I can not thank Deanne with Bella Fiore enough for the awesome job she did for my daughter's wedding in Long Beach. The flower arrangements she did for the rehearsal dinner and wedding were simply gorgeous!
So many guests commented on how beautiful the flowers were. Deanne made working with her so easy especially since we were planning the wedding from Texas. I would highly recommend Bella Fiore . You won't be disappointed. Thank you Deanne!!

Deanne is a very nice woman and my wedding flowers were really pretty. She made exactly what I wanted. Also when we went to her office to see a sample flower that she made, she gave it to us for free, even though that sample flower was big. She was like "Just take it! That is yours" We were like "Wow really!! How nice!!" I was impressed.
But one thing that we were not satisfied with her service was that her response by emails were really delayed... Even though we emailed her, she didn't email us back for about one week.
As a result, she made beautiful statements and little bouquets for the chairs along the aisle runner at the ceremony, the dynamic classy sweetheart table flower and center pieces on the guests tables at the reception. I liked them very much and we had an amazing wedding!!

Our wedding day floral arrangement was absolutely amazing! Deanne understood exactly what we wanted and matched our mental image flawlessly. The end result turned out to be exceptional, but at times I did feel like there was a lack of communication. My wife and I are happy we chose Bella Fiore and would recommend them to others.

Bella Fiore made our floral selection for our big day incredibly easy. We held our Wedding in Southern California but we are from Washington, DC. I am also an event planner so I have high expectations! We gave them a basic idea of what we were looking for prior to meeting in person for sample arrangements and selection. The center piece that was presented took our breath away! It was beyond perfect with the most unique and balanced collection of flowers and greens just as we requested. We even asked for a few modifications and that was not a problem at all. Of course, the true test is after selection several months prior to the event, will you get that same product, quality and design? The Answers is YES! With a final review over the phone since we were long distance and an exchange of photos to confirm everything, I arrived at our event space and nearly cried at the perfection and consistency of each and every centerpiece/arrangement. How they carried through from the Ceremony, reception, cake table and dinner tables was absolutely incredible. The biggest challenge was saying good bye to the arrangements since we live cross country we could not take one with us. So we took lots of pictures and enjoyed them while we could on our Honeymoon. Thank you Bella Fiore for completing our Black Tie wedding with incredible quality and talent!

We used Bella Fiore because she was local and was within our budget. She was also referred to us to check out by a friend of mine. We had issues with our first trial run for centerpieces. She used flowers I told her I hated. It was like she made something that she would want at her wedding. She felt bad so she made a second one which is what we wanted. In order to avoid any confusion going forward I made a list for her of what I wanted in my bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets, our tall centerpieces, small centerpieces, and our ceremony site pillars. Day of the wedding comes and she brings these great looking bouquets, but they are not what I asked for. They have flowers in them that I didn’t ask for and some of the ones I requested were not there either. She made the mothers wrist corsages wrong, but had extra boutonnieres. The ceremony pieces were double the price of our large centerpieces, but were half the size. Everything was very pretty and people loved them, but it was not what my husband and I wanted. She did follow up to see how we liked the flowers. When i told her what we were upset with, she responded back with an e-mail that was not professional. If you like to make sure that everything is done correctly and how you asked for it, then don’t use her. If we had to do our wedding over, she is the one and only thing we would change. Use someone else.

Deanne at Belle Fiore was a pleasure to work with and helped make our dream wedding a reality. From our first meeting with Deanne, we were 100% confident that our flowers would be absolutely perfect. She has an incredible knowledge of flowers and designs which made us feel like our flowers would be unique to our wedding. Deanne also has a vast array of baskets, boxes, candles, votives and vases that we were able to use to tie our full vision together. We loved our second meeting, where she made a mock-up centerpiece, so we knew exactly what we were getting a few weeks before the wedding and we were able to bring it home with us to show our family! On the day of our wedding, Deanne was extremely prompt and efficient when delivering our flowers (in buckets of water so they were extremely fresh) and helping the groomsmen with their boutonnieres. Then she headed to the reception venue and set everything up and made sure it was above and beyond what we had expected. We really enjoyed having Deanne as our florist and would be proud to refer her to anyone who asked!

