Winnie at FlorUnique was amazing, an absolute artist and such a pleasure to work with. Our arrangements, bouquets, and altar came out flawless. I had people complimenting the flowers all day. Throughout the reception people kept coming up to our sweetheart table to admire them, and they photographed beautifully.
When searching for a vendor, I kept finding salespeople who just wanted to sell from a catalogue of their prior work and sub in my favorite flower. Winnie, on the other hand, was the artist I was looking for. She truly cared about making the arrangements unique and specific to us. She had us meet her at the Shade Hotel Wedding Expo. We gravitated toward a display without even knowing it was hers, and immediately fell in love when we met her.
We talked for a while and then she asked me something no one else had... "what DON'T you like about this set up?" It was such a better way to direct the conversation. She was able to get to the point of what we liked and suggest substitutions and pairings more effectively. Then she pulled out a sketch book and drew out some ideas on the spot.
Next, we set up a time to visit her studio so she could mock up a centerpiece before creating the quote. It meant the world to me to be able to see and touch examples of what we would actually get.
When we came to her shop, she had a bunch of the flowers we discussed set out, and then she created a centerpiece in front of us. It was awesome to be able to give our input as she worked and make changes on the spot. She was great with criticism as well. If something didn't seem quite right, she didn't take offense or get annoyed, she just tore it out and came up with a new idea. It was such a fun and creative process, and the result was so uniquely us.
Winnie took her time and never made us feel rushed or pressured when we met. She really cared about us and our day and she wouldn't rest until she saw that sparkle in our eye. After we booked her, she never stopped communicating with us. She even sent photos of my bridal bouquet the night before the wedding, giving me the chance to make any last minute changes if needed (none were though, it was perfect).
FlorUnique was well worth every penny we spent, and I can't say that about every vendor we chose. Winnie charges her worth, but she was upfront the whole time keeping expectations vs reality in check. We chose some of the more exotic flowers, which means more money. Other vendors tried to deter us from using them to stay within our budget. Winnie took the time to help us think outside the box and found ways to use less florals in certain areas so we could use more where it really counted. She came up with alternatives for certain areas that didn't require us to compromise our style or go over budget. She even found ways to reuse flowers throughout the day, moving and changing arrangements from the ceremony to the reception. I also really appreciated that she never placated us. She has the experience to know what works and what doesn't, and she's not afraid to tell you. She helped steer us in the right direction and didn't make us pay for things we didn't need.
I could go on and on about Winnie. She was a dream to work with and I honestly miss being in touch with her. This review is long overdue as our wedding was back in April, but better late than never. I will use FlorUnique for all my future events and will be recommending her to everyone.
Book FlorUnique and I promise you won't be disappointed!

Working with Winnie & FlorUnique couldn't have been more fantastic! From our first conversation, thru to the day after the event, she fully embraced our quirky concept and to say she exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. From the lit branch tree place card table, to the personalized centerpieces, to the absolutely stunning fabric and floral Chuppah, Winnie took the time to hear us and bring our vision to a beyond breathtaking reality. We wish we could get married AGAIN to be able to work with her, and would recommend her & FlorUnique to ANYONE looking. More...

FlorUnique is the best hidden gem in the South Bay. It is tucked in Redondo Beach near the Marina. My fiance and I had scoped out a few other flower establishments in the South Bay area for our Wedding and Winnie from FlorUnique stood out by far! What I really loved from the first time meeting with her was how creative and innovative she was. We told her colors and the theme we imagined our wedding to be and she would be physically grabbing flowers and fillers to set examples. It was amazing to watch but realistically, so helpful! We had our wedding on a 70ft yacht, so I knew FlorUnique was the one after the first visit to be creative and help our vision come true.

Communication was right on point. Every email and text message was responded to promptly. As promised, she texted me multiple pictures the day before the wedding asking if I approve of all the flowers in my bouquet.

As far as budget, Winnie worked with us every step of the way. There were times when we added and made changes and she was very accommodating. Budgets are very real when it comes to weddings and she totally understood how to work within our specific budget and still make it look amazing!

Being an anxious bride with no wedding coordinator, we wanted to make sure every vendor was absolutely set. Having Winnie in my corner was a weight lifted off from our shoulders.

I have to also throw in here, I requested a last minute boutonniere for my father and she texted back immediately saying she totally can do it.

Literally, everybody who attended our wedding was in awe over the flowers and our photographer. But that's another story.

I highly recommend FlorUnique to all those looking for beautiful, creative, fascinating flower decor for all occasions.

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!

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!!!

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.
