Cindy and Joel approached Floral Designs by Christa Rose for floral guidance. After careful consideration of their vision and their venue, they decided upon gorgeous garden roses, peonies, freesia and bupleurum. As a personal touch, Cindy and Joel started growing succulents at home and gave them to Christa to use in the bridesmaid bouquets.

If you are in the process of selecting a floral designer, know that a good designer does not just create centerpieces or bouquets; he or she will get an understanding of your overall vision and take into consideration every detail of your wedding before selecting the design of the wedding flowers. A good working relationship is very important when it comes to creativity and planning so be sure you feel comfortable with whomever you choose. Cindy worked closely with Floral Designs by Christa Rose to ensure that her vision of a modern romance Smog Shoppe wedding became a reality.

A Tip from Floral Designs by Christa Rose:  Remember that you are not only working with a floral designer, but you are working with Mother Nature. Being flexible and open to alternative flower choices is always the best attitude to have when working with flowers. In the early planning stages, Cindy and Joel were particular in their color and flower selections. They worked with Floral Designs by Christa Rose to choose flowers and colors that were typically available on their wedding date and yet, Mother Nature had the final say. As the wedding day approached, Floral Designs by Christa Rose received word that a few of the items they had ordered would not be ready in time due to severe weather conditions. Cindy and Joel had a great attitude and allowed Floral Designs by Christa Rose to suggest a few substitutes that worked within their original vision. When selecting a floral designer, it is imperative to feel confident with him/her and to trust them completely in case situations like this occur.
