"The flowers were stunningly beautiful. I am so happy with everything about our wedding - it really was a dream come true. Thank you for your incredible taste and love for your work!"

- Kathy Woodrell 



As a planner, working with Darling and Daughters is an incredible creative and professional process with results that always go beyond my expectations. Maria listens carefully to my clients and contributes her own ideas to make their wedding or event truly unique and personal.

When I come to Maria with a wedding design, I usually have a source of inspiration and some general concepts. She fully embraces even my most out-there ideas and elevates my concept by incorporating the best seasonal florals, greenery and produce. In our events together, she has created living aisle runners, a cascading waterfall of flowers, and a winding garland that scaled a tree. She is always up for trying something different.

I love her support for local farmers and artists, women-owned businesses and sustainable floral design. Working with her is always a smooth process that I thoroughly enjoy.

"Those flowers were beyond! They matched the venue, the mood, and my dreams so perfectly!"

- Erin Hartigan



"Goodness, where do I begin with all the wonderful things I could say about Maria and her work? I knew from our first conversation that Maria was the one to hire. She spent over an hour on the phone with me gleaning my vision for my day. She is so pleasant, so accommodating, overall just a downright joy. And her flowers were just as beautiful as she is! My friends and family still compliment me on her creations. I could not have asked for more."

- Danielle Oliver



"Working with Darling and Daughters was fantastic. The entire space looked stunning: tastefully decorated, warm, and festive. I had no idea that this could be accomplished just with flowers and a few other decorating touches. Our guests couldn't get over how beautiful the flowers looked."

- Spiro Roiniotis
