How did you get into wedding florals?

From our first year in business, we have been designing wedding floral d├ęcor. When we opened our shop, one of our goals was to work with brides and create their visions for their weddings and receptions. Over the past 28 years, we have seen many changes in the trends of our brides. With the addition of pinterest, blogs and the internet, our brides have access to many ideas and visuals which help her to form her vision and for us to create the floral designs that she loves.

What is your favorite part about being a florist?
There are so many aspects of this business that I love, that it is difficult to single out one. 
However, I believe seeing the faces of brides when they see their bouquet, reception or 
ceremony site completely decorated, is one of my favorites. When seeing their reaction, 
and I know that my staff and I have created their vision is one of the most rewarding 
parts of being a florist. There are many others – meeting brides and clients for the first 
time, working with them and putting their vision together. But, in the end, the final 
product and reaction are what I truly love.

What is your favorite flower and why?
Interesting question, as I have so many flowers that I love. But, if I have to narrow it 
down, I would say a peony. To watch a small bud unfold into fluffy, layered petals is 
truly amazing. And, the fragrance is delicious – and such a wide range of colors. 

What are your favorite trends when it comes to wedding flowers?
With the introduction of Pinterest, it is amazing to see all of the wedding trends. I love 
the Gatsby, romantic look with the candle light glow. Creating that vision is one of my 
favorites. But, I love the challenge of a modern, chic wedding with clean design lines as 
well. I would say that creating a design that I have not created before is challenging and 
gets my creative juices flowing. Each trend embodies the bride and her special day --- 
that is what we at Rose of Sharon live for.
