I first discovered Sheila's incredible artistry skills as a florist when I ordered an arrangement for my Mother, from overseas for Mother's Day in 2013. I was blown away at Sheila's kindness, willingness to go above and beyond and the gorgeous floral arrangements she can create!
When James and I became engaged in September of 2013, there was no need to shop around for a florist, we knew immediately that we wanted Sheila to be the florist we worked with. We couldn't be more blown away with how our flowers turned out for our wedding day.
Let me also mention, that I am a girl who loves, loves, loves flowers! I knew that the flowers we used for our wedding would help set the tone, and enhance the ambiance for our big day. Ipomea Floral exceeded every expectation and more!
James and I live overseas in Australia, and as you may know planning a wedding locally can be difficult, yet alone from across the world. Sheila was so incredibly easy to work with, organised, and was able to understand the execute our vision. She is one of the loveliest people to work with, and she always goes above and beyond! Every floral arrangement, centrepiece and flowers for my hair were flawless. I can not recommend Ipomea Floral enough!
Thank you Shelia for helping to make our wedding truly magical!!
Wow! This review nearly brought a tear to my eye! So SWEET! Thanks!
Sheila was one of the best/favorite vendors of my entire wedding! I was so sad I didn't get to see her the day of my wedding because if I had I would have high-fived her, hugged her, and then thanked her for making everything SO beautiful! Sheila was amazing leading up to the wedding as well with answering my questions and making super helpful suggestions. My flowers were honestly the one thing I had no concern about and knew they would be totally amazing. I gave her my ideas and she brought them to life perfectly along with suggesting great ideas along the way. The only sad thing about the whole experience is that the flowers don't last forever- they did last for many many days after the wedding day however! :-) She sent me photos of all the flowers individually that she planned to use which was so helpful for someone who is visual like me, she was super affordable, and just a pleasure to work with. If you are still looking for an amazing florist after reading this review I can make things so much more simple for you and say HIRE SHEILA, SHE IS AMAZING AND YOU WON'T REGRET IT! Now you can check flowers off the list!
I wish your flowers lasted forever too! But I guess that's part of the fun, isn't it? The best things in life don't last forever! :) You're wonderful- thanks for such a heartfelt review!
I met with Ipomea with a vision of the flowers including colors of eggplant, orange and bright green....
Ipomea listened to my ideas and viewed a few examples from magazines and she just ran with my vision and created the most beautiful bouquets!!!! She emailed me pictures of a variety of different flowers to help me cut costs and ensure my flowers were in-season. She took my color selections and made the flowers compliment each other wonderfully. She let my image be individual and did not steer me toward original or traditional in any sense, but also was there to provide insight on all the different flower selections I needed to consider that a bride may forget, i.e. pew flowers, cake flowers, etc. My center pieces were "master pieces". I had compliments from all my guests at my wedding. I can not find enough words to compliment Ipomea's customer service, creativity, and ease to work with.
Thank you so much for this kind review! You had such a unique and vibrant vision and it was a pleasure to bring your vision to life!
Our wedding was 9.20.14 and Sheila the owner of Ipomea Floral Design couldn't have been more amazing!!! From the very first email and initial meeting I felt at ease. Searching for vendors is so stressful and it was so re leaving to find someone with creativity, experience and such a warm personality. We also loved that she was a local small business owner, but rest assure there is nothing "small business" about her work. Sheila guided us through every step in the process and I never worried about anything! The end result was amazing and we absolutely loved our flowers! Every single centerpiece was taken at our wedding by our guests because they loved them that much! So if you have no idea where to start or have been planning your wedding for years, Ipomea is your go to florist!
Thanks for trusting me with your flowers, you have great taste and it was a joy to work with you!
From when I first got engaged I knew I wanted to use Impomea as my florist. I've seen many weddings they've done in person and also in magazines. Working with Sheila was so easy and she worked with my budget from the start.
I defiantly got stressed throughout the planning process but my flowers were honestly the one thing I was always excited about and Sheila took the stress away. She was always very responsive when I had any questions.
I had Impomea do all of my flowers from my bouquet to the table arrangements and I'm so happy I did. The flowers transformed my venue and people are still telling me how beautiful they were.
I can't thank them enough!
Aww so glad you and your guests loved the flowers! You've got GREAT taste!! :)
Sheila was our florist for our wedding last weekend and did an amazing job! I knew nothing about flowers when we started discussing. Sheila was very patient in sifting through my pintrest board and helped us figure out exactly what we wanted.
Sheila was also very respectful of our budget. She provided very helpful suggestions for how we could trim our budget. It was very much a team effort to decide on the right types of flowers and overall arrangements to not break the bank. She provided a general dollar range for each particular flower and helped us understand which options were pricier/more affordable. She was also very good with immediately responding back to emails and coordinating the drop off of flowers. This was almost effortless.
