Rachel and her team were a pleasure to work with. I have not met a team more opened and receptive to any question or feedback throughout the whole process. I used Rachel Clingen for my floral and decor this past weekend. I could not be happier with the end result.

Rachel did a tremendous job on Saturday. The florals and decor were absolutely fantastic. I loved everything about what they did. The uniqueness and attention to detail was amazing. The ceremony hall was beautifully decorated with beautiful ribbon connecting each row, beautifully lined aisle with pedestals of flowers, and the two arrangements at the end of the aisle were incredible - stunning is an understatement.

The formal dining room was just breathtaking. The first moment I walked in to the room I nearly cried. I couldn't get over how well Rachel and her team did at making my dreams become a reality. I am the first to admit that I cannot make decisions, and I barely know one flower to the next, but through our meetings and Rachel getting to know me - she somehow put together a room that was so perfect, so bang on, and so beautiful. I couldn't have asked for anything better.

I had so many guests come up to me and comment on how wonderful the room looked and how beautiful the floral was. The table settings were just spectacular - I have never seen such beautiful centre pieces -- we had a mix of high candelabras and low urns which look extraordinary in the room.

I still can't get over ‎how lovely the bouquets were. I don't think I have seen any so beautiful before. They were magnificent!! Just how I had imagined them. The colours, arrangement, and meticulous placement of each flower in the bouquet was beautiful. You can tell that Rachel has an extreme passion for what she does - it is evident in the work she produces.

Rachel and her team went above and beyond and made my dreams a reality. I never once was questioned what Rachel was going to produce - she has a great talent!!

When Marco and I decided that we would have an outdoor/tent wedding we knew that without question we had to hire the best in the industry. We had high expectations for our wedding as we wanted to create a setting that was unique for our guests, an experience like no other. After reviewing Rachel's work in magazines we decided to set up a meeting, and within minutes we knew this was the right team for us.

Working with a tent involved numerous factors that had to be taken into consideration, it was a blank canvas that had to be transformed into our vision. Our outdoor venue was built the week of the wedding. Everything from lighting, chandeliers, flooring, carpet, draping, floral, candlelight, linens and much more had to be installed and pulled together to create the look and feel that represented us. Words cannot describe how Rachel and her team not only nailed our vision but also surpassed it on so many levels.

When I walked into our tent for the first time in the beautiful gardens of The Doctor's House, I was overcome with emotion. It was perfect, romantic, elegant and classy just the way I envisioned.

The compliments from our guests were endless, many in awe and stating that this was the most beautiful wedding they had attended. Classy was an understatement. It was absolutely breathtaking.

Not only was Rachel's work brilliant, but she and Jessy were by my side along the way. They were impeccable in responding to every question I had in a timely manor and would pick up the phone and call me if I needed reassurance or clarity. The service level was remarkable. They made it known that my special day mattered to them.

Rachel I can't thank you enough for being part of this special day. You have a brilliant team and there are no words for how amazing Jessy is! Your passion for what you do shines through your work.

Keep doing what you do.

From the moment I saw Rachel's work I knew I wanted her to do my wedding. Jessy, Rachel and her whole team were absolutely amazing to work with. I went back and forth wondering if I should hire a wedding planner or not but after my first appointment with Rachel I trusted her completely with my whole wedding. I left every meeting feeling organized and calm, and that feeling continued right up until the moment I walked down the aisle. Her whole team is very professional, caring and make you feel like your wedding is the only wedding they are planning. The design meetings were SO fun and every small detail was discussed and nothing was ever missed! They are very talented and her work speaks for itself, but more importantly they are an absolute pleasure to work with. Through it all we developed a wonderful friendship ! I would definitely recommend Rachel and her team to anyone I know planning a wedding, you will not be disappointed!

I connected with Rachel and Jessy when I was only months away from my wedding date and delivering my undergraduate thesis while my fiancé and I were preparing for him to start a new position in England. I had no doubt that Rachel and her team were also up to their foreheads in work with the Spring season approaching but they enthusiastically took me on and I will be eternally grateful. Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design brought a British botanical Spring to Casa Loma with gorgeous floral and flickering candles fit for a timeless storybook; our guests enjoyed an unforgettable "fairytale" as the ambiance brought each room to life into the evening. Rachel and her team are first class both personally and professionally; in addition to their expertise and passion they are each genuine, sincere, honest, kind and generous. I will carry my experience with Rachel and Jessy into my design profession.

My aesthetic is high modern and traditional, which are at opposite ends of the spectrum and leaves everything in between as an option. Rachel and Jessy thank you so much for always responding to me so quickly to talk through the random visuals that you received and for encouraging my initial concept, it was a reminder to have faith in my aesthetic and vision. I appreciate your guidance and enthusiasm so much and never once felt rushed or swayed, only that my happiness and comfort were your top priority and I deeply appreciate that.

Our wedding was nearly three weeks ago now and our decor still comes up in conversations with our family and friends as being magical and the photos are breathtaking. Thank you for making our day exquisite and creating the spirit of an English Spring, Casa Loma felt more like a home than a castle and it looked as celebratory as we felt. Thank you so much for being there for me all the way, I won't forget it.

God Bless!

I found out about Rachel and all the amazing work she does through reviews on this site and photo shoots in wedding magazines. I knew I had to book an appointment for a consult. From the first appointment to the last, Rachel and Jessy were amazing. They were always there to answer questions, reassure me on my decisions, and add their ideas and input when I wasn't sure. The flower arrangements and my bouquet were the most important aspect of the decor to me and Rachel understood exactly what I was thinking of. Her team created the most amazing, colourful, and rustic looking arrangements. It was more than I had ever imagined could be done with flowers. They were so amazing on the day as well. They were there to set up and take down the chapel and venue in no time and with out any problems. They were very easy to work with, professional, and very experienced. They always made me feel like it would all work out and I trusted they knew what looked best and for a bride that is the most important feeling.
They created an atmosphere at our wedding that was not only beautiful but rustic and I couldn't have asked for anything more. They created my dream wedding and no words will ever be able to thank them enough for all their work.

Jessy and Rachel,

From the first time I opened a wedding magazine, you were my first choice for decor! You exceeded my expectations above and beyond. Our wedding day was more then I could have ever dreamed of - Thank You for handling the minor hiccup with the linen's so professionally, you took me from being in tears to back to being totally calm and excited, in a matter of minutes.

The backdrop and chandelier were gorgeous and the linens just tied everything together!!!! I received nothing but compliments the whole night! Even my husband said to me "Wow - this looks amazing"!

I can't thank you enough!!!!

Upon beginning my wedding planning a year and a half ago, I had already heard of the wonderful talent that is Rachel A. Clingen and her team. I had the pleasure of meeting Rachel and Jessy at the National Bridal Show and booked my services with them right then and there - meanwhile, the only reason I had gone to the show was to simply meet and book them.

My high expectations were met and surpassed throughout the entire planning process with them. Jessy was able to create our wedding vision in a reality, when I had difficulties trying to vocalize what it was I was picturing. The wedding day itself, was beyond anything I would have ever imagined. From Rachel hand delivering my flowers that morning, to walking into the church and being shocked by the transformation, and to walking into the venue and being completely overwhelmed by the beauty of the space - their professionalism and talent is unparalleled. Thank you Rachel, Jessy and your entire team for making our wedding day even more beautiful than we could have ever hoped.

From the moment we walked into Rachel A. Clingen’s charming studio and sat down with Rachel herself, we were sold!

After meeting with several floral & décor companies we truly found WHO we were looking for – Someone with passion, enthusiasm, innovation and style that mirrored our own. The best part about working with Rachel Clingen is that it was a ‘worry-free’ experience. Both my husband and I were quite busy with our careers during the planning process and wanted to work with a vendor who we could trust and offered a turn-key service, we loved that Rachel and her team had years of experience, flawless reviews and countless features in industry leading bridal magazines.

