Where do I begin to sing the praises of Suzanne M. Smith Designs!? I mean, seriously!?From the first meeting to my wedding day, Suzanne was not only the consummate professional- super knowledgeable, beyond friendly, immensely thorough, and absolutely COMMITTED to staying on budget, she was an integral and irreplaceable part of all of our wedding day 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. Now let's talk about the flowers- WOW! The quality of the flowers and other design accents were phenomenal! The special details she included that added a personal touch made all the difference. Everyone in our wedding party looked so beautiful holding or wearing her designs and our centerpieces were literally being fought over by the end of the evening. I truly could not be happier with how everything turned out. She even went above and beyond in adding other decorative floral touches on things that weren't part of what I paid for! In regards to vision, she will take your dream and figure out a way to make it work all without passing on any of the extra charges or ridiculous fees 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 in a way that is just astounding. Truth be told, I'm not much of a 'flower' girl and was even considering scrapping flowers for our wedding in lieu of something cheaper. I am SO glad I didn't- the flowers truly added so much of the whimsy and romanticism I was hoping to emanate on our wedding day. What Suzanne did for us was beyond even our wildest dreams and we will be thankful to her for years and years to come. As if all of this wasn't enough, there is yet another reason we love Suzanne so much. Sometimes in this life, 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 hold in their hearts for what they do. Suzanne is one of those people. As the wedding planning began to wind down and the big day drew nearer, I began to realize our little project was ending and was a bit wistful and nostalgic as I knew it meant our daily design emails would cease. This is a testament to just 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 and taxing 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, so fun, and so memorable. We love you!-The Fightsest. 10.20.2012
Our wish for an Eco Friendly and Organic wedding was a dream come true with Suzanne.From the first meeting to the wedding day everything was handled beautifully.Meetings and fun design sessions for all the fine details. Locating Organic Peonies, roses and Lavender and vegies to complete our vision for the wedding. Suzanne was By far the best Vendor we had for our wedding day. We highly recomend Suzanne and her team for a smooth and beautiful wedding experience.
I can't believe there are so few reviews about Suzanne on Yelp. I mean she is AMAZING! Not only is she a great and talented floral designer, she is also an amazing person overall. I had a few meetings with her regarding my wedding, and each meeting would last almost 2hrs because I had so much fun chatting with her! She has so many stories and ideas about flowers and designs, you can just tell how talented and passionate she is about what she does. Suzanne did flower arrangements for my wedding ceremony as well as my bouquets and reception centerpieces. I wanted most of my flowers to be red roses, which I had no idea were so pricey! But Suzanne was able to get what I wanted at a price I was comfortable with (it did go over a couple hundred dollars, but the flowers were def worth it). All of the flowers were absolutely gorgeous, and I got so many compliments from my bridal party and wedding guests. You can't go wrong with Suzanne!Gi & Jay Roman- Grand Tradition-Fallbrook
