Ceremony Flowers

When thinking about your wedding ceremony flowers, there are many factors to consider. The first, and most important consideration is that of tradition. There are so many beautiful wedding rituals that are rooted in one’s traditions, heritage, background and family history. Think about you and your spouse-to-be and how these rituals may or may not play a role on your big day. And remember, the common thread in all wedding rituals is celebrating unity!

how do we get started?

Yay! You found us, and we're so glad you did! Please complete our Wedding Consultation Form which will immediately give us an overview of your floral needs and wishes. You will hear from us within 24 hours (usually way sooner) to get started!

Wedding Chuppah

A traditional Jewish wedding structure, under which two people are married. The Chuppah represents a home with 4 poles and a cover over the top. With the walls being open on all sides, this represents hospitality to one’s guests. We have decorated chuppah’s in so many different ways from simple fabric draping with elegant floral tie backs, to fully covered top and legs with gorgeous blooms spilling to the floor.

Wedding Arch or Wedding Arbor

Similar to the chuppah, the arch also represents the home (or I like to see it as a threshold of a doorway) It’s origin is non-denominational so it can be transformed in any way imaginable. When an arch or arbor is outdoors, we love matching the florals to the natural landscape around it, as if it’s been standing there for years and years, and perfectly in bloom for a wedding. Weave in some of the colors chosen in your wedding palette to make it tie together beautifully.

Freestanding Pedestaled Floral Arrangements or Low Natural Florals

These are an amazing choice when you have a stunning backdrop, like an ocean view, mountain vistas, or beautiful gardens. Create a half circle of low florals around you to symbolize the alter, or bring in multi-height pedestal stands to hold striking statement florals on either side of you. Extra perks with this selection as they are easily reusable to carry over into the reception area after the “I Do’s”.

Work with what you’ve got!

We are so spoiled in Southern California with some of the most stunning outdoor spaces imaginable. If you feel like veering away from tradition, utilize a gorgeous Oak tree to be married under, where we can hang florals  from above, or design a natural floral treatment meandering up the trunk of the tree as your alter’s backdrop.

    5 star rating Working with Toby and the team at Lilla Bello Studio is both painless and incredibly fun. Toby is the perfect person to brainstorm with who will then get back to you with multiple ideas at multiple price points based on a combination of her expertise and the information you give her. And her team, whether they are just delivering something for you or actually creating centerpieces and decor on site, is always prepared and wiling to go the extra mile to make you look great. And I know that firsthand.

    5 star rating Lilla Bello is a hidden treasure worth finding! My first experience with Toby (owner and master floral designer) was for Mother's Day. I told her my mother's favorite flower and she made the most beautiful and unique arrangement incorporating that flower. Mom loved it!

    I have requested florals since and Toby has always amazed me with truly stunning arrangements and the recipients loved them!

    5 star rating I've ordered flower arrangements twice from Lilla Bello for my company, and have been blown away by the outstanding service and breathtaking arrangements. I truly mean breathtaking. Last week we gifted a jewel-toned flower arrangement to our head creative for her birthday. She had tears streaming down her face when I gave it to her!

    When you order from their website for delivery, you can choose from a few price points (the lowest, $75, was huge so I can't even imagine the beauty of the more expensive ones), then you choose the color scheme (they are all inspiring), and then the vase style (there's a florists choice option). You can also make specific requests for flowers and write notes to the florist.

    For my first order, I went with the delivery option. The delivery was quick and went smoothly. The second order was a pick up, and I am so lucky that it was! The shop is a bit confusing to find in the Bergamot Station area, but they walked me through it (and there's a big map when you drive in to the parking area). Their shop is absolutely gorgeous! It's like what a fairy's dreams look like. I can't wait to go back for more orders!

    5 star rating We had the pleasure of doing business with Lilla Bello as they were the florists/designers for our wedding in August. My wife found them after doing extensive research online and meeting with a couple other florists her friends had recommended. We met Tasha and the team at Lilla Bello and after our first meeting knew we were in good hands. Having high quality beautiful flowers was top of the list for my wife and their product is incredible! Let's face it, there are a lot of great florists in and around the LA area but I think what sets Lilla Bello apart is just how much they cared about making our  wedding so great. Everyone we dealt with had a positive attitude and very helpful in giving us ideas and working with our budget. 5 stars for sure for Lilla Bello and a life long customer and now friend for sure!