At our first appointment we loved Deanne, she acted genuinely interested, caring and convinced us she would take care of our flower needs. I must say most of the flowers she did do for my daughter’s wedding looked great. We had a lot of compliments on the flowers. Our problem with her is she didn’t do what was in the order. She also apparently doesn’t read the order when ordering items for the wedding since she missed some of our main items. What really upset me that day more than anything was Deanne’s unprofessional attitude especially right before my daughter’s wedding ceremony. The first thing was she came in to the bridal room and my daughter asked her how everything was looking at the ceremony site she was to get white fabric and a flower statement piece that we had ordered and she said with an attitude “oh was I supposed to get the fabric and oh I forgot about the statement piece, I guess my work isn’t done here”. I couldn’t believe that she had forgotten such a big item since this was a big deal to us as we had stated to her in our previous appointments. At this point though she still had 3 hours but to our horror she never fixed anything. She never decorated the cake our coordinator had to do it. The arrangements from the ceremony were to be brought up to the reception, however since Deanne was nowhere to be found, the venue had to do this so they were at least an hour late to the reception. Throughout we have been very nice to Deanne even with her huge errors and although she had plenty of time that day to fix these errors she didn’t, so we are very disappointed in her services and feel she acted unprofessional. We would not recommend her services.

Update: I received an email from Deanne, the owner of this company that said if I do not take down my low rated review, she will get an attorney involved!

Deanne is awesome. Super helpful in making sure you are within your budget. She throws a lot of extras in with your package. My florals were exactly what I wanted and she even ordered special mercury vases just for my wedding since that was what I had in mind.

She is a mommy and does this business solo with the help of family and friends....that's why her pricing is soooooo competitive. Keep that in mind because she does need more time than others to respond to emails. Once she does, she is all over what ever you need.

Deanne was not very good about returning emails and answering questions/concerns before the wedding, and even though I sent her pictures, she made my sample completely different from what I wanted. I was a little concerned about everything, especially after reading some of her other reviews. However, the day of my wedding when I walked in to the venue I was speechless! The arrangements were perfect and exactly what I wanted. Everything she created looked beautiful! She did forget to bring the flower girls hair wreaths, which I felt a little upset about since the girls were so excited about wearing them, but other than that, everything was beautiful and amazing!

Deanne is a great person to work with!! I had no idea where to even start with choosing flowers that would compliment and suit my taste. Deanne put something together and nailed it! My flowers were absolutely beautiful and really enhanced my wedding.

GORGEOUS! Deanne created thee most beautiful bouquets and decor for my wedding. I showed her a picture from a magazine of this bouquet I loved and she re-created it. The colors were stunning. Deanne is so sweet and wonderful to work with. The flowers are a huge part of creating the ambiance you want so it's so important that you choose the florist that fits you best- I can't imagine her creating anything less than perfect.

Deanne and her team at Bella Fiore are amazing! Bella Fiore came very highly recommended from a friend who had recently gotten married. I met with Deanne and looked through her work and I signed her up immediately. I didn't have a strong vision for what I wanted the flowers to be - I just knew that I wanted a bright, lush feel. Deanne perfectly understood what I was going for and made tons of helpful suggestions. She met with us a few months before the wedding and made some beautiful samples for us that were ours to take home and admire. We had a few tweaks and ideas for changes. Deanne incorporated our suggestions flawlessly and dead on. On the day of the wedding, Deanne and her team were at our venue even before it was open to us. They rushed in and got right to work. By the time I arrived with my bridesmaids, almost everything was set up. The reception room was gorgeous. Deanne used mixed centerpieces - some with beautiful miniature tree branches, and some without. The contrast added great variety to the set up. She also added beautiful, colorful flower petals to our cake, and lined the aisle as well. The statement pieces at the alter were gorgeous and perfectly fit our outdoor garden ceremony venue. During the reception, they flanked our table and made for some great pictures. But my absolute favorite thing of all was my bouquet. It could not have been more perfect, and was complimented by the bridesmaid bouquets. Bella Fiore also supplied a number of other fabulous decorations such as Chinese lanterns. Deanne also suggested that we use small potted plants as our favors - they doubled as our table card holders, which was great! Overall, I really cannot say enough good things about Bella Fiore and Deanne. She was incredibly helpful, artistic, and just a genuinely nice person. We were very lucky to work with her, and would recommend Bella Fiore without reservation!

