Kate Baker Floral Design
Kate was really wonderful to work with. I came to her with a few pictures, a general idea of the feeling that we were going for, and an approximate budget. During our first meeting she came up with the PERFECT centerpieces and color scheme. Because my colors/theme was peacock feathers, this had the potential to turn everything into a tacky bright mess. Kate created elegant, vibrant, romantic pieces that also worked with the rustic vibe of our venue. On top of her creativity, she sent me a quote with at least two options for each flower location (three centerpiece ideas, two different bouquet possibilities, etc) because I had a tight budget and she wanted me to be able to put together everything I needed at a price I could afford. The day of the wedding, I could not believe what she provided for the price that she charged. She went so far above and beyond (I wish there were stronger words); Kate took my vague ideas and the list of flowers that I like and created the most beautiful flowers arrangements I have ever seen. I will post pictures as soon as I get them!! I highly recommend Kate for floral design. She is professional, creative, easy to work with, and spells out everything very clearly from the beginning.

I planned my L.A. wedding from San Diego, and Tom drove all the way to Irvine to meet with us to go over everything. I booked him solely off of his reviews on PW and the Knot, and I am so happy I booked him on the spot! He books fast for a reason - he knows what he is doing, will run the reception if you don't have a DOC (I didn't), and is extremely affordable. He played everything to perfection and was very low maintenance & non-cheesy. I highly recommend California Sounds!!!!
