Words cannot express how gorgeous my wedding flowers turned out thanks to Marisa and her staff. The flowers were one of the elements that were most complimented on at my wedding on October 12, 2013. Even I was stunned when I saw my bouquet and when I walked into the reception hall. My mother was almost brought to tears upon seeing the flowers. My husband, who is very frugal and was hesitant about spending $2,200 on flowers, was awestruck by the floral elements. Not only did he comment on how beautiful the flowers were at the wedding, but after seeing the teasers of our professional photos, he kept saying, "Your bouquet was so awesome."
This is why I am absolutely baffled by any negative reviews Marisa has received. She came highly recommended to me by several Chicago suburb brides, and after my wedding, I know why. Marisa is an artist, and if you provide her with clear direction on what you want, she will not only deliver, she will go above and beyond. She is a no-nonsense type of lady--if you want something that is going to be expensive, she will tell you. But she will also work with you to try to create your dream bouquets and centerpieces for a price that is reasonable to you. When I told her the original quote she provided was too high, she worked with me to get it to where my dream flowers fit my budget by providing suggestions for alternate flowers and textures we could use to recreate my dream image. She created bouquets, boutonnieres, nosegays, corsages, an arbor, a hairpiece, tall centerpieces, and short centerpieces for my wedding.
At my consultation, I looked through many of Marisa's photo books, and I was very impressed with her work. Of course, everyone thinks their wedding is the best, but I truly believe some of Marisa's best work was done at my fall wedding! I am eternally grateful to her for taking such interest in me and my vision to create such gorgeous flowers. From one Italian to another, grazie, Marisa! You truly made my dreams come true.

Marisa did a great job putting together our wedding flowers! We were going to do the flowers ourselves but my mother in law insisted we at least meet with a florist first. We met with Marisa about one month before the wedding. We were very surprised at how inexpensive it could be. She was very respectful of our budget. We purchased our centerpieces and bridal and bridesmaid bouquets. We were so happy with the price and the arrangements. The staff was very friendly and kind.
