We used A Love's in Bloom for our wedding on 5.31.14. We found her through various wedding sites and Yelp. Valarie was awesome through the entire process.. She was quick on returning emails and any questions we had; she was professional and very easy to work with! Unfortunately on our wedding day Valarie was unable to attend to deliver our flowers but she sent an assistant who helped set up our arch (which we rented from Valarie), added our chiffon and flowers. I had a vision for our arch that was very specific and her assistant delivered and made it even more beautiful than I ever imagined. We also delivered our rustic can "vases" to Valarie's house ahead of time so set up was easy. My flowers the wedding day had a rustic feel and she totally hit the mark on what we wanted and at a great value! I would highly recommend Valarie to anyone looking for a great florist.

Look no further - Valerie IS the florist you need!! It was so amazing to work with her - she had pictures, samples, great ideas, smart suggestions and lots of information about the various types of flowers. I felt comfortable working with her throughout all the wedding planning. I LOVE purple and she did an amazing job bringing my purple wedding to life!! She delivered the flowers to my hotel, set up at my wedding venue and I had nothing to worry about. I highly recommend Valerie for any of your floral needs - please contact her and see for yourself! :)

Valarie was absolutely wonderful! She helped us figure out our vision and delivered it impeccably - 6 months later, we still talk about how pretty our flowers were. To make it even better, her prices were extremely reasonable (better than we expected, and better than we saw anywhere else). Thanks Valarie!!

I was a little nervous about my choices for my flowers and I actually changed my centerpieces shortly after my consultation because of the doubt I had. However, I must say that I absolutely LOVED my flowers and everything that Valarie and her team put together was so gorgeous!! I was so in love with the centerpieces and was extremely happy with how all the bouquets/boutonnières looked. And the details for the ceremony were exactly what I wanted. Valarie is very professional and so helpful with deciding on what to choose. I loved working with her so much!!

Valerie is amazing. She was referred to me by my wedding planner when my first florist (a family friend) dropped out. Her flowers were beautiful and her prices were super reasonable. Most florists charged thousands more for what Valerie did beautifully and within our budget. She didnt take advantage of my situation - she was compassionate and kind. I would recommend her to every bride i know!

My flowers were beautiful, my bouquet fit me perfectly, the bouquets for my bridesmaids looked gorgeous. My nieces/ flower girls had flower balls, petals kept falling but thats because my nieces are super hyper and can't keep still.

She is very quick to respond, at last minute my stepmom cancelled and remembered that I needed two roses for my Mom and Mother In Law and I previously ordered a corsage for my stepmom. I emailed her the day before the wedding about this situation and she had it work out perfectly.

She did a great job!

Valarie did the most amazing job on the flowers for our wedding! From the start, she handled everything with ease and professionalism. She was easy to contact, whether by email or phone, and always had good ideas about arrangements and colors. I remember when I first met Valarie for the consult, she was very organized; she had her laptop along with swatch books of all the different kinds of flowers and colors that she could use for our big day. She took great notes about what we envisioned on having. I hired her on the spot! Her prices were very, very reasonable and she helped me tremendously with deciding on what we needed for our big day (aisle runner decorations, corsages, bouquets, boutonnieres, table arrangements, archway, etc) . We decided to go with a fall color scheme for our arrangements; we had oranges, reds, yellows and fall leaves were sprinkled along the aisle. So pretty! Valarie worked with our wedding site before (Hiddenbrooke) and her team arrived early to arrange the ceremony area as well as the tables in the reception area. I remember many people coming up to us throughout the night and complementing our flowers and colors. We were truly happy and glad we chose A Love's In Bloom. Thanks Valarie!

Valarie is so wonderful! I had already met with one florist, prior to meeting with Valarie, so I had an idea of what I was looking for. Valarie opened up my eyes to so much more! She had so many ideas and photos to back her up. She truly creates beautiful works of art! She knew exactly what was in season during the time of my wedding, and what combinations would look good together with our colors. She was also able to give me a quote right on the spot, versus taking notes and then getting back to me a week later (which is what the other florist did). Valarie also worked a lot to keep our costs down. She was very honest and straightforward saying things like, "This will look just as good, but costs this much less." As a bride on a budget, I really appreciated this. When she came the morning of the wedding to deliver the bouquets, my eyes filled with tears of joy when I saw my beautiful bouquet. It smelled just as good too! I wish I could have kept it forever!

