The best find I had for our wedding! I absolutely loved working with Tajalli. From the time of our initial call all the way through to the wedding day, she exceeded all of my expectations. She also really paid attention to my needs with my budget and offered cheaper alternatives while still keeping my overall vision in mind. On the day of the wedding she was on site and made sure everything looked absolutely perfect. All of my friends and guests were raving about how beautiful my flowers were - they were absolutely stunning. Definitely am recommending the petal to all of my newly engaged friends to use for their wedding. - Allie

I don't even know where to start. Tajalli was hands-down the best vendor we booked for our wedding day. I didn't realize how much of a role flowers were going to play in our big day until we got deeper into planning, and she truthfully made all of our dreams come true. In the midst of my own wedding planning, I myself started my own wedding business and worked with a local florist where I learned more and more about flowers. I made specific requests along the way (which, I totally know is annoying-sorry Taj!), and had to also make some nearly last minute changes and she never once told me no or that she couldn't do something or that my budget was too low. It is hard to come by vendors who are both down-to-earth AND talented and with Tajalli you will absolutely get the best of both worlds. I will never forget the moment I walked into our venue and saw everything I had been dreaming of come to life exactly as I imagined-her work literally brought me to (happy) tears. A million thank yous, Tajalli! xoxoxoxo - Kara

Tajalli is amazing! Seriously, one of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I was unsure of how I wanted my flowers to look like in the beginning and she gave me lots of options and quickly made adjustments in the planning stages to designs/flowers I liked or disliked. The flowers were gorgeous, and I would highly recommend going with the arch decorated in flowers during the ceremony, which we repurposed to use at our sweetheart table at the reception. Just be sure to remind your guests not to take the medium sized compotes at the end of the night. We will definitely be using The Petal for any flowers that we need in the future. Thanks again! - S +A


I LOVED working with Tajalli from The Petal. Seriously, she was the easiest vendor to work with by far. Plus, she was incredibly kind and understanding, which made me [stressed out Bride], really appreciate our time and the whole wedding process so much more. Her work speaks for herself, since I didn’t have an actual picture of what I wanted. She called me one evening and I literally used adjectives, like romantic, classic, whimsical. Tajalli took my words and formed them into incredible pieces for my wedding! Please just go for it with Tajalli and The Petal. Their work is beyond amazing, and their professionalism sets the company a notch above the others. Her prices are fair, she’s willing to work with you as your mind changes, and you will literally gasp as you see everything on your Wedding Day. Thank you Tajalli and The Petal Team! You all are so amazing and helped me have an amazing and BEAUTIFUL wedding! - Sarah

Tajalli was an absolute delight to work with. She completely floored us with the décor and centerpieces and all the additional wedding details. Without her I am not sure that the wedding would have been the same. She is truly a master of her craft and a complete business professional regarding booking, planning and details overall. Do not hesitate when trying to choose a florist. Everything from the hanging backdrop, to the centerpieces and the accents to the stunning bridal bouquet and boutonnieres were gorgeous. In the age we live in we all drool over Social Media worthy details and The Petal did not disappoint. Everything looked perfect and as if it was out of a magazine. I truly recommend "The Petal" and will continue to support and recommend them to anyone looking for a florist. Thanks again for making our special day that much more magical. - Vanessa


Tajalli totally brought my wedding floral visions to life. Everything truly looked amazing. Every single detail was on point. She was also so easy and flexible to work with. We had some late in the game/last minute changes and she handled everything with no problems. I would definitely recommend The Petal. - LeKeziah


Let me tell you about Tajalli, not only is she incredibly talented, she is a fantastic person. Flowers were the one thing that I didn't really know what I wanted. So I told Tajalli my colors and what I didn't want she she ran with it and did a fantastic job. Choose The Petal, you won't regret it. - Alyson


Working with The Petal was great! We were on a pretty tight budget and Tajalli really made it happen! She was super communicative throughout the planning process, incredibly professional, willing to work within our budget, and most importantly, the flowers turned out organic and beautiful!! Our tables were simple and elegant and we loved all of the votive candles Tajalli incorporated. We highly recommend working with The Petal! - Shana


