Best Florist In Town!
Suzanne was more than Amazing for my wedding day she made the event absolutely stunning with her floral designs. I worked with Suzanne and her team for over a year during my engagement and she was quick to respond to emails and met with me on my designs I wanted. I had a Star Wars/Vintage/ Disney themed wedding and she really brought my ideas to life. She even put a hidden Mickey in my bouquet design (How COOL is that). If you are looking for a florist who goes above and beyond for you- use Suzanne Smith Designs.
Hiring her as my florist was the best decision we made and I am still sad my flowers couldn't last forever because they were so stunning.
Thank you Suzanne!Sent on 05/22/2019

Suzanne is seriously AMAZING! There is no other word or words to describe her. I first came in to talk about my ideas for my winter wedding and had no clue what I was doing. In one appointment she turned everything around. She drew sketches for my tables and told me what she thought would look great. She is very nice, gets back to me super fast through email, and always has time to listen to my concerns. She also involved me in every step and detail no matter how small. She aims for more than perfection and she hits it.Sent on 11/17/2016

Suzanne was AMAZING! First of all she is a wonderful person, which made working with her even better. Secondly, her knowledge of flowers blew me away. Because of this she was able to work within our means, and still provide a vision for the day that was absolutely beautiful. Suzanne did all of our bouquets, boutonnieres, arch decor/flowers, center pieces, aisle decor/flowers, head table flowers, and fresh flower decorations on the cake.Sent on 11/20/2016
She is full service - pick up and drop off - and I never had a thing to worry about. She is very responsive, professional and warm. I would HIGHLY recommend you work with Suzanne M. Smith designs. We couldn't have asked for a better flower & decor vendor!

My husband and I could not be happier with the service from Suzanne and her team. We went with the Designer's choice package, which allowed Suzanne to use her creativity and eye for design to put together beautiful floral arrangements and designs for us, in the style and colors we wanted, but using the most cost effective flower and material combinations. Her arrangements made such a difference in the look and feel of our wedding - she absolutely nailed the look we wanted and was so friendly and professional. It was a pleasure working with her.Sent on 08/29/2016

Suzanne was amazing to work with. From the first meeting, she was already like an old friend. She had so many fantastic ideas, and plenty of past work examples for me to pour over. She has tons of knowledge about the latest trends and upcoming trends in the industry, and she was able to incorporate all the great ideas within my small/moderate budget. When we got together at her house studio, we would talk for hours but the time would fly by. She was able to execute the floral and decor arrangements beautifully and without a hitch. I loved my floral arch and the bouquets for my bridesmaids and myself were stunning. I would recommend anyone in the Temecula/Fallbrook/Murrieta area to talk to Suzanne for their wedding florals. I am so glad I did!Sent on 11/15/2016

Our flowers were amazing! Everything was more gorgeous than I ever could've imagined! I felt like my personality really came out in our arrangements. Our wedding date was 111 degrees and she fluctuated her delivery schedule to as close to 'go time' as possible to ensure my flowers were still fresh and not wilting in the unrelenting heat. Can't thank Suzanne enough for her amazing work!Sent on 11/21/2015

Suzanne was such a pleasure to work with, she went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was the dream wedding we had envisioned. She listened and kept notes, getting all the flowers perfect, my dream was a romantic, vintage feel, like being in Italy in a beautiful garden and she nailed it. My bouquet was breathtaking, it popped in all the photos and lasted for several days after the wedding. The weather was in the 90's and humid and all the flowers withstood the elements thanks to her care. She made a beautiful canopy for my husband to stand under during the ceremony as well. You want a beautiful wedding of your dreams? Hire Suzanne!Sent on 06/30/2015
Suzanne M. Smith Designs's reply:Thank You! You were an amazing couple and yes the heat was something! LOL
Michelle · Married on 06/05/2015
We found Suzanne on our recommended vendor list for our Temecula wedding. Picking all the flowers was probably my favorite part of planning! Suzanne is so fun and knowledgable! And she always responded to all of my emails quickly. Our flowers were gorgeous! I loved looking at them all night. She's the best!Sent on 06/17/2015

