Alex is an incredible florist, designer and collaborator. I knew I wanted Petals & Roots to do our flowers because for years my husband had been bringing me home the most beautiful bouquets from them. Alex sat with me numerous times to discuss my vision. She is patient, understanding, generous and kind. Anytime I changed my mind, she welcomed the change and showed me how it could work within my vision. One the day of my wedding, when my bouquet arrived, I burst into tears because it was absolutely perfect. Alex and her team made our wedding more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. We are endlessly grateful. Hire them!

I live nearby and have visited the shop many times, so when it came time to plan my wedding, I knew I had to get in touch with them. I'm kicking myself for wasting any time looking at any other florists! From the first email exchanges, Alex was beyond helpful, professional, warm and genuinely excited to be a part of our special day. She spent an hour and a half with me and my fiance at our first meeting (after hours, to work with our schedules!). She asked questions, listened thoughtfully, spent time looking at photos of our venue and my Pinterest, and pulled together a cohesive, elegant vision I didn't even know I had. I was definitely budget-conscious and she didn't make us feel bad about it at all -- quite the opposite, she brainstormed ways for us to save money and not compromise my vision. When it came time for our centerpiece trial, she spent almost 2 hours with me to make sure it was perfect -- the pinks weren't too pink, and the greens didn't overtake the vase. I left feeling like we were close friends, and she even taught me a thing or two about arranging flowers! A few days before my wedding (Valentine's day), my fiance stopped in to buy me flowers and said to Alex, "you know her taste better than I do at this point!" She made a bouquet that touched on all the floral elements we would have at our wedding a few days later. I could tell the flowers were from her shop, and I was so touched that she was with us every step of the way. Seeing her on my wedding day immediately calmed me down, and everything--from the bouquets to the delicate boutonnieres to the varying centerpieces--was just perfect. I love Petals & Roots and cannot recommend Alex, her husband Pete and their team more highly. You will not be disappointed, promise!

Petals & Roots provided the flowers for our wedding at 501 Union last month. Due to a last minute change in plans, my wife contacted Alex only a few weeks before our wedding. Alex responded immediately and was able to work with my wife on very short notice to come up with a plan that worked for our budget and the aesthetic that my wife really wanted.
There was a snowstorm on our wedding day. Nonetheless, Alex and her husband made an extra effort to be at the venue and have everything set up on time. Everything looked amazing! After listening to my wife stress about the flowers for months (ha!), she was thrilled with the outcome and is still talking about them a month later. We can't recommend Petals & Roots more highly!

Alex is such a pleasure to work with. I chose her because I had passed her store window in my neighborhood so many times and was always drawn to it. So when we needed a florist for our December wedding in Manhattan, I checked out Petals and Roots along with two others in Manhattan recommended by our venue. Alex was more personable and creative than the other two florists I checked out, which I'm sure would have been lovely but felt a bit like the wedding flowers were just part of a pre-planned equation. On the other hand, Alex talked to me about my tastes and styles, looked at pictures of my dress, and then kept a folder of notes and photos that we shared with one another leading up to the date.

She was extraordinarily responsive and accessible, and I loved how we used social media (like Pinterest) to share ideas. The week of the wedding, she met with me to view the venue to see it as it would be decorated for the holidays so she knew how to fine tune the floral details.

On the day of the wedding, I had nearly forgotten that I had no idea what the flowers would look like (everything else, you always see in advance!). Then when one of her assistants walked in with the bouquets I was just blown away and giddy all over again. I had to run around the venue to make sure I took everything in. It was such a beautiful surprise to see the finished product. When the night was over, I was actually sad that I couldn't take all the flowers and centerpieces home with me, and I kept as many of the bouquets for as long as possible around my office and apartment. I wanted to hang on to them forever, but decided I could always relive them through the photos.

I never knew just how much beauty the flowers could add to the wedding, and I could not have been more pleased about selecting Alex as our florist. Her work is impeccable, and you will not be disappointed

We worked with Alex from Petals & Roots for our recent wedding and she simply "got it" from the first discussion. I shared my Pinterest for our wedding with her and she was off like a rocket! We loved her vibe and her store in Astoria, Queens has the best energy! The flower arrangements were amazing and made our ceremony and reception incredibly beautiful. She understood what my husband and I were going for and was an utter delight to work with. My mother and I both had additional items we wanted to add as we got closer and Alex was more than accommodating. She even was up for using some wood elements that my new brother-in-law created for our special day, incorporating them into the centerpieces and tablescapes. Our wedding day would not have been such a cheerful and beautiful event without the amazing guidance and hard work from Petals & Roots!

It was wonderful working with Alex! I feel like she immediately understood my vision and was totally great about working within my price range. Really friendly and prompt service, and most importantly, gorgeous flowers! They were modern but still romantic and a perfect compliment to our venue, The Museum of the Moving Image.

We HIGHLY recommend Petals & Roots. We worked closely with Alex to make our vision come true and she totally nailed it. Our wedding, on 6/4/16, was exactly how we pictured (mostly due to Alex's creativity). We met with her with a few ideas and she dreamed up tons of beautiful ideas, far more than we ever thought possible (particularly in our budget). We looked at tons of Pinterest pages and ideas and she did a beautiful sample for us where she showed us so many things we never would have thought of. For example, we got married at a beer hall and she made us boutineers out of hops. My one "need to have" was lilacs for my bouquet and the bridesmaids, and we knew it would be difficult because it was JUST past the season. But, somehow, Alex made it happen and literally had the most beautiful lilacs I have ever seen. They were just perfect and she knew how important it was to me. We had a backup flower in mind in case she couldn't get it, but she went out of her way to find "my flower". It meant the world to me. They were impeccable, on top, exactly as we discussed. Definitely go with Alex and her team!!

Alex and her team from Petals & Roots hands down were my favorite vendors. I found them by accident and it was a very happy one! We had just moved to the neighborhood and I felt completely out of sorts from moving and wedding planning. I was wandering around the area and was drawn in by the beautiful shop. What I loved the most was how warm and welcoming Alex was and how she worked within our budget yet was realistic about what we could afford. She provided different tiered options and in the end, everything worked out perfectly. We had so many lovely comments about the flowers and our guests were SO excited to take home our centerpieces. I still keep in touch with Alex and my husband knows exactly where to go for all special occasions!!! Petals and Roots is the BEST.

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.

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!
