I wish there was an option to give more than 5 stars! Sam is truly amazing. I first worked with Sam for my sister's wedding in 2012. Sam was able to capture my sister's vision for her wedding beyond our expectations. Our jaws literally dropped when we saw the arrangements he created for her beachside wedding. Everyone at her wedding kept commenting at how gorgeous the arrangements were.

I just got married last weekend and the day after I got engaged, I emailed Sam to see when HE was available so that I could make sure to schedule my wedding when he was available to design the flower arrangements and bouquets for my wedding because he did such an impeccable job for my sister's wedding.

From a beachside wedding (for my sister) to a rustic outdoor ranch (for my wedding) Sam was able to capture both of our unique venues and personalities. He thinks of every detail ... From the corsages to the bouquets to the memorial arrangement that I wanted to remember my dad, Sam totally went above and beyond my highest expectations. He takes a simple idea and turns it into a beautiful masterpiece.

I used to think, "How important are the flowers at a wedding? Do people even remembers the flowers?" And then I worked with Sam and realized just how memorable and important the flowers and arrangements were. The flowers play an essential role in the wedding... They are an additional character to the whole event. And with Sam taking the lead, you are guaranteed to have a beautiful and memorable night.

I would never work with a different florist again unless I absolutely had to... I HIGHLY recommend Sam for all occasions! He will undoubtedly go above and beyond your wildest expectations!

We planned the entire wedding in only about 4 months and by the time I got to flowers, the wedding was only about 3-4 weeks away. I found Flowers by Sam on Wedding Wire. From the first email exchanges he was easy to work with, and I just had a gut feeling he was the right vendor for flowers. Through email exchanges, photos of flower types and arrangements, and phone conversations (since I was planning long distance), Sam helped me refine my ideas from “all I picture is red roses” to something much more unique and artistic. It was fun because, honestly, I had no idea what the finished product was going to look like until he delivered them the morning of the wedding, and I'm SO happy I didn't just end up going with all red roses (which was where my brain started since I had no idea about flowers). The boutonnieres were also cool and unique. Overall, the time, thought, and expertise that Sam brings to his work meant that flowers were memorable. There were a lot of comments from family members like, "Those look like they belong in a magazine!" and general positive comments because Sam’s arrangements were unique and different. He helped transform some of my vague comments (“natural California inspired,” “similar colors but varying texture,” “don’t let the flowers blend too much for bridesmaids so they actually stand out against their dresses” “I don’t just want a perfect sphere of roses”) into hand-tied bouquets with "eye-for-detail” touches like color-coordinated pins in the ribbon. If I ever have a formal event in the Los Angeles area that requires flowers, I would definitely use Flowers by Sam again. And I highly recommend him for other brides who might be like me and have no idea where to start when it comes to the floral details. (Side note) My mom loved the flowers so much, one of the first things she asked me the day after the wedding was for Sam’s phone number so she could thank him personally, and then she wrote him a review on Yelp.

Flowers by Sam is the absolute best!!!

Although I had a vision of the way I wanted the flowers to fit in with the overall design of my wedding, I had no idea how to make it happen. When I met with Sam, the only thing I knew for sure was the color palette for the wedding, and that I wanted peacock feathers included in the bouquets and centerpieces. I wasn’t sure how I was going to figure out the specifics, but there was no need to worry, thanks to Sam. He knew exactly what questions to ask in order to gain an understanding of what I had in mind, and find out what details I might like that I hadn’t even thought of.

When I saw the flowers on the day of the wedding, I was amazed. Sam had created arrangements that were detailed, unique, and fit my vision exactly! Everything was SO beautiful, and I couldn’t have been happier. I could tell that he had really paid attention to my thoughts and preferences, and then used his knowledge and artistry to create something truly special. My friends and family loved the flowers as well, and I heard many compliments. In addition to being a talented artist, Sam is also very responsive and professional, and such a joy to work with. My husband and I are extremely grateful that he was a part of our special day. If you are looking for a flower designer for your event, you should not hesitate to contact Sam!

Sam is, bar none, the BEST! I gave him a pretty tall order to fill -- provide me with flower arrangements for a wedding WITHOUT using any flowers. It was a themed wedding -- 1930s supper club -- and he rose to the challenge and then some. He was out scouring antique stores almost the very next day. He found the most amazing vintage postcards, letters, and skeleton keys to incorporate into the centerpieces. In short, he made the wedding one of the most memorable and beautiful ever. It also didn't hurt that he was the easiest person to work with. :-) His responsiveness is simply incredible. I highly recommend him to anyone for any occasion!

