Each project takes a minimum of 4 months from start to finish to allow time for the flowers to cure and to work through the creative design process. I create each art piece using the flowers from your bouquet that look the best, have retained their color, and have interesting textures and shapes. In a sense, I let the flowers tell me what to do. I find that my most sought- after preservation designs are from the fresh bouquets that I create myself for your wedding. All of my artwork is mounted to glass or worked into dried wreaths depending on the blooms.
If your event took place outside of Northern Colorado, I will send you a shipping kit with everything you need to get your flowers safely to me within 24-48 hours after your wedding. I’ve also created a video with complete Shipping Instructions. I can received shipped bouquets from anywhere in the continental United States.
If you’re within range of North Denver, I am happy to arrange a courier service to pick up your bouquet and deliver it to my studio. I use a Longmont-based courier service who will come to you, pick up your flowers and drive them to my north Fort Collins/Waverley studio for $20 per hour. You can also feel free to schedule a time to drop off your bouquet yourself at my studio.
A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to guarantee your spot on my botanical collage calendar.
