How it works

How It Works

I book a limited number of weddings and events each season so I can provide personalized focus to each client. Those I work with consistently tell me I perceive their vision extremely well. My approach is different from that of a conventional florist in the following ways:

Exceptionally selective sourcing

When sourcing natural material, I look first to my own garden and locally grown or foraged items, then to American specialty farms. If it's necessary to buy a specific variety through a wholesaler, I take care to find out about the growing location/situation and carbon footprint.

Alliance with other floral designers

In order to support my clients’ needs, I often work in cooperation with two other professionals:

  • My sister, Kirsten Bosnak. Her farm and studio, Blue Morning Glory, is just outside Lawrence, Kansas, and provides me with a first-choice source of locally grown flowers and foliage. She offers farm tours, workshops, holiday pop-up shops and a bouquet subscription service. We work together on weddings and other projects. 
  • My friend and fellow designer, Anna Marinello, owner of Anna Elizabeth Floral. She often lends her artistic skill for help with larger weddings.

Ongoing communication and personal attention

Don't hesitate to contact me during the weeks leading up to your special day. We'll discuss any adjustments needed, and you can be assured the final result will be wonderful.


Pricing

Every event is unique in its design, and the price of flowers is affected by weather, availability and the cost of shipping for any material we need to order. While I have taken on projects that vary widely in cost, the majority of my wedding clients have a floral budget of $1,500-$3,000. Working together, we can carefully consider your ideas, priorities and options to formulate a beautiful plan that fits your budget.
