Hello lovelies! Today Michael + I are loading our apartment into a moving van and heading to Charleston. While we're doing this, my beautiful friend Jenna of Gold + Bloom is here to share a bit about her floral design business. Jenna creates unique, whimsical floral arrangements and caters to the personality of the people she creates them for. She is a joy to work with and her warm personality really puts people at ease. I hope you enjoy learning more about her company! :) Thanks for sharing, Jenna! xoxo, Stacia
Tell us a little bit about Gold + Bloom!
Gold & Bloom creates unique, natural, and artistic floral designs for weddings and events. I started this business with a passion for flowers and for building beautiful designs to reflect the personality and heart behind each event. This passion continues to grow each and every day! The more I play with flowers and design for events, the more I fall in love with this job of mine. Gold & Bloom is for the bride who wants their wedding to be romantic, beautiful, and adorned with flowers that reflect their personality.
What is Your favorite kind of bride to work with?
My favorite kind of bride to work with is one is not afraid to take risks, and who desires to have a wedding that truly reflects her unique personality. Part of my job is to get to know her, their special story, and their style in order to create stunning designs just for them. So, a bride that is open and easy to communicate with is key.
What ignited your passion for flowers? How do you feel when you work with them?
My passion for flowers started when I was young, but I didn't recognize it until I was well out of college. I've always been drawn to flowers, learning the different kinds, and making pretty arrangements when I could. It wasn't until a few years ago that my passion for flowers grew into something more than just a "like". When I play around with flowers and create designs, I feel excited and so full of joy. Similar to paintings, no design is ever the same as the one before. This makes each piece so dear to my heart!
Tell us about a daily habit or ritual that you can't do without!
I definitely can't do without coffee in the morning! Business-wise, lately I've been spending a little bit of each day scouring the internet for fun vases for events. You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to find unique vases that aren't simply glass.
What is an item on your business bucket list? Do you have anything special coming up soon?
One big thing on my business bucket list (and personal bucket list as well) is to attend a big floral workshop. These are very expensive, so I have a lot of saving up to do! As for events that are coming up, I have a bright and colorful wedding in Athens, GA that I am really looking forward to. I can't wait to get my hands on the flowers!
Do you have any encouraging words to share with brides in the middle of planning their wedding?
Enjoy this time that you are in, because it will go by so quickly! These are the last few months before you are married, so make sure you take some time for yourself, sweet dates with your fiance, and relax. Don't be afraid to ask for help with planning, designs, and big decisions.
How can brides get in touch with you if they want to hire you?