Suzanne and her team were such a pleasure to work with! She took all my ideas and went way beyond my expectations. The decor/ design for my wedding was so gorgeous thanks to Suzanne M. Smith designs. The flowers, centerpieces, bouquets, etc. all absolutely stunning!! I also really appreciated Suzanne's prompt responses to my and emails and questions. She gave us advice and really made coordinating easy. I would highly recommend Suzanne and her team!Sent on 06/09/2015

Words cannot express what incredible work Suzanne does! She truly went above and beyond to make our wedding absolutely gorgeous. We received so many compliments on the floral design and decor for both our ceremony and reception - everything was so exquisite it could definitely be featured in a bridal magazine!Sent on 11/20/2014
I thought so highly of Suzanne from the start - of course all her previous work was so impressive, but her professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail was absolutely wonderful. She had inquired about our theme, which was vintage glam, and with all the samples and photos we provided her - she developed the most beautiful design possible that truly hit every idea we dreamt of! I was originally worried that our limited budget would curtail our initial vision, but she truly maximized our budget and even added elements that made it appear more impressive and glamorous than we imagined! I had dreamed of a vintage teardrop bouquet and she crafted the most beautiful bouquet a bride could want, adding sweet sparkly flourishes throughout. And all the other bridesmaids bouquets, groomsmen boutonnieres, etc were gorgeous and carried the theme throughout. And one element that really put things over the top was the chuppah that she had built for another wedding but reappropriated for ours, since she knew it fit our theme perfectly. She went out of her way to work it into our budget since she knew it would enhance the look for our special day. It was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!
Our wedding day went so smoothly thanks in large part to her and her team's amazing organization and efforts. She is not only the designer, but is very hands on - staying most of the day to make sure everything goes to plan - not something that most florists do! I would definitely recommend Suzanne to anyone. Not only is she an incredible designer, she is a joy to work with and made our wedding planning such an amazing time. Thank you Suzanne!

In addition to excellence in all of the above categories, Suzanne's attention to detail, her artistic talent and her wonderful personality all contributed greatly to and enhanced the magic and beauty of my daughter's special day.Sent on 11/03/2014
From my daughter's select color scheme and polka dot theme ...all the way to her use of baby artichokes (my new son in laws favorite) added a personal touch that would be difficult for anyone to match!!M Suzanne is awesome!!!
Katie · Married on 09/27/2014
Suzanne is THE best of the best in floral design! She spends a ton of time getting to know you and learning about your vision, and then brings it together perfectly the day of; she'll even go through flower booklets with you before to ensure you like each flower before including it in an arrangement.Sent on 11/04/2014
She's honest with you about what will look great and what could look tacky, as well as what will and will not fit within your budget. Even with the tight budget we gave her and my bright color scheme/polka dot theme, she managed to deliver the most stunning floral design I've seen in a wedding yet. I had so many quirky/fun/DIY wedding pieces, and she managed to tie them all together with her designs. It was absolutely beautiful!
I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments we received from guests about the flowers. Our chuppah was beyond gorgeous, as were our centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnières and corsages; I'm still looking at pictures and smiling as I think about how excited I was by each and every detail she put into our wedding. Each of the designs seriously looked like it came straight out of the pages of a bridal magazine.
Not only is Suzanne a gifted designer and true professional, but a fantastic, kindhearted and fun person. It was such a pleasure working with her from the first email through to our in-person meetings and the moment she brought in my bouquet, when tears of joy ran down my face by the beauty of her work. Words can't express the gratitude I feel toward her for how special she made our wedding day.
I just love this woman and highly recommend her! Thanks Suzanne!
Suzanne M. Smith Designs's reply:It was my pleasure!! Creating with your touches and adding a few of my specialties. It was just a beautiful day!! I wish you every happiness!
Shanna · Married on 06/21/2014
Suzanne was amazing. She was very inviting and spent a few hours with us going over design details. She incorporated items and decorations that we had purchased into her design. She was always available for phone calls and emails. We actually had to change venues and she had no problem coming up with a new design to fit our new venue. The day of the wedding she and her staff helped set up our decorations and everything was just beautiful. Everyone loved the flowers and I got tones of complements. I loved my bouquet so much I had it professionally preserved and will be displaying it on my wall.Sent on 09/01/2014

