Marina is very nice. The flower arrangements she delivered were beautiful, and though they were in a similar color pallet, they were not what I wanted or what was detailed in the contract. In addition, she is extremely difficult to get ahold of. After multiple attempts calling and emailing, I found texting worked best. It was frustrating doing business this way.

Marina is the owner and operator of this consummate flower design business. I come from a family of florists, but Marina's taste and design skills were amazing! I had met with several well known florists but Marina had a refined artistic sensibility that stood out, and I knew after our first meeting I wanted her to do my wedding. Even though I had specific ideas in mind, she understood my vision immediately as I discussed my clippings with her. She is a sincere and lovely person and offered her creative suggestions generously. I'm a perfectionist but I knew I could trust her artistic sense! She delivered as requested and both my wedding and reception were more beautiful then I could have imagined! Most of our guests' (and my husband) complimented Contessa's stunning flowers for our fantastic day!

The prices were reasonable. Everything was done to my liking. She even threw in a few bonuses for me. It did take her a bit to respond sometimes but she ultimately took care of me.

Contessa Flowers were the most professional and gorgeous arrangements I could have ever imagined. This was my second wedding held at the Annapolis Yacht Club and I only had two conversations with Ms. marina Crowley about what I was looking for and theme of the wedding. Not only did she nail it with the flowers but the flowers set the mood of the wedding and made the reception sparkle. She did exactly what we talked about and even went beyond to make sure that all the children involved were taken care with special flowers of their own. Each table's arrangement could be taken home by guest and my bouquet was so gorgeous that I've got to preserve it in some way. It is like a dream! Marina was easy, fun to work with and professional. The price was amazing and I am grateful beyond believe that I chose Contessa Flowers to do my wedding. Bravo Marina and thank you for making our memories truly special with your craft. Warm regards, Gray

We worked with Marina through a uniquely challenging time for her, but she remained committed to our wedding throughout. Our first meeting with her was so fun, she was into our ideas but very honest about what would or wouldn't work based on our budget, the season and venue. She is a no-nonsense lady but also friendly and fun to work through ideas with. We were pretty hands off in flower selection, and I didn't realize that the florist is someone I likely wouldn't see on our wedding day. There is something very reassuring about working with a vendor who is so respected in her community (Annapolis/Baltimore). By the time our wedding rolled around I knew we could trust her to do a great job, and she did. Bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and ceremony flowers were all perfect. I only knocked down a few stars for responsiveness, but we also booked her very far in advance and I may have been a little aggressive up front (or just an excited bride to be!).
