Gorgeous and Classic
Lake Forest Flowers made my daughters micro wedding look like a spectacular and classy event. My daughters bouquet was beautiful and so were the centerpieces. These centerpieces were used to frame the arch and alter pieces at Deerpath Inn. They are so talented, I highly recommend them!Sent on 10/14/2020
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Thank you so much for your comments. We were delighted to design the flowers and it was a match made in heaven with the venue and the flowers :)

Wonderful Experience with Eileen
Eileen was so helpful in making our vision a reality! We had multiple meetings with her and she was very responsive in communication. We didn’t know what we wanted at first, but Eileen guided us and worked within our budget. The flower arrangements were amazing quality and my bouquet was just as I dreamed it would be. On the day of, she cheerily popped in to say hello and drop off the bouquets and then got to work and needed little direction. Everything was set up perfectly and she was a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much!Sent on 10/09/2020
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Dear Danielle, Thank you so much for your review! It was my pleasure to create the beautiful floral designs for you! Not even the covid pandemic could stop your wedding! Best wishes to you and Nathaniel. Florally yours, Eileen

I am so incredibly happy with our decision to go with Lake Forest Flowers for our wedding in August. Eileen was so nice and understanding every step of the way. She made great recommendations and was able to accommodate all of my requests. She was happy to work with us to stay in our budget. I highly recommend working with them for any occasion. She made the cutest eucalyptus wreath for our flower dog. And the overall quality of all of the flowers was great. I received so many compliments from guests on the flowers.Sent on 10/05/2020
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Dear Lindsey, Thank you so much for sharing your experience in working with us! We were thrilled it was a perfect day for your outdoor ceremony and bringing your floral vision to life. We appreciate your kind words and hope to celebrate your Anniversaries for years to come! Best and blossoms, Eileen

Beautiful Bridal Bouquet
I needed a bridal bouquet for our backyard wedding during COVID. Eileen at Lake Forest Flowers was able to provide be a beautiful bouquet at a good price. We had a quick phone call about what I was looking for and she created the perfect bouquet. Would definitely recommend!Sent on 09/26/2020

Eileen is fantastic!
Holy cow, Eileen and everyone at Lake Forest Flowers was just phenomenal for our wedding day. She was able to take my less-than-traditional vision and craft a look that was beautiful and well within our budget. I LOVED my bouquet, and am so thankful we chose her as a vendor. You will not go wrong with them!Sent on 01/14/2020

Eileen was such a joy to work with throughout the entire planning process! From our first meeting to the day of, I couldn’t have asked for a better florist to work with. Her and her team put together a wedding vision I didn’t even know I wanted. Coming in to the whole process, I had no idea what flowers, what style, or what theme I was even visioning. Eileen was so patient with me and guided me through it all, asking the right questions and making me consider things I never would have even thought of. I trusted her entirely and I have no regrets! She even went out of her way to work with my church and my event coordinator at my hotel reception without putting me in the middle to have to worry about it. It was hard to find a florist that would deliver and set up in Waukegan and in Glenview so the fact that they were able to do that for me was a huge plus. She made that whole year as stress-free as possible. By the time we finalized everything, I had no doubts that everything would not only look perfect, but go smoothly- and it did! I would definitely recommend Eileen and her team at Lake Forest Flowers to anyone without any hesitation!Sent on 12/12/2019
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Dear Kim, Thank you so much for your kind words and sharing your experience in working with us! You were a joy to work with and it was our pleasure to create beautiful florals for your wedding! All our best wishes to you! Eileen

