Shells Petals was our florist for our wedding and we were extremely satisfied with all of our flowers. Michelle was so great to work with. She was always quick to return my emails and phone calls. I told her what our wedding colors were and she created every arrangement so beautifully. She also made an extra stop at our hotel to deliver our bouquets and boutonnieres on our wedding day at no extra charge. She delivered and set up all our arrangements at the venue exactly as I had envisioned it. I loved working with her because she was so friendly and she was always focused on what we wanted on our special day. Her prices are very competitive as well. I highly recommend her for any wedding floral needs!

Thanks again, Michelle, for helping make our wedding beautiful!

Shelly was amazing, from the initial sit down to the day I sent my father to pic up our flowers she was always friendly and prompt. I had a sunflower theme and wanted all the flowers to be sunflowers, she managed to make them the star of the show!! She worked very well with our low budget we had! I definitely recommend this company!!

Shell is FANTASTIC. Our flowers were absolutely gorgeous. Shell also helped us find other vendors and she gave us insiders tips about our venue, The Pierpont Inn. The flowers were a very reasonable rate and Shell stayed within our budget. Shell is an artist and a wonderful person. I highly recommend her for any event.

Shells Petals was amazing! She was extremely flexible with meeting times and looking at all my ideas. She have her opinions and made my wedding even better.
This past winter was a very dry season but she promised me I wouldn't be disappointed with the lack of supply. I wanted bright and wild flowers and she made each table and mason jar absolutely beautiful.
While I was getting ready and dressed- there was problems in the reception room, she stepped up and told me she would take care of it. When I walked in the reception room- everything looked perfect.
I would recommend Shells Petals to anyone and I know I will be using her soon again :)

I have nothing but good things to say about Shells petals. The consultations beforehand went smoothly. I didn’t have much of a vision and with just telling them my colors and theme they pulled together the most gorgeous array of flowers. Everything from the boutonnieres to the corsages to the bouquets to the arch piece was just gorgeous. I couldn’t be happier with how the flowers turned out and would highly recommend shells petals to anyone and everyone as a florist.

Shell is absolutely amazing!! I did not have the pleasure of working directly with her because my husband wanted to take over the task for me! I was nervous for several weeks when he told me he was going to handle the florist and just "G.I.D." (get it done- haha). If I would have known it was Shell I wouldn't have had a worry in the world. I showed up to the venue the day of the wedding and was just stunned to see the arrangements. To tell you the truth, the flowers were even more beautiful than I could have imagined. I would recommend Shell to anyone!! and of course my husband gets credit as well :) I will try and attach photos as soon as I receive them. THANK YOU SHELL!!!

When my florist bailed for my 2-day Catholic/Hindu wedding, Shell's Petals came to the rescue! Our friends recommended Shell's Petals so we met with Shell with only about a month before our wedding. We had a modest budget for floral because we were having two weddings and Shell worked with us to be within budget. She uses quality flowers and I was able to use my bouquet for both days of my weddings.

Michell is a pleasure to work with. She understood what we were looking for on the centerpieces matching the colors of the flowers with the wedding colors. She was very flexible with last minute changes and additions making it easy on us. We had to change the delivery time to the day before because of pictures of the room needed to be taken a day ahead and she accomodated our request with not problem. The flower were fresh and stayed fresh to the next day for the wedding still looking like she had just put them together. I would recommend Shell's Flowers to anyone looking for a professional who understand what it takes to make the difference on such a special day. We did not need her day off coordinating services but I am a witness that she will work very hard to make sure every detail the bride wanted would get done to the brides specification.
Shell's petals is the professional I would use everytime.

Shell is amazing! I came in for a meeting with her with pictures I gathered and flowers I liked. She gave suggestions as to other flowers she thought would go well with them. I told her she had free rein as long as everything was my wedding colors. On the day of the wedding she arrived very early so we had the flowers for pictures and she put extra flowers on my cake and cake table, which was unexpected. My family and I were very happy with her throughout the planning process and on the day of.

I had my wedding outdoors in Malibu at Calamigos Ranch during the fall and I couldn't have asked or wished for a better florist for my wedding. Without even meeting Shell in person, or going to her shop she was able to completely create the exact vision I had for my wedding. Not only based on my taste, but also the theme and season. All I had to do was describe my personality and send her 3 examples of things that I liked and she had it perfected! She also worked so closely to my budget and didn't sell or recommend something I didn't need. Everyone loved the flowers and they made my wedding photos complete. She was on time and even decorated the top of my wedding cake for me exactly the way I wanted it. All in all it was a smashing success! And her knowledge and expertise really made me feel comfortable....all her advice regarding what she thought would be best really paid off. She and her team are true professionals and I would send any of my closest friends and dearest family to her for any of their needs.

Shell was affordable while still giving us everything we wanted as far as flower decor and wedding party flowers. Everything was fresh looking and put together amazingly. You will not regret hiring her for the job.

