From the beginning of wedding planning, Sally was our first (and only!) choice as a florist. Just looking through her website and Instagram, we knew that she would be absolutely the perfect person to work with. Now we can say with complete confidence that there is 100% no other team that we would have rather worked with. At our first meeting, we discussed the overall flower ideas we had for the wedding and she completely understood the look I was trying to achieve. Over the course of wedding planning, she was consistent about checking in to make sure that everything we had initially discussed was still what we wanted to do day-of. She was always quick to respond to emails (when needed) and was happy to discuss anything and everything wedding-planning related. She is truly kind and passionate about her work and day-of, it was clear that her instinct and skill could not be matched. One of the most exciting things Sally did for us was at our reception. There is a portion of the room that can be a little awkward if dealt with incorrectly (a stage that doesn’t have a closing curtain!). However, right away at our first meeting, Sally presented me with an idea to fill the front of the stage with candles and a garland that spanned the length of the stage. Even though she hadn’t done it before, we knew it would be beautiful. Day-of, to our surprise, Sally and her team went SO above and beyond and provided us with more than we could have asked for by setting up nearly double the number of candles. It was so moving to see her and her team work so hard to surprise us with the most beautiful display and we could not be more grateful for all their work. We also need to make sure that her team gets recognition too! Courtney was there right by her side day-of and worked tirelessly to make sure that everything was perfect (even helping get the boutonnieres pinned on the guys just right)! She was there at the end of the night and made sure that even when things didn’t go exactly as planned, that they were still taken care of the way we wanted. Not only did Milwaukee Flower Co. come highly reviewed by other vendors we worked with, but they will now be highly reviewed by us and everyone involved in our wedding. We would never hesitate to hire Sally again

How do I begin to explain how fantastic Sally is? How do you thank someone who did things you didn’t even know where meant to be done? It’s been 3 months since our wedding and I am still hearing from guests how gorgeous, warm, and perfect our wedding was. Which explains exactly what working with Sally is like. From our first phone conversation to her walking into the bridal suite with my flowers, everything was better than I could have ever imagined. She was able to translate all the ideas I had and made our wedding day exactly as we dreamed. She’s kind, incredibly helpful, and she knows EVERYTHING there is to know about weddings. Sally helped us think about every detail, large and small. She loves what she does and it clearly comes through in her work. And I haven’t even mentioned her flowers!!! When I saw my bouquet, I was speechless. It was exactly what I wanted. She transformed our venue into a warm and intimate space accented by the gorgeous arch she designed for our ceremony. Our wedding day was a dream come our and we owe it to Sally. She’s the best!

I cannot say enough great things about Milwaukee Flower Company! Sally truly brought my vision to life and exceeded my expectations on every front. From the amazing bridal bouquet, to the greenery garland, table centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnières, flower girl crown, etc. everything was JUST perfect! Sally and team truly went above and beyond to make the day amazing. Milwaukee Flower Company was recommended to me by friends, and I am so happy I chose to work with Sally. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Milwaukee Flower Company!
- Ashley + Michael 2018
Sally and Courtney from Milwaukee Flower Company went above and beyond for our wedding. Sally was apart of every aspect of our wedding decor from to linens to the salt and pepper shakers, she even helped me with my day of timeline! To say that Milwaukee Flower Co. goes above and beyond is an understatement. The best part of the night was getting to see our vision become a reality. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding. Thank you Milwaukee Flower Company for exceeding our expectations!
- Ava + Vince 2018
Sally was hands down my favorite wedding vendor. Her designs are stunning and modern and breathtaking--take a look at her instagram and see for yourself! We got married at the Milwaukee Art Museum and Sally's flowers/designs brought the space to life. I can't wait to get the pictures back and relive the magic of her flowers!
