As a visual merchandiser the aesthetic of my wedding was in my top 3 list of priorities. I knew I was in great hands after the first meeting I had with Rachel Clingen and her team. They were so helpful, very professional and met my every request. I have been told that I had one of the most beautiful and unique chuppahs anyone had seen and this meant the world to me as a I strive for creating uniqueness, originality and beauty in my own career and I was so pleased and amazed this team not only strive for these very same fundamentals but over achieve by a long shot! Thank you so much for bringing my vision to life and creating the most beautiful backdrop for the next chapter in our love story. It is a day we will never forget, and I hope for many more wonderful occasions in which we will be able to work together again!
Working with Rachel A Clingen and her team was for me the definition of getting my dream wedding. She was the first decorator I went to see and after our first meeting I knew we didn't need to meet with anyone else. We hired her on the spot. The team there are so responsive and professional, that it makes you feel like your wedding is the only one that matters, regardless of your budget. Both Stephanie and Jessie were always available to make changes on the fly, and they were always open to my ideas, and came to the table with so many of there own. I really felt like we were working together as a team, which was important for me as I had a very specific idea of how I wanted everything to come together. Each time I went to see them they showed such enthusiasm about my upcoming event that it made me feel like I would be walking into the most beautiful wedding I had ever seen. And that's exactly what happened on the wedding day. It was everything I had ever dreamed of and more. The head table lit up like something out of a fairy tale and the florals were absolutely perfect.
If you are getting married and want something that resembles that of the perfect wedding you've seen on Pinterest or in a magazine, then there's no question that this is the team you want to work with.
Rachel A Clingen made my wedding look like something from a magazine!! It was so incredibly beautiful, and I was told my numerous people it was the most beautiful wedding they've been to. They took the picture I had envisioned in my head and made it real. I'm so thankful I chose them for my decor!
I've known Rachel for a long time, and ever since Jordan and I started dating, I knew Rachel was the one I wanted to do my wedding :) Rachel and her team are beyond amazing at what they do. Rachel acts as if you are the only bride she is working with, and makes you feel like your wedding is the best of the year! She has so many creative ideas that I would have never thought of. Rachel made me so stress free when discussing wedding decor and flowers. Both her and Stephanie are so creative and talented and are amazing to work with. I looked forward to every appointment I had with them! Not only are they amazing at flowers and decor, but they are amazingly organized and flexible! Rachel A. Clingen wedding and Event Design is defiantly the best wedding design company there is. If you want your wedding to be something out of a magazine, choose Rachel :)
I had an amazing experience working with Rachel Clingen Wedding and Event Design. I was a big fan of her work for a long time and she didn't disappoint! In person, Rachel, Jessie, and Stephanie were such a joy to work with - very friendly, sincere, professional, punctual, and full of great ideas. She has such vast experience and was very familiar with my venue - this helped a lot as my venue had a lot of restrictions for candles, decor, etc. I gave them a cultural lamp to decorate which they hadn't encountered before and they still managed to decorate it perfectly. They were so patient, accommodating and flexible with last minute requests - even the day before the wedding! My reception was absolutely breathtaking thanks to her - she completely exceeded my expectations to the moon! I gave her very little direction as I trusted her judgement and she totally captured everything I had envisioned for the day. I can't believe she transformed the room so fast. Everyone was amazed by the flowers and decor, the room smelled so amazingly fresh walking in. She made everything a fairy tale dream! I can't thank her and her team enough!
I knew long before I met Rachel that I wanted to work with her. I had been following her on Instagram for months and her work blew me away every time. When I met with her at our first meeting, it solidified that for me. She was so incredibly helpful and had such amazing ideas. I know the amount of weddings she handles (many with a larger budget than mine) however for every meeting I attended, I felt like I was the most important client she had. Right from the first meeting Rachel instantly understood my ideas and what I liked and took them all to the next level. Meeting with her was always so exciting. Because I felt that Rachel understood my vision so well, I left my head table as a surprise. When I walked into the hall for the first time I was mesmerized. It was more than I could have ever imagined. I can honestly say it was the most beautifully decorated wedding I had ever seen. It has been almost a month since my big day, and I still get so many compliments from people about the decor. Someone just asked me the other day "how did you even think of that!? It was like an art exhibit". That's all Rachel!!! If you want to feel like you're in a dream for a night, then I HIGHLY recommend Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design!!!!!!
