More beautiful than I ever could have imagined!
If I could rate On Occasions of Atlanta higher than a 5, I would! Carla Duncan took my floral and decor vision and went FAR above and beyond. First of all, Carla worked within our budget and gave us several suggestions of how to save money without sacrificing style, vision, and beauty. I specifically mention this because it is very clear Carla genuinely LOVES what she does and is not in this business just for the money. She is extremely talented and I love that we had the opportunity to meet with her beforehand for what she calls "Play with Flowers" day. In this meeting, she took my written vision and made example floral arrangements and bouquets. I felt so comfortable knowing what to expect from the florals and decor. Of course, this didn't even compare to how stunningly beautiful our reception area looked the day of the wedding. She has a great team of people who helped to make sure that everything ran smoothly and on time. Honestly, I can't say enough great things about On Occasion of Atlanta and Carla. After the wedding I received so many compliments about how gorgeous the tables & bouquets were. I would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a florist for their wedding or any other special event!

On Occasions of Atlanta was so wonderful to work with, and the flowers at our wedding were beautiful. They made the whole process so easy, and Carla Duncan is a fun and warm professional, with such unique and creative ideas. Her pricing was really reasonable, and she donated all the leftover flowers we didn't want to a hospice facility, so they could brighten someone else's day! It's these small touches that put her over the top as a florist you must work with for your next special occasion.

Beautiful design, affordable, easy to work with!
We loved working with Carla at On Occasions of Atlanta for our wedding planning. I delayed the decor planning part of my wedding until the last minute and I met with Carla just two months before the wedding day. She helped keep me calm and really helped me build out a vision from the few preferences I gave her. She also staged all of the decor at the venue a few weeks before the wedding to make sure I was happy with all of the flower and color choices. Thank goodness for that because we ended up making important last minute changes to better suit the lighting and space at the venue. Carla was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and went out of her way to suggest even smaller changes that really made a big difference on the wedding day. And, her rates are very affordable and the quality of all of her products, especially the flowers are the very best. I would recommend Carla at On Occasions of Atlanta for any wedding!

Carla was 1000% amazing!! I was overwhelmed with selecting floral arrangements and was planning a wedding from another state, but Carla was attentive, creative, and did a breathtaking job on our flowers. My bouquet smelled AMAZING with peonies and looked gorgeous as did the rest of our ceremony and reception arrangements. I had communicated a budget and general items I would like to see, and she was able to make all of it happen and more! From the candles on the venue mantles to the tiered arrangements on the dinner tables, we honestly couldn't have fathomed a better outcome. Thank you so much to Carla!!!

Carla is one of the most extraordinary professionals that my husband and I have ever worked with. She not only created the most beautiful floral arrangements for our wedding day but she also served as our day of coordinator. We could not have asked for a more flawless day, and we have Carla and her team to thank. She is not only thorough, detail-oriented, organized, hard-working, and dedicated to her clients but she is also friendly, thoughtful, considerate, and compassionate about her work. Carla's number one goal during our planning process was ensuring that my husband and I were happy with every detail and decision made. She helped us envision our day from the beginning with creative design suggestions catered to our preferences. Carla helped in coordination of our vendors; finalized details through timelines and questionnaires; ensured every event of our ceremony and reception was on time; directed wedding party and guests appropriately; and somehow still found the time to make sure my husband and I ate and were enjoying ourselves. She is an amazing professional and person with the biggest heart. We are so grateful for her service and friendship and recommend her to any and everyone!

Carla's talent knocked us and our wedding guests off our feet. Kind, gracious, and incredibly talented, Carla heard our vision, perfected it, and brought it to life. She was such a pleasure to work with, and was so responsive and professional, yet still somehow a friend during what could have been a very stressful process. I searched for a florist for months, with no luck. When I was referred to Carla, I immediately knew she was it. She welcomed my mother and I to her home and spent time with us planning out each detail. Afterward, she was in touch by phone and email, and even made a few pieces for me to see prior to the wedding to be sure I liked everything. She was flexible with any changes, showed up on time on the day of, and did not make us question even once her talent or capabilities. I would hire Carla again and again for any event.

