It's finally finished! Well...in that way that I will forever be adding and editing it...but its finished! Our site is live.
It's been a long road and I seriously cannot thank Brandy Curry, Nicole McDonald and Jared Richard enough for standing by me while I questioned everything. The site, websites in general, our wedding industry, flowers....
The hardest part of this whole thing is in reality I don't love websites. Maybe?
In the end we made one and I am proud of it. It's simple and showcases only a few of our weddings. None of our styled shoots since what I really want to showcase is our event work.
I feel as wedding florists we need to start setting a precedent that we do work that represents the couple, their venue, and their story. I think in this age of pinterest and instagram so often people think they need to come into a design meeting, ideas flushed out and with a pin board of hundreds of images. The industry will become (or maybe it is?) to stifled if we allow for that to occur.
Also, I like styled shoots...ish. But at this point what sets us apart from up and coming florists is our experience. It takes a special kind of florist to do events. It's hard work, stressful, and I adore it.
We are creatives. We love flowers. I want to come up with ideas with our couples, inside their particular wedding. I don't want to work against images of weddings that already occurred and have made it up on the blogs or pinterest. I feel we have the space to approach design in a more authentic way.
