    10000% Pleased

    Loved loved LOVED the wedding bouquet Lisa created for me. Originally our wedding was set for May 2020 and I was having a gorgeous bouquet of just sunflowers and baby's breath. Due to some wonderful circumstances we had to change our wedding to January 2020. Not only was Lisa able to accommodate our new date, she was able to create a bouquet for me I feel in love with. I didn't look for a new one as I was a bit sad I couldn't have sunflowers anymore. We only discussed some colors for it. The pictures I took are of the day AFTER the wedding and even then it looks gorgeous. It was so bright and beautiful..couldn't have asked for one better

    Find Your Vision with Designworks Florals

    We were referred to Designworks Florals by both our venue and our caterers, and boy were we glad we decided to listen to those referrals! Lisa, the owner of Designworks Florals, was quick to respond and set up an in-person discussion so that she could help bring our vision to life. We met Lisa at her home studio, and got straight to work figuring out what pieces we would need and what they should look like. As a bride and groom who walked into this meeting with a barely formed idea of what flowers we might want at our wedding, we walked away with a vision for the entire wedding in our heads and a contract signed with Designworks Florals.

    Up until the point of meeting with Lisa, we had only booked the venue, the food and I had purchased my dress and picked the colors of my bridesmaid dress - nothing had been chosen with a particular theme in the mind, and there was a very real chance that our wedding would have been an assortment of mismatched pieces that just didn’t fit together.. Her knowledge of our venue, attention to the details of my dress and the colors of my bridesmaids dresses along with my suggestion of succulents all came together like I had been working on a vision board for the wedding for the last year. She knew exactly what would work, and this was over 9 months before our wedding.

    Leading up to the wedding, Lisa checked in regularly and worked with me to amend our wedding vision and materials required as necessary. Every email had a cheerful tone and was ended with a smiley face. As most brides know, planning a wedding can be stressful, and any amount of positivity and support can go a long way. Email exchanges with Lisa always made my day.

    The day of our wedding, we were absolutely blown away by all of the florals and little details provided by Designworks Florals. Lisa went above and beyond the things that were detailed in our quote. There were so many extras that I was not expecting that just made every corner, every nook and cranny of our ceremony and reception sites feel like were a part of the larger vision of our wedding. From the largest arrangements to the smallest of boutonnieres everything was perfect. I would not have changed a single thing. I’m so thankful to have connected with Lisa and Designworks florals, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a stellar florist for their wedding or event.

    Incredible florals and great to work with!!

    Lisa, the owner of Designworks Florals created the florals for my wedding this past August 2018 and I would highly recommend!! I came in open to her ideas and she blew me away! She is very knowledgeable about different flowers and their benefits / drawbacks / and prices. With the information that I provided her on my color scheme / high level vision, environment (my wedding was on the beach with the ocean breeze), and my budget, she was able to come up with beautiful bouquets, accent pieces, and decorations throughout the night. In addition, she was able to reuse the flowers from my ceremony at the reception. I cannot say enough good things about Lisa and her work!!!

    Lisa recently did the florals for our daughter's wedding. We are wedding professionals ourselves, and sometimes that can mean our expectations are a bit high. Everything Lisa did was perfect. She took our ideas, our sample pictures and even added some specialty touches that were amazing. It was absolutely magical! It was probably the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen. The florals were stunning. It was gorgeous to every last detail. The ribbons framing the settee vignette made a lovely backdrop to the evening's photos. I can't wait to see pictures. Oh, and the cake and pie on the dresser surrounded by all the lush greenery and flowers looked like it was out of a magazine.

    While we have referred Lisa to many of our brides, we had not used her services personally prior to this occasion. I could not recommend anyone more highly. Lisa is a pure joy to work with. Reach out to her!

    Lisa is a sweetheart and has a great aesthetic. She helped us create the romantic,rustic, backyard, mountainy look we were going for. Since she works out of her home, the cost as very reasonable. Definitely recommend her

    Lisa was great! We came to her with literally no idea what kind of flowers we wanted. She discussed different options with us and worked to stay within our budget. She was even flexible in adding another bridesmaid bouquet at the last minute. The flowers were absolutely beautiful on the day of the wedding! Thank you Lisa!

