Are you available for my wedding date?
Due to the time, care + attention we place into each and every artwork, we are only able to accept a limited number of bouquets into our studio. Reservations are currently open for 2021 and we always recommend reserving as soon as possible to ensure your bouquet’s spot with us!
Do you accept bouquets from outside of the United States?
Unfortunately, due to regulations surrounding the shipment of fresh florals between borders, we are not able to accept bouquet’s from outside of the U.S. at this time.
If you are from Hawaii (or are getting married in Hawaii), please contact us directly for more information.
How can I keep my bouquet in best condition throughout my wedding day and prior to sending it to your studio?
The health and happiness of your blooms is of utmost importance to our preservation process! This is why we will provide you with bouquet safety + care recommendations before your big day. These tips and tricks will help keep your bouquet looking and feelings it’s very best during and immediately after your “I Do’s.”
P.S. Choosing a reputable floral designer who sources quality blooms is important, as they are the foundation of the art that we create.
Will my bouquet be safe during transit to your studio?
We know the thought of packing your special florals up and sending them off can be a little scary! We will walk you through it to put you at ease.
Prior to your wedding, you will receive an email from us with simple, step-by-step instructions on how to safely pack and send your wedding bouquet to our studio using a provided pre-paid shipping label, 24-48 hours after your wedding day.
For peace of mind, you can even watch your tracking number as your bouquet travels to us until it reaches our studio and delivery has been confirmed!
Are there any flowers you can't preserve?
As Artists, we are always up for a fun floral challenge, but there *are* certain florals that do not preserve as well as others.
These include calla lilies, king protea and high moisture, tropical flowers. For instance, calla lilies are prone to drastic color change and tropical florals can often change texture to a significant degree once preserved.
Anemones are often a fan favorite (understandably), but they are one of the most sensitive flowers to ship. We are unable to preserve plants (as opposed to flowers) so we do recommend removing any plants (like succulents) from your bouquet and planting them at home to watch grow!
We are firm believers that Mother Nature does it best, which is why we do our very best to honor the natural changes and variations that come along with floral preservation, without using any additives, dyes, or chemicals to the floral prep process.
Will you use all of my bouquet in my artwork(s)?
When your bouquet reaches our studio, every single flower, stem and petal is carefully evaluated, taking into consideration the external factors that affect each bloom such as wedding day wear, travel conditions, their original quality from your florist and even the farms that they were sourced from! It is a tedious process, but one that we treasure.
Our Botanical Artists are highly selective and leave absolutely no petal unturned in your bouquets assessment upon arrival. We choose only the most beautiful and healthy blooms available from your bouquet after the above factors are taken into consideration.
Will my preserved flowers look identical to how they did on my wedding day?
Bouquet preservation is both a delicate art and science. Each and every bouquet goes through a transformation process! Take a peek here to learn all about this.
How should I display my art once complete?
We recommend displaying your art somewhere in your home where you can enjoy it daily. We think that a shelf, side table, desk or credenza make the perfect location (especially when paired with your favorite wedding photo). Our “For the Bride” artwork is self-standing, which makes it simple to choose the perfect location for display!
How do I take care of my art?
Although each artwork is quite durable, they should be treated gently and with care. Keeping your artwork beautiful is simple. Use a lintless cloth (sunglass cloth) to keep it looking its very best! Please avoid bright windows and direct sunlight on your artwork for optimal protection.
Will my art change in appearance over time?
Your completed artwork will be translucent, for optimal viewing of your three dimensional flowers. The preservation medium that we use for our artworks is clear and, with time, will take on an amber tint that we think provides a beautiful, vintage-like glow to these heirloom artworks. "Ambering" is a natural process of our preservation medium with age. However, you can rest assured in the fact that this tint change does not impact the integrity and health of your preserved florals inside.
