One of my favorite parts of being a designer is when I get to personally deliver my brides' flowers and get to experience the moment when they see the finished product for the first time. I can say with confidence, that it is always such a delightful experience to unveil those custom-designed beauties and just watch my client's face light up. Recently, I had two opportunities to hand-deliver wedding flowers and come face to face with the brides I had been working with for months. Over the next week, I'm going to share a little bit about how those meet-ups went and show you some snapshots of their arrangements.
I have to say that it's always a little conflicting for me to send the flowers off whether by mail or in person. Not because I want to keep them for myself...no no, trust me, I have enough flowers to keep me cheery. But it's because I spend a lot of time communicating with some of the happiest people on earth. They are getting married and are excited about this new adventure in their life and I get to share in it with them! Working with each bride becomes one extended conversation that often leaks over into the personal and in that way I feel like I make a new friend each time. So I'm sad because it's like the conversation has come to an end. But then the best part is, a few weeks or months later, I get that unexpected e-mail with to-die-for pictures of beautiful brides with the biggest smiles on their faces and an exciting story to share. And because of that, it's with joy and happiness that I drive those flowers to the post office or to meet you at a coffee shop and send off my creations with happy wishes and marital blessings to those awesome ladies I've come to know and appreciate.
For those of you I never get the pleasure of meeting, check out my testimonial page to see some of the responses to working with me long-distance. So near, far, wherever you are (thank you Celine) your perfect flowers are just an e-mail, phone call, or Jpeg away.
