If you are having a wedding in New Orleans, there is NOT a better florist than Ken. He is a true artist in what he does - and I could not have asked for better bouquets, floral arrangements, etc. at my wedding at the Elm's Mansion. I myself, told Ken the types of flowers and the... Read More shades of color I'd like to have - and he did the rest with the final product exceeding all of my floral expectations. Better yet, I drove home from New Orleans 2 days after my wedding with my bouquet and all of my bridesmaids (6) bouquets. Upon returning home, I was astonished to see that they had not been damaged or ruined by being thrown into the car with all of our luggage. In fact, I placed them all in separate vases and watched the flowers grow more beautiful by the day (not joking) until I decided to dry them out for sake's keep a week 1/2 later. Given this, Ken delivers the very best product (floral design/flowers/etc) than you could ever ask for! Lastly, you could not work with a better vendor then Ken - his personality is to die for. He is a gem! Thanks KEN!!!!!!! Love, Sara DeJay Armstrong - Willis and Jack Turner Willis - 3.5.16 - Elm's Mansion - New Orleans

I am so thankful that my husband and I hired Fabulous Flowers for our wedding day. In learning about Ken’s (the owner’s) background and expertise, I was confident that he would do an incredible job but we were truly blown away by his exceptional work in everything from the... Read More bouquet designs to the ceremony pedestals. Ken was sure to ask targeted, thoughtful questions from the very beginning to understand our vision and preferences for our wedding day. In particular, he understood our preference for incorporating flowers from the outdoor ceremony into the reception venue decor and immediately had great ideas and solutions for laying out the flowers in the reception space. He exceeded our expectations in creating simple, elegant floral designs that complemented everything from our attire to the aesthetics of both venues. We could not be happier with Fabulous Flowers and highly recommend Ken to any future NOLA bride and groom!

I'm going to be honest - I just couldn't find the bride bone in my body that made me care about center pieces. It wasn't there. I could barely recall what any centerpiece looked like at the dozen weddings I had attended in the past two years. Who, I thought, was going to... Read More remember mine? Would I remember mine? Ken - despite my total lack of enthusiasm and zero vision - was able to make absolutely stunning centerpieces that worked perfectly for my wedding. He knew what to ask me. He knew what suggestions to make. And he just did a great job pulling it all together. Everything was beautiful. He got everything there on time - despite a crazy rain storm the day of my wedding. And everything looked perfect. I couldn't have dreamed up a better set of flowers. And he worked with me to find what would work in my budget. Everything he did from day one to the wedding was perfect. I highly recommend him.
