Hello, my name is Emily Meade; I’ve been a florist for twelve years now. I have always had a passion for gardening and all things flowers! Since childhood I’ve studied plants through many adventures in the woods with my father, as well as through planting my own gardens. In 2009 I decided to further my plant education at Vermont Technical College, where I studied Landscape Design and Sustainable Horticulture. During my first summer home from college, I opened a farm stand, which I currently co-own with my Grandfather. Since then we have been growing roughly 10 acres of vegetables, which we sold in two locations for four summers and continue to sell at our Bristol, VT location. Please feel free to check out the link to our page for more information about the farm!
During my summers home from college I worked both at my farm stand as well as a local floral shop. During this time I learned a lot about the basics of plant care, floral design, and the handling and care of flowers. Through my work at the flower shop I fell in love with floral design and decided once graduating college I would continue this line of work. Shortly after graduation I began working in the floral department at my local supermarket. My manager of two years, taught me everything she knew and inspired me to continue my floral journey. I then was offered an opportunity to manage my own department, so I transferred locations. After gaining enough knowledge and experience to start out on my own business, I opened M’s Wedding Flowers. M’s Wedding Flowers is based out of my home in Duxbury, VT, where I live with my husband and our many fur babies.
