When you love what you do, it shows! We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Vermont wedding florist, Emily, the brains behind the beauty that is M’s Wedding Flowers.
Located in Moretown, Vermont, Emily works with couples of all budgets and wedding aesthetics. (Think: romantic to rustic to garden party… she covers it all!) M’s Wedding Flowers offers uniquely beautiful bouquets, centerpieces, arbors, and more for your special day. Read on to see Emily’s stunning work and learn more about her take on floral design.
How did you get into wedding floral arrangements?
I was fortunate enough to be hired at my local floral shop fresh out of high school. I worked there for a few years before going to school, where I studied plants and landscape architecture. Once I left school I worked for a landscaping company in Woodstock before switching back to floral when I was laid off for the winter. Once I got my hands back on floral arranging, there was no turning back!
How would you describe your floral arrangement style?
I love building natural bouquets that really show off the individual flowers. I also love working with unique florals, and I love to add fruits to bouquets.
What inspires your work?
The flowers themselves and each couple’s individual style. I love picking out the right flowers to bring a couple’s vision to life!
Any special tips for couples for choosing/working with a wedding florist in general?
Have a good vision for your florals but be flexible in letting your florist guide you. Floristry is an art.
What’s your favorite moment during a wedding?
My favorite part of a wedding is getting to see the space transformed! It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve been to a particular venue, it always looks new and magical once everything is set up and in place!
What’s your favorite thing to do in VT?
My favorite things to do in Vermont are gardening, swimming in the river, bonfires, and playing around with snow photography.
If you weren’t a wedding florist what would you do?
I would probably be drafting landscapes and gardening!
What’s a fun fact about yourself?
I love to draw and sometimes draw out my bouquets before I build them for clients.
