100 Stars for Painted Rock Designs

It's nearly impossible for me to fully articulate what a great experience I had working with Melissa. Melissa was so incredibly attentive to me throughout the whole planning process. She was so invested in helping me achieve my vision for my wedding, even before I fully knew... Read More what I wanted. Once I decided on a vision, she spent so much time and effort working on how to perfect it. Not only did Melissa create the most STUNNING flowers I could have ever imagined, but she actually helped me put together the whole design- from the flowers, to candles, to vintage bird cages, to the vintage cake stand. The whole look of my wedding took my breath away. When I first saw my bridesmaids and my bouquet the morning of the wedding, I burst into tears because they were so beautiful. I actually walked around with my bouquet for days after the wedding because I didn't want to part with it. Aside from the aesthetic perfection of the wedding, Melissa was incredible to work with. Such a genuinely sweet person who loves what she does. We got married on Block Island and live in California. The distance could make things challenging and working with Melissa was so simple. She's a great communicator and really budget conscious. She will let you know exactly how any of your ideas will affect your budget and she will really work with you to achieve your vision with flowers that are in-season and more local, which will really help your budget if that's a consideration for you. Overall, I couldn't recommend her highly enough. She really made my wedding planning so much fun and I will forever be grateful for her help, expertise, enthusiasm, and friendship throughout the process. -Danielle

Melissa is absolutely the best!

Melissa is absolutely the best! We started wedding planning with a desired "look-and-feel" but very little flower knowledge specifically. Melissa gave us lots of inspiration and lots of ideas to choose from. The end result was absolutely beautiful: the arch, the center... Read More pieces, the bouquets, even the flowers on our wedding cake (or rather wedding brownies - we are a little unconventional). As a recent bride herself, she knows how strenuous planning can be and makes the process incredibly easy. Out of everything we had to coordinate, flowers were never a point of stress, rather something fun that we looked forward to working on. We highly recommend Melissa for any of your upcoming events!

Melissa and her work are top notch! My fiance and I planned a quick elopement to Block Island and I had wanted a simple flower crown and small bouquet and Melissa was able to make 2 beautiful pieces even better than I expected. Additionally, I had bought some Hawaiian leis from... Read More a different vendor that came to us in horrible condition. I brought them to Melissa to try and salvage them and Melissa was able to recreate both our leis with her beautiful flowers on a day's notice. I am so grateful for her services.

Melissa's flowers were amazing and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. Melissa definitely has a gift when it comes to making arrangements - from centerpieces, bouquets and arbors, each design is unique and completely customized to what you are looking for. In order to... Read More capture our vision (we did green,white and touches of blue, slightly whimsical), Melissa met with us and set up calls to go through types of flowers and different ways of decorating - she was extremely patient with us since we were unfamiliar with florals. She was so easy to work with and took on our challenges with patience and determination. During the process, we had to change our budget and Melissa completely re-vamped our entire design. She was able to keep the same 'look' by replacing flowers with similar styles, shapes and colors and we were able to stay within our new budget. Whenever we weren't sure what we wanted, Melissa was ready to present suggestions and ideas. Overall, it was an absolute pleasure working with Melissa- our flowers were stunning! If you are considering using her, book her quick, she is in high demand :).

Working with Melissa was one of the best experiences I had with planning my wedding. She was so sweet and easy to talk to and on top of that professional. She was truly attentive to my vision for the wedding and put so much effort in giving me plenty of options in making it... Read More happen. She got back to me right away regarding any of my questions or changes that I had. The table décor came out beautiful as did my bouquet.

Painted Rock Designs in one word - stellar! I think I was not the "normal" bride as the details and flowers weren't really important to me. I gave Melissa very little direction and she took the 2 colors and minimal flower budget we had and turned it into stunning bouquets and... Read More center pieces with very classical taste. The bridal bouquet was stunning and is the center of attention in all my pics! She was prompt, professional, and hand delivered everything to where it needed to be when it needed to be there. We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to have Painted Rock Designs be a part of our special day and turn something so insignificant to me into such a focal point of the day. Thank you!

Melissa from Painted Rock Designs made our Block Island wedding dreams come true!

Melissa at Painted Rock was fantastic!

It's actually hard to fully put into words what Melissa did for me and my wedding. She was the very first vendor I spoke to. She, having been a block island bride herself was so incredibility helpful and had tons of advice and a true understanding of a Block Island wedding.... Read More After our first conversation which lasted almost 2 hours I was sure that Melissa was going to help me make not only my flowers but my entire wedding perfect. I was a bride to be going in with not much interest in flowers. I knew it was something you need but was never high on my list of priorities. We sent each other mood boards, looked at inspiration, made all the decisions. The whole time I knew I had nothing to worry about and everything would be great but on the morning of my wedding I was completely blown away. I didn't even know I could love flowers this much. They were perfect! I am a convert! Every aspect of working with Painted Rock for me was Absolutely Perfect!!! She is amazingly talented and hard working but most of all she made it fun and easy which in the wedding planning process can often be forgotten. Without Melissa our day would have not been the same and I can never thank her enough.
