Wedding Day Flowers
Elegant Florals to RememberReviewed on 12/07/2012 Brette P
The Ocean Flowers team created the vision (and more) that I wanted for my wedding day and night. The bouquets and boutineers were the first indication that the florals and decor were going to be beautiful. The simple chuppah lit up outside set the tone for a very magical night. Inside, the room looked sleek, fresh and purely elegant. It was exactly what I was going for with the explosions of calla lilies on every table surrounded by hydragenas and candles galore. Guerdy is one-of-a-kind and she's got a great design perspective. She will give her own opinion and make your voice be heard through images. I'm proud to say Ocean Flowers was part of my dream wedding!

Ocean Flowers' designer, Tom, is incredibly talented. He put together our centerpiece design and several bouquets at my floral sampling that were AMAZING! They knew exactly how many arrangements we would need, as well as where to place them. We had amazing flowers EVERYWHERE: gazebo, cocktail hour space, reception space, on the cake, even decorating our buffet tables! Our wedding looks like it belongs on Style Me Pretty, and Ocean Flowers is a HUGE part of why!
AMAZING!Reviewed on 1/26/2012 Christina P
Guerdy works with you to fit your budget, and at the same time still makes the place look ridiculously good. She was on the same page with me from day one as I described what I was looking for, she was able to pull up pictures from her database that was exactly what I wanted. We had our floral review at The Ritz so we could really see what it would look like in the room. Even though I felt like I had to cut back on flowers, you could not tell at all. Her centerpieces were amazing as were the alter pieces. She's so amazing. I highly recommend her.

We used Ocean Flowers for our ceremony and reception. The decor was absolutely amazing! Guerdy is amazing, and made our day very special. They are a little on the higher end, but worth every penny. You will not be disappointed!
BeautifulReviewed on 5/28/2011 karina j
I forgot the name of the gentleman that was at my sample but he was great! He was totally open & receptive to my ideas and everything couldn't have been more beautiful on the day of. Some of the colors were not exactly as I envisioned but I can't dictate nature so I wasn't too worried about it. The end product was amazing, the centerpieces even more grand than the sample, my bouquet was exactly what I dreamed of, and they even surprised me with some extra arrangements on the place card table. I actually think these unexpected flowers on the place card table were the most beautiful of the entire event. Thank you Guerdy & everyone at Ocean Flowers!!!
Amazing, took my BREATH away...Reviewed on 5/09/2011 Emeli A
The first time I looked at my reception, it really took my breath away not just me all of my guest could agree. It was absolutely amazing, I couldn't begin to tell you the beauty, elegance and detail in every single arrangement. I couldn't be more grateful to Guerdy and her staff for being so helpful and for putting so much time & effort into my wedding. I was referred to Guerdy and everyone always said wonderful things about her, I knew that she would do a fantastic job from prior work I'd seen but nothing compares to the day of my wedding. Everything was beyond my expectations. Truly Gorgeous, it was my fairytale wedding....
Ocean Flowers is AWESOME!Reviewed on 4/23/2011 Lee K
From the first phone call with Guerdy I knew that Ocean Flowers was the perfect match for my daughter's wedding. She asked questions and really listened to create a vision that was unique and beautiful for our outdoor venue. She understood our desire for understated elegance where the flowers were a component of the overall experience and she didn't try to up-sell. The centerpieces and bouquets were absolutely gorgeous and we received so many compliments from our guests. Guerdy and Tom were a pleasure to work with - enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, and professional. I highly recommend Ocean Flowers, they will create a unique vision for any style of wedding.
Thank you thank you!Reviewed on 4/22/2011 Estee G
Guerdy is absolutely the nicest, sweetest, most hard working person around. She treated my wedding like it was hers and everythign that mattered to me mattered to her. The flowers were absolutely spectacular and she has an incredible ability to grasp your vision and make it a reality, she never tries to impose her ideas on you rather she takes your ideas and makes them come to life. On top of everything she is honest nad she cares about your budget and will do whatever she can to help you stick to it. Unlike other vendors she enver once offered us something she couldnt deliver in our price range. Thank you so much for making my wedding becoem everythign i dreamed of!
