Maureen's work is BEAUTIFUL! I requested a very simple rustic floral arrangement for all aspects of the wedding and Maureen more than delivered! She is very creative, had attention to detail and her work is stunning. On the business side, she is very responsive, I never was worried about anything with Maureen!Sent on 05/30/2019

Phenomenal experience and gorgeous arrangements
Maureen was amazing to work with. The first time we met with her she had created a mock bridal bouquet, bridesmaid bouquet, and centerpiece to give us an idea. It was super helpful to be able to see them in person, and not just pictures. In the months leading up to the wedding we had multiple changes, such as changing what the ring bearer and flower girls would carry, and any change we made was met with a kind email and updated invoice. I was especially thankful that she kept us within our original budget of $3K and she worked with us to make that budget go as far as possible without ever making us feel like we had to add money. Finally, her creations on the day of the wedding were fabulous – I was looking for an elegant but natural look with a lot of greenery and I would not change a thing about what she created. I would recommend Maureen for any bride!Sent on 09/09/2019

Floral Notes was a great decision!!
I loved working with Maureen! She's not only talented and creative, she totally listened to what our vision for our wedding was and was spot on in delivering the most beautiful flowers that we could hope for! Our wedding was one night, and the reception the next, so it involved two trips, and she was prompt, set things up beautifully, and then helped another vendor, with some set-up. Her warm and friendly personality were awesome to work with, and I couldn't have been happier on this special day, to have chosen Maureen and Floral Notes. Highly recommend!!Sent on 09/03/2019
Maureen did the floral arrangements at a wedding we catered this summer! Her work was absolutely beautiful and admired by all the guests!
