Floral Arranging Class Via Zoom
I had the opportunity to recently participate in Amy's Zoom floral arranging class. What a great way to learn a new skill during this time. Amy delivered the fresh local flowers, vase and local goodies to my front door and all I had to do was click on the Zoom link Amy sent to start the class. Amy, many thanks for such a fun virtual evening!Sent on 04/13/2020
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Jarin, it was so great to have you in the class! I'm glad you had fun! I did too! Can't wait to meet you in person someday!

AMAZING! Beautiful and could not have done it without Amy!
Amy is seriously so incredible. She was so easy to work with and was so thorough with everything with the wedding. I know for a fact that I would not have been able to do the wedding without her. I had Amy do coordination and design/floral and it was just absolutely perfect. She understood my vision so well and made sure everything went so smoothly. She was great with the vendors and patient with me too. She provided so many helpful resources for planning and was honest, flexible and extremely helpful. She was also so professional and so organized. The wedding was exactly what I envisioned and I am so grateful. Seriously, book Amy! It was SO worth it.Sent on 11/05/2019
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Oh I miss you already! You were such a pleasure to work with! And your families are wonderful too! I had so much fun. And it makes me ridiculously happy that you loved the aesthetic! I did too! I loved your vision. I took some of your arrangements apart today and put the blooms that looked good into small vases so I can enjoy them this week in the studio. :-) I hope you have an amazing honeymoon! xoxo

I can’t thank Amy and her team enough. I had given Amy ideas and also creative freedom and I don’t think I could have imagined the flowers and decorations better than they looked. Everything was GORGEOUS and my ideas were brought to life in a way I could never put together. Amy should be your final stop for your day to look just like you imaginedSent on 11/07/2019
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Alex, I'm sooooo happy you loved everything! I really had a blast coming up with such a unique recipe for you! And unique shapes! Ahhh, I loved it! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a special time. I wish you a million years of happiness and love! Also, I think you guys every time I listen to one of my true crime podcasts! xoxo

Amy did such a great job with the bouquets. The waterfall bouquet she did for the bride was perfect, and she loved it the moment she first saw it.Sent on 06/09/2019
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Roscoe, thank you so much for your sweet words! I loved making the arrangements, especially that cascade bouquet. I can't wait to see Alyssa's images! You guys looked so amazing! I wish you all the best! Give Stephanie a hug for me!

Amy Wurster with Knots N' Such was absolutely amazing to work with! Not only did she do a beautiful job with the flowers, she was also so kind, understanding, and patient throughout the whole wedding planning process. Highly, highly recommend!Sent on 11/11/2018

Jiemin · Married on 09/22/2018
Words cannot describe how thankful I am for Amy's help! My friends said I was the calmest bride they've seen, but I know I wouldn't be so relaxed if Amy were not there setting up every detail and making sure things go smoothly. I booked Amy for my day-of coordinator, but she was able to answer all my miscellaneous questions throughout the year. The actual detail-planning started around two weeks before the wedding. For me, it's sufficient because I've already put together a plan, but just need someone to run through and make sure it sounds plausible. After I dropped off all my decorative pieces at the reception place on Thursday (two days before the wedding), I became completely hands-off. Amy really took care everything on the day and made my vision alive.
If anything, I would even more highly recommend Amy for floral design. Her floral design was absolutely amazing! My bouquet has all the elements that I love. I was holding it the entire time during the photo shooting, and Brian (my photographer) had to take it away for a moment just so I can pose to take some "proper" pictures with my hubby. LOL.Sent on 10/03/2018
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:I love that photo Jiemin! You looked so amazing that day. Incredibly beautiful and radiant! I'm so glad I was about to help in making you glow. :-) You had such a gorgeous vision - it was really one of my fave weddings ever! I had so much fun working with you and am so glad we can keep in touch through social media! I will be watching for all those other life milestones you share with Peter! Best wishes! xoxo
Julia · Married on 07/22/2018
Amy at Knots 'N Such was such a wonderful joy to work with!!! From the very beginning, she was kind, professional, excited with us, and willing to try whatever we wanted! She was so easy to work with, and she made such beautiful things happen within our budget. She was also honest about what we could let go of without losing the 'feel' of our wedding since we did not have an unlimited budget (I wish!). Our flowers for the wedding day were absolutely gorgeous, stunning, better than I even imagined! She designed the florals on a pergola that my dad built us as the backdrop to our ceremony, and it was breathtaking. My bridal bouquet was perfection - every detail was tended to. Our greenery and table design were simple, clean, elegant, and exactly what I had in mind. Amy made my dreams come to life and more - I cannot thank her enough and would definitely recommend her and use her for florals or planning in the future!Sent on 08/02/2018
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Julia! I can't begin to thank you enough for letting me fulfill your vision! It was so fun and absolutely beautiful! I'm so so so happy that you loved it all. I did too. :-) I love the sneak peek pics and can't wait to see more! You'll be famous in KNS land! haha. Let's please stay in touch! xoxo
Amy · Married on 06/23/2018
Our experience with Amy surpassed any level of high expectations that we could set for our big day. Throughout the experience and days leading up, Amy exhibited the utmost professionalism, friendliness, patience, and on the day her true talent was evident. We could not be happier with our experience, and would recommend using Amy at Knots ‘N Such to anyone who needs floral services.Sent on 06/26/2018
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Amy! Let's do it again! haha! I enjoyed working with you guys so much. And the surprises that all of you did for each other - it brought tears to my eyes! I'm so very happy that you loved the flowers. I thought they looked so pretty with those amazing dress - yours and the maids were exceptionally stunning! I wish you and Kenny millions more days of happiness, beauty, and love!

