We had a short time to do our daughter’s wedding & when we got to the florist, we were one month to go. Winnie did an excellent job arranging everything. We weren’t sure what we wanted & Winnie kept working with us till we all agreed. Everything came out even better then expected. Winnie is a professional- really knows her stuff. Highly recommend.

We were first introduced to FlorUnique through our wedding planner and met with Winnie at her shop for a consultation. We wanted to minimize using flowers since some of our family members are allergic to pollen so we wanted to use succulents as our floral decors instead. She carefully listened to what we had envisioned and provided us with some ideas and mockups.

On the wedding day, the florals turned out exactly what we had envisioned and more! Winnie took care of every details including our bar decors and floral collar for our dog. Everything was so beautiful and cohesive and our center pieces were a hit among our guests! We were able to take our sweetheart table succulents home and replanted them in our patio, allowing us to always remember what a beautiful night it was.

We definitely recommend FlorUnique for floral vendor because Winnie makes magic!

We had the most incredible experience with FlorUnique. Our flowers were the highlight of our wedding decor and a talk among our wedding guests everytime our wedding day came up. Winnie has an amazing talent turning your vision into reality! More...

Our wedding flowers were absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Before our initial consultation, Winnie asked us about our flower preferences, wedding colors, personal style, etc. When we arrived at FlorUnique, Winnie had all of our favorite flowers on hand and she put together a gorgeous sample bouquet on the spot. There was no doubt in my mind that Winnie was the florist for us!

I was originally referred to Winnie at FlorUnique by my spin class instructor (Winnie did a gorgeous job with her wedding flowers!) and later found out that she had also done my brother’s wedding 15 years earlier. My mom told me she was amazingly talented — a true artist — and she was so impressed with how she handled everything the day of my brother’s wedding (it was 105 degrees, the cake melted and Winnie saved the day by strategically covering the cake with gorgeous flowers).

Winnie is warm, sweet, kind, easygoing, detail oriented, passionate and insanely talented! She puts her heart and soul into her work and it shows.
She knew exactly how to realize our vision — classy with a casual elegance — and she went above and beyond to execute it perfectly. She was great at communicating with us every step of the way and very conscientious of staying within our budget.

The day of our wedding turned out to be the hottest day of the year — around 100 degrees — and once again Winnie had the challenge of dealing with delicate flowers during a heatwave. And as if that weren’t enough, her assistant injured herself the morning of our wedding and ended up in urgent care, so Winnie was left to do everything on her own. I’m not sure how she did it, but she managed to pull it off. Every little detail — from the charms on my bouquet to the floral wreaths for my nieces to the stunning flowers on our cake — was sheer PERFECTION! She even repurposed the flowers from our arch/chuppah for our sweetheart table which made me so happy because I hated the idea of those flowers being used for such a short time and going to waste. I was also able to save many of the succulents from our arrangements and they are now in a hanging wall garden in our backyard — a wonderful reminder of our special day!

Winnie…we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so magical!!!

Winnie is the most amazing florist! Highly recommend. From the start of our initial consultation, we could tell Winnie was the perfect florist for us. She listened and understood what we wanted, and also made wonderful suggestions to make our ideas come to life in ways we didn't even think were possible!
From just talking to Winnie, it is so clear that she has a passion for weddings, floral design, and love. We wanted something a bit challenging that we weren't sure was possible, Winnie excitedly took on the challenge and made something more beautiful that we even imagined.
She had a smile on her face the entire time and was a joy to work with. Working with Winnie was a wonderful experience.

We had the best experience with Florunique!!! Winnie is such a sweet person and she made our experience so easy and in our price range! Did not pressure us and we waited until the last minute and she made it go so smoothly! She also had a full tub of flowers to show us and actually cut the and formed them into what it would be at our wedding!!! Who does that!!! So nice of her! Highly recommend!!!! Such a nice person!!!

Winnie did a phenomenal job with the flowers at our wedding. They were absolutely beautiful and we're still getting compliments about them, months later. We came in not knowing very much about flowers, but Winnie patiently walked us through all of our different options. She had no trouble making modifications at our request, and the result was perfection. I would highly recommend Winnie to any couple for their wedding. More...

Winnie was amazing to work with! The process of putting together my vision with her was fun and easy. The outcome was above and beyond what I expected and I felt like she really brought the venue and my day to life! People are still raving about the flower arrangements! When I saw my bouquet I immediately fell in love and am so appreciative of her hard work and creativity. More...

We got married on May 19th in Redondo Beach. Winnie is a true floral artist. Everyone was amazed at how beautiful the flowers were at our wedding. This may sound surprising, but when we were interviewing florists, she was the only one that actually had physical flowers on hand to make a mock-up of my bouquet. I was instantly awed at how lovely and creative her ideas were. We went with a blue orchid theme, which she brought to life amazingly, and we also had an Indian ceremony. For this she decorated the ceremony stage with white and red flowers, and she was able to arrange lovely garlands for us to exchange during the ceremony. At the last minute I realized I had forgotten to order a few blue orchids that could be placed in my hair, and even the morning of she was able to easily arrange to make sure that these made it to the bridal room. She is a fantastic person to work with and I found myself wishing for an excuse to order more flowers after all the wedding festivities were all over and done with! More...

One word: DEDICATED. Winnie is the best of the best. She LOVES what she does, and you can truly tell through her work. Her attention to details, artistry, craftsmanship and personality are all the qualities of a super cozy home that you don't ever want to leave. If you are looking for a florist for your wedding or event, hire winnie, you won't regret it folks. Thanks for continually delivering the best service! XO More...

