I recently had my wedding at Cicada and the team at Shirvan design did an amazing job.
I met with the owner Arsine and she was very respectful of my thoughts about the design ideas.
She helped me with the complete overall design and the room looked amazing.
Most of all I very much appreciated her flexibility and her patience with this whole process.
My Wedding was just this last week and I am so thrilled about few of my vendors and how they took care of me.
The number one was my florist Shirvan design. Calling them just a florist is an understatement. They completely designed my whole reception room.
Arsine visited the venue with me and helped from table design to lighting and many decor related details.
I am so impressed by her. She is a very kind person who is amazingly talented and always ready to help you in any way she can. Thank you Shirvan design!!!!
My friend used Shirvan design's services two years ago and she recommended them to me because she was very pleased with their product and services. Arsine is an amazing person to work with. She is not just a florist. She helped me to design my whole reception from A to Z. She is very flexible and very knowledgeable. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.
She went above and beyond her promised contract. Please meet with her before booking your florist for your wedding.
Please read the reviews when searching for your florists. Arsine was pleasant to work with, but as soon as you put the deposit down, she turns her back. Not as responsive and not pleasant to work with. What we agreed upon during the meeting and contract was not was what was delivered. It sucks because I did not have control because it was the day of the wedding. I even met with her the day before to look at my pieces and some were changed or was not made as expected. Then when you question it, she gets defensive and tells me she thinks it looks better this way. Who's wedding is it? Unbelievable! She was the worse vendor to work with. Save yourself the headache and look for a florists that is reputable and trustworthy. Do not let this lady mess up your wedding dreams. You will be disappointed when they show up with flowers you did not agree to.... then its too late because its the day of your wedding.
I selected this vendor because they were on the preferred vendor list at Calamigos. I think they did an okay job. Was expecting a bit more especially since Arsine is so good at sales... Just make sure you are specific about what you want, attend the centerpiece viewing and follow-up with her. Text messaging is the best method to communicate with her as she doesn't respond to e-mails as much.
If you are looking for a florist that delivers you above and beyond, Shirvan design would be the florist. My wedding was at Humming bird ranch and my reception site looked like an enchanted magical forest with candles and amazing flowers in jewel tones. Shirvan design created an image that I dreamed for years. I would recommend Shirvan design to any of my friends.
You have coordinated and orchestrated a beautiful event, with unbelievable centerpieces and you have done an unbelievable job, 10 times more than what I had expected, and you know my expectations are very high. You have done this with so much grace and happiness which made the process go so much smoother. You have taken this big responsibility on your shoulders and performed flawlessly.
I want you to know how much we personally want you to thank you for the magnificent job you have done. You are a true artist and master of your work. Looking at the video, I honestly can say that I could not have asked for more or better than what you did. Every masterpiece was incredible, every detail was done perfectly!
I was introduced to Shirvan design through my event planner beginning of this year. My family and I met with Arsine many times and she helped us design an amazing wedding. She has a very warm personality and is very creative. She completely understood my vision. On the day of the wedding, when I entered the ballroom, I could only think of words Like "amazing, dazzling, radiant, absolutely lovely". We loved her good soul, and all the effort that she put in making sure everything was the way we wanted things to be. I have already recommended two of my friends to Arsine for their wedding and they also love her. She is amazing and you should check her out.
I first discovered Shirvan Design at a wedding show a few years back. Though there were numerous outstanding and rather well known floral designers at this upscale show, none came close to the sheer "wow" factor that Shirvan had to offer. But back then I wasn't really serious about hiring a florist....yet.
Fast forward a few months to the next 3 or 4 wedding shows that I saw Shirvan Design at - all of which blew me away. Then I started noticing Shirvan Design's work in Ceremony magazine, among others. And then I noticed the very first florist my wedding planner was raving about was them. And there is no denying their downright amazing work. Finally, I met the design genious, owner Arsine, at, you guessed it, another wedding show. I knew she was going to be my florist from the moment I met her.
Working with Arsine and her team was like a dream. First of all they are so inviting and warm, and they will spend as much time with you as you need. And they actually listen to your vision and work with you to make an even more awesome version of it come to life. There are so many florists that simply can't do this - instead, they try to TELL you what you should want, or what they want for you. Either that or they just aren't capable of the amazing work that Shirvan Design can and has done for me and hundreds of other brides like me.
