We create timeless designs using the highest quality blooms available. Our professionally curated experience and lush arrangements add a wow factor that'll leave you (and your guests) speechless. With a focus on only a handful of full-service weddings per year and intimate touches like homegrown blooms from our lead florist's personal garden, Detailed Floral Design is committed to creating exceptional events.
Charis, the Greek word for grace, was the inspiration behind my name. My parents wanted to something unique filled with meaning, complete with a personalized touch. In the same way, I believe your wedding flowers should be uniquely and personally tailored to your own style. I work tirelessly to create works of grace and excellence that bring joy and surpass our couples' dreams.
For me, Detailed Floral Design is not just a job or business, but an impactful way that I live out my calling. Each bloom, each petal and each of our couples are created so uniquely, it is my joy and privilege to bring together all the details and showcase them as a work of grace. I cannot wait to hear about your background, what inspires you, and the florals you envision for your incredibly special day.
Every week my mother carried a basket of homegrown roses to church. Her blossoms surprised and blessed friends and visitors alike for decades, teaching me at a young age how much love and joy flowers can bring. Every Saturday we visited my grandmother, and Mom always brought roses from her own garden, while I would collect and arrange flowers from Grandma’s garden too.
So many blooms punctuated my life – the flowers I made for my sister’s corsages in high school, the flowers I put in my friends’ hair at their weddings. In high school, I competed in floriculture (flower design and identification) competitions, which led me to become California state champion in 2002.
Just like flowers that bring joy for a season and then remain only in photos and memories, my life has been filled with seasons of both joy and loss. I love the teaching of Jesus that shows how much God cares about the flowers of the field, even if they are there one day and gone the next. It helps me to realize the value of life, the value of each individual, and the value of bringing joy to those who are celebrating and at other times empathy with those who mourn. Anyone wanting to share a burden or a prayer request is always welcome to email or call to connect for prayer whether or not you are looking for florals right now.

I am passionate about the lasting memories of homegrown wedding flowers. Featuring one or two homegrown varieties, supported by others that may be commercially available offers personal touch and dependability.
Karese is the most amazing florist I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I found her at a Bridal Show, about a year before my big day. I had been planning this wedding longer than I had actually been engaged, so I had a vision. Karese blew me away, she has so much knowledge and such patience with a Type A person like myself. My mom & sister planned my Bridal Shower for end of February 2020 and Karese did the flowers, they surprised me. I walked in and wanted to cry it was sooo beautiful. Every single detail, it was everything I could imagine and everything I am not creative enough to imagine. My Bridesmaids and Family fought to take the vases home at the end of the day!! Unfortunately, I ended up postponing my wedding due to COVID19 breaking out 2 weeks after my Bridal Shower. But, Karese stuck with me through 3 different date changes. Everytime she would meet with me and we'd discuss any changes. Karese has been so incredible, I am truly grateful to have been able to work with her. YOU WILL LOVE HER.
My daughter told me she was getting married…in a unkept backyard and I told her no way was that happening and completely took over planning a wedding. My time frame to put it all together was literally 5 days! One of the most stressful decisions was the bouquet and centerpieces for the tables. Detailed Floral Design met with us and in days she had it all together and went above and beyond anything I could have hoped for!! The bridal bouquet was exactly what I envisioned and she even made a small bouquet to throw and a corsage and boutonniere to match! It all looked amazing! The customer service was impeccable!! Thank you Detailed Floral Design!!
I was fortunate to be a guest at a wedding where Karese provided the flowers. The arrangements were stunning! I overheard numerous compliments about the flowers from the guests. They were hard to walk by without wanting to look further at the bouquets to see which flowers they contained. The flowers could be in a House Beautiful magazine or at Martha Stewart's home...they were that breathtaking. Karese is soft spoken, talented, patient and hard working in my observations of watching the venue being beautified. Detailed Floral Design gives the personal touch loaded with class and I would highly recommend this business.
Karese helped us with the centerpieces for our November fundraiser. She is a joy to work with and a week later, the flowers in the centerpiece are still beautiful. When we were trying to decide what flowers to add to help make our centerpiece beautiful, she brought several choices with her so we could decide what looked best well before the event. She delivered all 20 centerpieces with a smile & in a timely fashion. We look forward to working with her again next year...and I hope she is still providing flowers for weddings when our daughters get married!
