    Perfect Florist

    We could not have been any happier with our gorgeous flowers. Melissa's work fit the venue and the style we were going for perfectly. She is also the ultimate professional, answering any questions/concerns in a timely way, and can quickly adjust based on client desires (we asked her to decorate our rehearsal dinner space as well, and she delivered fully!). She far exceeded our already high expectations! We were stunned when we walked into the reception space for the first time! She can definitely pull off the "wow" factor! Highly recommend!

    Melissa was amazing. She is responsive & very detail oriented to be sure she understands your vision. She was so great to work with!

    Melissa was so easy to work with and quick to respond d to any questions or changes I wanted to make. When it came to day of she was behind the scenes hustling and working to hard to make every detail look perfect...and it did! My vision came alive even better than I imagined.

    Absolutely Amazing Arrangements! Triple A!

    I do not know how to express how incredibly gorgeous all the flower arrangements were. The bride's bouquet was exquisite and the table arrangements were stunning. Melissa is incredibly talented! She responded immediately to every email and matched the arrangements perfectly with the venue. You cannot go wrong by choosing Melissa Kuzma Floral Designs!!

    MKuzma Designs is Top Notch!

    Melissa is absolutely fantastic! I have recommended her to everyone I know that is getting married and will continue to do so for years to come! From the very beginning she is so kind and takes her time to getting to know you, your style, and what you like and don't like so she can create arrangements that are customized specifically for you. She is very knowledgeable, thorough in her work, and extremely creative. Also, she is so patient and willing to answer any questions you have in a timely manner (even if you feel like you are asking too many!). I kept telling everyone how much I appreciated her responsiveness whenever I would reach out to her! There was a time when we had to completely change our center pieces for our wedding and even though I was pretty worried at first, Melissa was so calm and collected and handled everything with such ease! Every single one of our floral arrangements, bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres turned out absolutely beautiful. She 100% nailed what we were going for and I believe she is able to do that because she truly loves what she is doing and cares about the people she is working with. If you work with Melissa, you will not be disappointed!

    Amazing - the best vendor we hired

    The 5 star review is not just because of how gorgeous the flowers were. The week of the wedding, our venue sprung on us that they would not set anything up at the venue (placecards, favors, guestbook, signs, etc). I called Melissa in a panic and she said "Anything I am allowed to touch, I will make sure if perfect". My husband and I walked into our venue on the day of our wedding and we were absolutely speechless. It was beautiful. Melissa and her team saved our venue, saved our cake, and make the most beautiful flower arrangements I have ever seen. If you are considering MKuzma for your florist, hire them! You will not regret it. To this day, my husband and I say that Melissa and her team are the reason our wedding turned out so amazing. Cannot express how much we appreciate them.

    She read my mind!

    I knew it was meant to be when my reception was one of the last days she had available for the summer. She made it easy and stress free. I gave her a few photos of what I was looking for and she knew exactly what I was looking for. The day of the reception she came and set up on time. Friendly to my guests. Just perfect!
    Everyone loved the arrangements so much that they started taking them home without asking! HA! It added a special touch to the evening that made it go from nice to elegant.
    I couldn't be more thankful and blessed.

    Stunning florals, affordable and friendly, professional florist!

