What Clients are Saying About Us

“Of all the vendors I worked with for my wedding, Ellen was notably the most professional — as in: pleasant, attentive, and accommodating; prompt replies, great records, reliable follow-up, helpful check-ins. And when you’re at the wire, trust me, you will appreciate all that SO much. Besides her professionalism, the quality of her work speaks for itself. She created bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres we were proud to carry, and sad not to be able to keep forever.  Lovely — both Ellen and her florals.”

“How does one compliment an outdoor wedding that already had a lush amount of trees and scenery? Answer is: Arm yourself with the help of Ellen. This talented lady is NO JOKE! All bridal magazines, books, and wedding consultants say do not skimp on flowers…I repeat…do not skimp on flowers. Ellen is just amazing. Plain and simple. You cannot go wrong with her by your side. She’s professional, reasonable, and deserves every cent you spend on her designs. As you go wedding shopping, you’ll meet alot of pushy (even snobby) wedding people that will push you towards things you don’t want to do. Ellen doesn’t do that. She actually asks you want you want! How about that? She is kind, generous, and alot of fun to be around. Our consults lasted longer than planned because I was having such a good time with her. Prior to the wedding, I wasn’t a huge flower person, but after meeting Ellen, I appreciate them more. That’s when you know you found someone good. Not only did she make the wedding downright crazy beautiful, she made me a fan of flowers. I now have a little bamboo garden going on in our balcony! Ellen – when I open up a bigger salon- you’re doing the arrangements. =)  LOVE THIS LADY!”

“Ellen was a dream to work with and her arrangements were gorgeous. I had a company event that needed 8 table arrangements as well as 1 lg focal arrangement. I gave her the flower I wanted to use and she worked around the description of the space and event to make arrangements that filled the space with just the perfect touch. I had everyone clambering over each other to take one home. Thanks to Ellen everything came together even though I gave her less than a week to prepare. Your work is a work of art….THANKS!”

“I wasn’t really excited about flowers for my wedding until I saw the Gingerleaf Floral website and I realized that my flowers didn’t have to be boring stereotypical wedding flowers. And I was even more excited after meeting with Ellen. She took our very vague ideas and created a unique, beautiful look that perfectly suited our style. Ellen is not a florist – she is an artist who works in the medium of flowers (and other materials too). The centerpieces, bouquets, and altar piece were absolutely perfect, and Ellen was a pleasure to work with throughout the process.”

“We receive flowers from Gingerleaf Floral at work every week. Ellen is an amazing florist with an original design customized for us each week. She is so creative. We always look forward to seeing what she delivers since each arrangement is very different and unique. The flowers and Ellen’s designs are really special and many of our clients have commented how much they like them too. Great work … thank you! You help make us look good for our community.”