'Shell was great to work with! We met a few times to plan out the floral arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, etc. and she definitely knows her stuff! On wedding day I was a little surprised to see that the bouquets did not have all the flowers we had agreed would be in them, but she really outdid herself to make them even more beautiful than I had expected (instead of red and orange dahlias we got some amazing red-orange stargazer lilies - my other favorite flower!). No matter what, 'Shell will come through for you and make your event amazingly beautiful!

Thank God I found Shell's Petals! I was on a VERY tight budget and was embarrased to even present it to Shell at our first meeting. But she was so professional and enthusiastic, I was thrilled and relieved to have found her. I had met with two other florists before Shell, and left each of them with a feeling of disappointment in their suggestions. I had accepted that due to my small budget I was going to have to settle with something I really didn't envision. HOWEVER, after meeting with Shell, I was excited and confident that she connected with me and totally understood my vision for my special day. I cannot convey my excitement and appreciation when I saw my flower arrangements and bouquets. Even the boutonnieres were awesome. Her work is beautiful, unique and classy. Her level of professionalism is to be commended as is her ability to accommodate any budget. When people look at my wedding photos, they always comment on my beautiful bouquet. Her flower creations made my wedding day just that much more magical!

Michelle at Shells petals did a great job for my May 1st wedding. I loved everything! She did the flowers for my friends wedding the weekend before and they were great for hers as well!

Michelle met me in the middle in Newbury park to save me a trip to Ventura-that was convenient. The color of the hydrangeas was EXACTLY what I pictured. She had some extra flower petals from a previous event and offered to bring them and scatter on my cupcake table. I really appreciated her going the extra mile. She was very easy to communicate with and she always responded quickly to my questions and concerns. I would pick her all over again and I would recommend her for any bride.

Thank you Michelle!

I wasn't sure of exactly what I wanted... I'm not a flower person. But with the ideas I had, Michelle was able to put together the perfect arrangements for me. Her knowledge and responsiveness to my suggestions was exceptional! She was very affordable for the product we received and went above and beyond my expectations the day of the wedding. I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. She was extremely flexible with allowing me extended time to give her final numbers for our center pieces. Everything was perfect. Working with her was such a pleasure. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Summary:
-Understands needs/wants and communicates ideas for wedding in planning stages well
-Flexible in shifting ideas as wedding evolved and floral needs changed
- Great consultant- provided valuable advise and feedback based on expertise that paid dividends on the wedding day
-Broad skill set with arrangements- centerpieces, aisle end pieces, petal pattern, garland, custom lawn ornament floral design, wreaths, boquets, etc. :). From large pieces to small, they were all stunning.

I got married in late august in an outdoor venue in Carpinteria. Shell did all florals for the event. We hosted our wedding and reception at the same venue. Shell did beautiful boutonnieres for the men, bouquets for the ladies- all of soft light pinks and sage greens. She did aisle arrangements that hung on the end of the aisles and a beautiful design with petals down the aisle. But the most breathtaking thing was a 39ft garland that went across the stone pagoda and made the ceremony look magical.

For the cocktail hour and reception she also prepared similar (but all different) arrangements for the tables (3 per table) and bigger arrangements for the standing tables in the cocktail hour. Lastly, the staircase leading to the dance floor had 8 oversized, overflowing, beautiful arrangements. Not to mention other small touches here and there.

The whole day was absolutely beautiful and what I imagined. As the wedding developed Shell worked with me, revamped what we had planned and it evolved into such a beautiful wedding! Shell goes above and beyond. Even though I didn't hire her as an event planner, there she was in the flanks, helping things go smoothly that didn't even have to do with florals. You can tell she takes a lot of pride in delivering the wedding her customers want and on the day of it really shows.

Only knock, she isn’t great on email-I just learned phone works better. Overall, I couldn't have been happier!

I was so very pleased with the flowers from Shell's Petals. I LOVED my bouquet. It was the exact deep shade of red that I was looking for. All the flowers looked lovely. The personal flowers were delivered early which was nice and Shell set everything up at the reception and they looked fantastic. I had asked for all red flowers for the centerpieces and all red rose petals for the cake table and some cream flowers were in the centerpieces and cream petals with the red ones on the cake table. Not what I asked for but they looked fabulous so I didn't mind. We went to see her progress the day before the wedding and had most of the centerpieces to show us and when I saw the cream flowers I let it be. It looked better than I thought it would. Over all Shell was great to work with and she loves her job. I would totally recommend her for any wedding or special event.

Shell gave me the most beautiful bouquet, center pieces, and floral arrangments I have ever seen. I still have my bouquet in a vase at home almost one week later, and the flowers still look amazing! I can't stop staring at it.

Although there was a minor hiccup with the birds of paradise (not Shell's fault), we found some in the end and they made the centerpieces and the ceremony aisle simply breathtaking! We had so many comments on how beautiful the flowers were, they turned out even better than we could have hoped for.

Thank you so much Shell!

