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!


My favorite vendor

What can I say? Nicole was my favorite vendor to work with. Her work was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. She was professional to work with, but it was also like working with a friend. I had no idea what I was doing or even what we wanted, but we were coming in from out... Read More 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!

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.

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.

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!

I wish I could give Iris 10 stars! I LOVED my flowers so so much! Nicole is amazing to work with, she made everything so easy!

Nicole is AMAZING. She's so easy to work with and I felt so at ease upon our first meeting.

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. She works with very fresh flowers; so fresh that one of the bridesmaid bouquets that I have was still fresh and beautiful when I returned home from my honeymoon a week later. 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.

Iris was my floral vendor for my October 8th, 2016 wedding at the Degas House. It was a destination wedding in New Orleans and Nicole was so helpful and wonderful throughout the process. She responded to emails quickly and was nice enough to add center pieces at the last minute!... Read More Her prices were also very reasonable. When my flowers were delivered the afternoon of my wedding, I told Nicole that my flowers were the only thing had turned out 100% perfect on my wedding day so far!

Nicole is seriously an artist! I knew that I didn't want traditional wedding flowers, and I wanted something completely customized to my style for our wedding. I contacted Nicole and we talked through email since I live out of town and she asked me to send her some examples of... Read More what I had in mind. When we met in person for the first time discuss options, I was so impressed with her ideas because she seemed to understand exactly what I wanted. Throughout the planning process, I changed things around and each time she was more than accommodating and completely worked with our budget. I knew I would like the flowers, but when I saw them on the day of our wedding I was blown away with what Nicole came up with. My bouquet was a work of art and unlike anything I had ever seen. I received more compliments on the flowers than I ever expected. Besides the bouquet, the rest of the venue was perfect too and it was everything I hoped for. IRIS not only makes the floral arrangements but can also provide other decor such as lanterns, candles, and altar backdrops. The candles and lanterns used for our ceremony were beautiful and I loved the table decorations. I am so, so, so happy that I found IRIS for our wedding.
