  • Apryl and her team did a truely outstanding job! Three weeks later and everytime someone talks about the wedding with me they mention how outstanding the flowers were. To say we recieved exactly what was expected would not be accurate, it was much more and better. The flowers were fresh, arrangements were full and lush. No junk fillers, Apryl reviews each flower with you (to the extent you want to know) and puts together arrangments that not only work, but enhance!!! A big thank you to to Petalena, I hope you have another event someday where we can once again have you do the flowers!

  • Wow-that is how I sum up the flowers from Petalena. Apryl was great to work with and had such creativity. We had a few ideas with what we wanted for our wedding and Apryl guided us to make those a reality. Throughout the night and there after we had so many complements on the beautiful arrangements. Prior to our wedding our seating changed and that impacted the number of tables. Apryl was flexible and was able to accommodate that change easily.

  • Apryl was one of my all-time favorite people to work with in planning our wedding. I swear she could read my mind! Our flowers were to die for! She also went above all of my expectations with helping decorate our venue. Our cherry blossom trees where stunning.

  • We used Petalena for the flowers at our wedding last fall and Apryl did a wonderful job! We felt like she listened to our preferences and was extremely easy to work with. At the same time, she had great ideas and suggestions for us within our budget. We wanted to use some of our own personal vases, and Apryl was very accommodating. Our reception was in a library and she did a wonderful job arranging the tables with a variety of small flower arrangements and books. The flowers looked absolutely stunning and exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend her!

  • Not your average florist my friends! April rocks! Let me tell you than other than roses,sunflowers, and Lillies. I know absolutely nothing about flowers! While Petalena does not have a store front. You meet with Apryl at their office, which is very cute and welcoming. We discussed my visuals on my wedding, the decor, my cake, my dress, my jewelry , everything! By the end I felt like I was talking to Avery close friend. We chose flowers that resembled and complemented by dress! Everything was beautiful! Our centerpieces were a joint effort!! I love love my bouquet!

  • Beautiful flowers. GORGEOUS, in fact. Totally completed the look of our wedding. However, in addition to being an extremely talented florist, Apryl and the rest of Petalena are patient, flexible, and so kind. Apryl worked with us so patiently to create a plan that worked within our budget and our vision. Would recommend Petalena hands down!

  • I run the risk of sounding sappy but when I first met with Julie - I felt like I was talking to a friend I had known for years. She was our absolute favorite vendor to work with and if I could give Petalena more stars, I would! At our first meeting, I showed her my wedding flower vision based on a scattering of flower photos I compiled on my iPad. I explained the overall look I was going for and Julie absolutely got the look I had in mind. Julie even went out of her way and met with us at our house to go over final details and at the ceremony site to go over set-up and pick up items for the day of (she went above and beyond). Our wedding flowers were... AHHHH-MAZING! Julie had all the bouquets wrapped in beautiful antique lace that fit perfectly with our theme. We had a gorgeous arch set-up with blooms that were similar but still unique from the rest of our flowers. We also had lovely boutonnieres, cocktail hour hour centerpieces and flowers for my hair.

  • Stop looking - if you care about your flowers and have a vision, Petalena are the designers that will make it happen. One week into our honeymoon, and I am still so over-the-moon about the flower arrangements and personal flowers which Petalena created for us! I cannot thank them enough for their amazing contribution to our wedding. Our vision of the flowers and colors, and their translation of it to reality was absolutely spot on. I have received numerous compliments. We are so lucky to have had Petalena on our team and to have worked with such fabulous professionals.

  • I could not recommend Julie and Apryl highly enough. They are a very talented pair. I was amazed by their ability to take some vague thoughts from someone who knows nothing about flowers or design and turn it into something that met my "vision" perfectly. My contact throughout the process was mostly with Julie, who really went so above and beyond in answering my questions, dealing with curve balls (like unexpected decor requirements from the venue) and staying within our budget. I met with Julie twice, a few months before and then again a couple of weeks before the wedding, and both times she went over every detail of the wedding with so much careful consideration - you can tell she really cares about her work and every client. In addition I emailed Julie a lot of questions since I was procuring a lot of the decor elements myself, and she was both responsive and informative. Everything turned out gorgeous!

  • To say that I adore Julie and Apryl of Petalena is an understatement. With a few random parameters (a couple of specific flowers that I liked, including some fruit, wedding colors and a request for lots of different textures), they delivered literally jaw-dropping flowers. Gorgeous, memorable and not your standard run of the mill flowers. My wedding party was raving about them, my guests were raving about them, and even the serving people at our venue were raving about them and wanted permission to take some of the centerpieces home. My bouquet was delivered right in the moment as I was counting down the final minutes before I got in my wedding dress. I was stressing over the details of the day, wondering if everything would be OK. Once I saw my bouquet, I was ecstatic. It totally surpassed my high expectations and in an odd way, it put me at ease because I knew if my bouquet looked this good, Julie and April would be doing an equally good job transforming the rest of our venu...

  • Apryl was an absolute dream to work with. We only needed two bouquets and three boutonnieres, but we never felt like we were treated like a small job. I knew the types of arrangements I gravitated towards, but I didn't have much of a vision for Apryl to work from - not even a color palette. She took what little information I gave her and delivered flowers that were a perfect fit for us and beautiful beyond my wildest dreams. I was blown away by her talent and passion for flowers and she was just a joy to work with. I can't recommend Petalena highly enough.

  • I *loved* working with Apryl & Julie from my first contact with them. They listened to my jumbled vision of what I wanted for my wedding and didn't make me feel crazy and were also really flexible when I changed my mind about the color scheme. They were really easy and fun to work with -- and had great suggestions that matched my ideas and budget. And they totally delivered with the flowers on the day-of ... we received so many compliments on all of the arrangements. My bouquet was peony + ranunculus perfection and I loved it! Apryl & Julie are a great team -- totally wonderful and totally talented.

  • From the day I first spoke with Julie, I knew I wanted to hire Petalena as our florists. They were extremely flexible from day 1, including holding our meeting at a coffeeshop convenient to me because their studio is outside the city. They were one of our favorite vendors to work with throughout the entire process - always professional and responsive -- I didn't have a "vision" per se, but did have a lot of general ideas that they refined and developed to create truly breathtaking flowers for our special day. We got more compliments on our flowers than almost anything else, and what Petalena put together was way above and beyond what my husband and I had ever imagined. Julie and Apryl are creative, talented, and amazingly nice! They love what they do and it really shows. :)

  • Julie and Apryl of Petalena did such an exceptional job at my wedding. They really listened to my ideas and brought them to life. Their designs were not only what I wanted but a refreshing approach to flowering arranging and general presentation.
