Gorgeous and unforgettable flowers

Found Heart & Sola Canada at a wedding show I attended while planning my wedding and fell in love with their flowers immediately. While I initially planned on getting real flowers for my wedding, I was sold on how they would be able to personalize the bouquets since I'd be able to pick the specific colours (down to the shade) and types of flowers I want used. Alissa was amazing to work with and kept me updated with photos as she put my flowers together. All my flowers looked breathtaking on the day, and no one realized they weren't real until I mention it. Cannot thank them enough for making my beautiful flowers and helping us remember our day forever.

Long-lasting and beautiful memories

Alissa was so easy to work with. That's probably the first thing I'd recommend, along with her professionalism, talent, and great communication. I am pretty terrible at picking out colours and themes and such and Alissa was such a great help along the way to guide me towards what I wanted (even though I didn't even know it at the time). The bouquets she arranged were beautiful, and I still have my bridal bouquet in pride of place in a vase in my front hall; my bridesmaids have used their hoops to accent picture walls and as other decor too. So lovely!

Absolutely amazing sola wood florals!

I am so happy I chose Alissa to be my florist for our October wedding! Despite being absolutely swamped with weddings this summer, she met with me and was so careful and thoughtful in her selections of flowers, filler, and colours! I'm terrible at seeing colour combinations in my "mind's eye" but Alissa knew exactly what to do with what guidance I could give her. I am so pleased and every time I look at the bouquet now, I think about how happy I am. We had so many positive comments complimenting the flowers on the day of, and as a bonus, my bridesmaids' hoops are now part of their home decor! They are that gorgeous! Thank you again so much, Alissa, for all that you do!

A Beautiful Keepsake!

Alissa did absolutely amazing work for our wedding! We could easily change or add to our order. It was so helpful to be able to colour match exactly what we needed for our wedding colours, and Alissa was able to work with our vision with ease! As a fairly new and upcoming business, it was a little bit of a wait for responses due to high demand for her work, but it was very easy to work with Alissa in figuring out what we needed and accommodating pickup. I love that we can keep these bouquets for many years to come as a reminder of our beautiful day. The fact that the boutonnieres were magnetic was absolutely fantastic and made for an easy keepsake afterwards for the groom and groomsmen. They look absolutely fabulous in our pictures and we received so many compliments on what a great and unique idea they were! We can't thank Alissa enough for making our wedding absolutely beautiful!

Efficient with beautiful flowers

Alissa was communicative and efficient despite contacting her 6 weeks before my wedding. She also made many adjustments to get the order there on time. Flowers were perfect.

Beautiful Sola Wood Florals

I can鈥檛 thank Alissa enough for creating such beautiful creations for our August wedding!

I came across Heart & Sola by chance well before I knew I would be considering Alissa鈥檚 work for my own wedding and admired her work. As I began our wedding planning, I knew I wanted a bouquet that I could keep and admire forever without worrying about preservations, and eventually found myself on her pages again excited to reach out to her.

With bright colours in mind, meeting with Alissa was exciting and fun as we discussed my vision. She was so friendly and I felt like I was speaking with a friend the whole time who was there to support my ideas without pushing anything on me.

Once Alissa was working on my order, she kept me updated through the flower dying process and arrangements to allow for any changes to be made. Once I saw the photo of the final product I was so amazed by the creation, and blown away once I saw them in person. Finally, seeing the florals alongside my dress and our bridal party - they were perfect.

I have the bouquet displayed in my living room, and it brings me so much joy to see the colours each day. I am so thankful for Alissa鈥檚 hard work on our florals.

Purchased: 1 bridal bouquet, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, 7 boutonnieres, 2 corsages, and some extra loose florals to add to some of our decor.

Thank you so much for creating our beautiful florals. I highly recommend you considering Heart & Sola for your florals.

Photographs beautifully

We hired Heart and Sola because we were doing a 2 part wedding due to Covid. (Small ceremony in 2021 and big reception 2022) Sola flowers seemed like the perfect solution since they are reusable!They photographed beautifully and Alysa painted them to match our colours. We didn't get a lot of process photos until right at the end and some of the filler was a bit more artificial looking than I had planned for, but Alyssa worked with my suggestions and we were pleased with the result. There was a misunderstanding about pick up as we were told we could pick up in Richmond Hill which is near us but then weeks later when it was around the week of our wedding Alyssa said pick up would be in Ayr as she wouldn't be in Richmond Hill. This was quite far from us. Fortunately my husband was able to take some time out of the hectic week and meet her half way for pick up...but this was rather inconvenient and quite close to our wedding deadline.

Gorgeous Custom Flowers

Alissa did an amazing job bringing my vision for my wedding flowers to life. She has you use paint swatches to pick the colour so we were able to match the bouquets exactly to the colour scheme and we're completely obsessed with how they turned out. She shared pictures throughout the process and was open if I had any questions or wanted any changes. I could not have asked for a better experience and I'm so happy that the flowers will last without having to pull the bouquet apart.

After searching for my own wedding florist I discovered sola wood flowers. In order to save money I chose to do my own wedding flowers and discovered no one is really offering an affordable alternative to fresh flowers in the GTA.

If you give me the opprotunity to work with you, I promise to give you advice thats best for you, not me. I also don't push products on clients, I offer my honest opinion and I treat you like a friend.
