Private Business & Wedding Floral Design Workshop Recap

Private Business & Wedding Floral Design Workshop Recap

I am SO excited to share a recap of a Private Business and Floral Design workshop I hosted in February! I welcomed the ladies behind the Corner House B&B, Jenny and Kelley, into our home and studio for an entire day full of learning and we had an amazing time together! The Corner House B&B is in Rockport, Indiana, so it was such an honor to welcome these ladies who flew in from a different state for the workshop, and it was so fun being able to devote the entire day to specifically diving into their business!

We started off the day with coffee/tea and breakfast and then dove straight into the content- where I taught about marketing, the booking process, creating design proposals, and more! We talked about how to market your new business without going into debt, how to book brides in a simple and straightforward way that doesn’t involve dozens of emails, time spent tweaking proposals and research, and how to create proposals that convert and showcase the creative vision of both you and your client! We made an action plan for the Corner House and discussed their overarching goals and broke it up into manageable steps. Specifically, we focused on streamlining and ways to invigorate their marketing efforts and online presence!

Ginny & Andrew- Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia

Ginny & Andrew- Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia

Ginny and Andrew had an absolutely beautiful wedding at the Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia, which is easily one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Hampton Roads! Ginny and Andrew envisioned classic, romantic floral designs, with lush bouquets and centerpieces filled with lots of beautiful blush, champagne and ivory blooms! For the flowers, we used eucalyptus with ranunculus, garden roses, spray roses and cafe au lait dahlias in the bouquets and centerpieces- I love how the bouquets and blush hand-dyed silk ribbon streamers paired effortlessly with the beautiful mauve-inspired bridesmaid dresses- definitely a favorite of 2017! The Hermitage Museum had the most beautiful string lighting set up outside, and Ginny, Andrew and all their guests danced away under the stars- it was magical! Their wedding day was photographed by Compo Photography who did such a wonderful job! Check out the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Ginny and Andrew's wedding day to life- and enjoy! :)

Kayla & Andrew's Chesapeake, Virginia Wedding!

Kayla & Andrew's Chesapeake, Virginia Wedding!

Kayla and Andrew were married on a beautiful October day last fall in Chesapeake, Virginia, and had the most lovely, whimsical wedding! Their color palette of mauve, white and blush was gorgeous, and one of my favorites of the year- it's so fun to work with more unique color palettes. Kayla wanted lots of textural blooms, like dahlias, ranunculus and scabiosa paired with romantic garden roses and eucalyptus greenery for the florals, and I adore the way they all looked at her wedding! :) Another fun part for me was making those adorable succulent boutonnieres- LOVE!! I loved working with these two sweethearts; they had such a lovely and heartfelt day. Enjoy these beautiful photos from Erin Daniel Photography, and be sure to show some love to the entire vendor team listed below!
