o respond, which should’ve been our first hint that they would be difficult to work with. They responded saying they are available on our wedding day and to fill out the form to get our quote and get things rolling. We filled out the form and they said they would have the quote ready within 1-2 weeks and we would proceed from there. 2 weeks came and went and we hadn’t heard anything. The same day I was going to call, we received an e-mail stating they were booked for March and could not accommodate us, this was after they told us we could. They then referred us to basic flower delivery services that don’t specialize in weddings. From all the communications we’ve had, it appears as if they do not want to take on our wedding as it is very small and we only requested a bridal bouquet, 3 boutonnières and a flower crown. They come off as money hungry in everything from their communications to their form. The unfortunate thing is that my fiancé and I would have paid whatever they quoted to make our day special, whether it was $300 or $2500. Now, we only have a month to find a florist that can accommodate us. Very disappointed. If you’re not a big wedding, I do not recommend this money hungry company.

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.

My flowers from IRIS floral were beautiful, and exactly what i wanted. I was working overseas, and my husband is in the military, so we didnt have much time to dedicate to planning, and everything was done long distance.
We worked via email, s...
ending pictures and ideas back and forth, and they were so accomodating.
We got simple arrangements, as the rest of the party had extravegant dresses. The wedding dress was red, and black bridesmaid dresses, so we got simple white hydrangeas and David Austin white rose bouquets.
We had two tall arrangements at the alter, flower girl basket and crown, and sprays for the mothers and sisters.
All the arrangements were exactly as i pictured, and perfect for our occasion. We couldnt have asked for more.

I had a destination wedding during the 1st weekend of JazzFest this past April 25th, 2015, which was a task unto itself. I really struggled with what I wanted to do for flowers as I know nothing about the art. But let me tell you, Nicole did ...
such an incredible job! My theme was woodsy vintage where I used antique glass bottles and vases along with glass terrariums, cigar boxes, and antique doilies. My vision was to use moss and wildflowers with a few formal flowers (hydrangeas, rununculous). Not an easy task. Nicole worked with my elements perfectly! The best part was being able to inspect every piece as I packed up the vases for shipping back home. Only then was I able to see the all the detail and hard work that she put into every piece! She was so great to work with, was always responsive, more than willing to work with my budget, and such a professional. My only regret is that we never got to meet face-to-face! I highly recommend her!!!

We were planning an outdoor wedding in a manicured setting, so we didn't need much by way of floral arrangements. We were also a wedding on a budget, so we couldn't afford centerpieces for the tables or over the top ceremony pieces. We wanted t...
o find a florist who was willing to work with us on that and not try to pressure us into things we didn't need, and we definitely found that with IRIS.
We interviewed three different florists and were very specific with the type of things we were looking for.
Our first florist was Nicole at IRIS. She was really friendly, great at brainstorming ideas, and even showed us a bunch of different floral options to get an idea of what we were looking for. She totally understood the budget we were working with and didn't bat an eye at ours being a same-sex wedding. When she sent us a quote, it was very thorough-- she gave specific notes of the flowers she planned to use and the kind of displays she would do and told us we could change and cut anything at any time.
Another florist we met was uncomfortable with the idea of same-sex weddings and asked really inappropriate questions (like which one of us would be the groom) and came back with a quote that was double what IRIS gave us.
And the third florist we met didn't give us a quote at all-- just a list saying that each arrangement would cost anywhere from $25-500, depending on the flowers he would use, but he had no idea what flowers he wanted to use.
IRIS was, obviously, heads above the rest in our opinion.
Our original venue ended up falling through (not big enough), so when we found a new venue, Nicole came out to survey the area with us (since she was unfamiliar with it) and actually took things off the quote she had originally sent, saying that we didn't need anything additional, other than our bouquets and boutonnieres. The venue's landscaping would do the rest. The fact that she willingly cut things-- and suggested it herself-- totally won me over.
Nicole was easy to communicate with, got back to us right away with any questions we had, and took the time to listen to what we wanted.
Her arrangements were absolutely beautiful. Our wedding colors were blue and green, and we really wanted to find flowers that were naturally blue (not easy to do), and she succeeded brilliantly. It was a shame to put the flowers down.
We were incredibly satisfied with IRIS and would 100% recommend them for a wedding event!

ted, but we were coming in from out of town, and wanted to keep costs reasonable since we weren't able to bring flowers home with us.
She had some great ideas for us and ultimately, we did a lot of candles and callas, along with orchids placed in vases.
I ordered a charm with a photo of my dad on it for my bouquet and had it shipped to Nicole to place on the bouquet for me. She made sure to let me know when it arrived and sent me a picture of it.
I cannot recommend IRIS enough! Our wedding was an intimate group of 37, but I have a feeling she would also knock it out of the park with a larger event too.
For us, we couldn't have been happier. Thank you Nicole and the IRIS team for everything!

nniere, and two bridesmaids bouquets). My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous with striking deep purple cala lilies, tiny orchids, green berries and other unique blooms. When we left New Orleans to travel home to NJ, I didn't want to leave my flowers behind, so I threw them in a bag and carried them home. Once home, I stuck them in a vase and continued to enjoy their beauty. Believe it or not, that bouquet is still just as beautiful, flowers vibrant, as I write this review...TWO WEEKS LATER! I'm not sure what her secret is, but Nicole has magic in her blooms. I couldn't be happier that I chose IRIS floral for my event, and I would highly recommend them to other brides. Thanks Nicole!

ally flower people, they didn't bat an eye and started suggesting things like succulents and ivy, and when my groom told them he wanted to incorporate a D20 dice (a role playing dice) into the boutonnieres they said no problem.
A few months before the wedding we had a death in the family and we needed to send flowers, so we decided to use Iris. She made the most tasteful arrangement of all white blooms I've ever seen and sent us pictures before they delivered it, since we live in Los Angeles. They even handled finding out where it should be delivered. Based on that event I was looking forward to the wedding flowers.
When I got my bouquet on the day of the wedding I was floored. It matched my colors perfectly, used just the right types of flowers and even had some willow stems that draped up and around all the blooms. It looked like a piece of art. The boutonnieres were masculine and the perfect size, the bride's maids gushed about their bouquets and all 3 moms loved their pieces since they were similar to each other but different as well. Iris truly listens to their clients needs and choosing them is a sure bet.
