“My flowers were absolutely beautiful, and she was by far the most reasonably priced floral vendor”
Of all my vendors, Ingrid was the quickest responding and easiest with which to work. Even though I planned my wedding cross country and wasn’t able to meet Ingrid in person before the big day, she set my mind at ease and I knew everything would be exactly as I envisioned. She really understood what I was looking for and made the picture in my head come to life. My flowers were absolutely beautiful, and she was by far the most reasonably priced floral vendor in Santa Barbara. I would not hesitate to recommend her! Click here for pictures

“A magical feeling of spontaneity, beauty, love and gratitude”
“When my fiance and I planned our ceremony in Santa Barbara, “simple” and “stress free” were on the top of our priority list. We wanted the day to be about love and gratitude for the beautiful things that life bestows upon us, spent in the company of very few people we are closest to. Beyond a few loose ideas and minimal planning, we were certain that togetherness and the reasons for being there would guide the day to unfolding in a free, spontaneous, and magical way. My fiance’s only request was that I wear flowers in my wild and crazy hair, and that I wear it in its normal wild and crazy way. From the moment I spoke to Ingrid, I knew she understood what was really important to us. Her soulful and artistic spirit gave me confidence in describing what I had in mind, and leaving the rest up to her. The day of the ceremony, she showed up with the most simple and exquisite bouquet of calla lillies tied with ivory ribbon. The flowers for my hair were extraordinary; she had gone all over town and finally found several tiny clips, and hand-made each one by gluing beautiful little flowers to them so that they could be placed in my hair easily, while honoring its unruly and wild nature. The wreath she brought for my niece the flower girl just happened to match the dress she chose to wear… perfectly; my only request from those present was to wear whatever they felt most beautiful in. Ingrid also brought with her a bag of rose petals that she’d gathered that morning from the garden; they still had the dew on them!
The energy and heart that Ingrid put into each of her floral creations was apparent, and I felt like a goddess when I went out to meet my groom. She was such a lovely, soulful and creative addition to our day, fitting right in with our small gathering. She really tapped into what our day meant to us, and went to great lengths to create something so unique and heARTful. She captured the magical feeling of spontaneity, beauty, love and gratitude that we wanted our day to be about. I will never forget how special her efforts and attention to detail made me feel, and the love that went into each thing she created for us… thank you, thank you Ingrid!

“Personal florals that made the difference”
To say Melyssa and Rob’s wedding at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum was magical is an understatement. However, it was your creativity and ability to blend succulents and summer flowers into all the personal florals that made the difference. From our first meeting, when Melyssa described her vision to you we knew you understood. Indeed, when you educated us at the succulent nursery we knew everything was in your capable hands. And on Melyssa’s wedding day we knew you had created works of art. On behalf of my family, I thank you for introducing our guests to Santa Barbara floral style, for making the boutonnières, wrist corsages, the flower girl’s crown, as well as providing flowers and succulents for the cake, and most of all, for designing unique sustainable bouquets for the matron-of-honor and my beautiful daughter, the bride.
With Sincere Appreciation,
“Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!”
You were wonderful and I REALLY appreciate everything! The flowers were lovely and just what we wanted. Lisa’s bouquet was perfect! The centerpieces were just the right ‘feel’ for our garden setting. We appreciate your patience both during the planning stage and the last minute changes. You were absolutely the perfect choice for us!!
The floral arrangements you provided for our wedding in April were incredible and a significant ingredient in making our “Tropical Paradise”! The Hawaiian Leis were exquisite and the palm-swathed tiki torches were stunning. Your creative ideas and patience made the whole experience stress free. The whole process, from beginning to end was so easy. I will definitely recommend Bloemen Floral Design to everyone in the future.

“Thank you, Ingrid, for the beauty you added to our wedding ceremony and reception. The flowers looked “fresh picked” and we so appreciate that you were there to be sure everything was in place before anyone arrived. The colors and design of the flowers enhanced my gown beautifully and softened many of the rooms’ features. A special thanks as well for the delivery you generously made to our home. That saved us a trip when there wasn’t time for us to do it. Ingrid, your taste was exceptional; however, I especially appreciate how lovely you were to work with. Thank you again.”
“Above and beyond the call of duty”
Ingrid was the utmost professional and handled my major mid-stream decision change with ease and grace. I ended up with exactly what I wanted, and the colorful bouquet against my ivory dress had the exact visual effect I was after – it made my dress pop! As it turned out, my bouquet was an essential piece of my wardrobe and brought together my maid of honor’s dress and mine perfectly. Also, due to some unexpected snafu on my end, Ingrid delivered my flowers twice! She went above and beyond the call of duty to make my day come off without a hitch. (Except for my new husband who got hitched to me!)”
“The floral arrangements were a big hit”
Just wanted you to know that the floral arrangements were a big hit at the NAWBO-SB Awards event. We put an orange dot on one chair at each table and there was a mad scramble at the end with everyone looking for it. Lots of fun…and the whole event was a huge success.
“Ingrid made the whole process enjoyable. Plus, her pricing was very reasonable.”
Ingrid made the whole process of selecting flowers enjoyable. She was very patient with us as we went through numerous pictures looking for the right combinations. She had many good suggestions about flowers that would compliment each other. She was always prompt and readily available for follow-up questions. She showed up when she said she would, did what she said she would and made the whole process enjoyable. Plus, her pricing was very reasonable. We highly recommend her.
