Ames Haus was asked to showcase our Event Design, Wedding Planning Services, and Floral Design for the Real Weddings Magazine Summer/Fall 2018. So we conceptualized and then coordinated six looks to display at the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento, CA for the editorial. It was a pleasure working with Real Weddings Magazine on the print ad.
Here is a clip of one of the models sharing her experience. Have a look at our concepts while she speaks and then look for the still shots in our wedding gallery.
It was an honor to be a featured designer for the California State Floral Association and the California Cut Flower Commission.
This feature was filmed in Spring of 2017 and then ran on a continuous loop at the California State Fair ( Cal Expo, Sacramento, CA) later that year. It was an infomercial to educate fair-goers about the variety of flowers that are grown in California and how designers use them. Only California grown flowers were used to make the beautiful arrangement.
Here is the second video shot by the California State Floral Association and the California Cut Flower Commission.
This video was also distributed across the state and was featured during the 2017 State Fair at Cal-Expo in Sacramento, CA.
A materialistic asymmetrical design is shown. California flowers, foliage and feathers were used. We are thankful for the opportunity to showcase Ames Haus designs and represent the Golden State.
Ariana from Ames Haus is literally amazing. She went over and beyond for my husband and I. My wedding was September 7, 2018....and with her touches it was beautiful!
She creates an online vision board with all the colors and themes you think you want at your wedding (pictures you send to her and ones she thinks fit with your colors and theme) and you can edit what you like and what you don't like. She put together a mini bouquet so I had a visual right in front of me with the flowers and colors I wanted. She also came to the venue to meet the coordinators there and helped with asking questions that were important and I would never have thought to ask! She even followed up with a list for me!
The day of my wedding she arrived with all the bouquets, boutonnieres, arch piece and center pieces and I was in LOVE! Absolutely gorgeous! And everything was EXACTLY how I envisioned. I also purchased some tulle that she incorporated with the beautiful flowers and into the arch design.
She has someone that helped out with table numbers, seating chart and welcome sign, which turned out perfect! Everything was delivered to the venue on rehearsal night so I was able to see the end result in person. She also took time to help with the last minute minutia like spray painting the frames and table number holders so that everything matched beautifully!
She was so patient with me through all of my interactions with her, you can tell this is her passion and she excels at what she does! Her work is absolutely stunning and hands down the best place I could have chosen to do the flowers for my wedding! I highly, highly recommend Ariana from Ames Haus! - Tiffany G. (September 25, 2018)
Without any reservations, I want to recommend Ariana of Ames Haus to anyone needing a floral designer, event planner, friend or advice nurse!!!!
From the moment my daughter-in-law, Tiffanie and I met Ariana, I knew she was right for us. After a brief phone conversation she came amazingly prepared to our first meeting, at her lovely store front, in Roseville. Based on her phone conversation with Tiffanie, she brought a sampling of lovely blooms and staged different scenarios. As we talked, Ariana intently listened, molding our tastes with her expertise and artistry. It was then that I realized why Ariana is so special. She truly respects every bride's vision and preferences and wants them to have the wedding of their dreams. She is so gifted that I think she can create beauty from any vision presented to her; she is the quintessence of a professional. It was at our first meeting that I knew we were in business!
It is quite apparent she loves what she does. Throughout the process, she made us feel we were her most important clients! She truly was very excited to be part of Tiffanie's and my son's Big Day. We were treated like VIPs, but more importantly, like friends are suppose to treat each other. Ariana was our event coordinator, as well as creating all the bouquets and floral arrangements. She had resources for everything, and her referrals were absolutely the best. She is so intuitive; she picked up on our every need-imagined or unimagined and offered her services or found a solution for us. She supported us when we needed to cut corners, even giving us suggestions on how to do so. Ariana gave us her time, her love, and her inspiration.
As it turned out, my daughter-in-law and son turned me lose with Ariana to create their dream wedding. In the process I learned to trust and admire her artistry, professionalism, honesty and dedication. After months of planning their dream came to fruition. The bride and groom were thrilled with the results!!! The stage was set and what a party we had!
The flowers were beautiful and everything we planned and hoped for was implemented. Ariana delivered for us.
Thank you so very much.

Ames Haus is a pleasure to work with and we very much look forward to having them assist us with our next event. Thank you Ames Haus!!!! - Peter C. (July 22, 2018)
Firstly, thank you to both you and Anthony for everything you did to help make my mother's birthday extra special. I've just skyped with her and she is over the moon about the flowers, the card and the banner. And she was very surprised! She kept telling me how beautiful the flowers are and how many flowers are in the arrangement and how she loves the colors and flowers you chose. She said it is one of the nicest arrangements she's ever seen.
Thank you both so very much for everything - I really appreciate it and I know my mother is going to show all of her friends (some were just visiting) and she told me she is going to tell her friends about your floral arrangements.
With many thanks,
Harold - Sydney, Australia August 15, 2018
It was a pleasure meeting and doing business with you. You got up to speed super fast in a very short period of time and did an amazing job. Everything was perfect and everyone had a blast, hope you had fun and enjoyed the party as well.
