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 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 Shipping Instructions.
If you’re within range of Denver, I am happy to arrange a courier service to pick up your bouquet and deliver it to my studio, for a fee. You can also feel free to schedule a time to drop off your bouquet at my private Fort Collins studio.
A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to guarantee your spot on my botanical collage calendar.