    5 star rating This is a long overdue review about this amazing florist.  I found them from an internet search.  I live in another state and my daughter, who was turning 21, lives in the LA area.  I spoke with one of the designers who listened and helped interpret what I wanted to send, and I was thrilled.  The flowers arrived at her work, on time with no issues, and they are one of the most beautiful arrangements I've ever seen.  (And for sure the best I've ever sent.)  They are on the expensive side but worth every penny.  I just wished I lived closer so I could order more often.  (the brain of a busy Mom...I did actually already post a review but that is how much I was impressed by their work.  I order and have ordered so many flowers through the years and I have never posted a review about any before this.  Can't wait to need to order more in the LA area:)  Pardon my repeat but you can never compliment too much!)

    5 star rating Toby is as kind and helpful as a person can be.  She put together a rush bouquet for us (rush as in ready in a couple of hours) and was so unbelievably accommodating to our needs.  Thank you Yelp for helping me find her, and thank you Toby for such amazing attention.  

    You will NOT be disappointed with Lilla Bello.

    5 star rating Our wedding photos are beyond gorgeous thanks to Toby's gorgeous designs and florals!!!!!  

    Lilla Bello designed our entire wedding decor and our wedding turned out to be nothing short of breathtaking. Our centerpieces and reception hall decor were lush, bright, smelled sooooo good, and were of course, gorgeous.

    My bouquet was my absolute favorite. OMG It was beyond stunning and looks amazing in all the photos. It was what I was most picky about besides my hair and Toby knew exactly what to design when I just gave her a few hints of what I wanted.

    Toby is a floral/design/wedding PRO and Lilla Bello is the best in the industry!!!!!

    5 star rating I connected with Toby at Lilla Bello through the Bridal Bar and I'm so very thankful for their referral.  Toby was great and she was the only florist to provide me an estimate right after our first meeting.  She took the time to walk me through it and she was always prompt with updates.  I already had very specific ideas as to what I wanted, but I was happy to have Toby's expert opinion on editing out a few internet purchases I made in the wee hours of the night, convinced I wouldn't have enough decor at the wedding.  I was happy for the anti-glitter paper intervention (in my defense, it did look pretty when I ordered it on-line at 3am).

    On the big day, Toby came to my hotel suite while we were getting ready to bring me my bouquet (it was gorgeous) and I was thrilled to see her smiling face.  I must admit, the (control-freak) bride in me wanted to go off to the reception site with her to see how things were shaping up.  But I managed to control my impulses since no one wants to see a bride in a robe.  

    When my new husband and I walked into our reception, it was stunning.  Not only did the flowers look amazing, but Toby had really taken the care to stylize the decor.  She arranged the votives, candelabras, crystals, etc. into little vignettes and charming little feasts for the eye.  Every room of the venue had special touches and felt perfectly romantic - never under or over done.

    Yes, Lilla Bello is more costly than average, but what you get is so much more than flowers placed in a venue.  You get style and taste, all from the sweetest person who is always smiling.  Everything Toby put together was beautiful.

    5 star rating If I could give 10 stars I would!

    I am lucky enough to be a neighbor to Lilla Bello and have used them more than 50 times over the past year and a half. I have never been disappointed, and always get the most kind and flattering thank you notes from the recipients of their arrangements. The owner/staff/employees are the friendliest people with impeccable taste and quality. Similar to my star rating, if I had all they money in the world, I would buy literally everything in their store. It is gorgeous.

    On top of that, their arrangements are exotic and unique, and they are very reasonably priced, responsive and punctual. I guess by now you get the point -- I am an absolute super fan and recommend this shop to anyone and everyone. 🙂

    5 star rating It kills me that it took this long to write a review. But better late than never!

    Toby and her crew are absolutely incredible! I came to Toby with an idea in my head of what I wanted my wedding to look like and she made it come to life 1000x better than I could have ever imagined. She did a great job dealing with a stressed bride and family members with opinions and was great to work with from start to finish. The amazing flowers and out of this world chuppah are still talked about by guests a year and a half later and I'm sure for years to come. Can't thank Toby and staff enough!
