floral Design services

Every wedding or event is as unique as you are and from the moment you contact me, I will listen closely so your vision will become a reality.

Let’s be creative together to design floral arrangements that reflect your personality, style, and vibe. Even if you don’t know the names of all the flowers you like, or options to consider given your budget, I will work with you to figure it all out and will make recommendations for bringing your vision to life.

You can count on me to create arrangements that are lush with the freshest seasonal flowers and greenery, sometimes whimsical and fun, with exciting floral surprises and interesting color combinations. Every detail, from the smallest boutonniere to the largest alter arrangement will be a piece of floral art that will ‘wow’ you and your guests.

Planning Your Wedding Flowers

When you plan your overall wedding look, keep in mind that there are four key factors that will impact my  recommendations for your flowers and floral designs:

1.  Your color palette is the primary factor for considering floral options. The color of dresses, linens, tableware and room décor influence the colors of the flowers proposed and will unify the overall look of the wedding or event.

2.  The location and venue for the wedding ceremony, reception, event or party will also influence recommendations for best type of vases and floral containers to match the décor, as well as the size and color of arrangements.

3. The season of the wedding or event also impacts recommendations for flowers and greenery that will be readily available, affordable, and fresh.

 4.  Finally, your budget will play a big part in determining the recommendations for flowers and the size of arrangements. I am happy to offer recommendations and options to keep within your floral budget, as well as cost saving options whenever possible.
