My career in floral design started in 2003 when I began working for an independent flower shop in Edmonds, Washington. I started my own business in 2009 and have been doing floral arranging for weddings and special events ever since.

I do floral design because I love working with flowers and being able to use my skills to bless others. For this reason, I charge considerably less than the typical florist. For a free consultation or even just a chat, email me at



Melissa is an amazing florist. She is gifted in making arrangements that are looser and full of life. It added a softness to our photos and the event—to have a dynamic nature to the flowers. She did a great job in our consultation meeting to help us come up with colors and flowers we like. I wholly trusted her to find great flowers (even in January!) to fit our vision. Our wedding flowers were above and beyond what we'd hoped!  -Maggie

Everything I requested, Melissa delivered.  We had a limited budget for flowers, but Melissa used her expertise to craft the most gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres!  She was also very friendly, responsive, and punctual.  Melissa arrived early for set up and though she was given just a short time frame to arrange centerpieces, they still looked amazing.  The ceremony and reception flowers added the perfect touch to our venue!  I would highly recommend Melissa. -April

Melissa did such a fabulous job with the flowers for our wedding! From the colorful bouquets to the table decorations, everything was beautiful and tasteful. We got so many compliments, both from other experienced wedding vendors and from our guests. There was even another wedding at our venue right after ours that snagged the gorgeous garland she put together to use. Even beyond the superb quality of her work, Melissa was great to work with. She was prompt to respond, creative, and professional. She was willing to work with our budget and thought of details I hadn't even considered. She came early to the wedding and even helped us set up the tables with the flowers. We couldn't have been happier, and I highly recommend Melissa Cushman Floral Designs for any upcoming wedding!" -Rachel 

"Melissa made the bouquets of my dreams! She completely understood my vision for my wedding and delivered even better results than I could have imagined. She was responsive, reliable, and had a wonderful attitude. I heard positive reports of her work and attitude from others who were helping to set up as well. She really delivered from start to finish!" -Amy

"I stumbled upon Melissa's work through a wedding blog I was following. I was blown away by her talent. I knew I found the perfect florist for our wedding day. She was fantastic, friendly and such a pleasure to work with." -Britta