- Caroline + Ricky 2018
Sally and her team are incredible! Sally is a true artistic talent as well as a genuine, kind and intuitive person. In other words, she is the ultimate addition to your wedding day team! Sally was the first and only florist that I spoke to because I knew, from our very first phone call, that her patient and friendly demeanor along with her ability to bring our vision to life, was the perfect match for my husband and I! Sally was not only our florist, but turned out to be my sounding board for many of my ideas along the way as well as logistical planning as we got close to the big day. Her experience and professionalism was invaluable throughout the planing process! Working with Sally was a true pleasure, and being surrounded by her romantic and whimsical florals on our wedding day made me so genuinely happy. Thank you Milwaukee Flower Company!
- Liz + Mike 2018
Milwaukee Flower Company creates art—not centerpieces, bouquets and corsages. Oh my goodness. Could anyone ask for a better floral company? Sally and her team were absolutely phenomenal and truly got to know us as a couple! From our initial phone call to our wedding day their process and execution was FLAWLESS. I cannot recommend their services enough!
- Kimberly + Brock, 2018
Sally is the greatest addition to a wedding team that you could ever ask for. She is incredibly thoughtful and an unparalleled artist. We booked Sally a little less than a year before our date, and from our very first conversation, we were confident that she could accomplish our dream florals - natural, elegant, romantic, and modern. She kept our budget in mind and helpfully laid out our options. Her professionalism and promptness stood out in the wedding industry, and we were also met with kindness and warmth. When our big day came along, all the florals were perfect, and she even surprised us with blooms on our cake. If you are considering working with Sally, do not hesitate and book with her NOW!
- Karina + Max, 2018
I am writing a LONG overdue thank you to you and your team for making Mike and I's day so incredibly special. Regardless, I didn't want to let all time pass without expressing my sincerest gratitude for making our day run so smoothly.
The amount of details that go into planning a wedding are monumental but you and your team made everything so easy and seamless. From the coordination of the flowers to arranging the pickup of our belongings was flawless. Mike and I, along with our families could not be more thankful for the way your team handle wedding day and the days leading up to it with such grace and beauty. Not to mention how simply stunning our venue looked with your beautiful floral arrangements.
Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for creating a day I only dreamed of. Your team is truly extraordinary and I wish you the best as you continue to change the lives of the brides you work with. Again, I am truly sorry for this delayed thank you but please know I cherish everything you did to make our day so special!
- Laura + Mike, 2017
I am so, so happy that we booked Milwaukee Flower Co. for our wedding day. I wasn’t spending a fortune on flowers, but Sally never made me feel lesser because of it. We only ever talked on the phone prior to my wedding day, and yet even without meeting in person, she still completely understood the vibe that we were going for. The florals that day were spot-on – so beautiful! I was absolutely blown away! We got so many compliments on the bouquets, on my floral hairpiece (perfection!) and on the stunning floral backdrop that she created. Sally is an amazing artist. Highly recommended!
- Jordan B, 2017
My husband and I absolutely love flowers, so we knew florals were going to play an important part in our wedding. Recommended by a close friend, I met with Sally and quickly realized she is THE BEST. From a business and planning side, she is responsive, thorough and super organized. An incredible value. From a craft side, her talents are almost indescribable. She listened to my vision and my budget and came up with a plan that turned my dreams into a reality. I simply loved planning with her! A few days before the wedding, she sent me a few sneak peek photos of a few blooms... my jaw-dropped. If the flowers were this stunning on their own, I couldn't even imagine what they'd look like as part of an inspired display. Well, when I walked into the wedding venue I am not lying when I say I lost my breath. Each piece, from table centerpieces to table displays and ceremony decor, were so beautiful and inspired. The shape, texture and color gave our wedding so much character and life. She has a unique style that doesn't feel traditional or boring -- so INSPIRED. I will forever be grateful to Sally for the beauty she brought to our day and the ease of working with her. And her work is completely a reflection of her personality, too - such a lovely, kind and authentic friend. Take a look at Sally's portfolio, you are sure to be blown away!
