Rosey & Tony

"Darcy with Le Reve truly surpassed all of my expectations as the florist for our wedding. From the first time we met in consultation, I was struck by Darcy's huge knowledge base, and the vision she helped to create with me. She was very professional and provided me with representative pictures of what we talked about. I met no other florist with such warmth who listened to exactly what my fiancé and I were thinking of for our wedding day. After we agreed to work with Darcy, my satisfaction with her grew by leaps and bounds. Darcy is incredibly responsive, and she addressed any ideas or concerns that I had very quickly. She visited our wedding venue with me to help develop our ideas more. Darcy even offered and agreed to create not only our floral arrangements, but also our lighting for the ceremony and reception. She and I created a gorgeous vision with lanterns and tulle in the dimly lit areas outside. In the weeks leading up to our wedding, Darcy accommodated all of my requests, and made me feel extremely confident in my decisions, and in how things would turn out. Our wedding-day flowers and lights were truly breathtaking. I have never seen such lush, colorful, natural floral arrangements in my life. Our bouquets were jaw dropping as well. For my bridal bouquet, the flowers complimented my dress so well. All of the bouquets, corsages and boutonnières were clean, colorful, and complimented the ladies and men so well. Darcy also helped to create a dramatic effect using branches and orchids for the centerpieces. The whole scene was out of this world. I cannot have imagined using anyone other than Darcy for our wedding-day flowers and lighting. She is a dream!"

Jessica & Larry

"Darcy did the flowers for our September 3 wedding in Waltham and we could not have been more thrilled with the process and the end result. She went far above and beyond our expectations, delivering some of the most gorgeous floral arrangements I have ever seen. She listened to my ideas with an open mind and then presented highly creative concepts that helped evoke the look and atmosphere I envisioned. She is great at communicating efficiently and warmly with a stressed bride, and is truly supportive; she went out of her way to help me with tasks that were not her responsibility, helping me choose the best table linens to coordinate with the table centerpieces, providing floral accents for our menu folds...the list goes on. Darcy is imaginative with her flower choices, suggesting seasonal flowers and plants that the average bear may not know to ask for. The groom and groomsmen's boutonnieres were unusual, too; Darcy cleverly used succulents to create a look that was graceful and more masculine than our bouquets. She also built a gorgeous bower out of weeping beech branches, constructing it in the garden where we had our ceremony. It was the perfect natural backdrop. I can't recommend Darcy highly enough -- she is a bride's dream!"

Rosanne & Sterling

"Darcy is an exceptionally creative and talented artist. Not only did she exceed our expectations as a floral designer, but we also found her to be extremely supportive. She cared as much about the overall aesthetics of our wedding as we did! She brought our idea of a “garden-esque” wedding to life, taking the time to shop for just the right vintage green depression glass vases and silk organza material for the arbor under which we were married! We loved how she presented us with a beautiful photo-gallery of her design ideas for our initial meeting, it gave us a clear picture of how it would all come together! We found her to be highly dependable, quick to respond to questions, and offered great wedding design ideas from the aisle runner to the table linens that would best complement the flowers and dresses. She also provided many resources that were extremely helpful in making our wedding beautiful. No detail was overlooked. From the natural elegance of her floral designs, to the angelic hair wreath of spray roses and adorable handmade paper purse filled with petals for my flower girl, to the detail of her hand-sewn buttons on the beautiful silk ribbon holding the bouquets. She even took special attention to attach sentimental family jewelry to my bridal bouquet on the day of the event. All of this gave our wedding a detailed, high quality, hand-made appeal! Simply put, she will not disappoint!"

Jennifer & Alan

"Darcy was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I could not have asked for more out of the final product! I told her the feeling I wanted to create at our reception… and, within a day or so, she came back with a variety of ideas that captured my vision better than I could have articulated. She made minor adjustments when I asked and offered fabulous suggestions when I was unsure. Not only did my husband and I love the final product, but our guests were incredibly impressed that a "wedding florist" created it. Her use of pumpkins, wood, flowers, and greens went beyond conventional expectations, and I could not recommend Darcy and her team more."