Words can not express how happy I am with the job that Deanne did for our wedding. I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go with. I did know the colors & type of flowers I wanted to use. I gave Deanne total creative license. The flowers were amazing! I received compliments all evening. In fact, I am still hearing about how beautiful the flowers were. Needless to say there were some very happy guests...the ones who took home a centerpiece!

We all know that weddings can be very stressful. Especially for a bride planning her own wedding (this was me). Deanne made the process easy & worry free. And she delivered!!

Without any hesitation, I would recommend Deanne & Bella Fiore.

Simply put...BEAUTIFUL!

Deanne is fabulous! She has beautiful taste and was so gracious to work with us on a tight budget. I had a difficult time putting my vision into words for the flowers, but she helped me every step of the way and the result was more beautiful than I ever imagined. When I walked into the venue the day of, by heart skipped a beat and I had to remind myself to breathe because the flowers were so amazing. Deanne was also extra patient with my "over-involved" mom (love ya' mom!) and I really appreciated that. Bella Fiore is awesome. Thank you Deanne for a wonderful experience!

I hired Bella Fiore for my wedding last Friday and I received so many compliments from my guests. The flowers were gorgeous! I’ve had bad experiences with florists in the past so I was skeptical going in, but Deanne was very accommodating to everything we asked for and went above and beyond our expectations. We simply gave her a color scheme and the “feel” we wanted for our wedding, and she came up with some beautiful designs. So creative! Even my husband’s aunt, who is an experienced florist in New York, took notes and photos so she could share with her design team back home. The flowers were all so fresh and held up for days afterwards (my bouquet is still looking good 6 days later!). I highly recommend Bella Fiore if you want your guests to be wowed. Thank you, Deanne and team!

Deanne did such a great job during my consults, she is extremely creative and unique and is very cost effective. I was so excited with the ideas she came up with and the way everything turned out. The a couple exceptions- after I booked, she was very slow to respond to emails, I would send her ideas for my bouquet and centerpieces and she would ask me if I had any ideas or pics of ideas during my consultation and she had never even read my emails. Everything turned out great with the exception of the fact that she completely forgot the flowers in my cocktail area. The vases were suppose to have kiwis in them with flowers on top, but there were no flowers just kiwis in water :( my mother and I have followed up with her several times (several is an under statement) to be reimbursed for this (which she agreed to reimburse us) and we have yet to hear back (my wedding was in August, it's now November).

My fiance, Branden, and I interviewed at least 3 florists for our wedding. I had something quite specific in mind and I relayed my vission to these florists. They all said they understood what I was describing but only Bella Fiore put my vission into reality when it was time to present me with a sample. Bella Fiore then exceeded my wildest expectations when they came to deliver the final bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony site flower decorations. My husband even mentioned that the best part of the wedding were the flowers! Thanks Deanne for impressing my new husband. I guess now he knows where to go for all of our floral needs!

Deanne was incredible from start to finish! I had to put all my faith into her b/c I really don't have the first clue about flowers but I still wanted something unique and, of course, beautiful. She blew me away! She included flowers I never even knew existed. My coordinator at my venue, where weddings are held nearly every weekend, said it was refreshing to see something different.

Beyond that, she was reliable and I just felt really comfortable trusting her with the creative direction of my flowers. My budget was also limited to say the least but she worked wonders.

I can not say enough about how HAPPY I was on my wedding day because of Deanne.

Bella Fiore was recommended to us by our wedding coordinator, Trini at Nozza studio. After our photographer, this was our next wedding vendor to meet. And we didn’t need to meet any other florists after this - Deanne’s energy and fun attitude were exactly the type of “feeling” we were looking for at our wedding, and we knew her personality would show in all the flower creations she would put together for our day.

