“….Elegance and style to the Nth degree! Ann-Marie recently did the flowers for my daughter’s wedding. Her personal touch and attention to detail was terrific! And her delivery, care and presentation of the flowers was very personal. Each corsage came in a beautiful keep-sake box; the colors matching the theme of the wedding! During the final prep as we were putting out the arrangements, it became evident that I had forgotten some minor details regarding the appetizer tables and buffet table. She said, “Not to worry, I will take care of it.” And she did – right there she put together some small arrangements and a large one. It was superb. Her personal attention and care saved me some very embarrassing moments. Thank you so much. Her attention to detail added to a very elegant affair! ” Ricki Kay, August 2013

I can’t recommend Ann-Marie enough! From the very start she makes sure you get exactly what you want!
She met with me at least 3 times and checks in every now & then to make sure she has all updates or changes up until your event. She made me a mock up of my centerpiece & bouquet, as well as a sample place setting.
My grandparents especially loved their keepsakes that were presented to them on my wedding day. Ann-Marie’s personal touch & personality shines! She prepared my arrangements, delivered them to the venue & set them up! She did not leave until she made sure everyone was satisfied. Every wedding I’ve ever been it just had someone drop the flowers off & leave, not Ann-Marie!
I was having nightmares of what could go wrong on my wedding day, but not one of them was ever about my flowers. You can’t go wrong with Twigs & Flowers by Design.

“Ann-Marie hands down is the best florist you could get for your wedding! She was an absolute pleasure to work with, gave suggestions for what would look good and delivered the most gorgeous flowers I have ever seen. Ann-Marie also does wedding planning and this was such a tremendous help the day of…the bride didn’t see any of the little things that popped up and she was able to handle the issues with ease. I recommend Ann-Marie to everyone I know!!! “

“Ann-Marie was amazing! I can’t reccomend her enough! It was 90 degrees at our wedding and her flowers held up all night and some even until the next day! She was there for us 100% of the way. We hired her as a wedding planner the day of the wedding and it would have been a disaster without her. She picked things up for us that morning and solved problems we didn’t even know we had. I had no idea anything was going wrong until she told me it was already solved and I didn’t have to worry about a thing! She brought extra flowers just in case some didn’t make it and everything looked perfect! I can’t thank her enough for all she did!”
Ann-Marie did a beautiful job providing all the bridal party flowers for our daughters wedding. I was so impressed with the lovely boxes and vases which everything came in. We will be contacting her next year when daughter #2 is getting married.
Our daughters wedding was 4 days ago. I’m still thinking and looking at all the beautiful arrangements you made for her reception. They are still stunning. Ann-Marie is so easy to work with, she listened to what our daughter wanted and we couldn’t have asked for more beautiful flowers that fit her theme perfectly. She made the day so stress free for me. I would highly recommend using Ann-Marie anytime you might need flowers. Thank you for helping to make our daughters day so wonderful.
Recently received recommendation:- Emily Egee -July 13th Cedar Springs Port Orchard.
Ann Marie helped make our wedding day gorgeous! We met multiple times throughout my planning process. She took time to get to know me as a bride, us as a couple, and what we envisioned our day to be. She even made the trip all the way out to our venue (in Port Orchard) beforehand to plan with me.
All of our floral pieces were beautiful, and delivered in boxes or vases that were easy to display and take home! Her attention to detail, professionalism, and quality of work are top notch. Highly recommend to all!! Thank you so much, Ann Marie, we love you!

Ann-Marie is fantastic to work with! She listens to understand your vision, then suggests, refines and implements the plan. She created stunning centerpieces, altar sprays and more for my wedding. Each one fit the space perfectly and enhanced the look and feel of our special day. She met with me more than once to be certain that we were in complete agreement about flower choice, style and placement in the space. She even acted as same-day coordinator at the venue! Full service – wonderful collaboration – beautiful implementation! Ann-Marie and Twigs and Flowers by Design are the BEST!!!

It was my absolute pleasure Jill……to be part of your vision in making it a reality for yourself and Scott on your special day!
Recently received recommendation from Shari regarding her daughters wedding 10/7/18:-
Ann-Marie is in a word, “Extraordinary.” Our daughter wanted a very simple wedding, and flowers that reflected her personality. Ann-Mari met with us and completely understood what our daughter envisioned. She provided the perfect flowers and arrangements for our daughter’s wedding and everything about the experience working with her was flawless. She is a warm, caring and truly understanding craftswoman who really goes above-and-beyond to add just the right floral touch. I cannot speak highly enough of her and her artistry
Ann-Marie is absolutely amazing! Throughout the planning of our wedding Ann-Marie was so patient with our constant indecision, listened to our wishes & provided important insight to make our day absolutely stunning!! The flower arrangements were even more beautiful than we could have imagined or hoped for! I had full confidence in every aspect that Ann-Marie was a part of and she more than delivered! I literally cannot say enough to recommend Ann-Marie. She is not only a complete professional, but a magnificent person and I am so glad she was a part of our special day!
I was looking for a florist on pretty short notice after having to cancel my wedding in Hawaii and have it at home in WA. I am so thankful that we found Ann-Marie. She was quick to respond, and she had a lot of great insight and was very professional. The outcome was absolutely gorgeous. So happy we with Twigs and Flowers by Design!
Thank you Kami, it was my absolute pleasure and hope you both had a beautiful day.
Spring – 8/27/2020:
We could not have asked for a better florist for our big day. Firstly, Ann-marie is charming, likable, and knowledgeable in her craft. Unlike many vendors that made me and my partner feel ignorant of what all was needed, Ann-Marie gave us information, steered us in the right direction, and always made us feel that whatever we chose would be correct. She was on-site for a very short time, just long enough for her to set out our table decorations and decorate our arch and yet every single person (vendor or guest) with whom she came in contact, later told me how simply delightful she was. We hired her because we wanted our florals to have a more organic feel, slightly wilder, to go with our outdoor wedding. She is a true artist and every piece that she made us was simply gorgeous. She worked hard to help us keep everything within our budget and consistently made suggestions that would help us reduce costs. In the end, we let her take artistic license with our idea and we could not have been more pleased. She knows exactly where and how to add the perfect pop of color to set off everything. Could not recommend more.