I had heard about A Loves in Bloom from a friend of mine who had recently used Valerie for her wedding. I had meet with her in Dec 2011 even though my wedding wasn't until September 2012 to get an idea of what i was looking for. I had told Valerie I had a budget and really needed to stick to it. I ended up coming under my budget and was able to add a few extra things. One thing I really wanted was tulips I knew that they were not in season in September but she had assured me that didn't matter and was able to get them. I would recommend A Loves In Bloom to anyone looking for a great floriest.

I had a custom piece I requested for over my entryway. Valarie and her crew had it set and in place (they had to build it) in plenty of time and it didn't break my bank! Everything was just as requested; she was responsive and accommodating at every turn of wedding hysteria. No hidden costs and terrific service. I would definitely use her again!

Man, oh man. I cannot even begin to explain how much I appreciate Valarie! From our initial meeting at Sbux...I just KNEW she was going to be absolutely amazing. She totally helped me hone in on my vision and ran with it (in a totally affordable way no less). She was so eager to help me in every way possible (and I had A LOT of questions). I was really set on having gold vases and she decided to add gold vases to her inventory to help me out—she goes above and beyond. On the day of my wedding she did not disappoint either—the flower arrangements and bouquets were out of this world GORGEOUS. I spent 2 years planning my wedding and a lot was depending upon those flowers—they were truly even more beautiful than I imagined. Seriously...you will not be disappointed! Valarie is THE BEST!

Valarie with "A Love's in Bloom" is seriously the best. I went to a couple of florists first before going to her and they were wayyyyyy out of my price range. Valarie pulled it off for lss than half the pricetag of the other florists and that was even after I had everything I wanted and more. I couldn't believe it! I am referring her to all my friends who are getting married within the next year. She is very professional and got back to me within 24 hours usually. She is also a sweet lady. My flowers were stunning. I culdn't believe how amazing they turned out. As far as I'm concerned, she is the best florist in the Bay Area.

Valarie met several times with me to help me figure out what kind of flowers I actually wanted and what looked good together. She was patient and flexible since I didn't really know what I wanted at first. She has a great style and really knows flowers. I wanted a memorial bouquet for the groom's late father but I had no idea what to put in it so I left it to her to make it "look exotic and reflect his love of travel." I got SO many compliments on how beautiful it was. The wind unfortunately wouldn't cooperate with my aisle runner but that wasn't Valarie's fault. Everything else was perfect, she was on time, professional and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!!

Valarie was wonderful to work with. We had many changes, even up to the week before the wedding, and she was always accommodating and flexible. I had no idea regarding the cost of wedding flowers, but when I told recently married friends what I was charged, they assured me that I was getting quite a deal. Not only that, but the flowers looked amazing on the wedding day, and I had so many complements on them. Everything turned out exceptionally!

Valarie was so easy to work with, helped me figure out what colors and size bouquets would work best for my wedding, and even when my bridesmaids dresses came in a different color she was right there helping me change ribbon color and making sure everything was exactly the way I wanted it. We did shop around and A Love's in Bloom had the best price for what we were looking for, I never stressed about the flowers for my wedding so you can't ask for more than that during a very stressful time in your life! I will return to A Love's in Bloom for any other party I need flowers for.

Valarie really listened to what I wanted and made suggestions based on what she heard me say I liked (unlike some other florists I interviewed who seemed to only suggest things they thought were pretty). She had so many more options than other florists (for vase style, pedestal style, ribbons, ect.) and she had an extensive portfolio. She has so much knowledge about types of flowers, the many shades a flower comes in, and the availability throughout the seasons. She was incredibly accommodating, even coming to my house to pick up items I was providing that I wanted floral arrangements in/on (memory vase, bird cage for cards, ect.). I made A LOT of changes within a couple weeks of my wedding. I added boutonnieres, centerpieces for the balcony, changed what color/type of flower I wanted for certain arrangements. She was so easy going about it. She quickly sent me confirmation of my request, and then a new invoice. The day of my wedding she delivered flowers to three locations; my house, the church and the reception hall. She was so sweet when she came to my house. I didn't even know she was there until she came to a back room and handed me my bouquet. Such personal service! She told me how beautiful I looked and gave me a very quick run down on where she was heading next. But she did not ask me any questions. I think she just knew I was a control freak and would be calmed to know she was handling things perfectly!! I have no regrets having chosen A Love's In Bloom for my floral needs at my wedding. In fact, I am 100% certain that I chose the best possible company to work with. I have no regrets!! And that's hard to say when it comes to your perfect day. :) Thank you Valarie!