Working with Deanne was really fun. I love big flowers, like: zinnias, peonies, spider mums, bells of ireland, and ...the list goes on and on. After sharing all of this with Deanne (who took amazing notes), as well as notes on the colors, she developed my first sample. She worked with me to sort through the flowers that she used, and we fine tuned the list to get it much closer to what I would like for the wedding. She even made me a second sample to confirm that she knew exactly what I was looking for!

Two weeks before the wedding, we went over the order list and made some changes (our wedding count went from 100 to 140, so we had a few changes to be made). Deanne was very helpful in coming up with creative ways to add more, and yet add little to the overall budget. I will always be grateful for her help in these last minute details.

The day of the wedding, it was clear that we had the perfect florist. Deanne and her team at Bella Fiore made my favorite flowers into beautiful wedding displays, table displays, and miscellaneous cheery floral touches throughout the ceremony site and reception area. Our flowers were gorgeous, and how she built the displays were even better. Mason jars hanging from the chairs at the ceremony site, rose petals lining the aisle in the perfect shades of pink and orange, and our bouquets were absolutely beautiful.

Bella Fiore was amazing. Now I just need to plan another event so I can work with Deanne again!

Having Deanne do all our flower arrangements was one of the best decisions we made in our planning process. We were referred to her, and from our first meetings, we knew we were in good hands.

She worked easily within our set budget. And in the end, everything looked amazing: bouquets, ceremony flowers, table flowers - literally everything.

Even our guests were commenting on the flowers the night of and day after about how great they all looked.

Deanne was responsive to our email and calls, accommodating the day of the wedding and just easy to work with in general. Highly recommended!

Deanne from Bella Fiore is fantastic!! She did the flowers for our wedding at the Ebell Club in Long Beach on 2/26/11, and I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. When I first walked into the venue on my wedding day, before all the guests had arrived, and saw how beautiful the flowers were I almost started to cry!! Deanne exceeded all of our expectations and gave us the most fabulous wedding day. My bouquet was exquisite. Deanne was so nice, easy to work with, and really accommodating in every way. Her prices are also very reasonable considering the high level of work she does. I would highly recommend Bella Fiore to any bride who wants the best, most beautiful flower arrangements on her special day.

I absolutely loved Bella Fiore. I got married in November and wanted a Fall/Thanksgiving themed wedding. I explained my general idea to Deanne (owner/Stylist) but did not have any idea what type of flowers or arrangement I wanted. After getting a general sense of my style, Deanne came up with some amazing designs for the centerpieces and bouquets that were simply perfect. Even the men’s boutonnieres were gorgeous (I got so many compliments on those alone!!). Deanne has an amazing eye for design and is extremely creative. She was responsive to my questions, fair on the budget and incredibly helpful. I never had to worry about a thing. I can not recommend Bella Fiore enough!!!

I hired Deanne because she was local, had worked at our wedding venue & I liked her energy. Unfortunately she disregarded my requests and executed her vision for my wedding and not mine. This was not only disappointing but caused quite a bit of stress prior to walking down the isle.

There were many specifics she ignored, one example was the groom's boutonniere. I asked for an ivory rose and provided a picture of a tasteful, masculine looking boutonniere. She dropped of a pink peony instead and my husband hated it! She also forgot boutonnieres for the two fathers and the corsage for my husband's 101 yr. old grandmother! My MOH & coordinater had to quickly make these by cutting flowers from the centerpieces and wrapping them in ribbon from presents. My mother's corsage was so top heavy it fell apart shortly after the ceremony and she ended up just taking it off.

I had requested 2 pillars covered in ivory fabric to be at the front of the isle with small arrangements on them. I offered to provide the fabric but Deanne assured me that she had it. On the day of there was no fabric on the pillars, they were made out what looked like wood scraps and completely exposed. I was horrified! All photos taken during our vows have these in the background and they are not pretty. Deanne later told me that she thought I would appreciate the "rustic wood" look!

