Anne was so wonderful. I have already had so many comments on how beautiful my flowers were, and two people have asked for her info for their weddings. She is absolutely flexible and we mainly worked via email so she could show me the images. The flowers were the most beautifully spectacular orchids I could have ever imagined.

Pros: Anne worked with my budget and helped me work with seasonal varieties; online budget planner was very helpful; simple and straight forward consultation and pricing; colors were exactly what we talked about; arrangements were cleanly put together and delivered on time.

Cons: Arrangements were smaller than I had expected and perhaps seeing samples in person would have been helpful to set my expectations accordingly

Overall I feel like I got what I had asked for and wish that I had taken a little more time that day to enjoy my flowers.

I LOVED Flowers by Anne! I searched all over the internet for a florist who had their prices posted online, and she did! Her prices are amazing! Anne did a great job with my flowers, and they looked beautiful and exactly we had discussed. She was flexible with me when I needed to change my order at the last minute. Highly recommend!

We were referred to Anne from a family member who had hired her for their wedding. Prices were reasonable and the flowers were beautiful. Easy to work with. I think the only downfall was we couldnt see the center pieces prior to the wedding because business is done out of house versus a store. So when the flowers were delivered they were smaller then what we had expected and most of the flowers didnt open til days after the wedding.

I was so impressed with Anne and the work she did. When we had our meeting she really listened to what I wanted and the look I was going for. Her prices were low and the flower quality was great. She supplied the vases and the urns we needed for the ceremony and reception

I had gone to several bridal shows and had seen Anne's work, it was beatiful. I knew when I went to the second bridal show that I wanted her to do my flowers, but I wanted to get a couple other estimates before I made my finally decision. I compared the estimates and her's by far was the lowest. She made special arrangements to meet my mother and I since my mom was in town for a short time and Anne was going out of town. We looked at her portfolios, discussed what I was looking for, and came up with a plan. Flowers to me are one of the most important factors of a wedding, and my flowers were absolutely beautiful. I had a fall theme for my wedding; and wanted flame calla lillies, green cybidium orchids, circus roses, and green spider mums as my theme flowers. She worked with me and suggested other flowers to compliment these. I was so surprised the day of my wedding I couldn't believe the quantity and the quality of the flowers. She truly helped make my wedding day a dream wedding.

Anne was great to work with. She was very responsive to emails, had lots of options to choose from, and was very flexible (I made half a dozen changes to my order after we signed the contract and she was totally fine with it). The flowers turned out beautiful and exactly as I had ordered them.

Flowers by Anne was actually one of first floral designers I contacted (via the website's awesome online estimator tool), but when I didn't hear from her, I assumed that she was booked. After several disappointing experiences with florists (one who said my floral choices were not good, one who no-showed for the consultation, and one who had a family emergency), I decided to follow up with her again and emailed her. I am so happy that I did, as sometimes things get lost on the net (that was a good lesson in following up!).

From the follow up email, Anne has been amazing! She expedited our estimate and held the date for us until we could meet with her for the personal consultation. At the consultation itself, she really understood our personalities and aesthetics and was able to translate it into really gorgeous designs. She was very helpful in making suggestions (e.g., adding green gladiolas to the ceremony decorations), guiding our decisions (e.g., using colors that pop instead of using white in the bridesmaids bouquets since their dresses were so bold), and offering us the best options for our budget (e.g., floral arrangements instead of floating flower heads). Her enthusiasm and passion for flowers even got my husband, Louie, excited about flowers - especially when she introduced him to Kermits (green button mums), which became the connecting element of our design. You can see a picture of our centerpiece here:

Because we had a big bridal party (a matron of honor, a maid of honor, 2 best men, 10 pairs of bridesmaids & groomsmen, 6 pairs of sponsors... etc. etc.) and over 200 guests, we were worried about our floral budget, but Anne was able to get us *under* our 3K budget with 11 bouquets, a pomander, 13 corsages, 24 boutonnieres, 2 large ceremony arrangements, 2 medium ceremony arrangements, 11 low centerpieces, 10 tall centerpieces (in pillar vases), 2 small toss bouquets, and cake flowers - that also already includes 3 delivery locations, tax, and setup.

