Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?
Flaire Weddings is modern in our approach to design. We strive to stay current regarding trends and concepts within the wedding industry, and we love to infuse our events with this modern aesthetic. We're also classic in the sense that we work with many brides who are seeking a classic affair, and we ensure that their celebration is timeless, stylish, and breathtaking.
What is your favorite wedding detail you've ever seen or created?
We created a gorgeous "lemonade stand" this past July for a couple who had a modern yellow and gray wedding with rustic touches. We used recycled glass drink dispensers, perched them atop wrought iron stands, and used mason jars with gray striped straws displayed on rustic crates. I love the way it turned out!
What is your favorite store or brand?
Pottery Barn! I love how everything they offer is stylish, quality, and well-designed. Just opening their catalog takes me to my happy place!
What advice do you have for a newly engaged couple?
Focus, focus, focus! There is so much inspiration out there, it's very easy for brides to become overwhelmed. Really try to define your style and try to make your wedding elements feel cohesive. A great planner/designer can help you navigate this process!
What is your favorite thing about weddings?
I love the look on the bride and groom's faces when they first walk into their reception space. That look is priceless.
What qualities do you possess that enable you to work well with brides and grooms?
I am very laid back. Not much fazes me and that enables me to help keep clients calm and stress-free.
What steps do you take to ensure that your clients will have amazing wedding days when working with you?
We draw on our past 6 years of experience to make recommendations throughout the planning process about what works well and what doesn't. We've been able to steer well-meaning clients away from some ideas that just spelled disaster (iPod weddings, for example). :) As far as the actual wedding day itself, we are calmly working in the background to facilitate your wedding day desires. We quietly handle issues as they arise and coordinate with your vendor team to ensure your day is nothing short of amazing!
