|Erin and Chris, June 2016Melanie is a freaking genius! After our first meeting you could just tell how passionate she was about the work she does. After meeting with a few other vendors it was clear that Lush was the one for our special day. Melanie was great at listening to what I wanted and offering ideas to make it better. I was obsessed with hanging something from the ceiling but the venue wouldn’t allow it. Melanie created a custom structure to make my vision become a reality and it was absolutely stunning! My grandfather passed away a few months before the wedding. He was an avid gardener and grew the most beautiful begonias. I really wanted begonias as part of our wedding flowers. Melanie not only made it happen but she was excited to incorporate this non-typical bridal flower into our day. The bouquets she created were so beautiful they left my mother and myself in tears. Melanie is such a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend that you select Lush for your big day! Thank you Melanie for making my day more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!|

When we first met with Mel we didn’t know a thing about flowers. Mel is full of knowledge and is a master of blooms. She went through many different types of flowers, focusing on which ones were in season and coordinating with us with the colours we had for our bridal party. We left our appointment a bit overwhelmed with all the information we took in but felt confident in Mel and her team to complete our vision.
The team at Lush Florals are a wonderful bunch! They dropped off the flowers on time and were so friendly and helped calm our nerves down. When they knocked on the door, I jumped because I was so anxious. The smell of the flowers definitely helped – they smelt wonderful! My mother-in-law grabbed some of the centrepieces that were left behind and filled it in her sunroom and the next day, it smelt like an indoor garden! So fresh and lovely!

|Kathryn and David, September 2015If I could provide Melanie and her team at Lush Florals more than 5 stars I would give them the galaxy!
My husband (then fiance) and I could not agree at all on what we wanted our flowers to look like. I was looking for something loose and “organic”, he wanted something very structured. We literally fought like cats and dogs about it! We couldn’t even agree on a colour! Lush was recommended to us by our wonderful wedding planner and we could not have been happier! Melanie took the time to sit down with my Fiance and I and really talk through what we wanted. She managed to find the most amazing middle ground that spoke to both of us.
Through the entire process she communicated everything that she was thinking, and she came up with some of the most amazing ideas (hello wine crate wedding sign holder with the most amazing floral spill, or boutonnieres on magnets so you don’t poke a hole in the suit)! She also was very mindful of our budget and always communicated exactly what the cost would be. Even when we had last minute asks, Lush was quick to respond and always came through with exactly what we were hoping for.
Even though our wedding is over, almost 2 weeks later people are STILL talking about how beautiful the flowers in both my bouquet and the centerpieces were. They made our room look beautiful and smelled amazing!
I can not thank Melanie and her team enough, she truly helped to make my day perfect!

Mel, is truly an artist. She captured my vision and exceeded all expectations for floral design and decor. She exudes the utmost professionalism and went beyond what a typical florist would… I feel as though she has become a friend. Her floral arrangements are things of magazines and dreams!

|Meredith and Craig, June 2015Melanie was a joy to work with. She listened to our ideas and offered lots of different options in varying price ranges that allowed us to get the look we wanted. The ideas we came to her with were executed even more perfectly than we could have imagined on the day of. Despite a very heavy rain which required a plan B she was able to adjust her plans for what was meant to be an outdoor ceremony and create a warm and beautiful chapel environment for us inside our reception tent. She is such a talented individual and we received so many compliments on our centrepieces, bouquets, the boys boutonnieres, and the beautiful garland she made for us… but all compliments go to her. My husband and I very highly recommend her.|
