Most of these questions are regarding custom event pieces. If this page doesn’t address the questions you have, send me an email and we can chat details.

Because every project is different, the quoted price depends on a number of factors. Pricing for most projects starts at $525 and varies based on frame size and style. Payment plans are automatically applied to each project at no additional cost unless you communicate that you’d prefer to pay in full. The financial accessibility of my services is super important to me, so I’m always flexible on payment dates and the number of installments in your payment plan.

Of course! I’ve done all kinds of projects. Baby showers, memorials, even special mother’s day requests using flowers from a client’s Mom’s garden.

Since the long-term safety of your flowers is my top priority, I only offer pressing and framing. Resin can often cloud or turn yellow without proper care, and shadow boxes tend to offer little support for the weight of each bloom. By pressing and framing the flowers, each bloom is supported with preservation-quality adhesive on the back side, and the display glass on the front.

Dried bouquets can’t be pressed because once they’re aired out, the blooms will crumble under pressure. However, you can ask your florist for a re-creation of your bouquet on a smaller scale, and I can press that. Two upsides here: your spouse can make this an anniversary gift (!!!~HINT~!!!) and the flowers will be super fresh for pressing.

When you fill out a custom inquiry form, I’ll email you to talk about what you’re looking for and make sure we’re a good fit for your needs. I’ll then send a proposal and contract via email and you can look it over before submitting payment online.

Pressing flowers is no fast feat. A project can take anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks depending on the types of flowers in your bouquet and the type of frame you select since everything in this process is handmade. The wait is always worth it. Trust.

It’s best to reserve a slot as soon as you know this is something you’d like. I recommend booking around the same time you book your florist. Spring and fall are typically the busiest seasons for weddings so keep that in mind when considering this kind of service (or any wedding vendor service, for that matter–pro tip).However, I do still encourage you to reach out last minute. If I’m not available, I may be able to point you in the direction of another vendor who can help you out.

I do! I provide my distance clients with packaging instructions for shipping your bouquet to me from anywhere in the United States. All you have to do is pack your flowers up the following day and overnight them to my studio. I’ll make sure you have all the trade secrets for keeping your bouquet as fresh as possible during transit.