We will never forget walking into the Hudson Room at The Paramount Event Venue in Vaughan Ontario on October 26th 2013, the room was absolutely transformed and literally took our breath away. Rachel and her team created a chic, elegant yet modern ambiance that we were so proud of and really represented us. Up-lit draping covered the entire perimeter of the space with gorgeous sparkly chimmiliers hanging right over our very own signature vinyl dance floor. The head table was exactly what we envisioned with French tufted panels, a beautiful Lucite dining table and a spectacular array of roses, hydrangeas and my favorite, Phalenopsis orchids! Our beautiful centerpieces were a mix of clear candelabras to match our Grace ghost chairs and tall crystal pillar vases all fashioned in fresh floral.

Dozens of guests complimented us throughout the evening that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended!! Words cannot express how much we enjoyed working with Rachel and her team. Rachel is a visionary and the very best in the industry. We actually miss working with you, Rachel…not too many newlyweds can probably say that about their wedding vendors!

A wholehearted THANK YOU to Rachel, Jessy, David and team for EVERYTHING!!

Truly,
Daniela Sposato Montagner

Jessy from Rachel Clingen was an absolute DREAM to work with!
I had the mammoth task of arranging my entire Wedding; which we had in Niagara on the Lake, from where I live in Sydney, Australia. From the moment we first met Jessy we knew we wanted to work with her; she was so incredibly organised and on the ball; you could just tell she really knows her stuff. Jessy always made herself available (even with the 14 hour time difference) and came back to my emails right away! She was SO patient and flexible throughout the whole process and made sure to ask all the right questions to ensure she would deliver EXACTLY what I was dreaming of!
Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and she truly exceeded my expectations. If you're looking for a no-fuss, 100% reliable, high-end, high-quality,specialist service I would highly recommend Rachel Clingen. Their organisation, efficiency, professionalism, passion and design style is a standout in the industry!
Thank you thank you thank you AGAIN Jessy; you made my life SO much easier throughout the process and I knew I had nothing to worry about on the day!

Rachel and Jessy were AMAZING from start to finish. They were so helpful throughout the whole process and available to answer any questions I had. My wedding was the most beautiful event I had ever seen, it was breath taking. Rachel and her staff made my visions pale in comparisons to what she created for me, my husband and our guests. I was so impressed I can't even describe to you how I felt when I looked around, it was truly magical.

My husband and I just sat down to watch our SDE video from our wedding last year and it reminded me of how special that day was. A year later I still love everything and every little detail. For a bride (and groom) who had no idea how to express what they wanted the event to look like Rachel took into her own hands and made it everything and more. The picture of my flowers is now my screen saver yet again - hopefully we will have an excuse to make an event so beautiful with Rachel in the future.

I really could not have imagined a more beautiful wedding, everything was beyond what I could have ever dreamed. Rachel and Jessy are an absolute pleasure to work with. They made the entire experience effortless.

My brother and sister in law hired Rachel and her team a few years ago when they got married, once I saw their stunning decor, the flowers and all of the special details, I knew I wanted to hire her without a doubt for my wedding day. Rachel and her team are extremely talented at what they do, so creative, hardworking, professional, listens to your ideas and knows exactly how to make them a reality.

Our wedding decor was stunning, the room was breathtaking. I would not have changed a single thing. The moment I walked into the room for the first time, I was speechless, it was perfect! The backdrop was GORGEOUS, the hanging chandeliers were my favourite. No matter what you want, they make it happen.

Thank you SO much for making my wedding day everything I have ever dreamed of, and more! You and your team are the best :)

I really could not have imagined a more beautiful wedding, everything was beyond what I could have ever dreamed. Rachel and Jessy are an absolute pleasure to work with. They made the entire experience effortless.

My brother and sister in law hired Rachel and her team a few years ago when they got married, once I saw their stunning decor, the flowers and all of the special details, I knew I wanted to hire her without a doubt for my wedding day. Rachel and her team are extremely talented at what they do, so creative, hardworking, professional, listens to your ideas and knows exactly how to make them a reality.

A big part of the success of this special day was made perfect because of our theme & floral decorator, Rachel A Clingen Wedding & Event Designs. It only took one meeting to decide that she was the right designer for us. We could tell that Rachel was as engaged in our dream wedding vision as we were. She asked all the right questions, but more importantly she listened and understood who we were and what we wanted to create for ourselves & our guests.
She took a lot of stress out of our planning, with each phone call or email, ideas were discussed and decisions were made easily & professionally . Words cannot explain what kind of magic happened that day. From the spectacular display of hydrangeas & roses in the church where we exchanged our vows, to the awesome vintage decor of our reception venue at the beautiful Old Mill in Toronto, we were in awe. Rachel showcased the Brule Rooms with a gorgeous tiered head table complete with draping and up-lighting. We celebrated our romantic wedding with our guests amid tables decorated with both high & low flora's & candle lit crystal centerpieces. When we walked through those doors..we couldn't believe our eyes. It was our dream...it was perfect.
Our wedding day was filled with a romantic ambiance, enhanced by Rachel's diligent work & creativity. We thank-you for helping us create the masterpiece backdrop for our wedding memories.

Love,
Adam and Jessica Tupling

Rachel and her team are second to none. Words cannot express how happy we were with her work for our wedding. From the first day we met her, we instantly knew we wanted her to design our wedding. She is honest, genuine, sincere and really listens to what her clients want. We had complete confidence in everything Rachel suggested; she has amazing creative design and my best advice is to give Rachel full reign on the design and she will create a stunning and unique look. We still have guests raving that they have never seen flowers as beautiful as the ones at our wedding. Both Rachel and Jessy were always so prompt on replying to e-mails and phone calls and were always able to put our minds at ease. Rachel and her team have established a reputable name and if you have the pleasure of her designing your wedding, you can be sure that you will love every bit of it. Of all the wedding planning, meeting with Rachel was our favourite part! Thank you for all your hard work Rachel, Jessy and team- you really are the best!

Many of you reading this will know where I come from when i say that as a Little Girl I have envisioned my wedding day over and over again. Many little girls care about the "white dress", I on the other hand only cared about the decor. To me the utmost important element to a wedding is the decor. After All, the decor is what makes the ambiance of the wedding, it is what sets the mood and it is what people talk about most! If you agree with this statement then Rachel is the ONLY designer that would be able to see your vision and to execute it exactly as you had envisioned it.

Her approach to your wedding is exactly that:YOUR wedding. She keeps in mind your vision, your budget and your expectation. She then bursts with excitement when she comes up with brilliant ideas to make your wedding dreams come true.

Not only is Rachel talented, she has surrounded herself with a team that truly cares and loves what they do! Jessy was a doll to deal with and her responsiveness and attentiveness was bar none!

Overall I can't say enough about what a positive experience it was working with Rachel and her team. All I can say is that there is lots of wedding decor places out there that you can choose from, if you want a cookie cutter, typical wedding then Rachel may not be your best choice, however if you want professionalism, uniqueness and vision then look no further, because like I did, you will walk into your hall and shed tears to see your dream wedding turn into a reality!

Working with the Rachel A. Clingen team -especially Jessy!- was an absolute pleasure. After doing a lot of research, I met with Jessy who's bubbling personality, knowledge of wedding floral and decor, and Rachel's amazing portfolio made the decision to choose them easy. They provided the floral and decor for my bridal shower, and wedding, and I was blown away both times. They listened to my ideas, and vision, and then gave me something better than I could've imagined. They gave me the flowers I always wanted, all while staying committed to our budget. I would highly recommend Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design to any bride who is looking for exceptional quality, and wants to work with a fun and passionate group of people. Thank you again for adding the finishing touches that made our day perfect!

