I found Pollen Floral Art via a little old fashioned research, and after seeing owner, Brooke's work around Austin. I was struck by her use of a wide range of flowers in both an organic and contemporary way. We got together for an initial meeting about my wedding several months out from the big day. She was incredibly enthusiastic and willing to put forth a product that would make me happy, even if it didn't reflect her style as much -- I'm not incredibly easy to deal with, as I tend to be quite specific.-Emily B.
However, over the course of several months my ideas and plans for what I wanted our wedding to look like changed vastly. Brooke held on every step of the way and really understood my vision. She made at least one trial piece, and visited with me at our venue twice prior to the wedding.
In the end, Brooke and her husband created the most amazing rehearsal dinner and wedding atmosphere that I could have imagined or asked for. Everyone was blown away by how beautiful and unique the arrangements were. She and her husband worked incredibly hard to ensure our wedding weekend looked and felt spectacular.
I highly recommend Pollen Floral Art for everything from a simple Mother's Day arrangement, to a cocktail party, wedding or fundraiser. She and her husband proved to us that no task is too large for them to design, create and implement, flawlessly. I can't be thankful enough to them for what a beautiful product they put forth, and for how warm and professional they were each step of the way.
Her portfolio is growing by the minute, so I suggest you book her now-- otherwise you might miss out!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Brooke to design and create my wedding on 5/29/11. Brooke was unbelievable to work with. She was attentive, creative, prompt, reliable and most of all outrageously talented! Upon our first meeting she had designed a mini bouquet of flowers I had requested. She was able to offer expert advice and a unique touch. Brooke designed and created a metal and wood chuppah that she assembled for my wedding day. Throughout the entire process, Brooke ceased to amaze me with her creative power mixed with wonderful business etiquette. It is for sure that Pollen Floral Art is as good as it gets!-Ashley G.
-Tracy G.When I got engaged, the first thing I did was research florists (to me, floral arrangements are one of the best things to invest in for a wedding -- they add so much).
The nice thing about shopping around for a florist is it's pretty much a visual decision at first. You look at some portfolio images, and hone in on what you like. I knew instantly I loved Brooke's & Pollen's work. I was addicted to her blog of images -- of fresh, healthy, gorgeous flowers mixed with fun, unique succulents & natural elements. I loved that the most simple arrangements could look so original and full of life. I knew that's exactly what I wanted.
I didn't hesitate to call. I said earlier that shopping around for a florist is visual at first -- but it wasn't just the visuals that sold me. She understood what I was going for at our first meeting and just ran with it. I got married last month and I couldn't be happier about booking Brooke & Pollen Floral Art and working with her from start to finish. Brooke worked with my budget and made my wedding truly magical with her arrangements! I can't say enough good things. I was and still am thrilled (as the flowers will be in my pictures forever)!
I found Brooke and Pollen Floral Art on the internet for my fall wedding last year. Her arrangements were sheer works of art, with bold and creative color schemes. After interviewing her and four other florists, I came to know Brooke as a positive and talented person who was genuinely excited and passionate about working with me to create just the right ambience for our wedding.
Brooke was delightful to work with through our four month wedding planning process and was flexible, encouraging and an attentive listener. She is the consummate professional and lots of fun to work with as well.
The floral art at our November 20th wedding exceeded even our wildest dreams. Brooke simply created a stunning array of arrangements and floral touches that our friends are still commenting on. Her use of modern organic items from nature (rich vibrant blossoms, ferns, seed pods, wasp nests, branches) set the perfect tone for our "green'' modern wedding.
We can not recommend Brooke more highly as a professional, an artist and just as a lovely person with whom to work.
Brooke, from Pollen Floral Art was the florist I chose for my wedding in March 2011. She was recommended to my husband and I by our photographer Suzi. I had done a couple consultations with other florists before we met with her and I was pretty bummed about my options. Then we met her at Starbucks and she began asking questions about us and showing us her work. Not kidding, I became overwhelmed with emotion because it was so refreshing to see how passionate she was about what she does. The more I looked at the arrangements she had done in the past I knew she was my girl. Her work is art. It is creative and well thought out. I gave her my vision and then gave her freedom to do what she wanted. And omg it paid off. My arrangements were perfectly original and memorable. I hear most praises about the flowers and pictures from the guests that attended the wedding. And the people who see the pictures love the flowers. Hands down she is super talented and you can't go wrong with hiring her. My wedding was featured on the Project Wedding blog and I give high credit and thanks to Brooke from Pollen Floral Art and my photographer Suzi from Q Weddings.-Paige K.
