Favorite behind the scenes 2018

I attempt to make time during final event prep to capture the beauty in my studio - with limited success. Depending on the day I may have the perfect light and plenty of time to play, snapping dozens on shots with my iPhone before the flowers go out the door. Other’s it’s mad dash to snap 3 as they are loaded into a vehicle. I may have captured just what I wanted but more often than not, I hope and pray the professionals can capture my work for me.

Here are some of my favorite shots from the studio (and front pathway and backyard) that I captured in 2018.

All boxed up!

Time for a closeup.

This was apparently the year I spent an inordinate amount of time oohing and awing over roses and ranunculus.

Last but not least

my favorite little flower helper.

Congratulations - You're planning a wedding, I'm here to help!

Planning a wedding is a big undertaking and not something most people do every day. Amidst the joy and excitement that comes with an engagement, you’re inundated with dozens of decisions and choices. From the small to the large, you’re trying to fit the pieces together to shape your best day and the beginning of a new life with the one you love.

I intend to make the flower portion of planning easy, stress free and of course deliver an absolutely gorgeous final product on your wedding day. Whether you’re planning an intimate elopement or a giant party, I’d love to be a part of your celebration.

I offer two options for clients:

  1. Pickup at the studio. This is a great option for smaller weddings with only personal flowers (bouquets and boutonnières). It can also include basic centerpieces or DIY buckets for reception flowers

  2. Full Service for medium to large weddings which includes delivery of personal flowers prior to photos and complete setup of ceremony and reception flowers. Teardown option is available following your party.

Here’s a quick overview of the Whirly Girl process.

Reach out - Complete this form, give me a call or drop a DM on instagram or facebook to get the conversation started. Providing your date up front allows me to confirm availability first thing.

Information collection - Once I confirm availability, we’ll start with some wedding basics which you can provide via this questionnaire. It’s helpful to know your color scheme and flower wish list along with your anticipated wedding part size, number of guests and budget. You may not have answers to all these items (or they might change as planning goes forward) but simply provide your best guess to get started. Are you using Pinterest to collect some inspiration? Great! Please be sure to add me to your board (or include a link) so I can see what you’re dreaming about.

Estimate - After reviewing your information I’ll provide a basic estimate for you to review. I typically provide one estimate with a basic visual proposal prior to booking with a one week expiration. If necessary, we can make one revision prior to booking. Once accepted, I’ll provide a contract for review and deposit details.

Booking - Yay! you want to work with Whirly Girl for your wedding. Return the signed contract and deposit. We’ll make time to chat, discuss options in detail and nail down specifics. I’ll also provide a schedule so you know what to expect from Whirly Girl in the coming months in order to make your flower dreams come true.

Questions? I’d love to hear them. Use this form or shoot me an email
