Stunning Custom Work
Let me just say that I’m absolutely obsessed with Mary’s work! I’m so glad that I met her at the indie wedding expo. Her arrangements are stunning and Mary created the most beautiful bouquets and arrangements for my wedding.
I lost my grandmother two months after I got engaged and was just devastated. Her middle name was Zenia and I asked Mary if she could include one zinnia in my bouquet in honor of my gram. She made my floral dreams come true. The moment Mary walked into my suite with my bouquet, I immediately started crying and felt my grandmother there with me. The boutonnières and corsages were also gorgeous and everything just looked absolutely perfect in our photos! Everything was classic and romantic, but still so unique to what I dreamt about!
If you have the opportunity to work with Mary, I highly recommend it! She is so sweet and listens well to create exactly what you’re hoping for on your big day.
I continue to follow Mary’s work on Instagram and continue to be blown away with how beautiful and creative she gets with her arrangements.

Mary is a visionary. Her work is wild, fresh, both gestural and finely detailed, and uniquely stunning in a way that takes your breath away!
Working with her makes the process a dream - she's smart and intuitive and the proposal she sent us was incredibly comprehensive and beautiful (I showed anyone who would look for months after receiving it, I was so excited). She helped talk through and build out my initial ideas to spectacular results.
Everything she created was sumptuous perfection, and I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Where to begin? Mary’s artistry is beyond words. From the start, she exceeded all my expectations. Sometimes it’s hard to put your wedding vision into words but Mary and I were always on the same page. She knew exactly what I wanted and picked the perfect color palette and florals and I couldn’t be happier with how everything came together. Mary was always an email away to make sure I was confident and ready for my day and she did everything possible to make sure I was stress-free. I can’t recommend Mary enough. Even though my wedding past and that’s the only day you order a large amount of flowers, I know I’ll be coming up with excuses to book Mary in the future. She has become a dear friend and someone I will always look to for inspiration.
I've worked with Persephone Floral in my photography on three different occasions and every time the florals were breathtaking and designed perfectly for the client to fit the mood and style of the shoot. She is an incredibly intuitive designer and with a painter's background, her bouquets could easily be still life for classic paintings. Each bouquet and design is full of harmonious yet original, unexpected color relationships and the best textural pieces for added visual pull. Everything she makes photographs exceptionally well because they're so dimensional and complex. The way she designs is on a different level entirely from any other floral designer I've ever seen.
Mary's work never disappoints! And she's awesome to hang out with as well! Gorgeous floral arrangements and a super cool lady- can't beat it!