Fast forward to my June 18, 2011 wedding. Keep in mind that I am a hard to please, detail oriented, OCD bride. I could not have asked for a more amazing florist. My flowers were so lush and luxe! There were super amazing touches that they put on the flowers that surprised even me. They went above and beyond what was promised in the contract, and after the event, their crew's clean up was flawless.
Trust me, hiring Shirvan Design will be the best decision you can possibly make for your wedding. If you're considering them, don't waste another minute!
had some great florals and creative mind. helped create a completely unique wedding reception and ceremony setting although some things weren't exactly what we talked about. either way, it turned out gorgeous so i can't complain!
When looking for a florist for our wedding, I wasn't really sure what I was looking for, so we went with our venue's preferred florist. I'm so glad we did :)
Garry and Arsine were so helpful when designing our wedding! When we requested changes at our mock up, they changed them and at the wedding everything looked exactly how we wanted it!
The day of our outdoor ceremony, it rained. My day-of coordinator and I called Shirvan Design to talk about plan B, and Arsine was more than accommodating. When I showed up at the venue to see the indoor ceremony set up, I was floored by how beautiful everything was! Even with our last minute changes (only by a couple of hours), they were able to deliver above and beyond my expectations!
Everything was beautiful, and I would definately recommend Shirvan Design to future brides!
First of all, words cannot express how thankful I am for Arsine and her staff. I first came upon Shirvan Design through Ceremony magazine. My first thought when I viewed that spread/ad in the magazine was, "This florist will definitely match the artistic style that I look for in a florist." Arsine did not disappoint! When I walked into my venue to do my first look pictures the day of my wedding, I was so touched and blown away from how the ceremony site looked-gorgeous & beautiful! I have never seen anything more elegant! Secondly, she MADE my reception that day! Without the flowers, I don't think that everything would have came together as beautifully and perfect as it did. I was breath taken by how everything looked! Thank you Arsine for your professionalism throughout this whole process. I will definitely recommend Shirvan Design to the rest of my family and friends!
The final product was very nice, but the process was pretty awful.
Heed the warnings on these other reviews about their pressuring sales tactics, inability to deliver on items discussed, sudden changes, and lack of adherence to contracts.
Like others have said here, their interpretations of the "specials" they offer is pretty suspect. For example, "10% off" became "10% more flowers than you would've gotten." Huh? How is that even measurable?! Needless to say, make sure you do your sample viewing and be direct. Even they couldn't explain their own spreadsheet of cost breakdown once they were actually questioned.
Our designer, Joel, was on the same page as us throughout, and was very good. But when Arsine got involved, things inevitably went haywire. She has a "bigger is better," "blingy" sensibility, which really clashed with our elegant, organic taste - and she enjoyed taking subtle digs at our choices and trying to constantly up-sell. Listening is not her strong suit.
In the end, we simply didn't feel like our wedding was important to them. We weren't going cheap, but daddy wasn't writing the checks either, and it was clear that the "bigger" clients were more important. They were also completely unresponsive to our coordinator in the final weeks.
Save the stress, there are a lot of better options out there (we would've switched half-way through if we hadn't put up that deposit so early!).
