a note from Breesa ...
I believe very much in service, the creative process, and Love. This floral adventure is the way I've found to combine and celebrate all three. Each event I get to spoil lovebirds, create an environment filled with over the top romance, and use my skills to work with the most amazing people.
I've always loved flowers, and gardens; constantly amazed by the transformation we can feel by being surrounded by something so pleasant to all of our senses. Over the past 14 years, I've worked coast to coast and sometimes crossing seas to follow my flowery dreams. Working for various companies, on diverse creative projects, and with discerning clientele I've gathered all of my most favorite processes and lessons to create BLOOMS. I find it very important to take inspiration from my clients' dreams and needs as well as the flowers themselves.
My daughter is no longer teetering at my ankles like in the above photo, she's mostly found off in her own make-believe (and I imagine flower filled) world. She is very much the inspiration for moving mindfully throughout my day and with my business. Taking time, cultivating joy, being attentive to family, and limiting the number of my full service bookings to ensure time for a personalized client experience.
Service to others is important in our family and I actively participate as a mentor for the local high-school's flower club; repurposing flowers left over from large events to expose the students to a variety of product, projects, and styles, Hiring high-school interns and taking part in the Workability program gives me the opportunity to share my love for the art of flowers while showing the behind the scenes of running a creative business. I am also honored to have been a part of the 2017 San Diego Wish Upon a Wedding.
About the BLOOMS process: During consultations I love to create inspiration boards full of colors, flower types, and big picture plans. I adore providing custom sketches of designs, collecting details, and creating samples of what centerpieces will look like to stir excitement and anticipation about the plans we've decided on. A few weeks before the event I go to the flower market and walk through the aisles reserving flowers based on your ideal list we've put together. I love to leave a little magic in the ordering process so I go back to the market a few days before the wedding to gather armfuls of the flowers that bring about that extra spark of inspiration to create a design that is something unlike any other event your guests are going to attend.
