  • The flowers Shell put together were so beautiful. I loved my headpiece, the arch decor and all the bouquets. She was very present on the day of and even was nice enough to film our first look. When I first met her I didn't have a lot of details sorted out but she asked me a lot of questions which helped me figure out what I needed to decide on. She assured me when we meet again she would show me samples. But because of timing and communication issues that never happened. We played a lot of phone tag and I think I was talking more to her assistant. I also sent a lot of e-mails which I rarely got responses from. The day before the wedding she told me the flowers hadn't been shipped in so I was a bit worried. Luckily everything worked out and everything was beautiful day of.

  • We booked Shell's Petals as our wedding florist and coordinator. She was super friendly and had coordinated and provided flowers for weddings at our venue location for at least 10 years. We planned our bi-coastal wedding with the hope that Shell's would make our planning easier and she did. There were some minor miscommunications (and I do mean minor), but Mercury was in retrograde. ;-) Overall, Shell made our wedding look gorgeous with all of the flowers and decorations, and she helped the entire day to flow smoothly.

  • We had a hard time with deciding on where to get flowers. I knew exactly what I wanted for my bouquet and I had an idea for what I wanted for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. She consulted with us and gave us an amazing deal. Most people thought the flowers I wanted were peonies and she was the only one that knew they were garden roses. We also wanted to pick them up the day before our wedding and not have them delivered and she told us exactly what we needed to keep them good overnight. She responded fast when we needed her. Our only worry was her assistant was going to do our flowers and she was not informed on what we wanted but she contacted and asked questions and got it right! I was so happy with her value, vision, and personality. We recommend her to anyone needing flowers, plus her shop is adorable!

  • I used Shell’s Petals for my recent wedding and was nothing less than amazed by Shell. The Flowers: The flowers she created for the day were amazing and beautiful! I know nothing about flowers and needed some hand holding. Shell was great and walked me through the entire process. She stayed within my budget and gave me more than I thought was possible. I wanted flowers that were bright, not perfectly symmetrical, looked a little bohemian, but not like I just went to a random garden and picked flowers. She delivered and understood exactly the look and ambiance I was trying to achieve. She knew that my husband and I were going for sunset colors and love the beach. Within the bouquets she added a flower that looked like piece coral! It was stunning. All of the bridesmaids and myself were in awe of the bouquets. I highly recommend Shell for your wedding flowers! As a Coordinator: Wow. On your wedding day, and rehearsal, you do NOT want to be trying to herd the troops and get all... Read more

  • First of all, Shell not only is the sweetest, but she is super creative. She made our wedding so beautiful with the gorgeous centerpieces, bouquets, gazebo decor, etc. It was just breathtaking!! She really puts her all in her work, and she genuinely cares - I felt like I've known her for years - extremely personable and so thoughtful, which really shines with the beautiful floral arrangements she put together for our wedding. Absolutely LOVE!!! I will recommend Shell's Petals to everyone I know. :)

  • Michelle is great to work with, she will go above and beyond to make sure you get what had envision. Her arrangements are made fresh and they look beautiful, she will coordinate your colors with the flowers and then some more. She has great attention to detail. I will recommend Michelle to anyone in a heartbeat.

  • The flowers Shell did for my wedding were STUNNING! I was amazed that all it took was myself and fiance meeting with her once to discuss our wedding vision with some pictures and she nailed exactly what we were looking for! She is very reasonable and willing to work with you, so if you are looking for a painless process for beautiful flowers...this is it!

  • This is why Shell's Petals is the best florist especially for a once in a lifetime event... I had started Pinterest pinning floral arrangements for our wedding a year in advance. There was one particular arrangement that looked like a fantasy. It was so incredibly beautiful and elegant. There was nothing even close to this arrangement on Pinterest or anywhere else but I kept pinning to gather ideas. It may seem hard to believe but Shell's team recreated that perfectly beautiful centerpiece. It made me cry when I saw it in person. It was my dream come true. The flowers were all abundantly luscious and creamy. I knew it was perfect when people kept taking pictures of the centerpieces including our photographer. THANK YOU Michelle and your amazing lovely team of fairy godmothers that make dreams come true! - Brenda

  • If we could give her more than 5 stars we would! Shell and her team was absolutely perfect! She was one of the best parts about our wedding. Our consultation was held at her shop. She was well prepared with options, photos, and suggestions. We bounced ideas back and forth that day and truly felt that we shared the perfect vision. She was our first candidate, and met with others for good measure, but we knew she was it right away. During the months leading up to the day of, Shell provided constant and prompt communication. We would get e-mail reminders, text messages checking in, and photos with ongoing ideas. Shell provided us with both floral arrangements and month of coordination. Upon reaching the one month mark the communication she provided was perfect. We met again two days before at the venue to perform a final walk through and pass off all of our items for her to make our day beautiful. Shell arrived at the rehearsal ahead of time and made the whole process smooth. T... Read more

  • The reason we choose Shell's Petals is because she was highly recommended by the venue and of course the other vendors. I felt that I wasn't given the attention I deserved. My wedding was a destination wedding and I was unable to foresee all that was going on. I also hired her to do my day of coordinator, which she was nearly impossible to get of hold of 3 months prior to my wedding. When I did reach her she always made me feel like I was either bothering her or annoying her. On the day of our event she was not very helpful. We had an Itinerary that she was to follow it seemed that she had all of my concerns in mind however I felt that my husband and his concerns weren't a factor. The floral arrangements that she had provided were beautiful, but yet I had paid for things that I didn't receive. I happened to receive my wedding photos to see that I did not have any petals put down on the aisle (which I paid for). I didn't realize that our $75 fee would consist of a handful of petals ...

    I wish I knew what wedding this was. Private user doesn't help me respond to well not knowing if it was a windy day and that is why the petals weren't down or if I could compare my photos to what you "didn't" get. I would also like to know what was boring and plain and what the budget was. I strive to give my brides what they want in their vision and means. I am a day of coordinator and not a wedding planner. There is a sequence of events that lead up to the day of. I apologize if you felt neglected or not catered to. Thank you for the input and I will try to figure out a better solution. Sometimes it is frustrating not being local and having a destination wedding. The itinerary is created with the client and the dj and one can never predict how a wedding will play out and sometimes will need to be adjusted. I wish I would have received your feelings before your wedding. It is never my intension to push any client off to the back burner and I execute every wedding to the best of my capability. I am very sorry your experience with me wasn't of your quality expectations.-Shell
