I got married on April 27, 2013. I met with Kim almost a year in advance because I knew that the main focus of my wedding was going to be the flowers, When I walked into her flower shop I had NOO clue what I wanted just a couple of photos, and a FIRM NO ROSES ANYWERE train of thought, She pulled out some books, we googled flowers, and I knew that she really understood what I was going for . I had a hard color scheme to pull off Lime green and Purple. When Kim showed up to my wedding venue on April 27 with my bouquets and centerpieces that we not only made the right choice for our wedding, but we now had a new life long florist. All night long everyone kept talking about how amazing my flowers where and how they had never seen anything like It. I never thought that my bouquet would make people speechless but it did so much to the point that I had more people asking to take pictures of it then MEEE !! :) Thank you soo much to both of you at Enchanted For making my wedding complete !!
AWESOME! I worked with 30+ vendors to orchestrate my little wedding, and Enchanted Florist (specifically owner Kim) was by far the best of them. I cannot say enough about how exquisite my wedding flowers were and how wonderful it was to work with Kim. She designed a combination of unusual, exotic flowers in deep, rich colors that EVERYONE has commented on. It was truly like a dream. We put a lot on Enchanted Florist’s plate: aisle runner petals (which they hand-dyed), ceremony arrangements, reception arrangements, outdoor arrangements, floating flowers, floral chair swags, hair flowers, jumping broom flowers and decoration, cake flowers, bouquets, corsages, boutonnières, and a huge floral arch (grown especially for me over several months before the wedding) that her team moved from the ceremony space to the reception space. So much had to be done within a short period of time on wedding day, and Enchanted Florist’s execution was flawless.
Not only were the flowers gorgeous, but it was amazing working with Kim. Most of my other vendors gave me the cursory “congratulations” at first meeting and then moved on to the business at hand. But Kim provided the touchy-feely, once-in-a-lifetime-event, extra special type of treatment that most brides hope to experience during their wedding planning. Not in a sugar-coated way, but in a that made me feel special. Kim is a very sweet person and I enjoyed being in her presence during each meeting.
Kim was amazing! She really listened to what I wanted and went above and beyond to make the flowers look perfect! She even drove all the way from Burbank to San Juan Capistrano to set them all up herself! She was great to work with and the quality of her flowers are second to none! They looked amazing for another week after the wedding!
The flowers that Enchanted Florist designed for our wedding were the most beautiful! When I saw my bouquet I nearly cried it was so perfect. I would highly recommend Enchanted Florist!
The Enchanted Florist provided some AMAZING flower for the day of my wedding. During the initial visit I was highly impressed with their knowledge and flexibility. Kim was extremely helpful and friendly in helping us create the vision we wanted. I absolutely loved the bouquets and arrangments they provided - the prices were competitive (and even better) for most items from what we had seen elsewhere, and the quality of flowers they delivered was superb. They did a perfect job for a garden wedding and in capturing exactly what I had wanted!
However, while I loved the quality of the flowers I do have to give a lower score for service... on the day of the wedding they seemed rushed during the delivery. They arrived and left early; as it was a hot day, they arranged the aisle flowers on the chairs but left them all on the back row. They also did not place the petal aisle. While they did inform us of these decisions, in the chaos of getting ready, no one moved the chairs and thus, all of the flowers remained on the back chairs during the ceremony. I was already waiting to walk in when the groomsmen, realizing that the entire bag of petals for the petal aisle was lying on the side, tried to quickly create a petal aisle. Needless to say, the majority of petals were NOT used and we later had to throw them away, unused. I immensely loved the quality of the flowers, but was dissappointed that they did not stay to ensure their work was complete.
Kim and her staff were great to work with. I would recommend them to anyone. I first heard of The Enchanted Florist on this site and read great reviews, so when our first appointment/consultation went well, we booked them. I'm so glad we did. I saw a beautiful sample about a month before the wedding and had a couple changes. They incorporated those changes and the wedding day flowers looked great! We decided not to decorate the church because they were really strict about what you could have in the church anyway, but we had 18 tables (7 tall arrangements and 11 short arrangements), sweetheart table, flowers for the cake, 4 bridesmaids arrangements and mine, 2 flower girl balls, 6 corsages and 8 pins for the guys.
My flowers were one of my most favorite parts of the day!!! Enchanted Florist definitely exceeded my expectations. I was pretty particular about flowers, but was on a strict budget, and Kim was very flexible and sweet about it! She was good about taking my vague likes and dislikes and coming up with the most beautiful combo. For $1,500 we got so much! Flowers for the cake, about 10 bouts, 6 corsages, 1 bridal bouquet, 6 bridesmaid bouquets, 1 cenerpiece for cocktail hour and 12 lovely centerpices. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!
Kim was so sweet! Once I met her I just knew I had to have her do my wedding flowers. My husband's family had been going to her for years and also really like her a lot. This florist also happened to be so close to the church I had my ceremony at they did not even charge a delivery and set up fee!
What I am most impressed about is how she can work with any budget at all. I chose classic flowers of gardenias and ivory roses for my bouquet and ivory roses and orchids for the girls and they were beautiful and had nice detailing like satin wrapped stems and pearl pins. The corsages, bouts, pew bows as well as the larger bouquets for the altar were also beautiful. But if you look at their portfolio and what is in the shop you can see what creative and unique wedding arrangements they are capable of. They can do anything! She also makes recommendations that really will stand the test of time. She took her time with me even though I stuck with the basics.