Rachel and her team are absolutely amazing at what they do. From the moment that we first met her at our initial consult we knew that she was the one that we wanted to have create our dream wedding. Her enthusiasm, professionally, creativeness and her passion is what made us fully confident in her.

When we walked into our reception hall we were so overwhelmed at how beautifully it all came together, we were truly overjoyed with emotion, and this was all thanks to Rachel, her team and their vision. Being a bride there are soo many little details and stresses that you experience leading up to the big day, the décor was one area where we did not have to worry about a single thing.
Rachel and her team took care of everything; we were truly amazed with everything they did for us.
Thank for making our dream wedding come to life! You and your team are truly talented at what you do! You rock!

I just got back from my wedding, which was held at Taboo Resort in Gravenhurst. I had come across Rachel Clingen's work while researching wedding photography at Taboo. I knew right away that they would make my vision come true as they had done some prior work that was exactly what I wanted with my own wedding (beautiful centrepieces, birch bark accents etc.). The truth is that all of their work was beautiful.

I had thought that I might be stressed the day of my wedding-- not knowing what the colours of my floral would look like or whether all the tables would be set up "just right" ... but when I walked down that aisle and entered the reception hall ... I was absolutely blown away. Everything looked so incredibly beautiful. It was my dream wedding come true and I had zero stress the day of... I am still getting compliments on how beautiful the décor was ... and, even though space was tight, I squeezed as many bouquets and arrangements as I could into all of the vehicles heading back to TO, because I simply couldn't part with them. Rachel and her team worked so hard to get everything just right ... I wanted an outdoor ceremony ... and even when it looked like it might gush with rain, they stood by until the clouds parted to set everything up for the ceremony... And, they also drove 2 hours back to the venue the day after to pick up all of their stuff ... Again, I didn't have to worry about a thing ... Just enjoy!

I could go on and on about how happy I am and would recommend them to everyone I know (and everyone I don't know as well). Rachel & Jessy, thank you so much for making my day everything I dreamed it would be. Amy

Just thinking about that magical day makes me tear up…Rachel made our wedding feel like it was straight out of the pages of a fairy tale…

I’ve never been the “girly” type…never owned anything pink…I trained as a doctor so I was taught to keep my emotions in check…Having said that going through this wedding experience with Rachael has changed me forever…

Chris and I met Rachael at the WedLuxe wedding show…from the moment we met her we could tell that she was sincere and caring. We gave Rachael a lot of flexibility with our wedding. We didn’t have anything in mind, other than we wanted to incorporate lavender into it. What Rachael came up with, was out of this world!!! We felt confident in her talent and abilities. She is so CREATIVE!!!

Our ceremony site was slated for outside, however, it rained that morning. At first I was devastated. Rachael came to me as I was getting my hair and makeup done and said…”Afiya, don’t worry I will make the ceremony site even better than we planned outside…” I was relieved and trusted that she would. Our “plan b” was a beautifully draped tent, our reception site…
As I walked down the aisle I was blown away…What Rachael and her team did was unbelievable!!! It felt like an oasis! The sun was out then and just like Rachael said everything came together. The entire night my guest kept commenting on how beautiful the flowers and décor were. That this was the “best” wedding they had ever been to… We were all blown away at how Rachael made the ceremony and reception so different, the transformation was luxurious.

Chris and I are thrilled that all of Rachael’s hard work, dedication and just sheer talent has been recognized by WEDLUXE magazine. Our wedding is featured in the winter/spring 2014 edition.

I’m still not a lover of pink…lol…however Rachael has made me believe that fairy tales DO come true. She brought ours to life on June 22.2013…
Hears to happily ever afters,

Afiya and Chris

I met Rachel for the first time at a wedding show in January. She was so friendly and excited to hear all about what I had envisioned for my wedding. Before I even got my words out she was finishing with my sentence with exactly what I had in mind. I knew we would be a good fit. She was always steps ahead of me and it allowed to be trust her completely. She is so diligent with what she does and she brought our dream wedding to life. The end result was absolutely breathtaking. I did not have to worry about a single thing and it was even better than I would have ever expected. It is now 3 months later and our friends are still talking about our flowers and decor. I am first of many friends to get married and I will no doubt be recommending Rachel and her team for my friends weddings. I have since used her for 3 different events for work and she has never let me down!! Thank you again Rachel and Jessey for all your outstanding work!!

Rachel Clinger and her team is without a doubt the best event designer around! I cannot express this enough. Rachel has done four weddings in my family (including my own this past June), and has amazed my family every time.
Planning with Rachel was the best part of the wedding, her meetings were a lot of fun (and very productive) she understood my vision and built on it in a way I could of never imagined. I loved her unique ideas and creativity!
The best part is Rachel is always available with a phone call away if you have any questions or you just need to talk to smooth any pre-wedding concerns away. She always has it all figured out.
Her team is very professional and knows how to get the job done. They are all extremely hard working.
Rachel truly puts her heart into every job she does, and you are guaranteed to receive the best. She is also flexible and accommodating on budget, she will work with you to suit your needs.
I am so happy to have met Rachel, not only as an event designer, but someone who I now call a friend. I cannot wait to use her services again.

We could not have asked for anything more perfect from Rachel and her team. Every detail was covered from beginning to end. It was so exciting to work with Rachel and her enthusiasm for her business. Working with Jessy was also amazing. Her responsiveness and professionalism made the process easy and enjoyable.

From the first moment that I walked into the reception room, or when I walked down the ceremony aisle, I was stunned. I could not believe that this was our wedding and how it had come together and how the decor was cohesive and represented everything we wanted. We could not have imagined anything to be more spectacular (nor did we imagine our wedding to be so beautiful). We even noticed that details that we hadn't originally thought of (such as hiding a hideous door) were accounted for. She understood the vision from day one and easily adapted to our changing requests. From planning the wedding, I did not know how all the ideas would come together but knew I could trust Rachel and her team; they truly executed the most perfect decor.

While certain aspects of Wedding Planning were quite stressful - there was not a moment when I was worried with Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design and they made the entire decor and flower process enjoyable, exciting, and executed with immaculate precision, professionalism and expertise.

Thank you Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design on making the day become a dream come true.

I worked with Jessy Toomey for our wedding. I'm a very indecisive person when it comes to décor decisions, but Jessy worked really well with me and guided me along the way. I changed my mind a few times and she was completely understanding and patient with me! We had sooo many options of décor and flowers to choose from that we just couldn't go wrong. All options were beautiful.

The church décor was absolutely beautiful and people who attended have not stopped talking about our reception! Some even said it was the most beautiful wedding they've seen! She really understood my vision and executed it perfectly. I would definitely recommend Rachel A. Clingen for décor and flowers!!

I worked with Jessy Toomey for the decor and design of my bridal shower at the Ancaster Old Mill on May 5th. I can't even express in words how beautiful the decor was. Her level of professionalism and attention to detail was top notch, 5 star service. Every single detail I discussed was executed flawlessly and not once did I worry that she would miss something. They showed up in the morning and designed the room so flawlessly and quietly I was amazed. Not once did I receive a phone call about any problems or concerns. If you are looking for a design team that will leave the stress out of your hands for your big day..this is Rachel's team. Every single guest was amazed at how gorgeous the flowers were and it was even more beautiful than I could have imagined it. Thank you so much Jessy for going over an above my expectations and making my bridal shower absolutely stunning. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend you and your team. Thanks again!! xoxo

I am very happy to take this opportunity to praise and highly recommend Rachel Clingen and her staff for your wedding day!

