TO THE TABLE
What makes Floriography stand out? On top of the stunning floral designs, you'll also be treated to a unique and very personal customer service approach. The face you see here on this page is the same person behind every consultation, email, floral design and hand-delivery involved in my process. The details of your wedding florals will not be passed around to a large corporation of employees and freelancers but will be personally attended to by myself and my intimate team; ensuring each and every detail is cohesive and exquisitely executed.
Every flower variety is hand picked for my clients and no two designs are alike. Your wedding day should be a reflection of your personalities and each individual couple's designs will reflect just that. My personal design style is very lush and romantic which, blended perfectly with your preferences, creates an individualized style perfected for you. I design with only the highest quality, freshest flowers sourced both locally and from all around the world. These blooms are then arranged with more than 10 years of expertise in floral designing.
Optional event design services include rental item selection assistance, floor layout design, vendor recommendations and more. Elements such as your venue, color palette, bridal party attire and more will contribute to the overall aesthetic that will be portrayed throughout your entire floral collection and event design.
I strive to make the entire decor planning process of my client's weddings as simplistic and enjoyable as possible. All of my bookings include exclusive rental of my extensive collection of vases, vessels, stands, arbors, backdrops, candles and décor. These pieces are hand selected to harmoniously marry with your floral designs.
Investment & FAQ
All flowers are hand selected for your wedding and every arrangement is custom designed for each client. Because of this, pricing varies by event. Please fill out our inquiry form if you're interested in receiving a custom quote. We love educating clients and guiding them through navigating floral costs and budget expectations through our one-on-one, personal consultations.
On average, my couples invest $7,000-$15,000. However, I am happy to accommodate weddings in almost any budget range, from small and intimate to those that are large and lavish! My general recommendation is that you consider setting aside 15-25% of your overall wedding budget for florals and décor.
The minimum requirement to secure me for wedding floral design services is $5,000.
Because I only take on a select amount of bookings each month, this minimum allows me to take on less bookings and prioritize delivering beautiful designs and attentive customer service to each and every couple who books with me!
Q: How far in advance do you accept bookings?
A: On average, my clients book with me somewhere between 8-16 months prior to their wedding date, however I have some that book me as far as 2 years in advance. It's never too early to reach out to secure me for your date. I do ask that you have your wedding date and venue secured prior to meeting with me so that we can really jump into the details based on the style and location of your venue as well as the season of your wedding.
Q: How do I know if you are available on my wedding date?
A: Please fill out our inquiry form located on this site. Once I receive that filled out form, I will send you an email to confirm availability and discuss further steps.
Q: Am I locked into the designs we choose at the time of booking?
A: Not at all! I always say that wedding planning is a process. Along the way, you're going to make planning decisions that will ultimately reflect back into the floral and décor aspect of your wedding. During our initial consultation, we will discuss an ultimate vision, however this will be adjusted as time progresses. At about 2 months prior to your wedding, we will meet for your design meeting. During that time, we will make final adjustments to your proposal and fine-tune all of your floral designs to coordinate with all of the other wedding details.
Q: Do you have a contract?
A: Yes. I send a copy of my contract when you receive your floral proposal following our initial consultation. This contract protects both me as the vendor and you as the client.
Q: What do you require to book?
A: To secure your wedding date and book with me, I require a signed copy of my contract as well as a non-refundable retainer (amount varies based on booking amount and is listed on the proposal and contract).
Q: Do I have to need to have everything "florals" figured out before coming to you?
A: Absolutely not! While I am here to listen to your preferences and the vision you have, I am also here to collaborate with you and provide expertise. I do not expect you to have an extensive knowledge of flowers my hope is that you are able to come to me confident that I will be able to fill in the gaps where needed to help you complete the vision that you have dreamt up.
Q: Do you "hold" wedding dates for clients who are interested in booking with you?
A: Once we've scheduled our complimentary consultation, I do hold your date for 7 days after you've received your custom floral proposal. This allows you the time to review the design proposal, ask questions and discuss options before making a decision on booking. After the 7 day grace period, your date is released for other potential bookings and is no longer guaranteed to be available. Book before the 7 day time is over to secure me as your wedding florist!
Q: Are there specific flowers that you can/cannot get in and where do you source your flowers from?
A: Seasonality is always a key component with fresh flowers, however you will be surprised at how many flowers I am able to source year 'round. I source my flowers from a variety of places, both locally and overseas. Roses typically come from Ecuador, hydrangea from Miami, some flowers come from Holland, California, Kansas City... You name it! Having these options allows me to source flowers even when they wouldn't be "in season" here locally. This means we can get the freshest blooms from all around the world for your special day.
Q: Are you insured?
A: Yes, I am fully licensed and insured to meet all venue, government and business requirements.
Q: What methods do you offer for consultations and meetings?
A: Our studio is located in the historic downtown Oak Grove, Missouri (25 minutes East of Kansas City), where I host in-person consultations. If you are unable to attend in person or more of the "plan from home" type of couple, I offer consults via Zoom video call as well. I work with many couples from all around the world who are planning a wedding remotely, for whom the virtual consultations are typically a great option.
