"I was turned onto Emblem Flowers through my wedding planners at TwoFold LA. I was interested in using Emblem after reviewing their Instagram account but was set on hiring after I met with Charmain, the founder. When I say hiring Emblem Flowers was the best decision I made during the planning process, I really mean it. Charmain is a treat to work with. She understands the aesthetic of the bride on both a holistic and intuitive level and delivered a range of florals that took my breath away, Emblem Flowers are on top of their work; they are on time, they care. The day before my wedding, we needed an add-on that was near impossible - cover a firescape with purple standing flowers. The outcome was unbelievable."

"My husband and I hit the florist jackpot with Charmain and her team at Emblem Flowers! Finding amazing vendors that truly understand your vision is much trickier than expected, and the search can be a lot more stressful than finding the right dress. It's easy to be overwhelmed with options in a heavily saturated market, and it's even easier to surpass a budget you're comfortable with when it comes to fine-tuning all of the details for your day. Charmain put all of our floral decor worries to rest. She is incredibly kind, professional, thorough, and extremely determined to make your day look exactly how you envision while staying on your target budget. She is a creative powerhouse with a beautiful eye for design and ability to execute styles and colors in ways that look super elegant, natural and effortless (Emblem's website and Instagram page consistently show proof of this!). We felt so confident in Charmain after our first meeting that, after discussing a few ideas, we gave her free range to create centerpieces and arrangements that she felt would compliment every aspect of our wedding. Best decision we could've made, as Charmain and her team FAR exceeded our expectations and our guests still talk about how beautiful everything looks and tied together! We can't express enough how lucky we feel to have had Emblem Flowers work with us on our wedding day, and how much of a relief it was to have one less thing to worry about! :) There's no question that we will use them for all of our future parties, and hope you're able to work with this amazing team as well!"

“We really hit it off with Charmain from our first meeting - she understood our vision: organic florals that "look like they've always been there". Charmain went above and beyond, sourcing sample of the florals we requested to help us make a decision against using those florals (they would've died in the summer heat) -- from there we went back to the drawing board and worked on a new vision that Charmain and her team really brought to life on the day of the wedding. She also was extremely fair with her pricing and helped us stay within our budget. Can't recommend her enough!”
“Charmain was an absolute dream! She and her team flawlessly executed my vision for wedding flowers and worked hard to get flowers I loved that were out of season and not readily available. Our guests couldn't stop complimenting her arrangements. We got so much amazing feedback! Charmain was so sweet, flexible and fun to work with. I couldn't imagine doing my wedding without her! I can't recommend her enough.”
"Charmain was a delight to work with. Her work is beautiful and thoughtful. Service was excellent and communication was spot on. Our wedding florals were absolutely gorgeous and perfect!"
"Blown away, Charmain!"
"I LOVED working with Charmain. She was one of my favorites to work with for my wedding. She has great vision and it's so much fun to brainstorm with her because she has great suggestions that I wouldn't have come up with on my own (even after a ton of research online!). I trust her judgement because she takes the time to get to know me, my style preferences, and budget. The day of our wedding we had a small snafu (not her fault) and no one noticed except for us. She's also just a genuinely nice person and on top of her game. And her aesthetic is definitely on point, and nailed the colors and flowers I was seeking. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking to make their special day come alive through florals."
"I am still in awe of the beauty that Charmain created for our wedding! From my first meeting wth Charmain it was clear that she was not only talented, but also extremely professional, detailed, and determined to bring my ideas to life. I enjoyed collaborating with Charmain on the vision for my wedding and greatly appreciated the amount of time she spent with me during the planning process discussing everything down to the specific contents of each arrangement - I was a particular bride and she worked with me through it all! On my wedding day, the florals Charmain and her team created took my breath away - and my husband's too! She surpassed my (very high) expectations and truly created works of art. The florals were stunning, her team was kind, and my guests are still talking about our flowers. We couldn't be happier!"
"Your flowers were perfect! You're the best Charmain! You went above and beyond with this arch! Thank you!"
"Still in love with the most beautiful bouquet a girl could ask for!!!"
"Just wanted to let you know that I loved the flowers. The urn in the foyer was amazing. Thanks so much Charmain!"
"Seriously, off the charts beautiful and perfect! Loved loved loved them!"

