Bloomin' Bouquets

Hello







Photography by Grace Jayne

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.

Paulina + Isaac's moody November wedding incorporated some fantastic floral design elements. First feathers, Isaac rocked a feather bow tie on his big day which inspired Bloomin' to use some dramatic feathers in the table arrangements to tie it all together. Second orchids, beautiful dark pink phal orchids, enough said. Third color, we are huge fans of a bold color scheme. Paulina + Isaac chose dramatic reds, dark pinks, and ivory with a surprise twist of muted blues brought in by blue thistle and brunia. Fabulous florals for a fabulous couple!

Spring is definitely in the air here in Georgia. Everywhere I look I see colorful flowers blooming on branches or popping out from the ground.  All the bright blooms everywhere I can't help but think of Abby + David's colorful outdoor wedding. Abby's bouquet consisted of purple veronica, burgundy dahlias, tulips, and a variety of roses. They had their ceremony outside with an indoor reception to follow. The vibrant colors of the flowers paired beautifully with the french blue and white vases. It was truly a perfect day.

Margaret + Brad celebrated their union back in October at the beautiful Brumby Hall and Gardens in Marietta, Georgia. Margaret's bouquet was a reflection of the garden with blush tone garden roses, drumstick allium, and chocolate cosmos. Despite the rain, the photos turned out lovely.  In fact the rain made the garden all that more lush.

Bundled up on my couch delighting in the beauty of the snow covering the outside world I think about what I'll look to for inspiration in 2018. More appropriately, what will inspire us at Bloomin'. 

Dried Flowers
Towards the end of last year I noticed dried flowers popping up in arrangements, installations, bouquets, boutiques, mantles. Just about everywhere. Two particular florist come to mind when I think dried flowers, Amanda Jewel of Amanda Jewel Floral + Design and Katie of Ponderosa & Thyme. Both ladies incorporate dried product into their designs and the end result is incredible. The dried brings in an element of texture and muted colors hard to achieve with live product. 

Installations 
Installations are nothing new to Bloomin' but we're always up for a new challenge. Last year we conquered some big installs and learned new ways to tackle them. This year we're feeling inspired to try more unique large scale designs that add a special touch to the most special day. 

Mixed Hues
Don't get me wrong here at Bloomin' we LOVE gold accents but you can only do so much with gold votives, ya feel me? Tablescapes with a mix of golds, silvers, ceramics, & glass or some combination of two or three can be stunning. I know what you're thinking, sounds too busy, but if done right it is pure magic! 

At Bloomin' Bouquets we try to make a habit of trying new things. Part of being in the creative industry is about dabbling in the unfamiliar, pushing your creativity to the next level and tapping into the right hemisphere of your brain.

Tori + Carter were married at the beautiful Cathedral of St. Phillip with reception to follow at Summerour Studio. The couple didn't skip a beat when it came to thinking about every little detail for their special day. From the poptails (yes I said POPtails) to live painting to lush flowers and greenery it was truly a dream come true.

November 3rd means there’s only fifty eight days left in 2017! What a crazy awesome year it has been for Bloomin’ Bouquets. Thinking back at 2017 one of our most challenging installations to date was the flower wall we put together for The Letter Magazine back in August. The Letter Magazine, founded by Lauren Taylor, is a bi-annual print publication inspiring everyday women. It is a publication with a lot of heart and a whole lot of class so we were thrilled to take part in the magazines celebration at the amazing Citizen Supply space at Ponce City Market. Our project was to make a flower wall, sounds easy enough right?! Not exactly, the logistics of the wall proved to be a bit more challenging than expected. However, after many hours of trial and error we successfully completed our install and it was fabulous.
