Our story begins as a dream…
I opened my business in 1990, making wedding flowers on my parent’s dining room table. I have since grown up and now own my own shop. We specialize in wedding and special event flowers and decorations, and host outdoor wedding ceremonies. I am proud to have personally worked with over 3,500 weddings in nearly 30 years. My favorite part of my job is brainstorming with couples to create their dream wedding flowers.
The most important thing that I have learned is: that I could make the most beautiful bouquet, but if it would not be the right bouquet for the bride, she would be disappointed.
A bride’s personality is just as important to consider when picking out flowers as her bridesmaids dress color. There are no right or wrong answers, the correct answer is dependent on the look that the couple is going for.
Visualizing is usually the most difficult thing for a bride to do when we discuss her bouquet. I often thought how wonderful it would be if there was a computer program that could create 3D bridal bouquets. This program would allow a bride to design her own bouquet without any artistic skill or computer knowledge.
After years of thinking “I should” I decided that it was time to take action and see what I could do, to help create this valuable tool. With the support of my wonderful husband Todd, children TJ, Ellie and Matthew; family; friends; and the help of very talented computer programmers, we were able to create such a program.
I must stress, this program is merely a tool to help a bride visualize her wedding bouquet. It is not meant to replace or contradict the opinion of your florist. Your florist is the best person to give you advise on: bouquet design, availability, durability and price of flowers.
I hope that you have as much fun working with Bridal Bouquet Builder as I did making it.
Best Wishes and Happy Planning!
