I met with Gretchen at Petals, ink. following the recommendation of a friend who had hired her for her own wedding. I'm so glad that I followed her advice! I am totally NOT a flower person- I can name about 10 different flowers, so I didn't have a great idea of what I wanted my flowers to look like beyond a few pictures on Pinterest. But a short questionnaire and meeting later, Gretchen was magically able to come up with a proposal that perfectly captured the theme that I struggled to express myself. Our original proposal included bouquets/boutonnières, centerpieces (2 different designs!), some aisle decorations, and an arrangement to hang on our ceremony arch. Closer to the wedding, I added a couple more little pieces, and it was no issue at all. Gretchen even went out of her way to make sure that the cake arrangement she was making would fit the specific plate we would be displaying our cake on.

Although the proposal included the names of flowers and the general feel that they would follow, I didn't quite know what it would look like until the day of the wedding. When I arrived at the venue, I was greeted by arrangements that were more perfect than I ever could have imagined. I was gushing about the flowers all evening (and for days after!). I should also note that Gretchen had to separate the arch piece at the last minute into two different arrangements (our hand-made arch was a little too wobbly for comfort), and this was done flawlessly.

Overall, I couldn't be more thrilled about how everything turned out, and Gretchen was a dream vendor to work with. I wish I could get married again just to have more flowers done by Petals, ink.!

I was in love with Gretchen's work before I got married from blogs and Instagram. When the question of florist came to mind, it was no doubt I would pick Petals, ink.

After describing what we imagined and our budget, she did a phenomenal job delivering. On the day of, the venue changed their arch and we had to switch from an outdoor to indoor ceremony, but she was flexible and tried to make the venue as beautiful as possible with our adaptations. Her and husband Ben was professional, easy to talk to, and prompt to email. I would recommend them to everyone and anyone!

Before our wedding, my husband and I were about as green to wedding planning as you can get. None of our family members (women or men) were willing to help us with planning and I was actually finishing up graduate school in another state. After we booked our venue, I quickly scoured the reviews on The Knot and fell in love with the arrangement photos of Petals Ink.

I contacted Gretchen about getting an estimate and she was very patient with us and gave us different price ranges to figure out our floral budget. We ended up going with the higher amount and are absolutely pleased with our decision.

Everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful the arrangements were that day. Our photographer was floored by the decor and professionalism by Petals Ink. By showing Gretchen images that I collected from the internet, she and Ben went above and beyond what my husband and I envisioned for our special day. Throughout the entire process, both kept us up to date with any changes/details.

Gretchen and Ben are incredibly professional and talented individuals. We highly recommend them for any floral creations on your special day. You will not be disappointed!

Gretchen is absolutely fabulous. Beginning with one rambling email of ideas and a few pictures, Gretchen was able to design exactly what I had in mind for our flowers. She is incredibly responsive through the whole design process and has a knack for translating ideas into beautiful design. Her arrangements are truly art and full of in-season, locally grown (sometimes in her own garden!) flowers. Ben was equally great to work with throughout the process and very helpful each time I made a change to our order (last minute addition of boutonnieres, cake flowers, changing the number of tables, and so on). They are a great team and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Ben and Gretchen with Petals Ink did such an amazing job with the flowers for our wedding. I met with them for a consultation and I felt that Gretchen got my vibe right away. I showed her a Pinterest board with my flower inspiration and they nailed it. Everything looked so beautiful. They were both very flexible when we had planned my ceremony arrangement one way and then had to change it at the last minute because of rain. The revised arrangement looked amazing and no one ever knew that wasn't the original plan. I highly recommend them if you are looking for very down to earth people that will listen to your ideas and then design them in a way that looks more beautiful than you could have imagined.

Gretchen did an amazing job on the flowers for our wedding! I felt really good rapport with Gretchen when we had our initial consultation. She was very friendly, professional and had a lot fo great ideas for how to make the arrangements beautiful and cost effective. I told her what colors we were using for the wedding and that I liked flowers with lots of texture and she certainly delivered in all respects. I am extremely pleased with the work she did and the reasonable prices she charges. I would definitely recommend her to a friend for any event which requires flowers and if I have another such event, I would definitely try to hire her again. Can't say enough good things!

