There are few words that would accurately describe the exceptional service and gorgeous finished product delivered by Lynn and her team at Pollen. From the very first e-mail through the final drop-off, we experienced nothing but professionalism and top notch work. After I showed up to our first meeting with some not very detailed ideas of what I was looking for- Lynn helped me craft a vision and executed it perfectly. Of all the little pieces and details that go into a wedding, the flowers were our absolute favorite- from the bouquets and boutonnieres, to a special memorial for my husband's father, to the stunning centerpieces, each piece was exquisite from start to finish. Not only was the finished product beautiful, but the exceptional service and smooth process were all available for a price point that was unbelievably affordable. We will recommend Lynn and her team to everyone we can, they create a phenomenal experience and product from start to finish!

Pollen was a recommendation from our wedding coordinator so Lynn was added to our list when exploring florists in Chicago. Then, after having a few conversations (via email and phone), I knew that Pollen was the top choice for us. We got married at Salvage One so we wanted to keep that vintage, eclectic look throughout all of our décor so I wanted to use a mix/match of containers for the centerpieces to accompany the succulents. Lynn has an amazing collection of containers that we were able to use along with metallic votive candles that added that beautiful, soft glow to the space.
Our final selection was peonies and succulent for the bouquets and succulents for the boutonnieres. And then Lynn did amazing job of creating unique centerpieces for every table (20 in total) at our reception. We loved that each table had its own special look and yet as a whole, the space looked in unison. We were very pleased with the quality of the flowers and the workmanship. Lynn is a try artist, thank you!

Lynn was so fantastic to work with! She was prompt with communication and great at customizing a look just for us. I had very few ideas of what I wanted for my wedding flowers, but Lynn was great at guiding us to find the perfect look for our big day. She was very patient and thoughtful at our in-person meetings, and she had great insight when we contacted her with decoration questions throughout the planning process. Lynn’s work the day of was absolutely beautiful! We received so many comments, even in the weeks after the wedding, about how wonderful the flowers were!

Lynn for the win!! Oh my goodness, we loved working with Lynn so much! She really took the time to understand our vision, and as a result, our flowers and decor turned out absolutely perfect! From our bouquets to the boutonnieres, every single personal was incredible, and honestly, they were better than we even imagined. Instead of floral centerpieces, we asked Lynn to just deck out our tables with a runner of candles and greens. She absolutely nailed it! To completely sum up how awesome Lynn is to work with, throughout the whole process, she kept saying, “I just don’t want any bad surprises on your wedding day.” She truly wanted us to be happy, and we can’t thank her enough!

I absolutely loved working with Lynn at Pollen for my wedding, and the floral arrangements she created were amazing!! She really took the time to listen to me and understand exactly what I was looking for and she had obviously gone through my Pinterests board before all of our meetings. She wasn't pushy and she was very respectful of my budget. She handled my random requests in stride, brought in an extra assistant to help with some of my non-floral decor and even made me an extra boutonniere for a grandfather who was able to come on a couple of days notice. Working with her was an absolute dream and most importantly ever single arrangement she delivered was absolutely GORGEOUS and exactly what I was envisioning -- I was completely blown away, both when I first saw my bouquets, when I saw the church, and when I walked into the reception -- everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Pollen to anyone!!

There were so many amazing parts to the day, but Lynn's work was absolutely one of the backbones of a breathtaking evening. Not only was she a pleasure to work with throughout the process, working with us to create a vision that was within our budget and beyond our expectations, but her creativity and professionalism set a gorgeous scene. She truly listened to what we wanted and made it come true instead of forcing anything on us.

Lynn is one of the sweetest people I've worked with, but she also gets the job done. Even my mother (rarely impressed and not a huge fan of weddings in the first place) commented on the wonderful flowers.

Lynn was such a pleasure to work with! She created such a beautiful look for our wedding day. I do not know much about flowers and she was able to create exactly what I wanted based off a few simple ideas I had. She stayed to make sure every detail of our night was taken care of and her crew even cleaned up at the end of the night so we didn't have to worry about a thing on our special day. I couldn't have asked for a better florist, I would definitely use Lynn for my flower needs again in the future.

We clicked with Lynn at Pollen immediately, she understood exactly the vibe we were going for and executed it perfectly. Of all the floral vendors we met with, she was the only one who pulled up my pinterest and showed me examples of what she could do. Our flowers were absolutely beautiful and perfect, I received so many compliments on her designs!

I cannot say enough about Lynn from Pollen. Lynn was the ONLY floral vendor who took me on having a somewhat short engagement-only 5 months. She was easy to schedule a consultation with- just click on the link to her google calendar and select a time and you're set! We met and discussed my likes, dislikes, and reviewed my pinterest page. She drew up a very clear and fair estimate for me and we were off and running. I gave Lynn very little guidance on flower selection or color - she is the professional after all, not me. When i came home from hair and makeup on my wedding day and saw the flowers waiting there for me... I was speechless. They were so incredibly beautiful that it took my breath away. I couldn't have ever envisioned something so beautiful- dusty lavender roses, butter yellows, peaches, pale pinks and pops of burgundy with green leafy ferns all wrapped up in a navy blue satin ribbon. I got so many compliments from my friends and family about the flowers. Lynn found the perfect glass containers to compliment the theme of my wedding. The colors and textures and varying sizes of the floral arrangements really brought life and color to my tables. Lynn was flexible in offering me a very fair price to purchase the containers instead of renting them from her so that we can re-use them at our second reception in two weeks. Thank you Lynn for making my day so special!!

Lynn is an absolute gem-- she's an awesome florist AND she's awesome to work with! We're totally kindred spirits when it comes to using locally grown, in-season blooms and she grasped my "prairie" theme right away. Even though my vision (and my color scheme) changed along the way, she was patient an responsive and perfectly captured the essence of our "vintage-garden" wedding. The bouquets and boutonnieres were gorgeous and complemented our muted palette even better than I imagined. We got so many compliments on our one-of-a-kind blooms... I can't wait for the photographic proof! Whether you're in the market for an eco-friendly florist who is committed to sustainable practices, or you dig a garden-y vibe, save yourself a lot of trouble and just contact Lynn-- you will NOT be disappointed!
