Delford West Flowers
Karl was absolutely wonderful to work with. I did not have a vision of what flowers I wanted for my wedding and Karl was so great in helping me make decisions. The flowers turned out beautiful! I highly recommend Delford West for all of your flower needs. Thanks again Karl for making our special day look so good!
Karl is very knowledgeable and local florist who has great pride in his work. He is very professional, trustworthy and most of all sincere. He has a great eye for what looks good and I was able to provide the wedding colors and he designed all the arrangements. I was blown away when I saw all the bridesmaid bouquets as well as the flower arrangements for our ceremony and reception. I would highly recommend using Karl and Delford West Flowers for all of your floral needs.
I only have one word to describe Karl: AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
Karl was the florist for my wedding back in October 2012. Prior to the wedding, Karl was a joy to work with. He was super responsive (always responding to my emails within 24 hours), patient (I always had a million questions), and knowledgeable. I changed my color theme and flower types several times throughout the planning process but Karl was always very supportive and patient with all my directional changes. Karl even prepared samples of the centerpieces so I could visualize the final end product before the actual wedding (a big plus!!!).
Throughout the planning process, I ended up building a lot of trust with Karl. I trusted his creativity and judgement so much that I decided to just give him free reign to create my centerpieces; I just gave him my budget and final color scheme and he used his expertise to create the centerpieces.
The end product was more beautiful that I could have ever imagined. The various different types of flowers that he chose were simply beautiful and high quality. The arrangements were very full and the creativity was superb. The centerpieces were super beautiful and unique and they really made my reception pop with the beautiful and colorful flowers.
To top it off, Karl worked directly with my baker to coordinate the flowers for the wedding cupcake tower. I was able to take myself out of this process and it saved me so much time. Karl worked flawlessly and seamlessly with my baker and the flowers that he chose for my cupcake tower were beautiful and high quality.
If you are looking for a florist for your wedding, I would highly recommend Karl from Delford West Flowers!!
Karl was so great to work with for our wedding. I do not know names of flowers, and am just generally not good with them! Karl showed me pictures and really helped guide me to what I wanted. I showed him pictures of the look I was trying to achieve (and gave him swatches of bridesmaids dress') and he gave me exactly what I was looking for.
I would recommend Delford West Flowers to any bride looking for a...
Karl is amazing. He is a talented artist with flowers, has an incredible ability to listen, is professional, organized and on time. I would never use anyone else for my flowers again! Thank you Karl for making my pictures beautiful!
Karl did an amazing job on bouquets and centerpieces. He did exactly what we wanted and what we envisioned for our wedding.
All I can say is wow! Karl the owner of Delford West was amazing. We loved the idea that he was a local florist that not only worked in our hometown but also lived there. Karl was recommended by a family friend and he did not let us down. My knowledge of flowers is very limited so when we meet to discuss my vision I was not very descriptive. Karl was able to take what I was picturing and turn it into amazing arrangements. The best part of Karl is that you can completely put your faith in him, he will be on time, professional, and reliable not matter what.
Karl was wonderful. We were married at Murrieta's Well and he provided all the bouquets and boutonnieres. We went from a larger budget down to a much smaller size and he was very understanding. I would rather have a small mount of the most gorgeous arrangements than a huge amount of so so flowers. I highly recommend Karl he made everything very easy and stress free.
Karl Eckel of Delford West Flowers was our florist for our wedding at The Martinelli Event Center at Garre Winery and Vineyards on August 28, 2010. I didn't know much about flowers before we started working with Karl on planning the perfect floral arrangements for our dream wedding. He had such a creative vision for all the floral arrangements at our wedding that I had so many guests ask me who was my florist! Our colors were a dark purple and silver, and he couldn't have done a better job incorporating all those colors into all our flowers to make them complement our wedding dresses and venue! My bouquet was made of purple calla lilies, lavender roses, and purple orchids. The bridesmaids' bouquets were made of flowers in shades of lavenders and accents of purple, with some silver-grey dusty miller. My husband had a purple calla lily boutonniere and all the groomsmen, fathers, grandfathers, and ringbearer had lavender rose boutonnieres. Our mothers and grandmothers had elegant wrist corsages of white and ivory flowers. And best of all, our guests couldn't stop commenting on how unique, elegant, and gorgeous were the flower sprays across the top of the ceremony arch, the flowers that filled the two urns by the arch, the tall trumpet vase centerpieces with curly willow and purple, lavender and ivory flowers! Thank you Karl and Delford West Flowers for adding such a beautiful and magical touch to make our wedding day extra special!
Other than good food and good fun, I knew I wanted beautiful flowers to accentuate our big day.
Karl from Delford West delivered nothing short of PERFECTION!! The centerpieces and our bouquets were gorgeous!
I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, but after reviewing Karl’s portfolio I knew he could help me capture the look I wanted. I decided to give Karl free reign, creative license if you will. His directions were this: bright, vibrant spring colors, no daisies, no daffodils. What I got….FAR exceeding my expectations. He had a way of blending the oranges with the greens, the reds and the purples, and they all complimented each other so well.
Karl was never pushy and was always mindful of the budget. He was extremely professional, and quick to respond to any questions or last minute requests.
His work is more convincing than words, you will not be disappointed.
The flowers were gorgeous! Karl did a fantastic job with our flowers. He went above and beyond to make everything perfect!
