Lady D with Black Petal Floral Design provided the most beautiful flowers for my April 2016 wedding. She listened to my vision and came up with so much more. Everything was perfect. The best part however was working with Lady D. She was responsive, came to walk throughs to brainstorm with me and always had a smile on her face. You rock lady.

Lady D was a gift to us. Most florists won't even talk to you without a starting price of $3K. We weren't looking to spend a ton on flowers, but still wanted something tasteful to accent our wedding. Lady D worked with us to create classic, elegant arrangements that exceeded expectations without exceeding our budget. She did bouquets, boutonnieres, and table centerpieces for us - everything was perfect and she was a pleasure to work with. I loved how she spent time to get our thoughts and ultimately created something that was so true to my vision and clearly showed attention to detail. I cannot recommend Lady D enough, she won't disappoint!

Lady D is so wonderful and talented! She is professional, personal and kind. As a photographer, I get to see so many florists and I just know when working with Lady D, that everything will turn out beautiful!

I am an event coordinator in Austin and had the pleasure of working with Lady D at Black Petal on a wedding last weekend. The bride and groom had a limited budget for flowers so I wasn't sure what was going to appear for the centerpieces, however when all those stunning arrangements showed up I was pleasantly surprised and the bride and groom couldn't have been happier. The bouquets were elegant and modern as were the centerpieces.They were perfect and the bride was so happy! Not only were the flowers gorgeous, Lady D was on wonderful to work with, very responsive, and even came in a bit early so the bride could have all the bouquets when the photography timeline was changed last minute. All those things are so important on the coordinating end. I can't wait to work with her again!

Lady D is truly an amazing woman! She is as kind as she is hardworking and talented. Her dedication to creating beauty and to all other aspects of her life is very inspiring. I would recommend her services for any occasion. You won't be disappointed .

Diane is just so talented! With an incredible eye for detail, she brings a true creative spark to all she touches. I've ordered many bouquets for special occasions from her and she always makes them extra special. Her use of color is also completely unique. She is a wonderful addition to the Austin Floral scene, breathing in her own Brazilian Flair. Highly recommended.

I used Black Petal Floral Design to send my client flowers. She loved them and so did her whole office! Very good use of color! Very good price points as well. Highly recommended!!!
- Ellena Mills, customer
Black Petal was at the Mother's Day Pop Up at Stouthaus Coffee. Lady D had dozens of options, the hardest part was picking which one to go home with. They were all so stunning! And she has been using mini pineapples in her arrangements -- so cute!

Lady invests 100% of her attention, love, and efforts into her clients while adding a creative edge. She is the very best.

