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!

Marisa & Kevin- Ashton Creek Vineyard, Richmond Wedding

Marisa & Kevin- Ashton Creek Vineyard, Richmond Wedding

Marisa and Kevin had an absolutely beautiful October wedding day at Ashton Creek Vineyard, near Richmond, Virginia! Ashton Creek is one of my absolute favorite winery wedding venues in the Richmond area- in the fall, the outdoor space was full of rows of romantic vines, which made for the most romantic ceremony backdrop and picture spots! Marisa and Kevin envisioned a romantic, woodland wonderland, with shades of burgundy, dusty rose and white, paired with woodsy greenery, including a variety of ferns, moss, and airy greens- I LOVED all their ideas! To bring their vision to life, we used lots of fall dahlias, ranunculus, garden roses, hydrangea, and more- it was so much fun to work with color!! The bouquets were tied off our fall-inspired Crimson silk ribbon

Brittany and Jason had an absolutely beautiful August wedding day at Early Mountain Vineyards, near Charlottesville, Virginia! Early Mountain is one of my absolute favorite wedding venues in the Charlottesville area- in the summertime, the outdoor ceremony space is full of white blooming hydrangea bushes, and the neutral indoor space always looks so beautiful accented with natural greenery and an abundance of candlelight. Brittany and Jason envisioned a vibrant, fall-inspired wedding color palette, with shades of burgundy, golden bronze and burnt apricot, paired with greenery, including eucalyptus and my summer favorite- hops!! To bring their vision to life, we used lots of garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, deep red anemones, and more- it was so much fun to work with color!!
