Michelle at Snowberry Studio was absolutely amazing. She was incredibly responsive from day one. I was looking all around for florists for my wedding day, and once I met Michelle I knew she was who I wanted to help make my wedding day beautiful. I live in San Francisco and my wedding was in Escondido, which meant we communicated a ton through email. Michelle always responded and helped me with all of my questions. She executed the day exactly how I imagined and anything I didn't know I had her take the lead with her own vision. I highly recommend Snowberry Studio, she will make sure you are taken care of and instill full confidence that your special day will be perfect. Thank you Michelle from Blake and I!! We hope one day we can work together again!
Michelle was a God send! I truly appreciated how patient she was with me in the process of picking my flowers. As expected, I was overwhelmed at times but Michelle stayed consistent, well manned and reliable. Her ideas to make my vision come to life and meet our budget really stood out to me. On my wedding day, when I saw the final product I was blown away! I couldn't have been more happy. I think as a bride, I worried about someone understanding my vision and making it come to life but Michelle did and I really couldn't say enough good things about her. Very talented and professional!
SOOOO AMAZING is an understatement. Michelle went above and beyond! The flowers turned out better than I imagined, our Chuppah was perfect, it was done so elegantly and natural, the bouquets are still sitting perfectly on my table and it's been over a week. When my wedding venue left her without Sheppard's hooks to hang the flowers on she improvised and made the isle look adorable. She meet with me and my mom several times and kept up with my ever changing mind. Thank you Michelle for everything! You helped make our day perfect!!!
I cannot say enough good things about Michelle from Snowberry Studio!!! I chose her after looking at the photos on her website and being impressed with how quickly she responded to my initial inquiry. I met with her over coffee and tried to explain the look I was going for. She had a nifty app on her phone that let me look at flowers by color and see if they were in season. I wanted a vintage look with blush flowers and gray-green succulents but I wasn't exactly sure it would work. I was worried that I didn't get across what I was envisioning and because I live out of state I couldn't meet with Michelle again before the wedding. I must have sent her dozens of emails with questions and ideas and she always responded right away. The day of the wedding I was really stressed that things weren't going to look how I wanted them to, but when I saw the ceremony and reception site I was blown away. It was like Michelle got into my head, saw my vision, and then improved it tenfold. To say it far exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. We got married on a grassy lawn at the Safari Park by the cheetahs, but Michelle turned it into a romantic, vintage, magical park. Between her kindness, professionalism, patience, and absolutely stunning work, I would absolutely recommend her for any event. I'm so happy we chose her!
Michelle went above and beyond for my wedding! All of the flowers were even better than I could have imagined. I never doubted that I was in good hands. From the moment we met I could see how talented, honest, hard working, and efficient she was. She truly cared about my event... A rare quality that I have found lacking in many other vendors. When I was shopping around for a florist I noticed many of them had short attention spans and seemed to stop listening to the details I was sharing with them. I could tell Michelle was different. She was perfect at reading what I envisioned and totally nailed it on my wedding day. She was also quick with responses every step of the way even when I asked her for a million adjustments. The amount of times I changed my mind would have driven anyone nuts, not Michelle. She never made me feel bad about changing my mind and was always patient and kind. Michelle is a couple's dream come true!!! Book her, you can't go wrong!
Michelle was very helpful at first - and seemed to have a good idea of what we wanted in terms of floral design for our wedding in 9 months. However, once we got a proposal we liked, she then asked us to make a deposit before she had written up a contract, which was a big red flag. I got an email from her about this on a Wednesday morning, but didn't get to open it until Thursday. When I opened my email on Thursday, I was going to reply to let her know that we'd still love to use her but that we wouldn't be comfortable paying through a paypal link without a contract - only to see an email from her that she'd booked with another couple! Less than 24 hours after letting her know that we wanted to book her and asking how to pay her, she'd booked with someone else. That seemed terribly unprofessional, especially since we spent the last three weeks NOT looking for a florist, believing Michelle was going to do it, only to have her book with someone else immediately after I told her I wanted to book her.
My husband and I got Married in March at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. She was the ONLY florist that we interviewed that actually met us at the resort. We wanted her to meet us there so we could show her what our venue looked like and what we had in mind for our special day. On our first meeting we loved her and her ideas. On the day of, she showed up early with the flowers and they were perfect! She even helped our wedding planner move the flowers from the ceremony to the reception. I had so many compliments on my flowers that day and even now when i show people our wedding pictures. Her flowers were amazing and the best decision we made for our wedding!
I booked snowberry about 6 months in advance to design a gazebo flower and ivy arch and a matching bridal bouquet. Quick contact via email and phone, consistent pricing and quotes when compared to listings and email communications. She had other works in a gallery that gave me the impression she would be creative with the arch and she really was! It was beautiful. She was reliable, arriving on time and I heard her and her husband were both thoughtful and personable at the venue while setting up. I had flowers I didn't like inside my bridal bouquet that hadn't been on the list we had set up, so I cut and took them out only to see they were also inside the arch when I was in the ceremony, which I hadn't anticipated. BUT ladies/gents, I am picky and I kind of had an exact idea of what I wanted. I think anyone booking a full wedding package would have really appreciated her style and arrangements and should give her a go if they were planning with less precision to detail, or knew they mostly wanted one or two types of flowers incorporated. While booking, keep in mind the weather.. Part of my bouquet grew very wilted during my July day wedding. Lambs leaf? A green stock. We pulled these out between the wedding and reception for the next round of photos. Still gorgeous, even with a little improvisation.
