Mary Love was a vital part of our wedding and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Mary Love was one of the vendors I knew I wanted before I was even engaged and when it turned out my planner had worked with her before, it was a no brainer. She was the only florist we interviewed and one of the easiest decisions of the planning process. Our wedding was pretty gritty and edgy and floral was an important design component to bridge the gap between urban and romantic. Mary Love was incredibly matter of fact about what was doable and what wasn't and it seemed like she doubled every penny we spent, from a value perspective. I gave her a broad overview of what I liked and didn't like and let her pretty much run with it. I didn't really have an idea of what my flowers would look like and they defied all expectations. All my bridesmaids literally gasped when she brought in our bouquets! Check this one off your worry list. Book her, show her what you like, and be thrilled a year later.
Mary Love is a dream to work with. She is sweet, genuine and caring, and works with you to make your vision a reality. She is thoughtful and creative, and as you can probably see from her blog, she has an extremely diverse ability to create gorgeous arrangements for all seasons and all occasions.
She was able to make a last minute change for us on our wedding day due to rain, and created a breathtaking display around the front-door to our old southern house - the perfect photo backdrop! She and her team crafted a fabulous hanging arrangement over our dance floor that was truly special. To this day, we continue to receive comments on how beautiful the flowers were and cannot thank her enough for her hard work!

I 100% recommend Mary Love and know you will not be disappointed if you book her for your event. I had a very limited vision for flowers at my wedding. I believe my initial instructions were whites/grays/greens, use some air plants, and to recreate a hanging candle installation I saw on her instagram. She took my incredibly vague ideas and worked her magic on them. Everything she created was one thousand times better than I had ever pictured, and we received so many compliments on her amazing work. Mary Love is a pleasure to work with, and she will undoubtedly create the most wonderful arrangements for you and your event, no matter how precise or vague your vision is.

When it came to choosing flowers for our wedding, I had no clue what I wanted. All I knew was that I wanted to give Mary Love the reins. I’d long admired her thoughtful designs and artistic eye so I trusted she’d know what to do. It was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding! At our consultation, Mary Love asked great questions to understand the feel and spirit of our wedding and was respectful of our budget. She instinctively made our flowers so personal to us — pomegranates because we love food, Icelandic poppies because Iceland is one of my favorite countries, succulents for my husband’s love of the west, and bright colors for the season. It takes a truly gifted person to tell a story through florals and she did it! Mary Love was responsive throughout our wedding season, a joy day of, and, six months later, we STILL have guests commenting on the florals. When friends get engaged, one of the first things I say is “Please hire Rosemary & Finch!”

From the first time I met Mary Love she was nothing but genuine and beautiful which translates to all of her work. I had Rosemary and Finch as my wedding Florist in May 2017. I am an event coordinator as my profession, so I will say that I was not taking my vendor choices lightly. Mary Love went above and beyond - she foraged my family's property for greens and vines before the wedding, she ordered special tulips form California as a surprise (where I lived for 5 years), she incorporated peonies from my great grandmothers peonies bush and the list goes on. The details of my wedding day were some of the most important and meaningful elements, and Mary Love made sure that the florals were a huge part of that importance. She is nothing but professional, talented, honest and beautiful. I am looking forward to working with her for my clients in the future!!

I cannot say enough about not only Mary Love’s work, but also her sweet personality! She is an absolute joy to work with! My bouquet was beyond anything I could’ve ever imagined! It was so perfect! She also did a hanging arrangement above my head table that again was absolutely stunning and perfect! She went above and beyond and I could not have been more happy with the way everything turned out!! Would without a single doubt recommend her to anyone looking for an incredible florist!
— Sarah, Bride
Though we had a clear overall vision for our wedding day, all we knew when it came to flowers was that we wanted them to be big, beautiful, and set the tone for our family and friends. Mary Love expertly filled in our gaps to pull together arrangements that accomplished everything we hoped for and more, all the while kindly working and re-working our budget as needed. My bouquet was too beautiful to set down during the day and one of my master gardener friends even commented it was her "favorite bridal bouquet ever!" And Mary Love's arches! You will swoon! Her organization, communication, and confidence makes Mary Love easy to trust, but her kindness and ability to listen is what you will cherish!

Mary Love is just INCREDIBLE. I fell in love with her work after searching for “inspiration” photos for my own wedding and finding that 90% of my saved photos had one thing in common—they were crafted by Mary Love. She has the ability to bring your vision to life. After a short conversation and a few photos of what I envisioned our day being like, she absolutely nailed it. Mary Love is so great about responding and adjusting your needs (I was emailing her the WEEK of the wedding with additions and she obliged without hesitation). Florals were the one thing I splurged on and I don’t regret it for a second. I had so many compliments on our bouquets and table runners made by Mary Love! I would 100% recommend Rosemary & Finch and wish I could do it all over again just to see her beautiful work come to life!

Flowers were at the top of my list in terms of what was most important for our wedding day. After A TON of research, I continued coming back to Mary Love. When I reached out she was super responsive and quickly set up time to meet with my fiancé and I in person. She is SUCH a sweet person and I felt like she really listened to my vision, understanding I didn't have an unlimited budget. Throughout the process I changed my colors and styles a couple of times and she was always supportive and responsive. Reflecting on my wedding day, my flowers were absolutely my favorite detail. Mary Love exceeded my expectations. My head table and arch (if you work with her your MUST let her do your arch) absolutely made my day. Not to mention the bridal bouquets and chandeliers. She is one talented lady!

