When my now wife and I began thinking about planning our wedding we discussed whether or not we wanted a wedding planner or even a day of wedding coordinator. We thought if we could be organized enough that everything would fall into place and we would not need a wedding coordinator. As we started getting everything together and picking a venue, dj, food, photographer, colors, plates, dessert table, center pieces, drinks, and so on and so on it was clear having a wedding coordinator was going to be a must.
The biggest reason why we decided to have a wedding coordinator was so we could actually enjoy our wedding rather than worry about when the first dance was, when to cut the cake, what order the bridal party was going to be in, are the grandparents where they are suppose to be?! This is a once and a lifetime event and my wife and I wanted to be in the moment enjoying our celebration rather than making sure the caterer was situated, the lights are in place and working, the dance floor was assembled properly, and so many other little details that you don't even think about when you first start planning a wedding.
This is where Nadine flourished! I am so happy she was able to take the pressure off of my wife and I on the day of our wedding. All I wanted to do was have as much fun as possible with all my family and friends and more importantly be able to enjoy every moment with my new wife!!!
Nadine was able to keep everything in order and was able to quickly fix any little hiccups that came up. Our aisle runner began to flap up in the wind right before the ceremony and she took some of the extra flower and candle holders and placed them on the aisle runner to not only keep it from flying away, but it added some nice decoration to the ceremony.
When the table, chair, and dance floor rentals all showed up there was some confusion with my wife and the rental company about who was suppose to set up the tables and chairs. Nadine was able to respectfully discuss the issue and resolve the problem professionally and promptly with the party rental company.
Throughout the night she constantly came up to my wife and I saying, "Is there anything I can do for you?" "how are you guys?" and most importantly, "Are you enjoying yourselves!?" Every time we could confidently respond with, "Yes, we are having a GREAT time." And that great time, was all due to Nadine's ability to keep everything under control, moving efficiently, and alleviating the pressure off of us to allow my wife and I to enjoy the best day of our lives.

I have nothing but great things to say about Nadine and I am SO excited to have her as our wedding florist! Not only was she flexible in meeting me the same day... but somehow she was able to put together a whole slideshow of what she had envisioned for our wedding with the little description I provided her and a few pictures I sent her! She was spot on with what I wanted!!! She had SO many great ideas and ways to both cut costs but also make the day memorable for my guests with adding special touches. I have met with a few florists and Nadines love for the business, passion, and enthusiasm set her apart from the rest!

Nadine from Studio Flourish was amazing! She was my "day of" wedding coordinator and helped along the way with any questions I had. Nadine was very professional yet made sure she got to know me, so that she could create the wedding I had always dreamt about. Nadine met with me multiple times before the wedding and answered any and all question I had about planning a wedding (she has been a part of many weddings, where as I was in the process of planning my first). She gave great advice on little details such as tipping vendors, locations of vendors at the wedding, processional order, etc. She made sure that all of my bases were covered so that there were no surprises on the wedding day. Nadine was very good at giving suggestions, but not pushing any ideas on me. She was very focused on what I wanted and what I was envisioning. She is very open minded to both traditional and non-traditional wedding ideas. Nadine is also a florist and is very creative. I fully trusted her taste and knew that if anything didn't look right the morning of the wedding when I was not there, that she would make it look beautiful!
Nadine helped set up my venue the day before the wedding and then she was there the day of and I didn't have to worry about ANYTHING! She met all of my vendors when they arrived and coordinated with all of them at the end of the night for their pay. Nadine and some of her crew cleaned up at the end of the night so that families and friends could continue partying at the hotel. She was very good and making sure that all of our vases, decor, etc. made it to the right people the following day.
Nadine problem solved very well on the fly when some guests has started eating from our small wedding cake before having cut the cake. When they brought the cake over it was beautiful with flowers in the area that had been cut, and it looked even better than what we had planned!
I would highly recommend Nadine for "day of" wedding coordinator! She is a great women, whose main goal is to make your day perfect! She is also a really sweet lady and you will have fun working with her! She exceeded all of my expectations and made my wedding day absolutely perfect!

