Hi, I am Michelle, Owner and Lead designer here at Belle Flora. I realized my true passion for flowers when putting my first floral arrangement together almost 20 years ago. From there I began a career in a retail florist environment. The wedding and event aspect of the floral design trade was always what made my heart sing, so in 2014 I shifted focus to creating beautiful and unique designs for weddings and events. I am a believer in education and keeping up with the trends of the ever changing industry. I have studied Floral Artistry at Rhode Island School of Design, Event Design at The Wedding and Event Institute, and attend workshops and conferences often. I have also been lucky enough to work alongside some of the most talented designers in Rhode Island.
I haved lived in Massachusetts my entire life, finding endless inspiration from the ever-changing seasons and various landscapes of New England. I love to design with natural elements and unexpected treasures. I personally select each bloom used in our designs to ensure quality, color,and shape is just perfect for the aesthetic envisioned for your event. My design style tends to be a bit whimsical and am naturally drawn to bold colors. I have an admiration for uncommon vessels, finishes and details.I work closely with each couple to create truly one of a kind, personalized events and enchanting experiences.
