The Beauty of Flowers

“I like to think a flower opens itself to outgrow its planted-ness, and that it yearns to be carried away.” ~ Author Unknown

The Love of Flowers

Welcome to Flora Romantica. We’re a florist design team specializing in timeless, bespoke weddings and events. We work closely with our clients to create memorable flowers and fresh details. We first approach our designs by letting the flowers speak for themselves. As we drive from Modesto to the San Francisco Flower Mart, our conversations are woven with meaningful ideas about flowers and what our clients want. Authenticity and depth are a constant theme in our compositions. We understand that texture, movement, and complexity of tone are essential to artfully designed florals, from the wildly romantic to the sleek and contemporary.

Every Bouquet…

In regards to weddings, we believe the bride’s bouquet has the potential to be, indeed should be, an art-piece. The bouquet is the final adornment that elevates the bearer above everything and all other flowers at the wedding. When people look at a bride with the bouquet, they should feel their breath catch in their throats. We feel florists often miss their callings as artists when designing for their clients, but we embrace the call and accept the challenge to create arrangements that make guests want to reach out and touch them. Wedding flowers (or for any event) should be experienced, not something that sits ignored in the middle of a table. As florists and designers, we must keep our fingers on the pulse of style. Flowers in bouquets and centerpieces should be treated with the respect they deserve and elevated to the realm of fine art. We hold fast to the importance of choosing product that lends itself to naturally curated floristry: color, texture, form, and seasonal flowers.

“The first flower of the year is like land after sea.” ~ Thomas Wentworth Higgins
