We had the most beautiful day of our loves at our wedding.  You made it beautiful for us!  The cake, the rose petals, all the floral arrangements were just lovely.  We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU very much!

I can’t even begin to describe how much I appreciate what you and your team did for our wedding.  You really put forth the effort and the result was a beautiful wedding and a fabulous time for everyone who attended.  The beautiful flowers and all the details that you thought about and suggested…like the dancers!  Everyone that attended can’t compliment me enough as to how elegant, classy and fully entertaining it was to be a guest at our wedding.  It was a good time for all and no amount of money can be enough for what you did…The CD’s are awesome…EVERYTHING was GREAT!

Please accept my thanks for all your hard work on Scott’s 60th birthday party.  I realize this is your job but I also know how much of your personal effort it included.Thank you for the wonderful time…THANK YOU for the wonderful memory!  It’s unforgettable event for Scott & I.


Thank you so much for the wonderful flowers at my wedding.  All my guests commented on how beautiful the floral arrangements were; I agree: they looked AMAZING!!  Also, thank you for mentioning to me that I can preserve my wedding bouquet.  If you hadn’t mentioned it I would have just thrown it in the trash.  So now I am so excited to have it forever.


One of the more personable and elegant party planners out there! Our events were executed exactly to our specifications and then some!! Nel blew our minds with her attention to detail and flower arrangements!  She was the coordinator and florist at our engagement party and Santa Barbara wedding. She blew us away and gave us memories to last a life time. If any of you need a party planner for any type of gathering, she's your gal! Whether it be a Halloween themed bash, Birthday Blow out, anniversary party...etc. I could go on! She'll make all of your outlandish visions come true!

Happiest day of my life!  Thank you for making it magical!

Sophisticated Parties was one of the preferred vendors my venue gave me.  I chose to call Nel first and she blew me away on the phone by being informative and answering all my silly questions. Naturally, I made an appointment so that my fiancée and I could meet with her in-person and go over all my concerns and needs. I did make an appointment with another florist/coordinator just to have another option.


 We nervously arrived to our meeting with Nel.  My fiancée and I were very concerned knowing that we had a fixed budget for our wedding and assumed we may have to haggle price not to mention we both have families that are a bit hard to handle and prove to be a challenge for most people. To our surprise, Nel was very welcoming and it quickly put us at ease.  Nel has an intoxicating personality and the passion for her work shows…she was prepared, patient, informative, creative and willing to work with our budget without hesitation. She made sure we knew exactly what were getting for our money.


We did go see another florist/coordinator the following day but it became very clear to us that Nel (Sophisticated Parties) was the florist and coordinator for our wedding.


We have received so many compliments from our family and guests on how beautiful our ceremony and reception looked…It was everything we wanted and more!!  She did a fantastic job and even with our hard-to-handle family! 

Without hesitation we would pick Nel 100x over for any event.  No one will see your vision as clearly as Nel and make it come to fruition (it’s as if she can read your mind!) and all within your budget!


Thank you, Nel! You made our wedding day PERFECT!