Brandy & Joe

"When I first began interviewing florists for my August wedding, I thought I knew what I wanted. At prior meetings with other floral vendors, I would tell them what I thought I wanted and they essentially "took my order" by pricing it out accordingly without making any suggestions or adding any creative touches. When I found Darcy at Le Reve Floral Design, that all changed. I could tell from our first conversation that things would be different. She asked me about every aspect of the wedding, from the bridesmaid’s dress color, to shoe color, to photo locations, venue description, my favorite colors and flowers, a description of my dress, the tux colors, etc. She wanted to know every detail so that she could better serve my floral needs. When we had our first face to face meeting, she showed me her ideas, which were above and beyond anything I could have imagined. She took my one-dimensional idea and ran with it, transforming my vision into a stunning masterpiece that was everything I wanted but didn’t know existed. The colors she picked were amazing and gave my wedding just the look and feel that I was looking for. Darcy happily answered all of my questions, and was flexible enough to still change anything I wanted. She was even thoughtful enough to bring me back 2 different roses from the market so I could see the colors in person to help with my final decision. On my wedding day, Darcy managed to deliver the flowers slightly ahead of schedule with every bouquet, boutonnière, and corsage individually bagged with each person's name on it to avoid confusion. The flowers were wonderful, and even more beautiful than I could have imagined. I got compliments on the flowers all night long, and the pictures look amazing. I'm so glad I found Darcy at Le Reve Floral Design; she turned my simple idea into something magical and wonderful."

"Le Reve Floral Design exceeded all of my expectations for our wedding! Our flowers were unique, fashionable, and completed the look for my bridesmaids and me. Darcy came up with and designed the best ideas to perfectly match the theme of our wedding. Not only were my flowers absolutely amazing, but also Le Reve was the best vendor that we worked with. From start to finish, everything with them ran so smoothly and they were so dependable."

Jessica & Michael

"All of the flowers for our wedding were done by Darcy Hammer (Le Reve Floral Design), including the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and flowers for the cake. Darcy was such a pleasure to work with and really listened to our vision for the day as well as our budget. She was very helpful with her suggestions of which flowers would best match our color scheme and what would work for the tables and bouquets. Darcy was happy to work with all of our vendors, including coordinating with my friend who made our cake. She took away some of the stress of planning a wedding – I could trust that Darcy would have everything arranged perfectly and on time! The centerpieces were beautiful and we received so many compliments on them. I absolutely loved all of the bouquets she made! They were perfect and exactly what I hoped they would look like. The flowers completed the look we wanted for all of the girls. I have already recommended Darcy to several friends who are planning weddings. Darcy, thank you so much for all of your help making our wedding day beautiful and memorable."

Valerie & Kerry

"Darcy from Le Reve Floral Design did a fantastic job with my wedding flowers - from the bouquets to the centerpieces to the corsages and boutonnières. It was obvious that she spent a lot of time making sure that everything was perfect for me. I wanted simple bouquets and natural centerpieces, and Darcy was able to meet these seemingly modest requests in ways that were more beautiful and elegant than I could ever have imagined. From our first meeting, I knew that I was going to feel comfortable and well taken care of by Darcy, and she proved me right. Everyone who was at the wedding and who has seen the pictures has raved about the beauty of the floral arrangements. The guests, who were lucky enough to take home a centerpiece, have all told me how excited they were to be able to do so. I tried very hard to use as many local artists and businesses as possible in planning my wedding, and I was very happy with the way that everything turned out, including especially my flowers. It was nice to know that not only is Darcy a local florist, but that she also uses many of her own and other locally grown flowers as much as possible in her arrangements and bouquets. I feel confident in recommending Darcy for any of your floral needs, whether they are large or small!"

Michelle & Alan

"For those that need to find a florist, know that Darcy Hammer at Le Reve Floral is the person to go to. I searched a few different Florists before I found Le Reve... I told each florist what I was looking for. We had chosen Fall/Nature for our wedding theme. I thought that in the flower department, I could get away with more because I wasn't looking for pricey flowers. What I was offered by other florists was roses, plain and simple. Sure they wanted to add a few touches of curly willow branches, but it wasn't right. What Le Reve came back with was amazing from the first. Orchids and Amaryllis, ferns and ivy and dusty Miller and berries, along with a beautiful green moss-like flower. I was so excited. As for working with Darcy, she was very friendly and I got along wonderfully with her. She became a great ally for the wedding. She trusted my opinions and in turn I trusted hers. We kept in contact easily through emails. She answered every question and concern that I had. I am extremely grateful to have found her. Thank you Darcy."

