Maryann was awesome!! All I wanted was brooch bouquet - and Maryann stepped up to the plate. I didn't exactly give her a lot of time, we were requesting for family and friends to give a brooch to help me build my brooch bouquet at my bridal shower (exactly one month prior to the big day). We were able to meet and go over ideas, colors, shapes that go into building this bouquet. I'm not too familiar with flowers, but Maryann was there to help guide me through so I could give her a better idea on what I wanted and didn't want. She was extremely patient with me, flexible, honest, and a pleasure to work with. My bouquet turned out BEAUTIFUL!!! She captured and designed more than what I could dream of in a brooch bouquet. It was stunning! I received so many compliments on it. One of the best part about it, it was also made with silk flowers, so I am able to keep it forever!!! I would recommend Flowers on the Porch to any bride!
Thank you Bianca! I loved doing your brooch bouquet! I love working with all elements of design! I'm so thrilled you were happy with it. It was my pleasure to work with you & honored you chose me to do your bouquet. Congratulations & Best Wishes Always. Maryann
Maryann did an amazing job with everything at our wedding! She was an absolute pleasure to work with every step of the way. I was blown away with my bouquet and all the final touches she helped put together the day of the wedding. I had given her my mother's veil to wrap around the handle of my bouquet, and she did it beautifully. She also surprised me by taking pieces of lace from the veil and placing them among the flowers, which was breathtaking. I was so happy on my wedding day with how beautiful everything was the she put together. She is a wonderful florist and I would recommend her for any bride.
Thank you so much Sarah! It was also a pleasure to work with you too! I totally enjoy surprising brides with my own ideas & I'm so happy you shared that in your wonderful review & mostly that you liked it! I had so much fun working on your wedding flowers! Thank you again. Maryann
MaryAnn is fantastic. Flowers were beautiful and we could not have asked for more. Planning from out of town is not easy but MaryAnn was very helpful and worked with our schedule. She knows what she is doing and helped to make my wedding planning much easier. Highly recommended!!!!
Thank you Renee! It was so much fun planning your wedding with you! I loved all the flowers you chose & the details were beautiful.
Maryann made the most beautiful bouquets for me and my girls for my wedding and the boutonnières for the boys. All of them were permanent flowers and the most beautiful arrangement. Her attention to detail is perfect!! More than exceeded my expectations. I was so happy she was able to do this for me considering I live in Florida. They arrived in perfect condition. Thank you so much for amazing work Maryann!!! :) Best part of my permanent flowers, they still look as beautiful today as the day I got married!!
Thank you so much Yvonne! It was my pleasure! I loved the color scheme & you looked stunning! Thank you for choosing me for wedding florist.

What can we say about Maryann...tooo many GOOD things thats for sure! We could go on for days! She made our wedding absolutely beautiful with the flowers and centerpieces she created! The moment my husband and i walked into our venue we were taken away by the beauty she had created! We got so many compliments on our centerpieces, it was astonishing! And my bouquet along with my bridesmaids bouquets were absolutely beautiful and so much better than we could've imagined! You cant go wrong with picking maryann to do your flowers for your wedding! she will make your dreams come true with the beauty she creates!! :)

I wish you the Best of EVERYTHING always & hope we can work again in the future! xoxo Maryann
Just starting to write this review puts a smile on my face! That's how I feel about Maryann! I cannot say enough good things about her and the gorgeous masterpieces she creates! She is truly an amazing artist. She always answered my emails right away, she got to know my husband and I personally and I feel confident that I will stay in contact with her because she's so sweet. Her knowledge of flowers and how to treat them and make them last is amazing. My untraditional bouquet of lilacs came out stunning...I was floored when I saw it, it was breathtaking! Every single centerpiece she created was gorgeous!!! Everyone was clamoring to take them home...she did such a beautiful job!! She even knew what to do when a flower I wanted at the last minute wasn't available. She was there for me when I was freaking out...and she always knew what to say :) Again...I highly recommend her for a multitude of reasons, you can't go wrong!
Lara, you are the sweetest bride! Thank you for such a great review! I had this connection with you right away! And our love for lilacs totally cemented it! I enjoyed every moment of your wedding preparation & speaking with you about your flowers & I'm so happy for you both xoxo P.S. I want to hear about those lilac bushes you planted at your beautiful new home! Best of Everything Always, Maryann
Maryann is amazing!! She met with me on more than one occasion. I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted for flowers. She showed me many different options. She is very knowledgeable!! I wanted simple- she provided just what I was looking for- simple but with a beautiful pop!! That is exactly what we got. When people see pictures from our wedding they always compliment how beautiful the flowers were. Thank you again
Amy and Joe Crispino
Thank you so much Amy & Joe!!! It was such a pleasure to work with you both! I loved your photos, everything looked amazing! Thank you again Maryann
Every bride has a favorite vendor and mine was our florist. I was really particular on picking a florist because I wanted someone who would not give me something cookie cutter. Our florist was recommend to us by our DJ, who we also did love. After I visited Maryann Dawson’s website I was really interested in visiting with her in person. My husband and I would be in NY for the holidays (we planned our wedding from WI) and it was the perfect time to sit down with Maryann. I had ideas on the kind of flowers I wanted to use and she was right on board with me. Some of my suggestions she liked and in other cases she gave me alternatives I had not thought of. What I loved most about working with her was how knowledgeable she was about her craft. We booked in January of 2010 and our wedding was in October of 2011. For the next several months any question I had she answered right away. On the day of the wedding she showed up right on time with the most beautiful arrangements I had ever seen. All of the flowers looked fresh and perfect. For our table arrangements we opted for candles in glass with pressed fall leaves wrapped around the outside. When we arrived at our venue our table pieces came out just the way we hoped. Maryann, is an artist with flowers and truly creative with other decorating ideas. Aside from these great qualities she was warm and friendly. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to any bride.
