Designs by Courtney
We just can't say enough good things about Courtney and her work! By far, she was the best vendor we worked with and would HIGHLY recommend her to any future brides and grooms out there. We came to our first meeting with her a bit unsure of what we were looking for beyond colors. Courtney had so many great ideas that fit with the feel we wanted, things that we would have never thought about! Her quote was so impressive, it had color photos of the arrangements and flowers we discussed along with all the necessary information and pricing. We had a specific budget in mind and she was more than willing to work within it and everything turned out absolutely amazing! She truly went above and beyond for our big day! All of our guests kept commenting on the flowers and decor, telling us how beautiful everything looked.

I love Courtney! From the moment i had my consultation with her I knew she was the one to be my wedding florist. We just clicked! We met at Starbucks and tossed ideas about flowers and arrangements...she sent me a detailed email with different options along with photos and I loved it! She was definitely on the same page with me on the vision. And when I saw the final products I couldn't have been happier. I know she put a lot of love into what she does and it really showed. The ceremony arrangements were GORGEOUS! So were all the bouquets including mine which was large and abundant with peonies and garden roses. It was the romantic modern look I was wanting! I will swoon about my wedding flowers for the rest of my days!
Courtney did a beautiful job on our wedding flowers! As part of her sample estimate, she helpfully provided us with color pictures showing different examples of bouquets and other arrangements - this made the selection process much easier. She even sent us actual ribbon and wire samples so we could choose exactly the right colors. Her creativity, attention to detail, competitive pricing, and friendly personality are top notch - it was a pleasure to work with her!
Courtney is amazing for so many reasons it will be hard to list them all!
She was always willing to talk with us about ideas and answer questions. She was willing to meet face to face, talk on the phone, internet, whatever was most convenient for us. She had great ideas when we couldn't think of how we wanted things exactly. And even some of our more "odd" requests (we wanted a few specific flowers for personal reasons, but they didn't necessarily go together), she made look even better than I thought possible. My bridal bouquet and all my girls' flowers were perfect. The chapel flowers were perfect and the reception flowers were perfect. I'm not a particularly sentimental person, but when I walked into our chapel and saw how beautiful she made it without being overdone, I honestly felt a few little tears of joy because I knew that no matter what, it was going to be a beautiful wedding. We've had so many people tell us how beautiful they thought everything was, making particular note of our flowers. Also, Courtney is a really nice person who is really easy to work with. She is pleasant and will listen to your ideas and that is so important when planning a wedding! Our wedding was beautiful and a big part of that was because of her. We love Courtney!!!
Courtney was very quick to connect with me on the themes and ideas I was thinking of for my wedding. The options out there are so enormous and overwhelming and it was such a joy to connect with Courtney and leave all the choices and direction in her capable hands. She listens very well, offers up innovative suggestions (the votive candle wall behind us was simply amazing) and has fun through the whole experience. The quality of the flowers was superb, the creative combinations perfect for our herb garden wedding at Willows Lodge. She was totally reliable and her follow through exceptional. Thanks to Courtney, our special day was an amazing one - and I was a totally relaxed and stress free bride :)
Courtney was a joy to work with and her floral arrangements were absolutely gorgeous. She made outstanding efforts to match our colors, style, and design ideas into each of the floral arrangements and centerpieces. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, incorporating unique touches into the flowers and was very flexible with our changing needs. Courtney created the most beautiful flower arrangements for a fantastic price. I highly recommend her to everyone.
Working with Courtney was THE BEST! She was an absolute diamond in the rough, and by far my very favorite wedding vendor. She really listened and remembered my feedback, and didn't try to force me to embrace looks that I didn't care for. She was realistic about costs, helped me get some normally very expensive flowers (exotic orchids and out-of-season hyacinths) at amazing prices, because she's savvy and knows how to look online for better deals, etc.
She also let me borrow instead of renting certain items that were being used at other weddings close to my date, and she brought in a bunch of extra blooms that she just happened to have, all without charging of course. Everyone was flabbergasted when I told them how little we spent for our wedding flowers!
