Lynn was great to work with! From the first meeting to the day of the wedding, everything went super smooth. The flowers were exactly what we wanted, we gave her an initial idea and she was able to capture everything we talked about. She delivered our bouquets to a separate location (on-time) and when my mom's corsage was damaged, Lynn had a replacement waiting for her at our venue. The price was very reasonable and quality was top notch.

If I could give Lynn at Pollen more than 5 stars, I would! Lynn was the florist at our wedding last month, and she exceeded my (already pretty high, since I was familiar with her work) expectations at every turn. She was so generous with her time as we went through the planning process, always returning emails quickly and thoughtfully. I love that she focuses on local and sustainably grown flowers, and the English-garden-y vibe of the floral arrangements was perfect for our venue and style. I think my favorite thing about working with Lynn is how much she clearly loves what she does - the care she puts into her work showed through in every beautiful bouquet and table arrangement she put together for our wedding. Could not recommend Pollen more highly!

Pollen provided the flowers for our recent wedding, and they were beyond gorgeous! Lynn was a joy to work with-- very responsive and professional, open to our desired look, and very respectful of our budget. It was important to us to keep the flowers as local and seasonal as possible, and Lynn shares that value. Our flowers were unique, total works of art-- and exactly what we wanted. I'd recommend Pollen to any and everyone!

Working with Pollen and Lynn was incredible. She took my inspiration and created the most beautiful flowers. Her creativity and professionalism cannot be understated. I am so happy I found Pollen! We received a number of compliments about the flowers and centerpieces. I could not have asked for anything more!

Lynn at Pollen is the absolute best when it comes to wedding flowers! We were 100% confident with her from the beginning and she more than followed through with amazing combinations of colors and flowers. Highly recommend - worth every penny!

Despite our plan to use minimum floral (due to the design of our space and style of our ceremony), the flowers that we received from Pollen were the highlights of our decor! The bouquets were absolutely stunning and exactly what we had hoped for, only better! Wonderful to work with and amazing design!

Lynn at Pollen was awesome! Because our venue was a very unique and eclectic space full of antiques and vintage furniture/decor, we weren't initially going to do flowers. So when I finally decided that I wanted to, it was VERY late in the game. I met with Lynn, spoke with her about my style, the feel I wanted to evoke, and the type of flowers that appeal to me. She understood exactly who I was and gave me a proposal that was much more reasonable than one of the only other eco-friendly floral designers in the city. Plus she was way more comfortable and genuine. So, yeah, where was I? Coming to her so late in the game, I asked if we could just give her what we felt we could spend and let her do her thing. She loved that! And she delivered! My flowers, which were a complete surprise to me on my wedding day, were DIVINE! Each flower was different and perfect. I've never seen anything like it. The best part? When my chosen hair accessory wasn't working during my hair trial two days before the wedding, I asked her if she could bring a flower for my hair. She chose the most exquisite little roses, perfect in color and shape, and brought THREE of them to the venue, already attached to combs, and put one in my hair herself!! Leaving me with the other two so I could switch them out when my body heat started to make them wilt! Brilliant, thoughtful, kind, fun, and...did I mention, brilliant?!! She's not a florist, she's an artist. Every single person that I spoke to about the flowers told me they'd never seen anything like it and that they were hands-down the most beautiful flowers they'd ever seen! In an industry full of cookie-cutter bouquets, it was very refreshing. I would be happy to share my photos.

Lynn at Pollen did the flowers for our wedding on July 28, 2012, and everything was absolutely perfect! My husband and I showed Lynn a few photos of things we liked, and Lynn completely delivered on our vision. In addition to having perfect flowers for our wedding day, Lynn is also just the sweetest person. I am sad my wedding is over, since that means I no longer have a reason to work with her. She was always so prompt with email and very flexible to changes. Hiring Lynn and Pollen for our wedding flowers was one of our best decisions!

Lynn and Pollen are awesome - I loved her concept and her fun personality. She was willing to work with me to create centerpieces using my family's collection of antique milk glass. We worked together to select flower types and colors and everything turned out perfectly. I love my bouquet and my bridesmaids loved theirs too. Her wrist corsages come on bracelets that are similar to the slap bracelets from the 90s - the mothers and grandmothers loved them and said they were comfortable.

Overall, I loved working with Lynn and was very thankful for her patience and willingness to listen to my ideas.
