About the owner/head designer:
Samantha Bates AIFD
Weddings are my favorite! From the initial consultation to the last dance, I just LOVE taking all the ideas and making them into a reality. I am a licensed florist of Louisiana, Vice President of the Louisiana State Florist Association, and a member of the Tangipahoa Professional Women's Organization. I have been awarded 1st place in Floral Design, two 1st place for Peoples Choice in Floral Design, awarded FTD Master Florist and come August 2015 I will be representing the great state of Louisiana in the Arkansas Mid America floral competition. In June of 2015, I tested for membership into the American Institute of Floral Designers where I earned the prestigious Certified Floral Designer accreditation and will officially be inducted into AIFD July 2016 in Anaheim CA as a fully accredited member.

Where do I start? When I say that sam truly went above and beyond is an understatement. Throughout the entire process, sam was so easy to work with and was so set on making my bouquet perfect. While going through the initial process, she listed to everything that I wanted and more. I purchased fake flowers to go on the cake and sam went and color matched the ones that went in my bouquet. Not only that, but a month before the wedding, the company making my wedding cake, who was originally supposed to put the flowers on the cake, said she would rather the florist put the flowers on the cake. While I was flustered and stressed out, Sam stepped up and said she would be happy to put the flowers on my cake. She was so helpful and definitely put my mind at ease. The flowers made the cake look PHENOMENAL! Sam even sent me a picture of the cake after she was finished. Not to mention, Sam took my timeline into consideration and brought me my bouquet early to ensure I had my flowers for my pictures. When I say I did not have to worry about anything, I truly mean it. It is so hard to find someone who takes pride in their work, focuses on every detail, no matter how small, and strives to make everything perfect, but Sam did just that. I found my new favorite florist. I cannot say enough positive things about her, her service, her company and the quality of the flowers and the decorations on the cake. She truly loves her line of work and wants her customers to be happy! Thank you again, Sam!Sent on 11/11/2019

Especially For You Floral Review from a more than pleased bride
Sam at Especially For You Floral is an amazing florist. She made my experience more than I could have imagined. I told her my color scheme and she made the arrangements more than I could dream of. When she showed me my bouquet all I did was cry tears of joy. It was absolutely amazing. It was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! If you are getting married or have any floral needs call Sam she’s more than the best!Sent on 11/22/2018
