and you and what
flowers teach us.
Flowers. I feel myself take a breath and rest in an overwhelmed stillness whenever I even attempt to describe them. They are God’s flourish on the top of this cake of a world. I know they are an integral part in sustaining life but they just seem they unnecessarily beautiful. I gape to see such lavish beauty thrown into every nook and cranny of of the world just for the glory of it! Now that’s flourishing.
I strive to create arrangements that emanate this beauty of nature and to celebrate marriage as it deserves- with flowers!
I want to flourish. Everyone does, right? For me this means doing a job I love, creating, being healthy and loving my family well. It is my greatest hope that my brides flourish on their wedding day.
With Flourish specializes in floral arrangements intentionally designed with our sweet couples in mind.
One of my very favorite stories
ABOUT WITH FLOURISH
One time I dropped bouquets off at a brides home. As I was turning to leave I heard the bride call my name. As she got closer I realized she was crying.
"I just wanted to tell you how incredibly thankful I am." She said. "This bouquet is everything that I dreamed about holding as I walked down the aisle to meet my husband.” She went on to talk about the how it reminded of her childhood home and family members who passed away. By the time she left I was crying too.
I think about this interaction every time I make a bridal bouquet. It embodies everything I hope for my business. Namely it is my hope and prayer that my couples will feel honored and supported and beautiful on their wedding that; that they will be given all they need the bride and her and her fiance’s wedding day and their marriage after will FLOURISH.
