" to make sure I was holding up while I was planning our wedding sans planner. Ellen always made me feel like I was her number one client and that she genuinely cared about making my wedding exactly what I wanted it to be.

On the day of the wedding I took one look at the bouquets and I nearly cried -- they were PERFECT. I have never seen any more beautiful or more spot on with what I wanted. My bouquet was so stunning I never wanted to put it down - not the mentions the bridesmaids bouquets were the perfect compliment - lush and absolutely gorgeous. The centerpieces were, again, more than I could have ever imagined -- the venue looked spectacular thanks to Ellen's spectacular work. Ellen also set up centerpiece mirrors and votives on each table (free of charge!) that we delivered to her ahead of time, which took a huge load of responsibility off of our shoulders. I took more pictures of the flowers than of anything else combined!

I would recommend Ellen to any and everyone needing flowers for their wedding or any other event!
