  • Where else can you get gorgeous, reasonably priced bunches of stems to create your own floral arrangements and bouquets! Although Sara's floral design work is amazing, my bridesmaids and I wanted to get creative the night before the wedding and put together our own designs. Sara helped guide me as to how many flowers (big blooms, small blooms and greenery) I would need and what would be freshly available for the season. Sara is totally flexible to what services she provides, seeing as she designed and put together my flower crown, but let us buy loose stems from her directly. I could have gone to a farm or order something online, but going through Sara gave me huge price of mind and the reliability the Internet nor a farm stand could. PLUS, whenever she can, she tries to support those local farmers and buy from them. Sara was very easy to work with and totally delivered! Our flowers were absolutely breath taking!!

    Hi Katie! I checked out your sneak peek from your photographer, and I think you and your bridesmaids took the idea of 'getting creative the night before' to a whole new level. Your arrangements using our loose stems of flowers came out beautifully! Plus, you picked such great product to work with--really amazing flowers and foliages! Be sure to let your bridesmaids know that if I'm looking for another assistant that they're hired! ~Sara

  • I used Ivy and Aster for my August wedding at the Mt. Washington Hotel and we couldn't have been happier! She worked with me and was willing to give me the look I wanted for my limited budget. My flowers were so beautiful and really made my photos shine. I was constantly sending her photos of inspirations I found online and we found alternate flowers to get the similar look. Sara was very creative and had great vision! Definitely recommend!

    Hi Claudia! It's so great to hear that you enjoyed your flowers!! And honestly, I don't feel you had to compromise all that much from your photos. You got the look and colors you were going for and used flowers that you either knew you loved or learned more about and realized you loved. It's all about figuring out the best combination of blooms to suit the whole package! Best wishes to you both!! ~Sara

  • While wedding planning, both my husband and I approached flowers as an afterthought. We didn't think it was that important to the space- but Sara proved us wrong!! Sara really listened to everything that we wanted. We are pretty laid back people and wanted simple but elegant florals. She listened to everything we requested- and the florals truly made the reception gorgeous. When we walked into the reception and saw the flowers, we were blown away. Sara was so easy to work with- she brought our bouquets right to the bridal suite the day of- I didn't have to worry about anything! I would absolutely recommend using her as your florist.

    Hi Caroline! We are so happy to hear that you loved the flowers! My goal is to make this process as easy as it can be for you, especially when it comes to the day of your wedding! You work so hard on all the details, and the idea is that it all comes together better than expected and right on time. We work with couples who opt for a more full-service day of delivery, as you did, as well as those who opt to pick up flowers right from our studio in Franklin, NH and yet others who opt for delivery service somewhere in between those two options. In any case, everything is perfectly ready for you to use! Thanks again ever so much for your business. Best wishes to you and Ben!! ~Sara

  • Sara with Ivy and Aster completely exceeded my expectations. I decided on very simple floral designs with babies breath and white hydrangeas but what I received was far more intricate, beautiful and plush than I could have imagined. Sara has an awesome personality that makes you feel like talking flowers is fun and not a task. She is a floral genius and you tell her what you have in mind and she will tell you how she can match your aesthetic desires. She arrived on my wedding day and gave me the most gorgeous bouquet that was so unique and so me. I got to hug and thank her and then she was off like a floral fairy making my venue shine. She is exactly what you want in a florist, fun, professional, and amazing at what she does. Get her for your wedding now!

    Hi Tegan! You are so sweet to say such nice things! We loved working with you to help create the wedding of your dreams! What made your arrangements so interesting and unique was the use of greenery and ferns--it really gave them life! I always suggest couples consider using interesting, lush foliage to really make their flowers feel native to New Hampshire! And your bouquet was filled with seasonal, garden flowers, so you can't possibly go wrong! Thanks again so much for your positivity, and please keep in touch! --From all of us here at IV&A--Sara

  • Sara was a DREAM to work with! We only met twice before the wedding but she was able to capture our vision and execute everything perfectly! Our flowers came out perfectly and were even more beautiful than I envisioned. You can tell that Sara is really passionate about her work. Our delivery was on time and she was easily accessible via e-mail.

