So, when we got married, Julia was the one we chose w/o hesitation to design our flowers. Even after having known of her work for so long, I was absolutely blown away with what she created for us - and on short notice, too - as we decided to ditch the planning and elope :) My bouquet was over the top gorgeous - and so were all of her other creations!!
A few tips for future brides: 1) call Julia to design your flowers! and 2) consider just telling her a little about your style and colors, and the types of flowers you like - then, rather than showing her a pic and saying "I want my flowers to look just like this", turn her loose to work her magic - that's what I did and I can tell you that I couldn't possibly have imagined arrangements as beautiful as what she created for us!!
Awww! Thank you for this great review, Erin. It meant so much to me to be able to design your wedding flowers (even in a hurry!) And you are so right -- if brides only knew that their flowers could be uniquely theirs, and not just a recreation of something on Pinterest, it would free up the creativity, making my job unbelievably more wonderful than it already is. Congratulations and blessings to you and Bill.