So Gorgeous!!Reviewed on 3/22/2011 Laurie B
The team at Ocean Flowers is very responsive, very professional and extrememly talented and creative. I was planning my Miami wedding from NYC, so I had to handle all of my planning via email and telephone. The owner of Ocean Florist sinply asked me a few questions such as: my colors, any themes, bridal party, etc... I explained the flowers I would like to use and I pointed out an example from her website that was my taste... and she created the most perfect, gorgeous center pieces I have ever seen. I got so many compliments on them from all of my guests. They really stood out and were so unique and memorable. They took my breath away.... I was so extremely beyond pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Ocean Flowers.
Absolutely Breathtaking! A dream come true!Reviewed on 2/16/2011 Erin T
I worked with Guerdy Abraira from day one on everything from the flowers to every detail of planning our wedding. As a very busy traveling bride with limited time to spend on wedding planning, Guerdy worked tirelessly to turn our vision into a wedding day that exceeded our expectations. She helped us to create a truly unique and one of kind experience. Our guests are still talking about our day as the best wedding and party they've ever attended. Guerdy is very detailed and has a very special way of creating a unique experience based on getting to know the bride and groom. When we were stuck on what decisions to make, she provide options expeditiously. Our wedding weekend went off without a single glitch. Everyone focused on having a great time, including the Bride and Groom. We were able to do this because Guerdy and her team had it covered. Pictures speak a thousand words but Guerdy is 100% first class on any budget. She is very professional, sophisticated and well networked in the South Florida community. The flowers were breathtaking. I most admired and appreciated how she kept things on track when I wasn't necessarily available to be involved on every detail due to destination and work schedule. She provided options without being intrusive and ultimately through working together, we came up with some amazing ideas. If anyone, no matter where they live, asks me for a recommendation for flowers and a wedding planner, I recommend Guerdy Abraira and Ocean Flowers. I have at least two other friends that have worked with her and they share the same sentiments.
Ocean Flowers - Divine Designs by GuerdyReviewed on 2/12/2011 Lissette F
Guerdy form Ocean Flowers is AMAZING! Her work is beyond beautiful and she pays attention to every detail. I had a destination wedding at The National Hotel in South Beach Florida. As a long distance bride, I started working with Guerdy, over the phone and via email, about 8 months before the wedding. She was extremely easy to work with and stayed within my budget. I was able to convey my vision of the floral décor, which she made a reality. I finally met Guerdy several months before the wedding. Not only was I impressed with her work ethic but also with her beauty. She is truly a beautiful person both inside and out. During our meeting I viewed my floral sample, which blew me away. It was larger and more beautiful than the picture I initially sent her. I listened to all of her suggestions because her experience as a wedding planner is unmatched. Having done many weddings at my venue, she knew exactly what to do in the space provided. Guerdy simply wants to give you the most amazing wedding possible. Our wedding was beautiful - it was so romantic and the atmosphere was perfect. It is clear that Guerdy takes pride in her work and enjoys making every event beautiful. We received, and continue to receive, raving compliments about her floral designs. I would recommend every bride use Guerdy. Her floral designs are not just flower arrangements, they are pieces of art. Thank you, Guerdy, for making my wedding day the best day of my life!
Guerdy is the best!Reviewed on 11/28/2010 L K
From the moment I was in communication with Guerdy at Ocean Flowers, I knew that she would be great for my wedding. Guerdy has such an enthusiasm for her work, and gives personalized attention to each of her customers. During our initial call, we spoke at length about the floral needs of my wedding. Guerdy gave careful attention to detail and was able to suggest ideas to realize the look that I wanted while staying within my budget. Guerdy then subsequently emailed me a detailed quote for everything we had discussed and provided us with fair and reasonable pricing. During our food tasting at our venue, Guerdy and Tom arranged a centerpiece sample for a table so that we would be comfortable with the arrangements, colors, and how it fit into the overall look of the reception. This was extremely helpful as we were able to see how the centerpiece would look in our venue and with our décor Needless to say, the sample was beautiful and worked perfectly. Before the wedding we did have some minor changes to our overall floral requirements (e.g., aisle décor, etc.) and Guerdy was helpful and creative in taking the time to help me design the look I needed, sending me pictures and making suggestions to ensure that she created the image that I wanted. Most importantly, on the day of the wedding Tom made sure that all of the arrangements were set-up and/or delivered without a hitch. The flowers were fresh and beautifully arranged, from the bridal bouquet to the aisle décor to the centerpieces to the boutonnieres. The colors were as planned and everything was just gorgeous! Guerdy and Tom were fantastic in all respects. Thank you both for helping make our wedding beautiful!
