    Emblem flowers was such a dream to work with and brought my Springtime floral vision to life for my wedding. Leading up the wedding, Charmain was so enthusiastic and fun to talk to and strategize flowers with, really accommodating and was very conscientious of my restricted budget. I’m pretty particular about design and flowers and she did an amazing job securing the very best flowers of the season, and creating beautiful arrangements. My overall wedding design was very simple and her flowers were the stars of the show. She also gave me advice on other design details and was a springboard for design strategy. I particularly loved my bouquet, which incorporated several of my favorite flowers, along with some beautifully scented ones that made my walk down the aisle even sweeter. The men’s boutonnières were also so surprisingly cute and original, a detail that I would have considered less important (sorry, boys) but were really special. Emblem went above and beyond for my wedding, made the process fun and delivered a beautiful day.

    Charmain at Emblem Flowers is such an amazing floral designer and so wonderful to work with! I reached out to Emblem Flowers to create floral arrangements for my wedding reception tables and head table. I already admired Charmain’s gorgeous floral designs on her instagram/website and the way she designs flowers together. I loved how aesthetically beautiful, timeless, unique, modern, natural and artistic her arrangements look. And, I knew I wanted her floral arrangements to be a part of my wedding day & was so happy to get to book with Emblem Flowers. It was so great and helpful to work with Charmain. She has such a wealth of knowledge in flowers and design aesthetics. She provided great designer insights and advice on the floral direction in light of the colors, table layouts, budget, and helped me to figure out the overall look I wanted for the flowers. And, her genuine care for the floral aesthetics and for what I wanted was so reassuring. I felt even more confident, after talking with her, that her floral arrangements would be so beautiful at the reception. And, on the day of my wedding, I was truly blown away to see how breathtakingly beautiful the reception flower arrangements turned out. Charmain exceeded my expectations and her flowers made such a huge impact on the atmosphere of the reception. They brought so much beauty, life, abundance and that romantic charm I wanted for the reception. I could not have been more happy and thankful to have Charmain design the florals for my head table and the reception tables! My only post-wedding regret is not having invested more to have Emblem Flowers also design my wedding bouquet and all the other wedding florals as well. I had a venue package that already included some florals. And, in light of saving money, I went with the venue package florist for my bouquet and some other florals. In hindsight, if I could go back in time, I wished I invested more to have Charmain do all the floral pieces for my wedding. Charmain has such an incredible eye for beauty that is rare to find, and the ways she designs florals is such a work-of-art! I loved having her stunning floral arrangements at my wedding reception. They really made such a huge difference at the wedding reception atmosphere and brought so much beauty and life to the reception. I could not have been more happy with how her florals turned out. I so recommend investing in having amazing and gorgeous work-of-art floral arrangements by Charmain on your wedding day! Her stunning florals are so worth it! I will be admiring her florals in the wedding photos for years to come.
