Post-wedding update...Sent on 01/22/2017
The beauty of the flowers blew my mind!! The bouquets & boutonnières were exactly what we envisioned, the centerpieces were simple and beautiful getting the rustic feel across while allowing conversation without obstruction- again exactly what we wanted!! Sara did an absolutely amazing job!! I could not have asked for more... I will not use anyone but Sara for any of my floral needs (may just need a floral crown for maternity photos some day!!! ;)!!
Get Sara booked before it's too late!!!
Sweet Stems is sure to become one of the hottest best floral vendors out there... Sara has been so attentive to our needs- she has worked with us at every step of the way, even making sure every last minute evolving detail continues to get the needed attention. I get replies to my emails almost immediately, no matter how big or small the concern.
The initial booking process was incredibly thorough... We got to be an integral part of choosing every type of flower, filler, ribbon and bow!! She gave advice and at the same time allowed us to indulge in little things that she knew meant a great deal to us. And as testament to that, I have yet to see any arrangements on social media that I don't absolutely adore, which tells me she is able to CREATE the vision that she is given WITH the couple or client.
My wedding is month away and I have ZERO stress about my floral arrangements and bouquets... I couldn't be more convinced that she is going to make our wedding more whimsical and beautiful than I could even imagine!!
I'll update this post once the wedding is over but I just had to give a shout out so all those in the planning process know how things SHOULD be when it comes to your floral vendor!!
Sweet Stems Florist's reply:Awe Lea you just melted my heart, thank you soo much for these sweet words! <3 I greatly appreciate the time that you took to do this! I am looking forward to March 4th! :)

Sara is absolutely amazing at what she does! I did my homework on several florist in the area before hiring her to do my Wedding Flowers. I am soo happy I chose her, everything was to die for! She went above and beyond all of my expectations. She was very flexible and attentive to my wants and needs. She was always available for any questions or concerns I had along the way. She made me feel very comfortable knowing I had chose her from the start. My Wedding was better then I had ever imagined it could of been! You diffidently want to choose Sweet Stems Florist for your special day!!!Sent on 08/18/2016

Sara was the most warming and bubbly person ever! She met with me and my two year old and was able to help me decide on my decor, while also helping me handle my son! She has always been in great communication with me on my wedding. I will definitely be using her for future baby shower and events. Such a sweet and kindhearted person. We cannot wait for our wedding tomorrow to see how beautiful our vision turns out.Sent on 09/15/2017

Sara was great to deal with and helped answer all of our questions and even gave helpful suggestions on items we were sure of. All ordered items were ready for pickup day of and were in excellent condition. Process was seamless and didn't have to worry about anything with Sara. The magnetic clasp for the boutineers was also a great touch. Would highly recommend sara and sweet stems services for all our flower needs.Sent on 07/16/2018

Sara was not only a pleasure to work but ALL our wedding flowers/arrangements, etc were just beautiful. I got many compliments on her work after my wedding. Everything turned out even better than I could have imagined. She is very knowledgeable and was able to help guide my fiance and I on what we actually wanted for our wedding day. I would highly recommend working with Sara.Sent on 05/24/2018

If you are getting married in the socal area, I would stop looking right now and go with sweet stem florists. I loved working with Sara, she is amazing and my flowers were gorgeous. She is very affordable and works with you to get the exact flower arrangements you want. I knew my flowers would be amazing but the day of my wedding I was blown away. Everything was exactly how I wanted it but better than I could have imagined. A lot of the flower stores in the temecula area have minimums for weddings. Sara will build you a custom package based on what you want and you will have no stress. I got a lot of flower for a afforadle price. Do yourself a favor brides and go with her.Sent on 09/24/2017

I cannot even explain how amazing Sweet Stems is! They made all the flower crowns for my bridal shower, which were simply stunning. The wedding florals were out of the world, and I cannot even explain how easy Sara was to work with and how she brought our vision to life. They were a hit, and the gained a lifelong costumer in our family!Sent on 07/22/2017

Sarah was so kind, and I am so thankful Classy Kay Events recommended using her! I had no idea what I wanted my flowers to look like, but Sarah had these perfect little books to go through and let me point out flowers that I liked. I went from not knowing anything about flowers to my wedding day and receiving the most beautiful bouquet ever. She really takes the time to listen to what you want and is so talented!Sent on 07/25/2017