Our wedding day took place at Sunnybrook Estates on April 20th, 2013; a day that was more beautiful because of Rachel and her team. Both Rachel and Jessy were patient, kind and very understanding, as I sometimes wasn't clear in expressing what I wanted re: my bouquets and centrepieces. They were always available to answer my questions and made me feel very much at ease. The end result was something more awesome than I imagined as our guests were 'fighting' over the centrepieces! Rachel was kind enough to await my arrival at the venue too so she could make sure I was happy with the end result. I was extemely happy as the first thing I wished to see when I arrived at the venue were the centrepieces :)

Obviously Rachel and her team are the best in the business and I most definitely recommend their services. Thanks so much Rachel and Jessy - you gals are the BEST!!!

Rachel,

Borna and I would like to say thank-you immensely for creating the wedding of our dreams... we were beyond words when the drapes opened and we walked in to reveal a fairytale – you literally took our (and our guests!) breath away.

We knew we had a modern and striking venue, but we really wanted to bring it to life and take it to the next level décor wise. From our very first meeting you had incredible ideas that spoke to our vision perfectly-- an eye-catching winter white wedding with small pops of contrasting black. Your enthusiasm was contagious! You provided us with so many options, and didn’t stop with the suggestions until you knew we were absolutely thrilled and giddy with excitement. The result-- a perfect marriage of our thematic ideas and your creative artistry and mastery! Our wedding décor was simply spectacular and like nothing we had ever seen before (which is something that we wanted to achieve, and you beyond surpassed that!).

Above all, you really took the time to get to know us personally, so that both our tastes and inspirations were incorporated into our special day. We both wanted a modern and chic wedding, however you really played into the romantic feel that I loved, and the creative/artistic edge of Borna’s. Not only that, but you were just as enthusiastic and excited about our wedding as we were! You’re one-of-a-kind Rachel :)

Our sincerest thanks, appreciation and love--
Kat & Borna.

Ps-- Our guests are still talking about how stunning the décor was and how magnificent it looked and felt at our wedding

Rachel Clingen has mastered her craft! She far exceeded our expectations for décor on our wedding day. Most impressive was Rachel’s talent for capturing our unique attributes as a couple; we genuinely felt well represented on our special day. A true rarity, Rachel is simultaneously a visionary and a detail-oriented professional. She values both the gestalt and miniscule niceties which was a refreshing for us.
It truly was a pleasure to work with Rachel, she simplified many elements of our day and for that we are indebted. Best of all – her work was breathtaking, she transformed our reception hall into a magazine cover! We were taken back by the caliber of her work – one of the best surprises of our day!
We wholeheartedly recommend Rachel for your wedding – she delivers beyond expectation!
Thank you Rachel!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rachel and her amazing team.
Not only were you able to execute the vision that i had, you also added your very unique and personal touches throughout our Decor and Flowers.
The ceremony space, cocktail and reception, were all flawless and beyond my expectations. Our head table was jaw dropping and beyond anything imaginable.
You were able to transform the cocktail and reception area,using your beautiful draping,lighting and of course your amazing floral designs.
Thank you for all of your help. Our day would not have been the same without you :)

With a passion for innovation and boldness to push the boundaries of such, Rachel A. Clingen & her team are creating the future landscape of wedding décor.

Working collaboratively with Rachel and Jessy, our wedding décor was an extension of who we are. On October 6th, 2012, Palais Royale in Toronto, Ontario was transformed into a whimsical fairytale. Tufted headboards , sumptuous drapery and crystal chandeliers anchored the space while uniting all design elements. A canopy adorned with paper and fresh floral and suspended candle-lit lanterns created just the right ambiance. The indulgence of sparkle, texture and luxury was instant gratification!

From the initial consultation to final execution, the process was seamless. My expectations for superior client service and professionalism were exceeded. I would recommend Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design with no hesitation!

Rest assured that no detail will be overlooked. Rachel will find purpose and meaning for all your design elements while creating visual harmony and balance.

Owen and I were married on September 28th, 2012 at the Liberty Grand in Toronto and we were fortunate enough to have our florals and décor done by the Rachel A Clingen team.
We met Rachel early on in our wedding planning and could tell right away that she had the creativity and expertise needed to make our vision a reality. We had a good idea of what we were looking for but we needed someone to fill in the gaps and put all of our thoughts together into one cohesive design, and Rachel was able to do just that!
During our planning meetings and calls, Rachel was efficient and effective, making us feel relaxed and at ease, asking us all of the right questions and helping us evaluate our options while staying on budget. On the day of the wedding, the team was there to set up and provided a smooth transition from ceremony to reception. If it wasn't for the beautiful settings they created, we would never have even known they were there!
Ultimately, we wanted to look back on our wedding and be reminded of a classy, elegant day that truly captured our personalities and our love, and Rachel was instrumental in helping us achieve that!
We would highly recommend Rachel A. Clingen Design to any couple looking to make their visions a reality and create a day that will be visually memorable for years to come!

We were married on September 22, 2012 at Windermere House on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka. We had the privileged of working with Rachel and her team for our decor and floral.

If you've ever visited Rachel’s website or seen her displays at a bridal show, you will know that Rachel is incredibly talented at what she does. Her work truly does speak for itself and there is no doubt that she is the best in the wedding industry - and I say that having done my fair share of research and having made my fair share of mistakes along the way!

But to think that Rachel could have created what she did on our big day was simply unimaginable. It was a fantasy wedding in every sense of the word. Everything she did - from the rose pedals down the aisle, to the phalaenopsis orchids, to the handmade birch centrepieces, to the bouquets, to the personalized dance floor, to the room lining, and the list goes on and on - was simply breathtaking. So beautiful, classy and elegant.

What stood out even more was Rachel's personality - her honesty, genuineness, enthusiasm, sincerity and above all, her passion for what she does are truly second to none, and unmatched in the industry. Rachel has an incredible way of making each of her clients feel as though they are the only clients she has. What also stood out was Rachel's flexibility on the day of our wedding and her ability to adapt to the "indoor plan" when the weather man decided that the outdoor wedding we had planned was not in the cards.

From day one, Rachel quickly grasped the "feel" we were going for on our wedding day and she nailed it. It would be an understatement to say that she exceeded our expectations. Our guests were blown away and many commented that they had never seen a wedding so spectacular as ours.

We would highly recommend Rachel and her team to any couple getting married. Rachel's talent, enthusiasm and passion for what she does will exceed your expectations.

Truth be told: Rachel (and her incredible team) saved my wedding. I had booked with another decor company, which turned out to be a big mistake. When I realised my error, I thought it was too late (about 3 months before my wedding!)...so I called the decor company I should have booked with in the first place. Rachel A. Clingen. DONE. I was Floored when I realized she was still available for my date. I had a very specific "Mexican" theme for my wedding, and as soon as I met with Rachel, I knew she was "The One!". She took every single idea I had, and RAN with it. She had a gazillion ideas, and she was just bouncing with them! Until I met with her, I wasn't sure my vision would be able to come to life. The minute I met with her, it was like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Everything from my flowers, to my centrepieces, to the stars she hung from the ceiling of the tent was SPECTACULAR. I am SOOO happy I chose Rachel. She is AMAZING, and a true professional. When I saw everything pulled together, I was in awe!! BEST money we spent on our entire wedding. So worth EVERY cent. Rachel Pulls through with every idea, and every promise. Reasonably priced too! Couldn't have asked for more. Can't thank her and her fabulous team enough! BOOK HER NOW!!! You will not regret it!!