I got married on April 26,2014. Suzanne made my wedding more beautiful than I could imagine with all the beautiful flowers. She is so talented & passionate about what she does that makes a huge difference. My bouquet was the most beautiful bouquet I have ever seen,& went perfect with my dress along with the bridesmaid & groomsmen. I had a spring garden feel for the reception. My guests couldn't stop talking about how different & beautiful it all was. I highly recommend Suzanne for your wedding florist.Sent on 05/21/2014

Shannon · Married on 10/05/2013
We were recently married in Temecula and hired Suzanne as our florist. I can't begin to tell you how wonderful Suzanne is so I will just start from the beginning. We had a budget which barely met Suzanne's starting price. I have to admit that was a little off-putting but we made an appointment to meet Suzanne and Chris and I left knowing that she was the one we wanted. She is great with ideas and she guided us through everything so we could really visualize what the wedding decor would look like. We could only afford the florist's choice but I can honestly say that I had complete trust in Suzanne and that is saying a lot coming from a control freak. Suzanne is extremely busy but if I needed to see her or drop something off, or even run some ideas by her, she always made time. We went through a very thorough walk-through of the venue and she and her staff really came through on the day of.Sent on 10/19/2013
Our wedding ceremony and reception area looked stunning. Everyone loved it and most importantly, Chris and I loved it. Thanks Suzanne!!
Chantel · Married on 08/31/2013
I will do my best to review her as she deserves! When I met Suzanne I had met with several florists before her. The reason I kept looking is because I felt no one really understood what was going on in my head.Sent on 09/06/2013
At my first appointment with her, she sat with me and let me talk and talk and talk. Then- she started doing these sketches as I spoke and pulled out cards with photos of flowers in them. Then I kept talking and showing pictures and then she pulled out catalogs of glass designs, decor and other items. Lastly, I told her my budget. Now it was her turn to talk. And boy did she impress me! She is more than knowledgable about flowers, designs, other designers, and what is trending currently. She sat with me for over two hours and we even made a rough draft estimate. Then she added a ton of things I hadn't thought of- hanging chandeliers, curtains, aisle decor, etc. When I walked out of there I knew that if I went with her- she would get the job done.
Months and months of planning later and so many emails later- she made my vision come true! Her designs, her own ideas and of course mine came to life and were so beautiful! She gave me exactly what I wanted!
I must mention the professionalism of her and her staff. There was so many of them but they were so quiet, so respectful, and so quick! People running in and out and you would never guess! My bridal bouquet was gorgeous and my aisle decor was breath taking! Our reception tables glistened and gleamed! It was so beautiful. Best part- she took care of everything. 24 hours before my wedding I needed an additional corsage and without any hesitation- she said she would do it. She also did the floral decor on I'm cake and I was blown away! She is a one stop shop.
Suzanne makes it look so easy! She is so prepared, so knowledgable and so professional. I could not be happier with her, her beautiful designs and hard work. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

My flowers were exactly what I had imagined. The understated elegance of the cross flowers, cake flowers and centerpieces touches enhanced the natural beauty of Temecula.Sent on 05/14/2013
I appreciated working with Suzanne as a vendor because of her prompt communication, flexible nature and excellent prices. I would not hesitate to recommend her to a bride in the future or anyone needing floral work.
Summer · Married on 10/20/2012
From the first meeting to my wedding day, Suzanne was not only the consummate professional- knowledgeable, friendly, thorough, and COMMITTED to staying on budget, she was an integral and irreplaceable part of all of our planning. Throughout the year or so before our wedding as I found myself bogged down in the details, I could always count on Suzanne to reignite my passion for planning by seeing my vision through her eyes- always exciting, full of whimsy and chock full of anticipation for our event.Sent on 11/14/2012
Let’s talk about the flowers- WOW! The quality was phenomenal! The special details added a personal touch that made all the difference. Everyone in our wedding party looked so beautiful holding or wearing her designs and our centerpieces were being fought over by the end of the night. In regards to vision, she will take your dream and make it work all without passing on any of the extra charges seen by a lot of other gougers in the wedding industry. I came to her with a modest budget but a HUGE vision, and she was able to make miracles happen. What Suzanne did for us was beyond even our wildest dreams and we will be thankful to her for years to come.
As if all of this wasn’t enough, there is yet another reason we love Suzanne. Sometimes you get the pleasure of crossing paths with genuine, talented, good hearted people who enrich the lives of all those around them simply by the joy they have for what they do. Suzanne is one of those people. As the planning began to wind down, I realized our project was ending and was wistful as I knew it meant our daily emails would cease. This is a testament to how much Suzanne LOVES what she does, and how GOOD she is at doing it. She made a process that I anticipated to be stressful supremely enjoyable and something I missed as soon as it was over.
Thank you SO much Suzanne- not only for making our wedding dreams come true, but for helping make the process so easy, fun & memorable. We <3 you!
Suzanne M. Smith Designs's reply:Thank You Summer and Adam, you were and will always be a special couple to me! Creative and Fun!! I hope to design for you again as you walk down your Life path together! Remember to always stop and smell the flowers!!!

