Silk Flower Arrangements, With a Flare - FromRoehmWithLove.com
From Roehm With Love is by far one of the most intriguing Silk Flowers designers I have ever seen or worked with. I was recently in Florida (I originally live in Alaska) helping my uncle and his wife prepare for their wedding. As a bridesmaid one thing she asked me to do was help find a local florist who (her exact words here..) "would make her ceremony beautiful, elegant, and truly one of a kind". She didn't want to have the same flowers or silk flower arrangements that are so stereotypical for Florida weddings. Her colors where green and white with tan and turquoise accents. That's a very specific color scheme. And needless to say I found it overwhelming finding a place with such specific requirements.
It took a while, but I found From Roehm With Love and knew it was 'the one'. Joseph, the owner, has a magnificent eye for design and offers up an array of beautiful arrangements. He's also more than willing to work WITH you- not FOR you. He really wants to make sure you love what you receive. The end product should be both your vision and his. And he really strives to make that happen. His shop only started in 2006, which I think has sort of made it a hidden gem. Because it isn't a long-known floral shop, many people skip over it- opting for local flower shops that are more 'traditional' and 'widely known'. But don't let his short years in business fool you- this man has an amazing attention to detail and a wonderful sense of customer service.
My aunt was very specific in what she wanted... yet very vague. She wanted something 'different' yet 'elegant' and most of all 'stunningly beautiful'. Combine the three and most local flower shops were like "What in the world am I supposed to do with that?". Joseph, on the other hand, did a remarkable job. He used his imagination and her color scheme to create an array of awe-inspiring creations that pulled the entire wedding together.
To me, the flowers were the highlight of her entire ceremony. I could not have imagined a better outcome. She was so thrilled she actually cried (okay- a lot of brides to that, but she was genuinely thankful for Joseph's work). I wish I would have taken the time to take a few pictures of the flowers. But Joseph has set my standards very high for what a florist is supposed to be. And now, just this Christmas, I got engaged. I want an Alaskan wedding, but I'm hoping I can persuade Joseph to ship his beautiful faux floral arrangements through the mail to me. I couldn't imagine using any other florist aside from FromRoehmWithLove.com