Lady D is a one of a kind florist. She is very personable, understanding, and honest. She is a brides dream as she works diligently to keep brides within their set budget and is quite frank in understanding the reality that "flowers are beautiful, but they die." Lady D promises flowers and arrangements that are within a brides budget all while honestly encouraging brides to spend wisely on floral arrangements. It's hard to find any vendor that honest!
Beyond her genuinity, she kept me in line as a first time bride and needing all the guidance a girl could get. Her prompt communication and insight was invaluable.
Lady D has a unique eye for flowers, color coordination, and arrangements. She'll perfectly capture your style for any occasion!
I consider myself very lucky to have worked with such a talented, personable, and professional florist :)
-Kayla Ellmann, bride
Lady D was a pleasure to work with, and the flowers and greenery at my wedding were so beautiful. I had a half-formed vision of what I wanted and she brought it to reality; making such unique and lovely bouquets and boutonnieres.
I feel lucky to have found a florist who not only worked so creatively with a single idea I proffered, but respected the budget I set forth and exceeded my expectations.
I can't wait to see the pictures from the day so I can enjoy it all again.
-Emily McArdle Fort, bride
After my first meeting with Lady Diane I knew I was in good hands. She's so kind and funny, she understood me and inspired me! My wedding flowers were more beautiful than I ever could've have dreamed. I absolutely loved them, everyone was in awe. I am so grateful!!
-Angela Palacios De Venegas, bride
Lady D, Black Petal Floral Design – I wasn’t sure what to expect with the greenery since I wouldn’t be able to see it until we were walking into our reception, but it was SO BEAUTIFUL. The greenery was perfect Thank you for decorating our reception with life.
-Sierra Camelia, bride
Lady D was so great to work with and made our wedding gorgeous! She really listened to our thoughts of what we wanted, was eager to bring our vision to life, and has an eye for making beautiful arrangements. We had a vague idea of the kind of look we were going for but weren't really certain, but Lady really made it happen and truly exceeded my expectations! Our venue was a "blank slate" warehouse space, but the gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres, big greenery centerpieces, little touches like bud vases and flower clusters on the chairs, and a large greenery arch for our ceremony all made it feel lush and beautiful. Lady was wonderful to work with, and I would recommend her to anyone!
- Carsi Mitzner, bride
Working with Lady D and Black Petal is like working with a friend. She genuinely listened to my vision AND my budget. She made my dreams come true of having blue hydrangeas at the wedding which meant a lot to me since it is connected to my family heritage and the Portuguese island both my parents are from. Not to mention they are generally out of season this time of year. Highly recommended.
-Christina Holguin- bride
Lady D with Black Petal was by far the best vendor I hired for my wedding. From our very first email correspondence, I knew I was going to like her. She is so friendly and she really understood my vision for the big day! Even though I didn't know the exact flowers I wanted, she was able to take what I told her and run with it. She also did her best to keep everything within my price range (whereas OTHER florists told me I would have to compromise on style to stay within my budget). Lady D made my dream wedding a reality. I was amazed when I walked in - everything was so beautiful and guests loved the playful poppies. Black Petal really went above and beyond!
-Brittney Voigt- bride
Lady D really took the time to understand my floral vision. She is creative and was mindful of my budget. I loved talking to her about my ideas and she was really dedicated to making sure every detail was thought out for my big day. I did a last minute bridal shoot and she was able to create a beautiful bouquet for me with only a couple of days notice! On the wedding day, she decorated a circle arch with roses and greenery and it was the most beautiful arch I had ever seen. The arch was perfect and exactly as we discussed. My bouquet and the bridesmaid's bouquets were stunning! I was so happy with all the floral arrangements and Lady D's passion really shows in her work.
Lady D made all my visions and dreams come to life for our wedding. I showed her a few pictures and she knew exactly what flowers were in season and exactly how to achieve the look I wanted. The flowers lady D picked out for our special day were so beautiful! They almost looked fake because of how flawless they were. In fact I still have some of my flowers 3 months later and they are in perfect shape. Other than her beautiful flower arrangements Lady D was excellent to work with. She allowed me to call/email/text her at any time I thought of a new idea or had questions. I know she carefully thought and planned out every single detail of the floral arrangements at our wedding. Her and her team were there bright and early and did not stop working all morning untill everything was perfect. Not to mention they were in the Texas heat and lady D was 8 months pregnant at the time. She did not let anything stand in her way or affect her work at all. If you are looking for a florist that can see your visions, pay close attention to detail, will communicate well, and has the most beautiful arrangements she is your gal!!! Thank you Lady D for making my dreams come to life. I would recommend you 100 times over again. All my love.
Lady D absolutely blew me away! I could not believe how gorgeous every floral detail was. She took my vision and not only executed it, but created something even more beautiful and dreamy than I could imagine. Beyond that, she is a delight to work with. She is honest, kind, hard working and it felt like we were old friends. I loved having her a part of my special day and would love to work with her in the future. Thank you for making our dreams come true, Lady D! We love you!
-Lauren Beck Thomas-bride
Lady D was a dream come true. We planned our wedding from out of state, and from our first contact over the phone, she was extremely professional, thorough, kind and open to suggestions. During wedding planning, these qualities are so critical, since it's very easy to become overwhelmed with the tons of galleries, Pinterest boards, and insane quotes from other floral options out there. Our wedding venue already had a lot of beautiful landscaping, plants, trees, etc., but we knew we still needed florals for our tables, bouquets, bouitainnaires, and so forth. Again, with all the Pinterest boards and wedding blogs, there were points in the process where we thought we could simply DIY our flowers to cut costs, but in doing research, it was clear that it's in everyone's best interest to leave it to the professionals. Just do it. It's worth the expense, plus Lady D consistently worked with us to make sure we stayed within our budget, while keeping our vision and quality intact. During the craziness of getting ready the day of, it was such a breath of fresh air to have Lady D walk in with beautiful bouquets, our flower girl crown, corsages, bouitainnaires, plus a beautiful smile! She knew exactly what to do for set up. All I had to do (along with my wedding party and family members) was simply walk out and see everything come together beautifully. That's priceless. I HIGHLY recommend Lady D and the team at Black Petal Floral Design. Thank you for making our day so special, Lady D!
