Designs by Tricia, Inc.    posted 9/25/2013 (updated 9/26/2013)

Even though I am working with Brides all the time in the business I am in, when it came time for my only daughters Wedding it was evident that I was in for a rude awaking. This statement pertains to the many aspects of Wedding planning that one doesn't think of. In the beginning a budget was put in place and we were not to deter from it, my daughter being the wonderful wise young lady she is just wouldn't have it any other way. We went to many Wedding shows, talked to many people, and then when it came down to Vendors we listened to people we trusted. Becky Halbreich from Dove Canyon Country Club recommend that we set up an appointment with Tricia for our flowers. This was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made. Tricia is there to help you make your Wedding Flowers part of the dream that you envisioned for your Wedding day. She listens and knows her business, she cares and knows flowers, plants, etc more than anyone I have ever known. My family comes from a horticulture background and knows about flowers, Tricia's knowledge takes this to a new level. The first time we went to Tricia's house, yes she has a complete florist in her home and loves and cares for all of her plants like her very own kids. The florist is critical in your decision making as we soon found out. Their were so many suggestions and input that Tricia provided about flowers, plants, succulents, and vases, etc. In fact I had a special charm that I wanted put on my daughters bouquet as a memory of her Grandpa's recent passing. This was done in private without the secret leaking and made the Wedding day even more special. After the Wedding Tricia even sent us pictures that she took of all the flowers. This will not mean as much to you until you have your Wedding, because you will find out that if you are like us we didn't even get to see the flowers until the room was filled with people. Each and every little detail she thinks of is just for you and her biggest concern is taking care of YOU! Tricia is personable and knowledgeable and her work speaks for herself!

Where do I even begin? Tricia was absolutely FABULOUS! I loved working with her and can never thank her enough for making my centerpieces look stunning! She is truly a talented lady who you can trust completely to make your day look amazing. Flowers make the whole day! Working with her was the best decision I could have made!

Thank you Jasmine. It was such a pleasure working with you to make all of your beautiful centerpieces. It was fun finding just the perfect shades of pinks to match both of your gorgeous wedding gowns...the white one AND the pink one. Can't wait to...

Best and sweetest florist in the OC!    posted 10/3/2013 (updated 10/5/2013)

I used Tricia for my wedding last October and I could not be happier with my decision to hire her as my wedding florist! I met her for an initial consultation in her home and she was so sweet and made me feel so comfortable. I know nothing about flowers but she was very patient about explaining the different types of flowers, what would be in season, what would get me the look I wanted for less, etc. She also offered a lot of different ideas since I didn't really have any concrete ideas of what I wanted. I explained what I was generally envisioning and showed her some pictures and she totally got it! When I saw all the bouquets and centerpieces she made for the wedding, I was shocked at how perfectly she got the look I was going for! I'm not a big flowers person, but the flowers on my wedding day were so beautiful! I was bummed that they couldn't last forever...

Another thing I loved about Tricia is that she was very mindful of my budget and her prices were very reasonable as far as wedding flowers go. My initial budget was totally unrealistic (I had no idea how much flowers cost!) but she came as close as she could and she offered some suggestions for things to eliminate in order to lessen the cost, without sacrificing the overall look. Talk about customer service and not just trying to upsell to make a buck! In an industry where it seems like it's easy to just try to oversell brides to make more money, I really appreciated this.

Lastly, I loved how quickly she responded to emails. She was always readily accessible and willing to answer emails even at 3am...I'm not even kidding. I got email responses from her really late/early! She is so committed to her clients and making sure they are happy and I loved that about her.

I HIGHLY recommend Tricia to all brides! She is the best at what she does and I loved having her as one of my vendors!

Thank you Pam for this nice review. You were such an easy bride to work with & I loved making all your wedding flowers..especially since they were purple. I loved the lighting at Seven Degrees which made the flowers look even prettier.

