Knoxville Florist: Melissa Timm Floral Designs

View More Photos

I had the pleasure of visiting the studio of Knoxville florist, Melissa Timm Floral Designs, and I am so excited to present a little sneak peek of what I found.

Melissa Timm has been a florist in Knoxville, Tn for over 20 years, and now she has her own studio in which to warmly welcome her brides.

Melissa Timm Floral Design Studio offers brides endless amounts of ideas to help inspire them for their Knoxville wedding.

Right as you walk into “Melissa’s Garden,” as I like to call it, your creative senses go wild with ideas! Every  nook and cranny is filled with whimsical accents such as bird’s nests, moss, vintage furniture, and of course, flowers.

Take a moment to peer into the window of Melissa’s studio through these lovely photos provided by Megan Flanagan of Break the Mold Photo while learning more about Melissa as a Knoxville floral designer.

About Melissa Timm

Melissa Timm was a Psychology major when she accidentally discovered a flower design book. She said it was this book that changed her life!

Melissa changed her major to Business Management, but she still did not heavily pursue this new found passion for floral design. Instead, she told herself to think practically, earned a paralegal degree, and got a desk job.

She said sitting still is impossible for her creative mind, so to keep sane, she made up her mind to stop thinking practically and pursue her dream!

20 years later, Melissa is still driven by her passion to create unique designs and help brides create their ideal wedding.

Melissa says the greatest joy about being a floral designer for weddings is being apart of a bride’s wedding planning experience from the beginning to the end. She not only helps the bride make decisions about their flowers, but she herself is on location the day of  the wedding preparing all the previously discussed details.

Personal Recommendation

“I have worked with Melissa on location multiple times, and when the stress level is high and the late hours creep in, Melissa is still smiling. She was right when she said she can’t sit still! She is one of the hardest working, most diligent people I know in the wedding industry, and I recommend her to any bride that wants not only beautiful flowers, but a pleasant, fun, and memorable experience. She is truly a joy to work with!”

Melissa offers many unique items for brides to rent from her store that you may not find in just any Knoxville flower shop. My all time favorite is the vintage bike!

She also offers shepherd hooks, lanterns, greenery, vintage decor, and other natural accents perfect for any wedding.

Every florist in Knoxville has a distinct style to their floral designs. Melissa’s has been described as whimsical, romantic, and never cookie-cutter.

Flowers are not the only things you will find in Melissa’s studio! Melissa sells fun gift items that are great for bridesmaids or any occasion. These fun and flirty garters are only a sample of her extra items for sale.
