Meredith came to her love of flowers and arranging in a twist of fate. One day while working at Vetri restaurant she was asked to arrange the flowers. From the first clutch of stems and vase she had found her path. Since then Meredith has been designing and creating arrangements for some of Philadelphia's most prestigious restaurants. Meredith has studied and apprenticed with numerous florists whom she admires – making bouquets and arrangements, designing for weddings and other special events. Stems was born of her desire to collaborate with others in making their memorable moments. From the bouquet you bring to express care, to the frame that surrounds the moment you make a vow, Meredith ensures it is beautiful and uniquely yours. Meredith's floral design studio is located in East Kensington where she lives with her husband Billy and two adorable cats, Henry and AngelBaby.
Simply put, Meredith is the BEST! Not only was she so accommodating in making my budget work, but her designs blew away my wildest expectations. Her creativity and attention to detail with the flowers were the icing on the cake to my outdoor wedding. The swags, bouquets and centerpieces brought the whole venue/wedding party together seamlessly - giving the whole event a really beautiful and cohesive vibe. With all the details a bride has to juggle down the home stretch, Meredith made sure my flowers were the last thing I had to worry about. Her confident yet easy going attitude gave me total peace of mind heading into the big day. The next morning at brunch, the flowers were the #1 thing my guests couldn't stop raving about! I never knew how much of a difference going with a great florist would make, until Meredith proved that the details and personality flowers bring to an event can make all the difference. - Stephanie and Andrew Burns - 9/15/17
I couldn't imagine my wedding without Stems. I wasn't the type of bride who had every detail and color scheme planned out, but Meredith took what little vision I had and turned it into reality. She listened to me, made me feel comfortable and created floral designs more beautiful than I imagined. I couldn't ask for a nicer, more open person to work with on the most important day of my life. - Carolyn and Jonathan Satlow - Married 6/17/17
Meredith worked with us every step of the way for our 300 person wedding at the Union league. She was incredibly professional and detail oriented and her arrangements are spectacular. - Robert Domenick and Mason Lane - Married 12/12/15
What Meredith was able to create for our wedding was beyond what we ever could have imagined. This is because Meredith is not just a florist, she’s an artist whose medium happens to be flowers. Meredith has the rare ability to understand her client’s vision and turn it into pure magic. The bouquet she created for me was ethereal and elegant. She dreamed up the most enchanting instillation of smilax and drooping tulips that served as the backdrop for our ceremony, which was by far my favorite detail of the entire day! I feel so lucky to have worked with Meredith and to have her incredible talent captured in all of my wedding photos and memories. - Amy and Troy Crichton - Married 7/29/17
