What is my design style?

Good question! I’m glad you asked!

I would say “my style” is my interpretation of the Bride’s vision and a reflection of her unique style and taste. Many floral designers strive to perfect their “signature style” and there is nothing wrong with that, it’s just not for me. Being limited to my “own” style is like being an actor that plays the same type of role in every film or tv show they do.  Boring!! Haha

I much prefer for someone to look at my portfolio of work and imagine the type of bride that carried each bouquet. I find my inspiration direct from the Bride herself and let the creativity flow from there. It is the Bride’s day, not mine and my job is to guide and suggest flowers and colors based on her preferences and my expertise.

Many brides tell me they don’t know much about flowers and that’s okay! I do! 🙂 I can draw inspiration from the Bride’s pinterest board, her wedding dress, the bridesmaids dresses, the wedding colors as well as her personality when I meet with her.

Sarah and Corey

As they celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary, I wanted to tell you about Sarah and Corey’s wedding that was held on Saturday, September 17, 2011. The ceremony took place at Lexington United Methodist Church and the reception was  held at Palmetto Collegiate Institute.

I LOVED working with Sarah. She has great style and knew exactly what she wanted! She was so organized and provided me with lots of pictures and inspiration to work from! Her vision was “Fun, Casual, Antique, Garden Tea Party“.

For Sarah’s bouquet as well as the bridesmaids and flower girl bouquets,  we used ivory dahlias and roses, pink lisianthus, pink astilbe and veronica accented with seeded eucalyptus and lotus pods. The stems were wrapped in lace and placed in mason jars, provided by the Bride.

For the boutonnieres, we used lavender and rosemary and wrapped them with twine. They smelled wonderful! The corsages were made with ivory roses. For the reception we used the Bride’s collection of assorted vases and jars and filled with the same flowers as the bouquets as well as hydrangea, baby’s breath, queen anne’s lace and miniature pink roses.

We were honored to be a part of their special day! Word of mouth is our best advertising and we appreciate Sarah’s Mom referring another Bride to us! You can read about their wedding here – Kayla and James
