Wessel’s was amazing! We started working with Dave, but then found out a month before the wedding he left the company; so we felt like we were starting from scratch, but Alison, who took Dave’s spot was just as amazing. She made our reception look spectacular, not to mention my bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets and everybody elses looking perfect! In fact, since we got married in a church they don’t always allow flowers up o the altar, and I found last minute we were allowed very few, so I emailed her about a week before our wedding asking her to add some flowers for the altar; I didn’t really give her specifics other than ‘work your make magic,’ and that she did! We were very pleased 🙂

Our wedding flowers were PERFECT! Alison did an amazing job bringing our ideas together. I LOVED everything from our centerpieces, to the bouquets, and even the smaller flower arrangements lining the aisle. Thank you for your professionalism, creativity, and help making our wedding day amazing!

Wessel’s Florist was a dream. Initially, I was working with a florist that moved on from the company and I was a little nervous that whoever took on my wedding wouldn’t understand the vision that the first florist did. Boy, was I wrong. Alison was AMAZING! She was calm, cool, collected and knew exactly what I wanted and what I needed. I loved my flowers, they were so gorgeous. Thank you, Alison for making my venue even more gorgeous than it is with your artwork!

From the consultation to the big day, I couldn’t have been happier with Wessels. Alison took my few requests and transformed them into the most beautiful bouquet! The center pieces were fantastic and all the flowers were still just as lovely the next day. I couldn’t have been more pleased. Thank you so much!!

I had my wedding this past weekend and I loved the flowers that Wessel’s provided. They were very fresh and looked amazing. Also I loved working with the staff. They did an amazing job of incorporating what I wanted along with what they knew would work best for my wedding. I would use them again and recommend them to my friends

Our wedding was this past weekend, and all of our floral arrangements were exactly what I wanted. We worked with Alison and she was extremely helpful in providing ideas and advice for which flowers would provide the soft, romantic feel I wanted for the wedding while being able to work within our budget. She did not push any certain types of flowers on us, like calla lilies or roses, which I experienced when meeting with other florists, and I really appreciated this. She was also extremely easy to work with and talk to, and we felt comfortable working with her right away. Alison also responded to all of my emails in a timely manner, which gave me great peace of mind, as I tend to ask a lot of questions and change my mind! The day of the wedding the flowers were delivered and everything was exactly as I imagined. Wessel’s did a great job and I definitely recommend them to other brides in the Baltimore area!
Affordable and gorgeous, Wessel’s went above and beyond our expectations while being considerate of our budget. Alison was a delight to work with. Neither of us are very knowledgeable about flowers, so having her experience to draw on was a huge help. The flowers were set up beautifully both at the venue and on our cake. We would absolutely recommend this florist!
Alison did an amazing job with my flowers. I ended up having three different types of centerpieces (tall, short, and a cluster), and they came out better than I imagined. She really understood my vision and helped me achieve it. She introduced me to flowers I didn’t know about, but were exactly what I was looking for. She also was great about keeping me in the loop so I was never worried about anything. My mom, who is what I would call a floral aficionado, was enthralled with the results. Alison really helped me turn my ballroom wedding into the garden wedding I wanted (without the heat of being outdoors in July).

They were the perfect florist for us. They were timely, accommodating, and provided beautiful flowers for our wedding.
I was truly happy with everything provided by the Florist. Alison was flexible in meeting me and working with my estimated price. The price was very reasonable and the execution on the actual day was flawless. Everything was just as planned. They were recommended to me and I would highly recommend using this florist to someone else.
Wessels Florist was a pleasure to work with during the long process of my wedding. Alison made sure she contacted the venue, church and coordinated the times for delivery during my wedding day so my flowers were on time. Thanks much for making my job easier in every step of the way.
Working with Alison at Wessel’s was a wonderful experience. We met 3 times in total, and the end result was perfect. Alison helped to create my image, and there were no issues on the day of. Wessel’s delivered flowers to my parents house, to the church, and to the venue without a hitch. If you want a stress-free flower experience for your wedding, Wessel’s is the best! Not to mention that the flowers at my wedding were STUNNING. Highly recommended!!
The staff at Wessel’s was as professional as one would ever want. The quality of the flowers and the beauty of their design was exquisite. I would highly recommend them for any for all services required. Allison was our floral coordinator and her knowledge and professionalism was greatly appreciated. Thank you!
I was beyond thrilled with the flowers at my wedding. Allison did a fantastic job of creating arrangements that I wanted, while also keeping my budget in mind. I am a huge flower fanatic, which means I would be hard to please. With that being said, I was THRILLED when I saw the flowers arrive. It was everything I had dreamed of and more! Allison listened to what I was looking for and found the perfect flower and design to suit all of my needs. Looking back, one of the things that made my day so special was having the best bouquets, centerpieces, etc. Thank you Wessel’s!!!!
Alison at Wessel’s was fantastic to work with throughout the planning process. From the very first meeting, she was extremely helpful and enthusiastic about creating a look for our event. She was able to take my very vague description of what I had in mind and transform it into a beautiful end product. She was very responsive and flexible, even down to last minute schedule changes for the day of the wedding. Everything went smoothly the day of and I could not have asked for more gorgeous flowers!
Alison at Wessel’s was absolutely amazing! She is extremely responsive (as in emails were answered in less than 10 minutes). Our meetings were easy to schedule and she never wasted any time. She was extremely knowledgeable and “got” what we wanted. The flowers at the wedding were beautiful! She did our bouquets, boutonnieres, some corsages for the grandmas and the centerpieces and the flowers on our cake. Everything looked absolutely perfect! People were trying to escape with centerpieces by the end of the night. Would highly recommend her to anyone. She made the flower process so easy. My absolute favorite vendor. Thanks Alison!
Just a quick note to say thanks for all the beautiful flowers, arrangements, and bouquets. Everything was just beautiful!!! I really loved the pillar columns for the ceremony. With the fountain behind them, it really made for an exquisite place for the ceremony.
Again, Alison, thank you for helping to make Alexis’ day simply gorgeous!! You are truly the best!
