We love how Lynn describes this bride's vision for her wedding flowers, "Refined roadside...AKA English garden gone wild."

The bridal bouquet incorporated blushing tones of lily of the valley, Juliet garden roses, peonies, stock, dusty miller, and flowering dogwood.

The bridesmaids' bouquets had a bolder punch of color with vibrant spray roses, Juliet garden roses, peonies, dahlias, scabiosa, and stock. Lynn says she loved the color scheme—or lack thereof!

A stunning shot of the bride with her bouquet.

The full picture of the gorgeous spectrum of colors used in the wedding flowers—and the bridesmaids' shoes followed suit!

Lynn says, "The centerpieces were low and sprawling displays in recycled glass containers."

The sweet and rustic wedding cake.

Verified Reviews from Real Brides & Grooms

“Pollen was my favorite vendor of our wedding and my favorite person to work with. Our wedding would not have been what it was without her creativity and thoughtfulness.”

“I chose more non-traditional, non-florals for our winter wedding, and Lynn surpassed every expectation. Our guests STILL talk about the ‘plant art’ and about how incredible every artful detail was.”

“The flowers looked so beautiful they made me cry—and I didn’t cry at any other time on my wedding day. Those beautiful flowers just got me!”

“I had several guests tell me they were the most unique and beautiful flowers they’d ever seen at a wedding.”

“When you hire Lynn, you know you’re getting someone who will treat you and your wedding with tons of respect and will work her hardest to make your dream a reality. She takes great pride in her work and it shows.”

“I really liked her naturalistic style and the fact that she was committed to running her business in an eco-friendly manner.”

“Lynn focuses on purchasing local flowers whenever possible and sustainably grown flowers when local blooms aren’t available. She also composts all the stems, leaves, and other floral ‘trash’ created in the process of creating bouquets and arrangements.”

“She was easy to talk to and had fantastic advice and recommendations.”

“Lynn is very personable, and was excellent at guiding us through all the possible flower choices.”

“Pollen was the best thing that happened to my wedding! Other than the marriage part.”

“I am NOT exaggerating when I say that Lynn’s work set the entire tone for our wedding.”

“Lynn most definitely worked with our budget—even coming in under it!!! Gotta love that!”

“The bottom line is that she creates beautiful designs, offers great customer service, and uses ethically-sourced materials as often as possible. I’d use her again in a heartbeat.”
