De Young Flowers
De Young Flower is amazing! My wedding was in Half Moon Bay, CA and there were many challenges when I had to prepare the whole wedding sitting in Minnesota. De Young Flower was very responsive throughout the preparation process and provided great ideas and advice. Despite that I had to make a major change two weeks prior to the wedding date, they made it work!!! The result they delivered was truly extraordinary. I also loved its friendly and professional staff. Thank you again!
DeYong flowers did a great job on our wedding! They were so professional and helpful. They also did another wedding I was in with a different style, mine was beachy and my friend's was a winery setting, and DeYong pulled of both themes beautifully.
my best vendor ever
Yong is very patient and kind hearted
I absolutely loved my bridal bouquets and flowers. Her portfolio is amazing. My flowers were so fresh and lovely. When my bouquet arrived, my makeup artist (who has done alot of weddings) said that my bouquet was the most beautiful she has seen and asked me who my florist was! De Young was very patient and really tried to work within my budget. She is very professional and definitely stands by her work. She would say that my wedding was her wedding, and I truly appreciate her for doing a wonderful job.
Young came highly recommended from our wedding coordinator at the Ritz Half Moon Bay and we are so glad we went with her. She listened to us and worked with us to come up with designs that suited our style. We loved how everything turned out. Her prices are little higher than other places but we thought it was all worth it!
De Young is personable and sweet. She gives hugs and tries to please the costumers. Personally, my fiance and I thought language was a barrier for us when we discussed prices and idea concepts.
She is more expensive than other comparable florists. Along the way of planning she changed the price when we tried to make any changes. She quoted us a price and we put our deposit down then she said actually the tax was written wrong and it was not .95% but actually 9.25%. After that error, the overall price skyrocketed beyond our budget. However when our final count went under she did credit us back the cost of one centerpiece.
She did not nail our concept or the overall look. She did not come up with a creative and clean way to use the flowers we originally wanted (roses and cala lillies) and needed to use other flowers to make the arrangement fuller. She did not nail our colors. We struggled to come up with better alternative ideas. The day of the wedding the flowers were not complimented by our guests. There was limited creativity with the centerpieces (the vases were very empty also) but the other main arrangement was pretty. The girls bouquets were simple and I was bummed my bouquet (twice the price) was the same size as the other girls.
I do believe she tried hard but the result fell short of our expectations and was upsetting after spending so much time and effort and money trying to make it work. Our flowers were described by our guests as "the most forgettable element of the wedding."
Young at De Young is an exceptional designer with an elegant taste and most of all a great listner—We got married in August, Young designed and set up our Catholic church and our reception at Valentia hotel, Santana row: my mom, sister and I met with her and discussed the type of layout we would like to have, can you imagine 3 of us argueing and trying to communicate what we need: Young was very patient, pationate, great listner, flexible (to drive to our Milbrae church to scope, take measurement and do the best design for our humble church) and Young was able to deliver beyond expectations.
Her work was impecable and our guests were amazed by the quality, quantity and elegance of the flowers A+, our guests claimed never seen such an eloquant and flawless work, I would love to share some pictures with you as words wont express the out of world work!!!!
I would recommend Young blindly and your wedding will be truly memorable. Thank you, thank you and thank you Young!!!
De Young was the first and only florist that we visited for our wedding. We sat down to discuss about the wedding.... she was very attentive, paid great attention to details, and her price was good. We like that she gave us helpful suggestions that we otherwise would not think about. So we booked her service.
We had another meeting before the wedding. We basically went over what we talked about last time, and then set out to finalize all the details, e.g. color combination, flowers for the centerpiece, and the style for the arch. Everything went rather smoothly and we felt really great to have her as our florist. During our meeting, she also suggested us having a sand ceremony and later was able to help us get the sand and vase at a good price. She couldn't get the exact color we had wanted, but it turned out we liked her choice as well. In short, we developed a complete trust on her during the preparation stage. Still, it's the wedding day that counts.....
On our wedding day, Young arrived on time and started the decoration. The arch was beautiful and the decoration done at the ceremony was exactly like what we wanted. When we went to the reception room, both me and my wife thought the setup was simply beyond what we had anticipated. The center piece looked even more beautiful than what Young drew during our discussion. It could have more decoration inside the vase, but we were really nitpicking. The design was well received by our guests as well.
Overall, we liked everything she did. Everything was better than we hoped for so a five star recommendation. Thanks Young!
De Young Flowers one of the preferred vendors listed for the Four Seasons hotel. I met with Young and liked her immediately. I had a vision of what I wanted, but couldn't really describe it very well. However, Young knew exactly what I wanted based on my personality and everything else I was doing for the wedding. She showed me pictures, took notes, and even suggested different designs for the reception tables for other things that I was planning that will look best for the flowers.
On the day of, Young brought all of the flowers with her and her team on time. Many people complimented how great Young and her team were while I was getting ready in a different location. Apparently the stage that the hotel was responsible to put together for me and the groom to stand on during the ceremony was covered in this ugly color that I would have hated. Knowing what a perfectionist I was, Young immediately asked the hotel to remove the rug all together. The rug had nothing to do with flowers, but Young spoke up to ensure every part of my day was perfect. Young even came up to the bridal suite with my bouquet and wanted to make sure I liked it before she went off to set up everything else. The bouquet was SOOO beautifuly; I almost cried when I saw it.
In addition, Young took the time to get to know my mom and helped made my mom feel comfortabel on the day of. Young was like a family member and made sure everything was perfect the day of (the linen, rugs, etc). She did so much more than I had expected.
In summary, Young is an extremely sweet person to work with. She is honest and reliable. I will recommend her to all of my friends. The quality of the flowers were great, the design was beautiful, all of my pictures are so beautiful because of her flowers. I attached a few for you (please do not share or publish these photos).
Very creative will work with your ideas and very responsable andeasy to deal with..
Great team of helpers....will recommend to all ........
My husband and I got married last year in October and during the planning process, we found Ms. Young at a San Jose wedding expo. Thankfully, we were able to narrow down our florist picks as soon as we met her. She has great customer service skills and is very knowledgeable in planning for a wedding. She had a variety of flower arrangements to pick from as well as an impeccable style and flair for the dramatics. And although there were some initial miscommunication issues between the look of the table arrangements, what she was able to produce for us was beautiful. I would advise that if/when you work with Young, that you are extremely clear and specific about what you would like to see for your wedding. I would give that advice to any couples who are planning their wedding and are working w/various vendors. Specificity is a must.
What I also like about Young is that when mistakes did occur, she was upfront and apologetic. This personality attribute meant a lot to my husband and I b/c in my experience, other vendors we had met along the way were typically unapologetic and hard to communicate with. Having a vendor take accountability for mistakes is important and I believe Young has these attributes. I believe it is her strength.
Young also showed an extreme amount of patience w/us, especially when my husband and I couldn't make up our minds about the floral arrangements. Her bouquets were also well made and beautiful. If you want to work w/someone who has great energy and is extremely friendly, I would absolutely recommend Young at De Young Flowers.
Young is super nice and great to work with. She took my ideas and added a few of her own and the final product was better than I had ever imaged. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. She was able to make a large room feel intimate and romantic which was exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend Young to others.
Working with Young is an absolute pleasure! She is attentive to my couples'needs and flexible to their changing requests. She has a real eye for design and her floral arrangements always get rave reviews from my couples and their guests. If couples have no idea about what kind of flowers they want, she will guide them and if they do have a vision in mind, she will execute it to a T. I know I can always count on her to deliver excellent results!
Personal, artistic, and simply some of the most beautiful floral design we've ever seen!
