Finch & Thistle is a full-service event design and planning studio based in Seattle, WA. As a full-service event design company, we provide a personally tailored service which involves much more than dropping off bouquets at the venue. We work with you to design every small detail of your event and we make sure everything is set up and styled before we leave.
Our work has been featured in Bride's Magazine, Design*Sponge, Style Me Pretty, Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom, Wedding Chicks, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Once Wed and Green Wedding Shoes among others.
To ensure an unparalleled attention to detail, we book a limited number of events during the busy summer months. While the majority of our events take place in Washington state, we love to travel and would be thrilled to work with you on the design of your destination wedding. Please call early to confirm we are available on your date!

Rachel was the florist for my wedding ceremony and reception at Woodmark Hotel. We did a lot of research of florists design (about 10 to 15 from WeddingWire and The Knot and reviewed the portfolio from each one). Rachel was the only one that we found suitable for our tastes (with an organic and elegant design). The price is considerably higher (about 2 times more) than the other florists that we talked to but wedding is once in a life time event (and it was worth it in retrospect!)Sent on 08/26/2018
Rachel is extremely thoughtful and organized from the beginning to the end. It was simple to work with Rachel because she has good tastes and we pretty much had a lot of confidence to let her run with her designs. We filled out a questionnaire about our wedding. Rachel designed the flowers and tables linens and gave us lots of good ideas to choose from.
We would recommend Rachel for those who would like a top class florist in Seattle.

We used Rachel Bowes of Finch and Thistle Event Design for our daughter’s wedding. She was our wedding coordinator as well as our wedding designer responsible for flowers and the overall theme. Rachel was exceptional in every way! The décor was beautifully done and set the tone of understated elegance my daughter had requested. Most important to us was her expertise in planning and execution of our entire wedding. Rachel’s calm professionalism, knowledge and contact with vendors, plus her ability to brainstorm solutions to unexpected problems that arose, attention to detail and upbeat attitude was exemplary. We recommend her highly!!Sent on 07/16/2016

As someone who has experience working as a wedding florist, I know quality and value when I see it, and Finch & Thistle is all that and more. I was a bridesmaid in a lovely but rather demanding wedding, and she handled every curve thrown at her with fantastic customer service and poise. The flowers were breath-taking and completely elevated the entire event. I highly recommend Finch & Thistle to any and all, because you'll be glad you worked with her!Sent on 07/16/2014
Rachel and her team are amazing. If you are in the Seattle area and want something totally unique, current and beautiful, she's your gal!!!
Rachel from Finch & Thistle is absolutely amazing! Her vision and talent is unmatched and her weddings are gorgeous. As a photographer I put a lot of emphasis on the overall feel of a wedding. Definitely consider Rachel for her creativity and professionalism...you won't be disappointed!