Plus, and this is the best part, she put up with frequent and lengthy and demanding email exchanges with me, she came to us and met with us for as long as we needed to discuss pictures and ideas, and she even had me out to her garage workshop so we could play with the actual flowers I was envisioning and decide exactly how we wanted everything arranged. (And she charged me, like, $20 for this process just for the flowers she had special-ordered for that purpose, and I got to keep all the trial arrangements!)
Seriously, this girl is a gem. And her pricing is killer. Get her while she's still new to the scene and you will NOT be disappointed! (Oh, and she takes PayPal. How much better does it get?)
Courtney was amazing, she had some great ideas to get us started and did a fabulous job! She also had some other great ideas in addition to flowers, like her candy station jars she rented to us, which turned out to be a huge hit! She was wonderful!
Courtney is amazing! I recommend Courtney for anyone looking for a florist for any event. It was so exciting to see the final flower arrangements, everything was perfect and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful display of flowers. This is the third wedding Courtney has done for our family and we couldn't have found a better florist. Her work is incredible and very creative. I loved my flowers and still can't get over how blown away I was when I first saw them!
Courtney was very helpful! I was lost thru the whole process and she helped me thru it. Everyone loved my flowers and for the price it was even better! I truly would recommend her work! Thanks again Courtney!
I cannot say how happy I am to have chosen Designs By Courtney as the florist for my wedding! Courtney was incredibly kind, professional,knowledgable, and creative. My wedding was in January and I had an idea of what I wanted the theme of my wedding to be, but it became so much more than what I imagined from the beautiful work that Courtney did. I enjoyed working with Courtney throughout the planning process and was always comfortable contacting her with any questions. She would take my ideas and not just come up with great options and suggestions, but send me pictures so that I could vizualize the end result, making it easy to make decisions that I felt great about. I ended up turning to her with things that I had originally planned on trying to do myself because she was so awesome and her pricing was so reasonable.
Courtney is amazing! She did a flawless job and was able to completely work within my budget. She is very knowledgeable, any time I described a flower I had seen in a magazine or something, she was able to find it in one of her many books that she brought with her to our first appointment. Courtney was finishing her Bachelors degree at the UW during my wedding planning and yet she was always available and was very prompt in responding to my emails. I could go on on. My wedding day turned out more beautiful than I had even planned. It was creative and fresh and I loved it. I wouldn't change a thing! I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Courtney is a fantastic florist! She is extremely talented and creative, as well as professional, patient, and a hard worker. She met with us twice to plan the flowers for our wedding, and was great about email communication and attention to detail. She had great ideas and suggestions that allowed us to make the most of our flower budget, and went out of her way to find just the right pots for our favor table display, etc. We were absolutely blown away by her arrangements- they were the most beautiful flowers we'd ever seen! We'd recommend Courtney to anyone- you'd be hard pressed to find such a great florist at such a reasonable price.
I want to thank you again for doing all the flowers. You are absolutely amazing!! I have no idea how you created such beauty
for the wedding, but it was a hit! Several of my friends have e-mailed or called and all of them remarked about the unique
flowers, the vibrant colors, and the festive tables. I loved the way you did the tables. You really outdid yourself. It was picture
perfect!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! As you know I was at the initial consultation with Stephanie. You have managed
to put every one of her requests into the flower arrangements. I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends.
From my first contact with Courtney, I felt completely confident and at ease, knowing that my wedding flowers would turn out perfect.
At first I did not know exactly what I was looking for but after sitting down initially together and figuring out my style, she met with me and contacted me on multiple occassions to make sure I got exactly what I had come to envision. She showered me with pictures and ribbon samples, making sure that the colors and style were just right. She accompanied me to the actual wedding site to confirm exactly what I had envisioned. All of these efforts, which she made without me asking, helped to make me feel completely confident and at ease before and on the day of my wedding, as well as, allowing me more time to focus on other things.
My wedding day went so fast that it is still a blur but one thing that is clear in my mind is my initial words when I saw my flowers and decor for the first time, "They are so vibrant and beautiful! They are way prettier than I envisioned!" "Simple, elegant, romantic and vibrant" are the words I would use describe the flowers and decor on my wedding day and "stress free, confident and joyful" are the words I would use to describe how Courtney made me feel leading up to and on my wedding day.
