I scheduled a wedding consult with Irina expecting to have a five-star experience - maybe that was my mistake. (The man I made the appointment with was super friendly, though!) After meeting with her for 45 minutes, I'm left wondering who these people are that gave her 5 stars (friends and family?) I've met with three other florists on my search for a wedding florist, so I was familiar with the process. This place and Irina were very disappointing - to say the least. I showed up early expecting to have some time to check out the shop to see some examples of their work. There were none. It wasn't even open. Had I run my finger over the counter I probably would have gotten a skin of dust. My mother in law had come with me, so we all proceeded to move to the back office. No offering of water or coffee - forgivable. Onto the consult! The one thing I wanted was a specific flower submerged in water. I even showed her a picture from Pinterest to clarify. And since 3 previous florists didn't have any problems with it, I expected her to respond the same way. Nope. She said she didn't work with this specific flower and repeatedly tried to convince me (and interrupt me and my mother in law while we tried to explain) that this wouldn't work. And because of our wedding venue, "You don't want to look cheap. You want extravagant." Which if she had even bothered to ask me what theme or look I was going for, she'd understand that 'extravagant' was not any part of our plan. Instead of trying to work with me on my idea, she suggested we find another florist for centerpieces. Really?? Fine. Onto bridal and personal flowers. Not once did she ask to see pictures of my dress or of the bridesmaids' dresses; nor did she ask for the colors (what kind of florist disregards this information?) Although I'm sure she would have worked well within our budget, Irina was rude and unprofessional. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

My wedding looked like it was out of a bridal magazine only a bride could dream of and Irina at Sunshine Flowers made it come true. Her work is unbelievable and she is so polite and friendly and patient. I was an extremely picky bride and the flowers were one of the most important aspects of my wedding. I did a lot of research to find exactly what I wanted and Irina recreated it to the "T." Not to mention no detail was unaccounted for. a Few days before the wedding we went over everything down to the amount of candles for each centerpiece and how many rows of rhinestones will be placed on each. Irina is so precise and doesn't leave room for error and my flowers were flawless. The day of the wedding everything was setup perfectly. She designed for me a unique one of a kind escort card tree which wow'd my guests since nobody has ever created something like this. It was a 15 foot tall tree dripping with rhinestones and candles and chandelier pendants. It was a masterpiece. Irina stayed till my ceremony since the weather was acting funny. Right before my ceremony started (lucky for me) it started to rain Irina helped bring whatever was possible to bring quickly so that nothing would interfere with the evening. I wish the rain cooperated because the ceremony she set up was a dream. Guests made sure to go outside to check it out and they say to this day they have never seen something so beautiful and magnificent. She is a genius with flowers and her work is perfection. She created for me two style centerpieces for the ballroom and they were amazing. Even flowers I didn't care for she placed them there anyways such as bathroom and cocktail hour even tho i opted out she still felt it was necessary and took it upon herself to add flowers where she felt needed on her behalf. I would get married every day ( to the same guy of course) just to see her beautiful works of art!!!

Exceptional is insufficient praise for the work that Irene did for us. My wedding flowers were stunning. My shower centerpieces were completely original and her prices were totally and completely reasonable. I have since recomended her to many happy brides.