Best wedding planner and florist, hands down! Amy is a wonderful person and a pleasure to be around, like having a great friend involved in your special day!! Everything was exactly as my daughter wanted, tasteful, sophisticated, and beautiful! Amy ran everything perfectly despite the pouring, freezing rain! I’m so grateful for Amy, she lifted so much from my daughter’s shoulders and ran with it. Thank you so much, Amy!!

I had so much fun and I'm ecstatic to that everyone loved everything! That seriously makes my year! I hope to see all of you again someday! Many hugs to you guys!!!
Dale · Married on 04/07/2018
Amy was both our coordinator and florist, and she did such an amazing job! I gave her some thoughts on color scheme/overall feel and the final product was perfect - the flowers were beautiful and I loved the way she designed everything. Even though the weather was terrible, Amy was flexible and professional, and we absolutely love how everything turned out. She was also incredibly communicative ahead of the wedding and made sure my husband and I kept up with our to-dos.Sent on 05/13/2018
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Dale! You had such a gorgeous vision so I REALLY loved making it come to life! The colors and textures were so perfectly YOU! I wish I could do it all over again - despite the rain! haha. And you made the coordination process so easy - you were so on top of everything! I hope you guys had an awesome honeymoon and are enjoying marital bliss! I hope to see you again - let's do coffee or a beer soon!

