Angel on Earth!
Dawn was such an angel when I needed very last minute help with flowers. Her designing was great and her willingness to step in and help was so appreciated! Would highly recommend her for any type of event!Sent on 01/13/2020

Simply amazing business
Although we ended up not booking with Dawn, I can not express enough how amazing she is. She is so detailed, kind, and actually cares about you as a client! Her proposal was fast, very thorough and detailed. Her prices were extremely reasonable. She sent me ideas, added details I didnt think about and was very quick with her responses. The only reason we didnt book was we had a family friend offer to do our flowers and couldn't pass up the savings financially.Sent on 01/30/2020
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you so much for this lovely review Monicka! I so wish we could have worked together, but completely understand your situation. Hard to pass up an opportunity like this. Hope to work with you in the future! CHEERS! xo ~Dawn

Dawn did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding and providing floral service. Her presence was very calming and put both my fiance and I at ease. We had the best time and everything was prefect, from the flowers, table set up, coordinating the wedding party, and making sure the reception went off without a hitch! ...and helping pick up. I can't imagine doing a wedding without a coordinator! Thank you!!Sent on 10/13/2019
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you SO much Dave! You and Chris were such an amazing couple and I'm so glad that I was able to help make your day extra special! xo ~D

Dawn and Gaslamp Floral made my flower dreams come true!
I am obsessed with flowers and so is my mom and other friends attending the wedding. I have grown and sold flowers and knew the style and color of what I wanted for my wedding but also encouraged creativity from Dawn at Gaslamp Floral. And wow did she deliver! The flowers were better than I could have imagined. Dawn was so awesome to work with and really took my vision and ran with it. People were amazed by them, I think they must have been the most unique flowers most guests had seen at a wedding. Thank you Dawn for making my flower dream come true for my wedding!Sent on 01/12/2020
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Your compliments have been so generous - I cannot thank you enough. Your enthusiasm for flowers and my work has been phenomenal. I am so honored & grateful to have worked on your wedding! You are so sweet and I hope there is a way that we can work together again in the near future :-) xo ~Dawn

Gorgeous Flowers and Personal Touch! Dawn is the BEST!
I worked with Dawn and her business, Gaslamp Floral, for my wedding. My theme was California Wildflowers and the reception is in a wine garden. I asked Dawn to make the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, as well as do the floral decor for the reception venue. The bridal bouquet was all I could ever hope for and more. Dawn used such unique blooms. It was gorgeous! She is very creative and talented. Dawn first met me at a coffee shop to discuss my ideas and to make sure she really understood what I was looking for. She also told me that every flower I purchased was mine so that she would find ways to use every extra cutting to help decorate the reception venue. She held to her word and everything at the reception venue looked like a dream. The different blooms on all the tables was perfect. You can't beat the quality, personal touch and price!!! I highly recommend working with Dawn and Gaslamp Floral.Sent on 07/02/2020

Dawn went above and beyond what we could have asked for with florals!! She takes the time to learn about what style you are looking for as well as will COMPLETELY work with your budget. She is so sweet and did such a fantastic job! We couldn't have been more pleased! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!Sent on 06/17/2019

Florals & Coordination in sync!
Dawn was fantastic to work with! She not only did our stunning wedding flowers, she also was our day of coordinator. As a bride, I did not want to worry about anything the day of and Dawn made that happen. Everything went smoothly, and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding day. As an out of town bride, Dawn was so responsive to emails and texts leading up to the wedding. Her florals were stunning and captured the perfect blend of my romantic vision and my now husbands more tropical vision. You will not go wrong hiring Dawn for your florals and/or coordination!Sent on 06/26/2019
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you for the glowing review Alex! You two were so much fun and I'm so happy that I was able to help! Being out of town can definitely be a challenge, I'm glad that I was able to bring your vision to life! xo ~D

Dawn made more than our wildest dreams come true! She went above and beyond what we expected and everyone that attended was in awe at the details, flowers and expertise she provided!!

