Fleur ~ very pretty flowers
I met Tami at the CCWP fair and she was very nice and seemed like she got what my vision was. Additionally she was ok with only doing my bouquet, some bouts and corsages (which some florists were not). I then met with her in her home studio and was feeling very good after leaving that meeting. Her pice was reasonable and I really thought she got my vision. White florals, big fluffy flowers with texture, lavender and some light green. Communication was decent an I will say I was slow on some response times. Then the week of the wedding came. I emailed her to confirm and hasn't heard back to her. I was calling and texting her ON THE DAY OF MY WEDDING. She had the wrong number or something (even though she had two contracts with my number) and said she thought she had called me and left me a message. Then I got my bouquet. First I had given her lace from my mom's headpiece to wrap around the bouquet the lace had these pretty pearls attached to them, but it was 30 years old and I didn't know how they were attached. The lace was on there, but it was in so much water that the wrap was soaked and the glue that was holding the pearls on got tacky and holding the bouquet was sticky and all the pearls were falling off. So my mom and I frantically tried our best to wipe off the tackiness and peals with it. Dumped out the water and put it much less. Eventually my bouquet wrap dried out and it was fine. But then the flowers themselves. So much more greenery than I wanted. In pictures you can hardly even see the white flowers and the bouquet kind of overwhelmed me and we had spicifically discussed the size of the bouquet. Also I was disappointed by the corsages and boutonnières that we received from her.
Overall I would recommend going with a different florist. I wish I...

KC ~ I just received your review. I am so sorry you were disappointed. I have photos of your concepts as well as of your actual flowers, I never heard from you that you were not delighted. If I had been contacted on the day of, I likely could have done something. I packed the flowers carefully to be picked up - unless they were splashed a bunch, they should have arrived safely (not drenched). I take pride in my work, and I included all of the flowers we discussed. I hope the rest of your day was wonderful, and I hope that married life is treating you well! If I can make this up to you in any way, please let me know! Tami, Fleur
My original florist did not work out so my husband (fiancee at the time!) desperately called Tami at Fleur. With about 2 weeks notice she put together bouquets, decorations and boutineers all within a very reasonable budget. She was a life saver! Very responsive to e-mails, extremely friendly and personable. She asked a lot of questions to make sure we were on the same page and she exceeded our expectations in every way. I highly recommend Fleur!!

Nicole ~ Thank you SO much, you are so kind! I thoroughly enjoyed our brief encounter, and was honoured to create your flowers for you! You both looked amazing on your wedding day ~ I wish you a lifetime of happiness ~ I can't wait to see your photos! Tami, Fleur
This is customer service at its finest!! Tami at Fleur was fun, bright, and very very helpful. She was creative and knowledgeable, and really helped us solidify our concept of what we wanted our reception to be. Even at the last moment when we changed our entire plan 180 degrees, she jumped right in and got it all taken care of with NO problems! We had a very limited budget to work with and the quantity -and- quality of the flowers was more than we could have hoped for. You really get a lot for your money!
I would recommend Fleur to anyone and everyone who asked before even thinking of another florist.

stacy & chris ~ you guys were so great to work with! i cannot wait to see the pics!! thanks for the very kind words, tami
I simply referenced a few pages in a bridal book and described my ideas and Fleur made it happen. All my bouquets turned out more beautiful than I pictured.
Kristen and Tami listened to my thoughts and ideas. I had literally no idea what flowers I wanted, so based on many photos and color options, the 2 of them came up with the most beautiful bouquets and arrangements!! I could not have dreamed of something better! I am so thankful for their immediate responses to my many questions, they made this part of my wedding planning much easier!
I am extremely satisfied and look forward to referring them when the chance arises, as well as having them make arrangements for another party we may be planning soon! :)
Happily in Newlywed Bliss...

Fluer did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding flowers. I received many comments from guests about how beautiful and elegant the bouquets and arrangements were. Tami was very easy to work with and takes the time to really get to know the feel that you are wanting for your wedding and matches the flowers wonderfully. She has a great library of photos to look at from her past work and creates a very unique and beautiful feel for weddings.
Tami made planning my wedding decor so much fun. She is so passionate about what she does and it really shows. Tami worked within my budget and provided flowers that were more beautiful than I ever imagined. She also helped me with other ideas and referred other services to make my planning easier. Thank you!
The flowers that Kristen and Tami artfully arranged for our wedding were amazing! We wanted something truly unique and creative and they delivered on each front. Kristen listened to my ideas and brought so many wonderful ideas of her own in order to make something truly beautiful. Everyone was commenting on how beautiful and unique the flowers were.
The florist I worked with was Kristen Baxstresser and she was brilliant when it came to flowers. She was funny, out-going and so knowledgeable about what flowers that were in-season and their price range. We started by going through a flower book, where she would write down the flowers that struck my fancy. The main flowers that I wanted were carnations (my family flower) and she incorporated them into all my flower arrangements and even my cake. All the flowers were gorgeous, BIG and stunning!
Tami at Fleur-Very Pretty Flowers is an amazing florist...so much so that I will be using her for my own wedding next year! I brought her a picture of a bridal bouquet that I really loved, then all I had to do was sit back and watch her put together a package that was exactly what I envisioned. She is so much fun, very energetic, and obviously loves what she does! I highly recommend her services!
Fleur has been the Flower specialist for many of our events and they do a wonderful, creative job. We really like working with them. Your event deserves a florist this good!
Tami brings whimsy and the unexpected to every arrangement she creates. Tami is wonderful at listening to her brides and making their vision a reality. I love seeing the brides delight as she sees her bouquet for the first time. Tami and her staff are always calm under pressure, even in the 100-degree heat of beautiful Paso Robles. It is always a pleasure working with Fleur!

Wow, talk about creative. Fleur is out-of-the-vase =) creative. I love shooting weddings when Fleur has designed the flowers. The couples I work with consistently comment on how well Tami listens to what they want (and does not push her ideas on them unless they ask), plus she really works to meet their budgets. Tami uses very unique and elegant accents with the flowers to give your wedding a one-of-a-kind feel (when in fact each wedding is very unique.) I highly recommend Tami inside and out, she is a doll and you will love her.
