Working with Monica was just a magnificent experience from start to finish. I had no idea what I wanted from my wedding flowers AND I'm pretty price-sensitive, and Monica handled both issues with class, professionalism, and excellent taste. She came up with creative ways to achieve the look I wanted within the budget I had proposed, and she threw in really meaningful, tasteful extras to enhance the whole look. She never seemed frustrated or burdened by my endless e-mails about florals, linens, centerpieces, etc. and she offered nice and honest feedback when what I was suggesting didn't make sense. I was absolutely blown away by the work she did - from the bridal party bouquets to the wedding canopy to the spectacular table arrangements, I really could not have imagined a more beautiful wedding. That she was patient, communicative, kind, and accommodating were just icing on the cake.
Thank you, Monica - from the bottom of my heart!
Monica is a gem! I first met Monica at a bridal store and she has done many weddings for my clients since. It's not just her beautiful work, but her professionalism, detail to what the client really wants to express with her florals, and her fun personality that makes working with Monica totally worth it! I love photographing beautiful florals and Monica never disappoints. I love seeing my brides open up their bouquet on the morning of the wedding and fall in love with it immediately. Thank you Monica for your hard work and lovely florals!
Monica is an AMAZING florist. I gave her my color scheme and off she went with ideas. I remember that I was even impressed by her proposal/contract. When I saw the bouquets in person my heart melted, she knew exactly what I wanted! They went perfectly with all the decor, and she made boutonnieres, corsages and flower halos for us too. Her prices are very reasonable, and she will cater to what her clients want in order to offer something very special and personal. I would gladly hire her for any of our future events. I highly recommend In Full Bloom by MJL!
Monica (the owner of In Full Bloom) did an outstanding job with the flowers for my August wedding in Winters, CA. She was incredibly professional, responsive, creative, and helpful when working with me. She was able to help me create the exact look and feel that I was envisioning for my wedding. She was able able to work with me on my budget and was timely and clear in her correspondence. Her arrangements for my wedding were unbelievably gorgeous. Her knowledge of wedding decor, flowers and the wedding industry her so helpful when planning my wedding. Thank you Monica!!
Monica is an unbelievably talented floral designer and a wonderful person to work with! The flowers for my wedding were beyond gorgeous, and I think many other florists would have charged my triple what Monica did for the same quality. The flowers she sourced for my wedding (a mixture of peonies, roses and hydrangeas) were the freshest and most beautiful I've ever seen. I asked her to also decorate my cake with fresh flowers and it was truly a centerpiece of the reception. Just Stunning! Not only was my bridal bouquet everything I hoped it would be, but the bridesmaids were gorgeous and unique. My favorite things about Monica's floral arrangements: she has a wide array of really unique vases you can rent for your tables. We had a variety of table sizes at dinner and Monica came up with creative arrangements to work with the different table layouts. She used a unique array of mercury glass and antique bottles which was so perfect with my theme! Also: Monica re-purposed the flowers from the ceremony for centerpieces which I really appreciated. I would recommend Monica to anyone! She is incredibly talented!
From the first communication, Monica was very responsive and a delight to work with. I know that my wife and I might not have been the easiest people to get in touch with, but Monica worked with us and what she provided exceeded our expectations. We are very appreciative of her service and enjoyed her arrangements very much. We would absolutely consider using In Full Bloom by MJL for another event.
Thank you Monica for the beautiful homecoming and prom corsages. We are always so happy when we pick up your corsages, unique and beautiful everytime.
Monica is a very professional, very unique florist with a style that is a lot more Style Me Pretty than ordinary florists I looked into. She was able to take some fairly elaborate pinterest posts and blend them together in a way that totally captured my style. She never kept me waiting for an email or quote, and was able to be flexible as things changed.
Monica exceeded our expectations, and delivered the most beautiful bouquets and centerpieces on our wedding day. She was a delight to work with; very responsive and totally captured the vision we had for our wedding. Monica provided valued service and great prices. We highly recommend In Full Bloom by MJL to any any bride.
