Wedding Flowers

We reached out to Franchesca's the week before our wedding and she was incredibly responsive and flexible. We needed two ceremony arrangements as well as one bridal bouquet. I sent pictures of inspo and Franchesca DELIVERED. Everything was so perfect and I couldn't believe how lovely the flowers turned out. Super reasonable person and great to work with, would recommend this professional!

Top florist in ri

Franchesca was a pleasure to work with while planning my wedding! She was very prompt with answering emails/phone calls and very attentive to details. I found myself to be very nit-picky as our date grew closer and when I had an issue with my bridal bouquet on the morning of my wedding she dropped everything and fixed it right away. She was very organized and honest with my expectations and quotes, and respected our budget--even came up with alternative ideas (i.e., instead of a floral arch at the alter, she suggested taller stemmed plants and placed tea lights on them, which looked gorgeous and stayed within my price range). She is so sweet and definitely has an adaptable vision. I wanted baby's breath flower crowns for my flower girls but I was was worried that one of them, my 18-month-old flower girl, would rip out her flower crown--Franchesca instead made a baby's breath hair clip for her instead, which stayed the entire night! She was also very knowledgeable about my venue, the Providence Public Library, which helped me be a little bit more decisive when it came to which areas I wanted to decorate with fresh flowers (helped cut the cost for me)! All in all, she's great at what she does, her website/social media absolutely reflects what she can do, and she can tastefully add a touch of elegance to your special day!

The perfect wedding florist!

Franchesca was the florist for our wedding on 11/04/22 in Newport, RI and her work went above and beyond my expectations. Finding a florist was more challenging than anticipated, but when our photographer recommended Franchesca's we knew we would be in good hands! Franchesca was so easy to work with - she was incredibly responsive throughout the planning process and was on top of every single detail. When we saw the flowers on the wedding day we were stunned. They were SO beautiful - everything we wanted and more. Our guests complimented our bouquets and centerpieces throughout the entire evening! Thank you so so so much to Franchesca and her team for doing such incredible work and for being so wonderful to plan with. If you need a florist for your wedding or event, look no further!
