SHOCKED ON REVIEWS.
WOW!! I REFERRED KEVIN TO A FRIEND RECENTLY AND WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR WHAT SHE HAD READ ABOUT HIM.I BOOK KEVIN FOR MY MAY 07 WEDDING.I COULD TELL HE WAS JITTERY AND COULDN'T STAY STILL OR HIGHLY MEDICATED.I COULDNT IMAGINE WHAT YOU GUYS WENT THROUGH.IM THANKFUL I HAD A POSITIVE TURN OUT BUT I WOULD NEVER RECCOMEND HIM AGAIN!!
HE DOES BEAUTIFUL ARRANGEMENTS BUT SAD TO KNOW HOW HE'S AN UNRELIABLE FLAKE.
No Delivery. Like everyone else here... I was shafted by Kevin for my 6/30/07 wedding. I'm going to try and do something about it. I'd love to hear other stories and try to get a group together to see about at least stopping this from continuing to happen! please email me at ivgirlie at gmail dot com. Thanks and I'm sorry if this has happened to you as well!
HIGHLY not recommended.... My wedding is next month and I can't get a hold of him. His cell phone got disconnected. Will look for another florist tomorrow. DO NOT use this guy...
DO NOT TRUST A WORD THAT COMES OUT OF THIS MAN?S MOUTH. IF YOU INSIST ON HIRING HIM VISIT HIS OFFICE ON A DAY HE HAS A WEDDING AND WATCH HIM UNRAVEL.
1.HE WILL NOT DELIVER YOUR FLOWERS ON TIME IF AT ALL.
2. HE WILL NOT RETURN YOUR PHONE CALLS AFTER YOUR WEDDING
3..HE ALSO HAS A DOMESTIC RESTRAINING ORDER ON HIM BECAUSE HE THREATED HIS WIFE(SONIE) AND CHILDREN (HE HAS TWO DAUGHTERS)
My brother and his wife got married on Saturday, 6/9/07. They had several meetings with him regarding the flower arrangements and of course paid him in advance. On the day of the wedding, he failed to bring the bouquets and boutonniere. I went over to his shop & found him ?out-of-it.? I started working on the bouquets corsages & boutonnieres with some of his ?staff.? I am not a florist but did the best I could. Needless to say, I left with a few arrangements. Kevin promised me he would have the rest of the flowers arrangements delivered at the ceremony site by 11:30 a.m. The wedding was at 1 p.m. and Kevin was no where. I found Kevin curled up in a ball, moaning & medicated @his store. I screamed like a banshee. It worked bc he got up & created some flower arrangements. Unfortunately, they were not what my sister-in-law ordered. But we had ?some? flowers nonetheless, though a majority of them were dead and wiltered. We also paid him an extra $250 to have him transport the flowers(ceremony site to the restaurant). The wedding party & my mother had to do that!
I've spoken to Kevin numerous times. He acknowledges ruining several weddings bc of his lack on professionalism. He doesn't care! Money is not an issue; it is simply principle. The wedding industry (Coyote Hills, Orange County Mining Company, etc) con't to allow him to be at ?wedding expos? cognizant that he is irresponsible. Don?t hire him. He is untrustworthy & irresponsible.
Wedding NO SHOW. This florist, Kevin, received full payment and did not show up to our friends wedding on 6/16/07. We hear he has been doing a lot of this around town, and would like to find other people that he has stolen from too. Please email me at munchersmom@yahoo com. He needs to be stopped, but he is continuing to take orders and collect money!!!!
DON'T TRUST THIS PERSON!!. BEWARE!! MY WEDDING WAS HELD ON LAST JUNE 30TH. I WAS RECOMENDED BY ORANGE MINING CO. TO USED FLOWER BY KEVIN BECAUSE IT WAS INCLUDED WITH OUR PACKAGE. KEVIN WAS NEVER SHOWED UP UNTIL NOW, AND NEVER RETURNS ANY CALLS . I GOT THE FLOWERS BUT, THE PARTY DELAYED BECAUSE THEY WERE 2 HRS LATE . MY WEDDING PICTURES WASN'T THAT NICE BECAUSE THE FLOWERS ARN'T NICE AT ALL. WE PAID HIM FULL ALREADY, BUT A LOT OF THINGS HE PROMISE ME THAT DIDN'T HAPPENED . DO NOT USE THIS GUY. HE WORKS ONLY BY HIM SELF, CAN MANAGE HIS OWN BUSSINESS. WEDDING IS ONLY FOR ONCE IN A LIFETIME BELIEVE ME . DO NOT USE THIS GUY NO MATTER WHAT. !!!!!!!
My Nightmare with Flowers by Kevin. My wedding was on 6/2/07. We were highly recommended by our venue to go with Flowers by Kevin. We saw his work & it was beautiful. We met with Kevin & paid everything in full. Needless to say, he did not show up on my wedding day however he did send a few flowers by CAB to my venue. The flowers that he did send were not what we ordered. My wedding was delayed because of this. I called him on my wedding day and til this day I have still not heard from him. I guess from what I have read I am lucky to get the few flowers that I did get. I just want to WARN all future brides to NOT BOOK with Flowers by Kevin. He will just take your money and ruin your special day! We are currently in the process of taking legal action against him. Please don't let this happen to you.
Beautiful Ideas No Delivery. BEWARE AND DO NOT USE THIS FLORIST. Although Kevin could return our calls, meet with us, and take our money, he never returned calls to coordinators of the church or reception sites. He took his full payment Monday afternoon -cashed our check on Tuesday AND NEVER SHOWED UP FOR WEDDING ON SATURDAY 6/16. His voice mail is full. We have not heard from him. Needless to say, the bride and groom were distraught and the wedding was delayed while the father of bride and a friend ran to Conroy's to make a bouquet. There were no center pieces for reception or flowers for bridesmaids. Sad thing is he came highly recommeded. He must be losing it ...don't be a victim and have a sad bride. Mother of the Bride.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
He did not SHOW UP to my sister's wedding this last SATURDAY! HE did NOT CALL, he did not respond to any phone calls. EVERYONE was trying to get a hold of him and no luck. The ceremony was at 5pm at the Nixon Library and his assistant ran her bridal bouquet over at 5:15pm. They are 10 minutes away from the shop and the groomsmen even tried to go there. No communication whatsover. They came withe a few centerpieces around 10:30PM and then gave us our bridesmaids bouquets at 11:30PM. We couldn't believe it.
Thank goodness, the Nixon Library is beautiful as it is, but seriously how could you not show up to a wedding. Even if you don't show up, you have people working for you that should be able to show up. The weird thing was my sister's husband went to his shop on Thursday and saw all the flowers there. But he didn't even have the courtesy to call or do anything. I'm not even sure what to do or say. Just makes me very upset and sad for my sister, but I'm lucky she took it so well and was not affected by it at all.
SO brides, please save yourself the trouble and DO NOT USE HIM and if you booked him, please reconsider. The funny thing is I used him over 1 1/2 years ago and referred him. I feel so bad. Sad that it turned out like this. =(
