"I cannot speak more highly of my experience working with Jill and her team at Lace & Birch in Hamilton for my wedding. From the first time I had reached out Jill was extremely responsive, professional and highly knowledgeable. She took the time to understand our budget and vision and she was transparent throughout the entire process. Each time I spoke with Jill leading up to our wedding day it made me more excited! Seeing Jills work prior to our wedding, allowed me to put full trust in her and provide her the opportunity have creative freedom. We were truly blown away by her work, and the care and detail she puts it to everything she does is unmatched. Jill is the most kind and caring person and totally went above and beyond on our wedding day. Highly recommend working with this team if you’re looking for a creative and personal experience for your wedding!!"

"Jill. A literal flower angel. Jill was recommended to me by my photographer (Giulia Moltisanti) and I am incredibly thankful she suggested her! Within minutes she saw my vision and was exited about the same things I was (dreamy florals, bold colours, and loving carnations despite their bad reputation). She worked us through postponements and was so much more than a wedding florist. She really helped with the entire vision I had for the space - helping me decide on linens, candles, and how many vases needed to be on each table. She offered advice when I needed it and put my mind at ease when I couldn't make a decision. On top of being an absolute gem of a human, Jill put together some of the most STUNNING wedding flowers arrangements I've ever seen in my life. I remember walking out of our venue and my husband looked at me and said "It's exactly what you described!" And honestly, that was because of Jill. People couldn't stop talking about the hanging installation and the colours of the wedding flowers were beyond perfect. I actually miss working with her. I wasn't originally going to preserve my flowers, but was so obsessed with them that I paid a late fee and extra for shipping, and got them framed to keep forever. Jill, thank you for everything you did for us. We are forever grateful."

"The owner Jill is absolutely amazing! She is incredibly kind, professional and very responsive! My wedding flowers were absolutely stunning, my wedding bouquets and flower arrangements turned out better than I expected. From just one inspiration picture I showed her at the very beginning, she nailed my vision! Jill actually went out of her way and came to find me below leaving to trim my flowers as she knew I was planning on getting them preserved. If you're looking for a stress-free floral experience when planning a wedding I highly recommend Jill!"
"Lace and Birch and the Owner Jill were one of the highlights of my wedding flowers process and day. My eyes lit up when I saw my wedding bouquets and all the other arrangements for my wedding day, Jill absolutely knocked my vision out of the park. I came to Jill with a vision of a moody, intimate all dried floral wedding design with subtle pops of fresh florals. I had a mismatch of ideas that I needed to refine and boy did she deliver. My interactions with her from first email, to zoom calls to wedding day were fabulous. She is kind, accommodating, adaptable and so talented. My whole family fell in love with her come the day of the wedding when they got to meet her, and they understood why I continuously raved about her, before the flowers had even arrived! Could not recommend her or her shop enough for wedding flowers or any of your floral needs!"
"Jill is a professional and just the kindest human. I hired Jill for our original wedding date in August 2021 and when we had to reschedule due to the pandemic, she was more than accommodating. She is quick to respond and beyond organized. She made the entire wedding process incredibly easy because I never had to worry about wedding flowers and she gave me so many helpful suggestions and opinions about the rest of my decor. The florals were more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. Her and her husband were on site the day of and setup was quick and painless. I would recommend Jill to anyone planning a wedding or event.
I also recommend you check out her shop - it's adorable and has a great selection of florals, house plants and locally made gifts!"

"There are not enough words to describe the positive experience we had with Jill! Our wedding was in July, though planning was a bit of a long haul due to COVID. Jill was incredibly approachable, accommodating, and flexible during the planning process. When last minute adjustments needed to be made she was also incredibly understanding. She is truly such a kind soul, with impeccable taste and creativity! Our wedding flowers were absolutely stunning and exceeded all our expectations. Our day was a dream come true, and so much of our amazing experience had to do with the work Jill put into making our vision come alive. We absolutely recommend Lace and Birch for weddings or any floral needs! Thank you Jill! <3"

"We worked with Jill (Lace & Birch) for our wedding flowers and we are SO SO GLAD we did!! As I'm someone who knows very little about flowers, I was beyond grateful for Jill's knowledge and guidance, and her ability to bring to life exactly the vision I had in mind. The photos speak for themselves—Jill has an incredibly eye for detail and her final designs were the highlight of our wedding day decor. Even more impressive than her skills was Jill's thoughtfulness throughout the craziness of planning a Covid-19 wedding. Not only was she flexible and understanding when we had to make changes, but she stood out as one the most compassionate people we worked with and someone who really cares about her clients. I would recommend Lace & Birch for anyone looking to book florals for their wedding!!"

"I cannot thank Jill enough for the absolutely stunning floral arrangements she created for my wedding day! I went into the process with only a few ideas, so her suggestions and expertise were beyond helpful to me. I so appreciate all the back and forth emails to figure out logistics, and the times she spent meeting with me to make sure every last detail would be perfect. The bouquets and floral arrangements turned out even better than I had imagined. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to have a stress-free floral experience when planning a wedding! Thank you Jill!"

"Lace & Birch did the wedding flowers (bouquets, boutonnières, arrangements, bud vases and corsages) for my wedding in September, 2022. Jill was a dream to work with. She was flexible and organized, professional, her communication was great and the work she did for us was beyond what we expected. I shared my colours, my ideas and wishes with Jill and she created the most beautiful, one of a kind floral arrangements that completely matched our vision and exceeded what we imagined. We wanted a boho look using dried florals. Everything Jill put together was unique and stunning. She is a dream worker who puts together the most magical florals I have ever seen!"