I am so happy that I found Winnie and worked with her. My first experience was a flower crown and she made exactly what I had in mind. For my engagement, the first thing I was sure about was my florist. Winnie spent a lot of time working with me, she was so flexible and creative, she actually cared about what I wanted and could do everything I was looking for within my budget. Everyone was talking about the beauty of the flowers and it made me feel great! More...

Working with Winnie at FlorUnique was literally my favorite part of the wedding planning process. Walking into her office, I knew what sort of theme and atmosphere I wanted for my wedding, but not specific flowers or arrangements. Because of this, I had struggled through consults with other florists. Not so with Winnie. Through the course of our initial consult, Winnie seemingly effortlessly created prototypes of the perfect floral arrangements for my ceremony and reception. Throughout the whole process, Winnie was patient, flexible, and just delightful to work with. She went above and beyond in all aspects. The day of my wedding proved to be no exception. The bouquets for my bridal party were simply stunning and she had transformed my reception into a magical candlelit botanic wonderland. Apart from the groom, contracting Winnie at FlorUnique was the best wedding decision that I made. Thank you Winnie! More...

Winnie and her team were very professional and easy to work with. She was very flexible in our meeting times. She's there to help you create your vision and tries to fit it in your budget as well. She can create anything you have in mind, just shower her a picture and she'll make it a reality for you. We loved having her as our wedding florist! More...

Winnie is an absolute genius and she is so incredibly sweet. She really works hard to make everything absolutely gorgeous and perfect. She left no stone unturned and even went above and beyond what we asked for. She was an absolute joy to work with and she made my wedding flowers everything I ever hoped they would be. More...

My daughter had her wedding reception August 25 of this year at Los Verdes Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes.  I had already been acquainted with Winnie as she provided flower arrangement for a table design show that I have each winter.When my daughter was engaged and started planning her wedding last November, I remembered how  gorgeous and unique Winnie's arrangements were at my fundraiser.  I contacted Winnie and she was beyond helpful and delightful in every respect.  My daughter had a general idea on the look she wanted for her bouquet, bridesmaid and table arrangements but Winnie helped so much in this regard as my daughter changed her mind on flowers and colors throughout the process.  In the end, the flowers and arrangements were breathtaking and so much of that had to do with Winnie's expert guidance.  Winnie's final cost met our budget and was worth every penny. Winnie also has a delightful personality and she made time for our several brainstorming sessions. More...

Winnie was very kind and so incredibly helpful!  My wedding is not until next summer in Oregon and she was willing to work with me to with some flowers I picked up at the LA flower market.  We sat and chatted about my vision while she helped me to put together a bouquet, even assisted with a few flowers she had of her own!  She was very versatile in her skills, and was quite knowledgeable about the tips and tricks for wedding flowers!  I wish I could use her as my own florist but I would highly recommend her and would use her at any other opportunity as well!

I can't say enough amazing things about Winnie and Florunique. First of all, she's just an absolutely delightful person - - every time I went in to ask her a question or make a little change to what I wanted, I ended up sitting there chatting with her and playing with her adorable dog because I just loved being there. And her flower arrangements were just gorgeous. Everything exactly as I wanted (and for all the things I wasn't sure what I wanted, she made suggestions that were just beautiful) -- and when I showed up on my wedding day, I noticed that she had added several little extras that we didn't even contract for, but which really tied everything together and added beauty and color. She made my wedding so beautiful. I can't recommend her highly enough. More...

Where do I even begin? Winnie and her team at FlorUnique are true artists. I got married on October 6th of this year at the California Yacht Club in Marina Del Rey. I had a pretty complicated vision  for Winnie, and not only did she make it happen, she exceeded any ideas I could ever come up with. She also managed to come up with clever ways to save us money with our TIGHT budget. I knew I really wanted Winnie to do our flowers but I just didn't know if I could ever afford anyone as great as her. If you're in the same boat that we were in, talk to Winnie!! She has a bunch of little tricks for cutting costs. We ended up using our beautiful bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces, and our floral arrangements from the ceremony for our sweetheart table. For my wedding, I envisioned pumpkins, nautical, and romance- haha I told you it was complicated. I also had all my bridesmaids in different dresses. I was hoping the flowers would be able to tie my vision together and keep it from looking all over the place. Winnie came up with the brilliant idea of weaving gold rope into the deep burgundy and blush arrangements to tie together our romantic nautical theme. She also made beautiful floral hair pieces for each of my bridesmaids to help bring some cohesion to their mismatched dresses. If you're looking for the best florist in all of Los Angeles County, look no further!! I literally looked at my ceremony and reception areas before the wedding started and I couldn't believe how beautiful Winnie made it look. She went above and beyond to bring my vision to life.

I had my wedding reception at Chart House Redondo Beach this weekend. And Winnie's floral arrangements exceeded my expectations above and beyond. She was such a pleasure to work with, from the moment we met. I love how personable she was, and how she took the time to get to know me. I instantly felt a relationship building and knew that she had to be my florist for my wedding. We communicated frequently through email and visits to the shop. When I received my bouquet, corsages, and boutonnières, I was already ecstatic and in awe of the beautiful flowers. After our photo session on the beach during cocktail hour, upon entering the venue, I could already see Winnie's Work on the entrance table. I caught glimpses of the centerpieces before our grand entrance and couldn't wait to see everything all together. Alas we sat at our sweetheart table after our first dance, and I had tears in my eyes from how beautifully put together our table and all the guest tables were. Everything was so beautiful, I could not wait to thank her. All my guests commented on how beautiful the flowers and the colors were. I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much, Winnie. It was truly a grand pleasure to work with you and I will definitely turn to you if I need flowers for another event!! FlorUnique all the way!! More...

