I refer to it as the "heart thumb" moment—a profound instant of understanding, joy, appreciation, and love. It's that feeling when your heart skips a beat, lingers in your throat, or you find yourself holding back tears of sheer joy. While it might sound a bit sentimental, I adore working on weddings because the emotional reward is immeasurable. Witnessing my clients marvel at their floral arrangements is a gratifying experience, making every prick from thorns and encounter with thistles worthwhile.
Weddings serve as unique occasions that unite families and friends across distances and years. Often, it's the one time a reunion photograph is taken, becoming a cherished addition to everyone's family album. Each wedding feels like a transcendent journey—through all the planning, hard work, and financial investments, culminating in a pivotal moment that illuminates the path to a shared future. It signifies the creation of a family, a life built on love. Nothing brings me greater joy than delivering flowers that amplify the love and goodwill shared among a family celebrating the romance of a wedding. Consequently, my team and I are at your service throughout the entire process. My primary goal is to ensure you relish the planning stages and the arrival of your wedding florals, which will beautifully frame your most treasured moments.
Considering it a great privilege, I collaborate with an exceptional team who shares the same passion and commitment to making your wedding experience truly unforgettable.

The best way to begin this process is to complete our simple inquiry form. This gives us some basic factors to consider and prepare for our first consultation. We can then verify our schedule is open for your event and temporarily hold your date until we meet.
Once we have the basics, we'll send you an invitation to schedule a zoom meeting that is convenient for you. In this call we can take a look at any inspirational images or elements you'd like to include in your wedding. Pinterest or dream boards are a fabulous way to help us see your vision. We can talk about your budget, favorite colors, flowers, wedding party members, and any other ideas or concerns you might have.
If I have done my job correctly and captured your ideas and wishes, you will receive a proposal you'll love. It is very important to me that you feel great about the elements we're discussing, and I am completely willing to meet or chat to and make sure I get it just right for you.
Once the proposal is accepted, you can book your date by signing the contract and paying your $500 non-refundable deposit. Your date is then locked, my calendar fills up with all of the pre-production dates I need to make sure I meet all of the requirements of your wedding event!
In the meantime, I will begin creating a style sheet of visuals and descriptions of the ideas we've discussed. This will make sure you can see the direction I will be taking with the flowers. This is a collaborative process and I am happy to discuss any other ideas you might have before we get to a final floral plan. You can make up to 2 design changes to the signed proposal and we can work through items as your wedding plan evolves. Your color palette and even overall style and theme can change up until 2 months prior and I'm happy to talk through any ideas you have along the way. I like to do at least one on-site meeting before finalizing our plan to make sure we all agree on the elements to be included in the wedding.
This will be issued 45 days prior to your event and due 30 days before the event date.
At this point the real magic begins. Our excitement and anticipation of creating the wedding of your dreams finally goes into action and we cannot wait to show you how much we love this part!
