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.
The staff was very friendly and worked with my budget. The flowers were all fresh and beautiful, they were there on time. This is a trustworthy place, friends of mine have also used this florist and been pleased
All Flowers by Marisa was a great florist for our wedding. She really understands that we were on a budget and she's very knowledgeable and creative. She gave us good insight on the types of flowers we liked and she gave good suggestions on similar flowers that would be within our budget. She is very friendly and quite talkative, so don't expect a brief meeting with her, but the conversations were nice and personal.
We ordered eleven centerpieces, three bouquets, flowers for mothers and grandmothers and altar decorations. We provided our own vases, so that helped lower the cost as well. I don't know much about flowers, so I wasn't too specific on my wants. But they turned out better than I expected.
Also, unlike many florists in the Chicago area, Marisa does not have a minimum order amount for delivery. That was a huge plus.
Everything about my experience with All Flowers By Marisa was wonderful. Marisa really took the time to listen to my ideas and give me the best possible flowers for my budget. She gave me dozens of albums to look through and pick out arrangements that complimented my taste. The wedding hostesses at my ceremony said they were the most beautiful bouquets they had ever seen! All the flowers were fresh and looked beautiful all day long.
From the moment we met Marisa, I knew we would want to work with her. Her staff were courteous and helpful in setting up our appointments and Marisa really took her time listening to what we were looking for. She's very creative and has such a great talent for this, we really clicked with her.
We were trying to stick to our budget and she was very accomodating with this. She had great ideas that helped us shape our vision and suggestions from her years and years of experience.
We had a bit of an usual requist because we were looking for wintery woodsey arrangements rather that traditional arrangements. She prepared these in a way that made them look very classy yet kept the wintery woodsey feel we wanted. She added touches and suggestions on our table arrangements by adding a pine sprig and candles.
We had to really trust her in terms of what all she would include in our arrangement and what was available for the season...and she really delivered! I was blown away by the arrangements and my bouquet. They were so full texture an color - I absolutely loved them. They made my heart skip a beat and the wedding feel complete.
We got so many compliments on the arrangements and our event would't have been the same without her work. She came and made sure everyone got their pins and flowers and make sure everything was set up correctly.
We also rented her beautiful birch arches for the ceremony and those just really set the tone for the space. We couldn't have made a better decision to go with All Flowers by Marisa. We'd select them over and over and over again!
What can I say, I am humbled by your wonderful comments.You were a true pleasure to work with and I really enjoyed the whole family. Just wished I could have provided the coyote for our groom ,but at least we had some snow for your vision of a winter...
Marisa is the best! If you want beautiful, yet affordable flowers she is the person to see! My husband and I met with her and she immediately put my cost concerns to rest, reassuring me that she could create beautiful floral arrangements within our price range. Her fun/quirky personality made the whole planning process really easy. I brought Marisa specific pictures of the looks I had in mind and she recreated them beautifully, while putting her own creative spin on things! ALL of my flowers turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined; the flowers made the wedding! I would recommend Marisa to anyone; awesome experience!
Marisa and her team are the best!! I went on lots of flower appointments and was never wowed, until I went to Marisa! She has a wall filled with photo albums of past weddings that she has done. There are pictures of everything you could ever want! I also loved how she had specific albums of the venue I was getting married at, it all really helped for me to get the idea of how were going to look, and they looked awesome!! So many people complimented on the flowers that we used. I was am so happy that we went to with Marisa and her team! I would highly recommend them!!
All flowers by Marisa did a fantastic job on the centerpieces at my reception. My mother-in-law was able to directly work with Marisa herself. She took on my wedding even though she was already all booked up for that day. But let me tell you when I entered that reception room I was amazed by how wonderful the twinkling lights on the branches at each table looked. Simply breath-taking. And as the night wore on the centerpieces, layered with hydrangeas, just glowed more brightly with the setting sun. Marisa is a very talented florist with insight on how to properly trim a hydrangea and pay attention to detail down to the color of the ribbion at the top of the vase. She is a little on the pricey side but she delivers and sets up all the arrangements on time and as the bride you don't even have to think about it. She has years of experience and is able to give you a special day that is all about you and your spouse.
