My fiancee and I met and saw Cristina's floral arrangements at a bridal show at the Queen Mary in Long Beach last August. We loved her arrangements so much and we were so happy to know that she lived within 5 minutes of us that we booked her as our florists for our wedding almost immediately. She's so sweet and has awesome ideas. Cristina was also able to work within our budget as well...thank you for such great advice...you come highly recommended from Eddie and Nicole.

The first time I met with Cristina, she was so patient and kind to me; I had no idea what I wanted with the flowers for our wedding. I did my research and met with her a second time so that I could better communicate what I wanted. You can tell when you meet with Cristina that she takes her work very seriously and that she loves it. She had lots of photos and examples to show me, which helped me communicate my vision to her. Planning with her was easy. On the day of our wedding, she seamlessly set up and delivered our flowers, and they were gorgeous. It was like she knew what i wanted even when i didn't. Bring your pinterest board to show her!! Highly recommend her for any event, she was just lovely.

My budget for flowers was modest – I didn’t want to spend a lot, but I didn’t want to go the route of fake flowers either. Cristina was easy to work with, her prices were competitive and she was flexible with last minute changes (I added in an extra table at the last minute and she was fine with adding a centerpiece for that table no extra charge and she also created a complementary arrangement for the sweetheart table).

Cristina had a family emergency a few days before my wedding, so her team took care of putting together and delivering the flowers for my wedding. My parents created some of the plants / décor for the cocktail area and they were fine with helping set those up the day of the wedding along with the centerpieces they delivered.

The centerpieces created by Cristina’s team for my wedding reception turned out great! They were pretty and elegant - which is what I was hoping for. However, I have to say that I was disappointed with the boutounnieres we received. I requested succulents for the boutounnieres of the men in the bridal party and succulents with some small flowers for the women in the bridal party as well as the groom. The boutounnieres were smaller than I thought they would be and were also falling apart within a couple of hours after our bridal party put them on. I was particularly surprised that the succulents would fall apart so easily as I’ve always thought they would be much hardier than flowers to begin with. In hindsight I probably should have asked for an example of what the boutounnieres would look like.

Cristina offers very reasonable pricing on her services since she works out of her home. She is very knowledgeable and can make recommendations to the type of flowers to use if you show her a picture of what you want. I wanted very specific additions to some things which she beautifully put together (like crystals on our chuppah) but other things that I specifically mentioned were not done (putting lace on the centerpiece jar). Even though we had verbally spoken about some of the things just make sure that Cristina puts it in writing as that is what she will refer to the day of. Other than that, I would recommend using Cristina as the arrangements were beautiful and costs were reasonable.

After our wonderful experience, we recommend Cristina to all of our friends who are planning their weddings. She does amazing work at a very reasonable price.

Based on recommendations we had received, we met with Cristina at her home office. She was so warm and friendly, and helped talk us through the different options. We had some ideas about what we wanted, but she had the expertise to help guide us to executing our vision. She also had a wonderful portfolio of prior work that helped us see some possibilities we weren't previously aware of. She walked us through the pricing and drew up the service contract that day. She was easy to communicate with in the time leading up to our event. After we dropped off the vases we supplied ourselves, she worked directly with our Wedding Planner to coordinate the set-up.

On the day of our wedding everything looked beautiful. They had wreath of flowers draped over the gazebo where our service was held, which was transferred over to our head table for the reception and looked amazing throughout. All of the bouquet's, boutineers and vases turned out just as we had hoped. The flowers Christina provided provided the perfect accent to our special day.

I would like to start this review by saying that to this day, I have still not met in person or spoken on the phone to Cristina, and that's just crazy to me! My spouse and I live in Texas but are a same-sex couple, and since Texas is afraid of gays, women, and accessible healthcare, we knew that we were going to need to marry out of state. We are both born and raised in Long Beach, California, so we knew that is where we wanted to go.

Since I did not live there, I knew I would have to base my decisions purely off reviews and work of mouth. I took to Yelp and other online resources and sent e-mails to about 10 florists. From the beginning, Cristina responded instantly and directly; with some vendors they would not give a direct answer to a question, but Cristina always did. Her quotes were accurate, she was always friendly in her e-mails, and was an amazing help!

I had a Pintrest page of flowers I liked that I sent to her, told her what colors I wanted it in, and she made it work! On the day of she showed up and delivered everything, set it up, and brought extras of the groomsmen / groom boutonnières and of the mother / grandmother corsages. The centerpieces were exactly what I wanted and at the end of the night everyone wanted to take them home!

