What was your dream job growing up?
Exactly what I’m doing! I’ve always been artistic, and knew I wanted to work in a field built on creativity. It’s a dream every week to bring a floral vision to life!
What does a typical wedding day look like for you/the whole team?
It starts with loading up all the flowers and arrangements, then delivery, any design on site that needs to be done, and setting up or arranging of the ceremony and reception floral. Then coming back after the reception to pick up any floral + rentals. Most wedding days start around 8:00am, and end at Midnight! I have wonderful support from my husband and my oldest friend who both help me on most every wedding. It’s always a race against time, weather, heat, or cold so we stay prepared for anything!
How did you get into the floral business?
I have an amazing mentor! My high school art teacher is co-owner of a wedding venue, and I began working with him in 2011. The first thing I ever made was a boutonnière, and I’ve loved wedding floral ever since!
How long have you been in business?
I started Foxglove & Heather in January 2017.
What is your favorite part of a wedding day/event day?
My favorite moment is showing the bride her bouquet! I really try to make sure to capture the personality of each of my brides, so this moment is always so special.
What is your favorite type of floral arrangement to create?
Bridal Bouquets, and big installations like floral rings, or hanging designs- I love the challenge!
What would be your dream event to design for be?
Honestly, I love any wedding where I’ve really gotten to know the bride and groom, and they have a truly unique wedding vision that shows their love and personality. But I love weddings where there are floral touches dripping from almost every space- the more floral, the merrier!
What celebrity would you most like to be hired by to create flower arrangements?
Nicole Kidman- she has such a classic style!
If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
Northern England, in the Lake District. It’s so charming, and quaint!
Thank you again, Heather, for sharing more about what you do with us! We
love your work and are excited to work with you again in the future.