Beautiful, custom designed bouquets & arrangemReviewed on 11/27/2010 Julie G
I used Ocean Flowers for my beach wedding and was incredibly happy. Guerdy (the Owner) worked with me to get the best design, colors and arrangements for my budget, despite my numerous changes. She was the most inexpensive in the area and her work is amazing! She could charge much more for the quality of work she does. She custom built a chaaupa (I hope I spelled that correctly) on the beach, draped with sheer fabric and floral accents. We couldn't have been happier. It made a beautiful backdrop for our photos. I just wish I was able to take home all my arrangements because they were so wonderful and smelled great. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in the Miami area!
My flowers were GORGEOUS!!!!Reviewed on 11/17/2010 Sylvia K
I cannot say enough just how happily suprised I was when I walked into my reception... my flowers were glamorous, grand and just simply GLORIOUS! Though I did a trial, the actual result was beyond my imagination. In addition, Guerdy is just the most lovely and attentive person, exactly who you want taking care of your wedding. Several of my guests (many who go to weddings quite often) commented on my beautiful flowers. Guerdy is amazing - THANKS OCEAN FLOWERS!
I CRIED TEARS OF SATISFACTIONReviewed on 10/13/2010 PAULA R
I cried when I walked down my aisle! Of course I was emotional about marrying the love of my life, but the ceremony ambiance was like a dream. I could not believe how well Guerdy Rejouis-Abraira and her floral designer Tom Valdivieso executed above my own expectations. When a bride pictures her wedding, most dream about every detail, I must say that the details are still one of the major pictures that remain in my mind two weeks after the event. My guests have called and emailed requesting business cards for not only the floral and design but for her event planning services as well. I've never been to a wedding where guest walk around and take pics of decor! The team was able to commit to my theme, a culture mix (Carribean and Indian)and make me a "happily bragging" bride. Thank you again.
Ocean flowers = fairy godmother of wedding decor!!Reviewed on 9/18/2010 Jessica C
My 3 requirements to a vendor getting a A++++++ are (in order of importance): 1. Customer Service 2. Great Value 3. Quality of product Ocean flowers excelled in all 3 areas. First of all, Guerdy's personality won me over from day one. She was personable, knowledgeable and friendly. within the first few minutes of our meeting, she understood my vision, and literally ran with it and made it that much better. She was responsive to emails even with her busy schedule. Her priority was always to make me happy. Secondly, Guerdy worked with me to create a design that would fit my budget yet that I was still happy with; customizing every detail as to maximize on getting me the best bang for my buck! And honestly, the day of my wedding I was blown away by the quality of my florals and decor. Guerdy transformed my bare hotel ceremony room into a beautiful, romantic ceremony space, with a chuppah and crystal garland; She executed everything flawlessly. My bouquet was better than I imagined it would be and my reception room: Literally a dream come true. I cried when I saw it! I would recommend Ocean flowers to anyone looking for a dazzling experience when it comes to floral and decor!
Simply DivineReviewed on 8/01/2010 Jen Q
Guerdy and her team at Ocean Flowers were simply amazing. They produced stunning centerpieces, bouquets and accents that were within our budget, matched our vision and set the tone for a beautiful event and a very lively reception. The team at Ocean Flowers is talented, creative, attentive and cost conscious. There were no hidden fees and we felt we received spectacular value for our money. We highly recommend them.
Best wedding planner and florist on the planet!!Reviewed on 7/27/2010 Minal D
In my late 30s, I got my dream wedding and it was truly thanks to Guerdy. I am extremely detailed and particular and Guerdy was able to match me at every turn. Mine was the first Indian wedding she ever planned and she did it all with excitement, elegance, and courage! So many aspects of our wedding were new to her but you'd never know it. Our wedding weekend was spectacular from start to finish and the flowers were absolutely gorgeous! That weekend was truly the best in my life and it never would have happened quite the way it did without Guerdy. Considering all she does and the sheer fact that she is a perfectionist, she is a true BARGAIN! Hire her - you cannot go wrong!
