Wedding coordinators go through it all! It was (and still is) a crazy job but it’s taught me the most!Read More
When I first started getting interested in working with flowers, I was overwhelmed by how much I did not know. I really had no idea where to begin. I would show up at the wholesale warehouse and just buy things so I could look at their names on the receipts. I wanted to learn more but didn't really know where to start. For my own wedding, I wanted to take a DIY approach just so I could learn more. Since then, I've spent endless hours googling and reading and practicing. There are a lot of good resources out there for novices to try things out. As a person who has taught myself a lot from the internet (for better and for worse) I want to help put more knowledge out there so that I might be able to help someone too someday, so this is my attempt at that! I am going to try to keep this series up as best I can, but here is a breakdown of my most recent Bouquet. (Original Photo by Anna Markley Photography)
Also, if you are interested my favorite floral resource as I started out was this book
Earlier this July I had to honor of creating florals for Meg and Evan's Wedding at Worthington Hills Country Club and on top of that Coordinating their ceremony! It was a beautiful day and a beautiful location! Meg and Evan are a couple that were just full of joy, which makes the job all the sweeter. When I met with Meg, she had a vision of modern romantic florals with a traditional touch. The florals were a wide range of pink hues complimented by gold accents. I loved the gold mercury glass vessels that held the table decor and the beautiful dusty pink bridesmaids gowns were complimented so well by the bouquets. One of my favorite parts about working on these arrangements was THE SMELL, so luscious! Working with several types of roses and eucalyptus is never a bad thing!
To top it all off, there was just an amazing list of vendors that I was honored to work alongside!
