We will forever be in love with all of our floral arrangements from our wedding day! Madeleine is beyond creative and truly deserves all the praise in the world for her beautiful work. 
When we started down the path of figuring out what I wanted for flowers, I felt completely lost. I reached out to a few florists and felt as though a lot of them were trying to tell me I needed to know exactly what I wanted up front. Problem was, my thoughts were all over the place and I needed some guidance. As soon as I got in touch with Madeleine I immediately felt at ease and the process was seamless! I knew I wanted an eclectic look with greenery incorporated. I showed her the colors of my bridesmaids’ dresses and she transformed my not so clear visions into a breathtaking array of greenery and blooms! She created our bouquets, flower crowns, boutonnieres, ceremony arbor/arch, ceremony aisle way, centerpieces and every little detail was stunning. I didn’t realize I would become so obsessed and attached to my bouquet, but it was the biggest and most beautiful arrangement I had ever seen. I felt like a flower goddess. When Madeleine delivered our bouquets and crowns, each had a cute tag with her own handwritten calligraphy and she wrote me the sweetest note. On top of everything, she also went out of her way to make arrangements for us to use some of the flowers for the centerpieces the night before at our rehearsal dinner. Madeleine was an awesome communicator throughout the entire process, she sent me check in emails as well as ideas to build off of. We also really appreciated how quickly she got back to us with a quote so we could get a ballpark understanding of where we were at budget wise. She was so patient with me and continually made updates to our contract as I found myself wanting to add things in here and there. Aside from her insane talent, professionalism and expertise, Madeleine is SO much fun to be around and work with. She’s sweet, spunky and her personality shines through her artwork. We cannot thank Madeleine enough for making our wedding day so special and dreamy. We would highly recommend Botanicamuse for ALL of your wedding florist needs!

Madeleine the fearless owner of Botanicamuse is what I call passionate and my husband and were honored with her work for our wedding day. She is passionate for life, love, and all pretty things that grow from the earth. She listens to you and what you are looking for, but creates pieces of artwork so eloquent; it’s more than your dreams can ever create. I think as a bride, when you are finding your vendors, trust is a huge portion of finding who will be the right fit for what you are looking for. Madeleine is so honest and pure in what she does, I trusted her with everything. All I gave her was the color palette I was looking for. She went above and beyond ANYTHING I could have ever imagined for that special day. I don’t believe Madeleine is just a florist for your wedding or event; she is an artist sculpting a space to make it flow, stand out, and swoon anyone witnessing it. As I have said above passionate is the perfect word to describe Madeleine when it comes to her business. Her passion shines through what she does, and she creates pieces that are something out of a dream. She is honest and fair in her pricing and opinions to make sure everything will look right, and she made our wedding complete with her art. I am forever grateful for what she contributed to that day because it was more than perfect and more than what any word could ever describe. Don’t just choose Botanicamuse for your event, trust Madeleine with the task to create wonderful stand out pieces. Her work will forever jump out from our wedding photos and make me still in awe of how special she helped make our day.

Oh, Madeleine, Madeleine, Madeleine... girl is a genius. My husband and I were wed in a beautiful and intimate ceremony with family in La Jolla in February. The care, the craft, the beauty... Her pieces are truly exceptional, and I knew I wanted to work with her prior to speaking/booking. Through the planning process, she was communicative, professional, and a delight to talk to. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early to set up florals and garland in the chapel, and met with my family and me in the bridal room to present the bouquet, boutonnières, and corsages prior to first look.When she handed me my bouquet... good grief! We're talkin' ALL the heart-eye, praise hand emojis. I would HIGHLY recommend Botanicamuse for event florals. Madeleine is a flower wizard and I'm so grateful to have experienced a bit of her magic on that truly magical day.

Madeleine did the florals for my wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. She was so easy to work with--personable, attentive, and communicative. She is straight forward and asked lots of questions to really get a grasp of what I wanted and then suggested her own ideas of how to make my personal vision even better! From our first phone conversation I knew that I wanted her to be a part of my wedding! She is creative and original, her work is beautiful! I've gotten so many compliments from guests about our wedding flowers.

I never knew anything about flowers or really even cared about flowers until I met Madeleine. Now I am absolutely obsessed with beautiful blooms! Her floral designs are magical and totally made my wedding. We got married at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and her designs stood out among the lush environment without overwhelming it. The whole night people were coming up to me in awe of the florals. She is fabulous to work with and was somehow able to completely understand my floral dreams without me realizing I had any! Not only were her designs to die for, but she was also so accommodating and was able to come up with creative ways to work with my budget. Madeleine is an incredibly talented and sweet designer and I am so grateful that I got to work with her. Don't pass up the opportunity to work with her if you can, just be warned that you'll end up with a lifelong flower obsession!

Madeleine was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is understanding and easy to talk to, especially if you are unsure about exactly what you want.  I trusted her vision and experience and she really delivered a beautiful display of greenery for my wedding day. I would highly recommend working with her if you have the opportunity to!

Madeleine was an absolute dream to work with! From the start, she was communicative, professional, and quick to respond. Beyond that, she's just a lovely down to earth person that has a wonderful eye and is a true artist! She had so many creative ideas to take our wedding to the next level and the best decision I made was to tell her to go for it! The floral arrangements were phenomenal-they fit the venue and our style perfectly and were extremely unique.

I highly recommend Botanicamuse for a wedding florist - I had such a great experience working with Madeleine and my wedding florals turned out to be exactly what I hoped for!  Madeleine is a quick communicator, really listens to what you want and has a way of really creating your vision for your wedding day.  What I appreciated most was the initial consult call where Madeleine asked questions about me and helped me to figure out what I hoped my wedding day would look like.  She also was incredible about working with me to stay within our budget.  Madeleine was great about making changes when needed and also offering great ideas and suggestions that made the day so beautiful.  I highly recommend Madeleine and Bontanicamuse!
