I am Melissa. Like all children, I would walk through the gardens at my Parents estate with my floral shears in hand, a tool belt full of zip ties and fingers green from the chloraphyll and dream about the magical weddings I would create when I became an adult -said no floral designer EVER. I love flowers as much as the next girl, and I did spend time with my grandmother in her small garden in Eastern NC.  However, at the ripe old age of 19, My sister and I decided to tackle my own wedding flowers. My friends started asking me to do flowers for their weddings until one day I got a phone call from someone who wasn't a friend or family member and a floral design business was born.  Five years ago, I walked away from a very successful insurance brokerage to pursue my floralprenuer dreams of creating custom event and wedding floral designs that fulfill every little girl's dreams.  After playing with flowers for over 15 years now, honing my skills, and learning from designers all over the world, What's Up Buttercup strives everyday to bring your visions to life-no matter how complex or simple they may be.

My clients find it most refreshing that everything is so thoroughly explained and costs are completely transparent. After carefully reviewing the details about all of the clients expectations for their event, What’s Up Buttercup takes all of the stress and responsibility, turning your vision into reality. Our clients are welcome to work as closely with us in planning or as far removed from this aspect of their wedding as they choose. Knowing that you have hired a detail oriented professional to handle your wedding flowers, allows you to concentrate on more important things, like spending quality time with your spouse-to-be!


Knowing what look you like is step one; your next step is contacting us at What’s Up Buttercup so we can ensure that you maximize your floral budget with custom, high quality, floral arrangements.