A-MA-Zing!!Reviewed on 7/15/2010 Michelle B
I used Ocean Florist for my wedding. It was so beautiful! Guerdy was so easy to work with and extremely professional. We had a very intimate wedding, which cause a lot of issues with other vendors, but not Guerdy. She called when she said she was going to call; her designer showed up when he said he was going to show up. They even did a mock up of the flowers prior to the wedding me make sure we got exactly what we wanted! It was so beautiful and romantic. We got so much more than what we expected. I would HIGHLY recommend Ocean Florist to all South Florida Brides!!
Big Impact on a Small BudgetReviewed on 6/28/2010 Sarah Dina M
My personality and budget called for pared down arrangements to fill a large space, and Ocean Flowers worked with me every step of the way. My guests loved my reception centerpieces which looked top-tier with hydrangeas and orchids to complement my gold and ivory theme. Great experience!
Awesome!!!Reviewed on 5/19/2010 Jaime R
I am so glad I found Ocean Flowers for my wedding. Picking a florist was one of the hardest vendors for me to chose - We met with 9 different florists before deciding to book with Guerdy. From the begining, she seemed to really understand our vision and had great ideas, and she gave us a great quote for what we were looking for! She was easy to communicate with and she worked really hard with our trial to get it just right! The end result was executed TO PERFECTION! The value we got for what we paid was excellent. The flowers were fresh and quality and she really cared about making sure everything looked awesome. Guerdy takes pride in her events and it shows! I would not hesitate to recommend this florist to anyone. If I could go back again, I would hire her in a second!
Clean EleganceReviewed on 5/18/2010 Debbie R
Those are the exact words I told Guerdy. She took those two words and transformed it to beautiful towering centerpieces dripping with crystals, floating candles and orchids, and soft pink roses. Between a gorgeous gazebo ceremony, a cocktail reception with a blossoming wishing tree, and a reception to die for... it is no wonder that my guests are still talking about my wedding. It was pure magic and I am still blown away. Guerdy and her team are beyond talented, are extremely professional, and settle for nothing less than perfection. Ocean florist receives our highest recommendation!
mother of the brideReviewed on 5/18/2010 helen h
As a mother of the bride who knew little about flowers, decorating and design, yet had to deliver "the dream wedding," I took a leap of faith and put all my trust in Guerdy at Ocean Flowers. Guerdy did not let me down. She more than exceeded all my expectations. She uniquely created and designed everything to fit the theme my daughter was envisioning. My daughter and I never imagined that this wedding could have been so incredibly beautiful. And that was all due to Guerdy. There was no detail that she did not have under control. The flowers and all of the decorations were not only 100% perfect, but I felt that her prices were reasonable as well. On top of being incredibly talented and creative, Guerdy was consistently high energy, upbeat, positive, fun, pleasant to work with, and always available. She gets the highest of marks and praise from our family!
Absolutely FabulousReviewed on 5/17/2010 Victoria A
My husband and I were already married but we never had a wedding or reception. We planned after a year of marriage that we would have a wedding or at least a nice reception to celebrate with our close friends and family. Needless to say 4.5 years passed and life happened, we had children and moved. Two years ago we moved to South Florida and we both decided that this was the time to do it! Years back we took a vacation to Fisher Island and from that point we fell in love with that venue. I met Guerdy and I loved her personality! She has so much energy and she is so knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. I put my full trust in her service and my day was perfect!!! On the actual day of I did not have to worry about anything ,everything ran amazingly smooth. My vow renewal ended with everyone amazed at how beautiful everything was. My husband and I are so grateful to her and her staff for making so many wonderful memories that we will be able to share with our family for a lifetime!
Best Quality, Service and ValueReviewed on 5/17/2010 Xenia A
I had visited about 4 other florists and thought no one would understand my vision and match my budget. Another knottie (who was booked at my same venue) was using Ocean Flowers and she recommended them. I decided to call them. As soon as I got off the phone with Guerdy, the owner, I knew Ocean Flowers would execute my vision. The estimate she quoted was in my price range, so I decided to book with them. Guerdy also provided samples of the centerpieces we had discussed, which gave me a piece of mind. There were no hidden costs/fees. The day of my wedding I was completely blown away with the centerpieces and decor. Everything was so beautiful. My guests complemented every detail. I am so happy I booked Ocean Flowers; I don't think any other company would have made such beautiful creations in my budget. The staff is professional and responsible.
