Will has grown up in his families hometown florist for the past 30+ years; however, he pursued other career opportunities before returning full-time in 2017.  When it comes to florals, Will likes big and showy arrangements filled with either all white and greenery or bight and colorful.

Pennsylvania native Rebecca moved to Rockingham in 2016 to pursue a teaching career.

What began as a small favor here and there, is now Rebecca's part time job. Rebecca serves as our lead wedding planner. When not teaching full time, she can be found working with our couples to plan their dream wedding.

Wow... it's hard to put into words how great our experience was with Hillside Florist. Will and Becky knocked it out of the park. We purchased the floral and day-of coordination package with them. It was definitely worth every penny. They really took the time to collaborate with us in order to make our wedding dreams come true. Hillside worked around the clock for months, traveling to meet our vendors in the Charlotte and Southern Pines area, in order to make our wedding day perfect. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. If that is true, Brett and I will have good luck for the rest of our lives! It poured rain on our big day, but that didn't stop Hillside. Will and Becky were able to move everything under the covered porch effortlessly. It was absolutely break-taking. Seeing the florals and all the hard work Hillside put into our wedding day is definitely a memory we will never forget. If you're looking for an all-in-one package, we highly recommend Hillside!

"Hillside Florist is absolutely by far the best florist there is! Will and his team created a vision of heaven this past weekend for my daughter's wedding! He is extremely easy to work with and makes any mother of the bride worries go away! Will's gift of vision, beauty, creativity, and originality makes dreams become a reality! I wish there were more stars in a rating because giving Hillside 5 stars just isn't enough. Thank you Hillside for becoming a part of our memories and hearts that will last us for generations to come!"

Hillside is  very professional and is very detailed oriented. From our first pre wedding video call, we got an amazing warm welcome. The team is very friendly and easy to have a conversation with. They took the time to fully understand the type of coordinators we were exactly looking for on our big day. We had a 3 day wedding function and in our culture, we have many moving pieces which sometimes can be stressful. Hillside, no matter what the situation was, remained professional, calm and helped execute every detail on a timely manner. Our wedding was supposed to be outside, but last minute we had to execute our Plan B due to the weather. Rebecca personally came early that morning to help turn around the layout for the inside. We had around 220 guests attending our wedding and reception. Will, Rebecca & Stacy treated all our guests with a huge smile and respect. 

During the reception Will and Stacy had constantly kept in touch with all of our vendors to make sure everything was properly being delivered on time. The hospitality service Will provided during the reception was the best. He kept making sure our drinks were refilled and bought up food during the program without any interruptions. 

Thank you Will, Rebecca, and Stacy for helping our dream wedding come true. We absolutely loved working with you guys. I will definitely recommend you guys to everyone. If anyone is in need of coordinators, they need to know you are the best to work with! Throughout the process you were kind and took the time to understand our vision for the weekend. The way you have respected and embraced our culture means a lot to us. 


Will and the Hillside Florist team were ABSOLUTELY incredible. I had really no idea what I wanted for flowers except for a color scheme and Hillside blew it out of the water. They were extremely attentive and flexible when it came to adjusting a few things as we got closer to our big day. We felt incredibly blessed to have found Will and his team, and I would choose them over and over again! Thank you all so much for your incredible work and talent!!


Getting Hillside to do my florals and day of coordination was the best decision I could have made. Rebecca a Will listened to everything I asked for and went above and beyond to make my wedding dreams come true. Everyone said they had never seen more beautiful arrangements. It looked even better than my pinterest boards. Book them!



Hillside's wedding journey dates back to the early 1950's; however, we updated our brand in 2017 when son of the current owner  took over the  wedding side of the business. With a passion for true excellence, Will found a huge gap within the local wedding industry. No one was focusing on how design brings a whole wedding to life. Every breathtaking event you'll ever find printed in a wedding magazine, revolves around stunning florals.  Also, Will found a lack of creativity/originality at weddings. To change this, Will made it a goal for Hillside to transform the wedding industry so that Bride's could create their own wedding vision. 

Under Will's leadership,  Hillside has started booking weddings all over North Carolina and parts of South Carolina. It is rewarding to look back and see how far we have come over the years, but it is even more exciting to look towards the future as we dream up new possibilities. The best is yet to come. We truly believe that the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

This is is our story. We look forward to using our story to create an experience that tells your story.
