My fiancé and I have been getting flowers from Petals & Roots for years, so it was only natural that when we were looking for a florist for our wedding that we made an appointment with them.

First of all, Alex and Pete are such a welcoming couple that our meeting lasted over an hour! I personally have always admired Alex's visual style through her bouquets and the setup of her shop so I was very excited when we made the (easy) decision of using them as our florist.

Alex and Pete made the planning process very easy with their creativity and flexibility. Alex understood my vision and gave environmental suggestions that matched it exactly - from candles to tablecloths to table numbers. She even joined me on a trip to the garment district to look at tablecloths! She also attended a lighting tasting at the venue with us - centerpiece in tow - to ensure the lighting would compliment the flowers. The morning of my wedding, I asked for a change in my bouquet and, almost immediately, a new bouquet was delivered to our hotel.

I highly recommend Petals & Roots and will absolutely continue to use them for future events.

Petals & Roots was the preferred vendor of our venue (Penthouse808) and I'm so glad they introduced me to Alex and her team.

In my research phase I spoke with one other florist and although they had breath-taking arrangements, I was turned off by their horrible service and lack of response. Alex on the other hand was super quick to respond, and went above and beyond to make sure every detail was just right. We met at her beautiful shop in Astoria several times and we worked together in person, phone and email to come up with the centerpiece design I was envisioning. She didn't have a few of the flowers in stock when I visited, so she delivered a mock-up of the centerpiece when the flowers came in. She was very patient and understanding, and assured me everything would come out perfectly - and she was right! She personally came to our venue the day-of to help her team set up. She also had her staff deliver our corsages and boutonnieres to two different locations to make sure we had what we needed in advance. I also had some last minute changes that she was able to accommodate with no problem and no extra charges.

If you're looking for beautiful flowers, great service at an affordable rate - stop your search and go with Petals & Roots. I promise that they'll take care of you and do a fantastic job!

My fiancee (now wife) and I were planning our wedding in NYC, though we live in Tennessee. Planning a wedding from several states away wasn't always easy, but working with Alex at Petals & Roots was a wonderful experience.

We are a same-sex couple, and wanted two bridal bouquets. I was a bit worried about the challenge Alex faced - my wife and I have very different taste in flowers, but wanted our two bouquets to look good together too. Alex worked with us over the phone and email, even looking at our separate Pinterest boards to get a feel for what we each liked, and was incredibly thoughtful and creative in conceptualizing two bouquets that would make each of us happy. I was so impressed by the time she took working with us to be sure we were all on the same page.

When our bouquets were delivered to us on our wedding day, we both shrieked like little girls - the flowers were better than we had ever envisioned. My wife had a gorgeous, pink, fluffy, feminine bouquet full of pink peonies and roses. I had the bohemian, wildflower-inspired multicolor bouquet of my dreams, full of different textures and colors. And Alex incorporated a few of the same pinks and whites into both of our bouquets, to provide flow between the two. They were beyond perfect.
I couldn't stop staring at my flowers all day and feeling like the luckiest woman in the world, to get to carry them!

Petals & Roots did a lovely job providing flowers for my wedding. I could not have asked for a better florist! Marcela and Alex were always enthusiastic and attentive during our meetings, making me feel immediately at ease with both of them. They went out of their way to be flexible in revising my quote multiple times and working with me even though I booked very close to my wedding date. They even came with me to look at the church and take measurements because it was nearby! Their level of personal attention was refreshing but even more importantly, the arrangements they created were stunning and exactly what I wanted. On the wedding day, the delivery and set up went smoothly, and they were by far one of my favorite vendors I worked with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a florist in NYC!

Originally, I planned to do all my flowers. But, when I got my heart set on having an elaborate floral arch at the ceremony; I realized I should just leave everything to the professionals. (Thank goodness I did!)

I stumbled upon Alex and Petals & Roots by chance and (I think) very close to the wedding date. Luckily for me, she was able to take on our wedding. Not only is Alex a LOVELY person, she is incredibly talented, and she has loads of experience (the flower industry is a family business that spans generations!)

We emailed back and forth several times and she was very polite when I sent ridiculous PDF files with inspiration and direction. She was also VERY competitive with her pricing. (We did not originally budget for a florist, but Alex made it work.)

