I hate to say this – but I went through the same hassle (sounds incredibly similiar!!) with them this past year.   I had my heart set on using them and finally (after weeks of follow up) got them to follow through.  I had my wedding recently and my flowers were gorgeous, BUT there were problems.  The flowers used were NOT what I was quoted (some I specifically did not want used WERE, the main flowers I wanted WERE NOT).  Delivery & setup was late.  Like I said, the flowers were still beautiful and my guests didn’t notice anything was off (well, other than the guests that showed up early and were worried about the ceremony not being setup in time).  BUT, it was not exactly what was quoted out to me and I was diappointed.  

I hope you don’t have any more stress with vendor selection!  I had some great ones in Santa Barbara – if you want referrals just let me know.  There are alot of very talented professionals in SB  and I’m sure you’ll find them!

I also had issues with Nico Designs. I called repeatedly to get my quote and was told several times I would get it by the end of the day or the next day. After a few weeks I just stopped calling and never got any email or phone call from them. I am sure his work is great but his customer service is horrible.

I ended up going with Gelsons (Yes! Gelsons the grocery store) and was sooo happy with how everything turned out.

I used Juniper Presence from Santa Barbara.  She’s small, works out of her home, but her work was BEAUTIFUL.  I was soo happy with what she gave us, I’d recommend her to anyone.