One month before my wedding and I was worried sick about my flowers. Already booked with a different florist for 9 months and every mock-up appointment left me not pleased. Sleepless nights about the flowers for my wedding and as it got closer I did not know what to do. Called my wedding consultant expressing my desire for a new florist one month prior to my wedding and she had a great relationship with Gary Tomason at Shirvan Design. In a nervous state with knots in my stomache about my current situation I felt at ease with my appointment with Gary because of my great relationship with my wedding consultant. When we met, Gary could not have been nicer, more professional and caring about my needs and seeing my vision for my flowers for my wedding. Everyone that knows me knew...flowers for my wedding was THE most important on my list for my special day. I have always felt that the flowers for your wedding will make or brake the event. It sets the tone snd makes a statement about the style of your wedding, the class, the one thing your guests eyes are drawn to when they walk into your reception or ceremony. To me, flowers were everything and they had to be perfect! Right away Gary picked up on my vision and on our second appointment he came to my venue to get the feel of the place, the space and my vision. He sketched and created my Chuppah for my ceremony. My husband and I both from different faiths...and Gary had a drive to make both our visions become one. I was blown away by the quality of Gary's flowers at Shirvan Design and the attention to detail he has a gift. By our third and final appointment we had everything down perfect and I felt as if Gary had known me for a long time. My vision for my wedding was elegant, romanctic and classy. He took those three words and at my wedding as my husband and I went table to table those same words came from our guests mouths as they described our wedding. As I drove up that day to my venue in the limo and saw Gary and his team setting up my ceremony flowers I was already tearing up in awe of what he was creating for me and for my husband...and for all our guests. Our wedding was amazing...it was elegant, it was classy and oh, it had romance! On our honeymoon as we reflected of our wedding and how amazing it was...Gary and Shirvan Design was a major highlight of conversation. When we returned from our honeymoon the same comments came from our family and friends who attended our wedding. In fact, people have been asking for Gary's contact information. Brides who are getting married this year and next, family friends who are designers, and guests who would like to use them in the near future. Next year my cousin is getting married. She is my wedding party and I in hers and I am so excited that she is going to call Gary to have him do the flowers for her wedding too. We did spend a generous amount on our flowers but Gary can take any busget big or small an deliver what the bride and groom vision for their special day. Thank you Gary and Shirvan Design. We are niw lifetime customers of yours and will refer you in every way possible so everyone we know can benefit from the gift you truly have. All the best, Heather Olsen
The team at Shirvan Design is amazing. Arsine and Garry are incredible. When we first met with Arsine, she attentively listened to our needs and immediately had a handle on the flowers and design feel we wanted for our wedding. The pricing was a great value for Los Angeles and we definitely seemed to get more than we paid for.
Shirvan Design was highly professional and far exceeded our expectations. Our guests are still commenting on how gorgeous our yellow flowers and black and white theme were. Our centerpieces were dramatic and stunning! We highly recommend the Shirvan Design team.
We are so glad we decide to go with this florist. Orignally we were going with LA Premier, but they kept pressing us into spending more money. We were only having 100 people. So we ended up getting exactly what we wanted for half the price. The floral pieces were just amazing...and our guests really thought we spent over 10k on the wedding.
We were shopping all around the city for a florist, and we were going to go with some of the higher end Florist like Square Root, but we found this small place in Burbank who did the same exact look for half the price. Their service was amazing and friendly.
Great to work with and their displays were amazing. Amazing set of roses and carnations for the entire ceremony! My goodness there is absolutely NO reason not to choose this store to do your wedding!
Joel at Shirvan made our wedding so unbelievably gorgeous. The wedding was 2 months ago, and almost every day I hear someone else comment on how beautiful the flowers were! He just GOT it, right from the very first meeting!
Arsine and her staff made our wedding dreams come true. Shirvan Design converted an older location into the wedding I had always imagined. Arsine was like an angel there to guide and inspire. She even calmed the nervous bride and mother of the bride with her composed attitude. Everything was beautiful and the staff was very proffesional. Gary was very responsive through emails. Thank You Shirvan Design, we can't wait to do business with you again. Eric and Cindy O'Neill
The folks at Shirvan were amazing. My husband and I were on a tight budget and they worked with us to make our decor pop without costing too much. They decorated our ceremony location, our cake and our reception with large bouquets of fresh flowers. They also provided my bouquet, my bridesmaids' flowers and all the corsages for everyone else. I got to preview everything the day before and they even re-did my bouquet when their first try didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped. They did custom-sized cakeplate wreaths for each of the tables at our reception for the centerpieces. Everything came out the correct color and exactly as I had imagined it. Highest marks!
They arranged everything for our wedding in Cabo San Lucas....and being always on business trips between London & Los Angeles... i have to admit I was a bit nervous.
We are certainly glad we went with them as our wedding pictures just came today, reminding us how beautiful they were. They had great contacts for photographers, linens etc...good stuff.
Arsine was AWESOME! She listened to the vision I had and played with my own creativity- the end result? The most perfect bouquet to fit my avant guarde' dress! I had a gown that was unique, unusual, and very ME.... Arsine at Shirvan took my ideas and my thoughts and made the most amazing bouquet for me!!!! My home smelled lovely for a week following the wedding- since of course my own bouquet was too gorgeous to toss- and she made me a special toss bouquet for that!!! Highly recommend her artistic view points to all brides- but especially those with a more couture look in mind!!!
