Like working with a friend!
Diana is simply wonderful! If you are looking for a personalized experience with someone who cares about you, your family and your vision, then you can't go wrong with Black Calla Events. Diana brings her years of experience at a large flower company to her own company, which allows her to dedicate her time and attention to your big day. We were in the finishing stages of wedding planning when the world changed due to Covid-19. We postponed our Spring 2020 wedding to September of 2020 and then finally to next year. Diana was so supportive and flexible when it came to helping us work out a new date and make new plans. Prior to our plans changing Diana was right there with us at our venue going through our day, helping us plan for set up and offering her creative ideas to make the most of our space! I am excited to now start planning a fall themed wedding with her for next year.Sent on 09/08/2020

Look no further!
Diana with Black Calla Events is amazing and such a talent in the florals & decor industry. My husband and I had to completely shift gears with our wedding planning due to COVID, which meant we canceled our original destination wedding and began planning an entirely different one in Washington, DC. The events/wedding coordinator at our venue had wonderful things to say about Black Calla Events and recommended I reach out to Diana because the two have worked together in the past; so I did. Diana was immediately responsive and remained so throughout our time working together. She responded to every email/text immediately and answered every question or concern I had.
Because I had already planned out florals for a tropical destination wedding, I had a little difficulty reframing my thinking about what our florals/decor should look like given we were now having a true fall wedding in the city (October 17, 2020). But Diana was extremely patient and helpful as I bounced ideas around, changed my mind here and there, and of course, tried to stay within budget. We communicated regularly via emails, text messages, and phone calls to plan out my vision, right down to the exact greenery and florals I wanted in my bouquet. I appreciated that she was respectful of our wishes to keep costs as low as possible without losing any of the integrity. I never felt pressured to choose a certain bouquet style or go with more expensive decor--she allowed me to guide her while she used her professional eye to refine my vision.
In terms of value, I think we got our full money's worth here. Florals are likely going to be one of the most expensive parts of your wedding and with that comes understanding the reality that fresh flowers are not cheap...and fresh flowers that aren't in season are also not cheap. So while we may have gone a little over budget with florals it was all more than worth it in the end!
Due to COVID (and also because I love surprises), I never saw exactly what my bouquet, hair piece (yep, she designed and created a beautiful floral headpiece that complimented my bouquet so perfectly!), corsages, boutonnières, decor, etc looked like. But when they were delivered to my suite on Wedding Day...I was absolutely blown away by how everything came together and looked 100x better than I ever imagined! I've never seen a bouquet like the one Diana created for me so that made my day even more special. I shared with Diana that I loved the rustic yet elegant look and that I really only had 2 requests for what my bouquet included: a king protea flower and pampas grass. She delivered exactly what I asked for + more!
Diana and I discussed delivery times about 2 weeks prior to Wedding Day and everything was delivered at exactly the time we agreed upon. I am so happy with my decision to work with Diana & Black Calla Events--she's such a sweet person and a true talent. If you're looking for a florist, you literally need not look any further. Thank you Diana & Black Calla Events for being such a special part of the most beautiful day of our lives!

Helped this #Coronabride bring my vision to real life!
From beginning to finish, Diana and her team delivered EXCELLENT customer service! Out of all of the vendors I considered, Diana stuck closest to my budget without compromising my creative vision and gave me excellent feedback on what would look best with my decor and venues. She was always very responsive via text and was punctual for all of our appointments. On top of that, my guests raved about how gorgeous my centerpieces were to the point where several of them asked to take them home, haha. Thank you Black Calla Events to helping my dream microwedding come to life during this ridiculous time in all of our lives. The service doesn't get any better than this!Sent on 12/01/2020
