I’m April of April Flowers, and my story is one of love for all things flowery, all things weddings and all things lovely. I started off as a Cal Poly SLO student studying event design and planning while working at a very sweet little flower shop. When I graduated and it was time to move on, I had an amazing opportunity to buy that sweet little flower shop and make it my own. My love for flowers was paired with my love for weddings and a business that has been better than I could have ever imagined was born. As my wedding business grew and my husband and I decided to start a family I decided to sell that sweet little flower shop and focus 100% on weddings.
Our philosophy is simple: beautiful blooms, incredible quality and service worth writing home about. Our designs are distinctive, creative, and fresh. Our passion is to use unique and surprising blooms, textures and elements.
I hope you LOVE looking thru our work and leave feeling inspired.
LOVED working with April! Not only is she incredibly talented and creative, she remained organized and professional throughout our planning process. She was always up for brainstorming and developing ideas together, a process that I really appreciated as I had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted but she helped me put that vision into words.
We met once in person when I was in town to plan the wedding and it was in that meeting that I knew I could place my trust and confidence in her ability to execute our vision. She did an amazing job — guests commented on the floral arrangements throughout the wedding and still do whenever they take a look at the images from our wedding day.
April also helped us to hang our ceremony decor — a tough project that she accomplished beautifully! She was up front with me from the beginning and let me know that some of the blooms that I wanted — ranunculas, specifically — might not be available in October. But, she managed to make it happen and created the most gorgeous bouquets, filled with flowers, berries, and herbs. And, did I mention that she's super on-top-of-it when it comes to email communication? Gotta love that when you're planning a wedding from 3,000 miles away.
I know I'm subjective (after all, it was my wedding) but trust me when I say that selecting April Flowers was one of the best choices we made for our wedding.
We absolutely LOVED April and she did an incredible job doing the flowers for our wedding. She is kind, personable, and it is obvious she loves what she does. We enjoyed meeting with her to discuss our ideas and she was great at helping us put together what we wanted and stay in our budget. We were so blessed to have her helping us and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!
Since I wasn't local in the area that I was planning my wedding and not able to meet with all of my vendors before the actual big day, I was pretty skeptical about how my flowers would turn out. But, after my first conversation with April, I knew she got my vision and once I saw all of the GORGEOUS bouquets, arrangements and boutonnieres she created on my wedding day, I was SO over the moon thrilled with her work. She nailed it, without ever meeting me or my fiance, she totally got what we wanted. We had a rustic, vintage, sustainable and food focused wedding (confusing right?!), and she did an amazing job. For instance, she put kale and other flowers in our ceremony arrangements. I felt so comfortable and confident in April after our phone conversations that I told her to just use whatever she felt looked good and was the best in-season and she went beyond our expectations with her creativity. And, to top it off, April is extremely professional and offers reasonable prices. I will highly recommend her to anyone looking for a florist in the SLO area!