- Carolyn K, 2017
There aren’t enough words to describe how awesome Sally and her team are. Knowing near-nothing about flowers besides for a few pictures of things I liked, Sally guided us through the entire planning process seamlessly. She didn’t mind our frequent questions or concerns, and rather went above and beyond to make us comfortable with the way that everything looked and felt. We could not have been happier with the way our day looked thanks to Milwaukee Flower Company!
- Rachel & Pat, 2017
Our florals for our wedding day were so incredibly beautiful! Sally was so great to work with - she took our vision and implemented it perfectly! We not only had our bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages designed by Milwaukee Flower Company, but we also asked Sally to create a floral backdrop for our ceremony as well as suspended greenery above our head table and they added such beauty and a little bit of drama! In addition to the above items, I opted for a flower crown over a veil because we had a rooftop ceremony and I was afraid of the veil blowing around. Sally created a beautiful headpiece for myself as well as my three nieces who were my flower girls. I would use Milwaukee Flower Company over in a heartbeat! Thank you, Sally, for sharing your talent and passion and making our day that much more beautiful!
- Amanda, 2017
Hands down the very best! I cannot say enough good things about Sally and her crew at Milwaukee Flower Co. I loved working with Sally from the first day I met her. She is beyond creative when constructing her beautiful floral masterpieces. We got married in the Milwaukee Art Museum and the flowers were the most lovely works of art in the whole place! The flowers were a big part of our wedding celebration and I could not have been happier! I only wish I could have Sally's creations every day of the year!
- Laura, 2017
I have done nothing but absolutely rave about Sally. From our very first interaction on the phone, I knew that she just got it. She was sweet and friendly, while also giving me her expert opinion right away. After telling her a bit about us, our venues, and the feel we were going for, she just knew. Every suggestion she made, throughout the entire process, was spot on. We trusted her completely and the final product was incredible! Sally is an amazing designer and a fabulous person. She keeps only the best team around her and clearly does an excellent job leading the charge. Our wedding, as well as our lives, have been made better by knowing Sally. I could not recommend her enough!
- Alana, 2017
Sally did an amazing job with our flowers. She worked within our budget and did beautiful work with the ideas we gave her. Based on her previous work, we opted to give her a lot of creative freedom, and we have zero regrets about doing that. She included a few types of blooms and greenery that we specifically asked for and went from there. She even helped us out last minute when we discovered that our space was not going to be able to provide some of the decorations we thought they had. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, and have even given her info to a few family members and friends already.
- Jen, 2017
WOW! Sally and her crew are so passionate about what they do and it defiantly shows in her work. Her blooms are perfection and the eye she has for what she does it talent in its truest form. She is so easy to communicate with. Sally even went the extra mile when our venue refused to let us throw confetti and drove it all the way to where we were taking pictures. It turned out to be one of our favorite shots and it's all because of her. I would wholeheartedly recommend Milwaukee Flower Co for all of your flower needs. She simply rocks!
- Kasey, 2017
Sally is hands down the absolute best. Our flowers were so beautiful, I can still hardly believe it. Sally and her team were so wonderful to work with from start to finish and I trusted her completely to bring our vision to life. We had a fantastic experience and would recommend her to absolutely anyone!
- Jessie, 2017
I can't even begin to put into words how amazing Sally & her team are! They took all of my visions (and theirs!) and combined them to make our wedding the most breathtakingly beautiful fairy tale I have ever seen! Sally's something truly special! Her passion for what she does is incredible! The details that she brought to life were gorgeous! My husband and I, along with our bridal party, friends & family were blown away with how stunning every single detail was! It doesn't stop there though. Sally helped provide the best advice & was the best listener throughout the whole process! I can truly say I would not have changed a thing! Sally is the BEST of the BEST!!! I wish I could get married every day so that we could continue to create amazingness together!!!!