We love using local businesses and Michelle was a great price and well withing our tight budget and was able to provide us with everything we wanted. I only gave a 3.5 for professionalism because most of the appointment/meetings scheduled she cancelled on day of and the initial appointment to give our deposit she was out for the day and never called me to cancel or let me know, which was not ok because i took time off work for it. But her work speaks for itself. When i saw the trial centerpiece she was able to create exactly what i wanted. The day of my bouquet was absolutely perfect and she had some great ideas that were unique and she was able to accommodate last minute additions. When i say last minute i mean we added more flowers and gave her the vases like 3 days before the wedding. The decor of the flowers everywhere was so perfect and we are so glad we went with Michelle. She had everything done exactly as envisioned and better.

'Shell's did amazing work from start to finish. From our first casual, no-pressure meeting, we felt very comfortable in all our phone calls and emails w/ 'Shell, and she did a great job continuing that through our two day extravaganza. Flowers were high quality, service was to the point. She showed great service and flexibility in offering to deliver early morning flowers as she knew we would be in a bind w/ photos. We can only imagine how great of an event coordinator she and her team would be.

Michelle was very good to work with. She was flexible in her arrangements and she put in everything I had asked for. I was on a budget and Orchids are my favorite flower. Even though I couldn't use them throughout my entire wedding, she still incorporated them in the most important part of the wedding, my wedding party for the groomsmen. She did a great job with my flowers and centerpieces. I loved it all! She was very responsive and even though I gave her 4 stars, she still responded pretty quickly. I always contacted her on the weekends and I truly believe that if she wasn't so busy with other weddings, she would have responded faster. She is very nice and worked well with my wedding coordinator who was almost impossible to work with, even for me. I would definitely recommend her to you and my friends.

Michelle did a great job with my flowers for my wedding. She was extremely flexible with me and helped me figure out what I wanted. My flower arrangements looked wonderful and were exactly what I wanted. It took a few tries but she was able to get everything done and that was more because I was unsure of what exactly I wanted. Only complaints are that I would have liked to see a sample of the centerpieces earlier than a week before the wedding and that the flower girls did not get their wreaths for their hair, but no real complaints since I went back and forth on things so many times. She was extremely patient with me and I could not have been happier with how everything turned out. Great value and she will work with you with your budget and is extremely helpful. Hire her today and you won't be let down.

I enjoyed working with Shell, and the quality of the flowers was great. She supplied my bouquet, my MOH's bouquet and some rose petals for the ceremony. We opted to create our own centerpieces to save money. The bouquets were made from Calla Lillies. I met with her once, gave her a picture of what I wanted, described the colors and described what I wanted for the MOH's bouquet. She created them perfectly. We did not to any sample bouquets, so I was not sure how it would turn out. They were gorgeous! Better than I had hoped for, and it was easy working with her. I would definitely recommend her.

Shell's petals was great. We had the same taste so it made everything that much easier. Michelle was awesome and very nice. The only thing I would have to complain about is the flowers that were for our moms, grandma, and aunts were suppose to be wrist corsages and they were boutonnieres and all boutonnieres were suppose to be red and my husband was suppose to be the only one with white but that got a little mixed up. But other than that Shell's Petals were great to work with.

Shells Petals Florist responded with the following comments:

I loved your vision with the osterich feathers and the classic red and white. You looked so beautiful and your families were so happy! A joy to work with. I have an open communication with my brides, but I am going to have to figure a way to limit emails to avoid any mistakes such as this. But all in all it was a great day and at the end of it when Lindsay and Roy gave me big hugs all the hard work was worth it! Congratulations!

We used Shell's petals for our ceremony in CA, and then we had a reception at home which we used a different florist. Our florist in IL was extremely helpful (Fabbrini's Flowers) and contacted Shell to discuss exactly what we wanted for our flowers, since we were out of state. I had a picture of my bouquet that my florist at home sent and he also typed out every single flower that I wanted in my bouquet. When I received my bouquet, it was very different than the picture. One of my favorite things about it, she omitted and put something else in. She also added other flowers that I did NOT want in it.

I was a little weary when I first talked to her. After my florist had sent her the full order, she asked if I could just tell her what the order was, so that she did not have to look through her email again (pathetic and lazy)!! Since this was our WEDDING, I got nervous and sent her EVERYTHING again, yet she still made my bouquet wrong!

The day of our wedding I had food poisoning and was VERY ill. I barely made it through the day. I missed the reception at OUR wedding so I could get back in bed. When we came home, we told her that we were disappointed about my bouquet. She pretty much said, "well that had to be taken care of that day" when she well knew that I could barely stand at my own wedding!!! Obviously we had different circumstances than everyone else usually does. She pretty much thought, well, since they are out of state, I don't have to worry about them anymore. Her email response regarding my disappointment was again, pathetic. I think she wrote three sentences.

I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend her! She was unprofessional, lazy, and does not know how to follow directions (when there is a colored picture as well as exact flowers to be included from another florist). I'm not sure how much more simple it could get?!!

I have worked in the customer service industry for years and her's was PATHETIC in more ways than one!
