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!

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.

I love Marisa. Words cannot begin to describe her talent and dedication. I’ve never planned any type of party before so I guess there is always a first for everything. Since this day was so important to me, there were many things for me to worry about already and many vendors needed quite a bit of handholding. Marisa never had me worried. I knew I could trust her judgement and that if I let her do her thing, I would be very, very happy. My faith never wavered and it proved rewarding in the end. The church, as she mentioned in her post, was named Mariner’s Church. It is a beautiful church but after Marisa had finished her work, the Pastor sought me out just to let me know what a wonderful vendor I had hired. He mentioned that in all his years at the church and all the weddings he had officiated, none were as beautifully decorated as mine. Marisa truly outdid herself.
Talent is an important thing to have, but at the same time, a successful vendor also needs to understand the client’s needs and be able to adapt. I was so worried about flowers until I talked to Marisa. I wanted something elegant but gorgeous and I was afraid I would never find someone who could make my dream a reality. Marisa had such energy and enthusiasm that even over the phone, I began to believe everything would be alright. With a reasonable budget, she will find the best flowers for you within your price range. Perhaps you won’t be able to afford all those expensive flowers, but her comfort zone is so wide, you’ll never miss it. I was so thankful that she was so willing to work with me, to take the time to learn what I liked and disliked and then try to find a middle ground with my budget using a variety of flower choices. I ended up going a bit over my initial estimate only because I kept seeing more of her work and couldn’t resist adding more things onto my invoice. I mean, it IS once in a lifetime! She was very kind and patient and was always prompt with returning phone calls and emails. She allowed me to add in items last minute without ever giving me an attitude even though I knew I should have thought of these things earlier. On the day of the wedding, she was prompt and on time and set up with no fuss. She and Ryan were very efficient and needed no help at all returning the venue to its original state. Before the wedding she assured me over and over again that she would represent me to the fullest and would definitely not ruin or damage any venue she decorated. She was right! The church had some pretty picky people and even they were delighted with her. She is a joy to work with and there is not a day that passes that I don’t give myself a pat on the back for finding her. She is truly a diamond in the rough and if you found her and hire her, you are in for a treat! You will always be pleasantly surprised and never have to worry about a thing. She is easy to work with, has a great attitude and willing to find ways to stay within your budget…honestly, what more could anyone want from a florist?
She honestly made my wedding day so very special. It would not have been the same without her flowers.

Marisa Perring of Empora Flora completed all of the work and carried out my décor vision for my wedding day. I came across Empora Flora on The Knot and her talents and skills did not disappoint. I have to say that Marisa’s personality and talent made Empora Flora one of my top vendors for my wedding planning process. From the beginning, Marisa and I just clicked and were able to capitalize on the momentum with how to make my vision come to life. This was made easier since the decoration style I was looking for matched more of the style that Marisa favors for weddings, which made the process very convenient. From the beginning, Marisa was so easy to get along with and she made you feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. Marisa ensures to provide thorough details on everything you need from a décor standpoint. She also will hear out your concerns and makes suggestions to accommodate any existing constraints. Marisa wants to be your partner to help make your vision come to life. She even helped to create a special display of paper cranes for us and worked that into the total package. The only constructive feedback I would have to give is regarding timely and thorough communication. Communication was never to a point where you never heard back from her but it took relatively longer than other vendors and/or follow-up was needed to hear back. All in all, the outcome of her décor and design work came out so beautifully for our wedding. Beyond the wedding, I also kept in touch with Marisa regarding some challenges we had with our photos after the wedding. She was very understanding and even gave us some of the high-resolution photos she took on our day. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to have partnered with Marisa on my wedding flowers and decorations. My reception was gorgeous, beautiful, magical – you name it – and I owe it all to Marisa and Empora Flora.

3 weeks before my wedding I had to let go of my florist. I scrambled to find someone and thats when I heard about Empora Flora. I contacted Marissa and we met the same day, she came to my aid! She took on my wedding after going over all my details. She was very honest and offered great advice when it came to certain design details which I totally appreciated. She was very thorough in all her paperwork and made sure to contact my venue with questions/concerns she had about the short amount of time she had to set up. She is incredibly professional and amazing at what she does. The day of she was there early with her crew of helpers to set up. Her work really speaks for itself. The centerpieces and arch she created for us were truly breath taking. I also had a flower market where she provided a flowers for my guests to make bouquets from. The reason I gave a 4 out of 5 in value is because of the flower market, I expected more for what we paid. Aside from that bit, everything else was my dream come true.

