From Sketch to Reality, Sacramento Wedding Flowers



When I am meeting with a client, sometimes it can be difficult to illustrate the designs and the flowers I am envisioning for their event.  I find myself saying things like, “Garden style roses would lend a bit of a formal feeling to the yarrow, feverfew, rosemary and other herbs in your bouquet.”  Often times my flower-rants are met with confused glances. To better communicate with my clients,  I realized that I needed to sketch the arrangements floating around in my mind’s eye.


Alecia wanted a bridal bouquet of bright and exuberant blooms focusing on the gorgeous orange dahlia.  I think the reality of her bouquet far out shone my rudimentary sketch.

Alecia left us this Yelp review:

“Shannon made my wedding bouquet, the boutonnieres, the corsages for family members, and a special flower ring for a dear friend of mine. I was on a tight budget and Shannon totally worked with what I could spend.  I was thrilled with what she created! I still get compliments on how beautiful my bouquet was.  Also the flowers dried pretty well too, so I’ll always have my wedding bouquet displayed in our guest room:) Shannon is a great listener, but also full of ideas too.  I would definitely recommend using Shannon for your wedding flowers!  She’s worth every penny!”

Alecia and her husband, Josh are expecting the birth of their baby girl any minute now!  Congratulations you two and thanks Alecia for being so awesome!
