Be Buds was referred to me by a friend who used their service in his own wedding, and I'm glad I took the advice. Planning my wedding from 3,000 miles away was not a fun task. However, Taka made it easy for me when it came to all flower decisions.
Taka was very knowledgeable in his craft and candid with his feedback. Through emails, pictures, and phone calls, I felt that Taka understood exactly what I was looking for. He also was very respectful of my budget and worked with me to maximize my wish list. I truly felt that I was working with someone that cared about me a lot more than his profit.
The final results were truly wonderful. I only wish I was able to bring the flowers on the plane with me so I can enjoy them more than one night!
I read a bunch of reviews online and decided to meet with two florists. I was planning my wedding from across the country, so I only had a small window to actually meet with vendors in person. After about 5min with Taka, I knew I wanted to hire him, even though I had no idea how much it would cost. He is super nice and helpful and has great ideas. I didn't have much of a vision for the flowers, so he just walked through a few ideas and ended up outlining everything in about 30min or so. The best part is... the estimate was incredibly reasonable. He also threw in some free items and gave us ideas for how to bring the cost down a bit. Taka is really incredible. You should absolutely hire him!
Taka is so great to work with and was always very helpful. I met with him a few times about our concept and I thank him for being so patient! On the day of the wedding though there were some discrepancies in what we had discussed...My flowers should have been all purple and a wildflower look. Our ceremony gazebo had blue hydrangea on it which I don't get. Also, my flowers were very green and had tons of fillers which I wanted but there weren't many purple flowers. I think for future brides you just need to be really detailed and specific about what you want so there isn't room for interpretation.
His prices were great and our venue was set up on time. Also, he threw in the toss bouquet, cake decor, rose petals, etc as a gift.
Taka did the flowers for our wedding earlier this month and they were so gorgeous. All of our guests commented on how lovely the flowers were, and we were blown away by the flowers- Taka put together colors and flowers exactly as we imagined. We met with him a couple of times- first to give him an idea of what we wanted and then a final meeting to look at the centerpieces and final details. He is extremely professional throughout the entire process, set-up all the flowers beautifully on the day of, and his prices are extremely reasonable. We had him do flowers on the tables, and also the gazebo and fountain and all came out very beautiful.
Taka was the florist for our August 16th wedding and I LOVED HIM. Not only is he extremely professional, he is also extremely talented. Our colors were chocolate brown and pink. He decorated our ceremony site with arrangements of different shades of pink hydrangeas, roses, and orchids. The bouquets he made were stunning. The center pieces for the reception were so lovely, that all of the guests took them home! You will not be disappointed if you hire Taka at Be Buds.
