    I cannot say enough about Mark and Creative Occasions. The work was beyond my expectations. The arrangements and bouquets were exquisite. Every guest at the wedding commented on how beautiful they were. We had a vision in mind and explained what we wanted and Mark and his staff executed and delivered and we were not disappointed. I would definitely recommend him to others. The only regret I have is that his shop is not close to my hometown. If so, he would definitely be the only one I would do business with in the future. I was that impressed.

    Mark and his team were a dream to work with. I was an out of town bride, and Mark was able to make time to meet with my fiance and me when we walked into his shop, about five months before the wedding. He listened to our vision, provided suggestions on how to keep costs down, and was responsive to every email and phone call I left. Mark is such a wonderful person, every time we spoke he was excited and happy and genuinely engaged.

    We decorated our wedding with floral arrangements on the wedding arbor, flowers down the aisle, and used collections of beer/wine/whiskey bottles as vases for our centerpieces. We used mostly white roses and greenery, which complimented the scenery of the blue ridge mountains outside of the venue. The bouquets were gorgeous, and Mark was able to tuck in some rosemary and hops into my bridal bouquet and my now husband's boutonniere at our request :) Mark was easy to work with, flexible, and turned our crazy ideas into a reality. Thank you Creative Occasions!

    Mark did my flowers for my wedding this past June, and we seriously couldn’t have asked for a better florist! He was recommended to us by our venue, and he was just as amazing as they said. He is incredibly personable, accommodating, and reassuring. I don’t know much about flowers, so I just gave him a vague idea of what I liked and let him run with it, and I couldn’t have been more pleased! Every single detail was perfect, and it was so nice to know that he had every detail handled. As I’ve told a few other couples – yes, he’s a bit more expensive than some other options, but he is SO worth it! You are paying for his incredible expertise and his years of experience. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone and everyone! In fact, my family members have already ordered various other arrangements from him!

    Our family had an amazing experience working with Mark Frye at Creative Occasions. He was able to take my daughter's vision for her wedding and make it a reality. He was very accommodating to our crazy schedule and made adjustments to his proposals to meet our needs. I am so happy we chose Mark. His creativity and his attention to every detail are impressive. He is easy to work with and provides excellent service.

    Working with Mark Frye at Creative Occasions was an absolutely wonderful experience! His insights, professionalism, and advice were priceless and pivotal to the success our daughter’s wedding and reception. His ability to work seamlessly with all the other vendors was remarkable. The team at Creative Occasions exceeded our expectations. The beauty of the flower arrangements were beyond compare. The bouquets, centerpieces, linens, floral arrangements truly transformed the reception venue into magical, romantic, whimsical evening! We would not have changed a thing. I would recommend Mark and his team for any occasion. Mark is a true artist!

    Mark at Creative Occasions brought beauty to my wedding day through all the florals. My bridal bouquet was the most beautiful bouquet and totally matched my inspiration! My bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, and family flowers were all stunning. I can't forget about all the center pieces at the reception and the bouquet at the church! All just stunning. My favorite piece (besides my bouquet) was the tall orchid centerpieces! They really were a work of art. I highly recommend working with Mark at Creative Occasions for your wedding! He will make your vision come to life through his work.

    Amazing experience from start to finish. The flowers for our wedding were beyond what I could have ever imagined. Mark was amazing to work with and really listened to our vision and then added his experience to make our vision even better. We felt like we were part of a team rather than just a customer.

    I cannot recommend Mark enough! I only gave Mark a color scheme and a basic "feel" for the floral, and his execution was perfect. I also rented linens through Creative Occasions. It was so wonderful to have all of my decor needs taken care of with one vendor! My husband and I overheard comments all day long about the gorgeous flowers!

    Mark was absolutely amazing!!!! I could not have asked for a better florist for my wedding day. He was very flexible in making changes throughout the process as well as always willing to lend advice or a listening ear. He knew exactly what I wanted when I told him my vision and went above and beyond in areas I never would have thought of.

    I used Creative Occassion as the florist for my December wedding and I am so glad I did! Mark was wonderful to work with. When we met to go over my vision for the flowers he was easy to work with, fun, understood what I wanted and gave great ideas as well. One of the best parts was the affordability! On my wedding day the bouquets, centerpieces and boutonnieres were beyond what I had expected, absolutely gorgeous! Thank You, thank you thank you Creative Occasions!!!

    Mark Frye did a fantstic job with with his part in our daughters wedding. He met with us multiple times, listened to my daughters ideas, heard our budget, made suggestions and the results were spectacular. The flowers for the church and the wedding party were beauitful. The arrangements and the linens for the reception were all that he said they would be and more. His kindness is an added bonus to his talent!

So much more than "just a florist" - he absolutely delivered on the overall look and feel of the event from lighting, linens, furniture and of course the most stunning florals! So grateful to have had him and his team on our side for our big day!

    Mark Frye transformed the Taubman Museum into a Winter Wonderland for my daughter's wedding...first in the Atrium for the ceremony....then in the theater for cocktails...and finally back in the atrium for the dinner/reception. From the flowers to the lighting and the tabletops, everything was perfect. In my work, I used florists in big cities across the country. None topped Mark Frye.

    Oh my gosh! I don't think I could possibly put into words how absolutely wonderful the flowers provided by Mark and his team were. From the very beginning we got a very comfortable feeling working with Mark as we began to plan out colors, themes, and decorations. During our initial meeting with Mark we expressed the colors we wanted and some of our favorite flower types, and he took it from there. He spent a lot of time getting to know us and determining exactly what kind of wedding we wanted. Mark took the time to find out what atmosphere and overall feeling we wanted for ourselves and our guests.
    Mark was able to take the descriptions we gave him and put that into some of the most beautiful floral arrangements, linens, and decorations. If you are looking for a florist who will provide you a full range of services and give you and experience instead of just flowers the crew at Creative Occasions is who you need to call!

    If I could give Mark Frye 10 stars on here I would!! He was so easy to work with and saw my vision and what I wanted for the wedding day. The flower arrangements, the aisle decor, arbor decor, pedals down the aisle, boutonnieres, and bouquets MADE MY WEDDING DAY at Sundara. Not to mention Mark completely surprised me with having my favorite type of flower (peonies) incorporated in my flower bouquet. I was in COMPLETE shock with that!!! The table arrangements with the votives were breathtaking. I keep looking back on pictures of all the beautiful flowers and the flowers created my "antique" vision I wanted. MARK FRYE is the BEST in ROANOKE by far!!! He made my wedding day. Everything was so SO beautiful, I could go on, and on about the incredible work he did!!!!
