Melanie’s Flowers

Melanie is such a joy to work with. She utilized bold colors and contrast with unique blooms that you wouldn’t think to put together on your own. She delivered the flowers personally and also stuck around to help arrange them, making sure they looked amazing for reveal. She has such an amazing eye for color and greenery.

Flourish Flower Company with CID

Flourish read Bree and Tyler’s mind when it came to the vision they had for their florals. They were so sweet and even helped pin the boutonnières - because we all know they is a wedding day struggle. They grouped colors together that complimented the Navy and Maroon color scheme already chosen. Not only were they sensitive to the colors chosen, but they also incorporated unique flowers and vines to tie everything together.

By seeking out these floral opportunities, Create a Scene created a cohesive event space that was beautiful and functional.