Our wedding took place at the JW Marriott Rosseau Muskoka Resort and Spa in Minett, Muskoka. Our ceremony took place down by the water on a rock called Fish Rock. The weather was on our side with beautiful sunny hot weather the entire weekend. After searching long and hard for a reputable Muskoka florist I came across Rachel A. Clingen and noticed that they would travel to Muskoka. After meeting with Jessy at Rachel Clingen I knew right away I had to book with them. Their basic package really simplified the process and made it easy to choose just what I wanted.
Jessy was a breeze to work with from her easy going personality and her constant communication through email and phone made me feel confident in her attention to detail. All of the in-office meetings were also great as they had many pictures to show us and many different decor options to choose from.
On the day of the wedding it was like Rachel A. Clingen's team was never there. They delivered my bouquet to my hotel room but then I never saw the team again. They set up the ceremony site, and then transferred the decor to the main reception room all so fast and efficiently I never even noticed they were there. My husband and I said that you can tell a company is organized and professional when they can complete a job so effectively they never even had to talk to the bride and groom at any point in our wedding day.
Rachel A. Clingen and her company of workers are the best and they do what they say they are going to do. Jessy understood my rustic vision for decor and when I saw the decor for the first time it took my breath away. I can't say enough good things about this company and would always recommend them to any bride looking for a trustworthy florist and decorator.
Thank you Jessy and the team from Rachel A. Clingen!!!
Lots of Love, Telka & Patrick O'Donovan

Last weekend Rachel and her staff saved the day when due to some logistical issues at a venue, the decorator that we had hired needed help with set-up in a very short time frame. Rachel was gracious enough to offer her staff to help out to make this wedding happen -- I cannot tell you how grateful I was for her help. Thanks to her quick response and professionalism the decor look wonderful and I had a very happy client. Thank you Rachel!!!

We were married on August 11th at the Royal Ambassador in Caldeon. My husband and I were given Rachel's business card from a friend who had been married shortly before us; she came highly recommended. When we met with Rachel we knew instantly we'd be booking with her. Seeing as how we did not want a traditional Italian wedding, we found most florists/decor companies tried to sell you their ideas and insisted we "HAD" to do things a certain way. We loved Rachel because right from the first meeting she understood us and our vision. Every suggestion or idea she had was perfect and fit with our wedding. Not being the biggest fan of flowers, I had no idea what I wanted my bouquet or the centerpieces to look like. Weeks before the wedding I told Rachel to do whatever she thought would look good, after all she's the expert. When the bouquets were delivered to the house, I was extremely happy with the way they turned out and the centerpieces were perfect. Without being able to explain anything I wanted to her, she managed to make exactly what I wanted.

Working with Jessy and communicating back and forth was great. She was always quick to respond to my questions and was very organized which made the entire process so easy for us.

We highly recommend Rachel and her team. With so many things to work about on your wedding day, it's nice to have a team working so hard to ensure everything is perfect, so you don't have to.

My husband Kevin and I were married on July 27th, 2012. The ceremony was at a beautiful cathedral downtown Toronto and the reception was later held at Palais Royale Ballroom. We used Rachel A. Clingen and her team for décor and flowers, and we are so happy that we did!

Kevin and I first met with Rachel and Jessy and after our first meeting, we knew they were perfect for us. We told them our vision and what our expectations were for our dream wedding, and they provided us with so many detailed options. They didn’t stop with suggestions until they knew we were happy.

On our wedding day, Rachel had executed every detail perfectly. From the colour of every flower in my bouquet and arrangements, to the set-up of each and every table, she made sure that my vision came to life.

I would highly recommend Rachel A. Clingen and her team for any event. I couldn’t be happier with how my wedding turned out thanks to them!

We got married July 21, 2012 @ The Manor Event Venue in Kettleby, On. Rachel A. Clingen provided both floral and decor for our wedding and we were 100% pleased with their service. We had seen the amazing work they did at a friend of ours' wedding and they were the first place we called when we got engaged and we booked right away. We had full confidence in this team and they provided us with the wedding we invisioned and they really cared to make us happy on our special day. I keep looking back at the pictures of our flowers and the decor from our head table; they did such an amazing job...I loved it!!! We worked with both Jessy and Rachel during the whole process and they were always on the same page and really showed such professionalism...I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for floral and decor services. Planning a wedding is not cheap, but they definitely helped us stay in our budget and still have the wedding we dreamed of...Thanks so much Jessy, Rachel & team!!!

Jessy from Rachel Clingen Designs was absolutely incredible in making our vision come true for our July wedding at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville. From the moment we met her, we felt extremely confident in putting the decor and flowers in her hands. She was a pleasure to work with, the wedding was beautiful, and Rachel Clingen Designs comes with our highest recommendations.

We found Rachel Clingen online when we began to plan our wedding. Her website and reviews led us to Rachel's showroom for an appointment. After meeting with Rachel, she instantly saw our vision and made it come alive.
Throughout the planning process, we changed our mind on a couple of items. In doing so, Rachel and Jessy were always accommodating and supportive of our decisions. They consistently stood by our vision and requests with professionalism.
On our wedding day, we couldn't have asked for better service. From the flowers, to the amazing backdrop, to the decor on our head tables, guests were praising the magazine style work. Steve and I couldn't have been more thrilled when we walked into the hall to see such a beautiful set up. We cannot thank Rachel Clingen, Jessy and company for giving us the most spectacular set up a bride and groom could ask for. If you're looking for professional and gorgeous work, Steve and I highly recommend Rachel Clingen.
Thanks for everything!

I cannot even articulate how fortunate we are to have found Rachel A. Clingen Wedding Design! Rachel did our decor and flowers and I couldn't have been happier. Right from the beginning I had a vision and she picked up on it right away and soon got as excited about it as I was (if not more so). When I walked into our hall I was completely blown away. She went above and beyond what we expected with our decor. Our flower arrangements, backdrop/head table and centre pieces were absolutely breathtaking. She captured exactly what we wanted! And our bouquets were so perfect! I wish I could keep mine alive forever! All of our guests commented that it was the nicest decor they had ever seen at a wedding, very classy, elegant and upscale. Rachel and Jessy were both so wonderful to work with and I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a decorator! With them you can have peace of mind knowing that when you walk into your hall you will be thrilled. They are true professionals and we're so happy we used them!

Thank you for everything!

When I say I know Pink, I really know Pink. Not the barbie kind, nor the trashy kind... The chic, classy pink which is not easy to bring out. I never thought anyone knew Pink the way I did... However, I was proved wrong. Rachel really knows her Pink the way I did!! That was proven when I went to her Thornhill Office. My Pink wedding was more than perfect with Rachel and Jessy on the team.

Wedding planning and finding your perfect vendor takes a lot of research. There's a lot out there. Every night my mother, who lives in Tokyo and I would go on skype and compare the vendors we found online. Fortunately, she found Rachel's website and the photos of the beautiful pink topiary balls which was the reason why I called her to book an appointment for the same week. Walking into her office, I instantly knew I could trust her taste.

Finding a vendor for your wedding is easy. There's so much out there. And everyone seems to be in this wedding business. But finding a vendor to fully understand and see your vision for your wedding isn't easy. However, Rachel and Jessy both saw a clear vision of our wedding day just the way we did. Also, no matter how busy Jessy and Rachel were, we were always communicating.
Thank you so much Jessy and Rachel. We can not express our joy and appreciation to you. We cannot seriously imagine what our wedding would have been like without you two.

Thank you!

Jija and Ming-Yi

PS just so we can have you do our flowers and drapings again, I might consider renewing our vows soon :) (Don't tell Ming I said that! hehe)

What an amazing experience it was working with Rachel and Jessy. As soon as we were engaged we knew we wanted a small wedding. Initially it was so difficult to find a decorator who aligned with our vision- until we found Rachel A Clingen Designs.
Jessy was amazing from the beginning and really helped to make our vision a reality. Every moment of planning was stress free and our wedding turned out beautifully.

