I’m Michelle and I run Live. Love. Flowers., a wedding and special event florist based out of Bettendorf, IA. I do business from my home, where I live with my two canine helpers. They love weddings and meeting new couples as much as I do! I service the Quad Cities area and can travel to other areas if desired. I have done weddings in Rockford and Des Moines but am not opposed to any location!
I work a full time job at Claire’s so I often schedule evening appointments (which I think works better for everyone). I try to keep appointments relaxed and fun, so feel free to bring whomever is great at helping you make decisions. Grooms are always welcome (but don’t feel like they have to come - they don’t usually care about flowers).
In my (very limited) spare time, I love running and adult coloring books. In the summer, I try to spend time on my parents’ boat.
I fell in love with weddings when I was 16 and worked in a flower shop (for 5 years). I started this business when multiple friends asked me to help with their flowers. I had no idea it would grow to be this successful, but I absolutely love it! I think people often skimp on their floral budget because they think they are just going to die anyway. Please keep in mind that your flowers are in almost every single picture of your wedding, so you want to love them! (Plus, you can donate them to nursing homes or hospitals after your wedding for a tax deduction).
I love getting to know new couples and helping them create the wedding of their dreams! There’s no cost for consultation so let’s get started today! I’ll send you an estimate within a week of our initial consultation, so you can decide if we are a good fit. If you need help selecting other vendors, I have a great list of people I love to work with in each category. You can check them out here.
