Tell me a little bit about your business!
We are two sisters who always have had a passion for weddings, crafts, art, & DIY’s. We started Sapphire & Lace Design, our floral and event design company, in 2014 out of our mom’s basement, using our grandpa’s workbench and the few “rental” pieces we acquired from doing our own wedding flowers earlier that year. We’ve since moved into the sweetest little studio space (we lovingly call the Cottage), curated a complete rental inventory, and are still using our grandpa’s workbench. We’ve solely focused on weddings, so we understand the ins and outs of wedding planning, the roles each vendor plays and how we all work as a team, and what styles and colors make an impact in each of the unique venues throughout the city. We consider ourselves wedding experts!
What makes your work unique?
We pride ourselves on the boutique experience we offer our couples. As two sisters (with a mighty set-up crew behind us), we take on a limited amount of weddings a year to provide our clients with the attention to detail that the most special event in their lives deserves. We take time to understand our couple’s vision, provide them with the most visual experience including thorough design plans, custom sketches, and venue walkthroughs, and personally execute the gorgeous designs on their wedding day. Because of this comprehensive approach, we’re not just concentrating on the floral aspect of the day but the big picture, so that the end result is beautiful styling that leaves no detail untouched!
What is your ideal client like?
Our ideal client loves flowers and appreciates the smallest of details. They want a wedding day that feels like their love: beautiful, personal, and timeless. Family traditions and heirlooms are important to them and they chose to honor those at their wedding. While our ideal client has a vision for their day, they TRUST their florist to guide them in the right direction, offer new ideas, and execute their dream wedding flawlessly!
How do you work with couples to bring their floral dreams to life?
We approach your wedding florals as event designers. We consider how the flowers work with the other elements in the wedding decor (attire, colors, linens, lighting, venue, etc.). We love incorporating different textures and colors to achieve a certain style or feel. While many couples have similar styles or color palettes, there is always a way to create a unique design that is special to each of our clients!
