DESIGNED FOR YOU
Luxury is a word that carries a different meaning for different people. At RISE, luxury isn't based on status or price point, rather it’s about unparalleled service with fine attention to detail. Luxury means providing you with personalized support, anticipating your needs, and offering a range of amenities and solutions that cater to your preferences. It’s not about locking you into our “preferred” florist –instead, it’s about recommending you multiple florists who, through experience, we know will bring your vision to life. Our clients' needs and desires are our driving force, and meeting them with respect, intention, and professionalism always comes first.
We believe everyone deserves to experience 5-star luxury comparable to that of a 5-star hotel, regardless of the size or scope of their event. Whether you're planning a brand activation or corporate retreat, a wedding or a bridal shower, our team is here to help you create unforgettable experiences your guests will remember for years to come.
RISE invites you to experience our definition of luxury by indulging in our 5-star client management services, leaving you feeling like a guest at your own event.
to strive for the highest quality and exceed expectations in everything we do.

Lead Event Coordinator
“Our PR agency used RISE Event Planning for a Christmas themed influencer event, and I was blown away by the decor and special touches Julia and the team brought to the venue! It went from a basic downtown restaurant into a Christmas wonderland within an hour. Both our client and event attendees all commented on how well executed the event was.”
