Stella Event Design is the premire wedding and event florist in Southwest Michigan.

Beautiful blooms & creative containers – a fresh approach to wedding florals!

From the perfect picked-from-the-garden bouquet to creative & unique centerpieces, we can help you to create the wedding day you’ve always dreamed of, whether it be rustic-chic, traditional, contemporary or beach-inspired!

As a special event florist, all of our orders are customized to fit your specific style and needs. We suggest booking your date 9-12 months in advance, and making your floral selections about 6 months prior to your wedding. We’re happy to sit down with you to help you turn your photos and inspiration into the perfect custom floral design!

In an effort to make the process as easy as possible, We have provided as much information about our policies & process as possible below. We're more than happy to answer any additional questions you may have!

  • We are an events-only florist and have a $1,000 minimum order. This is usually not an issue if you plan to use fresh flowers for both personal flowers (bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres etc) as well as ceremony and reception (centerpieces).
  • We are often asked about what is "average." This varies greatly, but our average floral order is $2500-$3000 for a wedding of 150 guests if you plan to use fresh flowers for both personal flowers (bouquets, etc) as well as reception (centerpieces). We've created everything from $2,000 to $15,000 designs, and can create something beautiful to meet almost any budget!
  • If you're early in the process (which you are), we just require a signed contract and $750 (non-refundable) retainer to secure your date. Pricing on the products change from time to time, so we do our actual designing (which determines your pricing) for you once we're 6 - 3 months before your wedding.
  • Once a quote is created (or 3 months prior to your wedding, whichever is first) a 50% deposit (less your initial $750 deposit) is required. Some brides are ready to sit down and put a quote together right from the start, and bypass the initial $750 deposit. Please note that the 50% deposit is what locks in individual pricing on each item, as those are based on current wholesale costs.
  • Your final balance and changes are due approximately 3 weeks prior to your wedding date, unless otherwise noted by your designer.
  • Setup services start at $75, depending on your order & location.
  • We design a limited number of events each weekend, to make sure your event gets the time & attention it deserves, and have very limited dates available each year. Providing a deposit and completed contract to us guarantees our service for you.
  • We have a large assortment of in-stock containers, including standard cylinders, cubes, and glass white cubes, corrugated zinc cylinders, mercury glass, pedestal bowls, vintage glass, etched gold & silver planter boxes, barn-wood boxes and planter boxes, and more. We also offer candle holders to coordinate with most designs!

    Absolutely A-MAZING!!

    Shaya was great to work with! Stella Event Design should be your ONLY place to go for flowers, event coordination, and decorations.
    We could not have been more pleased. In fact, our centerpieces were so beautiful that we had guests asking us if they could take them home with them at the end of the night, and everyone kept telling us that they had never seen flowers more gorgeous than ours.
    I truly cannot say enough about Shaya and Stella Event Design. They were amazing in every way - talented, flexible, thoughtful, and reasonably priced. Our experience was so good, we actually invited Shaya and her team to be guests at our wedding, that is how wonderful they are to work with!!

    Beautiful arrangements and very flexible

    We worked with Shaya at Stella Event Design and she was nothing short of amazing! Throughout the planning process she asked for ideas, what I envisioned and if there were any special requests. All of that was taken into consideration and they were even able to accommodate our request for hops and wheat to be included throughout the floral arrangements.
    We decided, like many 2020 couples, to change our initial wedding plan for safety reasons. We ended moving from a large 250 person gathering in MI to a small, intimate gathering in WI. Shaya worked with us and had the arrangements completed early so we could pick them up 2 days before the event. She recommended some changes for flowers that would last a bit longer and be heartier since we were picking up earlier than day of.
    Every single item we received looked amazing!
    Overall working with Stella Event Design was a dream and the products they produce are well worth the cost.

    Jessica provided the Full Service Planning for my daughter's September 2013 wedding. I can tell you that it was worth every penny! The wedding was an outdoor reception along the shore of Lake Michigan. We had to rent everything - tent, tables, chairs, dishes, grills, etc. Jessica was able to secure the rentals at a significant discount and we were able to save more than half of her fee by not renting everything on our own. We also were scammed by a wedding invitation designer from Etsy and Jessica stepped right in and connected us with a local person she knew that was able to get our invitations complete on time in a super short turn around time. Jessica met with our florist with us and in her sweet and gentle manner was able to slightly modify the florist's design to better fit with the "look" Jessica was creating for us at the reception. She never made the florist feel uncomfortable. The tent and tables were gorgeous and everyone commented on them! She is a wonderful team player and worked beautifully with the vendors we had selected on our own. Jessica was extremely calm and unflappable which allowed my husband and I to thoroughly enjoy every minute of all the festivities. I would HIGHLY recommend her.

It is always a pleasure working with Jessica Groth Pennington, Holden Alee and Stella Event Design staff. Everyone is professional, timely, and extremely conscientious of every aspect of the brides special day including being attentive to the needs of her guests'. CK knows IF there is a "bump" along the way that together as a team we work it out. Stella's staff is quick to think on their feet and to take action. Honestly though when CK hears a bride has hired Stella Event Design we take a sigh knowing it is all good. Thank you for the opportunities to work with you now and in the future.
