My name is Erin Rose Specht and I have been working with flowers for over 12 years. I grew up in this industry and take great pride in my work as a designer. I am also a new wife and have just gone through the (pleasure? pain?) of wedding planning. I totally understand the stress/ pressure and love/ hate relationship with planning your wedding. I am here to help you create your vision for your wedding day, none of the events I do are ever exactly the same because I don't believe that any 2 couples are exactly the same. Every wedding I do should tell a story about the couple. Incorporating a special flower that was given on a first date, using a beloved family heirloom in the decor or just the feeling that whole vibe of the decor reflects the couple themselves is what I love about the events I am able to create for my clients. I use my background knowledge and expertise in flowers and decor to help you create the look of your wedding and ensure that I am with you from the first consultation meeting, personally design and construct all of the florals for your sample meeting and am on the ground to oversee construction and execution of the florals the day of the wedding. Due to the boutique nature of my business and the individualized attention I like to give each of my brides I am only able to take 2 events per day so if you are interested in getting a quote put together let me know as soon as possible!
The first thing is getting in contact with me to see that I have your date/ deliver to your ceremony/ reception venue to do this I ask you to fill out a small contact information form. (For an example click here)
The second after I have made sure the basics for your wedding all look good, I send you a questionnaire to better get the ideas for your vision, it is a little long but it really helps me paint the full picture of your wedding day in the proposal.
After you fill out the questionnaire I will put together a proposal mock up, click here to view an example of our proposal.
STEP 1: PROPOSAL MEETING
The first in person meeting for us is to go over the proposal and the vision for your wedding, here we can discuss other options for the decor and really get into the details of the flower options and accessories! (You get to check out my very cool stock pile of awesome wedding accessories and look into our floral coolers for further inspiration!) (This meeting typically takes anywhere from 30- 45 minutes)
From there if everything looks good I will take a $250 deposit to hold your date for you!
STEP 2: SAMPLE MEETING
After the Proposal Meeting we pencil in a tentative date for your sample meeting, this can either be 2-3 months before your wedding date or if you are a super planner and we have the full year, we can do your sample meeting a year out from your wedding. In the sample meeting you will see the full mock up of 2 of your pieces, this can include a bouquet and centerpiece or 2 centerpiece options. That way we can break down the pieces and more fully discuss the style and flowers. This is a fun meeting because it really gives a taste of how amazing and beautiful your wedding will be! At the end of this meeting I take 50% of the remaining balance. (This is a fairly detailed meeting so I tell clients it can take 45- 60 minutes)
AFTER THIS MEETING
After this meeting I will revise anything that needs to be revised and send you a copy of your proposal with the sample meeting pictures added in for you.
STEP 3: FINAL MEETING
Our third and final meeting happens about 2 weeks- 10 days before the wedding, here is where we finalize all the quantities and timing for delivery, the name and contact of your photographer (that way we can be sure to get pictures of all the beautiful flowers and decor taken for you!) and the name/ contact of any day of planner or matre'd at the venue with whom we will need to set-up timing with. At this point if you have anything you need to drop off to me I will take those items then! At the end of this meeting final payment is due, anything added on last minute after this meeting will be put on a credit card. (This meeting is pretty quick- I tell clients to block out only about 20-30 minutes for this one.)
AFTER THIS MEETING
Enjoy your day and don't forget to send me pictures!!!

Gorgeous wedding flowers
Erin is amazingly talented, fun to work with, helpful with suggestions and just navigates the entire wedding planning with such naturally gifted ease. Erin did our daughter's wedding and everything was just more beautiful than we could have imagined. We had last minute changes due to COVID and Erin easily adapted accordingly. We highly recommend Erin...you will not be disappointed!Sent on 07/14/2020

Erin is absolutely amazing!!
Erin was the best! We met with Erin back in February this year. We sat down with her in her flower shop and I talked with her about the wedding themes, colors and showed her some pinterest images that were my inspiration. Erin absolutely nailed it!! She completely understood what I was looking for and made the flowers look so beautiful on the wedding day.Sent on 12/31/2020
