Elise has spent two years on the Stems team and has executed the design and installation of some of our favorite weddings. An expert gardener, Elise grows some of the flowers we use in her yard and is constantly coming up with new & wonderful varieties of things for us to use.

After graduating from the College of Charleston with a degree in Fine Arts, and a focus in oil painting, Elise worked in a number of different fields before finding a home at Stems.  Her two passions now inspire each other- seeing the amazing varieties of flowers and greenery used at Stems always drives her to see what can be grown in her garden to use for future events. Getting to make a bouquet for a bride on her wedding day, including flowers grown in her own garden, is incredibly special to her.

When she isn’t playing in the dirt, or with flowers- Elise enjoys painting, traveling, and spending time with her husband Chris, and their dog Bear.
