Alicia Goodell with Floral Designs by Alicia was my floral fairy god-mother! She was such a delight to work with! She was fun, professional, attentive, and was super helpful with not just my flowers. I had a unique vision and color scheme and she worked with me to create exactly what I envisioned. She was creative and worked really well with my budget. She gave me 5 proposals and we decided to spluge a bit BUT she even gave me a proposal that was under my budget. The only vendor to do so! On the day, the flowers and floral arrangements were more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. EVERYONE commented on the flowers and all wanted to know who the florist was. BOOK Alicia! I promise you can’t go wrong.

Alicia was the first vendor I selected for my wedding... and my favorite. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is basically THE package... talented, warm, professional... and most important for a budget conscious bride like me, reasonably priced. PROFESSIONALISM (the floral designer herself): As a bride from out of state, I really appreciated her responsiveness and her going out of her way to accommodate my requests. I wanted specific containers for my flowers and Alicia did not hesitate to go out to shop for them before we even had solidified our contract. She worked within my budget and never made me feel like I needed to spend more. She always made me feel like my wedding was the only one she was working on and never made me feel like I was making too many demands despite my many changes and specifications to our concept. She was VERY RESPONSIVE, in terms of time and quality of response, which is so important for any vendor. TALENT (flowers themselves): Everything was beautiful!!! I can't put into words how beautiful the flowers were. She exceeded my imagination and every expectation I had. I got so many compliments on my centerpieces and from older men who I didn't even think would notice. My bridal, my bridesmaids, jr. bm and flower girl bouquets were so beautiful and unique. One of my bridesmaids who is the "27 dresses" type was just gushing about how classic but unique her bouquet was. I wanted a more classic, romantic look and all the arrangements were classic which can sometimes be boring but mine were not. There was an undeniable character in all the arrangements and bouquets that are very Alicia. I don't know what it is but I also see it in all her recent florals. I really couldn't have been happier with my flowers. My only regret is that with everything going on that day, I didn't get to see Alicia to thank her personally. Thanks Alicia! Good luck with everything! I have no doubt that your talent and professionalism take you where ever you want to go!

My floral arrangements and flowers for my wedding party were simply stunning! Alicia took my ideas and created unique designs that were better than I could have ever imagined! We had a destination wedding and Alicia was so great to work with every step of the way. She made sure she understood my vision and used her touch to bring it to life. Saying goodbye to ll my floral arrangements was one of the hardest parts of having a destination wedding, I wanted to take them all home with me! I would recommend Alicia to all brides. She will work with your budget to create magic! Thank you Alicia!

"The most beautiful flowers ever!!! My wedding was absolutely gorgeous thanks to Alicia!! We had never met before, because I live in California, and got married up north, so all of our conversations were done over email, and she captured everything I wanted and exceeded my expectations. I am still in amazement. By far my favorite part of the look of the wedding. Thank you Alicia!!!"

Alicia was amazing, the best florist Id say in the NW. She's extremely talented and has brilliant ideas to work with the theme of your wedding! I had a vintage 20s wedding and she came up with a scheme, that completely resembled the wedding colors and ensemble that I was looking for. The quality was great, better than I had imagined possible. She's prompt, willing to work with your design, and detail oriented. I would highly recommend her services!

Alicia did a fabulous job with the flowers for my wedding! I was very specific (aka picky) about my bouquet, and Alicia exceeded my expectations. She has a lot of creativity and great ideas! Her attention to detail and the fact that she really listened to what I wanted make her so great to work with. I would highly recommend her!

We were absolutely IN LOVE with our wedding florals and she will hit the nail on the head with everything that we wanted. Her service was amazing and communicating with her was easy!
She even made an extra corsage which we ended up needing due to a death in the family. 
Book Floral Designs by Alicia and I assure you that you won't be disappointed!

I am so thankful I booked Alicia for my wedding, all her floral arrangements were positively breathtaking and Pinterest worthy! Her enthusiasm is contagious and her passion is evident in her craft! I believe my wedding flowers are the most beautiful and unique I have ever seen at any wedding I have attended. I never thought I would have loved my flowers so much at my wedding, since prior to meeting Alicia I was not at all that enthused by the flower portion of the wedding planning, but I am in love with how beautiful they turned out (and they photographed beautifully). She was also extremely responsive and respected my budget, she knew exactly which specific flowers would be in season and which would cost more due to out of season. My wedding was outdoors and in the middle of nowhere, but despite this she arrived on time and everything went off without a hitch! I cannot again say how happy and thankful I am I booked Alicia and I would highly highly recommend her, she is truly an amazing person!

We hired Alicia based on the recommendation of our photographer and her other reviews, and we are so glad that we did. We were truly impressed and captivated by the quality and value of Alicia’s work. We had no idea what kind of arrangements that we wanted, but Alicia was incredibly knowledgeable and communicative about all of our options. She helped us pick flowers that were in season and she was very budget conscious. I had no idea what my bouquet would look like until the wedding day, but I couldn’t have been happier with it. She incorporated succulents into most of our arrangements, and even decorated our cake with them (which looked AWESOME and totally Pinterest-worthy). The day of the wedding, she arrived precisely on time with her assistant, and set up her arrangements throughout our entire venue (Silcox Hut at Timberline – she was already familiar with the staff and the layout of the tables, which was incredibly helpful in planning and execution). As the bride, I was busy running around, and when I came upstairs I was blown away by the transformation of our little rustic space. The staff told me that she even helped them rearrange their pre-existing floral bouquets to fit our theme. We got a million compliments all night on her work and on how efficient she had been, and before the evening even ended, our guests were already staking claims on the various arrangements to take home with them. I highly recommend Floral Designs by Alicia (especially to Silcox brides – you definitely need vendors you can rely on!). She was wonderful in every way, and you will not be disappointed.

I wish I could give more stars! Alicia is thee BEST florist in Portland, OR, by far. My bouquet & flower crown was a hit at my wedding! It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! She exceeded my expectations. Right from the beginning when I contacted her for a quote she was professional & punctual with her responses. At first, I emailed her pictures of what I'd like mine & bridesmaids bouquets, flower crown & groom/groomsmen boutonnières to look like. She gave me a respectable timeframe of when my proposed contract would be done & was very prompt. Unfortunately, due to my budget, I couldn't afford all of the beautiful flower choices/arrangements Alicia suggested. So, Alicia was kind enough to modify my floral arrangements & work within my budget. I had to change my bridesmaids bouquets to sunflowers & it worked out PERFECTLY!!! Ironically, it was my late grandfathers favorite flowers, so I knew it was meant to be changed & he was with me on my special day. It made a lot of my family tear when they saw the bouquets. It was very sentimental for me. My wedding was in October & she matched all of the flowers to a fall wedding. I would highly recommend, Alicia! She was a pleasure to work with!
