We cannot thank Haus 353 enough! Our wedding day ran so smoothly, the planning was so organized, and our décor was flawless -- all because of the amazing Ione and team! She listens to your requests, responds quickly to every call/text/email, works with you (and your budget) to make your dreams a reality, makes you feel valued as a customer, and goes above and beyond to deliver the most quality work and service. We hired Haus 353 for floral and event coordination, and I highly recommend you do the same. Thank you so much, Ione and Haus 353!Apr 22, 2019
I found Haus 353 and Ione through thumbtack and I am so so grateful to have worked with them for my wedding in July! I had a 9 month engagement with both my fiance and I living in different states, along with our wedding being in a 3rd different state. Both of us working full time and renovating a home and preparing for our new life together -- we had a lot on our plate. We were recommended to get a coordinator to help with the planning and day of. And I am so glad we decided to do it because Ione was a saint for us! She helped so much with planning, decorations, ideas, was our florist, and helped us plan the day to a tee. I was afraid with the wedding being in a different state and with 300+ guests that we wouldn't have the time to get the wedding we had envisioned. But Ione really helped us put it together. She's incredibly sweet, easy to talk to, and very professional. We didn't have to worry on the day of because Ione and the team had it covered. I couldn't recommend her enough!Aug 6, 2019
We met Ione from Haus 353 through a referral. She was so friendly, warm, & calming. Her personality and work ethic made wedding planning feel like a breeze. We started the initial wedding planning from 3 different cities (Groom in NY, Bride in SF, Planner in LA), but Ione still made us feel like we had it all together. She even spent the time to take us to the flower market in LA to get a grasp of what our personal tastes were like before making suggestions on floral decor. She was always approachable and easy to contact. She always made great suggestions to help rein us in (especially when we would get crazy ideas that would push our budget over). Her team was amazing and so so sweet. They were great under pressure the day of the wedding and created such a calming atmosphere for us. She even checked in with us the day after and a couple weeks after as well, which was so unexpected and sweet. Highly suggest Ione and her team!May 14, 2019
They were so responsive from the moment I reached out to them to inquire about prices! Ione was so personable which made me comfortable and confident enough to hand over the most important part of my wedding to her, THE FLOWERS. She was so helpful throughout the process and assisted me in choosing and matching flowers based on my budget and style. The flowers came out so beautiful and she made sure every single stem was used and went out of her way to use them on our cake and throughout the venue wherever there was a need for more flowers. HAUS IS GREAT!Aug 16, 2019Verified
What can I say, Ione was just wonderful. I hired her and her amazing team for my wedding this past weekend and I can say it was nothing but magical like a fairy tale. She was also my coordinator and she handled all the problems so gracefully that I didnt have time to stress. She was always with a smile and most importantly she was able to make our visions and deconstructed ideas a reality the even surpassed our own expectations. Her bouquets were gorgeous, she handled unforeseen last minute requests without an issue. Dont know what I would have done without her in my wedding life. I will hire her 100000% without a doubt.Oct 1, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I love to hear about what my customers need as far as their personal style and of course their budget. Each client is different, and I make a tremendous effort to personalize their service to fit what they are looking for by offering customized quotes and offering a multitude of options at different price points. I am able to offer great and flexible pricing because I do not have a storefront or that type of overhead, I work out of a private studio. I like to pass the savings off to my customers. I also offer Event Coordination services with our floral and event design. Since we are working closely in designing your event, we find it pairs really well with our event coordination service so that everything is set up just how you envisioned it. The best part- you get a 10% discount if you book us for both services!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our typical process for working with a new customer starts by getting to know a little bit about them by having them fill out a short questionnaire which be found on our website. This helps me get to know their aesthetic and what kind of budget they are working with. From there, I create a detailed custom quote outlining exact prices, fees, and photo examples. Should my clients have any changes they'd like to make, I adjust accordingly. Once they decide they'd like to reserve our services, we accept a deposit to hold their date on our calendar. If they would like to meet in person we arrange a meeting or a phone call at anytime that works best for them! I just try to make the planning process as easy, fun, and transparent as possible.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been involved the event industry since 19 years old. That would make it about 9 years now! Time flies. I started as an event assistant for a few different event planning companies that are nationally known. I also worked as a florist at a flower shop at a young age and always loved being crafty and experimental. However, full disclosure, I would say that I am more self taught than classically trained. My style and techniques have been developed through many years of owning my own business! I would say that I love learning pretty much any craft and take to projects with a lot of confidence in my work.
