The Fleur Amis story
What do you get when you combine someone with a great eye, an inspiring imagination and a passion for flowers? You get me. Hi. My name is Patricia Pearlman. Five years ago I left my regular job to pursue my burning passion - floral design and I've never looked back.
Imagination is everything
As a self-taught florist, my floral design work doesn't look like everyone else's and my outlook on wedding work is different, too. At Fleur Amis, you'll never find a package deal or a cookie-cutter approach - what you will find is a floral statement created with enthusiasm and imagination that reflects your desires and personality - flowers that match who you are while creating a beautiful, memorable setting for you and your guests.
I know that choosing a florist can be a daunting job. That's why I offer a complimentary one-hour consultation. During that hour, you'll have time to look through our wedding portfolios, ask questions and share your ideas. Even more importantly, we'll both have a chance to get to know each other. If you like what you see and hear, I'll personally guide you through every step of this exciting, creative process while paying close attention to your taste and budget. My clients often say that this initial consultation was one of the high points in their wedding planning - that it was fun and inspiring and, in the end, produced something that unquestionably reflected their style - but even better than they'd imagined.
It's your day and only your day
One of the reasons why Fleur Amis has enjoyed so much success is because I take personal responsibility for every aspect of your floral design work -- from design meetings, to hand selecting the flowers, to set-up and installation, I'm there for you. In fact, unlike other florists, I only accept one event per date. Which means that on your wedding day, I'm one hundred percent 'yours.' Should you have a question or a problem or even a last-minute request, you can count on me to take care of it.
Fortunately, my devotedness means that you can forget the typical floral horror stories (the disappointed brides who endured the wrong flowers; the unexpectedly altered color palette; the late delivery people; the "oh, we thought your wedding was next weekend" heart-stopping phone call). These unfortunate scenarios happen, but they won't happen to you - not when you work with Fleur Amis. That's because I don't overbook and I don't leave important details to someone else. I call this approach "doing it differently" and it's this philosophy that has led me to my latest creative endeavor.
Starting this fall I will be offering floral classes for those brides who want to do some, or all, of the floral design work themselves. Don't worry you don't have to have a green thumb or a degree in fine arts to create your own wedding flowers. By attending one of my classes you'll get some great ideas for doing it your way and saving money, too. Plus, the day before your wedding I can provide you and your girlfriends with all of the flowers, tools, and containers you'll need. Feel free to contact me for more details on upcoming classes or private instruction.
Choosing the right florist isn't only about the flowers
Without a doubt, selecting the right florist is an important part of the wedding planning process and certainly, artistic talent is an important consideration when making that choice. But, equally important is the interpersonal dynamic - the unspoken 'connection' that develops when two people come together for a common goal. Whether you want me to design your wedding flowers for you, or teach you how to do it yourself, our goal is always the same: to exceed your wildest expectations.