WORST experience ever! Does not even deserve 1 star. I wish, I wish, I wish I read reviews before signing a contract with Arsine. I met her at the LA bridal show and she was very pleasant (because she wanted business), but wait until you sign the contract.. you will just be another number! I should have realized how I couldn't trust her when she bad mouthed her past employees (the ones that left her and now opened their own florist shop). I also wondered why she went through soo many assistants. They probably found out that she really is not pleasant and deceiving to work with. Oh my, was my experience horrible! Reading the reviews below about how "what is stated on the contract" and what she "actually" delivers is crazy! We actually had an arguement the day before my wedding!! Who does that to a bride? I remember one comment she made was, "For what you are spending, I am wasting my time." WOW!! Certain items we reviewed on the contract was not what we spoke about. Then when I questioned her at why things were not done correctly she said, "I am an artist and we might change things to better suit your wedding." This is bullshit!! She didn't pay attention and created what "she wanted". Wouldn't a professional vendor say, "hello bride, I know we spoke about white roses, but I was thinking about pink roses, what do you think about my new idea?" She didn't even ask, she did what she wanted because SHE DIDN'T PAY ATTENTION TO THE CONTRACT! Arsine was a waste of time and money. I was sooo disappointed in my flowers. The bouquet in the picture was taken only from the top because the bouquet was falling apart and had brown flowers. My "free" bouquet toss was a flimsy bouquet that consisted of 4 roses. I was sooo embarrassed to throw that bouquet that my caterer handed me the cake flowers to make it look bigger. The $100 scatter of rose petals were also deceiving. She showed me pictures of how it would look to have roses scattered in the aisle and again! It looked nothing like the pictures. I was so embarrassed! The bouquet for the bridemaids were smaller then what we talked about, the arch for $350.00 was also cheezy. She said it would be a wrought iron arch. It turned out to be a flimsy white arch that looked ridiculous. She "had no pictures" to show me.... I wonder now why she had no pictures! The list goes on. Arsine is good at one thing... it is selling her business and closing the deal. She should get an award for "closing deals" and being a saleswomen. She is definitely not a person you can trust. If you are spending a lot of money, then you will matter to her. She does not take pride into establishing her company into a reputable business. She only cares about bringing money into her wallet. Think about it... it is a one time event, your wedding day. Don't you want piece of mind that your flowers will arrive at how you imagined? If you think about it, brides are in NO control of your floral arrangements. Basically, you have to trust your florists because whatever they bring the day of your wedding, is what your going to get!! You can't complain because what can you do... the show must go on! This is probably why she stays in business, because who can complain when the flowers are already delivered. Please take my advice and #1. Read Reviews #2. Find a reputable professional florists recommended by others #3. Trust your gut instict.
Horrible service. Arsine (owner) does not deliver or guarantee what is stated on the contract. My wedding flowers were browning and not fresh. She also changed items that we never spoke about. Would not recommend this vendor. Find another florist you can trust. Do your wedding the right way and work with a professional. She will pressure you into signing the contract same day and tell you about free toss, free entrance, free cocktail table flowers, free flowergirl basket because it's already added into the price. It is a good sales technique that I fell for too! I suggest going to at least 5 well reviewed florists before choosing one. Don't let her pressure you! You are in control of your own wallet.
I went in to Shirvan Design in Burbank a few months before my wedding. It was actually the first place I visited after my reception venue, Calamigos Equestrian Center Burbank, had recommended them to me. I met with Arsine at Shirvan Design.
I gave Arsine a budget and she really worked with me. It was hard for me to go with them since it was the first place I went to but Arsine seemed really knowledgable about wedding flowers and I'm glad I did. I did end up going over budget though but ONLY because I had to add more flowers because I had more guests than I anticipated.
The flowers at my wedding were absolutely GORGEOUS!! I was so happy with them. Shirvan Design did my reception flowers as well as my bridesmaids bouquets, mom's bouqets, and the buttoniers. She also decorated my cake with flowers and it was so amazing. I got so many compliments on the flowers from girls of course, and guys believe it or not! That's how beautiful they looked.
Arsine told me to go in the day before my wedding and take a look at the flowers so I could see that they would be fresh for my wedding. I didn't have time but they were so pretty anyways. Some of the flowers were suppossed to be delivered to my home at a certain time and they ended up showing up early which was great. I didn't have to worry about it the rest of the day.
