A few weeks ago I begin spending a couple of hours every weekend on a small project for my friend Kerim, the owner of My Wedding Blooms, a boutique wedding floral provider. Every wedding season, Kerim builds one sample centerpiece for each of his clients so that they can see, feel and even smell the centerpieces that will eventually be used at their wedding. This gives brides and grooms a great opportunity to change anything they don’t like or even add more of things they do. Just in the several hours total that I spent at these sample days, I saw how beneficial it was for a couple to see their actual centerpiece before their wedding day. A couple of them even changed the look of their piece altogether by the time they left! It’s nice that Kerim’s clients are able to look to the rest of his work for inspiration.
But, I digress. The reason I was there was to photograph all of the sample centerpieces so that I could put an album together for Kerim to show potential clients. Now, future brides and grooms will have a ton of inspiration in one little book and Kerim will be able to show off all of his masterpieces quickly and easily!
I don’t know a whole lot about flowers but I do know that the pieces Kerim and his staff create are amazing. From the simple and elegant to the extravagant and divine, I saw it all over the course of my time there. Here are is just a very small sampling of my favorites:
