Starflower did the flowers for my wedding a couple of weeks ago. It was fantastic. I wanted something "fall" to complement the season and bring the outdoors in. With this vague description Jill created the most beautiful, warm, lovely flowers I could have imagined. They were amazing, and quite accessible. I would highly recommend looking at the website, but keep in mind that they have access to all sorts of flowers, not just exotic ones. If you love red and orange mums (like I do) you can have a whole mess of them arranged in a beautiful way, no fussy, expensive lilies or orchids to be seen.

They are also very careful in using local and sustainable producers whenever possible. This is difficult in fall and winter, but there are always options. If you want to send flowers to someone locally, think of this as a great option with little negative environmental impact, just ask to see what is available!
If you are planning a wedding, go see them! They are kind and warm, and even if you don't chose them for flowers, you will probably gain some inspiration, or at least feel a little calmer for a day. This was one of the easiest choices I had in my planning process. Jill and everyone at Starflower are amazing.
Pros: Attention to detail, artistry, lovely flowers
Cons: needs more photo books, hard to visualize end result - but not to worry!
