This editorial was most intriguing, not to mention so beautiful! Floral designers Sebesta Design, Kate Farley Design, and Cottage Flowers know how harrowing it can be when choosing the right person for the job to create the blooms for a wedding. To lend out a helping hand to couples in the process of selecting, these mavens of floral-making created a pretend set of criteria based on a faux couple’s color palette and style. From there, they let their imaginations run amok and the end results photographed by Redfield Photography turned into a dazzling editorial and the creations are nothing short of bliss!
From floral designer, Sebesta Design: As fun as wedding planning can be, it can also be somewhat confusing and a little stressful. Comparisons can be tough, especially when you are talking about design. As floral designers we often get clients who could use some guidance to understand that each designer they meet with will have a unique interpretation of the their vision.
In an effort to help couples, we decided to come up with a pretend set of criteria, so we could show that each floral designer will have their own take on a couple’s color palette and style.
While we all have similar tastes in floral design, we also have our own artistic influences that you’ll see in this interpretation…. So let’s begin!
Our base criteria:
Color Palette: Coral, Mauve, Peach
Style: Organic with lots of texture
Favorite Flowers: Garden Roses, Ranunculus
Other than choosing accent colors to add to our color palette, we were sure not to tell each other what the other one was doing.
Pomme was chosen as the venue because it was beautifully designed by Peach Tree & Ward to work with a variety of styles and the neutral color palette allowed us to take our designs in any direction.
Being friends (and competitors) it was such an amazing experience for us as well. I know we all had that “Oh! I like yours better!!!” moment, that made it that much more fun.
We really hope this helps couples see how each designer they meet with will have a different take on their design. Our best advice is to look a vendor’s website and social media to really get a feel for what they do well and see if it meshes with their wedding. You’ll know it as you look through their portfolio. This will help tremendously when narrowing down their options.
