Dear Jen and the Fleur de Lys Team,
Thank you all so much for the beautiful floral vision you brought to our special day. WE received so many compliments about your flower choices, color, and arrangements. You helped make our wedding day truly unforgettable. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Kaitlin and Zach Vernon
I wanted to write this to you right after the wedding but life was just so busy! So now here it is 2 ½ months later and I am just getting to it but better late than never! I just wanted to thank you so much for your beautiful floral artistry and talent that you so generously bestowed on us, almost at the last minute, for Kelly and Stephen’s wedding in NYC. The bouquets and table decorations for the reception were stunning and Kelly’s bouquet was so heavenly fragrant just as you promised it would be! Your warm and gracious welcome to our family in June at your shop assured me that you were the right person for the wedding. Thank you again for making their special day so beautiful and memorable. God Bless. Karen Schultz (Mother of the Bride)
Jen and Everyone at Fleur de Lys,
I still remember the day I found you at the Bridal Show. I was so excited and knew our wedding day would be beyond beautiful thanks to you. We are so grateful for not only the amazing flowers and centerpieces, but for all the extra help decorating the chapel and for your advice along the way., You were a complete pleasure to work with and I never had any doubts that the day would go off without any issues. That is all thanks to you. All our Love, Talia and Mike Bazas
I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for the exceptional experience we had with our wedding floral arrangements. EVERY SINGLE PIECE was beyond our expectation, and it achieved what I had hoped: luxurious, eye catching and elegant ambiance. Equally important as the final product was, the level of customer service and professional talent, apparent in all of our meetings or communication from the start. Thank you and you your team. You have customers for life and we are happily recommending you. Best, Amy Savage & Stan Patterson

*I used Fleur de Lys for my December wedding, and they did a fabulous job of turning my winter white vision into reality.
Fleur de Lys was one of three florists with whom I met in the planning stage of my wedding. What I really liked about Fleur de Lys (and that I was able to sense from our initial appointment) was that the owner, Jennifer, is a grounded business woman who has her act together. She is outgoing and spunky, and I liked her organization and drive.
In Fleur de Lys' showroom, they have a meeting area set with a table and books, and when our initial meeting began, Jennifer had a list of questions for me and was well prepared for what I needed to ask her, too. This is what I WOULD have expected, but after meeting with two other florists who were somewhat scatterbrained, I didn't know what to expect anymore! We went over estimated pricing, and it was enough to make me feel comfortable to book or not. Needless to say, our initial meeting sealed the deal, both due to Jennifer and Fleur de Lys' professionalism and their pure talent/floral work.
Closer to my wedding date, I had another meeting, a loose floral consultation. It was at that time I met with Alex from Fleur de Lys (also fantastic) and walked her through my colors and specific flower choices since I changed them after my initial meeting with Jennifer.
Then, a few weeks later, I had yet another meeting with Alex and Jorge where I saw mock-up arrangements. I was happy that this was included in Fleur de Lys' services because other florists wanted to charge for this. It was good to see the mock-ups because we needed to tweak them to be more white with less greenery to be exactly what I had in mind. We were now 100% on the same page. In addition, this mock-up meeting was great because it made me realize that I wanted my tall arrangements to sit in low bowls on top of the vases so that one doesn't see the stems. Although this was more expensive, it was definitely worth it. Seeing mock-ups was an essential part of my satisfaction, and it tremendously put my mind at ease for our wedding day.
On our wedding day itself, everything arrived on time and we had no problems at all. When you hire the right vendors, such a thing shouldn't even be on your mind on your wedding day, and I knew I had done so with Fleur de Lys. The ballroom looked spectacular and I wouldn't have changed a thing or asked for anything more. Thank you! Alexis & Vicktor
*I CANNOT speak highly enough of Alex, Jen, and the rest of the team at Fleur de Lys. Right from the start, my husband and I could see that these ladies truly cared about their work - and our wedding. They were professional, personable, and helped us with all our needs - even from across the country (we lived in San Diego while planning our East Coast nuptials). On the day of our wedding, I expected the flowers to be beautiful, but was blown away at how stunning the arrangements truly were. They are by far the best at what they do and I would highly recommend their services to anyone! Chantal
*We cannot recommend Fleur de Lys highly enough. From the first meeting to the final setup on our wedding day, Jennifer and her team took the time to listen to our ideas, offer suggestions and feedback, and made us feel comfortable, excited about the process, and certain that they truly understood our vision and the look and feeling that we hoped to achieve. We had a very complicated wedding, with both a Hindu and Jewish ceremony taking place on the same day. Though this required two totally different set-ups in different color schemes, Jennifer and her team were excited about the blending of our cultures and encouraged us to pursue the hopes and ideas we had about our wedding day. They were never overwhelmed or stressed by our questions, but rather, rose the to challenge in a way that far exceeded any expectation we could have had. Not only did they help to make our wedding day dreams become a reality, they actually helped us to discover and define what those dreams were along the way. They truly took the time to get to know us as a couple, as well as our families and cultures. Walking into the ceremony spaces on the day of our wedding literally took our breath away--both times! We were honestly blown away and so moved by what Fleur de Lys was able to accomplish for us. They completely transformed the space from a beautiful, bright Hindu Mandap covered in garlands and flower petals to a gorgeous, calm, tranquil Jewish Chuppah with blooming greenery, gauzy white fabric, ethereal uplighting and my father's Tallit. Both setups felt, in a word, magical, and our guests could not stop talking about how they had never seen such an artistic approach to either ceremony setup.
From there, Jennifer and her team also filled our reception spaces with eye-catching, creative centerpieces and displays. They listened to all of our requests and created unusual arrangements that were exactly what we had hoped for. Throughout the whole process, the entire staff of Fleur de Lys were truly a joy to work with. They are funny, compassionate, thoughtful people who will truly make your day one of a kind. We feel so fortunate to have had to the opportunity to work with such genuine artists, and such truly wonderful people. We will be recommending Fleur de Lys to anyone planning any kind of event, from a grand wedding to a simple surprise weeknight bouquet, and we will certainly continue to use them for all of our floral and decorating needs. We are so grateful to Jennifer and her staff for giving us such beautiful memories!

Jennifer and her team at Fleur de Lys are absolutely phenomenal! From the moment you walk through their door you instantly feel inspired. Jennifer, Alex and Jorge go above and beyond for their clients and never fail to exceed expectations; their creativity truly astounds me. I feel so honored to have had the most gorgeous, artistic floral at my wedding, all thanks to their continuous hard work and stunning design. Christine Brush (Director of Weddings New Haven Lawn Club)
Fleur de Lys did an amazing job on the flowers for my September 2011 wedding....everything was better than I could have even imagined. The flowers, from the bouquets and boutonnieres to the ceremony flowers to the centerpieces, were beyond perfect...definitely worth the price. Jen and Alex were so personable and easy to work with; I had definitely had difficulty articulating my vision, but they still made it come to life. I highly recommend Fleur de Lys!
Liz and Milton
Jennifer and Alex did a wonderful job for our wedding, despite the fact that in the week leading up to it, they had no electricity because of Hurricane Irene and had to throw all their flowers out. No matter -- they spent the week working out of their distributor, with their power finally coming on a few days beforehand. Our flowers were truly beautiful and exactly what we wanted. They were delivered with care and everyone oooed and aahed over them. I can't wait to see more of our professional photos because the day of everything is such a blur that I want to enjoy looking at them again. They took every note and comment my husband and I said and incorporated everything we wanted. We were thrilled, and beyond happy to support a New Haven business. Kathleen and Carlos
