This florist provides great work! We used them for my fathers funeral and my wedding day. They worked with me about an idea I had about making a newspaper flower(to represent my dad) and putting it in my bouquet, so it would be like my father walked down the isle with me. This was really my only concern about flowers and they made it happen to which I am truly grateful!

I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Shelley! Her work is STUNNING! Io say I was happy is an understatement, a month later and I'm still smiling when I think how Shelley's work with my flowers helped make the day so pretty! Weeks after my wedding I am still getting calls from family and friends telling me that my wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to, commenting on how gorgeous my flower arrangements were! Shelley was such a joy to work with, she sent me sneak peeks as she was working on my bouquet and other arrangements which made me feel special as the bride and super excited! The day of my wedding Shelley even had surprises for me nestled throughout-like me and my husbands initials in the ceremony walkway! Could not have had a better experience or prettier arrangements . Shelly was so patient with me working with my budget while making sure she was able to deliver on the look I visioned. I have found my florist for life!

Expressions of Love Florist provided the flowers for my wedding. Shelley has provided the flowers and plants where I work for years and I knew she would do a great job but she really outdid herself. All of the flowers (the bouquets, table displays, floating candle cylinders and flowers for the cake) were even more beautiful than I imagined. She definitely exceeded my expectations and I will continue to use their services in the future. I would highly recommend Expressions of Love Florist for any flower/plant needs.

Expressions of Love Florist was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Shelley and her team were a true blessing to work with! From the very beginning she helped me to visualize the look and feel of the flowers that I wanted. I don't really know much about flower types, but Shelley took pictures that I brought and heard all of my descriptions and made something more beautiful than I could ever have imagined! She worked within our budget to provide EXACTLY what we wanted. I am SO happy that we used Expressions of Love and I just know that the wedding day wouldn't have been the same without their beautiful flowers!! Shelley even sent me sneak peaks of the bouquets and arrangements as she was designing them the days before the wedding - which was such a wonderful surprise! Expressions of Love is without a doubt the best florist around!!

As the Mother the Bride, I wanted to make sure all of my daughters wishes were fulfilled, but also was concerned that the Father of the Bride wasn't tossing and turning over the expenses. To me, the flowers are what sets the tone and the feeling of the wedding.
Shelley and her team were able to give us all that my daughter was hoping for and more. She listened to what my daughter's vision was for her wedding day and then planned with her to make it happen while keeping us within our budget.
Shelley was very responsive to last minute changes to the order when we needed to add or delete corsages or boutonnières when we had cancellations.
The very last thing my daughter said to me when we were sharing our memories was…'OH the flowers, my BOUQUET, Shelley really made it all sooooo beautiful'!
Not much more does a Mother want.
Thank you Shelley…you truly do give 'Expressions of Love' in all your flowers.

Shelley was absolutely wonderful from start to finish! She listened to what I wanted my wedding to feel like and helped me with choosing the perfect flowers that would set the tone I described yet not break the bank. She even sent me a sneak peak of some of the flowers a few days before the event which just made me more excited for the actual day. I was head over heels in love with my bridal bouquet the day of my wedding, she totally out did my expectations! The glassware and table arrangements were all so beautiful it really did create the romantic setting I was dreaming of! I cannot thank Shelley and her team enough for all they did to make my wedding day perfect and my flowers something I will always remember!

When we first started planning our wedding, we received several different quotes from florists. However, once we met with Shelley from Expressions of Love we knew we had found our florist! She was an absolute pleasure to work with. Shelley listened very closely to what I had envisioned for my day and she made it come true! She even added extra eloquent pieces to make my ceremony and reception decor out of this world! The Stockroom 230 never looked so good! Not only did she do an outstanding job on my florals and tabletops, but she is the absolute sweetest and most genuine person to work with and made me feel like a queen throughout the whole wedding process. I loved getting texts with sneak peaks of my bouquet along with a messages stating how she couldn't wait for the wedding! I am so thankful we ended up hiring Shelley! I highly recommend her! In my book there is no other wedding florist that can even come close to Expressions of Love!

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 you… 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 Shelley’s work that our family has already used her for corporate events since the wedding and will continue to do so.

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.

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.

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!

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.