Once a again Thank you from the bottom of my heart I am so glad I found you and I am sure we will with you again in the future.
Thank You!!!!" - Manjia R. , Concord, CA (2017)
"Ariana is amazing and so kind. I showed her a couple pictures of what I was thinking for wedding bouquet, boutinerres and some floral arrangements for my ceremony. She asked me some questions and the day of she delivered them to me. They were perfect! I couldn't have been happier. You can tell she loves her job and her clients. Thanks Ariana!" - Laura F., Los Angeles, CA (2017)
Ariana is the best! She provided the floral arrangements for my November 5th wedding. Her work is beautiful. Her professionalism is even better. As a stressed bride, she made picking my flowers and designs so relaxing. She checked in on me multiple times after booking and made me really comfortable about my wedding day choices. On my wedding day, she showed up early. She set up and hand delivered me my bouquets. They took my breath away. I would recommend her a trillion times. - Cydnee B., Sacramento, CA (2017)
"I was so filled with grateful emotion the moment I saw the flowers that Ariana designed and arranged for my daughter Katie and her husband Austin's wedding reception! She delivered them personally and then continued to design special arrangements on special signs we had made for the event ... her detail to original design and a very technical ability ends up with arrangements that look and feel like they are created just for you. I will continue to recommend Ariana ... her experience and expertise is blended with the perfect touch of the moment and her instinct to create leads her arrangements to be exactly what you had hoped for." -Cathy B., Roseville, CA
Ariana and her staff do very creative and original work! I enjoy seeing what she will come up with next. Always sensitive to our requests also. Everything she has done for us has been beautiful!" -Mary L., Santa Rosa, CA
"I am so so happy I found Ariana! She is a joy to work with and went above and beyond for our wedding. She promptly responded to my inquiries throughout the planning process and met with us on several occasions to discuss our flower options. We were a little indecisive about the style of our decor and she gave great advice on what would work best and also helped us with table setting and alter ideas. The wedding party flowers were delivered on schedule and absolutely gorgeous. The alter piece she made was an absolute dream. Ariana is a true artist and professional. I highly recommend her!!" -Erika N. , Sacramento, CA
Ariana has an eye for detail that result in a creative, timeless and simply gorgeous floral work of art. The service her and her team provided were nothing like I've ever experienced. They are extraordinary. I've heard the saying many times "leave it to the experts" and that's what I did. Believe me when I say they are indeed experts. Thank you Ames Haus for making the day of a very special lady. She loved her florals. - Jennifer B., Wildomar, CA (2016)
I am so very thankful I found Ames Haus! Ariana was absolutely amazing through the entire process! I had let her know up front that we were funding our wedding and working with a pretty strict budget for florals, but that I love fresh flowers and we were hoping to make our florals our "decorations" since we are both pretty simple and wanted the natural beauty of fall to be our "decor".
She worked closely with us to really nail down our "vision", and when we met in late summer she actually had a mock up (using real/gorgeous flowers!) and allowed us to take the centerpiece home. That blew me away! In late August I had a bit of a change in my vision due to bridesmaid dresses, and I expressed my concern (lighter colors, etc). She knew the exact fix, and the bouquets were breathtaking.
When she delivered the boquets to the hotel, they nearly brought me to tears (I already had makeup done so I couldn't cry!) They were beyond my expectations, and just perfect! When I arrived at the reception, she had also gone WAY above and beyond by providing chair florals (which were not within our budget) and also had prepared a "special" head table centerpiece. I had multiple people ask for her information, and without hesitation I would recommend for any event! She was such a nice person to work with, and her product was just beyond perfect! I'm sure there is so much more behind he scenes I don't even know about (I got word she stayed to help set out the centerpieces/chair florals at our venue, etc) but everything I do know makes me so greatful we found her!
Thank you so much for making my wedding flower dreams come true! -Janna C.,Sacramento, CA (2017)
"Ariana and her staff were not only a vendor for my vintage couture baby shower they became friends. I was so happy to hire Ariana as I saw some of her work on her website (ameshaus.com). There are millions of florist out there but what sets Ariana apart is her design and her attention to detail she is a true artist. She picks every flower carefully and somehow it is all these exotic flowers you have never heard of that mesh so well with each other she is a visionary. Ariana was one of the most pleasant people I have ever worked with. I love how she makes you feel like you are her most important client the entire time although she may be working with 4 to 5 others. What I loved most is that my flowers looked nothing like any others arrangements I've seen they were one of a kind. She was on time to the venue and all meetings leading up to the big day. My guest could not stop raving about her work even days after. I can't wait to work with her again. Great work Ariana on making my vision come to life with your floral artistry. I would highly recommend you check her out for your next upcoming event." - Jasmine W., Sacramento, CA
I was very impressed with the quality of the work. I ordered several bouquets for a retirement party and each one was handcrafted to perfection . My guests walked in and saw the tablescape and were stunned. The Ichibana arrangements were impressive. I was trying to wow a very specific audience and Ames Haus exceeded my expectations with wedding quality flowers. -Rebekah V., Antelope, CA