- Marisa, 2017
Sally at Milwaukee Flower Company was the best! I worked with her for my recent New Year's Eve wedding and was totally thrilled with the results. She was very easy going and easy to work with. She took great care to understand what I was looking for and came up with such creative and awesome options for my budget. She let me share what I wanted and gave helpful suggestions, totally improving upon and enhancing my vision! She came up with great bouquets for me and bridesmaids, super cool flower bracelets for my mom and ring bearer, gorgeous garlands and center pieces. I got so many compliments on our flowers and they fit perfectly with our event. I happily recommend Sally and Milwaukee Flower Co. to everyone!
- Molly W, 2017
Sally was absolutely amazing. She totally understood my vision during planning and executed it perfectly. She was professional, kind but also knows how to get stuff done. She eased so much of my anxiety during planning. Her flower arrangements were just beautiful and if you want greenery, Sally is your girl!
- Kelsey S, 2017
I worked with Sally for my wedding last month, and could not be happier with the floral work she provided for us! By today's standards, my wedding was relatively small (100 people), and had an equally small budget. But, at no point did Sally make me feel like my wedding was any less important because I had a small budget. Instead, she emphasized how much she enjoyed working on smaller, more intimate wedding ceremonies, and was more than able to work within my budget. She listened to my vision for the big day, and had plenty of ideas for our flowers! Leading up to the wedding, she was very easy to communicate with. And when the big day came, I could not have been happier with my bouquet, and the decorations for the venue! Everything was precisely what we had envisioned and discussed, and I got so many compliments on my flowers! If I ever have another event that I need flowers for, I would absolutely work with Sally again!
- Dani S, 2016
Sally is incredible and I highly recommend working with her! I know very little about flowers, other than that they're pretty and I wanted local, seasonal ones, so describing anything I wanted to a florist would have been really difficult. Luckily, I showed Sally my Pinterest board, my & the bridesmaids' dresses, and talked about the venue (Villa Terrace) and she nailed the look I only-sort-of knew I wanted. I'm naturally skeptical and with our wedding was obviously nervous about *everything* but even the details I wasn't so sure about turned out to be awesome! The flowers coordinated perfectly with the bridesmaid dresses she had only seen online, the vases were perfect matched to the venue, our moms loved their flower 'bracelets', and the flower girl's crown was a perfect touch (even if she only wore it for 30 minutes!). It was also super critical to have a solid level of trust with all of our vendors since we were planning the wedding from 700+ miles away and didn't really have anyone coordinating in Milwaukee. After talking to Sally on the phone and emailing a bit (and scouting her website & Instagram!), I felt totally confident in her style, choices, and ease to work with. I also really appreciated that she didn't try to oversell us on anything. We added a couple of things throughout the process, but actually eliminated (or she recommended against) some decor items when we toured the venue together. It's clear she cares more about giving you a great event than making a few extra bucks off you.
- Kimberly E, 2016
If you're looking for the sweetest, most creative and fun florist to work with, you've just found her. Sally was such a sweetheart throughout the entire planning process. Each time we spoke I felt as though I was chatting with an old friend. She was very honest with me when it came to what flowers would and would not go well together, ones that were in season and ones that weren't, and was open to any silly question I had. Sally always responded in a timely manner and helped calm me down when I had mini panic attacks about my decor and whether or not I had enough centerpieces. I gave Sally some general ideas and direction for what I wanted and let her fill in the rest. When the day came and I saw the gorgeous work she had done I just about started to cry. Every single detail was everything I wanted and more. She took care of explaining to the venue staff what needed to go where and even took the time to hang out with me for a bit and meet my mom. It was very special to me to have someone that both myself and Ryan loved, someone who took the time to make you feel special, and to really connect with. I couldn't have loved my flowers or Sally more! Courtney was amazing as well!! Total sweetheart!
- Toni J, 2016
I greatly recommend Milwaukee Flower Company - Sally's creativity is unmatched. She uses flowers, vegetables and herbs in our table arrangements which garner compliments all the time! Her flexibility and openness means a tailor-made look to compliment our decor. Sally's dedication sets her apart from other vendors, she always goes the extra mile to make Corazon look beautiful.