I would totally recommend Shirvan Desing to any bride who is looking for a professional and trustworthy flower vendor! They made my wedding the wedding of my dreams...
Arsine at Shirvan was such a pleasure to work with. My venue was not a typical wedding venue and basically had to be transformed. I had a vision in my head and Arsine surpassed all of my expectations for our flowers! She was the only vendor where the original quote came in below my actual budget without even telling her what my budget was. Most places do not offer a trial and with Shirvan it is included in the package. After my trial I was having some doubts about how it came out and Arsine was very patient and open to making all of the changes I wanted. I didn't have a chance to go back and meet with her before the wedding, but when I saw all of the flowers I was blown away! She did an amazing job! I would highly recommend Shirvan for any special event!
We received a lot of flowers for the amount we spent, and everything turned out very beautiful. However, they were a little pushy during my first consultation (tried to make me sign a contract right then and there), and the bouquets did not have all of the flowers I requested in our contract (I was told the day before the wedding that one type of flower was out of season and on the day of the wedding I noticed my BM bouquets were rather small and were missing a flower specified in the contract too). Other than that, they were pleasant to work with and I was overall satisfied with their service.
What can I say....they were great!! Easy to work with (Arsine was our contact), she was very knowledgeable about the flowers what would work, color suggestions, etc. which was good since I'm not a flower person. She suggested how to best include the color scheme I wanted and was familiar with our wedding location so knew where and how to set up for day of wedding, was on time and even helped move certain arrangements to the reception. The cost was very reasonable, met with us, discussed our budget, and worked very well with our wedding planner. All made a good team, and guests thought everything was beautiful!
There are not enough words to express my satisfaction with Shivan. When I showed up for my first appointment, even though my planner had given a incorrect description of my vision. The owner sat me down and within a 1/2 hour, she completely understood exactly where I wanted to go with flowers, and kept it within a good price range.
Even though it was a very long appointment, i must say by the time I was done, the arrangements were exactly as I was hoping. Our wedding was a beach theme..and she went out of her way to get a variety of sea shells. My wedding was a stunning affair that people are still talking about. Thank you Arsine and your team for all your hard work.
Thank you so much to everyone on the Shirvan team for the excellent job you did on the flowers for our wedding!! I cant say enough good things about them. Willingness to accommodate, attention to detail, stunning work and service. I am so thankful and recommend them to anyone.
Shirvan Design came highly recommended and I could not have been happier with my decision to use them. From the initial meeting through the wedding day, everyone was so nice! The designs speak for themselves, they were absolutely gorgeous. They made the most beautiful pieces and fit comfortably within our budget. If you are getting married, go talk to them. They will take care of you.
The flowers for my wedding were WONDERFUL! I received so many compliments. Thank you so much for helping make my special day so beautiful. The staff was great to work with capturing my vision and putting so much emphasis on detail. Truly awesome!
I would say out of everything the flowers were the worst part of my day. My bouquet and fabric around was dripping wet. They messed up on the colors of the boutonnieres and gave my MOH the same bouquet as the bridesmaids. The stands down the aisle were cheap and were falling over, the coordinator had to constantly pick them up. Luckily they stayed put long enough for the ceremony. So if you want your flowers to be less than spectacular then go with Shirvan Design. If I had to do it over I would of went somewhere else.
I will say that the bouquet was beautiful but it was wet and the centerpieces were exactly what they showed me. But because we used the aisle flowers as the centerpieces they were damaged from falling over because of the cheap stands.
I can only express total gratitude for a supreme job. The florals were absloutely exquisite. The staff worked super had the day of the wedding to make everything perfect. Shirvan design was one of my top vendors and an absloute pleasure to work with. I loved they responsiveness, and their professionalism. I would recommend them to any friend. One of the great things they offered me was that I could check all the arrangements the night before the wedding. That was the best thing any vendor had ever offered.
Art was a pleasure to work with. He really did try and work with our budget. Our ceremony location flowers were absolutely breathtaking, I just loved my bridesmaids bouquets, and my own bouquet was better than I could have asked for. Wasn't too thrilled about the preview centerpeices at first. But once they were on our tables, they really did look great! Art and his crew really did an outstanding job. We also rented our Chivari chairs from Shirvan. They were VERY REASONABLY priced compared to the other quotes we were getting.