"Thanks Charmain! Your flowers were amazing." || Paul Heintz
"Phenomenal Charmain! Everything was perfect!" || Becky Heintz"
"Thank you so much for my wedding florals. I had a vision of the flowers would look and you not only met my expectations to a tee, you exceeded them. The shades of my bouquet were exactly what I had asked for and what I had shown you in my inspiration photos. I was stunned when I saw my bouquet because it was so perfect. The bridesmaids bouquets were so full and beautiful. Not only was everything beautiful, you managed to pull all this off on Valentine's Day weekend when all other florists wouldn't even take on the task! Thanks so much for your hard work and I would recommend you to any future brides!"
"It was such a pleasure to work with Charmain of Emblem Flowers as our wedding florist. First and foremost, her floral designs are beautiful. Charmain plays with movement and shape in a way that creates artistic centerpieces where the flowers look as though they are growing out of the pedestal reaching towards the sun. She also has an eye for using contrasting colors and textures to bring great depth and visual interest to her pieces. Charmain asked us questions and sent us Pinterest pins to determine what we wanted. She gave me advice when I asked her about other wedding design aspects and how they would look with her florals. She and her assistant did an amazing job setting up on our wedding day. There was a lot of wind at the beach and she spent a tremendous amount of time and effort to make sure our arbor, draping, vines and flowers were secure enough to withstand the wind. Our ceremony space looked beautiful and the wind blowing through the draping looked so lovely. We were thrilled that Charmain was able to be our florist." -Liz Hoyt
"Charmain understood the vision we had for our wedding. She created vibrant, seasonal arrangements with gorgeous lace and greenery that totally suited our beach wedding style. She is friendly, responds quickly to questions and goes out of her way to respond to her clients' needs. Our flowers were complimented many times on our wedding day-by onlookers, bridesmaids, other friends and family members. Everyone thought they were incredibly beautiful! And we agreed." -Angela Williams Gorrell
"I'm back from my honeymoon and I wanted to take a minute to thank you for my amazing florals at our wedding. My bouquet was to die for!!! You pulled a rabbit out of hat with the florals for the ceremony. It was a crazy day but you made it work. I received MULTIPLE comments on the centerpieces, the bouquets, everything. Our guests were blown away by your work. "Best flowers I've ever seen at a wedding!" is what I heard. Thank you again and again." -Jaime Bigelow
"Thank you! The flowers were perfect and EXACTLY what I wanted!!" -Kristin Henry
"Charmain is awesome. I had no idea what I wanted for my wedding flowers, but after a conversation about my needs, it seems like she knew exactly what I wanted. I gave her free reign to do whatever she felt like would look nice. This means a lot, since I am a person who works in the legal profession and it's very rare that I lay this much trust on a person. When I saw my flowers, they were more than beautiful! I almost cried when I saw how beautiful they were. Not only that, she also helped me with my reception flowers. They were gorgeous. I had a lot of people come up to me to compliment me." -Esther Lin
"Hi Charmain! Thank YOU for everything you did. It was SO STUNNING and everyone could not stop talking about the florals. My parents said they loved meeting you!" -Kelly Wells
"Didn't think I could be more obsessed with my bouquet until I saw this pic!" -Rebecca Guerra
“First, thank you so much for today. While approaching this event with professionalism, you also were very approachable and responsive. I like that and appreciated it very much. Everything went like clock work, which it needed to do. Where to start. I don’t think there was one person that wasn’t stopped dead in their tracks when they got to the door of the wine room. The most important person, Natalie, was blown away. She and her mother love flowers and you may have new clients in them both. The scent of the roses, I don’t think anyone expected that. So many roses today do not smell at all. With the flowers, we were able to transform that room into a beautiful space for a baby shower. Even I was not convinced that could happen. You knocked it out of the park. People were lined up to take your flowers home. I was giving your name out not only to shower attendees, but people waiting for their cars from valet were asking who did the flowers! I gave your name to them as well. Proof that you did a fabulous job. It was so wonderful to work with you and I hope we do so again in the near future. Thank you so very much.” -Cindy Vail
