Ranch Events has a full service florist department offering custom wedding and event flowers and decor for your special occasion. From a small, intimate gathering to a large industry or corporate event, we can help bring your celebration to life.
We have a passion for floral design and for creating the best possible product and best overall look for each and every event. Our goal is to exceed your expectations and to have your family, friends and co-workers talking about your wedding or event for years to come. We are active in all forms of social media to stay in the pulse of every aspect of the wedding industry and to share our ideas and inspirations. We strive to achieve photo perfection. Every angle and close up of the floral should be fantastic. We understand that this is a monetary and emotional investment, so your floral and event design should stand the test of time. Each and every event design is customized to suit your personality and style.
As one of San Diego’s premier florists, we are honored to assist you with your special event. Our award winning designers at Ranch Events provide the expertise and unique creative perspective to make your day truly memorable. We offer complimentary consultations to discuss your ideas and to ensure the flowers and arrangements match your dreams and expectations. Our showroom is open to visitors by walk in or by appointment. Fill us in on how we can help you.
Our personalized consultations are conducted in-person or on the phone, based upon our client’s preferences to accommodate their busy schedules. Our in-person consultations generally last about an hour and are with our creative florists at our showroom in Marina Village. During the initial consultation we review our bride’s floral vision, needs and budget, discuss the venue, show samples of our work and give our creative input. We ask that our brides come to their initial consultation with as much information as possible including Pinterest boards, fabric and color swatches, magazine tear outs, and any other ideas that help us better understand what they are envisioning. Some brides come to us with very little in the way of inspiration and we are happy to offer our guidance and creative input. Just as each wedding is distinctive so is our customized design.
Approximately one week following our initial consultation, we provide our brides with a detailed proposal and accompanying, personalized design board. Upon approval of the proposal, a 25% deposit is due, with the balance due two weeks prior to the wedding. Once booked, we will schedule a walk-through of their venue, on a per request basis, to help them further visualize their floral décor. The site visit fee is available upon request and varies with the location. We also provide samples for our brides shortly before their wedding when their flowers are in season.
Sylvia, Thank you so much! You are great and so easy to work with. I loved EVERYTHING about the ceremony and reception. I did just get my wedding photos a couple of days ago and there are some beautiful pictures of the ceremony set up, centerpieces and all overall decorations
I will absolutely write you guys a review this weekend if you could send me the link to your Yelp I can go ahead and let everybody know how amazing and how special you all made Ryan and I's on our special day.
Kim, You have been an outstanding Florist & Decorator. Thank you for everything and I hope to continue our friendship once everything settles down. I will definitely refer you to my friends.
Kim & Sylvia, I didn’t want another day to go by without taking a moment to write you this note thanking you and your team for the most fantastic flowers for my daughter’s wedding! You all not only met, but exceeded our expectations for the day! You transformed the Seaside venue in marina village, which is already a beautiful setting for a wedding, into something that was magical and truly memorable. We are only too happy to spread the word about your company to all future brides that we know! You were all a pleasure to work with and the results of all of our planning and discussions couldn’t have been better! Thanks again!!!!!!
Once again, thank you. WE LOVED THE FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS! And they were beautiful! Thank you so much for pulling that together for us! I can imagine it was stressful on your part, since you were notified only 10 days before the wedding. Thank you again so much! We are forever grateful!
Sylvia and Kim were absolutely fabulous in every way! They were so easy to work with, and truly brought our vision to life through listening to our needs as well as incorporating their artistic talent. Ranch Events made the wedding look magical! When guests walked into the room they were in awe. The centerpieces, the arch, the aisle, and card table were absolutely perfect in every way!
The entire atmosphere at Liya and Ross’s wedding was just beautiful and the flowers really set the tone. The arch was beautiful and it really made the romantic, whimsical theme of the evening come to life. The bridal bouquet and all the flower arrangements were gorgeous as well.
I wanted to thank you for your beautiful work you did. David and I were beyond thrilled. Everything was so beautiful. Our guests were in awe!! We can’t thank you enough!!! You’re the best. Thank you again for making our vision a reality. Everything was beyond perfect.
The day of the wedding I didn’t have to worry about a thing. The INCREDIBLE flowers for the wedding party were delivered to our hotel, setup at the church and the reception venue was flawless. All night people were telling me how much they loved our floral arrangements. I would recommend Ranch Events because they have creative floral ideas, they are responsive (which is hard to find these days), they work with your budget and they are great people.
We were pleased & satisfied with the service. The floral arrangements satisfactorily met our expectations; all the centerpieces and the bouquet. Other arrangements were also up to the level. We really think your work was overall classy & elegant. We would choose Ranch Events again without hesitation on future occasions.
Have a general idea about your taste. Are you a true minimalist? Or are you looking to do an uber-romantic Gatsby-style wedding? Create a file of magazine tear-outs and ideas you find online. That will give us a clear idea of your loves and love-nots. And don’t forget shots from friends’ weddings. Maybe you flipped over the centerpieces, but hated the bouquets. Now’s the time to bring it up (to us, of course, and not your friend).
This is a biggie. Think of your reception site as a blank canvas on which we will create your masterpiece. Is there bright red wallpaper? Is it a botanical garden that won’t need much floral accent? Or are you starting with a clean, empty loft that will need lots of work? After our initial consultation we will accompany you to the venue to get an idea of its size and style.
Before you even start thinking about flowers, decide what your bridesmaids, groomsmen, and moms are wearing. You won’t know what flowers to pick if you don’t know what colors will work. First tackle the attire, then choose your ideal color palette and make a list of your favorite flowers, and then we will work with you to create your unique flower scheme.
At this point, you should have already picked out or know the style of your bridal gown, seeing as that will dictate what kind of bouquet you should carry. In making our suggestions, a bride’s gown is a big factor — how ornate it is, whether it’s white or cream, if it’s classic or contemporary, and so on. We think of the gown and bride of course as the centerpiece of the day, so this will give you a good idea of where you’re going with the wedding style.
Your style is different than your vision. Are you looking to carry a very dramatic, long bunch of flowers or a tight posy of blooms instead? How about the other people in your wedding party: Should Mom wear a corsage or carry a nosegay? Should the bridesmaids carry a single stem or a full bouquet? Style will also affect price accordingly, as well as the choice of flowers that will or won’t work in the type of bouquet you’re eyeing.
Size does matter! How many guests are you planning to have at your wedding? That number will determine how many tables and, consequently, how many centerpieces you’ll require. How many attendants will you have to outfit with flowers: groomsmen, bridesmaids, flower girls? This will dramatically impact the price. On the other hand, if you are requiring fewer than average centerpieces, you may be able to get those orchids that you swore you couldn’t live without.