Rachel and her team took care of all of the floral as well as decor for our wedding day (flowers, backdrop, lighting, etc.) - it was stunning and elegant!

Working with Rachel and Jessy throughout the planning process was a pleasure. They had fantastic ideas and variations and helped us stay on budget. I would recommend Rachel A. Clingen to anyone looking for floral/decor services. She is truly brilliant in her ideas and designs and we received numerous compliments from our guests.

Thank you so much Rachel, Jessy and the rest of the team for making our day absolutely magical!

Rachel Clingen and her team created the most amazing, dreamlike wedding day experience for me and my husband. Walking into our reception was like a refined, mature and elegant version of all my childhood wedding dreams coming true. When I told Rachel I wanted it to feel like an english garden, she ran with the idea and created a scene that in my opinion rivals any english garden out there. Our guests were completely blown away.
To say that Rachel and her team went above and beyond my expectations is an understatement.

We chose Rachel,not only for her sense of style, and how well she understood and added to my vision, but because the team she chooses to work with are good people. They are kind, respectful, and weddings to them are not just their job, they actually love what they do, and it shows throughout their work and they way they operate their business.

As a bride I wanted to work with people who treated me like I was their only client. This is the type of service you get at Rachel A. Clingen.

I got married on May 20 at George Restaurant, downtown Toronto. The venue already has a lot of character, so all it needed was just the right decorative elements to really enhance it. I went to Rachel with a theme that was deco-modern, black & gold. My background is in design, so typically I am inclined to be very specific about visuals... but when I met with Rachel, I didn't need to say much at all in order for her to connect with the mood and style we wanted. Rachel was so passionate, creative and quick to suggest great ideas. Her portfolio is amazing and her enthusiasm is infectious. I immediately trusted her suggestions and wanted her to do what she does best, because her level of talent is a sure thing. Rachel basically said "don't worry, I'll make it beautiful for you" and that was it - I felt completely confident that she would deliver nothing less. On the day of, we were thrilled to see how the room came together. The florals and decor carried the theme beautifully - it was chic, sophisticated and JUST what we wanted. We truly appreciate that Rachel showed genuine interest in our wedding, she was sensitive to our budget, and went above and beyond to add special touches for us. Her service and skills are top notch!

We had the pleasure of working with Rachel and their team for our May 12, 2012 wedding. Rachel provided us with stunning flowers and breathtaking centerpieces for our wedding. She was so easy to work with, she listened to what we were envisioning and made wonderful suggestions. She was always very honest when we asked her what she thought of something and offered alternatives if something would not work. Rachel was very professional and communicative. The day of the wedding the flowers were all delivered in plenty of time and the set-up for the ceremony was absolutely beautiful! When I walked into the room I began to cry and shiver, it was so magical and something I have never seen before. The details and the love she put into that day of our wedding really showed. Not only was I excited to see the end result but Rachel was so excited. She had envisioned designs during her naps and would call me to suggest ideas that I cannot believe would come to life. The word "MAGICAL" came to life on my wedding day all because of Rachel inspiring work. We received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful all of our flowers and decor were. Guest were commenting on how incredible our head table was and that they have never seen anything like it. We only have the nicest things to say about Rachel Clingen and her floral and decor creations. Rachel truly has a gift given to her from God, the gift of design. This shows through her work and dedication. Rachel Thank You for making our day so magical.

I got married on May 5, 2012 to the most amazing man! We got married at Trinity Chapel on the U of T Campus and our reception was a the Rosewater Room. Both venues are so unique and elegant and to compliment the already beautiful architecture, I had a very specific vision for the décor and flowers . I visited the Bridal show in January and this is where I came upon Rachel Clingen designs. As soon as I met Rachel and Jessy I knew that I had to hire them to design our wedding – they just got “it” and their design esthetic is spot on. I worked with Jessy and throughout the entire process she provided outstanding service. She knew how to really listen and understand what the vision was. She made it easy to make decisions and her enthusiastic and genuine caring made everything even that much more exciting for us!
On the wedding day I couldn't have been more relaxed because I had 100% confidence in Jessy. When I first saw Trinity Chapel, it took my breath away (and so did my new Husband of course!). It exceeded my expectations! The flowers, the trees, the jewels and candles were just so beautiful. When I saw Rosewater, again I was blown away by the beauty and elegance! It was all that I had envisioned and so much more. The attention to every detail was amazing – it all came to life so beautifully. Our guests have all said that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to and we would have to agree!
I have been telling everyone I know to work with Rachel Clingen designs because you not only get exceptional décor and fresh flowers but you also get wonderful, genuine and caring service.

I married my soul mate just last week, and we had our share of horrible vendors who just wanted our money and didn't care about our special day. Jessie at Rachel A. Clingen was AMAZING! There really is NOTHING bad I can say about her and the Rachel A. Clingen crew! Jessie met with me on several occasions and I just got an amazing vibe from her every time. She genuinely cares about what she does, everything she promised, she delivered and she had a solution for every problem I threw at her. I gave them an idea for our center pieces and they ran with it, and created something more beautiful then I could have imagined. You can check out the pictures on their Facebook page (February 25th @ The Royal Ambassador in Caledon, On) Thanks so much to this amazing crew! Bruno and I are so happy and we would not have changed anything,

Thanks again,

Words cannot express how beautiful the venue looked when we walked in. The place had the most magical ambience, set the exact feel and exceeded our expectations to no end. It was unbelievably beautiful and we had so many compliments, it truely was spectacular. I have no hesitations to work with Jessy and her team at Rachel Clingen again, and will definitely use them when my other two sons get married. Jessy was amazing and guided us, answered all questions we had and made the whole process so stress free. She is an amazing person, takes pride in her work, excellent customer service and her experience is phenomenal! I would recommend this vendor to all future brides...you will definitely not be disappointed!!

Rachel and her team were a pleasure to work with. They responded quickly to all my emails and questions, and were very flexible with all the last minute changes my husband and I made to our day.

Jessy and Rachel were friendly, approachable and had a great eye for detail. Our day was absolutely beautiful and I would recommend this team to anyone. They were efficient, and able to steer us in the right direction when we needed some guidance.

You will not be disappointed!

I married my best friend on September 10th, 2011 at The Raven @ Lora Bay Golf Course in Thornbury, Ontario. The setting was trees and nature - charming & green. We wanted to focus on a tree theme which in my head called for real tree stump centerpices! Not too much to ask I thought. After being turned away from every florist in town, I finally found Jessy! The word no does not exist in her vocabulary, she got my vision like she was inside my head.

I have worked with a number of vendors during events when it comes to decor at a largly known venue in Collingwood and I can tell you from expereince Racheal A Clingen Wedding and Event Design surpasses all others. The professionalism is unmatched, they are extremly aware of budget requirments, and they give you a worry free experience during the entire planning stages.

Jessy had a tall order to fill, not only did I ask for trees but I also put her against a two hour flip time at the venue! To Jessy this wasn't even an issue she was so confident in her team she didn't even break stride.
During the planning stages I was always throughing new ideas and flowers choices at Jessy and she too would brainstorm creative ideas or color choices, while all at the same time alway keeping me on track and on budget.

Rachel A Clingen is a team of true professionals, they are an inspirational team that create beauitful dreams and images. Planning a wedding is difficult and you only get one shot. Don't think twice about anyone else as Rachel A Clingen is the right decision from begining to end.

My husband and I got married on August 27, 2011 at Fort Henry in Kingston Ontario. The setting was a 19th century limestone fort - very grand and epic, but basically a blank slate. We wanted to bring a bit of softness and modernism to this historic site to make a classic and elegant event. Using Rachel Clingen and her team was amazing!!! I would highly highly highly recommend this to any bride and groom who want a wedding that people will talk about for years to come.