Working with Flowers by Sam was an awesome and worry free experience! As the bride I had lots on my mind and could not make up my mind on how the flower arrangements should look. Sam took my many many picture inspirations and was able to put into words what I was looking for after a few minutes of discussion. I also gave him a picture of a pergola that my parents had built and Sam was able to adorn it beautifully with flowers without having seen it in person until the day of. The end product was fantastic! I received many compliments on the flower and arrangement choices being detailed, unique, and absolutely beautiful, but couldn't take any of the credit because it was all Sam. =]

Sam is a gem!

Talented, creative, thoughtful, and professional to a T. He was an incredibly positive and calming presence for me not only at the wedding but throughout the whole process leading up to the big day. I was so grateful for his artistry and expertise.

He's very easy to work with. Although I only had a vague idea of what I wanted, we talked through ideas as he helped me narrow in on my vision. His flower arrangements were gorgeous. My friends and family were taken aback.

Sam takes great pride in doing a great job and ensuring I had a beautiful day. When he saw the venue, he improved upon little details that made a huge difference.

You're in good hands with Sam. I couldn't recommend him more highly.

We are so glad we partnered with Sam as our florist. We initially met Sam at the Pasadena Bridal Expo. Sam kept in touch with us and when it came time to look for a florist, we set an appointment. Sam is very flexible and made it very convenient to meet. We were doing a Farmer’s Market theme for our wedding (that’s where we had our first date). We brought magazines and some ideas to the meeting. We found Sam to be very patient (especially with me, the bride with a Type A & controlling personality) as well as an active listener. That is very important! You do not want a vendor to shove their ideas to you based on what they like. However, you also want your florist to be knowledgeable and be able to provide ideas and feedback when appropriate. Sam is very good in keeping cost within the budget. He made us feel comfortable in what we can afford. He listened to what type of flowers we liked, as well making suggestions as to what flowers would work in our budget, theme, and colors. Sam’s work of art complimented perfectly with the setting, rustic and vintage feel. Our friends and family thought the arrangements were beautiful and everyone was trying to take home the centerpieces. I love my bouquet (Sam provided a free tossing bouquet) and all the flowers for the wedding party. Sam also helped me with other details such as flowers and décor for the cake and tables without any problem or hesitation. Most of all, I think we really appreciated how Sam kept us in the loop and attended to our timeline, up until the day of the wedding. He’s very good with email and text (we had iMessage). At the end, I think of Sam more of a friend than just a professional vendor because of all the special little touches and attention to details he contributed to make us happy. Those are the vendors you know who are truly passionate and care about their work and YOU. Thank you Sam for your beautiful work of art and for making our wedding perfect!

Looking back at my pictures I still can't get over what a fabulous job Sam did. From the beginning Sam was great - we met at the venue before the wedding to go over what I wanted - he took pictures and measurements so he knew what space he had to work with. I sent him pictures of flowers I liked and he totally nailed the entire wedding!!! I still get compliments from people at the wedding about what an awesome job he did. All of my bridesmaids have dried their bouquets as a keepsake for the wedding. Sam will always be our "go-to" florist! He won't be able to get rid of us!

I met Sam at the Long Beach Bridal Expo. He caught my eye because of the beautiful variety of flowers he used in his pieces. Not your typical "roses and baby's breath" bouquet. He has a very unique aesthetic and had the most beautiful bouquets I had seen!

Sam listened to everything I thought I wanted (which was all over the board) and helped me create my vision. He sent me examples of flowers he thought would work, past pieces he'd created, and the day of my wedding, came into the room with the most beautiful bouquet I could have asked for! The mothers' corsages and the boutineers were perfect, too!

He worked with my budget and was extremely patient as I teetered back and forth with what I wanted.

I had such a great experience!

