  • We recently did a wedding dress photo shoot for one of our Sacramento industry partners, Bella Donna Bridal Salon. We had 5 models, 7 dresses, a fabulous wood-grain backdrop from Drop It Modern, Jen's great ideas, her camera and an amazing, inspired Sacramento florist, Suzanne of Garden of Weedon Designs.

    Jen was inspired by the new Drop It Modern backdrop and ordered it immediately knowing we had this dress shoot coming up. We then contacted Suzanne at Garden of Weedon to see if she was available to help out with flowers and such to cover up the poles and stands of the backdrop. Lucky for us, Suzanne agreed to help and jumped in with both feet and her great creativity!

    Here's what she had to say about the project and her beautiful design:
    "When I saw the backdrop I immediately thought of woodsy elements, the Fall season, flowers in yellows, oranges, reds. Colors that would stand out against the brown backdrop and give a warm feeling of Fall. From the mossy branches to the wooden boxes I wanted all very natural elements. Sunflowers, burgundy upright amaranthus, yellow yarrow tansy, curly willow branches, kale, and lots of moss to go along with the mossy branches were used in each design piece. One of my favorite aspects was being able to use a seasonal vine of hops garland. I loved the idea of transcending the space of each design with such a fun element that created quite a commotion of interest. I was so excited that The Memory Journalist were going to capture these elements in their best light."

  • When Jen and I met with Suzanne for the first time (she came highly recommended from our good friends at Catrina Maria Designs), we could tell she "got" us and our vision right away. Our meeting lasted all of 10 minutes. That's how quickly she was able to express her vision and we just as quickly agreed to her ideas. She put together exactly what we had in mind and the design came together amazingly well. She came out the day of the shoot and set it up even though she had a huge wedding the next day. We could not have been more pleased with Suzanne, her creativity and diligence and her amazing creation. Isn't it gorgeous!!!!!!!

  • I stole the below adorable photo of Suzanne off the Garden of Weedon Designs website. Be sure to check out their website to learn more about Garden of Weedon Designs. We interviewed Suzanne to get to know her a little better and here is what we learned...

    How long have you been a floral designer and what made you choose this career? 13 years. I worked in a floral shop the last 3 years in college. I was not happy in the job I chose after college so I sucked it up at minimum wage with a bachelor's degree and I couldn't get myself out of the floral design world. I fell in love with wedding design!

    What is your favorite wedding element or moment? I love everything about it. The meetings with clients, the calculated process of the budget and the creative process of developing the design and creating menus. And, my favorite is the final product when I hand the bride her bouquet and she smiles really big :)

    What's the most fun thing you have done with your family lately? My daughter is at a really fun age and simply going to apple hill last week was tons of fun. We ordered apple pie at one farm and a caramel apple at another. The weather was cold so we got warm drinks for the drive home. I just enjoyed allowing myself the time off and being a mom and wife...and pigging out. :o)

    What do you think is the biggest thing that sets Garden of Weedon apart from other wedding florists? I'm not in meetings with other wedding florists and I do think there are some fabulous wedding florists in this area. I think my strong points are being versatile, listening to my clients needs and not giving them what I think they should have. I would not want to push my personal taste onto them if it wasn't their personality. I also feel like I can help keep people calm when they are feeling stressed or anxious. When something happens on the day of that's not expected, I say "stay calm and move on."

    Thanks, Suzanne!
