I'm Melissa, the owner and designer at Wild Arbor Flowers. 

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t drawn to working with flowers. For years I worked with florists and in flower shops on both coasts, gathering up as much training as I could. Before starting my own business, I received professional training through the Michigan Floral Association and attended master’s workshops with the Little Flower School of Brooklyn and Francoise Weeks. I’ve enjoyed studio intensive trainings with Bloom Floral Design and Passionflower Events and am always looking for opportunities to collaborate with other designers. I'm a proud member of the Chapel Designers.  I'm also excited to be sourcing flowers locally whenever possible through the new Michigan Flower Growers' Coop.

When I’m not flowering an event, I can be found chasing my four amazing wonders who are growing up faster than I ever thought possible. 

I'm looking forward to meeting you! Let's get together soon!
