Initial contact

  • You will fill out the contact form on our website here to begin the booking process.
  • We will review the form to be sure we are available for the date and are a good fit. We will then send a link to schedule an in-person or virtual consultation with our design and/or planning team.


  • At the consultation, we will go over all of your design choices and ideas, break down your needs and wants, and discuss how to best serve you as a client.
    • How to prepare for our meeting: To make the most out of your initial consultation with us: come prepared with a general color palette, budget range, rough quantities of items on your wish list and a Pinterest board if you have one. This will allow us to provide a mood board and a more accurate proposal should you wish to book with us! The details can always be determined after you have more time to plan. It’s most important to secure your date! 
  • At the meeting, we will give you a packet of information detailing our price points, a sample proposal and sample mood board to assist in making your decision to book us.

After your consultation

  • Within 7 days, you will decide whether or not to secure our floral services with a $1,500 deposit and signed contract. Our planning service deposit is a separate fee and will be 50% of your total planning fee. These will be combined together on once invoice.

When you decide to book us!
