LeAnn did the flowers for my wedding and the only way to describe her work was absolute perfection! She took our vision and turned it into the most beautiful reality! We received endless compliments on our flowers and the mood that LeAnn and her team created in both our ceremony and reception spaces was unbelievable. LeAnn knew what we wanted from the get-go, was very responsive and knowledgable and was just a joy to work with. She gave us great advice and gives the best hugs! I highly recommend Whimsical and am so grateful she was a part of our day :)
I cannot say enough about what a wonderful job Leann and her staff did in providing florals for the wedding! The bride and groom are in the USMC stationed in Okinawa Japan, so planning was challenging! Leann met with me and also was able to meet with my daughter a world away via FaceTime to get the initial planning done. However over the following months Leann continued to communicate with us of ideas for our event. She created a Pinterest Board specifically for us to use to provide her with ideas. The end result was absolutely beautiful. We received so many comments from all of our guests on the beautiful and unusual florals.
Leann was also our Day of Coordinator, mainly for the reception. She also worked closely with all vendors to ensure everything went smoothly and was able to work WITH them allowing each one to do their thing, but ensuring everything came together well. I cannot say enough how much I have appreciated her help. As a mother of the bride planning my first daughter's wedding with the bride so far away, I needed all the help I could get!
Leann at Whimsical Floral Design was a pleasure to work with. I really did not have a great idea of what kinds of flowers I wanted. I couldn't even name five flowers at all if I tried to come up with them. Leanne worked with me and my limited knowledge to propose options that were exactly what I wanted. She found pictures on pinterest and sent me various images to confirm she was on the right track for my vision, and she was. In addition, I was living in Hong Kong, and so was in opposite time zones. Despite taking care of her little children, she got on the phone with me late at night her time for calls. She never rushed me off the phone and she took the time to really understand what I was looking for. After our very first call, before even booking her, I noticed she had already started a pinterest page specifically with my name on it. She was planning and brainstorming before I had even confirmed.
In the end, the flowers and centerpieces turned out stunning. At one point during our photos, my sister-in-law brought the bouquets down and I stopped and almost screamed. I don't know if I have ever seen something in real life that actually looks like a filtered Instagram photo. #nofilter.
My bouquet was truly the most beautiful bouquet I have ever seen. It was absolutely perfect, everything I would have dreamt of for my wedding. I had several people remark on how beautiful the centerpieces and flowers were.
I would highly recommend using Whimsical Floral Design to any bride.
I searched high and low for a florist in the surrounding Charlottesville area that didn't charge buku bucks (since I was on a budget) and shared my sense of style. I wanted something very organic with a garden feel. I was so excited when I found Leann, and she ended up being a joy to work with throughout the entire process. Her on-site consultation was also a huge help, since she could see the venue and suggest ideas that I hadn't even considered. She was always coming up with great ideas, like picking fresh magnolias out of our yard and incorporating them into my bouquet and the mantle arrangement. My wedding was also unique, in that I had living centerpieces instead of traditional floral arrangements. Leann came through even though there were many last minute challenges. I would highly recommend Leann, she is amazingly talented and creative.
Leann was great to work with. She shared all of her great ideas and really tried to work with me to get as much out of my budget as we could.
Leann was so wonderful to work with! We chatted a lot over the phone, through email, and meetings. We worked a lot over Pinterest which was a wonderful way to explore the different looks and made it easy to show what I liked and disliked. She completely got my vision. I was very new to the flower world and Leann made me feel very comfortable. She had wonderful and unique suggestions. Guests repeatedly complimented our bouquets and centerpieces saying they had never seen anything like them!
Wow. From start to finish. Where do I begin. I knew after the first phone call that I was going to hire this girl to do my flowers. She was so easy going and full of information. She asked questions that I hadn't even thought about. My wedding was amazing!! And not just because I planned it but the flowers were beautiful too. We went back and forth through emails for months before the wedding since I live in Phoenix. She helped me realize what I actually wanted instead of what I thought I should have if that makes sense. My husband and I would definitely hire her again if we ever do a vow renewal in the future. Oh and she was also helpful in recommending a baker and wedding planner. A+ Leann rocks!
I got in touch with Leann after receiving very expensive quotes from other vendors in the area. I really wanted garden roses and muted pastel shades. I was skeptical at first because her quote was so much less than what other florists were wanting to charge me, but the flowers were absolutely breathtaking. I cried tears of joy when I saw my bouquet. She had taken the time to really listen to me and get to know my style. I told her I wanted garden roses and that my colors were light yellow, peachy light pink and creams. My theme was "english garden." Other than that, I let her choose how to incorporate it. Needless to say, I was thrilled. We ordered tall centerpieces (which I didn't think I could afford) and they were filled with garden roses, peonies and different types of (very pretty) greenery. My dad gave her two large urns for the "altar" outdoors and she made me two large arrangements out of those last minute.
