In ballet you can look for the pointed toe or the perfect tilt of the head to distinguish a prima ballerina from an amateur. With her background in ballet, Mary Love’s artistic eye delivers just that. A single perfect stem in exactly the right place can make an installation unforgettable. Her movement-inspired floral design will delight your guests and keep them reminiscing about that magical, immaculate night for years.
Owner and Lead Floral Designer,
Mary Love Richardson
From a childhood of crafting to college days spent falling in love with Impressionist-inspired painting, Mary Love has been obsessed with color and texture since the beginning. Where she used to mix paint on an artist’s palette, Mary Love now blends floral varieties to produce unforgettable color stories.
Since establishing Rosemary & Finch in 2012, Mary Love has built a beautiful business known for lush designs and creative installations.
At home, you can find Mary Love with her husband, Ben, on the balcony of their downtown Nashville high rise, probably drinking old fashioneds and naming all the dogs in the park next door. She and Ben travel often and widely, and together they have hiked all over the world from New Zealand to Tanzania to Patagonia, snorkeled among sea turtles in the Galapagos, and wandered the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.
It’s a Southern double name thing, don’t call her “Mary” - it’s always “Mary Love!”
From product sourcing and studio management to impeccable designing, Mackenzie is an integral part of every Rosemary & Finch event. She’s known for reminding us all that every week in the studio is a celebration of someone’s wedding week!
A Nashville native like Mary Love, Mackenzie is a former Division I volleyball player and coach. Her perfect day in Nashville would consist of making a big brunch, playing sand volleyball in Centennial Park, grabbing dinner and drinks with friends, and ending the night with a concert at Ascend.
Rosemary & Finch is proud to be floral foam-free and to use sustainable design practices. Our partners, Forward Flora, help us achieve this goal by providing eco-breakdowns that ensure materials are responsibly disposed of, reused, or recycled.

Fueled by peanut butter pretzels.
You might catch us debating which Taylor Swift album is best.
We’re masters of driving 19-foot lifts, even if both ML and Mackenzie don't love heights.
We’ll never say “no” to Panera’s iced green tea.
We believe in having courage and being kind.

Mary Love & her crew truly went above and beyond for our wedding. Her attention to detail and bubbly personality has you feeling like you’re in a beautiful Hallmark movie!

From our earliest planning meetings, Mary Love was such a breath of fresh air — full of positivity and enthusiasm and so much creativity.