It was really easy communicating with her, and she was always prompt in responding to my emails and answering all of my questions. I just looked at my email box and I have about 30+ emails between the two of us! That is a true testament to how dedicated, patient, and awesome she is =).

The most amazing thing about Anne is that she really cares about meeting her clients needs and is very flexible with changes. In my particular case, she even allowed us to change one of our deliver times the week before the wedding, which saved us even more money. We had originally scheduled her to deliver the flowers to our reception later because of an event going on before ours (which was cancelled).

If you you have a tight floral budget, but still want beautiful flowers, I would definitely recommend that you go to her website, look at the galleries, and fill out the free estimate. She has a wide range of designs & styles that aren't even shown on her website (which already has a *lot*).

You can look at some of my flowers here (pictures taken by one of my bridesmaids, Tarah):

I'm so sorry to put a negative review on here, but I hated my flowers. I know colors of flowers can vary and may be unpredictable, but what I got the day of my wedding was very different from any pictures I showed Anne. While I asked for green and pink flowers, my centerpieces showed up much more red and yellow. My bridal bouquet was probably the worst of all. I contemplated not walking down the aisle with it until my bridesmaids made me a new one from scratch. Anne's prices are much cheaper than many other florists, but I believe her style is outdated. Side note: Anne did the flowers for my best friend's wedding and they turned out okay- maybe my experience was not normal, but I would be weary if your wedding flowers are very important to you.

Anne Nounou, owner of FlowersByAnne, was a dream vendor – from her detailed and timely email replies, to her knowledge of flowers, to her wholesale prices. I got the most gorgeous plum and mauve bouquet of calla lilies, cymbidiums and roses that perfectly complemented our wedding’s lilac color scheme. You can see an image of the bouquet here:
http://www.flowersbyanne.com/cgi-bin/list.cgi?action=detail&fID=891

For under $700 during high season (June), I also got two bridesmaids’ bouquets of calla lilies, 8 boutonnieres and corsages, and 10 centerpiece sets, each consisting of 3 glass vases of varying height, colored gemstones, and 3 long stems of purple mokara orchids (these were apparently flown in from Hawaii). The girls all loved their flowers, and we got so many compliments on the contemporary yet elegant centerpiece.

Considering that callas and orchids are among the priciest wedding flowers, we could have paid a lot more for the quality, freshness, and generous sizes of the blooms had we gone to one of the retail vendors with the nice shop fronts closer to where we live on the Peninsula. Anne operated out of her home (in Oakley when we first met her, but she is now in Martinez), and I got a feeling it was pretty much a one-woman show, so she helped cut a lot of overhead and middle-man cost out of our bill. On wedding day, the flowers were ready at the hour Anne had promised, and when she took them out of refrigeration they looked as fresh as can be. Her taking the time to label each corsage/boutonniere helped us not to get them mixed up (she was super organized about everything). Finally, she is also quite flexible should you decide to change certain items after you first sign the contract. We found out rather late that our venue did not allow for open votive candles, so we asked Anne if she could swap out that part of the centerpieces, and she happily offered to replace them all with handfuls of loose orchids for us to scatter around the vases – turned out a lot prettier and greater bang-for-our-buck!

Go check out what Anne has to offer – she’s worth the drive, if you are coming from SF / the Peninsula. She offers a free online estimate when you describe the quantity and types of flowers you want – and she has plenty of pre-designed suggestions on her website. The estimate I got came pretty close to the final amount that I paid. All in all, I highly recommend Anne!

Anne is an absolutely wonderful person to work with. I was so lucky with all of my vendors. Anne did all of my flowers at such a great price. Her website is one of the best I've ever seen, she gives free online estimates and is just so easy to work with. The flowers were absolutely beautiful that day!

Anne knows her stuff, very affordable. She will work within your budget. My wedding was on a hot day and even with fragile flowers (gerbera daisies) they never wilted.

When I picked Anne, I thought I was going to get a full handheld bouquet. When I looked at my bouquet on my wedding day, it did not have the full stems wrapped in ribbon, but a plastic holder wrapped in ribbon. Definitely not what I expected, but still the flowers were nice. I also got married in the heat in August so I can't blame the florist for some of the flowers wilting. Also you get what you pay for. The cost was a lot less than most florists so I shouldn't expect greatness.
