Flowers & design are my passion. My fresh, innovative approach to floral design incorporates fresh florals that are sure to delight. I will infuse your personality, taste and style into your flowers & decor, making it a perfect day no one can forget. What is it that inspires you? The wallpaper in your living room, the color of your favorite ice cream, the vintage silk hankerchief you bouqht at a flea market? The things that inspire you do so because they evoke certain feelings. My goal is to take what inspires you and infuse it into your event! My style spans from modern, artful forms to arrangements that trend toward traditional, romantic, to beautiful, vintage, & rustic. I will guide you to flowers that fit the flavor of your event, keeping in mind what's in season and what fits your budget. I work as a wedding florist out of a charming studio in my home in beautiful Red Wing, Minnesota. I travel up to 100 miles for weddings. Consults and estimates are complimentary. Email me any inspiration pictures you have of flowers that you love, a list of flowers you need, and your budget and I will design an estimate to fit your special day!
I "heart" the DIY bride! Brides often come to me with their own crafts they are creating or things they have purchased to use to decorate for their big day. Let me do the work of setting everything up on your special day so that you & your family/friends can relax and enjoy your the entire weekend stress free. Brides have also hired me to do the setup of their placecards, favors, programs......no small task is too small. I am obsessed with the little details & take pride in creativing a magical & beautiful wedding for each bride I work with. I also have an amazing, unique, & ever-growing collection of wedding rentals! I will also tirelessly search for any item that you are dreaming of having whether it's a vintage sewing box for use as your cardbox or the perfect shade of blush pink ribbon for your bouquet.
Alot of brides spend countless hours dreaming, designing, and "pinning" their dream wedding! I specialize in taking those details and executing your vision on your big day for you so you can concentrate on the most important thing – the groom! ;) I will do all the work of setting up on your big day so that you and your family & friends can sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day.
Wedding bouquet at a glance? What was included?
My bridal bouquet included peach garden roses, peach spray roses, white ranunculus, white wax flower, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, varigated pitt greens, a small succulent, and a medium succulent. The stems were wrapped with ribbon and finished with a brooch. My three bridesmaids had slightly smaller versions of my bouquet. All came in vases we kept.
All the bouquets were fresh, full and absolutely gorgeous. I told Nikki what I had in mind, and she was able to create exactly what I was envisioning. I got so many compliments on the bouquets!
We also had wrist corsages for our moms with small peach spray roses, white wax flower, and greens and succulent boutonnieres for the guys, which turned out well. Much better alternative to big floppy flowers that never stay on well!
What style of centerpieces? Shape? Flowers? Ornaments?
Our centerpieces included varying loose bouquets in a variety of glass vases and jars. The bouquets included peach roses, peach spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, varigatted pitt greens, and white waxflower.
All were gorgeous, and she even threw in a few extra bouquets on the food and cocktail tables that we were not invoiced for. We were also able to keep all the bouquets and vases.
Favorite wedding flower arrangement?
My bridal bouquet was my favorite arrangement that Nikki created. Some of my favorite wedding photos are the ones of the bouquet!
How did the florist meet your needs & budget?
Absolutely! We told Nikki the price point we were comfortable with, and she designed something for us that stayed within our budget.