Best florist ever!
As a wedding coordinator, I can confidently say that Dawn and the Gaslamp Floral team have gone above and beyond at every single event I have booked them for: weddings, bridal showers, celebrations of life, bridal shows, photoshoots, etc. Dawn is incredibly talented and brings a creative vision to life like no other florist I have worked with! Not only does she deliver arrangements that are even better than I could've ever expected, but she also takes the time to embellish small details around the venue with extra blooms- free of charge! She embellishes the guest book, welcome table, signs, photos, etc. Honestly, walking around the events is like a special hunt for places where Dawn has left her creative mark! She goes above-and-beyond for every single client. I fully trust Gaslamp Floral and wholeheartedly recommend her to every client (and even trust her to do my sister and my own wedding!) If you're reading this- you're in the right place! You will LOVE Dawn and working with Gaslamp Floral.Sent on 01/30/2020
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Kelsey, you are truly amazing! I love working with you and can't wait for more to come! I cannot get enough when it comes to making a client happy or tell me that they couldn't have imagined how lovely their florals would be in person. That is the reward! You are an inspiration to me and I can't wait for more exciting things to come for us!! xo ~D

Dawn is the best!
I feel like I have a pretty low key planning process. My focus went to photographer, good, and booze. About one month before the wedding I realized I needed flowers *face palm* my coordinator recommended Dawn and the rest of history. I told her my budget and my ideas. I didn’t need anything over the top. I just loved the idea of greens and baby breathes. Dawn came through and beyond. The morning of my wedding I was pretty relaxed, it hasn’t hit me yet I was about to marry the love of my life. But when Dawn walked in and I saw her beautiful arrangements... those were the things that set off the tears. Dawn showing up with what I had only envisioned in my head in real life made my wedding day more real. Highly recommend. She’s awesome!Sent on 12/06/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thanks so much Brenda! I know flowers weren't your first thought, but that's ok - we understand that everyone an order to their priorities. I'm just glad we connected and that we were able to give you something beautiful for your big day! xoxo ~D
Ellie Varela · Married on 11/10/2018
Simply the best in San Diego!!
Where do I start!? Dawn was incredible! From the very start - where we sat down and chatted like old friends and went over my vision, budget and dreams, to the very end - where I ugly cried to her and gushed over how beautiful everything turned out the day of our wedding. There were countless emails, photos, and Pinterest inspos back and forth that led up to everything turning out SIMPLY PERFECT! She was honest with me when I told her my budget (Who knew florals were so expensive?!) and we worked through everything as she helped me make the decisions that mattered most to us (i.e. which flowers would give us the same look for less cost).
I would recommend Dawn and her team in a heartbeat! I wish I could get married again just to use her services one more time! Book her! She's simply the best!!Sent on 12/20/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Lady - you are amazing! You two are such great people and I was so honored to do this for you, your families & friends. I am so happy that you "ugly cried" and loved everything. We really tried to go above and beyond for you guys and I'm glad it paid off :-)
Linda · Married on 09/28/2018
Great value and awesome floral design!
We hired Dawn for our wedding florals and she did an amazing job! The vision that I had for the florals (pink, white, dusty rose) came together beautifully. We worked mostly through emails (because I'm based in San Francisco), and it was amazing that I showed her a couple of pictures, and she was able to make it turn into reality. The bouquet of the flowers were larger than expected! The florals made the entire wedding reception area so elegant! Also, she was reasonably price and was able to work within our tight budget! She also has connections to other parts of the wedding industry. So if you need wedding planning services, or lights, etc, you can go through her. We got lighting and chair sashes through her without having to worry about anther vendor.Sent on 12/02/2018
What also makes Dawn and her floral services so awesome is that she took extra florals and decorated other areas of the wedding (welcome table, sweetheart table, reception table). She doesn't let florals go to waste!
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you SO much Linda! You were so sweet and your florals were a joy to work on and I'm always happy to decorate with any and all extra flowers that we have. I just hate to throw them away! I am so happy that we were able to make your day extra beautiful! Cheers! ~D

