Last month I announced a new project for re:find Joy: Deconstructed Bouquets. It has been a Joy to bring this project to life, and I look forward to creating many beautiful vignettes in the years to come. These Bouquets were born out of so many things, from questions on the wind, to musings in the evenings after work. But mainly, there are here because you ASKED.
I have spent a lot of time around flowers and weddings. In the last few years, I have been listening intently and soaking up every experience that I have had, in anticipation of this aha moment that would come. Not a week has passed that I haven't heard random strangers ask THE question, "Do you know anyone who does bouquet preservation?" or "Is there a good way to preserve my bouquet so that I can enjoy it for years to come?" After hearing these pleas and not having a good answer, I realized that there was something I could do.
So I started getting flowers and taking "portraits" of styled florals based on bouquets I have admired, so that I would have some beautiful Readymade prints to offer to all of you. It is my hope that you will see that flowers can indeed last a lifetime, and be cherished for always. If you have a wedding bouquet, or just an arrangement that you would like to hold onto and remember, I would love to work with you to create something magical.
Deconstructed Bouquets now have their own home, so that those looking for this service will not have to go searching high and low to find it. I'm so looking forward to meeting all of you who want to preserve your memories!
