Book Maria for your wedding (or even next non-wedding related event)! She was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process. Her creativity, attention to detail, and general passion for design are amazing; you can tell how much she truly cares about her brides and clients. I knew nothing about florals when I first met with her and ended up with the most beautiful wedding flowers; we didn’t stop getting compliments on the arrangements for weeks. She spent so much time planning with my mom and me and I trust her completely. We planned out everything to a tee, including doing some centerpiece trials, with the exception of the bridesmaid bouquets. I didn’t know what the bridesmaid bouquets would look like in advance, but trusted her to create something magical, and they were everything I could have dreamed. Book her as your florist! You will be thrilled you did.

Maria is FABULOUS!! She made our wedding at Tribeca Rooftop on July 1st, 2016 absolutely beautiful!! She knows what she’s doing when you may have no idea! I went in to see Maria with an idea and she completely took it and ran! I went to see a total of 8 florists, and Maria was the one that stood out and was willing to work with me. It helped so much that Maria knows the staff at our venue and was able to creative our centerpieces that hung from the ceiling because she was so familiar with the space and what she would be able to talk the venue into letting her do! (HA!) Maria makes you feel like family and is completely there for you during your whole process! Whatever she touches is GORGEOUS!! She’s so knowledgable and spits flowers off the top of her head that’ll make your head spin! She is so hands on, she makes sure every piece is PERFECT and IN PLACE otherwise she will make sure of it! I can’t put into words how extremely talented and how much of a wonderful person she is. Maria is definitely worth it!!

To say Maria at MC Nino is amazing would be an immense understatement. Having the opportunity to have Maria as our florist for our wedding was incredible. She is special and so talented in a vast number of ways. We fell in love with Maria from the moment we met her. She is one of the most positive people we met during our whole wedding process. The amount of advice she gave to us throughout the entire process was invaluable. We always loved talking with Maria and probably have made a new friend for life. Her personality draws you in immediately. She put as at ease during the stress of wedding planning and always made sure we were so happy. Maria’s talent as a wedding designer and florist is out of this world (just look at her website and you will see what we mean). The design she did for our wedding was beautiful, classy, elegant and aesthetic. Every detail was picture perfect and exactly what we envisioned for our black tie wedding at Guastavino’s. We highly, highly, highly recommend using MC Nino and Maria for your wedding. She was better than the best!

Maria is wonderful! She did an exceptional job creating the bridal arch, centerpieces, cocktail table flowers, the most darling flower girls crowns, gorgeous bouquets as well as boutonnieres. Everyone commented on how beautiful all the flowers were and how effortlessly modern everything looked. Maria has great energy and was personally on hand before, during, and after the wedding to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you!
