I cannot thank Jenn and Emily enough for their amazing work! I got married in December, gave Jenn a basic description of “winter wonderland with a little Christmas, but not really Christmas” and could not have been more pleased with the results.  After our initial consultation, Jenn provided a number of examples and ideas to help narrow down what I liked or didn’t like.  Jenn was patient, listened to my feedback and came up with additional design ideas until both of us were completely satisfied with the plans.  We chose a simple tiered white wedding cake which Emily then decorated on site after the bakery delivered, it turned out beautifully.  Additionally, Jenn delivered fresh greens to my hotel the morning of the wedding for my stylist to incorporate into my hair.  I was incredibly impressed with the Belles team and how they go above and beyond in customer service.  Also, Jenn took it upon herself to add extra flowers in the bathrooms and pieces to our table settings.  I planned the entire wedding myself, it was so sweet to receive these unexpected surprises on my big day.  We received numerous compliments from our guests and I could not recommend them higher.  My sister is getting married in March and has booked Belles and Thistles, I can’t wait to see what Jenn and Emily come up with for her wedding day!  
And I have to say once more:
Now that I’ve really had a chance to look through the photos, I’m
absolutely aghast at the detail and hard work you two put into making
that wedding look AMAZING. I feel truly lucky to have had both your
talents. The attention to detail and pure art that you brought to an
already lovely venue really resulted in a truly stunning wedding. Even
Dan the photographer commented about the “awesome steampunk flowers”.
I saw things on my wedding day and thought they were pretty, but of
course with all the hullabaloo I didn’t get nearly enough time to
really absorb just how much you guys did. Looking at the photos was
truly breathtaking. I knew that the flowers and decorations would be
cool, but you both absolutely exceeded my wildest expectations. Thank
you BOTH again and I love you both!
We just wanted to thank you for the flowers, they were gorgeous!!

Everyone raved about how lovely my bouquet was!

Jenn, thank you so much for creating such beautiful arrangements for our wedding.
Inside, outside, they were all absolutely perfect and beautiful! When I stood at the
top of the stairs and saw the ceremony site, it took my breath away. I’ll never forget
how amazing it was.  You and Emily are phenomenal & I will sing your praises every
time we talk about our wedding day.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!! You two
are the best!!
I just wanted to say thank you for doing a fabulous job on the flowers and
decorating the hall !!!! It was absolutely beautiful !!!! It was better then I could
have dreamed…
Our flowers were stunning! We received countless complements!
Thank you so very much for bringing so much color and beauty to our wedding!
You will be in great hands with Belles and Thistles!  Jenn and Emily are so creative that you will not be disappointed.  There are so many great things about them and their work that I am simply going to list them (and yes, Jenn is my sister–in-law, but you better believe I would sing their praises even if she wasn’t…and I know people say that all the time, but I only speak the truth):
  • you can give them lots of direction and vision OR let their creative work flow with a few parameters
  • you can come with lots of ideas or no clue what you want….they will help you!
  • they want to make your wedding day complete with their work – they work for you, to make you happy and to make your day great
  • they will work with your budget and figure out how to give you the most bang for the buck
  • they really care about you and their work
What I loved about our wedding flowers:
  • they made a stunt double boutonniere for my husband because they were afraid the real flowers would not hold up in the heat (it was over 100 with the heat index)…come on people, who does this??…and you know what, we used it for pictures later in the night
  • every detail was paid attention to….and they always leave little surprises that are amazing and subtle
  • they fit us…not the florist
  • our color theme and pattern (paisley) was weaved into everything
  • so MANY people told me how beautiful the wedding was
  • they decorated everywhere…bathroom, outside tables, outside garden, tables out front, bar
Thanks and much love to the both of you,
Jillian Janusz
Thank you for the fantastic job you and your partner did on the flowers for the wedding.
We were so happy with how they turned out
We loved our flowers and centerpieces! Thank you for swooping in and saving the day when our last florist bailed!  Which was really a blessing in disguise because your service and product was fabulous!  We will be highly recommending you!
-All the best and thanks, The Taschs

  • Belles and Thistles designed for our wedding June 2nd 2012. I cannot express in words the amount of help and support I received from them during the planning of my wedding and the day of. My family was also so pleased with their work that my dad mentioned Jenn(owner) in his speech!

    From the beginning of the planning process Jenn provided just the right amount of guidance and support as well as letting me have my own creative freedom. She was the most organized vendor we worked with and from the beginning asked event specific questions that I have not even thought of yet. Her thought process and inquisition went far beyond her appointed duties as she not only assisted with the flowers but also helped with many of the logistics of the reception and ceremony.

    When it came down to the final decisions on floral designs I felt as though my vision for how I imagined was made exponentially better by Jenn’s expertise and original aesthetic for design. She was honest to me about what flowers were possible to get and what was within my price range. I felt 100% confident that I had nothing to worry about and that she was going to do an excellent job.

    The day of my wedding I think Jenn either did not sleep or had little elves help her when I saw the amount of hard work and dedication she had put into my floral arrangements. All of my guests said they were the most beautiful they have ever seen. To say Jenn is dedicated and a hard worker would truly be an understatement. She loves what she does, she loves being involved in the wedding planning process, and it shows in the amazing work that she does.

    As you may imagine, I highly recommend Belles and Thistles for any occasion!

  • I had the great good fortune to use Belles and Thistle on four different occasions. My daughter, Cameron was getting married, and I immediately knew who to call….Belles and Thistles.
    The girls had done flowers for my nephew’s high school dance and we were SO impressed with the uniqueness of the designs and the sheer beauty of the bouquet and boutonniere.
    But never did I think I would be so over the top happy with the arrangements they did for me.
    They first did ‘practice’ arrangements for the engagement party as a surprise to show my daughter the different styles and colors she was choosing. The flowers we beautiful and it gave my daughter the opportunity to make actual choices for her wedding flowers.

    Jenn and Emily then did the table decorations for the wedding shower. The colors were perfect. The arrangements were given as gifts at the end and I had several calls saying that the flowers lasted for weeks. I also had Jenn do flowers for our home for the day of the wedding. She did three arrangements, one for my dining table, one for the family room and finally, one for our daughter’s bedroom. The smell, the look, the perfectness of the flowers and arrangements were so in sync with my wishes.
    And of course, they then did all the flowers for the wedding! I carried a ‘Tussie Mussie” which was incredible!
    They are patient with your suggestions and then add their own expertise. The result, perfection in knowing your mind, along with new, fresh and unique ideas that I had never seen before.
    They are both amazing flower geniuses! You will be thrilled and filled with a lifetime of memories that make your occasion perfect!

  • The flowers for Chris & Kristi’s wedding were stunning—and most importantly just what the bride ordered! Jenny and Emily did an amazing job decorating and are so sweet and fun to work with. Cannot say enough good things about them.

  • I have had the unique experience of actually seeing parts of the planning and preparation for events that most people never even think of. I have spent extended periods of time (on other business) in the location where Jenn has her design studio, and she has been gracious enough to let me in on some of the process.

    She thinks through every aspect of an event and develops a design that fits the occasion and the people involved. She is wildly creative in her thinking and seems to be able to find a way to meet every client’s needs, no matter the budget. I have seen her work late into the night to make something perfect and quite personal for many clients.

    In addition to her creative talents and superior attention to her clients, Jenn runs through every step of an event, planning the smallest details, the things I would never think of. Is there a glass bead somewhere in the plan? The need for a bit of wrapping, a small box, or a bit of wire? Jenn has thought it out and planned for it. Her clients may never notice it, but it will be there. It’s amazing.

    There won’t be any other choice but Belles and Thistles for all of my future events.