Cristine & Gary

"Darcy Hammer was recommended by a friend of mine as being one of the ‘best floral designers around’, so naturally I checked out her gallery online and decided to meet with her. I had a vision of what I wanted for my centerpieces and other bouquets, but what Darcy designed was above and beyond what I imagined. The centerpieces and bouquets were exquisite and added a great depth to our photos. I would highly recommend Le Reve and Darcy to anyone!"

Morgan Little

"Darcy of Le Reve Floral Design did a wonderful job with our wedding flowers. After our initial consult we could tell that she really got the concept and the style of flowers that we were looking for and we had no doubts that the flowers would be beautiful. We got married at our family farm and were looking for a rustic chic vibe. We gave a little guidance on the general feel of the floral arrangements we were looking for but left most of decisions to Darcy and we felt completely comfortable doing so.

The flowers surpassed my expectations: the corsages, the bouquets, and the flower arrangements were all gorgeous, unique, and really fit our wedding setting and style. You can tell that Darcy is an artist- her eye for balance, detail, and color is spot on. We got tons of compliments on the flowers at the wedding and they really added so much to our special day.

Darcy was also a joy to work with from the very beginning. I can’t recommend her enough to future clients."

Leslie Wong

"Aside from her talent and her great eye for detail, we felt that Darcy truly cared about capturing the mood we were trying to create for our wedding day. She consulted us throughout the entire process, listened to our input, respectfully made suggestions where appropriate, and was always mindful of the budget we had set.

Working with Darcy was a great experience. Wedding flowers should be memorable, fun, and reflective of any couple on their big day. I think we were one of the first couples that Darcy worked with and it was clear even then that this was her philosophy. We just celebrated our 10th anniversary and in looking at the pictures, we are still thrilled with how the flowers came out."

Jenni Johnson

"Darcy does the most incredible floral arrangements! She has a great sense of color and composition, each of her arrangements is a work of art (not a surprise, given her background in sculpture). I’ve worked with Darcy on both a professional and personal level. I hired her to create bouquets for photo shoots when I was Head Stylist at Filene's in Boston. She also did the flowers for my brother's wedding last summer. Her sophisticated arrangements always garner rave reviews. Darcy does a fantastic job listening to client ideas and then turning them into gorgeous arrangements that exceed all expectations."

Sarah Monzon

"Darcy is the consummate "stone soup" designer. Faced with my request to embellish a 20-person wedding party and make an old cow barn into a wedding venue on a shoestring budget, she rose to the occasion with natural available materials, judicious use of gorgeous color, and a huge dose of creativity. What resulted was native, poignant, and exquisite beyond my wildest dreams. I will always be grateful to Darcy for her tireless good humor, artistic sensitivity, and practical genius. Celebrating our anniversary this year, people still remembered how amazing – and how “us” the flowers were!"

Ethan Johnson

"To describe the flowers at our wedding as simply amazing, is kind of like describing Mt. Everest as “a day hike”, it’s just not enough. Darcy managed to capture every color and idea we threw at her, from the orange and blue in the groomsmens’ ties, to finding lush white orchids for Jessica’s bouquet. She must have spent days, if not weeks, assembling all the details with nothing forgotten; the unsightly tent poles that were completely wrapped in fresh yellow orchids, the handmade boutonnieres of fiddleheads and even more of those gorgeous orchids. We never could have imagined the one-of-a-kind arrangements uniquely showing off each and every table. We told Darcy some info beforehand, such as Jess’ love of those orchids, that we were headed to Bali for our honeymoon, and some of the colors we were including in our wedding. She took it from there and ran (to the flower market, of course, for the freshest -- and local, if possible -- flowers). We were blown away to say the least. The photos can’t even show just how lush and beautiful the flowers were. In our opinion, the flowers truly made it a spectacular and incredible day. Thanks to Darcy and her team."

Steve Kurland

"Darcy did a great job on the flowers for our wedding! The bouquets, boutonnieres, and table arrangements were all beautiful, fresh, and tastefully done. Perhaps the most challenging piece was a tapestry of flowers that Darcy created. A “blanket” of flowers with our names was placed first on the altar of the outdoor chapel and later at the country club for our reception.
We talked with Darcy about our color scheme, but left most of the work to be done at her discretion and using her best judgement. She came through with flying colors and we received many positive comments about the flowers in general and the flowered tapestry specifically. All of Darcy’s work was done promptly, professionally, and at a reasonable price. I strongly recommend Darcy for her creativity, helpfulness, and professionalism."
