Highly Recommend - Amazing Work!
Meristem was the first vendor I booked after choosing my venue. I knew before I was even engaged that I wanted to work with Anna. I ended up adding on design services in addition to floral services and am so glad that I did. Meristem does phenomenal work with their floral arrangements, arbors, hanging installations, bouquets, and more - which is evident through photos. However, Anna also shines when working on the design aspect of a wedding. She was instrumental in helping me with layouts, vendor meetings, choosing table settings, giving her opinion on colors and how to tie everything together. She is so easy to work with, responsive, and gives her input while also respecting your wishes. I would highly recommend using Meristem for wedding or other event design floral needs!Sent on 06/26/2019

Anna was the very first vendor with whom I met. She had worked with my venue, Merrimon-Wynne many times, so she had a lot of great ideas and suggestions. I followed her on Instagram, so I was familiar with her work and knew that she always did a wonderful job, but she went above and beyond my expectations. She and her husband, Brian make such a great team! There is no other way to describe their work, other than pure magic. They created a beautiful floral arch in front of which my husband and I were married. They also created a stunning floral chandelier with votives, which my guests absolutely loved. And they added flowers to my wedding cake which made it even more beautiful. My bouquet along with my bridesmaids' bouquets were so gorgeous. Every element of everything that they designed was pure perfection. Thank you again, Anna & Brian!!Sent on 05/09/2019

Meristem was the best choice we made for our wedding!
I cannot say enough glowing things about Anna and Meristem. Anna truly has a gift with flowers and will take whatever you are envisioning and make it more beautiful than you could have imagined. The first time we met, Anna took me through a list of questions to gauge all of my preferences, which was incredibly helpful in identifying details that I wouldn’t have thought to ask about or specify. She offered every last option to customize our floral design, including color palette, vase options, candle varieties, etc. she also offered to help pick other room details, such as chairs and linens, which made our reception space more personalized. I was absolutely blown away by the final product of Anna’s work, and lost count of the number of people who complimented our flowers. In addition to her incredible talent. Anna is also the kindest, most pleasant person you will meet while planning your wedding. I would recommend Anna without hesitation and only wish I had another event I could hire her for!Sent on 12/18/2018
