"I began reaching out to florists as soon as I set the date and became somewhat distraught....it seemed like no one understood my vision. I had spoken with several florists (and expanded my search area) when I finally found Flourish. Shannon was bubbly, passionate & said she could bring my vision to life! She sent me a mood board with colors, flower selections, ribbon colors, etc. it was in this moment I knew she was my florist! She just got it. Over the next several months we stayed in close contact and every time I changed my mind or asked to add new items I was met with an “of course” or “we’d love to”!
Even a few weeks before my wedding I was adding more succulents and the team at Flourish was kind enough to say yes! When we finally met in person it was like hanging out with an old friend (who’s crazy talented!) Fast forward to my wedding day - I had wanted to include peonies in my bouquet, but they’re not in season in August. When Shannon walked in holding my bouquet and I saw peoonies I felt tears well up inside. She said she found some all the way in Alaska....and surprised me! Talk about florist of the year!
I decided to do a moon arch with asymmetrical flowers as the ceremony backdrop...holy moly was it even more beautiful than I could’ve imagined. As I sat down at my table and looked at how gorgeous Flourish made everything look I was overjoyed. The majority of my guests even commented on how lovely all my florals were!
If you are looking for a florist who is passionate, lovely to work with and can style flowers like it’s nobody's business hire Flourish" - Shannon K.
"Our wedding day turned out even more beautiful than I could have hoped for, in large part because of Shannon and the amazing florals she created for us. She listened very closely to me throughout the process and understood what I was looking for, and made a ton of suggestions that I ended up loving. She even was able to create arrangements to fit the arch my dad hand-made for the ceremony, and sketch out and execute a last minute design for climbing vines up a wall at the reception! I loved the little extra unexpected touches like jasmine in my bouquet, which made it smell wonderful. The wedding was local, and delivery and pickup was as easy as could be. All in all, we would definitely recommend Flourish to any bride or groom! Thanks Shannon!" -Alexandra O.

"Shannon was an absolute DREAM to work with at Flourish! She was extremely professional, sweet, and most importantly, so incredibly creative with her floral designs. I shopped around a bit when looking for a wedding florist, and most of the designs I saw looked very generic and similar to each other. The flowers at my wedding were far and away more beautiful than anything that I could have imagined and I received compliments all night from the wedding guests and other vendors at the event. She called me back promptly and provided an initial consultation, sent me the proposal and invoice, and then we met face to face at her office so that she could show me different ideas. She was able to work within our budget and put us at ease. I even asked for a last minute change to add a floral & green arch at the wedding ceremony which she was able to pull off without a hitch. My dream wedding was turned into a reality all because of Shannon. Thank you!!" -Katie A.
"Shannon is a true floral and business genius. She is a bride's dream when it comes to working with her. She is trustworthy and professional and executed exactly the style we were looking for for our wedding but made it even better! We were so impressed how she took our ideas and transformed them into a reality. We adore her - couldn't be any happier!" -Kelsey E.

"We had a rustic outdoor wedding in the Sierra Mountains, and because it was set in the forest, we wanted to make sure that the floral arrangements celebrated and amplified the natural beauty of our surroundings without looking out of place. Shannon came up with wonderful ideas for how to incorporate elements from the forest into arrangements, including using beautiful lichen-covered branches from our property on the dining tables. Shannon was such a careful listener and totally 'got' what I wanted for my bouquet, flower crown, boutonnieres and other wearable florals too. Our guests kept commenting on how lovely the flowers were, and my husband says that my bouquet was the most beautiful one he's ever seen. I'd have to agree!" -Courtney M.
