Brides are often pleasantly surprised to find that Petals & Leaves’ products and services extend well beyond bouquets and boutonnieres.

From bridal party flowers to centerpieces to styling, chairs, linens and lighting, the Grandview florist does it all. Brides can choose among personalized, custom-curated packages to à la carte products and services.

“A lot of brides go into it not knowing that flowers are just one aspect of creating a theme or achieving a style. “When I say, ‘We can take care of that,’ they are relieved,” says Dee Conrad, owner and floral designer.

Taking care of the details is what Petals & Leaves excels at, says Meghan Greek, wedding and event manager and floral designer. “We approach each wedding as if it were our own,” she says, adding that they are always growing, learning and evolving to bring fresh ideas to the table. “We do everything in our power to make a bride happy. My superpower is taking ideas that a couple has and bringing them to life.”

Getting a handwritten note or positive online review from past clients is gratifying and validates their hard work. “When they see the magic we created, they are so impressed with how we pulled off their dream wedding and exceeded their expectations,” Greek says.

Adds Conrad, “My favorite part is the end result, when everything is finished and it all comes together.”

Their advice for brides is to find what their individual comfort level is. To do that they need to plan ahead, trust their florist, be open-minded and know their budget. “Everything we do is unique to the bride and her budget and venue,” Greek says.

Although Petals & Leaves is happy to accommodate a last-minute elopement, they suggest couples start looking at florists six months to one year prior to their wedding.
