I initially fell in love with her charm and confidence. She had went over with me through pictures of how the flowers would look like. I shouldve known when she wasnt responsive to my emails. I had to email her twice to get one response. then the day of the wedding everything came to a surprise! The bouquets were about the only thing that looked decent. Everything else was pretty much a disaster. The chuppah wasnt done on time of the ceremony(she blames that on the venue) , the flowers she delivered was totally OFF from what we talked about and what I had asked for. Not only did she used the cheapest flowers, the size of the reception flowers were not even half of the size I had asked for .she charged me 125 for "large high centerpiece" and filled it up with mostly dark leaves to fill up the space n barely any flowers!!! there was basically the same amount of leaves as flowers! The little details we discussed, I realized she was obviously not listening. My theme was all pastel colors and asked for specifically roses and hydrangeas. no hydrangeas at all, about 7 roses, carnations!! and white daisies (I hate daises). Overall, the flowers looked so cheap, nobody even took the flowers home. Then when I emailed her about my dissatisfaction her response was I'm busy, your wedding is already over theres nothing I can do, "other florists wouldve charged you more than I did". Unbelievable. I wanted to use her because she was a family business I thought I was helping out. but honestly there's nothing I regret more than using Ga florals

"Amele, calls herself an 'international floral designer' - she is truly one in every sense of the word. In one of her trips to the Fiji Islands she came in time to decorate my wedding. She was exceptionally calm and went out of her way to decorate our wedding with elegant tropical floral displays. Her professionalism & flexibility was evident in how she conducted herself given the time restraints. She is just naturally creative & talented. I recommend her highly. Thank you Amele."