Even Better Than We Expected
We chose Gaslamp Floral to provide the flowers and greenery for our wedding day and were blown away with Dawn's amazing work. We let Dawn have free reign with the only direction being we wanted bright colors and did not want to go down the pastel/dainty route. Aside from a few pictures, we did not give Dawn much input (which can be frustrating to a florist, we're sure). However, Dawn went with the flow and did not pressure us at all. It's like she read our minds. From the bouquets to the centerpieces the flower arrangements were beyond what we had expected. Two of my bridesmaids even took their bouquets home and replanted the succulents. Not only did Dawn nail it with the floral design and colors, we received so much more flowers and greenery than we thought our budget allowed. The highlight was the amazing display for our sweetheart table, a detail that our guests still remark about. Honestly, flowers and centerpieces were not high on our priority list for the wedding, but looking back on the day, it is one of the details and memories that stand out the most to both of us. Love Dawn and wish we could get married again to relive that amazing day and those wonderful floral arrangements!Sent on 11/28/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you Kristine!! The aesthetic that we created was so much fun! Nothing typical, not the same old thing. I had other vendors compliment the look we created and that's always a huge win for me! I am so glad that you were trusting and willing to let me design something that was vibrant and exciting - thank you for that! LOVED your wedding!! xoxo ~D
Rachel · Married on 08/10/2018
Dawn did an incredible job with our wedding. She completely exceeded our expectations! She was SO flexible and beared with me while I asked question after question and sent ideas back and forth. She always offered an honest opinion based on experience. She was willing to work with us for a reasonable price and offered cost-efficient ideas as well. When I got the venue and saw my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets, I was floored. They were exactly what I always pictured. I hadn't even seen the flowers throughout the rest of the venue yet but knew it would be incredible! I can't wait to get my photographer pictures back to see it all put together because the day just went by so fast! I took in what I could but I know it's going to look even better in pictures.Sent on 08/29/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Rachel - you were so sweet and your look was just like you! We had a great time giving you a fresh and clean look to compliment the venue. We are always so excited to hear that your expectations were exceeded - that is always our goal! Congratulations again! xo ~D

Accommodating, flexible & responsive!
Dawn was incredible throughout the entire wedding planning process. She is super responsive and understanding. She was always willing to work with my ideas and offered tons of options within my budget. I never got to meet her in person because I live in LA and was unable to drive down to SD frequently, but our communication never skipped a beat! She was in communication with me throughout the week of my wedding and even after the wedding to make sure everything was set up as planned. Over the course of 5-6 months, I was constantly e-mailing her new ideas, inspiration photos and questions and she always responded with her honest opinion based on experience as well as other possible options. I'm a super indecisive person so her opinion and flexiblity was very helpful! When I walked into my bridal suite on my wedding day and saw my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets, I was floored. They were exactly what I envisioned and more! Later, when I saw the tables and archway, I was even more blown away. Our flowers lasted the entire day/night and the hotel we stayed at even used our sweetheart table set up in their lobby after we left (lol). Dawn did an incredible job from our first consult phone call to my wedding day! I highly recommend her.Sent on 12/13/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you SO much Rachel! You were such an amazing client to work with and I'm so glad you liked what we did for you. The whole process was great. That's so cool to hear that the hotel used the arrangement in their lobby after the ceremony - yay! Thank you again! xoxo ~D

Catherine · Married on 06/23/2018
From the very beginning, Dawn was extremely personable. We exchanged a couple emails before she asked to meet with us in person. She took the few details we had in mind for our wedding flowers, and elevated our vision better than we could have imagined. The colors she suggested complemented our attire perfectly and added an additional pop of color to our special day. She was very thorough in her communication, considerate of what we wanted, and paid attention to even the smallest details. She went above and beyond our expectations and provided us with incredible service!Sent on 08/10/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you so much Catherine! You two were a pleasure and I was so happy to give you even more than you thought you were getting - always my goal!! Thank you so much again for bringing me on board, it really meant a lot to me :-)

