Elena sat down with Vermont Weddings to share what got her into floral design, and what she loves most about weddings. Read on to learn more.
How did you get into wedding floral arrangements?
We started doing wedding florals when we grew and designed the flowers for our own wedding. We were able to do this after buying our 11 acre homestead in spring of 2021. Since then, we have been expanding the farm to a low us to grow flowers all season long.
How would you describe your floral arrangement style?
My style is classic, lush floral arrangements. We love to mix greenery and focal florals to add dimension and balance but not take away from the couple on their big day.
What inspires your work?
I am inspired by the seasons in Vermont as well as the couple’s personal style. I try to balance the two to create florals that match your and the environment where the event is.
Any special tips for couples for working with a wedding florist?
Wedding flowers work in the background to accentuate the venue and to draw the attention of the guests to the romantic moments. As a wedding florist we want to ensure that we are able to make your vision come to life while balancing your budget.
What’s your favorite moment during a wedding?
My favorite moment is watching the couple’s faces as they walk down the aisle. The emotion is so pure and beautiful.
What’s your favorite thing to do in VT?
We love going to Cold Hollow Cider in the fall and getting cider donuts with a hot cup of apple cider. There is nothing better.
If you weren’t a wedding florist what would you do?
Wedding floral design is only part of my career. When I am not working with flowers or tending to the farm, you can find me working in public health to improve the health of the perinatal population.
What’s a fun fact about yourself?
Although Sam and I love flowers, we love our cat, Pabst more!
