Designs by Tricia, Inc. posted 9/25/2013 (modified 9/26/2013)

Even though I am working with Brides all the time in the business I am in, when it came time for my only daughters Wedding it was evident that I was in for a rude awaking. This statement pertains to the many aspects of Wedding planning that one doesn't think of. In the beginning a budget was put in place and we were not to deter from it, my daughter being the wonderful wise young lady she is just wouldn't have it any other way. We went to many Wedding shows, talked to many people, and then when it came down to Vendors we listened to people we trusted. Becky Halbreich from Dove Canyon Country Club recommend that we set up an appointment with Tricia for our flowers. This was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made. Tricia is there to help you make your Wedding Flowers part of the dream that you envisioned for your Wedding day. She listens and knows her business, she cares and knows flowers, plants, etc more than anyone I have ever known. My family comes from a horticulture background and knows about flowers, Tricia's knowledge takes this to a new level. The first time we went to Tricia's house, yes she has a complete florist in her home and loves and cares for all of her plants like her very own kids. The florist is critical in your decision making as we soon found out. Their were so many suggestions and input that Tricia provided about flowers, plants, succulents, and vases, etc. In fact I had a special charm that I wanted put on my daughters bouquet as a memory of her Grandpa's recent passing. This was done in private without the secret leaking and made the Wedding day even more special. After the Wedding Tricia even sent us pictures that she took of all the flowers. This will not mean as much to you until you have your Wedding, because you will find out that if you are like us we didn't even get to see the flowers until the room was filled with people. Each and every little detail she thinks of is just for you and her biggest concern is taking care of YOU! Tricia is personable and knowledgeable and her work speaks for herself!

Best floral design I've ever seen posted 7/6/2014 (modified 7/13/2014)

I was delighted to have the services of Tricia from Designs by Tricia this June 2014 for my 10 year vow renewal, as I did for my wedding 10 years ago. Both ceremonies were at Disneyland (Hotel, Wishes collection wedding). I was referred to her through a friend's wedding I had been in. In that wedding I was so delighted with my bridesmaid bouquet, and all the floral that I was interested and asked my friend about her. The bride was head over heels delighted with her and the price value she received, but most of all the quality of her flowers. Back then I had a simple bouquet of pink and white roses...this time I have a much better idea of what is beautiful and partnered better with Tricia with an outstanding bouquet. With both bouquets I was delighted! But my tastes have simply gotten better. That's the great thing with Tricia....she'll do whatever you like, and make it look wonderful. She will have GREAT advice though. I'd say one of the major hallmark's of going with Tricia is that she takes great care to get floral immediately before your event (it is the freshest it can be), stores it overnight in a temperature controlled environment before completing design just before your event. After witnessing several weddings I'm really shocked at how poorly some vendors will deliver floral to brides and grooms. That doesn't happen with Tricia. She is fantastically reasonable on price (though you have to understand Floral is one area that you need to seek out quality first and foremost, as the prices of flowers don't go down, and depending on season, some flowers may cost more). For my original wedding Tricia did all of my floral and it turned out amazing. She added Disney touches that made my floral magical then and this time. I just wish that for our vow renewal, I'd had her do the ceremony gazebo décor, since Disney's selected florist made a big error that Tricia would never have (they didn't include one of the colors they were contracted to, and the floral was droopy). Fresh flowers are Tricia's hallmark, and she doesn't deliver poor quality or missing elements. You cannot go wrong with her.

Thank you so much for all the nice compliments. It was fun doing flowers for your wedding & a few other life events, but this 10-yr anniversary was even more special...especially when I was invited to attend as a guest. I loved working with you on al...

OK, so I know putting fives across the board might seem a little excessive, but seriously (SERIOUSLY!!!), Tricia was truly amazing. I really would give her a 10 out of 5 on responsiveness and flexibility if I could. Why does Tricia deserve all this praise? I'll tell you: with a sudden change in plans I was in need of a new florist about 3 weeks before my wedding and Luckily we found Tricia who was available that weekend. After calling her on a Monday we set up an appointment for that Friday. Tricia, my Mom and I spent a couple of hours that evening working out about ten months worth of ideas and magazine clippings I had collected. Not only was she excited throughout the whole meeting, she never once made us feel bad about the short timeline. Tricia was so fun to work with, I never remember her once saying "I can't do that" but instead would always say "That’s a great idea! We could also...." Over the next few weeks we were in constant contact and I felt included and at ease with each of the floral decisions. She was very considerate of our budget and was always trying to find ways to achieve the look I wanted without going over budget. When I arrived at the reception the flowers were breathtaking, above and beyond my expectations. EVERYONE wanted to take home a centerpiece. Tricia was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to ANYONE.

