About Us

Rachel and Merry are a mother/daughter design team, passionate about beautiful flowers and exceptional service. We draw inspiration from fashion, home interiors, nature, and of course the same wedding magazines and blogs you live for. We love trying new ideas and thinking outside the box so there is nothing old-fashioned about the way we work.

A Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) alumni with a Bachelor Degree in Fashion Merchandising Management, Rachel has always had a love of high fashion and design. After many years working in various aspects of the fashion industry, she discovered a love and talent for Floral and Event Design while planning her own wedding. Now with 10 years experience under her wing and published work, Rachel services the Charlotte / Lake Norman area of North Carolina.

An artist with a background as a model, hair stylist and a Reiki Master, Merry has been arranging flowers since winning awards with a local garden club as a child. After the inspiring experience with Rachel’s wedding, she went back to school and studied at the Vermont Academy of Floral Design. Merry services the Lower Hudson Valley of New York.

With both formal training and that little special something you’re born with, Rachel and Merry take on each event as if it were their own to create unique, quality designs.
