So sorry to hear he was shady and a low life with you too.
As you said, spread the word and hopefully karma will get him!

My daughter's wedding was unfortunately called off 4 wks before the date. I called Adam and gave notice of same, which was 31 days prior to the event. I was looking for my deposit to be refunded, as it was prior to the 30 days notice. I was informed by Adam that "according to the contract,HE was able to keep the deposit as it was more than 30 days notice before the event" He also informed me at this phone conversation, that , oh yeah, he had since had the wording changed . I guess his lawyer was drunk when he drew up the contract! Here's how it read:" Should Client cancel the event between the date of is agreement and thirty dates prior to the event (inclusive) then Petals Premier shall be entitled to retain all deposits. Adam admitted to me that it was poorly worded,BUT "that does me no good". He also admitted that the contract was changed , since my situation made him aware of this poorly worded phrase. Shame on me for not reading EVERY word TWICE, but SHAME ON YOU ADAM, for being such a low life business man, that preys on people in such a dark hour!! You know the saying, " They'll tell two friends, and so on and so on" GIRL AND MOM'S OF THE BRIDES, READ EVERYTHING NO MATTER HOW NICE THEY SEEM. THAT CHANGES ONCE THEY HAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!

What a crock... I can't get over the fact that he had over 30 days notice and still KEPT your money... how tricky... We all know that it is not like it cost him anything you don't order flowers or supplies a month in advance...well reading his other reviews on here maybe he does :)... Sorry you got caught up with this SHADY guy... If he knew any better he would try to make good before the KARMA sets in!

I'm the bride mentioned in the post "Cancelled Wedding"... in an effort to make something good come out of a bad situation, I asked Adam to donate the centerpieces for a charity event I'm hosting at my wedding venue, using the credit from my cancelled wedding. Being that Adam and his company would not return the $500 deposit from my wedding, I politely asked him to donate the centerpieces for my charity event, benefiting pediatric cancer. At first he agreed, but then apparently got wind of my mother's post on here, and at the very last minute sent this email to me:
"due to these series of events – I will not be able to help on this with a clear conscience. u didn’t care about me nor did your mom when you posted it in the first place………. now since you want something for free i should feel bad – my flowers will have zero impact on your event – u r a real piece of work.
call the office here and talk to my head designer if you want to find out more about pediatric cancer – her nephew has it.
please don’t contact me again."
.... Nice, eh?

Jessie, take your own advice ! Who are you? Adam's designer! You have nothing better to do than read comments, for No reason, I think NOT!!!!

Wow! I had the same thing happen to me with this company! I called my wedding off a few months before, and they wouldn't return my deposit either! Adam wouldn't even return my calls, and the people at his office were so rude whenever I did call. My advice to all the brides out there is to save yourself the aggravation and go elsewhere!

I am married, very happily for your information Jessie... Just celebrated my 3rd anniversary October 20th... I am real dont even know cassie or sarah Just feel like a spade should be called a spade... I have no problem using my real name, would even post pic's of my beautiful wedding and flowers, not done by Adam, I have read his "contract" and choose not to go with them for my florist and these post go to show that that was a good move his contract looked like a 7 year old wrote it and it made no sense whatsoever!

Jessie, for your information I am just checking out florist web reviews in preparation for my own wedding. I couldn't help but comment on your unfair and distorted remarks. Did we read the same reviews? You seem to have something at stake here! Are you in the habit of reading "retarded websites" ? Oh, and I have no idea of who " Sarah" is. Why would I. Kudos to "Cancelled Wedding" !!! Glad she shared. Sorry for her sad circumatance.

I'm very interested in this discussion, because Petals Premier is one of the florists recommended by my reception hall.

My fiancee met with someone at Petals Premiere (I don't know who). The meeting seemed to be pleasant and productive.

Though after reading some of these reviews, I am concerned about their service. It seems like the negatives reviewers have typically had a good initial meeting, but then have problems once the contract is signed.

It's astonishing that a company can have reviews on such opposite ends of the spectrum. Some love them, some hate them. It's now a difficult decision as to whether we'll go with them.

Would anyone be willing to share more information about their experience, either good or bad?

Thank you,

Agreed. Adam doesn't deserve the reputation he has!... He is NOT a "top florist"... his work is lacking and his business sense is terrible! Keep looking!!

I had the most terrible experience with Petals Premier. Adam is a smooth talker, and requires everything to be paid in full prior to the wedding. Then, he doesn't deliver what he promises. Then, what is your recourse?

Adam charged my parents 400 dollars to have lush flowers lining both sides of the aisle. On the day of the wedding, the flowers weren't there. It was SO disappointing because it was the ONE thing I REALLY WANTED. Then, when my mother, who is the sweetest person alive, called him the next day, he didn't apologize and said he'd call her back, which he never did. Then, he failed to respond to my two emails.

Adam still hasn't apologized OR offered to refund the money to me or my parents. Once he has your money, he doesn't care about making you happy. Terrible business man and terrible human being.

I felt like Chaim Leffel was determined to ruin my daughter's special day. Flowers fell way, way short of expectations, including wilted, brown edges and even using pieces of flowers instead of whole stems. On the day of the event, Adam (Chaim) was nowhere to be found and the people working it did not have any information to go on other than a barely visible small photo. When I complained to Adam's "designer" she challenged me to provide a photo of what had already been discussed in detail.
Shame on you Chaim- you could make a fine living without RUINING SOMEONE'S SPECIAL EVENT.
heed the bad reviews

I wish I had seen the bad reviews prior to booking Petals Premier. Although my event was on a Sunday, Adam did not respond to phone calls or even show up at all to make sure things were done according to contract (they weren't). When I showed the centerpiece to the person who recommended him, she promptly threw his cards in the garbage. I since found out that he works poorly with other vendors and behaves as if he couldn't care less about the customer- not something you'd want to deal with on your special day. Steer clear

I most definitely agree that Petals Premier fell short of my expectations. They were actually the worst vendor we chose to hire for our wedding. While the flowers were beautiful and Adam was friendly (at first), I felt too that my bridesmaids' bouquets were a wayy too small after spending $175 each for them. Beyond that, my bride bouquet was brown within a few hours of delivery. On top of that, both Adam and Patti lied to us to no end with verbal agreements that they had made beyond our written contract. When it came down to our wedding day, they did not show up as promised and nothing we had was taken care of. They charged us for more centerpieces than we had received and refuted to reimburse us our money back. In addition, the entry table we planned out was not set up as we had discussed, even after spending our time to do a walk through upon their request. Then to boot on top of all of this we tried writing our bad reviews on wedding websites like wedding wire and Adam disputed my bad review so his company did not look bad or have any negative reviews on his page (as you can see only 5 star reviews on that webpage). Through all of the ways this company screwed us over on our most important day of our lives, they did not have any remorse nor apologize. When I called to find out what happened a few times, Adam was "too busy and had no times for appointments." When I wanted to discuss some more and go to their office to speak about what went wrong, their staff was highly unpleasant. To those considering to hire Petals Premier for business, I would strongly reconsider and avoid this company by all means possible.