    I cannot recommend MKuzma Designs enough. The owner and artist, Melissa, was wonderful to work with. I researched florists for weeks, met with four in person or over the phone (I talked to Melissa on the phone), and went with MKuzma based on the proposal I was sent (it was the closest to my then-incoherent vision and half the price of the nearest competitor, a large firm with offices in the city). When I say incoherent vision, I mean it - I wanted bright and tropical but not too over the top, I had a half-baked Pinterest with two different color schemes, I rattled off a bunch of names of flowers that don't really go together, etc. I was sort of nervous about how it would all come together, not least because I had no clue what I was doing. Over the months leading up to the wedding, Melissa contacted me now and then about ribbon colors, setup, etc., always in the friendliest and most professional manner, which helped ease my concerns, but I still didn't know what anything would look like. On my wedding day, Melissa showed up at the hotel with the most gorgeous bridal bouquet I have ever seen. It was, somehow, exactly what I wanted, despite not having explained it clearly at all. It also had every flower I mentioned for the bridal bouquet over the phone the previous March - including things that probably don't go together but somehow worked perfectly in the bouquet (orchids and calla lilies and roses, how?). The bridesmaids' bouquets were beautiful, and when we got to the venue, the floral arrangements worked perfectly in the space, which is a botanical garden and could have easily overpowered any florist's efforts, but didn't, because Melissa is just that good. In hindsight, the proposal she sent me several months prior reflected the flowers at the wedding almost exactly (factoring in changes we made along the way), so I could have known what everything would have looked like all along! In addition, she was just so delightful to work with - I did a lot of wedding planning from out of state (we moved just after getting engaged), so I didn't meet her in person until my wedding day, but I instantly thought we could have been friends. I'll stop here, but seriously, HIRE THIS FLORIST. It'll be the best of the many, many decisions you make all year!

    Look no further

    Look no further in a florist than with Melissa Kuzma. From our first meeting I knew she was going to be a pleasure to work with. I gave her a small glimpse of our theme and she took that idea and created a masterful vision of simplicity and elegance that transformed our reception space. Melissa is detail oriented, extremely knowledgeable, and willing to work within a confined budget. She brought extra flowers for the day of to ensure we were prepared and that every detail was taken care of. She was a calming presence in what can be a stressful process. I would recommend her to any and all couples looking for a beautiful ceremony and reception.

    Excellent florist, and definitely someone we would hang with :)

    When my now-husband and I set out to choose vendors for our wedding, we decided to hire people who we could entrust with our vision for our wedding. We wanted someone who was not only professional and good at what they do, but also just an all around good person. Melissa checked those boxes and more! She was extremely professional, and worked within our budget to get the flowers and designs that we wanted. She was such a joy to work with! She helped us every step of the way with providing advice, design ideas, and a soothing presence.
    Our flowers were absolutely amazing! We wanted jewel tones for our winter wedding, and Melissa definitely delivered. Everyone commented on how gorgeous our flowers were, and we even had a guest try to take a centerpiece (watch out for that!). Her work is outstanding, but most importantly, she herself is such a wonderful person. She met with us every step of the way - or consulted over the phone - and she was extremely timely with floral delivery and set up. She stayed for a good portion of our ceremony and reception to make sure that everything was the way we wanted it. Melissa was also very sensitive to our needs and last minute requests. As a bride, it was amazing to have someone who was so supportive, and able to lend a professional opinion on matters that I was unsure of or that were causing me last minute stress. I highly recommend hiring her for your wedding or any big occasion! I would hire again in a heartbeat :)

    Fantastic Experience

    Melissa is truly a delight. She realized my sister's vision for her wedding and went above and beyond with all the bouquets, centerpieces, corsages, and boutonnieres. Everyone at the wedding was in awe of Melissa's gorgeous flower designs. She was so accommodating with changes and wonderful the day of the wedding. She was incredibly helpful, patient, and kind and was lovely towards the entire wedding party and all the family and guests she interacted with. I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone planning a wedding or other event.

    I absolutely loved working with MKuzma designs and Melissa, was so sweet and all the flowers were even more beautiful than I could have imagined. She pays attention to detail and got the exact color scheme I wanted and was more affordable and attentive than any of the other floral companies I contacted. I was in love with our bouquets and have actually sent my bridal bouquet to be preserved

Melissa was very quick to respond to my emails and did an excellent job of explaining our options and providing alternate ideas to help us stay within budget, while still getting the look we were going for.

    When we were looking for flowers for our wedding, MKuzma Designs was our first choice. We were thrilled that Melissa was available to create the bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres. We just wanted simple and small which she executed beautifully.

    She is very talented and has a creative eye for making flowers a beautiful accessory for the bridal party, and also added a pretty colorful accent piece to the head tables. Overall great experience, and I highly recommend her to anyone who asks for weddings or any occasion.