My bouquet was pretty but NOT what I requested. I asked for pink garden roses and peonies & gave her two photos that I loved. She dropped off a mostly ivory bouquet with roses and dahlias. She had seen the dahlias at the flower market amd thought they would look great in my bouquet so just used those instead. That was her vision, not mine.

I could go on and on, but will wrap this up by saying DO NOT HIRE Deanne if you want YOUR ideas excuted and everything to show up.

My mother's corsage was so top heavy it fell apart shortly after the ceremony and she ended up just taking it off.

I had requested 2 pillars covered in ivory fabric to be at the front of the isle with small arrangements on them. I offered to provide the fabric but Deanne assured me that she had it. On the day of there was no fabric on the pillars, they were made out what looked like wood scraps and completely exposed. I was horrified! All photos taken during our vows have these in the background and they are not pretty. Deanne later told me that she thought I would appreciate the "rustic wood" look!

My bouquet was pretty but NOT what I requested. I asked for pink garden roses and peonies & gave her two photos that I loved. She dropped off a mostly ivory bouquet with roses and dahlias. She had seen the dahlias at the flower market amd thought they would look great in my bouquet so just used those instead. That was her vision, not mine.

I could go on and on, but will wrap this up by saying DO NOT HIRE Deanne if you want YOUR ideas excuted and everything to show up. Read less

Deanne is great! She had a lot of experience working with my hotel (Long Beach Renaissance) so she took care of everything in the planning process for me. When I first met with her, I didn't really know what I wanted for flowers but after many meetings with Deanne, we came up with a game plan and I put all my trust in her. The flowers turned out phenomenal!! They were absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend this vendor!

Flowers were perfect! We gave them an idea of what we wanted and they did not disappoint. Easy to communicate with and very professional in every aspect. They were every bit as good as their website indicates through pictures of previous weddings, and worked within our budget perfectly. We would definitely recommend!

I am usually not one to write horrible reviews but I do not want anyone else to go through what I did on my wedding day. I was in tears when I saw my bouquet... I was very optimistic at first when I met Deanne. The work she produced was beautiful. I am not denying that. I thought she was someone that could make my vision for my wedding a reality. Then one day she disappeared. She didn't return any of my calls or emails for about 2 weeks. I was horrified. I had already paid my deposit and I didn't think I could afford to move on to another florist... Eventually, she picked up one of my calls and claimed she didn't know that I was looking for her. I decided that I would try to make this work. She had a good chunk of my money and it was so close to the wedding date... She created a sample centerpiece which was really pretty. I had wanted white dahlias for the centerpieces and burgundy mini calla lillies for the bridesmaids and a dark dahlia bouquet with other dark flowers mixed in for my bouquet. I also paid $500 for her to set up my candy buffet at the reception. On the morning of my wedding my bridesmaid handed me my bouquet. She told me that the florist dropped them off and left. I thought there must have been a mistake. This did not look like my bouquet. The bridesmaid bouquets didn't look right either. I wanted dark reds and these bouquets were white and pink. They were pretty but wrong! I tried to call Deanne all morning and day before the wedding but she didn't pick up my calls. I couldn't believe she would drop off the bouquets without showing them to me. I called the reception venue to see if I could find her there but she had already left. The coordinator at the reception venue was concerned. She had informed me that the florist had gone but she had forgotten to set up the candy buffet before she left. I was so upset. I couldn't believe how so many things could go wrong because of one person. I got married carring a bouquet I hated. Something no bride should go through. Once I came back from my honeymoon, I emailed Deanne. She told me that she didn't return my calls because she didn't want to bother me on my wedding day. Unbelievable! I asked her for a partial refund and she agreed to it. But weeks went by without a check in the mail. I kept emailing her to request my refund check. She didn't respond or send anything until I told her that she is really giving me no choice but to go through small claims court. That day she responded to my email and I received my check a few days later. This whole situation was partly my fault. I should have switched to another florist when she went missing for two weeks in the beginning. That is a sign of her work ethics right there. Again, I hate to bash Deanne and her company. She seems like a nice enough person. I just do not want anyone else to go through what I did.
