I would recommend Rita to anyone who needs a wedding florist. When I first met with Rita, I didn't even know what to ask for. Apparently I don't have the "bride" gene so I didn't even have pictures to show her. Rita sat with my parents, fiance and I and patiently helped us... Read More figure things out. My parents mostly handled the arrangements for flowers so when my wedding day came along, I really didn't know what to expect. The flowers ended up being one of the highlights of the whole event for me. The bouquets were just stunning and all of the arrangements far exceeded what I had pictured in my head. Rita is a true artist and a professional. She did a magnificent job and was a pleasure to work with.

I am so happy I met Rita at an open house at Lavender & Old Lace in fall 2015 and I am very thankful she was available to be our florist for our wedding in February 2016.

In addition to doing all the flowers for our wedding, Rita also set up the tulle/pew markers and aisle runner in our church auditorium, which saved us so much time, and it made our decorating responsibilities much easier. She also set up the floral table centerpieces at our dinner reception venue (Lavender & Old Lace), provided all the candles for the tables and decorated the head table for us. We also appreciated Rita’s organization and attention to detail and how she was always so kind and welcoming whenever we came to her house to discuss our floral needs. We couldn’t have been happier with our flowers, and we highly recommend Rita’s Floral Designs!

Reviewed on 2/15/2016 Megan P

Rita did an amazing job on our flowers at The Secret Garden!! The flowers initially weren't a big concern for me as we didn't want to have a ton of flowers (just the standard bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and one large piece for our alter that transitioned to our sweetheart... Read More table), and it wasn't an area I wanted to spend a lot of time or money worrying about. When I saw reviews for Rita, I knew I wanted to meet with her because it seemed like she could help me still make our minimal flowers have a big impact. She is the sweetest lady and fantastic at what she does. I showed her a picture of a bridal bouquet I wanted mine to resemble, and she brought it to life beautifully. Other than my bouquet being calle lillies and some sort of pink flowers (we ended up using roses), I told her I trusted her judgement as the professional as to what would look good together. She created a beautiful centerpiece for the top of our alter and it looked great on our sweetheart table afterwards - I loved the dual functioning flowers! She was at the venue in plenty of time dropping them off, and she even labeled all of our corsages and boutonnieres for the correct people as everyone had slight variances depending on their role in the wedding. And three weeks after our wedding, I got a text message from one of my bridesmaids showing the calle lillies from her bouquet still looking as fresh and vibrant as they did the day of the wedding. I highly recommend her for whatever flower service you need - she was well-priced, very helpful and friendly, and uses amazingly fresh flowers. Thank you Rita!!

A Florist who listens AND delivers

Reviewed on 10/20/2015 Jacquie K

Rita was PERFECT! I had met with several florists both before and after meeting with Rita. When I first arrived at my first meeting I was skeptical since she is a small business owner, however she quickly changed my impression. Rita was professional, polite, friendly and really... Read More listened to my wants. It was very important to my fiance that we keep away from roses. I explained to Rita that we wanted calla lilies, tulips, and a naturally blue flower. We wanted to have as few roses as possible. Rita kept this in mind as she laid out the plan for my bouquet, the bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents, grandparents, flower girls, and ring-bearers. She did all of the bouquets, without using a single rose. While other florists tried to talk me into other types of flowers, claimed my vision could not be done, or completely ignored my request and did roses anyway, Rita made my vision a reality. Rita also did the ceremony decor and reception. The only roses were petals for the centerpieces, flower girl baskets and ring-bearer corsages (So they would match the flowers the girls were throwing). I received so many compliments on my wedding flowers and she is redoing my bouquet so that I can have it preserved since the tulips did not hold up until night given the hot October weather. I rate Rita 10 out of 5 stars. She is a vendor who is in the business of serving her customers!
