What’s your area of expertise?

Reflower Project is a repurposing wedding flower service.

First job you ever landed

The first wedding flower repurposing we did was SO exciting and fun! My assistant and I arrived at the wedding venue after the wedding had finished that night and you could still feel the excitement in the air. We were so overwhelmed by the gorgeous flowers and how helpful the wedding coordinator was with getting the flowers all ready for us to pack in our totes. The energy after the wedding is such a sweet, lovely feeling and I truly feel this energy passes into the flowers. From the meticulous work and loving care the florist puts into designing the beautiful arrangements to the love and energy the generous couple send the flowers away with. This “flower power” is passed on the the recipients at the non-profits (nursing homes, women’s shelters, cancer support centers, homeless shelters, etc) who are beyond thrilled to receive the beautiful blooms. We enjoyed the experience so much that we have continued on our mission ever since.

What brought you to the wedding industry?

The sheer love of beautiful flowers and how they can continue to bring happiness to others even after a wedding is over.

A lesson you’ve learned the hard way in the wedding industry

 I really did not like to think of the flowers being thrown away after a wedding and this is part of the reason I wanted to start the Reflower Project.

Favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon

Picking up flowers from a wedding the night before is certainly a fun Sunday afternoon. Other activities I enjoy are going for walks with my husband and daughters, sailing in the summertime, visiting farms, and reading when I can.

Best piece of advice to someone new to the industry

Appreciate the creativity and commitment of the all the different wedding vendors.

Best piece of planning advice to a new bride

Just breathe. Try to enjoy the planning as much as possible because it is so fun. From cake tasting to picking out the perfect dress and all the details that make the wedding unique to you.

Some words you live by

Best tip for balancing work + home life

Meditation

Best moment of your career

The delivery of the flowers is such a rewarding experience. When the people at these centers ask where the flowers came from they are delighted to here that a couple who just got married were kind enough to share the joy with them. One woman said “I feel like I’m at a fancy hotel and not at a shelter.” This quote is exactly what our aim is, to allow others for a moment to forget their trouble and worries and just be in the moment of delight of the beautiful joy of flowers. We are so thankful for the outpouring of support from everyone involved in this project, from the couples who are kind enough to donate, to the florists and event planners and of course the recipients who welcome the flowers into their centers.

Guilty pleasures

Impossible burger at Wahlburgers, watching “This is Us” and of course chocolate.

What’s your favorite aesthetic? 

shabby chic

Intimate or Par-tay? What size wedding do you recommend and why?

It all depends on whatever you find more fun for you. I think the best part of a wedding is what is best for you. Of course delicious food, pretty flowers, great music make for a awesome wedding no matter what size it is.

What’s the first thing a newly engaged couple should do? 

After enjoying a fun honeymoon of course is to plan on dedicating some time to give back to your community. Whether it is volunteering at a local YMCA, food pantry, nursing home visiting residents or packing care packs for soldiers together, any of these will bring you both so much joy that money could never.
