Wendy was incredible. I can't recommend her enough. She spent so much time with us listening to what we wanted, asking important questions, and looking at pictures to get a feel for the flowers we liked. She was great at telling us what flowers would be in seasons so we could figure out the most affordable way to get the look we wanted. She let us make changes along the way which was also incredibly helpful - I didn't feel like I was locked in and unable to adjust as our wedding adjusted. She came early on the wedding day, and made sure everything was set up and ready to go. I didn't even have time to stress about whether or not the flowers would get there (and we had an early morning wedding). My bouquet was stunning. The centerpieces were exactly what I imagined, and she made this beautiful arrangement to drape over the fireplace we were getting married in front of. She's an artist for sure, with a great eye and a talent for making others dreams come true. I felt like a lot of florists have their own style and only do that kind of style, but based on pics Wendy showed us she can do any style. I love that because I felt like I found someone who would do what I wanted and match my style rather than doing what she preferred. I would recommend Wendy to anyone. She also stayed to make sure she could say hi to me and to make sure I was happy with my flowers. I only wish I had more time in the moment to tell her how great she did. 100% recommend. You'll love her personality and her skill.
I have to give Wendy a Five Star Rating. Wendy and I interacted online and text messaging. I sent Wendy a few photos of what I wanted. The colors, the style, the height width and so forth. She captured EXACTLY what I had envisioned for my ceremony and reception. And, to top it off, she was the sweetest in person. Even my mom took notice saying Wendy was a very kind-hearted person. I'm beyond happy that I chose The Purple Iris Events. - Barb E Garcia
I never write reviews but felt like I was so reliant on reviews for planning my wedding that I had to write one. Wendy was INCREDIBLE to work with! I had my wedding on 11/12/16 and I reached out to Wendy in June. Planning a socal wedding from SF, I had to take a leap of faith, and I feel like I really lucked out with Wendy. In fact, she was the first vendor I signed a contract with (without even talking to any other florists!) because she made me feel so well taken care of before and during our first hour-long phone call, and offered such a great price for her amazing work. She asked me for my vision, and asked if I had a pinterest board of my ideas that she could look at. She even offered ideas on how to repurpose flowers to save on costs - things I never would have thought of. During the months leading up to the wedding, Wendy was generous enough to make a drive to Irvine to meet me at my venue during the only weekend I was in town, was responsive to my emails, and was also incredibly flexible as I had to make changes to the floral arrangements I wanted (adding a bridesmaid bouquet and a floral crown, etc). I admit I can be a type A type of person, but working with Wendy, I completely trusted her to do her thing and didn't think twice. When I finally got to see her floral arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, and flower crown on the day of, I was blown away. All my friends are now telling me they want flower crowns for their weddings! Everything complemented one another perfectly and made our venue really come to life, and was honestly better than anything I imagined. All of this, plus the fact that her prices are truly a steal compared to what I've heard friends pay. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Wendy, for helping me have the wedding of my dreams!! You are the best and I hope that I'll have the opportunity to work with you again. Anybody reading this - don't even think twice! Just talk to Wendy and book her for your special day :)
Working with Wendy of Purple Iris Events was one of the best experiences I had in planning my wedding. Wendy is very creative and helpful. For our wedding, I didn't know what I wanted in terms of flowers, or had a clear idea of what I wanted for arrangements. The only thing I did know was the colors. She had a vision of what she was going to do after meeting with me and seeing a photo of my dress. Wendy’s end product was absolutely beautiful. She used high-quality materials and paid attention to detail. We spent just over 1200; which was well below what other florists quoted for us. We had flowers in jars (I made my own) hanging from the seats down the aisle and 15 centerpieces for the tables. I also had three bridesmaids bouquets, one bridal bouquet, one flower girl kissing ball, and four boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. Everything was unique but seemed to all flow together. For those of us who value communication, there isn't a better match than Wendy. She responds prompt to emails and phone calls and is open and understanding to your needs. She’s very professional, but also friendly and considerate.