She also made my flower girl basket, ring pillow, guestbook, garters in the theme of my wedding. I highly recommend her - she was always in contact by email and it was easy to setup phone meetings when I needed.
Ann Marie, you were so awesome to work with. I am very happy to hear that you received exactly what you envisioned for your wedding. It was my pleasure! I loved your theme and colors and it was a lot of fun working on your flowers.
I tried to do my flowers for my wedding with my bridesmaids and we ordered from fiftyflowers. we planned to do them Friday. I found out im no green thumb at all and my bridesmaids were worse. My mom found Leanne on google after calling 3 shops who wouldnt use my flowers i already paid for. She asked me some questions over the phone about what my flowers were. My mom met her at the walmart to take her the flowers and my ribbons. I was so scared about my flowers and sat morning she called me say that she finished all my flowers last night and would take them to my church and put them on the tables for me. I thought it was good of her to tell me before my wedding it was all good. She said she was gonna call fri night but they didn't finish until midnight. Anyways - she made them all so pretty. I was scared I would not find anyone to use my flowers my mom already got and there was no way i could pay for flowers. She only charged my mom for the work and delivery.
I tookoff half point because she asked for pictures of me an my bouquet and of the table flowersand she should pay me or do as discount off my flowers if she wants to use them on her site, but my flowers turned out really good though and i got lots of complements
I love Whimsical Floral! Leann and her team made my wedding an event to remember. I can still smell the gardenia and freesia in my bouquet. Her work is top notch and you can tell she knows what she is doing. She made a gardenia to put in my hair with the extra gardenia she had. I couldn't be happier with everything. The manzanita trees were incredible - and they were rentals so I was able to afford them. She also had vintage glassware rentals that were scattered around the base of the tree with single flowers in them. My guests were so impressed with everything. I definitely will use her again in the future if I ever need flowers again.
Leann was wonderful! She worked with me tirelessly by email to get my flowers exactly right (and she even got me peonies for a reasonable price!). She even did a trial arrangement and emailed me the pictures. She was able to do my flowers AND deliver them to Maryland for much less money than other florists quoted me, and the result was absolutely beautiful. She also helped me with many other things, like flower petal cones for a petal toss, flower girl basket, ring bearer pillow, and the guestbook. I highly recommend her!
This wedding was one of my absolute favorites - the bride was on a budget but still had big dreams and she was an absolute sweetheart. It was a stunning beach side wedding filled with peonies and garden roses. We even threw together a free last minute archway arrangement with the leftover greenery and flowers that were on the truck.
ok so I thought I had a really good florist to do my wedding, well I didn't. It was a nightmare. I was Not happy the way things were going, so I am fishing on the internet and come across Whimsical Floral Design , I set up an appointment to talk to Leann. She was a delight to talk to. Listened to all my ideas and wants, suggested a few different ideas, which I am glad she did, because she opened up my eyes ,in other words she knew what I wanted. She saved the day,saved me money and I felt very comfortable. The flowers were BEAUTIFUL!! Leann did an awesome job.
I found the company online and searched around for the best deal. Leanne gave me a great deal and worked with me so much. I was going back and forth with her on the computer for months on what I wanted because I had a look in my mind and wanted it to happen. She was very easy to talk to and contact. I met her in person at the wedding and she was very nice. I was a little disappointing in the amount of flowers. I was supposed to have more people and she brought flowers for that amount but not everyone showed up so it ended up being the perfect amount so I would recommend asking for more. My bouquet and my bridesmaids flowers were fantastic. I spent less and that is what I got but still had a nice look. The centerpieces were not exactly what I had envisioned nor were other aspects. The flowers were not as important to me as other things so I didn't mind as much. If you have any questions or want to see pictures please let me know. Again, the colors were bright and everyone really liked the color scheme of the flowers.
There was a miscommunication between the event planner at the location and myself. The bride paid for 20 table centerpieces (also confirmed with the event planner 2 weeks prior to the wedding) - once we arrived at the wedding location, we found 24 tables. We were also asked to decorate a wedding arch (not in the contract) after the wedding was moved indoors and I did so without payment because I felt the need to try to give her a break since the weather ruined her outdoor wedding. I did bring extra flowers for what was in the contract - the out of contract a la carte items took every stem I had on the truck. I also never sent her a bill for the additional items, so the 3 star value rating is not very fair when all thing are considered.
Leann was a delight to work with. I found her while trying to look for hydrangeas since we were going to do our own ceremony/reception flowers.
The flowers were beautiful on our wedding day! She did exactly what I had envisioned and her prices were unbeatable.
Karissa was a sweetheart. She had originally planned to have her family do the flowers and buy loose flowers from me, but once I gave her a quote for full service, she happily took the burden off her family. She got exactly what she envisioned and it was well within her budget.
Great Vendor. Product shipped on time and was exactly as described. You can trust this one gals.
You were such a pleasure to work with! Thanks for the kind words and congratulations again!
