Step into the studio and watch Mary Ellen design a bridal bouquet. 


Who we are:

Mary Ellen & Matt LaFreniere

Mary Ellen grew up on a flower farm and made her first bouquet  at the age of 4. Matt didn't grow up on a flower farm and made his first bouquet at the age of 31.  The couple launched Steelcut Flower Co. in Baltimore in 2016 and have grown their team to include stylists and floral-lovers from many backgrounds. 

Mary Ellen is the heart of the business and the person you'll most likely meet at a consultation, but for weddings and set-ups you can expect to see many different faces.


What we do:

Steal beauty. Give it back.

We search high and low for top quality blooms, sourcing globally, locally, and even from overgrown alleys or other forageable areas in Baltimore city.  

We toil, we deliberate, we create.



What we love:

Garden roses and Velvet. Patina on Copper. Late afternoon Light. 

We get goosebumps when the right flowers are in the right place at the right time. We rely on you, our client, to lead us to the time and place. We'll supply the flowers.



What our Clients say:

Mary Ellen...OMG...the flowers were SO AMAZING I don’t even know where to start!!! Thank you so much for the absolutely stunning bouquets and church displays. They were beyond perfect, everybody loved them. I was sort of ‘whatever’ about getting flowers while we were wedding planning. And then I saw them the day of and immediately became obsessed with flowers! They ended up being one of my favorite parts of the day.
You all really know your craft and designed spectacular floral arrangements that I didn’t even know I wanted.
— Amanda & Ross (2016 bride & groom)
All I can say is, thank goodness for Mary Ellen and Matt! Mary Ellen and Matt were able to work so efficiently and creatively that they literally saved “my big day”. Mary Ellen just has that *eye* and that *touch* that when combined, can make any table arrangement/centerpiece not only work, but impress
— Kelly, (bride)
You knocked it out of the park yet again this weekend! The flowers were absolutely beautiful and you were a joy to work with. Thanks for making us look good at the past 3 fall weddings! Can’t wait to work together more in the future!
— Lindsey (planner)
Mary Ellen did my wedding on unusually short notice. She takes such pride in her work and her personal touch was noticed by everyone! No one would have known that she had so little time to work with... Amazing!
— Stephen, (groom)
Love Mary Ellen and her creative, organic designs! I loved my wedding flowers and wouldn’t have gone with anyone else. They were perfect
