Liz and her mother, Reno Nevada

“Lois Mathews Design flowers are WONDERFUL! Lois & Jeri did my daughter’s recent La Jolla wedding and we were thrilled with the results. They listened to our somewhat differing visions and came up with bouquets and table arrangements that were exactly what we both wanted. They were respectful of our budget. They were flexible as we changed our needs a couple times. They were professional and prompt, being where they said when they said and returning all calls promptly. And they were a delight to work with. They love flowers and they love serving their customers. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lois Mathews Designs for others needing flowers!!”

 

“I am the mother of the bride and just want to say Lois & Jeri are wonderful!! They were professional, returning calls promptly, meeting with us at our convenience, working within our budget, delivering as scheduled. They were creative, listening to our unformed and differing ideas, and then turning them into beautiful arrangements. And they were kind, helping us with suggestions, being flexible about changes as they came, and even taking the time to transport our left over arrangements when they came to get their vases after the reception. All in all it was a wonderful experience to work with them. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.”

“Lois came recommended and exceeded our expectations.  We told her about what we looking for, shared a few photos of the types of arrangements that we liked and she took care of the rest.  When we walked into the reception we were absolutely blown away by arrangements that Lois put together for us.  With all the details associated with a wedding, it was nice to be able to put our trust in a professional’s hands and let her take care of the rest.  We can’t say enough good things about Lois and would highly recommend her.  You won’t be disappointed.”

“Lois is exceptional! The flowers that Lois provided for my wedding were more magnificent that anything I could have imagined. Lois made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process of working with her. I was initially unsure of what I wanted for my wedding and Lois was incredibly patient and resourceful. She had so many fantastic ideas and the design she came up with for the big day created the exact romantic and elegant feel I was hoping for. Professionally, Lois is outstanding and she is one of the nicest individuals you could ever meet. Highly recommended!”

“Lois is amazing.

We were recommended to Lois by two separate people to be the florist for our wedding in October of 2011. On our initial visit, we knew that there was no other choice for us. Lois made us very comfortable, invited us into her workshop to begin creating centerpieces and bouquets, had a million ideas that matched our vision to a T.
When the big day finally arrived, Lois had worked some serious magic! She arrived to the bridal suite with my bouquet and the girls bouquets (all 9 of us!)  and I was truly floored. The flowers were beautiful and fresh, and it was obvious that Lois LOVES her work.
The ceremony site was done exactly as I had pictured and the cocktail hour tables were decked out perfectly. Once we got into the reception room, there were ooohs and ahhhhs from all of our guests.
Lois also accommodated a last minute request for a huge thank you bouquet (in a vase) for our onsite coordinator. She incorporated the flowers from our wedding and delivered the masterpiece for us.
Lois made our wedding even more memorable by being more than a  business partner. If felt like we were working with family. She is very easy to work with, her contract is easy to understand and she makes herself available to her clients at a moments notice. She was always quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and I never had any fears or concerns when working with her.
I would recommend Lois to anyone. In a heartbeat and without hesitation. We love Lois!”

Josh, San Diego

“If you don’t want to worry, give it to Lois!… to decorate your reception with the most beautiful flowers expressing who you are.  She captured the essence and grace of the 1940’s Hollywood just the way we pictured. Lois will create the experience with her floral design. She is a delight to talk with and her sense of humor is contagious.

“Lois Mathews created the most beautiful flower arrangements for my wedding this last weekend. She is truly a master of her art and skill. All I asked of her was purple flowers, with a timeless and classic look, and she created arrangments that exceeded anything I could have imagined. In addition to her beautiful creations, I loved working with Lois. She has a personality that is so fun and personable to work with. I highly recommend her to any and everyone, and hope I have an occassion to work with her again!!!! I would give Lois 10 stars if I could!!!!!

 

Diann, San Diego

“The first time that I met with Lois, I instantly knew that she was going to be the florist for my wedding. All of her flower arrangements are gorgeous, unique and absolutely beautiful. I shared my initial vision for all of the flowers with Lois and in a matter of an hour I knew that she would exceed all of my expectations…and she did, everything was amazing!