It's almost been a week since my wedding and I'm still looking at a bunch of lovely flower arrangements in my house and on my desk at work. From the first meeting with Suzanne I knew we were in good hands and that she'd do everything possible to make sure we got the look and feel that we wanted AND that the flowers would be top quality. Flowers are very important to me, I love them, and I wanted them to be a main part of the event, not just a decoration. I wanted our flowers to really reflect our personalities, and set the tone and feel we wanted for our wedding. Suzanne helped to bring my ideas to life and ensured that everything was of top quality. Her attention to detail and her added touches as a designer really took everything to a different level. As I have time to go back and look at people's pictures, I'm just so happy with the flowers and all the arrangements.Sent on 10/05/2012
My bouquet was so pretty, I absolutely loved it. It was just as we discussed, but even better. And BIG! And the boy's boutonnieres were just perfect.
Suzanne is great at responding to emails and always kept me updated with the status of things coming together and sent pictures along the way. She takes care of the set-up and even waited through the ceremony and moved flowers from the ceremony to the reception area. She even left boxes for us to pack everything up into after the wedding. I would highly recommend working with Suzanne, it was truly a pleasure. She's a great person and a lot of fun to work with. She is someone who really enjoys and takes pride in her work.
Suzanne M. Smith Designs's reply:Thank You! I truly had a ball designing your beautiful wedding! I wish You and your new Husband every happiness!

I am more than impressed at the quality and creativity of Suzanne's creations. She went beyond my expectations and I am so happy I found her. She was able to create something magical within my budget. After the wedding Suzanne emailed me pictures of all the flower arrangements, which, was soooo appreciated because on the day of the wedding there is too much going on to be able to notice every little details. Flower arrangements are everything to a wedding and you need to find the right person to do it. I will recommend her to all my friends who will marry in the near future~!Sent on 05/29/2012

Our flowers and service was top notch. The personal attention to details was extraordinary in today's market. I would not have changed a thing and I also did not have to worry that things were done the way I wanted them even when I was not sure what it was that I wanted. I was directed gently to the best possible for our wedding. I highly recommend Suzanne to anyone getting married or for their special event in life.Sent on 02/07/2012

After meeting with several different florists in the months before my wedding, I was convinced I was not going to find the perfect one. If you're a bride-to-be, you know how agonizing it is to meet with people who just don't seem to know what they're doing. The florists I met with were either too expensive, lacked vision and creativity, or weren't on time! I was almost at my wit's end when I came across Suzanne Smith Designs on wedding wire. Her reviews were so wonderful that I literally crossed my fingers as I sent her an email hoping she had my date available. I could tell right away from Suzanne's first email response that she was unlike the rest. She was completely in tune with what I wanted. I told her our price range and right away she promised she would be able to do something fresh, unique, and romantic in my colors. Absolutely no runaround. Upon meeting with Suzanne I was left with such a peace of mind that I was honestly almost in tears of happiness that the search was over. If she says she'll do it - SHE WILL DO IT and do the most amazing job you've ever seen. So warm and fun-loving, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. Even my husband loved her! She provided the WOW we were looking for while staying completely on budget. Everyone was super impressed with the gorgeous floral designs she came up with. I will definitely recommend her to all my friends and family!Sent on 08/17/2010
