FLORAL DESIGN

Floral Design

Inspired, Sustainable, Local, and Energy-focused with a touch of wild & whimsy!

As a sustainably-focused Floral Designer, my florals are created with the Earth, local environment + economy, and seasons in mind. I proudly source 90-100% of the flowers and foliage that I use from local growers + some foraging, with the balance sourced domestically (<1% of what I use is imported.)

I prioritize using vintage, salvaged, thrifted & locally-made vessels, hardgoods, and decorative elements, and am a "foam-free" designer, using biodegradable, compostable, + recyclable alternatives.

"Leftovers" are dried, composted, or if the couple wishes, can be gifted to their guests or donated to local hospitals, senior care facilities, addiction treatment centers, or domestic-abuse sanctuaries, sharing the beauty of their flowers beyond their celebration!

As with all of my offerings, love is at the forefront of my creations. My work is for every couple –

no matter your race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, ability, & beyond.

My Floral Design experience is as versatile as my designs! I casually dappled in Floral Design academically through a couple of classes at the University of Rhode Island and Floral Art School in Los Angeles. Things really got serious between me and flowers, however, in 2019 when I began using florals and plants almost daily in my work as a Photo Stylist + Set Designer in Los Angeles. Upon my return to New England in 2021, I serendipitously connected with Weatherlow Florals where I became Assistant Floral Design Manager and was given the gift of being mentored by local flower-legend Phoebe Poole. Since then, I have flowered over 60 weddings and events from backyard soirees to Newport Mansions and have grown my skill-set, flower knowledge, and repertoire in ways I'd never imagined! In addition to flowering for the folks who book me, I also continue to freelance and collaborate with other talented designers from all-over the country, as I believe deeply and whole-heartedly that we are forever students and gain so much when we connect in our craft and learn from eachother. Designing with florals has grown to be one of my favorite artistic practices and making expressive, beautiful, & whimsical things with them is a meditation in creativity for me.

"I’ve been trying the find the words to thank you and I don’t think there are enough in this world!! My whole body & soul feels so full. Seeing you that morning made my heart soar, your presence made everything feel perfect. We are so thankful to have met you and for everything you did to make our wedding a dream! Everyone kept telling us how beautiful the flowers and drift wood arrangements were!! You have a talent & heart that radiates. You made us all feel so beautiful. Thank you thank you"

- Devon & Oliver

"We had an amazing team and your work was an amazingly beautiful part of our day. We loved the personal touch that you put into the work, and we could feel your well wishes. Thank you so so much for all you did and who you are. We will forever remember and appreciate this day and are so grateful for the part you played in that." - Kaitlyn & Jonathan

"Thank you again for making our wedding so incredible. The flowers were ABSOLUTELY stunning - completely surpassed my expectations. I got endless compliments on them." - Bre & Dylon

"I just wanted to THANK YOU for the absolutely stunning flowers on our wedding day. You completely captured what I was looking for and went beyond my wildest dreams! The bouquet, table and Sofreh flowers looked like works of art thanks to your arrangements. Countless guests said they were the most beautiful wedding flowers they had ever seen, and I agree! I wish I could freeze my bouquet and keep it forever. Thank you again for being so receptive, patient and creative with our vision and feedback. We will not hesitate to recommend your work to friends and family in the future." - Brittany & Cyrus

"You made my vision not only come to life but so much more!!! You are a gift to work with - thank you!"

- Julie & Andrew

"We wanted to send you a heartfelt thank you for the incredible job you did with the flowers. The color combo was so spot on and the look was exactly as I imagined it. I received so many compliments on the floral arrangements. Everyone thought it was different and fun/whimsical in a way they had not seen before, while also being so classy and fitting for the setting. Lots of specific comments on the Chuppah as well!! I could continue to rave about the flowers but it's also worth noting how great it was working with you. From the moment we met, you were the consummate professional and I was able to really trust you. Given all the different vendors you end up working with on your wedding day, having someone I trusted and felt like they understood my vision was such a pleasure." - Danielle & Michael

"You absolutely KILLED IT!!! I mean speechless. The flowers and decor… STUNNING. Abby and I are so appreciative of your efforts. You really made the wedding beautiful. Thank you, thank you!"

- Keri, Mother-of-the-Bride