I'm sure if you following this company on Pinterest or Instagram you can see how beautiful their work is. We walked in with a budget and they were extremely helpful on how to make that work for us. Our budget wasn't small, but it was not a $10,000 + for decor and flowers. I fell in love with one of the weddings Rachel did in Muskoka with the gazebo. I wanted to use this company soooo bad, but I was truly afraid that with our budget we wouldn't be important enough, as I had seen some of their expensive weddings. From the moment we walked in and met her team we felt amazing. They treated us like everyone else.
During the creative meetings we were soo impressed with the options, things we loved but would never have thought about. This is one amazing company that truly deserves all the praise they get. They are extremely good at what they do, and you don't even need to worry. I don't think they could honestly do a bad job. I highly recommend this company for flowers and decor no matter what the occasion.
WOW... where do I even begin? To say that Rachel and her team are AMAZING and the BEST would just be an understatement!!! My very first meeting with Rachel, she welcomed myself and my mother with her huge smile and open arms. She listened to all of my thought and visions, and together we stormed up the most beautiful ideas to create my dream wedding. A couple weeks before the wedding we had out last meeting where she presented me a mock up of our centre pieces... I literally was BLOWN away!!! honestly it was more beautiful than I ever Imagined. So fast forward to the day of the wedding...Rachel and her team were punctual, and extremely diligent. From our ceremony to our reception they had me blown away once again. I knew Rachel was going to make our day so beautiful, but I can't even believe it was as beautiful as it was. From the bouquets, flower crowns, center pieces, and all the stuff in between, Rachel had everyone in awe. If you are looking to have someone create EXACTLY your own personal vision and you need someone TRUST WORTHY...you don't need to look anywhere else, nor do you want to. Rachel and her team are perfection. I truly believe Rachel's passion and love for what she does, comes out in everything she does. She is a perfectionist and is there to make YOU happy, and won't settle for anything less. THANK you again Rachel for creating and making our wedding most beautiful than we ever dreamed!!!! xoxo Megan Bailey
When I started to plan our wedding, I had a specific look and feel in mind. Jessy knew exactly what I was looking for! She made planning extremely easy, and as an out of town bride, was extremely accommodating to me. With just a few meetings, we'd figured out exactly what would be needed to achieve our dream wedding look. Stephanie was very helpful and organized as we determined the final touches. On the day of the wedding, everything looked spectacular. It wa even better than I could have imagined. It rained on out wedding day and the team was willing and ready to make adjustments for us, all with a smile on their faces. I couldn't say enough good things about Jessy, Stephanie, Rachel and the team. I would completely recommend them!!
When I first started planning our wedding, one of the first things we did was book an appointment with Rachel. I had seen her work both online and in print and loved her style of decor! We had an outdoor ceremony and our reception took place under a tent, so we knew we were in good hands with Rachel & her team. I really wanted my wedding to be elegant & romantic, with soft touches and when meeting with Rachel, she immediately understood my vision and ideas, her enthusiasm was contagious, and you could really tell that she is passionate about what she does! We hired Rachel & team for full decor & floral, and they executed my vision for our wedding day beyond my wildest dreams! Not only were they such a pleasure to work with, but they are truly amazing at what they do. I have received so many compliments on my decor & floral, still to this day 4 months later! Rachel really made my wedding day a dream come true! I can't say enough about Rachel & her team, I am forever thankful that I had an opportunity to work with her!
My husband and I got married on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at the Palais Royale and we were so lucky and fortunate to have Rachel Clingen and Jessy help us create the wedding of our dreams. To simply put it Rachel and Jessy truly create a fairy tale wedding for us. The flowers and décor they provided were outstanding and beautiful. All of our guests raved about the flowers and how they were the nicest flower arrangements and bouquets they had ever seen. This was all thanks to Jessy and Rachel. We felt completely comfortable with letting them take the reins for the décor and design on our big day. We gave them some color ideas to keep in mind and they worked their magic.
They truly created the wedding of our dreams! It was such a pleasure to work with Rachel, Jessy and their team. We are so blessed to have met them and have them part of the most important day of our lives. We cannot thank Rachel and Jessy enough for all of their wonderful work. Our friends and family are still raving about the flowers.
