From our first meeting, we know Laura was our florist! We knew that we wanted a vintage vibe and had an idea of what we were looking for but, we definitely needed her expertise to guide us. It was so much fun brainstorming with Laura to come up with ideas for the centerpieces and bouquets. She made appropriate suggestions, never trying to upsell. I felt totally comfortable with her recommendations.
The day of wedding proved to be amazing! Everything was perfect and beyond my expectations. My bouquet was stunning and I had so many compliments. The centerpieces were gorgeous and unique. My guest couldn't stop talking about them. In fact, there was fierce competition to take them home!
I have read that some brides feel they should have spent less on flowers. I felt it was worth every penny!

Working with Laura was incredibly easy and comfortable from the start. Initially I really wasn't sure what I wanted and threw out some ideas. Laura listened carefully and provided her own suggestions. At our second meeting I had a better idea of what I was looking for and had my own suggestions, some of which were not great, and I was happy and appreciative of her honesty in what she thought would and would not work. As I became more clear in my vision, Laura continued to listen and work to apply it. The end result was beautiful. I was in love with the bouquets and table settings which included both flowers and pillar candles. Whether you have a strong vision, or none at all, I would highly recommend Laura Clare Designs. She may very well be the kindest and easiest vendors you will work with!

Laura did an AMAZING job for our wedding this past weekend!!

We met with a few florists, mostly in NYC, before we decided to go with Laura (our wedding was in NJ anyway). The city florists all asked for our budget first, and said things like "well, we may not be able to do this or that." However, from our first meeting with Laura, she was spitting out even MORE ideas for us. She had a similar vision for our wedding centerpieces, and once we told her our budget, she was able to work with it right away. Even when things didn't go as planned for us (more tables than we anticipated), Laura was able to work it out for us so that we would still be within our budget.

She was very easy to get along with, but we didn't even need to spend that much time with her because she made it very easy for us. We met for the first time to go over ideas, and met one more time for her to show us a mock set up of the tables. We wanted to go with the winter theme with blooming quince branches with white flowers. One of the florist in NYC (who received great reviews!) told us that February is not in season for quince and that he may be able to get us pink flowers instead of white flowers--but that wasn't what we wanted. Laura made it happen for us, and on the day of the wedding, I was absolutely floored with how beautiful the centerpieces were. She promised me most of the buds on the branches would bloom and they did! It was so beautiful, and it was EXACTLY what I had in mind. The guests all loved the centerpieces and couldn't wait to take some of the flowers home.

I would definitely recommend having Laura as your florist. If by first meeting, you feel like she understands your vision, then put your full trust in her because she did an amazing job. She's very reasonably priced, and willing to work with you to make sure you stay within budget, but still have your dream centerpieces. It was an absolute pleasure to have her as our vendor, we can't thank her enough for her hard work!

When my mom and I first met with Laura for our consultation, I knew right away that Laura understood my vision. I brought a lot of pictures for inspiration, but with Laura’s experience and expertise, I didn’t even need the pictures! She knew exactly the ambiance I wanted to create and had so many amazing ideas that I would have never thought of myself. Floral design was something that was really important to me and I remember walking into the ballroom on my wedding day and could not have been happier with Laura’s flawless execution. Everything that we discussed was perfectly arranged and beyond anything I ever imagined! So many people commented on our centerpieces and I forgot to mention that the bouquets (both mine and my bridesmaids) were also beautiful and so unique. Laura is truly an artist and amazing at what she does. I highly recommend choosing her for your big day. Not only was she so easy and nice to work with, but she will go above and beyond your expectations to ensure your wedding flowers are perfect!

There are not enough good things that can be said about Laura and our wedding flowers! She was a pleasure to work with, and always so calm in what can sometimes be a stressful time. Laura was truly amazing -- she took the time to really understand what we wanted our wedding to look and feel like, and perfectly translated our vision into breathtaking floral arrangements! Our guests were amazed when they arrived and blown away by the flowers (I think we even heard "oooh-ing" and "aaaah-ing!"). We could not have been happier! Thank you!

I absolutely loved working with Laura as our florist. Right away, she got what I was looking for, even though I was describing things in far less than technical terms. She added such incredible texture to our flowers and non-floral elements and was really able to turn what I originally pictured into something breathtaking!!!

Yup, best decision I ever made! Can't go wrong when you work with Laura. As I mentioned in some of my WW reviews, my wedding preps were manic as I was moving from London to be with my future husband. I contacted Laura while still in London and first visited her about 2 weeks before the big day (!!). I had an idea of what I wanted the decor to be like, but all we did was exchange a few emails. To my surprise the proposal I got from Laura was spot on! I think I raved about it to my friends and family for a couple of weeks. I wanted to use some of my own props and decorations and Laura was more than happy to accommodate; this also helped bring my total cost down. The big day decor was perfect; I wanted modest rustic decorations with elements of blue and the final result was stunning. I couldn't part with my centerpieces so I took them home to decorate our place. Our bouquets were beautiful and I am drying them out as keepsakes! :) The groom and his party were well impressed with the boutonnieres they got, made out of thistle and herbs...my dad-in law preserved his! Laura made the process so incredibly easy for me; she answered all of my questions and offered solutions. All this was done during the pre-Christmas madness which was a busy period for her salon. I consider myself very lucky to have met Laura, can't thank you enough! :)

I am very satisfied with my experience with Laura Clare, Floral Design & Event Decor. We had a small wedding of under 50 people at the Olde Mill Inn and, from our first meeting, Laura made me feel that my wedding was just as important as her large wedding parties. You can see that she has a "spark" for what she does, not just the traditional arrangements, with the same old flowers. While being enthusiastic, creative and artistic, she is also well organized, budget conscious, and detail oriented. If you are interested in something different, she has a lot of suggestions that you can use or not... I appreciated hearing about all the options, within my budget! I was open to having some non traditional touches, so Laura incorporated dried leaves in vibrant fall colors in the cocktail hour arrangements, purple kale and berries in the centerpieces, and white kale "roses" in the bouquet. I still can't believe how many pictures of the table arrangements were posted on facebook the next day! Everyone was raving about all of the flowers. If you are thinking of checking out Laura Clare for your wedding or event, I would encourage you to do so! You won't regret it, I know I didn't!

I would like to share with everybody how wonderful job Laura did with the flower arrangements for my wedding. I always dreamed to have small, intimate, romantic wedding and flowers to be the reflection of it. I asked Laura to create flower arrangements in ivory and pink shades to bring my plan to life. She did absolutely amazing job. My bouquet was just beautiful. Laura used a few kinds of roses, hydrangea, dahlias. My mom, who I always considered as a person with a great taste but at the same time very difficult to impress with anything, was thrilled when she saw the flowers Laura made for me.
Laura is a very easy, friendly, calm ( I believe very important quality in this stressful time) person to work with. She is open to listen to your ideas and ready to make your dreams come true. She also stayed on budget which was very important for me. If you are looking for somebody to create something beautiful for reasonable money, you found the right person in Laura.

I have only the nicest things to say about Laura Clare and her beautiful floral work. If I could recommend her to every single bride out there, I would. She was absolutely incredible, nailing every single detail we discussed, and going above and beyond to satisfy our wedding vision. She worked within our budget, and she produced the most beautiful centerpieces we had ever seen. Even though we had been planning our wedding for over two years, three months prior to our wedding date, our venue closed. We scrambled to find a new space, and once we did, we had to revision all of the floral work to match the new venue. Laura helped us every step of the way. She really went above and beyond to make our day special and create floral pieces to remember. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone.