Without ever meeting her, talking to her on the phone, or seeing any of what my flowers were going to look like before the day of, I can say Cristina is one of the best vendors I have ever worked with in my entire life. I am someone who prefers e-mail communication and Cristina always got back to me the day I sent her the e-mail, if not within an hour or two.

Cristina, thank you for everything! If I ever need anything in Long Beach again I will contact you. Thank you for helping make our wedding day perfect!

Cristina's wedding flowers were absolutely gorgeous! Everything from the beautiful bouquets to the boutonnieres to the amazing centerpieces...I was sooo impressed and thrilled with the way everything looked! The centerpieces were exactly what I had envisioned! Breathtaking! Everyone loved them and those who won and were able to take them home were beyond happy! :) I loved my bouquet as well - just what I wanted. I can't say it enough - Cristina is amazing! She works with you and she gave me a fantastic deal. Her flowers are outstanding quality, and she makes whatever you can afford look incredible. Nobody would have guessed I spent what I did on my flowers. They all looked so classy and elegant, and the centerpieces were large and full of fabulous blooms. I am already in the process of recommending her to friends who are getting married. Cristina's flowers are the best!!!

It was approx 3 dozen roses, hand tied with crystals through out. My brides maid bouquets were loverly as well. I had wonderful ceremony and reception flower decor for a great price.

Cristina did an amazing job with all the flowers used in the wedding. From the ceremony (arch, flower balls) to cocktail & dinner centerpieces. My bouquet was also beautiful. She even made a wreath for the flower girl's hair. I met with her a couple of times and she was able to combine just the right flowers and colors to get the vibrant look that I wanted. She is also very affordable. I highly recommend Cristina's Flowers!

I only needed bouquets, bouts and corsages since my aunt was doing my centerpieces as a favor to me. I had met Cristina at a bridal show and loved her work. I went in there and knew what I wanted. I was shocked at the price she gave us, way better than I expected. It was half of what I expected to pay! I added/changed a couple of things a week before the wedding with no problem at all. The day of the wedding she delivered the flowers to the Marriott on time and they were beautiful and evenbetter than I envisioned them. Great prices, beautiful flowers, easy to work with=)

Cristina was awesome! The flowers were beautiful and I absolutely loved her creativity. I'm not much of a flower person and pretty much had no clue what I wanted, but working with Cristina was so easy! She helped me choose all the floral arrangements and gave me suggestions to work with. She was also willing and able to work with last minute changes to our order. Cristina was extremely professional and her prices were great! She delivered flowers to the hotel and reception venue promptly. I cannot recommend her enough! Thanks, Cristina!

We Used Cristina's Flowers . Cristina works out of her home so her prices were amazing! I met with five other florists and she blew their prices out of the water. She even made us a trial centerpiece for free before we booked her! On our wedding day the flowers looked beautiful the only reason I gave them and A- is because some of the bouts started to fall off as the night went on. She also didn't tie my bouquet the way I wanted, but it wasn't a problem. The flowers were beautiful and I absolutely loved her creativity.

She was even early to our venue and came back after the ceremony to move the ceremony flowers into our reception room, which were placed amazingly! Cristina also provided our chair sashes for the best price I could find, with no extra delivery charge!

Lovely, amazing, beautiful flowers - exactly how I envisioned them. We had a limited budget for flowers and centerpieces and the quotes we got for what we wanted were well over $1,500 and up. Cristina beat those quotes by several hundred dollars and delivered flowers that knocked us and our guests out. We received numerous compliments about them. She works out of her home and only does weddings and special events, so you don't have to pay extra $ to cover the overhead that you would with a regular "bricks and mortar" flower store. She buys her flowers directly from the flower mart and advised as to what was in season and would hold up well on a hot day (we got married in early September). Her sample book had several dozen styles and color schemes to choose from but we ended up choosing our own style of bright, bold, tropical colors which she arranged beautifully. She and her staff also moved the ceremony flowers to the reception without missing a beat. Best of all we took the arch flowers and my bouquet home and spritzed them with water every day and they lasted an additional week!

The flowers were affordable and not over stated. The quality we received was on par or better than the other vendors who would have cost us twice as much. Cristina was more than willing to take our suggestions but also able to supply ideas when we were at a loss on the type of flowers we needed/wanted. Everything was set up perfectly, she truly managed to bring my description to life. Many people have an idea of what they want but can't articulate it. She was able to take my scattered decisions and create the floral arrangement I've always wanted.