We highly recommend Rachel Clingen for all wedding décor needs. She is so wonderful to work with! She is very accommodating and ready to work within your budget which is great and I have highly recommended her to all of my friends getting married. Another thing about Rachel and Jessy that we LOVED was that they actual care about their clients and helping them create a wedding they will love. It was so nice as a Bride to know our wedding decorator cared and it put me at ease to not to have to worry at all as I felt so confident and truly comfortable with whatever Rachel and Jessy had planned.
I could honestly rave for hours about how amazing they were to work with and what an outstanding job they did! If you are looking for wedding décor there is really no need to look further than Rachel Clingen! A BIG THANK YOU again for all of your spectacular work!

My husband and I got married at the Four Seasons in Toronto on April 25th, 2015. Rachel was referred by my husbands brother and wife, who worked with her the previous year. For us, Rachel was tried and true. We saw her work and immediately knew we needed her on our team. To say that Rachel gave us the wedding of our dreams is a HUGE understatement! I will never forget sneaking into the Aria ballroom during setup the day of our wedding, and being completely overcome with emotion. Our design meetings were always thorough and Rachel is SO passionate and invested in her clients - but what I saw that day blew me away. Rachel's attention to detail, commitment, guidance and patience made for a truly memorable experience. The Four Seasons was transformed into a fairytale! Our guests (including my husband and I) could not believe what we were experiencing! A month later, the compliments are still coming in - our guests are still telling us it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended!!
To top off her creativity and skill, Rachel and her husband Dave are 2 of the most amazing people I have ever met. By the end of our design process, I felt like I was working with two friends. They are funny, down to earth, and incredibly kind. I would recommend Rachel to anyone - it'll be the best decision you'll ever make!
Rachel and Dave - Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for the most spectacular wedding we have ever seen in our lives. You exceeded our expectations and turned our dreams into reality. We are truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with you. Words simply aren't enough - you are the salt of the earth!
All our love,
Iva & Chris
Rachel and Jessy were absolutely fabulous to work with. Their creativity and talents exceeded what I could imagine. When I walked into the ballroom at Palais Royale it literally took my breath away! Absolutely stunning flowers and glittering candles everywhere! As the Mother of the Bride I am so thrilled and grateful from the bottom of my heart to them for making my daughter's dream wedding come true! I have already received phone calls and emails from guests asking for the "name of the amazing decorator/florist".
My husband and I met with Rachel after she had been suggested by our cake vendor. Rachel A. Clingen Wedding and Event Design was extremely professional and creative. I had worked mainly with Rachel and Jess - both of which were very knowledgeable and patient (I wanted guidance and specific visuals to help me make decisions and both Rachel and Jess worked with me until I felt comfortable).
Rachel completed all of the decorations and flowers at my wedding - going from petals down the aisle and my bouquet (which had a very difficult flower to work with - Gardenias) to the draping, lighting, head table and receiving line tables! I had specific looks that I wanted to avoid and Jess and Rachel were able to pick up on this. Jess and Rachel were able to help us select centerpieces that we liked as well as went over details such as candles to go on the head table - which looked gorgeous! Jess and Rachel were able to remove stress from me when the little wedding conflicts arose, such as the need for a fake purple calla lily 2 days before the wedding to match the real one's the rest of the groomsmen wore!
Their staff stayed on location on the day of the wedding to ensure the decorations stayed in place during the ceremony and were transferred properly to our main hall following.
Thank you very much Jess and Rachel!

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!!
We were blessed to find Jessy at Rachel A. Clingen through a reference from our sister-in-law. The atmosphere we wished for was elegant, peaceful and romantic. Our wishes were, by all means, exceeded. Our family and friends were taken aback by how beautiful and welcoming the overall decor for our morning ceremony was and by the romance of our evening celebrations. Jessy and her team were super accomodating and flexible in meeting our needs. Each request was met with an honest and straight-forward approach, all the while keeping our budget and capabilities in mind. We felt Jessy and her team maximized their creative skills to bring our vision to life. We have ended up with a beautiful, glowing memory of our special day, and we plan to carry that forward into our new lives. Thank you for all that you did to make our day complete, both Jessy and Rachel. You have a very special place in our hearts as we look back on our wedding.
Lots of Love