Laura · Married on 10/21/2017
We used Knots n' such for day-of (/month-of) coordination and florals for our wedding. Overall we had a great experience with Amy, Ivana and the team! They are very professional and responsive, and comfortable to work with. Their month-of plan really keeps you on track- you will have a weekly phone call where they go through a comprehensive list, for which they'll send follow up emails to remind you all that you need to accomplish that week. The flowers at our wedding were beautiful and Amy incorporated local flowers from farms in the area, which was very important to me! In general, I will give the advice that day-of coordination is really key in feeling like you are just able to enjoy your own day. It also gives you full control over your planning process- for better or for worse! I think Ivana & Amy made the execution process as easy as it could have been. And by having the flowers done by the planner, it took out an extra element of coordination.Sent on 11/01/2017
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Laura, thanks for such an informative review! You are so right - coordination is an intense communication process during that last month, but it is sooooo worth it! We loved working with you and your family and hope we can work with you again for any special occasion you might have! XO
Sarah · Married on 08/26/2017
Amy was incredible. I was not the most hands on bride but one thing I did know was what I wanted my flowers to look like and the overall vision I had for the wedding. She worked within my budget and made cost conscious suggestions and substitutions which I greatly appreciated as you don't find that kind of service and honesty every day. She delivered my flowers to my house which was at least 30 minutes from the venue location and I was so grateful for that added service. My flowers were stunning, so unique, exactly what I wanted and more. The tables were stunning. She did such an amazing job. Her colleague was also super sweet and helpful. Very reasonably priced for her flowers, (I only used her as my florist). Thank you so much Amy!! XOXO Sarah Rumsey (Bechtle)Sent on 09/05/2017
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Sarah, I had so much fun designing for you! And I was amazed by how beautiful you looked that day! Your photo is the header of my facebook page! I wish you an eternity of honeymoon bliss! XO
Allison · Married on 06/10/2017
Amy is AMAZING! She truly was a god send through the wedding planning process. My husband and I hired her as the day-of-coordinator/florist/decorator and she went above and beyond just day-of planning. She was there every step of the way to provide us with guidance and assistance. Additionally, she was flawless the day of the wedding. She took everything off our hands and coordinated it all beautifully. Amy is worth every penny and I'm eternally thankful to her!!Sent on 06/19/2017
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Allison! Thanks for your sweet words! I loved working with you guys, it was so much fun! Especially the day of! Your dances were the most memorable I've ever seen! Loved them! I went through all your wedding photos last night and I drool over their beauty. Everything came together so nicely. And you looked incredible! Wow! XO
Erica · Married on 05/27/2017
I came to Amy almost in tears because of how overwhelmed I was with wedding planning. I booked her for coordinating and floral design and it was one of the best decisions I made. She immediately put me at ease with her calmness and comforting personality. Amy has a passion for what she does and helped me with so many decisions! She has a lot of experience and any bumps that arose she handled quickly and efficiently. She also did my florals for the decor and bouquets and they were beautiful! I told her the colors and pointed out a few pictures I liked and she created amazing pieces that I was more than happy with. Amy was so great to work with and I felt very taken care of and if you are considering either a coordinator or florist I HIGHLY recommend Amy!Sent on 06/05/2017
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Erica, you're the absolute sweetest! I loved working with you so much. Josh, your friends, your family, all are wonderful! You are one blessed lady! And you deserve every bit of it. Being able to turn your planning and design experience into an enjoyable one means so much to me! It's why I do what I do! I wish the best for you guys and please let me know if you end up staying on the East Coast! I would love to see you again someday! XO
Erica · Married on 05/27/2017
First off, Amy was extremely friendly and completely interested in every detail of my vision right from the get go. She was extremely organized and very reassuring that she would make this a low stress and enjoyable time for me. I am NOT a planner and have difficulty making decisions, so I came to her needing a lot of assistance. She broke things down in small portions that made everything seem so much less overwhelming. I also appreciated that she had two different services offered so we could choose the one that fit our budget. I was so happy with the service we received and our wedding day turned out to be an absolute dream. As I stated above, I am not very good at making detailed decisions. When it came to florals I felt clueless on what kind of flowers, what size, or what colors I wanted. I told Amy I wanted the flower arrangements to be a variety of whites and pretty much allowed her to surprise me with her creative expertise. On wedding day I couldn’t believe the arrangements when she opened the box. It was perfect. I couldn’t have designed a better more fitting bouquet if I tried. She was able to see my style and theme of the decor and create beautiful complimentary arrangements for our day. She even surprised me with an extra flower piece on our arbor! It was so sweet.What they did really well -Putting my husband and I at ease with all the planning details. We were
incredibly busy at the time and lived far from any family to help with coordination.
Knots N’ Such was our saving grace in helping bring everything together.
I appreciated that I never felt pressure to go over budget with choices on decor.
She gave me options and understood when we didn’t have the money to splurge
in certain areas. One huge perk of working with KNS was the different packages we could chose
from. Having the one month coordination option was perfect for us. It allowed me to hand off the stress the month before our day and basically just answer any questions we had.Sent on 03/28/2018
Devin · Married on 04/22/2017
Amy at Knots N Such was so wonderful to work with. She was on the phone with me immediately after my initial contact to discuss my vision and needs. She stayed in touch throughout the planning process and was always happy, friendly and energetic. She utilized my Pinterest board to get the best idea of my vision for my wedding flowers, which I found extremely easy and helpful! She worked diligently on my requests and she did not disappoint. My flowers were amazing and EXACTLY what I wanted. From color palette, to size, to flower choice...she nailed it. The bouquets were beautiful and the ceremony display was immaculate. She took my vision and brought it to life better than I ever could've hoped. I highly recommend Knots N Such thanks to Amy!Sent on 04/25/2017
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Oh Devin, you are so sweet! I was so honored to be a part of your day. Thank you for allowing me to bring your vision to life! I loved every part of it!

