Our Team Work Ethic

From the beginning of the process, to the very end of an event, we strive to give you the very best florist experience. On an event day, we are on time with delivery, and we don’t leave until every flower is placed, fluffed, and the event manager/planner gives the OK to leave. Our crew arrives at the end of every event to tear down, and we make sure that we leave things just the way we found them. This is important to us, and we strive to manage ourselves professionally, with kind, servant hearts.

 

Melissa Broadwell | Owner | Lead Design

Flowers found Melissa in her early 20’s during a college internship for a Nashville record label. Charged with buying flowers for a label event, she discovered the seemingly underground world of wholesale flowers. About a year later, married and looking for a job, Melissa found herself immersed in flowers while working for that same wholesale company where she stayed and learned the world of flowers for close to 4 years. Like any budding florist, she began flowering for friends' weddings as a side job. When baby #1 arrived, she decided to be a stay at home mom and also continue with weddings. So in a small kitchen, working late nights with her husband, Melissa began to build Vintage Florals. Fast forward 15 years, she is now working out of a design studio in downtown Nashville and designing florals for a select 15-20 weddings a year. Melissa’s floral designs have been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Once Wed, Style Me Pretty, Magnolia Rouge, Green Wedding Shoes, Nashville Lifestyles Weddings, Grey Likes, and Wedding Sparrow.

Denise began working with Melissa while in the “small kitchen studio” stage of the business! Neighbor, friend, and chocolate provider, Denise came along at just the right time as Vintage Florals' weddings began to grow and more hands were needed on deck. Over the past 7 years, Denise has assisted in floral design for over 75 weddings and in 2017, Denise came on as an official member of the Vintage Florals' team as an associate designer. Denise beautifully delivers the Vintage Florals brand to smaller weddings, intentionally thinking through placement of flowers and greenery for each event. She is a wonderful listener and truly cares about making each event live up to her client’s expectations.