My bridal bouquet was filled with the most beautiful yellow flowers wrapped in silver ribbon and the bridesmaid bouquets were simply elegant. Our ceremony was on the beach and all of the floral arrangements were breath taking. Several of our wedding guests complimented on what an amazing job Lois did putting all of the floral arrangements together.

Thanks Lois for making our day so magical! Diann”

“When I was looking for a florist for my wedding I think I got quotes from about six people. Lois was my last stop of the day and I really was over looking at arrangements and getting quotes. When I got to her studio I loved the romantic style she had. She made me feel as though she really cared about what my vision was for my wedding and was really into it. The other florists that I had gone too basically worked off a check list and said here you go! Lois took the time to make sure things were going to be perfect.

During the initial consultation we walked into her barn of accessories and vases. She took my ideas and ran with them showing me different things she could do based on my theme. The best part was it wasn’t going to be any extra to rent the added pieces. She even offered to help with flowers for the cake which I wasn’t really considering but looked great.

Later I emailed her some pictures and gave her all the specs of the center piece items that I had purchased for the tables. She was very responsive via email and answered all my questions.

On the day of my wedding Lois dropped off the flowers for the ceremony and they were gorgeous. After the ceremony, we went for the reception and it was amazing. She went above an beyond adding so much detail that it took my breathe away. I thought she was reasonably priced but after the day I can tell you she was worth EVERY PENNY!!!! Love this woman and would recommend her to any bride that wants a florist that really cares about your vision. THANKS LOIS!!!!!!!!!!!!”

 

Danielle, Lakeside, CA

“I was amazed by my flowers at my wedding… Lois went above & beyond! when I walked into the reception my mouth dropped open on all of her details & touches she put into the tables, especially the head table. I new I wanted sunflowers & daisies ( i had a country wedding) I told her the flowers i do not like & let her do the rest! THANK GOD i did. Lois added some little extra touches on all the tables that completed it all.

Lois & her team blew me away! I highly recommend Lois Mathews!
Thank you again for all your amazing touches & extras you added to my wedding!

“Lois is extremely creative and ingenous in her approach to florals. I have used her for the past 5 years for an event that draws more than 600. Year after year we receive countless remarks on the uniqueness of the flower arrangements. I give Lois free reign to design and she never disappoints!  She is a delight to work with, has a high degree of integrity and always exceeds my expectations.”

 

Heather S. San Diego

“I met with a number of florists before finding the right one with the right team for my Platinum rated wedding.    When venturing out and meeting with these various florists, I never felt as though they really cared to please me, it was just another wedding to them.  After meeting Lois, and seeing first hand her team in action I felt she and her team would be the one who would take my wedding to the next level.  Lois took the time and care to ask about my ideas, what my favorite colors, flowers were, asked me describe the look  and feel I wanted my wedding to have.  She cared about what I wanted, not what my budget was.  I had seen Lois’ work at a wedding show at The US Grant and was blown away with it, and so when going to meet with her I wasn’t sure I could afford her.  I went to her hoping something could work out without sacrificing my dream look.  Lois turned out to be reasonable with her prices.  She and her team did a superb job, and went above and beyond my expectations.  She took care of special requests we had and adjusted to a few small changes we added.  We wanted to incorporate a gold charm in each groomsmen’s boutonniere in memory of my husband’s father’s recent passing, and she did a magnificent job doing so.  She was so easy going and great to work with…I call her the Martha Stewart of flowers!  Thanks again so much Lois and to your team too!”

 

Heather M., San Diego

“I got married in July 2006 and I still look at pictures of my flowers and just LOVE them! Lois was wonderful to work with. She listened to what I wanted and delivered beautifully. I never felt stressed or worried that my flowers were not going to turn out how I wanted them. There’s so much more to worry about on your wedding day, right? You will not be dissapointed with Lois as she is a wonderful person who does great work!”

