From the first time Lesle and I spoke when I was in early stages of planning, I knew she was going to make at least this part of the wedding planning process seamless and fun...and she did! I lived out of town during the planning process and the wedding was a bit of a "destination" for her as well, but she made the whole process incredible! Even before I saw the final product I told her, I am going to tell everyone about you!! She said, you didn't even see the flowers yet! Wait to make sure you are happy! But I just knew. She is so passionate about what she does and really loves her work, and it shows. The morning of the wedding when she arrived with the bouquet, my eyes filled with tears because it was even more beautiful than i could have envisioned! Prior to the planning, I wouldnt have even considered myself a "flower person" :) but she educated me and made it an exciting part of the planning process. Not to mention the bridesmaids bouquets, centerpieces, EVERYTHING was just done with so much care and it really brought my entire vision together. Everyone loved the flowers!! She worked with my budget and even offered great suggestions of ways to scale back prices without losing the quality work to keep within a certain range. My friends the morning of the wedding after she delivered all the flowers said to me, "how do you know Lesle?" I said, "she's my florist!" They thought we had been friends long before that because of just how personable and awesome she was and how much care she took in creating beautiful flowers for our wedding day. I really can't say enough!! There wasn't one part of the process I can give you a "con" about, because it was all great! I can't wait to share more pictures and if you want this part of your planning journey and big day to be special and fun, book her!! She really is the best. !!!Aug 8, 2018Verified

Lesle was great to work with. She had some great ideas, and the bouquets and arrangements were gorgeous. She took into account what I wanted and the idea pictures I brought and then was able to fine tune them to make them perfect. Prices were very reasonable, and she was so helpful with being flexible with delivering to multiple places to make it easier for us!Oct 20, 2018VerifiedSomething Old Something New's reply
Nicole, it was a privilege to help you with your wedding flowers! You had great colors, and I could tell, a great family too! Thanks for letting me be a part of your big day! Lesle

Lesle is amazing! She was more like another family member than a vendor! I would recommend her 20 times over. She not only listened to my vision but I could tell she was on the same page as I was and I am still getting compliments on my center pieces and bouquets!Feb 27, 2018VerifiedSomething Old Something New's reply

Lesle was so great and easy to work with. She had great ideas and suggestions, was very flexible with scheduling and made the process less stressful. Lesle was very thoughtful and stopped by the venue early on the day of the wedding to set up everything and ensure the details were perfect. Bouquets, centerpieces, and corsages were beautiful and turned out better than I could have asked for. I would highly recommend Lesle, she was such a joy to work with! Thanks again Lesle!Oct 11, 2017Verified

Lesle did an awesome job with the flowers for my wedding. She went above and beyond in working with me, the bakery, and the venue. I got so many compliments on the flowers and the centerpieces, and honestly I've never seen such beautiful colors in a wedding bouquet! She is professional, responsive, and it's obvious that she really enjoys what she does and is ok with a challenge (like having it downpour and moving everything inside!!). Thanks Lesle for making our wedding so beautiful!Aug 11, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All wedding packages include a free, designer's choice, toss bouquet or flower girl bouquet. At the end of the design session, I use the remaining stems to do up these personal flowers. I'm simply making good use of all flowers we purchased for your wedding package rather than ordering specific, extra flowers for these secondary items.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I recommend that brides search pinterest for wedding flower ideas that represent your wedding colors and overall theme. They are great conversation starters for our initial meeting. At that first meeting we can discuss favorite flowers you may like, as well the number and size of personal flowers you need, ceremony flowers, and reception decor. I'll bounce back with a quote, and we'll tweak everything from there until we get it just as you need it! If we are meeting at my place, we'll even take a tour among the flowers to see if there's anything that strikes your fancy.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I learned a great deal from my mother, who took floriculture in college. And interned with a local florist as well. After several years of doing wedding flowers, I continue to fine tune my skills and techniques thru networking with other flower farmers, florists, and colleagues. I'm always on the hunt for unusual greens and flowers to include in my flower gardens and have even reached out to Thailand once to get the ultimate in orchids for one of my many special brides!!
