Weddings

Whether you're planning a full-scale dream wedding or a more intimate celebration, let your floral designs shine. Services are available for weddings of all sizes in Chicagoland and Southeastern Wisconsin. No event minimums (I LOVE micro weddings!) and I only service one wedding each week so you'll be sure to have complete and undivided attention from me and my team. Every design that comes out of my studio in Antioch, IL is customized to your style, venue and budget.

Events

My passion for flowers doesn't stop at weddings. Floral design services are also available for bridal showers, baby showers, quincenearas, bar/bat mitzvahs, milestone birthdays, vow renewals, memorial services and celebrations of life.

My Process:

Most clients book my services 12-18 months out, but I do still have some prime dates left for 2023! Please contact me to inquire about availability.

  • 8-18 months out:   Initial phone consultation (free). Review inspiration boards, chemistry check, share ideas.

  • 3-5 days later:      Custom proposal including recommended flowers, colors and itemized costs. Revisions welcome!

  • Commitment:          Secure your date with a $500 retainer which applies to your balance. But please don't wait, my calendar fills fast!

  • Ongoing:                Planning, changes and detail refinement by phone, email, text, video conference or in person, whichever you prefer.

  • 6 weeks prior:        50% of remaining balance due. Submit payment by Zelle or check for a 5% discount!

  • 4 weeks prior:        Final phone consultation to review all details, share in the excitement of planning and/or commiserate. ;)

  • 2 weeks prior:        Quick phone check-in to confirm all details. Final payment due.

  • A few days prior:   My team and I create your designs and enjoy every minute. <3

  • Wedding day:        Delivery, setup and installation. I can't wait to see you on your best day ever!

A Note on Love...

I strongly believe that love is love and celebrate all forms of it. I proudly create flowers for all weddings and events regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs.  All are welcome here.

 

about.

There's a reason why life's most meaningful moments are often accompanied by the beauty of flowers. They bring the smiles we long to see, say the words we sometimes cannot find and mark the significance of the memories we will hold in our hearts forever. Expression through flowers is my passion and I would love to share that passion with you.

 

I discovered my love of flowers after happening upon a bustling flower shop that needed extra help. Over the years I observed couples struggle with the complexity and expense of wedding flowers and noticed how complicated (and expensive!) the wedding industry had become. I vowed to one day put my talents to use helping other couples make their "best day ever" simple, beautiful and affordable.

 

Today, I am an independent florist providing custom fresh flower design services to couples in Chicagoland and Southeastern Wisconsin from my studio in Antioch, IL. Without the high overhead costs of a retail flower shop, I am able to pass the savings on to you! Floristry is my full-time job and I only service one wedding a week, which ensures that you'll get my complete and undivided attention. While you're busy focusing on all your final details, my team and I will be here, attending to every single stem. 

I am delighted to be considered for your most special day!