  • I talked to a number of florist and really felt like they didn't understand me, my fiance, or what we wanted for our wedding, until we spoke with Sara. She was open to our ideas and totally understood what we wanted. It was so great to finally talk to someone who wasn't only interested in getting us to buy more than we'd planned. Everything came out perfectly the day of - the flowers were beautiful and we were so happy with them! If we were doing it all over again we'd DEFINITELY hire Ivy & Aster again in a heartbeat!

    I am so happy that you enjoyed your flowers! We too of course love flowers, and I love selling beautiful flowers (it really is my dream job), but I feel like there are two ways I can go about it; I can either try and oversell my couples on their wedding vision and scare them away with huge numbers so they never call or email again, or I can try and help them find a way to get their look and stay close to or within their budget. I always say that you can lead a horse to water but you can't force him to drink! There are so many great flowers out there that couples may or may not have heard of that can help reduce their flower budgets while still giving them the look they are after. You were really able to take advantage of this idea, and I am so happy you loved the results! ~Sara

    Hi Karyn! Thanks so much for your review! I'm glad to know you loved our work and creativity! Each event has a unique budget and a unique need for flowers...most want it to be as beautiful as possible for a 'reasonable' budget, but reasonable is not always the same across the board. Part of my job is to help you decide on what 'reasonable' means to you, and then of course work with you to find the perfect flowers, arrangement styles or candle options to best suit your vibe! I'm always happy to help couples find that perfect balance, whether that means picking the more cost effective flower or opting for candle rentals vs. fresh flowers! It was great getting to know you and help you with your special day! ~Sara

  • We used Sara and her team as part of our package at the Omni Mount Washington. I went into the process not knowing ANYTHING about floral design or what I was looking for. Sara sat down with my fiance and myself and went over everything. She was phenomenal! I was a bit hesitant not seeing anything before but she really knocked it out of the park. I can't say enough good things about her and her team! Thank you so much for making my day that much more special!

    It's so good to hear that you loved your wedding flowers! We try very hard to make every single event special and unique and to stay true to what we discuss at our consultation(s) and then describe in our very detailed estimates. I feel like for those who choose not to get a sample arrangement prior to the big day leads to a really awesome surprise that you'll never forget, so I'm glad you got to experience that! You should always feel good enough about your wedding vendors to trust them 100%, and if you don't, you should consider someone else! I'm so happy that you feel we exceeded your expectations!

  • To anyone considering booking this vendor, once you work with Sara, there will be nothing else to think about. She is OUTSTANDING! Sara was extremely easy to work with, she is creative, professional, and worked with us to create the perfect aesthetic within our budget. When I look back at our pictures, I am still wowed by her work, especially with my unique bridal bouquet. I get compliments all the time on the arrangements she and her team created, and ABSOLUTELY recommend her for any event requiring floral design! I will certainly be reaching out to her again when the opportunity arises, and very much look forward to working with a trusted and ridiculously talented professional again. Thank you Sara and the Ivy and Astor Floral Design team for helping to make our wedding day so unforgettable!

    Hi Melissa! It's so wonderful to hear from you! Thanks so much for your thoughtful review! I find it very important to work with couples budget's to my best ability--I know you wanted to have tall centerpieces for your formal winter wedding, so we did beautiful arrangements of lush winter greens alternating with our rental tall silver candelabras--it was a magical winter wonderland! Everyone's priority for flowers is unique and I am so happy that you loved the final product! And your bouquet was super fun...I'm loving the photos you've sent me from your photographer! Best wishes to both you and Daniel! ~Sara

  • Sara was wonderful to work with and exceeded my expectations. I gave her many pictures of what I wanted and the flowers she did were better and completely appropriate to the venue, the Omni Mt. Washington Resort. My calla lily bouquet was exquisite and the table flowers for our small Friday night dinner were lovely. Sara even found a way to utilize them at the reception Saturday night. The ballroom required something special and Sara did not disappoint. The large table arrangements filled the room perfectly yet still allowed for those sitting together to see each other and converse. They were breathtaking and we received so many compliments. The extra votives that she used set the mood for the room. Sara also had gorgeous vases and even plate chargers that she recommended and they pulled everything together. You will not be disappointed with her work!