When my husband and I met with our DJ, we mentioned to him that we were still looking for a florist. He recommended Empora Flora and we visited the website and were impressed immediately. We quickly scheduled a meeting with Marisa, the owner of Empora Flora. From the first meeting, I knew her style and expertise in floral artistry would be the perfect match for us. Marisa came up with the most amazing and unique floral wedding designs on paper in just one day. We could tell that she had a burning passion for flowers and she put 150% of her time and energy to make sure we were happy and comfortable with all the decisions we made as a team. We told her that we wanted: blues, greens, and whites to come together in a playful, modern beach wedding. What she delivered was so much more than I could have ever imagined. On the big day, her flowers took my breath away. And even my husband’s (this coming from a man who didn’t want to spend a penny on flowers)!! She also created an amazing rose petal design down our aisle that our guests talked about the entire wedding day. Months later, our guests from the wedding still talk about it and all the other floral arrangements. From the bouquets, boutonnieres, aisle décor, and then to the center pieces….. no other florist could have come near in creating something so beautiful and perfect. Picking Marisa and her team for our wedding was one of the best decisions we did for our entire wedding planning process. We can’t say enough about Marisa & her team at Empora Flora. Simply put: best florist ever!

Marisa is so wonderful at her craft. She is truly passionate about every creation she is tasked with. I can honestly say that I’ve never met anyone so enthusiastic and energetic about their work.

From our first meeting I felt secure to hand over the reins. I'm normally a control-freak but Marisa was so excited about my wedding. I knew she would do an excellent job, so...I handed her a check and said, “I trust you, do whatever you like.”

Needless to say, when I entered the venue the day of my wedding, I almost did cartwheels; everything was impeccable. I even picked her up and spun her around. She is creativity bottled up in a pint-sized package.

Above all, my not-so typical, cascading bouquet was ga-ga-gorgeous. She has definitely set the bar HIGH when it comes to bouquets.

The centerpieces were amazing to say the least. My guests were fighting to take them home. In addition, my bridesmaids loved their composite bouquets as well.

The ceremony aisle was a blanket of red roses. And when I say blanket, I mean BLANKET! There was no white to be seen from the aisle runner underneath. It was the “ahhh” factor when the guests walked in. They all mentioned that they had never seen anything like it.

Though I am excited about my wedding finally being over, I'm a little bummed-out that I will no longer get to work with Marisa; maybe I can intern on the weekends, lol. She will most definitely get hired again for my baby shower when and if I get pregnant.

I enjoyed working with Empora and I HIGHLY recommend their services! A++++

Where do I begin? Marisa is absolutely a dream to work with. First of all, she is so sweet and easy to talk to. She really listens to what you want and offers her ideas and advice to really take your concepts to another level. Responsiveness is an A+ because I know how nerve wracking it is when a vendor doesn't responds to your phone calls and/or emails. You give her your budget and she can do amazing things with it. However, I would definitely NOT skimp. Marisa's work is AMAZING! Put your trust in her and she will not disappoint. She is truly a master at what she does. I would HIGHLY recommend Empora Flora if you want quality, fresh, creative, budget conscious, artistic, and just fabulous flowers. I have NO complaints. Thank you again Marisa! You made my dream wedding a wonderful reality.

Marisa's amazing. Period. The bouquets, boutonnieres and corsage she made for my wedding last weekend were beyond gorgeous. I got so many compliments on them.

I found Empora by accident while driving home one day. I had checked out a few other florists and the prices were crazy high. I'd also gone downtown to look into getting flowers done and it was "Tell us exactly what you want or bring a picture and we'll copy it." Yawn.

So when I drove by Empora one day I figured I'd check them out. Best move. I met with Marisa, the owner, and she was so easy to work with--a good listener with a good eye and lots of creativity. She asked me to bring pictures, and she used those to get an idea of the types of flowers, colors and looks that I like. But what she was most interested in was figuring out my personality and that of my wedding and venue to be able to give me the best floral designs to fit.

From talking to her and seeing photos of her other work, it was clear that Marisa knows her stuff, so I felt comfortable throwing in a few guidelines (e.g., nothing "avant garde"/"artsy") and then just letting her do her thing.

She's truly an artist with flowers. And that's exactly what I got–floral art. I couldn't tell you the names of half the flowers in the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsage, but I *can* tell you that the colors were totally us, the look was totally us and it all worked so well with the overall look of our wedding and venue! And the price was amazing!

I highly recommend Marisa and Empora!

I was afraid with my budget I wouldn't of been able to afford flowers other then those for the wedding party.

Everything was perfect... from the centerpieces, bouquet, to boutonnieres. She even got me peonies, even when another florist I met with said they were out of season. Amazing!

