I highly recommend booking Occasions by Emily for your wedding/event floral needs. Michelle was responsive and had no problem giving me multiple quotes due to my ever changing mind! I sent a photo from Pinterest for my bridal bouquet and she made my Pinterest dreams reality! She also did a great job with providing and installing the greenery for our ceremony arbor and wedding signs. My bridal bouquet is still as vibrant and colorful as it was on my wedding- over 10 days later!

Absolutely loved working with Michelle. I showed her photos of what I wanted and she made my vision come to life. I couldn't have been happier. The flowers were stunning! She is very sweet, helpful and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to both flowers and decor. We ended up renting a lot of our decor items from her which was very convenient because we had a destination wedding. Her pricing is also extremely reasonable and worth every penny! Would highly recommend using Occasions by Emily for your wedding. Loved it all!

PLEASE use Occasions by Emily!! Michelle is the perfect balance of organized yet laid back. She was able to guide us through the process and take all of our ideas into account. The final product was so above and beyond what I had even imagined--I am so grateful! The flowers/arrangements were stunning and could not have been better. On top of that, people's consistent comment on Michelle was how friendly, warm and helpful she is. I would recommend Occasions by Emily any day!

Michelle and her team are just fabulous! I would very highly recommend. We used them to help select vendors, since we were not from Asheville, as well as help to coordinate the day of, and to do our flowers. I have so much to say, I do not know where to start! First of all, their flowers are AMAZING. I wish I could figure out how to attach a picture to this review, because the pictures speak for themselves of the flowers, but I will tell you - they are amazing. Michelle took my vision and ran with it, in terms of the flowers. She went above and beyond to make them look absolutely stunning. I had basically given her my colors, budget, and a few details that I loved and created exactly what was in my head! EVERYONE commented on how beautiful the flowers were. We had a very large bridal party and family, so my only bummer moment was that my aunt, sister in law, and one of the wedding VIPs did not get their corsages/hair pieces. But otherwise, everything was absolutely stunning. In terms of coordination - oh man - I couldn't have gotten through it without Michelle. She is equal parts creative helper, organizer, and therapist ;). Her team did a great job - including IRONING our linens the day of! She also helped to manage some of the more difficult issues/logistics we had with our venue, and helped to manage my stress that came from those issues leading up to the wedding, and the day of. Things ended up going off so smoothly because of Michelle and her team. It was such an amazing day, and there's no way we could have done it without Michelle and her team!

It was great working with Michelle and Annette. The flowers were wonderful, and Annette was great to work with. It's so nice to have someone on that big day that can take care of everything and remains calm no matter what! And it's great to have the flowers and wedding coordination be the same company. We even used some of their rental items (table numbers, signs etc) that made things really easy. I'd definitely use them again!

Aside from my dress, I planned my entire wedding while abroad in Spain. I hired Michelle as a day-of coordinator, but she was much more. She was extremely helpful piecing together all of the little details. The day of the wedding, Michelle and her assistant ensured all of the vendor contracts, set up and break down at the venue went smoothly the day of the wedding. She made sure the bride and groom were well attended-to so that the only thing we needed to think about was being present in the moment. I'm so happy we had Michelle there to coordinate our special day!

We used Occasions by Emily for our flowers (Michelle) and month of coordination (Tania) for our small, intimate wedding at the Biltmore Estate, and we are so happy with our decision!

In first reaching out, Michelle was very responsive and professional. (As a side note, I had other florists in Asheville who would not return my calls/emails or would charge minimums for floral orders ($3,000 is too much for flowers for a 30 person wedding!), so working with Michelle was a refreshing change!) During our initial call, she got a feel for what I envisioned for our floral arrangements, and within a day, she turned around a detailed proposal, using pictures from my Pinterest board to make sure we were both on the same page. Brilliant! She uses Google documents those contracts and proposals, so we can both make edits about changes or suggestions. This was really helpful when I decided to change my color scheme a month before the wedding! I made the edits to the proposal with what I wanted, Michelle and I discussed by phone, then she nailed it on our wedding day! I absolutely loved all of our bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces!

Tania was also absolutely amazing! Even though we had a small wedding, we knew we would need help coordinating with all our vendors and making sure the transition from the ceremony venue (conservatory) to the reception (champagne cellar at the winery) went smoothly. She did that and so much more! When the champagne cellar began leaking from all the rain (Hurricane Joaquin) and we were told we may have to change reception venues, she made sure we got our wine-themed wedding in the cellar! From taking over all my DIY yourself decorations (including some last minute hot gluing), to setting everything up (better than I could have imagined), to dealing with our difficult musicians, to having safety pins on hand for a dress tear… I could go on and on!

Overall, Occasions by Emily made our dream wedding a reality!

I loved working with Michelle at Occasions by Emily! She understood my vision, had fantastic ideas to keep me within budget but not skimping on the look and feel, and was so easy to work with. While weddings are stressful to plan, Michelle was flexible, accommodating and quick to get back to me with thoughts and suggestions. I felt that Michelle quickly learned my style and was such a great compliment to our planner to pull together a gorgeous and stress free day for our wedding. Top notch and would definitely recommend them! Thanks for making our day exactly as we envisioned!

Michelle and her team are awesome! They are super easy to work with and easy to talk to. Her team will walk you through your big day and make sure everything is perfect. Best wedding decision I made was asking ObyE to coordinate my August 2015 wedding.

They also created all the flower arrangements at my wedding. I gave them some pictures of what I had envisioned for my wedding and they surpassed my expectations. Everything was beautiful with vibrant colors. When people ask about my wedding and I show them pictures they always, always comment on how beautiful the flowers were.

They do an excellent job of creating your vision for the wedding. They listen very well and are there to help every step of the way. My stress was very much diminished because they communicated with all the other vendors and put everything into place. I couldn't have asked for a better team
