The best Florist in SD!!
Nancy was truly a blessing to work with. She was very attentive and helpful the entire way. One of the most impressive things about her was her overall style and communication when making my dream flower inspirations come true. I didn't know exactly what i wanted but boy did she get it right. My flowers were amazing and the guests could not stop talking about them. We literally had to fight over who was taking the centerpieces home.Sent on 08/13/2019
Nancy arrived to my venue on time and was so kind. She literally helped relax my nerves about everything. The cake, boutonnieres, bouquets, and arch were all done by her. I even had lights that were not normal but she adapted well and it came out gorgeous. It was all a show stopper. I recommend anyone planning a wedding to look at her instagram and see her gorgeous arrangements. It will be hard not to choose her.

Nancy was referred to me by friend and she was everything my friend said she would be. Nancy is seriously the best florist I know. She is so talented and has such an eye for detail. I loved all my flower arrangements for my wedding and literally cried when I saw my bouquet with a piece of my mothers wedding dress around it. I was so happy with everything she did for me and having Nancy do my flowers for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. She matched my vision perfectly and is so sweet. I cannot say enough great things about Nancy and her work. What a gem she is and truly an artist.Sent on 08/14/2019

I was introduced to Nancy through our wedding planner. We didn’t live in San Diego, so everything was done over email. Nancy was very easy to work with and very responsive. I didn’t have strong opinions on the type of flowers or even necessarily the colors (I know that sounds crazy for a wedding). I sent Nancy a photo of some wedding flowers that I liked and that’s all the direction she needed. She sent over a pdf of flower ideas for various parts of the wedding and after a couple back and forth emails, we had the concept set. Day of the wedding, I was blown away at quality of the arrangements. They were beautiful. I had numerous comments from guests about how expensive the arrangement looked. Nancy’s prices were very reasonable so I took this as a complement! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nancy again!Sent on 12/18/2018

Nancy is amazing and very easy to work with. I emailed her multiple times before our wedding and she got back to me right away. I was very comfortable with her and knew that everything would turn out beautifully. Sure enough, on our wedding day everything turned out just the way I imaged and better. Nancy did an amazing job and I think that everyone should use her for every occasion! Thank you, Nancy!!Sent on 05/30/2018

Nancy was a dream to work with! We met her about a year before our wedding, and she was very willing to work with our budget! She completely understood my vision, so we decided to give her a lot of creative freedom, and wow she did a great job! We ended up adding a few extra things along the way (sorry Nancy for a million emails), but she delivered and did an amazzzzing job! The centerpieces, the bouquets, the little extra flowers she placed everywhere (cake, decorations, etc) were all beautiful! Thanks Nancy!!!!Sent on 07/27/2018

Nancy was such a great choice for our wedding! Our flowers were absolutely gorgeous and she really listened to all my crazy bride emails about ideas that I had. She was dependable and on time. She was super flexible and so easy to work with. She is well liked by all the other vendors that work with her. I am so thankful we snatched her up for our wedding, because I like good people like her to be apart of our wedding!! Thank you Nancy!!!Sent on 03/21/2018

When I received my bouquet on the day of the wedding, I couldn't have been happier it was beautiful!!! I also forgot to order flowers for the Virgin Mary which I needed for the church. On the day of I asked her team if they had a few flowers to soare, and they quickly made me another beautiful bouquet and eased my stress!!!! I would recommend Nancy to every Bride!!!

Nancy is not only extremely talented, but she worked with us to make our wedding vision come true! She used our love for natural greens and neutral tones as well as incorporating aspects of or personal lives (using Beer hops for the boutonnière’s). I would highly recommend her for your future event!Sent on 11/03/2017

The flowers from Lovely Stems? Ah-mazing.Sent on 06/23/2017
I shared the vision for my wedding with Nancy, and she brought it to life better than I could have ever imagined. From the centerpieces to the bouquets to the draping garland and more, everything looked so dreamy and romantic. Our guests kept commenting on the flowers!
Nancy's thoughtfulness and organization helped make the big day go smoothly. She sorted and labeled the corsages and boutonnières, and even included some extra flowers to decorate the event space. Lovely Stems completely exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be happier.

Nancy is such a sweetheart and phenomenal at creating the most beautiful bouquets!Sent on 05/02/2017
We got married at Shadowridge Country Club on April 22, 2017. Lovely Stems Floral created bouquets for me and my five bridesmaids. They were exactly what I envisioned and I couldn't have been happier.
Nancy is very professional and in clear communication to make sure everything is perfect for your special day.
Brides, she is the florist for you!