For this vendor, I wanted a professional and they certainly have done hundreds if not thousands of weddings. Although not inexpensive, they certainly were very price competitive and were a good value.
I love the Enchanted Florist...I had first seen some of their flowers at Portos in Burbank, and thought they were beauiful. I grabbed a card and made an appointment with her later that day. When I walked into her cute little shop, I was like wow....I bet this is going to be really expensive. But, I went through with the meeting and had pictures and ideas, and Kim went with them. I felt instantly safe with her....like she would take my ideas and do a fabulous job. At the end of the meeting, the quote she gave me was very reasonable. Her centerpiece price was the same as one I made myself a couple days previous, and I loved her stuff much more then the centerpieces I had made on my own. I met with another florist, who listened to my ideas and wasnt as thrilled with them, and sort of tweaked them a little....his ideas were similar but I wasnt as happy with them...and his price was several hundred more then the Enchanted Florist.....So I have some thinking...but I am pretty sure I am using The Enchanted Florist.
Flowers are always coming to my office from Enchanted Florist and they are always amazing, so I went there first once I started looking for a florist. Kim was the perfect choice. I know nothing about flowers, but I brought in pictures of what I thought I wanted and gave her a general budget guideline. From those pictures she came up with an entire concept for the wedding and reception and once I turned over swatches from the bridesmaids' and mothers' dresses, she got really excited because the colors fit perfectly with what she had in mind. Our flowers were amazing, everything was exactly as I'd envisioned it. Her creations really tied everything together and she was affordable -- at least in the same ballpark as the other florists I interviewed. Definitely a vendor you can trust.
The website is pretty crappy, but they were recommended to me by another florist who was well out of my budget. Kim and her team are really nice and really listened to my thoughts and ideas, suggesting others that were within my style without denigrating mine. You'd be surprised how rare that seems to be. The flowers that showed up on the day-of were better than I'd hoped for. Somehow she managed to take my spotty and vague description of what I was looking for and transform it into the absolute perfect bouquet. She even managed to find pale yellow roses for the bridesmaids, even though most florists will just throw in gold because it's easier to find. The odd boutonnieres we asked for came out gorgeous and unusual. The flower girls' baskets, which I had kind of assumed would be blah because I wanted to keep them cheap, were exquisite. I loved everything so much I actually used her a week after my wedding to send flowers to a client because I absolutely trust her judgment and don't think I can go back to any other florist.
I was hired to do a wedding and the rehearsal dinner one weekend. The Mother of the Groom was attempting to top the wedding. She hated the Bride's style and had decided to do the rehearsal dinner as a complete contrast to the actual wedding. Strangely enough, she hired some of the same vendors that were going to be used for the wedding. The Enchanted Florist was one of them.
The Bride had complementing tones of light pinks, lavenders and chocolate brown for her wedding. Sweet smelling lilacs, luscious, full bodied peonies and gorgeous tulips were used. The ballroom smelled fresh and delicious from these lovely flowers. Complementing them were votive candles highlighted with pink glass. The room glowed romantically. The flowers were stunning.
In contrast, the Mother chose a stark museum location for the rehearsal dinner. Her colors were red, black and white. It was reminiscent of the 80s. She had cocktail napkins covered in red hearts and white illet overlays on the tables. 105 guests out the 140 attending the wedding were invited to this event.
The flowers were beautiful - and completely different than the Bride's choices. There were two large arrangements of red tulips and red Gerber daisies. On each table there were three small arrangements - the largest was red tulips, followed by a smaller arrangement of red Gerbers, and the last was a small bud vase filled with a single red rose head. There were also votives on the tables with red glass. The Enchanted Florist had done a wonderful job.
At the end of the night, the florist's assistant arrived to collect a few items to use for the wedding the next day. Little did he (or I) know we would be recruited for delivery duty. The Mother announced that we were to deliver all of the flowers to the hotel to be used for the brunch the day after the wedding (she flitted off before we could protest). With 10 tables, there were 30 vases of flowers plus the two enormous arrangements. Neither the florist's assistant nor I had a delivery truck or the appropriate transport for all these flowers since it was demanded at the end of the night. My heart stuck in my throat as I imagined broken glass and water filling my car.
The assistant was a trooper. He helped us clear out the flowers, including the two large arrangements. He also seemed put out by the situation, but was still very nice about helping us.
When we arrived at the hotel, the concierge's eyes bulged as the flowers rolled in. Apparently, they weren't prepared for so many flowers either. Their solution was to put the flowers in a ballroom and turn on the air conditioning.
I'm not sure if the flowers survived with little water and only air conditioning to Sunday, but they sure were gorgeous on that Friday night!

The Enchanted Florist made my bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and sweetheart table centerpiece. They were absolutely lovely, and for such a decent price compared to the other florists I got quotes on. They delivered the flowers exactly on time, and the flowers were well constructed and GORGEOUS. Kim was so friendly and came highly recommended by other vendors whenever I would mention her and her company.
