For the love of bouquets

There is something so satisfying in designing a bouquet for a bride and knowing that you have captured her style and essence. Each bouquet I create is as different as the person it is created for!

Emily & Perry, May 13, 2017~ Polo Fields, Ann Arbor 

Lately, I have had many email inquiries from young couples who are beginning the process of wedding planning and want to know my pricing or whether I have “packages” available for flowers. The answer, in brief, is no. ūüôā The reason I keep my business small is so that I can put a bit of myself into each event and design. I really need to meet with a couple, spend some time discussing their plans and learn about their wedding vision and color scheme. It also helps me tremendously if they are able to provide a few visual images of florals that they love and would like to use as inspiration. I formulate a unique vision for that particular couple that includes elements that may have never been used in other weddings. Again, each wedding I design is as unique and special¬†as the couple who are beginning their lives together.

Fond memories of the 2016 Wedding Season

Well, it’s official…our 2017 Wedding Season is booked! We are super excited to work with so many great couples but also sorry to let others know that our calendar is full and we are no longer booking weddings for this year. If you are in need of flowers for a wedding in 2018 or beyond, please send an email or give me a call to talk about reserving your date.

As we ramp up toward the season to come, I have been reminiscing over some of the photos from last year. Wedding work is so, so much work but also, very rewarding. It is always such a pleasure to meet with couples, talk through their ideas and help them create their own unique vision for the big day. Sending a big Thank You to all of the couples who have entrusted us with your floral accessories and decor!

The day has arrived and the styled shoot that I was ecstatic to collaborate on last September has been picked up by, and published on the wedding blog, Borrowed & Blue! It was such a pleasure to work with all of the other super talented wedding professionals on this. Many thanks to Shelbi Britton Events, Lia Giannotti Photography, Sparky Noodle Bakery, The White Dress, EB Design Studio (Andi Harvey), Hair by Simona and Bridal Beauty Detroit, LLC.

Oh, how we love weddings…

Each bouquet we design is as unique as the bride who carries it!

I love finishing a bouquet with a special family item such as a handkerchief from Grandma.

It’s such a satisfying process to go from an initial consultation with a couple, getting a feel for their style, color scheme, etc. to ordering the freshest seasonal¬†product and then bringing¬†it all together with the creation of finished¬†florals.

Maureen selected succulents and Juliet garden roses for her bouquet in a rustic, barn setting.

Another great perk to designing wedding florals~ visiting so many unique and beautiful venues! Each location dictates a different tone for the ceremony and reception decor.

Maureen and Alek were married May 21st at a rustic setting in Howell, MI.

Stacy and Michael were married May 20th at The Gandy Dancer, Ann Arbor, MI.

Preeta and Bradley were married May 21st and held their reception on the outdoor patio at The Gandy Dancer.