    Hi Alyssa! I'm so glad you enjoyed your flowers for your two-day event! Our team did particularly love your tall centerpieces on Saturday night...they were effortless, elegant and impressive all at the same time. And so very #woodsychic which we all love

  • Sara is incredible! She is so kind, knowledgeable, responsive, and accommodating! Since I was not local to my venue we did all of the arrangements via phone and I had no idea where to start, but Sara made the process so easy for me! I sent her a few pictures of flowers I liked and she was able to customize a quote for me at more than one price point to help me finalize everything. We went back and forth a few times before finishing the final details and she was so helpful throughout the entire process. I am SO happy with how everything turned out. On the day of my wedding when Sara came in to deliver the flowers I started crying because that moment is when it all hit me that I was getting married because the bouquets and boutonnieres were STUNNING and just perfect. She completely blew my expectations out of the water and I could not be happier. I would highly recommend Ivy & Aster with 100% confidence because I had such an amazing experience.

    Hi Alison! It's so nice to hear this from you! We were thrilled to be a part of your event at the Margate Resort! It's such a wonderful space to being with, and all of your DIY decorations and details made everything we did shine! It is very important to me that couples feel as though they have options for price and that their first estimate isn't the only and final deal. There is so much that can be done financially with just a few flower substitutions or vase substitutions or even flower color substitutions that I feel as though couples need to know about! You don't have to compromise your look for price. I am so happy that you loved everything we provided!

  • We worked with Sara for our wedding. From the very beginning she was super meticulous. She would ask me questions that I had not even thought of in the process. The flowers we were looking for required a special pedestal to be built to look more like a intertwined tree-like structure. They turned out better than I could have imagined. We were getting constant compliments, not just from our guests, but from the venue and vendors. The venue (who holds about 4-7 weddings a weekend, every weekend) said it was the coolest centerpieces they had ever seen! She was very flexible, even until the end, when we were still having changes being made.

    Hi Laura! We loved being a part of your wedding at the Mountain View Grand (it was our first time there and hopefully not our last!)! The custom centerpiece pedestals that we 100% built were for me the highlight of our 2015 wedding season. I love them, and I am so glad that you loved them too! They are perfect for the couple who wants to bring the natural beauty of New Hampshire into their elegant, formal, ballroom dinner. Wishing you and Dax nothing but the very best! We'll see you on this coast again soon! ~Sara

  • I wrote a review a couple months ago but apparently it didn't post. Glad I checked because Sara and her team definitely deserve a 5 star review! My husband Anthony and I got married on October 4, 2015 at the Mt. Washington Hotel. Sara is the in-house florist for them, and upon meeting her, we quickly knew that, in-house or not, we would hire her in a heartbeat. She was so great at listening to our ideas and really got a sense of our vision for our wedding. Our bouquets were a lovely combination of rustic, fall colors with a little bit of flair (orange calla lilles anyone?) and they were simply perfection. Sara also provided us with ceremony decor and centerpieces for the reception room. They were all outstanding. If you're getting married in the NH area, definitely look her up. You will not be disappointed.

    Hi Nicole! I'm glad you checked back as well! Thanks so much for your review, I really appreciate it! Hoping you and Anthony enjoyed your first holiday season as newlyweds

  • Ivy & Aster were wonderful to work with for my wedding! I had MANY emails back and forth with Sara throughout the whole planning process and she was quick to respond and helpful throughout the whole thing. She listened to all of my requests and everything was absolutely perfect and exactly how I wanted it the day of! Highly recommended!!!

    Hi Lauren! Thanks so much for your feedback. It always seems like tons of emails, but really, it's a completely normal part of the planning process, and is the reason you had flowers and our other rental items that perfected your day, so no worries! So happy to have been a part of your beautiful wedding day and glad you enjoyed the final product! It was a pleasure to work with you! ~Sara