I can't say enough to Thank Val at A Love's in Bloom for how special she helped make our wedding. She was the first vendor we met with and the one we found most important to set the tone for the decor of the day. She was flexible when scheduling meetings and I liked that she really took notes and made suggestions based upon my reaction to photos and my comments about what I liked/didn't like. She was able to help design a theme that represented my taste...even better than I could describe it. At one point, I shared how much I loved hydrangeas and assumed they were beyond my budget. She found a way to include them and change my design to allow for the more expensive item!

My bridesmaid dress was a unique color and she immediately found a solution that would tie in all the colors of the day and honor my original vision of elegance!

She created a mock example of the centerpiece and helped me to envision what the "big day" would look like! On the morning of my wedding, she arrived to my hotel suite with the gorgeous bouquets and I knew I would be in for a special treat when I got back later to see my ballroom.

She was genuinely excited to help and took photos and made me feel special. She even took the time to write the names of the recipients of the personal flowers so that my family could easily be honored and quickly be identified.

When we got back to the hotel, and saw our ballroom for the first time...all I could see was the glow of beautiful floral centerpieces and all around me my idea of beauty and elegance came to life!

Thank you Val for your help through the year long planning process. I look forward to hopefully continuing to work with you and to help promote your business! Please feel free to use any part of my testimonial on your website!

Lastly, please take a moment to realize how your natural talent has translated in to something that creates a lifetime of memories for those you help! Thank you again! We are grateful to have found you for our special day!

As the MOB - my daughter's wedding was the most spectacular with Valarie's flowers - all the colors were in the "sunset" range.The bridesmaid's colors - between their dresses and the flowers knocked your socks off, the pew and altar flowers were amazing and the centerpieces were so beautiful, bright and cheerful. My daughter's bridal bouquet was so special with those colors mixed in with the white roses, and white mini-cala lillies. The mixtures of colors in the photos made for some really bright, super shots. Valarie was wonderful to work with and seeing her and her work at the bridal fairs was so much better than just looking at photos. She is a treasure, listening to what my daughter's vision was and making her wedding a very special day.

Valerie at A Love's In Bloom was the best florist I could have had at out wedding. Her flowers and designs were absolutly beautiful, and the colors and designesshe helped me put together were wounderful. I was also glad she was able to put together a very beautiful arraingment for my sister's memorial as she passed 3 months before the wedding and Valerie was not just there for the flowers, she was like a friend and there for support. I felt like she was a true friend who wanted us to have the most incredible day, and was truly caring about our loss during the planning of our wedding. If I ever need flowers for anything, she is the only Florist I will return to, I reccomend her with the highest of Praise. Don't worry, you will get all the support you need to make your day beautiful. :) Carolyn Richmong Married 7-31-10

I worked with Valerie on my Old Hollywood themed wedding. By using a few pictures and ideas that I provided Valerie was able to create a beautiful vision!!! She incorporated black feathers with shiny stones to create a fabulous feel for the wedding. She also understood my budget and was flexible with me sharing great tips that ended up saving me quite a bit of money!! She was very professional, kind, flexible and was willing to work with my rather meager budget. Valerie arrived on time and was genuinely interested in the details of the wedding and my sentiments. I would highly recommend her for any event needing floral arrangements. I have now had the wedding arrangements in my house for 2 days and it has my house smelling wonderful!! Thank you Valerie!

There are no words to express how gorgeous my flower décor was on my special day. The moment I walked into my reception hall I was mesmerized by the transformation. My centerpieces and all my beautiful arrangements were beyond my expectations. Valarie is an amazing woman to work with. She’s honest, sincere, and professional. If you looking for someone who can take her time to sit with you and bounce floral ideas back-in forth then Valarie is your florist. Valarie is flexible and patient with her brides. She met me a few times at our home and even at the reception site to make sure everything was perfect for our June 26, 2010 wedding at Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, CA. Tell, this day, all of our guests and family members still talk about our beautiful arrangements and all the amazing orchids that I had as a bridal bouquet. Thank you, Valarie for making my wedding day romantic, beautiful and exceptional.

