Our Story

OUR PHILOSOPHY

On the topic of designing weddings, our philosophy is simple: surround yourself with things you love. In those early moments together, our craving to create something fresh and personal rises. We will put our heads together to hatch wildly beautiful ideas, embellish upon what your style really means, share where we come from and why it matters, and feed our senses. The intimate wedding that we will soon enter will have sumptuous layers—of color, floral texture, personal treasures, and out of the ordinary ideas—that slowly unravel into a delightful party. Because let's face it, your wedding is the ultimate party of your life, experienced by the people who really matter most. So let's be audacious and fresh and unexpected. Let's be ourselves.

OUR PROCESS

We are interested in transforming wonderfully natural settings into beautiful celebrations. You may not have a favorite bloom in mind or clear vision to express and that's OK. We will talk about seasonal flower offerings, textures, color palettes and desired moods until we arrive at a design that reflects your personalities. We love refining details to create a more meaningful and personalized experience for you and your closest family and friends. While flowers, installations and complete event design are our first love, we also dip into the workshop scene and provide creative consulting.

ABOUT MANDY

Known for her natural yet singular eye for flowers and design, Mandy is well-versed in both intimate gatherings with a nod to nature and fabulous, large-scale and highly-customized events. Mandy's background in fashion and marketing informs her work with a flair for color, textiles, sense of proportion and casting a mood in a space. She is lucky enough to call the Hawaiian Islands home, and delights in integrating native plants, flowers, and fruits when designing tablescapes. She believes that a simple gathering is often times the most beautiful.