Thank you so much Lisa Marie! I loved working with you & all your beautiful flowers & ideas that turned out to be fantastic! It was such a pleasure.
My husband and I could not have asked for a more suitable floral designer than Maryann, whose professionalism exceeded all our expectations. Maryann was a constant source of inspiration and joy, which is exactly what kept me confident and going throughout the entire course of wedding planning.
Maryann has always responded to each e-mail and each question that we had, which ensured us of her dedication. She provided her input and her ideas to complete our initial vision of what our centerpieces and bouquets should look like and the result was simply breathtaking!
She masters her craft with devotion, creativity and love and it has been a complete honor to work with her.
Maryann deserves our highest recommendations because she is determined to contribute to your special event with her amazing floral creations, her complete professionalism and her obvious delight to work with her customers.
We look forward to working with Maryann in the future!
Having such wonderful people to work for is the most amazing part of my profession! I cannot tell you the joy I get reading your wonderful words of praise. I would be thrilled over & over to repeat working for you, PJD! I can only imagine how hard it was to plan your wedding from long distance & again thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting such trust in me! I wish you all the happiness in the world & look forward to being a part of your future, nothing is to large or small, just call me! xoxo
Maryann puts so much heart into her work. She is one of the sweetest people I have met, and so easy to work with. Her prices are very reasonable. All of her bouquets and arrangements are breathtaking!! I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend using Flowers on the Porch.
Thank you so much! It was a complete pleasure to work for you both! It was such a beautiful wedding! I loved all your gorgeous choices! Wishing the best forever with xoxo's!
Flowers on the Porch was amazing! Maryann responded to my email right away and literally created exactly what I wanted. I LOVED my flowers, all of them- from the ones on the tables to my bouquet. When I saw the finished product on all the tables I nearly died- they looked amazing! She was excellent to work with and I would highly reccomend her. I would definitely use her again if I have another event.
Kara it was a complete pleasure to work for you! I had so much fun collaborrating with you & loved all your flowers & your amazing ideas! You were so gorgeous in your gown & accessories, just beautiful inside & out! I am so glad we still stay in touch.....And so happy you were pleased with everything! Thank you so much for all the wonderful words! xoxo!
I can't say enough good things about Flowers on the Porch! Maryann was a pleasure to work and designed the most beautiful arrangements for my fall themed wedding. For my bouquet, I wanted something different than the standard rose bouquet seen at many weddings. Maryann suggested many flowers I had never heard of that she knew would go well with my theme. The end result was beauftiful! Maryann also made pomander balls for my ceremony, did the flowers for my hair and decorated my cake. Everything was just perfect and I received many compliments from the guests on all of the flowers. Her rates were also much more reasonable than other florists I had spoken with. I highly recommend Flowers on the Porch!
Thank you so much Kelli! It was such a pleasure to work with you also! I loved the diversity of your flower choices! Best Wishes Always, Maryann
When my son was getting married, I went with my (now) daughter-in-law, Emily, to meet Maryann and discuss her ideas for their fall wedding outdoors. Maryann was so personable and knowledgable that she put us both at ease within minutes. She listened carefully to what my daughter-in-law wanted, and gave creative suggestions consistent with Emily's vision. Maryann designed a gorgeous arch for the wedding ceremony, beautiful bouquets in brilliant fall colors for the bridal party and unique, sumptuous table arrangements. The bridal couple were very happy with her work. Maryann was professional, delightfully creative and timely. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Thank you so much Barbara for such nice words of praise! It was such a pleasure to work with you & Emily for hers & Darshan's wedding! I loved all of their ideas & enjoyed every moment of designing their flowers!
Maryann from Flowers on the Porch did an amazing job with my wedding! She worked with my ideas as well as providing great feedback and insight. She worked with me and made my original 'vision' a hundred times better with her expertise, and made it all come to life on my wedding day. Maryann was wonderful to work with, incredibly talented and I thought the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend Flowers on the Porch.
Thanks Nicole! Such nice words of praise! I enjoyed every minute working with you! I loved your ideas & had so much fun with the crystal candelabras! Best Wishes to you & Dan always..Maryann
Maryann is fabulous. She is very easy to work with. My bouquet was prettier than I even imagined in my imagination! She was so helpful when it came to putting my vision into a reality. Received many compliments on my bouquets and centerpieces.
Thank you Amber! It was my pleasure to work with you & Matt.....you are such a great fun couple! Your details were outstanding! Loved all of them! You had a fun but elegant wedding for sure! Best Wishes always..Maryann