Nadine with Studio Fleurish was absolutely amazing!! I hired Nadine to be our "day of" wedding planner. This was her first "day of" planning and you would never know it! She met with us several times before the wedding and was always quick to respond when I had any questions or concerns. It was hard for me in the beginning to relinquish control of this wedding I had been planning for about a year but after the first meeting with Nadine, I knew it was in good hands. Even though she was our day of planner she quickly took the reigns to ensure that all the details were in order and the vendors were on the same page ahead of time, which made me feel at ease. She arrived early on the wedding day and quickly made my vision for a chill beach themed wedding come to life. Nadine was quick to solve issues that came up (such as not having a "toss" bouquet), as she's also a florist so that helped as well! She stayed throughout the night and helped keep us on schedule and stayed after everyone was gone to help retrieve all our decorations and placed them all in our beach villa so we didn't have to worry about them. Nadine definitely exceeded my expectations and I don't think our wedding would have been pulled off without her. Theres no question that I would recommend her to anyone for her wedding planning or floral services. Thanks again Nadine, you were absolutely wonderful!

I cannot say enough great things about Nadine and her team at studio fleurish. Number one, the minute I heard back from my wedding wire inquiry I knew I wanted Nadine to do my flowers. She is one of those people that you feel like you've known for a long time, and brings such a warm presence you forget you're hiring her for anything. From the first meeting to the many emails in between Nadine maintained open and clear communication and it was always easy to be on the same page as her. She was incredibly flexible and you could tell that my vision was always her top priority. She was able to work with me and our small wedding budget, and I can't believe what she was able to deliver. She was always on time, always smiling, and always on her game. You would be making a huge mistake not to hire Nadine and studio fleurish for your wedding or any event that requires flowers :)Wedding: 10/16/2015

Nadine was excellent to work with! From our first meeting, I could tell she was passionate about her work. She has the background as a wedding coordinator, to really know the ins and outs of weddings. Plus, her experience as a florist in Rancho Santa Fe, gave her the added touch that went beyond my expectations. Every bouquet was beautiful and unique. The centerpieces were fantastic! My friends that really know flowers were beyond impressed and wondered how she was able to locate the flowers she got. I would highly recommend her! She really gave my wedding a beautiful look. I am so thankful for all she did.Wedding: 11/07/2015

Hiring Nadine at Studio Fleurish as our wedding florists was one of the BEST decisions we made when planning our Special Day! From our initial interview I knew she would be the right fit for us. Her passion for what she does was obvious and her easy going attitude while listening to my ideas was so refreshing and made me feel at ease. I had a vision of what I wanted and her expertise and creativity elevated that vision to the next level! She made the planning process effortless and stress free, always quick to respond to questions and flexible with any changes or additions that we asked for. Fast forward to the Big Day. Nadine made a special trip to our hotel to personally deliver my bouquet before she went to the venue to set up. Talk about service! It was the most beautiful bouquet ever! And that was just the start. The arch at our outdoor venue was breathtaking, the perfect back drop for our ceremony photos. The centerpieces were absolutely gorgeous! I walked from table to table in awe of how amazing they all looked. They were unique, expertly arranged, and the quality of the flowers could not have been better. Total perfection!! We received and continue to receive compliments on how beautiful our wedding was and that would not have been possible without Nadine. She far exceeded our expectations all while keeping within our budget. Not only would I recommend Nadine as the hands down best wedding florist, I would hire her again in a heart beat for any occasion/event that requires floral services. Her talent, passion and sincere desire to provide exceptional results will truly make any event better than you can ever dream of! Thank You Nadine, "Our Day" would not have been as incredible as it was without YOU!

I cannot say enough about Nadine. Seriously. Our venue was unique in that it was difficult to get to, very small area for ceremony with too much space for reception. Everyone had different ideas on how it should be done - very stressful - and then we brought Nadine in. She easily calmed everything down with her demeanor and knew exactly what to do. Nadine was easy to talk to and super responsive leading up to the wedding. Our worst nightmare? Rain. Nadine changed the whole layout for the reception, moving everything herself (with her team) before we'd even arrived. Did it completely seamlessly and our guests could not tell the difference. It was incredible and I have no idea what we would have done without her. I told many that in my head when I say her name, I sing it, because she totally made the wedding! As far as flowers go, her pictures say it all. They are truly stunning. All of the bouquets took our breath away and the arch was incredible! She completely captured the style that we were looking for and it was absolutely beautiful! Like I said, I cannot say enough about Nadine - she came into a very difficult disorganized last minute situation and made it perfectly beautiful.

