My husband and I worked with Laura on our flowers for our December 1st 2018 wedding. We are still so in awe of her amazing work! We knew she would over deliver based on our discussions regarding our vision and expectations, and how easily she understood what we were looking for. It was evident she cared about our opinions but also knew when to guide us to help us find exactly what we wanted. The reception center pieces, girls and guys bridal party flowers, ceremony space, sweetheart tables, entrance table and bar arrangements were all spectacular. I am so happy we got to work with Laura. I look forward to working with her in the future. She really has an eye for Beautiful flowers and what looks great together :) from early on I knew we could trust her with one of the most improtant moments of our lives! :)Dec 9, 2018Laura McDowell ~ Elegant Events's reply

Thank you, Michelle. It was my pleasure!
Laura was amazing and really knows what she is doing. She was flexible and patient and really wanted to understand the look I was going for. The flowers were even more beautiful than I imagined. I would highly recommend working with Laura.Jun 28, 2018Laura McDowell ~ Elegant Events's reply
I am so glad you found me on Thumbtack! It was my sincere pleasure working with you. I enjoyed every moment and I, too, was very pleased with the results. Thank you so much for your kind words - much appreciated!
Laura was wonderful to work with! She really worked with me to put together something beautiful within my budget. When I first met with her I knew very little about what flowers were in season, what was practical, or what different styles were called; I basically just knew what color scheme I wanted. Laura helped me figure out what I wanted, and then did a wonderful job delivering. Everything looked beautiful and I couldn't be more thankful or thrilled!Jan 31, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing of flowers depends on the wholesale market. I choose to work with seasonal flowers and will always advise
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I am new to Thumbtack. Typically, I enjoy meeting the client in person. I like to get a sense of personality and expectations. With dialogue, I can offer my suggestions and ideas.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?In 1994, I got a job as a floral assistant at an upscale shop. Two years later, I bought the business. The training I received from two talented designers allowed me to expand and grow my business. I sold the retail business after several years to focus on parties and weddings, which I love.
