    Yvonne went above and beyond in every way to make our decor vision come to life. She was incredibly prompt in all responses, flexible with the innumerable times that I changed my mind about this or that, and had amazing recommendations to elevate our wedding spaces. She accommodated a welcome event the night before with lovely cocktail vases. She attended our walk-throughs with the Langham staff and our planner so everyone was on the same page. It gave us peace of mind to know that she has amazing attention to detail and is so passionate about her art. She constructed the most magnificent Manzanita tree I have ever seen for our entrance table. It was a last-minute request on my part, and of course, she made it happen. The uplighting was elegant. The crushed velvet aisle runner was BEAUTIFUL. Our forever ring of greenery was a lush, elegant statement piece. The table arrangements were stunning and of the exact density of flowers and greenery that I had requested. Thank you YJDecorating for making our perfect day even more magical!

    I did not want to spend a lot on florist and picked a naturally beautiful venue that did not require tons of decor. When I had the consultation with Yvonne, I was impressed by her professionalism and familiarity with her portfolio as well as the quality of their rental items. As another reviewer mentioned, she also respected my budget, unlike another florist who proposed floral centerpieces even though I requested rental items (geometric lanterns). Yvonne also offered to participate in final walk-through and a final in-person meeting despite our relatively low budget. I did not get to talk a lot with Lisa, the day-of lead, but everything looked beautiful. The florist team seemed to work well with the caterer in set-up and flipping the room. I definitely recommend YJDecorating.

    If you have not found a florist, look no further! Yvonne [of YJDecorating Inc.] was amazing to work with. Unlike other florists we contacted, the responsiveness and reasonable pricing stood out. Her professionalism, adaptability, and artistic eye for creating beautiful spaces was evident from our initial interaction. Her commitment to understanding our vision was apparent and she truly translated it into reality. After reviewing our pictures/examples, she outlined a comprehensive plan and promptly provided a transparent cost breakdown. Throughout the process, Yvonne’s passion and excitement for her craft was clear. Collaborating directly with us, she organized zoom consultations to share updates and discuss ideas. What impressed us most was the ability to pull up examples from her portfolio live as we were chatting to show a type of flower, example, or overall idea. This gave insight to her work and versatility. Even joining during a site visit, the thoroughness and perspective was invaluable. On the day of our event, Yvonne and her team arrived early and worked seamlessly with other vendors. Their dedication and focus on execution transformed the spaces to create a stunning evening. As guests arrived it set the tone and her work did not disappoint. We could not have made a better choice. Working with Yvonne was an absolute pleasure. She is extremely personable, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a florist who truly knows their craft.

    Yvonne was amazing throughout my wedding planning process. She made it to my walk-through appointment, did my draping as well and provided me with a beautiful wedding color palette for flowers and decor. She took my vision of my preferred color palette like ice blue and a bright color and made all the decor beautiful. I couldn't believe they were real flowers. I also was on a budget and she took care to make me comfortable with whatever I chose. She coordinated with my many vendors to ensure great detail for my wedding. She also was very sensitive to a cultural wedding and provided me with candles as well as recommend petals for our altar (for a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony). I can't recommend her enough!
