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.