Go with The Petal! Tajalli did my wedding flowers and I could not have been happier. She was very professional and everything turned out so gorgeous. I told her I wanted Mediterranean inspired bouquets/arrangements using lots of olive branches + cream/white flowers and she nailed it! I also had a few giant urns of just olive branches at the reception that were so fun & looked incredible. Very glad I chose her! She was awesome to work with. - Sarah


What can we say? Tajalli (owner and operator of The Petal) is one of a kind. She was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout our wedding planning process. She made beautiful table arrangements, centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages. She has a real talent for this job. You can count yourself lucky to have Tajalli and the rest of The Petal team working for you at your event. Highly recommended. - Nicole


Tajalli was wonderful to work with, her vision and creations were beautiful and she was easy to get in touch with. The floral design was the most important decor aspect for our wedding and I was so so pleased with the outcome! - Taylor


I loved working with Tajalli! She was so patient during the initial call when my fiance, and both of my parents were in the room. She also sent a lovely style board with her estimate right after the conversation - so I had a full picture of what she envisioned. She handled everything from the ceremony to the reception to the bridal party flowers. Her arrangements are gorgeous and tasteful. And she's a local mom with her own business. 100% fantastic lady. - Kelly


I was overwhelmed by trying to locate vendors for our wedding and my sister-in-law had suggested Tajalli for our flowers since she used her at their wedding. I distinctly remember how beautiful her flowers were and knew that I didn't need to worry about anything for our wedding. Tajalli was incredible. We had phone interviews to understand what we were looking for and she sent a sample email with what ideas she had in mind. When the day came I was floored. The flowers were so much better in person and we received so many compliments on them. Tajalli was easy to work with, convenient, and responded quickly. She made the whole process that much easier to handle. Thank you so much Tajalli for your incredible work!! - Charron


Tajalli was wonderful to work with and created stunning pieces for our wedding! She was able to do much more with our budget than I thought possible. Communicating with Tajalli was so easy. After a conversation about my vision, she sent over a style board that was absolutely perfect! She was also able to add some last minute greenery for our longer than expected head table. Tajalli's work was amazing and we received compliments on the flowers all day. We are so happy we chose The Petal and would highly recommend! - Sarah


We cannot say enough great things about working with Tajalli - words simply will not do our experience justice. The Petal was the first vendor with which I spoke in planning our wedding. I told Tajalli my thoughts, and she sent me a design board immediately, nailing every idea I had and providing suggestions to make everything more beautiful. I met with one other florist the next day, and not only were they more than double the price of the Petal, they did not share my vision the way that Tajalli did. We could not be happier that we chose the Petal. Bridesmaids gushed over their flowers, and we received so many compliments from guests. Tajalli, I cannot wait to host another event to use you again! Thank you so much for making our day so beautiful. - Katie


I was married this past May and utilized The Petal for our flower needs. Tajalli was an absolute pleasure to work and extremely patient as we worked through exactly what we wanted. She was more than willing to stay within our budget and provided us with multiple pricing options, which was great. The flowers/decor themselves were absolutely stunning and exactly what I was looking for based on the moodboard I shared. I highly recommend to others! with and more than willing to work within our budget. She was able to emulate the moodboard I sent beautifully. - Danielle


The Petal did a fabulous job with my wedding flowers! They were filled with exactly the type and color of blooms I had requested and looked stunning. The Petal was so easy and pleasant to work with as well. Highly recommended. - Cassie


Tajalli did an extraordinary job with the flowers for our wedding. I loved them! I had a very small ceremony and reception in Chicago and wasn't very specific about what I wanted, so I didn't know what to expect. My bouquet, the table arrangements and flowers at my ceremony were stunning. I couldn't be more happy with the outcome. Tajalli was easy to work with and took care of everything. I am very grateful and would recommend her for future events! - Jennifer


I don't even know where to begin. Tajalli is a joy to work with as a human and as an artist. She has an amazing ability to accentuate space with a natural but somehow still stunning array of flowers, greenery and candles. Her style is sleek and beautiful with a touch of flair. I don't speak flower very well, but she patiently looked at my pinterests boards and magazine clippings and deciphered exactly what I hoped for but couldn't quite express. It was amazing when it all came together. A million thank yous! - C R


