About Us

Who are you? Who do you want to become?

When we talk to you about your wedding flowers, we don't ask what your "wedding colors" are… we don't ask what your "theme" is… or what your favorite flower is. What we want to know is how you want your guests to feel as they enter the celebration and the feelings you want evoked as you sit back and take in the scene. Do you picture your big day as serene and spiritual? Or festive and spirited? Simple and modern? Or glam and luxe?

We like to say that each event tells a story. It could be a true-to-life event or conjured in a midsummer night's vision. We are here to create the looking glass. We help to seduce your guests and capture their spirits. A stir is created... anticipation builds... and drama is unleashed! We help to seduce your guests and capture their spirits. From the arrival of your first guest, to the departure of the last… our team will create an environment that transports your guests to world that is all your own!