I used Florunique for my wedding and I have to say that Winnie is the best! I'm not someone who knows a lot about flowers, but Winnie was able to hear my vague descriptions of the look and feel of my wedding and come up with a beautiful concept for my flowers, all within budget. I really appreciated her mindfulness when it came to my budget and was simply amazing to work with. She made herself available to speak with me anytime I wanted to discuss a change or addition to my flower order and made me feel completely comfortable the entire time. I highly recommend! More...

I used Winnie at Flor Unique for my wedding and working with Winnie was amazing. She is kind, professional and so talented. The flowers were so beautiful it made our wedding perfect. She is very thoughtful and gives you all the time you need to make sure all needs are met with regard to colors and presentation. Her prices were reasonable and well worth it. I even made last minute changes and she was able to accomodate. She is very experienced and was able to help me make decisions to ensure a smooth process. Everything was delivered on time and she even made a few extra arrangements of flowers for the bathrooms. How great. Thank you Winnie!!!! More...

Winnie did an AMAZING job with our flowers, evoking a sense of magic and true artistry. We wanted to integrate Japanese Ikebana style flower arranging into our decor, and Winnie did an incredible job communicating and working with us to create arrangements in the style we wanted. When my bridesmaids first saw their bouquets, they literally gasped with delight at their beauty (and then immediately started taking pictures of them). Winnie was also open to our request to use mostly native, sustainably grown plants, which was important to us. The day after the wedding, we delivered extra centerpieces to friends and family as gifts to brighten up their homes. We are so grateful to Winnie for making our special day beautiful and elegant, with vibrant pops of color! More...

FlorUnique is amazing, and Winnie is the best! I have to add in here that my fiance and I ended up not going with FlorUnique for our wedding this November, but it was a difficult decision I wish I didn't have to make. Winnie understood what I wanted and how to achieve it. Our theme is music festivals, but we didn't want a typical boho or hippie look. We had the idea of something a little wild, but tamed; colorful but not overwhelming; there was a lot going on.Winnie was so kind and sweet, and she is very creative. I totally think you should let Winnie run free with the basic ideas you have, and she'll transform your flowers/centerpieces/bouquets/etc. into what you've envisioned plus more! Our idea wasn't easy, as we wanted 5 different colors at 5 different sections, with tall, low, and submerged centerpieces--and we wanted it all to feel unified still! I'm blown away by her work. And I'm disappointed I could not choose her and we tried to work every angle so we could have her but not change the overall look we wanted, but as we are having our wedding in Malibu, there are unavoidable costs that FlorUnique in Redondo would have for traveling so far as opposed to one located more closely. That and a couple other unavoidable reasons not within Winnie's control, affected us to go with someone else.In the future, if I need event flowers, Winnie will be my choice. She works hard to make sure you like what you see, that she achieves your dream look (or as close as you can get), and just overall makes sure you're satisfied. I highly highly recommend her. And whenever we have something special to celebrate again, I'm going straight to FlorUnique first. More...

Winnie was a dream to work with. She understood my vision and ran with it. The day before my wedding, Winnie couldn't find a specific type of greenery that I had wanted due to the heavy rains in CA, so she sent me photos of two alternatives to let me choose from. Customer satisfaction is very important to her and she helped create the most beautiful atmosphere for my wedding. I can't recommend her enough! More...

I chose Winnie from Florunique because she was the most professional and thorough during our initial consultation. I knew absolutely nothing about flowers when I went to her about my wedding. She was so patient and explained all the details with me. I had no idea what my budget for flowers was supposed to be and she helped me decide and worked with me to fit my budget. She delivered the flowers on time, and helped make my wedding beautiful. More...

Winnie was the only vendor for flowers I sought out. She came so highly recommended from the venue where I had my daughters wedding last weekend, that was good enough for me. Winnie was an absolute pleasure to work with, so easy, full of brilliant suggestions, an artist at her craft. So professional, So creative, So affordable. We had so many compliments on the flowers and bouquets. Simple and elegant. I would give FlorUnique and Winnie more than a 5 star rating if allowed. Thank you Winnie for helping to make Kate & Ryan's wedding perfect! More...

FlorUnique was amazing. They handled all the flowers for our July 2016 wedding at South Coast Botanic Garden in Palos Verdes. Winnie, the owner, was super thorough from the beginning. I was first impressed when she asked that we send her pictures of what we had in mind as far as flower type, arrangements, sizes, colors and general style of our wedding. Next, we had a sit-down consultation where we went over all the details she'd be covering. She put together mock-ups on the spot of the table arrangements and bouquets and took very detailed notes of everything we discussed, which she later typed up and emailed to us for our records. It was nice when she offered recommendations for alternatives in order to keep us within budget. She was also very talented as far as taking a concept that we loved and adding to it or suggesting other options that matched our style. This made me really trust her and I felt like I could rely on her to improvise, if need be, especially since she understood our style so well. Her work on our wedding day was absolutely stunning. We just loved everything she put together and received an endless amount of compliments on all our flowers. With as much work as we had for Winnie and her team, she was still able to handle a curve ball I sent her way when I realized I forgot to order some flowers for my hair from her. When my mom and aunt showed up at her studio, they said she handled it with total calmness and was able to quickly prepare some beautiful, delicate flowers and eucalyptus for my hair. I loved it. Winnie and her team delivered all the flowers, showed up early and were very accommodating on-site. We had our wedding on a hot July evening and they were great about waiting to put out arrangements, so as to prevent any wilting. They took great pride in their work, were very well prepared and delivered exactly what was promised (and more). More...

