Alena Jean came to me by two different recommendations- my caterer and a bridesmaid of mine. I am so glad she did. I met with her once, and didn't need to interview another florist. She was kind, and funny, and listened and took notes. I felt like she was listening to me, and listening between the words for the "feeling" of the wedding. I went into my wedding planning with a pretty clear vision of what I wanted - a garden party that was pretty, sophisticated, and not burlap and mason jars. But when it came to flowers, I was completely lost. I looked at thousands of photos online, I looked through Alena Jean's photo albums. I could clearly see things I didn't like, but there was never a bouquet that I loved. I started to lose my cool over it, thinking that if I didn't portray to the florist what I wanted, I'd end up with flowers I hated. Boy was I wrong. I had several email exchanges with Alena Jean abot what I liked and what I didn't like, and what about the flowers I didn't like. I felt like she really understood my vision, even if I couldn't put words to it. In the end, I told her that I trusted her experience as a florist. That was the best decision I made in the whole planning experience. On the day of the wedding, the first flowers I encountered were the girls' and my bouquet. They were exactly what I couldn't describe. It was so perfect. The centerpieces, the altar arch, the buffet table - all of it was so en-pointe to the feeling for the day. I have never said this about a person, but I really feel like she "got me." And that made all the difference.

I wish I had my pictures back! I had the most Beautiful Flowers I have ever seen! Better than anything I could ever imagine! Just unbelievable! This was the best thing I stumbled on! My hairdresser even commented on how beautiful the flowers were and said she's been to a lot of weddings and she thought these were the most beautiful bouquets she had ever seen! Wow! They were so pretty that I would seriously prefer another bouquet than a cake for our one year!

Alena was so great to work with! She did such an amazing job on our flowers - from my bouqet, to the boutonnieres, to our centerpieces, etc. They definitely one of my favorite parts of the day. I gave Alena a few ideas of what I thought I liked and she ran with them to create something WAY better than I could ever have imagined! She worked with my budget to create something absolutely perfect!

The flowers for our wedding were beautiful. I had made a keepsake bouquet for myself, however Alena Jean did all the remaining arrangements and made an absolute stunning arrangement for the pergola. We were married at Mavericks Princeton-by-the-sea. I just don't think you could get better and Alena Jean is a wonderful warm lady. Amazing.

Alena did the flowers for my wedding after I'd had trouble getting called back by the woman I'd originally hired. Alena was amazing. I was a bit frazzled and dealing with a smaller budget but she created exactly what I had dreamed of only better. She is a wonderful person and never made me feel bad thatI wanted low key flowers or that I had a strict budget. She was creative, imaginative, and kind. And she always emailed me back promptly! I can't say enough good things about her and the beautiful flowers she created for our wedding. I highly highly highly recommend her.

Alena was referred to us by our officiant, who gave a glowing review of her work. We went to check out the shop and Alena was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Looking through photobooks of past work, her flower arrangements showed a cute and quirky sense of design that was appealing to me. Prices were also very reasonable and competitive, which I was not expecting in Half Moon Bay. I gave a verbal description of what I had in mind along with some example pictures of what I liked and disliked. The flowers she delivered showed the same sense of style that I'd seen in the photobooks and matched what I wanted. The flowers were so cute and beautiful and the color combination of flowers was exactly what I had in mind.
