Butera The Florist is a floral design studio focused solely on weddings and parties located in Downeast Maine. We specialize in exquisite floral design with a modern Euro edge. We service the Greater Blue Hill Peninsula, Bar Harbor, and the Acadia region of Downeast Maine. For more than four decades our wedding and party clients have appreciated our ability to match BUTERA artistry to their own original style.

The first step is a meeting with Vince to explore floral ideas for your wedding day. During the consultation, colors, styles and fresh flower concepts are discussed to achieve a style that will tell your story on your wedding day.

Experience

Vince is a nationally known floral designer and speaker who has been awarded membership in American Academy of Floriculture, American Institute of Floral Designers and Professional Floral Communicators International.

Vince was inspired at age 7 to make Christmas centerpieces for his family out of fresh pine branches from his yard... that began his love of floral design. 8 years later he began working in a greenhouse and as a floral assistant, then received a BS Degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Delaware Valley College with a focus on floral design.

1980 was the beginning of Butera The Florist, with a vision of bringing floral artistry to his hometown of York, PA. Now some four decades later, that God given talent and passion still exudes.

He and Carolyn, his wife of 42 years, fulfilled their dream of living in Downeast Maine and moved their home and business to the Blue Hill Peninsula of Maine in 2021, after being 4th generation summer residents of Swan's Island, ME. They have four adult children whose own creative endevours have them working in Maine and around the world.

    Vince and his wife are truly wonderful!

    Vince was soo great to work with. He took time to call me on the phone and go over every single aspect of my vision and idea for my flowers for the big day. I even went up to his studio in York and met with him to review. He was so caring and really made my idea come to life. He and his wife did such an amazing job and created exactly what I explained in words! They are truly one of a kind artists! I wish i had all my photos back to post more pictures of his beautiful work. I couldn’t recommend him more!

    Beautiful!

    Due to covid restrictions, we had to do all consultations over the phone. So we really had to trust Vince and he did not disappoint. The flowers were beautiful, delivered on time and smelled amazing!