Valarie and I looked through a bunch of pics and I let her know my likes and dislikes which made it so easy! Communication with Valarie throughout my engagement was easy and effortless. She also went above and beyond for me to ensure we were working within my budget. She also did a few last minute arrangements for me which was fantastic. I received SO many compliments on my gorgeous flowers, my bouquets were the most vibrant purple I've ever seen!

Valarie is an amazing florist. I gave her a photo of the bridal bouquet I wanted and she recreated is perfectly. In fact, her version was even better than the photo I gave her! The flowers in all of the bouquets were all very fresh and gorgeous, and they were all constructed very well (I never would have thought that would matter, but the bouquet of one of my friends who was recently married started falling apart during the reception! Valarie's bouquets were all tied up very nicely and held it together all night.) Her prices are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the work she does. I highly recommend Valarie to any bride!

Valarie was fabulous. Her prices were the best of everyone I called. I was a little worried with 'seasonal' selections of flowers for my dark blue and white flowers, but the arrangements were just beautiful! I had her do the arch spray with ivy garland, my bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, boutineers for groom/groomsmen/dads/officiant (it was my husband's uncle), corsage/boutineers for our moms and a flower basket for the flower girl. They turned out beautiful! I was thrilled with what I picked up and I love the flowers in all of my pictures.

I had a little trouble finding her house (I didn't want to spend the extra money on the delivery and set up fee since it was on the way from my parent's house to the site), but she answered promptly and came out to the street so I could find her.

Definitely recommend Valarie! She's professional and has been in the business a long time. I loved my flowers! They were blue which isn't quite as common... and they were amazing!! Thank you so much!

Val is a wonderful person to work with. I love her creativeness. I knew what I kind of wanted when we first met, but she brought my ideas to life. She was very flexible. We had a last minute need for an additional corsage the day before the wedding and she had no problem taking care of it for us. It made my wedding day flowers the lease stressful part of my day =) The reason I gave a 4 out of 5 on quality was because a few of flowers on my bouquet, and my bridesmaids bouquet kept falling out. However, we did do fun jumping pictures that didn't really help them stay in their holder. They were easily put right back into place and no one even knew. They were beautiful!

Valarie's prices are fabulous! She can get flowers at prices better than warehouse prices! I cannot tell you how relieved I felt when she told me the price for what I was envisioning - SO AFFORDABLE! I had given up hope that I would be able to afford beautiful, professional flowers until I met with her!
Valarie is also very flexible and responsive to requests and changes. I really appreciated this in the weeks leading up to my wedding.
However the day of my wedding is when things kinda fell apart. Valarie had let me know that she had a family function to attend on the day of my wedding and her assistant with "years of experience" would be doing my wedding flowers, and I guess some things didn't get communicated to her.
My MOH bouquet was the wrong color, the ceremony flowers were ok but arranged exactly how I had told Valarie I did not want, and the roses for the cake were not fully open which I had requested.
However my bride's bouquet was beautiful, lovely, top quality, and smelled like a rose filled garden. I loved my bouquet and I received many compliments about it. And no one noticed or commented about the other flowers at all, me and my MOH were really the only ones who noticed.
At the end of the day, my goal was to have the best "Value for Cost" for my flowers, and that is what I received. And Valarie ended up refunding me the cost of my MOH bouquet which was very nice of her to do so.

Valarie was the most professional and accomodating vendor I worked with for my wedding. Having to please two very different sides of the family on a tight budget seemed a daunting task, but meeting with Valarie laid all my fears to rest. Not to mention that of my mother and my mother in law, who went to my consultation and very strong ideas of their own. Valarie was able to not only advocate for me on what was my day, but also to make everyone happy in the process. On the wedding day, March 15 2008, I was absolutely bowled over and delighted by the absolutely beautiful flowers that Valarie had created for my special day. The flowers were fresh, fragrant and exactly what I had dreamed of. She had a fantastic way of directing traffic for us while passing out all of the personal flowers and pinning on countless boutineeres. All of this before she left to set up my reception, which was all candlelight, flowers and elegance. Kudos Valare, I can not thank you enough for making all of my dreams come true and being an absolute joy to work with. Not to mention you were able to provide a fantasy for me on what I was told by other florists would be an impossible budget. I highly recomment A Love's In Bloom!!!!