Monica was great to work with and really took my ideas and turned them into exactly what I wanted. I didnt know a lot about flowers and I really just gave her a general sense of the type of wedding and ambiance I wanted and I ended up loving every flower arrangement. The pricing was comparable to other florists and she was incredibly responsive. Everything was set up and ready to go on time for the wedding but not too early, so the flowers looked fresh at the time of the event.
Monica Lynn was extremely professional, easy to contact, and very friendly. The flowers were gorgeous! I was very happy with my bouquet, my isle flowers, flowers for my cake and the flower petals for the flower girls. She even brought the flowers to my wedding site the day of the wedding so there was no stress on my part to have them picked up.
Monica is a true talent! I would not hesitate to hire her for your special day. She took my vision of wildflowers in shades of Lavender, Peach and Honey and it was exactly as I envisioned but even more! It honestly took my breath away when I saw the bouquets and centerpieces. There was an abundance of flowers, full and colorful. It added so much to our outdoor wedding that was already so pretty. Many guests complemented on the flowers. She was always available and responsive, and this was key since we were planning a wedding from Los Angeles that took place in Granite Bay, CA. The flowers lasted for many days later and it was so hard to part with them. Thank you, Monica for making our dream day so beautiful:).
I hired Monica to do the flowers for my wedding. From the start she was a joy to work with and was very flexible with me and my ideas. She was able to bring my vision to life and also went above and beyond what I expected. The flowers were beautiful and I couldn't have been happier.
Monica, thank you so much for all the beautiful floral arrangements!!! They were so gorgeous and a few of my guests commented how the arrangements were belong in a bridal magazine--the compliments were endless! I can't thank you enough for being so patient with me, being so responsive to my countless questions and changes! I feel incredibly blessed to have you as my florist!
Your life long fan,
Marcie (Bride--May 2013 Wedding)
Monica, with In Full Bloom by MJL, is great at creating beautiful flower arrangements. We were very pleased with the results of the floral ensemble at the wedding. I believe that she nailed the vision we were trying to create by helping to direct us and keeping things simple. We were stress cases alone and sometime went to meetings feeling really overwhelmed with other aspects of the wedding planning but Monica was able to keep us calm and focused on one goal at a time. Where we fell short, she stepped up. The reason we picked Monica is because we believed in her talent and confidence in her eye for style and vision (which we seriously lacked). She worked with our budget and had very pretty rental items. Monica, though working on other weddings and events, was able to give us the time and attention we needed in order to feel comfortable with where we were going. Needless to say we were a large and difficult group to work with given that the bride was living out of the city; she handled it with finesse! These flowers decorated our family houses for weeks to come! However, a few of our flowers got a little weak under the hot sun, until they were returned to water, and a couple of brown spots on bridesmaid bouquets. Overall very pleased with services. We had a 250 guest wedding, so to any brides, make sure that you are not going the cheaper route of breaking down because that was a headache. But like I said, the wedding and reception were beautifully decorated with flowers! We loved it!
I LOVED the flowers for my wedding!!! Monica did such a FABULOUS job and was a pleasure to work with. I emailed her pictures of what I liked and she surpassed my vision. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. Thank you Monica :)
Monica was perfect! She was quickly responsive (and patient), she carefully took care of my "picky" requests, she prepared a proposal that fitted my budget, and in the end, the flower arrangements she made were even better than what I expected. I was in love with my bouquet! Next time I am planning an event and need flowers, I will go towards her without any hesitation.
Monica was our florist for our wedding in April, and was amazing, professional, warm, creative, and wonderful from the first consultation meeting through to the morning after the wedding when she dropped by to say hello and pick up vases! Picking Monica as our florist was one of the best vendor decisions we made for the whole wedding. She did such a wonderful job capturing our vision, special requests, and then running with the criteria to create such a beautiful ceremony and reception. During the reception at our head table, I took a breath to look around, looked at the center pieces, and said to my sister 'this is everything I wanted'. It was perfect and I can't wait to recommend Monica to all of my friends getting married in California!
Most beautiful flowers we've seen. Loved the bouquet and table flowers. Better than what I had expected! I was sick at the time and Monia was very helpful!!
Monica, the owner of In Full Bloom, is truly a talented florist. Busy as I am, she somehow with patience, managed to get out of me the exact details of what I had envisioned, but couldn't put into words.
