She sent me photos and videos of sneak peeks of some of the flowers the day before our wedding. As I was getting my hair and make up done the day of she came in with my bouquet and I was speechless. We were even able to use some of the flowers on our wedding cake! Thank you SO much Shelley for making everything so beautiful.

Beautiful, breath-taking, stunning, gorgeous, elegant, and well-designed are just a few of the adjectives we heard from our guests on our wedding day! Interviewing and choosing a florist was one of the most difficult parts of our wedding planni...
ng, that is until we met Shelley Pearson. After meeting with florists who either didn’t listen or forced their own vision onto us we became extremely discouraged. As an Interior Designer, it was comforting and reassuring to meet someone who truly listened to our vision and developed a floral design plan that was more than that we could have dreamed of. Shelley was able to provide us with an estimate at the end of our first meeting and worked to ensure that we felt comfortable with the budget without sacrificing the aesthetic. She took the time to meet with us and our wedding planner both at the church as well as the reception venue, providing insight on multiple aspects of our wedding décor, seating plans, and all the intricate details that made our day so special. We admit that allotting close to 10% of our wedding budget on flowers was not an easy pill to swallow; however, from the moment the Expressions of Love team started bringing the flowers into the church sanctuary we knew we had absolutely made the right decision. As all the pictures started flowing onto social media, we saw just how important the floral design and quality is and feel great about our investment. We recommend Shelley and her team hands down for any of your floral needs. We feel like we’ve gained both a florist and friend for life!

There was a potential for wind and rain on our big day and she kept in touch with me right up until the ceremony to make changes as needed (changing outdoor decor to indoor arrangements). Absolute perfection!

alked in and saw it decorated that night. With a winter wedding, she added little details to the bouquets I never would have thought to add to give it a little piece of Christmas, gold glitter leaves, holly berries, and greenery. The day before the wedding she was sending me photos of how it was all coming together and told me everything would be handled from here on out and not to worry about a thing. She was very professional and really took control of where the flowers were supposed to be and when. She also did some last minute bouquets for a bridal shower my mom and sister threw for me in November. Everyone was coming up to us asking who did the flowers, that’s when you know they really stood out! It was so elegant and classic, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Shelley for making our big day so PERFECT!!

After meeting with Shelley, it was clear she understood exactly what I wanted (flowers to match the southern/vintage/garden look I was going for), and I was eventually blown away by the final product on my wedding day. My bouquet was EXACTLY what I wanted (just-picked-from-the-garden flowers wrapped in twine) and the flowers on the tables (we used very old mason jars that belonged to my husband's grandmother and aunt as vases) were stunning.
