Maura Harrison, owner and founder, has loved flowers from a very young age. After growing up in the flower city of Rochester, NY she attended the Floral School in Boston, Massachusetts where she realized that her passion for flowers would evolve into her career. A move to Washington, DC gave her the opportunity to become a Floral Designer and Manager of a successful flower shop in Old Towne Alexandria, Virginia. Returning to Rochester in 2001 Maura opened Sassafras Flowers on Elton Street. This vibrant loft-space became her design studio where she spent years building a loyal clientele. Her dream of owning a floral boutique was realized. Several years later she moved to a newly renovated 5000 square ft building located at 1657 East Avenue in Rochester, the current home to the Sassafras Flowers and Gift boutique.

I highly recommend Sassafras Flowers for all of your flower needs. I used them for my wedding and was left breathless. They catered to every single one of our needs and requests and always made great suggestions. They are not about taking your money, if anything they showed me ways to save whenever possible but still keeping it elegant. They really did a superb job! A+ all the way! THANK YOU!
The staff at Sassafras did an amazing job with our wedding flowers. They were extremely helpful picking out flowers that matched what I was envisioning for our wedding and recommending flowers that were in season. On our wedding day, I was so excited to see our vision come to life and the flowers turned out even better than I could have imagined. They were unbelievably perfect for our venue and style. They also smelled amazing! The staff was also so helpful setting up our flowers. They even took the time on our wedding day to make a last minute change to one of our corsages. Thank you Sassafras for making our wedding flowers perfect!
Maura and Sassfras were amazing! The first day I met with Maura she completely understood the vision I had for the flowers for my wedding. That day I actually had another appointment with another florist after my meeting at Sassafras. Although the second florist was going to be less expensive, he just did not understand my vision like Maura had, and I knew I had to go with Sassafras. Maura and her staff were incredibly helpful putting my ideas together and were quick to respond with any questions I had. When I showed up to the wedding it was even more beautiful than I could have imagined. I can’t say enough good things about the experience, they really went above and beyond what I could have hoped. Thanks Sassafras!
The flowers for our wedding (bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces) were BEAUTIFUL. We had a strict budget and Sassafras helped us choose between several flowers to meet it and still have beautiful arrangements. Great experience. Would absolutely recommend!
Planning a wedding is so overwhelming especially when you are doing it all by yourself. There are so many decisions too make and it’s very stressful so when I met up with the amazing people at Sassafras I was on the verge of a meltdown. They made that go all away instantly! I really had no idea what I wanted just a couple pictures that I had found. They took one look at the pictures and knew exactly what to do. I basically put my flower arrangements and bouquets in their hands and I couldn’t be more pleased. They did an amazing job they were exactly what I had pictured in my head and they were beautiful! Thank you Sassafras for making one less stressful thing in my wedding planning you’re all the best!!!
After meeting with 2 other florists, I am so happy we used Sassafras! They were so thorough in discussing our options and showing me examples– I felt totally comfortable. Our flowers looked so much better than I could have imagined!
I was so pleased with the floral arrangements that Sassafras created for my wedding. They took my ideas to the next level and I was just blown away when I walked into our reception room. I met with the florist 3 times before the wedding date and each time I found everyone there to be helpful. We were working on a tight floral budget and I think we got a lot for what we paid.
Sassafras was so professional when it came to our wedding. They were able to take a look I had found on Pinterest and create my own special wedding flowers. They then were able to create bouquets, table arrangements, and ceremony flowers that all matched my original idea. It was perfect!
The team at Sassafras was a joy to work with, and the flowers and decor at our wedding were absolutely perfect! It was such a special day, and we feel so fortunate to have worked with such a great team at their company. Thank you!
What a beautiful job they did for my wedding! The flowers were fresh, beautiful and just really creatively and “cleanly” arranged. I am really picky when it comes to ….well everything, and they exceeded even my expectations! A joy to work with, and very reasonable for the beautiful flowers and service they provide.
Maura recently did the flowers for my wedding and did am absolutely amazing job! Her professionalism, attention to detail and expertise made all the difference! She has the best ideas and style when it comes to anything flowers and arranging. As most brides, I came in thinking I had all these great ideas of what I wanted. With the help and guidance or Maura she created flower arrangements more beautiful than I could have even described. Maura really went the extra mile to ensure I was happy with everything, which meant a lot as well. She truly has a perfect eye and I would recommend anyone to work with Sassafras!
The flowers were absolutely beautiful- Calla lilies, peonies, hydrangea and orchids- the ballroom looked stunning! I cant thank Maura and her staff enough- beautiful beautiful wedding
Beautiful smelling and looking flowers. I refer them to all my friends who are getting married.
Sassafrass was great! I checked them out because a friend who got married last year got her flowers from them. I’m glad I went there because they were awesome helping me pick out a beautiful bouquet of flowers for my wedding day.