The flowers for my wedding were better than I could have ever asked for. The bouquets were full and GORGEOUS and the boutonnieres for the boys were perfect as well.
She did an incredible job at coordinating all the details since she used a flower mart different than her regular go to flower mart due to the location of my wedding.
She was very professional and kind, and did I mention patient?! She emailed regularly to communicate with me, kept me on track with the important decisions she needed from me to continue to move forward and gave me my space when I was stressed with life and planning a wedding.
All of my center pieces were a different arrangement of assorted items. As I collected them I took pictures of each item arranged for each table and the way Monica transformed them into centerpieces, was beyond creative.
She was so great at understanding my vision.
She created a Pinterest board for a jumping off point and provided me with a detailed concept/order form to ensure that we were both on the same page prior to placing my flower order.
She has great taste and is very creative.
I highly recommend her services for your wedding, or anything you need arrangements for.. She is amazing!
The flowers were perfect. Better than I could have imagined!!! We were so impressed and beyond happy with how the flowers/centerpieces truly MADE the room! Bouquets were amazing as were boys' flowers, moms' and grandmas'! Love you, Monica! Thank you SO much!!!
Having already attended a few weddings in which Monica was the florist, I absolutely knew I had to have her do the flowers for my own. She had always done not only an amazing job, but such a unique and creative job as well. Going into our first meeting my fiancé and I had a pretty clear cut vision of what we wanted our wedding to look like. Knowing we couldn't wiggle everything we wanted into our budget, Monica worked with us to figure out ways to cut costs and meet our budget but still incorporate most of what we wanted without reducing the quality or the look. Most of what we wanted centered on a photo of a brides bouquet I had asked her to replicate. When it arrived on the big day I wanted to cry; however, my makeup artist told me I wasn't allowed :) The bouquet matched to a tee, and in fact I think it was better than the photo. Monica also added a few personal touches of her own. Weeks before the wedding she asked if she could add a few things as long as I was okay with it. Knowing my anal personality I would typically hate losing that type of control, but I fully trusted Monica's artistry and she blew us out of the water. There were so many things going on on our big day, we truly didn't realize how much Monica had done. The next morning all of the flowers were piled into one room and it was completely filled and smelled and looked absolutely amazing. The flowers even lasted for several days after the wedding, and we actually had to donate most of them before we left for our honeymoon. Words cannot express how grateful we are to Monica for helping us create our perfect vision for our wedding. It would not have been the same without her and we would 120% recommend her to anyone looking for a florist for any type of event!
In Full Bloom by MJL (Monica) created perfect floral arrangements for our daughters backyard wedding on June 9, 2012. Fucshia, orange and chartreuse were the colors chosen by our daughter. Our only suggestions were whimsical, dangling, colorful yet still classy. Monica designed a beautiful bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, tabletop centerpieces, hanging mason jars for the walkway, a spectacular front door swag, and arrangements for the ceremony archway. Everyone at the wedding commented on how gorgeous and outstanding the flowers looked! I could not have been more pleased!
Monica is patient, efficient, reasonably priced, organized and professional! Do I need to say more?
Thank you to Monica for her expertise and creativity!

Monica from In Full Bloom is amazing. I had a general idea of what I wanted for my wedding in Napa, the colors and some of my favorite flowers, but that was it. She was able to take my few ideas and make it into a beautiful wedding filled with gorgeous flowers. And like most brides I was trying to be very budget conscience. If there was a flower I liked that was on the more expensive side she would suggest a comparable flower at a lower price. Monica really has an eye for detail and everything came out stunning. I could not have been more happy. I would recommend Monica from In Full Bloom to any bride-to-be!
Monica took my vision and turned it into the perfect reality! When I first met with Monica, I didn't have colors I was going for but rather a specific look/feel. Instead of being thrown off by my somewhat vague descriptions, Monica took my vision and ran with it. We communicated through pictures and a few meetings and the finished product was amazing. I continuously get compliments on the bouquets! It was important to me that the flowers were everything I dreamed of and Monica exceeded even that. Because Monica's business is run on a smaller scale versus a large florist, I felt like I received truly personal attention so that I ended up with flowers the expressed me. Highly recommend!