I highly recommend Shirvan Designs! I found Shirvan at a bridal show, after searching high and low for a florist who 'got' what I wanted. I didn't want traditional centerpieces. I wanted something edgy and different, and Shirvan delivered.
We worked with Art, Joel, and Arsine. All were professional and obviously know what they are doing. About a week before our wedding, I met with Arsine regarding some concerns with the church and to come up with some ideas as to how to 'spiff' it up. She promised me she'd make it fabulous, and boy, did she deliver. I was amazed when I walked into the church that day. Our altar pieces were huge and gorgeous. Even the pew arrangements were huge, with more than a dozen roses in each of them! My bouquet was beautiful, and the bridesmaid's and mother's bouquets were, too.
Shirvan transported all of the flowers from our church to the reception site. It was so nice not having to worry about dragging the flowers there ourselves. They managed to re-use all of the flowers from the church at the reception, which I appreciated. There were flowers all over the reception! They re-used all of the pew arrangements, all of the altar pieces- nothing was wasted.
Overall, I cannot recommend Shirvan enough. We got so many compliments on our flowers- we had guests asking if they could take our centerpieces home! Thanks, Shirvan, for making our day beautiful.
I went in to Shirvan without a real idea of what I wanted. My directions were to "use white flowers, make it romantic, and figure out a way to use these white peacocks on candelabras". For $2000 I ended up with truly spectacular centerpieces of candelabras and urns and lush, extremely full bouquets of exceptionally fresh flowers. My reception would have not have been so breathtaking if Shirvan Designs had not done such outstanding work. Shirvan Designs is also a pleasure to work with and I have them to thank for turning me on to Jaqki's Cakes.
I was pleased with most of our flowers, but there were some major problems with our order. Specifically, the bridesmaid's bouquets were not the same as the ones we ordered (and paid for) according to our written contract - large flowers were included that were not part of our color palette. They looked pretty - but it was not what I was expecting.
I was told that there were "not enough flowers" to fill the layers between my cake, which again, was in the contract. And besides, who says that to a bride's face an hour before the ceremony??? The cake flowers ended up looking okay on the side that faced the guests, but I was worried about it going into the reception.
I was also given a toss bouquet, which I had specifically said that I did not want or intend to use. It got tossed - in the trash - at the end of the night. Wish I had those flowers on my cake...
What was most disappointing was that my bridal bouquet was falling apart before the ceremony even began. There was also a brown spot in one area which began to show after the petals started falling off. I had an antigue heirloom pin on my bouquet, but could not face this out during my walk down the isle because that side of my bouquet was literally falling apart. I had to take a lot of my pictures after the ceremony without the bouquet because it was in such sorry shape.
Basically, the worst thing about this vendor is that they are crummy listeners. Do not assume that you will get what you contracted. Their talent, however, is undeniable and they knew my site well and worked there often (which is why I hired them to begin with). The layout of the flowers was excellent and the centerpieces were a great value. I would not pay the $150 for the rose petal aisle border - it was VERY sparse. Overall, the flowers were pretty, but I would not use this florist again for a special event.
After meeting with a few florists in my area we decided to go with Shirvan Designs since Arsine seemed extremely experienced and could see my vision for our wedding. I corresponded with her over the phone and sometimes I would stop by the store to make sure she was aware of the changes in my colors or ideas. We went in for one centerpiece sample; it was more like a work in progress to see what I wanted. By the end of our meeting we had finalized details of my centerpieces. Two weeks before our wedding we went in one more time to go over all of the details, make all of the final choices, and pay for her services. She was always very knowledgeable and gave us comfort that everything would be perfect. She also told us to come in the night before the wedding to inspect all of the flowers and make sure that I liked everything. I did not like the bouquets that they had made for both of the moms, and when I told her she immediately told her assistant, Art, to make new ones that I liked. In the end I was very pleased with the results. My bouquets and centerpieces were absolutely gorgeous! Each of my centerpieces were about 2.5 feet in diameter and would stand on top of tall chloe vases with crystals hanging from the top. All of the guests raved about how beautiful the flowers were and how huge the centerpieces were.
I noticed that since our wedding Shrivan Designs has expanded into a full service event and floral design company and has a new website. I would totally recommend them, even though at first she seemed a little pushy to me, I am so glad we went with her.
