Karen of Nature's Alley did an absolutely fantastic job at our wedding for a fraction of the price quoted to us by other florists. She really listened to what I wanted (sunflowers and burgundy dahlias), and she didn't try to add in a lot of other expensive things that I didn't want. I ran out of energy to make a lot of detailed decisions, so I just gave her a general idea and told her to use her judgement. And am I glad I did! Everything looked even more beautiful than I could have imagined. For example, we wanted flowers on our cake, and she suggested dahlias but no sunflowers because apparently it's hard to get organic sunflowers and you probably don't want a bunch of pesticides on your cake. I never would have known that! In addition, she rented us the arch that we used for the ceremony, set it up, decorated it with flowers, took it away, coordinated all of this with the venue for us, provided packing materials for our guests to take home centerpieces, and let us borrow baskets for our ushers for free!

Karen at Nature's Alley was incredible to work with. I met with other florists, who managed to make me feel badly about what I could get with my limited budget. Karen was very creative and made a lot of suggestions on what we could work with to design beautiful wedding bouquets. I could not have been happier with the results and would highly recommend anyone to work with Karen and Nature's Alley.

Karen was a wonderfully helpful and creative contributor to my big day. She has great taste, and gently pushed back against ideas I had that wouldn't work, while catching my vision over all. Everyone exclaimed with delight when she brought the bouquets to the church. She very generously worked with my budget. I highly highly recommend her!

Karen was one of my favorite vendors. She knew which flowers to suggest for my color scheme (red, pink and gold) and she was the most down to earth vendor. As a former nurse, she truly loves to put flowers together to make people happy, and isn't what I would call a typical "wedding vendor" attempting to make a fortune off of your wedding budget. And, she makes it her business to personally deliver the flowers, and pin boutonnieres on the groom and groomsmen.
I highly recommend Karen's services. The flowers were really beautiful and she carried out the vision of what I was looking for perfectly and in a way I couldn't have imagined.

I used to buy flowers at Nature's Alley because I lived in the neighborhood. Then a colleague's wedding used Karen's services, so a few years later, I decided to try her out. I found that Karen is very flexible with a couple's budget. She with work within your limits. My fiance, who usually played the "budget bad guy", attended a meeting & requested that we somehow use the flowers for the archway in our centerpieces. With 15 tables, our centerpieces were the most costly factor in our floral budget. She quickly thought of placing the flower blossoms in shallow bowls of water, so that we could reuse them and nix the entire centerpiece cost.
Our flowers were mostly Gerbera daisies and dahlias, which were cheaper than roses and orchids but much more colorful. I was surprised by how massive my bridal bouquet was (Karen really when all out), and on the evening of the wedding, a handful of guests complimented the flower colors and color combinations of the bridal party & flower colors.

Note: Dahlias wilt quickly. The groomsmen boutonnieres were looking pretty sad halfway through the evening. It could have been the heat (July wedding) or their fragility. Beware.

Karen was very professional, kind, and enthusiastic. She came in person to put the flowers on the attendants, and even hugged me as she handed off my bouquet. She made great recommendations for the flowers when we described our desired palette. The bouquets and centerpieces were rather small, but she stayed within our budget and maximized using the size and color of the flowers.

Karen was wonderful! She and her staff were very enthusiastic about our wedding, and she was very focussed every time we met. She only does one wedding per day, so she's available to help pin on all the bouttiniers and corsages, and make last minute changes from pinned to wrist corsages.
