Marissa @ Empora Flora was fabulous. She has a great sense of style and was able to make recommendations on our floral arrangements that turned out great. She is so caring and really takes the time to understand what your vision is on your wedding. Her passion for flowers and her artistic flare allows her to create the most wonderful arrangements you can imagine. Marissa truely works to make sure that you are happy and tries hard to work within your budget.

We had her do two large alter arrangments, ten centerpieces, several small arrangements for our placecard and guest book tables, all the personal flowers and corsages for our family. Marissa arrived on time on the wedding day and set up everything so I did not have to worry about a thing. She worked diligently with our wedding planner to make sure everything turned out ok.

I would definitely recommend Empora Flora to any bride and groom.

I just got married September 8th, in Yorba Linda.

Over a year ago, I was recommended to visit Empora Flora by 2 different people.

I did, and Marisa and I immediately hit it off.

She is real, she gets you. She's not frilly, fake, fancy, cheesy, she's just real. You can tell she works hard, that she always means well, and she does not say anything to you for the sake of just saying what she thinks you want to hear, or reading off a wedding vendor script (super typical of most wedding vendors I learned; they have a protocol, a range they work in, and don't know how to work or speak outside of it, almost robotic).

I showed her some photos, she lit up. She showed me ideas, more photos, and we just talked and talked about ideas, plans, flowers, colors, etc.

She's just so EASY to talk to and deal with. A breathe of fresh, honest, scrappy, raw, talented, artistic air.

Prices were so great, so reasonable, and you just know she puts her life into each project, she has a TRUE passion for this work, and it shows.

I booked her immediately.

Fast forward to my wedding day.

A few random wedding things went wrong, tiny things. I was stressed out, major anxiety, but seeing the bouquets in my bridal suite when we arrived....led me to feel: calm, gorgeous, elated, excited, and ready for the day. The bouquets not only made me cry, they made my bridesmaids cry!!!! That's huge!

They were lush, colorful, dramatic, everything and MORE than I could ever imagine. She took my pea-brain sized ideas and just ran with them. Amazing.

On to the reception.... people GUSHED over the amazing centerpiece arrangements. People fought to take them home. People asked me during the wedding what kind of flowers they all were.

Marisa and Ryan worked their butts off that day and night, and it showed through and through. Every detail was covered, everything was just perfection. PERFECTION.

Photos attached here too!

Just WOW. That's one, out of the many, words I could use to describe Marisa. I actually found Marisa on Yelp, and knew RIGHT AWAY, that I wanted her as our florist. The day we met Marisa, we had a meeting with another florist scheduled directly after our meeting with Marisa. However, I couldn't even pay attention at that meeting because I KNEW Marisa had to be our florist. Not only is Marisa unbelievably talented and creative, but she is SO nice and easy to get along with. Whenever I stopped by her studio, I always ended up just hanging out for a while. Even though I liked doing a lot of things on my own for the wedding, I completely trusted Marisa 100% with our flowers. I gave her pictures of the ideas I had, but let her take creative control. Our wedding day was so beautiful, and our centerpieces were unlike anything I had ever seen before. She was always able to make suggestions and really cared about her clients opinions. She also was more than willing to work with our budget - which was really important. Words will never be able to describe just amazing I think Marisa and her work is. She is an amazing person with undeniable talent.

My photographer (Richelle Dante Photography) recommended Emporaflora, and taking her recommendation was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Marisa Perring is AMAZING! Emporaflora was my favorite wedding vendor to work with, and I had a lot of excellent vendors! First of all, Marisa is not only talented in floral design, but she is also a wonderful person! I instantly felt like she was my friend.

Compared to other florists around this area, Emporaflora prices are extremely reasonable. I truly believe that Marisa can make your wedding look amazing no matter what your budget is. She is very flexible and can work with any reasonable budget. I decided to up my floral budget after seeing more of her work, and I do not regret it one bit. Marisa is truly an artist, and her creativity is amazing. I highly recommend for you to give her your budget and wedding colors and then let her "do her thing." I created a pinterest board so that she could get a sense of my style and colors, and then I left it up to her.

