Expressions of Love did an amazing job on the flowers for out wedding. We used succulents as the main focus of our arrangements and then we gave Shelley creative freedom to do the rest. And we were not disappointed!! They are also very responsive and in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this vendor to anyone wanting amazing flowers for their wedding day!
Could not recommend this florist enough! So very happy with the flower arrangements for the wedding. Shelley incorporated everything I was looking for and made beautiful beautiful bouquets. She was professional, courtesy, and timely. Highly highly recommend!
Planning flowers for my daughter's wedding in October, I found Expressions of Love Florist on our venue's preferred vendor list. We had only one brief meeting at the shop, leaving most of the details to be worked out via email since the bride lived in the midwest and the wedding was in Fuquay-Varina. Working with the bride's colors, Patrice and Shelley made flower suggestions and worked with us to design beautiful bouquets, the groom's boutonniere, and flowers for the cake. Shelley personalized the bridal bouquet with the bride's grandmother's handkerchief and a family heirloom cameo. Although I'm sure they had many other events to prepare for, they were always available for questions.
Shelley and her team are amazing! We were first connected with Shelley over a year prior to the wedding by Shawn Schlinder (who is also amazing) of Your Special Day Weddings and Special Events. We were immediately impressed with Shelley's warm and friendly disposition, her ability to listen and conceptualize our vision, and her genuine excitement about how she could enhance my daughter's wedding day. Throughout the process, as changes were required due to unforseen circumstances, Shelley not only approached changes in a positive manner, but also brought great creativity to the process that resolved any challenge presented . The end result was more beautiful than we could have imagined. So many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the flowers were. Shelley did an outstanding job of creating a particular atmosphere during the ceremony with the flowers and candles and continuing that same theme in a more elaborate way at the reception. She was particularly helpful in suggesting ways items from the ceremony could be reused at the reception. She kept our vision as the focus and enhanced that with her own special talents and creativity . She does amazing work but even more important is how wonderful she was to work with throughout the process.
We used Expressions of Love for our Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding. We were beyond thrilled with their output. Shelley went above and beyond to make our vision come to life. She added extra touches that we were not aware to ask for that truly made the event. She special ordered some items just to ensure we were able to achieve the exact look we were trying to achieve. She was a delight to work with- listening to our requests and politely adding in suggestions (not pushy for the purpose of making more money, some suggestions actually lowered our bill). The cost of her services was significantly less than others in the area that we priced out for the exact same output. If you are having a Raleigh/Cary wedding, do not let the Fuquay Varina location deter youâ€¦ it was a 15 minute drive to her shop and saved us thousands from the Raleigh florists. Without the Raleigh real estate overhead she is able to offer the same (or more) in size/quality of arrangements for a lower cost. We were so thrilled with Shelleyâ€™s work that our family has already used her for corporate events since the wedding and will continue to do so.
Magnificent job! Absolutely beautiful!
If you want beautiful, one-of-a-kind floral arrangements for your special day, look no further than Expressions of Love. There aren't enough adjectives for the word AWESOME that I can use to describe Shelley and her amazing team at Expressions of Love Florist!
From Day 1 at my first meeting up until the wedding, the service, professionalism, quality, and overall experience was way above average. I never heard the word, 'no' or 'this can't be done'...Expressions of Love was able to work within my budget to make my wedding 'vision' a beautiful reality...and then some! My mother wanted to incorporate some personal elements into my bridal portrait bouquet, and Shelley handled everything so wonderfully. When I needed her team to help put up some of my own personal items on a pergola, she gave an adamant 'yes' without a second thought. It was such a blessing to know I was in good hands, and I was so confident at how the bouquets and arrangements would turn out, I never once worried about it... Everything was just so perfect!
Thank you to Shelley and her team for a wonderful wedding experience. :)
Where do I begin with Shelley?! My mom and I met Shelley for a floral consultation in late December just for some ideas. I still wasn't quite sure what my theme for my wedding was or anything but we figured it wouldn't hurt to start thinking. I mentioned a few ideas to Shelley and before you know it, she put together some centerpieces and it was if she knew EXACTLY what I was looking for. What she did was absolutely perfect. Our flowers for our wedding were absolutely breathtaking and fresh and smelled so wonderful. She got our colors and accent colors perfectly and I honestly cannot say enough about how much I absolutely loved our flowers. I wanted some family heirlooms incorporated into my bouquet and Shelley and her team did it beautifully! Even some last minute changes I had in mind were nothing for Shelley and she was so receptive to all of my ideas. To Shelley and her Team and Expressions of Love, you made my day better than I ever could have imagined it. Thank you for all you do and for being so understanding about the misunderstanding between what glasses we could keep. You all rock!
