Here's a confession…couples who make a statement with their wedding florals are totally my jam. Flowers can be one of the most colorful, textural, eye-catching, not to mention sweetest-smelling parts of your big day…why not use them to SAY SOMETHING? One reason why I love Community Flower Shop so much is because they totally get this. Patrick and his team aren't just florists; they are artists whose medium just happens to be flowers. Nothing they do is cookie-cutter. Every event is treated as the unique celebration that it is, and therefore each arrangement, bouquet, boutonniere, chuppah, arch, flower crown, etc. is unlike any that came before. Using standard principles of design – like color, balance, and lines – Community Flower Shop is known for creating magic with texture and movement. If you agree that wedding day flowers should be reflective of your personality and style, then raise your hand…then hit them up!

Tell me a little bit about your business!
We are a full service flower shop that has been in business since 2006 and has grown to execute about 30 – 40 weddings and events each year. We have learned our craft from experience and many talented floral designers over the years. Continuing to grow our knowledge of flowers and design is our priority. While we didn't expect floral designing to be our careers, it is our passion for it that has kept us doing what we love!
What makes your work unique? Why should brides and grooms hire you?
While we deliver arrangements all over the city every day, our team is dedicated to providing a relaxed, stress-free wedding experience. There is so much planning that goes into a wedding; choosing flowers should be the fun part! We meet with each client individually and are very responsive to emails to ensure each client's questions are answered promptly. Pinterest is a great tool for gaining inspiration but we always put our twist on arrangements and will never copy photos exactly. We pride ourselves on using our creativity along with our client's vision to make something unique for every event and make sure that client's tastes and personality shine through our designs!
What is your ideal client like?
Our ideal client is someone who wants something unique, creative, and anything but ordinary. We gravitate towards organic, natural design but love doing clean, modern design as well. We love working with clients who are excited about their wedding flowers and trust us to make their wedding day all they could have imagined and more!
What is your approach to floral design? How do you work with couples to bring their floral dreams to life?
Technology is great but we love to meet with our couples in person and really get a feel for who they are and what they want (or don't want) for their wedding flowers. What they don't want is most times the best way to figure out what they do want! We love to bring in different textures, evoke movement, and bring in the elements/principals of design (such as balance, scale, color, line, etc.) to create our unique arrangements.
What other items do you offer?
We have a large selection of multi-height and multi-colored mercury glass votives and containers, along with various glassware for centerpieces from short to tall. Metals orbs, glass terrariums, chandeliers, hanging branches, and test tube stands are also in our inventory, along with a natural birch arch that can be used to frame in a ceremony as a chuppah/mandap, sweetheart table, or it even be used as single poles for an asymmetric design! We also have access to rental items such as candelabras, plant walls, trees, and much more to make your event stand out!
