Jenifer and her team went above and beyond on our wedding flowers. They were honestly the most beautiful (and BIGGEST) arrangements we have ever seen. All of our guests, especially both of our mothers (who love flowers and can appreciate it) were enamored by the beauty of our wedding flowers. People are still talking about our wedding centerpieces! My husband and I met with 4 different florists before we found Jenifer. She was definitely worth the wait. From the get-go, she understood my vision and the look I wanted to achieve. She was so sweet, friendly, and genuinely cared about what I wanted and how I wanted it to look. She worked around our budget, and offered alternatives to help us save money without compromising on the look that we were aiming for. She genuinely cares about her clients, and isn't out to make money off of you. Throughout the process, she would check in with me and was so accommodating to all of the moving pieces that we had in mind for our wedding. My husband and I sourced a lot of our own decorations and furniture pieces, and she was able to help set up our sweetheart bench and table (since our venue didn't allow us to deliver it the night before). On the wedding day, there are no words to capture how beautiful the flowers were. My bouquet was amazing and huge, I had to hold it with two hands because one hand was impossible and it started to hurt. She used the most amazing flowers (peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, dahlias, veronicas, Italian ruscus, etc). My bridesmaids' bouquets were equally as gorgeous and also so big! I swear the bridesmaids' bouquets are the same size as other florists' bridal bouquet, and my bouquet is the same size as other florists' centerpieces. Let's be honest here, I'm not a crier - but when I saw the flowers lining the main aisle of our church ceremony - I shed the ugliest happy tears. They were HUGE! When we got to the reception venue, her flowers helped transformed an already beautiful space into a venue that dreams are made of. It was magical!! From the moment we got engaged, my husband and I knew that flowers had to be a critical part in our wedding. Flowers tie together the entire look, flowers transform spaces, and flowers get the most attention. So rest assured in knowing that you are making the best decision by booking with Jen. She will not disappoint you, and she will exceed your expectations and give you everything you want and more. She is honest, she is affordable, she will work with any budget, and she has impeccable taste. What more can you ask for?-Kat D.
I've been nervous to write this review, because I honestly don't think anything I write would do it justice. I originally booked Peonies and Petals for my flowers for my wedding, but I ended up also using them for my rentals. Mostly because Jenifer is the BEST. I'm so glad I did. Jenifer took the reigns making sure each table, bouquet, and arrangement made a statement. She took my timid ideas and made them bold, and gave me the confidence to not stress about it. Jenifer is an artist, and it's very obvious when you look at how she uses flowers. Our moms were thrilled at their corsages: they were big and intricate and beautiful and looked like something straight out of Pinterest, and my bouquet was the most beautiful thing I'd probably ever seen. I will attach photos when I have them back. It made sense to have her also handle the rentals, because she was able to create a whole package. Her prices for rentals are also really, really good for Orange County, especially compared to places like Signature Rentals. Jenifer also isn't afraid to give her opinion on things, which is really great when you're planning an event. She'll let you know if you have an idea that might not look great in reality, and then help you pick alternatives that will work. I was so afraid to use red in my wedding because I thought it would clash with light blue, even though red roses are my favorite flower. She made it work, and recommended that I also incorporate richer burgundy colors with the red to make it really pop. I can't believe I originally asked for "simple blush bouquets." I am SO happy that Jenifer spoke up and made her own recommendations. Everyone at my wedding commented on how beautiful the flowers are. Aside from being a flower goddess, Jenifer is also one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. She's always finding new ways to give back to her community, whether that's serving underprivileged families in her area or volunteering with special needs students. She inspires me to be a better person, and her joy for life is contagious. If you want your event to look like it belongs in a magazine, book her. -Liz B.
Where do I begin with Jenifer from Peonies & Petals. She is hands down the best investment we could have possibly chosen to do the flower arrangements for our wedding. From our very first consultation with Jennifer, I knew she was the one I wanted to book for my wedding and her work speaks volume about her talent. I don't know what we would have done without Jennifer there to help guide us through our wedding even though she wasn't our wedding coordinator; she really helped us out with all the details to make it a very memorable day that I will never forget. She is very detailed and a perfectionist which I love. Our flowers were beyond beautiful with high and short flower displays, which had everyone from family and friends complimenting us on our flowers. Jennifer even did my sweetheart table, which looked so amazing. She really did complete the vision I had for my wedding and executed it beyond what I could have envisioned. She made our wedding so beautiful and memorable and I want to thank you Jennifer from the bottom of my heart for making this picky bride beyond happy on her wedding day. Jennifer from Peonies & Petals exceeded our expectation and their team really nailed it. I am a really picky bride so I knew I had to find a florist who could bring my vision to life. -Cindy V.