I cannot say enough good things about Gretchen and the florals she created for my wedding. I was completely blown away by how she "got" my vision and made it come to life. I shared a few inspirational photos with her, and told her various blooms I did and didn't like. I wasn't quite sure how the final product would turn out, but she really did an incredible job. I got so many complements on the table arrangements and my bouquet. She was great to work with - always responded to emails and calls in a timely fashion, and was transparent when an element I had requested (fresh peaches in our table arrangements) turned out to be impossible due to them being out of season. She offered several alternatives and I didn't even miss them on the day of! She was professional from day one, in addition to being an artist. She was flexible when I added a few cocktail table arrangements at the last minute, and always ready to make suggestions to make sure I didn't blow my budget out of the water. I would work with her again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend her! She also has reasonable prices, especially for the quality of her work. If you haven't booked your florist yet - book Petals Ink!

Gretchen and Ben are just lovely. I'll start by saying we had no idea what we wanted for our wedding flowers other than the color palette. From the first email with Gretchen, I knew she "got" what we wanted. . She is incredibly quick and responsive with her communications, didn't hestitate about our limited budget, and was thoughtful and creative with her designs.

Gretchen was flexible and helpful throughout the planning process. She incorporated fabric we were using into the boutineers and bouquets, and everything looked exactly as I had hoped, even without knowing what I was hoping for!

Our wedding was a bit outside of Austin, and we wanted to pick up the flowers ourselves instead of having them delivered. Gretchen and Ben had everything ready to go in perfectly packed boxes, and helped us pack the car so nothing would fall over. Gretchen gave me directions and advice on how to make sure the flowers would look their best for the wedding day, and they were just perfect.

Our family and friends complimented the flowers throughout the night and even now, well after our wedding! I could not be happier with Petals Ink and have already recommended them to friends.

What a blessing to have found her! She has an incredible creative eye, is helpful on the day of, and is extremely reasonably priced. She immediately understood my vision and executed it flawlessly (with a garland on our ceremony arch, garlands on my and my husband's chairs, bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces).

We were so pleased with Gretchen and Petals Ink! We used them for our wedding in April 2013 at the W Hotel. Initially, I was concerned that the rustic, succulent style we chose would not mesh well with the contemporary decor and lighting at the W, but it all blended perfectly! I loved my bouquet, the corsages, boutonnieres, and all of the arrangements and Gretchen was really helpful offering suggestions and ideas. Her pricing was fair and she stuck to our budget. I would highly recommend Gretchen and Petals Ink!

Hi! I found Gretchen on Yelp and I loved what I saw on her blog. After meeting her, I knew I found the right florist for our wedding. She's very easy to work with and offers so many suggestions/ideas. THe only instruction I provided for our wedding day was that I didn't want any of the usual "girly" flowers. The bouquets and arrangements that arrived on the big day were perfect! I received lots of compliments because the bouquets were so different and unique, yet represented my tastes/style perfectly. I highly recommend Petals, Ink! Thanks! - Kristine P.

The bridesmaids bouquets and groomsmen's boutonnieres were gorgeously done. If I have a chance to work with her again, I would not hesitate. Who knows, maybe baby shower?..............

Gretchen was amazing to work with and her creations are so beautiful. We hired her about a month before our wedding and although I was concerned about hiring someone so close to the date of the wedding, Petals, Ink did not disappoint! Everything was gorgeous and Gretchen came back at the end of the night to pick everything up which was very convenient for us since we were leaving early the next morning for our honeymoon. Overall Petals, Ink is a great value and completely worth it because Gretchen is a true artist!

Overall Petals, Ink is a great value and completely worth it because Gretchen is a true artist! Read less

I worked with Gretchen and Petals, Ink for my wedding, which was an outdoor wedding. I wanted some non-traditional flowers and centerpieces and she was able to match my needs perfectly while still being elegant and representing our wedding so well! She was great to work with and very responsive!

Gretchen was the best! She was such a joy to work with. I gave her my ideas for the types of flowers and the kind of style I wanted, and let her take over and I was rewarded with the most perfect and beautiful flowers at my wedding. I wanted a sort of wildflower look, and she did it perfectly. She always responded to my emails and calls very quickly, even on weekends or in the evening. I was very happy with everything Gretchen did for our wedding.

My flowers were BEAUTIFUL, Gretchen was FANTASTIC and she gave a fair price. She is a DREAM to work with during the chaos of planning a wedding. My flowers were the most complimented detail at my wedding. She used the best quality and was there to help with whatever I needed. She is highly, highly recommended.

Petals, Ink did an amazing job with our wedding flower arrangements. Gretchen listened to my ideas and instantly understood my style inspirations and theme, and then creatively brought it all to fruition. She is wonderful to work with - very calming and patient and easy going - the perfect temperament for nervous brides! I highly recommend this vendor!