I was referred to Nancy at Lovely Stems Floral by two of my friends who worked with her for their weddings in 2015 (the flowers at both of their weddings were beautiful). The initial consultation with Nancy was great!! I appreciated her recommendations for what I wanted at my wedding and loved the sample bouquet she had prepared. Nancy was very responsive whenever I emailed her throughout the planning process. The flowers for my wedding were gorgeous and were exactly what I wanted and what we had discussed. I received many compliments from my guests. I would highly recommend Nancy for any event. She prepared the arrangements for my bridal shower and they were beautiful too!!Sent on 12/06/2016

I'm so glad we chose Lovely Stems for our wedding flowers! Nancy is so sweet and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I didn't know much about the flowers I wanted, but I brought a few pictures to our consultation, and Nancy told us how she could use different flowers to create similar looks at different price points. All of the flowers turned out gorgeous and mirrored the photos i brought to the consultation. I highly recommend Lovely Stems. The flowers were exactly what I wanted, and the service was outstanding!Sent on 12/19/2016

Nancy was amazing! And the flowers couldn't have looked any better. I was on a budget and she was still able to work wonders. Before she left the venue she checked in with me to make sure everything was perfect, and it truly was. I highly recommend her. Thank you so much for making my wedding so beautiful, Nancy!!!Sent on 07/31/2016

Nancy and Lovely Stems Floral are wonderful. From the time that we met Nancy through our wedding, we were very pleased with her customer service and expertise. For our first meeting, Nancy put together a mock up of a centerpiece based on Pinterest photos I had sent her. It was beautiful and so helpful to finally see something in person of what we were envisioning. She was also very helpful as we planned everything out and adjusted our order so that it would fit our budget. The flowers were gorgeous on our wedding day and I would highly recommend Lovely Stems Floral to any couple planning their wedding!Sent on 11/30/2016

Nancy of Lovely Stems Floral did the flowers for my wedding this past August in La Jolla and they were so beautiful. From the initial consultation to the day of the wedding, Nancy was so easy to work with. She was prepared at the consultation with a mock-up that was exactly what I was looking for, and the flowers she created for the actual wedding were amazing. Everyone kept commenting on how beautiful all of the flowers and tablescapes were. Nancy is so sweet, she’s very responsive, and her prices were great. Would highly recommend her!Sent on 09/25/2016

Nancy with Lovey Stems was wonderful!! I highly recommend Nancy. It is only 2 days after our wedding and I felt compelled to take a moment to share our experience. We received so many compliments on the flowers and how beautiful they were. We had a modern rustic theme and Nancy understood my vision immediately. I met Nancy at a bridal show that I just "stopped by" on my way to a luncheon. I am so glad I did. As soon as I met her I felt comfortable with her. As we planned, she was continually accommodating, even offering to come by our house to pick up some small vases we wanted to use vs. asking us to come into her shop. She was flexible and understanding when we were making appointments. She did an excellent job communicating through the whole process and is just a very nice person. She executed our vision to perfection, AND, her pricing was very reasonable. I cant say enough about Nancy and Lovely Stems. Thank You Nancy for making everything beautiful and stress-free.Sent on 05/16/2016

Both my now-husband and I agree that Nancy was THE SINGLE BEST DECISION we made for our wedding!Sent on 05/17/2016
We started out the planning process pretty darn set on doing our own flowers, because we had a strict budget and everyone knows professional flowers are supposed to be crazy expensive. Our wedding planner convinced us to take one flower meeting, which was with Nancy, and THANK GOD we did.
We were very upfront that cost was a big issue for us. She instantly got the vibe we were going for, based on a few photos on my pinterest. She was full of ideas on how to minimize cost while retaining the look we wanted. She happened to have a mock-up she had done for another wedding, which she showed us, and it was so gorgeous and we thought "Oh no, we'll never be able to afford it" but SHE TOTALLY MADE IT WORK FOR US!! She also gave us a 10% discount for paying the bill in full early.
On the day of, she went way above and beyond our expectations! She got there early and set everything up herself. We had given her paint samples of our wedding colors, and she totally nailed it. The bridesmaids' bouquets were much fuller than we had expected based on our minimal order. We could only afford one "small" arrangement for our ceremony arch, but she delivered two huge arrangements. I had wanted to get some drapey white fabric for the arch too, but I just never got around to it. When I showed up and the arch was draped exactly the way I had imagined, I was like !!!. Turned out Nancy had somehow read my mind and set it up for us, without us ever asking for it.
At the wedding, everyone kept complimenting us on our florals and we were just like "Nancy's the bomb." Everyone wanted to take home centerpieces. The flowers made our budget wedding look super classy and expensive.
So for anyone thinking about doing their own flowers because of cost, take a meeting with Nancy and you will not regret it!
