John and his team did not disappoint. In fact, everything, from the bouquets to the centerpieces, were more beautiful than we could have dreamed of! My (now) husband thought we spent MUCH more on the florals than we did. He isn't the kind to care much about flowers, so impressing him is a big kudos to John! The silver containers were so elegant--far beyond what we had seen at other florists--and we also loved the linens and chargers that we rented through them. My bouquet was so beautiful that I'm having it preserved and framed in a large shadowbox--a BIG shadoxbox because it was so huge! John's work is not only beautiful but a great value as well. Even if there are hiccups and last minute changes, trust John. He will make it happen for you, and the outcome will be even better than you had wished for as was the case for our wedding!

John and his team at nBlooms are amazing. My flowers were exactly the way I described them to John months earlier. He was so flexible and easy to work with. Everyone should use nBlooms as their florist. I plan to use them for every occasion, no matter how big or small.

John is an extraordinary artist when it comes to flowers. He was the florist at two of my friends’ weddings (when the company was called KaBloom, now Nbloom), so I knew I could trust him to do a beautiful job with mine. And he didn’t disappoint. He worked within my budget, stayed true to the examples I gave him, and used gorgeous flowers in creative and interesting ways. I just loved how everything turned out.

I cannot say enough about John at NBlooms (formerly Kabloom), wow! My fiance had spinal cord surgery and was in the hospital for 45 days but wanted to go through with our wedding no matter what. I made some appointments with 3 florists and felt so at ease with John. Yes, I went by myself and was terrified :) but after meeting him, I booked him right then and there. I never felt pressured like I did at the other two locations and John listened to what I wanted.
Any questions that I had were addressed as soon as possible and the flowers were to die for, EVERYONE was asking where they came from.
We were not sure if my fiance was going to be able to walk down the aisle (beach wedding) when I called John the day before our wedding to to see if we could build an aisle, he did not panic but found someone immediately for me to do it. Our hotel ended up building it but we were so impressed with how much he cared to help us.
NBooms is the best, I highly recommend them!!!!

I made an appointment with John for a bridal quote for all the flowers to be used in my wedding. The appointment was fantastic. John had fabulous, extremely creative ideas, and I was so excited to work with him as my florist for the wedding. He said he would have a quote to me within one week. I was ready to book him as soon as I received the official quote.

The hard part has been actually getting the quote.

About two weeks went by and I never received the quote. John had said to call back if I didn't see it just in case there was a typo when writing out my email address. I called Kabloom to ask about my quote, very friendly mind you, and they said that things had gotten a little busy at the shop due to Gasparilla and Valentine's Day. Understandable. I said no problem, and John stated that he would have my quote to me by the end of the business week. This time, a month went by. I called back again to ask about my quote. Mind you, I'm still very hopeful, I would love to utilize all of John's creative ideas for my wedding. The girl that answered the phone said that she would find the quote, and email it to me that afternoon. Nothing. Another month went by. I called again, this time now I just want to know if my order wasn't huge enough to warrant the quote not receiving any attention. When I called, I still tried to remain very pleasant, but asked after my quote and told the person on the phone my frustration with the sequence of events. The stated that they had been very busy with weddings, and where sure to get to. I blantantly asked if they were too busy for my business. They assured me that they very much appreciated my business and would have John call back shortly to discuss my quote with me over the phone. John did call back, and I reiterated my frustrations. Again I asked if he was too busy for my business since it had now been almost 3 months since I met with him. He assured me he was sitting down that afternoon to go over all his past meetings with brides and knock out all the quotes that had become backed up in this busy season. It has now been 4 months, and still nothing from John or Kabloom...or now there new name of NBlooms.

Most of our flowers looked great! My bouquet was beautiful but my girls flowers were white and peach (or at least they looked peach up close) and the corsages also looked white and peach. Our colors were burgandy and the girls bouquets just didn't look right against their dresses. Also, I had given a swatch of our dresses to the owner so he could match up the ribbon to their dresses and instead we got a ribbon that was more purple which definitely didn't match the dresses. Our ballroom was beautiful and the centerpieces were perfect. Emails were returned in a timely manner but at two different meetings, the owner had someone else do it and I didn't know until I got there (and I had to drive an hour one way to the store).

Ka Bloom was incredible to work with. Finding a florist that was affordable, listened to what we wanted, but still was creative and unique was the hardest part of planning our wedding. My first meeting with John, he listened to my ideas and vision for the reception and on the spot he began coming up with ideas and suggestions that I would've never thought of. We discussed different aspects I liked and didn't like, and by the end of the meeting he had come up with 5 possible centerpiece designs for the mock up and a very reasonable quote just based on what we talked about. The Ka Bloom team were able to incorporate multiple centerpieces into the reception that were what I had wanted and some very innovative and creative ones that they came up with that I loved even more. The bouquets came out perfect! The flowers transformed the ambience of the entire to a very elegant and classic environment. We loved working with John and Ka Bloom and would recommend them to anyone.

He was always there to assist and even placed the boutonnieres on the wedding party. Our guests took more pics of the flowers than of themselves. Flower quality was amazing!!!

A beautiful garden wedding was our theme and KaBloom's talented and gifted florists exceeded our dream. The flower arrangements were absolutely incredible. I have never seen such beautiful flowers and arrangments as many of the guests had commented. KaBloom carried out our direction of our theme and helped us with professional advice that made our ceremony and reception one of the most memorable days we will remember. I'm glad we have photographs to remember the grandeur of this day and the flowers that made it even more special.

I honestly don't think I can explain how absolutely wonderful Jon at KaBloom was!! He was perfect from the beginning. The second I met him I knew he was going to be my florist. He asked that I describe my dress to him and after that he kept suggesting ideas that were perfect! I felt like he knew exactly what I wanted. He is the only vendor that I never confirmed with right before the wedding because I was completely comfortable with him. My mother in law kept calling him to ask him questions and he told her not to worry about it, let him do what he does and it will be beautiful. And it was. The flowers were stunning! He even used decoration from the outside ceremony to add to the reception inside. He was one of the nicest people I have ever dealt with. I will always use him for events from now on and recommend him to everyone I know.

I met with several florists in the Tampa area and John was the only one who said he could definitley accomodate all my requests. Other florists were hesitant to go with the type of flower I had chosen and just didn't listen to us.

Planning my Florida wedding from Colorado was a challenge and I was only able to meet face to face with John once. I gave him some photos that I liked as inspiration. He was also easily accessible by phone and e-mail.

The flowers were stunning - better than I had imagined. The bouquet was gorgeous and even lasted through the entire reception outdoors in the Florida heat.

We rented some palms through KaBloom as well and they were extremely flexible with our location's requirements that they be removed directly after the ceremony.

I would highly recommend them and would use them again.

They gave me 2 extra corsages I didn't order and charged me for them, but overall the flowers were beautiful. I think they were a bit more expensive than I would have paid if I had shopped around a little more. My bouquet lasted a long time and was much better crafted than any other I had seen before.

KaBloom Florist of Tampa responded with the following comments:

I appreciate the feedback and compliments from our bride. I am surprised she stated she received 3 extra corsages as all our agreements are documented in a very professional agreement [which is itemized and very discreptive] and maintained on file. All final committments are confirmed & final balances paid 30 days prior to the actual date of the wedding [we additionally touchbase the beginning of the week for any last minute changes] as we order directly from growers overseas to ensure freshest product and best pricing [as we do not go through "middlemen". If there were any issue with over billing this would have been addressed as I stand by our contracts.