Mary Love is an absolute dream to work with- I cared about my wedding vendors being kind-hearted and easy to communicate with, and she went above and beyond! I love her floral style- natural, vintage, and custom-designed to the bride's interest. When I met with her for the first time, she did a great job of suggesting certain flower combinations while also listening to my dreams for what the flowers would look like. We received many compliments about the flowers at my wedding, and it's certainly because of Mary Love's talent! My wedding was in the category of "garden/whimsical" and I think Mary Love's skill set really helped to bring this out- I loved the organic, gathered look of my bridesmaid's bouquets. I highly recommend Rosemary & Finch.

Mary Love was one of the first people I reached out to after I got engaged. I had followed her on social media for awhile and was so eager for her flowers to be a part of my wedding. Not only is she the kindest person you'll ever meet, she has such a passion for her craft and it's evident in everything she creates. All of the floral designs she did for our wedding were out-of-this-world beautiful, from the bouquets down to the greenery on the tables. My favorite was the flower crown she made for me that I wore for 2 whole days after my wedding, until the leaves started falling off (I had a hard time letting go.) Mary Love is so lovely to work with and understood my vision perfectly. I cannot recommend her enough!
— Klaire, Bride
I never planned my wedding in my head. I was not one of those brides that had "dreamed of this day my whole life" and so when I started planning I was really lost. I went down the Pinterest rabbit hole and hoped that was good enough to show vendors and then let them guide me in the right direction. Mary Love made things so easy for me! We met at one of our favorite coffee shops (a good first sign) and then as I showed her my vision, she laughed and pointed to a picture and said "That's my work!" I instantly knew she was the right person for the job. It felt like planning a party with my friend, and I still consider her that. My wedding was a vision of beauty, and I can directly attribute that to Mary Love's attention to detail, eye for beauty and hard work. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!

When I started looking for a florist for my wedding, the main thing that I was searching for was something that looked natural, yet elegant. I am not very well versed in the field of florals, so Mary Love was the PERFECT person for me. I was able to talk to her about my color scheme, my theme, and my hopes for the wedding, and she took all of my scattered thoughts and turned them into the most beautiful floral arrangements that I could have ever dreamed of. From the ceremony backdrop, to the bouquets, to the greenery on the tables, and more, everything was perfect. Mary Love was a dream to work with, and I would choose her again in a heartbeat!
— Emily, Bride
I contacted Rosemary and Finch based on the recommendation of top notch vendors...Rosemary and Finch comes very highly rated in the Nashville community. I had an idea of what I wanted and tried my best to convey that to the owner, Mary Love. She was incredibly responsive and very easy to work with. I had a vision for my wedding florals and she took that vision and made it a picture perfect fairytale! Everything was beyond perfect and our guests wouldn't stop talking about the floral hoops on the wall and the beautiful arbor draped in greenery. Mary Love is an extremely creative, professional and lovely person. I'm so honored she was part of our big day and would recommend her to every bride wanting a quality floral designer!!
— Molli, Bride
I was not one of those girls that enjoyed every single part of planning my wedding, but Mary Love made picking out and envisioning my flowers my favorite part of the entire experience. She was so easy to work with, and created the most beautiful flower arrangements I have ever seen. I received more compliments from guests on our flowers than any other aspect of our wedding - and I must say I have to agree! Not only are her arrangements and vision beautiful, but she is one of the nicest people I have met. I would recommend any bride, no matter what type of flowers you are envisioning, to work with Mary Love and be confident that your wedding flowers will be the best in Nashville!
— Michelle, Bride
Mary Love is absolutely the best. With her warm and welcoming demeanor, kindness and patience throughout the wedding planning, and her professionalism and expertise, Mary Love Richardson at Rosemary & Finch exceeded our expectations of a wedding florist. I have no doubt she is the reason our venue turned out so beautifully and Mary Love was able to put together what I envisioned even when I wasn’t totally sure what I wanted myself. Every other vendor including wedding planners, coordinators, and our photographer raved about how kind, timely, and competent Mary Love was both in communication beforehand and on our actual wedding day. If you are looking for a highly talented artist that makes you feel like you are talking to a friend, Mary Love is your girl!

First of all, I’ve never been a flower person. But, after seeing how creative my florist and I could get with the bouquets, I can now say I have a whole new appreciation for them! But, as I described it to her...I like weird, unpredictable flowers. I met with Mary Love, of Rosemary & Finch, and told her that I wanted something abnormal like a red cabbage. And she did it! I also told her that I needed eucalyptus EVERYWHERE because I have an Aussie fiance. Success. I had pointed out several flowers that screamed to me, not knowing any of the names, and she instantly knew what I was talking about and made everything even better than I had envisioned.
— Jenna, Bride
I was taken aback when I spotted Mary Love's creations on the morning of my wedding. She totally delivered on everything I had requested but also managed to capture my vision in ways that I hadn't even imagined. Her arrangements were unique, vibrant and beautifully executed. I'm pretty sure they ended up receiving more compliments than my dress! I was distraught when I had to leave them behind when we left for our honeymoon.
