As I've gained more clients ordering a bridal bouquet recreation in silk flowers, I've become more and more convinced that fresh wedding flowers can come with some risks and how awesome the option of silk wedding flowers actually is! I've had customers who loved their bouquet and just wanted a replica, and I've also had customers who wished they had silk flowers to begin with. Let me preface Ana's story by telling you briefly about my first winter in Minnesota.
That first winter, I made the mistake of leaving for an early college class with wet hair. As I walked out to get in the car (which I failed to let run for a while) I began hearing a crackling noise. That's right, my hair was freezing. Now imagine what can happen with delicate flowers meant to thrive in warm environments!
My story is funny, but Ana's is not quite laughable. Married on New Year's in Minnesota, you know it's going to be cold, but what Ana didn't know is that her flowers were at risk of freezing. And that's exactly what happened! They were able to squeeze in some shots before her Anemone's turned completely brown, but she ended up having to pull them out of her bouquet before she even walked down the aisle! Her bouquet was amazingly beautiful, but it must have been hard to swallow the loss of flowers she paid good money for!
When she contacted me to recreate her bridal bouquet in silk flowers, I was so excited to proceed because her bouquet was just stunning. Here's a side-by-side of the recreation and the original. Photos provided by Mark Fierst Photography.