I really can't recommend Marisa enough and if I was getting married all over again I'd still pick her.

emporaflora is amazing!! At our first meeting, Marisa was enthusiastic, informative, and brimming with ideas. She is so passionate about her work and has such an impressive knowledge about both the flowers themselves and the art of design, and made the design process such an enjoyable one. She is so easy to talk to, is flexible with your needs, and makes you feel like you are her only bride. Since I was planning my wedding from Florida, we had to rely on email to communicate our vision – not normally an easy task! But Marisa is so good at what she does that when we asked for a sample centerpiece, she somehow created exactly what I was picturing in my mind - even though I had not found any photos of similar arrangements I liked or anything! My wedding day flowers were breathtaking and surpassed my already high expectations. She also delivered everything herself and went above and beyond to help us that day. I can’t thank her enough and I would hands-down recommend her to anyone!

I could not have asked for a better florist for my wedding! Marissa at Empora Floral Artistry is truly an artistic genius! From our first meeting my husband and I had no doubt she would do a wonderful job. She, however, did above and beyond a wonderful job. She took the time to listen to our vision and truly consulted with us on what flowers would work to achieve that vision and still fit in our budget.

All the flowers were fresh and fragrant. The bouquets and centerpieces looked like they came right off the pages of a high end bridal magazine. My bouquet almost two weeks later still looks good! My guest kept complimenting how beautiful my bouquet and centerpieces were. We couldn't be happier!

I would highly recommend Marissa to any bride! She is punctual, professional, affordable and an absolute delight to work with!

Since I had been very frustrated with the floral vendors that I've been meeting, the consultation with Marisa went very well. She listened attentively to our vision and worked with us to create one of a kind floral decors for our wedding. Marisa is VERY affordable and will work with your budget. Her creativity is amazing! Since day one of hiring Marisa, she was responsive to all our e-mails and scheduled meetings. On wedding day, everything (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) turned out as we've envisioned it. Marisa went above and beyond our expectations to make our day even more special. Everyone raved about the flowers. I couldn't thank her enough for all that she did for our wedding.

Empora Floral Artistry is fantastic!!! I can't say it enough! My floral decor was amazing for the ceremony and reception, not to mention my beautiful bouquet and toss bouquet. She is trully passionate about the work she does and this is one of the most important characteristics you should look for when choosing your vendors. She was easy to work with and after explaining my vision she knew what would work for me based on my budget. She is a floral artist and the best choice for your floral decor.

For anyone planning an event that requires floral arrangements, look no further than Marissa at Empora Floral Artistry. For my wedding, Marissa went above and beyond my expectations and I am still receiving complements from my guests. She is extremely easy to work with, even while dealing with the completely custom designs I wanted for my wedding. Her attention to detail was very thorough and her pricing was awesome! For anyone who wants the spectacular floral arrangements of a large company without becoming just a number in a customer database or for anyone who loves to support small businesses that deserve your business, I highly recommend Marissa. For anyone intrested in seeing the designs Marissa made for me, she will have photos from my wedding of her arrangements in 4-5 weeks.

We couldn't have been happier with Empora Floral Artistry. I would give them the highest rating for their product and service. They provided all the flowers for the special day, bouquests, reception centerpieces, alter arrangements, corages and the list goes on. Everything was done in white and ivory and it was beautiful. The arrangements consisted of hydrangeas, roses, dahlias, alstromeria. The reception centerpieces also included white pearl strands hanging throughout the design. WOW! Great design and great service. By the way, the flowers were so fresh, I had the centerpieces deplayed in my home for serveral days after the wedding. Thank You!

Marisa was FABULOUS!!!! She did the floral arrangements for my Wedding on May 1st 2010.
From the very beginning of the planning stages she was there to help. She met me to talk about my initial ideas and brought a floral mock up of what I told her I was thinking of. I decided it was not what I really wanted so I did some more research and thought of a new idea. Then she made me an additional mock up and it was exactly right. After changing everything about my original idea and going with a completely different look she made my vision and dream a reality. The flowers were absolutely perfect on the day of the wedding and I could tell that she went the extra mile to make it special for our big day. Thank You so much Marisa.

We loved our simple yet elegant flowers and so did our guests. Our personal flowers, centerpieces and ceremony decorations were just what we had envisioned and added to the venue rather than overpowering the exisiting decor.

Marisa listened to our ideas and offered her own opinions too so we could work to achieve the best solution for our vision.

We would do it exactly the same again and wouldn't hesitate in recommending Marisa and Empora.
