  • Maria is a true gem!!

    Verified review
    Allison S.a year ago

    Maria exceeded all/any expectations that we had for flowers! She was so lovely to work with, kept our traditional/classic wedding style in mind, and was so calm and communicative throughout the whole process. We loved her so much that she did the flowers for the bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and now my sister's wedding! She is incredibly talented and I want to have another event just to have a reason to hire her again!

  • An outstanding wedding florist!

    Maria did a wonderful job with the flowers for our wedding! Her creativity and artistry are truly outstanding. She was very helpful during our first consultation, and she really helped us figure out a good balance of types of flowers and a design that would stay within our budget. Maria’s execution and delivery on the day of our wedding was flawless. She brings a warmth and personal touch to every aspect of her service. We would highly recommend Maria!

  • Beautiful!

    The flowers at my daughter's wedding were exquisite from the table arrangements to the bouquets and the arch. The designs were exactly what my daughter wanted and I could not have expected any better! Well worth it. I highly recommend Maria for any event you plan with flowers.

    Maria, owner of Maria Schendzelos Designs, is not only an extremely talented designer but is also a dream to work with. She makes sure every need is catered to, whether it comes down to florals, rentals, timelines and so on, she always makes sure her bases are covered before, during and after the event. Maria is a well seasoned floral designer who I would recommend to anyone.
