The Flower Carte began out of a desire to serve couples like you by providing stunning flowers and upscale design without the designer price tag. We make it easy and enjoyable to have gorgeous florals by providing a streamlined process and tips along the way for those of you who may be interested in a little DIY.
We love our town! And we love to support Chattanooga businesses as much as we can, especially the flower farms in the area. After several years of designing flowers for clients both local and abroad, Emily realized that she wanted to be the kind of resource she wished had been available to her when she was getting married—a place where you can afford a designer’s input while also having access to specialty flowers rather than being at the mercy of the local grocery store picks...you know the one we are talking about ;) .
There's nothing more interesting and beautiful than the natural growth of a local stem and the unexpected variances in the petals of a dirt-grown flower. When the local blooms are not available, we use our knowledge and experience to source other beautiful flowers from our extensive network across the U.S. and even abroad.
We understand too that you'll need a little guidance which is why we have the packages set up the way that we do! All you have to do is choose from our prepared color palettes and styles and then we will use our expertise to choose the best of what's in season to bring you a cohesive and well curated assortment of flowers to your wedding.
Team of The Flower Carte
Owner, lead designer
Emily founded Flower Carte out of a desire to serve Chattanooga based couples and to support the local flower farms. After several years of designing flowers for clients both local and abroad, Emily realized that she wanted to be the kind of resource she wished had been available to her when she was getting married—a place where you can afford a designer’s input and have access to specialty flowers. Thus Flower Carte was born!
With a background in fine art, Emily sees flower arranging as a combination of sculpture and painting. She loves the way using a variety of colors of blooms can affect an overall arrangement in the same way that blending paints creates a new color on a canvas. The tangible and even breathable presence of flowers fills her with joy and she revels in every opportunity to bring this irreplaceable delight to the atmosphere of each wedding she is honored to be a part of.

Anna and Emily worked together at Emily’s original floral studio. When Emily imagined a new business that focused on serving Chattanooga couples and sourcing local blooms, she knew she had to bring a warm and enthusiastic Anna with her. Recently married herself, Anna knows exactly what you are going through! And trust us, you'll want her on your team. You'll never meet a more loyal, fun and harworking friend.