I knew that on the day of I didn't want to have to worry about setting up decor, making sure everything was in order and looking after each detail. I needed a team who I knew I could trust and that they would bring my vision to life - Rachel Clingen was the right choice. On the day of the wedidng I was completely relaxed and able to enjoy every moment without a hint of worry that something wasn't going right at the venue. When we pulled up and I got to see the ceremony site and reception site for the first time - I was speechless. Everything was even better than I had envisioned.

I chose simple colours - ivory, champagne, greens and gold, and wanted draping, crystals and candles to be the accents. Everyone from my wedding is saying that it was straight out of a magazine!

The whole process was fantastic. Rachels team was phenomonal to work with. Jessy Toomy was my consultant - and was such a pleasure. I emailed throughout the entire year with new ideas, additions etc, and Jessy was so great to chat to, bounce ideas off and talk things through. She was great at giving her professional opinion and helping me make the right choices for the vision.

In terms of value - worth every penny!! If you want a wedidng to be spectacular and effortless then hire Rachel Clingen.

RACHEL MAKES YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. When i first met Rachel to discuss our August 2011 wedding this spring, i instantly knew that she possessed the passion, dedication and know-how to make our special day exactly what we were looking for. With my husband's career as custom home designer and me in PR and events we had high-expectaions and a long list of demands. Rachel and her team came through on every detail finding a way to satisfy both of us. Our head table seated 24 guests and was right out of a vanity fair shoot. All of our guests were in awe, saying it was the prettiest wedding they had even been to. Thank you rachel and your team for being so awesome.

When my husband (!)and I first became engaged neither one of us really had a "vision" of what we wanted our special day to look like. We would spend hours online looking at various decor ideas, until we had a couple ideas... all we knew was that we wanted a "crystal" theme and a manzanita tree. One day when I was talking to my husband's sister, she mentioned Rachel. My husband's sister had used Rachel for her decor 8 years ago. We immediately loooked up Rachel's website and Facebook page. We were astounded by all the creative decor and floral ideas and immediately called to schedule an appointment. At our first appointment with Rachel, we let her know our two ideas and she turned them into an entire theme!! We couldn't believe how incredibly creative Rachel was and how many ideas she was able to come up with in such a short amount of time. We knew we would be in good hands and immediately booked Rachel. When we met with Rachel to go over the details of our ceremony and reception, she had even more ideas and turned what would of already been a great day into a spectacular day! On the day of the wedding, I have to admit that I was excited to walk down the aisle. The most important reason was of course to marry my husband but I also couldn't wait to see what Rachel had done with the decor in the church. I walked down the aisle at St. George's Greek Orthodox Church and was overwhelmed trying to take everything in..from the aisle decor to the topiary balls in silver urns on the plexi stands to my lovely husband waiting for me at the end of the aisle. Everything looked amazing! Family and friends commented that they have never seen our church look soo beautiful before. That was just the beginning! Throughout the planning process, my husband and I talked about how amazing it would feel walking into our reception at the Rosewater Room for the first time. We could never have imagined what we felt when we walked in! There was a gorgeous silver manzanita tree draped with crystals, crystal tea light holders and flowers to welcome our guests. AND Rachel was there! She waited for us to arrive to go through the room with us to make sure we were 110% happy! Talk about service! When we walked into our main room we were truly taken back. Everything looked absolutely amazing right down to the smallest detail. Working with Rachel and Jessy was absolutely amazing. Throughout the entire process they provided exceptional service, suggested great ideas, always responded promptly to all questions, and the service on the day of was amazing. Anyone who bookes with Rachel and Jessy can rest assure that they will not have any worries on their special day! Thank you Rachel and Jessy!

My name is Kimberly, and my husband Nathan and I decided to hire Rachel and her team for our July 9th wedding at the Arcadian Court in Downtown Toronto. We first got Rachel's name because we were blown away by her work at another wedding we attended - the decor was so gorgeous we just had to get her details!

When we got engaged, Rachel was the FIRST person we hired, even before a photographer, and before we had even finalized the venue! Of all of the vendors we had, Rachel was the best decision we could have made. From the very first consultation, we already felt like Rachel 'understood' us. She made a point of getting to know us and our sense of style so she could design something unique and specific. We just loved how excited she would get over the details of our wedding, it made us feel so cared about and like our wedding would be something truly special. And it was!

The wedding decor was something out of a fairy tale! The first time I saw it I was absolutely in awe and couldn't stop smiling the rest of the night!!! The centrepieces, head table, bridal flowers, backdrop, were absolutely everything I could have dreamed of. Just like something out of a magazine. It wasn't just the big details that Rachel got right... it was all the little details from the corsages, to the crystal package on our head table, even my bouquet had little diamonds inside! So detailed!

Rachel was there every step of the way for us: If we wanted to discuss something she was always available to chat and give us advice or feedback. It's so obvious that Rachel loves her work, and she really had the same excitement for our wedding that we had ourselves. Now THAT's something you want in a designer:-)

Thank you Rachel for making our wedding an absolute dream come true!! xoxo Kimberly and Nathan.

We got married on June 25, 2011 in Brantford, ON in an outdoor 100' x 60' tent. The planning started many many months in advance, and Rachel was absolutely amazing with getting an understanding of our thoughts for the look and feel of the reception. What we both loved most about Rachel and her team is they first listened to us, and then made suggestions on how to improve our ideas! Truly professional. We have had nothing but people ranting and raving about how amazing our tent looked. From the floral designs to the drapery to the LED lighting, everything was exactly what we had dreamed it would be! Thanks again Rachel and team!

She worked with me so well, from my budget to my colour schemes everything was perfect. If your looking for someone to do it all , she is the lady to call. I would highly highly recommend her to anybody!! She helped make my day the most beautiful it could be all within my budget. Her response time to my calls and emails was immediate, and was super friendly and helpful in all of her work. My flowers were fantastic and I still have people complimenting me on all my decor. My day wouldn't have been as special without her. Thank- you to Rachel and Jesse for all of your hard work!!!

My husband and I had our wedding at Liberty Grand in the Artifacts Room. We came to Rachel with very specific Colours and details in mind months before the wedding. Within 30 minutes of meeting Rachel, I felt at ease and she truly understood our vision.
Rachel truly made our dreams a reality! She provided her relentless efforts in delivering every little detail down to perfection. She is talented, full spirited, easy going and is a great listener. She took every measure to ensure we were happy with all the details and always made herself available at all times. In the end, she went above above and beyond! Truly an unforgettable experience!

Brides, we all stress for things to pan out perfectly on our big day, but try to relax and enjoy the moment. Always be thankful for family and friends that stand by you. It's a blessing to have loved ones support and love you the whole way through. Most importantly, have fun! :)

At the time when my husband and I were looking for a decorator for our wedding, we knew we wanted a beautiful and unique wedding that would speak for itself and that's exactly what Rachel A. Clingen Wedding, Event and Seasonal Design  gave us! We were referred to her by a friend who's wedding she had also done and she did a magnificent job! So we were hooked immediately! One of the things I also liked best about R.A.C. was that she doesn't stay hidden behind her company name, rather you speak and meet with and consult with her, so you get to see everything upfront and personal and feel confidant about who's taking care of your special day. She keeps up with her website and blog so you just don't see one or two beautiful weddings but many beautiful weddings all unique to it's own and yet your very own wedding will also be unique and one of a kind! 

Our ceremony and reception took place on Saturday, May 15, 2010 and it was the most beautiful decoration we had ever seen. Rachel captured timeless beauty, elegance and magnificent details in which to this day our guests still speak of our wedding!

