Hello! This is Julie.
First of all, let me say congratulations on your engagement! No matter where you are in your wedding planning process, let me tell you that I’m (almost) as happy for you as you are. I love weddings. I’ve been happily married to a wonderful man for 30 years. We work together at Blossom Artistry and we love helping couples get started on a path that has been so good to us.
We’ve put together this page to help you find the perfect florist for all the parties leading up to your wedding, and the wedding itself. Of course, we would love to be that florist. On occasion, it happens that brides would be better served by a different florist, and most of all, we want you to be sure you’ve made the best decision for your event.
It’s pretty straightforward, really.
Your job is to understand what role flowers will play in your event. Do you want your flowers to be the second-most beautiful thing in the room, or to add the finishing touch to a celebration?
As you interview florists, listen for designers who are more interested in your vision than in their packages; who offer their expertise in support of your vision, while understanding your budget and how everything else in your wedding comes together.
We’ve helped brides create floral fantasies with arrangements in the hall, in the garden, on the tables, and everywhere; we’ve designed in-season flowers for an early spring wedding where the entire congregation was invited to a BBQ dinner.
How We Work
We’ve worked with lots of families at Blossom Artistry Weddings, helping them enhance their event with the right flowers, without having to pawn the family silver, elope, or never speak to their mother again.
We know you’re going to like planning your event flowers.
Afloat on possibility
Floral design starts with great clouds of possibilities, limited slightly by the time of year: some flowers are more available than others. We start putting some details together: how many people at the reception, how many attendants, what does the venue need, what is the budget?
Your limits actually help us get more creative. More flowers lower budget? In season, sometimes locally grown. Orchids because every bride in your family since great-great Aunt Vespasia carried Phalaenopsis? How many bridesmaids did you say? It can be done….
If your plans have developed as far as seating charts and table plans, look at the flower planner sheet below before you come. If you’re not there yet, come anyway. Sometimes its easier to work earlier in the process, when there is plenty of room to adjust.
If you have been planning in Pinterest, please share your account with us (just give us the URL for the account). It’s fun to see what you’ve been pinning. We cannot duplicate anyone else’s flowers, of course, but we’ll get a great idea of your style from your wedding board.
Call to make an appointment, or fill out the contact form and we’ll call you.
It’s that easy.
I’m so excited!