Highly recommend Twigs and Flowers by Design! Aly Palsson
Ann-Marie of Twigs and Flowers by Design is amazing! I provided some inspiration pictures and we chatted (virtually) a few times and she knew exactly what I wanted. On the day of the wedding, everything was perfect and her creative vision is spot on! Not only did I love every single piece in person, but they also photographed beautifully. Ann-Marie was also our “day of” coordinator. She communicates seamlessly with everyone and if there was a problem, we didn’t know because she just takes care of everything. Ann-Marie provides the peace of mind that every bride needs. I highly recommend Twigs and Flowers by Design! Thank you Ann-Marie for helping make our day so special.
From the very beginning, Ann-Marie was a DREAM to work with.
I reached out to her super last minute, just a little over a month before my wedding since my original plans for getting married in Texas were cancelled due to COVID.
Despite this, she was super accommodating and walked me through the entire process on her end and she knew exactly what to do to bring my vision for my wedding florals to life. She even purchased an infinity-hoop arbor to match the Pinterest-perfect aesthetic I was going for.
She was even able to fulfill some of the more custom-requests, including a small floral piece for my hat and an extra boutonnière for our officiant who was also a close friend. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she remained in constant communication with me, updating me on anything that she needed or special requests from me.
On the day of the wedding, despite all of the chaos that began in the last hours before the ceremony, Ann-Marie did a WONDERFUL job setting up the centerpieces and the arbor without my assistance.
She was truly a rockstar and knew EXACTLY what I had envisioned for my wedding and executed it PERFECTLY. I couldn’t have asked for someone more accommodating and flexible as well being on the same wavelength as me creatively.
Ann-Marie of Twigs and Flowers by Design is THE FLORIST you want to hire for your upcoming wedding or event.
Seriously. She’s incredible and knows how to make dreams come true!
Ann-Marie is an absolute gem! She helped plan the wedding for my daughter and son-in-law because they both lived out of town in separate states. Ann-Marie was patient, helpful, insightful, and provided a calming influence with all the stress of unforeseen postponements due to military deployment and the pandemic. She understood their budget and was able to help them make every penny count and came up with plenty of ideas to make their day a beautiful, meaningful day of celebration with family and friends. When my daughter first met Anne-Marie, it was to discuss the flower arrangements, as Twigs and Flowers by Design. My daughter was completely smitten with her. She knew this was the lady who had to do their flowers. Ann-Marie listened very carefully to the vision my daughter had for the look and feel for their wedding. The flowers and designs were exactly what they wanted. Ann-Marie set the tone and provided the magic of “A Midsummer Night’s Eve.” The table decor was simple and elegant. The greenery was perfect. The bouquet and boutonnières were spot on. Ann-Marie is creative and supportive. She worked diligently behind the scenes, not only as Twigs and Flowers by Design but also as a wedding planner, to make sure the events took place without conflict. The wedding couple and the guests were able to enjoy the day without worrying about the details. Ann-Marie was in control and was positively supportive and capable of handling any challenges with ease and grace. Absolutely Five Stars and more!
Incredible florist!!!! You will not regret working with her!
The whole process was stress-free! Ann Marie is very attentive to details and asked great questions. She has a wonderful knowledge of flowers and plants that will help create the setting you have envisioned for your wedding! Her warm and caring, thoughtful attitude made it such a joy to do check-ins with her. She and her husband were incredible on the wedding day. Very efficient and set up everything beautifully and I appreciated the check-in before they headed out.
Ann-Marie feels like family right away. She is a beautiful and hilarious soul, and does the most for her clients. She went above and beyond for us and helped our dream wedding come together like a fairytale! We love her and want her in our lives forever!
Stop looking for a florist!! You won’t find anyone better! I wish I could give 50 stars because 5 seams is inadequate. I was planning my wedding during covid and meeting all my vendors via zoom so it was pretty stressful and I often felt worried I wasn’t conveying what I wanted perfectly. I didn’t feel this way with Ann-Marie. After our first zoom meeting, I knew I was in the best hands. She took what I tried to explain to her and the little inspo I had on my Pinterest board and created so much more than I could’ve dreamed! I really had no idea what I wanted going in, but it was exactly what she made!! Every little detail was absolutely perfect and thought-through. The huge arbor piece she made was able to be taken down and seamlessly placed in separate pieces after the ceremony. She even put little bits of my colored flowers in the venue’s neutral hanging baskets so that everything would look cohesive! Ann-Marie also coordinated my wedding and THANK GOD SHE DID. My family and friends all loved her and keep telling me how awesome she was. I am genuinely sad that our time working together is over. Seriously, hire her!
Bridgman wedding 10/16/2021
Ann-Marie is so wonderful to work with. She did the flowers for my daughter’s wedding on 10/16/21. This was a wedding planned in 8 weeks, and even under the time crunch and lots of last-minute corsages, boutonnière, and table centerpiece additions, Ann-Marie remained flexible and willing to go with the flow. We couldn’t be happier with the work she did and the ceremony and reception were all that we hoped for. We couldn’t recommend her any higher. She is just wonderful.