Kathy · Married on 06/09/2018
Dawn is a very talented florist. She takes clients with all sorts of different styles and preferences and is able to tailor jobs to fit within your budget, style and preferences. I know because she did flowers for my sister’s wedding who just wanted super simple floral arrangements with mostly hydrangeas. I wanted floral arrangements with orchids and some color but not too much color. Both events flowers came out beautifully. Dawn is very easy to talk to, from our first consultation and throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding day. She is very detail oriented and reconfirms details and asks many questions to make sure she fully understands her client so she could provide exactly what you want. I had a wonderful and positive experience with Dawn and I would recommend her to be your florist for any event.Sent on 06/23/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:So lovely to hear that you were happy Kathy! Your florals turned out wonderfully and using all of the different types of orchids that you wanted was so much fun! I thank you again for bringing me on board and for your sister recommending me :-) Congratulations again! xo ~D
Jori · Married on 04/12/2018
Dawn was amazing to work with! She was super detail oriented which I appreciated so much--it gave me peace of mind. The bouquets she made were unbelievable (photos attached). I didn't get any photos of the boutonnieres but they were beautiful as well. She went above and beyond to create a center piece for our dinner at a local restaurant (we got married at the courthouse in an elopement-style civil ceremony) that just topped off our whole day. I am still getting compliments on my bouquet from anyone who looks at the photos.Sent on 05/03/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:I am so glad that I could help make your day extra beautiful. I know that planning your wedding from afar can be stressful - I'm honored to have been a small part of your special day. You were a pleasure to work with and I'm so excited that you loved the flowers - I had a great time creating them! xo ~D
JC · Married on 03/24/2018
Gaslamp Floral knocked it out of the park for our wedding. We had our wedding in the event suite on the top floor of the San Diego library and as such, had a modern, urban venue. We wanted the floral arrangements to fit in with that. Dawn was amazing from beginning to end. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, so when she first met with us and asked the right questions to get an idea of what we were looking for, it was one less thing to worry about. As she honed in on what we wanted, there was a very easy dialogue between us and she was very receptive to our wants while still providing her expert opinion.
On the day of the wedding we went to the venue shortly before the wedding started and were blown away with the centerpieces and the wedding arch. We couldn't have imagined a better turnout. We got many compliments from our guests on the centerpieces. I would highly recommend Gaslamp Floral. It is well worth the money you will spend.Sent on 08/16/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you SO much you two! I had such an amazing time working with you and on your florals. Such a nice change doing something more urban, more masculine, and with very little actual flowers - but with different types of greenery. I was so excited when you told me your vision! Best of luck to you both and I hope to hear from you soon! XO ~D
Mary · Married on 02/24/2018
Dawn is terrific. We had a very clear vision of color and type of flower, and a budget. Dawn honoured our wishes, gave us displays that were bigger, fuller, and more beautiful than we'd imagined. She never tried to discourage a flower choice, as some florists tried to do, never made us feel that we were just one more client in a long line, and gave us more than I'd thought possible. The centerpieces were spectacular, the aisle decorations charming, and the bridal bouquets were perfect. Thanks, Dawn!Sent on 02/25/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank you SO much Mary - you were such a pleasure to work with! I wanted to be sure I did everything I could to give you and your family an amazing day!! I am so glad that I was able to meet and exceed your expectations!!! xo ~Dawn
Raquel · Married on 02/24/2018
From even our first meeting with Dawn, I knew she understood my vision. I had a pretty specific idea, and in talking with Dawn she was enthusiastic and assured me it was doable. She was very knowledgeable about the flowers and what would be in season, and didn’t try to talk me out of one flower to be replaced with another, as other florists had done.
I could not believe what I saw the day of my wedding. Dawn NAILED it, more than I ever could have imagined. The flowers were beautiful and healthy, and there were so many more decorating the venue than I had expected. We got so many compliments on our flowers, and I couldn’t have been happier. Thank you so much for all your work, Dawn; it was gorgeous!!Sent on 04/25/2018
Gaslamp Floral's reply:Thank YOU so much! You and your family were so wonderful and made my job even more fun than it already is :-) I am so glad that I was able to capture the look you wanted and go above your expectations - that's always my goal! Can't wait to see photos!! xo ~Dawn
