It never fails to amaze me how I look forward to each wedding for what feels like SO long (and often, that's 9-16 months before the wedding, so it IS a long time!) and then wham, that wedding has come and gone. Somehow I'm already more than halfway through my 2018 wedding season, and that is blowing my mind!
With that comes an update on my 2019 wedding season availability! My wedding availability has a tendency to book up really far in advance, and 2019 is no different. I was astonished to realize this weekend that I only have about 4 remaining wedding dates for the summer 2019 months! (I do have a lot of flexibility still in October through December of 2019).
So here's the deal: if you want to work with me for your wedding flowers, reach out - like, now. If I'm available, I want to hear as much as possible about your wedding plans and get excited along with you! If I'm not available, I will happily refer you to my network of amazing colleagues whose work I admire!
Here's what I'm looking for and hoping to work on in 2019:
-Interesting colour palettes with depth, vibrancy, and cheerfulness.
-Ceremony spaces dripping with flowers to create a one-of-a-kind ambiance.
-Spotlight moments throughout your reception, whether that be an incredible guest book table or a sweetheart table that makes an enormous statement.
-Unique combinations! I'm feeling a bit of a tropical vibe lately and would love to explore that with someone cool.
-A rich, amazing FALL wedding (hellllooo October couples! It's the perfect time for this!). A lot of fall weddings are Crayola coloured...I'd love to do something that takes fall in a more luscious, dramatic direction.
-Coloured table linens. Ha! This might sound a bit weird because it's not a floral wish at all, but I LOVE it when a couple chooses the perfect table linen. Different venues and different styles lend themselves well to different linens - I'm dreaming of rich greens, velvety textures, soft corals...something different than what everyone else is doing. Your table linens take up SO much visual real estate in a room and are worth investing in if you want to make a decor statement!
-Generally, I really love working with couples who are creative and stylish, but who are also comfortable putting their trust in me to pull off their vision and make it even more than what they imagined.
Please note that during my busiest season (June through September), I accept only full weddings with a minimum $2000 investment. "Full" weddings means that I don't take orders that are only for bridal party flowers, but prefer to design for weddings where I can work on ceremony and/or reception decor as well. This is for several reasons:
1) as a studio florist, I have to place bulk flower orders and it doesn't usually make financial sense for me to have to place a large bulk order only to use some of those stems and not have a retail location where I can sell off the rest of the flowers, and
2) I really love being able to design a complete space to really make wedding day a totally amazing experience. Weddings where I get to play a larger role make me really excited and I leave feeling so fulfilled!
