For almost 15 years I've been creating florals for events in both northern and southern California, not a day goes by that I don't love what I do. Each client inspires me to do better than ever before. I search for fresh and unique blooms, extradonary vessels, and my own touchs for one of a kind pieces. Using vintage and modern finds I create what works with the venue, clients personality, and overall look client desires. Read less

Laura was wonderful to work with. From start to finish despite the unusual situation, she was amazing.
I contacted Laura from New Zealand, requesting flowers for my upcoming destination wedding almost a year later, in San Francisco. All the planning was going to take place over email due to my location on the other side of the globe.

She was great. I paid my deposit, sent her piccies for inspiration, even sketched some designs which I sent through and mocked up versions myself. She took it all in.
We did a short 3 day reccie to San Fran a few months before the wedding to meet all the vendors and Laura travelled to us (we were pretty slammed with appointments) and met us in a cafe round the corner from where we were staying at very short notice which was such a relief. She made planning a wedding from the other side of the world a breeze.

On the day the boutonnieres were perfect, the bouquet was better than I could have hoped, the church flowers were lovely, the table flowers exceptional. Everyone complimented us on the flowers.
The hair dresser was over the moon that the hair flowers were wired "properly".

The only tiny thing that was a tiny shame was as it was so warm on the day, my sisters two flowers that I had her hold (not a full posy just two single long stemmed flowers) drooped as they weren't wired. She had to clutch them right at the top of the heads in all the photos which drove her a bit mental but really, that wasn't the end of the world. :)

Laura is amazing and I would highly recommend her in a second! She is extremely artistic with great ideas, so I felt like I was in good hands. She's very knowledgeable about what is available during different seasons, has a ton of pictures for ideas, and can work with whatever thoughts you bring to the table. She also gives different options in different price brackets, so there is flexibility in how much it all costs. I am very indecisive, especially when it comes to details like flowers colors, etc., and Laura was so patient with me! She is such a sweet person too. The flowers for the wedding turned out beautiful ... buttery yellow with shades of purple with greenery and herbs mixed in. A friend of mine getting married in December decided at my wedding to hire Laura for sure also after seeing how well my bouquets, centerpieces, etc. turned out!

We found Laura Miller through a recommendation from our photographer (who we loved). The first thing we liked about her was that she asked our budget immediately and kept it in mind during our initial consultation. She never tried to over-sell us or tell us that our budget (which was modest) was unworkable. (Another florist we met with never asked our budget, then sent us a crazy proposal that was quadruple what we wanted to spend!)

During our meeting with her, Laura asked what our vision was, what my favorite flowers were, what I didn’t like and assured me that these were what she would work with and/or avoid. She said wouldn’t choose anything else without checking with us or pick up something just because it was on sale. She totally got what we were looking for and executed it beautifully.

Laura’s creative vision is amazing! We were going for an Old Hollywood glam feel, and she really understood what we were looking for. We showed her photos of what we had in mind for centerpieces and bouquets and she recreated them with her own personal spin (and again, on our budget). She also had great ideas of her own, including adding feathers to our flower-girl bouquets, which I didn’t think I would be into, but ended up loving!

Overall, our wedding-day flowers were breathtaking. Our guests constantly commented that they would never have known our flowers were done on a budget because they were so unique and beautiful. And Laura was great to work with…she kept in constant communication and was dedicated to making sure our flowers were a reflection of our vision for the day. If we had it to do all over again, we would use Laura Miller in a heartbeat!

My flowers were so beautiful. Laura did a fantastic job and I'd highly recommend - mostly because she was able to deliver what I needed in not a very large budget. Working within a budget is so important but to do so and make everything so lovely is a terrific gift.

Laura did the arrangements for both our wedding and rehearsal dinner. Where oh where do I start? Let's start with the rehearsal dinner flowers.......... She did beautiful tall arrangements with branches etc-- textured, gorgeous, and unique. Wonderful!!!

For the wedding she did half tall arrangements and half short arrangements as well as extra large fabulous arrangements to flank the sides of the ceremony location, and a bunch of smaller arrangements for the bar, cocktail tables etc (and of course the bouquets, bouts etc). She worked with me to find gold vases that were exactly what I had envisioned for the table arrangements. For everything she did for us, she was very reasonably priced as well.

I deducted .5 of a star from quality of service for two very minor reasons 1. I wanted to avoid blush colors and stick with mostly creams/whites, but our arrangements ended up including quite a bit of blush (now this might have been out of her control--- maybe out of season, not enough available from her supplier etc) not sure; 2. I was under the impression branches etc would be used in our tall arrangements, but there weren't any. Again, not sure if this was out of her control, or if she made the executive decision not to because it wouldn't have looked as nice if they were included. In any event, at the end of the day, the flowers were absolutely stunningly beautiful and I don't think you can go wrong with Laura!

Laura did such a wonderful job on our wedding! I had asked her for a 'just picked' and natural look for our garden wedding and I couldn't be happier with how our flowers turned out. Our wedding also had the added complication of two sites for our ceremony and reception and she handled everything like a pro! I just couldn't be happier. Laura was wonderful and responsive from the day we first met. She is so easy to work with also has wonderful ideas. I hope you will choose to use her for your wedding too...you will be so happy you did!
