A Beautiful California Florist was recommended to us by the Long Beach Hyatt for our wedding this April. We were planning the event from MA, and were unable to meet Wendy, her store or her staff. All of our coordination was via email and telephone. No more than 6 emails/calls were made given our busy schedules. We were afraid of what we would be given, but when the day of our wedding arrived, we were stupendously impressed. The flowers were absolutely stunning. Wendy had found blooms we had never seen before and placed them artistically in our centerpieces all while staying within our budget. The bridal bouquet was elegantly wrapped, as were the bridesmaids' flowers and groomsmens' boutonnieres. We requested an arch, which was assembled and beautifully decorated for us. We have nothing but praise for the look of ALL the flowers in our wedding. What impressed us most, however, was the service provided us. On the day of the wedding, the flowers and bouquets were exactly where they should be: the ladies' flowers were in the hotel room (even before the bride arrived!), the groomsmens flowers were at the ceremony site, and the cake was dressed with flowers to match a ribbon that Wendy was only emailed a picture of. The bride somehow never even met Wendy on the day of the event. Wendy was magically everywhere and invisible, and doing all the right things. She and her staff never needed to be instructed or redirected on the day of our wedding; they did a perfect and magnificent job, and we didn't need to worry about anything when it came to the flowers. We appreciated that most, given the millions of other details that needed to be tended to. On our special day, the flowers took care of themselves.
