At Three Notch Florals, the magic of your event design comes through capturing a fleeting moment in nature and weaving it together with all the many other beautiful details of the day.


Primarily serving the Hudson Valley, New York City, and New Jersey, Three Notch is a floral & event design studio founded by Cara Schmidt.  Cara takes 15 to 20 weddings a year in order to work closely with each client and create a custom design for each one.

Seasonal, Sustainable, Thoughtful Design.

There is only one thing more important to us than your event, and that is our impact on this world.  We cannot continue to have weddings and celebrations if we do not take care of the Earth and each other.  Therefore, every decision at Three Notch Florals is made with sustainability in mind.  But what does that mean?  We believe sustainability means:

  • supporting our community by buying from our farmer neighbors to grow their small businesses

  • supporting our Earth by reducing non-renewable resources at every step of the process

  • supporting our industry by creating stable jobs rather than relying on temporary workers


Carving a sustainable business out of a world that rewards shortcuts is complicated, but the results are beautiful and so very worth the effort.  Read more about our journey in the journal.