On the day of my wedding, the flowers looked even more stunning than I could ever imagine. Marisa and her crew did not have a lot of time to set up, but they somehow managed to get everything done on time. I got SO MANY compliments from guests on my florals! They told me it was the prettiest wedding they had ever seen! Seriously, the table arrangements were spectacular, and my bouquet was so gorgeous! The flowers were to die for! Even the venue's staff and my photographer were gushing over the flowers! The venue's coordinator said she had never seen the venue decorated so beautifully. All of my guests were from out of town, so I didn't expect anyone to take the flowers after the wedding. But people actually took the centerpieces home even though they were traveling!

Marisa, thank you so much for making my wedding beautiful! You were a joy to work with and booking you was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process!

Thank you so so so much Marisa!

Marissa is amazing and so talented!!! She nailed it when I asked for something modern, and not to "foo foo". Emporaflora really made my wedding. And it was so easy. I told her what I wanted, paid my deposit and moved out of the way. I even changed a color later and they took care of eveything. The wedding was so beautiful, everyone loved it and most importantly....we did!

Thanks Marissa and Ryan for all your hard work! You are worth every penny!!!

i had met marisa through friends a while back and she had also done some floral design for the salon i worked at, so when i first started planning my wedding, there was no other choice! i knew that she was a sincere person, as an artist her talent was unsurpassed. i had a very unique vision for my arrangements, and i can not begin to explain how wonderful it was to share it with her and know she truly understood. discussing ideas was such a pleasure, and probably the most fun i had in any of the planning process (yes, even over cake tasting). there is absolutely no denying the amount of love she has for what she does, and i really don't think there is any better quality someone can want in their wedding florist. in this industry full of people just looking to make a buck, marisa is one in a million. she did everything in her power to create my dream flowers with my not-so-dream budget, and stayed honest throughout the entire process. i felt so comfortable that i left the final designs in her hands and knew they would turn out exactly how i wanted. that speaks more than anything else because i am a total control freak! the day of was above and beyond my wildest dreams! the flowers were so beautiful when i walked into the room and saw the centerpieces it took my breath away. both ryan and marisa worked so hard to make everything perfect and they things they did exceeded my expectations. when my photographer sent me the photos, i found a picture of ryan up on a ladder helping my maid of honor hang lanterns in the reception area. this is really how great they are! my entire family commented on how much time marisa spent diligently arranging rose petals in a swirl design down the aisle. her little touches were everywhere, and without them my wedding literallt wouldn't have been the same. at the end of the night my guests were staking claim on which unique center piece was theirs, as marisa spent the time to make each one beautifully different.

I found Marisa through a Yelp search, and was *floored* by the reviews when I first read them. They were so awesome, and I just felt in my gut that Marisa was "the one." Thus, despite having received "florist referrals" from our caterer and the event coordinator, I went with my gut and hired that adorable girl with the black-framed glasses. Needless to say, I am so thankful that I did.

Now, be cautioned -- when you first go to meet Marisa in person, you will not drive into the parking lot of some fancy, schmancy florist shop, passing a bunch of balloons, cards, bouquets, and lawn ornaments on your way to the counter. Instead, when going to meet with Marisa for the first time, you will drive into an industrial complex, walk through a warehouse door, say hello to her dog, and possibly meet her boyfriend, who works with her.

Unconventional? Yes. But so is Marisa.

And who needs some cheesy storefront anyway? I certainly didn't -- and trust me, neither will you. Not when you see the magic and beauty she creates.

So, I meet with Marisa, we hit it off immediately, and we begin to discuss what I'm looking for. From that point forward, she takes the reigns, bends over backwards to give me exactly what I want, and surpasses ALL of my expectations (which were quite high and virtually un-surpassable to begin with, or so I thought).

The flowers on the day of our event were nothing short of gorgeous. People at the tables were arguing over who got to take the centerpieces home. The cocktail table arrangements were equally as stunning. The corsages and boutineer were perfect. Marisa thought of everything. Seriously. Who knew a gift table could look so beautiful? And just when I thought the 4-tiered cake couldn't look any better, Marisa snazzed up the table it was on and proved me wrong.

Okay, so I'm gushing. But it is truly deserved. I adore Marisa, she made our event perfect, and I will never use another florist for an event. Ever.