I wanted to use a lot of found bottles for our centerpieces and spent a year collecting them like a crazy person. Alex let us drop everything off ahead of time. She surveyed what she had and suggested how to fill in the spaces. At that time, she showed us some examples of flowers she planned to use (that matched our budget and our inspiration.) We felt very happy we chose her and she easily dispelled any anxieties we might feel about a florist.

Going off a photo I sent, Alex was able to make the most gorgeous floral arch I have ever seen. It was perfect; better than I could have asked for!

She did an incredible job of reading our tastes, inspiration, and then turned it into a beautiful professional floral masterpiece! I was so happy with all the flowers for the wedding: bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, etc. Everything was so gorgeous; I am sad I don't have more pictures of them.

I cannot praise Alex and Petals & Roots highly enough. She is a wonder to work with and she will make your event a floral dream. We will be sure to use her again at any opportunity. Thank you Alex!!!!

Alex will make your wedding floral dreams come true, and on a reasonable budget, too. She has really great taste and her shop is simple/modern stylistically, so if you are looking for less traditional arrangements like I was, it's the place to be. She'll help you find your "vision". I have to say, receiving my bouquet and hair flowers from Alex was probably one of the best moments of my wedding day!

More importantly, Alex has an attitude you won't find elsewhere. She brainstormed with me and bore with me as I went through idea after idea, and sent picture after picture. She's flexible and totally easy-going. Decide you need a few extra arrangements around the room a few weeks before? Or a boutonniere for the groom the week before the wedding? She'll make it work. The thing I like most about Alex is her integrity. She might suggest buying a certain vase or such from her shop, but she won't pressure you into it. If you want to provide your own, that's fine. It really impressed me how the flowers were 1st priority with her, and she didn't try to sell me lots of other stuff like other florists tend to do. Oh, and she put everything together on my tables so quickly and efficiently on the day of the wedding - it was impressive!

I can't recommend Petals & Roots enough!

A true hidden gem! Felt warm and welcome the minute we walked through the door. We recently got married and this was our first and last stop. The shop owner, Alex spent a great deal of time with us to figure out exactly what we were looking for. When we came back to see a sample, she had taken our ideas and improved on them tenfold. Throughout our wedding planning, Alex was responsive, patient, and understanding. Really a great experience start to finish. Highly recommend!

Alex and her husband, Pete, are the best! We had an impromptu first-meeting with Alex and she immediately understood the vision I was going for. When we showed up the next week, she had a sample centerpiece ready for us and it was spot-on! She offered help and advice on other decor my husband and I were working on, and you can just feel her enthusiasm and love for what she does. When we arrived at our venue, everything was perfect! Their prices are totally reasonable too. Alex is so sweet - you feel like she's your friend, not just your florist. She even stayed to watch me walk down the aisle :) Can't wait to have another excuse to order flowers from Petals & Roots!

I had a great experience with Petals & Roots. Their shop is very inviting, featuring seasonal floral arrangements throughout the shop and the decor is clean, modern, and professional.

I had no clue what direction I wanted to go with, but Alex helped guide me from square 1, taking the time to listen to my ideas and offer her expertise. She then transformed our vision into amazing sample centerpieces to ensure we would receive exactly what we wanted.
Alex was always available for questions and was a pleasure to work with, I never felt pressured and she stayed conscious of our budget.

The bridal bouquets, centerpieces, candle arrangements and alter pieces turned out even more beautiful than I envisioned!

Petals & Roots provided the flowers for my wedding this past summer. I truly believe they were the best possible choice for my wedding. I've never been the type of girl who got excited about flowers. Before I walked in the door, I had no idea what I wanted or even if I really wanted flowers at all. However, Alex is just SO genuinely enthusiastic about what she does, that I caught on to that excitement as well.

She put together samples for us and they were beautiful. She made little tweaks with us when we went to the shop to see them. I had confidence that no matter what she did with the flowers, they would be beautiful. And I was right. On our wedding day Alex showed up on time with everything. My bouquet was gorgeous, and everything I never knew I wanted. My bridesmaids loved their bouquets as well. The centerpieces were just like the samples, and guests said how much they brightened up the room. I was happy to have my guests take home to centerpieces after the event so that Alex's hard work could pay off longer.

If you're looking for a florist who will do an awesome job and make your life easier during such a busy time, check out Petals & Roots. I would most definitely do it all again!