Nadine is amazing! From the first time we met, Nadine listened carefully, asking questions about style and preference. We met once in person (due to distance) and then communicated via phone and email. The first time we met with her, she had a laptop with her suggestions based on our previous email correspondence and even brought a sample bouquet that was gorgeous! She quickly ascertained what we wanted and did not want, and guided us through the process of selecting flowers that would match our winery venue and rustic, but classic style, and flowers that were also in season and therefore in our budget. Our 100 pound Labrador was also in our wedding and Nadine made him a beautiful wreath that matched the flower girls crowns. On the day of our wedding, Nadine was remarkable. She arrived early and beautifully arranged the flowers at the ceremony site and reception. She ran down all the men for their boutonnieres and the women for their corsages. She was meticulous. When the wedding dress train clip broke and my wife's train went all over, Nadine was there with the needed pins to fix the dress and rearrange the train. She even surprised us with a beautiful centerpiece for our sweetheart table. We absolutely loved it! The flowers at our wedding were exactly what we wanted and Nadine made sure it happened within our budget. When it comes to a wedding, you want to work with vendors whom you can trust, and Studio Flourish, with their commitment to beauty and customer service, are among the most trustworthy of vendors one could find! Thank you, Nadine, SO MUCH, for making our wedding beautiful. We couldn't have it done it without you.

I don't even know where to start! Nadine is amazing, she truly cares about her client and makes them feel at ease during a stressful time such as planning a wedding. She was patient with me, understanding when a schedule conflict would occur, and she was also very conservative when it came to our budget as she knew we were moving out of state right after the wedding. My wedding was beautiful because of my wonderful flowers and arrangements. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to our special day.

Thank you so much for giving me my dreams and more. You're a sweet soul and a creative genius! Thank you! Thank you! And thank you!!

I chose Nadine for my wedding florist and I was completely BLOWN AWAY! She exceeded all of my expectations and went over and beyond what we had discussed. Nadine was always on time, prepared and touched base with me throughout the entire wedding process. When I started my wedding planning a met with two other florists to get quotes and have consultations Both were ridiculously over priced and honestly acted like they were doing me a favor even meeting with us. I was almost considering not having flowers or doing my own (oh my goodness I am soooo glad I didn't!). I called Nadine after my last bad experience and she met me the SAME DAY! Prior to actually having my wedding, I didn't think floral was a big part of it... I was completely wrong! I cant imagine how my day would have looked without her beautiful works of art and personal touches to our venues. Best thing about Nadine is that she has PASSION for what she does and you can see she truly loves it. I plan to use Nadine for any event I have in the future and can not say enough about how much I would recommend her to brides to be or anyone looking to plan a gorgeous event. This is the only vendor from my wedding I feel did such an outstanding job that I am taking the time to write reviews. This is not something I normally do which should show how fantastic she is!

Nadine is an absolute dream to work with! She made our wedding day even more beautiful than we imagined. She is so upfront and transparent with pricing, very easy and enjoyable to communicate with and is so creative and does amazing work. We first met with her just two short months before our wedding, and she talked through every detail with us to get an idea of what our style was. We didn't have a lot of experience with flowers (let alone planning a wedding!) and she made us feel very comfortable, and we trusted her completely. She took the vague ideas my husband and I gave her for the flowers and she turned it into something amazing for our wedding day! She made us the most gorgeous flower arch, centerpieces, flower crowns, boutonnieres, and bridal bouquets. She communicated with us the week before the wedding and helped us plan out what time she should arrive so the flowers made it there before the pictures were taken and it was clear that she had done this before and was a complete pro! I couldn't be a happier, more satisfied customer of Nadine's, she is INCREDIBLE and I 100% recommend her and her services! Nadine's style and flowers are on another level and she knows how to suit your own personal style.Wedding: 10/08/2015
