“The flowers were my FAVORITE part. I will never forget them. I was so sad to leave each bouquet-I wanted to just sit with my flower crowns and bouquets for days!”
— Corrina

The Gist

More likely than not this might be your first time ordering wedding flowers, don’t worry we are here to guide you every step of the way! There are ever SO MANY options with flowers so we are so happy to help develop a plan and designs that fit you and your style perfectly. Flowers are an investment for your wedding but they add rich depth and texture to your scene which will then translate in the photos, which is how you’ll revive your memories of the day for years to come!

Emphasis on local blooms and foraged florals

In my process, I use locally sourced blooms and greenery from small farms and my foraging adventures as often as possible to achieve the wild, free-flowing look that I am known for. Depending on season and style of floral designs, I will supplement with florals from other wholesale sources. Because of this non-traditional process and by not using formulated arrangements, I create florals that aren't something that can be replicated easily and will be individual to that wedding. I like to think of it as a sort of time stamp of your wedding day by using the flowers that were growing and blooming that week of your wedding. Also by using local flowers of that season, you will get the freshest best looking florals.

Process

As a floral designer, I tend to go about things a little bit differently than the traditional methods. I've always found that as an artist I work best when I am given a vision to work as the parameter, but with room for artistic freedom to work within that. Usually I have the couple give me a color palette and vision board (usually Pinterest). And I create their wedding flowers to compliment the vision with a creative Fire and Blooms twist on the ideas. We can dream as big as you want, I’m always up for a challenge!

getting started

Shall we dance? If this non-traditional process is appealing to you and excites you, let's talk! If you haven't already, start putting together a vision board to share your ideas. Browse through my galleries and social media to get a feel for the type of floral design I do. Next, fill out a wedding inquiry form on my site. Once we are in touch we can start talking pricing, floral visions and melding my creative process with making your concepts come to life for your wedding day.

These two came from Georgia to tie the knot at Hurricane Ridge. This relaxed elopement starts by the riverside and ends at sunset in the mountains, life doesn’t get much sweeter. They really saw the best of the ONP.

Hiking around 6 miles to get to this view, Karaline and Robert got married in the North Cascades. They even hiked Karaline’s wildflower style bouquet up the mountain! This location is enough to make anyone want to elope.

Weddings

You’ve picked the date, you’ve got your venue and now it’s time to have a gathering with your nearest and dearest! Florals are one of the elements that can really help bring the vision of your wedding to life with the romance, drama and beauty they bring to the party. Each wedding is created custom to fit the needs of each couple.

Justin and bergen

Ever wonder what a florist does for her own wedding? This is an intimate sneak peek into my own wedding florals, including my “love nest”. I utilized dried flowers and plants in my designs to make it easier to do ahead of time. A Sunday picnic in the park to remember!

braden and noelle

What was a field surrounded by a forrest, turned into an etherial wedding for Braden and Noelle. Noelle requested wildflower and garden look so her designs were full of herbs and wildflowers. Their wedding arch is one of my favorite to date.
