We asked Lauren a few questions about what she loves about floral design and creating some of the beautiful pieces for our #BRIKbrides!

 

 

 

Tell us a little about how you got started in this industry.

Kind of a funny story, when I was a freshman in high school I was assigned to a floral design class as an art elective. I had initially signed up for an improv class, so I switched shortly after (I grew up in Seattle, they had way better choices for art classes). But that accidental floral class definitely planted a seed in me. I fumbled around different art forms after high school. I pursued theater, worked as a makeup artist for a long time, and was even in a punk rock marching band for a bit. Nothing felt right, nor did I feel like any of these platforms were something I could pursue long term, and in my mind I kept coming back to that accidental floral class. So, 6 years ago, I got a job as a floral sales consultant and the rest is history!  Everything really does happen for a reason.

How would you describe your style of floral design?

I would say my style is “Romantic and Rebellious” I stray away from anything too tight or traditional. I love texture and the unexpected. Whether it be a bold contrasting color, or a cool funky bloom. I just love the way it looks intermixed with classic, romantic stems. Sometimes when I get an order in, I have this moment where I say, ‘What was I thinking?’  But then I start designing and its like, ‘DUH, This is rad, you knew what you were doing all along.’

What makes you passionate about flowers?

How much time do you have? I think the most amazing thing to me, is the way every bloom is unique and special in its own way. When I am designing, I spend a little time with every stem, and nature still surprises me. The way a peony will fade into the perfect shade, how roses open, or even how the smell of a certain bloom will take me back to so many different memories. Not to mention the endless amount of flower varieties out there. You are never done learning in this industry and I love that. It keeps me hungry.

What would you say sets you a part from other florists?

I definitely pride myself in the connections I make with my clients. I try to create a unique bond and really get a feel for who they are as a couple, so that I can take their vision and really bring it to life. For me it’s all about creating THEIR space, and making a beautiful memory for them and their loved ones to hold on to forever.

Describe your ideal Client.

Collaboration is my favorite word. I LOVE working with a couple and creating something totally new together. It’s all about creating a story specific to you. Relationships are definitely built throughout the floral planning process. I love when we can bounce ideas off of each other and really come up with something unique. It makes the floral and decor such a huge expression of who they are.

What is your favorite part about working a wedding at BRIK?

I love that Brik is such a beautiful blank canvas. I have done 3 weddings there already, and have more in the fall, all SOOOO different from each other. There is so much room for creativity and I love that I can approach the space in a different way each time. There is no pressure to over do it, because the venue is so beautiful on its own, even minimal designs are stunning and make a huge statement. The possibilities there are endless.

Do you have a favorite memory of a BRIK couple’s wedding?

Absolutely. I got to attend the wedding of Olivia & Barish (see photo below) and got to fully immerse myself in the wedding. Seeing my florals in the setting I intended them for was so, so special to me. I was weeping like a baby during the ceremony. Creating a romantic space for people to vow themselves to each other in is my favorite part of every wedding I do. So intimate and emotional, I always feel so honored to be apart of it.

What do brides/grooms need to know when choosing the right florist for their wedding?

I think style and vision compatibility is key. While we are all trained and capable of executing all styles, we are also all artists, and just like artists we all specialize in a certain genre of floral design. Find a florist that vibes with you, and you can build off of each other to create something magical and bespoke to you.

What do you wish brides/grooms knew about floral decor?

Part of what makes flowers so amazing to me is not one is alike. It has a raw and unpredictable nature; and for that reason, you can never get a true copy of something else. I can create a design, inspired and cohesive to another, but you can never really mimic a design exactly, I think there is something really beautiful about that. Keep it OG, y’all!

Also, SPLURGE ON YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER! It’s the only thing you have forever and it makes all the difference. You can spend all your money on flowers and still have poor quality flower photos, but a good photographer can make any florals look good.

 

 

 

Thanks You, Lauren!! We can’t wait to work with you again soon!