Carrie, Goleta, CA

“Lois did the flowers for my wedding on 9/12/09 in San Diego and I could not be happier with the job that she did.  She was a pleasure to work with throughout the process.  The flowers were beautiful and just what I had in mind.  I received so many compliments on the flowers throughout the day.  Lois even assisted me with my dress right before the ceremony, she went above and beyond!  She came back at the end of the reception to pick up her items so I did not need to worry about gathering anything to return to her.  I highly recommend Lois to any brides-to-be!”

 

Suzanne, Redondo Beach, CA

“Lois Mathews is an outstanding florist with an artistic eye!  She helped design not only my centerpieces and bouquets, but helped with ideas for my over all theme.  We did a romance in Paris theme with colors of yellow, creams, antique rose with sprigs of lavender, roses and hydrangeas.  We went as far as putting 3 ft Eiffel Towers on wheat grass and roses to resemble the the garden under the Eiffel Tower for some of the centerpieces.  I received multiple compliments during and after the wedding for how elegant and original it was.  She is delightful to work with and turned my wedding into a dream come true.  I would highly recommend her to anyone!”

 

Carol, Poway, CA

“We first met Lois Mathews through a mutual friend, who knew of her artistic design ability.  We met several times and each time Lois was enthusiastic and understanding of our vision for the wedding.  We put our trust in Lois and allowed her artistic freedom when selecting our flowers.  On the day of our wedding we were amazed at our flowers!  Lois created a sophisticated, elegant feel in the Grand Ball Room at The Prado.  The ambiance, with hundreds of candles, the use of all tall center pieces, and the fragrant smell of flowers, set the stage for a memorable evening.  Many of our guests commented on the lushness of our center pieces, and several mentioned to us that we must have spent a “fortune” on the flowers.  Lois gave us an abundant amount of flowers for a reasonable price.”

 

Marcia, Encinitas, CA

“Lois did the flowers for my daughter’s wedding and they were absolutely wonderful.  She and her assistant captured the bride’s vision to perfection and each table had a fresh and elegant collection of flowers in a potpourri of glass vases and uplit with tea candles..  It was stylish, young, sophistcated and the talk of the town.  Lois was a jewel to work with and gave us her all.  I think the mark of a superior floral experience is the mother’s reluctance to toss out the bridal  bouquet even weeks after the event.                 Marcia, Encinitas CA”

Taylor, San Diego

“Lois is amazing! She is so passionate about her profession and goes above and beyond. She designed the flowers for my sisters wedding in 2007 and when I got engaged in 2008 I knew I needed to ask Lois to design my wedding. I never had to worry because I knew it would be fantastic after seeing my sisters wedding.
On the day of my wedding Lois brought the bouquets to my dressing room. They were unique, vibrant and exactly what I wanted. Then when I went into the reception it continued. Half of the center pieces were candelabras that were from her collection and half were candle stands. both had beautiful floral arrangements on them. It was exactly what I wanted, a combination of flowers and candles. I had met with Lois a few weeks before the wedding and when I had explained that I couldn’t find a gold cake stand she offered to make me one.  On the cake stand she put lace from her own wedding dress.
You can not go wrong with Lois. I have seen two of her weddings in person and each one blew me away.  Every wedding Lois designs is unique because she tailors it specifically to the bride and groom. She made the best day of my life even better.”

 

Bonnie, San Diego

“In planning and assisting with my daughter’s wedding I was luck enough to have found Lois Mathews.  We met with her a few times to make sure she had a sense or what we were looking for within our budget.  Lois was great – she “got” my daughter and went above and beyond in delivering all that was promised and more.   She arrived early and went to work making sure whatever last minute issues and changes were dealt with smoothly as if they didn’t exist.  There’s so much to worry about the day of the wedding that knowing the flowers would show off the day was reassuring.  Everything went amazingly wonderful and we are grateful and lucky that we found Lois.”