I can't say enough great things about Jenifer and her team at Peonies & Petals. She truly brought my vision to life - I still dream about the gorgeous flower garland that overflowed our fountain backdrop. I had a vague idea of what I wanted when we first met (bits and pieces of ideas,really) but you know Jenifer is a true artist and professional when she can take those fragments and turn them into a fully flushed masterpiece. The level of attention and detail that she puts into her arrangements and centerpieces is just amazing. The best part is that she is a great person to work with - accommodating, knowledgeable, honest, and creative. So many of my wedding guests raved about the flowers. Even my husband fell in love with how she setup the sweetheart table and still talks about it to this day! I would hire Peonies & Petals again in a heartbeat - I just have to find another reason for a big party. Thanks again Jenifer! -Kim P.
Jenifer is wonderful to work with, she has everything you need for your wedding decor and has referrals for other vendors as well. She goes beyond to make sure it is just how you envision your wedding. You can trust her and her team to be there to set up everything as planned. She also did a great job collaborating with my wedding planner. Thank you Jenifer for putting up with the stressed out brides! -Annie C.
Jennifer went above and beyond for our wedding ..she really hooked it up ...both the ceremony and reception.. Friends and family were in shock with how great the places look. If you need the floral hookup don't pass up on her. -David D.
Jenifer and her talented Peonies & Petals Designs team did such a beautiful job for our wedding. The flowers came out better then I had imagine they were fresh and designed beautifully. The arrangements were full and fresh she definitely didn't skimp on the flowers/roses. She is very friendly to work with, professional, punctual on returning calls, emails, and meetings which made the process easy. We laugh and shared lots of ideas over coffee dates many times and have become great friends. If you are searching for a florist for your next party or event I highly recommend PEONIES & PETALS DESIGNS call Jenifer. You won't be disappointed. -Lisa T.
Okay.. this is long over due. But truly deserves a review. My experience with Jenifer was positive from beginning to end. She responds quickly and is very straight forward about her prices. She's very honest and willing to work with your budget and vision. Her ability to go above and beyond with my wedding flowers were out of this world. I absolutely love them. The flowers were delivered and set up in a timely manner. I love my bouquet! It's my wallpaper on my phone. She's extremely hard working and sacrifices a lot for this business. You can tell her passion for this type of creative work and the wedding industry is strong. She has an eye for knowing what is tasteful, classy, delicate and beautiful. The quality of work delivered was wonderful. Her excitement can come across strong...but that's what a passionate person looks like. I would recommend her again and again. -Van N.
I recently got married in April and had Jennifer be my florist for my wedding. First off, the centerpieces turned out amazing!! I was stuck on the tall centerpieces because I thought it would look nicer and stand out more which it definitely did. I had 20 tables so I did 8 tall centerpieces and 12 small ones which I thought looked nice and was more affordable. I planned my wedding in January 2017 last minute and was in urgent need of a good florist and called Jenn and thank goodness she was available to be my florist for my wedding day in April. We met up once to talk about what I wanted and from there it went very smoothly. I told her the color theme I wanted my flowers to be and just trusted her to make it look beautiful and it was so beautiful on my wedding day! She also decorated my wedding cake and sweetheart table which turned out so nice as well! I got lots of compliments on the flower arrangements. She was very easy to contact if you have any questions as well which is a huge plus. Jenn and her team did a great job with the flowers and I would highly recommend her! -Julie N.
Thank you to Jenifer and the Peonies and Petals team for being the florist for our wedding! Your centerpieces were a big hit with our guests. She went to several different places to get my flowers for the best price to help us stay in budget. I was referred to her by a friend who is also using her for wedding. Jenifer is very friendly and sweet. She went above and beyond with our wedding by getting us in touch with other vendors to make our day extra special. -Thy N.
I just recently hired Jenifer to be my florist for my wedding. I'm not much of a flower person, so I wasn't entirely sure on what I wanted for my wedding. She's very professional and straight to the point. She gave me a lot of different flower ideas to chose from and I was able to quickly decide on what I liked for my wedding. Her prices are very reasonable as well! I didn't want to spend to much on flowers, but I paid around $400 for 6 boutonnière , & 3 bouquets. On my wedding day, her assistant came to my room and dropped off all the flowers explaining which flower set is for which. Honestly such beautiful flowers! The coral flowers she picked matched my bridesmaids dress perfectly! I would highly recommend! -Cheyenne A.