Eileen and her team were amazing to work with. Eileen really listened to what the vision was and executed with both precision and love. The flowers at our daughter's wedding were gorgeous. The trellis was done to perfection, the brides bouquet was amazing and the boutonnieres with the succulents were the best I have ever seen. Thank you Eileen and Lake Forest Flowers for a worry-free beautiful day!Sent on 07/02/2019
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Thank you so much for sharing your experince! We loved bringing your vision to reality. The spa and oasis color scheme was so unique. Best wishes to the bride and groom!
Rebecca · Married on 11/10/2018
My husband and I recently got married in November, 2018. Like any engaged couple, we had done plenty of research for all of our vendors. When I came across Lake Forest Flowers I just simply had a really good feeling about it. I liked the fact it was a local and friendly company that seemed to truly care about their clients. When we met Eileen we immediately KNEW this was the place for us. Eileen was so attentive, enthusiastic, and genuinely happy for us to get married. I had a vision for our wedding flowers but wasn't exactly sure how to express everything. Eileen knew exactly what to ask and guided us in the perfect direction. I trusted her ENTIRELY and I knew that this was one vendor I absolutely did not have to worry about for the wedding - which is a really great feeling. I felt confident everything would be perfect and without any surprise, it was! Eileen was extremely easy to communicate with throughout the planning process as well. She was easy to get ahold of and always followed up right away with any questions or concerns. She worked with us to facilitate our wishes in every aspect. My bridal bouquet was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!! My bridesmaids were so happy with their bouquets. The centerpieces for our wedding tables were exactly what we envisioned. And Eileen created the most beautiful wedding arch that we repurposed for the ceremony and reception. She is a true professional in every way but more than that, she was a caring and an entrusted friend on our wedding journey. To have Lake Forest Flowers apart of our wedding planning process and our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made. I could not say enough and I highly recommend them to anyone!Sent on 01/02/2019
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Dear Rebecca, I just adore the two of you and loved working with you! Everything turned out beautifully and I hope to have the opportunity to work with you in the future. All the best to you and Michael in this new year as a married couple! Warmly, Eileen
Blaine · Married on 08/25/2018
I just used Lake Forest Flowers for my wedding day, and they are AMAZING! Eileen is incredibly responsive, professional, smart and talented. She was by far my favorite vendor that I worked with. Her attention to detail, hard work and good taste was such a blessing to have for my wedding! She even came to the venue even though she was around 9 months pregnant to make sure everything was executed flawlessly, which it was!!!! My bouquets were absolutely gorgeous, as were the boutonnieres, and my center pieces and candle arrangements were gorgeous. I wouldn't have changed a thing. She completely got my vision and understood how to add value to my venue. One of my absolute favorite pieces was the garland for the head table. Absolutely incredible! I am so glad I worked with this florist for my wedding day! It's great because they are a boutique shop, so they are able to concentrate on you and knock it out of the park!Sent on 09/09/2018
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Oh My Goodness, these photos are beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing them and your experience in working with us. We too loved the floral designs and were so honored to be a part of your day!
Maggie · Married on 07/06/2018
I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Eileen! She was the most positive, organized, and passionate vendor that I had the pleasure of working with. She was prompt with responding to questions and she really cared about making my visions come true! She also offered her advice on other wedding details, which I really appreciated. I left every meeting feeling even more excited about my wedding day. Without a doubt I would book LF Flowers- they are truly the best because they are so knowledgeable and passionate about what they do!Sent on 07/25/2018
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Dear Maggie, Thank you so very much for your kind words. You were a dream to work with and I loved creating the beautiful florals for your wedding day! Florally yours, Eileen

Kara · Married on 06/29/2018
We had the absolute best experience with Eileen! We had a horrible experience with another florist and I went to Eileen just 2 months before our wedding! The day I arrived at the shop for our meeting, it just so happened that she had almost the exact same arrangements made for a wedding that we had been looking for. She was so accommodating and friendly throughout the whole process! We will absolutely be using Lake Forest Flowers in the future and will recommend to anyone we know needing a florist! Thank you Eileen and the Lake Forest Team!Sent on 07/26/2018
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Such beautiful brides! It was such a pleasure working with you and was honored you loved my designs! Best wishes to you both and hope to see you in the flowers shop again soon :)

We are not well versed in flowers and had a limited budget. Eileen and her team listened to what we wanted and was able to translate our rather unformed thoughts into beautiful flowers, within the budget, for our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception..Sent on 07/21/2018

Lake Forest Flowers did the flowers for my wedding. They were absolutely amazing. Eileen was wonderful to work with. She took some of my ideas and ran with them to create a beautiful bouquet. I was so pleased and they lasted for a while after the wedding. She was very creative and was able to work within my budget. I would work with them again in a heartbeat!Sent on 11/19/2017