Here's the website: http://shirvandesign.com/
I recommend Shirvan Designs! The flowers were beautiful and they really listen to what you want. The only thing i can say is there was some miscommunication between what pictures were sent of our trial and what we were actually getting. That was a little disappointing. So just be very clear as to EXACTLY what you are getting from them. Our flowers were beautiful and the price was right. I would recommend them for your wedding
Brides, picture exactly what you want your wedding to look like, flowers, lighting, candles and overall atmosphere. . and now picture it 150% more!!! thats exactly how my breath was taken the day of my wedding. . everything was like a fantasy! actually, it was more than what i had fantasized! they are dependable, very reasonably priced, respectful and absolutely brilliant! Arsine is one of the sweetest and most HONEST people i have ever met, and i will never forget how calm, beautiful and romantic Arsine and her crew made my wedding!! there was not one guest that was not in shock when walking into the room!
We definitely give Shirvan our highest recommendation. Most of our interaction was with Arsine, who is an outstanding artist of flowers. She thinks about your entire room, versus just your bouquet or centerpiece, and her work was key in making both our wedding and reception exquisitely beautiful. For Brides that have every detail about all of their flowers already set in their minds, I'm sure she will do a great job of making that come to life. We did not have such a detailed vision and greatly appreciated being able to work off of Arsine's imagination. Shirvan was also very reliable in delivery of our flowers for the ceremony and set-up of the reception. From our first meeting with her, we knew that she has an incredible fund of knowledge and is personally invested in making a beautiful wedding and she did not disappoint.
Flowers were beautiful ... but customer service was really lacking. I would recommend going with someone else.
The flowers were amazing, the service was five star, and definitely their prices were great. They worked very hard to capture my vision and ideas. On my wedding day when I walked into the room, I was in tears! I could not believe how amazing everything looked. I got so many compliments on all of my wedding flowers from my guests and friends. Those comments made my day even more fantastic. The flower designers had spent such a great deal of time working on all the details that everything looked like a perfect picture! The best thing of all that they offered me to check out all the finished work the night before my wedding which really made me feel reassured. Shirvan Designs is a must see florist!!!
I am happy to recommend Shirvan Designs to anyone planning a wedding. I had all red roses and they were absolutely fabulous! The deepest red...absolutely beautiful. All of the guests remarked on how beautiful the flowers were...the photographs were amazing.
They were able to move flowers from the church to the reception, which I was skeptical of at first, but it was abolutely seamless & resulted in a significant cost savings.
Art and Arsine were a pleasure to work with.
My experience was pretty similar to Starwell's (below). The table arrangements and altar decoration were beautiful, but the bouts and bouquets weren't the right colors (not terrible, but not right). Literally every other vendor we worked with was friendly and accommodating, but Shirvan always seemed to make a big deal over everything we asked. They also were very pushy on the first meeting. They're the only vendor that kind of left a bad taste in my mouth - not that they screwed anything up terribly, just that I wish I had given someone else our money.
Shirvan designs was the best vendor I had for my wedding. They transformed the ballroom into an unbeleivable setting. The flowers, the lighting, and the linens were done by them and everything was fantastic.
The staff was caring and extremly professional. I could not have asked for a better florist. I would recommend them to any one who wants good service and beautiful flowers.
We as a big family, have enjoyed Shirvan's work for over 5 years. The decor and floral design that this company offers cannot be beat when it comes to talent, quality of work, and pricing! They are true professionals who can transform any ordinary room into an amazing space! I HIGHLY recommend Shirvan designs for your weddings, bridal showers, and special occassions!
These guys are great!! Arsine was our florist but we dealt with Art quite a bit too and they were both great, organized, skilled, very knowledgable and super nice. They did a wonderful arrangement for our decor and the bouquets and stuck within our budget.
I loved the fact that they would do a sample center piece so that you would know what you will be getting before the actual day of the wedding and they were very flexible with any modifications. Our flowers for the ceremony, reception including the sweetheart table and the cake were gorgeous. We would highly recommend them.
I have used Shirvan Flowers for many occasions and they have always gave me the best product! I have referred them to all my friends and have done a great job with them too. I would highly recommend them!
Shirvan Design has done a wonderful job on many events that we have done together. They have beautiful flowers and make every event original and beautiful! They would be a great company to help make your event wonderful!
I have known Shirvan Design for a long time and worked with them on several occasions and they are one of the best in LA. Never short of perfection!
