I have photographed dozens of weddings and worked with dozens of amazing vendors in Western NY and Buffalo, but there are a few florists that truly stand out to me!
Flowers aren't always necessary, but if you are looking to fill your wedding day with gorgeous florals, these florists are my absolute favorite in the area and I'm so honored to have worked with them!

First up, my wedding day(s) florist...
Flowers by Nature, East Aurora
When my husband and I were planning our wedding in 2019, we reached out to Flowers by Nature and from my first meeting with owner, Cheryl, I was sold! She is so passionate about what she does and is a true expert!
I am putting Flowers by Nature first because of course I am a little bias 😊. This is the only company on the list that I can speak as a client. Cheryl took great care and communication as we planned our pandemic elopement in 2020 and when we planned our full wedding party in 2021. When the pandemic shut everything down, some of the flowers we had picked became unavailable. Fortunately I knew I could put my trust in Flowers by Nature to still make me a stunning bouquet. (Photo above) I was so in love with everything they did, that when it came to the 2021 Wedding party, I said "you have my trust!" and requested a little more color, and got another absolutely stunning bridal bouquet for my wedding day at O'Briens Sleep Hollow in East Aurora.
Outside of being their client myself, I did have the pleasure of photographing a few stunning weddings that hired Flowers by Nature.
William's Florist, West Seneca, NY
William's Florist feels like they have a legacy in Western New York... it could be because I was born and raised in West Seneca, NY and my mother always purchased from William's Florist for her flower needs.
I have had the pleasure of working with William's Florist a few times and they never ever fail to amaze me! I absolutely love the bouquets, backdrops and centerpieces they create.

Beck & Forth Co., Buffalo, NY
I could say sooo much about the magic that Sara of Beck & Forth Co. creates for her clients. You can tell from the moment you meet her, she is so passionate about what she does, which makes a Beck & Forth Co. designed wedding worth it!
I had the pleasure of working with Sara for a wedding this 2022 Wedding Season and I was blown away with what she created for our clients.
The staff of Beck & Forth Co. create a once in a lifetime floral experience for your wedding day with complete event styling. If you are looking for someone to make your floral dreams come true throughout your wedding space... Beck & Forth Co. is your company.
Chamisa Floral, Buffalo, NY
Prior to Marissa and Ben's Hamburg Fall Wedding day, only seen the dried floral trend on instagram. I was so excited to see Marissa's petite dry bouquet and then stunned to see the beautiful wedding backdrop that Chamisa Floral created for their wedding day.
Owner, Jacquelyn is truly an artist at what she does and bring some unique florals to a special day. She has been featured in Buffalo Magazine for her design work. Chamisa Floral is the perfect spot for unique wedding day florals.

Botan Floral, Buffalo, NY
Yet another unique and stunning florist in the City of Buffalo. Sloan of Botan Floral truly creates floral art pieces for their clients.
I had the pleasure of working with Sloan and the Botan team for a styled shoot back in 2020. I feel in love with the bouquets, centerpieces and details they created for us.
Not only do they create unique and stunning pieces for the wedding day, but often create bouquets for various holidays and events... I HIGHLY recommend.
Pretty in Pink Flowers, Buffalo, NY
I HAD to include Pretty in Pink Flowers in this Listicle because I was completely blown away by these bouquets back in September of 2021. Holly of Pretty in Pink Flowers filled Rachel and JP's wedding day at O'Briens Sleep Hollow in East Aurora with soo many flowers, it was gorgeous! I hope to work with this team again soon and see what else they can do!