- Wendy and George Mireles, Cafe Corazon (Owners)
I Highly HIGHLY recommend Milwaukee Flower Co!! It was like Sally crawled in my head and knew EXACTLY what I wanted. My flowers were perfection and didn't break the budget. What more could a girl ask for?!
- Sepideh Trotter
This winter, I have been enjoying a weekly home delivery of flowers from Milwaukee Flower Company. I told Sally to "surprise me, and she never fails to create a delicious bouquet. For the same amount I was spending at the store on flowers every week, I now have flowers that are fresh, long lasting, and, most importantly, created with Sally's artistic flair. What a brilliant idea!
- Nancy Morris
Sally is an excellent florist and wedding coordinator. I am very confident that I would not have been happier with anyone else. As a florist, she is a one woman show which I love. Not only do I prefer to support local, independent businesses but also, I loved the one on one attention I received from Sally. I had some idea of what I wanted but I am not artsy, creative or particularly crazy about flowers in general. I had several different ideas in my head and she sat down with me, several times, and helped me organize my ideas. She asked questions, listened to my thoughts and put it all into a visual concept my brain could comprehend. My ideas changed, my budget fluctuated, my interest in the whole “flower” thing swayed and she worked with all of that, with incredible patience. I never felt pressured to do anything I didn’t want to or to spend more than I could, she was very open to working within my budget. Mostly though, she helped me to figure out exactly what I wanted by arranging numerous meetings, emails and phone conversations. Sally went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the ultimate outcome. The flowers for my wedding were amazing and they were EXACTLY what I wanted. She is truly talented and has an eye for making flowers look like a work of art! I really don’t think I would have gotten this much one on one with a commercial flower shop. I can’t say enough positive things about Sally Vander Wyst!
We hired Sally a little late in the game to be our day-of “coordinator”. We didn’t want to deal with figuring out the logistics of everything or having to tell people what to do. Sally took the job as seriously as if it was her own wedding. I mean it. She was so incredibly organized and on top of every single aspect of getting married, not just the “day-of” stuff. We would have been lost without her. She brought things to our attention we never would have thought of. She made lists and timelines and gave us “to-do’s” and set up regular meetings to go over everything. She went far above and beyond her job as a day-of coordinator. Sally made sure we had ALL of the details taken care of. When it came to the rehearsal and wedding day, she was calm, patient and professional but assertive enough to make everything happen the way it was supposed to. She took on a huge responsibility and because of Sally, our wedding went without any glitches. We know it would not have been nearly as organized or complete without her assistance.
We highly, highly recommend Sally Vander Wyst for your floral and wedding planning needs! She is incredibly talented, extremely organized, easy to talk to and takes her job very seriously. She will go above and beyond what you are paying her for to make sure everything turns out the way you want it to.
- Kerrie Landmann
Best vendor we used for our wedding! The design team at Milwaukee Flower Company is absolutely amazing. I had complete confidence in simply describing the look and colors we wanted to incorporate in our wedding, and then letting Courtney and Sally run with their creativity. They can bring to life a vision even better than you can imagine! Courtney was our designer and her work is stunning, unique, and seriously one-of-a-kind. If you're looking for flowers that look straight out of a magazine, the gals at Milwaukee Flower Company are who you need.
MFC also works with local vendors to ensure their product is of top quality and their business supports their community. They have a huge passion for what they do and their designs reflect that!
- Kim Nochi, 2015
Simply put, Sally is an expert. The flowers looked absolutely incredible! She took all of my visions and mashed them together - she truly has extraordinary talent! Sally was excellent to work with and very attentive to my needs. I can't recommend her more highly.
- Ashley Ludowissi, 2015
Amazing vendor !!! Will work with your budget and Sally has amazing ides to offer as well. My flowers were gorgeous and exactly what I wanted, sally is easy to work with as well!