We hired Sweet Stems for our April 2017 wedding. I spoke with Sara before I found any other vendors as I had seen her name mentioned often on Facebook exchanges as a highly recommended florist. And I definitely can see why. She was so nice and took time to answer all my questions. She also helped me find our venue. From beginning to end she was always available to answer questions. When our wedding day arrived and she walked in with our bouquets, I fell in love. She perfectly captured what I had envisioned. The floral arrangements around the venue were just as gorgeous! I am so glad we had her to help make our day exactly what we had hoped for. Thank you so much, Sara and staff!Sent on 06/02/2017

Where do I even begin! I’ve never seen anyone so passionate about their work. Sara was hands down, the BEST florist. I didn’t feel like I was working with a vendor, but more so a friend. We got along great, she’s hilarious and made the whole process soo easy for me. She was very personable, made multiple last minute changes (sorry Sara!) overall, really worked with my crazy wedding brain and our flowers were an absolute dream!
Janey · Married on 02/04/2017
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!! And that describes Sara and her work mildly. First and foremost, I am not from CA so planning a wedding was a little difficult when it came to booking vendors and knowing what prices were acceptable. Sara helped us through it all. Helped us stay on budget, yet give us EXACTLY what we wanted and much more. I came to sara with Pinterest pics of ideas of the bohemian look, and she took it from there. I trusted Sara in making ALL decisions on types of flowers and how to decorate 5 minutes after meeting her. She was always in touch with us up until the wedding day and SO personable!! Best decision we made! LOVEE!! <3Sent on 02/13/2017

Sara is AMAZING! She listened to everything I wanted and helped me when I didn't know at all what I wanted. She has a depth of knowledge in this area and it shines through in her work. The flowers at my wedding were simply stunning and I'm still receiving compliments on them days after my wedding! Sara responded quickly to any questions or ideas I had and worked with me to make my vision come true and to make my vision better through her expert lens. I highly recommend hiring Sara for any of your floral needs!Sent on 02/08/2017

Sara is amazing! The BEST florist you will ever meet. I’ve worked with her personally for my engagement (and for my future wedding) and several times professionally for photo shoots and weddings. My clients adore her and her work is always flawless. She’s so creative and easy to work with. I can’t say enough positive things about Sweet Stems!Sent on 02/12/2018

First off, Sweet Stems provides an excellent product when it actually makes it to the venue. Her flowers are so beautiful and what I received on the day of my wedding was great.Sent on 07/26/2019
However, her assistants who came to set up all the arrangements sat around for HOURS "waiting for the sun to go down" in order to put flowers up around the venue. which makes no sense to me because there was a ceremony start time of 5pm. They were still setting up minutes before I was supposed to walk down the aisle, and only because my mother-in-law yelled at them to do something. She also saw them carting away a bunch of flowers that were never put out because they sat around all day not doing their job. flowers that I paid for. I had also discussed in an email to Her that I was going to have farm house tables, and that I needed to extend the greenery and flowers for the centerpieces down the table which never got done either. I was also supposed to have flowers set out for my cake when it got there and they didn't do that either. The only reason there WERE flowers on my cake was because my venue let us cut flowers from the garden there.
Guests were starting to show up and they were still placing flowers out. If all of that wasn't enough, her assistants were also heard talking badly about the other vendors that I had there by guests of mine. COMPLETELY unprofessional.
This florist is not cheap by any means and she is incredibly hard to get a hold of. My mother-in-law was only able to reach her the morning of, by filling out a new client form on her website. which tells me she only cares about getting paid, and not about cultivating a good relationship with her clients or even having any pride in her business. I expected a lot more from this vendor. I would not recommend this vendor to anyone.
in the pictures:
-the gate was supposed to be covered to hide the bridal party because we walked down. but instead we got leaves on the top of the arch with some "pops of blooms" - like what, 5 pops?
- The arch was supposed to have 15 different kinds of flowers on it according to contract I signed and agreed to.
- The table were supposed to have greenery down the length of the table with pops of blooms. That didn't happen.
- The cake with flowers from my venue, not Sweet Stems because they forgot to leave those for us.
If none of these things bother you, then by all means, waste you money by hiring this vendor.
