Melissa was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a small Block Island wedding and a small floral budget, but she went out of her way to work with us and meet our needs. She not only provided wonderful service (including staking 4ft vases into the ground at the very windy lighthouse & a last minute flower pedal delivery for our impromptu flower man), but her talent at creating arrangements to be exactly what you envision is unsurpassed. Melissa was friendly and able to turn my vision into a reality, while keeping within the budget - I couldn't ask for anything more!
Stop looking for your florist here and book Melissa! From start to finish she was honest, helpful and prompt in her responses (crucial when you’re planning a wedding). The flowers were the main attraction above all decor at my Block Island wedding. The bouquets, boutonnières, centerpieces, and outrageous arbor adorned with flowers and ships wheel, all surpassed my expectations. I had my indecisive ideas and she patiently built off of them and collaborated with me until we finalized everything. She is capable of accomodating a variety of styles, from the whimsical boho look, to the preppy classic style I had at my wedding. I was more attached to my bouquet than my husband at my wedding...that’s when you know she’s good!
I can't say enough about Painted Rock Designs and Melissa. She is not only so talented, she is amazing to work with you. She took our vision for our wedding day and exceeded our expectations. I can not recommend her enough. If I ever do a vow renewal she is going to be the first vendor I call. Thank you, Melissa for helping make our day so beautiful and memorable! xx
Melissa's flowers are a dream. Communication with her was so easy and our wedding day was absolutely stunning. Arrangements from the ceremony transitioned seamlessly to our reception area and the compliments never ended. Her attention to detail was impeccable. Would highly recommend Painted Rock Designs for your big day!
Melissa is absolutely amazing to work with!! During our initial exchange, I quickly learned that what I thought I wanted was way outside my budget. Melissa gave me suggestions and worked with me to execute my vision without going overboard - all via email as I live in Baltimore and was planning a wedding on Block Island. The arbor was able to be easily transformed into a gorgeous chuppah and I received so many compliments on the bouquets and table arrangements.
We met Melissa at the Block Island wedding show and I instantly knew we did not need to look any further for a florist for our wedding. Melissa's designs are elegant, modern and creative. She was extremely knowledgeable about what flowers would work best for our theme and survive an our outdoor wedding in July! Knowing nothing about flowers myself, I could not have done this without Melissa's advice. Our bouquets, aisle decor and centerpieces arrived right on time the day of the wedding and looked AMAZING! We received so many compliments from guests. We highly recommend Melissa and her team!
Melissa and her team were great! I worked with Melissa for my parents' vow renewal ceremony and she was so accommodating of my tight time frame and special requests/ small order - even though she had three other weddings on the same weekend! She was communicative, friendly, and professional. She worked well with my style and added some amazing little details that I didn't expect but loved (i.e. she included a cute 'here comes the bride' bucket for the flower girl to carry the petals in). When I picked up the order, her staff had the flowers packaged and ready to go! Everything was smooth from start to finish. Highly recommend Painted Rock Designs!
Melissa is simply amazing! From the positive energy she exudes, to the passion she has for her job...she's incredible at making a bride feel special. I only had a slight idea of what I wanted and after talking through it with her she made my vision come to life. When I saw them the day of I was floored and overwhelmed with joy. They were just perfect! I couldn't stop jumping up and down. I'm beyond happy she was our florist!
I absolutely can not say enough about Melissa and her team at Painted Rock Designs. She is extremely talented, takes such pride in her work and has an amazing eye for detail. My vision was slightly unconventional and took some imagination; Melissa was the perfect person for the job. She and her team went the extra mile to make sure everything was exactly what I had envisioned. I am SO happy I decided to hire her as our florist. Not to mention she has a huge heart and great positive energy- Can't ask for much more than that! I would recommend Painted Rock Designs to ANY bride!
Melissa truly brought my vision to life! She was so easy to work with, reliable and extremely responsive. Her tips and advice were super helpful, and she was able to work within my budget. It's tough planning a wedding from afar especially when it comes to visuals, but she made it so easy. I truly felt like I had known her forever by the end. I would highly recommend Melissa and feel confident with your decision :))
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 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. Both my husband and I were blown away with her work. Highly recommend!
