The wonderful Helena Parker of Divine Events featured a Q&A with me on her blog earlier this week.
Here is a tid bit of the post but to see the entire thing you'll have to visit her here...
"Sally is the owner and lead designer at Exqusite Blooms. Here is a little Q&A I did with her.
What attracted you to the floral business? Since I was a little girl, I have just always loved flowers. I can remember my mom buying me a little book of flower meanings and thinking that “when I grow up, I am going to make people bouquets of flowers that have these hidden messages through the flowers”. Flowers have always been a part of me and made me happy so in a way, I feel like being a florist was what I was always meant to be.
What is your favorite part of doing wedding flowers? Good question and so many answers come to mind but I think that my very favorite part of doing wedding flowers is the moment I hand a bride her bouquet. I try to make it a point, if possible, to personally deliver the bridal bouquet to all my brides. I love that moment when I hand it to her and she is standing there looking beautiful on her wedding day in her gorgeous dress, the bouquet just adds that final “bridal” touch and it such a special moment to be a part of. Sometimes I get teary eyed and have to turn around for fear of looking like a big dork."
I had such a fun time answering these questions and I hope to continue to work with Helena for a long time!
