Ipomea Floral Design did all of the flowers for our wedding last weekend and we could not have been happier with the results! The owner was so wonderful to work with throughout the entire wedding process. She is very organized, hardworking, and I felt very confident in her skills and abilities. She listened very carefully to my "vision" of what I wanted, gave great suggestions and ultimately created exactly what I had hoped for and even more! Their attention to detail is impeccable! We had so many guests commenting on how beautiful the flowers were - even our wedding coordinator was asking for their business card!
Another reason we loved working with Ipomea Floral was they were great about working within our budget. They had great suggestions for flowers we could interchange to achieve the same look, but not blow our budget. I always felt like they were looking out for our best interest.
Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Ipomea Floral Design. I honestly can't think of a single complaint regarding their services. I will continue to use Ipomea Floral Designs for all of my floral needs in the future!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

Having a wedding downtown Chicago made it tempting to overspend on big name vendors. I am SO glad I took the time to shop around for a fairly priced florist. Majority of wedding florists downtown have a minimum of $3-4k on weekend weddings. Sheila worked with my budget and vision and gave us the most beautiful, simple, elegant, classy, clean centerpieces and bouquets- that matched my budget, taste and venue. Our reception was at the Union League club- which has a lot of beauty and detail in the actual venue- so I wanted understated flowers that didn't take away from the room, but were still elegant and fresh. We also wanted a few specific details incorporated- including apples and ribbon- which were executed perfectly. Sheila took my vision and made it come to life more beautifully than I could have imagined. If you are looking for a florist who's love and passions shows through in her work- and communicates promptly and straightforward- Ipomea is for you. I will wholeheartedly recommend Ipomea to all friends getting married in the Chicagoland area.

I used Ipomea Floral Design for my wedding this past weekend and I cannot even begin to express how satisfied i am with the end result! When i first met with Sheila, I made it very clear to her that while I did not know much about flowers, I did know that there was not much room in the budget for flowers. She worked with my budget and never tried to pressure me to spend more. I simply told Sheila the colors of my wedding and advised her of the location of the wedding and she created the most beautiful floral arrangements for the ceremony. Our guests were equally impressed and a couple of them even asked if they could take one home!
If anybody is looking for a florist for a wedding or ANY special event, you NEED to contact Ipomea Floral Design. Sheila and Alissa were so amazing to work with and I never felt the need to check on them to make sure everything was in good order. Sheila stayed in constant contact with me and even sent me emails with her flower choices to ensure we remained on the same page. Long story short....Contact Ipomea Floral Design now if you are looking for a florist for any reason!

From the moment we met Sheila, we loved her! Her attention to detail, knowledge of flowers and follow through on our wedding day all was amazing!! We met with her several times and had numerous communications with her all to put together the perfect flowers! She made a truly unique bouquet for me that she made by hand, and even added a last minute change to my centerpieces at the last moment-which was fantastic! She was amazing and I highly recommend Ipomea Floral Design!

Sheila does an amazing job not only delivering beautiful and high quality work but she's a really sweet person to work with. I wanted a little less traditional flowers and set up for my wedding and she was very knowledgable and helpful to make my ideas come to life. I couldn't stop telling my husband how much I loved my bouquet the whole day :). I definitely recommend her!

Sheila was a pleasure to work with and made the wedding process so much easier. Not only did she work within our price range and offer suggestions for our desired look, but the flowers she presented us with on our wedding day were spectacular. I could not have asked for a better florist!

Sheila, the owner and floral designer, could not have been any easier to work with. At our initial consultation, I told her that coral peonies were my dream bouquet, knowing full well that it was extremely unlikely they would be available in July. I don't know what kind of magic she used, but all of the bouquets incorporated the most beautiful coral peonies!
Sheila shared suggestions on how to maximize our floral budget and was happy to work within our limits. Other florists I had met with during the planning process had only quoted me on the flowers I chose, not offering suggestions or flower substitutions to reduce cost. Sheila was forthcoming with these thoughts and was willing to give me her opinion when I asked for it. She was happy to listen to my ideas and vision for our flowers, but also shaped it into something even better. It is 3 days after our wedding, and our bouquets are still beautiful!

I worked with Sheila for my wedding this past June and I honestly can't say enough about how amazing the experience was. I had been cast aside by several other florists before contacting Sheila because of my budget and was relieved that Sheila was more than willing to work with me. Since I knew close to nothing about flowers I was a bit overwhelmed with where to start, but after the first few minutes of meeting with Sheila I could tell that I was in good hands. Sheila guided me through every step, including providing photos of flowers and price ranges to get started. She really listened to all of the my ideas about what I wanted for the arrangements, as well asked for photos of my dress, bridesmaids dresses, and event locations to help her better understand the look and feel of my wedding as a whole. She was able to use a photo of my grandmother's wedding bouquet for inspiration for my own bouquet (which I adored!), and even suggested using different shades of flowers for the bridesmaids bouquets based on the color of their dresses (each had a different shade of purple) which looked absolutely amazing! I literally started to cry when she brought the bouquets to me the morning of the wedding because they were so gorgeous! My photographer even commented that she had never seen such beautiful and unique bouquets! The centerpieces at the reception were amazing and were more perfect than I could have envisioned, which just goes to show how good she is at what she does. On top of that, the flowers lasted nearly a week, and we used most of the centerpieces from the reception at a barbecue we hosted the following day.
Overall Sheila was an absolute joy to work with. She was the one vendor I was working with that I didn't feel I needed to check up on. I knew that she would deliver on everything; look, price, and quality. She is very professional and I always felt that making sure the flowers at my wedding were everything I dreamt of was as important to her as it was to me. She has an amazing eye for what she does and you can tell that she is truly passionate about her work. If you want absolutely stunning flowers at your wedding, or for any other occasion, Sheila at Ipomea is the person to talk to.

Sheila was amazing to work with! I don't know too much about floral arrangements and was somewhat dreading the process for picking (and paying for!) arrangements. Sheila took the time to explain to me which flowers would work best for the time of year and size of the centerpieces.
She made sure I was comfortable with the arrangements and even sent a picture of what the flowers would look like together after sending several options at various price points.
I look forward to working with Ipomea Floral Design again on future events!

The flowers looked amazing! Sheila was very helpful and did a wonderful job

We were so happy with our flowers! Sheila did a wonderful job listening to what I wanted... because our bouquets ended up looking EXACTLY as I had hoped (maybe even better!) She was so easy to work with and made the process a lot less stressful. I got lots of compliments on our flowers from our guests too:)

We sat down with a bunch of florists all in one day and had two complete extremes in the morning. One was super pricey and one was super cheap and neither were giving us options in our price range that we liked. We sat down with Sheila and she asked us what we liked and worked with our price range! She was so patient with my mom who wanted everything, well for super cheap, and most importantly she helped my mom to understand why the pricing was as it was. No matter what your price range she will find beautiful flowers and bring them on time to the event! She made sure we had everything we needed to keep our flowers fresh. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Anyone looking for a florist for a wedding or special event, you MUST contact Ipomea Floral Design!! Such a great group of ladies to work with! The owner, Sheila, has an amazing personality and took the picture in my head and brought it to life! And can you believe it, she did this with keeping our budget in mind and never once giving us a quote that was over (unlike other florist we meet with). Our flowers were delivered to us beautiful and on time! I have absolutely now complaints!!! This is one vender we used for our wedding that we would not do anything differently and would use them again and again! We have referred Ipomea Floral Design to other friends and their flowers were just as beautiful and the couple has commented on how professional Sheila is! Don't wait, call Ipomea now!!
