Iris is absolutely amazzzzing! Working with Nicole was a dream to work with. She was so responsive, creative, and worked well within my budget, even suggesting ways to cut cost without sacrificing aesthetic. But most importantly, she brought my floral vision to life flawlessly.... Read More When I saw the final product, my jaw hit the floor. It was absolutely STUNNING. Everyone still can't stop talking about how beautiful the florals were! I'm so glad we chose Iris. Thank you SO much Nicole!!

Nicole is fantastic!! She was so accommodating to my (very) last-minute requests, and was very pleasant to work with. She was also willing to work with my limited floral budget, even getting me flowers that other florists said wouldn't be available in my price range. I...

Stunning work

I LOVED my flowers. I cannot say enough about Nicole from IRIS. I'm not exaggerating when I say the final product took my breath away. I can only pray my photographer got LOTS of photos of her work because the night flew by so fast I didn't get to appreciate each arrangement... Read More like I wish I could have. Beautiful Work: One of our guests is a florist and she sought me out to specifically say how fantastic the flowers were. When I show people pictures they inevitably comment on how gorgeous my bouquet was. The quality of the flowers was superb. Huge, fresh, vibrant flowers. Affordable: Her proposal was by far the lowest we received and it was exactly on budget. It seems like many of the florists we talked too took our budget as a jumping off point to double up on, but Nicole was very respectful and found a way to do what we wanted with what we gave her. Attitude: She was very laid back and positive. I can't say it better than she just *got* what our vision was. She was hands on during our consultation showing us arrangements and vases. Even the day before the wedding when I requested a hairpiece for my reception she said "no problem!" and it was waiting for me when I arrived. I 100% recommend IRIS for your wedding!

Great job, Nicole nailed the design I was looking for! I worried about the hydrangeas looking wilted in the New Orleans heat, but they looked perfectly fresh!

If I could give IRIS a 10 star review I would. Nicole came up with beautiful, unusual arrangements that fit my style perfectly - she managed to work an artichoke into my bouquet!

IRIS was wonderful to work with for our wedding at Broussard's and I would recommend them to any bride.

Nicole was amazing! My ceremony and reception were breath taking. She did a phenomenal job. She had everything that I wanted, down to the smallest of details.

Iris florals was so easy to work with! Most of our transactions were done electronically, and because of that, I was able to add/remove items from our contract and communicate ideas very easily. Everything was beautiful and I couldn't give higher praise!

Our flowers were so gorgeous!! I sent Nicole photos of the styles I liked from Pinterest and she was able to create exactly what I wanted within our budget. Our wedding was in the french quarter.

As a desstination bride in LA it was so important for everything to go without a hitch! Obviously that's not possible :) But we got pretty close! Our day ended up pouring rain on our outside wedding, and Iris did such a great job on matching all of our requests and moving them... Read More indoors. She perfectly executed practically every single flower arrangement we asked for, a very pleasant surprise on our cloudy day! The only reason for the four stars instead of five is that there was a problem with my bridal bouquet. I very clearly asked for a cascading bouquet and send five or six pictures clearly showing what I wanted. My bouquet was nowhere near cascading, and was just a simple handheld one. When my mother-in-law tried to contact the florist to tell her the flowers were incorrect, she refused to correct the problem and was snippy with her. So I missed out on my dream bouquet, which was very sad. However, every other decoration she did was absolutely perfect, and we really appreciated all of her hard work!

Nicole was great to work with. She was able to take a picture I showed her and perfectly pinpoint the style I was hoping for. I was able to have some flowers that are out of season while still being very affordable. I am in love with my flowers. She was also very accommodating... Read More with my desire to have each centerpiece different and worked well with me giving her about 40 different bud vases to use instead of actual arrangements. The flowers were beautiful and my guests enjoyed taking home a small vase at the end of the night.

I would strongly encourage you to meet with her if you are looking for something different than your typical rose and baby's breath arrangement. Fantastic experience.