Finally, Sheila just has excellent taste and can run with any ideas you give her. After I told Sheila our color palette, she added some gold touches to my bouquet, as well as my sisters' bouquets. This was very eye-catching and looked great in pictures, not to mention something I would not have thought of. I never felt like I had to hold her hand or walk her through exactly how I wanted the arrangement. I felt completely comfortable letting her run with it and it paid off...because everything was beautiful on the wedding day! Sheila does a sneak peak with every bridal bouquet she works on. From the moment the picture went up on Friday until we left on the honeymoon, I could not stop looking at my bouquet!
Thanks! I LOVED working with you and I loved your bouquet too! :)
I had the pleasure of working with Sheila and Ipomea Floral Design for my wedding this past June. If I could rate this vendor 6 stars I would. From the very beginning of the planning process, Sheila understood my vision and made me feel more than confident that she could create this vision within my budget. I was one of those brides who checked in a lot, and changed my mind a few times. Sheila was never bothered and always moved with the flow and reassured me. We did a lot of sharing photos on pinterest and emailing ideas back and forth. Sheila has a passion for and truly knows flowers. She had such great advice around what would look good together and what options we had if flowers weren't available or were out of budget. On our wedding day, I was completely blow away by my flowers and centerpieces! I received so many compliments that they were the most beautiful flowers people had seen at a wedding and it all turned out exactly how I had envisioned!
Beyond producing a great product, Sheila is one of the most friendly and easiest people to work. She treated me like I was her only bride and made the planning process so incredibly easy and seamless. I would absolutely recommend Ipomea Floral design to any bride! They truly helped make my wedding a dream come true.
You're so sweet! I'd rate you a "6 stars" Bride! :)
Sheila is a dream to work with! Of course, I don't know much about flowers but Sheila really does and so I felt totally comfortable telling her what I wanted for our wedding and letting her work her magic! She took some of my ideas and inspiration photos and created arrangements and bouquets that fit into MY budget. She was totally honest about the cost and what types of flowers she could get with my budget. She was on-time to deliver our flowers and made sure that the arrangements and bouquets got to the right place at the right time. I also felt like she really enjoyed designing our flowers and took so much pride in making our day so beautiful. Her enthusiasm and passion really produces an outstanding product! Would definitely use Ipomea Floral Design again!
I LOVED seeing you holding your bouquet! It made my day, you looked picture perfect!
I used Ipomea Floral Design for my wedding this summer and I am struggling to find the words to describe just how amazed I was with our floral arrangements! I met with Sheila to discuss what I wanted and having not ever envisioned my wedding ahead of time I was all over the place! Sheila was beyond amazing! She helped me to create my perfect vision for our wedding. It was immediately obvious how passionate Sheila was about her job and her role in our wedding. She sat with me and took the time to really help me narrow in the look we were going for. She was incredibly knowledgeable about what flowers were in bloom and what flowers held up best in heat considering our wedding was mid July. She kept in contact with me throughout the entire planning and answered all questions I had. She seemed as excited for our wedding as we were and she really cared about making our dream wedding a reality. When she showed up with the flowers on our wedding day, I was speechless. They were beautiful and again I am struggling to find the words to justify how amazed I was with Sheila's work. Everyone at our wedding was so impressed with our arrangements and had nothing but great things to say. Even our photographers couldn't stop taking pictures of our arrangements because of how beautiful they were. If you are looking for a floral designer, Ipomea is the only way to go! I will never even think of using a different floral designer again. Sheila is amazingly talented and such an amazing person at heart - and it shines through each arrangement she creates.
Wow- now you've made me speechless! Thanks so much!
I was so thankful throughout the entire process to have Sheila from Ipomea as my florist. From the first meeting she really took an interest in the style of the wedding and what we wanted. Throughout the entire process, through all the last minute changes and alterations, Sheila was always kind, accommodating, and thoughtful.I never for a moment was worried about anything concerning our flowers with Sheila, and I cannot even describe how wonderful all of the bouquets, arrangements, etc. were on the day of. Sheila appreciated my vision and not only executed it but made it better than I ever could have imagined.
Your vision was perfect and I was thrilled to be a part of it! xo!
I would recommend Ipomea Floral to anyone! Sheila was so great and easy to work with. It was really easy to bounce ideas off of her and I never felt like she wasn't "getting it" when it comes to what we had envisioned. And in the end the centerpieces, boutonnieres and bouquets were GORGEOUS and exactly what we had talked about. We didn't have a wedding planner and anyone in my shoes will know that feeling your way through the confusing world of vendors, budgets, timelines and guests lists can be stressful. What helps the most is if you surround yourself with vendors you get along with well and trust to do a good job. If I ever had any questions or the occasional last minute change Sheila was always open and accommodating. And another huge plus for the anxious bride, she replied promptly to any emails! Surprisingly, not all vendors have the same professional work habits. Overall our experience with Sheila and Ipomea was stress free and fantastic!
Loved working with you too! You'd never know you didn't have a planner, your wedding was so beautiful!