Katie · Married on 10/22/2016
Eileen and Lake Forest Flowers did an incredible job creating the floral theme and setting it all up for my wedding at the Armour House. I met with Eileen a year in advance, and we remained in contact as the months went by to create a proposal we were all excited about. She did not get frustrated with me when my ideas and opinions kept changing, and I greatly appreciated that! She also kept the proposals within our budget, and did not pressure us to increase it in any way.Sent on 11/11/2016
The florals at my wedding were to die for. She took every one of my suggestions into consideration, and made it all flow together so perfectly. Our wedding guests complimented the arrangements and bouquets which shows it did not go unnoticed!
I would definitely recommend Eileen and Lake Forest Flowers to anyone in my network.
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Katie, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with Lake Forest Flowers and me. Designing your wedding flowers was a joy and I am thrilled with how everything came to together as well! Best wishes, Eileen
Susie · Married on 08/20/2016
As someone who knows close to nothing about flowers, but still blissfully loves them and wanted to have gorgeous flowers for her wedding, I am so lucky that my mother in law recommended I work with Eileen at Lake Forest Flowers!Sent on 09/14/2016
A quick look at their website, Facebook page, Instagram, or even the page here will show you what I can’t in words—Eileen’s arrangements are thoughtful, beautiful, unique, and timeless! What I can tell you beyond the photos is that Eileen really cares about the vision you have for your wedding. She was patient and helpful during our in-person floral meeting and able to imagine the things I had in mind despite my not knowing the words for anything. She also kept my husband’s preferences in mind despite his being a typical guy just trying to avoid any frou-frouness. :-P
Budget was an important point for us and Eileen made every cost very clear in her floral proposal, adjusting and readjusting as we decided against certain points while adding others later. She allowed additional flexibility with my mother in law and her friend kindly opting to deliver and set up flowers on the actual wedding day.
Our desired look in the end was very simple with white and soft pink flowers and lots of greenery. We had lantern centerpieces for our tables with greenery and flowers instead of large floral arrangements. Everything was beautiful and unified across her every creation. We also had baby’s breath for my hair and bridesmaids’ hair which everyone loved. Also, I requested to have eucalyptus throughout everything, which she truly honored, and I think this added a wonderful soft fragrance to the entire day! Also, I was able to have peonies in my bouquet which are my FAVORITE but not at all in season!
In the end, Eileen made a potentially stressful part of wedding planning SO easy and rewarding. She is such a talented and kind florist who will truly help to make your wedding as beautiful as you could dream. We are so lucky to have worked with her!
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Susie, I can't thank you enough for sharing your kinds words! I really and truly appreciate them. The photos that I have seen are stunning - you are beautiful! I was so honored to create the bouquet you carried and be able to include the peonies :) Please share more photos as they become available. Thanks again - Eileen

Eileen at Lake Forest Flowers was amazing!!!! She is very professional, helpful, creative, and sweet. She came up with gorgeous designs for my rehearsal dinner and wedding. I really appreciated how respectful she was of my budget - not pushy at all. She is top notch and I would recommend Lake Forest Flowers to anyone! Wish I lived closer so I could come by the shop more often.Sent on 08/04/2016
Lake Forest Flowers's reply:Annie, You are such a gorgeous bride! I will never forget the moment adding the feather in your bouquet. Thank you for your kind words. Congratulations and best wishes to you! Eileen

Eileen from Lake Forest Flowers was a dream to work with. Finding a florist was one of the more stressful parts of planning. The three florists we consulted with before LFF were non responsive and unprofessional. The second we walked into LFF I knew we were in the right place. Eileen worked with and respected our budget. She was a breath of fresh air. The flowers were perfect. My bouquet was everything I ever dreamed of and more. Eileen and her team did an amazing job. They were professional, prompt, and courteous. It was so comforting working with Lake Forest Flowers. I highly recommend them for your wedding or any other special event.Sent on 06/13/2016

Lake forest flowers truly delivered in every single one of these categories. Eileen did the flowers for my wedding at the Armour House in May of 2016. Immediately after meeting Eileen, we knew there was no need to look any further for a wedding florist. She was so friendly and professional and assured us that she could work within our style and budget. I showed her my Pinterest board and she literally brought it to life! Our style was a bit less traditional- going for a softer more natural feel with our flowers - and Elileen immediately was on the same page with us.Sent on 06/21/2016
As the wedding approached, Eileen was always willing to make adjustments, as there were a couple of last minute changes to our order. She was so flexible and easy to work with. I never once stressed about the flowers for my wedding.
Lake forest flowers delivered beautiful bouquets, boutonnières, center pieces and other decorative arrangements. I would definitely recommend Lake Forest Flowers to ANYONE who wants beautiful flowers that reflect the bride and groom's personal style!
