The little cherubs go bouncing down the aisle, eliciting the warm-up "oohs" and "aahs" before the bride's big entrance. While the traditions have dictated frilly white dresses and white wicker baskets, one up-and-comer is adding a little bit of new style into the mix.
Kiley, owner and designer for Cherry Blossoms Designs was kind enough to fill us in on her business, her inspiration, and her life.
I established Cherry Blossoms in 2006 when my baby girl was born. I sought high quality unique hair accessories that were both beautiful, functional, and affordable, with no success.
I began fabricating my own designs with distribution amongst friends and family. Compliments and inquiries from others soon followed, as well as numerous requests for customized work. I decided it was time to make the big jump and began selling my creations.
Where her inspiration comes from:
My inspiration would definitely have to be my daughter, Ella. She is just this amazing little person. If an item doesn't feel comfortable on her or look good on her I will not sell it. She is my little muse I guess you could say.
How this could relate to the wedding world:
I have done many custom orders for Flower girls and Bridesmaids...my hair accessories are all handmade and all unique.
On the benefits of using silk flowers:
I love using silk flowers on my designs because unlike real flowers they won't wilt, fall off, or turn brown!I only use the best quality of silk flowers available...they look and feel real to the touch!
Fun facts about Kylie:
I am married to the love of my life, I am a stay at home mom, an actress, and I also do graphic design on the side....I don't know how I do it some days...but it keeps my days busy and full of creativity and fun! I love what I do and I am so lucky to work with such amazing customers!
