Erica and Joey

Mercedes Says...

Erica and her sweet mother Donna came to me with the desire to incorporate beautiful tones of spring colors with elegant hydrangeas to create centerpieces that would truly be the center of attention. After showing them the pictures from Kari’s wedding, they decided that the setting was just what they wanted and it was evident we had a hit! In contrast, Erica and Joe’s wedding incorporated a variety of color and included the bride's favorite flower, the stunning tulip. Mom and daughter once again left the designing up to us, as long as we got the colors and tulips into each wedding arrangement and bouquet!

The Designs

As I put Erica's flowers together I knew she definitely wanted a peach colored flower. I found the perfect rose, which shares a name with the mother of the bride, and it seemed like the perfect sign. For that reason, the peach Donna rose became part of all the designs, the most special of all being the bride's bouquet. Along with Donna, we incorporated white and pink peonies, lavender roses, green berries, yellow tulips, white and green hydrangeas and, of course, dusty miller for that light shade of grey to match the bridesmaids dresses as well as the wedding party suits. On April 13, 2013 we created a spring wedding ceremony filled with water, candles and a myriad of flowers! This was a designers dream—oh, and the bride's too! The Anderson and Caputo families were tremendously gracious and enjoyed the flowers so much, we left the wedding feeling terrific, as once again we had designed the wedding of our dreams! Mercedes Flowers’ dream wedding is your wedding!

The Client Says...

Let me just start by saying that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Mercedes!!! She did the flowers for my wedding this past April and I was so happy we picked her. First of all, she is the absolute sweetest person ever. I feel like I could just sit in her office and talk with her all day about anything and everything. She made me and my mom so comfortable from our very first meeting, and we knew that everything about the flowers would be perfect, if nothing else. She is so personable and professional at the same time. She really likes getting to know each and every bride and makes sure to only do a certain amount of weddings every month so that she can really give you her undivided attention. Going into the whole wedding planning craziness, I had no idea what I envisioned for my flowers, but after meeting with her I was completely at ease and I knew that they would be lovely. She is so attentive and seemed to know exactly what I wanted and practically read my mind, even though I wasn't even sure if I knew what I wanted! She keeps you informed of what's going on but doesn't burden you with unnecessary details. The prices were completely reasonable, and she does everything she can to work within your budget and give you the most beautiful arrangements. I was a complete mess while I was balancing wedding planning with school and she just went above and beyond- I literally think I had nothing to do the week of the wedding because she took care of it. She got to the church early and made sure everything was perfect for pictures, stayed for the ceremony, transferred all of our flowers to the reception, and made sure everything was perfectly in place. Honestly, I could make this review go on for years but she is just amazing. If she does your flowers, you will love them and you will love her!