Winnie came through for us big time for our recent wedding in Santa Monica. We were planning the event from across the country, and I'll admit we were a bit nervous when responses from Winnie (as well as most people in the flower industry) were touch and go. But, Winnie truly delivered for us, not only in her beautiful colorful arrangements that thoughtfully complemented our lush green space, but also in throwing in a number of complimentary extras (including dropping off baby's breath at the hotel the day of the wedding for my hair!) and in flipping the space where our ceremony was (and cleverly reusing a lot of our ceremony decor) into a very romantic, intimate dinner setting. Also, I should mention she did all of the space flipping while the power had gone out during cocktail hour! Winnie was also very good about working with us on price to keep our flower costs down. Anyway, Winnie is a true hero -- fully recommend FlorUnique! More...

What a busy weekend for Florunique, the exceptional wedding flowers that were done this weekend were perfect. Winnie and her team went above and beyond, a special event for the Los Angeles magazine/L.A. Opera was also for Sunday. We worked a little longer but the results were wonderful. It is a pleasure to watch and work with someone so creative as Winnie Van Heerden. She has such vision and her ideas are cutting edge. Every wedding or event has its own unique touch.. Florunique , The name speaks for itself. The personal touch that makes the difference. Well done Winnie. More...

We loved our service from Winnie. She was great from the start. We started off with somewhat of a limited budget and she was able to work with us to make sure we got what we wanted and were still able to stay close to our budget. She was very attentive to detail and made sure that she understood what we liked. We had a consultation with her and she was able to actually do a mock bouquet which I thought was really nice so I could visually see size, coloring, etc. She arrived on time to set up for the wedding and she did an amazing job! Everything turned out really beautiful! We couldn't be happier. Winnie was very friendly and professional and we would recommend her to anyone! More...

Winnie is truly amazing, she went above and beyond for our wedding.Not only was she able to work with us on pricing that was more than fair, our wedding guests could not stop talking about how gorgeous the flowers were and how beautiful the colors came together. She even left us change the vases at the last minute without any hesitation.She made our tropical themed wedding come to life, we will always be so grateful for that! I would recommend Florunique for any event, you will not be disappointed! More...

Apart from my venue (and my husband, of course), my flowers from Winnie at FlorUnique were my favorite part of my wedding. Winne really took the time to meet with me and my then fiance to discuss the feel and look we had in mind, designed the arrangements with us from scratch, adding some flowers and taking the ones out that we didn't like. The end result was straight out of a fairy tale with a gorgeous lush arch and stunning centerpieces. I loved everything about our flowers, from the colors and arrangements to the freshness and specific florals that were used. And she was able to accomplish so much on our very tight budget. We would recommend her to anyone. More...

We met with Winnie and she had already prepared some floral arrangements that matched the flowers I had mentioned on the phone. She worked with us to stay within our budget which even meant she stayed through our Ceremony to reuse the flowers for the Reception. Truly a wonderful, professional, caring person who made the wedding flowers BEAUTIFUL! Thank You Winnie! More...

My name is Jenny Chang, and I am a wedding planner/designer at Rock N' Events. I've had the honor to work and partner with Winnie from FlorUnique for our most recent weddings/events. I'll tell you guys this right now, there's no one more kind, generous and creative than Winnie. The first time I met Winnie at her office, she welcomed me with a bottle of water, mints, and gave me all of her attention for almost an hour and a half. It wasn't long after I met her and picked her creative mind, that I decided she'd be a partner for Rock N' Events. Recently, my team and I had produced a Berry Beautiful Wedding Photo-shoot. We had to honor to have Winnie be our partnered floral designer for this project. She made sure she had all the details necessary for the pieces we seeked, and implemented the design seamlessly. As a wedding designer, it's so important for me to partner with floral designers that can take initiatives into the creative blueprint of our couple's dream wedding. Needless to say, Winnie always takes initiatives to offer a fresh and new take on floral décor. As a professional, I feel so comfortable working with her because she accepts all of our designs, and will add in her creative twist to make it EVEN better.Winnie, we are SO grateful to know you, and excited to grow together as design partners.Thank you for always being part of our couple's special celebrations, and for helping us produce another rock n' event ;)!!!Jenny ChangRock N' Events More...

We had to move the event indoors and Winnie and her team helped the venue and I flip the room from ceremony to reception in a 15 minute window. She is passionate, caring, uplifting, and her door is always open. I am proud to say I that all of my brides agree.

I met Winnie at a bridal convention. There were only a select few vendors I sought out simply because the concept of a bridal convention was a little overwhelming for me. But I'm so happy to have come across Florunique! Winnie was great and accommodating when it came to EVERYTHING! She is very talented and passionate about what she does. She made sure to understand little details and concepts of the florals we wished to have for our wedding. And often double checked for clarification, which was relieving. She's honest in her work and made sure she understood what we wanted. She also had great suggestions!! We received so many compliments on the flowers the day of our wedding and it couldn't have be done without Winnie and her creative and definite unique talent! The day of our wedding she even had extra flowers and arrangements to be placed in some empty spaces to tie the whole event together. Thank you so much Winnie and Florunique for the beautiful work!

I contacted Winnie about flowers for a church wedding ceremony that I had back in August.  We were doing 2 ceremonies (one at church in the morning and one at another location in the evening) so I was really trying to keep the flower budget low for this.  Winnie was terrific.  She really worked with me on pricing and created beautiful arrangements for next to the altar.  She handled everything for the delivery and really took the pressure off of me on my wedding day.  I would definitely use FlorUnique again!

Words cannot describe the beauty and elegance of the flowers for our lavender and light blue beach wedding in Manhattan Beach! Winnie magically turned the beach into a picturesque garden at sunset with ivory draping and flower lined walkway aisle. The shades and flowers Winnie selected were romantic, refined, and unlike those I have encountered at any other wedding. After seeing her designs, I chose to forego my crystal headband and use one of her arrangements in my hair instead, which perfectly complemented the bouquets and the boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. We heard sigh after sigh as guests arrived to the beach site and were taken aback by the entirety of the romantic setting.

