Gloria came from a family where design and creativity were used daily.  She began planning parties for her family, and that love of planning and design grew into a career as an interior designer.  She joined the Stylish Stems team over 6 years ago and quickly became one of their top designers.

Marie Wood

LEAD DESIGNER

Marie has always had a connection with flowers.  One of her fondest memories as a child was making flower crowns out of wildflowers with her sisters.

 

Marie began designing for weddings in 2017 and immediately fell in love with flowers, weddings, and the entire art of floral design. She has designed for over 100 weddings, at many of Atlanta's most premier venues. She works with a wide range of styles and especially enjoys designing organically styled bouquets and large beautiful installations.

 

When she is not working on weddings, you will probably find her studying astrology, going on hikes with her dog, or watching videos of cute otters.

Marcy Bope

DESIGNER / EVENT LEAD

My love for wedding flowers began in my twenties, when I attended the Career Floral Design Institute, in Bellevue, Washington.  I was young and my friends were in the process of getting married. I got my business license and enjoyed designing for them.

 

I have worked in many floral shops in Washington, Alaska, and Georgia, but weddings “take the cake.”  Bouquets are my favorite, as well as arches and hanging installations.  There’s nothing like transforming a space into the bride’s dream.  It’s so sweet when she slips into the room in between hair and makeup because she just can’t wait to see what we created.  I love designing and leading weddings with the uber-talented team at Stylish Stems.

 

Outside of work, I can’t seem to get enough time with my family. My husband and I have two teenage boys and we love to ride bikes, hike, cook, play games and listen to music together."

Elisa Antrom

DESIGNER / EVENT LEAD

Elisa has been with the Stylish Stems team since 2018.  She quickly displayed a natural design talent, and an eye for balance.  She has now collaborated on over 75 weddings and has led multiple onsite execution teams for our busy 2018 Fall wedding season.  Elisa also works in our operations department, managing and sourcing dry goods as well as fresh floral products each week.

"Hey y’all! My name is Elisa Antrom and I am from Peachtree Corners, Georgia. My fondest memories as a child involved planting and picking flowers with my mom, and what girl hasn’t planned her wedding 15 different times, so combining the two made my fantasies come to life. When I’m not at Stylish Stems I'm in some aesthetic worthy coffee shop. I am beyond excited to help you make all your dreams come true!"

"I am a college student who fell in love with flowers and weddings at first sight. My favorite types of designs are wild, organically styled arrangements. 

 

At Stylish Stems, I'm often working alongside our lead designers creating beautiful bridesmaid's bouquets, which I love! My favorite design element at our weddings is the candlelight! I feel like when the candles are lit the florals and magic are just illuminated to a whole other level - the entire vision has then come to life!"

Estefanie

DESIGNER / EVENT LEAD / OPERATIONS

Michelle Rutledge

DESIGNER/ Event Lead

Michelle joined Stylish Stems in April of 2019.  She also serves as the Athletic Director at The King’s Academy.  Her organizational skills and creative talents complement each other well in an industry that requires just the right balance of both to bring to life a bride’s vision on her big day.  

 

“The best part of working at Stylish Stems is getting to work with my daughters Mallory Woodward, Lead Designer and Candace Headley, Event Lead and Operations.  We have fun creating and executing Mallory’s extraordinary designs and seeing them all come together the day of the wedding.”   There is nothing more satisfying than loving what you do and doing it with those you love!   

 

Michelle is married to Mark and is the proud mom of three daughters Candace, Mallory and Natalie and their husbands.  In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her grandson, Preston, volunteering at church, traveling, yoga, hiking, and cheering on The Ohio State Buckeyes.

Connie joined the Stylish Stems in 2018 after a lifetime of creativity and appreciation for the unique. Her favorite part of weddings is seeing all the different beautiful pieces come together to create a bride and groom’s special day.

 

Her common sense and can-do attitude make her the perfect fit to help make sure that everything she puts her hands on gets done before the big day. In her spare time, she manages a house full of kids (both two-legged and four) with her husband in Marietta. If she’s not keeping that crew under control, you can find her with a good book and her favorite pooch Sassy sunning on her back porch.
