Cris flowers did our flowers for our wedding. Everything was so beautiful. They really know how to decorate and make a room look amazing. However, on the day of our wedding, they did not deliver our flower pieces the way it was presented to us during the preview. We had manzanita branches and were supposed to have tiny orchids spreadout all over the branches. It was supposed to look so beautful, but when we saw the branches there were only one or two orchids on each one. It was such a disappointment. We couldn't do anything at this point since I was already walking down the aisle. Besides that, they did an incredible job decorating our reception venue. The cake table looked amazing since they had flower petals all over the table. They decorated everything so beautifully.
I had a really good experience with Joachim at Cris Flowers. His sister owns the store and while she was a little bit curt at first, once I was in the shop, she was quite nice. Joachim is a true artist. He seems to love what he does. He sat down with me 3 times as we developed a very casual look for my wedding centerpieces, bouquets and boutinierres. The third time I came in, he had set up a mock table for me to see and it looked awesome. I thought that was really above and beyond. Also, I think their prices are very reasonable.
On the day of the wedding, they were prompt.
My only complaint, and it’s a small one, is that I asked that none of the flowers be “dyed” – I wanted all the flowers to be their natural color. Some of the flowers were obviously dyed. I think there’s no way to make that look good – they always look uneven to me. But considering the amount of flowers that he had to do and that I wanted everything to be yellow, orange or blue, maybe it was too hard to accomplish my wishes.
Beyond that, and it’s small, I would highly recommend them. I found that bringing in a slew of inspiration photos was key because my style is probably quite different than what they’re use to. I thought they were able to achieve the look perfectly.
Gorgeous flowers at an exceptional price (they are located right next to the LA Flower Mart). If you've got a basic vision, Juaquin at Cris Flowers can transform it into something wonderful. He went above and beyond on our wedding day, and our flowers were gorgeous.