FlorUnique did such a fantastic job of decorating our gazebo and arranging all seven wedding bouquets for me and my bridesmaids. She also did ten boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen, officiant and dads along with two corsages for my mom and mother-in-law. Everyone at our wedding raved about the flowers, how unique, colorful and bright they were. Plus, Winnie worked with us within our budget and special requests. We were so happy with her work and she delivered everything right on time. Thank you so much FlorUnique!! More...

My beach wedding was even more beautiful than I ever could have envisioned thanks to Winnie and her staff from FlorUnique. Winnie is personable, professional, creative, very sweet, extremely talented, and goes above and beyond. She was able to work with my budget and add to the ideas I had for my soft, romantic beach ceremony and reception. I actually met with a couple of other florists before her, but they just didn't feel right. Finally, she was recommended to me by my wedding ceremony venue. As soon as I met her I knew she was the perfect choice. She was even able to show me the flowers she was going to use and give me a little sample. Her contract was very detailed which I appreciated, too. The day of my wedding happened to be the one day out of the year that poured in Southern California! But that didn't stop Winnie and her team from making my wedding dreams come true. After they dropped off the the bouquets, etc. for pictures, they set up our ceremony arch and everything else in the rain on the beach. I'm sure they got drenched! Luckily, the rain stopped right when my ceremony was supposed to begin. Not only was everything breathtaking but it all smelled great, too! I couldn't stop smelling my bouquet. The centerpieces and other flowers at my reception were elegant and gorgeous, too. My guests kept complimenting on how beautiful everything was. She even made a few extras touches that were greatly appreciated, as well. I loved all of my flowers and I'm so happy I chose FlorUnique! You will be, too! More...

Winnie at FlorUnique was amazing to work with! She had so many great ideas for how to make my vision for my wedding flowers not only look spectacular, but to come in on budget. She is a joy to work with, went above and beyond my expectations, and the flowers were pure perfection! Do yourself a favor and hire FlorUnique for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!

Our flowers were GORGEOUS, absolutely gorgeous. When we first sat down with Winnie, all we were able to tell her is that we were having a fall wedding, wanted deep reds and oranges, and that my favorite flowers were gerbora daisies. What she pulled together during our first meeting was beautiful so I knew that it was going to look great, but it all came together better than I ever could have imagined. Additionally, Winnie was incredibly flexible- I wanted the boutonnieres to have wine corks... done; I wanted some of the table centerpieces to be in pumpkins... no problem! While flowers were important to us, we weren't willing to break the bank on them- Winnie helped us to keep things affordable by reusing bridesmaid bouquets and aisle decorations as centerpieces for the reception- and she and her team stayed through the ceremony to reset. Winnie is amazing and I would readily recommend her for your event. More...

Winnie and FlorUnique were fantastic to work with for our wedding flowers. From my first appointment, Winnie understood my vision with very few pictures, she was able to ask the questions that made her understand what I was looking for.

Winnie is the perfect combination of easy-going and detail oriented. She is patient and knowledgeable when working with the bride but very detail-oriented in her work with the flowers.

She was able to transform our reception room in an incredibly short period of time and it was perfect!

Thank you Winnie!!

I found Winnie and FlorUnique on The Knot. She was so amazing to work with from first contact all the way through the wedding. My first meeting with Winnie was through and she was able to capture my vision even though I didn't have a lot of pictures to explain what I was looking for. Our trial centerpiece was exactly what I wanted and Winnie was so accommodating, even when I changed some of the centerpieces a month before the wedding, she easily switched plans and worked them into the overall design.  She offered suggestions that improved the design but remained within our budget. She was able to create a beautiful reception room, exactly what I envisioned in an incredibly short period of time after the venue shortened the amount of time we had to set up. As a very detail oriented person, I can't say how wonderful it was to wake up on my wedding morning, knowing I didn't need to worry about the flowers because I had complete trust in Winnie and her abilities. THANK YOU FlorUnique and Winnie!!!! More...

Winnie at FlorUnique is far more than a florist, she is an artist. She is passionate about the work that she does and it is evident in her work. She was a delight to work with and a great listener. She was able to take a hybrid on Pinterest posts, flowers I liked, and our budget to create spectacular floral arrangements, including a spectacular arch, tall center pieces, bouquets, boutonnieres and more! The day of the wedding, she worked tirelessly in 80 degree temperatures to get everything set up before guests arrived and repurposed some of the flowers for our reception, all seamlessly. She made our wedding spectacular! We would highly recommend Winnie and FlorUnique! More...

Winnie was absolutely awesome! I didn't have a clue who to go with for my flowers and I was blessed to have came across her. My husband (finance' at the time) and I met at her office and we discussed style, colors, and some of our favorite flowers. After having a long and engaging time, we were sold on Winnie our first visit with her without even knowing what she would charge. I was on a tight budget but we made it work! We met several times, exchanged emails and plenty of phone calls. She was always there to answer any questions and to adjust to any sudden changes. Every time I met with her she gave some sort of gift whether it was water and mints, or even a flower or two. She even gave us a sample centerpiece to take home on our first visit! I wish I had a picture but Im waiting on my pictures from our photographer. The day of my wedding, she delivered the flowers and when I saw them I was blown away! I loved my bouquet! I loved my bouquet so much I kept it until it died on me, which was 10 days later. FlorUnique will be my go to place for flowers when I need any for Mother's Day or any other occasion where flowers are a must. Even if I just want a arrangement for my house, Winnie will be getting a call from me. You can't go wrong with FlorUnique! More...