"We love Jill and her amazing talent with creating our wedding flowers! Her shop is the cutest floral shop ever!!! She went above and beyond on our wedding day with creating a vision we had of what we wanted. Literally the most beautiful display of flowers we could have ever dreamed of! Seeing her work the day of made us extremely happy. From my beautiful bouquet to the aisle arrangements and the arch everything was perfect. We loved meeting with her every time to go over the details and she was super helpful with the planning as well! Gave us a referral to an awesome day of coordinator as well to make the day run smoothly! Jill and her husband rearranged the florals the day of as well to get the most out of the stunning work created. We could not be thankful enough and would recommend Jill to everyone getting married or eloping! As well as purchasing florals for any event or special moment :)! It definitely makes everything feel like a fairy tale dream! Thank you so much for making our wedding so picturesque!!! <3"

"I can't begin to express how happy I am to have met Jill. I first discovered her work in a beautiful magazine and knew I wanted her to design my wedding. From the moment you talk to Jill, you know she is warm, professional, kind and caring. And CRAZY talented to boot. Whatever your dream, she will make it a reality. She takes the time to listen to you, asks so many detailed questions, and offers wonderful advice. She's had so much experience, she really knows the ins and outs of the wedding business. After my first meeting with Jill, I felt like we had known each other for years. Now I feel I have a lifelong friend! What more could you ask for from your wedding florist? You will not get better service than Jill. She and her husband are the sweetest pair and they work tirelessly to make your dream wedding a reality! Jill's shop is about 2 hours from my house and I plan to make regular trips every year!! Thank you Jill!!"

"Jill/Lace & Birch was the florist at our wedding and did an amazing job! I had guests asking for weeks who my florist was. The day was absolutely stunning because of her setup and professionalism. She even stayed to watch us go down the aisle and to move arrangements from our ceremony site to our reception area. Extremely creative and perfect colour coordination. She brought my dream to a reality. Thank you Lace & Birch! Xoxo K&M"

"Jill was so wonderful to work with! After a postponed wedding and a very unpleasant experience with my former florist, I was introduced to Jill and she was a dream to work with! Her expertise, professionalism and empathy made it so easy to work with. She provided insights, showed flexibility during the planning process and as a former bride herself she was really able to relate. The day of, she was on time and had everything we wanted and everything turned out so beautifully. Jill is a super talented florist and was amazing to work with. Hire her!"

"Jill is an amazing florist and was great to work with! Her bouquet designs are modern and romantic.. the floral arrangements she created for my wedding day matched my colour palette perfectly. We’re so happy to have discovered Jill’s store during our search for florists in the Hamilton area. We will continue to order bouquets from her in the future 💕"

"Jill is the sweetest person! Jill practically had creative freedom when it came to my wedding bouquets, bridesmaids bouquet, and all other things floral. I was envisioning a very boho, all dried look, with tons of eucalyptus. What Jill created was genuinely better than anything I could have dreamed of- fluffy pampas grass, dried flowers galore!- It was stunning! All of our guests adored Jill’s work, and I’m super grateful that she took the time to make everything so special for us and tailored everything to our specific taste. *Highly* recommend!!"

"I have worked with Jill both for my wedding flowers and shopped for daily needs. The shop is absolutely beautiful and has a wide variety of flowers, plants, pots and other locally sourced knick knacks! I loved popping in to get my daily plants and flowers and was always greeted with a friendly welcome.
I got married during the pandemic. Like many couples, we experienced many changes in our plants. Jill was amazing from the beginning! She understood my vision and we worked together to iron out the details to match what I was looking for. She made great suggestions based on my wants vs. budget and helped support with set-up and take-down. If you are looking for a florist, you are in the BEST hands!!! Lacy & BIRCH is the top choice for your needs 🙌🌿"

"We were connected with Jill through Dianna at Amavi planning, and we were so thrilled with her work!
I had a basic vision of some pampas grass and warm colours for our winter micro wedding.
She came to our home for set up, loved up on our Pooch (who was totally in the way), and left us a lovely note on her way out.
We were blown away by what she had created!! The toffee coloured roses were stunning! The addition of pampas grass and eucalyptus made it all come together. We cannot wait to work with her again in 2023!"

"Jill from Lace & Birch is such a professional and visionary…and I’m also happy to say she’s now a friend after working with her for my wedding. She’s open to ideas but has such a good sense and skill for complimentary florals, overall design/aesthetic, as well as working within a budget. Highly recommended!"

"From beginning to end, I can't thank Jill enough for making our wedding day truly magical.
Planning a wedding during a pandemic was an emotional roller coaster. At some points during 2020, it looked like our day was going to be called off entirely.
Throughout it all, Jill was kind, patient and accommodating. She pivoted with each plan I had and never made me feel like I was asking too much. Honestly, I'm so grateful to her. I couldn't have done it without her.
The wedding flowers? Stunning.
The woman behind them? Beautiful, inside and out. 100% recommend her shop & her for your next occasion!!"

"Jill is INCREDIBLE! Not only is she the sweetest most easy going person, she is so so talented. She truly has an eye for florals and decor. I am always getting compliments on our florals from our elopement, as well as the vintage/boho style picnic that she set up for us! She worked her butt off lugging everything she needed and holds a special place in our hearts as she was a witness for us that day ♥️ My husband and I cannot recommend her enough, she had a vision based on inspiration photos and made it perfectly come to life in such an effortless way. She's the best at what she does! You will not regret working with her ☺️"
