What if there is a weather Disaster and all of your crops are ruined?
Our services begin here on our farm, but we will never sacrifice your event or happiness on the rare occasion that unpredictable weather damages our crops. If our our plants fail, we go next to other local growers whom we know and trust. If we can't find what we need at their farms, we go to the regional floral wholesale distributor in Burlington, VT - the same place conventional florists source all of their flowers, and we select flowers and greens that make sense for your style and our location. There is no change in price for wholesale flowers.
What is Available?
Our wedding and event flowers are seasonal, which means that your event will have the freshest flowers perfectly matched to your date. From rare specialty tulips and daffodils in the spring, to peonies (again- we love the fancy ones!), garden roses, and then finally dahlias in the fall - we can meet any color and style preference. We spend hours pulling your custom visual proposal together, and it will include any extra varieties we might want to fall back on - just to be sure you have a clear sense for the availability of flowers. Have a certain dream flower that you just have to have for your day? No problem, we are connected to all of the best growers in the country and we can get your protea, specialty roses, succulents, etc. at wholesale prices, just like a conventional florist. We'll skip the distributor, though - and go straight to the grower for the freshest flowers possible!
HOW ARE YOUR FLOWERS DIFFERENT?
Locally grown flowers are cut at the last possible moment to meet your event's schedule. It's hard to explain how amazing fresh cut flowers are. When you compare local blooms to those that have been shipped hundreds of miles in tight boxes, there really is no contest. We use the same post-harvest care methods as conventional florists and store our flowers in a walk-in cooler, too. But the varieties are seasonally appropriate to the Adirondacks - and often un-sourceable and at a much lower cost than those from wholesale distributors. You would not believe what they charge per stem for a dahlia! We are part of the growing seed-to-vase movement, and we grow and nurture uncommon and uncommonly beautiful flowers. We have extensive collections of flowers, and we're always adding more to the farm. From romantic sweet peas to hundreds of dahlias - our flowers are anything but ordinary. Our lead grower is an alumna of Floret Flower Farm's on-farm workshop program, and we're members of the Farmer-Florist Collective, the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, and Women Who Farm. She attends workshops with some of the leading designers in the country at Flower School, New York, and with other specialty cut flower farmer-florists.
Can I afford Specialty Cut Flowers?
YES! We have built an offering of wedding and event services that can meet just about any floral budget. Best of all- our services are transparent. See the Pricing page for up-front pricing. There is no up-selling unless you want more. We can do the extras, too - arbors, large scale installation, etc.
What if I want to change my order?
No problem. You can edit or add to your wedding order up to 30 days prior to your event. Your flowers and greens will be grown to meet your style and color preferences. We can add extra centerpieces to your order or change personal flower numbers, etc.
Do you have Design fees?
No. The full price of our items (except for tax and delivery/installation-if you want it) is as listed on the Pricing page.
How do I reserve your wedding design services?
Wedding/event dates are reserved upon our receipt of the contract and deposit listed on the invoice summary that comes with your visual proposal.
