We're about to head into wedding season so before we hardly have time to think we wanted to take a moment to say hello and reintroduce ourselves. Bloomin' Bouquets opened their doors in 2010 as a fun side hustle for two friends who offered to do the flowers for a friend's wedding. Little did they know, it would grow into a legitimate business that would reach way beyond a side hustle. Over the years Bloomin' has been home to a handful of very talented individuals but today there are three ladies who make it all happen.
Many of you probably know Sarah Provow, everyone does. Sarah is one of the OG founders of Bloomin' Bouquets and the boss lady in charge. She many times is the first point of contact for our brides and their family and fondly continues a relationship with them up until their wedding day and many times beyond. She has an amazing eye for color palates and can tell what flowers are "your flowers" in the first five minutes of talking to you. When Sarah isn't working, which is rare, you can find her hanging out with her family and friends or napping on a porch swing somewhere.
Jacqueline Foresta, lead designer at Bloomin' Bouquets, has been a part of the team since 2015. Her background in Public Relations & Events is what led her to Bloomin'. With little professional design experience when she first started she admittedly watched her peers (and a lot of YouTube videos) create beautiful arrangements and quickly picked up her own design style. She loves having fun with her arrangements and trying out new tricks of the trade. She feels so lucky to blend business and passion when she comes to work at Bloomin'. When Jacqueline isn't designing you can find her chilling at a concert or playing in the garden.
Genevieve Colangelo is the newest member of Bloomin' Bouquets but don't let her new employee status fool you. She is a fierce designer with a passion for flowers. Before Bloomin' Gen worked at another Atlanta floral studio where she gained extensive design and customer relations experience with some major corporate clients. Switching gears, Gen is now taking on the world of weddings and we feel so lucky to have her as part of the team. When Gen isn't at the studio you can find her at a sporting event with her hubby to be or hanging out with her kitty, Bely Mishka.