As MOB (mother of the bride) I wanted to make certain my daughter had exactly what she wanted for her special day. Shelley at Expressions of Love was able to make my wish come true with her unbelievable talent and absolutely gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces. Oh the way to church i stopped by the reception venue to view the flowers and when i walked in the room spelled wonderful and I was in complete amazement of how amazing the room looked. She knew exactly the look we were trying to achieve and to quote my daughter "it is like she was in our heads". Guest are still talking about the flowers as they should be. Also, the kindness she showed myself and my daughter is one of her gifts as well. You can never go back and do "this day" again and i am so thankful to Shelley and Expression of Love for a job well done.

She knew exactly the look we were trying to achieve and to quote my daughter "it is like she was in our heads". Guest are still talking about the flowers as they should be. Also, the kindness she showed myself and my daughter is one of her gifts as well. You can never go back and do "this day" again and i am so thankful to Shelley and Expression of Love for a job well done. Read less

The flowers at our wedding were absolutely breathtaking. Shelley and her team worked so hard at creating the look I desired and my guests were floored with how beautiful everything was- I owe it to Expressions of Love! I had a tall order and they completely delivered. Shelley was so easy to work with and was available whenever I had any ideas or wanted to clarify on anything regarding my arrangements. She had so many ideas for arrangements, since I wanted different heights and styles that would still look cohesive. She also created a hanging centerpiece for the room that was just so original, and don't get me started on the candles! She clearly knew that those were key in creating the romantic setting that I wanted. I highly recommend them, thank you so much Expressions of Love!!!

Bottom line up front: I give Expressions of Love Florist my highest recommendation! Expressions of Love Florist did the flowers for my only daughter's wedding. We met with Shelley and talked about colors, styles and arrangements. Ten days before the wedding I discovered that the church would not have flowers, so I had to make a last minute request, it was done without hesitation. When I walked into the bridal room at the church the first thing my daughter said was, "Mom, look at the flowers!" They were absolutely fabulous. I had even asked Shelly to incorporate a piece of my wedding gown into my daughter's bouquet. It was that special added touch. I can't begin to describe how the flowers looked at the reception site (The Cotton Room), they were unbelievable. I had people tell me that they were the most beautiful arrangements they had ever seen. Shelley took Jackie's vision and executed it flawlessly. If you are looking for a high quality florist talk to Shelley.

If you're searching for a florist who will give you personal attention + deliver on your wedding day vision, then Shelley (& her team at Expressions of Love) is your girl. I initially chose EofL because I didn't want the typical large, robust flower displays (or the price tag for them) that are usually found at weddings. After meeting with Shelley, it was clear she understood exactly what I wanted (flowers to match the southern/vintage/garden look I was going for), and I was eventually blown away by the final product on my wedding day. My bouquet was EXACTLY what I wanted (just-picked-from-the-garden flowers wrapped in twine) and the flowers on the tables (we used very old mason jars that belonged to my husband's grandmother and aunt as vases) were stunning. Shelley, thank you so much for helping bring my floral dreams to life!!

I was so pleased with all aspects of my wedding but the one vendor that I got more compliments about was my choice of florists. Expressions of Love Florist provided the most gorgeous arrangements and flowers than I ever expected. As many said to me and my Mom, they were absolutely breathtaking. When everyone walked in for the wedding and then saw how they transitioned the flowers to the reception it was just hard to believe something could be so beautiful. I am recommending them to everyone.

The flowers and bouquets were quite lovely, with the petals flawlessly clean. By the time we were beginning to get ready, the flowers were all set up and in place. They added a beautiful scene to our tables, and complimented our wedding colors perfectly. Thank you so much for making our day extra special! You were great to work with!

Shelly was really good at getting my vision for the wedding, building on my ideas, and turning them into reality exactly how I envisioned it and only better. She was also very flexible and willing to work within my budget. Not to mention that during our consultation, she had the best chocolate and creme cookies I have ever had in my life and I finished the entire plate! There are small details that I hope Shelly would have paid a bit more attention to, such as that we had to place our rehearsal dinner arrangement on a side table instead of on the dinner table, because it was too big for the table (I did give Shelly the measurements of the dinner table, but I guess neither of us remembered the restaurant still needed to put silverware and plates on the table), that one of our flower girls halo was too small and it took me a while to adjust it to be bigger, and that the toss bouquet was REALLY tiny (well she didn't charge me for that anyway), but the overall quality of her creations was still outstanding, and I would definitely recommend her to any bride!