If I could give her 10 stars I would! Melissa is absolutely amazing at what she does! After doing a ton of research and looking at different vendors online, I stumbled across Painted Rock Designs on the knot. After looking at her portfolio, I knew I had to book her. A lot of other vendors I looked at had a very "cookie cutter" type look and I did not see too much originality. However, Melissa had just the style I was looking for. Lots of different colors that blended together so nicely and original use of different flowers. I showed her some pictures off pinterest of the type of style I was looking for. We talked everything out and she took my concept and came up with a completely amazing idea and turned it into my own! She is so professional and such a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone with wedding floral needs! :)
Melissa was fabulous to work with! She has the uncanny ability to read your mind and make your ideas come to fruition. I had ideas in my mind as to what I wanted my flowers/color scheme to look like, but did not know the first thing when it came to flowers. Melissa took the time to sit with us and fully understand our needs, and proposed creative, innovative solutions to meet our budget. Thanks to her expertise, our flowers were gorgeous and tied in beautifully with our overall color scheme! Her knowlege, passion, and attention to detail are like no other. You will not be disappointed in choosing Melissa & Painted Rock Designs!!
Melissa was INCREDIBLE! She is so organized and attentive and we could not have picked a better person. My sister and I both used her for our weddings and she made all the stress go away. She was early, helpful, and the flowers were PERFECT! I would recommend her to anyone and could not have been happier with our choice.
Melissa was INCREDIBLE! From the very start, she was super attentive and helpful. I knew nothing about flowers and don't have a particular eye for interior design. Melissa spent time with me sending different ideas and options as well as touring the venue. I got so many compliments on the flowers and they lasted all night. She absolutely helped me get the most for my money all while creating the look and feel we were going for. I truly can't say enough positive things about her!
Melissa was great to work with! She followed my budget needs but still made the flowers for the girls , guys and tables perfect ! Just what I wanted ! I last minute added on an arch with flowers and she was very willing to get it done ! Thank you !!!
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 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 :).
I was so excited to meet Melissa after seeing her beautiful work, and I knew the moment I met her in person I had made the right decision. We clicked immediately and she was easily able to see my vision and work with me on bringing it to life. She has a natural knack and passion for flowers and was very enthusiastic in helping me plan the floral arrangements for my wedding. I think working with her on the flowers was one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning. She is honest and will guide you in the right direction so your wedding decor is truly, uniquely "you". She really went above and beyond and the flowers the day-of blew me away. Melissa is THE florist you should go to for your wedding day!
Melissa did an amazing job with my boutiques and boutonnieres for our wedding. She was so easy to work with and was efficient at getting back to me anytime I had questions. We mainly spoke through emails and I sent her pictures of flowers I liked. Through the pictures she was able to developed beautiful boutiques that were within our budget and fit our theme to a 'T'. We were extremely happy with everything! Thank you Painted Rock Designs!
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 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. Her style is just so amazing as it can be seen in her store she opened up on the island as well. She definitely made planning a wedding from afar a breeze. It was so evident that she truly cared about my wedding day exceeding my expectations. It was such a pleasure working with her. I give her my highest recommendation.
Melissa is so talented!! She surpassed my expectations, is down to earth, easy to work with, and just "gets it." She has excellent taste and her new shop on the island is a great showcase! Highly recommend—she will not disappoint.
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 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! She understood what we were looking for right away and was in constant communication with us during the 18 months between securing her services and our wedding date. Whenever she worked on or saw something that she thought fell in line with our style, she would send us a picture or link to show us. She collaborated with us and created the most incredibly beautiful arrangements meeting our vision exactly. We became friends with her and her husband and they were guests at our wedding! She even surprised us by getting us and setting up a specific plant that was impossible to find. Using Painted Rock Designs was the easiest decision we made for our entire wedding at the Spring House on Block Island. Melissa is a class act.
Melissa was FANTASTIC! I wasn't quite sure what I wanted and she took my ideas, asked questions, was so patient and the end product was just breathtaking. She worked within our budget and had the best suggestions - I couldn't have been happier with our final flowers! A dream come true. Thanks Melissa!!
I cannot say enough about Painted Rock Designs! Melissa was a true professional and I really enjoyed working with her. Her designs were beautiful and she took the time to understand my vision and make sure we were on the same page. She was attentive throughout the planning process and always responded to me in a timely fashion. I have to say that she was the vendor that i enjoyed working with the most and would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding on Block Island. You will not be disappointed!!
