We were referred to Natalie by Vista Ranch and Cellars. She was very professional and friendly upon our first meeting and very flexible about our budget. She nailed the color scheme and had some lovely vessels. The main, family style table for the wedding was stunning, as were the pieces for the cocktail tables. The ceremony pieces were simple and lovely. However, there were a couple bouquets in the reception area that looked quite rushed and a bit wilted. My biggest complaint and something I feel is very important to a wedding planner (myself) was her severe lack of communication. Getting hold of her was like pulling teeth! I could tell she was annoyed when I needed a second meeting to go over details and make a few changes. On the day of the wedding, she seemed unfriendly and barely spoke 2 words to me. Frankly, it was weird. Lastly, the person she used to put up our chiffon draping did not do it correctly the first time and when I told that person they needed to be hung differently, she told me Natalie had given her the wrong information. This same woman was very polite and professional and fixed the draping immediately. There is a discrepancy here as Natalie says it was her source who misunderstood. I have to say, because I had the same difficulties with the venue, but even worse, I believe it may be a problem with the attitude of vendors in Merced, in general. Too laid back, lack of "customer first" attitude and no urgency to return calls or emails. I've been a business owner and was raised my a very successful retail father. I know what consistent, professional, detailed and follow through practices are and write reviews to not only inform future customers but, hopefully help the business become more successful. That is how we grow. Mediocre was never used to describe the Fortune 500!

Natalie's floral design for our wedding at Evergreen Lodge in Yosemite was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined! Our plan was simple: get married in a gorgeous, natural setting and keep decor super simple. Against stark white tablecloths, Natalie's flowers brought to life an energy and happiness that still make me smile. Each arrangement was carefully selected and thought through. It was apparent how dedicated and talented Natalie is at what she does. I absolutely loved my bouquet and everything else was perfect. If you're getting married anywhere NEAR Natalie, I highly recommend her. She is a dream to work with, not only with stunning flowers, but also timely emails that are very helpful during planning. I emailed her a mock-up/moodboard of colors & flowers that I liked and she did the rest! Thank you, Natalie!

Natalie was amazing! She brought my complete vision to life and I was blown away by every single floral arrangement, centerpiece, and bouquet the she created. My bridal bouquet was INSANELY gorgeous, so much so that I am having it preserved so it will last forever. All of our interactions whether it be in person, text, or email, always made me feel like I didn't have anything to worry about. So so so impressed with Natalie and all her work and I would absolutely use her services again.

Natalie was amazing! In addition to providing our flower arrangements at a great price, she advised us on all elements of our wedding decor, giving our venue a cohesive look. She knows what she is doing and provides great feedback, and served as a valuable resource throughout the whole planning process. I couldn't be happier with our flowers, the design she implemented and the prices she charged.

I wish I could give an even higher rating because she made my wedding so amazing- all from Yosemite! and I live in Orange County! It was no easy feat but she did it in less than 2 weeks and basically took the original quote we had- which was over budget and we were forced to skimp on what we really wanted- and did all that we wanted PLUS UNDER budget. actually worked with the low range of what we said our budget was- she is awesome, flowers were beautiful. I can't think her and her amazing local associate, Katie, who basically made the long distance florist relationship possible- AND with just under 2 weeks to go! Wish I had spoken to her a long time ago I would've saved myself a lot of stress just knowing she was on my team! I can honestly say Natalie saved my sanity in one simple phone call/email- love her!!

My husband and I just got married this past Saturday, September 24, 2011, and Natalie Galasso was our florist and wedding day coordinator. Our ceremony was held at the Yosemite Valley Chapel and our reception was at the Ahwahnee Hotel. I can honestly say that it was our dream wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect and that's a lot coming from a perfectionist + very detail oriented couple! Natalie did a fantastic job orchestrating the entire event. Everything that she laid her hands on turned out beautiful, exceptional, and phenomenal - our flowers, cake pop display, gift/sign-in table, trail mix bar, shawl display, cake...everything! We met with her in person a few times, and we communicated extensively through email. Her business is a one-stop shop for those planning from afar - she helped coordinate our party rentals (linens, chairs, chargers), and we were able to rent vessels from her for our trail mix bar. She really connected with my husband and I and she really captured our vision for our perfect wedding. We can honestly say that Natalie is the best in the business and is a total client advocate. We can't thank her enough or say enough good things about her.

Natalie is absolutely amazing to work with! She is extremely creative and a talented designer. She took the few ideas I had and turned them into my dream wedding! The one thing I did not worry about during the entire planning process was my flowers. I knew whatever Natalie did would be amazing and I was right!!! I couldn’t have been happier with the quality of flowers, design and presentation. We received so many compliments on the work she did. I would highly recommend using Natalie for your wedding. She is the BEST of the BEST!!!

Natalie did a fantastic job for our wedding. We had a very particular rustic style we were going for - we got married outside in a meadow - and she was able to match the style of the wedding and the setting perfectly. Our guests were raving about the flowers and we absolutely loved them. Natalie's easy to work with and very talented - highly recommended!

Natalie did a fantastic job on cake flowers, hair flowers, bouquet, boutennieres and coursages for my wedding. I love succulents and she did that theme with giving it a polished look. I didn't want the "country" theme that is very much in vogue right now that everyone uses succulents for and she took the vague ideas I had and conceptualized them into a great look. I just had the Ahwahanee do their basic plain cake and she arranged flowers on it making it look like a million dollar cake! She even brought several different flowers for my hair to choose from. I was concerned when having my wedding in Yosemite and only going by the vendors websites since I live down in Los Angeles. Most of the florists looked very ordinary and Natalie is the one that is creative and gives you that unique, polished, modern look that you are going for. I didn't want it to look like I went to FTD to have it done!
