This week’s Vendor of the Week is one of my absolute favorite types of vendors… a floral designer! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tampa Bay floral designer FH Weddings & Events several times, and they are just absolutely amazing. I’m honored to be able to have them here on ELD! Seriously- anything that you can dream up, they can make happen… and make it happen gorgeously too!
Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?
As a designer, I feel that I can be considered Modern, Vintage, Classic and Eclectic. I have poured myself into each style of wedding and have always found myself creating new and original ideas for each style. However, I do love Vintage styles. I have always loved being able to step back in time and designing with décor and flowers that bring a piece of the past into today.
What is your favorite wedding detail you’ve ever seen or created?
We recently did a wedding and I had fun creating a focal point for the ceremony and above guest tables. For the ceremony we created a two post Chuppah, had sheer fabric and crystals curtain curtained back on each side. The focal point was the large silver frame hanging in the middle of the chuppah. We put the frame upside down and designed flowers on opposite corners with large crystals hanging down. The same frame was also used over guest tables, floating.
What is your favorite store or brand?
I love “The Buckle”. I love a pair of comfy jeans and a T-shirt.
What is your favorite thing about weddings?
My favorite part is seeing the whole day come together. All the vendors working together to make the bride and grooms vision a reality, then seeing the excitement of their faces as they see everything for the first time.
What qualities do you possess that enable you to work well with brides and grooms?
I think one of my best qualities is my ability to listen. By listening to a couple’s vision I can create the flowers, designs and the décor. These concepts define their personalities and for the first time it is the personality of both of them as one.
What steps do you take to ensure that your clients will have amazing wedding days when working with you?
By listening to the bride and grooms vision of what they want for their wedding day will ensure a perfect wedding day. Another step is absolute organization. Our team begins planning and designing the day a bride signs with us. We create inspiration presentations, since most brides are more “visual”, and I personally meet with the bride three times. We always do a venue walk thru to make sure everything is covered and this also helps our brides feel comfortable with us.
FH Weddings‘ designs are gorgeous, don’t you think? You absolutely must go check out more of their work in their ELV gallery and on their website! And brides, if you’re in the Tampa area- you MUST call FH Weddings! :)
