"I'm so glad that we hired Sara for our wedding! Everything turned out beautiful.
First, when you submit a request for a consultation on her website it notifies you it'll be a 48-72 hour turnaround which is great because it sets the expectations of when to expect to hear back. She spent way more time than I expected with me for our initial consultation, it was very personal and she legitimately seemed interested in who we are as a couple and what our expectations were.
Throughout the entire wedding planning process Sara was fantastic to work with, we updated our order at least 3x...every time she made the necessary changes without arguing (I had some fun potential vendors I looked at lol) and when I asked for her opinion on some of the changes she had good suggestions that made sense for us. She truly cares about her clients and that's very clear throughout the entire process, especially once you see your wedding flowers!
Day of, she showed up an hour early to drop off our personals which was fantastic because that meant our photographer had an extra hour or so with these florals than expected! Sara also set up our ceremony and reception site (yup we had 3 locations...), all of which looked beautiful! My only complaint is that I only had one wedding to plan, so now I have to find an excuse to hire her again :P
If you're in the market for a florist, without a doubt I'd highly recommend hiring Sara with Sweet Stems! You will not be disappointed :)"

"We hired Sara for our June 2017 wedding in Temecula. From start to finish she was nothing short of amazing. She was very thorough during our consultation showing us each flower that would be in season and my color scheme. Flowers were one of the most important things for me for our big day, so seeing everything come together on our big day was so wonderful. She honestly made my wedding dreams come true, and on our wedding day the hanging floral wreaths made me so happy while dancing beneath them."
"Sara was amazing from the start. Not being from CA I had no idea how much to expect when looking for a florist, any vendor at that. I came across Sweet Stems and fell absolutely in love with her work. I was looking for the bohemian style but had no idea what type of flowers I wanted besides eucalyptus. Out of the 5 florists that I spoke with, Sara was the only one who offered to meet with us to talk details before we even put money down. She spent a good hour with us in a Sunday afternoon and there was no looking back. She talked and worked with me through our budget and helped me with narrowing down in making suggestions how. We stayed I contact consistently until day of wedding. The day of the wedding I was absolutely amazed at what Sara created for us. Everything we could every imagine. She is flexible, reliable, amazing in her work and a sweet heart.
Thanks so much in helping create the wedding of my dreams, Sara!!"

"Sara has gone above and beyond all my expectations. I wanted a flower crown for a photoshoot that I was going to be in, and she captured everything that I wanted. Her communication with me, as well as the photographer, really made the ordering easy and I was ecstatic that the flower crown was even better than what I was looking at from Pinterest. Shout out to the best florist in Southern California as well as the best photographer for making the pictures from the photoshoot beautiful, as well as making this day memorable. Finding somebody that makes transactions such as these so stress free is such a blessing. I plan on using Sara for my upcoming wedding this June, and I'm sure that with her help, my dream wedding will come to life."
