  • Gabriele is wonderful to work with. She is flexible and met me to plan out my wedding flowers. She then delivered the flowers to my venue the day of the wedding and made sure the Flowers were all pinned on the guys perfectly. She is professional and you get a lot for your money. I would definitely recommend!

  • I can not recommend Gabriele enough. We were married at a vineyard and the romantic, natural look she created could not have been more perfect for the space. I’ve already sent some other friends who are getting married at the same place her way. She is incredibly thorough and has a genuine concern for your happiness. From the first point of contact, she sent a detailed list of what each element entailed and helped me figure out where to modify to fit my budget, suggesting flowers I might not have considered that would help me get more bang for my buck. In the end, I sort of let her run with it and the end result was just beautiful. I had my bouquet made out of seashells and she combined those flowers with such lush greenery and succulents, it blew me away. Beyond her work, she’s just such an incredible person to work with. In an industry where there are so many options and it’s hard to sift through what’s authentic and what’s a sales pitch, she is just so genuine... Read more

  • I found Gabriele Hand Designs through Water's Edge venue recommendations and she was absolutely amazing. We communicated mainly through email and text since I was over an hour away. She made it very easy for me to send pictures of what I wanted and discussed several options with me. The flowers were gorgeous the day of my wedding and everything looked perfect. I would highly recommend her for your wedding day if you want the perfect flowers :)

  • Gabriele did an amazing job designing my centerpieces, aisle decor and bouqets at my wedding at Wadsworth Mansion on 7.20.2019. It was one of the hottest days of the year and she worked hard to make sure my vision was a reality. Everything she created looked exactly like the photos I had sent her. It was everything I could have envisioned. Also, her price was half of what other florist wanted to charge me. I would highly recommend . She was one of the best vendors that I selected and she did exactly what I had asked for.

  • I got married on July 6, 2019 at Saint Clements Castle. I hired Gabriele to do flowers for my wedding that included by bouquet, flowers for my 14 bridesmaids and groomsmen, and lining the aisle with flowers. Everything came out BEAUTIFULLY! Gabriele was extremely professional: she scheduled a time for us to meet and made sure she knew exactly what I wanted for my bouquet and bridesmaids flowers. She had a tons ideas in her portfolio for me to look at, and was able to combine aspects of many bouquets in order to create the perfect one for me. Additionally, I really wanted my bridesmaids to have just ONE large flower. Other vendors told me it would not be possible to find flowers of the size I wanted. However, Gabriele was up to the challenge and made beautiful composite roses (which I had never heard of). She was also very helpful in terms of delivery. I wanted my aisle lined with petals and Gabriele did this and THEN drove to another site where I was doing my first look and family phot... Read more

  • Gabriele is such a talented florist. From the first time we met I knew she understood my vision for my wedding. I sent her pictures of some ideas and she made it happen and even more beautiful than I expected. I am so happy she was our florist. She delivered and set everything up at the venue. Thank you Gabriele for making my day more beautiful than I envisioned.

  • I decided to work with Gabriele based on her kindness, response to emails, and when meeting her seeing her creativity and openness to hearing what I liked. Leading up to the wedding I would email her with any inspo I found and she was always on board with my vision! We had a winter wedding and I requested alot of greenery with hints of burgundy and berries. The bouquets came out beautiful - mine was exactly what I imagined, the bridesmaids however had a bright pink flower in there that I wasn't crazy about.. BUT the bouquets beautiful! Gabriele was on time dropping the bouquets off to my house the day of the wedding. There was some miscommunication with who was purchasing the berries for the centerpieces and when Gabriele left my house to go set up at the venue she actually stopped at a store and picked up cranberries to include in the centerpieces which I am SO appreciative of her doing that! The centerpieces did have that bright pink flower in there but again, the centerpiece as a... Read more

  • Gabriele was amazing! The flowers were everything I wanted them to be and more. I got so many compliments on the bouquets and the centerpieces. Gabriele was more than willing to work around my budget, and delivered on everything I asked for and was promised to me. I have zero complaints and have already recommended her to a few other friends getting married in the near future.

  • Not only a very sweet woman but the experience was like I was sitting with family. Met at her house and played with her cat and dog while looking at flowers. Definitely something I’ll remember!
