Pollen provided the flowers for our rehearsal dinner and wedding and there is NOT ONE THING that I would change about our entire experience! My mom is a former florist so I let her coordinate everything with Lynn (remotely, as she’s located in Boston) and the only input we provided was during the initial sit down meeting where we reviewed a ton of pictures and we discussed which images we loved, liked, disliked…. She had requested that we pin some images we liked, prior to this sit down and I had unknowingly selected some of her designs! She really understood our vision, just through that initial meeting.

Our ‘vision’ was an eclectic mix of soft hues, shapes and sizes. We likened it to a wild garden tea party and she completely nailed it! We had vases of different shapes, sizes and finishes, and all of the arrangements, while each being completely different, complemented each other perfectly. I’ve actually never attended a wedding where I heard everyone discussing the flowers so much! Our guests (and we) were just blown away by the beauty of everything! Everyone at Pollen is super friendly, knowledgeable and just wonderful. The flowers might’ve been my favorite part of the wedding, they were so perfect! We wouldn’t change anything and can’t recommend Pollen highly enough!!

If you are seeking a wedding florist - look no further than Lynn at Pollen! Lynn immediately understood my vision (with out me having any visuals to share with her) and executed it perfectly and beautifully! Lynn is professional, accessible, and was a pleasure to work with. Not only was I, the bride blown away by the bouquets, swag, boutineres, and floral arrangements, but everyone who attended our special day. Cheers to Lynn for making our NYE wedding even more memorable!

Lynn and her team at Pollen were everything I hoped for in a wedding florist. My husband and I did not have a strong vision for how we wanted our flowers to look and Lynn was very patient with us as she helped us articulate what we might like. Over the course of two very pleasant in-person meetings at her awesome workshop she got a sense of what we wanted and ran with it. She did a great job with the creative freedom we gave her and our flowers turned out better than I could have imagined. I loved my bouquet so much I was still carrying it around the next day! And the floral centerpieces, complete with vintage glass vases, were gorgeous and perfect for our style.

We really appreciated Lynn's focus on sustainability and local sourcing, and she was always very responsive and easy to work with. Deliver on the day of went smoothly, including setup and breakdown of our lovely ceremony arch. We're happy to recommend Lynn to anyone looking for a well-priced, talented, conscientious florist.

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.
