I was referred to April by a friend and hired her as my wedding florist. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. Her creativity was nothing short of genius and I am so grateful to have found her. She is incredibly dedicated and passionate about her work. She understood my vision and I trusted her completely. We had an open line of communication throughout the entire process and she offered amazing insight. The arrangements she put together were breathtaking, everything I wanted and more. I can't recommend her enough!
I had a wonderful time working with April for my wedding at the Brazilian Room in June 2017 and would highly recommend her. She created bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages, ceremony flowers, and reception centerpieces. What immediately set her apart was her responsiveness and her ability to work within my budget, which was modest but much less than the minimum that most Bay Area florists require. I gave her a couple of photos from Pinterest and vague verbal descriptions of what I was interested in (small centerpieces with mostly greenery and white flowers as accents) and she came back with a detailed design proposal that perfectly captured the look I was going for. I will admit I was originally on the fence about spending money on flowers for the wedding but I am so glad I did because once I saw them at the venue, I realized they made all the difference and contributed to making the day even more special than it already was. I could not stop staring at my bouquet! It was so lush and full and organic-feeling, not at all like those constricted and symmetrical bouquets that seem to be typical of many florists. She used high quality flowers and as a bonus, the centerpieces that guests took home lasted for more than a few days. You will love working with April!
Picking April as our floral designer for the wedding was one of the best decisions I ever made. The wedding industry in the Bay Area is insane, and April not only keeps up with the all of the demands of the industry, but is always doing so with a big smile. She kept us within our budget and still blew me away with her designs, skills, and overall logistics. I keep saying this, but my wedding was truly flawless. I did not have to worry about one thing. She delivered everything I wanted, and more. Thank you so much April!
I had already been searching for a wedding florist for about 3 weeks and was ready to just DIY my wedding florals, when one florist referred me to April. Within 24 hours, April had gotten me re-excited about the flowers for my wedding and I decided that I wanted to book with her.
The pros: As someone who works behind a computer all day, I value quick response times and transparency. April delivered on just that. She meticulously responded to every one of my dozens of questions, whether it was about the budget, centerpiece sizes, or even how other decorative pieces might match with the flowers. I had quite a modest budget for wedding florals..so much that I was almost embarrassed to tell florists my ideal budget because many of them stopped communications quickly after seeing it. April was so accommodating and honest, though. She never once tried to sell me on expanding my floral plans, and at the same time was completely upfront with the costs and how to make any modifications for my budget.
The above and beyonds: I was particularly surprised that April didn't just send me examples of centerpieces/bouquets, but created an entire design proposal to show me how the creative pieces of my wedding might come together. This included signage, invites, palettes, etc. This is something I definitely didn't see among all of the other florists I reached out to. Throughout the entire process, April carefully absorbed all my preferences and came together with a design that made sense for me. When I looked through the final vision board, I was in awe because April had so fluidly translated my thoughts to visuals. Overall, April is just so pleasant and fun to work with! I only plan on getting married once, but I almost wish we had more opportunities to work together!
"I was referred to April and immediately fell in love with her work. I was planning a wedding in 3 weeks and April helped & accommodated me with no hesitation! She was the easiest vendor to work with and made the process of choosing a vision and color palette very easy. Not to mention she is such a sweetheart! Every centerpiece, altar arrangement, bouquet, boutonniere, corsage, flower crown and cake decor was simply beautiful! Everyone loved her arrangements and I could not have been happier. I hope to work with her again in the future and would not hesitate referring her to anyone and everyone!"