Rebekah · Married on 03/18/2017
I love Knots 'N Such! Amy is very passionate about weddings, and making it a success for the couple. My husband and I loved her professionalism and execution on our wedding day. She kept our large bridal party inline and focused during rehearsal as well. During the planning stage Amy walked me through all the "to do's" or "can do's" for a wedding. She respected my choice to arrange somethings on my own. I was provided a list of recommended venders and things to look for in a vender if I chose another one.Sent on 03/10/2018
Amy was perfect and totally worth my time and money. The service exceeded my expextations. It was a privledge to work with her and her staff on my wedding day. Knots 'N Such focused on the bride and putting out any fires which happened on my wedding day, so I could relax and enjoy the day of festivities with my husband! Love you Amy! Thank you again for making our day perfect! -Rebekah
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Rebekah! I loved your Indian - American fusion wedding! It was a delight to work with you before and on wedding day. I'm so glad you were happy with the results. All our hard work paid off! Tell Wick I say 'hi' and happy anniversary (soon)!!!
Angie · Married on 10/21/2016
Amy at Knots N' Such was AMAZING. We hired her for florist services and month-of planning. She made planning a wedding so much less stressful, particularly because I was graduating from graduate school two weeks before my wedding. She met with me several times to pick out linens and florist arrangements and was so kind and patient when I changed my mind several times! She put me at ease and took a lot of the planning off my plate, particularly in that last month when we had weekly phone calls to talk about what needed to be completed still and to allow me to transfer my "wedding vision" to her! Her floral arrangements were perfect. We had so many compliments and their uniqueness matched perfectly with the wedding venue. Her prices are very reasonable and were the best value I could find for both wedding planning and floral services. I wasn't planning to hire a wedding planner but I highly recommend it. It made the day so much easier and I was able to focus on enjoying every second of it! I just can't say enough how thankful I am to have had Amy on our wedding team!Sent on 11/13/2016
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Angie, I miss you! It was so wonderful helping you plan and design your wedding! You have amazing taste and I had so much fun helping you achieve your vision! I wish I could do it all over again! I hope you're enjoying your move back to the Midwest. When you come back to Durham, you must let me know if you have an extra minute to revisit Cocoa Cinnamon! XO
Brenda · Married on 10/15/2016
I cannot say enough good things about Amy! She was amazing, always smiling, bubbly, organized, and professional. She was able to calm my bridezilla moments as well as keep me on track and focused. She helps even when shes doesn't know she's helping. My dad was so nervous and overwhelmed and he watched her build the mantel piece for the ceremony and that helped put him at ease more than anything. He just went on and on about how much he liked Amy. The day of the wedding I knew she was doing a great job because if there were any problems I never knew about them. I also hired her as our florist and the flowers were stunning!!!!!!!! Her flower arrangements look more natural and classy than anything I have ever seen before. Loved loved loved them! Her attention to detail blew everyone away!!!! She is sweet and personal and I truly loved every second of working with her.Sent on 10/16/2016
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Brenda! I miss you already! You and David were such a treat to work with. I enjoyed every second with you too! I told your dad that it is truly bitter sweet - I'm so happy for your new marriage, but I'm so sad to see our time working together come to an end! Ask David if he'd like to plan a one year anniversary party? He'd kill us! LOL Please stay in touch. Best wishes to you both! My hair coloring partner in crime!
Heather · Married on 10/01/2016
We were planning our NC wedding remotely while living in here NYC - a definite challenge, as you could imagine. Early on, we were on the fence when it came to wedding coordinators; looking back, there is absolutely NO way our day would have turned out as amazing without Amy.Sent on 10/14/2016
We began working with Amy a month before our wedding. The weekly lead-up calls were incredibly helpful - she'd think of things that I had never considered (or had time to!) In the week leading up, she handled all the communication with our vendors like a champ, ensuring everyone knew what they were doing, when, where, etc. On our actual wedding day, I'm still not sure what she and her assistant did NOT do - from prep, to running the ceremony, to getting through all the key moments at the reception - she was totally on it and, if anything did go wrong, we had no idea. It's one of the happiest days of our lives and that's all I'll remember, as it should be. She is top notch and we really loved working with her - if you're still searching for someone to help with your wedding, I highly recommend you speak with Amy!
Poppy Belle Event & Floral Design's reply:Heather, you're such a doll! I LOVED working with you guys! And your family and friends were such a treat, too! It was one of the funnest weddings I've attended! And I'll always remember your squad as the ones who finished that ginormous bottle of bubbly! I was super impressed! haha I hope your honeymoon was fantastic and being back in NYC as newlyweds is off to a fantastic start. You guys rock and I'm so honored that you chose me to be a tiny part of your wedding day! Please keep in touch! XO

Amy is absolutely wonderful to work with. Throughout the entire planning process, I never once felt overwhelmed. Amy was exceptional at scheduling vendor meetings and connected us with some phenomenal catering, DJ, venue, and photography options. The flowers for our wedding were just perfect, and all of the little details and effort that Amy put into the design of the ceremony and reception were beautifully done. Everything about our day was beautiful and perfect. Having Amy as our wedding planner and florist was worth every single penny. We highly recommend her for anyone looking for wedding planning services! We have gotten so many compliments from our friends and family that our wedding was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended.
