describe your artistic style: Emily Rose Flower Crowns specializes in exquisite, high-quality silk bridal crowns. They are designed and handcrafted with carefully chosen colors and silk blooms so that the crown is both lush and beautiful but also made to last forever and won't wilt or fall apart on your wedding day. Because of their materials and quality, they become a heirloom that can be worn again, put on display or given to the next generation. Note: Upon request I am able to make crowns out of fresh flowers (if local or willing to have me travel) or dried flowers.
what inspires you? Flower crowns represent a free spirit, care-free kind of disposition that's so beautiful to me. To be honest, I've actually never been a huge fan of flowers themselves (or at least the type of fan you would expect a flower-focused business owner to be) but I think something magical happens when you weave them into a crown and wear them, something that makes more and more girls want to wear them on their wedding day because the brides that do look a little extra stunning. As a former bride-to-be, I know firsthand all the work involved in planning a wedding and know how stressful it can become if you don't learn to delegate - someone to design, shop for, and create the things you know you want. I want to be that for brides and give them one less thing to worry about so they can focus more on the big picture of marrying the love of their life.
what do you love about weddings? I love what weddings symbolize - commitment, sticking together through the thick and thin, a forever kind of love that we all long for. If I could, I would celebrate with every client, hear their love story, gush over their love, and attend the wedding itself. I find myself caring about my client like I would my friend - one, because they’ve trusted me with such an important detail on the biggest day of their life but two, because I know marriage isn’t always easy but they are choosing to choose love and that's something to cherish and celebrate!
what's your travel policy? Since my crowns are made with silk flowers, I can ship nationwide and internationally. However, if a bride requests fresh flowers for her crown and wants me to travel to her wedding location, I am more than willing to work out a travel package with them!