I LOVED Gretchen and the work she did for us!!

Gretchen was recommended to me by another florist because the other florist wasn't able to do our wedding due to having a busy schedule already.

Gretchen initially had me fill out a quick questioner and then met with me to discuss ideas she had and the cost of the work.

She was really good about working within our budget and her creativity was impressive. She really got us and what we were looking for.

Our flower girl was only 15 months at the time of the wedding and she came up with an excellent floral piece for her. It was actually my favorite piece..it was a ball of ribbon with some small durable carnations. The ball had a long ribbon "handle" for my daughter to hold easily, it was great!

The centerpieces and floral arrangements for the wedding party were just beautiful. I highly recommend Gretchen. She is easy to work with and really seems to understand people, what they want and what they will like.

Gretchen is the best. She did all of the flowers for my wedding at Mercury Hall in Austin, TX this past July. Her arrangements were absolutely beautiful and she worked within our budget (flowers for all of the tables, outside on cocktail tables, a bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, corsages, and boutineers). She knew exactly what I had in mind after talking with her for a short while and also had some great ideas about lighting, provided candles, and really knew how to create a fantastic atmosphere. My colors were black, white, and yellow with lots of sunflowers since I love them. However, we also wanted to work in an oriental twist (given my japanese roots) so she managed to fit origami cranes that my grandmother made into the arrangements! She managed to tie everything together and create a wonderful room. Working with her was completely painless and she really just took care of everything so I didn't have to worry (which you definitely don't want to be doing on your wedding day!) If you are considering her, just go with her and you won't regret it.

Gretchen went above and beyond expectations for the MOST reasonable price out of all of the florists I looked into. Her vision for my bouquets and execution were both brilliant and beautiful. I received innumerable compliments on both mine and the flowers of my bridesmaids. Her timely response to my inquiry (just a little over a month before my wedding!) allowed us to thoroughly discuss what it was that I envisioned for my flowers. I was told by more than one florist that the sunflower boutonnieres I wanted would be unrealistic, but the bouts all turned out so awesome! All of my flowers lasted through the ceremony and dancing and well into the next few days. 5 stars on everything, awesome vendor and will definitely refer my friends and sisters back!

Also! (didn't know this went I hired her) but the "ink" part of the name must be in reference to the awesome photo she sent me about a month after the honeymoon of my bouquet :) she also included a note about the main flower of my bouquet (sunflower) that had lots of interesting little factoids.

Gretchen/ Petals Ink. was AWESOME! She is very affordable and made my budget stretch. She surprised me with orchids the day of the wedding and the arrangements were breath taking. She completely blew me away! Grethcen met with my husband and I took my vision and made it into a reality, she was helpful and made suggestions to keep me at my price point. Most florist that I called could not help me with my florals because they would not work with my budget. I recommend Petals Ink to anyone having a wedding or baby shower or other type of celebration when florals are needed, Gretchen is fantastic!

The flowers were absolutely beautiful for my wedding. I used fuchsia orchids for the bridal bouquet and other green flowers for the groomsmen. I never actually met Gretchen in person - we did all of our planning over the phone and by email because I lived in Dallas and was getting married in Austin. I was so amazed when I saw the flowers and they were more beautiful then i could have imagined. I received tons of compliments from my guests on the flowers she made. The price seemed very reasonable when i was comparing companies. I would definitely recommend Gretchen and her work!

Gretchen of Petals, Ink served as my fantastic florist for my recent wedding. Her service and the quality of her work surpassed my every expectation. Gretchen met with me beforehand to discuss the look I wanted to achieve with my wedding florals, and immediately her creativity stood out to me. I was on a bit of a budget, and almost every other florist I spoke with tried to talk me out of the "simple, natural, classic" look I wanted, in favor of overstated, flashy and expensive centerpieces and bouquets. Instead of trying to change my vision, Gretchen started showing me examples of things that were exactly in line with what I wanted.

The delivery of the final product was even better than what I had pictured after our meetings. She took such care with assembling all of the displays and bouquets. Everything was absolutely perfect and I received many compliments from my guests on how wonderful the flowers were.

I would highly recommend Gretchen and Petals, Ink for any wedding or special event! The prices were fair, the service was exceptional, and the end-result was outstanding!

I recommend Gretchen to any person that I can. She did my flowers and my sister in laws in the same year. I was working with a small budget but the end product you would have never known this...her work is amazing and it is personal which is what I loved the most. Petals, ink. is the business to use if you need flowers for a special occassion, wedding or just to deliver to a close friend.
