MELISSA AKER

 

I started Blessings & Blossoms in 2011 with the desire to adopt a child from Ethiopia and not having the funds to begin the process. I knew absolutely nothing about flowers! I am an artist and was confident I could use flowers as a medium to create stunning designs! I am in awe of how God has equipped me over the years and how HE has truly taken this business and blessed it beyond measure! As many of you know, God changed our adoption journey in March 2015 to China! God is so faithful and so good! I love to create using texture and color but what I love even more is bringing joy to the couples I am blessed to work with! I have been blessed with gifts and talents that I want to share with all of you!

I deliver and set up weddings all over the state of Minnesota. Traveling is never an issue…I actually quite enjoy it and love working in new spaces!

I truly believe each and every Bride I work with is special! I do not believe in setting a ‘minimum' amount when it comes to weddings. I do not shy away from the word ‘BUDGET!’ In fact, I work very hard at honoring a couples budget creating a look for them that is unique, cost friendly and GORGEOUS!

I am a wife and mom of five beautiful kids who keep me running all over the place when I'm not working on flowers. I love my life and thank God for the gifts He has given me!