I randomly found Ipomea Floral Design and so happy that I did! Sheila was so professional and absolutely wonderful to work with. Her knowledge of flowers was super impressive. She did the flowers for my wedding and they were absolutely stunning, true show stoppers. I had a barn wedding and the flowers were so colorful and fit my theme perfectly, everyone was talking about them.
Ipomea was also not crazy expensive as I was on a budget. Sheila worked with me to stay within it while not losing site of my vision. She suggested cheaper similar flowers to stay within budget. I cannot recommend Ipomea Floral Design more. Look no further!
Oh I am SO glad to hear how much you liked your flowers! They truly were some of my favorite arrangements ever!
Our wedding flowers were absolutely stunning! I feel extremely lucky to have had such beautiful blooms to compliment our wonderful wedding day.
The creativity, attention to detail and thought put into our arrangements was amazing! My bouquet was even more breathtaking then I could have imagined, I carried it around with me all night because it was too beautiful to not have by my side.
Not only were the flowers gorgeous but working with Ipomea was fun, professional and left me feeling 100% confidence in their team.
Cannot recommend Ipomea Floral enough! We could not have been happier!
Woo! Your vision for your wedding came together perfectly and I was honored that you trusted me with your florals!
While I did many of the florals for our wedding myself, our venue had several large mantels (including at the exact spot where we were tying the knot), which I had no idea how to decorate. This is where Sheila came in, and I could not have made a better choice!
I had a color scheme, and a general feel for what I wanted, but at our first meeting, she helped me come up with a plan that would look beautiful, and still keep me in budget. Over e-mail, we narrowed down the flower choices. Since the wedding was in December, affordable flower choices were somewhat limited, but Sheila did not let that stop her, and she came up with some gorgeous colors and flower/greenery combinations.
On the day of the wedding, I was thrilled with the arrangements, as well as the corsages for the mothers. I wish I could have preserved those flowers forever! Her overall service was perfect, the flowers were gorgeous, and the value was better than any other florist we looked at. If I was getting married all over again, I would hire Ipomea again in a heartbeat!
Thanks for taking the time to review! Your wedding was totally romantic and I loved working with you!
Sheila totally exceeded our expectations for our wedding. When I entered the reception my breath was taken away, I absolutely could not believe how perfect everything looked. She took my vision and executed perfectly, and not only that but when I shared my ideas she had great recommendations to cut down on costs while keeping things elegant and classy. Throughout the planning process, Sheila e-mailed and texted promptly. I would highly recommend Ipomea to anyone!
Thanks for reviewing and sharing your experience!! Xoxo
Their arrangements are very unique and elegant. Do a great job and have so many different styles!
My husband and I used Ipomea Floral Design for our October 18, 2013 wedding. Sheila was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very good with communicating back and forth with how everything was going to work, from style of flowers to delivery. My bridesmaid bouquets are still looking beautiful after almost 2 weeks after the wedding. I cannot recommend Ipomea Floral Design enough. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! We cannot wait to use you again :o)
I worked recently with Sheila at Ipomea Floral and was thrilled with the service received from beginning to end. From our first discussion, Sheila was extremely professional, excited and knowledgeable. I gave her a color scheme that I was looking to use and she sent me multiple options within my price range. Additionally, the delivery of the flowers was flawless.
I was able to get everything that I wanted and needed for the budget that I had in mind and Sheila was phenomenal about communicating before the big day. She was almost as excited about the colors and the event as a whole as I was! I would absolutely use Ipomea again and plan to do so for all of my future floral needs!
Thanks! I love how everything turned out too! :).
When I initially met with Sheila Jung (the owner) my consultation, I was blown away by her level of professionalism and awesome personality. I shared my vision and she saw it right away and we both became excited about my big day. Communication leading up to the wedding was responsive and timely. The big day- when I saw my flowers the day of the wedding I cried because they were stunning. Vibrant fall colors with wonderful flowers choices. From the centerpieces to the ceremony flowers to the personal flowers/bouquets...all were gorgeous. I highly recommend Imponea Floral Design for your floral design needs for your wedding. You will not regret it.
I loved your color choices and working with you was so much fun! Congratulations!!
First off, I didn't realize how hard finding a wedding florist would be! I was interested in unique floral designs (nothing ridiculous, just simple/elegant) that were moderately priced in the Chicagoland region. Phone call after frustrating phone call, florists would quote me 3-4k for a Saturday wedding! Being on a more limited budget, obviously that was way over what we could afford or were willing to spend on flowers. Finally after searching the Knot, I found Ipomea Floral Design. I contacted Sheila, the owner, via email and she got back to me within a matter of minutes. That sort of quick communication went on throughout my experience. I met with her and she had fabulous ideas & took the time to really understand my vision. She also would work within our budget. My fiancé & I booked her right away. During the entire time working with Sheila, she was always so responsive to my ideas and really took the time to listen to my questions & my input. She kept me informed of any changes and was so great to work with. I was so happy with all our wedding flowers! We received so many compliments. If you are looking for fabulous service & flowers, contact Ipomea Floral Design!
Thanks for the review! :)