What an amazing surprise! I’ll admit it, it was less than a month before my wedding and we didn’t have a plan for flowers worked out at all! We didn’t know what I wanted, but we knew we would know when we saw it. Winnie and her team worked with our wedding coordinator to take a few pictures I liked on Pinterest and knowing a little about our style, my dress and the wedding location and created ceremony arrangements, bridal bouquets and reception center pieces that seamlessly tied all the elements of our wedding together an absolutely beautiful and romantic vision! There was such care and attention to detail in every arrangement and all the flowers and material were high quality.
Until my wedding day, I didn’t know important flowers were to transforming the day from the everyday to our vision for wedding. Working with Winnie was one of the easiest experiences we had in planning our wedding. We had very little budget reserved for flowers and she was able to work with our budget, shop for the best materials and create unique floral designs that looked like they cost 10 times what we actually paid. In the end, I’ll have to say, I would have never thought that what I love about the pictures of the wedding day is the way the flowers made everything just come alive with color and character. I am always looking to spot one of the centerpieces, bridal bouquets or the garland from the ceremony that was later made into these beautiful Mr. and Mrs. arrangements for our reception chairs!

Winnie is amazing! At our initial meeting for my daughter's wedding, Winnie created a custom arrangement in the mason jar we brought, pulling flowers from a large assortment as my daughter described exactly what she wanted--a very muted shabby chic pale pastel arrangement. Winnie then worked with us on the price, sending photos of various options for centerpieces for 23 tables with two floral arrangements on each. We also had a lot of candles in hurricane holders as well as assorted votive candles on each table. Winnie came up with the idea of sprinkling rose petals and crystals down the center of each table to pull everything together. The result was magical. She even transported an SUV load of our candles and holders for us without extra charge. Before the wedding, we created a mock up of the table in her shop, and she took a photo to show the set-up crew so everything would be just right.  She also designed two incredibly neat lighted branches in urns for the entrance to the reception, created a custom floral crown for my daughter and decorated the cake with flowers. Everything was perfect. More...

I am really anal when it comes to ....well everything, and they exceeded even my expectations! You will be thrilled if you are lucky enough to read this review and choose FlorUnique! They even created a custom fresh flower collar for our Chocolate Lab who was at the wedding as well! A joy to work with, and very reasonable for the beautiful flowers and service they provide.

FlorUnique designed and provided the flowers for my May 2014 wedding. I wanted something a little "me" (rock and roll:) but also something classy. Together we came up with a beautiful red rose/black succulent (red and black were my wedding colors) combination that fit the bill of having personality but looked classic and beautiful.

Aside from this Winnie also created special touches that added touching moments and unique flair. For instance, for the ceremony, my father, who is physically disabled and uses a cane, walked me down the aisle. Winnie created a garland that encircled his cane adding a fun and beautiful accent. As well, we had my my 7 month old niece as the flower girl (she's my only niece, so we had to have her....:). She was pulled in a wagon befitted with a pillow and seatbelt. Winnie created a headband for her that matched our flowers theme as well as decorate the wagon. Many of these smaller details were memorable pieces that my guests still bring up today.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Winnie was providing flowers for my wedding. I found her through the knot.com, and her reviews were already great. She was literally the first florist I called and I didn't need to look anywhere else.
From day one, she was kind, very attentive, and answered as many of my questions and concerns as I wanted. She was always willing to meet with me, as many times as necessary, and she never made me feel like I was taking up too much of her time, answering every text and phone call in a timely manner. She was willing to work within our budget and even helped us by giving us tips on which flowers would be more expensive during that season and what we could substitute for the same look but at a lower cost. She heard my vision and what look I wanted and delivered exactly.
I think most valuable to me, however, was that she thought of things that hadn't even occurred to me. She thought of everything, and the day of the wedding, while I was busy with photos and caterers and chair delivery, she made sure everyone had their flowers and she even created a flower girl basket at the last minute for one of my flower girls because my mom was supposed to purchase a basket and she had completely forgotten to. The day of my wedding was also the day of Winnie's own anniversary, but she showed up and made sure everything was done according to the look I wanted, and I can't thank her enough for her personal attention. She was one of the few vendors I had that helped make my planning easier, and throughout the whole planing process, from the beginning, she made me feel assured that I wouldn't have to worry about the flowers, and that she had me covered. I really felt like my wedding flowers were as important to her as they were to me, and that's a quality you can't find in every florist. I would recommend her to anyone I know getting married.

Jaw-dropping...My flowers were absolutely jaw-dropping, thanks to Winnie of FlorUnique.

She is a visionary, able to pull together a barrage of adjectives (beautiful, romantic, whimsical, vibrant) into a tangible reality, a singular noun: perfection.

It should not have come as a surprise, as she made a stellar first impression. She was warm, engaging, fun, considerate of our wants and how to attain them within our budget. I truly did not think the money we had allotted would be sufficient in creating the image in my mind, but let me tell you, Winnie not only met that vision -- she SURPASSED it -- and without spending even a penny more.

She is, beyond a doubt, an artist in the truest sense of the word. She made my wedding resonate in living color. From my bouquet, to the pergola, cocktail tables, reception and cake, Spring was in bloom, every petal picture perfect. A unicorn would have fit right in, it was so fantastic!!!

Winnie, should you read this, know that being wed amongst such beauty was a blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Winnie is by far one of the sweetest, most patient, and talented people I have ever met. I started with an email to her and set up a meeting. I had a vision for my wedding of 1920s decor, complete with feathers, tall arrangements, and specific ideas for my bouquet. That being said, I really had no idea how to create that vision.