Working with A Love's In Bloom was very easy. Although I was planning my wedding from the other side of the country, communication through email was seamless and scheduling a meeting within the short time frame I was in the Bay Area was convenient. Valarie was extremely responsive to all of my questions and concerns expressed through email.

On the day of the wedding, the flowers were more beautiful than I could have imagined. The one difficult aspect to working with A Love's In Bloom is that I did not see a good sample of what I wanted prior to the wedding so I had to trust that the flowers would be what I had talked Valarie through. But I was pleasantly surprised with how she captured exactly what I wanted. The bouquets and the railing decorations were absolutely gorgeous and the table settings were so elegant. Valarie is an excellent listener. She nailed it! The flower delivery was on time and absolutely professional. I would definitely recommend her services.

I was excited to use Valerie because she seemed so reasonable. I liked what i had seen at the bridal fair as well. I was completely at ease with her until my wedding day. I felt like i paid a lot of money and didnt hold back on expenses coordinating with my venue. They of the wedding she tried putting everything off onto my cordinators including flowers on my cake, piecing together my centerpieces and putting down the gutter petals down the isle and on head table. I paid $150 delivery fee for my florist to do this, not pass the buck on. Needless to say i didn't get petals at all. She brought a small zip lock baggy if a couple flowers down the isle way, mind you i paid $200 for gutter petals. My 4 flower girls didnt get petals at
all and my head table got a couple left of cheap flowers from my center pieces here
and there. This left my table very blah and
boring with just a white table cloth. My flower girls were upset. I also ordered a couple wrist corsages and every single one 4 total feel apart. Didnt even make it to the ceremony. My mother in law was picking them up meeting her son down the isle. My bouquet was the size of my bridesmaids. A little disappointed. Overall i loved my colors, flower choices and bouquets were beautiful. I think maybe my order was to much for her to take on. Very upsetting.

A Love's In Bloom responded with the following comments:

Sad face here! Week befor the wedding I spoke with coordinator she asked if there was anything I needed from her day of wedding I said juyst put petals down the aisle,(She said no problem),day of the wedding I spoke to the coordinator 3 times about petals as it was very hot and we did not want to put them down to early and have them look like potatoe chips, she asked me to put them in the refrigerator with the cake. Which I did. The week after the wedding I received a message from the bride saying she was more than a little disappointed as there were no petals down the aisle or for flower girls. I called the owner of the venue and she stated the petals were still in the fridge. In addition even though I did not feel this was my error the bride was given a substantial refund because I did feel bad. It is not at all unusual for a coordinator to put down petals if weather requires it to be done closer to ceremony.

The bouquets and boutineers were perfect, everything that we had hoped for. However, when it came to the church decorations and the center pieces for the reception, we were dissapointed. We were told that ivy would trail down the front of the head table, but when we got there the ivy was small and basically looked kind of wimpy. I was under the impression of thick full green ivy along my head table and especially around our center pieces. Also, our centerpeices were tulips that were supposed to be submerged in water in a cylinder vase. The water barely came half way up the vase and it didn't take long for the flowers to look wilted over. In the church, again we were supposed to have ivy trailing down every other pew, but when we got there the ivy was like the reception. Very wimpy. It barley came half way down the pew, it was no where near being full and vibrant green like we were expecting. It unfortuantly just looked cheap. Valerie was very professional though, she was very nice and definatley accomodating to any changes that I made. Her flowers were beautiful, and she did an awesome job with the bouqets.

I was excited to use a A Love's in Bloom for my wedding after seeing her work and hearing she was the reccommended vendor for David's Bridal, but I was highly disappointed with what I recieved. My color was off and the flowers kept coming out of my bouquet. It was a real let down for my wedding and when it came time for my pictures I didn't even want them in the pictures. It's not that the bouquet wasn't pretty, it just wasn't what I was promised.

I am responding because I do not think this review is from a client of mine. I searched my database and have 2 grooms named William (one is not getting married til Nov. The other was married 7/7/12 my staff dealt mostly with the brides father and he was ver helpful and in charge, and seemed very pleased with everything. The day of the wedding both the brides father and a bridemaid signed off on thr order (it states tthe order is correct and in good condition and i accept resonsibility. The father of the bride returned some rental prop. at that time he said everything was wonderful. I have had no concact from any brides this summer requsting any type of refund regarding problems with flowers,Very surprised!
