Here are the latest creations that we have made for our August Brides. I really enjoy creating wedding flowers and getting to know the people who are getting married.
One of the more interesting requests was for a necklace made of herbs. I made a couple of prototypes and was really happy with the results. I put rosemary and lavender in the final pieces and they smelled amazing.
We only take on one wedding a day so that I can really focus on the event and the couple and create something that they will truly love.

I really enjoy that moment when the bride sees her bouquet. Her eyes light up and gets excited.
One of the best compliments that I have ever received came from a bride recently. She seemed to be a free spirit to me and I wanted to create something unique that she would love. I took some artistic license and added some flowing grasses and made her bouquet cascade. When I handed her the final product she said that it didn’t look like what she thought it would. I had a moment of panic, the colors are on target, the flowers are the same as what we discussed. The design brief was for a rustic feel using lots of greens and grasses. Did I go too far? I added roses to soften everything, did she really want a traditional bouquet after all? Oh my. I asked her to clarify what she meant and she said that it didn’t look like what she expected that it looked amazing and was the most beautiful thing she had seen and that she never imagined that it would look like this and that she would love it so much. Then she said that she wasn’t really sure what she wanted, but that the bouquet I made was perfect.
That made me happiest florist in the world.
