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.

Lynn at Pollen might have been the nicest vendor I worked with for my wedding. She had MANY pictures on her computer to show her work and give me ideas. She was friendly, very responsive to the vision that we wanted and flexible in her schedule. The couple of times I went to meet her, she offered a soda or water as we sat comfortably around a table and chatted. It never seemed forced and she never made you feel as though you had to rush out of there. On the wedding day, she arrived on time at the church and stayed to pin on all the flowers and make sure everyone had what they needed. She was so nice to my aunts who were also helping and very professional. The flowers were fresh and BEAUTIFUL!!! I HIGHLY recommend working with her.

After meeting with several florists, I wasn't convinced. Then I met Lynn at Pollen and immediately fell in love with her vision (and dedication to "green" weddings). Her prices were quite reasonable, too.

Lynn's work was absolutely stunning. The bouquets were beautiful, and she worked magic with flowering branches and tulips to make gorgeous centerpieces for our reception tables. Truly, Lynn has an eye for design and is able to play up the natural beauty of all things floral.

I highly recommend Lynn if you are looking for a talented and eco-friendly florist for your wedding or event. Sadly, I'm no longer in the market -- but will continue to lust over her gorgeous designs on Facebook. :)

Working with Lynn from Pollen on our wedding flowers was such a joy! We didn't need a lot of flowers for our venue so we just ordered bouquets/boutonnieres for the bridal party and 2 arrangements for the bar and welcome table. The price was completely affordable and Lynn quickly got what we were interested in and gave us the most beautiful, interesting and unique flowers. As an added bonus Pollen "specializes in green weddings and eco-conscious events by offering sustainably grown flowers". Highly recommended!!

WOW! Lynn from Pollen blew my expectations away! I had given her my color scheme and a few examples for what I was thinking about but told her to be as creative as possible.

The flowers were just beautiful!!!!!! What made it even better is that she tries to use local and sustainable flowers whenever possible.

She is just so CREATIVE!!! I recieved so many compliments from my guests on just how beautiful the flowers were and that quality of the arrangement was amazing.

She has this ability to make the most graphically pleasing arrangements with color and texture. I can't even put into words just how thankfull I am to have found her.

I highly recommend her.

Lynn is very fun to work with. She is funny, creative, and as cute as a button! She knows flowers and is not afraid to take risks. Plus, she is as green as you can be, which is a great bonus. The flower she did for our wedding were fantastic. We went with red, white, gray, and green for the flower colors, and she came up with some really stunning things. She was flexible and helpful, and works within your budget. My advice: hire Lynn at Pollen.
