Used Fascinare for my wedding flowers for my wedding in August 2012. This was a destination wedding and planning from New York was very painful. In my delusional state, I did not physically do down to Los Angeles until the day BEFORE the wedding. This was slightly psychotic, but to my surprise, Fascinare took care of me as a walk in and were able to fix all my crazy "but I want it this way" requests. They were great communicating over email, and the computer rendering is awesome! Joy used computer to animate the ceremony site and my table the months before hand. So I can know how it is going to look exactly what's it going to be.
Joy is awesome! I barged in with orange ribbon and starfish from Shell World and they told me not to worry and that everything will be arranged by tomorrow, and it was! Flowers for my hair were magically delivered to the spa, flowers for the cake appeared as scheduled at the baker, invisible men showed up on the beach and set up the floral canopy along with all the other accents and then somehow moved it all to the reception area (I actually did not see these people, who they were and where they came from, I don't know, but they got the job done!)

We had Fascinare do our wedding. From start to finish, they were magnificent. They provided very helpful suggestions on flower arrangements for our wedding. WHat I thought was helpful was that after going to umpteen different florists, they were the first to explain the suitabilities of hydrangeas in a bouquet.
This may seem like a small thing, but it showed me that they took the time to educate their customers, and that's a rare and valuable thing in the retail world. When they talked about availability of flowers, there was little hemming or hawing, just yes/no or if they weren't sure, they double checked on the availability of each flower we wanted and then gave us a definite answer later on.
The wedding day deliveries went off without a hitch, in fact they were even early. The arrangements were magnificent.
Best of all was the little touches. A small vase of flowers at our head table congratulating us on our special day AND an e-mail the day after from the ownersagain congratulating us and thanking us for choosing them.
Some of the vendors we had involved with our wedding were complete nightmares. This place is an absolute dream. It's pricey, be warned, but it's worth every cent.

Fascinare made my (gorgeous) wedding flowers. For the bouquet, I told them I wanted something big, vibrant and rustic but not too fussy, made a few special requests, and left it in their expert hands. When I got there to pick it up, they handed me a bouquet that was bigger, lusher, and brighter than I had dared to imagine. It was simply the most beautiful floral arrangement I have ever seen (and I've been to some really classy weddings). They accommodated all of my requests, some of which were kind of tricky, without compromising the simplicity and tastefulnes of the arrangement. It also lasted well: even though it was out of water all day for the wedding, it still looked almost perfect four days later.

oh dear where do i start~ let's just say i'm super satisfied with Fascinare's services that Joyee & her team provided for my 10.10.10 special wedding :)
Although I didn't hire Fascinare as my day of wedding planner, I hired them (Joyee & her team) as my florist, overall decor and catering.
Let's just say, i'm a very happy client & friend...
I love Pink, and i mean i LOVE PINK.. so my wedding theme color theme has to be pink.. and i picked Fuchsia (Hot Pink) and Lime Green..
How we met:
Joyee is actually a mutual friend of mine. Don't worry, no bias here for this review :) I didn't know that Fascinare offers wedding planning @ first, so it didn't cross my mine to inquiry about their services @ the very beginning~ somehow thru a casual conversation, Joyee and I start talking about my wedding and from there it just took off..
Joyee is a very professional, knowledgeable and a very talented event planner! She realllly sweep my feet with her 110*+% dedication on her job and on her client.
I did lot of research on my own to get an idea how i want the decor would look like for the outdoor ceremony, so i started off sharing with her my idea.
She was very patient and listened very carefully about what i was looking for and how i envision my wedding.
she listened to our stories, how me and my hubby met to get to the details.. god know how many hours we spent on our 1st consultation meeting ( i don't even know if we have a formal consultation, in a good way, b/c everything just flow when we start talking. now, this is what you call "meant to be!" :D )
Counting down to the big day:
Getting to the detail -
Joyee and Kelly (her assistant) met with me and my husband MANY times during this planning process. My ceremony venue and reception venus is 40 mins apart
Joyee and Kelly drove more than once to meet with us.. from meeting @ both of the venus to meeting @ the local coffee shop.. you name it, we did it :)
Floral / Venue / Cake Decor:
Joyee and kelly went above and beyond on the research, lots of email exchange, phone & online communication. they really follow up well.
like many brides and groom, i was too working on a budget. To ensure what i'm looking for is still within my budget, joyee visited downtown LA one weekend morning to self pick the flowers to be used for my wedding and negotiate the price for me. well done! :)
i love fuchsia PINK but i also love blink! Joyee did a nice touch on my bouquet by adding blinks on the handle to match with my blinked gown~ :) happy happy!
Venue Design and Layout:
Joyee is so professional that she e-draft me a few venue decor design for proof .. i love it at the first sight!
she suggested using a mix and match fuchsia &amp;amp;npink lantern as my ceremony venue decor and reuse 'em as my reception backdrop and that i could save some $. it worked out so prefect for me! :D
The Cake Decor:
i ordered a fuchsia polka dot cake and joyee finished it with a nice fuchsia floral design! i got sooo many compliments on the cake and on the overall decor!
The Catering (Hors D'oeuvres):
We have joyee & team to cater @ our outdoor ocean view ceremony. the Hors D'oeuvres was AMAZING! i wish i can go to the details here but spaces is limited here LOL
Overall i'm a super happy client! Highly recommend everyone to Fascinare! Thank You Joyee and Team!
