My floral journey began in the middle of our vegetable garden, in a little space beside carrots where my husband grew flowers for me during a challenging year with my health. Making arrangements lit a fire in me and quickly became my most loved form of expression. A few healing years later, Rise Floral was born.
I’ve always gravitated towards things textural and wildly romantic, and nature is the best place to find that. I strive to create captivating color stories and movement in my designs by allowing flowers to keep their natural, spontaneous shape.
In addition to sourcing speciality blooms, organic and locally grown flowers are used whenever possible. By cultivating a sustainable lifestyle, I forgo the use of floral foam in my work, as well as other products which are harmful to the environment. After events, leftover flowers are always composted in our garden — the gift that keeps on giving!
While weddings and elopements are my main focus, custom florals are also available for editorial styling and events. Collaborating with like-minded creatives is something I'm very passionate about, so don't hesitate to ask!
One of my favorite things about this work is reflecting a couple’s unique love through floral design. It’s an honor that I’m able to share this craft with you and to play a small part in telling your story. Each piece I create has a piece of my heart in it. _____________________________________________________________________________