When we met, Winnie asked me more specific questions about what I liked and didn't like. She listened to everything I had to say, and designed (she actually hand drew) pictures to show me what she thought I wanted. I left energized and excited that she took my words and made them into these awesome creations. I met with her again a few months and many emails later, and she had purchased some of the flowers that she thought we could use. It was good that she did, because it turns out the original color that we thought would work, didn't at all. Winnie quickly had some other suggestions, and we figured out the best color. To wrap the bouquets, I gave Winnie material, and she was happy to create the wraps for me.

In our last meeting, we touched on all of the extras for the wedding - flowers for the guest book, place card table, etc. Winnie was kind enough to suggest some less expensive flowers so I didn't break the bank. In all of our conversations, Winnie was more than willing to listen to my ideas and suggestions and offer her expertise in a friendly, professional manner. I left that last meeting feeling completely confident that my flowers were going to be absolutely stunning.

And, absolutely stunning they were. The large arrangements were incredible - a blend of orchids and feathers. My bouquet was so perfect, I cried when I saw it. Everything about the decor that Winnie touched was perfect

I cannot recommend FlorUnique enough. Winnie will take your vision and make it even better, which is the best part of working with her. I can't imagine my wedding without the gorgeous flowers that Winnie created.

As a bride, you want your flowers to be beautiful, tasteful, artistic, reflect your style, and of course, not cost a bazillion dollars.  You worry because you really actually don't know what the flowers and arrangements will look like until your wedding day.  It can be a very stressful experience.  Luckily for me, I was fortunate enough to find FlorUnique and work with Winnie to create the perfect arrangements, boutonnieres, and bouquets for my wedding!Winnie is by far one of the sweetest, most patient, and talented people I have ever met.  I started with an email to her and set up a meeting.  I had a vision for my wedding of 1920s decor, complete with feathers, tall arrangements, and specific ideas for my bouquet.  That being said, I really had no idea how to create that vision.

Winnie van Heerden at FlorUnique did an amazing job bringing my floral vision to life. The color schemes and combination of flowers she used spoke of her creativity and artistic talent. The wedding flowers transformed an old room with a yacht club feel into a magical space and wedding ready.

Winnie responded to emails in a timely manner, was professional in her proposals and competitive in pricing.

We received favorable compliments on the flowers from all of guests. The color scheme was deep purple and ivory with hints of lavender, pink and fuscia. It is not a combination that is common for weddings so the flowers looked unique and fresh. The quality was also amazing. The size of the orchids were big, bright and beautiful. I have nothing but great things to say about Winnie and FlorUnique. We hope to be able to use her again some day!

The time difference did not matter to her. My emails were answered within the hour. I couldn't imagine hiring a other florist other than Winnie. Her work speaks for it self. She has so much love and passion for what she does. Lets just say that I was very comfortable with all my dealings with Winnie.

Winnie is absolutely amazing! I knew I had found a great floral designer from the very first phone call we had together where she went over every detail with me (i don't know much about flowers). She put together our vision before even sending us the contract to make sure she had everything we wished for and then followed up consistently with emails on ideas and suggestions. As we are from out of state, when we finally did meet both my fiance and I had such a great time seeing every piece in person. Winnie worked within our budget and made some great recommendations to make sure we kept to the costs as we had planned them. She never made me feel like i emailed too many questions and helped me feel so at ease through the process. Highly recommend! Lovely services and lovely person! Winnie did a lot of research for our succulent-heavy design. Everything was perfect and more beautiful than we envisioned! She even helped us adjust our table design last minute when we realized we would have less tables than we originally planned. More...

I worked with Winnie at FlorUnique and she was a delight to work with. When I first called her she was so professional and so helpful in finding the solution to my wedding flower issue. My wedding was a destination wedding in the Caribbean and so I really needed a place that could do silk/fake flower arrangements for me (which, I found out is extremely difficult to find places that make fake flower arrangements). I gave her my ideas for what I wanted and she found all the flowers I asked for. They looked incredibly real and even felt real. We met several occasions and I made my critiques and she made the changes I wanted each time I asked her. She made them exactly how I wanted. She was so flexible with my requests and very easy to work with. She was also very flexible when scheduling meeting times. She also had amazingly reasonable prices. I was able to get my flowers for my wedding at a 1/3 of the cost as I would have paid for real flowers in the Caribbean. I also want to say that each arrangement she made was very durable. We traveled 17 hours with these flowers and every single arrangement made it there perfectly. I had her complete for me: 5 bridesmaids bouquets, two alter arrangements, one toss bouquet, 5 groomsmen boutonnières, flowers for my hair, and flowers for the flower girls to toss down the isle. I was more than satisfied with all of them. One last thing I think is important to mention, we communicated mostly by email and as a bride it is hectic planning a wedding so email is an easy way to communicate. Winnie always responded to my emails immediately within the same day, so I never had to stress out in waiting for a response. And she had all my flowers ready by the date we agreed on. I couldn't have been more happy with my wedding flowers. Everyone thought they were real at my wedding. Winnie you were a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for helping my dream wedding to come true!!! More...

