Lush is a wedding and event floral company that was formed from a love for botanicals and is inspired by the undulating textures and vibrancy in nature, art and life.

We simply adore wedding and event florals, it is all we focus on. It makes us speak quickly (usually with elaborate hand gestures), work passionately and dance (It does make for a better bouquet)!

Our approach typically marries romantic and delicate with undulating textures, in garden inspired designs.


Lush is entering it's 13th year in business servicing Weddings and Events in the NIagara region and outlying area's. Owner and lead designed Melanie Ripa has a background in horticultre and landscape design that helps to craft her garden stlye aesthetic.

Beautiful Arrangements

Melanie at Lush Florals was great to work with, especially since I truly had no idea what I wanted for our wedding. During our meeting she showed me a bunch of options which allowed me to easily figure out what to select, and come our wedding day I was not disappointed!
Everything was beautiful and the bouquets were the perfect size and weight. The arrangement on the sweetheart table was perfect and the floral arrangement on the arbour my dad built for us really tied together the ceremony decor.
Due to all the changes leading up to the day (due to the pandemic) we had to contact Mel a bunch of times to request changes/additions to our order, and Mel was extremely responsive. It took a lot of stress off us.
We are very happy we chose Lush Florals for our wedding!

Stunning Work!

Melanie and her team made such an amazing impact on our wedding day. Words alone can't describe the beautiful florals we had on our wedding day - the pictures speak for themselves. Melanie was easy to deal with, prompt, and really listened to what we wanted for our dream wedding - and delivered!

It takes a village and Lush Florals!!!!

Let me tell you something about Mel and her team. They will never back down and they will not be stopped, come Hell or high water - not even by a car accident on the day of your wedding and a broken wrist!!!! Mel's artistic vision is out of this world and under her work description, she should add that she creates MAGIC. There is no one as talented as her. No one!!! The floral arrangements at our wedding were nothing short of spectacular, thanks to her amazing team. Mel is a sweetheart and a warrior all at once and I could not recommend her enough! When they say it takes a village, it is absolutely true. A village and Lush Florals.🌹🌸🌷🌺 Everything I had hoped for and much, much more - Mel and her people knocked it out of the park💫👏✨

When we first met with Mel we didn't know a thing about flowers. Mel is full of knowledge and is a master of blooms. She went through many different types of flowers, focusing on which ones were in season and coordinating with us with the colours we had for our bridal party. We left our appointment a bit overwhelmed with all the information we took in but felt confident in Mel and her team to complete our vision.

The team at Lush Florals are a wonderful bunch! They dropped off the flowers on time and were so friendly and helped calm our nerves down. When they knocked on the door, I jumped because I was so anxious. The smell of the flowers definitely helped - they smelt wonderful! My mother-in-law grabbed some of the centrepieces that were left behind and filled it in her sunroom and the next day, it smelt like an indoor garden! So fresh and lovely!

Thank you so much Mel and team!!

Absolutely Incredible!

Mel and her team are truly talented. I knew from my first phone call that I could completely trust Lush with my wedding. I met with various florists in the Niagara area but Mel was the first person who gave me multiple options at different price points based on my vision, and she even gave me more ideas based on what I was thinking originally. I gave her my colour palette and overall idea but fully trusted her with the floral selection and design, and she far exceeding my expectations. I absolutely LOVED my florals, and still receive so many compliments months later. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and truly made my floral dreams come true.

Notl wedding

Melanie and her team at Lush Florals did an incredible job on our wedding florals this summer. We met with Melanie the summer before our wedding and she was able to give us a detailed quote that fit within our budget. We had a general idea of the look that we were going for (lots of eucalyptus and complimentary greenery and some simple white florals), but the girls at Lush Florals took our vision and went above and beyond what we ever could have imagined.

We had silver dollar eucalyptus laid on our long harvest tables with sporadic blooms, but the table greenery and florals were so well done, that you’d never know it wasn’t a lush garland (which, as many know after a little research, can run you a pretty penny).

We were so pleased with the fullness and size of the bouquets, swags, arrangements and table décor that Melanie’s team delivered. Lauren did all of the set-up for our wedding at Kurtz Orchards, on what may have been the hottest day in the history of NOTL, but in spite of the heat, she exceeded our expectations in every way. We received so many compliments from our guests about the florals and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lush Florals to anyone getting married in the Hamilton/Niagara/Toronto region!

Beautiful florals

We met with Mel before our wedding and she was extremely efficient, streamlined and professional! She was happy to help with any of my requests! We weren't sure of exactly what we wanted but we knew we wanted olive branches/leaves incorporated in our day and she beautifully did so! I came into the process with absolutely no knowledge of florals and was so happy with how informative Mel was through the process. On the day of the wedding I was truly blown away with how beautiful everything looked. I had been a little nervous that there wouldn't be full enough flowers because I tried to keep my budgets low but after seeing what she delivered, I couldnt have been more happy! Even though I didn't know exactly what I was asking for and couldn't put it into words, Mel figured it out and delivered! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing florals without any hesitation!!

Wedding June 2018

Melanie did the florals for our wedding at Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake. She did such an incredible job working with gorgeous colours and texture and depth for every single arrangement. We had guests commenting on the flowers all night! I literally gave her the request of 'many colours, done tastefully' and she proved she could work with every colour in every way. Such a stunning visual display for our wedding! Would highly recommend her work and her team again. Thank you!

Melanie was absolutely fabulous and a pleasure to work with! When I first met with Melanie I knew in my head what I wanted but was unable to properly communicate my ideas and she seemed to know exactly what I wanted through all my babbling. I had to make some changes multiple times to my order and Melanie was always so flexible and prompt with her responses.
In the end she and her team created floral arrangements that were exactly what we wanted and suited the feel and look of our big day perfectly! We would happily recommend Lush Florals to anyone!
