I am constantly inspired by the work of wedding professionals. Their talent, passion and sheer joy for what they do is always so evident in the beautiful creations they produce. Today, I want to take a moment to share the incredible work of one of my absolute Insta-faves, the lovely Sarah Min of DeLight Floral Design. Every single time I see Sarah’s work, I find myself in complete awe of the unique way in which she combines the prettiest of blooms to create the most charming bouquets and centerpieces. You can tell she pours a whole lot of love into each one of her designs.
Being a big fan of Sarah’s work, I was over the moon excited when she graciously agreed to share a little bit about her creative process and what she loves about working with wedding clients. Without further ado, a DeLight-ful little Q & A that I hope you will enjoy!
CAN YOU GIVE US A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS? WHAT GOES INTO WORKING WITH YOUR CLIENTS TO CREATE THE PERFECT DESIGN FOR THEIR EVENT?
SM: Before I do anything, I have to get to know my brides and what their style is. As a designer, it is essential for me to listen to my clients and give them what they want. Even after one conversation with them, I can get a sense of their personality (individually and as a couple) and gauge what they like and dislike. After the groundwork is all laid out, the most important thing is choosing the right colour palette. Then I select the flowers that best reflect their style and overall wedding concept in the hopes of creating the wedding of their dreams.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT WORKING WITH WEDDING CLIENTS SPECIFICALLY?
SM: As a creative designer, the best feeling is when people really love your designs! It is especially rewarding coming from brides because you know that most of them have been dreaming of this day since they were young. So when a bride comes into a meeting set on a concept or theme then changes her mind after seeing my designs, I know that I am doing a good job with my work.
AS TEMPERATURES DROP, WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE FLOWERS TO WORK WITH AS WE TRANSITION INTO COOLER WEATHER?
SM: I actually love the floral scene in the winter! Think Chronicles of Narnia – the silvers, the shiny, the faux flowers, the pine cones! It is just as nice as fresh spring florals.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE FAVORITE FLOWERS TO HAVE IN YOUR HOME?
SM: Garden roses, hydrangeas, and peonies. They all have longevity and a wonderful aroma. And not to mention, they are fan favourites.
AND JUST FOR FUN…WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING MOVIE?
SM: The Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez. Typical, I know, but J. Lo really played that role with such poise and class – the kind of professional aura that every wedding planner wants to embody. It was always my dream to be in the events/wedding industry and I am so thankful that it has actually come true!
Thank you SO much Sarah for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your love of blooms with us!