Thank You Kudos to Tricia    posted 10/2/2013

Tricia at Designs by Tricia did a fabulous job for our wedding in June. The flowers were just as requested and beautiful! It was a small last minute event so my Mom would be able to come before her Bone Marrow Transplant. Tricia was reasonable, flexible and did an outstanding job even with a time constraint.

I would recommend Tricia to anyone!!!

Great florist    posted 10/1/2013

I found Designs by Tricia on the Knot vendor list for flowers for my 6/23/2013 wedding. She was the first and only person we interviewed for the job. She instantly put my husband and I at ease, as we do not know flowers and had to rely on her expertise to design our wedding flowers. She stayed perfectly well within our budget and was able to create my dream flowers. She did the flowers for all of the bridal party as well as arrangements for every table. Not only was I satisfied with the work, but I had compliments for days on how great our arrangements looked. I'm a very picky person, so it's saying a lot that I was 100% satisfied with her work. I also appreciate her quick replies to my emails and her flexibility when I had an idea I wanted incorporated into the wedding. Thanks Tricia!

Simply The Best    posted 9/30/2013 (updated 9/30/2013)

Tricia was absolutely outstanding! The process of picking the perfect look and flowers for my event was such a creative and pleasant experience. The finished product was so beautiful, it was everything I could have imagined.
All of my vendors had worked with Tricia before and were happy that I had chosen her as my florist. Also, I have to mention Tricia's sweet mother, Lily, who is just as passionate about flowers herself.
I forward to having Tricia's designs for all of my special events in the future....baby shower!

Best Florist in the OC -    posted 9/30/2013

I worked with Tricia (Designs by Tricia) for both of my daughters weddings. The first one was in May 2007 and the last one was 9.21.13.
Not only does Tricia have the unique ability to truly "see" the brides vision, she is ultra professional.
My daughters are quite different in their tastes and their weddings couldn't have been more different and a true reflection of them as individuals. Tricia was able to create the PERFECT flowers for their special day.
My oldest daughter is quite traditional and wanted perfection, my youngest is a free spirit, throwing tradition to the wind and opting for a more "home grown" feel to her wedding. Tricia nailed it on both weddings and my girls LOVED all the flowers and their bouquets.
I wholeheartedly recommend Tricia. I used her for two of the most important days in my daughters lives and she produced individual and beautiful flowers for each (very different) wedding.

Amazing Experience with Tricia!    posted 9/30/2013

I searched around for a few Florists here and there, but as soon as i met Tricia I knew she was perfect for our wedding. The Flowers were absolutely gorgeous, especially all the bouquets and boutonnieres. I went into meeting Tricia really not know exactly what I wanted, I really only knew the colors and what i didn't want. She was able to pull the thoughts right out of my imagination and create the perfect center pieces, accents, and really just perfect feeling throughout my wedding. I still have pieces she created within my house now. She was extremely reasonable and I really love the fact that she would work with my budget. Her personality is amazing and she truly makes herself available to all her brides and has excellent recommendations. I would recommend Tricia at anytime.

An easy decision    posted 9/29/2013

Tricia was great during the process of planning our floral designs for our wedding. She was very professional and kept in contact with questions, concerns and options. She was very generous with her time and made us feel that she really cared about the look of everything. We were so pleased to see the final look of it all on the day of. It was beautiful and the flowers kept well even on such a hot day. It was a very personal experience due to the fact that she works out of her home. You can tell just how much she loves what she does and cares for her clients. I would highly recommend Tricia!

Tricia is AMAZING!!!    posted 9/29/2013

I was searching for a florist for my wedding for a few weeks before I found Tricia on Wedding Wire. I knew absolutely nothing about flowers, but that was not a problem because Tricia is such an expert! My husband and I met with her and discussed the colors of our wedding and what we had in mind; we wanted something soft, romantic, and a little vintage looking. Tricia was able to show us pictures of flowers from various weddings she had done over the years, which was more than helpful.

