Working with Julia, the creator and BOTANICAL GURU STYLIST was the greatest part of my wedding experience. Our first meeting was the most fun GIRL DATE of my summer, and we had an amazing brainstorm session where I told her my dreams, and she guided me with advice on how to achieve that vision in my budget. I left the meeting trusting her completely, and she made our wedding day more beautiful than I could have even imagined. Her design was stunning (and better than any pinterest pin I ever saved). She was communicative and early and on top of every single thing. I felt that she not only provided the Floral arrangements for my wedding, but she STYLED it too. She placed every pumpkin and candle and lantern in a perfect spot and curated my wedding to fit our taste in a way that I just couldnt have done myself. Julia is such a fun personable human. You can't help but like her, and trust her. I will recommend her to every bride for the rest of my life.

We loved Julia's creations, and loved working with her! She crushed it ..while on budget. The flowers were GORGEOUS, and the dried beauties are still holding up nicely. We are Fern Botanica fans for life. Thanks for making our bloom dreams a reality!

Finding a florist was one process I was dreading about planning my wedding. I've never been excited about flowers, and felt like most wedding flowers looked the same. Then, I met Julia who forever changed my view on that. She helped calm my uncertainties about this process and even met up with my then fiance and I to get to know us! Fun fact, my hubby is a brewer so I always wanted to incorporate that aspect into the flowers - and she did with barley! Even the groomsmen thought their boutonnieres were cool! I can't stop thinking about how perfect the flowers were on my wedding day and am so thrilled I chose to work with Julia.

Julia at Fern Botanica was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day! We knew from the moment we met her, she was the vendor for us! Her work is beautiful, and she offered super helpful advice while still listening to our original ideas. She was a doll to work with from initial discussions to inspiration shots to execution. My bouquet was a work of art, and my husband and I BOTH cried when we saw how gorgeous the wedding arch was she created. We feel so lucky to have worked with her and feel she truly helped to make our wedding dream a reality. xx

Julia and Fern Botanica was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Her work is absolutely exquisite, she was willing to hear my ideas yet offered really helpful suggestions and advice. All of my wedding guests raved at how beautiful her work was. I especially loved my wedding arch and bridal bouquet. Her work is fresh, classic, elegant, romantic and just plain gorgeous!

Julia was an absolute DREAM to work with! Not only did she create the perfect look for our day, she did it on a budget and found the perfect way to reuse and utilize larger pieces throughout the space to allow us to stick as close to our budget as possible. She listened to our ideas of what we wanted, and surpassed our wildest dreams with an even better execution than we ever hoped for. Every detail was so extremely beautiful and thoughtful (from the greenery placed on menus, to the bouquet of my dreams) I could cry. Thank you, Fern, for making my dream wedding possible!

Fern Botanica was my best decision. Julia provided first class service from start to finish. Her talent is matched only by her kindness, consideration for her clients and passion for her work. Her attention to detail pairs beautifully with her ability to capture that exact “feel” you want brought to life- a difficult balance she manages with ease. There wasn't a single detail I didn't love. You'll be so grateful you worked with her. I know I am.
Julia was a dream to work with for our Long Island City wedding. My husband and I did not have a clear vision for our flowers to start - all we knew was that we wanted something fresh and green. Julia took that little direction and made it into something beautiful, lush, creative and fun, all within our tight budget. She was sensitive to our values throughout the entire process, patient while we made decisions on our own time, and rolled with ease when we threw a late-game chuppah into the mix. I could not have hoped for a more relaxed, transparent and stress-free floral experience, and that is entirely due to Julia’s professionalism. I have dreams about my bouquet. She killed it!

The lovely Julia at Fern Botanica is a floral goddess. Very knowledgeable and extremely creative in her approach to all thing floral and beyond. She has a great eye for really bringing a venue to life and creating a mood. She created the exact the look I was going for (but better!) for my wedding without me having really any idea of what I wanted. Her skills are backed up by her amazingly sweet personality. She’s such a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again!

Julia was everything we were looking for in a florist. We didn't have a lot of money to spend on flowers and she was willing to work with us to bring the most beautiful blooms to our wedding. We sent her about 5 different pictures, exchanged a few emails to figure out exactly what we needed, and had 1 final phone call. No mock-up, we put all our trust in her artistry, and she came through 110%! The bouquets were exactly me, exactly right. Modern, classic, wild, creative, refined all at the same time. She also got us beautiful cut flowers we had requested to put together the centerpieces ourselves. It was a pleasure to work with her; I would recommend her to anyone.