Carla is simply amazing. Going into my wedding honestly flowers were not my main concern, however looking back on my wedding the flowers ended up being my favorite part. Carla simply does an amazing job and everything comes together so well! All of my guests cannot stop complimenting how gorgeous the flowers and greenery chandelier were! Carla went above and beyond - she recreated an image I had found on Pinterest and made it 10x more beautiful (which I had not thought possible). Carla is simply the sweetest and I can not say enough good things about her or what she puts together. I cannot recommend her enough. This is the best money we spent on the wedding and I am so grateful to her for making everything so beautiful. She's amazing!!!

This is our 3rd family wedding. We have been fortunate to have Carla Duncan lead us through all 3 rehearal dinners, as well as weddings and receptions. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have one vendor that you know without a doubt will be amazing! Our venues in Atlanta have included: Christ The King Catholic Church, The Ritz Buckhead, Cherokee Town Club, Peachtree Rd United Methodist Church, and Capital City Brookhaven. We had one destination wedding at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn in Highlands NC as well. While each venue took on a unique theme for each couple, Carla maked it all POP! Best of all, Carla stays within the agreed buget. I'm not sure how she pulls it off, but she even brings extra flowers! I look forward to working with Carla for our next family wedding.

Alli · Married on 10/07/2017
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND On Occasions of Atlanta florists!! Carla is the BEST florist to work with!! She is extremely talented and is absolutely wonderful. She guided us throughout the process and even has a "play with flowers" day when she prepares a bouquet, boutinneire, and centerpieces ahead of time so that we could give her feedback on them so that on the date of the wedding they would be exactly as we wanted! Carla made the most beautiful flower boxes for us that our guests LOVED, and the bouquets and boutinneires were stunning! She made the whole venue look extraordinary!! You can't find a nicer and more talented florist to work with!

Carla was unbelievable to work with! She listened to everything we wanted for our event and fulfilled each of our requests, and then some! She was professional, responsive, and incredible easy to work with! I look forward to working with her again and would recommend her without hesitation to friends and family!

I never imagined such an amazing person until I met Carla Duncan. The decorator for my daughter’s wedding bailed out 2 weeks before the big day. We called Carla and the rest is history! HONEST, AMAZING, PROFESSIONAL, KIND AND PERSONABLE, BUDGET FRIENDLY, I could go on!❤️

Courtney · Married on 01/14/2017
Carla was absolutely incredible for our wedding in January. Extremely attentive, VERY creative, and such a pleasure to work with. Through my rambles and random late-night texts, she remained level-headed and delivered everything to the n'th degree to make sure that the flowers and decor for our wedding was spectacular. She will go above and beyond to make sure that your day is absolutely beautiful. I would not recommend anyone above her.

Carla and her team went above and beyond!
Sarah · Married on 11/06/2016
Carla was absolutely amazing. She has a great sense of style and was able to come in UNDER budget, which I didn't even think was possible. She offered great tips and advice as well. People were talking about the beauty of our flowers months after our wedding. Thank you so much, Carla!!!!

Carla did a great job at my wedding. They arrived on time and put everything together very fast. The flowers looked gorgeous and fresh! I loved everything! She worked with me to keep the cost under my budget and the quality of her work was excellent. Would definitely recommend her to my other friends.

I wish I could rate Carla higher in every category. The professionalism, quality of work, and flexibility is hard to beat! Carla is a gem and the value is second to none.
Veleda · Married on 08/05/2016
Working with On Occasions of Atlanta was the easiest part of planning for my wedding! Carla Duncan was a pure joy to work with. A few months before our wedding, my husband and I made significant changes to our plans; Carla was flexible and very accommodating regarding our changes. Our flowers were beautiful and exceeded my expectations!!! I highly recommend On Occasions of Atlanta, to anyone planning a wedding or any event requiring beauty and sophistication!!!!
Marianne · Married on 05/29/2016