I absolutely loved my flowers at my wedding. They were way above and beyond what I was imagining in the consultation, they were absolutely stunning. The "large" center pieces were absolutely huge I almost fell over when I saw them. Also when the bouquets showed up to the room I was so excited I couldn't even control my volume! Marisa went above and beyond to put together these beautiful creations and was so creative when it came to our moss cone isle pieces, they were so cool!! It was also really nice that she moved a lot of the stuff from the church to the reception so we could reuse things and not have to buy doubles. She was wonderful through out the whole experience and I would go back to her again in a heart beat, and I would heavily recommend her to people I know. Guests were coming up to me all night asking who the florist was so I hope some business goes her way just from that!
I fell in love right away with the bridesmaids bouquets and mine specially. Very helpful personnel and the prices are favorable.
Marisa spent almost two hours with us on a busy Saturday showing us albums of her work and giving us ideas of what could be done for our wedding. She is very creative and she is also very responsive to ideas of the bride and groom as well.
The minute I met Marisa I knew she would do an amazing bride. She not only listens to what you want she brings your ideas and "perfect" wedding to life! She sat down with me for multiple sessions for hours helping me and explaining her ideas! Everytime I called or had a question she called me back within 24 hours. My flowers were absolutely amazing and more than I could dream of. Every guest complimented me on the flowers. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars!!!!
Marissa is amazing! My daughter in law wanted to have the women in our combined families arrange the centerpieces for the wedding. I had no idea how to go about this! Luckily, we found Marissa. When I explained what we needed, she not only helped us choose beautiful flowers, she opened her shop for us and we had a floral arranging party, complete with dinner and photos!! It was amazing and one of our most cherished memories of the wedding week! Then she stored them for us, delivered and set up for us. She helped me give my new daughter in law exactly what she wanted!! And the flowers were absolutely stunning! Thank you again Marissa!
I loved working with this vendor! Marisa, the owner, was involved 100% with my wedding. I was originally using her just for the centerpieces of my wedding because she was working with my reception site. But since I was having so much trouble with my original florist I ended up using her for everything. I left her shop feeling confident that she would be able to give me exactly what I was looking for. The bouquets, corsages, and boutinneres were gorgeous. I received multiple compliments on them. The centerpieces & ceremony flowers were exactly what I was looking for except for the mini plastic gords/pumpkins that she used in them. The flowers she used in the centerpieces & ceremony flowers were gorgeous & so full that I often forgot about the mini plastic gords/pumpkins. Overall this florist is a must for the money & quality.
Thank you for the wonderful review,it was a pleasure working with you and I loved the results, however what you thought were plastic pumpkins were real. The plant we used was called a pumpkin tree. We cut them and used them in your pieces because the...
Marisa and her team put together a STUNNING wedding! They went above and beyond anything I ever expected - I truly could not be happier! All Flowers by Marisa knows what they are doing :-)
I used All Flowers by Marissa for my wedding. They were attentive and respectful of my wishes. Marissa actually works with you herself.
Their prices were extremely reasonable and they worked hard to save me money. The flowers were stunning - I couldn't take my eyes off them all night. I would definitely recommend them.
All Flowers by Marisa was recommended from our reception facility, and we are so glad we were introduced to them! Everything from our first consultation, to the final event was professional, flawless, and exactly what we wanted from a wedding florist! Marisa was very helpful in taking our ideas and recommending flowers for our bouquets and centerpieces. When you visit her shop, she has so many photo albums to look through for ideas and inspiration. Marisa is very patient with clients and passionate about what she does, she was a pleasure to work with!
When it came to the wedding day, the flowers were delivered on time and even more beautiful than expected! :-) She even helped us come up with a unique unity celebration for our ceremony, incorporating flowers and water - it was beautiful! I highly recommend this florist! Thank you, All Flowers by Marisa! :-)
Marisa and her team did a wonderful job on the flowers for our wedding. My consultation was so warm and fun; Marisa felt more like an old family friend and made me comfortable. Everything was taken care of and waiting for us at the church. I was blown away by the beauty of the flowers. Everyone who received bouquets, tussies, or boutonniere, loved them! Thank you Marisa and team!!
