Barbara did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding. We agreed on style and color at a high level and then gave her creative freedom. The result was arrangements that were abundant, more beautiful than I imagined, and a perfect reflection of the style we planned. She was a pleasure to work with, had great attention to detail, and very reasonably priced to top it all off. I would highly recommend her to anyone, including my closest friends! Thank you Barbara for making our day come to life, perfectly and beautifully.

Barbara was the best. Easy to work with, flexible, creative--there aren't enough good adjectives. Most importantly, the flowers looked so beautiful. We were amazed at how well she "got" our desired atmosphere and she adjusted very well to a few DIY elements we provided. You won't go wrong in choosing Barbara Vakassian Florals.

I had lollipops in my bouquets and pixie sticks in my boutonnières-- how awesome is that? I would definitely recommend Barbara to everyone!!

We met with several florists (3 to be exact) and Barbara was the best fit for us. She fully understood the "look" I was going for and was SUPER accomodating with our desired budget. We set a $2,000 budget in the beginning, but once I was able to finalize all of our other vendors... we were able to work in an additional $1,000 into our floral package!!! The flowers were STUNNING!!

Barbara was great in giving me ideas to help keep me within budget, and throughout the entire process... I feel like she genuinely cared and was LISTENING to our needs. She is super flexible and we even did a web meeting to go over more photos of the different arrangements that I liked.

I can't recommend her enough!! I wish I was having another spectacular party, because if i did.. she would be the first person I would call to do the flowers!! I would probably say that her arrangements look FAR more extravagent than the price I paid and would definitely recommend her services to anyone!!

We met with several florists (3 to be exact) and Barbara was the best fit for us. She fully understood the "look" I was going for and was SUPER accomodating with our desired budget. We set a $2,000 budget in the beginning, but once I was able to finalize all of our other vendors... we were able to work in an additional $1,000 into our floral package!!! The flowers were STUNNING!!

Barbara more than exceeded our expectations and delivered the most beautiful, vibrantly colored arrangements for our wedding. When we originally met with her to discuss our ideas, I really got the feeling that Barbara listened well and left knowing exactly what we wanted. My bouquet was exquisite. Our table arrangements were just as I'd imagined. Barbara created a floral wreath for the gazebo we married under which came out so beautifully in person and looks just as beautiful in the pictures. I would highly recommend her to anyone that asked. She's very professional, creative and just a lovely person.

The flowers were beautiful and added a lot to the ceremony and reception. We went all out and she did the works: a flower arch for the altar, centerpieces for the tables, bouquets, boutonnieres, various decorations for the ceremony and reception. My favorites were the flower pomanders, basically big flower ball pom-poms. I gave her the color scheme for the wedding but didn't have a lot things I knew I wanted specifically. She was able to take my general colors and ideas and turn it into something wonderful. I was very pleased, everything was perfect.

I wish there was a more then 5/5, like, 10/5. Barbara was awesome! I told her what I wanted to spend and when everyone else said no...she said yes. We talked about what I wanted and she gave suggestions, was open when I did or didn't like her suggestions, and in the end....the result was so much better then I ever imagined. She took what I said and flew with it and I still get comments about how great my flowers and centerpieces were. I stopped telling people what I spent, because no one believed she could of done if for that!

Barbara was excellent. She listened to our thoughts and offered her unique touch and ideas. The flowers turned out beautifully. Simple, yet elegant and modern. True to what we wanted but better than what we could have imagined. She also did a wonderful bouquet. The price was competitive and she offered to pick up the flowers and donate them to the local hospital after the wedding.

Barbara listened to my needs and wants, and was able to deliver on my wedding day! She was able to create beautiful arrangements that fit our theme and personality. When I walked into my reception site and saw the arrangements I was so happy because they came out better than I imagined! I really appreciated the fact that Barbara was able to take my vision (with very little direction from me) and deliver without forcing me into things I did not want. A florist you can trust, that respects what you want, and that delivers. For a no nonsense busy bride, she was a floral godsend!

We hired Barbara Vakassian to do the flowers at my sons' wedding in June of 2010. the floral arrangements were gorgeous! exactly the color scheme that the bride wanted. Barbara went out of her way in creativity and special touches. All of the guests commented on the flowers and they left a lasting impression. She is concise, on time and and listens to your needs. I subsequently hired her back to do flowers for a large harvest party dinner and she was brilliant, using not only her flowers but foraging wonderful branches and fruits from our property to create a true harvest feel. It was beautiful and will hire her for all of my events, big or small.

Barbara is a very talented florists. She really has a great eye for design and does beautiful work. The flowers for our wedding were lovely; in particular, the chuppah she design was an absolute show-stopper. We received so many compliments on the chuppah and I couldn't stop staring at it during the ceremony!

I thought I had clearly communicated my vision for the flowers to Barbara, but we may have had a miscommunication along the way, so I didn't end up with exactly what we had wanted. The flowers were beautiful, just weren't exactly what I thought we had discussed. We asked for orange, corals, peaches, blues and greens. We ended up with fairly neutral arrangements, with blues, greens, a very light peach and pops of yellow. Again, beautiful but not entirely what we expected.

Again, Barbara is a talented florist, her price competitive and our flowers were lovely. I would definitely work with her again. I'm just passing on some advice to future brides to make sure you clearly communicate your vision to your florist to ensure you get exactly what you have in your mind.