Not only is Sam from Flowers by Sam an incredible florist, his creations are not just standard bouquets and centerpieces- they are individual works of art. I first met Sam at a wedding expo and immediately feel in love with his ability to run with a theme – and being that I wanted a “Vintage Rock and Roll” motif for my big day, that’s exactly what I needed.
Sam took the time to sit down with my fiancé and I at the start, as I described our plan and how I was not a “traditional” bride in that I didn’t have specific “musts” or “don’ts” for flower types, but rather wanted to keep in a color palate and hit the theme. He continued to patiently go over even the tiniest of details over the course of the next 8 months, even as our ideas and theme evolved throughout the process. And the results were stunning – beautiful deep reds and purples, with a classy rocker flare.
I can truly say that Sam has not only an eye for design, but a passion for it, as he makes each theme his own in these creations. Not only that, but he is an incredibly caring and thoughtful person to work with, and you continually feel as if you are in the best of hands. I have already recommended Sam to several of my engaged friends and will continue to do so as well as call on him for all my future flower needs. Thanks Sam - I can’t imagine my wedding day without you!

Sam was the best stress reducer a bride could ask for! Anytime I emailed him with a question or idea, his responses were in my inbox the next day. He was extremely accommodating and would meet my (now) husband and I at a location near our home which was incredibly helpful when you have multiple wedding appointments on the weekends. I was a stress case about my flowers for some reason (seriously, flower nightmares and all) and he helped ease my mind by doing a mock-up and allowing me to make any changes that I wanted right before the wedding. His knowledge of flowers is amazing and he was incredibly conscious of our budget. The moment I saw my bouquet I fell in love and was even more enamored when I saw my reception room!! We ended up spending a little bit more than originally planned on our florals but in the end it was completely worth it and we would definitely recommend Flowers by Sam.

My wife and I just had a wedding on 10/12/12 and it was incredible. Sam had a HUGE part in the success of our wedding. We had a very limited budget for 80 people that included an outdoor ceremony as well as an indoor reception. Let me tell you why Sam was so freak'n amazing...

-He went out of his way to meet us and discuss what we wanted. He made amazing suggestions and ideas from his experience as well as his masterful creative mind. And incorporated his flowers and ideas into exactly what we were looking for.
-Sam went out of his way again to help us obtain a fire permit to allow for candles at our venue. With that he included a mock up of the centerpieces, which we were also able to take home afterwards as a preview of what was to come.
-Now this next one was very important to us which really helped us feel secure and prepared... He checked in on us constantly to see how things were going, if we changed our minds, what he can do to help, if we needed anything more. He did this quite frequently, which was very re-assuring and just amazing for another person to do that. He arrived as early as he could to the wedding to ensure everything was set up and to our liking. And he also came at the end of the wedding to make sure everything was cleaned up!
-He has a wonderful personality, very creative, very helpful, and a freak'n flower genius.
-Incredibly reasonable with price.....and he worked with our budget. He did what he could to make it fit our budget and exactly what we wanted.....and it was absolutely perfect!
-Finally, the centerpieces, the bouquets, the boutonnieres, the ambiance, and the main centerpiece (I wish you could have all seen this).....was AMAZING!!!!

Sam, we can't thank you enough for all that you did for us.....

Sam is WONDERFUL! He's definitely there for YOU, not himself. I loved how he was able to work with what I wanted and not just offering me what limitations he had, like what other flower vendors offered me. I don't even think he had any limitations! He delivered in a timely manner. He also offered me to call him for any emergencies that may have arised, from lost pins to damaged arrangements, and that he'd be there as quickly as possible to take care of it. The whole process was just perfect, from the consultation to the moment I walked into my reception and saw the most beautiful centerpieces ever!!! His work definitely awwed all my guests as well as myself :) I would definitely recommend his services to EVERYONE! He's professional and easy to work with which matters a lot to me. I think the flowers were the only thing that went right that day :)))

Working with Sam was one of the easiest things I did when it came to my wedding. He was so understanding and really listened to what I wanted when it came to my flowers. I felt very taken care of, from the minute we met up until I walked down the aisle with the beautiful bouquet in my hands. I couldn't have asked for more. Plus he worked with us within our budget.

Sam did an amazing job on a tight budget. I couldn't have imagined the flowers would be so perfect.

I asked Sam to make my bouquet to match my multicolored shoes and he did it, with such creativity and style.

Sam made our wedding beautiful. Everyone complimented us on the flowers.

It was obvious from when I discovered him at a bridal show that his arrangements are gorgeous and he's very artistic. Then when I had consultations with florists to choose one, Sam stood out for his years of experience and expertise. He was very cooperative about suggesting flowers within my budget, and offered creative ideas on how to decorate since I couldn't afford to do all the flowers I wanted to. I still think I should have gotten more flowers for my money, but that's just because EVERYTHING for weddings costs more than normal; that's the game of the business. Overall I was happy and I know I chose the right guy for my wedding.