When our wedding day arrived, I was so eager to see how everything turned out. The flowers were even better than I imagined and everyone loved them! I would recommend Designs by Tricia to anyone and everyone getting married. She is personable, friendly, knowledgeable, and listens to what you want! Tricia is the best and made my wedding look beautiful!!

Beautiful flowers for my wedding    posted 9/26/2013 (updated 9/26/2013)

Tricia was fantastic! I was very happy with all the flowers for my wedding: alter pieces, bouquets, reception, sweetheart table, boutineers, aisle flowers, sign in table..etc.. She worked with me as I ironed out what flowers and colors to use and she gave me helpful info in the process about flowers I was considering. She was super sweet and her love for her work and her talent was obvious! So happy I went with her for my flowers because they are such a huge part for creating beauty of my wedding day!

Wonderful Wedding Florist!    posted 9/25/2013 (updated 9/26/2013)

I found Tricia recommended here on The Knot, and then it turned out she was the preferred vendor for our wedding venue and does their flowers weekly. Loved her website so we went to meet her and she was just great! Only neede one appointment, she understood exactly what I wanted and totally customized a floral arrangement for our wedding arch too! When I arrived at the venue to get ready everything was already set and BEAUTIFUL!! Best part was that we took some of the centerpieces home and they lasted another 2 weeks looking great in the house! Tricia was great, so thoughtful and I would Definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a florist!

Amazing Quality & Affordable    posted 8/13/2013 (updated 9/29/2013)

Tricia did an amazing job with my wedding. From the beginning she was able to help me verbalize my ideas and guide me through the entire process. Tricia was able to accommodate my requests and really worked with me so that I could have everything I wanted for my big day while sticking with the budget. She showed her true colors by going above and beyond! All of the flowers I ordered were even more beautifully arranged than I imagined. It was such a relief to be worry-free with the flowers. My wedding was incredible! Thank you for helping to make my big day everything I imagined and more Tricia. For those of you who are still deciding on your flower vendor know that you will be in good hands with Tricia for your special day!

Absolutely Stunning Work    posted 7/7/2013

Tricia is so great! I was a little lost in the floral department and she helped me create the perfect ambience for our wedding. There were so many compliments and the quality of flowers she used were supreme! The bridal bouquet was the best part! It was so romantic and smelled so wonderfully! She is by far the best vendor I had for our wedding! Professional, kind, and so understanding of the wedding day stress.

Amazing, Talented, Set the tone of the entire wedd    posted 11/5/2012

Tricia is simply the most amazing florist - florist doesn't even cover it because she is so much more. Tricia was able to bring my ideas to life. She worked with me for over a year planning and creating the perfect arrangements. I am a VERY detailed person and was concerned with every design detail but Tricia exceeded all my expectations. Not only is she amazing at what she does but she genuinely cares and goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. She has a unique gift for designing and working with flowers and it is clear that she truly loves what she does! Her prices are extremely reasonable, her ideas are brilliant, work is excellent and she is incredible.

Perfect Flowers for the Perfect Wedding    posted 11/5/2012

Every woman knows that her wedding day is the most memorable day of her life. A bride to be has to confident in the people around her to make her vision into reality, and Tricia by far fell into this category.

She opened her home to my mother and me; With a glass of champagne the fun times began as we choose the flowers and discussed what I truly envisioned my day to be. The flowers set the tone and she had ideas, photos and my best interest at heart.

Tricia opens her home and makes you feel warm and comfortable as though you are a close friend of the family rather than just merely a client. The flowers were beautiful and smelled amazing! My guest expressed nothing but compliments on Tricia's Design. My husband and I were so blessed to have her do these beautiful arrangements for our wedding. Tricia has a big heart and passion as her floral arrangements and designs reflect these essences. She has my top recommendations (which not all of my vendors received for their performance on my wedding day) for any and all of my friends in the area when their times come to be married.
