We wanted to do a destination Indian wedding, and chose Portland, Oregon. My MIL happened to find Katherine- and THANKFULLY she did. Every other florist in the world seems MEH to Katherine. She is basically a unicorn disguised as a human. Talked to her on the phone, told her what I needed exactly for my Indian wedding. She had never done an Indian wedding independently prior, but there was something instinctively we trusted about her. We hired her, she revised our list of floral needs like a million times with love, and trust me, I emailed and called her A LOT. She even did a mini sample floral setup for us where we live- which is a different STATE (she happened to be there!). Who does that? Who goes that extra mile when they are on vacation? AMAZING. Weekend of my wedding- I mean, I am not an easy person to blow away- but I was so thrilled at how she took my vision to the next level. She went ABOVE and beyond for my floral needs- I was stunned. Every single person there (even the hard-to please guests, which every wedding has! :) were so taken with Katherine and BLUE's floral creativity and excellence. The colors, the quality, the designs, the creativity, the efficiency, the uniqueness, the beauty of it all. 4/5 of my wedding events (Indian wedding are wild!) had floral, and with each one- Katherine's work got better, bigger, and more creative. She created so many custom pieces for our wedding- some of which were for the first time- and they were each SO fantastic and beautiful. Katherine- we dont know how to thank you and your team. We were so excited about how it all looked and felt, and you had the LARGEST piece of that for sure. Everything you touched looked better. I don't even know how other florists in Portland are going to stay in business after BLUE becomes rich and famous (please remember and love us though ha! :).Super professional, kind, talented, creative, and overall THE best. EVERYONE should hire her! Love, Benji/SoniaSent on 07/30/2018

Amazing wedding Artist
Katherine's vision, design, and complete understanding of her clients dream is truly a gift. She genuinely captured what was most important to my Nephews and created a magical dream come true wedding for them. She is not only the most talented floral artist, but also one of the kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with. Anyone would be incredibly lucky to have her make their dream a reality and I am so grateful that she created a Chuppah/Mandap, table arrangements, garlands, rose petal path, tent lighting, (and the list goes on) wedding for my NephewsSent on 08/03/2019

One of my favorite aspects of our wedding--and one that we got the most comments on--was the floral.Sent on 08/05/2019
Katherine at BLUE is visionary and she was my favorite vendor to work with!
Katherine encouraged us to think big when it came to floral (despite neither of us really being floral people!). She asked about what we liked and didn't like between flowers and colors. In understanding the venue and layout, she imagined what the floral design could be. To see it come to life...I was speechless. There was so much thought and detail put into all of it.
She is incredible!