    Lisa did the flowers for our wedding ceremony, reception, and cake decorations. We couldn't have been happier. She captured exactly what we wanted and made our reception so much brighter and colorful with the flowers and table decorations. She was easy to work with and really helped us out while planning the wedding since we live outside of California. She also helped a lot with making sure we stayed in budget. We definitely recommend Lisa!

    Lisa is a true professional with an impeccable eye for color and for finding just the right flowers for our wedding! Everything was perfect. She listened to me and my ideas and then offered several suggestions to meet and exceed our expectations. If we have another event that requires flowers we'll definitely be contacting her! Thank you!

    Lisa was great to work with. She initially found us on wedding.com but we checked her reviews here on weddingwire as well. At first we were a little nervous because her shop was at a residence, but her knowledge, professionalism, and sincerity put us at ease.

    We adjusted what we wanted a few times throughout the process (we were engaged over a year so it was bound to happen!), and Lisa was accommodating to every single one. She even saved the day at the last minute...I was in a rush and didn't realize I had only provided her with the venue address for delivery, forgetting that I would need the bridal party flowers at our hotel beforehand for pictures. She was able to bring extra help for someone to run the bridal party flowers over to us while she completed the setup at the venue.

    Thank you, Lisa, for providing us with such gorgeous flowers and amazing customer service!

    We heard about Lisa at Designworks Florals from our amazing wedding venue location, so of course I was interested in meeting with her. My fiance was deployed at the time, and I am not good with following directions in unfamiliar locations, so I was late for our meeting. I was impressed that Lisa was very welcoming and did not make me feel rushed through the appointment. She is extremely detailed oriented, and was able to know exactly what I wanted before I even knew! I had brought a lot of photographs to share, which I might add, most were from San Diego Style Weddings magazine. Lisa's work has been featured in their floral section and looks amazing. I knew upon meeting her that she would go above and beyond and do a fantastic job, so I did not even look elsewhere. She is a true artist and was able to put a spin on our vision so that it came to life even more dramatic and elegant than I had imagined. When she dropped off the bouquets for the girls and I, the day of, I was very giddy, and they took my breath away. My mom said the flowers were the most gorgeous and freshest she had ever seen. They looked lively even days after the wedding. My groom and I were also surprised and impressed with how sentimental our ceremony and reception area felt because of Lisa's touch. We were thrilled with her services, and wouldnt have had it any other way!

    Lisa is am absolute pleasure to work with. From the first moment I met with her I was confident she understood my vision. She was great at making reccomendations that worked with my budget but didn't take away from what I was going for. The final arrangements were gorgeous, I was even asked if she could make silk flower replicas! I will continue to go to Lisa for any future events and recommend you do the same.

    We connected with Lisa through our reception venue. The minute I spoke with her on the phone I knew I was going to like working with her. Upon our first meeting, my husband and I shared some general ideas, showed her some pics, and of course talked budget. Lisa was great at keeping us within budget while incorporating the key things we wanted. She is professional, personable, would always respond to our emails/calls, and does beautiful work. It's almost as if she got inside our brains and knew exactly what we were envisioning for our wedding and made it happen! My bouquet, centerpieces, and decor were all so beautiful. Thank you Lisa!

    If I could, I would give DesignWorks Floral higher markings across the board! Lisa and her team were wonderful. All of my guests were blown away.
    I first chose DesignWorks because of her quick response time, she was professional and guided me through the creative process down to the last detail. She brought my vision to life, and always had ideas to bump it up to the next level, while staying within my original budget.

    Lisa was amazing! She was friendly, patient, helpful, and so very very creative, and so affordable. I didn't have a large budget and I thought I wouldn't be able to really do anything, and not only was I under budget, but she created a floral wonderland so to speak, some of the most breathtaking, bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, centerpieces, the sweetheart table centerpiece was to die for (figuratively speaking of course!) It was a wonderful day, and her creative touch added that special something for everyone to enjoy. I still get compliments from my friends! I absolutely recommend Lisa for any bride or groom!
