Julie & Alfred's Wedding 3.31.18
I am a New Orleans native and I got married in New Orleans on 3/31/18 at the Arbor Room in City Park New Orleans. During my search for a wedding florist, I had a few names recommended to me. After about a few seconds on Nola Flora's Instagram page, I knew without a doubt that they would be an amazing florist. They were so passionate in each of their posts and I could not stop looking at all of their creative and unique flower arrangements. After contacting them, I received an email from an email address name of "flowerninjas" which is very appropriately named and a meeting was set up with Ashley. Before the meeting, you fill out a questionnaire that they email to you which Ashley reviews. I feel like many vendors have you fill out something beforehand but they don't review it. That is definitely not the case. Ashley looked over my responses and pictures and pretty much after a 15 minute conversation she could read my personality like a book and understood what I was trying to achieve for the style of the wedding. She articulates and put into words the vision that you try to create with pictures and it is truly amazing how detail oriented she was and what a pleasure it was working with her to create my vision. Also I would like to mention that they also do other rentals such as candles, vases, and in my case stone columns that was featured during the ceremony with two large floral arrangements. They set it all up beforehand and break it down after the wedding too. When the day of the wedding came, the bouquets delivered to where I was getting ready were exactly as I envisioned (but yet somehow better!). I was so thrilled with my bouquet. Later on, I arrived to the Arbor Room earlier than the guests with my bridesmaids. I had to go hide in the waiting room to avoid being seen by guests and the groom before the ceremony, but I could not resist the urge to sneak a peek in the reception room. The flowers, wedding aisle arrangements with petals and candles, the flowers on my wedding cake, and all of the floral and candle table arrangements blew me away. All throughout the night, the bridal party, guests, family, friends, other vendors, and City Park employees were telling me how beautiful the flowers were. I could not be happier with Ashley and the whole Nola-Flora team and will be thinking of creative ways to work with them for any events that I may be a part of in the future. Thank you Ashley and Nola-Flora!