Best Florist in OC posted 9/22/2014

Where do I begin?! We knew Tricia was a fit for us the moment she welcomed us into her beautiful home on our first meeting. Her work is beyond impressive and her prices are more than fair. She took the time to sit down with us and discuss our budget and options. When I told her I wanted Dahlias for my March wedding she said it would be hard to do based on the time of year and the budget I had set but she would see what she could do. On my wedding day I had the most beautiful pink and white dahlias in mine and my bridesmaids bouquet I was blown away. She is incredibly thoughtful and her work speaks for itself. The best florist in Orange County! Tricia was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Thanks Tricia!

Happy Bride posted 9/16/2014

When I first went to Tricia, I had found out that my flower of choice was unfortunately not in season at the time of my wedding. I had my mind set that I wanted peonies in all f my arrangements, so hearing that they were unavailable at the time of my wedding was not what I had wanted to hear. I had no idea what I wanted for my flowers since I had my mind set. However, Tricia made it very easy for me, she had MULTIPLE flower arrangements in her home for me to see the different flowers in person that were available. On top of that, she had hundreds and hundreds of pictures to show. She made the process easy peasy! She recommended Garden Roses which almost look exactly like Peonies, (which they did). Tricia definitely knows her flowers! Needless to day, the day of my wedding came and I was MORE THAN HAPPY with all of the beautiful flower arrangements she had made for us. I'm still receiving compliments on all of our flower's! Can't wait to receive my pictures back and look at them again! Thank you Tricia for your absolutely amazing work!

The Best! posted 6/8/2014

I can’t recommend Tricia enough. First of all, she doesn’t have a minimum for an order which was perfect for us because we only did personal flowers at our wedding. Honestly, that in itself was hard to find. Tricia came recommended by the representative at my venue, who had used Tricia for her daughter’s wedding. Which seemed like a good sign to me!

I met with Tricia at her home office, and we talked through what I wanted for the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages. I brought some pictures I liked and while other florists I met with basically suggested just copying those pictures, Tricia expanded on it, suggesting other flowers in similar colors/styles. Tricia even found a special tulip at the flower market and put that in. I would never have known about it but I absolutely loved it. I ended up with a truly unique bouquet that felt very “me.” The rest of the flowers were great as well, and held up very well through the whole night.

Tricia was extremely professional and quick to respond to texts and emails. She seems to truly love her work and it shows. Also, her prices are incredibly fair, I think even low for the quality of the work. Hire her!

Best Florist Ever! posted 5/30/2014 (modified 6/1/2014)

Tricia was the florist for my husband and my wedding on May 4th 2014 and she was so perfect for us!!! I had been concerned because I was so lost among flowers, but Tricia was able to create the most beautiful floral arrangements for the chairs and chuppah at our ceremony and the boutonnieres and bouquets looked amazing. Tricia’s flowers elevated our wedding without going overboard, they matched our personalities so well; thank you Tricia!

My husband and I met with four other florist's before meeting with Tricia. I was getting discouraged that a florist would not be able to make our October plum country themed wedding possible. The moment we walked in the door to meet with Tricia she made us feel like we had been friends for years. Tricia is so sweet and personable!

I described my plum country elegance themed wedding to Tricia and she got up, went to her garage and brought some flowers out to show us. She designed our centerpieces right in front of us. Tricia not only understood our dream wedding she made it happen. Tricia was quick to respond to all questions I had and kept me updated at all times.

We were overwhelmed by how sweet Tricia was. My bouquet was everything and more I pictured for our big day. She was even able to attach to charms of our Grandma's who had passed away on my bouquet. Tricia provided a wide variety of flowers and floral designs for our wedding. The moment I walked into the reception and saw the centerpieces I cried. It was perfection and everything I had always dreamed of.

Tricia even designed our cake! Our bakery only baked and frosted the cake. Tricia was the one who placed the cake topper and cascading flowers onto it. The cake was a show stopper at our wedding with how beautiful it was. Some of the flowers on our wedding cake were even from her garden, absolutely gorgeous!

Words cannot express how much Tricia made our dream wedding happen. Tricia became more than our florist she became our friend and I am truly blessed to know her. I am definitely going to be using Tricia for any event we need flowers at, she is the best florist!!

Beautiful Wedding Flowers! posted 11/10/2013 (modified 11/11/2013)

I can't express just how wonderful my wedding flowers were and how great it was to work with Tricia! She is a true artist, professional, and overall nice person. She was so helpful too--she had great recommendations and is an expert in flower arranging, that's for sure! When the bouquets arrived I screamed in excitement because I couldn't believe how gorgeous they were. My bouquet complimented my dress and hair so well, I truly felt like a princess on my wedding day. Thanks so much to Tricia and her team, all of my dreams came true!!! I highly recommend Designs by Tricia for future brides!