I recommend Rachel A. Clingen to any future bride who is looking for a reputable company, perfection, affordability and absolute beauty and elegance to book their wedding with R.A.C. There isn't any other out there like her! 

Still ecstatic or our fabulous wedding!

Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design provided the beautiful floral and decor for my wedding in August 2008 at The Royal Ambassador in Caledon. Having known Rachel for years, I was confident that she would be able to capture my style and vision perfectly. Rachel and the team did that and more! My husband and I were totally floored when we saw the room for the first time, and our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful it all looked and unlike anything they'd ever seen before! We are forever grateful for the wonderful work and extra little details that went in to everything they did for us that day. We can't thank them enough!

Though it has taken some time to finally write this review, I remember my incredible experience with Rachel A Clingen Wedding Design as if it were yesterday. Dave, Rachel and Jessy work together as a tremendous team. I came with the vision for our decor and they took care of the rest. It was easy for us to come up with our theme for the decor, but difficult for me to envision how it was all going to come together, as I'm not great with all the little details. However with the teams help, we were able to capture exactly the look that we wanted. Sometimes the consultation process can be a little daunting. This is not the case with Rachel and Jessy however. They are so fun and energetic to be around and this takes so much of the stress out of planning. I would highly recommend their first rate decor services. Thank you RAC!

When I began planning my wedding, to say that I was overwhelmed by the decisions to be made and the choices available for floral and decor services would be putting it mildly. The first time I met Rachel, I knew immediately that she was going to turn my wedding day into the fairy tale that I had envisioned it to be. She took my awkward descriptions and crazy requests and turned them into a beautiful reality, one that I will never forget.
It's very rare that you have the opportunity to work with someone who is so perfectly suited to what they do, but Rachel is one of those people. She is a truly talented and generous individual who treats each one of her brides as the individuals that they are and creates for them their vision, their fairy tale. She has this ability to listen to and read her brides in a way that no one I've ever worked with has. She instantly makes you feel comfortable in her presence. The moment you step into her amazing studio, you feel as though you've been transported into another world.
With Rachel and her team, you can rest assured that your wedding day will be perfect. It will be done with style, with grace and with the highest level of skill. There will be things that you will worry about on your wedding day. If you decide to work with Rachel, you can scratch flowers and decor off of that worry list.

Rachel A Clingen along with Jessy and her team did all the flowers and decor for my wedding at the Liberty Grand on August 24th, 2013. I happened to find Rachel while browsing through numerous websites and I am SO GLAD that i did. From the moment I saw her work...And along with my mom we knew without a doubt she would be the best person for the job!

The flowers/decor very important elements to me and at first I was pretty overwhelmed with the choices, but after figuring out what I wanted Jessy more than made sure that my ideas were understood and implemented perfectly! Even being extremely specific in my requests, she was always gracious and understanding and completely gave us exactly what we wanted. I was so awestruck walking into the venue for the first time, it could not have come out any better! Even my husband (who had no care about flowers) was so impressed with the way everything looked... it was so beautiful!

I would highly recommend the Rachel A Clingen team to anyone as a vendor. They're work and attitude is top notch, I am so glad to have used them for my wedding. Thank you again for helping make our wedding a dream :)

It was a true pleasure working with Rachel and Jessy and they far exceeded our expectations!

Rachel is a visionary - a true artist with extremely creative and cohesive designs. I was always inspired by her unique ideas and imagination... I left every meeting more excited for my wedding than I'd ever been, which I thought was impossible!

Previously, I met with other wedding decorators and they had no design sense - they were purely 'decor providers;' whereas, Rachel had such wonderful visions and was very inspirational.

They truly went above-and-beyond in every sense and made our wedding day SO special. Additionally, their professionalism, quick responses, and desire to please left me at ease knowing I could trust them.

My husband and I live in downtown Toronto and rented a car for our meetings - it was WELL worth it and I would definitely do it again!

I highly recommend working with Rachel A. Clingen on your wedding day, especially if you are looking for "outside-of-the-box" designs and a day so unique you can call it your own.

Amazing!!! Rachel and her team were so helpful and made our wedding better then we could have ever imagined. Rachel has an unbelievable ability to envision every little detail. We had a 80' by 160' tent and it looked better then most high end hotel ballrooms! Our wedding was absolutely magical. The floral was stunning and the centerpieces were so creative. The best thing we did was have Rachel and her team do our wedding I didn't have worry in the world everything was done above and beyond our expectations! The ceremony was perfect! From the floral hanging baskets to the petals down the isle everything was stunning

Rachel and her team did an incredible job with the flowers and decor of my wedding. Not only did everything look incredibly beautiful, but working with Rachel leading up to my wedding was such a comfortable experience. She truly cares about each of her clients and will never leave you hanging with any question, idea, phone call or email. Another reason why I chose to work with Rachel, is that she has so many choices in terms of glass ware and decor, and is always looking to expand her inventory. All of my guests, including myself were absolutely floored by the fine details and design of my wedding. Thank you Rachel and your team for executing such a flawless job that people are still talking about.

Working with Rachel and Jesse on our wedding was a breeze!
Having little to no experience with decorating and flowers, my fiance and I came to Rachel with some very basic and underdeveloped ideas; while I tend to gravitate towards rustic and vintage-inspired looks, my now-husband has a strong preference for high quality and clean lines. Rachel was able to fuse our preferences and create a fabulous vintage-inspired shabby chic look that perfectly suited our Muskoka venue. Our guests were genuinely impressed with the way our wedding was so..."us" and we too were thrilled that the decor and flowers so seamlessly captured who we are, individually and as a couple. On a very personal level, Rachel's expertise made MY day a cinch - on the big day, I was able to sleep in, take care of myself and spend some quality time with my girlfriends before the day's festivities got underway. Rachel and her team took care of every detail, big and small, and my husband and I were free to have a blast!

If you are looking for a company to do it all, and BEAUTIFULLY - Rachel Clingen is the way to go. We hired them to do our flowers and decor for the ceremony and reception and were not let down - in fact we we were totally blown away. Jessy was so helpful in quickly responding to emails and calls and held our hand through the planning and choosing decor. The final results were breathtaking - our guests are still calling and emailing about how beautiful everything was.
If you want a stress free approach to making your day gorgeous and absolutely 100% stress free i would highly recommend them - i don't know what i would have done without them. A special thank you to Jessy who was so professional and helpful the whole way through.

I was helping my dad to plan his wedding from the State and Jessy was very helpful and flexible with me since most of the time we have to communicate through emails. She never delay responding my emails and have remained a very professional manner during the whole time.

I have to thank them again here for adding an extra decoration pieces for my dad's wedding. A lot of guests were taking pictures of the backdrop and head table as they did an excellent job. I do have to admit they are pricier than some decorators; but everyone can tell it worth the price.

The beauty in Rachel's ad in a local newpaper caught my eye which prompted my to check out her website. I loved what I saw but thought there was no way I would be able to afford her service. I decided to check it out anyway. I made an appointment with Jessy who showed me that she could work with my budget. She was great to work with. Jessy helped me turn my vision into a reality by showing me examples and making suggestions. She was always quick to reply to emails, answering all my questions. I couldn't wait to see how it would all come together. On the big day, every thing looked amazing! Rachel and her team had exceeded my expectations. My head table was gorgeous! Many of my guests told me that it looked like it was right out of a magazine.

Hi there,
So sorry to hear that you felt that our services were not worth the money you spent. We work very hard to ensure our design and services are more then worth the price tag attached. Since you have not left your name or wedding date or the particulars of your wedding that you feel were not worth the money, we are unable to assess how we might be able to improve the value of our services. If you are able, we would love to get some more information, and would love it if you could call the office at 905 763 7700. Rachel will be eager to get your feedback.
