I LOVE to create wedding flowers! Bridal bouquets, coordinating bridesmaids’ bouquets, boutonnieres, flower crowns, table decor, installations – it’s a total rush for me to make these for you, especially if you value local, seasonal flowers!
I consider my style somewhat rustic, in that I like to mix what I grow and what I forage to create unique designs. I use locally grown, seasonal flowers, greenery and herbs, sourced directly from my farm or from other western Massachusetts farmers, but I’m also happy to source in non-local flowers to mix with our home-grown ones if that’s what your heart (and the season!) desires!
First step: check out past weddings, browse my instagram, and see if you like my style. Get inspired! Read my post about how I do wedding consultations for full service weddings.
Next step: email me, and we’ll set up a time to talk!
Like what you see? Email me and let’s talk!
And in case you’re wondering what is in season, when, I think your best bet to see what I grow and when, look through my Facebook page and my Instagram page, and here’s a general guideline:
- January – April: I will need to source out. I can often get locally grown greenhouse flowers April-May, and I try to source direct from other flower farmers whenever possible. Most flowers are available if we go far enough afield, so let’s talk!
- May: lilacs and bulb flowers (tulips, fancy daffodils, leucojeum) and flowering branches as well as, depending on the weather, peonies and anenomes.
- late May – June: peonies! also the tulips, leucojeum, orlaya, delphinium, larkspur, sweet william, salvia, lupine, anenome, snapdragons, clematis, eryngium, veronica, iris, various perennials.
- July: snapdragons, early dahlias, daisies, rudbeckia, early sunflowers, phlox, various amazing perennials including eryngium, veronica, and astilbe.
- August: DAHLIAS. And fancy zinnias, scabiosa, celosia, lisianthus, amaranthus, rudbeckia, sunflowers, as well as many different perennial flowers like veronica, butterfly bush and various grasses.
- September: more DAHLIAS, hydrangea, zinnias, celosia, lisianthus, amaranthus, heirloom chrysanthemums, and lots of perennials.
- October: is tricky! This is our month of frost, so depending on when it happens I could have dahlias or it will be whatever I can source out plus heirloom chrysanthemums, which are gorgeous and not the same kind of mums that you buy at the big box stores.
- November: possibly heirloom chrysanthemums, but mostly outsourced flowers.
- December: all things evergreen mixed with outsourced elements.
If you book your wedding or event early enough, I can also make sure what I’m growing fits what you’re looking for!
