I was so happy I went with Lennie. She was fabulous. Incredibly knowledgeable on all things flowers (which was important for me because I do not know flower names), responsive, easy to work with, and a true talent! It was really important to me to support small, local businesses, and ideally, have our wedding be farm-to-table. Lennie offered just that-- it was pretty awesome to know that our flowers were grown just down the road- by Lennie!- and harvested the day before or day of our wedding. I gave her a lot of leeway and trusted her to pick what was best the weekend of, even with my bouquet. She surpassed ALL of my expectations. We got SO many compliments on our flowers, including from a pretty tough crowd and several folks that work in the industry. They are so fresh (they smelled delicious), local, seasonal, unique- and everyone wanted to check out my bouquet. Without much direction, Lennie matched our venue and the overall vibe we were trying to create perfectly. Truly can't recommend Lennie enough.

I connected with over 20 florists in the North Bay/SF area and the decision to go with Lennie was the easiest one I made throughout the entire wedding process. She is incredibly talented and understands her customers. If you're a bride/groom who has an idea of what you want in your mind but just can't put it into words, call Lennie. She will spend time with you on the phone, provide sample photos, and explain what’s blooming. Not only were her florals/herbs absolutely STUNNING, I honestly wish I was a florist. It's an industry where passion is crucial and you will understand that sentiment when you connect with B-Side Farm.

We were so thrilled to find Lennie through Saltwater Oyster Depot where we had our wedding dinner! Farm-to-table flowers were the perfect compliment to Saltwater's local food (and Lennie even contributed some veggies from her farm to the meal too). Since Lennie grows and harvests the flowers herself, we knew she would select the freshest and most perfect blooms for our date. We gave her very little direction other than to do what she does best, and the arrangements she created were beautiful. On top of that she was so easy to work with - patient, kind and always smiling! Highly recommended.

We can't even begin to describe how amazing of a job she did on EVERYTHING! We never thought we'd be the couple who would gush over our flowers at our wedding but we can't stop talking about them! Everything turned out gorgeous, and Lennie was amazing to work with! We were so lucky we found her and B-Side Farm and would highly recommend them to anyone!

Lennie is a flower genius and a pleasure work with! She did all the flower arrangements for my wedding last week and did a fantastic job.
The hall we rented for the occasion was very simple so we badly needed the flowers to lift the space, and they really did. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in and saw what Lennie and her assistant for the day had accomplished! She had listened to our wishes for the wedding, followed our guidelines, worked within our limited budget and somehow managed to put it all together in a way that exceeded all my expectations.
Lennie also made me a beautiful flower crown, and a boutonniere for my spouse that fit our outfits perfectly and will be sweet memories of the most amazing day of my life. Thank you so much, Lennie!

Lennie did a stunning job on florals for our welcome dinner for 130 people in Point Reyes. The venue was outdoors, and Lennie's florals brought elegant, natural beauty to long farm tables. She grows her own flowers, and worked with us to provide input on what would work well within a style that we described. The outcome was perfection - we really couldn't have been happier with the beautiful and tasteful florals.
Along the process Lennie is a wonderful vendor to work with. She was always responsive, attentive and friendly -perfectly accomplishing what we had hoped for and much more. The outcome was beautiful and perfect - and she even let us keep it in place until brunch on Sunday when it still looked fresh and very nice! Lennie is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her with utmost confidence for any wedding or event.
Thank you so much Lennie!

Beyond her flexibility and ease of contacting, the flowers were GORGEOUS. SO many beautiful colors, clearly so well loved and cared for by Lennie. She was also willing to make my bridal bouquet extra-special; I mailed her a locket in advance, which she lovingly attached to my bouquet. And when I wasn't available to pick them up in person last minute, she worked with my bridesmaids to coordinate a mostly seamless hand-off. I'm SO glad I decided to go with Lennie, and am already looking for excuses to work with her again.