Expressions of Love Florist did a fabulous job for our April 2010 wedding. After meeting with several florists before meeting with them, we quickly learned that flowers are not cheap and that there is a wide range of cost when it comes to weddings. Expressions of Love offered the best value and quality of services that any of the other 4 florists we met with. The owner took her time with us to find out what we were really looking for and offered suggestions that we had not thought of. Every time I called or emailed them they responded within 12 hours which was awesome! Not only did we get our flowers from them, but we also rented the unity candle and pillars for ferns in the chapel.

These ladies are not only adorable but absolutely fabulous! I knew I wanted them to do the flowers for my wedding when I saw their work at my venue about a year before my big day. When we finally met each other, they were extremely patient when dealing with me, my sister and my mother all of whom had different ideas about the vision for the big day. They put together samples on our first visit to the store to show us what the florals might look like. It was incredibly helpful to see the design right in front of us. As the day neared we had a few changes here and there and they were very flexible and accommodating to our changes. I have recommended them to friends and family and will certainly continue to do so. They are a one-of-a-kind florist in a sea of very average floral shops. I would use them again in a heartbeat!

I would highly recommend Shelley and Irene for all your floral needs, epecially your wedding day. My daughter met with Shelley and told her our budget and all the flowers she wanted to be included, as well as the design.

We used Expressions of Love Florist for our recent wedding in May 2014. Everyone agreed that Shelley and her team did a wonderful job with the event! The flowers were absolutely stunning! I was really excited about the flowers and, knowing this, Shelley texted me previews of the bouquets the day before so I could get a sneak peek! She worked hard with me prior to the event to make sure everything was planned perfectly. She was flexible throughout the process and even allowed me to make slight changes about a week before the event. She was one of the first vendors to arrive on site and had everything set up well in advance for the photographer to take pictures of our tables and ceremony space (which were beautifully decorated with many different flowers and candles!). Everyone agreed that the decorations were lovely and I would DEFINITELY use this florist again! I highly recommend Expressions of Love for your event

Shelley is so amazing!!!! I showed her some beautiful pictures that I had found and she completely "got it". On the day of my wedding my breath was taken away by how gorgeous the flowers were!!! She actually made the flowers more beautiful than the pictures I showed her!!! I showed her a gorgeous picture of a huge flower swag "rope" that was draped at the front on an arbor. Her's was so much bigger than the picture I showed her. I actually thought that one of my bridesmaid's bouquets was mine!! They were that big and beautiful! She was so easy to work with and completely hit it out of the park with the flowers! Rest assured!!! You should hire her immediately if you want someone that cares and that will understand what you want!

My flowers were absolutely gorgeous. I was right to put my trust into Shelley. I came to her with a slightly unusual idea and she helped me to develop it into something that would work for my wedding. They were a little pricey, but well worth the cost.

Easy to work with, friendly employees. The woman who dropped off the flowers didn't take it personally when my bridesmaid insisted on double checking everything to make sure it was right (when she had gotten married, she used a different florist and the wrong flowers had been delivered to her).

Once or twice I had a slightly slower response to an email than I would have liked, but that was getting close to the date when I was getting more anxious to be sure everything was right, and Shelley did still get back to me in PLENTY of time to answer my question.

Expressions of Love would be an excellent choice for any event you might have coming up, I know i'll be keeping them in mind for any other occasions where I might need flowers.

We had a very good experience with Expressions of Love Florist from the very first appt. to discuss the order. The flowers were at the church and set up as promised before we arrived and looked beautiful. After the ceremony they came back and moved and setup everything at the reception site as scheduled. My daughter (the bride) was very happy with what she saw when she walked in the dining area. Thank you for all that you did to make this go smoothly.

