I have always loved arranging flowers for our home and creating interesting tables for our friends and family to look at when we eat and drink together. A few years ago a friend asked us to provide flowers for her wedding at our farm in Stafford. I eagerly agreed and it was that moment that I was lucky enough to turn my passion for flowers into an event floral business.
We offer custom designs that range from a traditional look to the unique and unexpected. I personally meet with each couple to gather ideas on what the perfect look and feel would be for them. Then we work together to bring this to life. It could be a casual boho wedding with an arching hand-tied bouquet or a more formal theme with greenery and all white flowers. Often times we incorporate reclaimed elements for venue decor and vessels for arrangements. We have a number of interesting elements that that are available to rent for your event.
We strive to turn your dream into reality but are also sensitive to budgets. Sometimes a substitution of a few flowers for other varieties will keep costs down but give you the same designer look of a high end element that you may love. As event floral designers we most often provide all or most of the flowers for an event. This includes bridal party flowers, arches and other reception flowers. Some brides might provide certain elements like the centerpieces which is fine. We are not set up to make just one bridal bouquet or to provide an a la carte floral service.
Every time we unpack flowers I take it all in. I love the flowers...their scent and all of the colors and textures. I look at them all in their buckets and think how lucky I am to be able to create with them. I remember bringing an inspiration photo to a florist many years ago when I got married. It was a picture of my grandmother (c. 1918) with a massive bouquet with beautiful trailing ribbons and rosebuds tied to some of the trailing ribbons. I will never forget the feeling I had when I saw my own bridal bouquet (by another designer) for the first time. It was magnificent. My heart was racing and I could not have felt more special and beautiful. This is the moment that I work to create for others with our flowers.