Michelle was excellent to work with and because of her creativity, she transformed my wedding to an elegant one. I was truly impressed with ALL the flowers and the quality of the displays. Thank you, Michelle for making this a unforgettable event.
Michelle from Snowberry is a bride's come true especially when a bride has this broad random idea with no clear understanding of execution and a wary use of pinterest. Michelle had the same enthusiasm as I did about my idea and was very responsive in discussing different aspects of the floral arrangements and she was respectful of my budget. The archway, table pieces, bouquets and boutonnieres exactly fit my personality and what I envisioned for the big day. I kind of stumbled on Snowberry studios on my search for florists, and it has been one of my luckiest finds!
Michelle Sousa of Snowberry Studio was an absolute pleasure to work with. She completely understood what I was looking for in the floral arrangements for my wedding, and delivered unique, beautiful and unforgettable designs. I chose to use Snowberry Studio for my floral arrangements because of Michelle's willingness to create unique designs that fit within my budget. From our first contact and through the day of my wedding, Michelle was on top of things, checking in with me frequently and offering suggestions when needed. While setting up at my venue, she went above and beyond by helping me set up my table numbers and decorating my card box with extra flowers and greenery. I was absolutely blown away by how gorgeous all of the arrangements were. I can't recommend Snowberry Studio enough for your wedding, as I am over the moon about the incredible job they did for me!
Cannot say enough good things about Michelle and Snowberry Studio! She took my vision and ran with it and executed everything perfectly! I was so pleased with how everything turned out. Michelle was quick to respond to all of my questions and changes and was so willing to do whatever would make me happy. Her advice and input was very much appreciated throughout the planning process. I love her attention to detail and had so many compliments from our guests about how amazing the centerpieces were. So incredibly happy with the floral decor and can't wait to see all the beautiful pictures of everything she created!!

Michelle is the BEST!!!!!!
Absolutely Recommend!!Reviewed on 12/07/2015
I have never written a review... ever... but Snowberry Studio truly deserves this one! I can't thank Michelle enough for making our wedding so BEAUTIFUL! Not only is her work amazing, but I was blown away by how honest, professional, responsive, and kind she is. It felt more like I was planning my wedding with a friend rather than a vendor. She is so open and enthusiastic and you can tell she loves what she does. Because of her, I had complete confidence while planning my big day. She truly cared about my fiance and I, our interests, our opinions, our budget, and our vision, and she far exceeded our expectations! I am so very glad that I found Snowberry Studio, and would recommend them 100%! They made our wedding beautiful and they made the planning fun and exciting... In my opinion, that's what every bride hopes for! THANK YOU SNOWBERRY STUDIO!!
Thank you Snowberry Studio!!Reviewed on 11/28/2015 Yui W
When I began to plan my wedding, I was overwhelmed by all of the vendors that you need to choose. Flowers was of course one of them. I sent many generic emails asking for quotes, and I was referred to Michelle, owner of Snowberry Studios, by someone who used to work with her. Michelle is extremely prompt and professional, and you can feel her warmth in her emails and texts (I'm big on feeling a connection!, even through writing). She was able to meet with me and we took a few hours to go through ideas and flowers. She was so helpful, and not pushy at all. She's respectful and understanding of budgets, and doesn't make you feel bad about adding in or removing items to get your perfect order and quote. I also really loved the fact that she is willing to work with whatever flower you want to use. I had my heart set on a stargazer lily bouquet, and I had a few florists flat out dismiss my idea or tell me it isn't doable so they refuse. Michelle was enthusiastic and my bridal bouquet turned out amazing. My bridesmaids all loved their bouquets, and the groomsmen and my husband thought it was the best thing ever that their boutonnieres were magnets instead of pins. I felt so lucky to have such a good connection with my florist. Thank you Michelle for the amazing job that you did, and for your sweet and wonderful energy!!

Extremely happy newlywedsReviewed on 9/03/2015 Diane M
We LOVED everything about our experience with Snowberry Studio! We met with Michelle and shared what we'd like for our wedding and she added some of her ideas and we just knew we were in good hands. Michelle is incredibly talented and managed to successfully create what we had envisioned our floral arrangements, centerpieces, bouquets, etc. to look like. Everything looked beautiful and flawless, especially for such a large wedding. We couldn’t go wrong with such friendly and talented staff and it was also very affordable for us. We are so happy we chose Snowberry Studio, and we will continue to do so for all of our future floral needs.
Great floristReviewed on 5/11/2015
My daughter's wedding was going very well recently. The flowers were one of the best part. Michelle, the owner of Snowberry Studio is an excellent florist. As the mom of bride,I am not an easy one to be pleased. She was able to deal with the difficulty and to create the absolutely gorgeous flower arrangement for the wedding. She delivered the flower from San Diego to Los Angeles on time. I believe the great creative,service and honesty will support her to have a thriving business. You will be happy as we are to select Snowberry Studio as your vendor.