Jenifer was amazing to work with. She is super knowledgeable and helpful with what I had imagine for florals for my wedding. I found pictures similar to what I wanted (nothing quite exactly what I imagined), and she patiently listened to the changes I wanted from the pictures and everything turned out better than I imagined! I found out after the wedding that there were several unplanned "situations" that came up, and Jenifer and her team took care of them for me! The finished arch and center pieces were extremely popular with our guests. People were lining up to take pictures with the arch! -Lisa V.
Finally has the time to write a formal "thank you" for the beautiful flowers on our wedding. We loved everything about it and we received so many compliments from our guests. You really made this bride happy. Jenifer you did great work. -Lea H.
Working with Jen and the Peonies and Petals team was such an easy breeze, she was able to perfectly match the flowers to my personality and what I was hoping for my wedding - and surpassed it! Not only were they beautiful but Jen was very negotiable with pricing and very accommodating, and available for any changes or recommendations I had. I am referring her to all my friends, because you cannot get a better /sweeter florist! Thank you so much Jen - will be singing your praises to everyone! -Christina N.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to Jenifer! She is an amazing florist! I had a peacock themed wedding and she out shined herself! She arranged flowers for our tea ceremony as well as the golf course. Our ceremony was so elaborate and her choices in flowers made my color palette greatly stand out! Every time I look at pictures from the ceremony it makes me want to relive that moment! I know that she is truly passionate about making a brides vision come true and will go above and beyond for you. I trusted her with my vision and she truly delivered. Recently she also did a couple of flower arrangements for a baby shower for one of my girlfriends and made her a super cute halo! We all loved it! My favorite part was seeing how happy my friend was when she received the flowers! -Tracy P.
Jenifer and Peonies and Petals are the best! I had the hardest time looking for a florist and was lucky enough that Jen was recommended to me by a friend. She was easy to talk to and responds quickly through emails or texts. When I first met her, I thought I was just booking a florist but I walked away with everything! She can be your florist, furniture rental, designer and more! She will gladly give you her expert opinion on what looks best or what will look good together if you ask her. We planned everything carefully and had an invoice laying out all the details of the wedding so nothing is forgotten. She will also work around your budget and has many ideas on how to stretch your money. On the day of wedding, the team finished set up early. They even stayed after ceremony so they can move the flowers from ceremony to reception area! My husband and I are really happy with the services we have received from Peonies and Petals and would recommend her to anyone needing any floral services! -Dianne B.
I do not have an artistic bone in me so it really was God sent that Jenifer was my florist. First off, my budget for the flowers was small since I am a student and I was really scared that due to this my flowers would be cheap looking. Jenifer reassured me that "This is a wedding not a mother's day bouquet, you'll get wedding flowers." She worked her magic with my budget and my flowers turned out more beautiful than I had even imagined. I highly recommend Jenifer because not only is she talented, she is very honest and considerate. She holds herself up to a high standard and would not screw you over. Also during the ceremony she took so many pictures of us and sent it to us. This includes pictures of all the flowers, the reception ballroom, the bridal party, a video of me walking down the aisle...etc. She went above and beyond and I absolutely loved her and would hire her again without hesitation! -Kimmy N.
Jenifer designed the flowers for my outdoor wedding ceremony and traditional Vietnamese reception on 4/13/14. I had envisioned a natural elegance for my wedding of mostly greens, creams, and browns. She asked me to send her photos of what I liked and worked with me to ensure that I was happy with the colors and designs, and even made a centerpiece for the mock up at the reception venue. Any changes made due to seasonal flowers and their availability, she made sure to let me know first and ask if it was okay. Jenifer and her team showed up on time to set up for both the outdoor ceremony and reception and everything was beautiful! She made professional suggestions on flower placement on my wedding cake and it looked even better than what I had originally picked out. I was very pleased with her work and highly recommend her services for any bride who wants their vision done right. I added photos of the flowers Jenifer designed for my wedding. -Nancy N.

I was very happy with the service I received. Jenifer went above and behind what I expected. She gives her all to you and will not let you down. Everything turned out beautiful. Her ideas are very creative and can make any vision you have come true. To this day I still go to her for all my arrangements. -Marlena
Jenifer is awesome to work with! She will listen to what you want in your floral designs, but will give you her input on what would work best for your wedding and the designs. She wants your wedding to look absolutely perfect within your budget. She is creative and is very detailed oriented in her work. You won't regret hiring her as your florist!! -Anonymous
