It was so much fun! We chose three beautiful young girls to play bride for the day, Blondie's Bridal Salon supplied dresses, and Jessica Lynn Salon did their hair and make-up. Here are some of the designs:
These girls totally rocked it, and Mandy went above and beyond expectations as far as photography went. To see more pictures, visit her blog and website at naylorphoto.com. As part of her blogpost for this shoot, she conducted an interview for me, which I've never had to do yet. It left me, as the owner and designer of the business, with more understanding as to why I love what I do, which I found funny. There were a few questions in which the awnsers really helped pin-point my design technique:
What sets you apart from others? Every floral designer has a different 'style,' and that all depends on who you learned from. Like I mentioned, I tried to learn from many, taking the best of everyone and incorporating all of it into MY style. I also pride myself on creating unique florals. No vase that goes out the door is the same as another. I worked at one shop (name disclosed) that set their business up with a flower 'menu,' so to say. It works for them, and it's great for a man to come in who is unfamiliar with flowers, point to a picture, and order something for the misses. But you know what? 5 neighbors received the same arrangement that Mother's Day. Maybe that's a great business tool, but that's not for me. Like I said, I want the 'wow' factor... every. time. Even if its a simple rose in a bud vase, you're going to have a little sparkle, a little 'jersey' bling... And no one is going to receive the same arrangement delivered to them. It was created just for YOU.
I also work out of my home, therefore having no overhead. I buy my flowers directly from the wholesaler. That ensures you are getting a quality freshness, you are getting a great price, and you know who will be handling your order, and is accessable and easy to reach. I am also a preferred vendor through Blondie's Bridal Salon and work amongst many other very talented vendors in the bridal business.
Describe your designs in 5 words. Funky. Unique. Sentimental. Pretty. Fresh.
What are your favorite supplies/flowers to work with? I like to incorporate feathers, rhinestones, gems, branches, beads, sparkles, rocks, gems... Anything that'll give it that extra touch. My all time favorite flower is very popular, a peony. White. But I also love oncidium orchids, antique hydrangea, garden roses, tuberose, dusty miller, parrot tulips, astilbe, ranunculus, anemone... I guess I simply love it all! Haha. :)
