“Thu is one of the sweetest and most genuine person I’ve met in a long time. If you have been a bride, you know how hectic and overwhelming things can be. Well Thu made it very simple and easy for me. Sometimes brides do not know what they want or want too many things, Thu was very patient and practically read my mind. I was blown away on how beautiful my bridal bouquet and all the bridesmaids as well. Mine was very full and sturdy…i did throw it around many times throughout the day and it never fell apart. The reception was breath taking and so elegant, it was beyond what I envisioned and just made my day more perfect. Not only did thu take care of all the floral arrangements she took care of all the interior designing/decor. I believe without all of thu’s hard work, niche for perfection, and dedication my special day wouldn’t have turned out as flawless and wonderful as it did. Thank you again for everything Thu! Cheers to a life time of happiness.” ~Diana V.
“Planning a wedding from the other side of the country is no easy task. But thankfully to Thu, our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect. Thu knew the vision I had in mind for our wedding as soon as I started describing details. Her fresh and original approach to design is evident in everything she does as one can see from her background in styling, floral, and interior design. Guests even notice the little details that made our wedding unique to us and could not stop commenting how beautiful the wedding was. She has a wonderful personality and we couldn’t be more grateful for her on our wedding day.” ~Cindy T.
“What can I say, but SHE IS AMAZING. Her creative talent and beautiful floral design really captured the look I was going for on our wedding day. I think I saw a few jaws drop when they saw the trellis adorned with the most delicate and romantic white flowers. I can’t thank her enough for thinking of all the little details and making our day so special. She is so calm, collected, and professional, which made Phil and I trust her team wholeheartedly. Her and her team should be very proud of the work they have put forth because it meant the world to us.” ~Karen C.
“I think that any couple going into the process of planning their wedding is nervous. When we had our first meeting with Thu, all of those fears went away. She was professional, knowledgeable, and caring. She took our ideas and hopes and immediately molded them into a tangible concept. My husband and I were impressed by the high quality of service Lace and Stems provided. Thu was attentive to our numerous questions and requests. On the day of our wedding, we were absolutely blown away by our spring succulent centerpieces and grooms’ maids bouquets. They were absolutely everything we had wished and dreamed of, and even more. The quality and style were on point. We had guests fawning over them all night long. We are forever grateful for being introduced to Thu. ” ~Andy D.
“We cannot recommend Lace and Stems enough! Thu, at Lace and Stems, created the exact type of look we wanted for our wedding. We wanted it to be romantic, elegant, vintage, but not too flashy. She used flowers I had envisioned, and flowers I had never even heard of that were even more beautiful than my original idea. She met with us in person and made sure we were all on the same page. After one meeting with her, we were impressed with how professional and knowledgeable of floral designs she was, as well as her great attitude and warm smile. She made us feel confident that our wedding would look just the way we wanted. The day of the event I was even more in awe of her work. Our bouquets were gorgeous and the boutonnieres were intricate and wonderfully unique in their design to stand out, but not over power the groomsmen’s vests. The flowers surrounding our ceremony and reception were everything we talked about and more, it was the perfect elegant accent to our day. We love working with Thu and Lace and Stems! She’s amazing!!” ~Renee and Ben B.
“When I first met with Thu, we instantly clicked because she is the sweetest and most down to earth person. What I like about her is her modern approach to design and styling. Her experience with floral and interior design really shines through in her work. When I showed her some examples, including pieces she’s designed, she understood my vision and helped narrow things down so that it became a more cohesive theme. During the entire consultation and through our email exchanges, she was very kind and patient. She made sure to update me on the availability of flowers and addressed all of my questions. On our wedding day, Thu hand-delivered the bride and bridesmaid bouquets and I was blown away. It was BEYOND what I expected. The flowers were so beautiful! At the venue, Thu, beautifully set up the ceremony and the reception decor. I received countless compliments from my guests on the centerpieces and how elegant and romantic they looked. She helped bring my dream wedding to life and I cannot thank her enough! ~Carolyn L.
"I don’t even know where to start when it comes to speaking about Thu’s work. SHE. IS. AMAZING. I received a referral from my cousin who absolutely loved her work. I live in Riverside, but after looking through her website, I knew I had to take a chance and visit her in Costa Mesa (tooootally worth the drive!). Thu made our first meeting not only about her company and how she got started, but she wanted to know so much about me! She asked questions about how I met my husband, the proposal, and our lives as an engaged couple. I felt as if I was talking to my best girlfriend! It made our first meeting so much more enjoyable. My mom absolutely loved her (and she was more of the florist critic than I was!). So I was so happy to hear that my mom enjoyed our first meeting as well.
Thu made the process of choosing flowers, vases, and accessories so exciting and easy. She was quick to answer my questions, concerns, phone calls, texts, and emails. Being a bride who paid attention to the details, random questions would come up at random times of the day. And having Thu reply and address them so quickly definitely helped. Pricing was very fair. Her concerns about my budget made me feel like she really did care about every aspect that goes into choosing wedding vendors.
Thu’s passion for her work is CLEARLY seen in everything that she does. We absolutely loved the center pieces, the bouquets, the boutonnieres, EVERYTHING! They came out exactly how we had envisioned. Thu has a talent, and I’m glad she was able to share it with us on our special day. Thank you Thu, you’re the BOMB girl! "~Roxanne F.