I am not a very visual person and really had no clue what I wanted to do as far as flowers. All I knew, was I wanted the reception to be pretty. When I met with Expressions of Love Florist, I showed her the colors and explained the overall feel I wanted for the wedding. We looked over some examples she had, and I was able to tell her what I did and did not like. I was so excited the day of the wedding when I looked around and saw what a beautiful job she did from the bouquets to the center pieces. She did an amazing job and everything was gorgeous! I am still receiving compliments on the center pieces.
Expressions of Love is absolutely the best! Shelley Pearson 100% captured my vision of the perfect wedding. From day one she was professional and extremely knowledgeable. I was in awe when I walked into the wedding ceremony and realized that my dream wedding had become a reality. From the roses to the candles and crystals, it was the most romantic vision you have ever seen. The flowers weren't just flowers; they were a piece of art.
Expressions of Love was THE BEST!! Shelley is a true visionary and talent. My husband and I were extremely impressed with the professionalism and kindness of her and her staff. When I walked into my reception hall and saw my flowers, I was in absolute awe. They were so incredbly stunning I couldn't even believe this was MY wedding! Our guests felt the same way and even nearly a month later people are still commenting on the floral decor and how they were some of the most beatiful flowers they had ever seen. We had to switch some stuff around before the wedding and Shelley was extremely flexible and pleasant throughout the whole process. Being a bride can be very stressful (as I'm sure you girls are finding out) but it can also be very fun!! Shelley takes out the stress and adds MORE FUN and beauty! When I went to Shelley I had no idea what I wanted but she is such a visionary she was somehow STILL able to give me my dream wedding. I am beyond impressed with Shelley and Expressions of Love. PLEASE HIRE THEM if you want to make your dream wedding a reality.
Everyone at Expressions of Love were great to work with. They were very flexible in terms of delivery for us. I did not specify particular flowers only a color palette and style. Shelley really listened and the bouquet and reception flowers could not have been more perfect. Everything was absolutely beautiful!!
I could not have been any happier with Shelley and the flowers from Expressions of Love Florist! Shelley took the time to listen to my vision for my wedding, and came up with the perfect arrangements for me at a reasonable cost! I had the most gorgeous roses, giving the royal romantic feeling that I wanted for my special day. Shelley was most helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had and any changes I needed to make. I most definitely recommend Shelley and Expressions of Love!
My mom and I worked with Shelley for my June 23rd wedding. From the beginning, she was very responsive to what I wanted out of my flowers and immediately understood exactly what I meant - she even made some things better than I ever could have originally planned. She listened to everything we said, made worthwhile suggestions when needed, and was never afraid to give her opinion on something if we weren't sure. I can't believe how incredible the arrangements were, and it's all because of Expressions of Love! I'm the first of my friends/most of my young family to get married, but I will definitely be recommending Shelley to anyone who asks! Absolutely no regrets, everything was perfect.
Shelly was amazing. My previous florist gave me a quote and changed it at the last minute. shelly came to the rescue and gave me an honest opinion regarding what the other florist said. She was there on time and created amazing flower bouquets with a short suspense. I couldn't have asked for more. If I could give her a 10/5, I would because she was so attentive.
Shelley and Expressions of Love provided exactly the right service and quality that any bride and mother of the bride would want. She was so helpful from the very first meeting all the way through the finishing touches on THE day. She also offered great suggestions to help us stay as close as possible to our budget. As the mother of the bride, I wholeheartedly recommend Shelley and Expressions of Love.
Working with Expressions of Love was very enjoyable. The flowers were beautiful. They always respond to request in a very timely manner and they are extremely professional. I can't imagine how our event could have been any better!!!
Shelley did an amazing job on my flowers. I was unsure exactly what route I wanted to take with my flowers and she helped me with ideas and different color schemes. She worked with me with great patience and understanding throughout the whole thing. I trusted her completely with my ceremony decorations and reception. She set it up with candles and flowers that looked wonderful. I couldn't imagine a better look for my wedding!
Expressions of Love Florist did an amazing job with the flowes at my wedding!!!! I had an outside ceremony in a garden, and a large wedding party that would be pretty pricey to accomadate with so many bouquets. Expressins of Love was affordable and worked with you to find the price that would work. I also liked that they were not pushy when I told them I wasn't worried about centerpieces and other decor b/c we would be outside in a garden! Other places kept trying to convince me of all the things I needed (spend more $). Expressions of Love simply asked what I wanted and what I didn't want and did an amazing job!!!! Everything was easy..communication, delivery, changes I made, payments ect. I highly recommend Expressions of Love!!! Great flowers, great work!
I loved working with Shelley! She was so great. She listened to me and what I liked and disliked. Every little detail that I mentioned was accounted for on my wedding day! When I walked into the reception and saw my arrangements I cried. It was so much better than I envisioned thanks to her and her team. I am recommending her to all of my friends. I felt like she did not try to over charge me for my flowers too...that was important to me.
