It’s our job to focus on the wedding, so that you can focus on the marriage.

How it works

Once I receive your inquiry, I’ll send over a questionnaire for you to fill out. 

After I review your questionnaire, I’ll reach back out to discuss how to move forward. Depending on your needs, we’ll either proceed with planning via email or schedule a consultation, where we will talk through color palette, design options, budget, dream arrangements, and lots of other goodies.

After we meet, I will create a custom proposal for your specific vision.

Once you are ready to book, you can sign my contract and pay the deposit.

We offer full-service set up, delivery, and tear down for weddings over $4,500, and studio pick up for smaller orders.

Money on a mission

With every wedding I book, a direct donation is made to The Archibald Project. Click here to learn more about The Archibald Project and their fight to end the global orphan crisis.

Stems by Em also donates design services to Canopy’s fundraisers and other events.  Click here to learn more about Canopy.  By booking Stems by Em, you are supporting global refugees seeking safety in Northwest Arkansas!

“How much do flowers cost?”

I so badly wish that I could provide a simple formula to how much flowers for a wedding or event would cost, but each event is custom, down to the smallest details, therefore requiring a unique budget.  Season, personal taste, proximity to a “flower holiday” like Valentine’s or Mother’s day, flower preferences, number of bridesmaids, and even guest count are all large factors in your floral total.

One of my top priorities is partnering with my clients to work toward a floral order that is both exciting and falls into an investment total they are comfortable with. Please keep in mind that COVID-induced supply chain challenges have brought the cost of fresh flowers higher than ever. Before scheduling a consultation, I would recommend gathering a handful of photos that inspire you (knowing that Pinterest often only provides images for high budget weddings, photos of spotless silk flowers, and/or perfect flower stems), and have a rough idea of your top priorities.

If you have further questions regarding how to budget, please reach out! I would love to help you come up with a financial plan that you feel confident in.
