What motivated you to start your business?

I founded 7Blooms out of a love for bringing people's stories to life through flowers. It's not just about providing bouquets and centerpieces; it's about crafting a personal, immersive experience for each wedding. I saw a need for a florist that really listens and adds a unique touch to every arrangement, making it a meaningful part of each celebration. To do this, I assembled an amazing team who share my vision for innovative and customer-focused service, and the drive to create memorable, emotion-evoking experiences through the art of floristry.


What is your best advice for engaged couples?

It is important to establish a clear and realistic floral budget early on. Couples should determine how much of their overall wedding budget they can allocate to flowers; our recommendation is to set aside 8-10% of the total wedding budget. Floral decor enhances the beauty and ambiance of the day, so it should be an important aspect of the overall budget.

What is your favorite trend for weddings currently?

Peach Fuzz 3-1023 is Pantone's color of the year and is a dreamy choice for wedding florals. This peachy shade is perfect for adding a warm, romantic vibe to floral decor, whether in bouquets or infused into reception arrangements. This color also lends itself well to floral arches and aisle decorations, where it can be paired with softer pastels or bold contrasts for a truly memorable and trend-setting wedding design. We have been getting a lot of requests for peach florals and we are excited to work magic with this versatile color!


What sets your brand or business apart?

Customization is the cornerstone of 7Blooms. We believe that like every love story, every floral design should be unique. Our process begins with understanding the vision of our clients, integrating their personal style and the theme of the event into every design. From lavish centerpieces to elegant bouquets, each design is a personalized expression of the client's dream. We believe that offering a highly personalized experience, where each client feels their vision and preferences are deeply understood and valued, sets us apart.


What is the most gratifying part of your business?

The journey from initial consultation to the final execution is a highly personalized experience. As we collaborate with our clients, understanding their vision and infusing it with our expertise, we create more than just floral arrangements - we create memories that last a lifetime. The gratitude and appreciation we receive from our clients, knowing that we played a part in one of the most important days of their lives, is immeasurably rewarding.
