WEDDINGS

 

Sarah will guide you through the process of customizing your wedding floral design from initial conceptualization to final execution. This begins with a complimentary consultation to establish your style, allowing the floral details and overall design landscape to emerge. Sarah then takes your dreams and desires, however large or small, and creates something beautifully suited and unique to you. She attends the day of the event to ensure each flower stem is exactly where it should be and each arrangement is perfectly placed. Wedding flowers generally make up 12-15% of a wedding budget, though they depend on the services provided. Frequent services Sarah offers:

  • ceremony and reception floral installation- from grand floral arches to suspended mossy branches dripping with foraged greens to lush garlands of vines and wildflowers down the aisle... if you can dream it, she can do it!
  • bridal party flowers including bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages
  • centerpieces- from numerous overgrown arrangements lined down one giant table to sweet bud vases filled with only a few blooms of the highest quality to everything in between 
  • hair flowers including full and half flower crowns and floral hair clips, for just the bride or the entire wedding party
  • cake flowers and other detail flowers such as escort card displays, sign in table and bar arrangements, and napkin or plate details

Please contact Sarah and schedule a custom consultation for your wedding!
