From a flower farming perspective, the creative process of cultivating unique, seasonal wedding flowers can begin a year or more in advance. When I’m planning my crops and working in the field, I’m thinking of the couples that I’ve spoken with, knowing that the lives of the flowers that I grow will be well-lived when they serve to bring joy to occasions such as these. I am humbled and honored when I am chosen by a couple as their Flower Farmer and Florist, and trusted to decorate the space for a ceremony and celebration that will hold so much meaning for everyone involved.
The majority of the flowers that I use in weddings are flowers that I have grown, but when I need to supplement with blooms or foliage from another farm, I source from SLO County first, then California farms with a preference for Organic flowers. Being mindful of the carbon footprint of the conventional floral industry, I do not work with international imports or flowers that are not seasonally available in our region.
Wedding planning is super exciting, but with a lot of details and ideas swirling around, it can get complicated and confusing, I get it. First and foremost, I’m a farmer, and on a flower farm, efficiency is EVERYTHING. So with that in mind, I’ve done my best to eliminate the guesswork, provide transparent pricing and streamline the planning process.
