ng arrangements that reflected our style and heightened the romance of the day.
What's more, Sheila helped us design a gorgeous arrangement on a circular wooden arch for what would have been our outdoor ceremony, had it not ended up raining all day. Instead, her quick-thinking team moved the arch into the plan B space -- a cozy historic barn on the property -- where it created a show-stopping and unexpected (yet somehow intentional-looking) backdrop for some of the most special moments of the day, not to mention numerous photos.
Three months later, and guests are still raving about how beautiful and unique the florals were, while I relive them nearly daily through our photos and videos.
Thank you, Elegant Events Florist, for being an indelible part of our day.

The biggest mistake of my wedding planning experience was hiring Sheila Corbett and trusting her with the floral vision of our wedding. Despite many conversations and sharing our feedback with her multiple times, many elements that we said we d...
id not like or wanted to see changed ended up in the floral arrangements on our wedding day. I was so disappointed when I saw all of the arrangements her team created, except my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets. She contracted with Nisha from LAX States to create the Mandap for our Indian wedding and we were incredibly disappointed with the final product. The Mandap swayed dangerously during the ceremony and the furniture that we rented through them sunk during the ceremony. We never had the opportunity to speak with the Mandap designer directly, and Sheila never shared her information with us. Sheila did not take our feedback throughout the planning process into account, did not clearly communicate with us throughout the experience working with her and did not share critical limitations of our design and budget until AFTER our wedding when we did a review that took nearly a month after our wedding day to schedule. In that review, it was clear that she didn't listen or retain the feedback that we provided her throughout the design process, and was not receptive to our feedback or took sincere accountability for her mistakes. I've connected with recent brides of Sheila's upon sharing my experience in other forums and they have unfortunately shared similar experiences. Sheila was the most difficult vendor to work with out of my vendor team and I hope that sharing these thoughts prevents other couples from going through the same (expensive) disappointment that we did.

re the ceremony began so I did not have any of my flowers for my photos with my bridesmaids, individual bridal photos and family photos. It added a lot of extra stress hoping they’d arrive on time for the ceremony. The wristlet flowers for the mothers/grandmothers were not the color of the flowers that we had discussed. Therefore they did not match the dresses as planned. We had also agreed that some of the centerpieces would start outside and line the aisle at the ceremony location, which did not happen. Therefore there was nothing lining the aisle. All in all the flowers were beautiful and I was pleased however, not everything was executed as discussed which was disappointing.

ccommodating and understanding they were while also not making us feel like we *had* to spend extra money. Once I explained and showed pictures of my vision, they broke down everything by cost and options of different florals. I appreciated the breakdown because this was not my field of expertise, and it showed that I could really trust them. About a week before the wedding day the company reached back out to check in to make sure we had no second thoughts or extra questions. Upon our big day, arriving to the venue, the florals were already set up and it was everything we could have imagined and more. At the end of the night a member of the florists team came to break down the remaining decorations. We were able to re-use pergola and table bouquets used in our ceremony for our reception, which I appreciated because I did not want to just use the florals once in our wedding. Overall, we could not recommend going with Elegant Events Florists enough because of the excellent communication throughout the beginning to the end, the accommodation of our budget, the trust they always assured us of, and the execution on our wedding day.

She emailed me a week before the wedding to tell me she couldn't get the flowers I had wanted- fine, no big deal, but she wanted to substitute much less expensive flowers with no mention of refunding me the difference in price. I had to ask for it. I had to email her again the day before the wedding to find out if she'd gotten the original flowers or not. When they were delivered, I contacted her again regarding the fact that the flowers were wrong- I'd asked for white roses, the ones we received were purple, and the lily of the valley were brown. I'd asked for floor length white ribbon to wrap the bouquets, and got some odd, sheer cream color. She never had the decency to respond.