Loved my wedding flowers! posted 10/16/2013

My husband and I got married on September 21st 2012 in Laguna Beach at 7 Degrees. Tricia designed our flowers for our wedding and we were so happy with everything. We both live in San Francisco, but wanted to get married where we grew up- in Orange County. We were a little nervous about planning a wedding from far away but Tricia made everything easy. She was always responsive to emails and calls and was flexible in her scheduling to meet with us when we were in Orange County. She also was considerate of budgeting and didn’t try to make you spend more than you wanted, which we encountered with some other florists. Everything turned out beautiful. The flowers we’re exactly as we had discussed and lasted for a while after. (My mom enjoyed them since we were on our honeymoon.) I loved seeing everything come together the day of the wedding and was very pleased with the final result. Also my bouquet was my favorite part! It was so beautiful-- we received lots of compliments on the flowers :) I would definitely recommend Tricia for any brides!

Mrs. Nicole Thomas posted 10/10/2013

I had a very specific idea in mind for my bridal bouquet that involved the use of "magenta" cattleya orchids. When I told Tricia what I wanted I knew I found the right florist for my wedding because she became really excited about my ideas and had beautiful and unique ideas of her own to make everything perfect. When the flowers arrived and weren't the exact color I wanted Tricia fixed it immediately using a very creative technique and the color was absolute perfection. Tricia is passionate about what she does and she cares about the satisfaction of her clients. I would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a floral artist.

Where do I even begin? Tricia was absolutely FABULOUS! I loved working with her and can never thank her enough for making my centerpieces look stunning! She is truly a talented lady who you can trust completely to make your day look amazing. Flowers make the whole day! Working with her was the best decision I could have made!

Thank you Jasmine. It was such a pleasure working with you to make all of your beautiful centerpieces. It was fun finding just the perfect shades of pinks to match both of your gorgeous wedding gowns...the white one AND the pink one. Can't wait to...

Best and sweetest florist in the OC! posted 10/3/2013 (modified 10/5/2013)

I used Tricia for my wedding last October and I could not be happier with my decision to hire her as my wedding florist! I met her for an initial consultation in her home and she was so sweet and made me feel so comfortable. I know nothing about flowers but she was very patient about explaining the different types of flowers, what would be in season, what would get me the look I wanted for less, etc. She also offered a lot of different ideas since I didn't really have any concrete ideas of what I wanted. I explained what I was generally envisioning and showed her some pictures and she totally got it! When I saw all the bouquets and centerpieces she made for the wedding, I was shocked at how perfectly she got the look I was going for! I'm not a big flowers person, but the flowers on my wedding day were so beautiful! I was bummed that they couldn't last forever...

Another thing I loved about Tricia is that she was very mindful of my budget and her prices were very reasonable as far as wedding flowers go. My initial budget was totally unrealistic (I had no idea how much flowers cost!) but she came as close as she could and she offered some suggestions for things to eliminate in order to lessen the cost, without sacrificing the overall look. Talk about customer service and not just trying to upsell to make a buck! In an industry where it seems like it's easy to just try to oversell brides to make more money, I really appreciated this.

Lastly, I loved how quickly she responded to emails. She was always readily accessible and willing to answer emails even at 3am...I'm not even kidding. I got email responses from her really late/early! She is so committed to her clients and making sure they are happy and I loved that about her.

I HIGHLY recommend Tricia to all brides! She is the best at what she does and I loved having her as one of my vendors!

Thank you Pam for this nice review. You were such an easy bride to work with & I loved making all your wedding flowers..especially since they were purple. I loved the lighting at Seven Degrees which made the flowers look even prettier.

Tricia at Designs by Tricia did a fabulous job for our wedding in June. The flowers were just as requested and beautiful! It was a small last minute event so my Mom would be able to come before her Bone Marrow Transplant. Tricia was reasonable, flexible and did an outstanding job even with a time constraint.

Great florist posted 10/1/2013

I found Designs by Tricia on the Knot vendor list for flowers for my 6/23/2013 wedding. She was the first and only person we interviewed for the job. She instantly put my husband and I at ease, as we do not know flowers and had to rely on her expertise to design our wedding flowers. She stayed perfectly well within our budget and was able to create my dream flowers. She did the flowers for all of the bridal party as well as arrangements for every table. Not only was I satisfied with the work, but I had compliments for days on how great our arrangements looked. I'm a very picky person, so it's saying a lot that I was 100% satisfied with her work. I also appreciate her quick replies to my emails and her flexibility when I had an idea I wanted incorporated into the wedding. Thanks Tricia!
