Tell me a little bit about your business!
LeafHopper Designs is a petite but powerful design studio with its roots in Maryland. We’ve been in business since 2006, striving to create the most magical and unforgettable wedding memories for our clients. We offer full service weddings for those who prefer everything to be taken care of for their big day, as well as “weddings-to-go” for more budget-conscious couples. We also offer some floral packages for those clients who would like to keep it simple and just order and go.
What makes your work unique?
My work is unique because I have a pretty unique background. I have degrees in theater and studio art with a heavy emphasis on sculpture and history. This combination of disciplines has given me a rich foundation in which to create new and interesting designs for the discerning client. I have a huge range of styles from classic to modern to avant garde. You can expect to see French Rococo in one wedding and Gothic Boho in the next.
What is your ideal client like?
My ideal client wants to make a big impact on their wedding day and can trust me to bring their dreams to life. They love colors, textures, unusual flowers, and thinking outside of the box. Tell me your crazy ideas and let’s make it happen!
How do you work with couples to bring their floral dreams to life?
In a perfect world, I meet the couple in person so we can coordinate wedding details along with the style and mood of the wedding. The couple brings pictures for inspiration and we discuss color, logistics, and anything else that may be important in order to fulfill the order. Sometimes Zoom, phone calls, or email becomes the best way to communicate, as some of my clients are out of town. After an initial meeting, I create a proposal with a mood board to establish the overall design. Once the client signs on, a sample session is scheduled to view a mock-up in person. Every step is taken to collaborate with the couple to produce a unique floral design experience.