The owner of The Petal, Tajalli was very easy to work with. What stood her out from the rest is that she genuinely cared in the vision of our floral arrangements before I even signed the contract. Tajalli asked for photos to understand what it is I was looking for, as many florist merely gave a rough estimate of cost running thousands without knowing any details to our arrangements. Tajalli's prices definitely out beat other florists I came in contact with, and I am pleased to have had someone personable and detail oriented in her work. The pinterest photos I had as inspiration to my wedding day matched even better in person to the tee. On my crazy wedding morning, Tajalli even took the time at the ceremony to stick around for about more than a half hour to help our groomsmen with boutonnieres, flower girls with crowns, mothers with corsages, and until the very last minute waited for me and my bridesmaids arrival to hand off our bouquets without even asking. The Petal was an easy process to work with and I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends in the future! Thank you Tajalli.- Aileen


We chose Tajalli (The Petal) for our floral and decor because my first impression of Tajalli was that she is calm and collected in any situation. We are so very thankful that we had her help throughout the wedding planning process. She was also one of the only florists in Chicago, out of the many I spoke to, that did not snicker at my budget. After our initial conversation, she sent some follow-up questions that really showed me that she cared about my cultural background and how it is incorporated into the wedding flowers. She then sent a proposal a couple weeks later (I was not in any rush because there was plenty of time) that was detailed and exactly within my budget. After signing the contract, we did not speak again until about 4 months before wedding date. I had a change in reception venue and Tajalli met me at the new venue to make necessary changes to the plan. She was able to get me a new plan in a short time. She also lessened my stress level and coordinated with both of my venues personally without direction from me. For example, I had a miscommunication with the ceremony venue about set-up time. I told Tajalli about it and she reached out to the coordinator at the Nature Museum and took care of the entire situation for me. Tajalli is extremely detail oriented but also very efficient. She always sent follow up questions to make sure that everything was exactly as I wanted but only after careful evaluation of what has already been discussed. I added a couple things last minute and all I needed to do was email her to let her know. Tajalli personally delivered my bouquets, boutonnieres, and flower baskets to our hotel and was on time despite the crazy traffic on Memorial Day weekend in downtown Chicago. The beautiful flowers and the ceremony arch (photos attached) - I did not have a specific color combination for my wedding or for the flowers. I gave Tajalli some photos of flowers I liked and the general colors to avoid for a Chinese wedding. I could not have asked for more gorgeous arrangements. The ceremony arch was so perfect against the backdrop of the Nature Museum. I felt beautiful going down the aisle (thank goodness Tajalli reminded me to hold the bouquet lower). Tajalli also made my crazy idea happen. I wanted to move the arch from the ceremony to my reception venue and convert it into a photobooth backdrop. All Tajalli said was “okay, I think I can make that happen” and she did. My family and friends loved it! When I donated my wedding flowers to Random Acts of Flowers the next day, the director gushed at the beautiful arrangements. Thank you so much for making our wedding even more special. - Siwei


1 word....AMAZING!! I can't even begin to describe how thankful I am to have chosen The Petal. Tajalli was so incredibly accommodating and her work is amazing. She was able to completely transform my reception space from an industrial loft to a romantic garden feel. The way that she assembled my altar was exactly how I had pictured it. The long tables were absolutely perfect decorated with the gold vases I provided her and the greenery was beautiful. I can't say enough about how amazing she is. If you are looking for a florist for your wedding book The Petal and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed! - Amanda


I was blown away by my flowers from The Petal. In the beginning, I had a hard time articulating my vision, but The Petal was able to execute what I wanted when I didn't even know what I wanted. When I saw the flowers in person, I was overjoyed with their beauty. They were better than I could ever have imagined. I received so many compliments from my guests on the flowers. The Petal was very professional and responsive. Everything arrived on time and I didn't have to worry about a thing. I'll always recommend The Petal. They truly made my day amazing! - Carolyn
