Tid bits from Palm Springs!

We made it! Palm Springs…get ready for Jackie and Chelsie

 

Our week in Palm Springs was nothing short of an absolute BLAST! We drove all the way down on Sunday and started class up on Monday. Working alongside and meeting with so many amazing talents… planners, stylists, designers, and photographers alike!

Kate Holt is the awesome talent behind Flowerwild designs out of Los Angeles. They style such gorgeous, organic looks, they just oooze style! If you have never seen her work for yourself, click the link and be amazed! www.flowerwild.coms We also love all her cool photos on instagram and how she is always with her cutie of a daughter, Alice. We love mother-daughter teams!

Luckily, we were shacked up at the swanky hotel Ace…. WOW, I finally know what it feels like to wake up in an Urban Outfitters catalogue! So cool.

But, I swear, we were there on business… We had discussions about the bridal industry and how it is constantly evolving, and more importantly, how to keep up with those changes. One thing that really stuck with me was hearing Kate tell us that Flowers are a luxury. I couldn’t agree more.

They are so much more than just flowers. They are these tiny delicate little living things, they have to be planted, taken care of, they grow, they are harvested, packed shipped, perhaps they are shipped multiple times depending on how local they are… the bottom line is, you are not just paying for grocery store flowers, the service we provide is so so much more.

Our main goal is to get personal. We want to know our clients, we want to get an inside look at their story, who they are as individuals and as a couple as well. We strive to create an emotion for your day, a wedding is a very personal thing. The decor should follow suit. It not only gives you a better final product, but it makes our job more interesting, everyone has their story to tell, our job is to embody that story and share it with your guests. Afterall, this IS the most important day of your life 🙂

I made sure to give you some fun little glimpses into our week with Flowerwild in the desert, more to follow on our shoot and working with the uber cool photog…Jose Villa!

Thanks for reading,

Chels