--Save your money and go somewhere else
We hired this vendor to do all of our wedding ceremony and reception floral needs. For all the brides out there who are thinking of hiring this company, I recommend that you look elsewhere if you are looking for something classy, elegant and sophisticated. If you are looking for something more earthy and passable, then this may be for you. At our initial consultation, my fiancé and I came armed with many examples of photographs, descriptions and ideas of what we wanted. For each category of floral needs (bouquets, ceremony flowers, reception flowers, etc), we showed multiple examples of the colors, look & feel, and style of what we had envisioned for our wedding. We explained everything clearly and pretty much handed to them what we wanted on a silver platter—it didn’t get much easier than that. For the style and colors, for example, we wanted our flowers to be dense and full, and no dark greens whatsoever. I did not want the dingy dark green earthy look, but instead, opted for a more springtime, beautiful, light-colored feel. We also had further conversations by emails in the months leading up to the wedding in order to refine and finalize our style and the number of arrangements we needed. Nowhere in those correspondences did we once change our “color scheme” for the flowers.
On the day of the wedding, the company delivered the flowers as planned. However, we were disappointed that they were not what we had imagined or specified. For example, instead of dense and full flowers on all the reception table centerpieces, they were replaced by mostly dark green stock interspersed with intermittent flower—a stem of a rose here, a stem there, and a small cluster of hydrangeas here, a small cluster there. Instead of clustering all flowers together to create a full look, they were just scattered about in the centerpieces, and mostly filled with dark green stock (again, we had specifically said no dark greens). The company should have told us ahead of time that in order to create the look we wanted, it would require more money. At least we would have been able to make a conscious decision and decide for ourselves whether to pay more or not. Rather, they kept reassuring us throughout the entire planning process that they understood exactly what we wanted based on all the photographs and descriptions we had provided them. Had I known they would take those photographs and then do a loose and overgeneralized interpretation of them, I would have taken my business elsewhere. Another example is that some of the flowers in my bridal bouquet had started to wilt and brown on the edges even though they were kept in water when they arrived at the church. The bridesmaids’ bouquets looked a bit better, though the arrangements of the flowers looked disconnected—instead of evenly mixing the white flowers with the pink ones (as was shown in all the photographs we provided them), the pink ones were clustered off to the left and right sides of the bouquet while the white ones were in the middle. A third example is the ceremony pew flowers, which again, were just comprised of 1 tiny stem of flowers with lots of ugly loopy, dark green, banana-leaf looking stock. What we had wanted (and paid for) was dense clusters of flowers tied to the pews. Again, they had promised us they understood our vision, but instead they delivered a cheapened version of what we had described and paid for. We would have gladly paid more to get what we wanted had they only let us know that the pew flowers would cost more to make them look more like they were in the photographs we provided. They did not even look close to what we asked for. A fourth example is this: in addition to our centerpieces, we ordered and paid for small tabletop “glass block” vases which we wanted them to stuff full with hydrangeas. When we got to the reception site, there were very few glass blocks stuffed full with hydrangeas (the ones that did have hydrangeas were skimpy). Instead, we saw a lot more of round, petri-dish looking shallow containers with 1 bud of rose floating inside. This looked nothing like what we had ordered. Other miscellaneous and more minor examples include the following: they informed us they could do magnets on the backs of the men’s boutonnieres and made note of this as our preference, but on the day of the wedding, all the men’s boutonnieres were backed by pins instead. Our total cost was upwards of $7000, and this was a small wedding for less than 100 people. This was not a cheap budget to us and we expected to get what we paid for, based on the numerous photographs depicting exactly what we wanted, our correspondences during the planning process, the descriptions we gave that were included in the contract, and the reassurances that they understood and would execute what we had requested. All in all, we are thankful we hired a higher-end photographer who made the flowers look more elegant in print than they were in person.
[Note: Yes, this vendor received a thank you note from us, for the service it provided. It had arrived on time and delivered the flowers as planned on the day of the wedding (which is noted in the review above and greatly appreciated). The note stated that the candles provided were lovely no doubt and enhanced the romantic feel of the place because that is true (it is what we had asked for). Note that there is no complaints about the candles above. Also, calling after the fact would have been futile, since the event was already over, but it was necessary to send a thank you note for the service provided, regardless of whether it met our expectations or not. Further, one could write a more objective review one plus year later rather than one written soon after the event while emotions are still high].

Expressions of Love Florist responded with the following comments:

I was very disappointed and shocked in just receiving this review. The last correspondence from this bride and groom was a personal and handwritten Thank You card that I received about a month after their wedding thanking me for the beautiful arrangements and compliamenting me on how the candlelight made their evening feel so romantic. I felt that I went above and beyond for this event even adding peonies (a flower that the bride LOVED) to the centerpieces when they were not to be included based on their budget for their tablescapes. I did post some of these photos on our main page from this event. I do know that every individual has a right to voice their opinion and I am thankful that anyone can exercise that right, I just wish that I would and been contacted immediately after their event instead of sending me a sweet thank you and then waiting a year later voice their concerns. If you are reading this response, thank you for making it all the way to the bottom of this review. There are always two sides to every story. Rather than try to dispute all of the points this client has made, all I ask is that you look at all our other reviews that consistantly reflect our overall 4.9 rating of satisfaction with our services. Thank you.
