The winter months here at Moonset Farm Floral are for ordering seeds, planning the gardens, reorganizing the studio, and connecting with venues and clients. In these months as well, I meet my newest clients. It is during these initial conversations that the personalities of the couples begin to shine through and the excitement of showcasing the individuality of the couples through flowers and botanicals blossoms.
With the arrival of spring, the wedding season bursts forth. Hannah, my intrepid part time assistant, seems to be as happy to be back in the studio as I am.
Our first wedding this year was a study in pink. The soft cherry blossoms, the national flower of Japan, are an explosion of small, delicate pink flowers. In China, cherry blossoms signify love and the female mystique of beauty, strength, and sexuality. Pink roses, the traditional token of admiration and appreciation as well as hydrangeas hold a wide range of meaning from heartfelt emotion, to gratitude, to feminine vitality. All in all, pink flowers are a beautiful representation of feelings surrounding that special day.
The shop is perfumed and occasionally littered with all the flowers of the wedding season. I am so looking forward to reconnecting with each couple as their big day arrives; the expression on a brides face when she sees her vision fully realized for the first time, the excitement of the wedding party, and the sheer joy of helping couples achieve all that they’d hoped for on their special day.
