Who We Are...

The Wishing Well Florist is a corporate and special event florist offering a uniquely stunning product from the finest imported and locally grown flowers. Established for over sixty years on the north side of Chicago on Belmont Avenue, they have relocated just west of the University Village neighborhood. We service the entire downtown and suburban area of Chicago and are one of Chicago's finest wedding florists.

Dorothy and Heidi, friends since kindergarten, happened upon the floral industry when they enthusiastically purchased The Wishing Well Florist in March of 2005. Since that time they have worked diligently to ensure a sense of quality by bringing customers outstanding service with imaginative designs from their vast experience of creativity. With passion in their fingertips, they lovingly design and create your floral arrangements.

In August 2007, they transitioned their focus from retail to corporate and special events only, due to the high demand of their customer’s response to the impressive products and service they received. As artists, no two events have been repeated, each one customized with unique decor. They keep up with current designs and improve the ever changing trends with their own artistic style. With help from their experienced staff, all the details of your event are professionally executed. They greatly anticipate the final event and joy on your face, when everything comes together!

Starting in August 2017, we're very excited to bring another experienced professional florist to the team! Sumitra is a recent transplant to Chicago via.....the world!  Having been in the floral industry for 15 years, her job has taken her to some of the finest hotels and wedding destinations imaginable, from a super chic modern event in Japan to a private island on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, to upscale parties in Aspen, The Hamptons and Hawaii.  She found her passion for weddings while working as a hotel florist and had to fill in one day with the wedding department.  That was 11 years ago and there is not a day that goes by that she does not think about a wedding, even for just a minute! Her experience around the world brings fresh ideas to Chicago and she still travels every chance she gets, to check out the trends in other cities.  She loves her brides and there is nothing she wouldn't do for them!
