Bella Fiora did the floral arrangements for our wedding 6 weeks ago. I knew the types of flowers I wanted in the arrangements and shared several pictures of designs I liked. Dino came up with a fantastic design that fit our vision perfectly. We chose a modern look with submerged flowers and LED lights illuminating through glass stones from the bottom of the vase. It looked phenomenal as the sun set and the lights came on in the vases. I'm also pretty sure our photographer loved the ceremony arrangements - he used them as a frame in a variety of shots.
Mark handled all of the email and business communication. In fact, he offered to handle some of the coordination duties of my wedding if I wanted. Though I declined at the time, if I were ever to plan such a large event again, I would be absolutely comfortable allowing Mark to take on coordination duties. He responded to email very promptly and when he said he would do something, it happened smoothly without me needing to remind him at all.
Dino and Mark helped to pack up the flowers at the end of the night and let use take them home with us to use as decorations for our day-after brunch. We simply brought the vases back a week later. These two are super easy to work with.
Dino and Mark were both friendly and personable. I truly enjoyed working with them both and I would love to work with them again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I came to Mark and Dino with just a rough idea of how I wanted my flowers to turn out, I had a small budget and had been mocked by a lot of other florists for what I wanted. Mark welcomed me into their studio and listened to all my ideas and didnt try to change my mind or discourage my vision - I didnt want a single rose and wanted the arrangements to look like wildflowers.
Bella Fiora is amazing, they were so helpful, accommodating and friendly. They were the best decision I made and would do so again in a heartbeat. So happy to have found them! Highly recommend!
I used Bella Fiora for my "destination" wedding in Big Sur on March 9, 2013. Dino and Mark were a dream come true! They were so easy to work with; Dino provided great advice regarding my vision for the bouquet and floral crown (i.e. what flowers we could use to compliment the setting and survive the weather conditions) and was diligent about keeping in contact with me prior to the wedding (I live in Houston, TX and planned everything remotely). The end products surpassed my expectations: the bouquet looked better than the original magazine picture and the floral crown stood up to the elements (a car ride to Big Sur from SF and an evening in the fridge). Dino and Mark are a great team and will not disappoint!
Mark and Dino did the flowers for my wedding almost a year ago. They were my favorite of all the vendors I dealt with. They treated me like family, and the flowers turned out so beautiful. I don't know anything about flowers, and really just wanted certain colors, and they went above and beyond!
I requested a small wedding bouquet for my City Hall wedding & it was beyond fabulous! They were very creative in selecting the flowers to go with my color scheme. Lots of communication! They were easy to work with.
I needed flowers for my wedding but didn't want to have a minimum cost or have to buy a pre-selected package. I wanted a good price without sacrificing quality. Bella Fiora was perfect and exceeded my expectations in every way. Mark and Dino are a delight to work with from the idea session to the logistics planning to delivery, they make the process of selecting and ordering your flowers a breeze. The flowers themselves were more beautiful than I could have imagined. When they delivered them in the morning they literally took my breath away. I could not have been happier! They created gorgeous bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and a garland for the wedding cake. They listened to my requests and offered helpful suggestions to make the perfect flowers that absolutely wowed at the wedding. You will not find more delightful service or more gorgeous flowers at a better price.
Dino and Mark were awesome to work with. Although other florists had told me my vision was all over the place, Dino truly made it work and all my guests, including the reception venue, were all in awe. Dino and Mark had my flowers, which were all imported from Thialand, Chili, and Holland, flown up to Vancouver, WA. Which were then transported to Portland, OR where he created my bouquet, boutonnieres, corsages, tall and submerged floral arrangements and then delivered back to Vancouver, WA and they still looked fresh and amazing. Dino even added his own special touch to make my arrangements pop, like adding light cubes in my tall arrangements that made the flowers glow without seeing the actual light cube. All in all... they are truly fabulous!!!!
Bella Fiora did the flowers for my daughter's wedding. Dino's creative design and Marks assistance with ideas and placing the flowers for both the wedding and reception far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend them to anyone who wants amazing quality and service from their floral vendor.
Like every bride I wanted to have the wedding of my dreams! My dream took me outside, by the ocean, with an amazing view of San Francisco! Everyone agreed that it was breathtakingly beautiful.
I started by collecting magazines and organizing pictures of dresses, flowers, table set ups; all the ones I loved the most! I made an appointment with Mark and Dino and I showed them my ideas. They where so nice to me; almost like family. They didn't just care about the flowers, they cared about every detail of my wedding - the venue, cake, food, even the weather. They were truly amazing!
Mark was so helpful, and offered his time to drive with me to my planned wedding location. Every single detail mattered to him. Dino made wonderful suggestions regarding matching colors for my bridemaids' dresses. And, he promised to get me my favorite flowers; lilies of the valley. I showed them pictures of flower arrangements that were very pretty, but their special touch made them even more amazing, because they created works of art.
My wedding day surpassed all of my dreams, thanks to Mark and Dino. Our day was so special, it will live in my heart and my husband's heart forever.

I was very excited to work with Dino & Mark of Bella Fiora for my end of summer wedding. Several of my friends used Bella Fiora for their weddings so I saw their amazing work first hand. Each wedding was so different (which goes a long way to say they are extremely talented designers!) Fortunately they were available for my wedding date!
Dino went above and beyond with his designs and totally blew me out of the water with his ideas. I walked in with a tiny idea and Dino made it blossom and come to life! Mark is the best studio manager and was so easy to work with. He stayed totally on top of where we were in the process of getting ready for the wedding and was so personable and fun! From the initial point of contact, to the proposal, the sit down meeting, and the design sessions....Bella Fiora was a breath of fresh air amongst the hectic wedding planning moments!
Even though I knew what they were going to do at the wedding I was amazed and really became emotional the first time I saw the pieces at the church, and then again the moment I stepped into the reception venue. Wow.
On top of everything, as a surprise, they made a special piece for my 95 year old grandmother. How thoughtful and amazing and wonderful and I will never forget that!
The flowers at my wedding really set the mood and feel for the entire event. Flowers are SO IMPORTANT....so please give Bella Fiora a look...you will be so happy you did!
I'm giving them 5 stars because there isn't a button to push for 10! :)
Mark and Dino are a spectacular pair, much like the dynamic duo. I've been using Bella Fiora for ALL of my events since my own wedding. These guys are fun, professional, and take the time to get to know their clients and deliver the highest quality products possible. I recently ventured into the event planning side of things and have used and will continue to use Bella Fiora for all of my floral needs. I recently highlighted them on my my blog, http://estherpresents.com/vendor-spotlight-bella-fiora/
