All I can say is wow! They worked with our budget for a 260 head count reception and ceremony. The ceremony and reception flowers were absolutely gorgeous! I've never seen the type of quality work that Passion Roots did for our wedding. And that is not a biased opinion!

Passion Roots created the florals for our wedding ceremony & reception. They were great to work with, in that, they really listened to what we wanted (vision and ideas). Shilhi is super creative & really talented at what she does. I was able to speak with her and show her some photos of what I like and envisioned, and she was able to pull together a "floral board" after our first discussion. I know that Shilhi tried her best to accommodate us and tried to give us what we want. I had made some adjustments after narrowing down my final decor and design, and based on those changes the price had gone up! I was really bummed about it, but luckily, Shilhi made some adjustments & suggestions on how she can still create the look that we were going for to the best that she could but it still surpassed our budget. What I love about Shilhi is that she is personable and easy to talk to. She is super creative! She is someone I trust to go & create something beautiful beyond my own imagination.I wasn't afraid to give her creative freedom. I was able to trust her & believe that I was in good hands. In the end, everything came out beautiful & gorgeous. From this process, I learned: 1 ) I have expensive taste, and 2 ) Flowers are NOT cheap in Hawaii. Apparently they get imported from the mainland, Thailand, and other parts of the world. One would think Hawaii would have an abundance of flowers... they do, just tropical florals! Not the ones you would typically see or use for weddings. If you are looking for a unique, creative and talented florist, I highly recommend Passion Roots! They do fantastic work & are creative geniuses! Keep in mind, Saturday is their Sabbath so they have to contract the installation if your event falls on a Saturday. Installation is an additional charge to the florals.

Loved working with Passion Roots. They were able to take the concept in my mind and execute it into something beyond gorgeous! My bridal bouquet was stunningly beautiful and exactly what I had hoped it would be! The bridesmaids bouquets were elaborate enough to be bridal bouquets too! Our guests were incredibly impressed by the floral centerpieces and thrilled when they heard that they could take them home! Would definitely recommend using them!!

Shilhi is amazing! From our first meeting, we fell in love with her. She has an amazing vision. We had a destination wedding and only had to meet with her in person once. I could see that she knew my vision from the beginning. The flowers for our ceremony and reception were flawless. I had so many compliments from all my guests. Too bad it was a destination wedding because we couldn't take any home. Good thing my coordinator and catering manager was able to take them home to enjoy them. I did keep my bouquet for the last 4 days of my stay in Hawaii and the bouquet was still flawless until the end (provided we kept it in some water). Shilhi also provided me peony florals for my hair. We had 2 but I never even had to switch it out. Everything was so perfectly done. I miss Shilhi!

I used Passion Roots for my June wedding on the North Shore of Oahu. They provided me with the most beautiful bouquets for both me and my bridesmaids. Flowers are expensive, but they helped me stay within my budget while creating absolutely gorgeous table center pieces and reception decor. Passion Roots was so helpful from start to finish and so professional I would highly recommend them for anyone getting married. Exceeded all expectations!

Shilhi and her team created such beautiful bouquets and flower arrangements and wedding decor for our recent wedding at Lanikuhonua. Passion roots really helped us to create the perfect floral vision and color scheme for our big day. She and her team really went above and beyond and even helped us arrange for toss petals and Shells which we placed along side our flower arrangements! Everyone at the wedding was impressed by the florals and we received so many compliments on them! We highly recommend passion roots to anyone looking for a wedding florist. We would definitely choose them again as they really exceeded our expectations!

i had a small budget for flowers and looking back i would have allocated more time, attention and funds to this important aspect of the wedding. i also recognize that they were most likely doing a favor for my planner, as her go-to flower vendor was busy.

that being said, i believe i fell for the lovely descriptions they had for their vision and that there was a discrepancy between the words and actual arrangements.

the colors were off (orange vs. coral) and the "bling wrap" on the boutonnieres fell off early in the day. my MIL ended up with a boutonniere instead of a wrist corsage and while nice, it was so heavy it kept falling off and left a hole in her dress.

they did throw in hair flowers for me as a complimentary gift and that worked out well because i wasn't planning on wearing any but they ultimately pulled the look together.

i'm not sure if we didn't provide the cake size but the flowers for the top of the cake (in lieu of a topper) were again, the wrong color but also too few for the size of the layer. looked a little off.

maybe i was expecting too much without putting in the effort but i was really hoping for the centerpieces to help transform the reception space and while i think it helped it really wasn't enough.

I talked to Shilhi of Passion Roots during our vendor selection process and loved her immediately! She has such a warm personality and I can tell in her voice that she loved doing what she does. We didn't book her then because she was not a preferred vendor of our venue and we would have had to pay extra.

We had another design/floral person who 1 month later ended up leaving the company without notifying us. We decided it was not worth even getting another person from that company. I asked both our planner and our videographer who they would recommend and both said Passion Roots right away so I decided to take husband with me to meet with her the next time we went to Hawaii. We both loved her and really connected with her.

She is such a creative person! We described what we wanted our wedding to be and she got it down perfectly. Everything was beautiful and all of our guests loved it!

Shilhi and her team are also very accessible. Her and Elana are very easy to reach via email (and even text sometimes). She is very mindful of our budget and she does't push things on us to get more and more stuff. Even when we went over budget with another aspect of the wedding, she was gracious enough to let us trim down stuff from the florals and design to make sure we stay within our wedding budget.
