Thank you Flower Delivery Reviews for adding us to a list of Best floral designers in the USA. What an honor. I am most excited because I’m on the list with my personal favorite floral designer Nisie Enchanted.
Honest truth, this is one of my all time favorite weddings. Why you ask? First and foremost, I just love a venue that ‘s unique and modern. The Glass House is a private estate owned by a wonderful gentleman who allows a few event per year. He lives there so it’s really someone’s house and to open it up to guests is quite an honor. But beyond that, I’m a sucker for white and green weddings. Done often but never boring, it’s one of the most timeless palettes to me.
When you add in acrylic chairs from Theoni Collection which are trend right. along with that wood king’s table, I was sold. I haven’t even mentioned the fabulous linen from La Tavola that’s boldly modern yet sophisticated. Metallic thread in silver/gold is the type of pattern that I wish more planners and couples would choose.
As for flowers —- I can’t deny Courtney of A Savvy Event (planner extraordinaire) when she requests a great idea. She told me that she wanted a runner of flowers for two of the long tables. I felt empowered to do something that wasn’t just the normal green garland filled with white flowers. We’ve seen often. And I like them. Very much in fact. Nothing wrong with that rustic look but how to make something sophisticated and grand well, I decided to make the garland a runner because I wanted the flowers to drape over the table in such a way that it would be impactful.
Finally, I talk about this a lot. Vendors and floral designer most especially, need the trust and faith of their clients. I do my best work when a client say that they trust my eye and skills. It’s the main thing that we all need as creatives to make something truly remarkable. I talk about this all the time because when I feel a client truly loves what we produce, we make something even better. I get the latitude to choose something remarkable, select flowers that I feel they would like without having to consult a list of “don’t pick these flowers list”(not that one should just pick any random flower). Because Lauren, the bride , was so trusting, I felt like I could deliver and that’s all one wants to do and more.
Another aspect of the vendor-client relationship is the ease for which this very complicated wedding was handled. Along side trust(which is key), another key part of the planning process is knowing your vision, standing behind it, and be willing to just let it unfold. I worked mostly with Courtney on the proposal, the inspiration and the actual logistics. Again, I felt the client gave us a good foundation with plenty of visuals and we didn’t need to rehash over and over. The design board from start to finish was complete and set( Courtney gets the kudos for this). The bride and groom never changed their event decor, color palette or style words which made the design very focused and to be honest, straightforward in terms of planning what needed to be procured. By also allowing the logistics and details to be between the planner and floral designer, the couple could focus on their guest, attire, and all those personal details that made it ultimately so delightful.
Thank you Tim Ku, editor at Harper Bazaar for the feature. I’m forever grateful.
