Vanessa did a beautiful job on our flowers! I just told her what kind of flowers I wanted in the bouquets, and she designed them - GORGEOUS! My only regret was we left for our honeymoon immediately, so I couldn't enjoy the flowers after the wedding ;-)Sent on 11/17/2010

I cant say enough about Vanessa, from the momment we met her we knew she was the florist for us. She worked within our budget, and at the wedding went above and beyond anything that we could have imagined. She exceeded our expectations with her attention to detail, genuinely loving spirt- she truly loves her job and it shows! Everyone at the wedding raved about how beautiful the flowers were. She is amazing!Sent on 08/02/2010
I HIGHLY recommend her!

Vanessa was wonderful, I had booked with a florist 9 months before my wedding, unfortunately they were unhelpful, unorganized and unresponsive. Despite coming to her just two months before the wedding Vanessa was gracious and welcomed me with open arms. She was very easy to talk to, understood exactly what I wanted and made alternative suggestions in the hot pink peonies that I wanted were no longer available. Fortunately for me, they were available. Vanessa was at the hotel early and had everything ready to go at the ceremony site to. The flowers were simple, elegant and beautiful just as I had pictured.Sent on 07/14/2010
I would definitely recommend Vanessa to any bride, her shop deals ONLY with events and custom orders so you really get an unique feeling working with here without all the extra "florist" type set up and interruptions you might expect.

Vanessa was so fun to work with. When I met her the first time, I knew she would be our florist because of her willingness to listen, and ability to work with the limited budget we had. The final product came out just like a imagined, maybe better! Her arrangements really made the reception hall and church look beautiful and special.Sent on 03/22/2010

Vanessa was amazing. The most personable, reliable and all around wonderful vendors we worked with. From the first moment we met, we hit it off. Vanessa was able to understand my vision and make it a beautiful reality. She was always quick to return my calls and spend as much time as I needed discussing every detail. I would recommend her to ANYONE without a second thought!!Sent on 11/02/2009

Vanessa of Simple N' Elegant is extremely creative, attentive, and professional. I could not have asked for a more pleasureable experience. Before our initial meeting, she asked me about my vision and about my color scheme. I gave her information on budget, the room layout, and ideas we had. When my fiance and I showed up, she had two beautiful arrangements waiting for us. I was sold that instant.Sent on 08/08/2009
Vanessa has put up with my many emails and meetings in the most professional way. She listened to our ideas, and built upon them in the most extraordinary ways. Our bouquets were exquisite - they went perfectly with our theme and the colors were absolutely amazing. She took sashes from the bridesmaids' dresses and made them into incredible wraps for their bouquets and used them as bows for our lower centerpieces. Vanessa also took an heirloom locket I had with sentimental pictures and incorporated it into my own bouquet. Her attention to the details really makes her stand out from any vendor we have met with this past year.
The floral arrangements truly brought the reception to life; they were vibrant, fresh, and more beautiful than we could ever have imagined. We really can tell that she puts her heart and soul into her work, and for that we are so grateful.

Vanessa was amazing! She is easy to work with and always available. She did a great job of understanding my "vision" and making that into a reality. I liked the fact that she made me a mock bouquet a few months before the wedding so I could see what it was going to look like. She avails all of her resources to you. She also helped us out with favors and chair covers. Everything was delivered on time, as promised. She even took my flowers to be preserved because I was going on my honeymoon and couldn't do it myself. Her prices are very reasonable. She is much cheaper than any florist I went to. She will work with any budget and make your day beautiful!Sent on 08/07/2009

Vanessa was great! She saw the vision I had and made it better. It was more than I could have hoped for! And a week later, my bouquet still looks great. My family couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful the flowers were.Sent on 08/07/2009

Simple N' Elegant is a gem in Norwalk. I was so happy to have found a local florist to do my wedding. It was accomodating and I am a very satisfied customer. The only reason why i gave a 4.5 on quality of service is only b/c we were short on one of the bouteniers that I had paid for in advance. Other than that I was very happy with my centerpieces they made the room look amazing at our venue and my wedding table was gorgeous. I highly recommend this vendor to anyone planning an event, the communication flow b/w the vendor and you is of great quality along with the entire planning experience.Sent on 05/13/2013

Vanessa is great to work with! She was so patient with me when I had hard time choosing the bouquets. She spent hours helping me go through flower samples and magazine pages - she totally didn't have to do that. She responded to my calls/emails promptly and accommodated all the requests I had. On my wedding day, everyone was impressed with the flowers. I couldn't believe how beautiful of a job she did with my budget! It was worth every penny. I highly recommend Vanessa!Sent on 09/21/2009

Vanessa did an outstanding job with my flowers. My bouquet was gorgeous and the flowers at the reception were better than I had imagined. In the beginning, it was hard to contact Vanessa but as the date got closer, she was more responsive and was very helpful and flexible with changes that I had. I would highly recommend Simple N' Elegant to future brides!Sent on 07/09/2012

First of all, Vanessa is lovely. She is warm, she listens, she's very open to suggestions and responsive to your "vision" in a practical way (ex. this won't work because its not in season, etc). I met her and immediately liked her. Secondly, I changes my mind about 1-2 months before the wedding and she was happy to sit down with me for a second consultation to review what changes I wanted. Everything was exactly how I wanted on the wedding day.Sent on 10/11/2011
When it came to pricing- we had a set amount we felt comfortable spending on flowers and when her estimate was higher she explained what flowers could be replaced where to bring the cost down for us.
I was very happy with her work- in particular my bouquet was absolutely stunning. I will absolutely be preserving it.
Shonna · Married on 07/24/2010
Vanessa was great to work with. She was able to find the ribbon in the color I wanted. My ceneterpieces looked great but were dead by the end of the night (it was a hot day... but the room had A/C). I was expecting the bouquets to be a bit bigger.Sent on 09/25/2010

Love, Love, Love Simple N Elegant. Vanessa is very professional, has great communication, cares about her clients, and has excellent knowledge of flowers.Sent on 12/04/2008
The day of the wedding I showed up an hour before the ceremony and EVERYTHING was completed, in place, with precise detail! I teared up when I saw the ceremony site. Loved it!
Vanessa, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job that you and your team did!
Kristi · Married on 12/16/2009
Unfortunately we did NOT have the same experience as all the other couples. Everything with Vanessa was great ...until the day of the wedding. She was easy to work with ..worked within our budget ..she even lowered her cost below what we were willing to pay. ...The reason why I gave her one star is because on the day of my wedding the flowers/bridal bouquet delivered to me was HORRIBLE ...the flowers looked like they were spray painted by a 2 year old and the flowers looked dead already!!! I'm not sure if it was the budget that was the issue or not ...if so, I would have paid more money to have alive looking flowers that looked professionally done ...but I would not recommend this vendor. Although, Vanessa does have a really nice and great personality. She is easy to get along with! ...Just absolutely would NOT recommend as a florist ...especially for your WEDDING day!!! :(Sent on 02/03/2010
