Emmanuel was amazing! Emmanuel is the kind of person you dream about working with for your wedding. Not only is he extremely personable, down to earth, friendly and fun. He has an amazing attention-to-detail. He is very professional and easy to follow. When I met with Emmanuel for the first time, he listened to me thoroughly. His imagination is awesome as he provided me with wonderful ideas. To my surprise he is also a wedding planner. After talking to him, I knew that Emmanuel was the person I was looking for to do my wedding decorations, bouquets, ect. In addition, I ended hiring him as my wedding planner as well. He really helped to stay focus and in budget. Emmanuel prices were also extremely reasonable especially considering the level of fantastic service, dedication and professionalism that he gives to his clients. In can tell you that my bouquet as well as the bridesmaids was gorgeous. Every table arrangement including the cake table and ceremony decorations were beautifully done. My wedding looked so romantic with every detail and flowers arrangements he did. Every invitee had something to say about how beautifully the decorations were as well as his professionalism on the day of the wedding. I must say that the special design with petals that he did on top of the ceremony aisle runner was simply stunning. Emmanuel was always available or responded to my emails and phone calls right away. I would work with him again or any future events. Thank you for your help in making our wedding wonderful, beautiful, romantic, and stunning day. If you need a wedding planner and a florist, Emmanuel is the person for your special event. Emmanuel is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. (Wedding May 21, 2016) Myrna
I had an intimate wedding and somewhat an off-beat one. Nino of Petals by Emmanuel carefully crafted my bouquet. He suggested all white flowers to go with my floral dress. On top of that, knowing that I love music, Nino created paper flowers out of music sheets of my favorite songs. It made my bouquet extra special and personal. Nino also decorated our DIY donut tower -- it became one of the highlights of the reception. I can't be more pleased with the service of Petals by Emmanuel.
Petals by Emmanuel was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding! Emmanuel was able to take our vision and make it into reality and so much more. As our wedding planner since day one, he took great care of us by being on top of everything and by making sure that he listened to our ideas. His timeliness and attention to detail were outstanding! The wedding ceremony started on time and went smoothly. As our florist and wedding design stylist, he went ABOVE and BEYOND by turning our reception space into the reception venue of our dreams! The stylistic touches he surprised us with were very tasteful and classy. Overall, the wedding reception had such an elegant but festive atmosphere. He really listened to what we wanted and envisioned and made it happen. He worked with our budget and made sure we got the best out of it! I can't thank Petals by Emmanuel enough for making our wedding preparations as fun and smooth as possible, and for making our wedding day such a beautiful one. I definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a florist and/or a wedding planner. Thank you, Petals by Emmanuel!
We are speechless!!! Emmanuel is not only good, he is a very talented who will make a flower centerpiece an amazing floral design that can take your breath away. He has talent, technique, passion and amazing ideas. There is no words to describe how happy and proud of his work we are.
Table set-up for dinner blew everyone away. 1 month later, people are still talking about my flowers. I was so delighted with my whole experience with Centerpieces
We highly recommend him. We wish him the best in his career and goals!
My now husband and I were so pretty nervous about flowers- we didn't know what we wanted and we didn't know how expensive it was going to be. Emmanuel worked well with us even though we were working within a tight budget. I remember the first time we told him our price point and he said, "I'll make it work." He was absolutely true to his word, and the flowers were absolutely stunning. I recommend that EVERYONE use Petals by Emmanuel for all of your flower needs.
I used The Knot to guide me in planning my wedding and to cut costs. I didn't think I needed a florist or wedding coordinator because I thought those were unnecessary costs. Boy was I wrong! The closer I got to my wedding I realized those are two of the most important elements of planning the perfect wedding ceremony and reception. So two weeks before my wedding I found Petals by Emmanuel on The Knot. I desperately contacted Emmanuel and he met with me the same day for a consultation. He was extremely professional. Not only did he create all the floral centerpieces, bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres he also coordinated my entire wedding with only two weeks notice. Emmanuel has a natural passion for managing all aspects of a wedding and was able to pull it together seamlessly. His prices are extremely reasonable and he will work with your budget. Words can't express my gratitude and appreciation for the high level of customer service and quality Emmanuel provided on my special day. I highly recommend him for floral arrangements and as a wedding coordinator. I truly had a fairytale wedding! My guests are still texting me about the wedding. It was amazing and Emmanuel is awesome to work with. Trust me you will not regret your decision.
Sincerely - A very satisfied bride S.
Nino did a wonderful job on our floral arrangements! My husband and I had a black tie affair in downtown DC and wanted very simple arrangements which were mainly white with some pink accents. I sent him some pictures from Pinterest and described what we liked and he totally nailed it. He met with us several times to talk about my vision of the wedding and offered services at reasonable costs for the DC metro area. Anytime I had questions he would quickly text me back or call, which was great! His floral arrangements on the guest tables were perfect and exactly what we envisioned, classy, yet simple. Our favorite arrangement was our sweetheart table; we didn’t’ really discuss it too much but I was so pleasantly surprised by such a thoughtful, romantic table. The bridesmaid’s bouquets and my bouquet was both lovely. I wanted quite larger bouquets and he did a very nice job. Thank you to Nino and his team for making my wedding day flowers absolutely perfect!
Petals by Emmanuel was the first vendor I considered after I saw what a lovely job they did for my cousin's wedding back in 2010. We were impressed by Emmanuel's vision for our wedding - he took our hodge podge of ideas (white flowers, tall and short centerpieces, floating candles, nothing flashy) and melded them into a seamless theme that wowed all of our guests. He thought of everything from the boutonnieres to the centerpieces for the breakfast the next morning. He was always quick to respond to phone calls/emails, confirmed what I wanted before putting together samples, and gamely accommodated additional requests as the big day approached. Several of my friends who attended the wedding have already called him for their weddings. I PROMISE you won't be disappointed! Thanks Emmanuel for an unforgettable day!
