I'm an independent bridal specialist, eleven years now. I have been designing weddings in Portland and love, love Portland brides versatile range of styles. I have learned to be ready to design anything out of the box.
My commitment is to make sure that every bouquet carried down the aisle is all that the Bride imagined and more. That bridal bouquet and style is then carried through out the rest of the wedding flower design. I personally work closely with each bride or couple from start to finish to create arrangements that express the couple's style and reflect their personality. I specialize in natural hand-tied bouquets and in using more flowers in each wedding per dollar. No overhead costs so I can pass savings on to you. I'm passionate about all the latest wedding floral trends and design, but love to create special requests and something specially catered to each Bride. I only use the freshest blooms, and locally grown when ever possible. My designs are spirited and high style and must have the "wow" effect. The possibilities for wedding flowers are limitless; Amnesia (brown) Rose, Monkey Tails, Jumbo foot-sized Hydrangea's, succulents, blue roses and rare Orchids are just some of the hard-to-get flowers I've found for my brides while respecting their budgets. What I am saying is I go all out for my Brides and put in the extra hours of labor to get the look we want. I put endless time and care into each weddings, because I can. My only focus is to make your wedding flowers the best possible flowers you could ever dream of, and keep within your budget. It does not matter to me if the wedding or budget is small or large, the wedding flowers will be amazing, I promise!
All the Best, planning your once-in-a-lifetime wedding!
Your personal wedding florist,