Winnie at FlorUniuqe was wonderful to work with through the wedding planning process.  I called her and told her about the few ideas I had for wedding bouquets and boutonnieres and we setup a time for me to come in.  She has her own shop in Redondo Beach and she sat down with me and looked through lots of photos of events she had done and magazines with pictures that were relevant to what I told her I was looking for.  Knowing nothing about flowers going into the process, she was very patient and helpful.  She never pushed me into anything I didn't want, she was open to my ideas.After our first session going through pictures and picking things we wanted to work with, she ordered flowers and I came in while she put together sample bouquets - one for me and one bridesmaid sample.  This ended up being a great session - getting to see everything put together and being able to tweak our vision now that the flowers were in her hands.  We got everything just how we wanted, took pictures and I kept the lovely bouquets!  It was such a weight off my shoulders knowing what the bouquets would look like on the day of the wedding - one less thing to think/worry about!FlorUnique delivered the flowers to my church not just on time, but early! They had everything laid out and labeled for the groom, groomsmen and family members.  The flowers were gorgeous, healthy and well put together.  It was a long day (ceremony at 2:30pm, reception ended at 1am) and the flowers held up perfectly!I'd really recommend working with Winnie, she was really willing to work with me with pricing and I feel like I got lots of beautiful flowers for a very modest budget.

My experience with Winnie at FlorUnique was entirely positive. She worked with us on cost and she helped us to choose less expensive flowers that still met our color and mood needs.
Winnie made dduble use of our own mason jars as ceremony decor AND centerpieces. Quite a cost cutter. She also used foliage from my garden for dramatic effect in the large arrangements.
It was lovely also that they provided a tribute arrangement for a beloved great grandmother.
Winnie was adept at sensing what mattered to us and offering choices. The personal flowers were elegant and understated, as were all of the flowers. Her flowers really caught the happy, fresh, crisp feeling we wanted.

Flowers were my top priority for our wedding- so I made sure that I won the 'compromise' of taking my husband's last name if I could go all out with the flowers. Luckily, I found THE BEST florist for the job. I wanted flowers everywhere- a tasteful, elegant and spiritual feeling throughout the 4 rooms of the private club in which the the wedding was held. The chuppah looked gorgeous- the perfect backdrop for our family pictures. Reception room stunning arrangements. On top of the beautiful work, as a full-time working professional, I planned the wedding late in the evening. Whether the emails came through at 10am or 10pm, Winnie was always very responsive. Winnie took my suggestions and made them better. A true pleasure to work with! More...

From the moment we chose Winnie we knew it was a perfect fit! She encompassed everything the couple had envisioned for their special day. A very small, elegant ceremony and dinner. We had a few unusual requests and she took everything in stride and came up with spectacular results, from dog collars to a creative flower girl basket and mini bridal bouquet for their 3 year old. From the beautiful arch flowers right down to the hand tied orchids on our napkins each detail was perfect. We will recommend her to everyone! Thanks Winnie!!! More...

FlorUnique did an amazing job for our wedding. Everyone was amazed by how beautiful everything came out. They were able to capture every detail that I dreamed of.. from my girls bouquet, the church and of course at the reception. Everything turned out better than I imagined and I recommend FlorUnique to any bride who's looking for an amazing florist! Cheers to FlorUnique!!! More...

Winnie was great! My husband and I were very busy with our schedules and were from out of state. Winnie made time and sat down with us to go over what we like. Additionally, she sat down with my family to go over it again. She even came in early the day of our wedding so someone can pick up the flowers for us. The day of the wedding, all our flowers were amazingly put together and so fresh and beautiful. She even included extras just in case. She was so thoughtful and so sweet. More...

Winnie at FlorUnique is so wonderful! We met with her several times and she brought great ideas to the table and helped refine my concepts into something truly stunning. We collaborated on ideas via Pinterest and in multiple face-to-face meetings. She was a delight to work with and her work is gorgeous. I got many compliments on the arrangements, bouquets, and all the decor. She made our day so beautiful. More...

Winnie gave us everything we wanted. I told her my basic requests, my budget, and then she did the rest! Our flowers were perfect!!

Winnie was fantastic, and our flowers were gorgeous! I'm not great at identifying flowers and plants beyond basic roses and tulips, so I really relied on Winnie to suggest interesting options (ti leaves, unusual orchids and roses, berries). I had a vision of color and texture, and I took pictures of bouquets that I liked and didn't like to our first meeting. Winnie walked me through a number of options, and ordered samples for our second meeting. I was really happy with the samples, and when the real thing arrived on our wedding day, I was floored by how beautifully they turned out! Absolutely gorgeous! More...

I could NOT have been happier with the job that Winnie and her team at FlorUnique did for our wedding. She took our project on at the last minute, as wedding planning goes, and she managed to pull everything together very professionally. She worked within our budget and gave us more arrangements than we'd expected to be able to get. Our guests RAVED about how beautiful everything was, as did we. I'd highly recommend their services!

Winnie did an excellent job in providing flowers for this unique wedding. The bridal bouquet looked amazing. The centerpieces on each table were lovely and fun to match the top hats. I had many compliments on the flowers. Thank you so much. More...

Winnie did my daughter's wedding. She did a wonderful job of translating my daughter's desires into reality and on a tight budget too! The bouquets were simple, but stunningly beautiful. We only met with Winnie in person once. All other communication was by email because my daughter lives in Thailand now but was returning here to get married. Winnie worked with us through the long distance communication. We made several changes just a few weeks before the wedding and she kept up with all of them. She adapted as we needed. Very easy to work with and creative too! More...

I am so happy to be the first one to review FlorUnique. I worked with Winnie and she is amazing. I had booked her approx. 6 + months before my wedding and we had kept open communication up until the wedding. About a month before the wedding I emailed her to asking her if I could do some changes to the flower centerpieces, bouquets, etc. She was so flexible and gave me some feedback. She didn't always agree with me which was nice and she always advised me if there was a price adjustment either higher or lower. I couldn't have asked for someone better. She also gave me an extension on my final payment. She put up flowers and organza on a gazebo and decorated a staircase. After the ceremony she transfered most flower arrangements to the inside where the reception was being held. I could go on and on, on how amazing she was. She is someone you should check out!!!
