 — Amy and Ben (2012 Couple) —

The wedding and reception were beautiful-everything we had imagined!  Thank you for taking rough ideas and transforming them into an amazing reality.  I loved every detail from my bouquet to the backdrop and the lights.  Thank you so much!
 — Jacque (2015 Bride) — 
We would like to thank you for all of your help and guidance leading up to our wedding day.  Everything turned out absolutely perfect and we couldn't have done it without you and your team!  From the draping to the centerpieces, to the stunning crystal chandelier over the dance floor, there were so many touches you brought to our ceremony and reception that gave it such a "wow factor"!  From the very first appointment, you put our minds at ease and helped make the process fun and memorable.
 — Lindsey and John (2014 Couple) — 
Thank you so much for the amazing work you did at our wedding reception!  The head table structure, chandeliers, and dance tent draping all looked so beautiful!  You helped give us our dream wedding!
 — Erin and Dusty (2014 Couple and Venue Owners) — 
Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers!  They were perfect!  Thank you for meeting with me to find out what I wanted for the big day, and for being so flexible.  Thank you for making my flowers so unique and special!
 — Lisa (2011 Bride) — 
Thank you so much for creating the perfect floral arrangements, bouquets, etc. for our wedding.  If we could have kept the bridal bouquet alive forever, it would have made Amber so happy as she adored every detail made to her flowers.  We appreciated all of the time you took in listening to our ideas, wants, and hopes for our wedding and you were able to make those desires a reality and exceed our expectations.
 — Amber and Gabe (2011 Couple) — 
I am so happy that I went with Blooms and Bouquets!  I came to Melissa with some pretty unusual ideas and she got really excited about them.  I know that I was dealing with a professional and that I didn't have to worry about a thing.  Everything was perfect!  She not only did my flowers but draped the gym at the church we got married in.  I was so impressed when I got a call saying, "I did it the way we had planned it, and I didn't like it so I changed it a little and it is much prettier this way, is that ok?"  She literally redid the whole thing because she didn't like the way it looked because she wanted it to be perfect, and it was!  Thank you Melissa for everything!  I can't even tell you how amazing you are and you really did make my day stress free!  Worth every single penny!
 — Elizabeth (2014 Bride) — 
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding look great!  We loved all of the bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces.  Everything was exactly what we wanted and even better than what we pictured.  Thank you for making the whole process so easy and fun!
 — Kelsey and Scott (2014 Couple) — 
From my first meeting with Melissa, I knew I had found the perfect florist. There were so many ideas and desires I had that I had no idea how to put into words (I couldn't even perfectly describe  the blush color that I wanted).  She asked me lots of questions about what I did and did not like, looked at my pin boards, and got to know me.  After a couple of meetings, she had some how elicited EXACTLY what I wanted for my flowers and decor all while giving me choices and making sure I stayed in budget.  It was so perfect.  I had a few changes during the planning process and she was always very prompt responding to me.  I love, love, love everything about what she and her team did.  My mom brought a lot of the flowers home and a week later all of them STILL looked as perfect as they did on my wedding day.  I would recommend Melissa and her crew to anyone looking for someone to ensure every detail is exactly the way you want it!
 — Laura (2015 Bride) — 
What can I say...except, I have full confidence that because of you and your generosity, the flowers at my wedding were the most beautifully selected and arranged flowers that I have ever seen.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for all that you did to make it not just possible-but simply amazing!  I am sure that I have no idea what great lengths you went through to give me this wedding so please just accept my deepest and most humble gratitude.  I can honestly say that I had the wedding of my dreams in every regard-and I owe so much of that to you.
 — Tom and Tracy (2011 Couple) — 
The flowers were PERFECT, thanks so much! Also, we appreciate how easy you were to work with!
 — Jarrod and Janelle (2012 Couple) — 
Excellent to work with!  I had no idea what I wanted-Melissa made it so easy!  Everything turned out exactly how I wanted it to, and I didn't have to lift a finger the day of my wedding!  She took care of everything!
 — Beth (2015 Bride) — 
I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how overwhelmed we were with the flowers at our wedding.  They turned out more beautiful and amazing that we expected.  Thank you so much.  The bouquets were especially amazing.  You did an incredible job.
 — Cady and Anthony (2011 Couple) —

 — Karen and Jason (2012 Couple) — 
Omg!  Melissa is amazing to work with.  I can't believe how patient she was with me.  I changed my mind at least 4 times and she never once got mad.  She stayed in contact with us, and helped us stay on budget!  My flowers were gorgeous and we got so many compliments.  They were one of my favorite parts of my special day!
 — Sara (2015 Bride) — 
You do such beautiful work!  Weddings you have put your talent into have been some of our favorites to photograph.  Keep up the great work!

MAKING IT HAPPEN!

Blooms & Bouquets is devoted to making your wedding day dreams into a flawless reality

CONTACT US

We will take the time to listen to your ideas, evaluate your needs and work with you to create your vision. Your experience begins at a laid-back meeting with Melissa, head designer (and generally amazing gal). She’ll step into your world, get to know your preferences and style and make sure that your event embodies the statement you’d like to make.

Our team will then develop multiple designs based on your initial meeting to be presented to you in a second consultation. This is when we get down to business! After you have selected the perfect design, we begin to work our magic. Our “anything is possible” attitude from start to finish will speak for itself in the end.
